Does any one about this Asylums-Central Islip, Pilgrim state in New York.
How do you get information on people who were there. Thank you for your
help.
Since those institions were under the Department of Health of NYState,
perhaps contacting them in Albany can produce the information you are
looking for.

It may be prohibited now, but my family has an uncle and niece who went
from NY to Rhode Island to get married in 1921.

As I keep on reiterating, that law is still on the books, in the Rhode
Island General Laws, though I forget the statute number.

Where is Punidel? #general

James Morzillo <jmorzil1@...>
 

I was most fortunate and happy to recently meet my second cousin once
removed, (my 2nd cousin's grandfather and my great grandmother were
siblings). He said that his father came >from a town called Punidel
believed to be near Grodno, but I cannot find it even on the most detailed
maps. Can anyone help me find its location? Did the town's name change
at some point in time? Was it destroyed?

There is another researcher listed in the JGFF for this town, but their
e-mail address is not current.

Forced name change in Westphalia #general

Stephen G. Esrati <stevsta@...>
 

My GG Grandfather, Simon Levy, resisted the Prussians about changing his
name >from Levy, which the authorities viewed as a Jewish first name.
My second cousin, Gerhard Sonder, researched the matter and reported as
follows:

"The name-change story goes something like this. In 1806, Napoleon
occupied Westphalia and made it a kingdom under his brother, Jerome. French
laws of emancipation, precipitated by the French Revolution, were applied
to the Jewish inhabitants, and they were required to adopt a surname
(family name) by 1807.
"Simon Levy refused to comply and still had not changed his last
name which, because it was a "Jewish First Name," did not meet the
requirements for a family name. In 1815, the area again came under
Prussian governance; the requirement to adopt an appropriate last name
persisted.
"Simon kept up the battle until he was told on 25 April 1846 to
select an appropriate, new family name within ten days or he would be
fined 10 Taler. On May 18th, Simon agreed that he and his family had
selected the name LEWIN."

Others in my family did obey.
The family name Gottschalk was adopted in 1808 when Jews in the
Rhineland had to adopt family names.
The D=FCsseldorf state archives list the following name adoptions:
Elias Gottschalk remained Elias Gottschalk
His daughter Keile became Cornelia Gottschalk
His son Feis became Philippe Gottschalk
His son Laib became Louis Gottschalk
His daughter Jedle became Jeanette Gottschalk
His son Gumbrich became Gdofroi Gottschalk
His son Chaim became Germain Gottschalk

The name also appears as Godschalk
