I recently discovered that my gggrandmother's maiden name was TYM.
I've never heard of this name, ever, on anyone. I have, however met
people with the name DYM. Does anyone out there have any information
on these two names and if they are variants of each other?
TIA

In both Polish and Russian, "Dym" means "smoke". In Russian, "T'ma" means
"dark", so that the name might be equivalent to German "Schwarz", but
phonetically that's a stretch.

National Archives Naturalization Petitions #general

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

Greetings All,

I was at the National Archives-Northeast Division (NYC) today and discovered
that all the Southern District of New York naturalization petitions filed
between the years 1897 and 1944 are now on microfilm (M1972). These
incorporate Volume No. 64, Page 1 to Petition No. 436400. They are currently
microfilming all the records for the Eastern District of New York. This
means that they will no longer be retrieving those big books stored in the
back room with the original naturalization records, at least for the ones I
just mentioned that have already been microfilmed. One can now locate, e.g.
a person's Petition for Naturalization number on www.italiangen.org, , go to
NARA (perhaps at conference time), and make your own copies (thirty cents
per page, avg. three pages per person) and obtain, when available, the
applicant's Declaration of Intention, Certificate of Approval, and Petition
for Naturalization in one fell swoop. Alternatively, one can send the
document number(s) to NARA, and they will photocopy the documents for you at
ten dollars per record and send it your way. The microfilm rolls mentioned
are all the way in the back row of cabinets, on top against the wall, with
the green labels. There is a looseleaf binder in the bookcase at the back of
the microfilm reading room that tells you the microfilm reel number that
corresponds to the document number, as well as computers hooked up to the
Internet or other databases where you can look up the petition document
number if you haven't previously done so.

See you at the conference,

Machpelah Cemetery, Glendale, Queens- help needed #general

Edward M Lewison <neddana@...>
 

The Machpelah Cemetery's Manhattan office (718-366-5959) tells me that 2
of my CAHN/KAHN relatives are buried in Gate 23- Bnai Jischri Lef. But
because I cannot provide dates of death, the office is not able to give
me names/dates of any other relatives there.

So I need someone who is going to Machpelah anyway to check the burials
next to these 2 graves. If anyone is willing to help, please contact me
privately -- I can provide a few details, and I don't want to send more
than one volunteer on this mission of mercy.

Thank you,

Re: London names HOLRIE, ABRAHAM, BRAHAM #unitedkingdom

Bubby <yeruchem18@...>
 

Can't answer re Poultow or Poulton. Many immigrant Jews changed their names
or adopted new ones when they came here to London, England, as they did on
arrival or soon after in the US.
Thanks for the reply.

I wonder if the fact that they apparently lived near the docks would explain
why the Poultow/Poulton father was a shipwright and son was a marine
engineer.

Thank you for your reply.
You said: "Please tell us how you found that out -- it is news to me! "

I went onto JewishGen' website, to Infofiles, to Names, to the Jewish Given
Names Database and did a European (Poland) to foreign (United Kingdom)
search for Harris there. I invite you to do the same. The name that popped
up was Harris.

I'm open to any further suggestions.
