JewishGen Offers Writing Short Reports in November #germany

Nancy Holden
 

Writing Short Reports November 4-November 27

JewishGen will again offer a class in publishing your research. This
class concentrates on short reports. Time to get your data out of
the shoebox and arrange it in a summary report? A quick, short report
is great to send to relatives or other researchers and to remind you
just where your last project left off.

In this class we will practice writing 3 styles of reports: a list
style, a lineage style report and a longer Genealogical Summary Report.
The instructor will offer directions for using your genealogical
software "publishing features," organizing your files and folders,
citing your sources and making decisions about media snips and images.

Requirements: Students must have done enough research to be ready to
write. Students should have access to a genealogical software program.

Students must have 8-10 hours per week to study the assignments, write
their reports and interact with the instructor. To meet the needs of
international students this course is open 24/7.

Tuition is $125 for this 3 week class and includes editing suggestions
upon request. Enrollment is limited to 10 students.

Address questions to Nancy Holden
JewishGen-Education@lyris.JewishGen.org

If you have questions, I will be glad to review your project before you
enroll.

Any Ele Toldot-like reference for other cities? #germany

David Dubin <davidmdubin@...>
 

Hi all,
My tree has been lucky enough to include many Frankfurt residents, so
Ettlinger's Ele Toldot has been a treasure. Does anyone know of any
other German city that has a resource like Ele Toldot?
Specifically, have any of the following been researched & collated?:

Altona, Boppard, Bugau, Dusseldorf, Eisenstadt, Essen, Fulda, Gelnhausen,
Halberstadt, Hannover, Julich, Kessel, Kleve, Koln, Mainz, Mannheim,
Quedlinberg, Rheingonnheim (Ludwigschaffen), Stadthagen, Vienna, Weisenau,
Wetzlar, Worms.

Thank you. David Dubin, Teaneck, NJ davidmdubin@gmail.com

German-Jewish 13th-18th Century naming pracitices #germany

David Dubin <davidmdubin@...>
 

Hi all,
Does anyone know how "German" names correlate with Jewish names in
Frankfurt in the Middle Ages? Is Sarlin, for example, just a
Germanized form of Sara, just as Zalman is a Germanized form of
Solomon (Sh'lomo) or Isser is Germanized Israel (Yisrael)?
Is there a list of such German/Hebrew/Yiddish correlates anywhere online?

Thank you, David Dubin Teaneck, NJ davidmdubin@gmail.com

Re: (US-NYC) Marriage Records Copies 1930-1949 No Longer in City Clerk's Office #general

What the NY Municipal Archives had in the past is only the Health Department
marriage certificates through 1937. For the City Clerk's marriage license file
they have only had the index through 1950 and the certificates through 1929.
In the past if you wanted a copy of the marriage license after 1929 you had to
get it at the City Clerk's Marriage Bureau office not the Archives.

The "new" is that the Archives will now have the Clerk's license forms >from
1930 through 1949. In the past if you wanted these you had to go to the Clerk's
office and have them do the search for you. Now we will be able to do our own
searches and read the certificates for free or if we can a copy they should be
less expensive than the past. As someone who does these searches I will be
happy not to have to sit and wait at the Marriage Bureau for 30 minutes or more
while they pint out a single form.

As I explained in a previous message in NY City there were two sets of paper
work available between 1908 and 1937. One was license form issued by the City
Clerk's office and the second was the certificate issued by the Health
Department. Yes they overlapped through 1937 and in most cases both sets of
paper exist on most marriages. As I explained the information is usually the
same except for instances such as a divorce where the Clerk's form took more
details versus the Health Department.

So the what's changed is that the City Clerk's marriage licese file >from 1930
through 1949 should be far more accessible than in thee past.
