The Holon cemetery is in the city of Holon, which is near Tel
Aviv. The entire cemetery has been photographed and the pictures
are available on BillionGraves (for free!). Only about a fourth
of the stones has been transcribed so far.

(US-RI) Bill Introduced Proposed to Provide Free Access to Death and Marriage Certificates #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

A bill has been introduced in Rhode Island that if enacted will change the
current Vital Records Law (Section 23-3-23). Provisions of the bill would
do the following:

The public is allowed to examine and copy death and marriage certificates
filed with the Department of Health. Social Security numbers will be
redacted prior to inspection. The proposed law prohibits the department of
health and municipalities >from charging for examination of these records,
but usual per page charges apply for making copies.

Existing provisions that are being recommended to be changed include:
1. A person could not inspect, copy or disclose information in vital
records except if authorized by regulation or in this bill.
2. It contains a 100 year embargo for birth records, however, the
records will be open for research by any member of an incorporated genealogy
society. It limits to the specific family members, and others including
members of genealogical societies the ability to examine the original or
copy of a birth certificate or record. There is an appeals process if a
records custodian refuses to permit inspection or copying of records.
3. The public is allowed to examine and copy and death and marriage
certificates filed with the Department of Health. Social Security numbers
will be redacted prior to inspection. The proposed law prohibits the
department of health and municipalities >from charging for examination of
these records, but usual per page charges apply for making copies .

Shanghai resources #general

Diana da Costa
 

Hello,

I have hit a large brick wall. I am researching Semon DITTMAN (originally
named Simeon DITTMANN and subsequently Simon) who was born in New York City
on June 28th 1858. Through passport applications and shipping records, I
have established that he left the US in 1895 and I have no evidence so far
that he ever returned. He lived in South Africa until 1906 when he turns up
in Shanghai and the last record I have found was a passport application to
take a holiday in Japan in 1918 after which the trail goes cold. I have
found no record that Semon died in the US and so therefore have drawn the
inference that he probably died in Shanghai or possibly whilst holidaying in
Japan.

Question: is there a data-base or place to where I can send my query in
Shanghai (where Semon claimed to be his permanent home) or possibly Japan.
I have researched in all the usual archival resources but just cannot find
an address or website which I can approach to find out about the remainder
of Semon's life and death. All suggestions gratefully received!

I have also circulated this query to the GERSIG and Early American lists as
Semon's parents (Eduard DITTMANN and Charlotte ROSENFELD) were born in
Bavaria but died in the US, in case someone else is also researching this
DITTMANN family.

Researches include ARNSTEIN, BACH, BASS, BERLIN, COHN, DITTMANN, FLACHFELD,

Re: The "Conscriptio Judaeorum" - where to find it, and what years are available #hungary

To those interested:

The best compilation about preserved census and census-like material
from the 18-19th centuries for the Kingdom of Hungary that I have
found was written in 2011 by researchers at the Hungarian Demographic
Research Institute. You can find it at the link below:

http://www.demogr.mpg.de/papers/working/wp-2011-020.pdf

I was referred to this article when I inquired at the KÃœzponti
Statisztikai Hivatal KÜnyvtår (Library of the Hungarian Central
Statistical Office), which is the organization that has been carrying
out the censuses beginning in 1869 until the present.

Best,
Kellie Scherbel Hale

I am in contact with a family whose ancestor is >from Miskolc (they spell the
name as Zeisler).

Contact me in a private message if you have more info on the Czeisler family

Dear Siggers,

Looking for members of the Weiss family of Miskolc, including Zoltan
Czeisler, born 1902 in or around Miskolc, died 7.6.1982 in Israel. His
mother was probably a Weiss, sister to Bertha Grunwald nee Weiss, born
1865
in Hejokeresztur to Salamon Weiss (Weisz) and Rozalia Brunner. I'm also
looking for any of Bertha's siblings and their own descendants, which to
date are unknown to me.


Best Regards
Shaul Sharoni,
