Major new Wysokie Mazowieckie records extraction project launched #poland

Aaron Roetenberg
 

Long-time Wysokie Mazowieckie and area researchers will be pleased to learn that Jewish Records Indexing - Poland has undertaken a huge new “Phase 3” project to fully extract all Wysokie Mazowieckie birth, marriage, death and Alegata records from 1826 to 1939 (births up to 1920). To carry out this major initiative, we also have acquired scans (digital images) of currently available Wysokie Mazowieckie records in the Łomża branch of the Polish State Archives (up to 1910).

 

As Town Leader, it would be my pleasure to send you a full description of the project and explain how you will be able to obtain the extracts of your family records as they become available and before they go online.

 

I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi,

My family is also from Szolos ( Vynohradiv in Hungarian). 
I recommend to contact Mr. Bert Huber, he is a local researcher from Ungvar. He arranged for me birth certificates ( with translations and apostilles). 
His email : huberbelay@...

All the best

David,

Just a note of a different possibility.  Someone else I know had the same family name.  I told her it was possibly a transliteration of rashe tevot (acronym) שו"ב, that would be pronounced that way.  But that the acronym was for the words, Shochet uVodek, שוחט ובודק, that is for a ritual slaughterer who also has to check that the animal was kosher.

So one could speculate that perhaps his father or an ancestor was a shochet.

Regards,

Best Way to Retrieve a Birth Certificate from Vynohradiv, Ukraine #ukraine #subcarpathia #records

jeremylehmann89@...
 

Hi,

A cousin of mine is seeking advice about how to retrieve her father's birth certificate from 1924 in what is now Vynohradiv, Ukraine. The city was called Velky-Sevlus, Czechoslovakia during the 1920s and has since been part of Hungary, the Soviet Union, and currently Ukraine. 

Is there anyone who specializes in retrieving documentation from this area of Europe (Subcarpathia)? This cousin contacted the website 
http://jewishfamilysearch.com/ but unfortunately did not receive a response from them.

Any recommendations you can provide would be greatly appreciated. 

Thank You,
Jeremy Lehmann

As you can see, only a tiny bit of first line is visible. I'm hoping someone more adept than I can locate the rest.

Online Databases: Searching For Family Members named RUBIN Who Lived in Israel #records #israel

jeremylehmann89@...
 

Hi, 

While researching my family, I have often had difficulty with finding information about cousins who lived in Israel. Are there databases online that contain information for people who lived in Israel?  

A recent example is a cousin named Hans Rubin (b. 1914 in Tarnow), who was the only Holocaust survivor from his family. In 1957, he provided Yad Vashem testimony for his parents (https://yvng.yadvashem.org/nameDetails.html?language=en&itemId=483057&ind=1; https://yvng.yadvashem.org/nameDetails.html?language=en&itemId=1410161&ind=0) and brother (https://yvng.yadvashem.org/nameDetails.html?language=en&itemId=1676524&ind=1). He is listed as living in Bat Yam, Israel. 

I would love to be able to learn more about Hans Rubin and whether he has any living descendants. 

Thank you with any help you can provide!

Holocaust Survivors and Victims #holocaust

Hank Lobbenberg
 

Both of my grandmothers were killed in the camps (or en route). My paternal grandfather was beaten by a mob in July 1938 and died of his injuries in August 1938.
One of my aunts lived in Germany all of her life and never left. She was hidden. Both of my parents who were born in Germany, left as refugees in 1939.
What of those Jews who fled to Russia, Sweden or Shanghai?
The classifications may seem simple to some but no to me.

Jewish nannies from Europe #general

philafrum
 

Genners,
 
A first cousin, once removed, immigrated to England from Hamburg, Germany, to serve as a nanny.  She arrived in Britain on August 26, 1939 on a domestic permit (one of the few means of entry open to Jews fleeing Nazi persecution). Are there any accounts about these Jewish nannies and/or other individuals who entered through the "domestic service permit scheme."
 
Thank you.

board of special inquiry record port of Philadelphia 1906 for Lena (Leie) Berlin (Eliasshewitz) #records #usa #general #lithuania

kosfiszer8@...
 

By chance I came across a record in Ancestry  of the board of special inquiry of the port of Philadelphia in 1906 regarding an entry record of the wife of Benjamin Berlin, that lived in Chicago, Illinois, using a passport with her maiden name rather than her married name. It tied all the family names and the places of origin and where they were living with the circumstances.of our ancestors coming to the USA at that time.The separation of the members of the family and poor resources comes to light clearly during the inquiry.

Re: Perplexing Mystery #records #usa

A reason why Shoshana Glickman's husband's family, Living in England,
was listed on his great-grandfather's American census forms could have
been that the great-grandfather, with poor language skills, quite
misunderstood the census question. He may have thought that he was
required to give details of his family, rather than of the inhabitants
of his house and given the names himself.

Gary asked about the OAC-790 form received from Social Security.  This form was the request for the Earnings Report within SSA.  It is no longer used.

Online references for the codes (which may have changed over time) are - 

L - A beneficiary leaves the US

M1 - Uninsured - Entitled to SS but refused Medicare

Re: Perplexing Mystery #records #usa

srg100@...
 

I'm still trying to work out how and why the whole family, wife and children, were included in my husband's great-grandfather's census entries in 1895 and 1910 in Connecticut.
The great-grandfather was definitely there in 1910, and could well have been there in 1895, but none of the rest of the family remembered being there. And there are no records of their arrival.
In fact his wife is quoted as saying that she'd never go to the US as she'd travelled enough from Europe to Ireland to Manchester, England and to Glasgow, Scotland!
Anyone have any ideas? 
Thanks!

Jim,

In order to regain citizenship, various proofs must be provided, such as proof of origin and proof of main residence in the territory of present-day Austria before the expulsion.
I have already carried out several projects for regaining citizenship. You are welcome to send me the available data. I will be happy to analyze this data and recommend the next steps.

Re: Hebrew name variants #names

Do you know for sure the name was Schmiel?  A handwritten Schmiel can look quite similar to Schmerl - if your knowledge comes only from a manuscript, then name could have misinterprted. They look quite similar.
