Re: NYC research #galicia

Phyllis Kramer <phylliskramer1@...>
 

Peter Jassem asked about research in NYC:

Here's some thoughts:
1. (Determine which Boro and when) you said your gggf lived in
Brooklyn for 50 years........whether in NYC or Brooklyn is absolutely
essential to know.......and if the death certificate is unreliable
for his age/parents, i wouldn't trust the time "in Brooklyn"
either....question is how long did he live in NYC (Manhattan) vs.
Brooklyn.........I would verify dates via the city directories. The
FHC has them. It's best to know this to narrow down your research.

2. Try the 1890 police census on www.ancestry.com --long shot but
worth it.

3. Before doing any naturalization or passenger list research, verify what
you can >from the Census of 1900/1920 and also 1910 (if you know the
address). They are relatively easy to research, either at the LDS FHL or
major libraries. They will tell you when he emigrated, and if he was naturalized.

4. Passenger list: not a priority since (1)you already know the birth place
and (2) it won't tell you the father's name, and (3) early lists are not
reliable for date of birth and (4) this is very time consuming. But if you
decide to research this, you can order the LDS film for 1897-1902 for your
soundex code for passengers......See if you can locate item(s) which match.
(When you get to NYC, you should go to NARA at 200 Varick Street and look up
each item). if he came before 1897 forget it.....There are no indexes so it
is practically impossible. But do check the 1890-4 years on the Hamburg web
site.and the JewishGen database..That's just possible.

5. Naturalization: check the 1920 census...If he was an alien then you might
be in luck and you should send away for his Brooklyn alien registration from
1940 (as far as i know this cannot be researched in person). If he was
naturalized, the best place is NARA....try the 3 indexes (southern district,
eastern district and all) for naturalization....Be aware that if he
naturalized before 1906 or so, there is no little information on the form.
The later he naturalized, the more information on the form.

6. VITAL RECORDS: at the NYC Municipal archives..(31 Chambers Street).
Probably the best source for you...Search for the wedding certificate
.....It's the most likely choice to give you correct parental names, because
he completed that himself. Also the birth certs of the children, although
often the midwife completed them, thus not completely reliable.

(Hints: you can get >from Municipal Archives to NARA in about 1/2 hour...via
subway.....or even a long walk.....NARA opens at 8:30 a.m. and you get
the best machines that way........Remember that the Municipal Archives
closes early on Friday). Also NARA is open Tues or Wed evenings, so you
can do a long day's work easily.

Good luck

I would like to verify names of my great-great-grandparents, parents of my
great-grand-uncle Louis Jassem, born in Rzeszow, Galicia, who emigrated to
the USA most likely in the late 19th century.
His death certificate ... gives the age of 70, and so does his tombstone at
Mt. Hebron cemetery in Queens, NY.
I was unable to find any documents in the Polish archives or LDS and
therefore I would like to try locate some documents in the USA, such as:
1. Ship manifest (turn of the century)
The quickest way to find this is to go to the National Archives on Varick
Street in Manhattan when you come to NY. It has the records there of the
ships' manifests. If you go to an LDS library, you have to order them >from
SLC and that takes time.

2. Naturalization record (few years later?)
Do you know where the naturalizations took place? Today is the last day to
log onto Ancestry.com for free use of all of their databases. They have
Manhattan's naturalization papers online. Otherwise, you have to go to each
courthouse to research the names, probably if not Manhattan, then primarily
either Brooklyn or the Bronx.

3. Marriage certificate
Again, you can try either an LDS library which has both the bride and groom
indexes >from the early years or the NYC Archives in Manhattan. Those are
probably your quickest and surest bets. There is an LDS library in Manhattan
also.

There is one thing that I have noticed in doing my own family research as
well as working on Census 2000. The dates and names do not always coincide
especially when it comes to dates, names and ages at times of death.
Depending upon who the informant was and how vast that person's knowledge
was is why things just do not coincide with the new knowledge that we have
unearthed. With the census, if one is not sure of another person's age,
then we ask the respondent to estimate that person's age or sometimes, the
Respondent incorrectly has given their own age twice. Many times also the
maiden names have varied for one individual's mother >from the time of the
person's birth certificate, marriage license application and then the death
certificate or even on a person's siblings' certificates, the names will
have varied. There was an error on my father's gravestone and we had it
corrected after the unveiling.

Hope some of this helps.

NYC research. #galicia

Peter Jassem <jassep@...>
 

This message is addressed especially to those who have experience in New
York City Research as well as to the Rzeszow Research Group members.

I would like to verify names of my great great grandparents, who were
parents of my great grand uncle Louis Jassem, born in Rzeszow, Galicia,
most
likely on February 2, 1875, who emigrated to the USA, according to his
descendants "as a young man", therefore likely in late 19th century.

His death certificate >from 1945 lists his birth date as February 2, 1885 but
it also gives the age of 70, and so does his tomb stone at Mt. Hebron
cemetery in Queens, so I assume that this was an error and the birth date is
February 2, 1875 (not 1885).

According to the family my great great grandparents names were Gimpel and
Chaja, however the death certificate of Louis lists the names as Abraham and
Sarah Price (which would likely spell in Galicia as Preiss). It is possible
that since he came to USA as a young man, his son Herman, who provided
information for death certificate invented the names or gave maternal
grandparents names by mistake and so on. On the other hand the tombstone of
Louis says "son of Mordechai". So now I have a choice of three names for
Louis's father, that is: Gimpel, Abraham, Mordechai and two names for his
mother: Chaja, Sarah Preiss.
I was unable to find any documents in the Polish archives or LDS and
therefore I would like to try locate some documents in the USA, such as:

1. Ship manifest (turn of the century)
2. Naturalization record (few years later?)
3. Marriage certificate - his children were born in Dec. 1901, Jan. 1905 and
Feb. 1907, so I assume that he got married to Rose Miller between the last
years of 19th century and not later than early 1901. He lived for 50 years
(according to death certificate) in Kings, New York and was likely married
there.

If you are experienced in New York City research please advice me where I
have the best chance to find the above documents. Also, any suggestions of
how to find any other documents that would help me to find out the names of
parents of Louis Jassem will be appreciated. I attended the NYC conference
and have a full list of resources. I am asking for practical advice, so
that when I go to NYC again I would be able to research it most efficiently.

Naturalization "indexes" #general

Howard M. Kaplan <howardmk@...>
 

Utilizing the *free* option for July in Ancestry.com, I found a
"Minnesota Naturalization Records Index." Ancestry.com's description
says "Several years ago, the Iron Range Research Center purchased the
entire set of microfilmed Minnesota County Naturalization Records (87
counties) >from the Minnesota Historical Society."
When it "became apparent the indexes to the records were incomplete
and often inaccurate," a Research Volunteer "made a new, comprehensive
index to the entire set. The present version contains 57 of the 87
(Minn) counties and includes spouse's name, county of residence,
microfilm reference, print volume and page number."
In these listings I found the names of my maternal grandfather, my
father, several of his cousins, possibly two of his brothers. Also his
great-uncle -- who repaid the family that helped him leave Russia and
avoid returning to the czar's army for the Russo-Japanese war -- by
bringing them all to Minnesota. I don't understand the "Reel, Code,
Volume, Page" columns' meaning? Where and how can I see these? Are
they microfilms in the Mormon Family History Center in Utah? Can they
be obtained at or via a *local* center? Do *all* local centers have access
