Query: Edith LONG SCHWARTZ family #general

BjLEInk@...
 

I am looking for the descendants of Edith LONG, born Nov. 21, 1853 in
Wilkes-Barre, PA, married Henry SCHWARTZ, I think of New York City. She had four
children: Henrietta, Elmer, Helen and Sadie.

Henrietta, b. 1878, married Joseph GIRSDANSKY Girsdansky. They had one daughter,
Barbara, who married, but I don't know the name of her husband or children.

To the best of my knowledge, Edith and Henry lived in New York City.

Obtaining Canadian Birth Certificates dated 1900's / AMCHISLAVSKY etc #general

Lin Mor
 

Last week a brick wall fell and my cousins and I need help in our mission to
obtain two Canadian birth certificates dated 1909 and 1911. One cousin referred
to the Ontario vital statistics website which states that one needs to have
permission >from the living or prove they are descended >from the person, (with a
copy of their death certificate), whose records are being sought. The site also
requests that a guarantor be a part of the process and the directions and
requirements are written for people who are living in Canada. Our situation is
different and I hope that someone can assist us.

Here is the story of why we need input and help:

My AMCHISLAVSKY grandparents married in Erie PA where grandma's uncle lived and
that original name was on the legal marriage records. They lived in Toronto for
several years before immigrating permanently to the United States in 1913. I
had been unable to find AMCHISLAVSKY in Toronto city directories or the census.
A few years ago before privacy and security were tightened, we tried to obtain
the two birth certificates and the response was that there were no births
registered under that name.

Grandpa became a United States citizen in 1945 using the name ANIS. On his
Certificate of Arrival (1913) he used the name ARONSON, one of several surnames
he used over the years. It stands to reason that it was accepted that this was
the same person.

Last week I was studying the 1911 Canadian Census and plugged the name ARONSON
on a whim. Of course, all of you would have known to try ARONSON long ago, but
it took several years for me to think of that. Anyway, in the Toronto Centre
area was a listing for Sam AARONSON, Fanny AARONSON and their son, Harry, (born
12/25/1909), aged 1. Esther was born in August 1911 after the census was taken,
therefore is not listed. The cousins and I agree it is indeed our grandparents
and uncle, the dates cited and other information matches.

Soon after becoming residents of Allentown, PA, the surname was changed again,
this time to ANIS. All of the paper trail generated in the United States uses
this final name.

My two questions are these:

How do we prove that Sam AARONSON is the same person as Samuel ARONSON and later
Samuel ANIS? Would the United States citizenship papers with the names ARONSON
and ANIS on the various documents be acceptable proof? The other birth,
marriage and death certificates we have for the later links do use the name ANIS.

How do we go about getting a guarantor? Our situation is different than what is
outlined in the Ontario Vital Statistics website since these people left Canada
as very young children never to live there again. No, they never became
citizens of the United States, so there are no documents pertaining to that.
Can someone give us some direction to what we should do? Thank you.

Yiddish Letters from Odessa, Samara, Alexandria, #general

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Cousins,

Some time ago I wrote requesting translations of Yiddish letters
written by family members in the late 19th & early 20th centuries. I
had several willing volunteers, but it turned out that my cousin & I
couldn't digitalize them in a way that made them simultaneously large
enough and clear enough to read in an electronic medium. Now I'm
asking again, but this time I'll have to send xerox copies in the
mail. >from what I've been told, the letters are very interesting, and
some quite painful. There are 20 letters in all.

Please reply privately to sorlen@...

Best, Steve Orlen

You can start with the Philadelphia inmate and account locator. There is also a
list of other many options and department contacts if this does not work.

For those of us who are addicted to JewishGen and worry that such
lapses are due to problems at *our* end, a brief announcement at the
top of the JewishGen home page would be useful when there are long outages.

On the family name BLANKETT/BLANKIET/BLANKET #poland #lodz

JNB <jnblank@...>
 

This is my first posting to the Lodz area mailing group.

I am researching the origins of my paternal grandfather Abraham
BLANKETT's family. I have very little information on his family but I
know my gf was born in the town of Medved, near Novgorod, in NW Russia -
i.e. outside of the Pale. I don't know for how long the family had lived
in this area.

Recently I've found some indication that the family may possibly at some
point have moved to this area - or been sent there - >from somewhere in
Poland. One of these indirect indications (far >from proof, of course)
is the fact that several databases (JRI-Polansd, Yad Vashem etc.) show a
big concentration of the family name BLANKET/BLANKIET/BLANKETT etc.(
various spellings) in the area of Lodz, whereas I have so far not been
able to find many occurences of this family name in other parts of
Eastern Europe.

I would be interested to know if someone in this Discussion Group knows
anything about the origin, possible meaning (in Polish/?), occurence
etc. of this family name.
I word the question vaguely on purpose since I doubt I can at this point
of my research hope to find any definitive links with actual BLANKET
families in the Lodz area.

Any help and suggestions much appreciated.
You can answer either privately or - if you think the answer is of a
more general interest - on the list.
