This is mostly for Peter Cohen:  If it's of any help, i had a great-aunt named Jennie, and the name on her gravestone transliterates as Scheine.

Impossible Brick Wall Next Steps DRAY? #usa

Dorann Cafaro
 

Hi Community:
 
I have tried for years to find/confirm the maiden name (and any additional information) for my 2nd great-grandmother. 
What I know:
  • name Hannah/Anna ???
  • b Austria/Germany 6 Jun 1821
  • died in Baltimore MD 29 Dec 1885
  • buried Har Sinai Cemetery Baltimore MD (Jewish)
  • married about 1852 to Sauel Samuel Grauer b 2 May 1814 Raudnitz an der Elbe Czech Rep as 1st child/son Leon born 1853
  • NO MARRIAGE OR DEATH CERTIFICATES ANYWHERE ON FILE including no death certificates for her children as MD did not start keeping records till much later & Har Sinai said they have no records
 
What I believe but can’t document:
  • surname DRAY - this is a confirmed family surname and it is in my grandmother’s name plus I have identified all other surnames of her family
  • she may be from Alsace as the surname Dray is often found there and my father had to have french speaking governess when a child with his grandmother living in the house
  • I have looked at DNA connections without success
 
Love any ideas where to go from here.

Thank you so much, David! I would be glad to forward what digital copies that I have of sources from Canada. I can't find any from Germany as yet. I have found information on how he immigrated to Canada. What other documentation would she require do you think?

Thank you again for your offer to help. I truly appreciate the information as well.

Oh Thank you so very much! Would you happen to know if any of these publications are accessible through other national libraries or archives in the US by any chance? I would be willing to pay for the articles to access them.

Thanks again!

Re: Russian army recruits 1880s #russia #general

If you look at the All Lithuanian Database 
Revision Lists there are many listed as conscripted and sometimes it lists parents and other family members. I have found lots of family that way.

Hope this helps .

There is a note in the Wikipedia article about conscription in Russia that only sons were not required to serve.  I didn't see anything there specifically about Jews.

My grandfather, Michael Goldsmith/Goldschmidt/Goldschmied told his grandchildren that he had been conscripted into the Russian Army (1900-04) and that he ran away , i.e. went AWOL) in about 1903-04.  I have not been able to figure out how to verify this.

death certificate of Mahle Scwarcz, marriage certificate of Yette Scwarcz and Pinkas Kurzer #poland

rottenberg
 

Hello,
I'm doing a genealogy search about my family. They lived at the end of 19th century and beginning of 20th century in Przeworsk.

Between september 1905 and november 1905 2 events took place :
  • Przeworsk, September 3rd 1905 : death of my great grandmother Malhe Schwarcz
  • Przeworsk, October or November 1905 : wedding of her daughter Yetta Schwarcz with Pincas Kurzer from Oleszyce.
I sent in this mail a copy of the marriage certificate in poor condition.


Can you tell me how I can get a copy of both certificates ?
 
I have tried unsuccessfully at Przemysl archives (https://www.szukajwarchiwach.gov.pl/)

Thank you very much for your advice.
Best regards
Michel Rottenberg

ENDE and EISEN connection #poland #usa #israel #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

My wife's grandfather, Zvi Hirsch EISEN of Zloczow, Poland, was in
correspondence with the ENDE family. As far as I know, two ENDE
brothers, Avigdor and another brother to Israel before 1948 ( as a
teenager I had met Avigdor, who was a friend of my grandfather in
Jerusalem). I believe that the well known Israeli pianist, Bracha EDEN
is a member of this family.

Zvi Hirsch EISEN came to New York from Poland shortly before W.W. 2
and died about 1953.

Does anyone know of a family connection between the above ENDE and
EISEN families.

Re: The name Wochenkind - #poland

Reuven Mohr
 

this makes sense, to register a boy as 'Wochenkind', since at the time of registration, which usually happens less than a week after birth, boys have no name yet. Traditionally the name is given at the circumcision, and till then there is nothing to enter into the name column, or in your case 'Wochenkind'. I think this was more a decision of this local clerk than a general regulation.

Andreas, Connie,

you are correct that Mrs. Asche is the expert but she has retired end of August. Another expert is Dr. Ernst Otto Bräunche but he is also retired.
Nevertheless, I would recommend that you write to the municipal archives, archiv@.... 
Since I am in contact with Mrs. Asche I can forward her requests (privately) but I doubt that she is able to help without having all the papers.

Good luck and best regards,

Hello Ronald,
Since her parents were Polish citizens, your mother was also considered a Polish citizen.

Strategies that Worked!

a SCJGS member double presentation

with experienced researchers, Shirley Ginzburg & Lee Jaffe

Sunday, October 10, 2021, 1 pm Pacific Zone Time

Free for Everyone

Program Descriptions

The Awful Truth About Mike And Fred or Solving A Family Mystery! with Shirley Ginzburg

Shirley will share about 25 photos and documents that plot the zig-zag route to how she solved the mystery.  One important point for everyone is that the proof documents are not solved in chronological order...which means frustrating dives in the  wrong  direction, often.  The common tools/sources plus a couple obscure ones revealed a lot about the career of a popular bandleader.
 
Looking For My Great-grandfather, Joseph Schwartz and Finding 300 New Cousins with Lee Jaffe

Joseph Schwartz's life in the US is well-documented: yet nothing certain has been found about him beforehand.  Lee will report on his ongoing work to uncover his great-grandfather's past, from searching traditional sources to pursuing leads from DNA testing, concluding with a progress report on efforts to launch an "ancestry project" in collaboration with potential cousins.

Speaker Bios

Lee Jaffe was introduced to family research in the 1980s when he was given two family trees: he has been expanding his family tree and his skills ever since, most recently exploring DNA testing.  Lee was a librarian at UC Santa Cruz before retiring in 2014.


Shirley  Ginzburg inherited her mother's cache of shorthand notes, photos and love for family research while interviewing many of their elders.   Shirley's research  stretches over a dozen family lines, across American cities, Belarus, the western Ukraine, and Poland.  She enjoys writing vignettes about her relatives and their struggles to adapt through poverty and wars, the Depression, relocation, loss and triumphs, too.

Soleayl, Galicia, Austria? #galicia #ukraine

amitch1066@...
 

Would anyone know of a town named Soleayl?  One of my ancestors supplied this as his birth town on his NA Declaration.  I know for a fact that this part of my family came from the Sokal, L'viv area (Ukraine).  I have his birth record and this town is not mentioned.  Could he have meant Sokal?
