Alphonse LAZARD #france

pierre28@...
 

Alphonse LAZARD
The dilemma is in the death Certificate of Alphonse LAZARD Paris 12,1861,
#2291 (09-Oct-1861).

According to the document this person died at 42 yo, was born in Bar-le-Duc,
and was previously married to Clemence BLACH. The place of death was
probably the Fondation Rothschild since one of the witnesses was living
there. Neither witnesses were relations.

I also have an Alphonse LAZARD birth certificate Gondrecourt, 1815,#1,
born 6-Jan-1815 in Gondrecourt, and married to Catiche BRACH of Saarlouis .

1) could not find any births of named LAZARD in the 10 year tables of
Bar-le-Duc.
2) Gondrecourt to Bar-le-Duc is 25 miles
3) information at death given by non family members is usually unreliable.
4) the fathers of Alphonse and of Catiche were both Butchers.

Do I merge these two? What would you do?

Viewmate 261 - Do you recognize? photo vs genealogy methodology #general

bette_sscf <bette_sscf@...>
 

Robert is really an optimist hoping that someone will recognize the people in the
photo! Luckily, he knew their names.

Methodology using genealogy research found the following documents:
~ Ancestry's US Public Records and Phone and Address Directories for Alex STEINITZ
born 1918 and Rose STEINITZ born 1920 living at the same addresses
~ Ship manifest arriving New York Sep 5, 1931 on the Bremen >from Bremen for Alex
Steinitz and Leon Steinitz, birth dates and address in Philadelphia
~ US World War II Army Enlistment Records for Alex Steinitz (single in 1941) and
Leon Steinitz (married in 1942) born Philadelphia, residence New York
~ SSDI lists matching birth and death dates in 2005 for Alex and Rose Steinitz in
Orlando, Florida and for Leon Steinitz in 1990 Miami, Florida
~ Miami Herald obituary one-liner for Leon Steinitz names cemetery and funeral home
~ Veromi lists relative of Alex and Leon named Ada Werner Steinitz, perhaps Leon's
wife
~ Anywho and Zabasearch list Ada W. Steinitz' current address and phone in
Hollywood, Florida
~ 1920 census index under STNEITZ lists Louis 36, wife Paula 36, Anna 7 born
Vienna, Austria, immigrated 1913, and Leon 5 and Alic 1 6/12 born Penn
~ Ship manifests dep Hamburg May 1 and arr New York May 10, 1913 on the Amerika for
Paula Steinitz 30 and daughter Johanna 2 , last residence Wien, Paula's parents S.
EISENER, to husband L. Steinitz in Philadelphia, birthplace Kostel, Austria*
~ Ship manifests dep Hamburg Oct 11 and arr New York Oct 23, 1912 on the
Kaiser Auguste Victoria for Ludwig Steinetz, Austrian Hebrew, last residence
Wein, wife Paula Steinetz 27 Ferdinandstr Wien, to cousin David Rosenthal? c/o
Leibner 225 University Place Woodhaven, NY, born Nildaburg? Austria
~ Naturalization index on Jan 26 1928 in Philadelphia for Ludwig Steinitz 44 and
minor children Lansi 16, Leon 13 and Alexander 9 list declaration, petition and
certificate numbers
~ Illinois Death Index lists Ludwig Steinitz birth and death dates/places,
cemetery name, occupation, spouse name and FHL film number

*Most likely Robert's EISINGER family >from Kostel, Moravia (formerly in Austrian
Empire, now Podivin, Czech Republic) is a spelling variant of Alex Steinitz'
mother Paula's EISENER family >from Kostel, Austria.

Suggestions include sending for Social Security applications and death certificates
for maiden names and parents' names, calling Ada Werner Steinitz' listed phone
number and contacting the Vienna Jewish Community for marriage records (see
"Beginner's Guide to Austrian-Jewish Genealogy" by E. Randol Schoenberg at
http://www.jewishgen.org/austriaczech/ausguide.htm#Kultusgemeinde). Online

Celia Male #austria-czech

Dear Siggers,

Recently, there have been some postings wanting to know how our esteemed
research colleague, Celia Male is doing. Many of us miss her erudite
participation in our SIG, and especially her willingness to help others in
their search for answers. Yesterday I had the pleasure of speaking with her
and her husband, John, and can report that her condition is unchanged. Celia
is paralyzed on the left side of her body and is wheelchair bound. Her
speech is normal and her mind is perfectly clear. She has difficulty typing
and consequently answers few emails. Understandably, her spirits are low,
especially due to the lack of improvement with time. The fact that she
cannot participate as before is especially troubling to her. She does read
the SIG postings but does not participate. She asked me to express her
thanks for the interest shown in her by the various Siggers and wishes
everyone good luck with their research.

Hello,

I am looking for information about the location of SEVEDNIE,
Austria-Hungary. Dora Ford was born there in 1883 and lists her
parents as Barbara KNIEZNIK and John OGUVCAK. Any connections to the
town or to the names would help. I have reached out to the Hungarian
SIG and general discussion group too. Thank you!

technology for oral history recording #general

Philippa Robinson
 

I used to record people with a Sony Professional Walkman cassette recorder. I also
had some opportunities to borrow Marantz (cassette)and Uher (reel to reel)
recorders. These machines gave very good recordings if used properly. You could
attach an external microphone and you could set recording levels to minimise
background noise. But tape is replaced now;digital is the thing.

What would you recommend for recording interviews? Portability and cost is a
consideration but to be balanced with how easy it is to operate (small machines can
be very fiddly and controls difficult to see) and how good the recording quality is
(though maybe that isnt so variable with digital media?). I would like to be able
to record singing and instrumental playing as well although at the moment i'm
mainly concerned with people telling their stories.

thanks - and I'm sure other people in this forum would benefit >from your
suggestions in my case, UK availablility is a must

Re: Images or information on NYC locations #general

Ron Arons
 

I concur with other posters regarding images of New York:
- NYC tax photos available at the NYC Municipal Archives
- maps.google.com (you have to turn on 'photos' under the word 'traffic' in the
upper right hand corner
- images available at the NY Public Library. Regarding this solution, the NYPL
has many, many photos available online at: digitalgallery.nypl.org . Without too
much effort (okay, I made a few attempts to get the right answer) I was able to
find (by typing 'Central Park West' into the search field) a few images of the area
including: - Image ID 718471F - Manhattan: Central Park West - 73rd Street
(1927). This is an view >from the air of this area
- ID 1540631 - a map 'bounded by W.74th Street' (the map does include W.76th
St)

Speaking of maps, I'd also recommend looking at Sanborn (insurance) maps
for the area. For more information about Sanborn maps see:
http://www.sanborn.com/products/fire_insurance_maps.asp You can order
these, but they are awfully expensive. Alternatively, find a library
that has Sanborn maps for NYC. ProQuest just recently released its
Sanborn Maps GEO Edition, which layers old Sanborn maps on top of Google
Maps. This new facility is only available by subscription by your local
library, so lobby your library to get this amazing facility (I have no
business relationship with ProQuest) For more info, see:
