Re: uncle-niece marriages in Rhode Island #general

Suzanne Klein <ssklein@...>
 

I've been interested in the thread on uncle-niece marriages. Apparently
the Rhode Island possibility was known to immigration lawyers. I
remember (1949 or 1950) that a couple travelled >from New Jersey to
Providence to marry.
He was an elderly uncle, she a somewhat younger niece. The marriage was
partly to being his or her children >from Europe. The father was the
Rabbi and my brother, mother and I held the chuppah.

The story somehow got into Life magazine (complete with pictures)
perhaps because my father used his contacts in city hall to speed through
the formalities of blood test, license, etc and some enterprising
reporter picked it up.

Several months later a young Cuban appeared at out door. He had seen the
story and tracked my father down. His English wasn't very good as I
recall. He had fallen in love with his niece and thought that the Pope
had given my father an exemption >from the church's incest restrictions.

He was crestfallen when my father got through the language barriers.

Place of origin listed in Russian records #general

a person's place of origin is often a part of the record.... Is this
generally the actual birthplace of the individual or the most recent

Herbert Lazerow replied:

Neither. This is the place to which the individual is officially
registered. It cost money to change your registration, so my KIMELMAN
family were still "townspeople of Vitebsk" in 1910, though they had
lived in Nezhin Ukraine since at least 1852, and the parents of many of
them had been born in Nezhin.
This is not necessarily the reason in all cases. My family lived on Jewish
agricultural colonies in the south-east Ukraine. They settled there in 1846
having come in the main >from Lithuania. Recently acquired Revision Lists
from 1858 show that listings of the families then living in the Ukrainian
colonies included a statement which proceeded most family groups lists
">from the community of Rassein" etc. This was recorded since the colonists
travelled in 1846 in convoys as a specific group denoted by town of and
accepted by the authorities as potential colonists. This information is
invaluable to assertain towns of origin instead of the common
generalizatiom ">from Kovno Guberniya".

March-April 1946 "Bialystoker Shtimmer" #general

Miriam Deitcher <deitcher@...>
 

I've been directed by a very helpful JewGenner to a list of "Jews in
Bialystok After the War"
in the March-April 1946 issue of the "Bialystoker Shtimmer". I've
searched the internet and the JewGen discussion forum archives and can't
find any info on that publication. I assume it's a magazine or
newspaper of some sort. Anyone have any ideas how I might find this
particular publication. A possible ancestor (Naftoli NOTOWICZ) is on
the list and I'd like to see if there's more info included. I'm excited
to see that someone >from my grandmother's family may have actually
survived the Holocaust. This is my most difficult branch, and any help
is greatly appreciated. Please reply privately.

Success story #general

Jenny Jackson <jenny@...>
 

I have looked forward to the day that I could join others in posting success
stories. After starting my research 2 years ago with no family tree beyond
my parents and their parents, I now have extensive information about all
branches of my family history. I have used the services of two researchers,
one in Romania and one in Poland who have been very successful in finding
family records. The latter took over a year, but finally struck a goldmine
of records and information for the shtetl of Kutno. I live in Melbourne,
Australia and have relied on the Internet for almost all of my research.

Other family members have been delighted with the discoveries too. Now we
know the names, dates and some information about my great-great-great
grandparents going back to the early 1800s. Through the process I have
developed relationships with overseas relatives whom I didn't know existed.
And I have also developed friendships with other researchers who have
provided me with invaluable help and advice. And now, whether they are ever
interested or not, my children will have a sense of all of the people that
contributed to their genes and their upbringing.

I still have one mystery to uncover - the fate of my uncle who was separated
from his brother (my father) in Auschwitz when my father was sent to factory
work. Maybe I'll never receive confirmation of his fate, but I will keep
trying.
