Re: Conversion records South Africa #southafrica

Jeremy Lichtman
 

My understanding is that the Beit Din in RSA only started keeping records in 1924.

This according to a doctoral thesis I found online some while back - "Conversion to Judaism in South Africa", by Rabbi Pinchas Zekry. It's a massive document (300+ pages) covering a lot of detail. If you can track down the author, he might be able to point you to where the archives are, since he appears to have consulted them in 1998!

Rose/Rosie/Raizel Segall, Mile End 1909, Whitechapel 1911 #warsaw #yiddish #unitedkingdom #lithuania

I am looking for anyone with anything that might be linked with Rose/Raizel Segall, who married Lazarus Zimbler in 1909 in Mile End, and lived in Whitechapel with Lazarus (Eliezer) and their new daughter Rebecca in 1911. I'm trying to find any immediate family - siblings, parents etc. She was born in Kaunas (Kovna) Lithuania around 1887. Lazarus died young, and Rose was bombed out of Whitechapel in WWII, and moved to Highfields in Leicester to open a deli. According to my dad, she never learned English, only speaking Yiddish & Hebrew. Anyone who could shed some light on her origins would be a hero.

If it is a secret, then you should not be posting it on ViewMate.

If you are sure that it merely had to be kept secret from the brother, and you know that the brother is deceased, then it may be harmless.

But if there is a possibility either that it should be kept secret from the general public, even now, or that the brother might be alive and see it on ViewMate himself, then it should not be posted there.

Re: Records of Landsleitschaften in New York City #records #usa

The Museum of Jewish Heritage in NYC holds many landsmanshaftn records. Unfortunately, every time I've reached out to the museum to inquire about records pertaining to my Jewish immigrant ancestors, my requests have gone ignored and unanswered. Even phone calls prior to COVID were met with a degree of barely veiled hostility.

You can also get it in person at the archives.


It has to be done by mail order I believe. The Municipal Archives is closed to the public due to the pandemic as are most other document repositories in NYC and elsewhere,

Try contain all the information in a marriage certificate but also include a persons place of employment . But also remember there is no guarantee that the info is correct or complete.
Go to stevemorse.org and see is you can find the bride and grooms names to see if you have the correct couple.
 
In the meantime I will look up the record I have and see if there is any more relevant info that might be useful.  Also check on familysearch.org as they sometimes have marriage certificates online.

You can order the marriage license and application by giving them the names of the two people, the date ,the application number
And the borough .  I believe you can get order applications online and must include a check
as payment.
 
You can also get it in person at the archives.
Hope this helps.

Conversion records South Africa #southafrica

Anne Budlender
 

Does anyone know who holds Orthodox conversion records for South Africa? I have been trying for many years to find a record from 1907. The civil wedding took place in Cape Town but the Cape Town Beth Din says it only has records from 1947. The Johannesburg Beth Din doesn’t have this record. I have contacted individual shuls  where their children were married hoping the Rabbi or secretary may have noted sighting the conversion certificate. All to no avail. 

Could they have been held by the London Beth Din? 

Thank you for any help.

Re: Do these siblings have the same mother? A Yiddish given name question #names

"But the mothers are different. So what do you think, name variations or dad had a 2nd spouse:"

Sorry, but my ggrandmother was one of 20 kids born to the only Jewish couple in a tiny town. Her mother's name was different on each birth record. My ggrandmother was usually Rachel (also her mother's name on a different record), but she got married as Regina in NYC (another of her mother's names and a sister's name on her birth record. Reis, Rosa, every R name but not Rivka, and Teresa all were her mother's names.

So anything is possible,

Some time ago, I found online the landsmanshaft that buried one of my uncles and his wife.  I think I started with the death records and went backward.  Sorry I don't recall details now, but wanted you to know this is possible.

I have used the Explorer subscription for years, since I have living relatives in Israel, Great Britain, Australia, and even China. One woman in Ukraine found me, and then located the record of my uncle's discharge from the Kiev Hospital during World War I. I had known he served in the Russian Army in that war, but wasn't sure he had been wounded.

According to family lore my great great grandmother, gittle ABRAMOWITZ a widow with 4 children married an English widower with some 10 children and they lived in the Meah Shearim section in Jerusalem toward the end of the 19th cent.

There is a lot of confusion regarding the places and times that Gittle lived. After leaving Novarodok in Europe she lived for sometime in New Haven, and Jerusalem.

If the above sounds familiar to anyone I'd be happy to hear from you.
