Vital Records in New Jersey #general

feinber2@...
 

Dear Genners,

I thought I would respond to Richard May's letter this way, rather than
privately, because there are probably a lot of people who would like to get
NJ vital records. It's not that hard to do. There are no LDS indexes
available, so you have to go through the state. I recently did this.

Just write to: State of New Jersey
Department of Health and Senior Services
P. O. Box 370
Trenton, NJ 08625-0370

They will do the research for you. Just provide a name and a location (city
or county) as a minimum. Any other info such as address, parents' names,
date of death, next of kin might help, also.

The cost is $4 for each certificate. They charge an extra $1 for each year
that is researched. Make check out to New Jersey State Treasurer.
Turn-around time is about 4 weeks. Not such a bad deal. If you have extra
cash and a short attention span, you can call 1-800-669-8309 and request the
records through "Vital Chek", and can get records quicker ( 8-14 days
through US Mail, or 5-7 days through Federal Express for an extra $14.75).
There is also an $8.95 charge for credit card use thru "Vital Chek." Good
luck.

Help with Polish Birth Record on ViewMate #general

DrsJavinskyLittle <SusanLittleDVM@...>
 

Dear Genners:

I have posted the Polish birth record for my husband's gg grandfather on
ViewMate - file VM112.

I believe I have translated the following information correctly:

Israel Icyk Dziewiecki born Feb ?, 1849
Father: Kalma Dziewiecki, age 37
Mother: Ruchli Ickowicz, age 25

I cannot read the date in February that Israel Icyk was born and I cannot=

decipher the occupation of his father or where he lived. Could a kind
genner please have a look for me?

Thank you in advance !

As for researchers, there is a link through JewishGen which lists
professional genealogists and their qualifications. It can be found at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/ajgs/jgsla/apg.htm

And also in the FAQ files there is an article with suggestions on how to
hire a professional genealogist written by a professional genalogist.

Hope this helps.

I am afraid my letter was unreadable, so I resend it in Textformat only.


[mod.- Thank you Gabor. Nearly 100 subscribers, all of whom have AOL cannot receive messages except when sent in "plain text" format. LS

I believe I have the same kind of listing >from different source, from
Bekescsaba, neolog and orthodox
Battonya
Bekes
even in the same settlement might be differing even in headings, I take
Bekescsaba as an example my hometown, as well as I transcribed it.

Orthodox community; Each member of the family is on a separate line.
1st. col. running number; The 2nd col. is name, first name; 3rd col.
Mothers name, first name; 4th..  col. last address.

Neolog community; Each family member is in a common line the 1st.  col.
running number; 2nd. col. name, first name; 3rd col. Mothers name, first
name; 4th col. wife's maiden name first name; 5th col. chlordane's name
6th col. last address.

Mezotur, Each family one line and common 1st col. running number; 2nd
col. name first name; 3rd. col. last address; 4th col. mother's name
first name, 5th col. wife yes/no; 6th. col. no of children

Mezokovacshaza;  Each family one line and common 1st col. running
number; 2nd col. name first name; 3rd col. date of birth; 4th col.
family status; 5th col. mother's name first name; 6th col. first name of
family members; 7th col. birth data of fam.. members; 7th col. last
address

Battonya each family one line, no running number, column for birth

place, date, father's first name, mother's name and first name, address
(but settlement only)

I saw may be one list with profession added.

AS you see the lists are quite individually set up. There are quite a
lot of orthographic errors included, the list had to be prepared on
short notice. I believe it is an advantage, if you came of the place and
definitely understands some Hungarian. I am willing to send you the
computer lists of the settlements of the ghetto >from Bekescsaba if they
are identical with the ones you are going to get, because it don't give
me any additional work  but you have to validate, proof it. But as the
source is neither >from Y.V. nor >from the Jewishgen/H-SIG I want to use
them and expand them with register of death if Shoa victims, for me they
are not genealogical but Shoa documents. The settlements I am ready to
cooperate are Banhegyes, Battonya, Bekes, Bekescsaba, Endrod, Gyula,
Mezokovacshaza, Oroshaza, Szarvas, Totkomlos. The list of Szarvas is
missing, Bekescsaba is finished with some 2049 person.

Best regards
Gabor Hirsch

Re: Solicitation from researcher advice #ukraine

one takes thier chances when dealing with the unknown - Avotaynu has had much
useful info in the past on researchers >from regular writers. I wish Avotaynu
would
create a list of Avotaynu approved researchers. Any of you who subscribe and
read
the magazine regularly should already have the info you need. If you dont get
it you
should - besides belonging to your local Jewish Gene. Society all should
belong
to Avotaynu the number one Jewish Genelogical publication in the country - who
is partly responsible for some of the JewishGen databases and so much more.
This is not an ad - this is fact and common sense - I have no connection with
the Avotaynu people - but they do work together with JewishGen and other
groups.
My advice is get the Avotaynu CD Rom's of all past issues and check for
articles
and testimonials on Ukraine researchers and archivists. Also keep in mind
things
change fast so some info will be out of date. For instance last I heard RAGAS
will no longer do research but will supply a list of researchers without any
guarantees
on the researchers.
