Dear Hennie,
I think it was only until 1922 that a wife automatically became a citizen
through her husband's naturalization. She may have believed that she was
a citizen on his papers and did not discover that she wasn't until 1943-44
when she was probably asked to produce proof of her citizenship.

I got a lot of hits at the Ellis Island site for the name I am researching,
SILBERBUSCH. However, I have never heard of most of the towns of residence
on the records. I tried looking them up in Shtetlseeker but didn't get to
first base. I believe that most of my ancestors came >from Bukovina or
Eastern Galicia. Has anyone heard of any of the following towns?

Wieraboka
Oberlin
Roszylowic
Jadielnitza
Tjimianica

Thanks for your help

City of New York". Louis came to California after his wife died and he
passed away in Napa on September 10, 1949.

My friend is a descendant >from their son Morris and his wife Beatrice.
Morris was a doctor in the military and also died in 1949. Any Help on
this family would be appreciated. These line are >from Ships manifests on
the EIDB.

Hi,

I am relatively new to genealogy. I have found my great--grandparents
names on my dad's side. My mothers side I knew my great-grandparents and
have not got any further. Wherever I look they are not there. I am
beginning to think they were illegal aliens (only kidding).

My maternal grandmother was born in Odessa, Russia. Her name was Fannie
SCHAFFER. Her mother's name was Annie FISHMAN Schaffer and her Dad's name
was David Schaffer (Tevya). I know they arrived in January 1900 but I do
not know where. They lived in Boston and Revere, MA.
My maternal Grandfather was Isaac Alexander MARCUS born in Boston 1896.
His father was >from Poland (Julius MARKUS) and his mother Rebecca BAKER
was >from Lithuania.

My paternal grandmother was >from Lithuania (Eva ALPERT) and grandfather
was Poland (Max WEINSTEIN). Eva's mother was Leah Tsvia SHAPIRO Alpert
LATZ (LOWN) and Max's father was Nathan Weinstein and mother was Marie
WITZTUM.

With all of this information, I can't seem to get any further than finding
out names. Where should I go >from here? Can anyone help?

Thanks,

Nationality Act of 1940 #general

Dear Genners.
Can anyone help me figure this out? My gf Ben (Benzion) SCHER was
naturalized on July 5, 1923 in Chicago. My gm Ella SCHER is listed as his
wife on his petition. Why would my gm then file a Petition for Naturalization
(of a Married Person, under Sec. 310(a) of the Nationality Act of 1940?
Why was this second petition required? She filed it in 1944 thirty-nine
years after she arrived in the US.

Hi Roy,

My ggm used the Gratch Undertaking Co. at 2235 Division St, Chicago, IL
and the undertaker's name at the time (1935) was Arthur Mandel.

The name of the Undertaker firm on the certificate appears to be
something like "Natch Mid Co" or perhaps "Watch Nud Co". The part of
the name that is shown clearly is that the first word ends with
"atch". The address is also shown clearly as "2235 West Division
Street".

The individual who signed the certificate >from the Undertaker's firm
also had a name that ended in "atch", but the beginning of his name is
also hard to decipher.

Does anyone recognize the name of the Funeral Home or Undertaker from
this information? It doesn't look like any of the Chicago Funeral
Homes with which I am familiar. >>
