Paul and Julia Rattner (Ratner) #france

travellingtrish@...
 

Hello,

I am searching for my grand uncle and aunt Paul and Julia Rattner (or Ratner) and
their 2 daughters Xenia and Sasha (Alexandra).

Paul born 1859 was a famous Jewish engineer in Russia who was a Russian Staatsrat
and was given the title of Excellency for putting the electricity through St Petersburg
where the family resided. He was originally Pavel Israilovic Ratner(Rattner) but it
changed to Pavel Isidorovic Ratner.

I do not know what happened to the family once they left St Petersburg after the
Russian Revolution. I have one undated letter which must have been written in 1936,
given the content of the letter with the address 6 Rue Lincoln.

The 2 daughters were mentioned in my great grandmother’s obituary in a Viennese
Newspaper in 1905. Julia was Julia Rosenstein prior to her marriage. I would be
very grateful for any information .

Ada Holtzman z"l #general

Rose Feldman <rosef@...>
 

Our friend, Ada Holtzman, passed away. Her funeral will be at Kibbutz
Evron - where she was born and raised - tomorrow (Friday), at noon.
Ada has had a tremendous influence on the Jewish genealogical
community, mainly thanks to her extensive research of many Jewish
communities in Poland. Her website, "Zchor" - which means "remember"
(http://www.zchor.org";) - holds lots of information that has helped
many genealogists. May she rest in peace.

Re: Death records for Stillborns 1890 - 1900 NYC #general

Ira Leviton
 

Dear Cousins,

Paula Blank asked about birth and death records in New York City for babies who
were stillborn or died shortly after birth.

Certificates of stillbirths were started in the 1930s (I believe the year was 1938,
but it may have been a little earlier). The N.Y.C. death indices, which used to be
available in the New York Public Library, had a section for stillbirths at the back
of each annual volume, after the individual boroughs. These certificates were for
record-keeping of public health data like tracking infant mortality, and not given
to parents or anybody outside of the health authorities. New York State and City
now issue some sort of certificate to parents of stillborn babies on request, but
started only in the last ten years or so.

However, there should be a death certificate recorded for any baby who was born
alive, no matter how briefly the baby lived, even if it took one breath - a death
certificate was required to transport the body for burial. In theory, there should
also be a birth certificate, but since there was no practical use for one, it may
have been skipped, especially in the first years after it was required and the baby
was born at home, or outside of a hospital.

Another place to check for stillbirths before the 1930s are on landsmanshaft
cemetery maps, if the society can be identified and the cemetery or YIVO has a map,
or in cemetery ledgers. A stillborn baby should be noted, often something like
'S/B Cohen' or 'baby Cohen.'

Congressman Nathan FRANK #germany

Neil Kominsky
 

Does anyone have a genealogical handle on Nathan FRANK (b. Peoria, IL,
1852; d. St.Louis. 1931)? He served one term in the US House of
Representatives (1889-1891) representing St. Louis.

The biographical information I have on him identifies his parents as
Abraham FRANK and Branette WEIL. who immigrated >from Bavaria in 1849.
Nathan's siblings were August, Louis, Joseph, and Amelia. He never
married.

I am trying to figure out if this FRANK family connects to the FRANKs
on my tree, who originated in Altenschoenbach, Lower Franconia.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

LOBBENBERG and JACOBS #germany

Hank Lobbenberg
 

Recently, I saw a possible connection to my family if the spelling is
correct.
Regine JACOBS, born 1893 in LEIWEN, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany and died
in 1942 in the Shoah, married LOBBENBERG (first name unknown).
If the spelling is correct, then he is almost certainly part of my family
tree.
Can anyone shed some light on this man. My LOBBENBERG families originally
came >from BRAKEL in Kreis Ho(umlaut)xter. In the North Rhine.
Thank you and Shana Tova.
