Willesden Grave Photo #unitedkingdom #photographs

Isabel Cymerman
 

I am trying to obtain a photo of my great uncle's grave in Willesden Cemetery in London.  Here is the listing:  Willesden Cemetery, Section QX, Row 9, Plot H5, burial date 20/4/1939, listed as "GOODMAN DRAUSNICK o/w ROSE".  Would that be convenient for anyone in London.

Thank you!

Russian passport from the turn of the 20th century were written in three languages, Russian, German and French. 

I translated the German, which says this.

Show this passport, [belonging to] Berger (?) or citizen Chaim Wondrow, to go abroad.  

This passport, with the imprint of the seal, is used to journey abroad without hinderment.

Re: Naturalization Petitions - US District Court, Eastern District of New York (Brooklyn)- #records

Paul,

The collections on FamilySearch are named by the source, in this case NARA.  If FamilySearch were to rename them, it would become confusing.

The good news is that it is easy to reformulate your search to find the correct collection.  The secret is to use the "keyword" option of the FS catalog (https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/search ).  I always do a search in the format <jurisdiction> <record type>.  In your case, this becomes "New York Eastern District petition".  This specific search returned 17 results and the "Final petition and citizenship papers (New York), 1865-1958" collection is the third result returned.

Regards,
David Oseas


Naturalization Petitions - US District Court, Eastern District of New York (Brooklyn)- #records

Paul Moverman
 

PROBLEM:  After spending many days attempting to locate a Naturalization Petition from the USDC EDNY online to no avail I wrote an email to NARA in Manhattan for assistance.  Instead of ordering through the NARA Reproduction Service they pointed out to me that the records do exist on familysearch.org.  They even provided me with a direct link to the file I was searching for.  That is when I discovered why I had not been able to locate the file (even using the familysearch.org catalog search feature.  I am posting this information so that anyone searching for Brooklyn (Kings County) Petitions for Naturalization will not have the experience that I had.

SOLUTION:  Once I had downloaded my file I observed the FHL Film number and then searched for that film number using the catalog search.  The problem suddenly became very obvious, the record group is on familysearch.org entitled, "Final petition and citizenship papers (New York), 1865-1958."  This record group contains digital images of 1,572 reels of 35mm microfilm with no reference to Brooklyn, Kings County or Eastern District of New York in the title, therefore, almost impossible to locate through the catalog search feature. 

The index card record group to these petitions is correctly titled and located here,   https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/1840491

Once you have the Petition Number and date you will be able to locate the actual Petitions for Naturalization by starting here:  https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/988724?availability=Family%20History%20Library

From this first page search for the time frame and confirm the Petition number range of the film you wish to access.  Then just browse to the correct Petition number.  Don't forget to look in front of the Petition where you may locate the Certificate of Arrival and the Declaration of Intention as well.

I hope that this information will save many researchers the angst that I experienced.  I have submitted a written suggestion to familysearch.org suggesting an edit to the record group title currently in their catalog to make this record group more easily accessible.

Naturalization document images from US District Court in Connecticut are available on FamilySearch -- however, like approximately 80% of FamilySearch's holdings, they are not yet linked to the record search engine.  In order to find these gems, one needs to do a keyword search of the catalog (https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/search ).  In this case, I searched the catalog for "New Haven naturalization", which returns 34 collections. 

The collection that you want is "Naturalization records (New Haven County, Connecticut), 1906-1945" (https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/1409121 ).  Scroll through the "roll" entries until you find the one that contains the petition you are interested in, then click on the camera icon to view the images.  Note that when I initially visited the collection, there was a lock above the camera, normally indicating that access is restricted to viewing at a FHC only.  However, I clicked anyways & was able to view them from home.
 
Regards,
David Oseas

I had something similar; got a hint about MYSELF… and I saw that something was actually incorrect. My own birthday… I cited it and put the correction, and for proof, I said I should know, since it was MY birthday… don’t think it was ever fixed…

Subject: [JewishGen.org] "Hints" and "alerts" and "isicoveries"from commercial genealogical sites #general

 

I thought I would share an exchange I had by email with the head of a major commercial genealogical site. As I'd wagr had been the case with many of you here, you often received these -- and all too often, the "discovery" turns out to be data pulled from your own tree and recycled back to you. I suppose these companies believe it helps prove their value. 

 

I get these from two major sites that I won't name here because I believe JewishGen discourages calling out particular companies. I find these alerts annoying. But I got such an email the other day that was so laughable, it was almost pathetic. It cited one of my ancestors and suggested I reach out -- to MYSELF -- to find out more about him.

 

I used LinkedIn to identify a top executive at the site that sent this and messaged that person about this, and provided all my information plus the header information from the email. I was told that this had been passed along to the company's proper team and would be fixed.

 

We'll see.

Re: Book about Brakpan Jews, South Africa #southafrica

·       SKIKNE, M. 2017. The social history of the Brakpan Jewish community. Reach.


See the FaceBook Group "The Harvest Centre of Judaism & Equality" This is a centre that they turned Brakpan Shul into.
They have a little Jewish Library and exhibition. Maybe they have some contacts for spare copies of the Book you seek.
Maybe they have a copy they willing to take a few pics of for you where your family is mentioned.

Also are there any South African Jewry Book Collections in Australia? Perhaps a University or a shul with many ex South Africans?
Maybe they have a copy to borrow there? Or ask on your local Australian ex South African Jewish Group - if there is such a thing.

UCT/Kaplan Centre or the SAZF Issie Maisels Library at Beyachad or Gitlin Library in Cape Town may also have a copy they willing to take a few pics of.

Announcing the Publication of "Broken Memories" #JewishGenUpdates #announcements

Susan Rosin
 

JewishGen Press is proud to announce the publication of our 145th title: "Broken Memories" -  Remains from the Jewish cemetery in Kutno (Kutno, Poland).
 
Details:
Project Coordinator: Yosef Kutner
Cover Design: Rachel Kolokoff Hopper
Hard Cover, 8.5” by 11”, 180 pages

The pictures of gravestones in this book have been put together from pictures of the fragments, recovered since the 1980s by the municipality of Kutno, and specifically the former directors of the Regional Museum of Kutno, the late Mr. Andrzej Urbaniak and Mr. Paweł Szymczak. Seven hundred fragments were recovered in the surroundings walls and pavement, during years of tireless work. The fragments have been cleaned, numbered, photographed and stored in a storage room in Kutno, awaiting a proper moment.

That moment came, in mid-2008, when a new group of descendants of Jews from Kutno was formed. Using computer-scanned pictures of the fragments, it was possible to put together nearly half of them into 159 more or less complete gravestones (matzevot). Among these, only a small part displayed a family name, as was usual on matzevot of that time (family names were enforced on Polish Jews at the beginning of the 19th century). For the most part, they displayed only the name of the deceased, that of his or her father, and the date of death. Comparing the matzeva data with that of our genealogical database, it was possible to recover some of the missing information and especially the family names. This data was added in this book.

For more information and how to order, please visit: https://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip/YBIP_Kutno.html

searching for relative who was an officer in the Soviet army #russia

Genners,
 
My grandmother had a brother, Boris Yudin, who was an officer in the Soviet army,  I'm assuming during the 1930s and into World War II.  I'd appreciate suggestions as to how I could learn about his service.  He was born in Kyiv between 1900 - 1910.
 
Thanks.

Re: Lost on the National Archive Records Administration (NARA) website #usa

Hi Deborah,
You didn't mention what year the naturalization was done, so one thing you should also do is call up the court - yes, the one in New Haven.  Ask if they have archives on site and ask for your call to be transferred to that room.  If they don't, ask which branch of the National Archives get their records when they're transferred and then call that branch.  If the record your seeking is not on line, then you may be able to get a paper or scanned copy that way.

As an aside though, assuming it's from 100 years ago, the record is likely at a National Archives branch by now.  But if the naturalization had been done in a state court, there's a good chance it would still be at the court.

How do I research Russian Military Records for WWI Jewish Conscript #yizkorbooks #poland #slovakia

jaskinnon@...
 

The Yizkor Book for Wyszkow (Sefer Wyszków, edited by: D. Shtokfish and published in Tel Aviv, 1964 pp137-138) tells the story of Yekhiel–Meir Dzbanek, the son of Srulke the gaiter–maker, who had joined the tzar's army at the outbreak of the First World War.  I wish very much to learn more of Yekhiel–Meir and wonder if anyone in the community can suggest how I can go about this, for example in the Russian Military records, though I have no idea how to undertake this type of search.  Help from the group would be very much appreciated.
