1848 Census question #hungary

peter bakos <pgbakos@...>
 

Hello,

The question of Hungarian names usually comes up when we tend to forget that
in Hungarian usage the family name is always given first.

Bernat means Bernard and is not an uncommon family name. In fact, a great
many Hungarians have family names which could be given names, which adds to
the confusion. How somebody of Jewish ancestry ended up with such a name is
also open to speculation which one of our more learned colleagues will
answer, I am sure.

The Lisauers #hungary

Bela Mihalik <mihalikbela@...>
 

Dear Marian,

The Bernat is the surname of Lisauer Simon's wife, Borbala. Tirk Bernat=20
is their son-in-law, surname is Tirk, givenname is Bernat. But actually=20
there isn't any proof, how is he their son-in-law, because Lisauer Simon=20
had two daughter: Terezia and Hani. So you need more research that=20
which daughter's husband was Bernat.=20

USA Form 505 Annotation on Passenger Manifest - Clarification #general

Jeanne Gold <twig@...>
 

Based on emails I've been getting regarding my original post about the Certificate
of Arrival, I thought it worthwhile to clarify something I have (re)learned about
the Form 505 annotation found on passenger manifests.

The district number found in the annotation refers to the district office of the
INS (now USCIS) where the Form 505 application was filed.

It may or may not refer to the district court where the petition for naturalization
was filed.

In looking through some very old emails, I found one >from Richard Gelbke, Archives
Specialist at the New York NARA archives, dated 02 Apr 1998.

I quote: "The annotation 2-799967 10-11-40 on the passenger manifest indicates that
Mr. Goldglied filed for citizenship and on October 11, 1940, the Immigration and
Naturalization Service verified his arrival and issued a Certificate of Arrival
(2-799967) to the Court where he had applied."

In this case the information directly corresponded to his petition for
naturalization and it was indeed in district court in NY. Yet, Mr. Gelbke reported
"We examined the indexes to these records and were unable to locate information
relating to the naturalization of a Leib Goldglied."

In an email >from Rebcca Warlow, Archives Specialist >from the Mid-Atlantic NARA,
dated 03/31/2000, regarding another immigrant I was researching, she clarified
that the "505" referred to a form filed requesting a certificate of arrival and
that the district number usually refered to the district court, but not always. If
the person resided in another state and the local offices had not been able to
verify the passenger arrival, then the 505 Form was sent to the INS district most
likely to have the passenger's information. In which case, the district number had
no bearing on the court in which the ancestor made the petition, but only the INS
district office where the C of A was issued.

In conclusion, although Fannie Greenberg's annotation contained the 2 for Southern
NY district, refered to a Form 505 application and was issued in 1942, I am
reasonably certain she was in CA sometime between 1936-1942. Family members, living
at the time, said she never left CA and lost touch with her about the time I was
born (late 1950's).

Lorna Kay <lorna.kay@...>
 

Message >from Essex Records Office:

Following the closure of our Colchester branch at the end
of March, we will begin the process of transferring
documents currently held at Colchester to Chelmsford.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to move such a large quantity
of material into our strongrooms and still maintain our usual
level of public service. In order to minimise the disruption
to the overall service we will therefore close the Wharf
Road Record Office Searchroom for the week of Tuesday
10th to Saturday 14th April. We apologise sincerely for any
inconvenience this may cause you.

We will be open for the rest of April (excluding Good Friday
and Easter Monday), and expect to be able to provide a full
service. However, if you plan to visit us during that month
you are advised to check beforehand, in case there are
difficulties with the items that you wish to see.

Once re-opened we shall be on our way to providing a
better service overall - by making all records about Essex,
including Colchester and Tendring, available in one place.


Thank you.

The name ROSENSTRAUCH is very rare in France, and there are currently
only four of them in the directory : Alfred, Dominique, Marie-Helene
and Sylvette. Then, they are certainly related to your family. As
usual, I'm sending you their addresses privately.

Concerning the LANDER families, it's more difficult... There are
about 30 of them, and probably not all of them are related. Anyway,
I'll copy their addresses for you. There are also four PLATTER, but
are they related to your family ?...

I suggest you ask your question (after having shortened it as much as
possible) on the site of the Cercle de Genealogie Juive

Re: Origins of Galician Jews #galicia

d_richter@...
 

In general, the Jews of Galicia, and all of pre-partition (1772)
Poland, were given some refuge in the kingdom of Poland over the
course of the late middle ages 1300-1600. Throughout this time
period, Jews in France and Germany suffered various local
persecutions and pogroms. An excellent book is "The History of the
Jews in Russia and Poland" by Simon Dubnov for much about this. I
have yet to see much material on the migration of the Ashkenazi
into Germany and France before 1300. I think it's safe to assume
they were residents of the Western Roman Empire in Italy and France
and the Rhineland (and even England, which expelled all Jews in the
mid 1200's) - but it's not clear if most would have moved north
from Italy during the dark ages (600-1100) or if most were already
in what is today France and the Rhineland.

It's a fascinating story, and one part I find puzzling is the origin
and staying power of Yiddish in that time.
