Translation Request #general

Peggy Teich
 

Hello All,

I would be very grateful if someone could translate the marriage
record (number 5) of Felix FEUERMAN and Marie WEINER on ViewMate at
the following address:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM55228

I am particularly interested in the occupation of and any other
information about Marie's father Nathan (my great-great grandfather),
but also interested in the information about the Rabbi (last row). If
someone would be kind enough to translate the entire record (#5) I'd
be very happy. Thank you!

Best,

Dear SIGgers,
I have submitted an image on ViewMate,
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM55223.

I would like paraphrase of the message, a marginal note on the 1914
death certificate of Moritz MOND. I'm particularly interested in what
it says about the names of his parents (Israel Baer Mond and Lina
Kaiser (Hauser?)

Please use the ViewMate link for your contributions.

New Jersey ????? 1892 Pittsgrove, Salem County death info #general

Steve Pickoltz
 

Hello Genners,

I've posted this before with no results, so I am trying again.

My great grandmother, Sara (Sarah) PICKHOLTZ died on Jan. 2, 1892 according to
her tombstone and is buried in the Alliance cemetery, Pittsgrove, NJ. I know
she and her relatives arrived in the Pittsgrove area in 1890. I know all about
her husband, Bernard (Berrisch) PICKHOLTZ and there children. What I don't
know is where she died nor the cause of death.

The NJ State Achieves has no records of this death. Alliance cemetery has no
records, Pittsgrove township, surrounding townships, other county governments
have no records either. The only other bit of information that may be correct
is that there was a Scarlet Fever epidemic during this time period. I've also
looked at other states but without a location this has gone nowhere.

Can someone help me end this mystery of my great grandmother's death???

Re: Mother and son share a tombstone #general

Alberto Guido Chester
 

Buenos Aires (Argentina) Jewish cemeteries are run by the AMIA which
follows mostly conservative (not Orthodox) rules.

It is quite usual to bury more than one person in the same plot.

This is not for financial reasons (as Tom Klein mentioned), because
both burials cost the same ammount each.

This is only allowed for very close relationships.

In my case, my mother was buried with her father, according to her own
wishes and easily accepted by the cemetery administration.

This happened in 1991. I do not know if the present day administration
of the Kehila would rule otherwise, being much more influenced by
Orthodox ideas.

Hope this helps.

Dear Jeff,
There is currently a project at FTDNA which is looking at the deeper
'Sephardic' ancestry of 'Ashkenazim'. I do not know how your situation
may dovetail with this project but I will give you the information so
you can pursue this line of inquiry yourself: look for the R-FGC20747
Study Group on FamilyTreeDNA.com .

Cordially,

Adam Cherson

relationship through my verified connection to the BLANKFORTl family,
and specifically to the Rebecca Blankfort KRAMER family related to/descended
from Tuviah JURBARSKY.
In addition to reuniting with Blankfort relatives, finding source documents
for the family, I have recently had a Blankfort family member do autosomal
DNA testing, and her results further confirm the connection.

I am interested in a few things that readers may be able to help me with.

First, do you have any sources, or can point me toward any sources, to
update the information on these related families?

Second, a Blankfort relative who has been recently DNA tested writes, "I
remember my grandfather Barney telling us that we were direct
descendants of the Abarbanels of Spain and direct descendants of King David."
I have tried relatively unsuccessfully to find any documentary support for this
claim, and only mild DNA evidence of any Sephardic connection of members of the
family that in modern times is Ashkenazi. Any thoughts and suggestions about
that would be most welcome in my investigation of this claim.

Third, on page 289 of "Eliyahu's Branches," Yekhezkel (Charles) Kramer death
date is given as 1951. Another source by Dr. Neil Rosenstein, "The Gaon of
Vilna and His Cousinhood," also published in 1997, provides a different year
of death [1945]. I am seeking more information about this and other related
family members.

Thank you in advance for your insights and assistance.

Re: Entries in the new NYC (pre 1930) marriage license database, that don't have NYC marriage certificates #general

Renee Steinig
 

Mark London <mrl@...> wrote about NYC marriage license
applications now indexed on Ancestry for which there are no NYC
corresponding certificates. I've encountered another problem: missing
listings of licenses obtained in NYC. I'm quite sure of one of them
because I was the bride! The license was undoubtedly issued in the
Manhattan Marriage License Bureau in (yikes!) June 1967: I have a
paper copy of the license, obtained last year, not to mention a
50-year-old souvenir pen!

After I could not find my own license in the index, I searched for
total listings in 1967 and surrounding years. The counts: 1965 -
136,256, 1966 - 130,256, 1967 - 18,812, 1968 - 149,888, 1969 -
154,022. I think it's safe to say that most 1967 licenses are missing
from the index.

PREISLER family from Rzeszow 1910 #general

Dina Hill
 

Rzeszow PSA 1910 Census includes the following for the PREISLER family:
Adolf born 1863 born in Zolynia (father)-father
Franciszka 1870 born in Rzeszow-mother

Their children:
Aleksander (M) born 1897
Anna (F) born 1898
Stanislawa (F) born 1902
Kazimierz (F) born 1904
Jozef (M) born 1908
Adam (M) born 1910

I know what happened to Adam once he moved to the USA, but I don't
know where he or his siblings or his parents went after this census in
1910. The children were all born in Rzeszow and their mother as well.

I searched for them in the USA, and I haven't found them at all.

Does anyone know where to go with this information? They didn't fall
off the face of this earth after 1910. I would so appreciate any help
any of you can give me.

Best Regards,
Dina Aptekar Hill
