Re: new york research #general

Both Phyllis Kramer and Allan Jordan about covered it in terms of what
one should consider before heading the NYC for research. I do want to
add one resource for NYC probate records that one might check before
heading to the City: FamilySearch.org.

If you go to
https://familysearch.org/search/image/index#uri=https://familysearch.org/recapi/sord/collection/1920234/waypoints
[MOD. NOTE: shortened URL - https://goo.gl/OVSX9U ]
you will find that they have digitized the index cards one may view
in person at the Kings County and Queens County Surrogate Courts. The
Kings County cards are supposedly through 1971 and the Queens County
cards are through 1987.

If you find an online card image for a relative, you might consider
calling the court and asking if they would pull files for you in
advance of your visit. I don't know if they would do that, but it
doesn't hurt to ask.

UPDATE: JriNfPost Companion Macro for JRI-Poland NameFinder Add-In #poland

David Sloan <sloan.d@...>
 

This item is for those of you using the JRI-Poland NameFinder Excel
Add-In (see http://jri-poland.org/tools/namefinder.htm). Although
designed primarily for use with JRI-Poland databases, the tool works
well with many genealogical name data formats.

I have created a companion macro known as JriNfPost as a aid for
constructing and executing complex search queries. Applied after
running JRI-Poland NameFinder, the companion macro (post) processes
the NameFinder output to facilitate use of powerful Excel features
such as autofiltering and pivot tables. JriNfPost, while reasonably
flexible,is designed to work with Daitch-Mokotoff (D-M) Soundex
matching and, as such, imposes certain constraints on the choice of
JRI-Poland NameFinder options (see header below). Also, effective
searching depends on the user possessing a good understanding of
advanced Excel concepts.

There are two files available for direct download (via Google Drive). The
first file is an Excel workbook which has the JriNfPost macro embedded
as well as several examples,

The second file is the visual basic source code. It can be added to a
workbook via the Visual Basic Editor (Alt+F11 >from Excel).


Example workbook download: https://goo.gl/p7oRgx

Visual Basic source download: https://goo.gl/sIIfS0

Comments, suggestions, or bug reports can be sent to my attention via
email.

Sincerely,

David Sloan

Seeking Mittler relations #galicia

Perry Mittler <perrymi@...>
 

My Grandfather sailed to NY in 1907 to visit an Aunt Lali River, address
looks like 351 Rivington Street. He came back to Poland within two
years and built a factory and a life. He perished in the Shoah. As my
father is about to turn 90 this month would love to see if there is any
family related. My Grandfather's name was Moritz Mittler, son of Leon
Mittler who died in 1905 and buried in Andrychow, Poland Cemetery.
The records come >from EllisIsland.org web site on searching my
grandfather's name. I know somebody out there can help me narrow
down this information and make my father's birthday very special.

Thanks

Translation assistance requested - German or Polish (1881 Krakow death register) #general

Susan Zweighaft
 

I've posted an image of what appears to be a death register entry and need a
translation of entry #127 for both the column headings as well as the
information entered in script. (or if you know of a template showing the
translation of the column headings, that would be most helpful).

The JRI-Poland index identifies the 1881 record >from Krakow as a death record
for Lazar ZWEIGHAFT. Not sure if the language is German or Polish.
It is on ViewMate at the following address ...
