LAZARUS in UK #general

Arnon Hershkovitz <arnonh@...>
 

Hi!

I'm doing my first steps in UK Genealogy and would like to get some tips,
help, etc...

I'm trying to find the birth certificates of:

Fanny LAZARUS (nee: LEVINE), probably born Newcastle-on-Tyne, UK around
1885/6. Also, her husband's, Sam LAZARUS, Born Nottingham, U.K.

I'd like to find also marriage certificate for them, and at least a date
for their marriage. They've been married in Nottingham, after which they
emigrated to South Africa.

Thanks a lot,

Arnon Hershkovitz

Re: NY Vital Records Search - correction #general

Howard Zakai
 

Dear all,

I wanted to make a correction of what I believe is an error. As far as I
know, NYC birth records after 1909 are not accesible to the public unless
one is the individual or a proven direct descendant. As for deaths after
1948, public access is limited but not denied. >from thereon, one needs to
write to the NYC Dept. of Health, pay $15 and show identification. I have
gotten death records of distant relatives who passed away within the last
30 years.

Birth records before 1910, marriage records prior ro 1938, and death
records prior to 1949 are open to the public at the NYC Municipal Archives.

JGS of SW FL April mtg #general

Kim Sheintal
 

Dear Jewishgenners,

If you are going to be in the Sarasota Manatee area on Sunday, April 13,
please join us at 1:00 PM for the JGS of SW FL meeting at the JCC, 582 S.
McIntosh Road in Sarasota.

Program: The Jews of Africa / A Close-up look at our brothers and sisters
in Ghana and Uganda by Rabbi Barbara Aiello - There was a time when we
Caucasian Jews would have thought that "African Jew" might be an
oxymoron. But no longer. Global communications, international research
and maybe most important, a new attitude of welcome and appreciation has
led the worldwide Jewish community to seek out and applaud our African
Jewish brothers and sisters. Rabbi Barbara Aiello, spiritual leader of
Temple Beth El in Bradenton and rabbinic consultant to Kulanu (the
international Jewish organization that supports isolated Jewish
communities) will share a personal glimpse of important African Jewish
groups. Learn about the Lemba tribe, >from whom Kohanim genetic markings
have been traced, to the Abayaduya Jews of Uganda to the Jewish community
of Ghana.

Language of letter: either Czech or Slovakian #scandinavia

The language is either Czech or Slovakian -- it's easy to recognise those
two languages >from the frequent use of H where other Slavonic languages have
G. Even more characteristic is the "hacek" (little V-shape) over R...
As for whether it is Cech or Slovakian, I am not able to tell.
Since the letter was dated Brezno 1870, I think there is a fairly good
chance it is Slovakian.
Unfortunately, my Czech and Slovakian aren't even nearly good enough to
translate it... :)

Good luck!

Kodis / Kodish family #latvia

KethZerdin@...
 

I am research my maternal grandmother's family. Her name, in England, was
Minnie KODYSS wife of Hirsh ( Harris ) ZERDIN. Her brother in USA was known
as Jacob KODISH. The Latvian State Archive translated her name >from the 1897
First All-Russian Census as Minka KODIS. This gives a variety of spellings of
her surname. She came >from Vilani in Latvia although she was born in 1876 in
Galenu pagasts in the Rezekne district of Latvia.

Last week I found an old postcard with a Russian narrative on the back.
Today I received the following translation

" To the eternal Memory of my dear cousin Mina.

from your loving ( illegible ) Tanya Sherg
If the memory is dear to you, keep it and don't forget, but if you don't need
any memory, then throw it whereever you like.

T Sherg

January 5/1/1913 "

Minnie's mother was Haja-Sora daughter of Abram ( surname unknown ) >from
Livani ( formerly Lievenhof ). This is my first knowledge of the SHERG
family. Can anyone help with this family ?

Is anyone looking for a Haja-Sora daughter of Abram ?

researchers in Falticeni and Moldava #romania

CrisisPro@...
 

I am searching for someone to do research for me in Falticeni, Romania
and a town in Moldava that has alternate spellings - sometimes Kozheutsy,
Corjauti, or Cosauti. This town is near Edinet (formerly Yednitz) and
Briceni.

Someone contacted me to say there is an old woman who is head of the
Jewish community in Falticeni but he never wrote back with her name. I
have no information about how to hire a researcher in Moldova - whether
all information is in a central archives in Chisinau or whether there are regional archives.


All help is appreciated.

I am looking for some good books on the history of Jews in Hungary. The
following books in Hungarian were recommended to me:

Magyarság / Zsidóság
Magyar Zsidó Családok
Zsidó élet Magyarországon

Would anyone in the group know these books?

Could anyone recommend other books in English (preferably) or Hungarian ?

I found "Names of Jewish Victims of Hungarian Labour Battalions" at the
