runaway marriage 1900-1920 mid-Atlantic states #general

Natalie & Ernie Hartz
 

Steve Pickholtz asked where a person with NJ and PA ties might have gone to
be married 1900-1920.

In 1910, my maternal grandparents went to Providence RI to be married (civil
ceremony) because according to NY law they were too closely related to be
married in NY. Grandma always told me they were cousins, but when my uncle
started the family tree he discovered that Grandpa was her half uncle, we
think. It appears as if Grandma's mother was Grandpa's half sister. Hard to
grasp, I know.

Why Providence RI? Who knows? Maybe it was the closest and easiest state to
get to by train. I'm sure they were also married in a religious ceremony by
her father, who was licensed to perform marriages in NY (he also performed
my parent's religious ceremony), but the marriage record for my grandparents
is definitely listed in Providence.

Additions to IGRA's Databases #general

IGRA released the first installment of information regarding the
Illegal Immigration period to Israel. The information comes >from three
sources:

Atlit Database Index - In cooperation with "Bintivey Ha'apala"
Clandestine Jewish Immigration Information and Research Center in
Memory of Admiral Mordechai (Moka) Limon we are posting a partial
index of their database. Their databases span >from the late 1930's
through a few years after the recognition of the State of Israel.

Deportation Lists 1939 - This database is composed of "duplicate"
lists found in a file of the British Police in the Israel State
Archives. It contains lists of people who were on 13 ships that were
captured in 1939. The database includes the names of 6,282.

The Illegal Immigrants 1939 -1948 - The lists come >from a variety of
places - most are Jewish Agency offices, some elsewhere. All are
currently in the Central Zionist Archives. Some lists are in English
and some lists are in Hebrew, therefore there will be two databases
depending on the language of the original documents. This will be an
ongoing project over many years, with updates of additional names to
the database.

Please understand that each document has different kinds of
information available. We are working to quickly fix a problem where
the name of the Ship is not showing on the result page.

With these additions there are now over 440,000 lines of data
available!

JGS Conejo Valley and Ventura County May 3 Meeting on You Found the Records--Now What? #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County
(JGSCV) will hold a general meeting, co-sponsored with Temple Adat Elohim,
on Sunday, May 3, 2015 1:30-3:30 PM at Temple Adat Elohim 2420 E. Hillcrest
Drive, Thousand Oaks, CA.

The program: You Found the Records- Now What? This is important for people
who do genealogy as not all records are accurate. for example I have 7
different birth dates spanning 15 years for my maternal grandfather-which
one is correct and why? JGSCV member Marion Werle will be giving the
presentation.

This interactive presentation will focus on how to analyze the records you
find and how to make the case to prove identities, ages, residence and other
facts about your ancestors. Marion will discuss how to analyze record types
(original, derivative and authored), record information (primary, secondary
and indeterminate) and evidence (direct, indirect and negative), and how to
weight the reliability of the documents you find based on these criteria.
Together we will analyze examples of actual records and show how to ask the
right questions to help us create sound genealogical research.

Speaker: Marion Werle began her family history research over 20 years ago,
researching family >from Lithuania, Latvia and Belarus, who settled in both
the US and Canada. She has been on the boards of directors of JGSCV and
JGSLA, and is a past president of the Latvia SIG. After making the same
beginner's mistakes that we all do, she is now focused on applying accepted
genealogical research standards to her research. She has master's degrees in
both European History and Library Science >from UCLA.

Schmoozing Corner:
Founding member Werner Frank will be facilitating the schmoozing corner
starting at 1:10PM. The Schmoozing Corner is available if you would like
individual insights for your genealogical pursuits >from an experienced JGSCV
member 20 minutes before each meeting.

Traveling Library
This will be our second month of experimenting with bringing a limited
number of our traveling library books-Category A only. The traveling library
comes to each of our meetings and is available starting 30 minutes before
the beginning of the meeting. A list of our permanent and traveling library
is included on our website: www.jgscv.org look under library.

The Jewish Genealogical Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County is
dedicated to sharing genealogical information, techniques and research tools
with anyone interested in Jewish genealogy and family history. There is no
charge to attend the meeting. Anyone may join JGSCV. Dues are $25 for a
single and $30 for a family defined as two people living in the same
household. Annual dues paid now are good through December 2015. Forms are
available at the meeting, and on the JGSCV website-under Membership .

Hi,

Thanks.

It's in former Saros. I had already found the Hungarian name, which
gets zero hits in the FS Catalog. The person whose birth rec. I am
looking for later lived in nearby Presov, and he's the first >from the
family born here in 1904 - the previous in faraway Mezokeresztes in
Borsod, so while I am sure I can get 1869 info in one of the Zsido
sub-directories in the Saros Census, it's not relevant.

Moderator: Have you checked using the Hungarian name? The place
you're seeking is
probably Komloskeresztes in Szepes megye.


Re: BECK family and Agarev, Somogy #hungary

bogardi.com has 2 different gazetteers of "greater hungary", the
1882, and the 1913.

agare'v does not appear in the 1913, but on the somogy megye page, it
is listed as ha'romfa-agare'v, in the nagy-ata'di district. going
back to the 1913 gazetteer, ha'romfa occurs exactly once, in the
nagy-ata'di district of somogy, so it's probably the place that
you're looking for, which was merged into the larger place.
bogardi.com shows it as being in the southwest of hungary.

the jewishgen gazetteer does not show haromfa as having a jewish
community, and the nearest ones would be babocsa just to the south
(127 jews in 1880), and nagyatad just north (371 jews).

When I do an internet search for Agarev, I get virtually nothing,
except for the name linked with Haromfa for some tourist sites. I
did find Haromfa in Google Maps, though I don't know if this is the
same as Agarev or not.
