New map for Stare Miasto & the hamlet of Przychojec (Gmina Lezajsk) on Gesher Galicia's Cadastral Map Room #general

Stare Miasto Cadastral Map 1890

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/stare-miasto-1890/

A selectively-colored cadastral map of the village of Stare Miasto (of
the Gmina Lezajsk), with the hamlet of Przychojec, surveyed in 1890 in
Galicia, today in Poland.

This excerpt includes all of the southern and central lands, and all
residential areas. This later map uses Polish language throughout,
acknowledging the greater autonomy of Galicia within the Empire. A
working intermediate-stage map, this print uses an earlier lithograph
as base for field updates, and each sheet was quartered and
board-backed for folding so it could be easily carried and deployed in
the field with in-situ revisions. This small village has no visible
center, but the map clearly shows developing residential centers in
several locations, plus a church and a few large estates. Images for
this map were provided to Gesher Galicia by the Archiwum Panstwowe w
Rzeszowie in Poland.

NYC (Bronx) Court Records - Divorce Complaint - further research #galicia

Pamela Weisberger
 

Richard Stower writes about an interesting divorce and desertion case
in NYC (family originally >from Galicia):

"My grandmother, Rose KANNER (b. Dabrowa Tarnowska) married Jacob
(Jack) GROSS (b. Chortkov) in NYC. Soon after my mother was born my
grandfather abandoned the family. In the early 1950s it was found that my
grandfather had married Katie ROSENBERG in the late 1940s without having
divorced my grandmother. The family memory is that my grandfather was
arrested for bigamy and spent time in Rikers Island. In 1953 my grandmother
sued for divorce, which was granted. I have the Final Judgement in the case
but I would like to get access to the original complaint. Does anyone have a
suggestion as to how to get the complaint?

Also, any ideas to get access to the court and/or prison records regarding
the bigamy charge against my grandfather?

Finally, in the divorce decree there is a provision that "it shall not be lawful
for the defendant [my grandfather] to marry any person other than the
plaintiff [my grandmother] during the lifetime of the plaintiff, except by
express permission of the Court." Is this common in a divorce?"

And...

"Following a suggestion, I emailed Mark Nusebaum, Records Manager of the
Office of the Bronx County Clerk with my request for the divorce complaint
regarding my grandparents. Fortunately I had in my possession the final
judgement of the divorce which nullified the restriction of records of a
divorce within a hundred years. Had not Mr. Nusebaum taken yesterday off,
I would have had the complaint emailed to me within 24 hours of my
request rather than the 45 hours it took! Amazing."

Congratulations on getting a copy of the court records. Divorce cases can
be among the most fascinating and insightful documents for genealogists
because of what is discussed within the case records.

Two more thoughts on continued research since your grandfather deserted
the family. You might want to check out the records of the "National
Desertion Bureau" (NDB) at the Yivo Institute:

http://www.yivoarchives.org/index.php?p=collections/controlcard&id=32686

This agency was organized in 1905 and gave assistance to Jewish immigrant
women who had been deserted by their husbands. The name was later
changed to Family Location Service. They have about 20,000 case files with
index cards arranged alphabetically. It was through this service that
husbands who left their families and traveled to other states, marrying other
women and having other children, were eventually tracked down. Without
their services most of these men would not be found.

I think the records are kept off-site, and you may have to prove your
relationship to the person in question, but contacting Yivo should offer more
information. Yivo's home page: http://yivo.org

As for "absolute divorce" which meant the party to blame in the divorce
(adultery, desertion, etc.) was not allowed to marry during the lifetime of the
wronged party. This rather archaic law was in force until the 1960s I believe.
Remember all those Reno, Nevada and Mexican divorces people used to get?
That's why. Couples who mutually wanted to get divorced either went out of
state or used setups where the husband agreed to be photographed with a
woman to justify the adultery claim, even when it didn't exist. (I have at least
one first-hand account of this happening in the 1940s. I'm sure there were
lawyers who arranged these "staged" events so couples in agreement could
move on quickly with their lives.) More on NYC divorces here:

http://www.brandeslaw.com/grounds_for_divorce/history.htm

To bring more human interest to your story, try searching in historical
newspapers for stories about your grandfather. You never know what might
pop up.

Also, the Jewish Daily Forward (in cooperation with the NDB) carried a regular
item called "The Gallery of the Missing Husband" (with photos!) to assist the
great number of abandoned wives writing to the paper. This column began in
1911. Because The Forward is in Yiddish, the research is more challenging,
but if you know the date of an event (perhaps memorialized in the divorce
papers) you might have success.

I found a relative married in NYC 1892 who accused his wife of adultery and
was divorced, then remarried a widow, then divorce #1 was overturned by a
NY judge the following year (making him a bigamist by default) followed by
an altercation with wife #2 in Chicago over money, followed by another
divorce on the grounds of cruelty in Denver, before returning to wife #1 and
moving to Little Rock. Without the newspaper article I never would have
known about the Chicago altercation and the Denver divorce.

Sabina HIRSCH LEDERER of Tarnow, Poland #general

Debbie Wetlaufer
 

I am trying to learn more about Sabina HIRSCH (or HIRSZ) and her first husband
Mr. LEDERER who was (likely) the father of her son Louis. I am assuming they
lived in Tarnow since her son Louis was born there.

According to the documents I've found thus far, Sabina HIRSCH (or HIRSZ) was
born between about 1872-1875 in Galicia or Austria. She arrived in the US
between about 1900-1903.

The license for her second marriage provides her maiden name, HIRSCH, naming
her as the daughter of Marcus HIRSCH & Roza BENDER (note that an 1888 civil
marriage record >from Tarnow for her parents names them as Markus HIRSZ and
Raca BENDER).

The marriage record also provides her first married name: Sabina LEDERER. They
were married sometime prior to 1905, according to the license for her second
marriage which named her as "widow" Sabina LEDERER. She had a son, Louis, who
was born 19 Mar 1894 in Tarnow, Poland.

Sabina emigrated to the US between about 1900-1905.

In 1905, the widow Sabina LEDERER married for a second time to Saul FRIEDNER at
Crlstonopoler Consr???? Brlth Isaac, 90-92 Columbia St, Manhattan, New York, USA.

Sabina's son, Louis, was born 19 Mar 1894 in Tarnow, Poland. In the 1910 US
Federal Census he was enumerated as Louis HIRSCH, step-son of Saul FRIEDNER.
Louis' last name, HIRSCH, is Sabina's maiden name and I've learned that children
often assumed their mother's surname if the parents were only married by a rabbi
and did not have a civil marriage. Louis later assumed the surname FRIEDNER. His
headstone names him as Louis FRIEDNER which provides his Hebrew name: "Eliezer
son of Aryeh."
See <http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=FRIEDNER&GSfn=Louis&GSbyrel=all&GSdyrel=all&GSob=n&GRid=118184101&df=all&>
[MOD. NOTE: shortened URL - http://goo.gl/01Lf7i ]

**Next steps?**
I have thus far not had luck in finding documents for Sabina's first marriage to
Mr. LEDERER. I do not know if he also emigrated to the US or if he passed away
prior to Sabina's emigration to the US.

I appreciate any tips!

Grateful Thanks #germany

The response to my conundrum regarding the Jacob MARX and Babette AACH was
in most part, wonderful.

I have now fixed the problems and connected all parties.

In addition, I was able to show a distant cousin in Michigan,
her ancestors going back to the early 1700s.

In addition, I was able to show a distant cousin in Michigan,
her ancestors going back to the early 1700s.

Viewmate translation - Polish #germany

Rosemary Pattenden <rosepattenden@...>
 

I am trying to piece together the complex relationships between members
of the Byk family of Brody/Leipzig/Berlin and to this end have been
studying (mostly legal) notices in the Lwow Gazette. Most are in German,
but a recent one is in Polish, a language which I cannot read. I have
posted it on Viewmate ( VM 41573) and would be grateful for a
translation into English.
