I do not agree. The ages on marriage certificates are not always accurate. I have seen some where the ages are given as 'full' when the parties were in fact under ages. Or if they were of legal age they do not tell us the actual age. And ages might be wrong. One bride whose certificate I have gave her address as 25 in 1905 when she was in fact born in 1877. Her hsuband was younger.

Dear Sylvia,

Members of JGSGB can access the Jewish Chronicle Death Announcements in
"Members Corner" of the web-site. At present they cover the period (with
Stone-Setting announcements) 1993-2004 but are being added to
continually.

The JGSGB web-site, even without the exclusive "Members Corner" contains
a wealth of information.

Regards

Martyn Woolf
Chairman.

British death certificates #unitedkingdom

Can I amend this? SCOTTISH birth certificates give: marital status, name of
spouse, father's name, father's occupation, mother's name and maiden
surname, who registered the marriage and their relationship to the
deceased.

I think Jackye means ENGLISH death certificates.

INTRO - researching ancestors of Jacob OPPENHEIM, Frankfurt A/M #germany

Uri Rosenan <rosenan@...>
 

Hello GerSigs,

I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for about 1
year. I consider myself to be a novice in doing German Jewish Genealogy
research. I live in the city of Yehud, in Israel. My native language is Hebrew
and I also know English & German (speak and read). I consider myself expert in
using a computer. My experience in using the Internet is extensive.

I have identified the names and birth and death dates of all of my
grandparents, all of my great grandparents and all of my great great
grandparents.

I have started recently in a follow up genealogy research, based on the
findings left to me by my late father, who spent a lot of time during his
last years (he died in 1976) researching our family origins. He definitely
was an expert in the field of German Jewish Genealogy. Much of the findings
I have are the ancestors of Jacob OPPENHEIM (died 1864) of Frankfurt A/M,
who is my great great father. Their research was done by Dr. Ettlinger,
commissioned by my father, yielding about 500 names dating back to the 14th
century. The records include details about their professions, financial
situation, litigations, the houses they lived in etc. I am currently
bringing this collection on the computer and trying to enlarge it.

other names occurring frequently in my family tree are: ROSENAU, HOCHSCHILD,
FRAENKEL, LANDAU, SCHUR and BEHRENDT.

Re: MAIDEN NAME OF WIFE #southafrica

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

The maiden name of the wife can also be seen in the South African estate
records or marriage records held by the Mormons. These can be viewed on
microfilm which are ordered and then send to your local Mormon Family
History Center.

Further information on these microfilms can be seen on the SA SIG web site:
http://www.jewishgen.org/SAfrica/mormon-fhc/index.htm

Not everyone will have an estate record, particularly women, but looking at
the husband's estate record can be helpful. I found confirmation of the
maiden name of my great aunt, where she was married, and some other facts
about her in the estate record of her husband. All this was particularly
useful as my great aunt did not die in South Africa, but in Palestine, where
no further records can be found.

My great grandmother, on the other hand, only had a Death Register listing
available at the Gardens Shul in Cape Town and also found in the Mormons
microfilm. This did not provide her maiden name, but did give her father's
first name.
