I seem to recall a mention of them. I rode up to Yad Vashem with a
seat mate whose maiden name was TEMPLEMANN. Please get in touch
privately if you are interested in particulars.

The death certificate generally includes the cemetary information and
may include the funeral home. I have some which also list the burial
society. Newer ones list the informant as well. I have several from
NYC and one >from CA. The older ones (circa 1910's and 20's) do not
list the informant, the more recent (1970's and 80's) do. They also
list mother and father, birthdates, last residence, etc., but remember
that is as reported by the informant and may be inaccurate. Marriage
license applications may give you more accurate information about
antecedents, since the info is given by the principals. Naturalization
applications can also be helpful in determining antecedents, spouses
and children. Steve Morse is working on a search tool for these as
well as burials in NYC. I don't recall offhand the exact dates he has
put in the tool so far, but the website gives this information in the
FAQs. I hope this helps. It's gratifying to know I've been useful.

Blackpool Council - SHAFFER #unitedkingdom

Julie Shapero-Rogerson <julibill@...>
 

Researching SHAAFFER

I am looking for as much information as I can about a family "Shaffer", who
I believe came >from Blackpool. Timespan around, very late 1800's to about
1950's or so.

This encompases about 3 generations I think

There was a Jack Shaffer, and I think his wife name was Rika (maiden name
Feldman.)

Other names of family members I beleive should be Anthony, Peter, Brian,
Ben, Fanny, Hyman, Marks, Jane, Morris, Louis. Not to sure of where they all
fit in at this stage. What I do have may not be correct

One of the males I have been told was the Mayor of Blackpool (I would like
to be able to find out if I could also get an email address to contact the
Blackpool Council to find out).

I have been led to believe that Jack SHAFFER was in Real Estate, and his
father in some other bussiness, but am told that whatever it was, he did
fairly well.

Thank you for your assistance

I have done extensive research about the Kramer family >from tuckums. All of
this information is available on the family tree of the Jewish people on

Below is information pertinent to the Talsen search

Here is an excerpt >from a diary of someone's 1999 trip to Talsen:

What we found in the register office was very interesting though somewhat
disappointing. The registrar told us that Talsi was "full of Thalbergs" -
though she seems to have meant dead ones as there are no more - but she did
not recognise the name Sebba or Zebba. She said that in 1993 at the time of
"denationalisation" many people had come to Talsi to claim property and she
had made a list of Jewish family names - but she didn't know where she had
put it. She thought she might find it again. What she did have was the record
of Jewish births, deaths and marriages >from one parish - Valdemarpils - >from
1890 - 1921, all bound together in one book. The pages were filled in in
Russian on one side (with some witnesses' signatures in German) and Hebrew on
the other. She said she did not have the corresponding records >from any
other parts of Talsi district because they were in Hebrew only and there was
no one who could read them - don't know if this meant they were simply lying
in a box of "unclassified" documents or whether they had been archived
somewhere else.
Further notes say:
Here's the name and address of the Talsi registrar:
Ieva Ratniece
Brivibas Iela 9.-12
Talsi LV-3201
Latvia

Tel. 1-32 24323

I think 32 is the code for
Talsi and 24323 is the local number. That could be her home number - she
wrote it by hand on a printed piece of paper


Sincerely,
Louise Hayden-Hajdenberg

<< Subject: korn/wiener/knobloch >>

In Galicia, if there was only a religious ceremony and not a civil one, a
child born was considered illegitimate (nieslubne) and given the name of the
mother. Sometimes the father would come to the registrar and state that this
was his child, and then the father's name was noted, but the child was still
given the mother's surname.

Sometimes the father reported the birth and his surname was used, then some
clerk got wind of the fact that this wasn't right and went back and
"corrected" the record (recte) and put in the mother's surname everywhere.

On the other hand, sometimes the parents had a civil ceremony long after the
children were born, and then the clerk went back and changed all the surnames
to the father's and wrote "recte," but in that case, they usually noted the
date of the marriage of the parents.

It is sometimes hard to sort out what is what. It is possible that the maiden
name of the mother was Korn, the children were born Korn, the parents were
later married in a civil ceremony and the kids all changed to the father's
name of Wiener. It is possible that the mother, whose maiden name was Korn,
had the same problem, and her father was really Knobloch but her mother's
maiden name was Korn.

You will need to put all the certificates in a line and try to figure out
what is what.
