Books on costume #general

elisal@...
 

Hi everyone, I am researching old family photos to help my brother with
geneology research for our family. We would like to date the photos using
the fashion our family members wore. I am looking for a good historical book
on costume for 19th - early 20th century costume for Eastern Europeans and
immigrants to the US.
I am a history major in college, but not have much so far locating a book
for the area I am researching. Anyone have any luck finding a good source?

Re: ROSENHEIMS IN LONDON #unitedkingdom

Lesley Hannah <hannahl@...>
 

Sorry, Louise, I expressed myself badly. I had found Herman and several(maybe all) of his children on Jewishgen which is excellent, because they give the father's name and profession, which makes it easy. What I meant to say was on Ancestry BMD and the censuses I've found lots of other Rosenheims, all living in the same area, and involved in the same line of business, but have no way of making the link. It's these Rosenheims that I think may make the connection with Herman's wider family.

I'm fairly sure in my own mind that the Joseph Rosenheim living next door to Herman in 1871 must be related - they're in the same business for one thing. However in 1881 Joseph and his family are in Liverpool. My husband is sure there wasn't a branch of the family in Liverpool, but is he mistaken . . . ?

I'm hoping maybe someone knowing about the Liverpool Rosenheims will be able to confirm or deny the family connection, and I think this forum is the most likely place to get to know them.

Thanks for your message, and best regards
Lesley

Dear Lesley

I am surprised you write that you have found numerous Birth, Marriage and
Death records not available on the JewishGen databases.

I have had a quick look through the All-UK and Supplementary UK databases on
JCR-UK and have come across quite a number of Rosenheims including a Herman
who is buried in Balls Pond Road Cemetery and who died on 5th February 1904
aged 70. This seems to tally with your Herman born c 1834.

I hope that this is of help to you.

Subject: [jcr-uk] ROSENHEIMS IN LONDON

I'm hoping someone can help me with my husband's family. His mother was
Elsie Rosenheim, born in London 1906; her father was Willy Rosenheim, a wine
merchant born 1874 in London. I know (>from censuses) that Willy's father was
Herman Rosenheim, born in Bavaria c1834.

Unfortunately that's all I know about Willy's family. He and his family
lived in Hampstead London. I'm hoping to trace Herman's brothers and
sisters, which will be the next step in finding his parents.

Re: WWI records #germany

Andreas J Schwab <andreas.schwab@...>
 

Dear Janet,
Germany at the beginning of the 20th century was a confederation, and
each state had its own military organization with its own military
archive. In order to find any records, you must first know to which
state the unit belonged where the soldier served. Generally, it is
virtually impossible to find any record if you do not know the exact unit.

Visit the following website to learn more about German WWI records:

For Austria, contact the Austrian War Archive in Vieanna:

Szejma Zmarl #poland

Hi,
Robert Strumwasser states on Tue, 9 Aug 2005
"I recently came across the name "Szejma Zmarl" in the
1939 Census of Biala Podlaska.After searching the Given
Names DataBase (GNDB), I've concluded that "Zmarl" is
"Shmarya." Does this appear to be correct? As for
"Szejma," I'm guessing that it's "Shmuel," as
the GNDB gives one Yiddish nickname as "Shmie."
Does anyone have any different/better thoughts?"

Just yesterday I did a soundex search for my
g-g-grandmother Sima Milbauer and the names Szejma and
Szijma came up.

Re: Publishing genealogies #general

Entity Scheimer, Deborah uttered this profundity:

Webmasters beware: you
should be hiding your online family histories behind passwords that you
only reveal to relatives and others you can trust. Alternatively, you
can put "Living XXX" (where XXX is the appropriate surname) with no
other revealing information for anyone living. The benefit of using the
"Living XXX" option is that your family history is available to
Google-type searches so that potential relatives can find you.
I will soon be publishing my family's genealogy so it will be searchable by
Google. I do plan to remove personal information for living people, such as
birthdates. As a webmaster concerned with privacy this seems appropriate.

Am I on the right track here? As Yehuda said, I want to facilitate finding
ancestors to others searching online, as I am the first to ever catalogue
the family tree.

Any advice welcome.

Negative search for grandparents' marriage certificate from NY Vital Records Dept #general

I have hit a bit of a brick wall in my search for my
grandparents' marriage certificate in either Brooklyn
or Manhatten >from 1907-1909. Using these dates is
based on info >from the 1910 Federal census, which
indicates that they were married two years when the
census was taken.

Should I expand the years searched as well as other
locations? So far as I know, they only ever lived in
Brooklyn, but of course they could have been married
somewhere else.

Part of the problem is that my grandfather has an
extremely common name -- Barnet/Barney Cohen -- and I
haven't yet definitely found his immigration record
anywhere (Ellis Island, pay genealogy web sites). I'm
quite frustrated with this as well. I'm thinking he
probably came over under another name, but none of the
"sounds like" search tools have brought up anyone I
can definitely identify as my grandfather.

I'd be very grateful for some suggestions to help me
get past this roadblock -- thanks in advance.
