Go to RAOGK.org.  (Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness).  They have volunteers who do these things for people. I used to do it before I moved from New Orleans.  Click on the state and take it from there.  It gives the random acts that each volunteer will do and it contacts them for you.  Good luck!

The name Shmaryahu and Schmiel are two distinctive names. While Shmaryahu שמריהו is a Hebrew name, Schmiel is the Yiddish variant of Shmuel, or Samuel in English.

Re: Request for suggestions as to where I can get documentary proof of my Jewish ancestry? #austria-czech

In order to help you further, we would need more details: full name, date and place of birth of your father and grandfather, where they lived and at what times. 
What steps did you take util now to get documents? Do you have your grandfather's birth certificate?

Good evening,

See for more information regarding Isidoor VAN DAM (Enschede, the Netherlands March 22, 1876-Enschede July 9, 1952) and Clara SAMSON (Herben, Germany October 4, 1880-Enschede January 20, 1964) and their children: www.geni.com and www.familysearch.org

Thanks George! So strange that genders would be complete wrong.  The third child being a neighbor or different relative is an interesting suggestion as well.

Request for suggestions as to where I can get documentary proof of my Jewish ancestry? #austria-czech

jimandann.newmark@...
 

The factory in Brno https://www.bam.brno.cz/en/object/c118-stiassny-and-neumark-textile-factories-vlnena was co-founded by my great-grandfather Paul Neumark. My grandfather was Austrian, and recent changes in Austrian law https://www.wien.gv.at/english/administration/civilstatus/citizenship/citizenship-ns-victims.html mean that I can potentially claim citizenship on the basis of my grandfather being the "persecuted ancestor" (my great-uncle committed suicide on the day of the National Socialist invasion https://hansard.parliament.uk/Commons/1939-03-20/debates/233c2e93-5e8e-49b3-8afd-577637cb3bb4/Czechoslovakia ) and my father remembers the Gestapo arriving at the house to arrest his father on the same day. However, I have been told by the Austrian government researchers that this is only a "hint" of my Jewish background and that ideally documentation should be provided.  So far, I have not been able to provide this - any suggestions would be welcome.

Bob,

There are many fraternal societies named in honor of Theodor Herzl.

If you contact the cemetery they may be able to give you the full name of the society, and whether it still exists.

Check local newspapers from the week of his death as the society may have put an obit in the newspaper.

You might also look up the society's name in an American Jewish Yearbook from that era.

Regards,

Sherri Bobish


Re: Perplexing Mystery #records #usa

Michele Lock
 

For the years near 1920, have you checked city directories, to find the address of the family in those years (say, 1917 to 1923)? You can check to see if the address in the 1920 census is the same, or at least nearby.

Also, is the occupation of the great grandfather in the 1920 census what you would expect, based on other records that you have for him?

I've seen names and genders and occasionally ages for children mixed up. A son named Barney was mis-heard by the census-taker as 'Bonnie' and so is listed as a girl. I've also seen a child left out entirely, even though I know they were very much alive.

As for the mystery third child - it could be a child that died young, that you don't know about, though perhaps you can look for a birth or death certificate or other record for that name It may also be a relative's child that was living temporarily with the family. My mother was routinely sent to spend entire summers with her aunt in the 1930s, and I can see how she might have ended up listed as part of the aunt's family.

Amy,

My interpretation:

Notions (works for himself.)
Bald
Brown Wig

You can check on his occupation by looking at census records, and old city directories.

It looks like he may show up in 1919 St. Louis directory, at same address as on draft card, as Samuel MITCHELL, listed under:
confectioners (retail.)
Name: Samuel Mitchell
Residence Year: 1919
Street Address: 923 O Fallon
Residence Place: St Louis, Missouri, USA
Publication Title: St Louis, Missouri, City Directory, 1919
There is a Samuel MITZEL in 1910 directory (different address), occuption:  tin.
Name: Samuel Mitzel
Residence Year: 1910
Street Address: 1314 N 9th
Residence Place: St Louis, Missouri, USA
Occupation: Tin
Publication Title: St Louis, Missouri, City Directory, 1910

Re: Borouchowitz Family, Kovno #lithuania

Michele Lock
 

For my family from Kovna gubernia, the name Aaron is often in Jewishgen listings as Aron and as Orel (Yiddish nickname for Aaron).

I also second looking for listings for all of Kovna gubernia. I have found in ship manifests and other US records that my family members would say they were from Kovna, when they were actually from smaller towns in the gubernia.

Re: Grandfather's grocery store: seeking possible date #usa

Michele Lock
 

The notices in newspapers for when a business first opens are particularly useful. Other notices for when a business was bought and sold are also relevant; I've been able to use them to track relationships between possible family members.

The ads placed in newspapers are fairly easy for Newspapers.com to pick up, because ads back then were so text-heavy, and often contained the name of the business owner.

Two other sources for searchable older newspapers are Fultonhistory.com and the US Library of Congress' Historical American Newspapers.

One thing I have found - smaller newspapers back then would print news of relatively small events that took place even several counties away. For instance, I found the notice of my grandparents' marriage license, taken out in Hagerstown Maryland in 1913, in the Harrisburg, PA newspaper.

Re: Looking for three Canadian Wynne brothers (originally Winograd/Winogradski) #canada

Hello. It appears that they changed the family name to Wyne (not Wynne). A Google search provides several helpful links. The Jewish Museum of BC (British Columbia) has an oral-history interview with Saul. Via Ancestry.com (and jewishgen.org -- JOWBR), you can find a link to photo of Sam's gravestone, which confirms that his father's name was Reb Moshe haKohen. Sam and Saul lived in Edmonton AB.

I have a family in which a son was named Amandar, after his grandfather.  One census record lists the child as female, Amanda, but other census records list the boy correctly..  Census takers are human, and where there is human activity, there will be human error.

Hi, Sharon -

I'm headed to Washington Cemetery tomorrow to take pics of a family stone and can try to take a photo of a foil imprint based on Lee Jaffe's recommendation. Let me know if that would be helpful. It's a one-day offer only: I'm in from Kauai and hitting the cemetery tomorrow, so good timing on your post.

Best,
