Naturalization Index / Search #usa #records

Hi All,

I found the following index record for naturalization: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XKGP-CWY

Could someone explain how I would use this information to find the actual Declaration/Petition?

Thank you (and Happy Passover!),

Hello Michael,

Registration of births became compulsory in England and Wales only in 1875.

(Ukraine) Ukraine Website 1917-1924 Database #announcements #records #ukraine

The website, Ukraine in 1917-1924, says more than 200,000 people were combatants in the Ukrainian armies (Armed forces of the Central Council, the Army of the Ukrainian People's Republic, the Army of the Ukrainian State). The website has documented more than 16,000 people who were involved in the fight for Ukraine's independence. According to various estimates, documents containing approximately 30-40 thousand names of Ukrainian soldiers are available in Ukrainian and foreign archives. theoretically, It is possible, therefore, to establish the names of 15-20% of the personnel of Ukrainian troops for the period 1917-1924.

 

The database has been compiled from various sources since 2008. The unit of account of the database is not a document, but a person. Therefore, one name may contain information collected from one or more sources (sometimes up to 10).

 

The database provides the following information on participants: name, unit of service, rank, birthdate, birth place, death date, cause of death, place of death and place of burial. Information varies for each person, naturally.

 

While the website is in English, and can be searched in English, the information  is in Ukrainian when you click on the brown name so you may need to use Google translate  https://translate.google.com/  or Deep L translator https://www.deepl.com/en/translator

 

To view the website, go to: http://www.db.geroika.org.ua/en/home.html

 

Thank you to Vera Miller and her blog, Find Lost Russian and Ukrainian Families for sharing this information.

Cechova is simply the female form of the surname.  

This is not clear -- was Nohel his given name or his surname?

My paternal grandmother, Sarah Golde Lorber, was born in Tarnopol in 1873. Her birth was not officially registered until 1891 before she married so that she could use her father's last name and that her birth would then be legitimate.
Also, her parents, Joseph Lorber & Rivke Kasten, registered their marriage with the civil authorities at the same time.

Need help researching family with son declared dead for marrying a gentile #austria-czech #records

Richard Nohel
 

Hello, I am new to this group format and could not figure out how to initiate my own message to start with. I recently learned that my great-great grandparents who had 11 children, actually had a twelfth who was "declared dead" by the family for marrying a gentile. He would have been born between 1845-1860 in Bohemia (I believe the family lived in Mcely). The only thing I know is that he changed his name from Nohel to Cech. His wife may have been Cechova. I am wondering how I could possibly research this to determine if there are any living descendants as I would imagine there should be some record of a legal name change either with a government entity or a Jewish temple archive. Any suggestions would be most appreciated. Richard Nohel


Re: Looking for a Jewish Genealogy DNA Book #dna

I think that you will have better luck with blogs than with a book because the field is changing so rapidly.  I know that Lara Diamond started a project to come up with statistics about shared cMs and relationships a couple of years ago.  Her blog is at:
Lara's Jewnealogy (larasgenealogy.blogspot.com)

I know that there are several others, hope that other people will add them here.

Ulics records were kept in Szinna (Snina) books, but these have been lost/destroyed during ww2.
Only civil records starting October 1895 exist for the town.

Re: My Grandmother JABLONSKI from Pruzani #belarus #russia

DALE ZEIDMAN
 

Hi Marilyn,
I read your post with interest. I think there's a possibility that we might be related through my grandmother, Gussie Jablow, who immigrated to the U.S. around 1897 from Minsk, Belarus. The name Jablow has been used by my great grandfather in the U.S. since the 1870s. I have been told by experts that the name couldn't have been Jablow in Belarus and was more likely something like Jablonski or another similar name, but I've been unable to track her and her family using various combinations of other Jablow-like spellings. I also believe that the family was originally from Poland or Lithuania, but I haven't any proof of that -- just a gut feeling.
My DNA is on Ancestry and My Heritage, but I didn't find a match for you and me. Do you have DNA on either of those sites? I'd like to look further to see if any names on your tree/s match names on my Ancestry or My Heritage tree. Is that possible?
Be well and safe.

Hello,
You do not offer more detail about what towns your "Ulics" may be near. It sounds like you know where it is.
Perhaps this is the location and some detail:
https://www.iabsi.com/gen/public/settlements/SL_Ulic.htm
If so, records may be in Presov.

Re: My Grandmother JABLONSKI from Pruzani #belarus #russia

Sherri Bobish
 

Marilyn,

I suggest searching the Ellis Island manifests at:
https://stevemorse.org/ellis2/ellisgold.html

The following type of search produced interesting results.
Surname starts with J  (be sure to tick off the circle that says "starts with or is"
Town name sounds like Pruzani (be sure to tick off the circle that says "sounds like"

These are just a few of the results that seem pertinent to your search.  There are many others.

Jablonskaja (Beila, Chaim, Joseph) from Prushany
Jablonski (Chanetke, Chawe) from Prusany
Jablonski (David, Dime B) from Pruzan

As you can see, both the surname and the town can appear with variant spellings.

Hope this helps,

Sherri Bobish


Location of vital records for Ulics #hungary

erikagottfried53@...
 

According to Hungary's 1848 census) my third great-grandfather, Jozsef Gottfried, was born about 1799 in Ulics, which was then part of Hungary (it later became part of Czechoslovakia, then Slovakia).

Ulics' Jewish population seems to have been too small to have a synagogue that held vital records (or perhaps too small even to have a shul at all -- I don't know).  What I'd like to know is which town (or different towns) in the area was the place where these birth, marriage and death records would have been recorded for Ulics. Can anyone on the list answer this question or perhaps suggest some clues?

Re: Late birth registrations #poland #records

Michael Hoffman
 

My cousin the late John Shamrock registered his son birth 3 years late in (1960) in the UK, and the birth certificate say registered on the Authority of the Register General. Birth Registrations in England & Wales should be registered up to 42 days after birth, otherwise it is a criminal offence not to doe so.

Looks like Yiddish to me. Maybe post it on viewmate as a Yiddish translation request. It seems like it says a name and a quick mention of being somewhere on some day, but I don't really speak Yiddish.

Re: Jonava,Lithuania memorial Book 1972 #lithuania

There is a digitized copy of the Jonava Lithuania Memorial Book at the New York Public Library website. Here is the link:
https://digitalcollections.nypl.org/items/4c6cbb20-79ac-0133-819d-00505686a51c#/?uuid=4cc3a710-79ac-0133-9198-00505686a51c

If this link doesn't work, use a search engine to get to the New York Public Library Yizkor Book Collection and search for Jonava.  Susan Goldsmith has done a wonderful job of coordinating the JewishGen Yizkor Book Translation project for the Jonava book.

There is a necrology at the end of the Yizkor Book.
