re ALTSTAEDTER Weinheim, 69469, Baden-Wuerttemberg #germany

Hello Dear GerSIGers,

It's a pity that the Yad Vashem online database is not featuring
anything for genealogists but nevertheless going to the Yad Vashem
excellent online database:
http://www.yadvashem.org/lwp/workplace/
and typing in the Family /Maiden Name: > Altstaedter < yields some
ninety results with a few matching your research.

e.g. Grete Sondheim nee Altstadter was born in Weinheim, Germany in
1901 to Natan. She was married to Herman. Prior to WWII she lived in
Frankfurt On the main, Germany. During the war was in Frankfurt On the
main, Germany. Grete perished in. This information is based on a Page
of Testimony (displayed on left) submitted on 10/02/1983 by her brother.
Typing on more details will show you the details of the brother Hans
living in Herzlia, Israel.

I'm just sending that example to the list for people researching some
names to be aware of the aforementioned online database querying even
the maiden name.
Querying the Family of the Jewish People yields some 51 hits. Hans
Altstaedter is apparently no more alive sine 1992. But you will get
another hit for an Alstaedter >from Weinheim [German postal code] 69469.

In 1841, Simon Josef (10.02.1770 - 16.06.1848) adopted the family name
ALTSTAEDTER in Medenbach, now part of Wiesbaden. The name was derived >from the
village, in which he was born: Altstadt, now part of Hachenburg (Westerwald).
There his relatives adopted the family name ROSENAU. Since Simon had only three
daughters, the name Altstaedter disappeared in this family with his death.

Re: 50 year rule on NY State Death Certificates #general

I assume you don't have a lead to a New York lawyer who could request it.

If you have the ability to send someone to the local courthouse (in
this case probably the Surrogate's Court in White Plains), they might
discover a probate file which may contain the death certificate, or
in any event might discover the names of heirs or next of kin, which
could provide further leads.

It is remotely possible that you could find a kind soul in the
courthouse who could tell you over the telephone if the file exists,
and permit you to request copies by mail.

I called NY State and they advised me that the only way to get a death cert.
sooner than 50 years is to submit a lawyer's letter to them and they will
release it.

Do any of you know of another way?

Re: : 50 year rule on NY State Death Certificates #general

Ira Leviton
 

Dear Cousins,

I replied privately already to Sandra Greenberg, who posed the question
how to get New York State death certificates before 50 years have elapsed,
but since this may be useful to others, I'm posting a public response.

New York State regulations make it almost impossible to get death
certificates >from the Department of Health in Albany, unless you're a
lawyer or descendant of the deceased, can prove it, and have a need for a
death certificate, such as to claim assets. Genealogy is not a valid
reason to them, for the first 50 years.

But if the death occurred in New York City, then the death certificate
is filed with the City Department of Health, which is a different entity
from the State Department of Health and is a bit more accommodating.
Although genealogy is not a valid reason for them either, their criteria
for releasing a death certificate are not as strict. For instance, on
their application I have twice written cousin as my relationship to the
deceased, and that I want to find out the name of the cemetery where they
were buried to visit the grave as the reason for needing the death
certificate. They accepted these both times, without a problem.

For New York State deaths outside of the five boroughs of New York
City, death certificates can usually be obtained >from the appropriate town
or city clerk. The applications may often (maybe always?) be done on
line. However, this requires knowledge of the location where the death
occurred, since New York State doesn't even publish the index to deaths
for 50 years afterward. Without knowing the location, I have no
suggestion other than to make an educated guess. If you guess wrong, the
town clerk might keep your check as a search fee, or might return it.

Dear Group Members

I wonder if any one could clarify a note I have concerning a marriage
between Abraham Martin b.1765 M Bevis Marks 1784 to Rachel Mendes daughter of Isaac Mendes and Rebecca the note says
married originally in Portugal, if any one has this tree could they tell me
who was actually married in Portugal as I am now confused as to which couple
it is referring to.

If one of these marriages had taken place in Portugal am I correct in saying
it would have taken place in a catholic church as a Christian wedding. where
could I find out where the wedding in Portugal actually took place would
Bevis Marks have this information? This would be exciting as it might tell
me where in Portugal the family or part of it originated from.
