Help in finding US Naturalization records #hungary

Stiefel Barry <bstiefel@...>
 

Dear H-sig members,

I am writing to ask for help in finding a
Naturalization record. I am searching for Harry
KESTEN's Naturalization record. Harry Kesten was from
"Austria" (US 1920 census) and moved to Lodz, Poland
around 1900, where he married and had children. In
1914 he immigrated to New York City and lived with his
in-laws the SHORER's. I do not know if Harry Kesten
had any siblings or not. After 1920 the rest of his
family came over. I have checked the WWI draft
registration, and he only lists "Austria" as his place
of origin, so the last place I can think to find Harry
Kesten's birth place in Austria is his Nautralization
record. His death certificate does say he was a U.S.
Citizen, and the 1920 census does list him as "PA" in
the process of citizenship. He at first lived on
Delancy Street, and then moved to Willet Street. One
problem that I have had is that there was another
unrelated Harry Kesten in NYC, so I keep on stubmbling
on his record. Any help that you could give me would
be much appreciated.

Sincerely,

Barry Stiefel,
East Lansing, MI

the writer refers to "Austria" as a misnomer for the Austro-Hungarian
Empire which might offer some hope that Harry Kesten came >from Hungary.LS

FHL Judaica Index CD #general

Howard Margol
 

It gives me great pleasure to announce the completion, and availability,
of the FHL Judaica Index CD. This CD includes the largest index of Jewish
records, on microfilm, microfiche, and in print, ever compiled and produced
on a CD. The records referred to are in the Family History Library in Salt
Lake City, Utah. Nancy Goodstein, a volunteer at the FHL, spent almost 18
months compiling, updating, and finalizing the index for the CD. The CD
will enable you to pinpoint the exact source of the records you are
interested in.
After that, you can contact your local FHL to order in a copy of the
microfilms, or microfiche, of your choice after finding the correct
film/item number on the CD. Books are not allowed to be transferred.
However, inmost cases, your local library can obtain a copy of the book
from another library via "inter library loan".
The CD contains an index of thousands of records, including hundreds of
records not previously known or publicized. One example is a book
containing an alphabetical list of persons sent to Siberian work camps from
Lithuania, 1941-1952. Identifies the I.D. number, name, father's name,
birth year, date sent, date released or died, and name of camp to which the
person was sent.

Other examples of very valuable records on microfilm include lists of
emigrants NOT sailing on emigrant ships; a list of Jewish returnees; and
list of those held back >from emigration. A list of arriving emigrants
(including a list of those sent by rail to Antwerp, Tetschen, Stralsund and
Vandrup at the outbreak of WW I); emigrants >from Kovno (Kaunas), and
Jewish orphans >from Russia.

A locality index (alphabetical) to Lithuanian Jewish Vital Records as well
as the actual records. Includes all microfilms of records received >from the
Lithuanian Historical Archive as late as January 2001. In short, the CD
contains an index to records >from all over the world.

The CD is available for immediate shipment. The price is $20 if the order
is received or postmarked prior to May 1, 2001 plus $3 S/H in USA & Canada,
$5 S/H to other countries. After April 30, 2001 the price will be $25
plus S/H.
The CD is "searchable" and PC and Mac compatible.

Order your CD! (Some individuals or societies, may want to donate a CD to
their local FHL).
To order, send your check, made payable to IAJGS, to;
Marilyn Natchez, IAJGS Treasurer
PO Box 251683
West Bloomfield, MI 48325-1683
Alternatively, you may pay by VISA or MasterCard. To do this,
send your authorization to charge your card to Marilyn at the mailing
address above or at her e-mail address, MRNatchez@....
Don't forget to include the Name shown on the card, the Address
as shown on your credit card statement, your Card Number and
its Expiration Month and Year.

Extra! Extra! Extra! - Through the courtesy of IAJGS, the index of
Jewish records in the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah
will also appear on Jewishgen.org.

David GROSS and/or Isaac GROSS - From Kozova, Galicia to Brooklyn, NY #general

Ricki L. Zunk <rickiz@...>
 

My pggm was named Ester Fay GROSS. She lived in Kozova, Galicia, in the

1890s and probably through her death. I cannot find any information
about her there. BUT, I know that she had family who immigrated to the
USA and wound up settling in Brooklyn, NY.

With a surname like GROSS it's been very difficult to pin anything down
in Brooklyn. I just received several sets of family naturalization
papers >from the very early 1900s, and they were witnessed an Isaac and a
David GROSS.

Here's what I DO know:

1907 - David Gross lived at 261 Henry St., Brooklyn
1907 - Isaac Gross lived at 12 Pitt----, Brooklyn
1913 - David Gross lived at 667 Fox St., Bronx
1927 - Isaac Gross lived at 950 -------, Brooklyn

I realize that this isn't much to go on, but then again, I've seen you
miracle workers come up with information with much less information.

I've tried writing to everyone I could find through the JGFF, but that's
been fruitless. With GROSS being such a common surname, my only
hope at this time is to connect with someone who might have their
own connection to either of these two men. So, if anyone recognizes
these men by the dates and addresses, please contact me privately
and let's talk.

Thanks,
(Mrs.) Ricki Lynn Randall Zunk

Hi All,

Linda Thorpe Caciola recently wrote in asking where she could obtain a
death record for Elmira, NY. Don't forget to take advantage of Random Acts

It's a terrific group of volunteers.

CA Death Index/SSDI #general

Stephanie Weiner <laguna@...>
 

In response to Linda Thorpe Caciola's comment on these two indexes:

The online version of SSDI does not make records prior to the early
1960s available. Undoubtedly, the Soc. Sec. Admin. has these records,
but has not loaded them into their database.

On the other hand, I, too, have found 1950s death records in the CA
Death Index.

My gm died at the Brooklyn Jewish Home For The Aged. I remember visiting
her there when I was very young, but I have no idea of its location or if
it still exists. If it does still exist, I wonder if they have records of
their residents in the 30's.
Please write to me privately.

LAVETTS Marriage in NYC #general

Alan R Rosenfield <arosen@...>
 

I have information that David LAVETTS was married in NYC sometime before
1900. LAVETTS is an extremely rare name and I am sure that he is a
relative. Since I don't know the date, doing the lookup would be extremely
expensive for someone, like me, living in Ohio. does anyone have any
suggestions?

locating immigratoin files in UK #general

Linda Altman <southernexotics@...>
 

I am trying to locate an immigration record for my G. Grandfather. He left
Wysockie-Mazowieckie, Poland as an 8 yr old and went to London England
where he stayed with a family until he was an adult and then he came to the
US. I do not believe that he was naturalized in England. He would have
left Poland about 1890 to go to England. All I know about the family that
he stayed with is that they were bakers and they lived in London. I do not
know if he traveled alone or with an adult or older child. I don't know
know the departing port or entry port into England either. He came to the
US in 1903. Any ideas of where I can look for records?
