Marriage Certificate Format/Names #general

Seth Rogoff <seth_82@...>
 

Hi all,

Wonder if someone can help me.

My Great Grandmothers name was Sarah Marks (according to her
daughter and her own death certificate) [She married a
Hyman Goldstein]. However, I searched and searched for their
marriage entry in the register and could not
find anything under Marks, Sarah, for the date that
they married.

After spending a day at the Family Research Centre I
discovered that there was an entry for a Hyman Goldstein
(my gt grandfather) who married someone with the surname
Business(?). I looked under 'B' for this surname and there
it was...Business, Marks...then under that was Sarah M.
(Both these entries had exactly the same vol/ref numbers.

I asked the staff to have a look on the certificate for
me before I purchased it and in the section for name,
apparently it has Sarah Marks (her surname is underlined),
then under her surname it is written Business...

Could her name have been Sarah Marks Business (?) ....
or does this mean the marriage was a convenience marriage? :-)
Maybe I'm thick but I don't understand that...

If any one could help, would be great if you could send
me a private email as I dont always get time to check
the discussion messages....

Many thanks
Seth

Announcing: Lodz Ghetto Database #general

Warren Blatt <wblatt@...>
 

JewishGen and Yad Vashem are pleased to announce the availability
of a major new resource -- the Lodz Ghetto Database, a record of
the 240,000 inhabitants of the Lodz Ghetto.

< http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Poland/LodzGhetto.html >.

Prior to World War II, one-third of the 665,000 inhabitants of
the Polish city of Lodz were Jewish. On September 8, 1939, the
city was captured by the Germans and renamed "Litzmannstadt".
In 1940, a ghetto was created and sealed off. Transports arrived
from many other towns in Poland and throughout Europe.
Population registry books were kept by the Judenrat (Jewish
council) of the Lodz ghetto, >from the time of establishment of the
Ghetto in February 1940 until just prior to its liquidation in
August 1944. The records were maintained by apartment address,
and were updated on a continuing basis. In addition to the names
of the residents in an apartment, these records sometimes include
the former addresses, dates of birth, occupation, and date of
deportation or death of the individual.

There are approximately 242,000 separate entries on the database,
which tracks the movement of individuals into, within, and out of
the ghetto.

Yad Vashem, with the assistance of the Organization of Former
Residents of Lodz in Israel, was able to purchase a copy of the
registers >from the Polish State Archives. The result was
published by the Organization of Former Residents of Lodz in Israel
in a five volume set: "Lodz-Names: List of the Ghetto Inhabitants,
1940-1944", and was later digitized by volunteers at Yad Vashem.

We gratefully acknowledge the generosity of the Organization of
Former Residents of Lodz in Israel (Tel Aviv); and Yad Vashem,
The Holocaust Martyrs and Heroes Remembrance Authority (Jerusalem),
for making this remarkable database available to JewishGen.


The new Lodz Ghetto Database can be found at
< http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Poland/LodzGhetto.html >,
and this data is also now included in the All Poland Database
and JewishGen's Holocaust Database:
< http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Poland > and
< http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Holocaust >.

We Remember Jewish Plock! #general

Ada Holtzman
 

I am pleased to inform you that I have posted the entire
English part of the Plock Yizkor Book, " PLOTZK (PLOCK) A History
of an Ancient Jewish Community in Poland", editor Eliahu Eisenberg,
Plotzker Association in Israel, Tel Aviv 1967.

Plock with Kalisz and Poznan are considered to be the most ancient
communities in Poland. There is evidence of Jewish existence in Plock
already in 1237... A cruel deportation already in February 1941
destroyed this grand community, 10,000 souls were murdered by
the Germans, most of them in Treblinka.

The English part is not a complete translation of the Yizkor book of Plock
but rather a synopsis, summary, and should be treated as such. there are 684
pages in Hebrew and Yiddish but only 96 pages in English.

I have translated and added the titles and page numbers of articles which do
not appear in the English summary. I added the code "H" if article is in
Hebrew, or "Y" if in Yiddish.

I have added also the sub-chapters to the various articles, which are not
included in the original Table Of Contents. On many occasions I have added
from the Hebrew and Yiddish parts of the book also names of people
mentioned in the articles, when that was possible, mainly in the Holocaust
chapters.

I have also added the names of people who appear in the photographs to the
captions in English which did not include these names. My hope is to scan
and add the 270 photographs to the memorial web site.

I wish to thank the Plock Landsmanschaft who encouraged me and gave me and
JewishGen the permission, together with their blessing, to post the Plock
Yizkor book in the Internet.

Does anyone know if there is such a thing as a birth index for
either Texas or Missouri that covers the 1880's? I am looking
for several dates of birth in those states.

Please post replies to the group.

Thank you,

British Death Certificates #unitedkingdom

Jackye Sullins <jsullins@...>
 

Hi,

You must be extremely lucky with death certificates. Rarely have I gotten
one where the informant has been anyone other than the hospital or the
doctor and never have the parents names been listed or even the spouse.
They don't even say where the person is buried.

No updates to Social Security Death Index #general

m leonards <m_leonards@...>
 

I recently noticed that the free on-line Social Security Death
Indexes are not being updated. Using Stephen Morse's site,
I tested all the Indexes for any SMITHs who died in February 2004,
and the only one that returned any hits was the fee-based
Ancestry (which is apparently updated through May 2004).
Rootsweb's SSDI site used to tell you the date to
which it was current, but no longer does so.
