Re: How to make sense of two death records that don't make sense to me #germany

Shana Millstein
 

I want to thank all of you for sending me your thoughts. I will be following up on them. Right now, I have a theory which fits the data I have (data that I do not have italicized in parentheses):  In 1813 Levi and Henriette LICHTENSTEIN have a daughter Seraphine. (Henriette dies). Levi (who now has the imposed surname Israel?) remarries Freidericke and they have a daughter in 1826 they name Seraphina (a tiny variation in the name, and the main part of this theory I have trouble with. More research to do).  They have another child in 1833 named Johanne Henriette (after his dead wife?). The two records do come from different parts of Germany.  None of them ever came to the US.
I look forward to following up on your ideas and solving the mystery. Shana Millstein, from San Francisco.

Haven’t nailed down the exact name on the early 20th century Passenger List yet, but I suspect it was GOLDSTEIN. GOLDSTEN was listed in the 1920 Census. It became GONSALVES at a later date, and even later became GORDON -- all in the same generation! Different children have used each of the latter two! And none of the changes was made “at Ellis Island”! :-)

Imagine the descendants doing their genealogies 100 yrs. from now!

You can find the Death Certificate on Ancestry.   Date of Death, Feb 14, not the 17th, back then Montefiore records listed date of funeral...not date of death.  Use the name, Leah Fleysker, that's how it's indexed.

Re: How to make sense of two death records that don't make sense to me #germany

It's my understanding that it is very common for multiple family members to be named for the same ancestor. My mother has 3 cousins on her mother's side all named Michael for their grandmother. My great-grandmother and her siblings all had daughters named Jente for their mother. I've also seen numerous instances of children named for their siblings who died as infants. Repeated names show up everywhere and it can create a fair amount of confusion.

I will say it would be unusual for a man to give two of his living children the same name, even if the children have two different wives. But for two cousins to have the same given name, be in the same profession, and then name their children for the same ancestor wouldn't be unheard of at all.

Re: Subj: ViewMate translation request - German #translation

Dear Fredel, 

Thank you for your response. The document (VM82889) has apparently been mislabeled by basia.famula.pl. (I just compared the document described there as Ernestine’s death certificate to VM82889 to make sure it wasn’t I who did the mislabeling.) As far as I knew, Ernestine’s only husband was Isaac Seelig, my third great grandfather. Perhaps she had a second husband. Thank you for letting me know the image is mislabeled. I’ll change the information accompanying the image on ViewMate. 


Best wishes,

My father's written name was Udel (or it could be Jdel, hard to tell from the handwriting on a document). On other things, his name was Yehuda. His American name was Julius. His mother's name was Udlea (written). Her American name was Ida. Hope this helps.

#Germany - birth records for the area around Flamersheim in the Rhine before 1850 #germany #general

Robert Heuman
 

I am looking for birth data for individuals born in and around
Flamersheim before 1850. I do not know precisely where these births
would have been registered Flamersheim is about 10 kilometers south and
east of Euskirchen, so that is where the registry might have been.

Help is appreciated... I am most interested in the Oster family and the
Herz family

Re: How to Order Death Records From Quebec, Canada? #canada

Burial records including pictures of most headstones from Montreal cemeteries are online at JOWBR (reached through JewishGen).
You can also do research at JGS-Montreal.org. (Scroll to the bottom -<Research>-and click on Dashboard for links for numerous sites.)
Most (Jewish) burials in Montreal are handled by Paperman. I don’t know about now but in the past they sent me the Burial records that listed all the information about the deceased. They would have prepared this information to send to the government for the preparation of official death certificates.
You might be able to find what you need this way. But if you need official documentation the government of Quebec website is www.gouv.qc.ca.
Good luck!

Udel is usually a woman's name. I  have never seen it as male, although Idel can be. I have only seen Judel, Yudel, and Iudel for Juda or Yehuda.

"While researching names related to an uncle of my late mother I bumped twice  in Familysearch.org into Udel BLASZ from Bardejov,Slovakia. Once it was identified as a male born in 1874 and next "he"

married in 1894 with Salomon FINGERHUT from Wisnicza (Nowy Wisnicz) whom I clearly located on JRI-PL. I know that Udel is a nickname of Yehuda. Any  ideaS?"

Depends on where, I think.   My great-grandfather on my mother's side was named (or the name was transliterated as) "Udel Tevelson [Tawelsoh, Toivelson, etc.]"; name became Hugh Davidson in English.  Oy, these names, these names!  What a pain!

Thanks to all who responded so far. It seems that Udel is a female given name when and if pronounced properly.
Since I live in Jerusalem I am constantly baffled by contemporary  Israeli(modern) given names shared by both males and females such as : Hadar, Zohar, Tal,Chen, Gal and even the more traditional Yonah. We even have a joke: Tal Cohen and Yonah Levy got married. Who is the bride and who is the bridegroom?

How to Order Death Records From Quebec, Canada? #canada

Jacob Heisler
 

Hi everyone,

I have three gg-grandparents who died in Montreal, Canada, and I want
to order their death certificates. I'm hoping they will tell me who
their parents are. Unfortunately, Genealogy Quebec (which has images
of marriage records) only has a basic index for death records. And
I've had no luck figuring out exactly how I can order copies of the
death certificates.

Could someone please tell me exactly how I can get a copy of the death
certificates? I should mention the people in question died in 1929,
1935, and 1951, and I am a Canadian citizen but don't live there.

Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,
Jacob Heisler

The Israel State Archives (https://www.archives.gov.il/en) has arrival records of the Immigration Department of the Palestine Zionist Executive. These are in Hebrew and arranged by month and year but aren't searchable by name. For example, the 1923 records for ships arriving at Jaffa and Haifa are at

Re: Daniel Levy out west #usa

I know it's a common name, but 40 years ago there was a Daniel Levy who had settled in Bay Shore, , Long Island, many years earlier -- long before the big development boom. I believe he had a grain store and was quite successful, living in a very large house. His wife's name was Ruth.. I am in contact with his granddaughter, if you think there's a match.
