Re: Parents Marriage Certificate -- New York, 1924 #general

When in doubt, use www.stevemorse.org to find things like birth,
marriage, and death.

As it happens, I searched for your parents' marriage, and found
nothing. Perhaps they were not married in the NYC area - New Jersey,
perhaps?

Sent for marriage certificate covering years l923,1924.and 1925
Received reply could not find listing of this marriage.

Checked film at LDS for New York City,Queens,Bronx and Brooklyn for above
names and dates, no results.

FAERBERG is the americanized surname. I now have information that my father
is listed on the ship manifest as Boruch FEUORBERG. Having sent for and
receiving a copy of his birth record it shows his name as Boruch FEUERBERG.

My question is can i get any information for the *last two surnames* on the
internet regarding the marriage. At this time i cannot leave home due to illness
and a major surgical procedure and don't know if and when it would be
possible to get out and search.

finding a Soviet doctor after the war #general

Paul Gordon <headbeagle1@...>
 

I'm trying to find out some information about a Lithuanian relative, a
doctor, who survived the Holocaust.

My relative Nechama lived in Kaunas before the war. She apparently fled
into Russia proper when the Germans were advancing but was nevertheless
almost killed by the Germans. After the war, the Soviet doctor who
treated her was another relative named MARKOVICH, >from the town of
Ariogala. I do not know his first name. I am trying to find out who
this doctor was and what became of him.

Unfortunately, I don't know whether this medical treatment was in
Lithuania or another part of the USSR. Does anyone have any suggestions
on ways I could learn more about the Soviet doctors who treated
Holocaust survivors after the war, either in the Lithuanian SSR or other
parts of the Soviet Union? Would the USSR's Extraordinary State
Commission records contain such information?

Thank you for your suggestions.

Louis POSNER, Breslau/Wroclaw to England & back, mid-1800s #general

Irene Newhouse <einew@...>
 

According to a family history, my relative Louis POSNER was born in Breslau,
now Wroclaw, Poland. He was one of 7 children, all of whom are listed in the
family history. I was able to verify the names & births of 5 of these 7
siblings >from Breslau records on LDS microfilm; they were born between 1820
and 1834.

Also according to this family history, Louis got so seriously into debt as a
young man that he went to England to avoid imprisonment. There he got his
head together & married, eventually returning to Germany.

The fog on this family lifts some decades later. His two sons William [not
Wilhelm] and Rudolf settled in Pforzheim, Germany, where they were partners
in a jewelry business. I got my first hint of their existence on finding a
telegram with their business logo on it to my grandfather, regarding his
purchase of his wedding rings >from his older cousins.

from the Pforzheim city archives, I've learned that William was born in 1862
and Rudolf in 1870, though not where.

I have been unable to learn the name of Louis POSNER's wife.

I have just searched a commercial index of UK births for Willam and Rudolf,
but haven't found them. I also searched the same source for Louis POSNER's
marriage, and found nothing.

Does anyone know of a source in England regarding immigration, or
registration of non-citizens which might contain interesting information? Or
any other way in which I might learn the name of his wife?

Incidentally, Rudolf is the father of Dr. Laura PERLS, one of the founders
of Gestalt Therapy.

Thanks for help with search tips!

I have posted five photos of mostly unidentified relatives on ViewMate. They

brother) is believed to have been photographed in Kansas City, Missouri,
USA. It is at:

Bessarabia Vital Records Database #general

Bob Wascou <robertw252@...>
 

JewishGen and ROM-SIG are pleased to announce an
update to the database "Bessarabia Vital Records".
This database includes the old "Kishinev Vital
Records" database. This database is a component of
both the Romanian and Ukraine databases and can be
found at < http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Romania/ >
or < http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Ukraine/ >.

The database contains over 53,800 birth records, over
14,200 marriage or divorce records, and over 26,300
death records >from Kishinev and Kaushany Moldova,
for a total of over 94,000 records.
Kishinev and Kaushany were formerly in the Bessarabia
gubernia of the Russian Empire. These records were
microfilmed by the Genealogical Society of Utah and
provided to JewishGen for transliteration.
The original records are located in the National Archives
of the Republic of Moldova in Kishinev (Chisinau).

When completed, the Bessarabia Vital Records Database
will contain birth, marriage, divorce and death
records >from 1829 to 1915, but will not contain all
years. Many records remain to be transliterated.
Work to transliterate these records is ongoing.
The database will eventually contain records >from
Beltsy, Bendery, Izmail, Kaushany and Kishinev.

In order to complete the transliteration of these
records we need dedicated volunteers who are able and
willing to help transliterate the Cyrillic, Hebrew or
Yiddish script. We are looking for people who are able
to decipher difficult handwriting and can donate a few
hours a week. If you are interested in volunteering,
contact Bob Wascou at < robertw252@aol.com >.

Detailed information about the Bessarabia Vital
Records database can be found at

Dear All,

I have just learned of a book published by a survivor >from Chernivtsi
(Czernowitz). I have not yet had a chance to see or read this book but
thought that there might be some of you who would find it of particular
interest, therefore I am bringing it to your attention. Other than that
I have no vested interest in this book.

The title is, "Before memories fade", and the author was Pearl Fichman,
who recently passed away. She was born in Chernivtsi, and earned her
University degree there. She also received a Master's degree in
Comparative Literature >from Columbia University, after coming to the
US. According to her son, it was very important to her to remember..!

If you are interested here is the bibliographic information : BookSurge
