Correction: Birth record of Faywel GEWIRCMAN - Request for translation from POLISH #poland

Tamar Amit <tamar.amit@...>
 

Dear Fellow Researchers:

I would be very grateful if someone would take a look at the following
1866 birth record >from Szczebrzeszyn, Poland. It is in Polish.
The JRI-Poland index indicates this should be the birth of Faywel son
of Moshe & Frieda GEWIRCMAN.

I would like to know the details in the record especially names and
places (as well as exact dates), but I would also like to obtain the
other details in the record.
Any help is appreciated.

The ViewMate file is VM6803, found at the following URL:
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=6803

I can provide a higher resolution image if helpful. Kindly reply to me
privately at tamar.amit@gmail.com . Thank you.

Tamar Amit, Israel.

Viguel de Sus or Felso Viso #hungary

moishe@langsam.com <moishe@...>
 

Hi,

I have an uncle that married in Barsana (Barczanfalva)
Romania in 1884. The records record his place of birth as
Viguel de Sus or Felso Viso.

Does anybody have any idea where this is and what it is
called today?

Thanks!

Vivian,
Most of my Lefkovits/Lefkovics family come >from that area (Zemplen County)
from the towns of Olaszliszka and >from Hajdusamson(Hajdu County). Do you have
any that you can trace back to these two towns and possibly also the town of
Bodrogkeresztur (Keresztur)?

Milton,
I saw your posting to the YT and V digest and thought I could help you,
albeit not in response to your question.
Over the past year and a half, I have photographed and partially translated
over 70,000 gravestone inscriptions >from thirty cemeteries in the NY/NJ
metro area. Among these 70,000, I have found some Botwinicks:
Makow Mazowiecki WA49 BOTWINCK Gertrude
Jedwabne BI01 BOTWINICK Samuel 21 Mar 1944 80 Zalman Mordechai
ben Zevulun 6335
Krasnosielc BD26 BOTWINICK Herman 14 Jul 1947 56 Chaim ben
Yitzchak Isaac 13694
Krasnosielc BD26 BOTWINICK Lena 10 Jan 1939 44 Lea bat Moshe
13670
Makow Mazowiecki WA49 BOTWINICK Ida
Makow Mazowiecki WA49 BOTWINICK Meyer

The first column indicates the name of the town that is associated with the
particular landsmanshaftn/synagogue plot. The second column is my code for
the cemetery and society name. Also included, when available, is the date of
death, age at death, Hebrew name of the deceased and father. Where were your
Botwinicks from?
Some of these I have full information for and others still remain to be
translated fully.
I hope this information aids you in your research.
You will also find my new web site of interest. It is a virtual (internet
only) museum of Jewish family history, and includes various exhibitions,
links and important information about our ancestors who are buried in NY/NJ
cemeteries. Most all can be accessed through the Site Map link. The URL is:
www.museumoffamilyhistory.com
I am also asking researchers like yourself for old family photos >from E.
Europe that I could use in various exhibitions on my web site. Also, I will
be creating a Yiddish/American Theatre "wing" to my museum, so if you have
anything, text/photos etc, that you think might pertain to Jewish
contribution to E. European/American culture, please let me know.
Otherwise, I hope that the info above is useful to you.
By the way, even though I grew up on Long Island, I did go to and graduate
from Temple University. I lived in Ambler for four years and had a
split-schedule the last two where I commuted half the time into Philly. I
graduated in 1974.

Billy Foster, Stage Comic #yiddish

Joel Ballon <westview.jjgen@...>
 

Hello Everyone,

I'm looking for family information about a possible relative who used the
stage name Billy FOSTER.
He performed as a stage comic. When performing in Pittsburgh he always
stayed with the Jacob KRAMER family, and was thought to be related to either the
KRAMER or BASMAN family.
Unfortunately this sketchy information is all I have.

Thanks,
Joel

Re: Naturalization Questions #general

Judith Lipmanson noted: " Some of the information on the Declaration
appeared to be erroneous -- probably deliberately on the part of my
grandfather . (He fudged about his age and his date of arrival -- two
habits he kept throughout his life.) I'm keeping in mind that this
information could be accurate and later information erroneous"

Just a note -- Many folks born in Eastern Europe during the late 1800s
did not know their birthdates. Unlike today, there was no requirement to
use it, and many came here with only a vague understanding of their exact
date of birth. My grandfather thought he was 2 years younger until he sent
for his Polish birth record; the new birthdate proved him not a minor at
the time his father naturalized. I have his letter to INS, apologizing for
voting for 40 years even though he was a non-citizen.

Then judith asked: "Was it a matter of weeks, months, or years between the
initial petition and final Petition? Was the entire process controlled
by the petitioner or by the Government at that time?"

The naturalization rules began in 1795, and the forms/questions were
determined by the various courts. Naturalization was standardized by
Federal Govt. in September of 1906. There were 3 papers: Declaration
of Intention (filed at least 2 years after arrival, also known as
“first papers” or "pa" on the census), the final Petition (filed at
least 5 years after arrival) and Certificate of Naturalization (which
has little genealogical information, but has the numbers which can lead
you to the DI and the Petition).. These filings also provided citizenship
to wives and minor children, but remember women did not have the right to
vote so there was no great motive for a women to become a citizen.

The problem has always been that naturalization could be done in any
court... local, state, federal...and the documents and indexes are in
multiple archives. So the research is complicated.

In my husband's family, the older generation of husbands and wives are
buried in the same plot, opposite each other and separated by a path.
I guess they wanted to replicate their synagogue life.
