Hello Phillip, I think that DNA testing would be a helpful start, if possible one male and one female. You may also find relatives this way, and maybe they would have some answers for you. I recognize Nagler as a Jewish name but there would Christians with that name also. Good luck and I hope you find some answers. Frayda Zelman NY.


Re: Ukrainian archives completes digitizing of Kiev Jewish vital records #ukraine #records

Grateful for you and your team. Might the labeling “Kiev” either include other nearby towns or reference such towns?  I ask because Kiev probably contained records for nearby communities and communities in the Oblast. I hope I’m phrasing that correctly.

You can also ask the cemetery if they have a next of kin with address or telephone mumber.
They won’t give it to you but they will either send a letter from you or even call and ask permission to give you the information.

I have done this twice successfully

Believe it or not I have great success searching on www.italiangen.org (or .com).  It allows to find birth, death, marriage and naturalization record indexes and forms to request a copy of the record.

You can try calling the cemetery - they might have that information on file. Or you can ask if someone can take a picture of the tombstone. Many cemeteries are accommodating although they might charge a small fee. You might also ask for the Death Certificate number - you can get copy at NY Health Dept  - https://www1.nyc.gov/site/doh/services/death-certificates.page

Nathan (Naftali) Hollinger was the pioneer of the family to come to the US around 1912..
He was born around 1866 in Austria Lukowizt (today in Ukraine) 
After him came his wife Fanny (Feige) with her 3 children in Jan 2,1913.,and than her sister with her family.
When his  wife arrived she declared that she is going to N. Hollinger.
I didn't find neither the record of his arrival, nor his Petition for Naturalization.
Maybe someone can help.

Thanks for this, however the link to the database does not seem to work.

Hi Philipp Jonathan, 

Have you tried DNA testing? Maybe that would help with your questions. I don’t know that much about it, but maybe others will chime in. 

I find your empathy moving and to your credit, although it is hard for me to understand how people cannot have that reaction—i.e., the current anti-semites, neo-Nazis, and Holocaust deniers. I am Jewish and have spent periods of my life thinking about the Shoah every day, too. It is just so hard to comprehend that something so terrible and so immense could be done by supposed human beings.  Anything else I say will seem trite and others have expressed it better—I can barely think of words for this. I am named for my grandmother’s sister, Leah Zabludowicz, z”l, murdered by the Nazi beasts in 1942. I am currently listening to testimony by one of her sons. So yes, I think about it every day, and try to remember the people who were tortured or murdered—read about them, remember their names, wonder about them as real people, imagine the communities before the war, and never forget. And I was not a survivor—one who has the actual memories tormenting them. 

Whether you have Jewish ancestry or not, you sound like a mensch. And that is what is really important.  And you certainly do have a complicated background and identity—be proud of who you are. 

May you have good luck in your searching, and peace no matter what you find.

Re: TOWN NAME/LOCATION: YAGASTOR #russia #general

I was going to make the same suggestion that it may be Augustowa.  My paternal grandparents were both from there, and the town is referred to as Yagastov in several documents (based on the Yiddish pronunciation of the name).  It was part of Russia until after the First World War.

You may be interested to know that the Yizkor Book of Augustowa has just been published in translation by Jewish Gen.

Re: Need help in locating a New York City Naturalization record #records #usa

Dahn Cukier
 

A few years ago and my memory about
specifics is fuzzy.  Familysearch OR Ancestry put out that
they have un-indexed records from a number of courts.
In the early years of the 20th century, many courts
could issue naturalization papers.

One day I found my grandmothers (B 1902) naturalization
papers, she put down that my grandfather (B 1901) was naturalized
on x date and the number was y number.

ONLY with the date and number was I able to search through a number of Southern NY State
(not the court called "southern" but by area) courts, turning page after page (online)
I would begin about a month before the date and continue to the date.

I did finally find the correct forms. Only required a few weeks of looking.

My experience shows that if you do not have the date of oath,
there is going to be very time consuming. First find which courts
are most likely to have been involved. Queens was 7 towns until 4
were consolidated into NYC, but probably one county court. The papers may
be in Nassau county.

Once I found the nat. record with the correct name, and ship.
I was able to find Ellis Island entry.

According to the 1925 census, Morris was naturalized in 1913, in what looks like Nassau County -- the county just east of Queens. The German Genealogy Group's naturalization database (https://www.germangenealogygroup.com/records-search/naturalizations.php) confirms that location and provides these details (but no date): Volume 4, Petition 623. The record is available from the Nassau County Clerk for $5. An order form is on the GGG site.

PUBLIC CONFERENCE:
preserving the footprint of the southern african jewish community online

This free public conference will take place on Zoom over three weekly sessions on 28 July, 4 August and 11 August from 7pm to 8.30pm (Australian Eastern States time).

 

The SA Jewish Museum and the Kaplan Centre for Jewish Studies at UCT invite you to explore the resources available and consider some of the solutions in use to recreate South African Jewish communities online. We will consider websites, social media platforms such as Facebook groups, Zoom reunions and also virtual cemeteries. We will hear from those in the field, about their processes and successes and what they feel still needs to be worked on, so that others may follow in their footsteps.   Both for dwindling and for still vibrant Jewish communities, many enthusiasts and professionals are endeavouring to celebrate and preserve the Jewish footprint online. Time is of the essence while sources can tell the stories firsthand. The recent tragic fire that engulfed UCT’s Jagger Library underlines the importance of securing heritage resources, both physically and digitally. So please join us for this first Community History Online (CHOL) Webinar.   Register here and you will be sent the zoom link. (Sessions will be recorded and uploaded on the CHOL playlist of the South African Jewish Museum.)
