JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen ViewMate translation request - Yiddish (Brooklyn, NY newspaper ad) #general

Rick Luftglass <rluftglass@...>
 

Hi,

I've posted a small newspaper ad in Yiddish for which I need a translation.
It's by my great grandfather, Levi/Levy/Lavy/Lieb/Leibu DOLMATCH.

According to censuses and naturalization forms, he seems to have been
variously a meat inspector and a teacher. Someone told me that this appears
to be an ad for a scribe, but they weren't sure.

Can you provide a word-for-word translation?

It is on ViewMate at the following address ...
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM33326

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Many thanks in advance.

Re: Information about deportation to Kazakhstan #general

davestra@ymail.com <davestra@...>
 

You may find more about this in the Lutsk Yizkor Book. Hopefully this is the
right one.

http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Lutsk1/Lutsk1.html

From: Mikael Kanski <kanski@...>
On the Lutsk (Luck) city page on Wikipedia you can read that in 1939
"[a]pproximately 7,000 of the city's inhabitants (mostly Poles) were
deported in cattle trucks to Kazakhstan[...]".

Is there any kind of documentation of this mass deportation to Kazakhstan?...

Lisa Cohn
 

Hello,
I've posted the back of a few old family photos on Viewmate.
Most look like Yiddish. A couple look like Romanian to me, might be Russian.
I believe they're >from the Romanian side of the family.
I'd very much appreciate translations.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: US-Born Women Who Married "Foreigners" Lost Their Citizenship--Senate Resolution Apologizes For 1907 Law #general

Paul Silverstone
 

This situation did not exist only in the United States. My mother, born
in Canada, lost her Canadian citizenship when she married my US-born
father in 1930. As they did not move to the US until 1939, it was only
in 1942 when she could naturalize in the US.

Fran, Maria

There's not always logic in the relationship between English/Yiddish/Hebrew
names. Sometimes there's no connection at all. We can only go by the amount
of examples we see, unless there's a direct translation.

Chaim is often Hyman in English. Can't see any reason for it to be Jacob
(in Hebrew, Yaakov, in Yiddish, often Yankel).

Only thing is people often had 'double' names e.g., Chaim Yaakov ben XX,
yet were known simply as Yankel.

My own Hebrew names is Chaim Levi ben Yaakov

It's not easy!

viewmate documents in German- military records ViewMate #germany

Lin <lin2@...>
 

Hi GerSIGers,
I posted these two viewmate documents which are military records for my
grandfather's first cousin (and very close friend) Max HERZ. Max fought
for Germany in WW1 and was injured badly and probably taken prisoner in
France. He was born in Nuernberg (Nuremberg) Germany.=20

I think they may be two parts of the same document. Both are short.

I can figure out some of this, but his granddaughter Judy and I would
like a complete translation. thank you so much.

German translator recommendation needed #germany

I have a Der Stuermer Article >from 1936 about a SIMONS relative from

I tried using Google translate but too many words did not translate.
Can someone recommend a (professional) translator? Please let me know.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Family match help and DNA - COHEN #general

Scott Ehrlich <scott@...>
 

I have DNA tested with the majors - 23andme, ancestry, and
familytreedna. I have found familytreedna the most useful and helpful
and inviting for matches to communicate and connected with each other.

I have taken the Autosomal test with all three, and added the Y-DNA to
familytreedna.com.

My mother, Margery Cohen, Ehrlich, has also tested with FamilyTreeDNA.
She and I have autosomal results, and she is awaiting her mtDNA
results >from FamilyTreeDNA. Her gedmatch.com ID is F327640.

I am now trying to find connections to my COHEN line somehow. My mom
is a COHEN/NEWMAN and she and I are working hand-in-hand, and she has
tested.

But I want to isolate the COHEN line for some answers and currently
have no other people I can reach out to on the COHEN side who will
test.

If you have tested with any of the majors, please see if we are a match.

I am also on gedmatch.com - F316712.

Thanks.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: Searching for my Grandfather's birth records #general

A. E. Jordan
 

From: Scott Ehrlich <scott@...>
Any other ideas of where his birth may have been recorded, outside of
census records which are not official for this purpose and are only 10
years at a time?
This is a common problem in New York City too. They estimate a quarter
or more of all births went unrecorded in the early 1900s/late 1800s.

Besides the obvious using alternate spellings and widening the search
parameters the next thing is to look for delayed reporting. At least
in New York we have files of people who later in life filed for birth
certificates. They are separate files >from the original birth records
and show up with a letter S or D in the indexes. Most common was for
school or the military or a passport they filed for a copy of the birth
certificate.

Checking any military records is a good place to see he person recorded
their birth date or their Social Security application. I do not know
when Social Security started but in modern days you need to show your
birth certificate to file for Social Security. Now I think babies
actually get there number when they are born.

Passport applications would be another good place to look for a person
swearing to their details of birth. Of course that is only if they
traveled overseas and got a passport.

Otherwise it is very possible for a person to go about their life
without ever needing to prove the details of their birth.
