Dates on Lithuania Database #lithuania

monicamcmullin@mac.com
 

Could anyone please tell me how accurate the dates are in the Lithuania
database ? I am looking for any records of Tobias and Faiga FRIEDMAN/
FREEDMAN in the Kovno area.

In the Luthuania Marriage and Divorces database, I have found the
marriage of: Tuviash FRIDMAN and Feiga ZUNDEL in Kedainiai, Kaunas.
But the MARRIAGE date is: 5/2/1881 and my Tobias and Faiga FRIEDMAN/FREEDMAN
would have married about 1840- 1854.
Could this date be wrong ?

Thank you

Re: Lviv birth records #galicia

Mark Halpern <willie46@...>
 

As in some other jurisdictions, the birth record in Galicia acted as
an official record of changes in the subject's civil status. I have
viewed many Galician birth records and find that maybe 20-30% of
these have a notation that identifies a change in status. Most of
these notations are about a subsequent civil marriage of the
subject's parents (Jews were married in religious ceremonies, but
most of these marriages were not registered with or recognized as
legal by the civil authorities). This notation changed the birth status
of the subject >from illegitimate to legitimate. I have also seen
notations of the civil marriage of the subject 20 or so years later,
name changes, and deaths. These are less common notations.

My own paternal grandfather's Tarnopol birth record in 1863 has a
notation on it that reads "Moses Halpern died on 17 April 1937 in
Tarnopol and this event is recorded in the 1937 register of deaths
volume 64, page 16, entry 79."

These notations are a great resource to genealogists. Index entries
in the JRI-Poland or the All Galicia database will most likely not
include these great tidbits of information.

----- Original Message -----
I have been transcribing the Lviv Birth records since the effort began
and every once in a while something stands out in the original
records that begs a question and an answer.

There are occasional line items that include both the birth and
death information. The death information seems to have been
added to the record as an afterthought at some time after the birth.

There are years between the year of birth and death but the date of
record are the same. What puzzles me is that this information is
there for very few records and not for all records. On a whole the
records are very consistent in their presentation and deaths were
maintained in a separate set of records.

I have ruled out the speculation that the birth record was added to
the record after the death of the child however that would result in
a date of occurrence and the date of record to be different for the birth.

Any ideas?

Hi,

I hope you are all having a wonderful Pasech.

I am researching my paternal gmother's family.

The family originated >from Raseiniai,Gubernia,Lithuania. My ggfather was a
wholesale fisherman, who, unfortunately, fell into the Baltic and died >from
hyperthermia. The family name was NEVDOFSKI. My gmother's name was, Chusha
Mindel/Cecelia. Her brother, Yacov, came to England. Her sister Chia/Annie,
also came to England with her husband, Max KADDISH, they settled in Sheffield.
Another 2 sisters emigrated to Stockholm, Sweden, with their husbands, who were
boot makers.They had children there. However, the eldest sister, Gitel, and
her husband went back to Lithuania, to visit family, and the husband was
arrested by the tzar's army and sent to Siberia. Her other sister, Leibe, and
her husband left Sweden and followed them to Siberia where all contact was lost.
Another sister, Sarah Leah, and her husband, named JESOFSKI, emigrated to Chicago
and later moved to San Francisco. I think they had 2 children, Mendel and Celia.
The family left in Stockholm did correspond with the family in Sheffield until
the 2nd. world war.

If anything rings a bell with you, I'd love to hear >from you.

Regards,
Harvey Silver, England.
