Michael Trapunsky <mtrap@...>
 

Hi all,

I am doing research on the WEISS family >from Tarnow and Germany. Feivel
WEISS (my wife's great grandfather) lived in Tarnow in the late 1800's. He
had at least 2 brothers that I know of (first names unknown) who moved to
Germany.

Feivel WEISS married Batia and they had 6 children:
Adelle
Gitel
Rivka
Malka
Rose
Moshe

If anyone has any information on this family I would love to hear >from you.

Thanks very much.

Re: synagogue marriages in England #general

michael slifkin <slifkin@...>
 

The web site you quote is actually one done by a commercial organization.
Even in this precised document they point out that a wedding can be either
religious 0r civil but the religious weddings have to be carried out in a
approved building.
The handbook for marriage secretaries is much more explicit. It states
in the first paragraph that all purported wedding ceremonies have to be
registered.

Now it is possible to have a civil service in all manner of venues eg a
football stadium but this is a recent innovation. I believe that one of
the few or only groups allowed to have a wedding in the open until recently were the Jews.
I am fairly certain that before these changes that the option was either
to get married in a registry office (civil) or to marry under a religious
denomination.
My feeling is that if a denomination was not registered for marriages >that > the couple would have to marry in a registry office and then
presumably have their own ceremony later on in their religious premises.
Otherwise there would have been no possibility for new denominations to
arise able to carry out their own services. They clearly would not emerge
fully fledged ready to carry out authorised marriage services.

Deborah Dworski, Arlington, Virginia U.S.A. asked on Mon, 23 Nov 1998,
Message number 19 of the digest, about "Eusher" Anschel (phonetic spelling).

Allowing for differences in pronunciation, it seems to me very likely that
his name was Asher Anschel, a reasonably common combination.

trying to trace Morris GLICK and Rose SCHORR #general

Donald Richter <donr@...>
 

Morris GLICK and Rose SCHORR were listed as witnesses on the draft of a
'Preliminary Form for Petition for Naturalization' which was prepared
for my great-uncle Samuel MAYER.

Uncle Samuel is deceased and I have no idea if the petition was ever
filed; the latest date on the draft is the date of his Declaration
(first paper) which is - July 11th 1922 - so the information on
the draft is presumeably >from some time after that date.

The indicated addresses of the proposed witnesses were:

Morris GLICK 1010 TrinityAve Bronx NY
Rose SCHORR 1299 Grand Concourse Bronx NY

Both these persons were probably related to his wife's family (her
maiden-name was SCHORR). Since she was my grandmother's sister, they and
their descendents would be related to me. I'd very much like to make
contact, if possible. Can anyone out there help?
