Re: Viewmate--Surname adoption under Napoleon: seen any lists like this? #general

Nardo Bonomi
 

In the past years I found registers of surname adoption under Napoleon rule in
some towns of Italy ruled by the French:
- Alessandria,
- Asti,
- Firenze,
- Pisa,
- Livorno,

These records are of the years 1808-1809 and are mostly without a printed
scheme. You can see an example of the Italian declaration of adoption of surname
here:

A very good idea! And if you plan to come next year to Paris Conference,
visiting the French Embassy on Tuesday August 16, could be an excellent
opportunity to prepare for it.

Only in Washington: Attend the Conference AND Visit Foreign Embassies! #usa

31st IAJGS Conference <dc2011_conference@...>
 

We now have another “Capital Experience” to provide you when attending the
31st IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy. It’s a never-before
opportunity to take in one of the many unique characteristics in our nation’s
capital, Washington, DC-- the foreign embassies based here.

We’ve therefore arranged with several embassies to open their doors to
Conference registrants for a unique “Embassy Experience.” Those attending
will not hear a genealogy presentation, but rather meet with representatives
from foreign countries. They’ll hear first-hand >from ranking officials,
which could range >from an attaché to the ambassador. These representatives
first will provide background information about those areas, and then allow
time for questions. Attendees will be able to ask about life in these
countries >from a variety of perspectives, including current foreign and
domestic policies, or recent economic, political and social developments.
(So come prepared to ask good questions for a polite and civil discourse.}

Five embassies have invited participants to their facility; these are:

EMBASSY OF ISRAEL: Monday, August 15
EMBASSY OF FRANCE: Tuesday, August 16
EMBASSY OF POLAND: Tuesday, August 16
EMBASSY OF GREECE: Wednesday, August 17
EMBASSY OF UKRAINE: Wednesday, August 17

A sixth embassy, the EMBASSY OF GERMANY, also has agreed to participate by
having a representative deliver a presentation at the Conference on
Wednesday, August 17. (Due to their facility being renovated, they can’t
invite visitors inside it.)

Those interested in participating in the Embassy Experience program
(including spouses or companions) need to register in advance to visit any
of the five embassy facilities listed above. (Attending the Embassy of
Germany presentation is included with Conference attendance.)

To register to attend the embassy facilities, either: (1) update your
Conference registration form if you’ve already registered, or (2) if about
to register for the Conference, do so and also complete the embassy
attendance section of the form. Advance registration will allow us to
arrange transportation to and >from the embassy (or embassies) that you’d
like to visit. Please see the Conference program for travel times needed to
and >from each embassy.

A nominal fee of $15 per person/embassy will be changed for transportation.
Registration will close on July 1, so that we can arrange transportation and
provide attendee lists in advance to the embassies. All attendees are
required to bring a government-issued ID, such as a driver’s license or
passport.

Remember, time is passing to register for this year’s feature-filled IAJGS
International Conference on Jewish Genealogy! Conference registration rates
are very flexible and include: full week or single day registration, as well
as discount rates for spouses/companions, college and high school students.
Conference hotel lodging also is available through the Conference website.
For further information, please contact info@.... The Conference
website is www.dc2011.org.

Many with early American roots, also can trace back to family origins in

French Embassy on Tuesday afternoon, August 16, >from 2:30-5 pm, could be
an excellent opportunity to prepare for it.

New York Naturalisation of Thomas H. AARON #belarus

Dear Jgenners,

Trying to find Naturalisation record/info for my G-Uncle,
Thomas Harry AARON who emigrated >from Minsk to US through Ellis Island
in 1906 (as Chone ARONZIK) age 24.I have his ship manifest.
I also have the 1910 Census which shows him, now Thomas Harry AARON,
living with wife Friede and children, at 505 Howard Avenue, Brooklyn (Ward
24, Kings).I believe he went to California for a while.The family went
to Canada in the early 1920s and I have found his grandchildren.Now
I believe I have found on the Internet a record showing the Naturalisation
in Erie County, N.Y. c.1920 of a Thomas H. AARON but do not have access
to further information on the record.Any further information would
be very much appreciated if anyone has access.

With many thanks.

GRUNEBAUM Family from Heidelberg and What Records are Available from There? #germany

Linda Shefler
 

We just recently learned that a member of our GRUNEBAUM family from
Heidelberg was deported to Gurs on 22 Oct 1940 and then to Auschwitz on
10, Oct 1942. Her name was Selma GRUNEBAUM (nee ABRAHAM); she was born
24 Mar., 1903 in Okriftel. We have no idea to whom she was married, but
we know that she was the mother of Hans John GRUNEBAUM, who was probably
born in the mid to late 1920s. There is a chance that he survived the war,
but we have no concrete information.

The only member of the GRUNEBAUM family that we know of that might have
lived in Heidelberg was MordchE4us (Max) Gruenebaum, who was born in
1865. We were told he died in Heidelberg, date unknown. We suspect that
he was probably the father of Selma's husband.

My first question is, is anyone aware of, or familiar with this family?
My second question is, what records are available for Heidelberg
(possibly >from the late 19th century and into the 20th century) that
will help us piece together this GRUNEBAUM family?

I have checked Yad Vashem, the Bundesarchiv and the Aufbau records.

As always, many thanks for your time!
