Re: Was Max GORDON (1913-1971) really married? #usa #general

David,

City directorieshow Rose P. GORDON and Max GORDON living at 30 Myrtle from 1942 - 1945. Beginning in 1950 at 30 Myrtle are Rose P. BAUM and Leopold Baum.

If Rose and Max were married it was only for a few years.  In 1948 Rose PETLUCK married Leopold BAUM.  

If Rose used her maiden name on the 1948 manifest than she was either divorced by 1948 or Rose and Max were never legally married.

An obit for Leopold BAUM gives their daughter's name as Penny B Moldofsky.
 
Good luck in your search,

1921 United Kingdom Census Release #records #unitedkingdom #announcements

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

  

 

The 1921 United Kingdom census will be released on January 6, 2022. This was announced by the IAJGS Records Access Alert on October 30, 2021.  To access the digitized census to view and search you will need to create a free Findmypast account at: 

 https://www.findmypast.com/help/articles/4409232773649-do-i-need-to-sign-up-to-a-findmypast-account-to-view-the-1921-census-

 

While you can search for free, to view the records one is required to pay  on per view basis using Findmypast micropayments…see: https://www.findmypast.com/help/articles/360009238938-how-much-will-it-cost-to-access-the-1921-census-online-

 

In the US these charges will be $3.50 for a transcript and $4.90 for an image.

 

For prices in the United Kingdom, Ireland an Australia see:

UK https://www.findmypast.co.uk/help/articles/360009238938-how-much-will-it-cost-to-access-the-1921-census-online-

Ireland: https://www.findmypast.ie/1921-census

Australia:  https://www.findmypast.com.au/1921-census

 

You will find all the usual things one expects in a modern census: the name, age, sex and birthplace of everyone in a household; their relationship to the head of household; and the marital status for all individuals over 15. New features of the 1921 census are: Divorce was an available as a marital status; children under 15 could report whether their mother, father, or both were dead; and if a person was employed their occupation, employer and the employer’s address were included.

 

You will be looking at the last census available for England and Wales for 30 years as the 1931 census was destroyed by fire and the 1941 census wasn’t taken due to the Second World War. You will encounter a population deeply impacted by the 700,000 men who were killed during the First World War.

 

To read the previous IAJGS Records Access Alert postings about the UK 1921 census and more, go to the archives of the IAJGS Records Access Alert at:  http://lists.iajgs.org/mailman/private/records-access-alerts  You must be registered to access the archives.  To register go to: http://lists.iajgs.org/mailman/listinfo/records-access-alerts  and follow the instructions to enter your email address, full name and which genealogical  organization with whom you are affiliated   You will receive an email response that you have to reply to or the subscription will not be finalized.

Shelley,

Good thought, but to claim spousal allowance from the military she would have had to present the marriage record.  My mom had to do that when my dad entered The U.S. Army at the start of WW11.

I recall her story clearly because my mom said she thought the Army would give the marriage license back to her, but they kept it!  
 
Best regards,

I researched Louis Gordon trial for arson on the New York Times and other newspapers and Zucker is mentioned in some of the articles. Louis Gordon went to Sing Sing and was pardoned by NY governor. His son later was a Judge. The family never changed the family name.

Re: Sending money to Poland in 1880s #general #usa #poland

A bit different time frame, but my Zeidi who immigrated to Chicago in 1913 sent money to his wife in the Warsaw ghetto via American Express.  She received the funds regularly until she, my uncle and mother were allowed to leave when the Germans lifted the siege of Warsaw in 1916.  They then came over on second class tickets (that were paid off over time).

Danzig Altschottland 1838-1846 marriages now searchable on JewishGen #germany #poland #danzig #gdansk

Logan Kleinwaks
 

A small marriage register from the Altschottland Jewish Community (Danzig) covering marriages from 27 May [1838?] – 28 May 1846 is now searchable via JewishGen's Unified SearchGermany Database, and Poland Database. You may find it helpful to restrict your search by Town = Danzig, in addition to whatever surname you are looking for.

Altschottland is presumably the community to which the new couple belongs, but this is not explicit. Only one entry mentions a spouse belonging to another Danzig community, but many entries involve spouses from outside Danzig (see Remarks and Residence fields). Parents' names are, unfortunately, not given except for the father's name of a previously-widowed bride. All information has been transcribed. There are 70 entries.

This marriage register is file Da/753 at the Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People in Jerusalem (CAHJP), and was acquired by the JewishGen Danzig/Gdańsk Research Division through the generosity of our donors. All transcription and proofreading was done by volunteers.

Several additional Danzig datasets will be posted online very soon. Others require varying amounts of proofreading or transcription and proofreading to complete. If you might like to volunteer to get Danzig records online quicker, please email me. We especially need volunteers who can read old German handwriting (Kurrent).

Hello Marylin,
I have seen in the Gelbinovna list people from Khashchevatoye, and now I heard that there were also people from "my"shtetel Khashchevatoye in Gershonovka. Could it be possible to get the list of these settlers (in Gershonovka) or even better, a link to the Russian website where these lists were published?

Cypora's Echo: Mothers, Daughters and a Holocaust Legacy

 

Speaker: Judith Greenberg, Ph.D.

Judith Greenberg had been writing and teaching about trauma, literature, and women’s acts of resistance for years before she discovered that the story of the last days of the Jews of Siedlce, Poland, her family’s ancestral hometown, had been recorded contemporaneously by her own relative, Cypora Jablon Zonszajn. In the fall of 1942, Cypora understood that the only chance for her baby daughter, Rachel, lay outside the ghetto. She entrusted Rachel to her Catholic friends and wrote her testimony, now held at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.    
 
Judith grew up knowing Rachel, but it was only in 2002, when Judith read Cypora’s testimony and saw a photo of Cypora holding baby Rachel, that she began to ask questions about her cousin’s history as a hidden child, her mother’s past, and the intergenerational process of transmission of this story. 
 
Over the next twelve years, Judith traveled to Poland, where she met the friends who had saved Rachel and discovered a vast archive of prewar and wartime photos of Cypora and Rachel. Relying on her background analyzing trauma writing, Judith conjoins her research with an analysis of Cypora’s writing and with a contemplation of her postmemories and the many roles of mothers, daughters, and shared parenting in this story.
 
Judith Greenberg holds a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from Yale University and teaches as a part-time faculty member at the Gallatin School of Individualized Study at New York University. She is the editor of Trauma at Home: After 9/11 (University of Nebraska Press, 2003).  Her publications include articles on works by Virginia Woolf, Patrick Modiano and others; blogs for the Huffington Post, and a contribution to Studies in American Jewish Literature's Special Issue: Trump and the "Jewish Question."  Her 2019 trip to Siedlce is documented in The Forward at https://forward.com/life/440510/researching-intergenerational-transmission-of-trauma-led-me-to-poland-in/ and in The Forum for Dialogue's video: “Taking on the Story” at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smcKUZ3UcYQ. Judith plans to publish her manuscript, Cypora’s Echo.

Jewish community in Salem Conn #usa

Marc Lipoff
 

Hello,

I’ve been researcher my family (Schaeffer), who lived in Salem, Conn in the early 1900s. They appear have owned a few hundred acres of farm land, and to have been working it. In looking at the US censuses, there are many Jewish surnames listed. I’ve done a quick search and can’t find out any info on the Jewish community in Salem (currently, there seems to be none). Does anyone have info on the area, or know where I can research it more?
