Marian,

He could have naturalized in a local court that does not have their index on-line with any of the major genealogy databases.

Where and when do you think he naturalized?

Given name SOSCHE #names

Barbara Zimmer
 

Susan Goldsmith asked about the given name Losche.  This still doesn't answer the question about what given name she may have adopted in the US. 

 

If you look at the outbound manifest from Hamburg, her given name is shown as SOSCHE, with an initial S, not Losche.

Is there a research section that covers the Vileika Uyezd of Vilnius Gubernia #belarus #lithuania

Susan Goldsmith
 

Is there a research section that covers the Vileika Uyezd of Vilnius Gubernia?  I believe there used to be, but I can't find it.  Did another district take over?  I am particularly interested in Dauhinava, Belarus, formerly Dolhinow, Vileika, Vilnius, Lithuania.
Thank you,
Susan Goldsmith

You may wish to contact Jewish Tour (jewish-tour.com), a long established firm based in Minsk, which offers an in-depth genealogical service as well as heritage tours. Another avenue which you might pursue is to contact Hesed - Rachamin, (hesed@...), also in Minsk.  They can check to see if anyone with the family name you are seeking is listed on their register.

Re: Online trees #general

Marcel Apsel
 

I was long thinking to put my family trees on Geni and I speak about 8.000 names, but I won’t do it; I did extensive research on Geni and some far distant relation to whom I had once send a tree in gedcom put it on Geni without my permission; ok with recent generations he paid more attention to the privacy, but when I see what happened to that tree, I became horrified.  The tree is a shulent, kishke and kigel mixed together, where my father becomes my great-uncle, a wife is born 25 years later than the date when her husband passed away, parts of the tree are mixed with others, wrong writing of names, death dates are put it as birth dates, information added by one person is contradictory with information put in by others etc.   The principle to share family on a public tree is in principle a good idea, but the results are less, at least with my tree.  I feel a pity for all the geni administrators who have to clean out mistakes and non realistic input.  Conclusion: I keep my tree with me and family who wants to get a tree, I will share with them with a  PDF format.

Finding The Correct Record #general

Teewinot
 

Hi Cousins,

I'm having trouble figuring out which image is the one I need. I'm
hoping someone here has done this before and can help me. This whole
numbering system has me confused.

I'm looking for the birth record of Movsha-Meer MAJZLIN. The listing is
as follows:

Microfilm/Item:
FHL1920797/3

Image:
86

Archive/Fond:
NHABMinsk/3362/1/7

Place Recorded: Mogilev
Year: 1872
Record Number: M259

The images are found here:

https://www.familysearch.org/search/film/007766480

Which image is the one I want? That's what I can't figure out.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I have also never had any luck with Theory of Family Relativity and have a large number DNA matches.

Re: Taking Photographs of Microfilm Reader Images at NYC Municipal Archives #photographs #general

suemo63141@...
 

I have been there many times. Initially I tried taking photos, but the staff is fairly alert and will reprimand you. Recently much of the microfilm has been indexed and you can see images online rather than using a microfilm reader (which are usually 50% out of commission and out of focus). The place is run on a shoestring clearly, and I have sympathy for the obvious fact they have no funding. At least the staff is helpful. My solution is to make up in advance a spreadsheet with identifiers for all the records I want to look up, and then when I have the image, enter the information in columns prepared for the data I need. The value to genealogists of marriage documents is to be able to decipher the names of the parents of both parties, addresses that help verify identities, and sometimes the officiant and witness names can be helpful as well. Birth and death record images can also contain unindexed information. Beware that this office has only the archived records that NYC allows to be public, and that NYC is very recalcitrant about liberating records that should be public by now (e.g. births only available to 1909). This office is separate from the Health Dept, which has later records and is much less public-friendly.

The female Yiddish name Losche in the US? #names

Susan Goldsmith
 

Dear Genners
 
A female Losche Tobias emigrated to the States, arriving in 1914 from Swerzhen, now Belarus.  What might her American name be?
This is not a very common name.  I have checked Jewish given name websites.  I cannot find her in the 1915 NYS Census even though she went to an uncle in Brooklyn in 1914.
 
Thank you,
Susan Goldsmith

Re: Naturalization Records for Samuel & Mary Babinski. #usa #records

Thank you for your quick response to my question, Sherri!  I’ve already researched Familysearch.com & other websites.  I have almost reached the conclusion that my grandfather never was naturalized although I just received a very specific link within the NARA.  I will try this link before I put this question to rest.

Best wishes,

Marian Apple 🍎

Years ago I got LDS microfilm sent to a local Family History Library where they had a USB writer and I copied an entire film or two to USB and then created an indexing project and shared the index with JewishGen. I don’t know if NYC Municipal Archives has similar equipment.

Re: C- Files - US Naturalization Index care - what info on it? #general

David Oseas
 

Moishe,


If you have the C-file number, then you can skip the initial index search and go straight to a request for records.  However, see this cautionary note about errors locating file numbers:  https://www.uscis.gov/history-and-genealogy/genealogy/genealogical-records-help/avoid-common-genealogical-research-errors

as well as this article on how to find the correct number:  https://www.uscis.gov/history-and-genealogy/genealogy/genealogy-notebook/where-do-i-find-a-c-file-number

Re: Ancestry to be Acquired by Blackstone Group for $4.7 Billion #announcements

"Alternate asset manager" is a broad and loose term that includes venture capitalists and private equity fund managers. Imprecisely, it means managing money in ways other than buying and selling publicly traded stocks and bonds. 

(Tiny anecdote unrelated to your question, but my own name basically translates as "Black Stone". In the early days of the internet I tried to register "blackstone.com" but "some company or other" that I'd not heard of at the time beat me to it.)

Re: Is Ojzer and Ejzer the same name as Uscher? #general

Molly Staub
 

My father’s name was Usher Harast/Arost, becoming Oscar in the U.S. He had an uncle in Philadelphia also named Usher, and I have found several Jarast relatives in South America named Uscher. I have never found the spellings you posted. My father was from Dumbraveni, Soroki, Bessarabia. HOWEVER, I have recently discovered a large branch from Piotrkow, Poland with that name, spelled Jarost. I’m not an expert on Polish, but since your names include the letter J, perhaps that’s something you might pursue. Happy hunting,

Officially, this is not permitted. My first time there I discovered I could not copy with my phone. Since I was interested in the data and not the certificate, I just wrote down info. In the NYC Municipal Building, if you need a Naturalization done through their Supreme Court, you can photograph everything including the valuable Petition.
