Re: Naturalization in the UK #unitedkingdom

Dear Henry,

I have an early certificate of naturalization (1897) for my great
great grandfather, so it may not be valid to your question. But it
didn't ask for the date of emigration. I assume there was a
presumption of having landed legally and so the actual date was not
in question.

What was important was that the applicant could show that he had
resided within the UK for at least five years. The printed form for
my gg gf asked where he had lived for past five years of the last
eight in the United Kingdom.

I was lucky in that my great great grandfather had lived in the UK
for nearly fifteen years and described all the street addresses.
There is some possible confusion as the Metropolitan Police report
stated he had lived in the country for twenty-five years.

Providing there is no privacy issues at hand, the National Archives
hold all naturalization records. You should check their website and
do a search for his name and see if a file number comes up.

Good luck,

Jeremy

Help: Russian translations (Poland) needed - ViewMate #general

Olivier Dzik <olivierdzik@...>
 

Dear all,
I've posted one vital record of a gg grandfather >from Sieldce a town from
Poland (names are mostly GALONZKA, and SIEKER). Records are probably in Russian
and I need a detailed translation,(all mentioned names, profession, cause of
death).

It is on ViewMate at the following address ... nb: A
particular attention on the dates would be helpful as there appears to be
several years between the birth and the registration dates (to be checked if
this si true)

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM25818

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Thank you very much and kind regards and Pessah Samehah.

I have searched many records and cannot find the male name Chvull anywhere.
Closest I have found is Chawel. Could this be the same name?

Anyone ever hear of the name Chvull?

Cannot find any records. #general

Ken Falkson <mokmanrs@...>
 

Hello all,

Despite all my efforts I have not been able to find any records concerning
my paternal line (FALKSON) here on Jewishgen. There are records for that
surname in the correct area (Belarus) but I cannot match any of the given
names to known family members (Yosef Abbeh FALKSON born c1860, Chippeh
Raiseh SILVERMAN born c1860, their children Avrum Itzhuk FALKSON born 1884,
and Basche FALKSON born 1892).

Am I perhaps missing something in the transliteration of the names >from
Yiddish to Russian to English (or some variation of that)?

What other sources of information might I pursue beyond Jewishgen? I have
contacted the archives in Belarus but got no response.

The specific towns I am interested in as potential places of birth are
Minsk, Budslav, Borisov, Yaloch, and Vilnius. Other surnames of spouses
are GORDON and SILVERMAN.

Thank you for your insights.

Sephardic SIG #Sephardim Re: finding relatives in Salonika or Chanakale #sephardic

Lee Azus <leeazus@...>
 

I visited Canakkale in 1988. At the time there were six Jews living
there. Most were elderly and were introduced to me as "Los Viejos."
There was a Mr. Hatem who had the keys to the synagogue. I don't know
who might be there now. I was told that most Jews had either moved to
Istanbul or Israel.

By the way, my great-grandmother, Boulisa Varon had a sister, Esther,
who married a Hakim, probably Haim. Esther came to the USA (Chicago)
as a widow around 1910. She brought her daughter Lena, and son, Sam.
Lena married Isadore Glick. Sam married Celia Getzug.

Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Irish Jewish Ancestors #lithuania

Ann Rabinowitz
 

There are many places to find information about Irish Jews and in the past
I have written about some of them on the JewishGen Digest and the Jewish
Gen Blog. Today, however, I provide another means of looking up Irish
ancestors. It is checking them out on Ancestry.com which not only has
records >from America, but those >from Ireland and other places as well.

This is not a comprehensive listing, but a snapshot of what you can find
if you have a mind to. I started by looking up my favorite search name of
COHEN and plugged in Dublin in the Ancestry.com search engine on its front
page. There I found some of the following:

Records There are immigration records, particularly of individuals who
crossed over Canadian and Mexican borders. For instance, Leah and Alfred
Cohen arrived through Niagara Falls, NY, on September 23, 1929. Anna Cohen
Shiller arrived through Laredo, Texas on July 26, 1941. A number of
the Irish immigrants are listed as leaving >from the port of Queenstown,
Ireland, and others >from various ports in England such as Liverpool and
Southampton.

In addition, there are naturalization records. One is Jacob Cohen who was
born in Dublin in 1899 and who lived in Baltimore, Maryland. Another group
of records are those >from Griffith's Valuation, 1848-1864. There, I found
Abraham Cohen, Esq., who had a residence in 1853 in Ranelegh, North, at
13 Ranelegh Road (west side) which was comprised of a house, office and
small garden. Also, there is the England and Wales Probate Calendar,
1858-1966, which lists Jane Cohen who died October 2, 1877, late of 67
Grafton-street, Dublin.

The great record sets are the Ireland, Births and Baptisms, 1602-1911,
where I found Caroline Cohen, born April 16, 1880, the daughter of Abraham
Cohen and Henrietta Hamburgher; the Ireland, Civil Registration Marriages
Index, 1845-1958, where I found David Isaac Cohen and Annie Leventon who
married in 1882; and the Ireland, Civil Registration Deaths Index, 1864-1958,
where I found Hyman Cohen (1876-1951).

Photographs - Not only did records pop up, but also photos of individuals
as well as tombstones in Dublin's Dolphin Barn Cemetery. For example, there
is a photo of Miriam Leah Cohen who married a Rosenberg and also found is
her tombstone with her dates of 1840-1913.

This gives you some idea of what is available and there is so much more
to wade through. Good luck!!!
