The Becker's Email
 

It would be helpful if you stated specifically what you are looking for.  Also, approximately when was your gf born?  What was the name of his father and his second wife?  Where might the family have lived?  The more information you can provide, the easier it will be to help.

Need Help Interpreting Ellis Island Manifest #records

MarkWeinberg18@...
 

I would appreciate help in interpreting the writing on my grandmother's Ellis Island manifest.   I am interested in lines 10 to 13, Gitel Malke WEINBERG and children Neche, Freida Taube, and Moshe.  
 
Questions:
- Columns 10,11 page 1; 20, page 2:  I believe that the town she was from, and where she was born, is Dobrzyn, Plock Gubernia.  Is this correct?  Unfortunately, there are two Dobrzyns in Plock: Golub-Dobrzyn and Dobrzyn nad Wisla.
- Column 11, page 1: What is her mother's name?  I believe the surname is GARTNER, but can't determine the first name at all.  This woman would be my great-grandmother.
- Column 18, page 2: What is the name of her husband?  I believe it says Itzig WEINBERG.  Is this true?  He would be my grandfather and I know that his name was Isaac/Yitzchak.  I also know that Itzig is Yiddish for that.
 
Thanks very much.

Rab: Ziff attested to the divorce Bann and that the record was in the Poviat court, located, I am assuming this to be a file number, 15.15[16]  i21.

Dear Nicholas,
I've done a good deal of research on the Jewish Legion/Royal Fusiliers.  I found your grandfather's listing in the British medal rolls and am attaching it.  If you'd like more information about the group just let me know. Happy to help.

My best,

Brother's Keeper permits names in Hebrew.
I know Hebrew can be used in comments but have not tried
using Hebrew dates in the date field.

Hebrew in GED files can be loaded into Agelong Tree. I do
not use Agelong Tree to record information, only to
produce tree diagram and Hebrew prints fine.

If you want Hebrew windows as titles, pull-downs
names of reports, options, etc. BK does have a number
of other languages, but not Hebrew.

If you're in Israel, send me a note and I can speak with you by phone.

Hedwig, Sophie and Alice KASSEL in Uruguay #germany #latinamerica

oliverdmarshall@...
 

I am trying to trace Hedwig Kassel (née May) who was born in Osthofen, Worms, Germany (in, I imagine, the 1890s) and her daughters Sophie Kassel and Alice Kassel. I am fairly sure that they escaped to Uruguay in the late 1930s. I am especially interested in what became of the family in Uruguay.

Thank you!

Re: Record of immigration to Israel 1960 #records #israel #hungary

I suggest Ministry of Interior. They can supply a document
of your entry at least.

During this time, I suggest looking for an e-mail address
or call them by phone.

If you get nowhere with a phone call, try again. My experience
is that if the first person does not help,
the next one may.

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #lithuania #ukraine #yizkorbooks

Bruce Drake
 

In 1827 Nicholas I issued a statute making Jews in Russia liable to personal army service and canceling their prior privilege of providing money ransom instead of conscripts. Conscription often was tied in with the payment of taxes. If a family was late in paying their taxes, a family member could be conscripted. Even after this occurred, they would still owe the full amount of taxes. Prior to 1827, Jews in Russia were forbidden to serve in the military.

Yizkor books are replete with accounts of Jews who left the country to avoid conscription and about those who remained and pursued all sorts of stratagems ranging from disguising their names to finding ways to get rejected for medical and physical reasons.One story in my family said my great-grandfather from Kovel deserted the army where he was a drummer and came to the U.S. Hard to confirm, but I did note that he was assessed a tax by the Kovel County recruit office for 300 rubles the very year he left for America in 1904.

I have previously published a few of these accounts about Jews and Russian conscription, but have come across some new ones worth sharing. One is “The Recruit” from the Yizkor book of Vishnevets (Ukraine) which said that two of different means of avoiding the army included chopping off a thumb or pulling out all of one’s teeth. “Military Conscription is Likan” from the Yizkor book of that Moldavan shtetl said that one of the saddest seasons of the year was Fall which, aside from the foul weather, included the “bitter addition” of the Russian conscription which followed the High Holidays.

Conscription was so dread that there was a saying — Gekrogn a krasne bilet—iz gevezn porkhe-nishmose — which meant “He got a red ticket (draft notice) …”he almost died of fright. Or more simply a way of saying “He got bad news.”

Re: KAMANOVITZ - KAMMONOWITZ - KAMONOVITCH - SINGER - RABINOVITCH in London #unitedkingdom

captrobbie@...
 

Hello Harvey -  Perhaps coincidentally, our family tree shares two family names.  My Romanian-born great-grandfather, Solomon (Shlomo) RABINOWITZ b. 1864 immigrated to the United States circa 1892.  I believe my great-great grandfather, Avram RABINOVCI b. circa 1828, married Ruchel SINGER, b. circa 1827, perhaps in Botosani, Romania.  Per chance, does any of this match anything on your family tree? -  Paul Robinson, Southampton, New York, USA

You would have no problem request his death certificate from the New York City Department of Health.  A daughter of course has total rights to a parents' certificate.  Assuming you have a different family name than his would will be required to provide proof of the relationship but the Health Department rules permit children to have parents' certificates.  The question of course would be if you are certain he died within the boundaries of New York City. Death certificates are filed where the person died regardless of where they called home.

Finding a Long Lost Cousin - Unraveling a Clue #general

Carl Kaplan
 

In searching for a long-lost cousin, I found this potential clue (below my questions) through Ancestry. My great uncle was Joseph Kaplan, and I know he had a daughter named Bertha. My 2 questions regarding the record below are:

1. Since Bertha married in 1940, which means the child (Norma) would have been born out of wedlock, would it be common at that time, especially for a Jewish family, to put down the grandfather as the father.

2. When this Norma is listed in Aug. 1961 as Norma Rabinowitz, does that mean she was married in August, 1961, or simply sometime before that?

Name:        Norma Doris Kaplan [Norma Rabinowitz]
Birth Date: 25 Jan 1938

Birth Place:                  Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Death Date:                19 Dec 1995

Father:                        Joseph Kaplan

Mother:     Bert D Kaplan

SSN:           162303472

Notes:        Sep 1953: Name listed as NORMA DORIS KAPLAN; Aug 1961: Name listed as NORMA RABINOWITZ; 22 Feb 1990: Name listed as NORMA DORIS RABINOWITZ

Thanks,
