Offering (again) NYC Lookups #general

A. E. Jordan
 

I am going to try and do lookups this coming Thursday (Oct 13) and I will be
available to get copies of certificates at the NYC Municipal Archives as well
asat the NY Public Library.

Time will be somewhat limited this week but if anyone needs something specific
please contact me and we can discuss if I can help you.

Anyone who has availed my services in the past knows I have a sort of set
routine. On these trips I am basically working as your eyes and legs for people
who can not get to the Archives or Library themselves.

Generally what I do is transcribe certificates where you have already found the
numbers >from the online indexes or sometimes check for missing records with the
tools at the Archives. Yes I can retrieve the City Clerk marriage licenses the
ones where the indexes just went on line. As a reminder I can only access births
through 1909, marriages through 1937, City Clerk licenses through 1929 (after
that requires going to the marriage bureau); and deaths through 1948. Also I can
do natrualizations at the NY Supreme Court which is in the same building and
probates for Manhattan.

At the Library I can access the newspapers, city directories, NY Census and
various databases plus sometimes retrieve books and make copies.

I ask everyone to cover the costs including the printing of certificates (if
you want them) which is $11 each plus a little for me to help offset my travel
costs. Same for copy costs at the NY Public Library.

What I do is take the details you have and in the case of the Archives I
actually look at each certificate on the microfilm before placing the copy order
to make sure it is what you said it was. Sometimes I have to clean up errors in
transcription of numbers, research >from your info to find the correct
certificate number. etc. I pay for the certificates and then trust you to
reimburse me. I can either scan and email or mail certificates. I type notes and
email.

Please understand that generic searches when you only have vague details (like
Moshie married Sally but that's all I know) or are trying to breakdown a
brickwall that you have been working at for years requires an investment of time
beyond a quick retrieval and I can not include in this offer.

I am always happy to discuss any and all research questions involving NYC area
look ups.

I have learned that there are 4 villages with the name Szczerzec in Galicia:

1. village between Rohatyn and Podkamien/Strzeliska Nowe, on the
important road to Lwow
2. village near Sieniawa/Jaroslaw
3. hamlet at village Graboszczyce near Wadowice
4. hamlet at the village of Uscieszko near Zaleszczyki

Where to look for my Schrenzel ancestors? In all of them!

TEUTSCH from Mussbach and Venningen / Gerson Aschkenasy SITE CITE #germany

Tobias A. Kemper <kemper@...>
 

Hello,

Albert Teutsch: Geschichte der Juden der Gemeinde Venningen: Familie
Teutsch von 1590-1936. Karlsruhe 1936

gives a genealogy of the TEUTSCH family >from Mussbach and Venningen.

The pedigree sheets of this book are online at:
https://archive.org/details/lbi_reel2_test

According to this book, the Teutsch family are descendants of "Gerson
Aschkenasy", born in Debrzyn in 1590, died in Nikolsburg / Mikoluv in
1660. According to a Geni.com genealogy, he was rabbi in Nikolsburg.

Does anyone know whether this book and the genealogy are reliable?

I ask because:

a) I cannot find any other source mentioning this Gerson Aschkenasy
1590-1660. He is different >from the famous Gershon Ashkenazi, died in
Metz 1693.
http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/1966-ashkenazi-gershon

b) Jütle Jakob, wife of Avrohom bar Gershon, is said to be born in 1633.
Her son Izchak bar Avrohom, in 1680. To give birth at the age of 47
seems exceptionel. Reliable? Any comments are really appreciated.

San Francisco Bay Area Jewish Genealogical Society

San Francisco's Own Norton I, Emperor of the United States and Protector of Mexico

Monday October 10, 2016
7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Congregation Beth Am
26790 Arastradero Road Room 5/6
Los Altos Hills, California

A Jewish businessman originally >from England and South Africa, Joshua Abraham
Norton arrived in San Francisco in 1849 with $40,000, which after some shrewd
investing increased to $250,000 (about $3 million today). After losing his
fortune to a bad rice investment, Norton disappeared, returning to San
Francisco in 1859 and declaring himself Norton I, Emperor of the United States

madman, but the people of San Francisco embraced his reign. Speaker Joseph
Amster will talk about Norton's life through bringing him to life via acting
out the part.

Meetings are free and everyone interested is welcome to attend. For
