FRISCHMAN-SCHWARTZ/SHMULEWITZ- some success #romania

Yehuda L Frischman <rebyidel@...>
 

I again want to thank the many of you who have helped me unravel the
mystery of our Yichus, in Europe, Scranton, and Israel. B"H I have
clearly tracked my paternal great-grandparents back to Europe: My
father's father's family FRISCHMAN to Beregszasz, now in the Ukraine,
and just a few miles >from Munkacz, and my father's mother's family
SCHWARTZ to Michalovce/Revisce, just across the border in Slovakia, and
also just 20 or so miles >from Munkacz. It also turns out that my
father's grandfather's mother's maiden name was SHMULEWITZ, and so either
the Scranton name change I mentioned in an earlier email was from
SCHWARTZ to SHMULEWITZ and not visa-versa as I previously reported, or
the Shmulewitz's were cousins and not brothers of my ggf Josef SCHWARTZ.
There are still many other unanswered questions, particularly on the
FRISCHMAN side, so any additional help is sincerely appreciated.

Authenticating Romanian Birth/Marriage Certificates #romania

Michael Pearl <mpearl@...>
 

I have engaged a genealogical researcher in Iasi and begun to receive
supposed copies of birth and marriage certificates for the period between
1850-1900. Can anyone suggest an authoritative third party that can
substantiate the authenticity of these documents?

Some of the documents appear to be recent transcriptions but without any
sort of State Seal or other governmental mark to substantiate their origin.
I have got to be as sure as possible that the documents provided are not
bogus.

Thanks to any and all for your anticipated help in this matter.

Please respond privately unless you have suggestions of a
general nature on how to find corporate archives.
Don't know if this will help. Most newspapers have an Action
Line or something similar where people can email or write in
for help and Action Line or its counterpart will make efforts
to find the corporate entity. Some times they even reach a party
who has the info and offers to send it to you. It's a free
service of the newspaper.

Also if I remember correctly Sylvania was a major brand sold
only by Sears, now it is Kenmore. Try looking under that brand
name....and contact Sears too.

Origin of my surname Zimmak #general

Fred Zimmak <Fred.Zimmak@...>
 

Hello,

I asked about where my surname Zimmak could come >from and I
got answers to that. A big thank you to everyone who helped me.

It seems that the origin for Zimmak would be Tzemach - tzaddeh,
mem, chet - in Hebrew, which means plant, sprout or root. And
could be used as a male first name. So it's possible that my
grandfather Wolff Zimmak's own father was named Tzemach. If he
lived at the time when Jews had to take family names, he might
have taken that as his last name, since prior to that he would
have been known as Ze'ev Tzemach in Hebrew. The name was also
used for Messiah. The name is not common, but it's ok to use.

Another answer is that the name Zimak and Zimek (but not with mm)
derives >from the village of Ziemaki, in Makov district., Poland.
This could be a village near Sieldce, about 100 Km >from Makow.
The source is >from a book written by Alexander Beider who made
a survey of Jewish surnames in early 20th century Poland:
Dictionary of Jewish surnames >from the Kingdom of Poland.

This gives me a hint what to look for. Maybee to many things
to look for. I don't know if things became easier. Because it
is very many ways to spell Tzemach.

Could my ancestors used the name in two ways? One wich comes
from the Hebrew word. And one that sounds more Polish.

Death Notice #southafrica

Prof Gilbert Herbert <herbert@...>
 

This is our first posting to the SA SIG, and is an appeal for help.

We have a document (source unknown) relating to a death in the Cape Province
in 1905, entitled:
Death Notice (Pursuant to the Provisions contained in Section 9, Ordinance
No. 104). As against the normal Death Certificate, with its limited
information, this Death Notice has a wealth of additional genealogical
information, including the deceased’s birthplace, occupation, place and date
of death, names of surviving spouse and previous spouses, and names of all
children (and their spouses, if any). The document was to be sent to the
Master of the Supreme Court in Cape Town, or the Resident Magistrate of the
District.

We have two queries:
a) Was this type of document, apparently a legal requirement, limited to the
Cape Province?
b) Where are these documents stored, and how can they be retrieved? If they
are in the State Archives, what is the official name of the archives, and
its address?
