Re: Male as first name on a Certificate #general

Sarah L Meyer
 

I would like to extend Jeff's comments. My daughter and son-in-law are
frum (religious) and we have never learned our grandsons' names before
the bris. Our youngest grandson, is a twin, who is now 3 and a half.
Because he is a twin he was born about a month early. We learned his
sister's name on the following Shabbat (they were born on Thursday).
However, he remained "Yeled" (baby boy) Wax in my genealogy until his
bris which was three weeks after his birth. It was postponed until he
was strong enough (even though they both came home >from the hospital
within 3 or 4 days of birth).

As I understand it, Jewish custom is to name on the 8th, or Circumcision,
day; and, if a baby dies before the 8th day, there is no name. New York State
requires a name for a birth certificate no later than the third day.

Thus, many Jewish children have the first name of "male" or "female" for the
official birth certificate and, when they reach their majority, many, but
possibly not all, of these now young adults go to New York State Supreme Court
(each of the 62 current counties in New York State has a New York State Supreme
court) and change the name on their birth certificate.
This does not just happen among Jewish families. When I checked my
non-Jewish grandmother's 1891 birth record in Saratoga Springs, New
York, it did not list her name, and city officials did not mention any
correction in responding to my question about her given name at birth.

Looking for RACUSIN family (Latvia, then Pennsylvania) #general

Eva Radding
 

I am looking for descendents Berre RACUSIN, originally >from Zagare, Latvia.
Family lore says his children included Maurice Jay RACUSIN, an investigative
reporter for the New York Herald Tribune (born Glen Riddle, PA, maybe 1892,
maybe 1889, died 1962 New York), and daughters who married men with the last
names of PROSS, BLUM, LASHMAN and CADES.

Other research has led me to the following information:

Rebecka (b. about 1878, Russia) married Charles PROSS. Their son Julius
(Jules) PROSS died in Newark, NJ, in 1988. Their daughter Maola (died 1986)
married Dr. Jerome KAUFMAN, a cardiologist in Newark, NJ. I have not learned
of any children of either Julius or Maola.

Lottie (b. about 1861 in Russia/Latvia) married Samuel LASHMAN. Their
children were Fannie, Anna, Morris, William Mitchell, and L. Edward).
William Mitchell Lashman, who was born in Riga, Latvia, later lived in
Camden, NJ. L. Edward Lashman lived in New Orleans.

Yette (b. about 1872 in Russia) married Louis CADES. They lived in Camden
1900 and 1920.

Maurice Jay RACUSIN's 1962 obituary gives his parents' names as Benjamin and
Yetive RACUSIN, says he was unmarried, and lists his survivors as his
siblings:

William RACUSIN of Mt. Pleasant, PA

Samuel RACUSIN of Newark, NJ

Becky PROSS of Montclair, NJ (that at least matches the information above)

Fanny SMITH of Irvington, NJ (Husband Alex, daughter Henrietta, according to
census data)

Sarah STERN of Washington, DC

Reba GROSSMAN of Lexington, VA

Maybe all of these people were siblings, but the birth years range >from 1861
in Russia to at least 1897 in Pennsylvania. My theory is that they might
have been either two different generations or stepsiblings. I am trying to
sort everyone out, as well as learn more about the supposed ancestor, Berre
RACUSIN.

If any of this information matches anyone you know of, please let contact
me.

Thank you,

Sephardic SIG #Sephardim Re: Portuguese Conversos in New England #sephardic

Schelly Talalay Dardashti
 

Carole Early asks about Portuguese Conversos in New England.

Carole, there is a body of literature and reports about Portuguese
**bnai anusim** or Conversos in New England. Many came >from the
Azores and settled in fishing ports up and down the New England
coast, >from Massachusetts to Rhode Island.

As with most converso communities, deep secrecy is the norm.

What names are you searching for?

Basic resources are Sephardim.com (with a very active discussion
group of some 2,000 people, SephardicGen.com, Society of Crypto-
Judaic Studies, Saudades, Kulanu and other online resources,
including numerous postings about many aspects of Conversos and
Crypto-Jews on Tracing the Tribe - The Jewish Genealogy Blog.

One remark though,

Iasi population was hit during the Holocaust - during the Iasi pogrom. The
murdered were mainly males. About 12-15 thousands of Iasi Jews were murdered

Re: looking for Szalszend, near Miskolc #general

First, you might want to post this question on the Hungarian
SIG list.

A good place to look up Hungarian place names is the gazetteer
on <www.bogardi.com>. It has a search, so you can look up places
by part names. (You spelled the place differently in the subject,
the body, and the signature of your message.) And it displays them
on a map of "Greater Hungary" so you can see where they are.
B/M/D records were usually kept in the administrative centres, so
it will help you to know the present-day country, megye (county)
and jaras (district).

As for Buzinka, you might try the JewishGen Family Finder, for
example.

New York doctor who stole babies after birth, 1920s #general

Stuart Ungar <teamungar@...>
 

Hi Fellow JGENers,

My Grandparents Lena and Julius EISENBERG had two children (both
born in New York). I believe that before my mother (the oldest)
was born (she was born in 1928) that my Grandmother gave birth to
two other children. The children supposedly died shortly after
birth. My mother's birth announcement in the paper read:
"EISENBERG - To Julius and Mrs. Eisenberg, 906 E. 172nd St., a
daughter, at Tremont Sanitarium". I don't know if these other
babies were born in the same location?

It was found out later that the doctor who delivered those two
babies was arrested for selling babies. So, we are assuming that
these two babies may have suffered the same fate (taken shortly
after birth).

I am wondering if anyone out there has any information such as
newspaper clippings (on this "doctor") and/or can suggest ways
of checking records about these births. I don't know if a formal
burial would have taken place. At the very least, perhaps some
paperwork can be located that would show the record of these births.

ANy help greatly appreciated. This has been a family mystery for
many years.
