Re: If not married in NYC, where? #general

Judith Singer
 

Re: If not married in NYC, where?

Briefly, anywhere, especially anywhere in the New York metropolitan
area or even beyond where they had friends or relatives. My parents
were married in Amenia, NY, about 85 miles >from their homes in NYC,
because they went to visit friends who lived in Putnam County and who
decided it was time my father did something with the marriage license
he had obtained. The nearest rabbi the friends could find was in
Amenia. If I had not heard this as part of family lore, it would never
have occurred to me that my parents would be married so far >from home.
At least my father had obtained a NYC marriage license, so I was able
to find a record of that.

You would have to consider not just upstate NY but also portions of
NJ, Connecticut, and even Massachusetts and Pennsylvania if the couple
had friends or relatives out of town.

Furthermore, it could have been a common-law marriage entered into
without benefit of a government-issued marriage license. These were
not legal in NY State after 1938, but the state continued to recognize
common-law marriages made before that date.

Good luck - Judith Singer

his family resided after the war but I don't have much info on their

or place to get documents related to family members.

Thank you,

Reclaim The Records wins third lawsuit; NYC marriage index for 1996-2017 now online, searchable, downloadable, and ***Free*** #general

Asparagirl
 

The non-profit records access activist group Reclaim The Records is
proud to announce that we've just won a settlement of our third
Freedom of Information lawsuit, fighting for the return of important
genealogical record sets to the public. We're announcing the
first-ever public copy of the New York City marriage license index for
1996-2017, about 1.5 million records. It's now available online for
free, searchable and downloadable.

Oh, and we also won the reimbursement of our attorneys fees, because
we like making it clear to government agencies that ignoring the
Freedom of Information law has consequences. :-)

Here's the short version of this story: we successfully fought the New
York City government for nine months to get the first-ever public copy
of the 1996-2017 New York City marriage license index. It's about 1.5
million records, which is about 3.1 million names. And you can now
search this data, or even download it or reuse it, totally free. It's
in the public domain, no copyright. This 1996-2017 data is the
continuation of the 1908-1929 and 1930-1995 data sets we won in two
previous lawsuits >from the NYC Municipal Archives and the NYC Clerk's
Office, respectively.

Here's the longer and more detailed version of this story, with links
to the new data, and public copies of our original FOIL request and
all our legal paperwork (appeal, "Article 78" lawsuit, and stipulation
of settlement):

https://www.reclaimtherecords.org/records-request/11/

As this is a Jewish genealogy e-mail list, it seems appropriate to
mention that a big percentage of this new data is potentially relevant
to our research. According to that venerable source of knowledge
Wikipedia, as of 2012 there were slightly over one million Jews living
within New York City and over two million in the greater New York
metro area, the second largest Jewish community worldwide after Tel
Aviv.

But even if you don't have any NYC roots or relatives, it's awfully
nice to know that genealogists really can successfully fight back
against the wrongful withholding of public records by government
agencies. Reclaim The Records likes to prove that you really can fight
city hall, and win. And we're expanding our work into more states, and
will be tackling our first big federal FOIA requests (and possibly
FOIA lawsuits) later this year, for data sets that have tens of
millions of records.

Reclaim The Records will have even more exciting news to announce in
the very near future: two more big records wins to announce >from two
different states (millions of records in each of them!), and one new
Freedom of Information lawsuit against a different government agency
that's being filed later this month. Maybe even two lawsuits, we'll
see. :-)

For more information on Reclaim The Records, check out our website:
https://www.reclaimtherecords.org/

- Brooke Schreier Ganz
Mill Valley, California (but still a New Yorker at heart)
President and Founder of Reclaim The Records

PS - And on a personal note, I got married in NYC in 2003, so it was
pretty cool to finally reclaim my own record in this data!

Re: Seeking grave of Lisette GAERTNER (geb. Cahn) near Kassel #germany

A hidden place for finding information about Jewish cemeteries are the
Gatermann films. Those concerning Hessen were published on the website
of the Hessisches Hauptstaatsarchiv Wiesbaden
https://arcinsys.hessen.de. There you find the inscriptions of the
cemetery in Wolfhagen west of Kassel: https://tinyurl.com/ybvxf2db
Just in time in July 1938, they were copied by a Rabbi. There I could
not discover a person called Lisette Gaertner geb. Cahn.
