Re: Etymology of the Rudman surname #names

Erica Fox Zabusky
 

I'm glad I caught this thread. I have Rudman ancestors from Zaslav/Izaslav, my great-aunt Vera was a redhead, don't have any photos of the Rudman scion, however. My mother's cousin, Viktor Rudman, who emigrated to Israel, provided me with a family tree that goes back to late 1800s/early 1900s, and I can check for Zalman and Aron Lieb. I have some relatives in my tree on geni.com, but am trying to figure out how to move to ancestry.com, as I recently ordered a DNA test. I look forward to connecting.

How to access the Residents Book for Jalowka and help with place name needed #records #belarus #poland

Mandy
 

Hi
 
I am new to Jewish genealogy and I have just started attempting to trace the family tree I am working on to its roots in Russia / Poland.  I have found reference in the USA based records to them having emigrated from Jalowka, Yalofka (which I understand is a different spelling for Jalowka) and Sloyky Grodno (I expect this is a misspelling).
 
I need some guidance on the following please:
 
(1) What place is Sloyky likely to be?  This spelling was was noted on a WWI draft registration. I cannot find a matching place name.  From the census records I know the person could not read or write and the form was completed by someone else.  So this is a likely a misspelling.   
 
(2) I understand Residents Books are an excellent source of information.  I am however struggling to find a place that explains what Residents Books are available to us for research, where they are located, if they have been translated, how to access them, the costs of accessing them etc. Is there an article or page on JewishGen or elsewhere that provides this information?   
 
(3) Currently I would like to look at the Residents book for Jalowka and for the place “Sloyky” (when I have the correct name).  Please can you advise how / where I can access these, if they have been translated and the cost of accessing them.  
 
I am researching principally the surname NOVICK.  The family emigrated from Russia to USA, where they mostly resided in Massachusetts. 
 
Any tips and advice are very much welcomed.

I have used facial recognition software from Family Search.  It is free with varying results .I'll try the other suggestions above.  
  1. Go to FamilySearch’s Discovery page, and click Compare-a-Face. You’ll be prompted to sign in to your FamilySearch account. If you don’t have an account, you can make one here.
  2. Upload or take a photo of yourself that you want to use to compare faces.
  3. If you don’t have photos of your family uploaded, the next page will prompt you to either upload a file or take a photo to compare your face to. Or, if you have photos already uploaded to your Family Tree, you will be taken to a page that shows a list of relatives and a percentage of how similar you look to them. Click through these images to see who your family doppelgängers are

Prisoner number 11060 Auschwitz #romania #holocaust #records

Awesome Properties
 

Hi,
Found my ggrandfather's  camp prisoner number  11060 between old records. We have very little info on him so far . We do know he survived the camps , lived to be liberated but sadly ,died on his way home. People that knew him met him along the way and saw he was very sick.
Can I trace him using his prisoner number to get any more info like in which camp he was liberated from and other tracing info? 
Thank you for your help.

Re: Proving that a man who died in Paris did not have children #france #general

Bernard Flam
 

Hi from Paris,
Dear Lea,
The first and most important point is set by Robert Roth, such a certification is impossible to established by principe.

Nevertheless, what do we have according to French records ?
You must be aware that privacy is protected at a level understandable by US citizens.
Every data is protected, even vital records less than 70 years old...

Another point is the possibility to have a child without being married,  letting the child with the maiden name of the mother...

If we think about an "official" couple, where could a child be recorded in France :
  • in the naturalization file of the parents if they have been naturalized later than the child's birth : this situation has been very common for Polish Jews emigrating in the 20's or 30's, surviving Shoah in France and naturalized in 45's - 55's period. 
  • in the wedding act of the parents if the child was born previously. A family booklet is given on this day where further children have a place to be registered. I attach a page with the "place" for registering children.
  • concerning child's birth, it's registered in the city of birth which could be any place, Paris or suburbs. This birth isn't registered on parents vital records, only on the family booklet.  The "fiche familiale d'état civil", as said on previous post by my friend Michele Ackerberg, is filed according to this family booklet : the city hall administration can't fill today any document without this booklet. 
  • census of 1946 is available at Paris' city archives but not on line : someone must go there. Later census aren't available due to privacy rules.
  • Searching the cemetery where Simon is buried and asking administration of this cemetery could be a clue to any family relation.
  • In fact, there is only one French administration which have all our personal and family (including wife and declared children) history : this is our "Securite sociale", our "Medicare" which cover all our medical costs at a so high level you can't even dream about. But of course, nobody can access its records...
  • five "Shalit" appear on French white pages : https://annuaire.118712.fr/?s=shalit 
That all folks !

It is not possible to prove that he was childless. My late wife had an uncle who was married and never had children. Long after he died I had a message asking me if I could suggest how to find a man who had been a musician and appeared on the stage. To cut short a long story I was able to prove that the lady in New Zealand who had been looking for her father for very many years, had finally traced him. The gentleman had fathered a child as the result of a fling with a hotel waitress whilst in Bournemouth one summer.

Interestingly Google Photos is a simple tool that does something of that sort. After uploading the photos, just enable people tagging https://photos.google.com/people
I had varying results, sometimes it hits phenomenally, sometimes it misses obvious matches:)

Question about English index to the Ottoman census records for the Ashkenazi community #general #israel

Stanley Naides
 

All,

 

I am looking for a male Feldman likely born in Odessa or nearby, who emigrated to Israel by 1880-1885. 

 

Does anyone know if there is available an English index to the Ottoman census records for the Ashkenazi community for censuses taken during the 1880 to 1920 period?

 

Thanks,

 

Stan Naides

 The only two ways to "prove" a man did not have children would be either
a) DNA test every child born during the time he lived there and for the next 9 months thereafter.  To be absolutely certain, this requires exhuming the bodies of children born in the time in question who have since died.  (DNA tests on their descendants are not absolute proof, because it's possible that the "descendants" aren't really theirs and their DNA is needed to confirm those relationships.)
b) Establish through medical records or medical tests that he could not have had children due to not having a body part needed or similar reasons.

Realistically, the most you can do is to check records and show that there are no surviving birth or baptism records that list him as the father.  This may satisfy the court.  However, it would still be possible that he fathered a child that was recorded as being someone else's child or as a child whose father was unknown or that he fathered a child that doesn't show up in any records because the records were destroyed, because it was born while the mother was in a country that didn't keep records of births, etc.

JGS of Pittsburgh Presents: Mark Halpern "Understanding Your Galitzianer Family through Vital Records" #poland #ukraine #records #galicia #austria-czech

Steve Jaron
 

The next program from the Jewish Genealogy Society of Pittsburgh

A great many Galician researchers have acquired copies of family records from repositories in Poland and Ukraine or online images provided by the State Archive or Genealogical organizations. Over the last twenty years, the work of Jewish Records Indexing—Poland and Gesher Galicia has made these records more readily available to all Galician researchers.

This session offers an in-depth examination of vital records along with a strategic framework to help researchers in acquiring Galician records to further their research. We will provide a historical perspective covering the regulations that governed Jewish record keeping. We will make sense of the regulations covering civil marriages that impacted the legitimacy and surnames of children. Close examination of sample birth, marriage, and death records will reveal the information contained in the records, identify the records having the most genealogical value, and discover surprises found in many of these records.

This program is made possible by support from the William M. Lowenstein Genealogical Research Endowment Fund at the Jewish Community Foundation.
