Help Finding marriage record #general

Stuart Ungar
 

I've been pretty successful finding various family records, but one has
eluded me. I am looking for the marriage record of Bela (or Benjamin) UNGAR
to Celia WEISER. They are my paternal grandparents.

Should have been married around 1918 in NYC. Any help in finding this
and/or suggestions greatly appreciated. You can email me at stuartungar@me.com.

Hi everyone,

I am going to the Ukraine this summer, Dnepropetrovsk in particular, to
research some of my roots. I am in touch with Eugene Snezhkin through
the internet. He sounds very nice and I am considering hiring him as a
records checker/tour guide for my daughter and I. Has anyone used him and
what were your experiences? Perhaps you have other guides who you prefer?

Thank you for whatever guidance you can offer.

Request ViewMate translation of 3 headstones - Hebrew/Yiddish #general

Carol Rubin <evans1035@...>
 

I have posted picture with 3 headstones on it on ViewMate, and would
appreciate help with translation of the writing on the 3 stones. I am
assisting a friend with family genealogy and we're hoping that once
translated, all the writing will give clues as to other family members/info.

The file can be viewed on viewmate at:

Thank you.

The HIRSCH Family of Brooklyn, NY #general

Jack Haines <bombog@...>
 

Good afternoon,

My name is Jack Haines and I am searching for any information leading
to the final resting places of my great-great-grandfather, Herman HIRSCH,
and one of his daughters, my great-grandmother: Florina (or Florence)
HIRSCH. And I was wondering perhaps if we are related. The HIRSCH family
immigrated to Brooklyn, NY, in 1882.

In the family were Herman and his wife, Marie (or, by her European name: Mirjam),
and five of their seven children: Jacob, Bertha, Emma, Florina, and
Thekla. The missing other two children were Edward and his sister Eva
(who could be Bertha). Michel may be Mirjam's maiden name, according
to a document of marriage between one of her daughters, Emma HIRSCH,
and Harry ROSEMANN.

Herman Hirsch was born in Germany in March 1837. He was a tobacconist.
His second wife, Mirianna Hirsch (nee Strauss), was born in Luxembourg in
March 1835. She immigrated to the States before Herman did.

Herman's brother and sister, according to Herman's last will and
testament, were Lugwig HIRSCH (of St. Goarshausen, Germany) and Louise
MAYER (of Oberwesel, Rhein, Germany).

Mirianna died on April 3, 1913; while Herman died in Montreal on March
29, 1919. It has been confirmed that he was not buried in Montreal,
but that his body was shipped to Brooklyn for burial.

Florence, too, was in Montreal, when she married. It is believed that
she died in Brooklyn in her early 30s. There is no record of her
death or burial in Montreal.

Here are Herman's children and whom they married:
Jacob HIRSCH married Emilia (or Amelia) TANGER.
Emma HIRSCH married Harry ROSEMAN.
Florina HIRSCH married Benjamin MAYERS.
Thekla HIRSCH married Andrew PINAUD.
Edward HIRSCH married Henny (or Hennie) HERTZ (or HERTA).
Eva HIRSCH married Alfred E. EMBLEM.

There is no record of Bertha HIRSCH, so I'm presuming that she might
have been Eva.
If these names match up with your family, I would be more than happy
to hear >from you.

If not, then thank you for taking the time for reading my message to
you, and for relaying this information to any other Hirsch family or
researcher you may know of.

God bless you and yours,

Jack Haines

Re: Lists of Enrolled Voters: New York City Boroughs #general

The following Google Books e-books contain alphabetical lists of voters.
The lists include the voters' home addresses and their preferred political
party.
Note that they are organized by election districts but the Google search
for the book will help you find people by name.

These books exist for New York City voters covering a broad period of
time. The New York Public Library has them available on microfilm in the
genealogy room at the building on Fifth Avenue at 42nd Street in Manhattan.

Remember not everyone voted, especially in the non-presidential years, but
to vote you had to be a citizen. Voting records are a good way to confirm
that someone was a citizen if you cannot find their naturalization papers.

Translation of name - BINISMAN #general

Leslie Popelka
 

Hello,

I wonder if the name BINISMAN has a translatable meaning. I understand
that the "man" part could mean "trade". Family lore has it that the
"binis" part had something to do with selling or working with beans.

I'd appreciate any ideas.
