Re: Marriages in London #germany #unitedkingdom

Corinna Woehrl
 

Hello all,

I am sorry to disagree with this assumption: from 1874 on, a civil marriage necessarily precedes any religious marriage in Germany (and then Prussia) – until now.
Berlin was a melting pot with various religious communities and If you wanted to 'be different' you could. In a smaller town, people would have cared but not in Berlin. There must have been a different reason. My guess is missing documents and fewer questions in London...

Regards from Germany

I find Family Tree Maker merge function much more effective that Family Tree Builder’s more-manual method, although Family Tree Maker crashes a lot on me and things get corrupt with the local database. I am glad that master is online for both. The local PC versions are primarily useful for merges for me. I keep my single master on ma local PC in Brother’s Keeper and then manually make the same changes on geni.com.

 

YMMV

Does Family Tree Builder - which works with MyHeritage - work the same way as Bob describes FTM & Ancestry?  That is, can you put all the tree data into Family Tree Builder, and keep it just on the computer - sync it to MyHeritage (which is on-line) but make that all private?

I have also been using FTM for close to 10 years. One thing I am curious about...When FTM synchs documents & pictures that it brings down from ancestry, does it keep a copy on the local hard drive or does it only keep a link to where the item is stored on the ancestry.com server?  If it is only a link, that means that you lose all of the items if you ever cancel your ancestry account.

Re: Kra family in Paris #france #general

Hello Joyce, Bernard, Corinne,

Simon KRA (real name Salli KRA) was married to Marguerite MEYER (connected to Hedwig MEYER)
source : Archive de Paris as per Corinne"s advice

A naturalisation as French citizen can be found in the 1884 year records
source : as usual -- Journal Officiel de la République Française

A lot can be found either via Google , either via Gallica.fr as well
Especially in the French Press as this was a famous library

Re: Genealogy Programs #general

I had Rootsmagic and had lots of problems with it working on my Apple computer! Their customer service was horrid.
I ended up buying MacFamily Tree and especially like that it will flag a problem (duplicates, age/date of birth is a conflict, etc) and interfaces with familysearch.org which has millions of Jewish records. It does books, reports, etc. Cost was reasonable. Has some nice features and does allow same sex marriage by changing the sex, which pops up automatically (ex, female if you are adding to a male on there already). You can play with the trial version and see if you like it. 
I think it is easy to use but is a pretty powerful program and haven't learned how to do lots of the fun stuff...yet. It does have an easy to use manual that you can download and print or save on your computer for reference. I really haven't had to use the manual much as I find the program pretty intuitive.
Good luck!

OZ newspaper 1915 puzzle Town/area MLAVA and MOLAVA? #russia #hungary #romania

Hello

Researching surname to find links to GG birth town/hometown, found an Australian newspaper 1915 reporting areas Mlava and Molava across River Danube, Serbia? Wondering if this may have been a mistake in the news as not seen anywhere spelt the same 'Molava'.

Re: DNA Matches - Most CentiMorgans or Largest Segment? #dna #education #poland #ukraine #galicia

Alan Ehrlich
 

To be sure, I’m a big fan of Ancestry.com in general. It’s unequalled... That said, not so regarding their handling of DNA test results from other suppliers, or more precisely their absolute lack thereof. Luckily, if you tested with one of the other providers (because there arevadvantages to that), having your results uploaded to all the others (except Ancestry) leaves your resulting absence from Ancestry... Insignificant.


Especially, because I suspect it's fair to say that most serious family researchers who were tested via Ancestry (you know which ones I mean, the ones who’ll actually respond when you contact them about a match 😀) also uploaded their results to all the other databases as well. So you’ll find them anyway... and they you.

From my perspective, Ancestry not taking your test results into their database when these came from another provider much more is a ’Bug’... than  a ’Feature’ 

Kind regards,

Here are the translations, in the same order. I didn't translate the Hebrew dates. "Ben" means son of, "bat" means daughter. Reb is only an honorific term it doesn't mean Rabbi.

Re: UK Marriage Authorisation Interpretation Questions and Translation Request #unitedkingdom

David Harrison
 

This is a question of crossed lines.  I think that Authorizations relate to Orthodox Jewish Weddings in Britain under their Beth Din and are not a part of Civil Marriages.  Usually existing membership of a Synagogue is required and that may have needed to have been proved with the Ketubah for the parent of the person being married.  But for a non-member the Ketubah would have been needed by officers of the Chief Rabbi if it were possible or then maybe a meeting with questions on the reality of the Jewish ancestry of the person .  Certainly, pre-WW1 the United Synagogue only had one Rabbi (as the Chief) all other people who now would be Rabbis were Reverends and that person might only give the D'vah Torah (or sermon) whilst the Chozen led the majority of the service as is still often the style in many places.

"Thanks for raising the subject of US Marriage Authorisations". I don't think you are talking about US Marriage Authorizations - there is no such thing. In the US, each state has its own rules, and we have Marriages Licenses, not Authorizations.

Re: Where is the record? #galicia #records

Mark Halpern
 

First, let me say that searching Ancestry or any other commercial database is a very poor substitute for using JRI-Poland and Gesher Galicia for Galicia records and JRI-Poland for records from other areas of Poland. 

Specifically, much of the data on Ancestry that is sourced from JRI-Poland has not been updated since it was added over 10 years ago. And much of the data are only finding aids to record indices on the JRI-Poland online database. 

Ilya, in your search, you identified two death records that included the name of Benjamin LUKACZER, not the death of Benjamin. Actually, one record reported the death of Benjamin's wife Scheindel in 1880 and the other his son Salomon in 1883 as shown below. In both records there are links directly to the images of those records. 

So, JRI-Poland and Gesher Galicia are where Galicianers should search first for your family from Galicia. Of course, Ancestry may be one of the best source for identifying the town in Galicia where your family immigrated from using US immigration and naturalization records.

Re: Emigration from the UK to the US #records

mandy.molava@...
 

Much the same here, I have families who split went to USA and one stayed in UK, I can only find 1 record for a neutralisation in USA, they all travelled in early 1900. Been on a long journey myself looking - told a few weeks ago by a kind gent on here that the UK didn't have many records at all for incoming as they assumed most would just land and then go elsewhere. I can suggest though if you are on Ancestry to do a search with the beginning of the surname and end it with * as this will then bring up an array of spellings (and mistakes in spellings), also don't just look at the records straight from the search, look at original document that you can 'view' I found a couple with 3 different variations of the spelling of mine.

Good luck

Re: Second try: How do I make a payment to a Ukrainian Archive? #ukraine #translation

alan moskowitz
 

I had responded previously with some comments.   You might try the following:   Using google translate, write a message in english and it will be translated into Ukrainian.   Reply to the archives.  Tell them it is difficult to pay them directly and ask if someone can provide a personal email address for you to send payment.  Transferwise can send payments cheaply to a personal email address. The receiving person will link that email to their personal bank, then receive payment and then they can pay the invoice.  You might look up the director of that particular archive online, and put Attention:  director XXX in the subject line.  This is an easy way to proceed, and since your invoice is very cheap, there is little risk to you.   Otherwise you will need to contact a bank in the Ukraine to handle this.  You can do a bit of searching using Google Chrome which will translate websites for you, and then email the invoice with a message in Ukrainian.  I would suggest in both cases, to put the English translation in your message  -just so you will know what you sent, and perhaps someone on the receiving end will benefit as well, and respond in English. Good Luck!
