Re: HYAMS family of New Orleans and Charleston #general

Thanks to the meticulous genealogy work of Rabbi Malcolm Stern, the answer to
Joyce's question can be found in his well-known publication "First American Jewish
Families", which is now searchable on the web-site of the American Jewish Archives:
http://www.americanjewisharchives.org/FAJF/intro-how.php

On the Hyams family tree:
http://www.americanjewisharchives.org/pdfs/stern_p119.pdf we can find the Hannah
HYAMS sought. She is the daughter of Henry HYAMS [b. 1793 London] and Judith
UNKNOWN, middle of the page, slightly to the right. Hannah was born in 1838 and
was married to Alexander NORDHAUS.

New enhancement to Steve Morse's site -- New York record finder #general

Dick Plotz
 

Steve Morse has added a feature to his One-Step website to make it
easier to find New York City records.

If you go to Steve's website, http://stevemorse.org, and hover over
the "Vital Records" heading at the upper left, you'll see several
tools for New York vital records. Now, when you use the birth,
marriage, and death indexes prepared by the Italian Genealogical Group
(IGG), the results you see will include the FHL roll number on which
the actual record can be found. This eliminates the tedious
back-and-forth process previously required for finding the records.

NYC surname ZARETSKY #general

Cindy Potter Taylor <knife-princess@...>
 

Genners,

I knew the moment I had a "tidy-up" that I would regret it! A long time ago I was
in touch with a woman >from greater Boston who, either had New York Zaretsky
relatives, OR had a friend who did.

I have come into possession of two stunning photos (early too) of the Zaretsky
sisters...Sarah and Bessie. I would love to share these with interested parties.
Sarah went on to marry Max B. Epstein-Bangor, Maine and Bessie married Charles
Karon of NYC. Other siblings included Jennie (Sheindel?) whose married name was
Davis and two brothers, Morris and Samuel Zaretsky..>from the Vilna? area.
Anything sound familiar out there in genealogy land?

All the best >from Boynton Beach, FL

Thank you re Shuchman direction #general

Marie Spearman
 

Thank you sincerely - to the many who responded to my request for direction. A
phone call to Mount Lebanon Cemetery for more information was great advice - a
reason it's good to have someone else - or several - look over your shoulder to
point out an obvious missed next step.

Another member suggested Kipperman could be the daughter's hard-to-read married
name, and this phone call confirmed it.

A great resource suggested is: http://www.fultonhistory.com/fulton.html
-Search Over 12,698,000 Old New York State Historical Newspaper Pages-
No obits found for Harry or Clara - but I'm book marking it.
I appreciate all your help.

Seeking descendants in Israel #general

Berna Heyman
 

I am searching for any descendants of Yehudit Ben YAKOV, nee RATMAN. In 1999, her
address was Shlonsky ***, Tel Aviv, 69410, tel: *** She passed away in 1999. Her
father was Zalman RATMAN.

Yehudit contributed Yad Vashem testimony for many members of her family, including
her sister - Debora (Ratman) KALMANOWICZ of Lida, Belarus. Debora was my great
aunt. I am seeking information on my great uncle and aunt: Yacob and Debora
(Ratman/Retman) KALMANOWICZ and their son, Bore, >from Lida.

My great aunt, Debora Ratman, was born in 1898 in Shchuchyn (Szczuczyn), Belarus.
The family was listed in both the Shchuchyn and Lida Memorial Books.

I do not have much information on Yacob, Debora, or Bore Kalmanowicz. I am most
anxious to find out if there are descendants >from the RATMAN side of the family. I
have already written a letter to the address above without a response, along with a
telephone call.

I would greatly appreciate any assistance you might be able to provide
in trying to locate descendants.

Please respond privately Thank you very much.

Re: Genealogical enigma re my paternal grandmother #general

Steven Lasky wrote

I had written to you the other day about my paternal grandmother, whose
naturalization papers listed her as being born in and last resided in "Lomza,
Warsaw, Poland," and I stated that I thought this might have been
a mistake as Lomza wasn't part of Warsaw Province.

Well it seems to be that this is not true. Perhaps someone who knows specifically
when Lomza Gubernia was part of Warsaw Province and when it as part of Bialystok
Province could shed some light in this matter. If one looks at various records
on JRI-Poland, one can find many tables of birth, marriage and death record
indices for the mid to late 1800s where it is stated at the top of the table
"Gubernia: Lomza/ Province: Warszawa," and other tables where it says "Gubernia:
Lomza/ Province: Bialystok." I tried to figure out by looking at the years of the
vital records between which years it was part of Warszawa Province and what
years part of Bialystok province. I know that borders did change.

Steven,

Following establishment of Congress of Poland in 1815 territory was sudivided into
eight 'Wojewodztwa" (Voyevodsips). During years 1816 to 1837 town Lomza was a
capital city of Augustow Wojewodztwo and Warsaw was a capital city of Mazowieckie
Wojewodztwo. [BTW Bialystok during this period was incorporated within Grodno
Guberniya]. Please review map of Congress of Poland for this period, and click to
enlarge to see details..
http://pl.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Plik:Congress_Poland_1831.jpg&filetimestamp=20070710171158
[MODERATOR NOTE: Alternate Tiny URL: http://tinyurl.com/2dy3j6x ]

In 1837 Polish name "Wojewodztwo" was changed to Russian "Guberniya" but the
administration divisions shown in the map above did not changed. In 1845
administration reform have reduced number of Polish Guberniyas to five instead of
previous eight, and have changed names of some Guberniyas. Mazowieckie and
Kaliskie (Kalisz) Guberniyas were unified and renamed as Warsaw (Warszawska)
Gubeniya but Augustow Guberniya (with Lomza as the capital seat) have remain the
same. Following 1863 Polish National Uprising and intensifying Russification of
Poland, 1867 administartion reform has increase number of Guberniys to ten.

Please now refer to Russian Poland map of 1907

http://pl.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Plik:Polska_1907_adm.png&filetimestamp=20070303011955
[MODERATOR NOTE: Alternate Tiny URL: http://tinyurl.com/2dcaam7 ]

As you can see >from the map (please click to enlarge), previous Augustow Guberniya
was subdivided now into Lomza and Suwalki Guberniyas, and Warsaw and Lomza
Guberniyas became a neighbors.

Furthermore in 1897 territory of Warsaw Guberniya was enlarged to accommodate parts
of the neighboring Lomza and Plock Guberniyas.

And this is Steven, I believe, was the period at the end of the 19th century that
your grandmother is referring to as being born in part of Lomza Guberniya that has
been "swallowed" by Warsaw Guberniya.
