Obtaining civil records from Ukraine #ukraine

lcafarel@...
 

I am wondering if anyone has had any luck recently obtaining birth,
marriage, and death records >from the Khmelnitsky (Kamanets-Podolsk) archive
in Ukraine now that several years have passed since the fire. I have looked
at the website and also noticed that Americans can seek help >from the
Ukrainian Consulate in New York, but that the request must be submitted in
Ukrainian. The cost is rather steep, too, especially if you want several
records.

Any suggestions? Thanks.

Re: Prestwich/Lancashire birth/death certificates - help pls. #unitedkingdom

(CC direct, in case there are problems posting to the List)


England & Wales death certificates have tended not to be so informative as those
from Scotland and the wider world. There are some genealogy sites which have
examples of the information available on different certs at different times -
including a family tree forum of which I am a member, in its reference section.


You may be able to find out cemetery information via a local newspaper obituary.
Some local papers are becoming more accessible online: many libraries have access
to the Times Digital Archive, or to the British Library C19 Newspaper Collection.
There is a new pay-site (in partnership with the British Library) for archive
material >from British Newspapers, many of which are regional or local. It works
on OCR, but is still very new, and there are teething problems, according to some
feedback I've seen.

Dear Patricia Wilson:

The older English death certificates are not as informative as the Scottish ones.

It will list her name, age, location, and cause of death. Under profession,
it might say, "Wife of" and her husband's name. It will give the name of the
person providing the information for the death certificate (the "witness") and
might mention that person's relationship to the deceased.

It will not tell you where she was buried. You'd need to get the death certificate,
then write to the local library, tell them her exact date of death, and ask them
to check the local newspaper(s) for a death notice, in case it mentioned the
cemetery name.

The death record will not list her mother's maiden name. You'd need her birth
certificate for that. It won't list the father's name or profession, either
(unless he was the witness).

Good luck!

Looking for ASHKENAZI and TREVES-DREYFUS for DNA research #belarus

Hi everybody,

DNA research enables us to go much farther than other traditional
genealogy means.
Here is a personal example.
Our EWENCZYK/EVENCHI(C)K family originates >from Koidanov/Djerjinsk, Belarus.
Through DNA analysis, we have been able to determine that a common male
ancestor links a dozen people whose roots are in Belarus and other
Eastern Europe countries, and even as far as Rhodes Island and Aleppo,
Syria. The names ASHKENAZI and TREVES-DREYFUS are interestingly mingled
with other names. We would like to solve the challenging puzzle of the
group geographical origin.

If you are named ASHKENAZI or TREVES-DREYFUS, we would very much like
you to join the DNA research group.
Please answer me directly.

Help locating birth records from DP Camps on Cyprus #general

Yitzhak Teutsch,
E-mail: YitzhakT@jdc.org.il
Director, Jerusalem Archives of the American Jewish Joint Distribution
Committee (AJJDC) are trying to locate the birth records of the 2,200
Jewish babies born in the DP camps on Cyprus during the years 1946-1949.

In the collections of the Jerusalem Archives, we have typed lists of
some 500 births. These lists were compiled by the British military
authorities on Cyprus and sent to the AJJDC.

In the University of Southampton Library (UK), we have located a
handwritten "pinkas ha-leydot" listing 300 or so births. This
"pinkas" appears to have been written by a rabbi in the camps.

In the National Library of Israel, we have located a handwritten
"pinkas" listing 401 births. Like the Southampton "pinkas," this
appears to have been written by a rabbi in the camps.

It is our hope that someone out there possesses (or knows of) a
"pinkas" similar to those described above.

They would be deeply grateful for any assistance you can provide.

Walter SIMON, Kaufmann, Duesseldorf #general

Dick Plotz <Dick@...>
 

Walter SIMON, Kaufmann, of Geibelstr.19, Duesseldorf, was a witness at
the death of his grandmother Auguste MEYER geb. SALOMON in Aachen in
1937. Walter SIMON appears in the Duesseldorf telephone book for 1938.
He is not listed in the Yad Vashem database. He may have been a son of
Auguste MEYER's daughter Anna Rika, who was born in 1874 and who was
still alive in 1939 but about whom I have no further information.

The Duesseldorf Mahn- und Gedenkstaette has no further information
about Walter SIMON. I would be grateful for any additional information
about him or other family members. A letter sent around the time of
Auguste's death mentions "Hedi, Emmy und Kleire L." who may have been
relatives, possibly Walter's sisters.

JAWETZ/JAWITZ family living in Bukowina in the 19th century #general

Netti (Neche) JAWETZ deceased on the 15th of January 1913 in
Czernowitz at age 39 (born 1874). According to her headstone,
she was the daughter of Rabbi Yossef Peleg. I am wondering if
there is any descendant of the Jawetz family who was living
during the 19th century in Bukowina, especialy in the area of
Radauti, Siret and Czernowitz who can help with information
about Netti's family.

Thank you.
