Date   

Sarasota March 10 presentation Dr. BL Kagan Physician, Educator, Social Activist and Revolutionary.

Jo Ann Goldwater
 

Everyone is invited to see my presentation at Temple Beth Israel on Longboat Key on Tuesday March 10, at 2 PM. I will be showing a video about Dr. BL Kagan (1870 - 1912), a pioneer in modern medicine in the Moscow province of Russia. The video was made more than 100 years after his death, but he is remembered and revered as a man who gave his life to helping people both medically and socially. It will be of special interest to Russian and Jewish historians, and anyone who is interested in health care in general.

For more details, see attached poster. Admission is $10 if you reserve in advance, $15 at the door. Free for temple members.

I would recommend writing to the municipal authorities in the candidate cities with as much detail as you have.

What a shame!  This is a lovely but possibly under-visited museum. I spent several hours there a few years ago.  It's Holocaust exhibit was especially moving.

It's been weeks since I could use the Given Names Database without getting an error message.  I wonder if the Ancestry Jewish Given Names function now has the same information, or just a subset?

Vital Records in Detroit, Michigan

Joan Rimmon
 

I want to find the cause of death for my grandmother, Esther Knoppow Glanz, and would appreciate it if someone could check it for me.  She died October 7, 1944 in Detroit.

If not, does anyone know how much a copy costs and how to obtain a copy of the certificate?

I would like to add that not only is the decennial census important for drawing voting districts, redistributing Congressional seats, and allocating federal spending, it is also a <i>critical</i> resource for those of us who regularly use Census data to analyze demographic, socioeconomic, and housing characteristics and trends. 

I hope people will participate.

Hi Solomon,

sorry, I thought it was obvious since I had replied to Bernard Flam's message who had recommended Arolsen. So, I had meant the Arolsen Archives (formerly International Tracing Service, ITS). https://arolsen-archives.org/en/search-explore/inquiries/submit-inquiry/. Gold luck!

Re: question on burial record

spolon@...
 

Hi Molly,

My guess is that the name Paderier or Paderiver comes from the village Pader near Slutzk in Belarus. The ending -er is yiddish. The slavic ending -ski gave the names Paderski and Paderevski. Look A. Beider, A Dictionary of Jewish Surnames from the Russian Empire, Avotaynu, 2008. The passenger manifest for the Mishelov family in 1919 shows that they came from Uzda, which is between Slutzk and Minsk. It fits with an earlier origin from Pader. 

Hope this helps,

Re: Divorce

From: Ellen Gottfried <ellen@...>
marriage certificate indicates that she was divorced.
I am unable to find a record of the divorce. I checked all the
boroughs of New York City, New Jersey and Nevada (Reno County).


In New York City the marriage license contains details of the prior divorce and in some cases even has a copy of the decree.  If they divorced generally it would have been in the borough where they were living but in New York City the divorce cases are sealed for 100 years and most of the indexes are not online or available so I am not sure where you checked.  Brooklyn is the one borough which seems willing to let people see the index.

But since divorce was not as easy to get as it is today a lot of people went elsewhere be in Reno or even out of the USA.

The only hope I think you have is to look to see if New Jersey preserved files similar to New York since she admitted she was married previously you assume she had to show proof of the divorce to get a license to remarry.

Divorce

My grandmother married HF in 1923 in Manhattan. They lived in
Manhattan. She married my grandfather Abe SOLOMON in 1928, in New
Jersey and the marriage certificate indicates that she was divorced.
I am unable to find a record of the divorce. I checked all the
boroughs of New York City, New Jersey and Nevada (Reno County). Does
anyone have any ideas as to where else I could look?

ViewMate translation request - German

Deborah Schultz
 

Hello. I've posted on ViewMate part of a birth record for which I need a translation, and I hope a kind volunteer may be able to help.

This is from the birth record of Rebekah Spiegel, born in 1892, in Plavie, near Skole, Ukraine (formerly in Galicia, Austria-Hungary). 
Her mother was Feige Raeder of Plavie, and her father was Szulim Spiegel of Dolina. 

I think the record is in German, but please let me know if it's not, and I'll update ViewMate. It's on ViewMate (in 3 parts), at the following:

1) Column with mother's information only: https://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=78744 

2) Column with notes, perhaps about the parents' marriage: 

3) More from the notes column, which may be signatures: https://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=78747

Please reply via the form provided on the ViewMate image page.

This is for Rebekah's family. She unfortunately did not survive the Shoah, and it would mean a lot to them, to have this information. 
Thanks so much!

Problems with JewishGen

Neil Rosenstein
 

The system seems to be having problems.
When I do a search for surname and town, it comes up with a blank screen when before I could find the same records.
Does anyone else have the same situation?
