Nothing is as good as seeing the original, but there's wonderful
information in FamilySearch's new NYC marriage index
(https://familysearch.org/search/collection/2143225), in particular
parents' names.

Caveats: Not all fields are reproduced and names are sometimes
misspelled. For example, the FamilySearch entry for the 1919 marriage
of Philip JACOBS and Rose WANDER does not include this information
that's on the original: bride's and groom's street addresses and
occupations, the name and address of the rabbi, the names of
witnesses, and the address at which the wedding took place. Also,
Philip's mother's name was entered as "Jannie" rather than "Fannie" --
an understandable error, because the first letter does indeed look
like a J. I'm also finding that some records listed in the ItalianGen
index -- including ones I have copies of -- are not in the index.

Thank you to Gary Mokotoff for alerting us to FamilySearch's new NYC
birth, marriage, and death indexes, in the March 29 issue of "Nu?
What's Nu?"

Research Tip for US Social Security Death Index #general

david rafky
 

A friend recently asked me for help in obtaining a death certificate
for her father who resided in New Jersey but died in England while on vacation.
Although he held a social security card, the agency claimed no knowledge of him.
First, as we were to learn later, she believed --incorrectly-- that his
given name was Phillip, while it was actually Phil.

In any case, I recently read that simply typing a VIN (automobile vehicle
identification number) into Google's search box would reveal information
about that car, truck, etc.

So I typed the social security number into Google, and voila, the man's name
was displayed along with a quotation and reference to the social security
archive where his death was recorded!

Chrzanow, Poland Hebrew Tombstone Translation Request #general

Dear fellow JewishGen members:

I've posted a tombstone in Hebrew for which I need a translation. It
is on ViewMate at the following address:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM40661

This is a dual headstone for father and son (I believe because the son
passed away young, before the father). I would greatly appreciate any
help in translating the dual headstone in full.

Some additional information that may or may not assist with
translation: the deceased are direct descendants of two very
well-respected rabbis >from Chzarnow, Poland.

Thank you in advance.

Re: Petri KMIEC and Ferdinand BEDNARSKI #romania

deborah tremblay <debrose60@...>
 

Hello there,

I am presently diligently researching to find other family members
of my great-great-grandfather, Petri KMIEC. He was probably born
around 1845 in either Romania, or somewhere in the eastern part of
the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

What I do know for certain is that he had a child, my great-grandmother,
Paulina KMIEC (married name: BEDNARSKA). She was born in 1879 in Romania
and died in 1940 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

I have not found any information as to whether Petri had other children,
neither have I found a certain link as to the name of his wife, of their
birth/baptismal date or of both parents siblings or date and place death.
I know that his grandchildren were born in Romania before WWI. There was
an interesting addition written after his surname on the Birth/Baptismal
Certificate of one of his granddaughters. It reads, Petri KMIEC vel
CHMEDA. The document is >from a Cernauti Roman Catholic Church in
Romania for the year 1906. Wondering if those KMIECS honourably mentioned
as Rescuersa on Yad Vashem's ˜Righteous Among the Nation's" list, namely,
Piotr and his wife, Anna, are related to my family as well.

Also, needed is any information regarding either Ferdinand BEDNARSKI,
born in 1868, Susice, Hungarian Empire/ Inter war period, died in 1958,
Winnipeg, Manitoba. He was the spouse of the above Paulina KMIEC. Any
records about this man or his wife for the time period before they
immigrated to Canada (around 1920) would be appreciated very much.
Their children were: Anna CZEPIL, Eugenja SHOTROPA, Leontina SATO,
Maria SOLTYS, Elisabeth PENKOW and Wanda DICKIE.
Thank you,
