Marcia,

If either of them naturalized in 1929, or after, than a photo will be on the nat papers.  Not all nat papers are on-line, but many are, so try searching their names at:
www.familysearch.org

Good luck in your search,

Sherri Bobish

I've uploaded 4 handwritten documents to ViewMate.  They are each one page.  

I believe they are  related to the Alperstein family (Rabbi Abraham Alperstein or his wife Bertha/Beila Alperstein).  I would love to get complete translations of each document.  Any help you can provide would be much appreciated.

You can view and add your translations by clicking each link.  Here is a list of the 4 documents:

1917 bill from Emanuel Gross, first paragraph in Hebrew (rest is Yiddish): https://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/viewmateview.asp?key=95328.

1923 note from Rabbi Glick (Palestine): https://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/viewmateview.asp?key=95333

Re: Russian army recruits 1880s #russia #general

My family story is that my great grandfather bought papers under the name Fishel Meyer to avoid the Czarist conscription.  He came to the US in 1884.  According to family information our original family name was Perchik, and that he had two sisters (1/2) who also came to the US.  One sister has living descendants that match me on DNA as expected based on our original name being Perchik.

Hello Marcia,
I have Barnofsky/Bartnovsky on my family tree.  They came from a town called Wolkowysk.
I believe most are related.  Please feel free to contact me.

If your relative applied for U.S. citizenship, there may be a record of her application for citizenship with the federal government. Have you considered going down that avenue?

Re: Boston US Synagogue Records 1886 #records

paulmoverman@...
 

Good Afternoon Dave,

I am curious where you located an index showing a marriage between Rachel and Joseph H. Hausman.

There is only one record of a marriage for Rachel Simon in Boston in 1886.  I am attaching a copy of the record that indicates she married Charles Pizansky.  The parents names appear on the record.

There is also only one marriage record for Joseph H. Hausman in Boston in 1886.  He married Anna B. Emerson.  Both of these records are accessible for free on familysearch.org and are part of "Massachusetts Marriages, 1841-1915."

I hope that this is helpful.

The signatures are those of the two informants and the clerk. The parents were not present.
In case of illiteracy there could be a note on a certificate that so and so was not able to undersign.

Yes it forms part of the "legal basis" for their government.  I wish some action, more than words, could be taken against Poland and Hungary.

Hungarianization of last names in Hungary, 1890s #hungary

Jake Jacobs
 

I am looking for information on how my g'grandfather chose to change his last name from GOLDMANN to GONDOS in Hungary in the mid-1890s.  As an employee of the Hungarian government (a teacher at a Jewish school in Erdobenye), the government "encouraged" him to Hungarianize his name.  Does anyone know how a particular name might have been chosen?

Decades later, a cousin also was "encouraged" to change his last name, in his case because the name was German/Jewish (EISENBERGER).  The cousin  was presented a list of options to choose among.

Was that also the case in Hungary in the 1890s, that they were presented a list of options?

Archival photographs of Bialystok Jewish life, pre-1930 #poland #photographs

WORLD JEWISH COMMUNITIES: BIALYSTOK, POLAND.

Here is a series of twenty-four photographs that appeared from
1924-1927 in the Forverts (Jewish Forward newspaper), all of people or
scenes from Bialystok. Some of the photos, however, were taken nearly
twenty years before they were published, i.e. at the time immediately
after the 1906 pogrom in Bialystok. Here is the link:

The book "Juden in Karlsruhe" is not available anymore, out of print. But you can download a digital version.
Unfortunately, I forgot where I downloaded it, but I have it (Hardcopy of course and as a pdf). It is too big to send it via email but I can upload it to Google and send the link to whoever would like to have it.
Just send me your email addresses and I will make it available for you, together with a few more books about Jews in Karlsruhe and Baden.

Re: Seeking any descendants of Herscu Grinberg/Aprivei #romania #general

Hi.

My grandfather on my mother's side was a Greenberg who lived in Odessa. The only hint I have is that he may have come from the "high priests." If you have a tradition that your Greenberg ancestors were Cohanim then we could be related.

Re: Dutch to English Translation #translation

David Harrison
 

I read this translation with interest.  My understanding of the implication of the signatures is that the named parents could not read.  I was told by an archivist that at that period, unless you could by yourself read the document, you could not sign it.  At the archive where I received that information many of the documents that related to my family had been signed by the Town Clerk and by the Postmaster.  The two signatures on this document would seem to me to be following a similar logic and giving you additional family information.
