Miryam DISTENFELD #romania

sharon yampell
 

My great grandmother Esther had three sisters and one brother and they grew
up in around Dorna Vatra! Their parents were Akiva DISTENFELD and Brane
LEINBERG(ER). Her youngest sister was Miryam and she was born on 6/25/1890.


I am looking for Miryam's first husband; during their marriage, they owned
an inn with one of the beautiful baths of that region. They later divorced
and somehow he was able to retain ownership of the inn. I am looking for his
name, his date of birth, date of their marriage and when he died. I am also
looking for where these events took place.

I do know she hid during WW2 but I don't know where and I am not sure where
to look for her because she may have been using her first husband's last name!
I do know she eventually went to Israel because she wanted to go to the US but
the quotas had been met. She arrived in April of 1951. She met and later
married Israel (Taubenfeld) Ben HANINA and lived in Hod-Hasharon, Israel.
While in Israel, she was informed that her number had been called and she could
go to the US if she wanted; she opted to stay in Israel and died on Mar 01,
1968 in Hod-Hasharon.

Can somewhere help me find her the records for her first marriage and where
she may have hidden during the war?

ViewMate translation request - Hebrew or Yiddish? #general

Robyn Dryen
 

Dear Genners

I've posted a document extract on Viewmate at the following address
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM52183. The
signature is in either Hebrew or Yiddish and it is for this that I
need a translation.

The document is a legal contract between a man known in Australia as
Solomon Solomons, and his lawyers. Solomon signed his name using
either Hebrew or Yiddish characters which do not seem to make much
sense as a name. I would be very grateful for any
translation/interpretation. The year was 1823.

Offering (Again) Lookups in NYC #general

A. E. Jordan
 

I am starting to compile request for another research trip to New York City
visiting the Municipal Archives and the NY Public Library. It is possible
this Thursday but more likely early next week.

I will be available to get copies of certificates at the NYC Municipal
Archives as well as at the NY Public Library.

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 went on line a few months ago and now up to 1950 should be available
at the Archives.

As a reminder I can only access births through 1909, marriages through 1937,
City Clerk licenses through 1950 (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.
