Chicago death/marriage records 1895-1913 #general

Hello,

I was hoping to hear >from you guys about the state of researching death
and marriage records in Chicago in the period between 1895 and 1913. Can
they be looked up in person? Is there mail service?

It seems to me that available records >from the Illinois State Archives
start at 1916. I hope I am mistaken.

Thank you in advance.

Shabbat Shalom.

UK did not create logs of immigrants >from *the Continent* in those days.

My understanding is that Jewish parents don't name sons after their
fathers. In fact, I've heard that Jewish parents don't name sons
after any living relative.

Is this true? Has this been a constant tradition throughout the
centuries? Does this apply to fathers, or just living fathers, or to
all living male relatives?

What if there's a really big family and they're running out of names?
Dan Goodman addressed the basics appropriately. Let me address the
question about large family and running out of names.

You don't run out of names because the cultural prohibition is not against
using a living person's name, it is against naming after a living person.
You name after a dead person. A subtle but important difference.

If your grandfather Mendel is dead and your uncle has named his son Mendel
after Grandpa, it is still alright to name your son Mendel after grandpa.
The people who need to know know or are told that you are naming after
dead grandpa, not after living cousin, and everything is fine.

In fact, it was very common for such things to be done.

My great grandmother, Esther, died in the early 1900's, not long after
immigrating with her large family to the US. Within a few years of her
death, every one of her children had a daughter named Esther. There was
Brahna's Ester, and Mendel's Esther, and Feige's Esther, etc.

All quite acceptable in the Askenazic tradition.

The Sephardim (descendants of Jews expelled >from Spain and Portugal in the
late 16 th century) and the Mizrahim (Jews descended of families who stayed
in the middle east) do not have this tradition and do name son after living
father.

Slutsker message #belarus

Margot Tutun <gramto@...>
 

Dear Slutskers and vicinity people:

Harry Boonin sent out to some members of the Slutsk Historical Society a
compelling photo of the beginning of excavation of the mass grave in Slutsk
for victims of the Holocaust.

Dave Fox had previously called our attention to this news story, widely
broadcast on the Internet. Interestingly, I had not seen other mention of
this in either the New York Times or the Boston Globe--but perhaps I missed
it.

Please correspond with me privately if you want a copy of the photo. I am
not sure that I can send it along through the Belarus SIG.

Re: Holocaust survivors in Bobruisk #belarus

JReese4981@...
 

Does anyone know how many Jews survived the holcaust in Bobruisk? And what
happened to them, if they did survive? I have to believe that some of
grandfather's family survived, there were many brothers and at least one
sister, and probably many children, but my grandfather lost touch with them
during the war, and then he died of a stroke in 1941. And I never thought to
ask my grandmother before she died in 1968 -- my interest in my roots came
later. My father and his brothers never seem to have asked either, I asked
them all before they died, but no one knew anything, and now there is no one
to ask. If any of the family survived, and have children still there, I
would of course love to make contact with them.

Dear Belarus Genners,

Two more new articles have been posted on the Belarus Newsletter web site.

http://www.jewishgen.org/Belarus/newsletter/konstantin_shapiro.htm
This is another in the series on famous Jews of Belarus by Vitaly Charny,
beautifully illustrated as always with commemorative postage stamps, and
post card views.

http://www.jewishgen.org/Belarus/newsletter/jewish_farmers.htm
This is a reprint of an article by Leonid Smilovitsky originally published
in the Jewish Political Studies Review dealing with the short-lived
agricultural communities of the 1920s.

We thank the authors and are sure you will find these articles interesting
and informative.
