ViewMate - Polish translation needed #general

Debbi Schaubman
 

Greetings,

In searching ViewMate, I ran across an image of a Polish marriage
registration document that someone uploaded back in 2008. It appears
that the names which appear in the document are names that also appear
in my research. If someone can pull out any names, occupations, etc.,
I'd be very appreciative. (And, unlike the person who originally
posted the document, I would like some help with the names of the
witnesses.)

The document is at http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=12223

I realize that the quality of the image is not very good but, alas, I
don't have the document and can't rescan it.

Please reply privately. (I'll keep an eye out for responses on
ViewMate but, since I didn't post the document, I won't be
automatically notified.)

Many thanks,
Debbi Schaubman (Ann Arbor, MI)

Re: Question on Old Style vs. New Style calendar in Russian Pale #general

David Laskin
 

I am researching a relative born in Rakov (today's Belarus, then in Russian
Pale, between Minsk and Vilna). In American documents I have seen her birth
date given as 1886; I am aware that the old style calendar was in use in
Russia at that time.

My question is: is it likely that this date, which presumably my relative
used on documents after emigrating, is the old style -- or is it likely that
she (or some American official) re-calculated her birth year to the new style
calendar after she emigrated to the US in 1905?

Greetings.

I have posted to ViewMate a photograph of my great uncle's gravestone. I'd
be quite appreciative if someone could translate the Hebrew for me.

The photo is at http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=18195

Please reply privately or via ViewMate.

Thanks so much for your help!

Searching Cemetery in/near Orlando FL #general

John Freeman
 

I have a Florida Certificate of Death for Albert GOLDHAMER >from 1966. Among
other details, it states he was cremated Sept 30 1966, and that the name of
the cemetery or crematory was 'Garden Chapel' in Orlando, Fla. There is a
place on the form for the funeral director's signature, which is
indecipherable, but not his/her name or address.

I have tried contacting by email a few existing cemeteries and funeral homes
in the Orlando area but most have not responded. Two that have responded
say they have no record.

Does anyone have a suggestion of possible cemeteries / crematories in the
Orlando area that are, or were, named something like Garden Chapel?

Ultimately I am seeking the place of burial and the inscription on the
marker.

May 2011 Issue of The Galitzianer -- Request for Submissions #general

janicemsj@...
 

We are seeking submissions for the May 2011 issue of The Galitzianer.

We all use strategies and tools to discover more about our families.
Share with other members the strategies and tools that you used to
find living relatives or to learn more about your ancestry. Is there
an online "people finder" that you favor?

Have you traveled recently to your ancestral Galician towns? Share
your tips about making logistical arrangements or your experience with
driving on your own or using a driver/guide. Maybe your advice will
help someone feel able to embark on genealogical travel. Do you know
of someone you?d recommend as a guide or on-site interpreter?

Perhaps you have had success with obtaining notary records or Jewish
community records. Others could benefit >from your advice about the
steps you took to be successful.

Have you read a book or seen a film or a video on YouTube that
pertains to Galicia? Perhaps you've attended a local JGS meeting
about Galicia or know of an upcoming meeting on the topic.

Some of you had Galitzianer relatives who didn't settle in New York
but went south, north, and west, or lived in a community outside of
the U.S. What was life like for a Galitzianer in, say, Cleveland,
Montreal, Pittsburgh, Boston, London, or Philadelphia? Was there a
congregation organized by Galitzianers? What about a Galitzianer
cemetery?

Let me know if you are willing to be a periodic book reviewer for The
Galitzianer. If you are, send me some samples of your writing and
clips of any published review you have written.

Articles and graphics may be original or previously published and must
be relevant to Galician genealogical research. Electronic submissions
are preferred, though not required. We accept submissions >from both
members and nonmembers of Gesher Galicia.

If you wish to submit material for consideration, please contact me at
janicemsj@gmail.com. Though we accept submissions year-round, the
deadline for the May 2011 issue is April 8, 2011.

As far as I can tell, all people's names have the same suffix, e.g.:
- Abram Leizerowicz
- Leyba Mejerowicz

Am I correct in assuming that the second name is a patronym, and not a
surname?"
Based on the information provided, it is most likely that the two examples
are of patronymics, as Alex Sharon also pointed out. I can only add that
the exact meaning of a word can often be understood only in the context
of the entire document. There are surnames that look exactly like
patronymics, >from which they derive; there are other, occupational,
surnames, e.g. Krawiec or tailor, etc.

Similarly they are missing a critical role of the Voter Registrations
