Hamburg BMD - 1790 - 1813 #germany

Judith Elam
 

Where would I find Hamburg BMD records 1790 - 1813? My ggg-grandfather,
Joseph David LEVY, Banker and Lottery Inspector, went >from Mecklenburg to
Hamburg to "find another wife". His first wife died in 1790 and is buried in
Neustrelitz. He stayed in Hamburg for 21 years, and was "very happy", so I
assume he was successful! I have found him listed in the Hamburg address
books. I would like to find out about his 2nd wife and children, if any.
He then returned to Penzlin, where he married again - to my ggg-grandmother,
Amalie AHRENHEIM in 1815.

Re: Organizing Research for Non-Computer-Literate Genealogist #general

Eva Lawrence
 

I'm pretty computer literate, but I prefer to work with paper records. So
I acquired a printer and organise my research results in A4 ring binders. I
have binder for each surname or person, depending on the amount of material
available, marked clearly on the cover. The print-ups are inserted into
transparent punched-hole A4 filing envelopes and slotted in date order (the
date of the vital record, not the date of acquiring it).

Because the software enters sources on the print-ups in most cases, I don't
need to do that. But your friend can do the same with her manuscript notes,
recording the source herself. She does need to take time to write the data
out neatly with all the relevant information on each sheet, or sheets.

Just doing such meticulous filing will give her a much better overview of
what she has found out, and make it evident when a piece of research has
already been done.

It may sometimes be helpful to file duplicate sheets in different folders.
And don't edit out anything that doesn't seem relevant now, because it may
prove to be useful later on.

Admittedly this filing system takes up a lot of space - but that's my
personal choice. And I keep the stuff on my computer as well!

Progress in the search for a HOLLANDER family #hungary

davidlewin@...
 

I have found Sidonie HOLLANDER. I have her civil marriage record which shows her
personal data precisely (date and place of birth, address, names of the parents). I
also found her husband in an electoral register of Budapest.

What the documents do NOT show us is what happened AFTER 1950.

- Did Sidonie Hollander have children
- Where were the family members after 1956
- where/when did Sidone die
- what can be done to locate a surviving member of this family?

Can you help with that please?

Many thanks

Re: Question about Religious vs. Civil Marriages in New York #general

A. E. Jordan
 

From: Risa.Becker@gfk.com
"Was it common at that time in NYC to have a religious marriage prior to a
civil ceremony? And if so, why. didn't the religious ceremony count legally?"

First I would ask did you check the actual 1906 certificate? Some times the
index is wrong on the dates. Also read the certificate to see if it shows
that the report was delayed ... it should say when and where the marriage
took place.

It would not be common for a civil ceremony to be performed after the
religious one in New York City in 1905/1906. Maybe the 1905 or earlier
ceremony was not in New York -- or even the USA --- and for some reason the
couple felt they needed to document the marriage on paper in New York in 1906.

What we more typically find is a civil ceremony first months earlier and it
seems like the family or whatever then convinces the couple that they needed
to redo it with a religious ceremony. You can tell because the first one is
usually at the Municipal Building and performed by the City Clerk or Deputy
Clerk. I recently saw one (not Jewish) where the first marriage was performed
by a local elected official of some notoriety and a few months later they got
married in the church.
