(US-NYC) FamilySearch Releases 1890 New York City Police Census #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Those with New York City roots will enjoy the recently released index of the
1890 New York City Policy Census on FamilySearch. The release includes 87
percent of the people recorded in the census. The index covers the 894 of
the original 1008 volumes as 114 volumes have been lost. It includes
1,479,855 names in the census. This is especially important as the 1890
Federal Census was destroyed and this can be used for genealogical research
in place of the destroyed census-albeit with less information.

It is called the "Police Census" as the police acted as enumerators. New
York City government did not believe that all of the city's inhabitants had
been enumerated in the 1890 federal census. The census capture an
additional 13 percent of New York City residents. What is included are name,
gender, age, assembly district, and election district.

To search the index go to:
https://familysearch.org/search/collection/2381996. There are no images of
the actual records. To see the actual census you will need to go to a
library or Family History Center that has the collection. The information
on the FamilySearch index includes the Family History Library microfilm number.

FamilySearch wiki has helpful information on how to search and what you will
find on this new digitized collection. See;
https://familysearch.org/wiki/en/New_York,_New_York_City,_Police_Census,_1890_(FamilySearch_Historical_Records)
(MODERATOR: https://tinyurl.com/zcl486m )
Access to the index and all records on FamilySearch are free.

Remember that New York City was not consolidated until 1898. Therefore, not
all 5 boroughs as we know them today are included in the 1890 census. In
1890 it was Manhattan and most of the Bronx as we know it today. In 1898 the
east Bronx, Kings County (Brooklyn), Queens and Richmond (Staten Island)
consolidated with Manhattan and the Bronx to form The City of New York.

Ira Leviton said: "Certificates of stillbirths were started in the
1930s (I believe the year was 1938, but it may have been a little earlier)."

My cousin found the burial certificate for my aunt who was stillborn in 1916 in
Manhattan. She was listed as "baby Slatas."

Though I was unable to find a copy of the record just now, I believe it was >from
the cemetery. She was buried at Mt. Richmond Cemetery by a landsmannschaft.

Could BROD and BROTMAN be the same name? #general

Amy B Cohen
 

I am hoping someone can help me sort this one out. I have been researching my
great-grandparents and their families. My great-grandfather, Joseph BROTMAN, and
my great-grandmother Bessie came >from Tarnobrzeg, Poland, to the US in 1889 and
1891, respectively. After researching them for years, I've found no records at all
from Tarnobrzeg. All I have are US records and ship manifests. Family lore says
that Bessie was Joseph's cousin and that the family pushed her to marry after his
first wife died and left him with four children. All of those children plus the
five that Joseph and Bessie had together all ended up in the US. The US records
sometimes use the name BROD and sometimes BROTMAN for Bessie's birth name . I
recently discovered a relative who is probably Bessie's sister Sarah. Her US
records also sometimes say her birth name was BROD and sometimes say BROTMAN.

The ship manifest that I believe lists my great-grandfather Joseph BROTMAN has his
name as Yossel BROD, so even he may have been using both names. So could BROD and
BROTMAN be the same name? Or were the records in the US just based on family
members confusing the two surnames?

Thanks for any insights you might be able to offer.

Stillborns #germany

Renate Rosenau <RenateRosenau@...>
 

Someone asked: Were there birth/death records kept for stillborns and/or
babies who died soon after birth? My great grandparents, Richard LANGER and
Fannie Peterfreund, lost 2-3 babies between 1893-1895. I have found their
other 8 children - including one who only lived for 11 months.

It depends of the region. For instance in Rheinhessen and Pfalz/Palatinate,
Germany, regions on the left border of the Rhine that had belonged to France
from 1892 to 1814, stillborns were registered with a birth- and a death
certificate >from summer 1798 onwards when civic registration was introduced.
