Re: Date of Birth input into databases

Marion Werle
 

Currently, JewishGen (or LitvakSIG) databases are not searchable by birth year, let alone birthdate, nor are birth records complete, or even available, for every Litvak town. You should also be aware that any birthdates supplied by immigrants in the locale where they settled are not necessary accurate. All immigrants ultimately took an official birthdate, which may or may not reflect when they were actually born. In many cases, they may not even have known - maybe an approximate date and proximity to a holiday (Pesach, Purim, Shavuot). Unless you can actually find a birth record, you will be lucky to figure out the year of birth (perhaps from a revision list or marriage record, although there was also incentive to lie on revision lists, especially for males of draft age).

Re: Need Help Locating Marriage Certificate in Maryland

Lewis, Megan
 

Dear Ellen,

Do you mean Elkton, MD in Cecil County?  

In Maryland, marriage records are held by the clerk for the county's circuit court.  Information for Cecil County is at https://mdcourts.gov/clerks/cecil/marriage

Elkton was known as an East Coast "Graetna Green" for eloping couples because it has been well connected by roads since Colonial times, is the Cecil County seat and is where MD, PA and DE meet, making it also convenient to NJ.


Regards,

Megan, native Marylander

Re: Date of Birth input into databases

Russ Maurer
 

Yes, this is easy to do using either the LitvakSIG "All Lithuania Database" (https://www.litvaksig.org/search-ald) or the JewishGen Lithuania Database (https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Lithuania/), which searches the ALD and other records. Dates of birth in ALD birth records are formatted as DD/MM/YYYY; single-digit months and days are generally recorded without leading zeros. Dates of birth sometimes are found in other kinds of records such as census, marriage, or death records and there may be differences in the format, such as the use of hyphens instead of slashes, the presence of leading zeros, or the use of alpha months in place of numerical. It is important to recognize that "/" and "-" are not permissible in the search input and must be replaced by spaces.

Thus, for example, to search for a birthday of March 9, 1875, input "any field" "contains" "9 3 1875" and, to make sure you haven't missed anything, also try the following variations:
09 3 1875
09 03 1875
9 03 1875
9 mar 1875
09 mar 1875

The ALD contains over 244,000 birth records. Good luck!

Division of Volhynia between the wars #ukraine

Dear Researchers

When I posted my question about the inter-war boundaries of Volhynia, I
received many emails asking me for further information if I found it. I received an excellent email with an
explanation and map, that I think goes a long way to
explaining the boundaries. The site referenced in the email is:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volhynia. I hope
this link helps clarify some of the complexities of this geographical

Re: Need Help Locating Marriage Certificate in Maryland

Madeleine Sann
 

Sad to say, but I have gotten numerous New York City marriage certificates and the lengthier affidavits from the early 20th century and have yet to see a town of birth, only a country, often wrong, from personal knowledge. The same gap with naturalization papers, social security applications (a bit later), and many death certificates. I hope you find your documents but they may be unhelpful in terms of birthplace. If anyone has suggestions for documents that are more likely to show place of birth, I’d love to know what they are.

Alex,

 

Can't help you with Silberstein, but I do have Poznanski from Lodz. My aunt was a Poznanski from there

Subject: [JewishGen.org] Seeking descendants of Lodz industrialist Markus SILBERSTEIN (1833-1899) #advice

 

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
