Marriage look-up in Phildelphia? #general

Hilary Henkin <propper@...>
 

Dear group,
I've just discovered that a great-uncle of mine got married in Philadephia
in 1911. (Why he got married in Philadelphia, when the entire family never
left NYC, I don't know yet!)

According to the Philadelphia City Archives website, their wait for a mail
request is four months - aarrgghh!

Would anyone here be willing to go to the City Archives sooner than that,
and make a copy of the record? I have the exact date, and names. I"m
willing to pay the copying costs, of course.

You're all wonderful - I love this group!

Regards,
Hilary Henkin

TILSITER #general

Jtilsiter@...
 

Hi everyone

I am a newcomer to this and wonder if you can help at all

My surname is TILSITER and I am research this.

Can anyone give advise or places to look please

I do know the following facts

1. It is a cheese!
2. TILSIT is/was a town in EaSt Prussia (now Sovetsk).
3. There was a peace treaty there in 1807

I have accessed the Ostpreussen website but this talks about the town etc
and not the name.

Thanks in advance

Questions Concerning Tree Layout #general

Shira Honig <shonig@...>
 

Hi there. If anyone is able to help me out with some specific questions
regarding Family Tree Layout, I'd greatly appreciate it. I'm having
trouble designing my tree, partly because I'm a novice and not
altogether familiar with different tree layout options, partly because I
would like to treat every entry consistently even though almost every
person provides a different challenge, and partly because I haven't been
using genealogy software. There are several reasons why I've chosen not
to, but the most important one is that I'm giving this as a gift and
thought it would be best to diagram it myself and then pass it on to a
professional printer to make a high quality poster that I can't make on
my ink jet. (All the printers I've spoken to do not use software
compatible with genealogy programs. Maybe I've spoken with the wrong
printers?)

In any case, what is the usual "protocol" for these 3 issues?

1. Does it make sense to record a death date as "died in Holocaust" even
if the exact year is known? (Some survivors in my family, like in
almost every other family, I would imagine, have known death dates,
while others do not.)

2. Record surnames for ALL people on tree, or just last names of spouses
who marry in to family, whether male or female, and leave the kids'
surnames to be logically figured out? Recording all names takes up a
lot of space (and I have over 300 names + photos), but it does seem to
eliminate confusion, expecially for kids of divorced parents - who
sometimes go by their fathers' surnames, their mothers' maiden names, or
their stepfathers' surnames.

3. Record middle names? Middle initial? Hebrew names? I'm concerned
about space, since I have a little over 300 names and want to include
photos as well. I'm not inputting full dates (just years) for this
reason. But the trouble with omitting all middle or Hebrew names is
that some people do actually go by them. So the choice seems to be - be
consistent or use the name/s each person goes by?

Many thanks,

Shira Honig

Hello,
I recommend you ask <TheShipsList@...>. I have seen them answer
such a question many times, and they are very helpful.

The Passenger Ship Records of people coming to the United States via
Canadian Ports can be found in the National Archives under the heading
of St Albans Records. The Family History Library of the Mormons also
have this data on microfilm.

Empress of Ireland: Lesser known than Titanic #general

The Kendrick's <kendrickkreation@...>
 

Hi Everyone!

In the quest to find our ancestors many people forget the ports of the
Great Lakes and that the St. Lawrence River was a major navigation point
used by many. It should be noted that often times these ports were used
by thousands to return to their homelands after a job in the US had
ended. Keeping that in mind, there is a ship wreck that occurred two
years after the Titanic went down. This particular ship carried many
immigrants returning to their foreign lands after working at automobile
manufacturing firms such as Ford, etc. in Detroit (once production was
completed on a make of car many immigrants were let go so they went back
to their homelands). The ship was called "The Empress of Ireland,"
which sank in 14 minutes in the St. Lawrence and killed 1,014 passengers.

Re: Elias name equivalents #general

Roberta Sheps <roberta_l_sheps@...>
 

Dear Charles,

No doubt someone with better Hebrew than I have can give you a more
authoritative answer, but it sounds to me as though Elias, Eliesh and
Eliezer are all the same name, so may refer to the same person, although
I am aware that often cousins do get named after the same dead
relative. However, regarding Yeshia, my husband's grandfather, whose
name was Joshua, was known as Yeshia or, more simply, Shia. So there is
a possibility at least that in your family the name refers to someone
else. Is Joshua or Joe or Joseph a name that runs in your family?

a chief rabbi, paid by the state. He lived in Zakroczyn in the late 1800's
and early 1900's; had two children, Israel and Esther.
