Re: Post-1909 marriage records #latvia

Stephen Weinstein
 

If your grandparents were Jewish, then you would start by looking in
Jewishgen's database of Jewish Marriages in Riga, 1854-1921. Go to
https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Latvia/ to search.

If their marriage isn't in the database or they were gentiles, then
you would write to
The Archives of the Registry Department
Kalku Street 24
Riga LV-1050
LATVIA
See https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Latvia/RigaMarriages.html for
more information about this archive.

to post-1909 marriage records is difficult - assuming that such
records have survived. So, how do I go about applying to see if a
post-1909 Mozeson-Nathanson Riga marriage record exists? What proof
is required of me?

Also, would there have been a marriage announcement in the Riga papers
of that time? Lilli Nathanson's father was Max [Jankel Mowsha]
Nathanson, a merchant of the First Guild in the pre-WW1 Pale of
Settlement. He may have lived at #8 Greshnaya iela at the time of his
daughter's marriage. He was co-owner of the Nathanson & Bernheim
Department Store at Sunderstrasse/Grecinieku 8, and possibly had other
stores at Karlines 17-15 and Brivibas 93-29. If there was a marriage
announcement in a Riga newspaper some time between 1909 and 1912, how
would I go about finding it?


Post 1909 Marriage records #latvia

GEORGE MASON <gmason3815@...>
 

Thank you, Arlene, for the information you shared with me. I did a
search of the Jewish Gen Riga Tax Administration List (Fond 1384)
using the surname "Mosessohn" (Lithuanian spelling) rather than
"Mozeson" (Polish spelling) and came up with 10 identifiable ancestors !

Now, does this mean that I should be able to find more specific
information about these family members in current data bases or the
Latvian Archives, or does this mean that there once was more information
about them but it may or may not exist any longer?

Also, for clarification, back around 1909 - 1912, would people have
published marriage announcements in the local Riga papers? Is there a
specific newspaper that Jews were more likely to use for such
announcements?

Thank you, again, for your help with my search.

New Global Search facility on Gesher Galicia's website #ukraine

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

Since introducing our improved online inventories for individual
archives earlier this year, we have worked to upgrade their
functioning. These inventories can be found in the pull-down menu in
the horizontal bar on the Gesher Galicia home page, at:
https://www.geshergalicia.org/ .

Our online inventories cover all known Jewish Galician vital records
from state archives, as well as some Jewish community records, held
at: AGAD, Warsaw; three state archives in western Ukraine (in Lviv,
Ivano-Frankivsk, and Ternopil); and the Polish state archives in
Przemysl, Rzeszow, Sanok, Nowy Sacz, Tarnow, and Bochnia.

The main archive missing >from this list is the National Archives in
Krakow. Once the new archive building in Krakow has opened in 2020,
reassembling the large number of archival files >from currently five
different locations around and outside the city, we will add a new
inventory to our website for the Krakow archive.

We maintain our existing online archival inventories on a regular
basis, adding new files to them as they are made available by an
archive, making necessary corrections to existing entries, and adding
new sets of scans. Part of this work involves being in contact with
the archivists, including sometimes making visits to the archives. One
of our staff will be in the Nowy Sacz archive in the next few days,
for this same purpose. Other visits are planned in 2020 to various
archives across southeastern Poland and western Ukraine.

The Global Search
A powerful new tool is now freely available with our inventories. This
is a "Global Search" facility, which searches all Gesher Galicia's
online inventories of Jewish vital records, censuses, Holocaust-period
records and community records. Please find it, and experiment with it,
at:
https://inventories.geshergalicia.org/ .

Further refinements will be added to this facility, and it will also
be extended to cover those Josephine and Franciscan cadastral survey
records >from Galicia that we are aware of, as well as Jewish taxpayer
records and some other types of record.

For more information on Gesher Galicia's Global Search facility and
other online inventories, or for general questions or information
about Gesher Galicia, please contact: info@... .

MILLER or MUELLER or MÜLLER or MULLER from Mannheim, Germany to Connecticut, USA

Reuven Mohr
 

I would appreciate help with a r e a l l y frequent last name (within intermarriage): My ggrandfather's sister Emilie WEIL, b. Frankenthal, Palatinate, Apr 20, 1854, d. probably in Connecticut, USA, in 1873 married a protestant in Mannheim, Germany by the name Julius Otto Adolph MÜLLER. He was born Königsberg, East Prussia Jul 16, 1842. They had at least 4 children born in Mannheim:
  1. Bertha Charlotte, 1874-1935, in USA married to Ernest/Ernst LEUZINGER. No children.
  2. Albert Friedrich, b. Feb 25, 1875 in Mannheim, seemes to have lived in Germany at least till after WWI. He was jailed for some time in Germany.
  3. Friedrich Wilhelm, b. Jul 31, 1876 in Mannheim. He seems to be a Fred/Fredric MILLER who later lived in Connecticut, USA.
  4. Anna Louise/Luise, b. Jan 3, 1879 in Mannheim.
After the death of her husband on Jan 7, 1880, the mother Emilie moved to CT in 1891, to live near her siblings in New Haven, CT. as Amelia or Emilia MILLER. Possible other spellings would be MULLER or MUELLER.
I wonder if 4) Anna Louise came to USA, and if she got married? I could not find if 2) and 3) had any families. Thanks for any assitance!

Barbara <barbara.hershey@...>
 

Go on Jewishgen and go to the Romania database, the unified search, or JOWBR.
Put in the surname and Iasi. I find less specificity gives more possible
results. We do not have cemetery pictures for the specific burials; these
records came >from the burial records held by the Jewish community in Iasi.
It was a project coordinated by Reuben Singer.

Good luck.

Re: help with Budapest addresses

sjgwed@...
 

A harrowing story in the 1993 book, Young People Speak: Surviving the Holocaust in Hungary, (pub Franklin Watts & Co.) was written by Peter Barta and is called "The Brickyard." Peter was ten years old when his mother and six-year old sister were taken to the Obuda brickyard in Budapest. Fortunately, they had a Swedish schutzpass which enabled them to escape. 
The book should be easy to find in public libraries; that's how I found mine. Good Luck!

He was born 1928 and had a sister named Mina. His sister Mina was secretary to Joseph JONOVICI.
This family lived in 1932 17 rouget de lisle in paris and the grandmother ROSENCWAJG ran a restaurant at the flea market at that time.

In 1949, the ROSENCWAJG family lived in 21 boulevard victor hugo in clichy la garenne. Leon ROSENCWAJG's father volunteered during the second world war and was a prisoner of war.

INSEE Death Index 1970-2019 Available Online #france

If you have ancestors or family members who died in France between 1970 and 2019 you will find this dataset of interest .The  National Institute of Statistics and Economic Studies (French: Institut national de la statistique et des études économiques), abbreviated INSEE, has released the index of all persons who deceased in France from 1970 to 2019.  I searched using Geneanet  https://en.geneanet.org

Part of the site is free but registration with name and email address is required.  More advanced information such as name variants and parents’ names etc. does require a paid subscription.

Givatayim, Israel - Meeting January, 1, 2020 - Constructing a Family Story, Unique Research Methods

Hinda Solomon
 

“Beyond a Family Tree - Constructing a Family Story About the Family's Daily Life”
 
Israel Genealogy Research Association - Speaker Dr Eli Brauner
 
The lecture will be in Hebrew 
Wednesday, January 1, 2020

Dr. Eli Brauner has been involved in genealogical research for many years with an
emphasis on families from Lvov (today Lviv). Over years, Eli developed unique
research methods based on unconventional sources of information. His concept is
that after formulating a nuclear family tree, the research focus should be on
the family’s daily life. The family's story should be structured so that we
know how they made a living, where and what they learned, what their
relationship was with their environment and with the authorities, their
military service details, tax payments paid, as well as locating family photos,
what happened during the Holocaust and more.
The
lecture demonstrates the above and will present research tools that are less
known, such as house files, school records, and cadastral maps prepared in the
Austro-Hungarian Empire.
 
Dr. Eli Brauner was a senior director of the State Comptroller's Office for 42
years. He holds a PhD in Social Sciences. For about 15 years he has also been a
genealogist, developing family research methodologies that stemmed primarily
from researching his family in Lvov. His soon to be published book on family
research methodology, is interwoven with the story of the Schoenzel - Rappaport
family, one of the ancient Lvov families
Dr.
Brauner’s areas of expertise include: Locating sources of military service -
Polish armies with an emphasis on the Anders Army and the Austro-Hungarian
army, family research on the Holocaust perios, use of cadaster maps as a tool
for family research, family information from displaced persons camps and more.
He headed the Lvov Jewish Heritage Preservation Association and chaired the
audit committee of the Israel Genealogical Society.
