ViewMate translation requests - 1 in Russian + 2 in Polish #general

Richard Werbin <richard.werbin@...>
 

I've posted 2 vital records in Polish and 1 in Russian for which I need
translation.

I would like an English translation of all the genealogically significant
information.

Names (including parents, spouse, etc.), ages, locations (birth & current),
occupations.

Please respond via the form provided on the ViewMate image page.
Thank you very much.

The documents are on ViewMate at the following addresses:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM74872

I think this may be the 1890 death certificate in Russian for my great great
grandfather Nuta Wierzbicki . The name, date, place seem correct.

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM74873

This is an 1844 marriage certificate in Polish for my great great grandparents.
Nuta Wierzbicki & Liba Chustak in Szdlowiec.

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM74874

I think this may be the 1841 death certificate in Polish for my great great
great grandfather Szymcha Wierzbicki. The name, date, place seem correct. The
1844 marriage certificate says he was not alive at that time.

Re: Hiding in the 1940 census #general

Barbara Mannlein <bsmannlein@...>
 

I truly appreciate everyone's help.

David Rosen was kind enough to duplicate my ED search and confirmed that Great
aunt Mary was not listed as an inmate of the Home. Perhaps Aunt Lillian (who
has been dead for 30 yrs) misremembered the date she got her aunt Mary into
the Home. Was there was another home for Aged Hebrews and Mary was there
before entering the Home for Aged and Infirm Hebrews? (She was buried >from the
latter - so I know she was there in 1942!)

I guess this is one of those mysteries.

In addition to my earlier email and in response to suggestions emailed me
privately.

1. My husband's aunt told me she arranged Mary's admittance to the Home aft
date of death than 3½ years later.

2. As far as I have found, she did not have a middle name or initial and I've
traced her >from her birth in Kronach until her death in Aug 1942.

3. Except for the first 3 years immediately following marriage, she lived in
the Bronx: at 650 E 182 st & 1617 Nelson ave. Her son, after his marriage in
1937, lived in the Bronx at 1387 Jesup av. All are in the same area. I can't
see her moving to Manhattan when she was old and sick and alone.

I doubt if Mery is "my Mary" as W 111 st is in Manhattan, not the Bronx.
Also, the enumerator said she lived in same place in 1935. **But**, in 1935
"my Mary" lived in the Bronx w/her husband who died in Dec 1936.
In addition, she is listed as being born in NY when she was born in Germany.

**Again, my gratitude to all who tried to find her.**

GELBERG-GAWENDA #southafrica

Scooby Doo
 

Dear Fellow Genners,

I have just discovered an, until now, unknown family member.
This discovery was via her husbands Naturalization Records in what was then
Palestine in 1939.

I know GELBERG is a common surname, but I am hoping someone out there may be of
help in tracking down living descendants of this family, who may, or may not,
still be living in Israel or providing me with any more info on this family.

Here is all I have:
Szmul Iccok (Shmuel Yitzchak) GELBERG married Sarah Wiktorja (Sarah Victoria)
GAWENDA in Israel on 28 March 1926

Szmuel Iccok Gelberg was born in Warsaw in November 1897
His parents were Yehuda-Leib & Esther-Reizl Gelberg

Sarah Wiktorja GAWENDA, was born in Warsaw in March 1900
I do not have any information regarding her parents

The couple had 2 daughters both born in Tel-Aviv
1- Ada GELBERG born 1929
2- Ilana Aliza GELBERG BORN 1939

Hitting walls in Slovakia #general

Vicki Schulkin
 

Hello - I had such great luck asking this group a question about Poland, that
I thought I would try again for Slovakia. The village in Poland I asked about -
Solinka - was directly across the border >from Slovakia, near the town of Vysna
Jablonka. I know there were multiple marriages between the PACHTER family in
Solinka (my immediate ancestors), and the ROTH family in Vysna Jablonka and the
Humenne area. I am working with a member of the Roth family _ DNA shows pretty
conclusively that we are related, but we haven't been able to pin down exactly
how.

I am not sure where to look for advice, or records. I think the area was
considered to be in the Hungarian part of Austria-Hungary until WWI, then
Czechoslovakia between the wars. I see there are SIGs for Hungary, Austria-
Czech Republic, and Sub-Carpathia but I'm not sure if any of them cover this
area.

Any advice or suggestions would be very welcome!

Thank you,

Vicki Schulkin

Re: Sharing DNA with the Law Enforcement: FamilyTree DNA Revisited--Link Added

The Wall Street Journal had an article on August 23 about FamilyTree DNA being approached by the FBI requestiong uploading DNA for two casaes to see if there were genetic links to other users. The two cases involved a dead child whose body was never claimed and other was from a  rape scene. Bennett Greespan is interviewed as why he made the decision he did and the further involvment with law enforcement –50 agencies--and the  resulting changes in terms of service and creation of an advisory panel.  Less than 2 percent of customers requested opting out of the law-enforcement searches.The article also addresses the privacy concerns for those who believe a court order/warrant is needed to do the comparison in genetic genealogy. The issue of other family members included by the submission of the DNA test which could be compared with the DNA sample from law enforcement is also addressed.

 

In addition to Bennett Greenspan, Stefani Elkort Twyford, president of the Greater Houston Jewish Genealogical Society, is also quoted.

 

Thank you to Saul Issroff for sharing the article with us.

Henryk TABORSKI #germany

Yaron Wolfsthal
 

Dear Group,

In the course of my research about the WOLFSTHAL family of musicians,
I just finished a search for Henryk TABORSKI and family at IKG
(Israelitische Kultusgemeinde Wien) that led to zero results.

According to this link
https://musik-austria.at/mensch/henryk-taborski/, Henryk married that
granddaughter of Jewish musician Herman WOLFSTHAL (uncle of Prof Josef
WOLFSTHAL who taught in Berlin, and brother of Chune WOLFSTHAL from
Galicia).

However, extensive searches in all online sources known to me (in
addition to physical visit to IKG) were fruitless.

I'd highly appreciate the group's advice about how obtain genealogical
information about this musician and his family history .

Thank you - Yaron Wolfsthal, Israel. yaron.wolfsthal@gmail.com
