For those of you interested in the famous author and artist, Bruno Schulz,
who taught and lived in Drohobycz, I've posted a drawing he did in the 1930s
of Stella BARTISCHAN (BARTISZAN), whose family lived in the nearby spa town
of Truskawicz (Truskawiec), Galicia. (Poland)

Truskawiec, also known as "Strawberry Village," was famous for its mineral
waters and beautiful villa/hotels in the midst of a coniferous forest.

Re: Eloping in 1930s NY #general

Joy Rich <joyrichny@...>
 

For the time period you're interested in, the Department of Health issued
marriage certificates and the City Clerk issued marriage licenses. A couple
could register with one agency, the other, or both.

The Municipal Archives has DOH marriage certificates and their indexes
through 1937 (the last year they were issued).
http://www.nyc.gov/html/records/html/vitalrecords/marriage.shtml .

Muni has grooms indexes and brides indexes for City Clerk marriage licenses
for 1908-1951, but it only has the licenses for 1908-1929. Licenses from
1930 are only available at the City Clerk's Office.

Dear Genners,
For some time, I've been searching for the marriage license of Rose Arlene
FROST. The 1930 US Census has her as single and living at home in
Brooklyn, but the marriage license for her *second* marriage states that
she was granted a divorce in Brooklyn in 1934. The story I was told is
that the first marriage was probably an elopement, with an Italian man, and
the marriage didn't last long.

I located a 1930 Brooklyn marriage cert, but it turned out to be the wrong
Rose FROST. I've checked the marriage index for all the NYC boroughs for
1930-1934 with no luck. (I've been told I do not qualify to obtain a copy
of the divorce decree -- which would make everything quite simple.) At
this point, I'm wondering if they went out-of-state to get married.

I know Elkton, MD was a popular place for quickie marriages in the late
1930s and 1940s. Were there any other places relatively close to NYC in
the early 1930s where a couple could easily get married?

Elisabeth Derix VANLEEUWEN, 1923 - 1998, ? > San Diego, California #general

Teri Tillman <natzrose@...>
 

I am searching for someone who may have known an Elisabeth M. VAN LEEUWEN
who was named as the informant on the death certificate of Gertrude WINOGRAD
who died 23 April 1988 in San Diego, California. Elisabeth, listed as a
friend, was living at XXXX Mt. Alifan Drive in San Diego, at the time of
Gertrude's death. I believe this Elisabeth was the same Elisabeth M.
VANLEEUWEN who died 24 April 1998 in San Diego County, CA. An online
California death record for the Elisabeth who died in 1998 lists her
father's surname as DERIX and her mother's maiden name as WOLTGENS.
Elisabeth Derix VANLEEUWEN was born 25 January 1923 outside the United
States.
I am interested in Elisabeth solely because of her connection to Gertrude
WINOGRAD. Gertrude, born 1902 in Russia, immigrated to the U.S.A. about
1913, and spent most of her adult life living in New York (Rochester and
later the Bronx). She was employed for an unknown number of years as a
secretary at the Jewish Museum in New York City. She served as the executrix
of the estate of Millie Marx of Manhattan, NY, whose family I am
researching, and as such, was the last person known to possess Millie Marx's
family papers. Gertrude, who never married, was preceded in death by her
mother, Sarah Hirschenbaum WINOGRAD, her unmarried brother, Harold WINOGRAD,
and most likely also by her sister, Esther WINOGRAD, so trying to contact
any of Gertrude's immediate family is not a possibility.

I would appreciate hearing >from anyone who might have been acquainted with
either Gertrude WINOGRAD or Elisabeth Derix VANLEEUWEN. Thank you.

Dr. Erno SCHWARCZ #general

Dear Genners,

I contacted you some months ago, asking you to help me with my search for my
grandfather and his family.

I've been investigating now for more than 30 years, the last 5 of them very
intensely. I learned a lot, and I collected plenty of material.
In the end, I was looking for my uncle, because he was told to be the
closest living relative to my grandfather and me. After having written to
you I learned that some information was inprecise. Luckily I could find out
in different archives the precise data, finally. One says that there are no
miracles; but I learned that there are: One week ago I found my uncle and
his wife - and simultaneously three cousins. What I knew about the tragic
faith of my grandfather, Dr. Erno SCHWARCZ, sadly turned out to be true: he
was killed, together with his younger son, in a December's night in 1944 in
Budapest >from Hungarian nazis ("Kreuzpfeiler").

I'm thankful and endlessly happy now, that I found my uncle and my cousins!

I would like to thank you for your advices and all the mails.

I wish you all the best,

Giselle Bodziony

FALIK and variants from Suceava #romania

jfa2000@...
 

First, many many thanks to all who have so productively helped me with FALIKMAN and GROSS
searches. What a kindness! Here is material that may help others in their
Falik/Falikman search. I acquired the following data a couple of years
ago though I did not realize then how to utilize it for my own work. These
sig-lists teach us so much.... I wonder if what looks like "Czernelitze"
is actually a mistaken transliteration of "Czernowitz". That would suggest connection
at least by naming patterns to the Falikman people I know >from Czernowitz!


The registers of vital records for Suceava do not show the name Falikman, but they do show the name Falik in different orthography ( Fallik,
>Fallek,Fellik, Fallig, Falik). Here is a list of these
>records:
1. 1887 - Marriage of Fellik Fallik, 68, widow, son of Sloim and Freida,
with Freide Fellik, daughter of Itzig-Mendel and Elka-Sura
2. 1890 - Death of Lea Falik, daughter of Hersch and Sura
3. 1891 - Death of Antschel Falik, son of Leib and Beile
4. 1894 - Death of Bureh Falik, son of Hersch and Sura Falik residents in
Czernelitze. Dead certificate issued by the physician of the Hospital from
Itcani.
5. 1908 - Birth of Eva Falik, daughter of Isac-Samuel and Feige Falik,
daughter of Markus and Chawe Fresser. The parents married in Czernelitze in
1902.
6. 1911 - Birth of Chane Hudel Falik, daughter of the same parents, resid.
in Parhoutz.
7. 1913 - Birth of Rachel, the same parents, resid. in Parhauti.
8. 1914 - Marriage of Nathan Falic, son of Sura, with Pepi Schapira.
9. 1918 - Marriage of Mendel Fallic, born 1887,son of Itzac-Leib and Beila
Rifca, with Blima Rosentswer.
10.1919 - Birth of Kohos Falik, son of Isac-Samuel and Feige from
