Family History Today: Exploring your Canadian Connections

Thursday, August 12, 2 PM Eastern Time

 

Did your ancestors pass through Canada on their way to the U.S., or did a branch of your family settle in Canada? It’s fairly common for American Jews to have some Canadian connections in their family. Bill Gladstone, a professional genealogist, publisher, and author based in Toronto, will provide an overview of major resources for Jewish genealogy research in Canada, including censuses, naturalizations, immigration records, border crossings, and city directories.

This program is sponsored by the Ackman & Ziff Family Genealogy Institute at the Center for Jewish History. It is funded, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

Re: What to do with Romanian Passports #romania

annearmel@...
 

Make sure you have the document conserved, not restored. There is a difference. If you care about maintaining original worn look, then you need conservation, which also helps monetary value. Restoration, which tries to make an item look clean and new, usually lowers the monetary value of a piece. If you want to donate, ask the place what they want--my guess is they want it to be as original as possible. Look for a company that has expertise in paper. There is an association that you could google for places in your area and also learn about credentials. The cost for conservation (I don't know about restoration) is usually hourly. My example: About 20 years ago, I used The Conservation Center in Chicago to conserve a crayon drawing that was 8-1/2 x 11 inches and had a tear. The artist had drawn it in his early "starving" years on cheap paper, which contains naturally destructive acid.  To have the acid removed and rice paper used behind the damaged torn area, I spent about $200 at that time. Passport paper is unique, but someone could conserve it.

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

Shelley Mitchell
 

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

Need an Help about arrival of Nathan (Naftali) Hollinger to NY #usa

Shimy Karni
 

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 a lot,
Shimi Karni

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

I have reported it to the AJR (of which I am a member).

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.

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

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.

I have been trying but have been unable to locate a New York City Naturalization record for Morris Malvin, and would welcome assistance.  In the 1910 US Federal Census, he is listed by that name.  He is 26 years old (b. 1884 in Russia, I believe in Warsaw), married, with two young children, living at Jamaica and Hempstead Turnpikes, Queens, NY.  His arrival year is listed as 1906 (I haven’t been able to find an arrival record either), and his citizenship status is “Alien”.  On his WWI Draft Registration Card, dated September 1918, and in the 1920 US Federal Census he is listed as “Naturalized”.  At those times he is 34 and 36 years old, and is living at Mott Avenue in Far Rockaway, Queens, NY.  I have searched (as best I am able) on Ancestry, and have searched both the New York Southern and Eastern District Court documents available on Family Search, without finding his Naturalization record.  Family lore says that his name in Europe may have been Malawanczyk, and I have searched as well on that name.  I would be grateful for any suggestions or recommendations.

Thank you.
