Re: Death notations on Lemberg birth records #galicia

Mark Halpern
 

Birth records in many jurisdictions, including Galicia and the Austrian
Empire before WW1, used birth records to record subsequent civil events
for that person including his/her parents' marriage, his/her marriage,
and his/her death.

The fact that these subsequent events are *not* found in most birth
records leads to the question of why not? Was it the laziness of the
registrar? Was the recording of subsequent events on a Galician birth
record not required?

I noticed when doing the input of births in Lviv back in 1854 some
deaths were recorded on the birth record. Most are void of this
notation. Some have dates well into the years after their births,

Why would this be done?

Help tracing Solomon Cohen (and parents) - 1st cousin 2x removed #general

Scott Ehrlich <scott@...>
 

Solomon COHEN, a dentist around 1920, in New York, was a 1st cousin
twice removed >from me.

Having obtained birth and death dates >from his daughter, I obtained
his birth certificate along with his application for a social security
number.

Between those two documents, Solomon was born June 5, 1904 in New York.

The birth certificate notes his parents, Samuel COHEN and Pauline Rose
(SKYER) COHEN, lived at, what appears to be, 54 Chrystopher St. in New
York (best attempt to read the handwriting on the birth record).

Birth record of 1904 notes parents were >from Russia (this is known)
and were both 35 years old at the time. Samuel was a butcher.

What I'd love to attempt, and seek help with, is trace Samuel and
Pauline back to when they arrived in the US, then back to their ship
manifest.

We at least have the address and date of birth, along with approximate
age of each.

And, of note, I do know that Samuel, the father, has three other
siblings, one of which was my great grandfather, Israel COHEN.
Samuel, Israel, along with brothers Harry and Louis, had parents
Solomon COHEN and Marilyn (WOLK) Cohen, according to Louis' Social
Security application - in Louis' own handwriting I have to presume.

Help tracing Samuel and Pauline back to their ship manifest is most
appreciated.

I did trace Israel to the Trakai District of Lithuania, to the town of
Panashishki, with the help of many on this list. I am hoping
Samuel's ship record will provide validation or even more insight.

Thank you very much.

Jim Bennett, z"l #general

Apollo Israel <apollo@...>
 

I'd like to draw the attention of the Jewish genealogical community to the
untimely passing in Israel last week of Jim Bennett z"l, longtime JewishGen
member and father of current Israeli Education Minister Naftali Bennett. I
never met Jim personally but we shared several long and interesting
telephone conversations and many emails over the years, including just a
couple of months ago, as we were both researching the Lichtensztejn family
in the Sieradz/Lodz areas and may have had common ancestors. Speaking with
him was always a pleasure, and I am truly saddened by his passing.

May his memory be blessed and may his family be comforted among the mourners
of Zion.
