Docut, Romania #general

M. Ronn
 

Years ago, relative who married into the family told me that he was born in
"Docut, Romania" (he spelled it for me and I no longer remember how he
pronounced it), which was apparently near Berlad. He told me that it also
had another name but I failed to write it down. This man's descendants have
recently developed an interested in knowing where he was born. I would
appreciate help anyone can give me in identifying its current name.

Please respond privately.

Thank you,

My Great aunt was married and came to the USA in the end of the 1800's or
beginning of the 1900's. I don't know her married name. Are there any
records where I might find her maiden name?

Re: searching Wilhelm H. GOETZ #usa

Dear Jack,
If you have access to the census files on Heritage Quest through your
local library, you may want to seek your relative in the census for
1860, 1870 and 1880. Often the first place an immigrant lives is
with relatives. You will also find out about his occupation and
other personal data.
You might also want to check out the online site about Jewish Civil
War participants (on both sides). I assume he was of conscriptable age.

New Steve Morse Website for Castle Garden Database #general

Patriot Email <thegenie@...>
 

Subject: New Steve Morse website for Castle Garden database

I see that Steve Morse must have been quite busy yesterday. The new
castlegarden.org website went online yesterday morning, and by late that
evening Steve had a one-step website for it.

Here are some of the things that you can do >from Steve's site which you
can't do when going to the castlegarden.org site directly. You can
specify all your parameters at one time. You can search on year of
birth. You can search on the passengers age. You can specify how you
want your results sorted. And you are not confined to a mere 10 hits
per page but can specify how many hits you want.

Steve's One-Step website is at http://stevemorse.org and his Castle
Garden utility is the link called "Castle Garden Passengers" in the
Castle Garden section. He actually has two such links -- one fetches
the data >from a pay site and the other fetches the data >from castlegarden.org
which is free.

If you have any questions or comments, please address them to Steve directly.
His e-mail address is on the top of his website.

Thank you very much - I never thought of that and will try to pursue it

from that angle. Thanks again.

There is another possibility - that the deceased left instructions in his
Will to bury him in a certain place or manner that was not within the Jewish
law or tradition - in which case you would not find him by searching the
usual places.

My unmarried uncle made such a request, so we donated a lectern, in his
memory, and with a full inscription, to the chapel of the cemetery where his
parents and sister had been buried. I was careful to word the inscription
in such a way as to make the link with the rest of his family.

A genealogist of the future might need to use some ingenuity to find him,
but the trail is there!

In other words, check the ancestor's Will, and also where his "nearest &
dearest" were buried.

Good luck!
