HYMOFF from Poland #general

Jenni Hymoff Koeppel
 

Hello again,

I got the following information >from the Waltham Archives regarding my ggf,
Israel HYMOFF

Set 6 1 document 3 pages – Israel Hymoff
Petition for Naturalization
Born Lublin Russian Poland Sept 11 1871
Arrived NY,NY June 26 1889

They do not have the name of the ship or any further information. I know
that he married Adeline Pauline KADETSKY widow WATERS around 1890, they had
5 surviving children (they and their own children all accounted for but the
names and birth years don't match with the children named in the 1900 census
so there must have been a few that did not survive). . In the 1910 census
an Israel Hymuth is registered in Rutland State Hospital and as coming >from
Germany - we are fairly sure it is the same person. Although the family had
not moved, they are not listed in the 1910 census. Adeline died in 1918 in
the flu epidemic. In 1920 Israel is listed in the census as living with his
daughter and son in law Max, as a matter of a fact, all Israel's children
were living with poor Max- he married an entire family, not just a wife!

1. Any suggestions on how to find out the ship he arrived in NY on to see
the manifests and maybe find out where he was really >from and
2. How could I get records >from the hospital, that no longer exists
according to Google info.
3. Any recommendations on what our next step should be?

Thanks in advance for all your help,

cheers, Jenni Hymoff

Re: Brooklyn history #general

Steve Nathan <Steve@...>
 

If you can (or get someone to go for you) you can check with the City
Register for Kings County and find out who owned the property at the
time. A title abstract company will do it for a fee.
BTW, current Hagstrom map shows only Christopher *Ave.* in Brooklyn. There
is a Christopher *St.* in Manhattan, New York (CITY) County.
Good Luck,
Steve

How can I find out who lived at 188 Christoper Street in Brooklyn >from 1889
to 1905? Thanks for suggestions.

SOUTH AFRICAN (CAPE) PARLIAMENT #southafrica

Adam Yamey <adamandlopa@...>
 

My great grandfather Franz GINSBERG was a Member of
Parliament (MLA) for King Williams Town on and off
from 1908 until about 1927. I wish to discover more
about the kinds of legislation with which he was
involved.

In the UK all proceedings (debates etc) that occur in
the Houses of
Parliament are recorded word for word in a series of
volumes known as "Hansard".

Does such a publication exist for the South African
Parliament? If yes, then what is it called?

The period that interests me is 1908-1927, and the
Parliament(s) that
interest me are those that governed the Cape
Colony/Province including the Provincial Council,
which he joined as a member in 1910.

Thanks,
Adam Yamey, London, UK <adamandlopa@yahoo.co.uk>

Donation of Birth Certificates #unitedkingdom

Stephen Mednick <jewishgen@...>
 

Quite often the moderator of this group adds the suggestion about donating
unwanted certificates by clicking on the link
http://www.jgsgb.org.uk/alluk/certificates.asp

However, in the case of BIrth Certificates, the link seems to not allow adding
Birth Certificates with a year later than 1905. I have a number of unwanted
Birth Certificates >from the Sunderland Area dated after 1905 but before 1925.
Can somebody please advise as to what I can do with this.

Thanks.

Lodz Book of Residents #lodz #poland

Orit Lavi <orit@...>
 

Dear Friends,

Following Fay Bussgang' s recent posting, could someone please explain the
efficient way to obtain records >from Lodz Books of Residents.
I need to search these books for many of my branches, starting at early 19th
century till 1931.

Can it be done without hiring a professional researcher?

If I visit the archive in person - will it be more efficient rather than
writing a letter to the archive?
Will I be able to search the books myself?

I would appreciate any other advice.

Thanks a lot

Hello Fay Bussgang

I noticed your reply to Tzilla Kratter regarding her search for Schleime
KIRSHENBAUM.

Are the Personnenblatt-Karty Meldunkowe >from 1918-1920 and the Ksiegi
Ludnosci (until 1931) which list all legal residents of Lodz you mentioned
available online?

When contacting the Lodz State Archives - can you email them or correspond
in English?

If the records are not online, can they just copy the pages for the
requested family name or does someone actually research this?

Lastly, are the Lodz State Archives for the city of Lodz proper or the whole
province?

Thank you for your anticipated answers.

Dear Tzilla Kratter,

Lodz Archives have very good records called Ksiegi Ludnosci (until 1931)
which list all legal residents of Lodz. A whole family is listed on one
page with
birth date, place, names of parents, occupation, where they last lived,
etc.

In addition, they have Personnenblatt-Karty Meldunkowe >from 1918-1920 with
much the same information. You could write the Lodz State Archives and ask
someone to do the research.

Re: seeking my family in south africa - pitofsky or pytowski #southafrica

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

You did not mention the first names of those who might have gone to South
Africa and I am wondering if the family you found in Argentina knew what
happened to them? Perhaps the missing family went to Argentina as well
rather than South Africa or perhaps they went to Cuba as an alternative.

Did your family flee after WWII or before? If before, they would have had
to do it prior to 1939 when the last ships >from Europe came to SA bringing
fleeing Jews. One of my relatives was on the last ship.

The name and all of its variants does not appear in the South African
National Archives and another respondant has told you they did not find the
name in several other sources. The only other thing I could suggest is that
you post an inquiry in one of the South African Jewish newspapers and see
what happens.

Good luck!
