Romania SIG #Romania Re: TRANCANET surname #romania

LucR <luc.radu@...>
 

Yes, actually I do have a third cousin in Israel who had same
surname onhis maternal side.
In Romanian, the verb " a trancani" means someone who keeps
talking without saying much of any significance. So that's the
root of the noun.

Use the catalog search at FamilySearch (http://familysearch.org): search
> catalog > keywords > enter keywords such as "Manhattan marriage" or
"Brooklyn death".

Click on the appropriate collection.

Under Film Notes, it will list all of the film numbers for that
collection and the contents (i.e., range of certificate numbers, dates,
etc.) of each film.

Dear Rachel:

The hard way:
https://familysearch.org/eng/Library/FHLC/frameset_fhlc.asp
from there, look up the borough you want, then Vital Records, then go
through the film notes to find the film with the right year and
certificate number range.

The easy way:
Births: http://stevemorse.org/vital/nybirthigg.html
Grooms: http://stevemorse.org/vital/nymarriages.html?index=groom
http://stevemorse.org/vital/nymarriages.html?index=bride
http://stevemorse.org/vital/nydeath.html

Either way, you can then contact the FHL or have someone in Salt Lake
City get records for you.

Re: How to find Film/File numbers? #general

Hi Rachel,

(I'm fairly new to this... first post to the list but I figured I'd
share my [limited] knowledge)

Armed with the year and certificate numbers, I headed to my local LDS
Family History library, where they had the NYC death, birth and
marriage indexes in binders. Granted, I'm in the greater NYC area -- I
doubt these indexes would be printed and available for lookups
worldwide.

But on my last visit, one of the volunteers told me that I could save
a trip next time: the NYC indexes are available online via Stephen
Morse's "One Stop" webpages: http://stevemorse.org/. Take a look at
http://stevemorse.org/vital/filmnotes.html - just enter the type,
borough, year and cert # and it will spit back the LDS Microfilm #.
You can then request a digital copy of this (for free) >from LDS using
the Photoduplication Request Form located here:
https://familysearch.org/learn/wiki/en/Photoduplication_Services.

Thanks,
Doug Melniker, Long Island, NY

Viewmate identification & translation request -- Russian #general

philafrum
 

Dear Genners:

I've posted a photo and an inscription (28244 & 28245). I'd appreciate:

1) information about the man--about when would the photo have been taken,
what kind of outfit is he wearing (is it military garb)? I'm assuming he's
an ancestor, possibly >from Kyiv or the environs, perhaps Radomyshl.

2) word for word (direct) translation of the inscription on the back of the
photo.

Both were affixed to a plate-like card measuring 2.5" x 4", which may help
pinpoint the period during which the photo was taken.

You can view both at the following address:
