Re: late birth registration #galicia

Suzan Wynne <srwynne@...>
 

While there were many personal reasons for late registration of a birth,
distance and inertia were likely the most common reasons.

The administrative district arrangement was designed to be roughly
accessible to everyone and they tended to be the market towns where
the market drew people in >from surrounding villages and dorfs. But,
keep in mind that part of Galicia is in the foothills of the Carpathian
mountains. Road conditions and the mountains had to have been a
barrier for some lightly motivated fathers.

In 1986, I traveled >from an ancestral village to the town where
registration would have taken place. The mountain road was paved by
then but, still, it was very narrow and steep. Terrifying, actually.
Because of how long the drive took, I imagined that the distance
between the communities was 30 miles and was shocked to learn that
it was 7. If I had to travel that road in a wagon when it was unpaved, it
might have taken the better part of a day.

I rather think that people living in rural areas must have had quite a
few challenges in getting to town. And, if the father didn't care all that
much about complying with registration rules, oh, well. Compliance
became important when it came time for the child to enroll in school,
obtain travel documents, have a civil marriage, obtain a business
license or some other official permission.

My experience with researching the records is that late registration is
relatively rare as compared to those registrations that were on time.
Changes in registration information was much more common,
particularly as civil marriage became more the norm than the
exception in the 1900-1942 period.

Request for info: Annette Schlaifer & Paris WWII #france

Gail Pratley <gpratley@...>
 

Hello - I'm a new member here and wonder if anyone can answer this question
about my aunt.

Her name is Annette Maree SCHLAIFER (born WEIFENFELD) born 1906 in either
Rumania or Paris to my grandfather Marcel WEIDENFELD and his first wife
Marguerite WEINSTEIN. Annette married Maurice SCHLAIFER possibly in the
1920s or 30s in Paris. According to my mother Maurice was a soldier and
was killed during WWII when a train was bombed - I do not know where or
when or even if this is true.

It appears Annette continued to live in Paris after Maurice's death
during WII. In 1948 or 49 my grandfather, who had remarried after
(we think) divorcing Annette's mother and emigrated to NZ in 1926
with his new family, visited Paris and returned with Annette.
She lived in Napier, NZ >from then till her death in 1983.

I knew nothing about her until my father made a comment many years ago
about Mum having a half-sister. When questioned it was one of those
forbidden subjects so we didn't go there!

The internet is a wonderful thing and over the years I have managed to find
quite a bit of info about our mysterious aunt and her life in NZ. One thing
that has puzzled me is how did she survive in Paris during the war?
What did she do? Where did she live? Has anyone any suggestions how I can
find out?

Alternatively if someone can point me in the direction of any historical
documents that give a general overview of that time period and life in
Paris that too would be helpful.

Thank you!
Gail Pratley

There was a break in Jewish observance in my family for several

father was a rabbi. I recently heard the same >from another branch of
the family. I know his name was Shammai BIRENBAUM, and he lived in
Belz (in Moldavia, not the one in Russia Poland).I know that he was a

Looking for the death record of Karl BARDACH, early-mid-1930s #germany

Dick Plotz <Dick@...>
 

My wife's great-grandfather Karl BARDACH, born in Vienna 1857/59,
lived in Duesseldorf and vacationed in the south of France. In the
summer, some time between 1932-35, he died either in Duesseldorf or in
France; my late mother-in-law was not sure which, or which year. What
would be my best route for finding his date of death?

Looking for information about Old Neolog Cemetery, Arad, Romania #romania

Jake Jacobs
 

I just found a record on Jewishgen reflecting that a g'g'uncle was buried in the Old Neolog Cemetery
in Arad in 1910. His name was Mor Steinberger. This is the identifying information: dod 03-Feb-1910 ;
Section: Dreapta (Grour ID 29); Row 36; Grave 26; Book ID 2 Book Page 374 .

My question: Are there photographs or other records of this cemetery?

Thank you very much.

Jewish Calendar needed #general

jeremy frankel
 

Dear Genners

For many years I have used Frank Yellin’s Jewish Calendar on my computer. It served
my needs perfectly for my genealogical research. Now I’ve upgraded to a newer
laptop (MacBook Pro running 10.12.5 Sierra) and Frank’s calendar has had to be
relegated to the trash. I need a new one that can be downloaded into my laptop,
“not” a cloud-based app. I want a month to a view displayingl the Hebrew dates,
festivals as well as the secular Gregorian dates. I want to be able to insert a
year (any year — Frank’s range was 1–2999) then pick the month and see everything
in that month.

Is there one out there that can fulfill all these requirements?

Thanks in advance — and Happy 4th.

Rony Golan
 

Dear friends,

I seek help in finding information about the following family:
Victor COHEN a/k/a Hy Victor COHEN died in Brooklyn on the 22 of October 1960.
He was married to Dorothy (maiden name unknown).
He is buried in the Montefiore cemetery (I have the stone).
At the time of the death he was living on 22 Siegel St., Brooklyn.
I am looking for his wife.

On the 1940 census I can't find them at the known address >from 1960. I
also could not trck their marriage indices recently released.

I am seeking advise on how to find their marriage record and finally tracing
Dorothy.

Many thanks,
