(UK) Government Accepts Amendment on Deregulation Bill Allowing Other than Certified Copies of B,M.D Certificates #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The deregulation bill before the (UK) House of Lords has been agreed to be
amended to allow for publication about information on birth, marriage and
death certificates in England and Wales to be issued in a manner other than
certified copies. This will allow the government to consult on the best way
to bring changes to how records are accessed. The bill, if passed as
proposed, will provide the Secretary of State to promulgate regulations to
define how a person may access the records, the charges that may be imposed,
how the record may be formatted and the type of record that may be issued.
This could mean online records for older records (similar to systems
currently enjoyed by Scotland and Northern Ireland) and the introduction of
plain paper extracts to be offered to those who do not need a watermarked
certificate. The bill recognizes that these changes will not occur
immediately and a full analysis of implementation options will be done. It
is a major change as it lifts the legislative restrictions in these areas
which has hampered past attempts to change the system. These changes will
require IT changes and that means some time once the bill is finally passed.
Please be patient.

These changes were a result of the efforts by the Society of Genealogists.
This is a great example of how genealogists can influence actions. To read

The government tried to do this once before in 1983, but General Elections
were called and this type of legislation was failed to be implemented due to
the election. A General Election is expected on May 7, 2015 and it is
hoped that the current bill does not have a similar fate.

Thank you to Peter Calver and the LostCousins Newsletter for alerting us to

Which town of Dobra could it be? #general

Rowena Zylali
 

Which Town of Dobra could it be?

On my 2x great grandmother?s Lena COHN EHRLICH LIEBERMAN's death certificate,
the place name of DUBRA is written as her place of birth. Every record says
she arrived in the U.S. in 1880, and the only two possible passenger
lists, have Germany / Bausle, Germany as originating town, which may be her
husband's Chiam>Herman LIEBERMAN (if they are theirs at all).

On the records that I can find for her, "Russia-Pol" is listed as her birthplace.
These include her children's birth records in the late 1880s and early 1890s.
In addition, The 1915 NY State Census lists Germany, the 1920 Federal Census
lists Hungary,Russia, Russia-Pol (for her mother, father, and herself), 1925
Russia, 1930 Germany, and when she dies in 1933, it is Russia again. Based on
the emigration date of 1880, and all
the border changes, which Dobra do you think it most likely is?

Thank you,

Re: Are there legal directories for Prussia? #germany

Roger Lustig
 

A quick search on "amtsblatt justizrat preussen" brings up an Prussian
Amtsblatt (legal gazette) >from the Bromberg district (northern/eastern
Posen province) for 1839, which lists 6 such appointments to various
levels, >from Director to Assessor.

Note that Fraktur isn't the easiest to scan, so individual surnames may
get mangled, i.e., one may have to go through the gazettes "by hand."
Fortunately, they tend to have annual indexes.

(Note also that this particular gazette is side-by-side bilingual,
German and Polish. I think that practice lasted until 1848.)

How about when someone attained the level Justizrat? Would that

ViewMate translation request - German #germany

Barbara Algaze
 

I've posted a vital record in Polish for which I need a translation. It is
a death certificate for my gggrandfather, Salomon WOLFHEIM, who died 26
April 1878 in Loebau, West Prussia (now Lubawa, Poland). Because of the
size of the record, I have posted the document in two parts: the right side
of the document VM37952 and the left side of the document VM 37953.

They can be found on ViewMate at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM37952
and http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM37953

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

There is a lot of writing and I am really curious as to what it says, but
mainly I would like to know the names of his parents and/or any other
relatives. If it would help, I could send a copy of the document privately
to anyone who might be able to help with this translation.

Thank you very much.
