Has anyone ever heard of the following towns:

Mittwitz bei Kronach
The town Mitwitz (with one t) has the German zip code 96268

Bad Orb
has the German zip code 63619

Klein Hasslich
The town Kleinhaslach has the German zip code 90599 (under Dietenhofen)

Perhaps that helps,

Thanks from the BERGERS/BIRGERS #lithuania

SandyMike <smberg@...>
 

In this world fast-paced world people occasionally forget to take the
time to say thanks - here is one that will not be overlooked.

My family, the BERGERs, will forever be indebted to Ann Rabinowitz and
all the others who have contributed to the efforts that this past
weekend pushed our knowledge of our family back about 125 years.

Through Ann's incredible knowledge of Kupishok (our family's ancestral
home), she almost instantly provided highly detailed information
previously unknown to my family regarding my GGF, then, shocked us will
_all new_ (to us) information regarding our GGGF, GGGGF (born circa
1776), a GGU, and a GGA, and all the allied information regarding their
families. She also told us, again new information, that our family name
is BIRGER not BERGER.

We now also know we have previously unknown living blood relatives in
Israel and South Africa, and logically, I am sure, elsewhere as well.

The impact on our family has been "electric." Real excitement.

Again, Ann, we all thank you and await the coming revelations.

Naturalization 1935 #general

Robin Sherman <strathtch@...>
 

Does anyone know if where the original intent papers would be filed for a
Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, resident naturalized in 1935? I ordered the
indexes for the US Court Southern and Eastern to nail down the date, but
really want the intent form. How about prior to 1927 for the same?
Brooklyn courts?? Would Varick St. have any of this? I emailed them, but
got no response.

Start with books #belarus

Yackov & Lena Berkun <berkun@...>
 

I'm glad to see that we have passed the questioning stage. I suggest to
start with the translation of printed material. In  libraries of
Universities there must be books called "Gubernskie vedomosti" for Minsk
and other gubernias with Duma voiter lists, "Pamyatnaya knizhka" for
Minsk and other, and a book either called "Ves Minsk" or "Vsia
Bellorussia."
I didn't find anything in the library of the Hebrew University.
 I'll be glad to participate in any translation needed once these books
are found.

Moderator's Note: Yockov, thank you for your offer to help with the
translation of books. Is there anyone in this group that has access to
a library that has the above books?

I found that my grandfather (father's side) was naturalized
on Oct 10, 1876 yet in the 1900 census it states that he
arrived in New York City in 1875. Is this possible? I
thought that a peson had to be in the U.S. 5 years to be
eligible for naturalization.
The problem here is the Census information. Census information
is notoriously unreliable. It is not documented or verified or
authenticated in any way. The census enumerator simply writes
down what someone tells him... the responder might have been
your grandfather himself, or his wife, or one of the children
that were at home when the enumerator called... or even a
neighbor, if no one was home. "1875" was just a guess that
someone told the enumerator.

If I can pinpoint the years he arrived this would help in
possibly finding what ship he arrived in. I am told that
during the late 1800 most immigrants arrived through Castle
Gardens at the south end of Manhatten.
Has any of that information been indexed?

In connection with names it's hard to give a categorical "no". But as far
as I know these are different names. On the other hand, Toba could very
well be Gittel (Tova is Hebrew for "good", and Gittel is a Yiddish diminutive
for "good").

I had a great-grandmother Tema. Her name was spelled tet-ayin-mem-ayin in
her obituary in a Yiddish newspaper, but tet-ayin-mem-yud on her headstone.

Ther is another "popular" Polish variation in Goldstein and other Jewish
surnames ending with the "stein" (engl."stone") - Goldsztajn, Rubinsztajn,
Epsztajn, and so on. Another yet Polish Jewish names variations is
associated with the "klein" (engl. "small") = Klajnberg, Klajndorp,
Klajnszul, etc.
