How do I get a birth certificate from Poland for the 1920s? #general

Leslie Weinberg <artsoul@...>
 

I am trying to get a birth certificate for my grandfather's nephew, who
was born in Tyczyn, Poland probably around 1921 or 1922. We know the
last name, and the parents' names, but not his first name. I have
contacted the Polish Archives and they have ignored me! Leslie

more on the Icko/Yitzchak question #general

Carol W. Skydell <cwskydell@...>
 

With his permission I am sharing Prof. Esterson's reply to my question.

Could the name Icko found on the Yad Vashem database be a nickname or a
familiar name for Yitzchak?.
Indeed, this is correct -- Icko is a secular version of the Yiddish
nickname Itsko which was used in a number of European countries, including
Belarus. The Hebrew name to which Icko is linked is Yitschak. Icko does
not (yet) appear on the Belarus Given Names Data Base currently on the
Belarus GNDB on JewishGen at:

< http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/GivenNames/ >

but is in the updated data base which will soon be posted to the JewishGen
Belarus web site.

Re: Need help in locating Riverside Cemetery Or Midtown Memorial Chapel in New York #general

Dear Sarah;

It would be helpful in the future if your email signature indicated where
you live.

The information you are after is:

Riverside (Saddle Brook)
Founded c. 1907 County: Bergen
12 Market Street, P.O. Box 930, Saddlebrook, NJ 07662
201-843-7600
Was founded as Saddle Brook Cemetery. Records are available
chronologically by date of burial, and by burial society.


This is a direct copy >from the list of NY area cemeteries maintained by the
NY Jewish Genealogical Society at http://www.jgsny.org/.

Best regards,

Sam Schleman

Hello To all Researchers:
I am hoping someone out there can help me. I have just recieved a death
record on my great-great grandmother Celia Steiner. She died in 1935.
On her death record it states she was buried in riverside cemetery and
that the services were held at Midtown Memorial Chapel.All the census
records I have indicate that she and her husband Samuel lived in the
bronx. She was admitted to Lebanon hospital on the 4/23/1935 and died
4/29/1935. What I am trying to find is the date of death for the
husband Samuel and hopefully maybe by contacting the chapel or cemetery
they could give me the date so I could go ahead and order the death
record on him. I do not know if this chapel or cemetery is still in
existence or where in new york they were located. For the chapel it
gave the address as 171 west 85th Street and that was in 1935. If
anyone can help me I would greatly appreciate.

Has anyone located the Kehilla records of Nyirbakta in any of the LDS

Thanks.

Dear HSiggers,

I have just discovered a brother to my gg-grandfather in Zemplen county in
the second half of the 19th century. The problem is that it may be two
brothers - or is it the same person? I would be glad to hear your opinion on
it.

The family was called Hechtmann, which is a very rare name. There was only
one single Hechtmann family living in Hungary in appr. 1850 and they were
living in Vasarhely, Zemplen. (This way I very rarely find anything about
this branch of my family, but when I do, it is surely related to my family.)
Jakab Hechtmann had two sons I had known about. But there was a third one,
too:

According to the Vasarhely birth-, marriage- and death records Moses
Hechtmann and Sara Scheindl had a son named Ignac Mayer in 1868, had another
named Samuel in 1872. Then Moses Hechtmann died in 1873 aged 28.

According to the Vasarhely census dated 1870, there was a Moritz Hechtmann
living there (born in 1839).
His wife was Sali Kornhauser and they had a son called Jakab, who was born
in 1868.

I just cannot decide whether Mor and Moses were the same person.

The reasons why I think they were: 1) people having the Jewish name Moses
were usually called in Moritz in official papers 2) there was only one
Hechtmann family, there is no evidence whatsoever that TWO families called
Hechtmann were living in Vasarhely paralelly 3) my gg-grandfather had a son
called Mayer Jakab, too, 4) Mayer and Jakab were both born in 1868.

The reasons why I think they were not: 1) their birthyears differ 2) their
wives had different names
3) Mayer and Jakab are two different names, too.

Could it be that Sara Scheindl was the Jewish name of Sali Kornhauser, Ignac
Mayer was the Jewish name of Jakab and that the birthyears differ as they so
often do in those old papers?

I would be interested to hear you comments on my gg-grandfather and his
difficult family.

Thank you and kind regards,
Andras Koltai
