JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re:Designation of unmarried partners #general

Sally Bruckheimer <sallybru@...>
 

This is actually 2 possible questions:

1. The Genealogy Program Question: If the couple has no children, the
'non-family' partner could be indicated in notes rather than in the 'Spouse'
position - which would require the person to be assigned the opposite sex,
offending same sex partners. I am reminded of a friends Uncle and his
friend, Dickie, who was his partner for more than 20 years - everyone knew,
so there would be no point in keeping it secret, but you couldn't easily fit
Dickie in as the 'wife' of the Uncle.

If the couple has children, then you might want to make the partner a
'Spouse' despite the sex/marriage issues, but I would suggest the notes
instead; in the Spouse position, I would put simply 'See Notes'. This way
there is a 'couple' (ie marriage) where you can assign children, otherwise
children would apparently be the offspring of another existing marriage.
The program that I use allows one to include dates for User-Specified
Events, so you could even include a 'Commitment Ceremony' or 'Civil Union'
where appropriate.

2. The Family Question: How much do you spread the word that cousin Whatsis
is in a Unmarried/Same Sex/Whatever relationship or has children by whoever
or no known person. It depends on how open the immediate family is about
this; today there is little stigma in some families, so include all these
notes when you include other notes.

However, there are more sensitive situations in which you might make
yourself notes, but mark them (as you genealogy program might allow) not to
print; this way, you can simply say Whoever had the following kids, and
forget about the sensitive details about the partner or whatever is
sensitive. If you print things for someone, obviously kids need to be
included, but not the circumstances of their birth. I use this for the sad
details that I know of for a distant cousin who escaped the Holocaust but
had a difficult time adjusting in the US. His close family does not talk
about it (I don't know if they know somebody told me), so I don't spread it
around.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Common Law Marriage #general

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Naomi,

My Brothers Keeper program offers the alternative of "Common Law." When you
say that you're not sure how to deal with this, I'm not sure what aspect of
the genealogy you're wondering about: if the tree itself, I suggest putting
the two people together, even if it does use the "m" as short for "married
to"; if the Register Report, Common Law would suit. I had a dear Uncle who
was never married, and never lived with his girlfriend of 40 years, so I
wrote in "Companion." I don't know if this is helpful or not. Well, doesn't
common law refer to a type of marriage?

Best, Steve Orlen

I know that the Harold Washington Library (Chicago Public Library), has many
years worth of the old Chicago American newspapers. I don't know if they
have that particular issue. I assume that the Newberry Library would also
have it.

Does anyone know who in the Chicago area would have microfilm of The
Chicago American Newspaper for March 31-April 3, 1931?
