Romanian death record on ViewMate -- translation help requested #romania

Renee Steinig
 

Thanks to the wonderful Czernowitz BMD database now at
http://microtarget.com/czernowitz/CzernowitzBMDindex.htm , I was able
to easily identify and obtain the Feb. 1924 death record of my
mother's first cousin, Hersch LEHR. Hersch was the young son of Eisig
LEHR and Rivka REIFER of Neuzuczka (Jucica-Noua). My mother, who was
then 15 and living with her Aunt Rivka's family, spoke many times of
this little boy, whose death she recalled with much sadness.

I have put the image on ViewMate...

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM31872

I would especially like to know Hersch's age and/or birth date, his
burial place (Sadagura?), and the cause of his death, but I would be
very grateful to have a translation of all entries if possible.

Many thanks to Daniel Horowitz and all the volunteers involved with
creating the Czernowitz database and thank you in advance to anyone
who can help me understand my cousin's death record.

Hi, I am looking for information about:

1. Mayer Pinchas STEINMETZ, who I believe lived in Bogdan Voda originally
from Borsa, and passed away around 1917
2. his daughter Sara Lea STEINMETZ, born in Bogdan Voda, she died in 1940
and is buried in Dragomiresti

3. Rechel (GANZ) PERL who married Asher PERL and lived in Bogdan Voda

Rechel was the daughter of Shimshon Aryeh GANZ who lived in Dragomiresti
Shimshon Aryeh GANZ was married to Sara Lea STEINMETZ.
Rechel was his daughter >from a previous marriage, possibly the sister of
Sara Lea

I would appreciate all help in finding more information about my ancestors.

Thank you,

Re: Middle name Baraf? #general

Snillop47@...
 

I recently asked about a family where the father and a son had the middle
name Baraf. I asked what it might mean. I received 9 responses with several
different suggestions. Many thanks who took the trouble to send e-mails.
These included 'Baruch', 'Barak', 'First-born' (plausible because the son
with that name was the first-born, his other siblings did not). I think the
most likely explanation,sent by 3 people, was 'Ben-Harav', son of a rabbi.
However, although the father was certainly religious, being president of a
synagogue associated with the United Synagogue in London, I have no
knowledge of a rabbi in the family.

The surname of the family was WALTERS and they were confectioners and
produced the well-known toffee Walters Palm Toffee. This was sold in decorated
tins which I notice are now collectors' items.

This is not true. The Kriegsarchiv in Vienna has documents on soldiers, too!
I have in my hand a document on the decoration of the ancestor of one of my
clients. He was a simple gunman! And the document was there and was handed
over to me by the Hungarian Delegation.

But the database is gappy, many documents are missing, unfortunately.

Here are their contact details.

When I wrote to Vienna they said that they only kept records of the
officers.
The letter was in German which I had translated.

Two years later I wrote to them again. This time in English. They daisy aid
the same thing and they said " last time we wrote you in German. This time
in English. " Seems they keep good records but not of soldiers who weren't
officers.

My grandfathers Max Kreisz and Meyhardt Roth both served in the Hungarian
army.

The privacy laws in Israel are 70 years unless the material is published
and open to the public.

I suggest you take a look at the Israel Genealogy Research Association
website. We have an extensive collection of databases for the Ottoman and
Mandate period. We also have a collection for the period of the beginning
of the State of Israel >from material that has been published. Registration
is free and allows use of the database but does not include images.

On our descriptions of the databases, you can also see the materials that
will be coming up in the next year. We also have a list of archives and
other sources for Israel in our resources section.

If the students know Hebrew (or their parents) there is also the Jewish
Historical Newspaper website of the National Library.

Mogilev Gubernia directories #belarus

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

Mogilev Gubernia Commemorative Books (Pamiatnaia Knizhka) for 14 years
during 1865-1916 have recently been added to the full-text search
engine at http://genealogyindexer.org, with search results linking
directly to corresponding images on the Russian State Library's
website or to downloadable .PDFs >from the Belarusian State Library.
This significantly increases the number of such sources covered by the
search engine.

While these directories do not include every resident, business, or
organization -- they are not nearly as comprehensive as the Russian
Empire Business Directories (Vsia Rossiia) also on the site -- finding
matches can be especially helpful because of the wide range of dates
and typical inclusion of patronymics. You might learn the name of the
father of someone who owned a business in 1865, for example.

All of these sources are included in a search with the default
options. The default option "Add Latin->Cyrillic" allows you to
search with Latin letters, even though the sources are written in
Cyrillic, by using automated transliteration (and looking for gender
variants). If you do know a Cyrillic spelling of your search term,
though, you can enter that (or try both approaches). The wildcard *,
matching zero or more letters, works at the beginning and/or end of
words, regardless of whether you use Latin with transliteration or
Cyrillic.

To see exactly which years are currently covered or for links to
browse the directories, rather than search, see
http://genealogyindexer.org/directories#Mogilev.

To stay updated about new additions to the search engine, you can
subscribe to a weekly newsletter at http://genealogyindexer.org/news.
