Help Requested: Deciphering Chelm Land document & translation #general

Paula & David
 

Hello, I am a relative novice genealogist, who "lucked out" when I
found a document on the JRI website, listing land owners in Chelm before
WWII. I found this document at:
www.jewish-chelm.org/sites/default/files/pdf. This is the Chlemer
Organization of Israel website. Look for the Jewish Property LIst on
the left side.

On page 13 of this document are the names of my maternal GGF, and one
of his sons. , the family last name is FLAKSMAN, first names Sani and
Hersc (or Hersz). They can be found next to number 15a in the second
column. I do not recognize the third name with theirs as a family
member. though, he might have married into the family.

On page 11 of the document is also a listing for a Herc(z?) Flacksman
(different last name spelling) at number 148 in the second column. I
am not sure if the latter is a mis-spelling, or the same person in the
first page.

Can anyone help me understand the writing at the top of the columns, and
how that might enable me to locate where this land is located?
My mother, who came to the US as a very young girl, recalled staying in
the 1920's on the "farm" of her grandfather while waiting for her
father to bring the family to the US, so locating this property is very
meaningful to me. (Though I do realize it is likely no longer a farm).

Thanks very much for any help or suggestions on how I might proceed to
decipher this.

Paula Solomon, Boston, MA area--hoping to meet some of you at the conference
next month!

researching: FLAKSMAN, Chelm, Swierze, and possibly Warsaw, Poland,
WAXMAN, Chelm, Poland and Kamen, Belorus.
also SHULMAN, (probably) Swierze.

Searching for Laura BADIO - in Birmingham, UK ??? #unitedkingdom

davidlewin@...
 

Can you possibly help please?

The Austrian Parliament has passed a law by which Nazi-era looted art which is today held in Austrian
Institutions, must be returned to their former owners where these can be identified. They failed to legislate,
however, who should do the searching, and who should pay for it.  So, when the Vienna Jewish Community
asked my help, I readily volunteered.

I am writing to you in the hope of spreading the details of the search in Birmingham, England, in the hope
of finding some memories of what really is a needle in the haystack.

BADIO is a very rare surname â?? and I am searching for the legal heir of Laura BADIO.

Her sister Bianca BADIO was born on April 16, 1893 in Vienna and died on 29th Nov 1971 in Birmingham,
England.

Laura BADIO was born on April 10, 1894 in Vienna.  They had
escaped Vienna in 1939 and found refuge in Birmingham.

In 1961 Bianca BADIO and her sister Laura Badio lived at 48 Alcester Road, Moseley - Birmingham 13,

I have the death certificate and the Probate records of Bianca BADIO who died at the Tamworth Residential Home on 29 Nov 1971.  They both point to Laura as the surviving family member.

I have so far found no trace of Laura BADIO - and cannot get anyone at Birmingham City Council to respond to my requests for help.

Have you any suggestion of how I might proceed?
Can they be found in the Birmingham cemeteries?
Are there Brommies on this list?

Is there any contact still possible with Mary WALSH who notified the death and arranged for the cremation
of Bianca?  She must have been an official at the Tamworth Residential Home.

I would be most grateful for any information and guidance you can give about this search.

Thank you and be well

Where to find information while visiting Riga #general

Susan Bromberg <skbromberg@...>
 

I am going to be traveling >from the US to Riga in about 10 days (July
30-Aug 2) My grandparents were born in Riga and left for the US at the
turn of the last century when they were young children. I have a rather
detailed genealogy of my grandmother's family, beginning with her grandparents,
but I know very little of my grandfather's family. My grandfather's parents
died when he was very young and they never immigrated to America, so I assume
they died in Riga. I am wondering what, if anything, I could find out about
my grandmother's or grandfather's family in Riga that I could not get
on the web. My grandmother's parents' surnames were Glazer and Yankelovich.
My grandfather's surname was Kahn.


Thank you.

Re: NY Records #general

Mary D. Taffet <mdtaffet@...>
 

Jeanne,

I tried to respond directly to you, but got an auto-reply asking me to
verify that I am a real person. As a matter of policy, I don't do that.
So I'm responding to the list instead.

What I tried to tell you directly/privately is that, while I haven't
followed the entire thread, actual certificates >from NYC are in fact
available on FHL films. If they weren't, I wouldn't have been able to
identify the death certificates for two of my husbands
great-grandparents, who both died in NYC boroughs, while I was at the
FHL library in Salt Lake. What I saw on the films that I viewed were
images of actual certificates as opposed to indexes. The names were too
common for the indexes alone to be of much use to me.

COHEN and/or KATZ: Providence, Rhode Island #general

I normally wouldn't post a message like this, but Rhode Island is a
pretty small area so I thought I'd give it a try:

I am looking for descedants of a COHEN family >from Providence, Rhode
Island: Benjamin Simon COHEN (b1893) married Sophia KATZ in 1914. By
1940 they had two children: Howard and Madeline.

Sophia was the daughter of Mendal and Sadie KATZ also of Providence.
Their other children were: Annie (1899), Louis (1901), Celia (1909) and
Irving.

Hope this rings a bell with someone.

Re: How to find Film/File numbers? #general

Rachel Bernstein asked:
I am familiar with searching the (IGG) Italian Genealogy Group's DataBase
for vital records.
I have found records for Marriages & Deaths but they only have
certificate numbers.
How do I find the Film/File numbers?
If you wish to order records >from the NYC Municipal Archives, the
information in the IGG databases is sufficient. The links on the IGG
webpage to the NYC Municipal Archives do not appear to be working.
Instead go to:
http://www.nyc.gov/html/records/html/archives/geneology.shtml
You may order online, if you wish.

If your intent is to order the records >from the Family History
Library, I suggest looking at my January 2013 blog post tutorial on
the subject. There I was searching for a naturalization record, but
one need only look for vital records instead when one gets to the
correct NYC locale in the film database.

http://extrayad.blogspot.com/2012/10/teaching-us-to-fiche.html

I realize that there are no FamilySearch Libraries/Centers (whatever
they are calling them now) in Israel, but one may order images of
individual records for free by sending them an email with detailed
film and record information. Check out the order information on their
photoduplication wiki page:
https://familysearch.org/learn/wiki/en/Photoduplication_Services

Another method of locating the film number is to go to
Warren Blatt's InfoFile:
"New York City Birth, Marriage and Death Records" on JewishGen:
http://www.jewishgen.org/infofiles/nycv-lds.html
Scroll down to locate the section on FHL films.
Click on the appropriate link and one will be taken to the
correct FamilySearch.org page. Use the button in the upper right
to see details on the film numbers in each series.
