Recent lecture on TB sanatoria in the west #usa #jgs-iajgs

I believe one of the JGS from the west coast or SW had a lecture recently about genealogical research related to the TB sanitarian? Can anyone help me locate it?

Thanks,

family trees - who copied my information #general

I just checked the family tree section and saw that several people had
information from my family tree. There is a code number there, but I don't
know how to contact these people. No one but my sister and I called my
grandmother Oma (which means grandmother) yet all these people had her
name and Oma, so I know the material came from me  I have no idea how
these people are linked to me or why they have my data on their tree.
Since I know all my 8 second cousins - no first cousins, they must be
related further back - before 1800.

I recently downloaded My Family Tree, which seems to be fairly decent, but it is only for Windows, if I understand correctly.  Personally, I would not want to work on an Android system for complex data like this.  I like that this program stays on my computer, not in public.

You may be able to find this at newspapers.com, which requires a subscription.  A friend who has a subscription found an article about my great-uncle who was killed in a NYC accident when he was, according to the death certificate crushed "between two cars," which we think were trollies or trains of some type.  She also found information on two family friends for me.  You may be able to access this site without a subscription through a library that has a subscription.

A good source for searching old New York newspapers is the fultonhistory.com site, or the related https://fultonsearch.org
There might have been something in a smaller NYC newspaper about the accident. You'll be able to tell what area of the city the accident took place, by which hospital the person was taken to, and perhaps locate a likely newspaper that way.

My understanding is that in New York City, newspaper obituaries were not very common, unlike in smaller cities and towns. Since Edward McMahon was Irish Catholic, he may have had an obituary in a newspaper for that community.

As for the wife Rose Bernstein McMahon, she would have been living with her husband at the time of his death, not someplace else. Their marriage certificate, however, would have listed her own address just prior to her marriage. 

You mention that she lived in Binghamton NY at some point. Do you mean that her parents and siblings were living in Binghamton at the time of her marriage? If this is the case, it is highly doubtful that her parents would have run an obituary for their son-in-law, since in your previous post, you said that no one ever spoke of this brief marriage. Running an obituary in a Binghamton newspaper would have been tantamount to announcing to all neighbors and relatives "Our daughter married a Gentile." (except a more derogatory Yiddish word would have been used). But it's still worth looking for, because you never know.

Anyone can search in UK National Archive for people who were in the Uk 29 September 1939,  This was when a registration of everybody was taken to provide Identity Cards and Ration Books, after the introduction of our National Health Service these registers were used until 1991 for everybody and kept updated locally, but for 1939 they included nearly everyone.  Many Search Engines have this information of people who would be known from their birth date to be over 100 years of age.  There are useful search notes on the National Archive web pages. which would have thought were easily found wherever you are on this planet.

Does anyone have any information on the following on the Journey of a Kinder (our late father)
We have done my own research but unable to find any details

After general KT arrival in Harwich ( in our case Jan. 1939), our father , Kurt Ehrmann (11.7.1922) age 16,  was
relocated from Dovercourt (holding area during harsh winter) to Thirlby/Grange in North York (approx. 8 hours north)?
We believe he was moved to a farm owned and operated by a "Mrs. Hebden" (this is an artifact I was able to recover-see attached) which we believe is in the Spring of 1939.  
I would be grateful if anyone knows of this area or any other details pertaining to these events.
Thank you in advance.

A tree on MyHeritage for the Brahinsky family says Rachel died Apr 9 1952 in Toulouse.  No source is given but this provides a path to pursue.  On Geneanet, there is at least one tree viewable with the free membership, and one tree owner  has the last name Brahinsky and may have more information.

I had a cousin who came to the US from Augustow, Suwalki gubernia, Russia, like the rest of the family. I knew a lot of the family as many kept in touch after they came to the US.
 
Imagine my surprise when I got his naturalization papers. He was born in Marseilles, now France.
 
Apparently they went to Marseilles during the rebellion/famine/cholera epidemic of the 1860s, then went back to Augustow.
 
So anywhere is possible, as my family in that time frame was from Augustow District, Kingdom of Poland.

Anybody can change anything on the profiles that FamilySearch has on their web site. Some people enter things in Spanish or another language, and I have to keep my fingers off the keyboard, as I want them in English, but they have as much right as I do to have things in whatever language. People also get things mixed up, and if I know that somebody is wrong about a person's birth or whatever, I will fix it. But births for immigrants can be different on different documents, so I would only fix an approximate date with a Social Security of JRI-PP (even better) birth date if I have it. FamilySearch does not take 'circa' or 'about' dates.

Everybody doing research needs to have records at home, on their own devices, where they can keep things safe (and backed up). A genealogy program can keep a lot of information that the web apps don't keep, and also the research notes along with them. I make 'Events' for documents I find, so I know what a document says and where I found it; I could identify a document's source in a Source, but the events are very handy and versatile.

Re: Chestnut Street Cemetery, Cincinnati #usa

Elise Cundiff
 

There is a partial listing of the graves on Find -a - Grave (Chestnut Street Cemetery)  but none for her.  However, there are several headstones listed that are Hebrew only and have not been translated (on that site) so you might take a look at those photos.
The listing on Jewish Cemeteries of Cincinnati Jewish Cemeteries of Greater Cincinnati - Jewish Cemeteries of Greater Cincinnati (jcemcin.org) seems more complete, but also has untranslated Hebrew inscriptions.  There is no Silverstone or Harris.  This site mentions that this cemetery was filled up during the epidemic.   You can search all of the area Jewish cemeteries on this site, including wild card searches of any variation of her first and last names that you can think of - such as possible yiddish or Hebrew variations.

Re: I wish to hire a DNA analyst to interpret the results of a Big Y-700 FTDNA Sample #dna

adina@...
 

Hi Jay,
Big Y is very unlikely to give you the answer that you seek. If you want to determine a possible surname, it's going to take paper trail research and potentially an autosomal DNA test. If the individual came in as Franklin according to records, my experience tells me someone came here before him and adopted that surname.

If DNA is of interest, I'd recommend a test at Ancestry and then upload to FTDNA, MyHeritage, and Gedmatch.

Hope that helps.

Many of the PA naturalization records can be found on Fold3.  Also I believe that there are some on Ancestry.  These are full declaration and application copies not indexes.

Family search is a collaborative tree meaning anyone can see anything except living people.  AND it also means that anyone can add, change, attach and delete any document person or relationship.  You basically won't have any control of your research.  Myheritage will allow you to keep your own research.  My preference is Ancestry though I have used all the platforms.   I don't recommend researching on a phone.

The Big Y tests (500 and then 700) place the tester’s Y-DNA at the end of a twig on a small branch of a larger branch of a still larger branch etc of the Y-DNA tree.  Some lucky testers will discover that there are other testers on their tiny twig, and those other testers may be relatives within genealogical time (or not).  For most of us, I suspect, we will just find ourselves alone on our own little twig.  For me, Big Y has been genealogically useless, but for others it has been helpful.  For all of us, it would be nice if FTDNA provided a plain language explanation for how to interpret the data, which FTDNA displays in a quirky manner.  We shouldn’t have to hire experts to tell us what it means.

Need help translating city name in 1848 polish marriage record #translation #poland

arnold friedman <afriedman21@...>
 

hi,

attached is a 1848 wedding record for LEJZOR FRYDMAN second marriage.
Appreciate if someone could help me translate and locate his birth
city mentioned in the record.

I do not need the whole record translated, just the birth city
information for lejzor.

The family in that time frame was in the przytzk, gmina stara
blotnica, glowaczow area north of radom, poland.

it is possible lejzor could have been born in this area, or elsewhere
and moved here with his parents when he was young. At 18 years old,
at the time of his first marriage, he lived in village bobrek.

Thank you for your help.

best,
