Where is the best place to look for the birth certificates of
someone born in NYC 1890s-1905 (borough not certain) and the
death certificate of a Bronx resident who died around 1956?

Thanks,

JGSLA - April 13th - "Who Do You Think You Are" & "My Grandmother's Suitcase" #germany

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Los Angeles announces their next meeting
"Stories of Discovery." Date: Sunday, April 13, 2008

Of interest to German researchers will be our screening of the English journalist
and food writer, Nigella Lawson's, episode of "Who Do You Think You Are" in which
she traces her mother's side of the family, the Salmons (originally Solomons'
owners of J. Lyons and Co.) to Ashkenazi Jewish ancestors in the Netherlands and
the Rhineland of Prussia, Germany. She discovers that one of these ancestors,
Coenraad Sammes (later Coleman Joseph), fled to England to escape a prison
sentence following a conviction for theft!

German Historical Collection #germany

Nancy Fox <jessefox7@...>
 

Dear Siggers,
I think the archival German Historical Collection on a major fee-based
genealogy website is amazing...if you have not researched there yet.
I have a membership and never noticed it was available until today.
Let me know if you'd like more details.

Simply type in the person's name you are researching. Names may show out of
alphabetical order, so keep scrolling ahead until you find the name you seek. You
can add dates and other information, also, to keep searching and try other
spellings. Regards,

Nancy Fox Franklin, Tennessee, USA jessefox7@bellsouth.net

GOTTDIENER, Hungary #rabbinic

Sandor Bacskai <eretzhagar@...>
 

Hello,

I found a gravestone in Zenta (Senta, Serbia) that says, "HaRav
Pinches Aryeh haKohen ben Gaon T-lik". The date is 16 Heshvan
5664/1903).

I know that the Tiszalok Rav R' Shimshen Eliezer GOTTDIENER
(1805-1873) had a son Pinches, who born in Tiszalok, abt. 1843. He
lived in Tiszaluc, Zemplen County, and then in Egyek, Hajdu County,
where he served as shochet.

Did find Pinches GOTTDIENER's grave? I think so.

Does anybody know about him?

Regards,
