Zemplen adoption records #general

jeremy frankel
 

Dear Elizabeth and Genners,

In general, all adoption files are sealed and can only be unsealed
through a court of law. If a child was adopted at birth, then the
"real" birth certificate is also sealed and another one is issued
with the child's "new" name (or at least a new last name) and the
adoptive parents listed as the parents. Matters do change >from state
to state, so I would check at your local library for any books on the
subject or go online to any of the adoptee self help groups.

Good luck,

Jeremy Frankel
Oakland, CA, USA

Subject: Zemplen adoption records
From: "Elizabeth Lourie" <lourie@worldnet.att.net>

My ggrandfather ROSENBLUTH, born 1836 in Humenne, Zemplen County, was
adopted. His birth name is thought to be LIEBERMAN. Does anyone have
any idea of how to find records of his adoption?

MUNITZ Family #general

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

I am looking for several, possibly unrelated, MUNITZ families who came to
South Africa in the 1920's >from Lithuania (Kupiskis, Panevezys, Subacius,
Utena), Latvia (Ludza), and Belarus (Braslav), as well as >from two places
which I can't identify positively . . . Aremen and Dvorno (yes, I have used
MapQuest). They settled mostly in Cape Town and some went to Johannesburg
and also to Bethlehem in the Orange Free State.

Some of the families who related to the Munitz family were the following:
BERNADT, JAKOBSON, KOLEVSOHN, OLOKENTSKY (became Alkin), RAVDEN, and SVARC
(became Schwartz).

One of the Munitz family who came to SA, Rochel Munitz, was >from Kupiskis,
Lithuania, and was born about 1905 or so. I have been unable to connect
her to the two families that I have family trees for. Would be most
interested to learn who she belonged to, especially since I don't have her
married name.

Thanks for any assistance . . .

Re: Announcing a new feature, the "ViewMate Image Gallery" #belarus

Hi all,

Perhaps I'm doing something wrong - when I tried to search the
archive, selecting a category, only the first responses were from
that category. Clicking on the subsequent pages took me into the
whole archive.

Has anyone else had this problem? Or no problem? I'd appreciate some
advice. Thanks!
