Re: NY State Record Access #general

I doubt very much that the Federal Freedom of information act will apply to
an agency of State government. However, I understand that New York State
has its own Freedom of Information Act.

It is an abbreviation of "ditto", meaning "same as on the line above". We
tend to use a single set of double quotes for this purpose today.

Can anyone tell me what the term "do" in the family name column of the EI

176 Clinton #general

Shalom Jewishgenvelt:

My latest mystery involves a NYC death certficate. Riva MELTSNER died
October 17, 1909 at the Montefiore Home for Chronic Invalids. Has anyone
ever heard of this institution? If so, do they have records >from 1909? The
death certificate states that Riva lived at the Montefiore Home for 8 1/2
months prior to her passing. Her usual residence was 176 Clinton. It is
possible that family still lived at this address in 1910 and that they were
enumerated in the census. Searching for them by name on-line has not been
successful, so I would like to know how to search for them on-line by
address: 176 Clinton, NYC, 1910 census. If you have the answer, please
contact me. Thanks.

Additionally, if anyone has a connection to Congregation Beth Hamedrash
Hagodol, 60 Norfolk Street on New York's Lower East Side, or to either of
Beth Hamedrash Hagodol's burial grounds at Machpelah cemetery or Union
Fields cemetery, please contact me.

Finally, if anyone has a connection to Congregation Nachlath Tzvi of Harlem,
please contact me.
Zei gezunt!

Sephardic roots? #general

Armagnac, Ana M. <armagnac@...>
 

Just very recently through a DNA test my brother had done on himself we
found out we have Jewish roots (Sephardim) >from Spain (or France?). My
mother's last name was SANDOVAL AGUILERA and my father's last name was
CHACON MENDEZ.

Are there any others with these last names?

This is my first time in actually making an inquiry to this site or any
other site.

Thanks for your response.

trying to find the descendants of sisters Rose FLINK and Sophie HOREN #general

אלון גינצברג <along@...>
 

My name is Alon Ginzberg. The grandfather of my father had many sisters
in the U.S.A. His name was Michael ROZENSHTROM. He was born in 1874 in
Volhnya -Russia (probably >from Ostrog or Zaslev - but I can't be sure)
and in 1923 he immigrated to Palestine - Israel. In our family it was
known that he had many sisters who immigrated to the U.S.A. - among them
there was one sister who I found details about her recently. Her name
was Sprintza (and in America she was called Sophie). Her husband's name
was Frank HOREN. She came to the U.S.A in 1910. She had 2 children: Rose
and Jack. Sophie lived in New York and died June 1944. I have a picture
of the tombstone.
Rose FLINK and Jack Horen died in the 90'. Both of them have no children.
Sophie (Sprintza) had four (4) sisters, none of whom I know nor do I
have any knowledge of their married names or where they lived. I presume
they are listed by age but am not sure of this: 1- (Sidae or Sigae)
Sonia, 2- (Bloome) Blooma, 3- Hannah, 4- (Toili) Tilley.
There is a notation that there were 3 sons, who must have been brothers,
but there are no names. I presume that these were brothers to those listed
above, but seemingly they did not come to the U.S (probably one of them
is my ggrandfather - Michael Rosenstrom / Rozenshtrom)
One more fact: The name of the father of Michael and Shprintza is
Shmirel (Shmarihu.(

I need any help in order to find the descendants of the above sisters.

Does anyone know sisters (probably were born between 1890 - 1870) with
such names?
Does anyone has any idea how should I find them?

Thank you very much
