Please write me privately about this. I have availability to look at the NJ State Library for death certificates (which are not on  line sometimes Have you checked Reclaim the Records.  I know they have alot of information that one used to have to go look at hard copies.  You may have to get a Florida death certificate but i do not know if they will just send to immediate relatives.  Let me know if you have tried all this


Looking for Relatives of Jacob Rubin from Newark NJ

Niftee
 

HI 
I am working on a research project to find any living relatives of Jacob Rubin.  Jacob was in the real estate business in Newark, NJ.  His wife's name is Fannie Runistky/Bunitisky.  I have all pertinent census records 1910-1940. I know they had a son Abe born on July 3 1895 in New Jersey and he married his wife Bella/Belle Illion/Illionitsky in NYC in Feb 1918. They had one child Carol Rubin born in New Jersey in 1924. I cannot locate anything past the 1940 census on her.  Jacob also had a daughter Ida Rubin who was born on June 3 1893. I found both Abe and Ida's birth information on Familysearch.org.  I have the SSN death index for one Ida Rubin Koplowitz.who is the same Ida based on her birth information.  She died in 1981 in Florida. She did reside in West Orange NJ.  We are looking to see if she had any children

If anyone has any ideas or knows of the family please let me know  

Thanks.

Re: Date of Birth input into databases

You can try to do just that but also remember that sometimes births may not have been registered with authorities until several years later.

Subject: [JewishGen.org] Date of Birth input into databases #advice

I am new to this group and apologise if this has already been discussed.
My grandfather left Lithuania in the 1890's and changed his name when he got to England,and would never reveal his original name.
We have ,however,a date of birth for him.My question is-"Is there any way of accessing the Jewish Gen databases or any other database using the DOB as
the input?".Since there cannot be a great number of births amongst the Jewish community at the time on any particular date, we may possibly be able to
recognise and follow up details from other things we knew about him.Any help and suggestions would be much appreciated.

I am not sure that my earlier email went through to you. I have two suggestions:
1, your relatives may not have changed their names until they arrived here. So there may be some records under their original name.
2 A great resource is the jewish genealogy society of great britain.

Others may have more precise help for you, but I can suggest a great resource: The Jewish Genealogy Society Of Great Britain has tons of materials on immigrants from Eastern Europe. https://jgsgb.org.uk/

Re: Need Help Locating Marriage Certificate in Maryland

I think you might mean Elkton, Maryland. It is in Cecil County and they might have the records or they might be in the state archives. This is the link for the  Maryland State Archives:
https://msa.maryland.gov/

This is the link from a search for marriage records for county governments in the state of Maryland:


This Is the information for the License and Marriage department of the Cecil County judicial branch of the county government:

Thanks for Polish translation help #warsaw #poland

N. Summers
 

Many thanks to Jonathan Michael Wien and Mike Vayser for their translations of the back of a photo of a 1927 nursing school class. Using the information they gave me, I have been able to find the name of the Warsaw nursing school and its website in Poland. The website says that there are no original documents remaining from the school. But since I now know that I have a photograph of the 1927 nursing school class, I can send it to them

Could not have done it without ViewMate!

Hi all,

This is an excellent idea and I was going to ask same question ages ago, but was expected that the answer will be that to add or change anything will require new software & it will be very costly. 

Thank you.


IGRA’s Immigration Databases for Aliyah Day

Elena Bazes
 

In honor of Aliyah Day, November 5, 2019, the Israel Genealogy Research Association (IGRA) is proud to present “The Immigration Collection”.

Since 2011 IGRA has been building databases of which 14% deal with immigration to Eretz Israel. This includes 211,548 listings which contain information indicating when a person immigrated to Palestine/Eretz Israel/Israel. It spans the period from before World War One to after the founding of the State of Israel.

The documents that the files were compiled from were obtained from various archives, both inside and outside of Israel.

A preview of the databases can be seen at:

who are or where is Bialostoker #poland

David Syner
 

I found an article about my Grandfather, Lester Syner, in Detroit Jewish News archives.
"Bialostoker Juniors announce 

that important announcements of forthcoming activities will be made next week. There are 300 members in this organization. Membership is still open to young men who desire a wide variety of interests. among them. athletics, forensics, anti-defamation, literary work, social and youth promotion groups. 

An important event is planned for April 3.1938

i'm bring looking for clues on my Syner family for YEEEEARS. They arrived in NYC 1881. Rabbie Eleazar Ziner (later Louis Sinner) and his wife Elka Ziner (katz) Most of those record are gone to a Fire.  Elka died in 1885. Her 2 children were born in NYC. 

If my Grandfather was President of Bialostoker. Maybe it would help me identify which county/city they lived in before coming to the US.


Re: New site/app for searching graves in Israel #israel

Odeda Zlotnick
 

First: many many thanks to David - I have just found a gravestone (and date of death) that I have been looking for for a long time!

Second: the site does have an Englisih interface -- upper left hand corner of the Hebrew, site, or the following link: https://gravez.me/en/.  However the site doesn't translated or transcribe names, so, you have to know the Hebrew spelling of the name you're searching for.
Once you've got the name - you get all the information (except for the name) in English.

And the spelling has to be exact - the search engine does not work like a google search.
So, when you ask for help in transcribing, make sure to ask for alternative spellings.

And if it's common name - the more details you have, the better.

Is this the Harold Michael GOLDBERG who had 2 daughters Joan & Maddlyn Dee?
If so, he and Clara and daughters appear in a 1930 Federal Census living in 521 West 111th Street, NY, New York.
He was born 1877 in NY.


Seeking descendants of Lodz industrialist Markus SILBERSTEIN (1833-1899)

Alan Glixman
 

Dear group
 
I am trying to identify and then get in touch with the descendants of the well known Lodz industrialist Markus SILBERSTEIN (1833-1899).  Would anyone in the group be able to please recommend any resources or approaches? 
 
I have contacted a JewishGen researcher via the Family Tree of Jewish People (FTJP) and done some internet searching but have not been able to identify any contemporary pathway to connect with anyone – I’ve only been able to find historical information.
 
The parents of Markus were Joachim SILBERSTEIN/ZYLBERSZTEJN and Adela GLIKSMAN.  Their siblings also married - Ruchla ZYLBERSZTEJN (the sister of Joachim) married Dawid GLIKSMAN (the brother of Adela).  I am a descendant of that other marriage and so the four grandparents of Markus SILBERSTEIN are also my direct ancestors.
 
As Markus SILBERSTEIN and his wife Teresa COHN were a wealthy well-known family, and as there seems to be information and photos of them and their children which are find-able on the internet, I am (optimistically) hoping that there are some descendants living who may be in possession of family archives in which there may be some photos of the parents or even grandparents of Markus and maybe even some other family photos that include his aunt (my gggm) Ruchla.
 
Any suggestions will be much appreciated.
 
Kind regards

Re: Reviews of visits to Hungarian and Transylvanian Cemeteries #hungary

that's great, but is there any way to update the information on jewishgen? there is jowbr, and, i think, some older infofiles as well. if i were looking to visit these cemeteries, i'd be more likely to search the website than to look through the h-sig discussion group for updates.
