I would like a copy of the Declaration for: Harry ZIMMERMAN
vol 185/Record #91833, date 1920 Southern District of New York
How would I go about obtaining this?

Isabel... I first looked at familysearch.org, but only the
naturalization petitions for southern district federal court are
digitized at FamilySearch. So you need to send for it .. >from the
New York National Archives.

NARA has the Federal Court naturalization indexes and documents from
1790 to 1992. If you have detailed information (date of arrival,
petition number, date of declaration), then you can request the
records online. They will research for you for a fee at
http://www.archives.gov/research/naturalization/index.html
[or http://tinyurl.com/polr9c3 - MODERATOR].

Their turnaround time is typically a few weeks and the cost is $10.00.

As you have the volume and record, it should be even faster. Go to
the NARA website at: https://eservices.archives.gov/orderonline/ and
choose Order Reproductions, then Immigration and Naturalization
records.

Unusual Note on 1917 Manifest - How to Find Associated File? #general

Carola Murray-Seegert
 

Genner advice needed on two issues related to Abraham KATZ, born in
Byerazino (Minsk) 3 April 1893, who arrived on 24 March 1917 at the
port of San Francisco on the SS Siberia Maru >from Yokohama, travelling
under the name of CHERNIKOVSKY.

First question: an unusually detailed notation, added to the manifest
(Line 2) when Abraham filed his Petition for Naturalization says "Cent.
Off. letter of 6/13/36, file No. R-72774 - R/V authorizes change of name
to Abraham KATZ, see file."

Well, I would like to see that file! According to the JewishGen Infofile
on Manifest Markings, it should contain information proving that Abraham
and the person on the passenger list were one and the same. But where
would this file be stored and how do I get a copy? Could a savvy Genner
advise me?

Second question: Page 2 of the manifest (Line 2) says the passenger is
coming to stay with his half-brother "Vulf "(?) KATZ, who lived at "1622
Madison." I'm having trouble deciphering his first name. Also, am I
right in assuming this must have been Madison Avenue? I don't think
addresses on Madison Street (on the Lower East Side) had such high
numbers.

I have posted copies of the manifest's two pages on ViewMate with the
following links:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM43012
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM43014

Could a sharp-eyed Genner take a look and help me figure this out?

I already have Abraham's Naturalization Petition, his Certificate of
Arrival, and his WWI Draft Registration, so I know quite a bit about
him. Interestingly, the WWI Draft form says he had only one year's
military experience in Russia, serving as a "book-keeper." Family memory
says that Abraham had to escape Russia, fleeing >from the police. I am
guessing that he somehow extricated himself >from the military after one
year (this must have been extraordinarily difficult to do, particularly
in the first months of 1917), obtained false identity papers, and made
his way eastwards to Yokohama. I'd love to verify some of those details,
so thanks in advance for any advice.

HERSCHMAN: German/Czech historical place names #general

Miriam Margolyes <yarrawa@...>
 

Dear Genners,

While researching the HERSCHMAN family, I found them in the UK 1881
Census. The places of birth in Bohemia, written in Victorian
handwriting, were unreadable to me.

But Wikipedia came to the rescue! On this website:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_historical_German_and_Czech_names_for_places_in_the_Czech_Republic
[or http://tinyurl.com/pkng7ty - MODERATOR]
there is a hugely useful alphabetical list of German & Czech towns.
I found mine - Weiten Trebetisch (Weitentrebetisch): now known as
Siroke Trebcice

"This list was first imported >from the German Wikipedia in 2006; some
German notes remain. Since 2012, hundreds of new entries have been
added, based on a comparison with the official list of the royal
Austrian post offices which were in operation in 1900 (or which
closed earlier), each with the corresponding District code:

91 for those in Bohemia (B,xy), 34 for Moravia (M,xy), 8 for Austrian
Silesia (S,x).

In 1900, the largest number of post-offices in Cisleithania was in
Bohemia: 1434; 656 were in Moravia and 188 in Austrian Silesia. In
2010, the number of municipalities in the Czech Republic was 6250.

There are also links to subpages with listings of the German-language
names of towns and villages in the 14 regions of the Czech Republic,
sorted by the Czech name."

I hope others find this useful. I shall also post on the Austrain-Czech
Digest.

Best;
