Political Terror--Shot in Moscow: Individuals from throughout the USSR #general

Marilyn Robinson
 

http://mos.memo.ru/

On this Russian language site are the names of many individuals (about
12,000) born in the USSR and other areas of the world, but who were
residents of the "Old Moscow" at the time they were executed. Both Jews
and non-Jews are included.

On the left side of the page is an alphabetical listing of streets, which
you need to click on to gain access to the individuals' names. Included,
in most cases, is place of birth, DOB, DOD, employment, address, and place
of burial.

Use an online translator such as Bing translator
(http://www.microsofttranslator.com/) if needed.

Searching for documents - Patent Applications #general

Jan R. Fine has asked about obtaining and using patent applications in
genealogical research. The Library of Congress has The Annual report of
the Commissioner of Patents for the year ... for the years 1840 onward.
See http://lccn.loc.gov/sf93094336

Many other libraries hold the series. Check www.worldcat.org for a library
near you.

The publication ceased in 1965. The series can be searched at
www.genealogybank.com/
See "Two Useful Newspaper Search Web Sites for Genealogists," Rodziny:
Journal of the Polish Genealogical Society of America, Vol. 34, No. 3,
Summer 2011, pp. 17-20. [CS49.P64]. Reprinted in Gen Dobry!, November 2011

European countries also publish their patent reports in the local language.

The original patent term under the 1790 Patent Act was decided individually
for each patent, but "not exceeding fourteen years." The 1836 Patent Act
(5 Stat. 117, 119, 5) provided (in addition to the fourteen year term) an
extension "for the term of seven years >from and after the expiration of the
first term" in certain circumstances. In 1861 the seven year extension was
eliminated and the term changed to seventeen years (12 Stat. 246, 249, 16).

The signing of the 1994 Uruguay Round Agreements Act then changed the
patent term >from seventeen years >from the date of issue to the current
twenty years >from the earliest filing date.

Patent applications contain very little basic genealogical information but
often reveal related persons and sometimes reveal related patents which
might reveal associates. They also reveal areas of interest to the person
researched.

Marcel Rosenfeld died on the Struma - Brick Wall Help #romania

Joel Ives
 

Lisa;

I maintain a database of the victims of the Struma tragedy since I had
relatives aboard the ship, namely, Itic and Sophia IANCU or JANCU. I have
no information about Marcel ROSENFELD except that he was 15 years old at the
time of his death and the was no one else aboard the Struma with this
surname. I have a hunch that his parents were not poor since the tickets
were relatively expensive. I guess there is a story as to why a 15 year old
was traveling without his parents or siblings, if he had any!

There is no database of Struma victims I'm aware of that lists cities where
individuals came from. I would suggest you get a copy of the book, "Death on
the Black Seas" by Douglas Frantz and Catherine Collins. This gives the
best account of the story of the Struma and has a complete listing of those
who died. There are other books; some written in Romanian, Hebrew and some
in English and many articles where you might get lucky and find additional
information about Marcel.

There was also an HBO documentary by Simcha Jacobovici but this could prove
to very difficult to get a copy of. I am mentioned in the credits of the
book and the HBO documentary since I supplied my research notes. Good luck
in your search, I've added you to my database.

...She also filled one out for Marcel Rosenfeld, listing him as a cousin as
well.
Marcel Rosenfeld died on the Struma.

I've considered perhaps finding a biography of the Struma victims that
might be
able to tell me where Marcel Rosenfeld was from.

Thanks,

Search Engine of Holdings in the Belarus Archives #belarus

davefox73@...
 

I accidently found a search engine in English that will find what records
are in the the Belarus Archives, not only the National Historical Archives
of Minsk and Grodno, but all the other archives as well.

Go to: <http://archives.gov.by/eng/index.php?id=search>

To get an idea of what is in the archives, do a search on "Jews" and then do
a separate search on your town or shtetl. You may have to try spelling
variations for your town or shtetl because I do not think the database
recognizes "sounds like".

Be sure to click on the individual search results to see the details along
with the fond, etc.

If you find something exciting, please share it on this discussion group.

I believe the United States Patent Office has all its patents available
online, for free. Their web site is:

<http://www.uspto.gov/>

And you can navigate >from there to the search screen, or take this shortcut:

<http://www.uspto.gov/patents/process/search/index.jsp>

They include patents >from 1790 to present, and allow searching in various
fields, including inventor name and assignee name. Searching for "Fine" in
those fields turned up 2 hits.

P.S. I found a cousin, with whom we are not otherwise in touch, by
searching the records for some of his patents.

Re: Natan Nate #general

tom
 

I suspect the "real" explanation lies buried beneath layers of custom
and Hebrew versus Yiddish spelling rules, but the answer is "yes."

In English, the name "Nathan" is spelled with a "th" to represent the
softer sound of the taf, pronounced as "s" by the Ashkenazim (and "t"
by the Sefardim).

"Nate" wasn't pronounced nay-t, as it would pronounced in English, but
rather nah-teh or noh-teh. And as a Yiddish nickname, even though it is
clearly connected to Nathan, it is spelled using the rules of Yiddish
spelling, using a tet rather a taf (or actually, a saf), and an ayin to
represent the vowel "eh."

A recent ViewMate posting of a tombstone with the name of "Natan Nate"

Is this typically meant as a nickname "Nate", an alternative to the
formal name of Natan or Nathan.
Or is this properly meant as a second given name, "Nateh", perhaps?
