Hi Genners,

Available records >from Jewish Records Indexing - Poland, and the

You can see that our group has completed the transcription of
all of the records >from the LDS microfilms, which includes
Births and Deaths >from 1808 - 1870, with a few small gaps, and
Marriages that include 1849 - 1870.

In addition, thanks to contributions >from some of you, we have

record indices that bring most of our Birth, Death and Marriage
records forward through 1904. In addition we had a separate
project to index school records >from several schools in Tarnow
that covered a wide range of years, often with many gaps. These
school records are also on-line and often include student birth
dates and the name of a parent.

Please check the "your town" pages for any town to find the known
records as well as their current availability through

me the real scoop!

great advice! I have a lot of work to do now and am looking
forward to all the information I might find.

I have found refugee documents on my Grandfather Josef WEISS's
cousin in Switzerland, he was also named Josef WEISS. He had
four brothers Wilhelm (Haifa), Samuel, Alfred and Isidor were in
Sao Paolo. Can anyone help me in researching the brothers
families. Josef's and I expect his brothers were born in Biala
(now Bielsko Biala) Poland to Yakob and Fany WEISS. I also have
a photo of Josef.

Dear fellow JGenners,

I have for years acquired copies of the 1938 Asset Declarations required of all

important family history data. But, I have never obtained such documents for my
Prague, Czechoslovakia relatives. Does anyone know whether these are available
and how to obtain them?

Many thanks for your consideration,

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen RE: LASRI / LASRY (-- found in Florida) #general

Barbara Zimmer
 

Dear Genners,
Sometimes spelling counts!

Ora was looking for the LASRI famiy in Florida but acknowledged that the name
could be spelled differently. The children were named Henry and Jack. "Jack
married Caroline".

I found Jack (sometimes Jacques) LASRY in Florida records, married to Carolyn
(using Ancestry.com). Jack and Carolyn had at least two daughters who I found on
Facebook. After Jack died, Carolyn remarried.

I could not find Rachel / Leah / Lulu in the 1930 census, but she may have been
living abroad when that census was taken. She arrived in New York by ship in
October 1930 with her elder son, Henry.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen RE: NYC Coroner's Death Certificate 1913 #general

joyweave
 

Barbara,

My grandfather died in Manhattan on June 17, 1912 and did not require a Coroner's
certificate. The standard Death Certificate issued does not ask for the spouse's
name. It is headed exactly as yours is and has the following blanks to fill:

Borough. Name of Institution. Reg.No. Full Name. (All in top section). Then
left column: Sex, Color or Race, Single/Married, etc. Date of Birth. Age.
Occupation. Birthplace. How long in U.S. How long resident of NY City. Name of
Father. Birthplace of Father. Maiden name of Mother. Birthplace of Mother.
Special Information/ usual residence.

Right side: physician's certification, which says at the end (because there was no
autopsy): "I am unable to state definitely the cause of death; the diagnosis during
his last illness was:___ . Signature of M.D. Then a place for an autopsy report,
which in this case is blank. Place of burial. Date of burial. Undertaker name and
Address.

Clearly, in this period of time, the same form was used for both physician-
diagnosed and autopsied deaths. The only difference is which section of the
right-hand column is filled in. And no spouse name was required, nor is there a
place for the name of the person making the report other than the doctor.
