Offering NYC Lookups Municipal Archives / Library #general

A. E. Jordan
 

If anyone needs assistance with look ups and retrievals in New York City at the
Municipal Archives, Manhattan probate court, or the NY Public Library, I am getting
ready to do my next research trip.

What I can do is retrieve or read and transcribe vital records that you have
identified.I generally visit the NY Municipal Archives, Manhattan Probate
Court, and NY Public Library.

The Archives holds:
NYC births through 1909
NYC Deaths through 1948
NYC marriages both Health Department and City Clerk through 1949

Generally what I do is retrieve the files you have identified but can not access on
your own. I can buy copies $11 each at the Archives or take notes and email you.

Also if you have a "maybe" file I can look at it and compare it against your
information, example to see if the parent's names are what you expected. so
save buying something only to find it it is the wrong person.

I do appreciate a few dollars to help offset my expenses when I do this plus any
printing costs

Email me off list if you are interested and we can discuss what I can do.

Always happy to offer advice or comments about NYC area research and the tricks of
the trade.

View Mate Russian Translation #general

Rowena Zylali
 

Hello Genners,
I have posted a birth record in Russian for which I need a translation including as
many details as possible about places, routes, dates, and trades of the family as
possible. I already know the names of the parents and child.

There are five birth records recorded on the same day, for five children born in
different years, and I'm trying to understand why that would happen in a town where
they were not born. A sister is the first record, my Great Grandfather is the
second half of the page. Were they both born in Chavusy? Does it say how long
they were in this town? What is the name of this town in Suwalki where this
record was documented?

Any details you can provide would be tremendously appreciated.
https://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/responselist.asp?key=71446

Please respond via the form provided on the ViewMate image page.

Thank you very much.
Rowena Zylali

Re: DP Camp Records #general

Corinna Woehrl
 

Hello Sheryl,

the Birth Records >from 1945 on still underlie a retention period and
can't be "freely" viewed, but only by family members (has to be proved):

The retention period in Germany is as follows:
for birth records 110 years,
marriage r. 80 years,
death r. 30 years.

To research the DP Camp records my first try would be to contact the
International Tracing Services (ITS) in Bad Arolsen - they also have
files on the DP Camps and could possibly help directly or at least
locate the correct civil registry office:

https://www.its-arolsen.org/en/?caller=1

Regards >from Germany

Corinna Woehrl (nee Goslar) D-22955 Hoisdorf (between Hamburg and Luebeck)

Subject: DP camp records
What is the best place to look for birth records >from DP camps (German?)
