Re: Philadelphia Naturalization Records #general

From: Julia Lombardo<julialombardo@optimum.net>
I was wondering if anyone has experience searching for Naturalization
Records in Philadelphia.
snip...

I am not familiar with Philadelphia, but I am familiar with Chicago.
First, I never trust the immigration date in a census record.
It may be correct, but I believe that the indices (if any) have
the naturalization date, not the immigration date. And the immigration
data contained in the naturalization papers might not be accurate.
The immigration data for my ggf in his naturalization papers give the
month and year that he arrived at Ellis Island, but I have not found
his ship manifest. He might have arrived in the US via Canada.

In Chicago, there is an index to naturalizations. Up to a certain
year, naturalizations could take place in any court - local, county,
or federal. If federal, then the local National Archives branch would
have the records. If local or county, then the court archives would
have the records. In Chicago, the records would either be at the
Chicago NARA or the Cook County Archives. I assume a similar situation
occurs in the Philadelphia area.

Jewish orphanage class picture on ViewMate #general

Marlene Dobrin <dobrins@...>
 

My mother's father Samuel Rief left for America about 1912 and her
mother Tirtza died about 1918. They came >from Seduva Lithuania but the
towns of Ahbel,Lithuania,Krakes Lithuania, Ostrechan/Astrakhan, Russia
on the Volga, Antylipt and Sarotof, Russia may have some meaning to this
picture. It is a picture of the Jewish orphanage or child care school
that took in my mother and her sister and brother, schooled them, fed
them and provided shelter. This is all I know about this picture. I am
hoping someone has some clue or familiarization with this orphanage or
maybe even recognizes some faces in the picture. My mother finally felt
safe and had fond memories of this wonderful place. Prior to her being
there all she remembers is moving around the country. I'm hoping to
discover a bit more information about this period in my mother's life.

ViewMate: Uniform Identification Request #general

Dale Friedman
 

I have posted a photo in ViewMate of a man >from the town of Rohatyn in
Galicia (in modern day Ukraine.) The photo was probably taken around
1915 to 1925.

I would like to know if the man is wearing a military uniform
(Austrian-Hungarian army?) or is it perhaps a police or fire brigade
uniform or some other type of uniform?

If you can help me identify the type of uniform, I would very much
appreciate it.

It is in ViewMate at the following address:

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Thank you in advance for any help you might provide.
