Israel Cohen #lithuania

stacey condren <staceycondren@...>
 

I have come to a complete dead-end, and I hope someone may be able to help
me. I have been searching for several years for my maternal great-great-
grandfather, Israel Cohen. There is one record of him in the US, along
with his children (Morris and Hyman), listed on the US 1920 census.
His eldest, and my name-sake, Sarah Rachael, was likely already out of
the house at that time. The address listed in the census is the same
as that on an envelope that my family still has, so I am absolutely
certain that this is him.

The census states that he is >from Kovna, but I can't find him anywhere
in JewishGen or on the Litvaksig site. I realize that his name was not
Cohen in the old country and have tried every variation of Kagen, etc..
Still, no luck. I now believe that his previous surname didn't resemble
Cohen at all. I've searched the spread sheets for an Israel with any
last name, birth records for his children with his name linked,
marriage record for him and Chaya Pizer. Any hints you may have or
direction for me would be appreciated.

Thank you!

Eileen ISAACS, Merle OSHRY, and Pamela ISAACS #general

Dear All and especially Rhodesians,

Recently I discovered family in Rhodesia/Zimbabwe of whom we were not aware.

I am told that Eileen CHARLES, my maternal cousin (3d cousin) married Walter
ISAACS (who somehow is also on our maternal family tree) and had 2 children
Pamela ISAACS and Merle OSHRY. Does someone reading this know them or of them,
please?

I am also looking for their close cousins, any children or grandchildren of
Annie and Jack MOSS of Bulawayo who died in the 1920s.

I am also looking for descendants of Lily and David BLUMBERG of Bulawayo.
I believe Marian/Marcia Landau died in Durban. So I am looking for a Child.
The other sister was Sophie Hannah Ruth who married a Mr Jacobson.

If anyone can help me I would be most grateful.

Thank you

Raphael HALPERN #general

Rosalind
 

Dear All,
I am hoping someone can help me find information on Raphael HALPERIN. Facts
known are that he appears on the UK 1911 census as a boarder with Myer
Halpern, ? his brother, in London. He had a brief marriage in 1911.

Verbal history is that there may have been brothers or a father with names
Israel and Bernhard and a sister Natalie. I am doubtful of this info.
Verbal history is that his family had a textile firm of some sort in London
and earlier in Vienna. ??
Verbal history has taken 2 paths. One is that he moved to Moscow and had a
family with at least one daughter.
The second path is that he went to Odessa in 1918 because he joined the
British Communist Party.

My research has found a Raphael Halpern (or several) who emigrated from
London to USA 1920-40.
I have a photo of him as a young man if anyone thinks they know my Raphael.
He was born possibly in 1887 or at least in 1880s.
This is just an educated guess that he might have suffered >from thyroid
disease.

He is a cousin.

I hope someone will recognize him.

Thank you

Re: French civil marriage and religion notation #general

Eve Line Blum <eve.line.blum@...>
 

In France, before separation of church and state and the law of
September 20, 1792, the registers of the civil status (NMD) were kept
by the priests. They were named "parish registers" (in French :
registres paroissiaux) and religion was written on the documents.

Since the law of 1792, the keeping of the registers is withdrawn to
the parish priests and handed to the mayors. The registers are now
called "registers of civil status" or "civil registry" (in French :
registres de l'etat civil). Henceforth, whatever is the religion of
the citizen, all registrations are made on the same register and
religion is no longer registered.

I am hoping to understand to get a full translation of the following
records, though I am most interested in understanding the years of each of
these records. Was the marriage of Abram Jolson to Brana much earlier than
registered? Is the same true for the birth of their son Moszek? Are these
the same Abram Jolson and Brana listed as the parents in Moszek Joelson's
marriage record >from Wyszogrod - my great grandparents?


http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM55303: Moszek
Joelson & Ryfka Dorembus Marriage 1887


http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM58310 : Abram
Jojelson & Brana Rogowa Marriage registered in 1882


http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM58312 : Moszek
Joelson birth registered in 1883

Thank you for any help you can be!!!

JewishGen's Subcarpathian SIG - Conference Update #ukraine

Lara Diamond
 

It was great meeting so many fellow Subcarpathia researchers last week
in Orlando!

First, some exciting news (which I didn't know about during our SIG
meeting): We won the Stern Grant! That means that the money from
that grant will go straight into paying for more records to be
photographed. (We still need additional donations to be able to get
all of the records that we've identified though--see below how you can
help).

During the SIG meeting, the following stats were shared as far as what
we have so far. This has all been done since last summer's meeting in
Seattle:

280 vital record books
21,426 images >from those books
251 of those books have been fully indexed for Jewish records

23,139 Jewish vital records transcribed
17,580 records searchable on JewishGen

There was also a representative in our SIG meeting >from FamilySearch
who said he may have records already photographed that we could
transcribe. I'm waiting for a complete list of those (the initial
list had many church books which aren't too useful to us), but
hopefully there will be documents of interest there.

If you'd like to contribute to our project to allow us to continue to
acquire records, you can donate to the Sub-Carpathia SIG General Fund
(which is tax-deductible if you're in the US) here:
