Re: Florida Death Certificate Images #general

Sandra and Donald Hirschhorn <sdh2381@...>
 

I would appreciate it if this information was sent to the Discussion Group
as many of us have family members who died in Dade County, Fl (and Broward
County as well) and could use this information.
I for one was never aware of such a website.

A while back I found a site that allowed me to see, online, the image of
actual death certificates for individuals who died in Dade County, FL. I
thought that I bookmarked the site but can no longer find it. If anyone
knows how to access this site, please let me know.


registration versus living location #general

Ruth Hyman <ruth.hyman@...>
 

Dear Genners:
I am trying somewhat fruitlessly to find a real explanation of why
someone would be registered in one town but living in another. If
someone was originally registered, for example, in Pikiliai, did he stay
on that list through all revisions until a brand new list (it seems
there were 10 all together) was made? Forever?
Thanks a lot,

Re: REICH > RICH? - tracing original Jewish family name #general

Dream Builder <dreambuilder@...>
 

My RACHMAN / RECHMAN and ZAIDELMAN / ZEIDELMAN ancestors emigrated from
Kishinev, Moldova through England to Philadelphia, PA, USA in 1907 aided by
HIAS. The men emigrated the previous year through Ellis Island and saved
money for tickets at the Jewish bank in Philadelphia. It is likely they were
previously of a German family and relocated later to the area(s) of Poland,
Austria-Hungary, and Russia (basically, Eastern Europe). Borders in that
part of the world changed very frequently prior to World War I (the time
period Nicholas RICH is discussing).

Subject: REICH > RICH? - tracing original Jewish family name

Nicholas Rich asks: <"My great-grandfather was a German subject and his brother
a Russian/Polish subject. Their surname in this country was RICH which I would
guess was changed >from something else. What is my best hope of trying to find
out their original surname? Is it possible to find passenger lists? They were
Jews and came into the UK with their parents when they were children sometime
around 1870.">

It would have helped if Nicholas had given us the first names of his great-
grandfather and his brother as well as the earliest date he had for the name
RICH. Assuming the family was in England in 1870 - you can only find two
RICH born in Germany and two born in Poland in the 1871 census. There are a
few more, but they do not appear, because of the indexing system:
see for example:

There are 48 listings in 1871 for REICH [which is the German word for RICH].
If you enter the word Preussen [or the word spelled with the sharp German S]
in a "keyword" search or "place of birth" search under "parish or place", you
will find four REICH - and two are seamen.

KISSIN to COHEN #general

Paul & Irene Berman <ikpjb@...>
 

Mr. KISSIN may have changed the name to Cohen because 1) Kissin could sound
rather funny in English, 2) he was a Cohen, or a member of the priestly
caste. People rarely took the name Cohen or Levy if they were not members of
these castes because, as a Cohen or a Levy, a man has a special role within
the synagogue service and to take the name otherwise would be dishonest. I
know one person whose long Polish family name was changed by an immigration
officer upon the family's arrival in England to Cohen, although they were
not Cohanim (priests). However, some of the family, as religiously
observant Jews, felt uncomfortable with the name and changed it to something
else.

Need current email for Chaya GENOSSAR #general

I was in touch with Chaya GENOSSAR a while ago regarding the "IRAM" family. I
tried reaching her at the email I had for her, chaya_g_1@...,
and it bounced back. A couple of other people said they have the
same email for her. Does anyone have a current, working, email?
Thanks, Leslie Weinberg

Re: Sloboda and Slobodka #belarus

Eilat Gordin Levitan
 


To my best knowledge, there were no places
named Slobodka near Vilna (Vilnius). It was one near Kovno, Lithuania
(Slobodka), densely populated by Jews before WWII....
Dear Aharon,
It is true that Slobodka near Kovno is most well known in the Jewish
history for the Slobodka Yeshiva and the Musar movement, I think that
anyone would refer to it as it is in Kovno, Lithuania. ( I was there
and you could not clearly tell where Slobodka and Kovno are split)
There were other Slobodkas in the Vilna region. The Vilna region(
including the city of Vilna) was part of Poland between the wars. Now
much of that region is in Belarus. It is best to check the 1930 census
to see if they reported that they came >from Poland or Lithuania.
Sometimes it is wrong it is "Russia" which would be right only until
c 1920, but in most cases people knew by 1930 the political changes of
their country of birth.
