As I understand it, Jewish custom is to name on the 8th, or Circumcision,

requires a name for a birth certificate no later than the third day.

Thus, many Jewish children have the first name of "male" or "female" for the
official birth certificate and, when they reach their majority, many, but
possibly not all, of these now young adults go to New York State Supreme Court
(each of the 62 current counties in New York State has a New York State Supreme
court) and change the name on their birth certificate.
This does not just happen among Jewish families. When I checked my
non-Jewish grandmother's 1891 birth record in Saratoga Springs, New
York, it did not list her name, and city officials did not mention any
correction in responding to my question about her given name at birth.

Montreal (Canada) City Directories #general

Carol Gurstelle
 

I just discovered digitized and searchable city directories for Quebec
City and Montreal at
http://www.banq.qc.ca/portal/dt/collections/collection_numerique/archives/archives.jsp?categorie=1

The Lovell's Montreal City Directory covers the years >from 1842-1977.
The site is in French, although many of the directories are in English,
particularly the older ones. They are searchable by name as well as street.

The Almanach de Quebec covers the years 1780-1841. It doesn't appear to
be as flexible in the search options.

Re: Stillborn baby records in the UK #general

Paul A. Auerbach
 

I have been following this thread, and just happened to come across a UK
website that details how to order stillbirth certificates >from the General
Register Office (GRO): http://tinyurl.com/ckbj5e The difficulty is that, in
general, only the mother or father of the child can apply for the
certificate. If both parents are deceased, a brother or sister can apply if
they can provide their parents’ dates of death. The site doesn't address
what happens if both parents and all siblings are deceased. If anyone is
interested in pursuing this further, here's the GRO's email address:

will lookup NYC #general

Debby Gincig Painter
 

Does anyone have the time to find a will for
Morris GINCIG/GINZIG who died March 29, 1950 in (I believe) Manhattan.
He was a jeweler. I just need the names of the beneficiaries.

Also chances are there you would come across a second Morris Gincig/Ginzig
in NYC who was a printer. Though I am pretty sure the above Morris Gincig/
Ginzig is the family relation, this Morris Gincig/Ginzig's information might
also be handy to have (just in case).

Thank you

looking for Szalszend, near Miskolc #general

Pat Shaw <pshaw@...>
 

Hi Genners All,

Can anybody give me any information about Szalszand, located several
miles due north of Miskolc. My GGF, William FRIEDMANN, was born there
in 1858 and as we are going to Hungary later in the summer, I would
like to know if anyone can advise me where to go to look for his birth
records. I have already looked on the jewishgen site, as well as on
the Hungarian databases, to no avail.

Also, my GGM, Sarah (CZINER) Friedmann, was born in Buzinke, I think
in the northeast part of Hungary. Any information of this place would
be greatly appreciated.
