Full wife #galicia

Errol Schneegurt
 

Working on the Lemberg project there are terms that stand out as not
common. The word Gattin referring to a wife, spouse or partner is used
to show the connection between the person who died and the survivor.
I came across one that was written as voll gattin meaning, in this case,
a fully or full wife.

Would anyone know why and what it means when the word full or fully
is used along with wife, survivor or partner.

Lwow Address Directory for 1916 now searchable #galicia

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

A Lwow address directory for 1916 is now full-text searchable at
http://genealogyindexer.org, "Ksiega adresowa krol. stol. miasta
Lwowa." Searches include this and all other sources by default. You can
restrict a search to just this directory by appending {d917} to your
search term, like this: kalter {d917}.

This directory was very recently digitized by the Library of Congress'
Preservation Reformatting Division, and is now searchable thanks to
their gracious cooperation and the assistance of Regina Frackowiak.
Search results currently link to individual images rather than the
Library's usual "page-turner interface," which will be available in the
future. The entire directory can be downloaded as a PDF from
http://1.usa.gov/1bGaqbG.

As far as I know, this is the first "new" major Lwow-specific directory to
become available online in several years. Because of its date, it might
be especially useful to researchers of families displaced by WWI,
although it is unclear to me when its information was collected. Some
people listed in the 1914/1915 Lwow War Refugees Address Directory
as having fled >from Lwow to Vienna do not appear in this directory,
while others do. I have not compared the two sources carefully. The
War Refugees Address Directory, "Ksiega adresowa pamiatkowa i
adresowa wygnancow wojennych z Galicyi i Bukowiny," is also
searchable at genealogyindexer.org.

For full updates about sources added to genealogyindexer.org,
subscribe to the email list at http://genealogyindexer.org/news. This
is one of 22 directories added in the past week alone.

ViewMate Request - Photo dates #general

Carol Hochstadt
 

Dear Genners,

I've posted four family photos on ViewMate. I am seeking help to
determine the approximate dates of the photos and (for 2 of the 4)
whether they were taken in the US or in Romania. Knowing these facts
would be a big help in my effort to identify the people.

Also, I noted that the children whom I believe to be girls in two of
the photos appear to have very "boyish" hair. I would appreciate
knowing whether this was common at the time of the photographs....or
might these 'girls' be 'boys?'

The photos are on ViewMate at the following addresses:

Re: New Jersey Naturalizations - State Archives #general

David,

The New Jersey State Archives are in Trenton. The NJSA website
http://www.state.nj.us/state/archives/search.html
notes it has the following naturalization records which only mentions
Union County:

County Records

Original County Records
Varies by county. Includesj of the peace dockets, naturalizations, tavern
licenses, and marriage records.
Original county court of common pleas naturalizations for the following
counties: Burlington(1790-1956), Camden (1844-1932), Essex (1792-1934), Mercer
(1838-1940), Ocean (1850-1966), Sussex (1817-1948) and Union counties

I know that they had lived in Union and Bergen counties, NJ, and I spoke to
the municipal offices in both counties where naturalization records for

my family.

I've also hit dead ends with National Archives. This leads me to think that
they're*probably* held by the State Archives in Newark. Unfortunately...
they don't fulfill long-distance search requests. You must go search in-person.

They provide a list of independent genealogists who sell their research
services, and I contacted a couple, but never heard back. So, I'm wondering
if anyone might know of anyone in the area who perhaps already performs
those sorts of services, hopefully for not too steep of a fee? (I'm just a
few hours away, and I have friends in Philadelphia whom I can stay with, if
it turns out that I absolutely have to go there in-person in order to search
for these records!)

Methinks it is an error, if it had meaning, you could find it on Google.

I only find:

Erika Voll, Gattin, ... [Erika being the wife of a Mr Voll.]

And numerous variations of:
... eine liebe volle gattin und mutter
... seine reu volle Gattin.
[space errors due to an English derived OCR programme?]
ment is: liebevolle and reuvolle Gattin.

What is slightly possible is "Vollgattin" as a single word, found once,
which seems to be part of nazi ss-ideology by Himmler:

"Die Frau im harmonischen Naturell ist die Vollgattin, eine ausgezeichnete
Mutter ihrer meist sehr schönen, gesunden und hochbegabten Kinder."

I would translate that as "the perfect wife".

Looking for BAUMs #ukraine

Hello,

This is my first time emailing the group, so I hope I am doing it right.

I am looking for information on my paternal great-grandmother's
parents. They are >from Hungary and their names are Israel BAUM and Rosa
COHEN BAUM. They are the parents to Sadie BAUM, born about 1892 in
Hungary and she died 21 November 1953. Sadie was married to Benjamin
MOSKOWITZ, also >from Hungary, in 1911 in New York City. I have found
that he was born in Kosino, which I believe is in modern day Ukraine.
I'm hoping to find Sadie's siblings if possible, to see if there are
any and if there are any ancestors or more about Sadie herself. I
haven't been able to find much searching in Ancestry other than I
found Sadie and Benjamin in the 1920 and 1930 censuses with their
children Harold and Leonard. Leonard is my grandfather.

Thank you for the help!
