Concept of zustaendig in Austrian empire records #austria-czech

library@...
 

Dear Michael and other Genners,

There is one point that I am not sure was dicussed before.

The clerks incl. the ones who wrote Policejni prihlasky in Prague
sometimes mixed up the domicile (zustaendig) and the actual birth town.
The same mistake happened sometimes in marriage records (esp. in Vienna)
and ship manifests to US to name few exapmples. That mistake can make
life of family historian quite difficult lately. The good news however
is that it can direct the historian to the birth town of the father of
particular person.

ViewMate Translation Request - Either French or Dutch #general

Jacob Heisler
 

Hi everyone,

I found an Antwerp Police immigrant record I believe to be for a cousin of mine,
Isidore LANGER. He's the second to last person on the page, with the surname LANGER
underlined. I would really appreciate it if someone could translate his section for
me, along with anything else on the page that might be relevant to him. The page is
on ViewMate, found here:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM69440

I should also mention I have no idea whether this record is written in French or
Dutch. So if you know either language, please give this record a quick look (if
only to confirm which language this is).

Thank you for your time, and I wish everyone a happy and sweet new year!

From,
Jacob Heisler.

Assistance needed for various ancestors throughout Romania #romania

sharon yampell
 

My great grandmother Esther (nee DISTENFELD) LESSING had a sister Rose who married a
man named Nathan FIEDLER and they lived in Falcau, Romania. I can't find a marriage
record for them nor can I find a death record for either of them. Rose was born
approximately in 1890 in Vatra Dornei. Also >from my great grandmother's family,
she had another sister named Miryam who was married once in or near Vatra Dornei
but I don't know when or to whom. She and her first husband owned an inn with the
mineral spas that Vatra Dornei was known for and somehow he screwed her in the
divorce and she got nothing. Somehow Miryam hid during WW2 and since the quotas
to the US were full, she went to Israel and later married and died there.
Eventually when she was notified that she could come to the US, she opted to stay
in Israel. If anyone is lucky enough to find birthdates, wedding date, death
dates or more siblings of my 3x great grandparents, Dov Berel DISTENFELD and DVORA
HOLZMAN, I would do a a huge happy dance!!

My great grandfather Rubin LESSING had a younger brother Hersch/Herman who was
born on Jul 02, 1887 in Vatra Dornei but I can't find any death or marriage
records for him. He visited the United States but went back to Romania. I would
love to know if he had any descendents.One other thing about the LESSING family,
my great great grandfather's name was Chaim and I would love any information
about his life, did he have siblings? Who were his parents, When was born? When
did he marry Lena? When did he die? His wife was Lena ABRAHAMAWITZ; she was a
non--Jewish foundling that was raised in a Jewish household and I would love if
someone can find the same informaton on her too.

Finally, (at least for now ;) ), my Great Great Aunt Zlate (nee DISTENFELD)
married a Mechel SOMER and had two sons; Sruel who was born on Jan 24, 1884 in
Gura Humora, Romania and Leib who was born on May 24, 1885 in Gura Humora and
died on Sep 19, 1885 in Gura Humora. I am looking for a birthday, wedding date
and date of death for Mechel as well as the same for Sruel.

Accessing original record? #general

Sylvia Caras <Sylvia.Caras@...>
 

I've posted a birth record on ViewMate at the following address ...
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM69331
Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application or here

How do I get the original of this record? It's been suggested to me
that Badanov is a mistranscribing. I'd like to pursue this.

More on why, in case you want to know the background:

The name Badanov and it's variants is not common.

Joseph Bond (Yehuda Badanovitz) is my grandfather. We know nothing
about him before his immigration in 1892 except registering his
daughters' births in Bialystok in 1891 and that the language he listed
on his documents is Polish. I was not ever aware of any relatives
connected to his line.

His father's name and Hebrew name is >from Joseph's tombstone.

2-Shlioma-Shaya
3-Yehuda (Yudel) Badanovitz (1868-)

I have found these people.below. I think they are relatives, that
Itsko might be a brother of Shiloma-Shaya, my great great uncle, and
that Ginda's husband might be my father's (first) cousin. And Ginda
might be a sister of Girsh not a daughter. But this began with
Ginda's birth record, pictured on ViewMate.

1-Mikhel BADANOV (-)
2-Itsko BADANOV (1825-) +Gita (BADANOVSKY) (1822-)
3-Risia BADANOV (EPSHTEIN) (-) +Girsh Ariia EPSHTEIN (-)
4-Ginda EPSHTEIN (BADANOVITZ ) (1842-)

And if you have ideas, please suggest some next steps to find out how
the families are connected? I've poked around on passenger manifests
and Shoah records ... nothing obvious ...

MODERATOR NOTE: Sylvia's desire to see the original record is great. It is
always a good idea to look at original records rather than just indices.
When JewishGen posts a database, there is usually information about the content
of the database and location of original records.

In this example, one may go to the Belarus Births Index by clicking on the link
to the database. That will take one to
https://www.jewishgen.org/belarus/lists/belarus_births.html
where one may scroll down to see information on accessing original records.

Each Special Interest Group on JewishGen has its own structure. Belarus SIG is
organized by district research groups. The record Sylvia is interested in is
from the Grodno district and has not been accessed via Family History Library
microfilm. So, Sylvia needs to find the district lead.

One might do that by searching the Belarus SIG page at:
https://www.jewishgen.org/Belarus/
Another alternative would be to look at the right side of the JewishGen
donations page for ongoing Belarus SIG projects for the Grodno district:
https://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/

It's always good to know how to "fish" on JewishGen. There are many ways to
search on JewishGen. Others may offer other good alternatives and solutions.

Many thanks to all the wonderful people who helped me find the
information I was seeking regarding Celia FISCHER (aka Celia HARRIS,
Celia SHAPIRO). I had the wrong date of death, and have since learned
she died 06 Nov 1947; she is indeed buried in Acacia Cemetery, and I
have received a photo of her tombstone!
