Records of name changes in a borough of New York City are in that borough's
County Clerk's Office of the State Supreme Court. Contact information is at

1847 to the

X-Message-Number: 22

Hello,
One of the families I research is the MARCH family >from Dubiecko (Poland).
My grandfather's cousin, Zalman MARCH immigrated to the USA around 1937.
His wife's maiden name was probably SCHUPPER or SCHIPPER.

In 1946 Zalman MARCH was living in Queens, NY.
Around 1980 he was not alive, but had (at least) 2 sons.

On the www.italiangen.org I found naturalization listings of:
1) March Solomon , 1938
2) March Sol , 1943

I ordered copies of the first record and it appears to be not
my relative, but a person also known as Schloma MASHUROVSKY
(born in 1862 in Talnow, Russia, and married in Ooman, Russia).
There are many more details about him.
I will gladly send the records to anyone interested.

I would appreciate any idea of where to look for Zalman MARCH's burial
place and descendants.
Also, it is possible that Zalman MARCH changed his name and surname -
is there a source of surname changes in NY area?

Thanks for your help,
Tomer Brunner, Israel.

KRAVITZ #general

David Kravitz
 

Shloma KRAVITZ, born 1884 in eastern Europe, married Esther SIRAGHER (b1885)
in 1911 in Southport, Lancashire England. Both were tailors and living in
Harrogate, Yorkshire at the time of the wedding. They moved to London after
their marriage, near Waterloo train station.

In 1916 they produced a son, Cecil, at which point all three vanish. I
cannot trace any of them through the Family Record Center in London (births,
marriages, deaths) nor through official name change sources. EIDB lists
nothing either.

Do any of these names feature in your family tree? They would give me a
possible new line of research into my own genealogy. Many thanks for any
possible help.

I am researching my maternal family who came >from Borislav and Drogobych,
Ukraine. The primary name I am looking for is Schubert >from Borislav as I
have some information on the other names in the family.

My great grandparents were Yitzhak Mordechai (Isack Morduch) OXENBERG
(Ochsenberg) and Leah SCHUBERT (1847-1917) who were >from Borislav, Ukraine.

The names of Yitzhak Mordechai's parents are unknown, but Leah's parents
were Susche and Gitla SCHUBERT and I am most curious about them.

My grandparents Rose OXENBERG and Yehuda-Leib (Lewis) FINK left Drohobych in
1898-1900 for Manchester, England. Rose's sister Ettel OXENBERG also came
to England and married David AXELRAD >from Iasi, Rumania.

I have made use of the usual resources to find info on the family and have
records for the one's who lived in Borislav pre-1917. What I don't have is
info on descendants other than my mother's branch.

If you recognize or know about the SCHUBERT family >from Borislav, please
contact me.

Thank you,

Elena DUBIANSKAYA #general

David Kravitz
 

In the early 1980's I visited the Refuseniks in Moscow and Leningrad (St
Petersburg). My special contact in Moscow was Elena DUBIANSKAYA. After the
collapse of the USSR, Elena and her family were allowed to leave. Her
daughter was a very promising tennis player and her husband's name was Eric.
They probably went to Israel but may not have stayed.

Can anyone supply me with contact details of Elena? Please respond privately
unless your reply contains details of a general nature of help to other
genners.

Re: New York - Manhattan - Ward system - census #general

Joel Weintraub
 

I just want to add to Yehudah ben Shlomo response to the person looking for
help in locating people on the US Census for 1900 through 1930.

First, the Morse website doesn't have a utility to find the 1900 ED number.
We have been asked at meetings if we would do such a utility, and at that
time I had no real resources (maps, good census descriptions) to undertake
such a project. The recent issuing of National Archives film series A3378
with ED maps >from 1900 through 1940 changed the resource picture, and when I
have time (in a few years) I'll tackle 1900's top 100 cities to produce
databases that Steve Morse can search on the One Step site.

Second, in the meantime, for 1900 ED searches (enumeration district), take a
look at FAQ 508 at http://www.stevemorse.org/census/faq.htm#500 It explains
how one can find an ED number online for many large cities in the United
States, especially those with small enumeration districts.

Researchers tend to ignore the FAQ sections on the One Step site, but we put
a lot of effort into the FAQs not only to help people with specific
problems, anticipate problems and offer solutions, but to also give a
general background to researchers on census matters and other areas
pertaining to the utility in question.

Cuba's Jewish Community - JGSNY November 19th meeting #general

Gloria Berkenstat Freund
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society (New York City) will present "Cuba's Jewish
Community: The Golden Years, 1906-1958" on Sunday, November 19, 2006, at
2:00 PM. The guest speaker is Jay Levinson, an international lecturer,
freelance writer, adjunct professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice,
and the author of "Jewish Community of Cuba: The Golden Years: 1906-1958"
(Westview Publishing, 2006). The program will be held at the Center for
Jewish History, 15 West 16th Street, Manhattan (between Fifth and Sixth
Avenues). Subway: 4, 5, 6, L, N, R to Union Square; 1, 2, and 3 to 18th
Street, and F, V, L to 14th Street & Sixth Avenue. There is a $5 admission
charge for non-JGS members.

Cuba was a transit point for many Jews who eventually made their way to the
United States, often staying months or years in Cuba before travel paperwork
could be arranged. Jay Levinson's presentation will trace the history of the
Cuban Jewish community and reconstruct many forgotten events. The island's
first rabbi made trips to Santiago de Cuba and Havana >from Florida, where he
owned an ice cream factory. During World War II kosher meat was slaughtered
in Cuba for soldiers in the U.S. Army. Meyer Lansky, known for his
underworld activities, applied for membership in a Havana synagogue. Dr.
Levinson will also discuss some of the archives that he visited and the
genealogical information available.

The Jewish Genealogical Society hosts monthly programs held at the Center
for Jewish History. Members of the public are invited to attend these events
and to join the organization, which was founded in 1977. For further
