Warsaw, Poland Probate (Notary) research #general

David Priever
 

Dear fellow Jewishgenners
Would anyone be able to suggest a researcher in Warsaw Poland who is reasonable to
do a Probate (Notary) search? I have the exact date of death for the person. I
have used one researcher who is extremely expensive although her work was very
satisfactory.

Sincerely

Re: Bad Arolsen/ITS/Int'l Red Cross Search Requests #general

Stephen Esrati <steve@...>
 

My own experience (with excellent results) was to ask my local branch of the
American Red Cross. It took time, but was worthwhile, at least for victims of the
Shoah.

Later, I was able to get more complete information >from the German Bundesarchiv and
the archives of the city of Berlin. But I am still lacking some basic data.

sons of Hermann HIRSCH and Julie MAYERSOHN. Julie is my g-grandmother.

Looking for some help tracking someone down in the UK #general

Philip Trauring
 

Not living in the UK, I'm not overly familiar with the Jewish genealogical
resources available there. The only mailing list I was able to find was available
only to paid members of the local genealogical organization. I am writing to ask
that someone who lives in the UK and knows where to post to try to find someone,
can help me in getting my inquiry out in front of the right people.

I'm looking for someone who posted several Pages of Testimony at Yad Vashem back in
1989. Her address then is listed in Brentwood, Essex. If she's still alive she
would be about 82 today. I'm looking for Diana Davis (formerly Goldina Trauring)
married to Michael, mother of Graham and Anne. If someone on this list knows or
knew her, or can help me get this inquiry in front of more people >from the UK, I
would greatly appreciate hearing >from you.

Thank you,

Re: I messed up again. #general

DrYattz <winwinsit@...>
 

I have been humbled by the warm and
wonderful response I have received >from newly-discovered family members, and I
hope that, like me, even if you start out simply trying to gather information,
you will also have your life enriched by the extended family you discover.
Lisa, yours is a wonderful set of suggestions! I've recently been
researching my wife's family, and in the process, have facilitated the
rejoining of two "lost" lines of cousins - one represented by a cousin
who had grown up being told he had no surviving kin beyond his
immediate family! In one situation, second cousins were attending the
same synagogue many hundreds of miles >from their common ancestor's
first US residence, and despite having the same last name, they knew
nothing of each other! (Whew. . . to have been at that reunion. . !)

In this usually delightful part of genealogy, I found a cousin of my
wife eager to share information but having none, whose aunt had bitter
memories she was reluctant to share (particularly with a sheygets).
So, for two months now, he and I have corresponded by email and phone,
and he has eagerly provided little nuggets of information which I have
researched, contacting him after each with more questions which he has
gracefully, gently posed to his aunt. For now, it's working!

Re: NY Marriage Lic lookups requested #general

Sally Bruckheimer <sallybruc@...>
 

Joy recently stated that marriage records were not required in NYC until
after 1900 and in the rest of the state after 1880. I know the 1880 law,
but even before that marriages were recorded - even in NYC.

My ggrandparents, 2 couples, had marriages recorded in New York City in 1870,so
don't stop looking just because the law may not have required the registration.
I got their parents' names >from them, their places of origin, etc. You need to
search carefully, even if there wasn't a law.

And for one of these couples, I had to look at the records myself, as the search
I did by mail (many years ago) didn't find them under the exact names I sent -
they used fancier names, but I know they were the right people.
