Public School records revisited #general

David Priever
 

Dear Fellow Jewishgenners,

It has been long since I have touched this subject though lately several
people have contacted me regarding an interest in locating their ancestors
public school record. When I last did this about 6 years ago I received
several requests and was able to obtain the records for only a small
percentage of those people.

The Following Pertains Mainly to Elementary, Middle, Intermediate and Junior
High School Requests.

It is absolutely a hit and miss situation. If the school is still there,
having the staff (if I am not able to do it myself) go down to the basement
is a sometimes unhappy venture for them (dust, mold, having to move boxes to
get to the file cabinets, finding the file cabinets). One of my requestors
from six years ago was a bit upset that I came up empty, but after being
told by the school secretary that they were doing asbestos cleaning in the
room in which the old records were kept as well as other excuses, I told the
requestor their request should come directly >from them---and be adamant!!!!!

If the school is not there, *to* Which Current School Were The Records
Transferred? This is not finding the "needle in the haystack" that we all
know about, but "finding the haystack". Not a difficult search but a little
bit time consuming.

I have been a very strong proponent of the NYC Department of Education
making *all* Pupil Office Cards available to genealogists. A must mention:
Accessibility is restricted through a federal law, I believe called the
Family and Student (or Children's) Act (I wish I had done my homework on
that before posting), but since the principal is the primary custodian of
these records, they have the final say in releasing or not releasing the
record to the requestor. This is why I tell anyone who emails me a request,
"please include a letter giving me permission to obtain the record on your
behalf".

I can once again take requests as I did long ago, but my teaching scenario
has now changed so I *can* go to pretty much any school in NYC (Staten Island
is very difficult, the Bronx a little less difficult due to travelling).
Please remember the following information to include:

1-Name of student at time of attendance
2-date of birth
3-address(es) at time of attendance-*this is vital* to identify correct school
*and* to identify multiple same named students (one Brooklyn school had 20 Ida
COHENs).
4-Parents names (same reason as #3)

If you know the school number, that would be *outstanding*!

Include a letter giving me permission to obtain the record on your behalf.
If the student is deceased, please include appropriate verification of that
so I can present it to the Pupil Accounting Secretary.

and *please* remember that during the school year the Pupil Accounting
Secretary is busy with upkeeping the records of as few as 500 and perhaps as
many as 2000 children >from the current school year. These search duties may
fall on a school aide or other school staff member whose responsibilities
are also very great.

I can only do my best and with my smile, it usually goes the extra mile.
Please be patient. Since this is a one person effort/offer, it could take
me a week to several weeks or more to get this completed.

When summer vacation comes at the end of June, then my ability to do these
searches plummets close to zero. I can enter the school and hope office
staff is there and hope that they can do the search, but that is really
pushing it. By all means, open the storage room and I'll be glad to search
myself!!!!!!

*For high school records*, it is best to write to the school yourself. I am
very unfamiliar with their procedures but do know that you would write to
either the guidance office, Student records officer or principal, Attn: Old
Student Records. Include the same information listed above or contact the
school and ask for their procedures.

Please contact me privately at: brooklyn1960@hotmail.com

I hope this has been helpful and I hope my efforts for any of you will be
100% successful.

A Zissen Pesach to everyone.

Sincerely,

Re: the exchange between Shoshana L. Boublil --

"My grandfather A"H studied at Yeshivat Ram Ma'ailos in Vilnius
around 1906 with Rabbi Eliezer Silver (the Rosh Yeshiva was Rav
Chaim Ozer Grozinsky)"

and Ben-Tsion Klibansky --

"In 1906 [Remaile's Yeshiva] wasn't still under the sponsorship
of Rabbi Chaim Ozer"

Rabbi Silver was born in 1882 and emigrated to Harrisburg, PA in
1907, according to the article on him in Encyclopedia Judaica. Therefore
he would have been 24 years old in 1906.

The article lists five rabbis under whom Rabbi Silver studied,
apparently listed in chronological order judging >from the locations:

DVINSK (closest to Abel, near the Latvian border, where Rabbi
Silver was born) -- Rabbis Meir Simhah ha-Kohen and Joseph Rozin

VILNA -- Rabbi Chaim Ozer Grodzinsky

BREST-LITOVSK -- Rabbi Chaim Soloveichik

Perhaps this information will help with Shoshana's detective work
of determining what happened when and where.

Torigin (Tauragnai) article by Joseph Rosin #lithuania

Assaf Urieli <assaf@...>
 

Hi all,

On the shtetlinks area of the JewishGen, there is a history of
Taragin/Torigin (Tauragnai), Lithuania, written by Dr. Joseph Rosin, and
translated by Sarah and Mordechai Kopfstein.
This can be found at:
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Tauragnai/tau_file/rosin.htm

In the article he mentions a rabbi, Yosef-Yehoshua Utianer (----1874),
which I believe may well be my great-great-great grandfather, Yoseph
Yehoshua Rabinovitch son of Rabbi Dov Ber Turitser Jaffe.

Does anybody here know contact details for Dr. Rosin, to find out where
he gathered this information?

Are there any other places to go for information on the rabbis of Torigin?

Searching for Descendants of Morris (Moses) Wohl and Sara Civi Schwartz Wohl #galicia

Scott Horwitz <horwitzzz_2000@...>
 

Morris (Moses) is my ggf's brother whose branch of the
family stayed in New York.

Morris (Moses) Wuhl, son of Chaim Wuhl and Beile
Ruchel Michel, b. October 26, 1870 in Brzezany,
Galicia, Married Sara Civi Schwarz January 4, 1896.

Children - William born c. 1898, Abraham born c. 1899,
Sam born c. 1901, and Herman born c. 1905.

According to the 1900 census Moses (or Morris) arrived
to the US in 1896. All of their children were born in
the US. He is listed in the 1900 and 1910 as a baker,
and 1920 census as having no employment. William Wohl
is listed in the 1930 census as having married a woman
named Jennie whose family was >from Hungary, and they
had at least two children (Julian b. 1924, and Ruth b.
1925). Herman Wohl is listed in the 1930 census as
having married an Austrian woman (who spoke Hungarian)
named Mollie and they had a daughter (Beile or Belle,
b. 1926). Herman is listed as a delivery driver for a
bakery. I have no further information for Sam or
Jacob Wohl.


Please contact me if you have any information on how
to contact the descendants of these families.

Shchirets/Szczerzec cemetery #galicia

If you might be interested in pooling resources to hire someone to
photograph the gravestones in the Jewish cemetery of Shchirets, Ukraine
(formerly, Szczerzec), near Lviv, please contact me privately. I found
someone willing to search for and photograph the single gravestone there
that interests me, and am exploring whether it would cost less per person to
photograph many (all?) gravestones.
