Help - Crack a puzzle about Ptaszek family research #poland

דוד נ.א.
 

Summary:
1. Could it be that "Beyla" in one record is "Dwora" in another?
2. Is "Myszka" likely to be "Hisza"?

Baruch Hashem, I managed to reach my family research a few generations
back to the early nineteenth century, to a grandfather named Asher
Ptaszek, >from the town of Miedzyrzec. Except here, I was stopped by a
fascinating challenge.

"Grandpa Asher" had a brother, named Nachman. On the other hand, I
found in the town a man named Nachman Ptaszek. If Nachman is the
brother of "Asher" - then it fascinating. Because the documents tell
about Nahman's parents and even his grandparents (until 1760!), And
also about his many descendants, of whom I also found people living
with us today.

But, how disappointing: I can't find conclusive proof of Nachman's
identification as Asher's brother. On the one hand, all signs indicate
that they are siblings, but on the other hand - there is some data
that contradicts that. And the "conclusive " proof - I don't, because
I don't have enough data on Asher's family.

I won't give you all the data and image analysis here, because it will
be long, I'll just share with you the basics, and the problems that
mark me.

The documents clearly state that Asher's wife called "Dwora" and that
he had a brother called Asher. And also Nachman's documents say he had
a brother named Asher. In terms of age - they are similar, both about
1808. Other signs indicate a match.

So why not? Mainly because of the following reason:
I found the death record of a person named Asher Ptaszek. It can be a
good match for my grandfather, especially in light of the fact that he
died young (24), like my grandfather. But, my grandfather's wife was
called "Dwora", and the widow of this "Asher" was called "Beyla".

The names are quite different, it seems that the clerk was wrong. She
may have been called two names "Dwora Beyla" but that is also
unlikely. Deborah appears in her name so her only name in three
certificates over different periods (birth, marriage, and death of her
daughter), strange that in one certificate only Beyla appears as a
single name.

And assuming this Asher is not "My Grandfather Asher" is a problem.
Because the names of his parents are very similar to the names of
Nachman's parents, and very likely they are brothers, and if so he is
Nachman's brother and not "mine".

The parents of this Asher (>from the death certificate) called Samuel
and "Myszka," while Nachman's parents called Samuel and "Hisza." It's
probably the same people. Especially as far as I know - there is no
such woman's name "Myszka", very likely it is the clerk's mistake in
identifying the sound. How about that?

Thank you for your help

KRELL and RECHDINER ancestors from Warsaw

Daniel Hanoch Wagner
 

Anyone out there searching for the KRELL and/or RECHDINER families of Warsaw? There are quite a few of these in JRI-Poland but, specifically, my greatgrandparents were Hanoch KRELL and Sura Ruchla RECHDINER (both born about 1870), who do not appear there (there is one Sura Ruchla Rechdiner but born 20 years earlier). I am missing either a Birth record for both, or their marriage record (about 1890). 

Thank you for any help.

Re: New records online: the New York City *Geographic* Birth Index, late 19th and early 20th century,

A. E. Jordan

So if you already know the address of a New York City family from
another source, such as a census record (US Federal Census, New York
State Census, or the 1890 New York City "Police Census") or a city
directory or a vital record, go check that same address through the
years to see if any other kids with a similar surname were born at
that address, too. You might find some previously-unknown births where
the names might have been misspelled or mistranscribed in the
"regular" New York City birth index

Congratulations to Reclaim for pulling this record out of the file cabinets at he Archives and making it more available to people.

One important thing to under about this record is it was built from the same set of birth certificates as the other indices.  If someone does not have a birth certificate elsewhere it not going to be here as well.  What this solves, as Brooke says, is if the spelling is so completely different or the transcription so poor (or missed) into the other indices.

The NYC Municipal Archives staff has told me that they estimate a quarter of all births went unrecorded in NYC circa 1900.  Remember births were at home usually with a midwife and it was up to the midwife to report it.

Also I do not believe that they went back to add in the D or S birth certificates to this index.  It was and still is possible to report a birth after the fact and with the right documentation have a D or S issued with the original date.  You find them being created when the children were going to school and I guess the school asked for some ID about the child and so the parents went to the trouble of reporting the birth or I have seen cases were an adult needed their birth and could not find it so they filed for the D which is a Delayed Report or the S which is a Special Report.  Both of these show up in some of the online indices but if is very important to note the D or S with the number because they are stored separately.  Some of them are on the mircofilm at the Archives and others they have the original paper copies and the rest are still at the Health Department locked away like all the births after 1909.

Another thing to remember about the geographic index is that especially on the Lower East Side people moved around a lot.  If the address you have is months or even years old it is very likely the people have moved.  It is well worth trying but don't be surprised not to find them in the same address.  The nice thing is that since not a lot of children were reported born at any one address in one year once you find the listing it is fairly short versus page after page of names.

Happy hunting and again thanks to Reclaim for making these records available to more people.
