Re: Dr Nathan Adler officiating at marriages #general

As Dr Nathan ADLER was related to my husband's family, he has officiated in all the
marriages in the family but even before he was related. I could also see in the
"Jewish Victorian" of Doreen Berger that he officiated in hundreds of marriage
of people not related.

Hi Cecilia

You do not say where you are, so I am not sure if you would have access to the
London Metropolitan Archives (LMA) - they hold some of the archival material for
the United Synagogue (US). The only problem is that you need permission >from the
US to access them. There are a number of downloadable PDF information documents
produced by the LMA to be found at
http://www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/Corporation/leisure_heritage/libraries_archiv
es_museums_galleries/lma/visitor_information/free_information_leaflets.htm

How to research your family #sephardic

Carol Rombro Rider
 

Someone just asked about researching their family (a generic surname) >from
Spain. No place of origin was given, no date reference, no first names. The
post concluded with the following"
"I am researching my family and would like to know what I can about them"

Please go to the homepage for Jewishgen and click on "Learn". Under
"Infofiles" click "Topics", then "Basics" and then click "A Genealogical Fable by
Dan Leeson".

His story deals with Ashkenazi genealogy but all the questions you need will
be answered there.

Nathan ADLER, Peddler #general

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

Sometimes, one finds quite interesting things by accident whilst searching
for something else. In this case, I came upon a discussion of the murder of
a German Jewish peddler who had only been in America for 16 months before he
was killed on November 6, 1849 in Venice, Cayuga County, New York.

You can read about this crime at:
http://www.griffingweb.com/the_murder_of_nathan_adler.htm

The piece was fascinating as it gave details of the life of the peddler and
his two brothers, one of whom was Charles ADLER, all of whom lived in
Syracuse, New York, and how they organized their peddling business. It gave
real insight into this lifestyle which many of our ancestors followed and to
the dangers inherent in travelling throughout the countryside by oneself.

The discussion of the crime through newspaper accounts and the subsequent
search for the killers, the trial and the hanging of one of the killers
makes quite interesting reading.

On my last two stays in Vilnius in '91 and '99, I used to prowl the shops along the
street behind the university with lots of crafts and touristy stuff (street name
escapes me now). I recall one store that was filled with nothing but old photo
albums. I looked through a few, but they did not seem to be of Jewish families.
But I remember wondering at the time, whether anyone had ever gone through
everything, looking for Jewish-related photos. Since I can't imagine anyone buying
albums of family photos, I assume they were collected in the debris of the war.
Incidently, a gentleman was also selling old documents, and I remember him showing
me a WW I travel pass issued to a Jewish merchant. Who knows what is for sale in
the antiquaria and curio shops of Eastern Europe?

Nancy Zimmelman is California's first female State Archivist. Appointed to her

paper-based records, will be available to researchers and historians for years to
come.

Nancy, who has spoken to us several times over the years, will talk May 21 on a
number of topics: the role of the State Archivist, why records are important, the
historical tradition of public access, the Freedom of Information Act and
California Public Records Act, the secrecy divide and the history of secrecy in the
U.S., Executive Order 13233 & the Presidential Records Act Amendments of 2007,
State records restrictions, the cost of restricted access and changing the pattern.

Please join us for the May 21, 7 p.m. meeting at the Albert Einstein Residence
Center, 1935 Wright St., Sacramento. For more information about the Jewish
