Subj: birth certificate on ViewMate with strange/suspicious date in Norfolk, Virginia #usa

kosfiszer8@...
 

I have posted a birth certificate from Norfolk, Virginia that shows the birth being in 1902, but the filing seems to be in 1918 (5/9/18). Did it take 16 years for the paperwork to be processed?. Also, the one signing in place of the doctor or midwife is the father. Anybody came across any similar situation? It is on ViewMate at the following address ...
Please respond via the form provided on the ViewMate image page.
Thank you very much.

I have not investigated the account requirements. I signed up long ago and do not remember what was required. Perhaps there is a way to deny access to your contacts list and still download the paper?

I have been reading the various explanations about immigrants traveling
through Ireland. I am attaching an article I wrote for the Ft. Lauderdale
Sun-Sentinel several years back, after I interviewed a spokesperson in
Dublin. The ships did not come into Dublin, but to Cobh (County Cork). The
museum mentioned is now in a new location.

Hope this helps, Molly

From Lithuania to Brooklyn: Preserving a Family Collection & History    

Speaker: Diana Korzenik

Brooklyn native Dr. Diana Korzenik first conceived of her book, Lithuania to Brooklyn, The Rabbi Daniel and Minnie Shapiro Family, as a way to preserve and document her collection of her maternal grandparents’ family objects now in New York’s Yeshiva University Museum. In that process she uncovered facts about the treasures  and the pains  of her grandparents' and parents’ lives, revelations that signal a departure from her family’s years of silence about the Old World, so familiar to many immigrant families.

Dr. Korzenik will first detail the process she followed in learning how to preserve her family collection. Then she will describe surprises in the stages of her construction of the family narrative. She begins with the family in Lithuania, fleshing out her grandfather’s Lithuanian rabbinic education, then turns toward rabbis’ debates about pros and cons of leaving, and challenges of getting to America. Once on New York’s Lower East Side and then in early 20th-century Brooklyn, both Rabbi and Rebbetzin Shapiro significantly contribute to Brooklyn’s Orthodox Jewish education and social services amidst the diverse pressures of Americanization.

Bonni-Dara Michaels, Collections Curator, Yeshiva University Museum, will speak briefly about the Museum’s acquisition policy and Dr. Korzenik’s donation of the Shapiro Family Collection.

Dr. Diana Korzenik, a writer and artist with paintings in museums as well as private collections, is professor emerita at Massachusetts College of Art. Her two prize-winning books, Drawn to Art: A Nineteenth-Century American Dream (1985) and Objects of American Art Education: Highlights from the Diana Korzenik Collection (2004), were based on collections she amassed for research, collections now, respectively, at the American Antiquarian Society and the Huntington Library. In addition to the Shapiro Family Collection, she created three additional research collections now held at the New England Historical Genealogical Society and two other institutions.

All are welcome; attendance is free, but registration is required:

Jewish family name Williams in NY State origin in the old coutry ( Suspect Suwalk/Suwalki #usa #russia #lithuania #poland

kosfiszer8@...
 

I need help with ancestors Williams that lived in Oneida county and also NY city, in NY. Some members are in the Acacia cemetery, Suwalki section in NY city. In particular, the Oneida county Williams' came to the USA around 1883-1885 being born in 1861-1864; Charles and Sophia/Sofia came as a couple and had 9 children, 6 of which survived by 1900. I can not find immigration and citizenship records to find out what may have been the family name in Europe as I suspect Williams was not originally their last name .

David,

Have you seen this 1908 passenger manifest for Lena WOLK from Petkuny?
You can see the full passenger manifest at:

Lena is going to her son in Worcester, Massachusetts, and she left behind a daughter in a town that looks like Pilbesok Smalska.

Regards,

My Kaplan family lived in Ariogala in the 1850s-1880s.  I visited in 2005 and saw the cemetery, which now only has a few visible stones.  You should look at the online information at:

Re: Help ship records - not all family did entire journey to USA #usa #russia #records #belarus

Hi,
I had similar trouble finding an ancestor on a manifest. Someone on the list helped me find that he had taken a different route than other family members. Instead of going directly from Hamburg to New York, he went to England and then to Canada and then traveled on ground to New York. It hadn't occurred to me to check Canadian ports.

best,

Dear Mr. Heilbrunn, I will definitely check those books out, and I thank you for walking those streets and landmarks in memory. So many of our family from Lodz died their brutally.  I am hoping to some day visit in their memory, too.  Sending my best and gratitude for your kind response, Sharon
