Mazel Tov and death certificate advise #general

J Fried
 

Hello My Dear JGen Mishpocha,
Fristly I would like to share with everyone that on Teusday I made a
bris. I named my son Elimelech after my GGGrandfather >from Dombrowa
Galicia who had no one named after him, now he will be remembered.

I wanted to ask advise finding my gggrandparents death certificates.

Max/Mendel/Marl Baker is buried in Washington cemetery. In the
cemetery date book as well as on his tombstone it says his date of
death was October 17, 1908. The cemetery date book says that his
residence was 29 Orchard Street. ( I corroborated this address by
getting his daughter Bessie Bakers marriage certificated dated 1909
and it says that her residence was 29 Orchard Street).
I can not find his death certificate. I searched Italian gen and
Family Search with all different spellings but I found nothing.

His wife Bertha (Breina) Baker died August 11/12 1911 I know this from
her tombstone that says 18 Ab 5671. She is also buried in Washington
cemetery. There is no address for her in the date book. ( I don't
think they even found her in it.....they did kindly invite me to come
down and look through he date book) On the 1910 census I did not find
her at 29 Orchard street. I searched for her death certificate on
Italian gen and Family Search with all different spellings but I found
nothing.

[ Although they lived in NYC when they first came to the USA they
lived in NJ so I figured I would try my luck, maybe they went to die
in NJ. I hired a researcher she checked the NJ Archives in Trenton but
found nothing]

I am sure they are in NYC. Is there another way to search the
archives? Is it possible to search by date and address? Any advise how
to proceed will be appreciated. ( If you think I should hire a
professional please recommend)

Thanks for all,
Only simchas,

Nechemyah Fried
Lakewood NJ
BAKER >from LOMZA, DUTKA FINFER FUNFER FUENFER >from LESKO
KLEE TODER >from SOROVITZ

MODERATOR NOTE: If you wish to provide recommendations for professional
services, please do so privately.

Reclaim The Records files legal case in NY court seeking the release of the 1930-2015 NYC marriage index #general

Asparagirl <asparagirl@...>
 

Reclaim The Records filed its second-ever court case yesterday, an
"Article 78" legal petition against the New York City Clerk's Office,
seeking a copy of the NYC marriage index for 1930-2015 under the New
York State Freedom of Information Law (FOIL). The vast majority of
that database has never been available to the public before in any
form or at any location.

The full twenty-five-page legal petition is available online here:
https://www.reclaimtherecords.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/ReclaimTheRecords_vs_NYC_City_Clerks_Office_-_Notice_of_Petition_with_stamps_-_16-Mar-2016.pdf?4e51f5
[ TinyURL: https://tinyurl.com/j2c56cl ]

The venue is the Supreme Court of the State of New York, county of New
York (Manhattan). The case's Index number is 100397/2016, although it
is not yet visible in the New York eCourts online system. The City
was served with papers on March 17, 2016, and the first court date is
scheduled for April 7, 2016.

This case is not the same as the one that was filed against the parent
agency of the NYC Municipal Archives last fall, in which Reclaim The
Records won the first-ever release of the 1908-1929 marriage index.
This new case does involve the same kinds of marriage index records,
just many more years of them, up through December 31, 2015. And in
this case, all the records after approximately 1952 are believed to
already be in a searchable database format, which would alleviate the
need for any kind of transcription project, if they are won.

For more information on this case and other public records reclamation
projects, you can subscribe to the free Reclaim The Records e-mail
newsletter at https://www.ReclaimTheRecords.org/ .

I have checked many variations of Rubin without a glimmer of success.

mills and included: Gabersdorf, Parshnitz, Schatzlar, Ober Alstadt,
Bernsdorf, Arnau, Dunkenthal, Hohenelbe, Ober Hohenelbe, Leibau
