Merle Kastner <merlek@...>
 

Dear all,

Gladys Paulin has made a valid point and several suggestions that
should be helpful to genealogists in smaller communities - please
see below:

Having said that, the best lectures are usually those that get revised and
updated regularly until they are accepted for presentation at State,
National, and International conferences, many of which are there taped and
available for purchase. Many of these conferences have their full program
posted online for several months in advance, and often for years afterward.
Go to http://www.iajgs.org/ to see the lectures for the past two years
(links are on the current conference page for Paris). That is for the major
Jewish conferences. Also check out available tapes for the National
Genealogical Society (or equivalent in your country) and the Federation of
Genealogical Societies. Certainly they have lectures on vital records and
research for many countries and ethnic groups--even for Jewish research
sometimes.

Revue du Cercle de Genealogie Juive #108 #general

Georges Graner <georges.graner@...>
 

Revue du Cercle de Genealogie Juive # 108 has been distributed.

Here is the summary:
Revue du Cercle de Genealogie Juive, issue 108, Winter 2011
Guy Worms explains how the hyphenated surname STRAUSS-KAHN was formed.
The story takes place in Alsace. In 1808 Feistel Joseph becomes Joseph
STRAUSS at Haguenau (Bas-Rhin). His ancestry is given up to the 17th
century. His great-grandson Gaston Strauss is born in 1875. Another
Alsatian family is the KAHN family (a local spelling of Cohen) which is
also tracked up to the 17th century. Max Marius Kahn is born in 1904.
Gaston Strauss and Marius Kahn are remote cousins. Gaston Strauss' wife
is a catholic girl named Yvonne Stengel and they have a son Gilbert
Strauss in 1918. Gaston Strauss has been seriously wounded during WW1
so that he calls his cousin Marius to help him in his business. After
Gaston's death in 1934, his widow marries Marius in 1937. The latter
decides to adopt his step-son Gilbert in 1939. After this adoption,
Gilbert is officially called Gilbert Strauss-Kahn. Therefore this
surname comes >from the two husbands of Yvonne Stengel.

In the last issue of this journal Pascal Faustini looked for the
origins of the Wolf and Berr ORCHEL families >from Nancy. In the present
one, Pierre-André Meyer details some documents which allow to establish
the links between these families. He shows marriage contracts, after
death inventories, donations and family boards.

Avraham Malthête has studied the register of circoncisions of the mohel
Jacob HALPHEN (1828-1865) >from Bourbonne-les-Bains (Haute-Marne). This
register was given in 2009 to the Alliance Israélite Universelle library
by Mr Denis Marciano. This mohelbuch contains 605 acts >from many
different places all over in France. Members of the CGJ are concerned by
several of these acts.

Bernard Lyon-Caen was interested in the Alsatian surname Oury and
found that it was changed into Ury or Uhri among the offsprings of a
same ancestor in the 19th century.

Our Chairman, Bruno Bloch, provide us his children's ancestry. Only 7
generations are included in the present issue. The complete work,
totalizing 41 generations (up to an ancestor born ca. 635), can be
consulted on our website www.genealoj.org in the Members' corner.

This issue also reminds you to register for the 32nd IAJGS International
Conference on Jewish Genealogy, Paris July 15-18, 2012. Look at

(USA) National Archives Attempting Tp Restore the 1973 Fire-Damaged Military Records #general

In 1973 a devastating fire burned millions of US military records located in
the St. Louis, Missouri facility--we all thought the records were lost
forever. A recent article in the St. Louis Beacon,

National Archives, in St. Louis. We will not see all of the millions of
documents restored in our lifetimes, but they have already treated
15,000-20,000 records out of the 6.5 million burned.

Sarah FREEMAN née LEVY lived at 52, Smithdown Lane, LIVERPOOL in 1915.

in 1880. Sarah's father was David LEVY. They are listed on the 1901 & 1911
Dublin censuses with daughters; Eva, Ellen, Lilian, Minnie & Esther. In 1911,
Philip FREEMAN ran an Antique shop in Dublin. Philip's name was originally
FRIEDMAN/FREEDMAN. He was >from KOVNO. It is possible that Philip
died circa 1917. Please contact me if these names are familiar to you.

Hi Ralph -

I'd advise you to contact the Association of Jewish Refugees, in London.

Aliyah Bet experiences #general

Paul Silverstone
 

During the years 1938 through 1944, thousands of Jews fled Europe traveling
on old and rusty ships to Palestine, as it then was. Despite the intensive
efforts of the British government to prevent this, some 25,000 people
entered Palestine illegally, by the laws of the mandate authority, thus
often called “illegal immigration.”

I want to find and obtain personal accounts >from people who took this
dangerous route to safety on the ships of Aliyah Bet during this period.
Some have written about their experiences; I wish to learn of more.

Those who took part in this episode and/or their families are requested to
get in touch with me.

For a list of the ships and their 87 voyages see

Brick wall-NY Marriage Certificate #general

Marie Lubman <Mjn519@...>
 

I've hit a brick wall and hope I can get some suggestions that I have not
thought of yet.

I am looking for the marriage certificate for Isaac (Ike) ABRAHAMS and
Mary FISCHER. I have a copy of the invitation to their wedding reception as
well as the program book/dance card for the reception. The date was Dec 28,
1890. The location was at Everett Hall on 31 4th St, NY.

I have tried Italiangen.org, the NY Municipal Archives, and the Family
History Library in Salt Lake City. I have tried looking several months earlier
as well as into the next year, 1891. Tried very variations of spellings
for their names. Both were living in NYC. All these attempts have not located
the marriage certificate.

Could it be that in the excitement of their marriage and it being right
before New Year's Eve, they forgot or never reported it? Would they have to
had request for a marriage license before getting the certificate (or is
this something they didn't do in the early days?)

They were only married 10 years, as Isaac died in 1900.
