World War II ("Old Timers") draft cards for NYC microfilmed by Family #general

Renee Steinig <rsteinig@...>
 

Checking the Discussion Group Archives, I see that there's been very little
conversation here about the World War II draft registration cards.

Commonly known as the "Old Timers' Draft," the Fourth Draft Registration
covered men born between April 28, 1877 and Feb. 16, 1897 -- men who were
between 45 and 65 in April 1942, when the registration was held. Citizens
and aliens alike were required to register, including men who had served in
prior wars. Each registrant was asked his full name, residence, mailing
address and telephone number, birth date, birth place, age, name of employer
and place of employment, name and address of a person who would always know
his address, and physical description. In many cases, a town of birth is
included.

Note that the government had no intention of drafting these middle-aged men
for active military service. The registration was held to document their
occupational skills for possible use in the war effort.

Over 900,000 cards for the five boroughs of New York, as well as cards for
New Jersey and Puerto Rico, are housed at the National Archives-Northeast
Region, 201 Varick Street, Manhattan
(www.archives.gov/northeast/nyc/new_york.html). They were originally
organized by draft board, making access difficult, but were alphabetized
about three years ago by volunteers >from Long Island's Italian Genealogical
Group and other local organizations. The NYC cards are alphabetical within
each borough; the NJ cards are organized by county.

More recent news about the cards held at Varick Street is that they have
been microfilmed by the Family History Library in Utah and are now available
through Family History Centers. For film numbers of the NYC cards, search
for the keywords ** Selective Service New York ** in the library catalog,
www.familysearch.org/Eng/Library/FHLC/frameset_fhlc.asp . At this time only
the microfilms for Manhattan (118 rolls), Brooklyn (119 rolls) and Queens
(63 rolls) appear to be listed in the library catalog, but according to
"informed sources," the Bronx (30 rolls), and Staten Island (9 rolls) have
also been filmed.

In the past, the National Archives on Varick Street responded to mail
requests for searches of Fourth Registration draft cards (up to three names
at one time for $10). I've tried to find out >from NARA whether this service
is still available but haven't received an answer to my email. I also don't
know whether NARA staffers will still bring out the boxed cards for
researchers' use or if we're now expected to use the microfilm. Maybe
someone who has been at NARA NY recently can shed light.

For other localties, "Old Timers'" registration cards may be at one of the
12 other National Archives branches around the country
(www.archives.gov/facilities/index.html) and some have been filmed by the
Family History Library. Substitute other place names for New York in your
keyword search of the FHL catalog for additional results, including records
for many New Jersey counties.

According to Leslie Corn's excellent article, "World War II Fourth
Registration Draft Cards: A Newly-Released 20th-Century Resource for
19th-Century Research," originally published in the Winter 2002 newsletter
of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, registration cards
for many cities and towns, including the rest of New York State, are still
with the Selective Service in Washington (www.sss.gov/records.htm). To see
that article and others on the subject, search Google.com for the words **
World War II draft cards **.

Re: Proof of Inheritance #general

Hi Steve -

I think you should look for their probate files,
and possibly that of your wife's father. You
can find information on how to order them at
this website
https://www.myfloridacounty.com/ and click on
the link for "Order Official Records"

If their county is included there, you might be
able to order the documents on line.

The Social Security administration
might be able to help you if they have any
documents showing there were no children, but
I don't think they keep the records longer than
5 years after a person dies.

Maybe they would accept something like
an affidavit >from their Rabbi if the belonged
to the same synagogue for a number of years?
Their lawyer?

Dear Cousins,

My wife has received notice >from the German government that she in line for
some sort of money because her grandfather lived in Germany (before the
war). They asked for proof of inheritance, something indicating that she is
a sole survivor in her grandfather's line. Her uncle and his wife died in
Florida, childless. She has no siblings. Her father is dead.

On what sort of document would I find that her uncle and aunt had no children?

Best, Steve Orlen

Dear fellow researchers:

I would greatly appreciate any assistance in translating the following
document posted on ViewMate (VM6534). The direct link to the document
is:
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=6534

In accordance with our list guidelines, kindly reply to me directly at
marc@patentstation.com rather than to the list.

Here is what I know which might be helpful: I believe it is an 1853
Ciechanow death record for, according to the JRI-Poland index, Abram
BUCH.

In the index, the father is indicated as "Nuchim." Unfortunately,
the quality is not great, but I think it may be legible if you can read
the script. If I am right, I believe this is another ggg-grandfather of
mine. I would like to confirm if it mentions a wife "Dwojra," or if it
mentions any of his children. If so, I will be very interested to learn
anything else >from the document, like the name of Abram's mother or any
other information.

I thank anyone who attempts to assist me.

descendents were concerned?"

The emigres would be considered English people of the Jewish faith.

Judaism is a religion. Some would say it is a culture or a way of life; but it
is not a nationality.
See this article
http://www.nhc.rtp.nc.us:8080/tserve/eighteen/ekeyinfo/midcol.htm on The
Middle Colonies as the Birthplace of American Religious Pluralism
by Prof Patricia U. Bonomi of New York State University.

It says that these colonies brought settlers >from the areas of Europe that
had been deeply disrupted by the Protestant Reformation.

Unlike England, the borders of these States would have been changed
continuously (I think) by these ructions.

I used to work on the ethnic minorities in London. There were successive
arrivals of Huegenots, Jews, Irish and now South Asians (of various
religions) (Indians, Pakistanis and Banglandeshis).

Some of these descriptions are religious (Jews and Huegenots - which only
came >from France).

Irish was prior to earlier in the last century a geographic location and not
a national location - of course, it was a euphemism for Catholic.

If we go back to the American situation, before 1871 Germany didn't exist
and probably most of the other European nation states didn't exist.

Given that the population of the American colonies were generally fleeing
religious persecution they were also likely to be thought of as belonging to
the religious community to which they belonged, much as the Jews would have
been.

Anyway the number of Jews in North America in the Eighteenth Century was
miniscule. They had only arrived back in England in 1656 after all - they
weren't going to be getting on the plane a generation later, as happens
today.

England was only united with Scotland under the British Crown in 1601.
Ireland was only included in 1801 (I think). So I suspect that the term
British was a political one which specifically referred to the Crown, the
Government or its agents, after all in those days many soldiers were
mercenaries anyway.

If we look at Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British it says that it
refers to the Kingdom of Great Britain 1707 to 1801 and people >from there.

It also says that it refers to the people with allegiance to the British
Empire.

http://www.fcps.k12.va.us/OakViewES/harris/97-98/america/colonization/colonies-
middle/index.html
(a school website) specifically refers to the Quakers and the
Pennsylvania-Dutch, and Scotch-Irish settlements.

William Penn is described as a Quaker.

The Pilgrim Fathers were, after all, a branch of the Puritans.

I gather there were people who were actually banned >from Puritan colonies
(presumably because of their beliefs!).

The school website refers to both the British and English army. The
Americans are either Americans or patriots.

In this article about the Middle Colonies
http://college.hmco.com/history/readerscomp/rcah/html/ah_059400_middlecoloni.htm
a list of the colonists includes Dutch Calvinists, Scandinavian Lutherans,
German Baptists, Swiss Pietists, Welsh Quakers, French Huguenots, Scots
Presbyterians - note the linkage of geographic area and religion.

Dear fellow researchers:

I would greatly appreciate any assistance in translating the following
document posted on ViewMate (VM6533). The direct link to the document
is: http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=6533

In accordance with our list guidelines, kindly reply to me directly at
marc@patentstation.com rather than to the list.

Here is what I know which might be helpful: I believe it is a death
record of an "Jciek" or "Ick" or "Iciek" PULTUSKIER. I believe this
individual was my ggg-grandfather. I would like to (a) confirm that it
is who I think it is, and (b) obtain any further information >from it.
If it is the right person, it might confirm that his children were
Szulim PULTUSKIER and Riwka PULTUSKIER (and perhaps list other siblings
of whom I am not aware), that his wife was "Laia," and that his father
was Moshe (like indicating his name as Moskowicz).

What I am hoping is to learn something more, like what was his wife
Laia's maiden name or her father's name, what was Jciek's mother's name,
where and when was he born, etc. (I am hoping to eventually determine
which ancestor may have been born in Pultusk).

I thank anyone who attempts to assist me.
