My great-grandmother >from Ushpol, Lithuania stated her husband was born
in Dvinsk, Latvia around 1880. They were married in Dvinsk, and their
children were born in Dvinsk 1900, 1908 and 1912.

Question 1, where would their records be located? Her husband died
sometime after 1912. Her last place of residence before emigrating to
the US in 1922 was Rokiskis,Lithuania.

Question 2, This was before WW1, what wars were going on around that
time? Are there military records available?

I am researching: STEIMAN, STEINMAN, >from Lithuania; SKLADEROVICH
(SKLEIDEROVICH) >from Ushpol (Uzpaliail) and Wilkimer (Ukmerge) and
NADEL >from Zloczow (Zolochev) Poland now Ukraine.

Thank you,

Recipients of the Polish Cross of Merit #poland

Alex Guri
 

Dear Genners,

Does anyone know where I could find lists of recipients of the Polish
Cross of Merit

The Cross of Merit (Polish: Krzyz Zaslugi) is a Polish civil state
award established on June 23, 1923, to recognize services to the state.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cross_of_Merit_(Poland)

My late grandmother's sister received this merit and I'm hoping such a
list will contain some details on her whereabouts and circumstances
during the war (for which the merit was given to her).

Regards,
Alex Guri, Israel

United Synagogue Marriage Authorisation Certificates #unitedkingdom

Joy Kestenbaum
 

I am interested in obtaining a copy of my grandparents's United
Synagogue marriage authorisation certificate, My grandparents,
Benjamin FREEDMAN and Selina KANTOR, were married in London on 25
February 1906 by Rabbi Joseph F. Stern at the East London (Stepney
Green) Synagogue. I have read online about the collaborative project
between the United Synagogue and the Jewish Genealogical Society of
Great Britain to index the authorisation certificates for marriages
which took place before 1908. According to the webpage
(http://www.theus.org.uk/support_services/find_your_family/marriage_records)
of the United Synagogue, where one can search for marriage authorisation
certificates >from 1880 to 1891, one can order records at a cost of 20
pounds,. The website notes that records will be added as each year's
indexing is completed. The link to the JGSGB Genealogical Enquiries
Team (reference USCRMAC) on the webpage of the United Synagogue noted
above and on the JGSGB's website do not provide an email address, and
I have not set up an an email client, preferring to maintain an online
account, so I have not been able to write directly. I'm hoping to
obtain the email address of the JGSGB Genealogical Enquiries Team, an
update on the project, as my grandparents were married after 1891,
and/or assistance in acquiring a copy of my grandparents's marriage
authorisation certificate. Is it possible for someone to check for my
grandparents's certificate or would I need to wait until the later
records are indexed? How would I go about ordering a copy >from the
United States? (I already have their wedding photograph, their
ketubah, an invitation to their wedding, and a certified copy of the
civil registry entry of marriage.)

Thanks for your assistance,
