What if a record doesn't have a film # nor PSA info #poland

Avraham Y. Kahana
 

Hello,
how does one obtain a record that shows up in JRI searches, but
doesn't come with any film number (thus cannot be obtained through the
LDS) nor the PSA header information (thus, as far as I understand,
cannot be ordered through the given PSA) ?

For instance, I have several KANO records that show under the following hea=
ding:

Lomza 1827-1886
Lomza Gubernia / Bialystok Province
Located at 5311' 2205'
Last updated June 2001


Is it possible to obtain such records ?

Thanks in advance,

Re: Passengers Missing from Manifest #general

Column 16 of the ship's manifest gives Isaac's destination as "wife
113th St. New York" Apparently she arrived in US before he did.

On March 4, 1900 my grandfather Isaac Bodenstein arrived in New York

Yet he had a 15-month old son Louis and a wife Rose who delivered
another son in New York five months later. Little Louis and Rose
almost surely would have accompanied Isaac, but they are not listed on
that manifest or any other, including the outgoing UK manifest that
also shows no one travelling with Isaac.

1800 - 1830s Polish records #general

Ben Forman <ben.forman@...>
 

Dear Genners

I'm looking for some advice in taking my FURMAN ancestor search a
little further back. Over the last few years I have had real success
with the JRI-PL Kaluszyn records and have found records which have
led me back to the early 1800s, in particular 4 birth records for my
GGGF and his 3 brothers in the 1830s/1840 and a death record for my
GGGGF >from 1880 which gives his age and hence an approximate DOB in
the first decade of the 1800s.

I haven't however been able to find his marriage record which was
presumably in the later 1820s and a search of JRI-PL online for
further links in other towns has proved fruitless. The names of
those I am looking for details of are Kelman FURMAN and his wife
Yacheved, and I am wondering if other records exist for this time
period/area which might offr further clues - eg. census or tax records?

Many thanks as always

Eliyahu FEINBERG from Vilna (Boston, New Haven, Bronx) #lithuania

MandJMeyers <mandjmeyers@...>
 

My great-grandmother Feiga (nee FINBERG) LANDSMAN came >from the Vilna area,
and possibly Podberezhe (Paberze) before that. When her husband Abram
died, she emigrated to Boston to be with her children. So far, I have not
found any of her FINBERG relatives.

Feiga's father was Eliyahu FINBERG and a US census search shows only 3
Elihu FEINBERG in the country, so one (or more) of those may be related.

Elihu Feinberg #1:
1930 census in New Haven, CT, parents Samuel and Sadie, siblings Alfred,
Jack and Belle,
father born in Lithuania, Elihu was 11 in1930 and born in CT.

Elihu Feinberg #2:
1930 census in the Bronx, NY, parents Michael and Emma, siblings Rose,
Minerva and Dorothy,
father born in Lituania, Elihu was 23 in 1930 and born in NY.
1920 census in the Bronx shows other children though hard to read (Julia
and 2 others)

Elihu Feinberg #3:
1930 census in the Dorchester section of Boston, MA, wife Ida, children
David and Pauline,
Elihu was 32 in 1930 and was born in NY.

HI, group!
If you're reading this, it means the JewishGen server migration is
done and successful! Congratulations to everyone who helped
accomplish this wonderful improvement!

I live in California, and would love for someone in New York City to
check a record for me, at the Municipal Archives.

I am researching the Simernitsky branch of my family - my mother's
great-grandmother, and have learned that a Scheindel Semernitsky died
Oct. 12, 1930 in Brooklyn. Her death certificate is # 19880.

If any of you will be going there soon, I'd love to get a copy of the
death certificate. I know there's a copy fee of $10 and will gladly pay it.

Thanks!

Re: 1788 Decree of surnames for Jews #galicia

Dear Genners,

Rivka Schirman wrote on February 4, 2009:

"The decree demanding that, beginning with January 1st 1788, each
Jew should have a constant surname is online on the website of
Shoreshim (http://www.shoreshim.org/en/infoEmperorJoseph.asp)."

At first I would like to thank Rivka for this most interesting
info, and secondly I have a question:

Does anyone know whether the decree demanding that the Jews in the
Austrian Empire take German names included Brody as well? I ask
because my ancestors who lived in Brody at the time of the decree
(before they left for Odessa about 1800), took the name "Pasternak"
which is not German but Polish-Russian. So could Galician Jews take
also names that were not German?

Thank you,
