Your Voice is Needed Now—NYC proposes limitations on your use of public records #general #records

Jx. Gx.
 

Friends -

The New York Genealogical and Biological Society has posted the follow important message on their website.
 
The NYC Department of Records and Information Services (DORIS) is proposing changes to how researchers can use public records held at the Municipal Archives (including New York City’s birth, marriage, and death records).  

In short, DORIS is adding language that limits your ability to share these documents with others and prohibits the use of these public records for educational, scholarly, non-profit, or media purposes without a paid license.  

The impact of these changes for researchers, genealogists, historians, and others is immense. You can learn more about these changes and their direct impact on you at nygbs.org/access-alert

From that page, you can learn how to add your voice to this conversation before October 23, 2020, by submitting your personal comments, signing a public comment, participating in the public hearing, and/or sharing this news with others. 

We need your voice to affirm that public records created by taxpayer funds remain freely accessible. 

Thank you for your support – Joshua


For more information about this proposed licensing and fee increase, please click on the link below or cut and paste to your web browser.

Re: File of Berdychev surnames 1897 census #ukraine

Family and DNA
 

Paul & everyone else -- that Boris Finkelstein file has lists of Jewish names for various "cases" (each book is a case) in the fond 384 opus 15. The names are divided by case, which is the 3-81 you see (1st page shows names in case 3-5 for instance). Some of these index files have page numbers, this one unfortunately does not.

If you see the name you want listed by BF under 3, you have to go to the file at https://uk.wikisource.org/wiki/Архіви/ДАКО/384/15/3 then look through that PDF for the name.

Hope this helps!

which opens a page with a listing of all the names appearing on pages 3 to 81 of something but I cannot figure out the material from which it was extracted.  As Chazen appears several times on the listing I'd love to find the original file that was used.

Re: Do you recognize? Siblings picture from Kherson c.1912 #ukraine #latinamerica #photographs

s05a02@...
 

Dear Cesar, 

I do not recognize the people in the picture but the interesting thing is your search about the Silbert family that migrated to Argentina in 1913. My grand mother family name was Silbert and I know that her parents came from Ukraine, Russia. 

Do you know something more about this family? I can tell you some about mine maybe there is some relation.

By the way I also live in Israel .

Hoping to hear from you soon

Re: Looking for family of Tsoglin from Chernigov and Semenovka #ukraine

Earl,

Try searching The JewishGen Ukraine Database
https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Ukraine/

I suggest doing a soundex (sounds like) search.  I very quick look at the database shows a few people named Tsoglin from Chernigov.  Surname also spelled TSOHLIN Other spellings show up, but you'll have to figure out if they are relevant to your family, or not.

Regards,

File of Berdychev surnames 1897 census #ukraine

On the Ukrainian archive material recently discussed I worked my way to the Berdychev 1897 census page https://uk.wikisource.org/wiki/%D0%90%D1%80%D1%85%D1%96%D0%B2%D0%B8/%D0%94%D0%90%D0%9A%D0%9E/384/15

JERUSALIMSKY/ROSEN-Schuzcin to USA #usa

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

Interested in making contact with descendants of the JERUSALEMSKY
family from Sczuchin who came to the USA around the turn of the
19-20th century. In the USA most of them changed their family name to
ROSEN. They are known to have lived in Baltimore, Chicago and other
places.

My wife, Rebecca Ben-Ari is the daughter of Rabbi Morris YERUSHALMY
who didn't change his name.

Re: Yiddish male given name 'Kos' #poland #names

Michele Lock
 

Reading all of the above, I think that the name Kos is from Kehos/Kohos/Kehat/Kohat, from the name of one of the son's of Levi. All very interesting.

I looked on SteveMorse to see if there are any New York City death records for the given name Kos or Koss, and there are about 10 of them, all from Jewish families. So, there were a few men walking around NYC with this name.

Thanks for the help.

My friend spent 5 years off and on trying to find her great grandfather by searching exactly for 'Aron Kos Shaler' and only with that spelling. Couldn't find anything. I found him in about 15 minutes by searching census records for anyone with the last name 'sounds like Shaler' in NYC, and found Aaron Shaler living in Brooklyn, age 70 years. And using Steve Morse, found the death record for Koss Shaler. Sure, I got plenty of Schillers and Schollers, and the like, but it was safe to ignore them.

Where can I find the birth certificate of someone who was born in a DP camp (Benzheim)? #records #holocaust

Jessica Eber
 

My cousins would like to find the birth certificate of their mother, who was born in 1946 in the DP Camp in Benzheim. Is there a special archive for DP camp records? Do they just write to the nearest German office of civil records? Thanks for any suggestions.

Are there any records from Kolonie L'vove, Kherson Guberniya, which was one of the former Russian Jewish agricultural colonies.  BTW I am one of the webmasters for this shtetl on the Kehilla links.

Success! Family Reunited After 68 Years #holocaust #JewishGenUpdates

Nancy Siegel
 

Say, Dad, Grandpa is Not dead? Reuniting the Family After 68 Years

by Noah Isman

“… Many people gathered at the border-crossing but the Russians did not let them pass. While they were waiting, and before Israel had a chance to find and join his father and brother, a German air raid started and the crowd dispersed, some running into a nearby forest and some exploiting the disorder to cross into the Russian zone. In the commotion David and Henryk lost each other, never to meet again…”

Noah tells the story of how his family became separated during the Holocaust, how some were murdered by the Nazis while others, unbeknownst to each other, managed to survive, and how the families reconnected after almost seven decades.

In Sefardi-accented Hebrew, "Kehos" would be pronounced "Kehat".

Re: Yiddish male given name 'Kos' #poland #names

yitschok@...
 

In this record it definitely says Kehos Mandel - with the H after the K. Although it's spelled differently than the Hebrew Kehos, in Hebrew there are no vowels, and in this record there is the vowel O between the H and the S, I still believe it's the Hebrew name Kehos.

Naomi,
Thanks a lot. Yes, I did try the S.A. archives and did find quite a bit about the LEVINS but not what Iam looking for which is related to my ggm who was found in documenst about Bowesdorp in Namaqualand.

I send this reply as a new topic since I have not been able to find out how to reply to a reaction from other members of the discussion groups.

Re: Yiddish male given name 'Kos' #poland #names

jrsackerman@...
 

In my family "Kos" or "Koas" is Yiddish for Kohas or Kohat (that name also can be Kehas or Kehat), which was the name of one of the three sons of Levi, i.e. one of the three families of Levites.
