Re: A new "names" database? #names

Not only do you see the last name you are looking for, but you get the member name or number and a link to contact them with.

 

No matter what the subject is, as soon as I am done reading a post to the group, if someone has a signature with the families and locations they are looking for, I read through and see if there is a chance we can be related …to me, the  key is being polite and respectful…  I always apologize to the poster telling them I am sorry I can’t answer their initial post but would be willing to explore any possible family connections based on their signature if they would like to…

Sliwkiewicz or Slivkevich, originally of Warta, Poland #poland
From: John Crust
Date: Wed, 23 Sep 2020 05:16:49 EDT
Hello. I'm seeking information about a SLIWKIEWICZ or SLIVKEVICH family, originally from Warta (or Varta; in Yiddish, Dvort), Poland. The father and sons were Jewish headstone makers and operated a family business in Warta before the war (I don't have a name for the father). I am particularly interested in the son, Meir (spelling?), who died during the Warta Ghetto era, probably in 1940. An older son was Szmuel or Shmuel.

Thank you.

Re: Require help in understanding items on the attached New York marriage certificate #records

"The bride's given name appears on both pages, the 2nd signed presumably by her. "

The back was not signed by her, as both signatures are by the same hand.  The front was filled out, by him probably, in a very different hand.
He didn't read English well, and put an address where it asks for number of marriage. 

This isn't rocket science, you could figure it out.

Re: What would be a full set of naturalization records in NYC from the 1850's? #records

Barbara Ellman
 

Early naturalization records have very little information on them.  Basically, what is on the index card is pretty much it.
 
Not to say that you shouldn't look for the actual papers.  They can be rather humorous.  I had one that went on for 6 pages on what a great guy he was without any genealogical information.
 
I have never seen a ship's name on any of the documents I've seen.
 
Good luck

Does this need  a myriad of volunteers - or could a computer program extract this from historical email?

Re: Do old hotel registers exist? #general

Mashiach L. Bjorklund
 

Hotel registers (AKA Hotel Guest Register Log Book) are not legal documents, therefore they were not archived like other documents. If you find one it should be considered a random find. Sometimes, in small towns, the local boarding house / guest hotel had it's register published in the local small town newspaper. People were nosey and privacy was not a big concern in days past. But in larger urban areas this was not the case. But it does imply that you might want to search Newspapers.com for that time period and that local. People were still nosey about visitors, and perhaps his reason for being there was noted.

Re: What would be a full set of naturalization records in NYC from the 1850's? #records

Sally Bruckheimer
 

"I have been able to find the Declaration of intent (19 April 1850) and Oath (2 July 1843) as components of the naturalization record of my 2nd great grandfather Charles Schiff.  They correspond to the records referenced in the index to naturalization records - dates, bundle number and record number – all on Ancestry.  Neither the index card nor the records contain the port of arrival or date of arrival. "

My family also came very early. All you get is "I give up allegiance to the King of ___"

I always write in response to people who tell us that all naturalizations come with Certificates of Arrival and name changes and such, that not all do. 

I did however get the naturalization papers for a cousin who naturalized in 1906 (the last in the Niagara County Court), and this Russian Jew said he was born in Marseilles! It was amazing, as was getting the actual paper in my hand to look at.

Re: Does anyone know that Shtetl or town in Latvia where Israel and Sora Michla (Margolis) Katz lived? #latvia

Hi Barbara

The first step should be to search the passenger manifest and the naturalisation or other records which show the place of birth of Morris, Louis and Ida. You can find all this records online on familysearch. Where in the US did they live? Maybe there are some newspapers online.

When you click to view their tree, their name should appear in the top left corner. Click on their name and the button "Message" should appear. However, if they choose in their privacy settings "no contact", that button will not appear.

Re: A new "names" database? #names

Ezra Magid
 

Thank you David Lewin!!
IMO, a brilliant idea.
However, a new cadre of volunteers, and a coordinator, are needed to avoid reducing the currently donated hours donated for existing projects.
In this "Digest #1216", Joel Alpert seeks volunteers for HTML coding for The Yizkor Books Projects".

I've recently learned that many high schools in The USA have MANDATORY volunteer requirements for all students.
During "social distancing, HTML coding "from the comfort of [their] home[s]" could be an attractive opportunity for students.
How many of our members have children &/or grandchildren seeking volunteer projects?

Re: Require help in understanding items on the attached New York marriage certificate #records

Susan&David
 

There are three instances where the bride's name appears. I see it as Scheine twice on the first page, and Szeny on the second page.  If you can get to see the stone in the cemetery you might see Shayna in its original Hebrew.
The name in the bride's marriage number slot appears to be her mother's maiden name, Turopp.
Why is the marriage number slot  filled in with something else?  As details were being entered the slot was thought to be needed to complete  information from above and, in haste, the label on the slot was ignored.

Emma's parents were Salomon Feuerman and Marjem Waldman.  She was born in Zabrid/Zabrougy, Galicia, near Lviv. Their children, all born in NYC, were Mae (1901), Anna (1904), Herman (1906), Martha (1913), and Louis (1916-1999 Los Angeles).

Many thanks for any suggestions.
