Surrogate's court #general

leadingnote@...
 

"Each County has a Surrogate's Court which maintains jurisdiction
over all actions and proceedings relating to the affairs of
descendants, probate of wills, administration of estates and
guardianship of the property of minors. Surrogate's courts shall
exercise such equity jurisdiction as may be provided by law. There is
at least one judge of the surrogate's court in each county. Judges of
surrogate's courts are residents of the county, chosen by the
electors of the county. Within the cith of New York, surogates are
elected to fourteen year terms and in other counties, ten years."

I found this several years ago, and now can't remember where exactly.

In my research, some papers at the Surrogate's Court in Brooklyn
dealt with the estate of someone who had died intestate. Those papers
gave me the married name of a daughter and her address - vital for my
research.

Re: Seeking MEIROVITCH in Canada #general

The Toronto JGS lists only two Jewish funeral homes on their web site
(http://www.jgstoronto.ca/Cemeteries.html), so a telephone call to
them may quickly give both Luba's death information and if you are
lucky, a pointer to her next of kin.

If that does not help, the web site also give contact info for the
Jewish cemeteries and also notes that the Toronto JGS hold many of
the records. Also perhaps someone with access to Toronto city
directories could check to see exactly how they spelled their name
(if different >from what you gave) which could help with a check of
telephone records (http://canada411.ca). If you know their address in
the 1970's that could be useful.

J.Ellis asked about surrogates court in NYC. I've been there many
times (31 Chambers St, 4th floor). Its a throwback to old research
experiences of outdated and dusty libraries.

The court contains probate information (wills, letters of administration,
estate taxes etc) for Manhattan residents. There are old fashioned
computers with indexes for the last 40 or so years, and a room full of
libers and dusty card catalogs for prior information. As far as i know,
there is no information available online. I would suggest Estelle
Guzik's book, Genealogical Resources in NY, which is available in
most libraries. This is the definitive work on everything in the city

What many localities call Probate Court is called Surrogate's Court
in the state of New York. The website of the New York County Surrogate's
Court is at

The fee schedule is described at

The court has wills and their indexes, probate packets, and letters
of administration up to the present time.

Re: the victims of political terror in USSR #belarus

Dear Researchers,

some people have difficulties to navigate through "victims of terror"
database.

Even if you have a screen translated does not mean it is properly seachable.
This list may be translated, but search and filtering features are of course
in Russian.
Way around.
Use that list in Russian.
You have to know how Russian letter sounds.
Below is the site with easy to learn and memorize Russian reading rules.
It is very easy.
http://www.vgd.ru/read.htm

Now you can search in Russian using Russian letters here:
http://www.lists.memo.ru

After you get something, select and copy, go to Google /Language Tool.
Paste into left pane, select "Russian to English" below and click
"translate".

Some people have already found what they needed.
Good luck,

Hi Leanne

If you search in the Consolidated Index of Sephardic Surnames
http://www.sephardicgen.com/databases/indexSrchFrm.html
you will find 61 Matalons, 6 of which are >from Egypt.

Same for most of your other family surnames.

Hope this helps.
