Searching: Bernie & Daisy Marie (born 1933, daughter of Heini & Gertie FRANK) [surname not known] #general

Peter Lowe <Peter.Lowe@...>
 

I would be grateful if anyone can put me in contact with any of this family,
or suggest how I might do so. The information I have is:

Daisy Marie (or Maria) FRANK (born 13 Dec 1933, probably in Prague) is the
daughter of Heini FRANK (2 May 1905in Prague-1945 in Mauthausen) and Gertie
BROCK (1912-1991, San Mateo CA). Gertie was married in the US to John C. Van
Den BOER (1916-1973 in San Francisco). Heini FRANK was my mother's cousin,
and I believe Daisy lived with my mother's mother in Prague before their
deportation.

Daisy married Bernie [surname not known to me] on 3 Jul 1956, and had these
children:
Michelle: born about 1958
Kim : born about 1961
Denise born Jun 1964

I guess they live(d) in California, maybe in San Francisco or San Mateo, but
do not know

Is the California Birth and Marriage Index that was available on Rootsweb
still available somehere on the Internet ?

Thank you

In reading the current issue of "Landsman", it states the town of
Stawiski, Poland in Lomza Gubernia was a "private" town, i.e. owned by the
nobility. Does anyone know the name of the nobility who owned Stawiski?
After hearing Gayle Schissel Riley's most informative lecture on Magnate
Landowners at the Toronto Conference, I am hoping to find the Magnate
Landowner archives for Stawiski. Has anyone else had any success in this
endeavor?
Hi Jan,

Polish language Stawiski website at:
http://www.powiatkolno.home.pl/hisstaw.htm
prints the folllowing information about the town history:

Satwiski has been mentioned in the historical documents for the first time
in 1426 as the "private village"
Town name is most probbaly originated >from large amount of the ponds in this
area (In Polish water pond = staw).
from 1426 locality was known as Stawiska and >from 1430 as Stawiski. At the
end of 17th century owner of the reginal lands Fortunat Zamoyski has
established a town which was known as Furtunatow, following his name. This
name was not generally accepted and name Stawiski has been restablished.
Till Poland's lost its independence at the end of 18 century, Satwiski have
been administered by the Mazowiecki Province. In 1975 town was under the
Prussian rule, and between 1807 to 1815 was a part of the Warsaw
Principality. In 1870 Stawiski have lost its town priviledges and regain it
again in 1919 in the independent Poland.

It appears Jan, that the member of the mighty Zamoyski family was the
Magnate that you have been looking for.
I could not locate more data about the lucky name owner, count Fortunat
Zamoyski.

Obituary in Sao Paulo, Brazil #general

JGLois@...
 

Can someone in Sao Paulo tell me if the newspapers there carry
written obits, and if they are available online. I need the obit of
someone who died last Tuesday, Aug 13th. If it is possible to find it
online, I will need a translation, but that's another problem.

Re: Where would I find naturalization and citizenship #general

Dolph Klein <kledolph@...>
 

Before you contact anyone, look at the certificates for the Petition
Numbers (different >from the Certificate Numbers) and the names and
location of the Courts (or County Clerks) >from which the naturalizations
were handled.

For example, Petitions (PET) handled by the State Supreme Court of New York
County are located at the NY County Clerk's Office on Chambers Street.
Those handled by the State Supreme Court of Kings County are located in the
Kings County Clerk's Office in Brooklyn. NARA-Northeast has the petitions
from the U.S. District Court of the Southern District of New York. Many of
the petitions will also have the original copies of the Certificate of
Arrival (COA) and the Declaration of Intent (DEC). The COAs are useful in
that they give the person's exact name as it appeared in the ship manifest.
One of my uncles came here under an assumed name entirely different than
his own. This was the only way I was able to find his manifest.

If your folks were naturalized in upper New York State, chances are that
you may have to contact the New York State archives in Albany, or one of
the county clerk's offices, or NARA if the naturalization occurred in the
U.S. District Court of the Western District of NY. The Petition Number will
facilitate the search for the naturalization papers.

I have in my possession the Certificate of Naturalization for my husband's
grandfather and the Certificate of Citizenship for my husband's
grandmother. They resided in Plattsburgh, NY. Does anyone know where I
would go or write (i.e. NY State archives or NARA archives) to obtain
further information >from their original applications that might give me
more info on their lives than what is on the actual certificates? I am
particularly interested in knowing what city they came from.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Re: Where would I find naturalization and citizenship applications? #general

David Cooper <dcooper000@...>
 

Fraida,

The documents you want to see are the "Declaration of Intent" and the
"Petition for Naturalization". These could have been filed at either a
county court or the US District Court (where filed should be on the
certificate). If filed at a county court, then you will have to contact
that court to see where their archives are located. If filed at a US
District Court, then you should be able to get a copy via NARA.

Re: Where would I find naturalization and citizenship applications? #general

Doug Cohen
 

The Certificate is nice, but the application for naturalization is the more
important document. It's in the archives of the court which issued the
certificate. The archives are likely at the NARA branch for the district in
which the court was located. So, read the bottom of the certificate, and
figure out what court. Call the nearest NARA branch and ask them if they
have the records (or if not, who does). Then get the application and the
certificate of arrival attached to it. With that info, you'll know the ship
and date of arrival. Then contact NARA and get the manifest page -- which
will tell you where they came from.
