Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Need translation of 1747 ritual murder document in Polish #ukraine

Ronald D. Doctor <rondoctor@...>
 

I have obtained a 27 page document that is a 1747 court case in which
several Jews are tried and convicted of ritual murder. The penalties are
the most gruesome I ever have read about. The trial occurred in
Krzemieniec, Poland (now Kremenets, Ukraine). The document is
handwritten in an old form of Polish. I would like to get this very
important document translated so that we can post the translation on
JewishGen. If you are willing to volunteer to help translate this
document, please contact me.

Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Research at Dnepropetrovsk Archives #ukraine

Paul and Debbie Weiss <ancesthntr@...>
 

I have tried in vain, several times, to contact the Dnepropetrovsk Archives.
Does anyone have a current URL for the Archives, so that I can not only
see what records are available, but can contact the Archives to ask about
obtaining copies of those records. I, personally, am seeking records >from
the 1860-1917 timeframe.

Thanks, in advance, for any assistance or advice that you may give.

Ukraine SIG #Ukraine PIZER RENOVITCH - Tracing help needed, please #ukraine

MARTIN RUBIN <martinrubin001@...>
 

My maternal great-grandfather was Barnett Renovitch. (~1859-1920). He was a
tailor in London, England {and he always gave his name to the census taker
as Goldstein!}.
On his marriage authorization, Barnett Renovitch gives his father's name as
Pizer
and states that he came >from Walkowishk, Poland {presumably Vilkaviskis?}.

I understand >from a genealogist friend that the book "Jewish Surnames >from
the Kingdom of Russia" says that the surname Renovitch originated in
Vilkaviskis and was originally Rejnowicz. Are there any other probabilities
for Vilkaviskis?

My Friend also came across a well-loved rabbi in London named Reinowitz,
also >from Vilkaviskis. She suspects that they were probably related but has
no firm proof. He is of the right age to have been Barnett's uncle. Does
anyone have these names in their Families? Can anyone advise me on how to
find VILKAVISKIS records as I am struggling to get further with this? Pizer
would probably have been born prior to 1881.

I would be grateful for any help and you should respond privately, unless
giving general advice on Lithuanian / Polish record sources.

Re: Question on Last Residence in SSDI #general

Dear Genners,

Eden Joachim wrote that initially the SSDI indicated a
cousin died in Puerto Rico and that getting a death certificate
from Puerto Rico was difficult.
A more recent entry in the SSDI indicated U.S. Consulate
as last residence.

A death certificate of sorts or a document certifying the
death of an American citizen in another country can be
requested by contacting the U. S.State Dept.

The details can be found at:
<http://travel.state.gov/family/issues_death.html>

I am posting this to the group in case others have the same
question as the original poster.

Help please to find Hungarian "phantom" #general

MARTIN RUBIN <martinrubin001@...>
 

I am trying to trace death details for Samuel Friend, my
maternal g-g-g-Father. When his son, Morris Friend married Rachel
Levy {England - 1868}, Samuel Friend was shown as deceased on
the marriage certificate. We can find no trace of him in England
and he probably never emigrated >from Hungary. Would anyone know
how I might trace his records…I am not certain what area of
Hungary he came from. I would really appreciate any help.
Please respond privately.

Consulate, will they be able to provide me with his death certificate. I am
merely trying to find out if Charles Morris' wife survived him, as her name
is unknown and I have been unable to locate his marriage in New York City,
Manhattan or the Bronx, circa 1933-1940, and / or if he had children. He
was born May 10, 1913 in the Bronx, and lived on the Grand Concourse in
1937, when he was an attorney with a firm on Broadway in Manhattan.
Sometime after 1940, he moved to Albany, New York area and worked as an
attorney for New York State.

He had a brother named Clifford and a sister named Audrey, who was a
psychologist / social worker at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, Manhattan,
in the mid to late 1940's. Her married name is uncertain, although it may
be something similar to PETTIT. Their parents were Herman MORRIS and
Elizabeth HANSELMAN.

This branch of my family has eluded me for many years, so your assistance
and suggestions are appreciated.

Ellis Island Manifest #general

Does anyone know why some names have an "X" next to them
on the ships manifest?

They don't seem to follow any order and sometimes appear
2 or 3 in a row and then a single one here and there.

Looks like the link won't take here. I am interested in
line 19 in particular, but the reason for it in general.
