A story to inspire researchers #belarus

Eli Rabinowitz
 

Hi All

My talk, A Tragic Romance and Its Consequences, presented at last
year's IAJGS conference in Jerusalem, has now been published in
Avotaynu Online


http://www.avotaynuonline.com/2016/08/from-one-photograph-to-journeys-of-r=
esearch-and-discovery/

The story starts in Orla, SE of Bialystok, in the Grodno Guberna. My =
multi faceted research took me to many countries.=20

I trust that it will inspire those interested in family research.

It begins:

All I ever knew was that I am named after my great-uncle Moshe. Moshe
died in a motor accident, six weeks before his planned wedding. The date
of his death is unknown, but it was sometime between the late 1920s and
early 30s. That was the sum total of my knowledge of Moshe until a
photograph given to me in 2011 changed everything.

Which company would you suggest and are there any problems sending kits =

INTRO- Researching GARLITZ / GERLITZ / GARLLIC family [from Poland] #germany

Ivy Dennett-Thorpe <ivygar@...>
 

Hello GerSig,

I just joined the group. Thank you for adding me. I have been doing
genealogy research for 8 years. I have been concentrating on American,
Polish, Ukrainian, and Lithuanian records: I consider myself to be a
beginner in doing German Jewish Genealogy research and am an expect in
using a computer and the internet. I was born in Miami and I now live
in England. My paternal grandfather Isadore GARLITZ was born in Sierpc,
Poland and emigrated to the US with his family in 1904. The spelling of
our name varies; when transcribed >from Russian and Polish it is also
spelled GERTLITZ, Gerlic, and GERLIK. I've discovered that our family
originated in the Plock area of Poland in the early 1800s. Recently, I
found the birth record for my great great grandfather Solomon GERLITZ
in 1814 in Biezun, a town in Plock Gubernia. His birth is also the
earliest record I've found for Chaim Wolf Eliasz GERTLITZ (1784-1844) and
Sarah Roza Herszkowiczow GERTLITZ (1787-1857) my great great great
grandparents.

I've corresponded with other people researching branches of the
Garlitz/Gerlitz/Gerlic family and we believe the family originated with
Chaim Wolf 's father Israel Elijah Gerlitz (1768-1838). We believe
Israel Elijah left Görlitz and settled in Poland in the early 1800s, and
our family name comes >from his birthplace. We have confirmed that Israel
Elijah GERTLITZ had a father named Chaim and another son named Zusha
GERTLITZ who also settled in Poland.

My primary research goals now are to find out if Israel Elijah GERTLITZ
and his family lived in Görlitz. I have been searching records for many
towns in the Plock Gubernia but I can't find any records for Chaim Wolf
earlier than the 1814 birth of his son Solomon, or any records >from this
time for Zusha and Israel Elijah. I wonder if sometime before 1814 Chaim
Wolf and his wife Sarah Roza, Zusha, and Israel Elijah all left Görlitz
for the Biezun area. Does anyone know if are there any surviving vital
records for Görlitz and the Görlitz area for the 1810s, the 1800s, and
the eighteenth century? I would appreciate advice.

My JGFF Researcher ID number is : 347340

The family names and ancestral towns that I have entered in the JGFF
(JewishGen Family Finder) are:
(for my paternal grandfather's family) Garlitz >from Boston, Garlitz from
Sierpc Poland, Gerlic/Gerlitz >from Plock Poland; Weinbaum >from Sierpc Poland.
[and others >from Lithuania and Ukraine.]

state archives research #ukraine

Edith Goldman <phal4gal@...>
 

Lois,

I may have inadvertently caused a lot of confusion with my response
and if that's the case I totally apologize. I'm new at this type of
research and when a previous posted said "state archives" I understood
that to mean a US state. In my case it was the state of Wisc., all I
needed was a marriage certificate and it took about 2 weeks.

I did get help >from a group called Random Acts of Genealogical
Kindness (http://www.raogk.org); 1 of their volunteers found the
actual marriage date, which made ordering the certificate possible.

The group's volunteers are mostly in the US but they do have outposts
in other countries. Once you register with them (free) you can view
the list of volunteers to see if anyone works in the area you're
researching.

Hope this helps.

Edith
