Polish Population Registers - Any specifrics in Suwalki or Warsaw? #general

Robert Zavos <rzavos@...>
 

Per Stanley Diamond's response to Fred Hoffman's comments on Polish Book of
Residents I would like to know if anyone has has ever found these for a few
of my key towns. In particular, Stanley Diamond has suggested Books of
Residents have never been found for Raczki, Sejne, Punsk (all in Suwalki) or
even Warsaw. Has anybody ever seen these for any of these or nearby towns?.
How about Warsaw? How can there be no data for Polands largest city? Was
nothing ever sent to some other major European/American city or some
University that escaped the ravages of WW2?

Re: Brownsville Obits #general

Does anyone know what newspaper carried obituaries for Yiddish speaking
working class Jews who lived in Brownsville Brooklyn in June 1916?

My g-grandfather died >from asphyxiation by illuminating gas in a suicide
according to his death certificate. Coroner's inquest records for Brooklyn
at that time have been lost. I am also wondering if there were police
inquiries published in newspapers.

Any ideas on this? Thanks.

source of NY State town, city, and county contact info #general

Renee Steinig <rsteinig@...>
 

For vital events that occurred in New York State (excluding New York City
and, at one time, Albany, Buffalo, and Yonkers), records are filed both with
the town or city clerk and the State. With prices now at $30 for vital
records >from the New York State Dept. of Health ($22 for genealogy copies),
these local offices are a good alternative. Two clerks I recently contacted,
in the towns of Liberty and Monroe, charged $10 each for death records and
mailed them within a week. Like the State, the local clerks apply
restrictions to the release of marriage and death records under 50 years old
and birth records under 75 years old.

For links to the official government websites for counties, cities, towns,
and villages in New York State see:

www.nysegov.com/citguide.cfm?context=citguide&content=munibyalpha

Note that in NYC metropolitan area counties of Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester,
and Rockland, and perhaps elsewhere in the state, towns are large
governmental entities that encompass many communities. For example, my own
community, Dix Hills, is part of the larger Town of Huntington. If you don't
find a locality on the list, you'll need to look into the political
divisions of the area.

Status Update on the Proposed US Regulations Addressing Access to Birth Records #general

jan meisels allen <janmallen@...>
 

Dear Jewish Genners:

This is a status update on the proposed regulations addressing access to
birth records resulting >from enactment of the Intelligence Reform Act by the
U.S. Congress and signed into law by President Bush December 2004.

The latest information is that public review will likely NOT start until
summer (August) 2006! Once the proposed regulations are released, the
public review time is a sixty (60) day process. The Department of Health
and Human Services (HHS) has determined that they need an independent
economic analysis of the cost of the what they are proposing. They are
hoping to award a cost/benefit contract by the end of this month (January
2006) . Once the cost benefit analysis is completed, HHS and the Office of
Management Budget (OMB) will have a political discussion about the
regulations, focusing on whether the federal government has the budget and
ability to enforce the proposed regulations.

The FGS/NGS Records Preservation and Access Committee, on which the IAJGS is
represented, submitted on behalf of the genealogical community, a
recommendation to HHS staff last Fall, to permit the states to provide
informational birth record copies. It is our understanding that the current
recommendation will allow non-certified copies to be made available and or
retained.

However, until the proposed regulations are released this summer, nothing
is 100% certain. When the proposed regulations are released this summer
this is a provision we will work hard to assure is included and retained, or
if it is not included for it to be included. IAJGS will keep you informed
as to when the proposed regulations are available.

the Echo at http://www.iajgs.org/echo/echoissues.htm. In order to read this

Hello all,

I would like to publically thank all the very many
genners who replied to my query.

It would appear that it's Kiev Guberniya, although
some did suggest Kovno, but based on other facts that
I have, Kiev is the right one.

Much obliged to all.

TURNER #general

NRD1616@...
 

Upon researching the TURNER family,
I found Rav Yitzchok Turner, who wrote Manhegai Ashkanaz, towards the
end of the 1400s. He was one of the last Rishonim.
Legend has it that his daughter married the Prince of Hungary,
who became a Ger Zedek. He was killed before the child was born.
Does anyone have any followup on that child?

There was a Wolf Torna who married Bondel Eshkeles, >from the
famous Viennese family, in the 1700s. She was a descendent >from
Rebbe Reb Hesehel. Doe anyone have more info about this family?

Mt. Hebron Cemetery NY burial #general

Stephanie Weiner <laguna@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I've got a strange event here. My grandmother's nephew, Benjamin
Wachsberger, died in NYC December 17, 1936. According to his death
certificate, he was buried at Mt. Hebron Cemetery. I called the cemetery
last week, and was told they have no record of his burial. Alternate
spellings of Waxberger and Waksberger were tried, to no avail. Even if
he was later disinterred and buried elsewhere, I would assume the
cemetery would have a record of the disinterment, if not of the cemetery
to which he would have been removed. Can anyone suggest other possibilities?
