Naturalization papers and change of name in the UK - the process #general

Jacqueline DAVIS <jdavis318@...>
 

I would like to thank everyone who replied and sent suggestions re finding
Naturalization papers. I will keep looking for the Yudelevitch side of the
family.

The problem is with my grandfather (Mark DAVIS) - he arrived in the UK
around 1900 and never took out papers until 1919, after he had served in the
Russian Labour Corps in World War 1. Looking at his papers there are no
questions regarding previous name and he gave his parents names as Solomon
DAVIS (deceased), and Cheva DAVIS (in Russia).

It has been really interesting following all the replies, thank you again.

Calarasi Cemetery and Synagogue Project #general

Terry Lasky <talasky@...>
 

I have access to some people who are willing to take pictures of every
gravestone in the Calarasi cemetery and photos of every page of any
genealogical significant book found at the cemetery or in the Synagogue.
These people are very trustworthy (they did the Orhei cemetery and cemetery
book for me a couple of years ago). They charge 25 cents for each photo
(in Orhei the money was given to the Jewish community and used to fix the
cemetery which had been flooding for years). I don't know how many
gravestones there are (I am guessing 1000-2000) and don't know if there are
any useful books. My guess is that we would need to raise $500-1000 for
this project.

I will set up a fundraising project through JewishGen (and give them the
go-ahead) ***only if*** I get enough pledges to make it a possibility.
If you are willing to help send me an email to talasky@comcast.net with
the amount that you are willing to pledge. If I get enough support I will
then set up the fundraising mechanism through JewishGen. If I don't get
enough support I won't go ahead with the project.

Nauralization in UK #general

shlomo and meriam haringman
 

We are used to accurate records but back in the nineteenth century
when there were no passports people just came and went.

My great-grandfather came to England about 1850 and was naturalized
twice in 1861 and again in 1869. Heaven knows, why he did it twice. In
any case, he just stated his new English name Barnett and said aka
Zweigbaum, his old Polish one. No documentation was listed for this
change.

Life was much less complicated than it is today.

Re: re Jewishgen Blog Friday May 14 #southafrica

To all SA SIG members who so quickly responded privately to my message re
Muizenberg - i.e. re Jewishgen Blog Friday May 14, please note that I
was not referring to "sea sand and swimming facilities", but an atmosphere that
pervaded amongst the Jewish communities of South Africa, that is not to be found
in any other seaside resort in the world.

I hope this clarifies all the queries >from members which I received.

RZESZEWSKI/HARRIS/ROBERTS and BINKOWSKI, Kolo and London #poland

Mary Sayers <mary.sayers@...>
 

I'm seeking information on descendants of Szmul Hertz RZESZEWSKI
and his wife Bluma/Blime/Blume/Bloomah nee BINKOWSKA (both born c 1842
in Kolo, Kalisz Gubernia. I've found this couple in the passenger list
for the ship Northenden >from Hamburg to Grimsby in 1902 when they were
accompanied by their daughters Bajla and Chana and son Falek.

The next sighting is at 18 Cleveland Street, St Pancras, where
the widowed Bloomah is living as Blume HARRIS with daughters Bertha and
Annie, dressmakers, and son Phil, a compositor, and a Harry Woolf, age
23, a hairdresser >from Poland who is described as 'cousin'.

Bloomah's death in 1914 at 18 Cleveland St was registered by her
son A Rzeszewski, whom I take to be her first child, Abram, b Kolo,
1865 (found living as Adolf Rzeszewski in 1901, a hairdresser at 535
Battersea Park Road, with wife Sarah, and as Adolf ROBERTS, same address,
in 1911)

I'd be very grateful for information on these people and their
descendants, and am happy to share all information that I hold.

Thank you.

Suggestions for resesarch methods or resources may be shared with
