Seek GUTTERMAN b. 28 Dec. 1834 > New York NY #germany

Peter John Hinton <peter@...>
 

MODERATOR NOTE: Be sure to ask also in the EarlyAmerican SIG forum. MOD

I am trying to trace where Henry GITTERMAN came >from in Bavaria and who his
parents were. I know he was born 28 Dec 1834 and was brought by his parents
to the US as an infant. In the 1840 US Federal census I have found an entry
which, with other sources, seems to indicate that his father was M
GUTTERMAN. If this was the original spelling of the name, Henry had changed
it by the time he became a naturalized US citizen on 10 Jan 1856 as Henry
GITTERMAN. The court concerned was the Court of Common Pleas of New York
County. Question: Does this court still exist and if so how can one get
access to the papers? I am hoping - if the procedure is anything like it was
in UK in those days - that in the application for naturalization the place
of birth and names of parents would appear.

My second question is regarding the surname. Would I be right in suggesting
that the name recorded as GUTTERMAN in the census might, in fact, have been
either GUITERMAN or G├╝TTERMAN, and that both these names would have been
pronounced as GITTERMAN? This would perhaps have prompted Henry to change
his name to the latter since that was how it should be pronounced anyway.

I would be very grateful for any help on these two questions.

Researching a criminal #general

Stephen,

I'm not an attorney, but I think I can help.

The New York State Archives in Albany ( http://www.archives.nysed.gov/ )
has many different sets of records regarding Auburn Prison, including
(but certainly not limited to) the following:

B0067
Registers of male inmates received, 1870-1953
Auburn Prison.

B1222
Inmate record cards, 1915-1970
Auburn Prison.

14610-88D
Auburn Prison inmate case files, [ca. 1926]-1956 (bulk 1935-1956)
New York (State). Dept. of Correction. Division of Administration

14610-77A
Auburn Prison inmate case files, 1914-[ca. 1950]
New York (State). Dept. of Correction. Division of Administration

B0082
Auburn Prison inmate parole files, 1918-1955
New York (State). Board of Parole.

B0053
Registers of female inmates received, 1893-1933
Auburn Prison.

B1272
Inmate work assignment record cards, [ca. 1915-1932]
Auburn Prison.

Your best bet would be to go through the first set of records to
get the admission date and inmate number. But first you may want
to find a newspaper article that provides information of when the
crime or trial occurred. This will most likely narrow down the
amount of time required to find the proper information considerably.

I will be giving a talk, "Researching Jewish Criminals, Especially in
NY", at the IAJGS Conference in August. You may want to attend. ;-)

Dear genners -

A man I am researching has turned up in the 1930 Census as an inmate
at the state prison in Auburn. New York. Any ideas on how to find out
why he was in jail or when he got out ?

Surely there must be a way to work back >from his status as a prisoner
to a record of the court procedure that put him there.

Is there a lawyer in the house?

Re: New Gedenkbuch for Germany #general

I emailed the informational address given on the URL recently posted
regarding the updated Gedenkbuch for Germany. [The previous, 2-volume
edition covered only the territory in post-war Germany. The new, 4-volume
edition also covers regions that were Germany during WWII, but are now other
countries]. In addition to ordering information, which has already been
posted, I asked about the availability of a CD version. I was told that when
one buys the 4 volumes, a CD is included. At present, you must buy the paper
edition to get the CD, but they plan to make the CD available by itself in 2
to 3 months. People with limited space may wish to wait.
