1868 military Revision List #lithuania

SBSeales
 

The ALD has a record >from an 1868 military Revision list,
showing several men in the same household in Grinkiskis
with the last name FRIDMAN. The record lists different
fathers for each. I optimistically presume the fathers are
brothers, which would make the men first cousins.
One of the men, Abel Leyzer FRIDMAN, is my great-grandfather.

Does anyone know if it's possible to find earlier archival
material based on that Revision List, that might show the
relationship between the fathers?

Thank you,

1857 Abauj-Torna Census Records #general

Vivian Kahn
 

Peter Absolon, who been doing a marvelous job obtaining records
from Kosice and surrounding communities in Abauj-Torna County, has
now found a collection of 1857 census records in the Kosice branch
of the Slovak State Archives. The records contain data >from 176
villages and towns that you can find on the map at
https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/62/Aba%C3%BAj-Torna_county_administrative_map.jpg including:

(Abauj-)Nadasd
(Abauj-)Szina
(Hernad-)Csany
Almas
Alsonovaj
Aszalo
Barcza
Boldogkovaralja
Buzafalva
Csecs
Csobad
Felsogagy
Felsomera
Gagybator
Jaszo
Kassa-Ujfalu
Nagy Ida
Rozgony
Somodi
Szepsi
Szkaros
Torna
Zsadany

Peter estimates that it will take about 88 trips to the archives to
photograph all the records. In addition to his expenses, we would have
to cover fees that the archives charge. The total cost would be about
$5000. Before we can launch this effort I need to determine if there
is sufficient interest among researchers to make donations to support
this project and to help transcribe the records. Please contact me
off-list if you are willing to help.

Need help with surname MILUTZNIK #general

Suz <suzwllms84@...>
 

Family tradition has this as the original surname of ancestor Albert
Greenstein >from Lithuania. I was wondering if it could be Polish with
the suffix 'ik' meaning son of someone. Using soundex, I get other
variations. Any suggestions?

Thank you,

More lists of communists -- New York City 1936, New York State 1939-1940, Illinois 1939-1940 #general

Asparagirl
 

Two weeks ago, I sent an e-mail to the listserve with a link to a
scanned book which listed people in New York City who had supported
the communist party, causes, or candidates in local or state
elections, for 1939-1940. The book had been published by HUAC, the
House [of Representatives] Un-American Activities Committee, and was
therefore in the public domain as a government document.

Several people wrote that they discovered family names or other names
of interest, or alternately were surprised at the names they expected
to find but didn't find.

So here are three more lists of communists and communist-supporters
found on Google Books; perhaps these will be helpful. They each have
an abundance of commonly-Jewish surnames:

#1) "The Names and Addresses of the Woters [sic] for the Communist
Party Ticket in the 1936 General Election of the Boroughs of New York
City: Official Report for the Confidential Use of the Special
Committee on Un-American Activities"

https://books.google.com/books?id=A19bAAAAcAAJ&;printsec=frontcover&vq=Signers+of+Petitions+for+Candidates+of+the+Communist+Party+for+State+and+City+Elections,&source=gbs_ge_summary_r&cad=0#v=onepage&q&f=false
[ TinyURL: https://tinyurl.com/y79swo3o ]

#2) "The Nominating Petitions and List of Names and Addresses which
Appeared Thereon, Filed by the Communist Party with the Secretary of
State in the State of New York"
[Dated November 1940 -- this one is very similar to the one posted two
weeks ago, but it includes areas of New York State outside of New York
City]

[ TinyURL: https://tinyurl.com/y9kl9rre ]

#3) "The Election Petition of the Communist Party and the List of
Names and Addresses Filed with the Secretary of State in the State of
Illinois"

[ TinyURL: https://tinyurl.com/y8od6sks ]

Incidentally, I should mention that all three of these books were
scanned, uploaded, and listed on Google Books, but originally only two
or three pages >from each book were freely available for reading. So I
filled out this online form at Google...

https://support.google.com/websearch/answer/6113327

...and cut-and-pasted the books' URL's, and mentioned that these books
should be in the public domain, as they were part of a government
publication. Google reviewed the content, wrote back within a few
days, and "unlocked" the rest of the books, making them wholly
available online. If you ever run across a Google Book that is only
partially available, you can try this technique too, if you believe
the content is so old that it is out of copyright or should be in the
public domain.

Re: Huncovce Yeshiva and/or Rabbi Samuel Rosenberg #general

Vivian Kahn <vivian@...>
 

As I learned >from Madeline's translation of part of Pinkas Hakehillot
Slovakia, my 4th great-grandfather Rabbi Ezechiel (Yechezkel haLevi)
LOWY NICOLAUER was the founder of the yeshiva in Hunfalu, now Huncovce.
from 1818 to 1824, he was the leader of the town's Jewish community.
Rabbi Yechzkel Wolf SEGEL, the author of "Toras Yechezkel", was born
in Liptovsky Sveti Mikulas (q.v.). (Pinkas Hakehillot Slovakia, Yad
Vashem, 2003, translation by Madeleine Isenberg)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/pinkas_slovakia/Slo161.html
According to Torat Yehezkel, Abraham Singer (ed.), Pecs, 1899: "R.
Yehezkel Segal was the son of ... Joseph >from the town of Mikulas"
(Introduction, p.2) who was probably Yosef haLevi LOWY NICOLAUER
HOROWITZ. He may have been a descendant of Rabbi Judah Loew ben
Bezalel, the Maharal of Prague. The Maharal served as rabbi in
Nikolsburg >from 1553 to 1588 before moving back to Prague.
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judah_Loew_ben_Bezalel)

My great-grandmother Ottilie POLACSEK NEUMANN was a great-granddaughter
of Rabbi Ezechiel haLevi. After her husband Miksa NEUMANN died in
Szobrancz in June 1897, Ottilie returned to Hunfalu where she died in
November 1915 and is buried.

Marty Meyers <martymeyers@...>
 

I'm looking for descendants of Simon (a tailor) and Katie (nee
ROSENSTEIN) MOSKOWITZ who were both born in Janowa near Chorzele in
the early 1880s. Their children were Louis, Rose and Deborah (two of
whom were born in England) and they lived in the Bronx in 1942 (per
old mens draft record). Deborah married a Saul HARRIS and had a son
Mathew and a daughter Cynthia whom I would like to connect with (my
GG-GM was a ROSENSTEIN >from Janowa).

Am I wrong in thinking that there should be a birth and/or a death cert for an infant? #general

Barbara Mannlein <bsmannlein@...>
 

Am I wrong in thinking there should be birth & death certs for Fanny's
chiid?

If not, can someone locate Fanny's child's birth or death cert??
---
To summarize::
1. Fanny GOLDSMITH ANDERSON, Joseph ANDERSON's 2nd wife, d. 23 March
1893, in Manhattan, NY.
2. COD - Peritonitis Puerperalis (childbed fever). Have DC.
3. Wife #1 gave birth (1882, 1884, 1888) and died in 1889.
4. Wife #3 also had 3 children.
5. Per all relevant census reports: Total of 6 children. (3 >from
Wife 1, 3 >from Wife 3.
6. This was a well-off family w/2 live in servants.
7. Per an MD: "Puerperal fever occurs after delivery; does not affect
the child normally (unless the infection is STD.)"
8. No family member has an unexplained child at that time.
9. There's a Fanny Anderson on FAG, @ Green-wood Cemetery (Bklyn).
There's also one listed on JewishData.com but I don't have a
subscription. (I will call both cemeteries on Monday.)

10. Checked FAG, Steve Morse, FS, & Ancestry & Billion Graves and all
the NY cemeteries with on-line databases.

I've searched leaving the child's first name blank, but with the
parents' names. I've tried wild card searches in case the names were
mistranscribed. I'm stumped.
