of the New World, which has given me a whole new perspective into Jewish
genealogy, not to mention American history as well.

The book is about the prominent NAAR, BAIZ, PEIXOTTO, PRETTO and SEIXAS,
family saga and their continuous history >from pre-Inquisition Spain and
Portugal, to Holland, the Caribbean and the United States, where descendants
played a major role in New Jersey and New York history.
These personalities include -
Mayor of Elizabeth, New Jersey (where I live)
Treasurer of the State of New Jersey
Two consuls—one to St. Thomas, the other for South American countries
The origins of maternity leave in the U.S.
Involvement in solving the Lindbergh kidnapping case
The visionary of the Panama Canal
A founder of New Jersey’s last county (Union County) in 1857
The New Jersey State printer· Private secretary to a New Jersey governor
Essex County judge and leading New Jersey Democrat

The book is -

Where are you? #general

Hi Genners,

This may sound silly or stupid - or both, but can people posting messages
please realise that this is an international group, with members all over
the world. Too often I see messages such as "My grandparents came here" or
"In this country", and I have no idea where they are writing from.

Can we all, therefore, use such phrases as "Here in......." or "Came to
......"and give the name of the country or, if in the US, give the name of
the State. It makes life so much easier to offer help because, even in these
days of electronic communication, rules and regulations regarding
genealogical research differ so much, as do methods of access and storage.

Meant kindly.

I searched the The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island

site (http://www.ellisisland.org/) for my mother's
family. Their names on arrival would have been:

father David Sicherman
mother Vera Sicherman
sister Ilus Sicherman [later married Mati
Hirsch]
brother Dezsö Sicherman

All of these people (based what my mother told me) would
have arrived together. As my mother told the story they
left what was Fiume, Italy (Wikipedia
<http://en.wikipedia.org/> (http://en.wikipedia.org/)
tells me it is now Rijeka, Croatia.) (Heading, I believe
for New York City.) They immigrated in either 1937 or
1938. (After my mother turned 21 and before WWII
started.)

The SOLEIF database does not have any records for these
people.

P.S. Her other brother, Myksa, chose to go to Palestine.
I believe he married and had a child, Ryfka, while there.
He joined the rest family some time later.

Re: Coming of Age in 1808 #france

Paul King <samorai@...>
 

Pierre Hahn asks the interesting question: When is the coming of age for
males and females in 1808? Eliane Roos Scuhl replies that it is age 21 for
both. While by no means an inconsistency (one can find it today), males, I
believe, were eligible for compulsory military service in the Grande Armee
at age 18. What is the source for the majority age of 21?

Of broader import, and I think completely untouched in the literature, is
the effect of majority age on domestics in Jewish households at this time.
Indeed, the whole question of domestics, prominent in non-metropolitan
areas, seems to be neglected. What percentage were relatives? Orphans? Would
domestics be found in only well-to-do families or were they supplementary
labour power where ailing children were prominent? Did their contractual
relationship to their "lord" change at age 21?

Internment of German Jews on Isle of Man, May 1940 #unitedkingdom

MBernet@...
 

Can anyone guide me to information on the WW2 internment of Jewish refugees
born in Germany or Austria[n Empire!].

My father and many of our relatives and friends >from Tyneside were arrested
on a Sunday morning right after the German invasion of Holland and Belgium.
They were kept in a local army barracks then sent to Huyton Camp near
Liverpool where the food was inadequate.

They were then marched down to the docks between rows of jeering locals who
had been assured that these were Nazi spies and Sturmwaffe agents. >from there
they were shipped to the Isle of Man where, so I have heard, they were put
up in seaside hotels and had much autonomy. Orthodox people were able to stay
together and enjoy home-made kosher food and all religious obligations (My
father was let out early on health grounds; his first act was to organize the
dispatch of shofars and prayer books for the High Holydays.)

There were university-level lectures and courses with scholars and artists
of international rank.

I have been informed that the English genealogy magazine "Family Tree
Magazine" carried a two-part article "The internment of enemy civilians in
wartime Britain" by Tom Wood
in its November and December 1998 issues. Does anyone have a copy of this
article? Can anyone guide me to the text of the article on the web?

A year or two later, The United States interred most of its Japanese
residents. After the war there was an enquiry that resulted in an apology or the
former internees and a symbolic payment of compensation. Was that ever done
for these Jewish refugees in the UK?

Thanks for any information
