Re: Name changes in the UK #general

Nick Landau <N.Landau@...>
 

This morning I received my new passport, a very official document. At my
request it has my "new" name, adopted by me in 1975. It only took a cover
letter, no legal document, no announcement in the press. I hope that
clarifies the situation once and for all. Incidentally, when my younger
daughter married she did not adopt her husband's surname. Consequently
when
I came across the entries for her two children whilst searching at the
Family Records Center in Islingtion, London, I discovered that each child
had two entries with different surnames but only a single certificate
number.

Annotaions on Manifest for Ellis Island Arrival #general

I have reviewed available information pertaining to annotations on ship
manifests on Jewish Gen, but have not found an explanation for the
following. It is listed with my grandmother's name (Feige BRUCK; arrival
21Aug1913). I'd appreciate any help to explaining the annotation. She had
returned to Russia for two years and this was her re-entry into the US.
(It is not the Alien Registration Number that I have)

Women & Naturalization #general

Charles F. Printz <cfphrai@...>
 

Dear Colleagues -

In a 31/Jan/04 message, Shani writing >from Haifa Israel asked the following
question concerning naturalization -

It has been previously stated, that between 1907 and
1921 a woman would automatically acquire her husband's
citizenship. In view of this, does a separate
"Declaration of Intention" exist and how should I ask
for it when writing to the County Clerk's Office
(State Supreme Court, Division of Old Records) in 60
Centre Street, New York ?
[Would I receive the wife's records by simply ordering
those of her husband?]
Many thanks for any reply.

An excellent source and general history of women and the naturalization process
can be found in the quarterly magazine issued by NARA called Prologue. The INS
(now BCI) historian, Marian Smith, has a very good history on the subject
(1802-1940) in the the September 1998, Volume 30, No. 2 issue of Prologue. The
magazine can be located at the following address:
http://www.archives.gov/publications/prologue/index.html. Once at the main site,
you will see a section called Genealogy Notes. This in turn will take you to some
articles listed under immigration and naturalization, which will include the
referenced article on women.

As an immigration law practioner, I have found her history to be very useful in my
current day practice when certain questions on derivative citizenship thru ones
grandmother have arisen that required research back a number of years.

I hope this information is of help.

Best wishes,

Chuck Printz,

In October of 2001, I started a search for family on Jewish Genealogy
Digest.
I also have received some information >from Polish Archives on my father’s
family >from Archives in Rodzyn, Poland. In the past 9 months, I have located
my father’s cousin living in Israel and the United States. I also found out
that some members of my father’s family have immigrated to Buenos Aires,
Argentina before WW 2.
I have located grave of Ana Arbeit of SZTEINKLAPER who died July 3, 1964
Buenos Aires Her grave is in Tablada Cemetery (the largest Jewish cemetery
of Argentina)....she Manzana B - Tablon 28 - Sepultura 49. I am looking for
any one that by any chance in Buenos Aires knows or knew of Szteinklaper
family. The family may have changed the name to Stein or other name? Looking
for any information on Szteinklaper family.

I am also researching my mothers name GRUSZNIEWSKA(I).
In Buenos Aires, there is also Rose (Gruszniewski) Goldsztern family related
to my mother. I would like to make a contact with my mother’s long lost
family. My grandmother name was Estera Maria Gruszniewska; she had a sister
Doba Gruszniewska >from Miedzyrzec Podlaski, Poland.

Estera Maria Gruszniewska and her husband Mordka Richter died in 1921 from
mushroom poisoning. If any one has any information pertaining to the
families.

R' Samuel of Woydislaw in Fuerth #rabbinic

Association GenAmi <asso.genami@...>
 

In his book about the Jews of Fuerth, Lowenstein mentions a Rabbi
Samuel of Woydislaw.

A daughter of his married the Rabbi of London, Uri Phoebus ben
Naphtali Zwi HAMBURGER. She died in 1705.

He also had a son called Joseph. Does anyone know anything about
this son, Joseph? I would be very happy to receive any information.

The amazing 24th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy #france

Pierre Hahn <pierre28@...>
 

Some questions have been asked about our website
<www.jewishgen.org/jerusalem2004>
and when we are going to post the registration form and program.
The short answer is by the middle of February.

The program committee is evaluating an enormous number of very
excellent papers that have been proposed. We promised to get this job
done by the end of January. Since proposals are still coming in, even
though the deadline was the end of December, we extended our own
deadline by a number of weeks. Believe me when I tell you that the
program will be positively outstanding. We have so many excellent
proposals - more than twice the number we can possibly have presented
- that we are going to be able to pick and chose only the absolute
best.
Hotel rates are already posted on our website -
[direct link: www.ortra.com/jgen2004/registration.asp ]
I think you will be more than happy with the inexpensive rates we
have arranged. And don't forget that those rates include all service
charges and taxes as well as our famous, gigantic Israeli breakfast!!
[For myself, that is all I can manage to eat in a day!] The rates per
adult person in a double room are - are you ready for this? - between
$40 and $48. For sure it would cost you more just to stay at home! So
come to our magnificent and unique city of Jerusalem, which was one
of the official seven wonders of the world!
Our Conference is not only going to be outstanding as far as Archival
cooperation and input, but it is probably going to be the best
conference in terms of quality and breadth that the IAJGS has ever
had. We have prepared several databases which we have put on CDs and
which will be given free to full paying registrants. These include:
--The Memorials of Vanished Communities (the very first cataloging of
Israeli memorials of the Jewish Communities destroyed during the
Shoah);
--1875 Montifiore Census of the Jewish Population of Eretz Israel;
--Helkat Mehokek (Translation of Hebrew tombstone inscriptions found
on Mount of Olives);
--An Index to the Jacobi Collection of Family Trees;
--Sephardic and Mizrachi Genealogical Research in Israel;
--Index of Family and Private Archives at the Central Archives for the
History of the Jewish People (a collections of private and family
archives);
--A guide to the Archives and Archival Material for Genealogical Use
in Israel;
and more!
If you have any questions, join our online discussion group

Early 19th Century Schnaittach Records #germany

I am looking for information about a Gottlieb COHN/KOHN/KUHN, who may have
been born in Schnaittach, Bavaria in 1801. He may have had a brother Wolf
COHN/KOHN/KUHN, born in Schnaittach in 1812 or 1813. Eventually the family moved
to Cincinnati and spelled their name COHEN.

Gottlieb and Wolf's father may have been the brother of Aaron COHEN (KUHN),
who was born in 1758 in Schnaittach, the son of Moses COHEN (KUHN) (1733-1813)
of Schnaittach.

Does anyone have any Schnaittach records >from this period that could be
helpful? Any suggestions of where to look?
