According to current German/English dictionary *Ledig* means single,
unmarried. In reference to a child, it means illegitimate.

Is this helpful?

Hello!
I'm new in this group (and it's my first message).
Welcome to the club!

My name is Mario STECHER and I'm trying to confirm the exactly town
where my family came >from Poland. My father, Hersz STECHER, born on
January 01 1930, and the Born cetificate mentioned Sokolow. But I find
many towns and shtetl with the same name. His father, Leibish STECHER born
on January 15 1903, but I don't know in what town. All the people that
help me in the last time tell me that the correct Town is Sokolow
Malopolsky.

Anybody know where I can find any data by Internet to confirm if this
is the correct Town? (like census, marriage, born register, etc.). So I
can begin to construct the origins of my family.

Good luck with your search. But be aware that you will not be able to
acquire documentation of your father's 1930 birth, or probably anything
about his father either, >from any official source. At present, Polish
vital records are considered to be in the public dowmain only to the end
of the nineteenth century.

I, like many others of us, would give my eye teeth for access to the
birth, marriage, and death records of my family >from 1900 to the Holocaust
that murdered any still then alive. Since all are dead, it is hard to see
that anyone's "privacy" would be compromised by publication. My point is
only that you are far >from alone in being frustrated by the 1900 cutoff.

Re: SSDI Query #general

Mindie Kaplan <rayvenna@...>
 

If you know enough to get a death certificate, the death certificate is
usually less expensive and more informative although the social security
application has the advantage of being filled out by the person
him/herself.

A social security application includes the following:

social security number
name of individual
current mailing address
birth name
age at last birthday
date of birth
place of birth
father's name
mother's name
sex
race
employer
date applied
signature

Good luck!

I think I have found a couple of relatives on the SSDI. As I am in
England could someone who already has sent off for this tell me what do
you actually get and what does it really tell you? If the person is
Is it worth me sending off for?

My grandmother, Anna SHERMAN, arrived >from the Ukraine/Russia, as a young
woman. (so I've been told). Her father's name was listed as John SHERMAN
and her mother as Fannie ZUCKERMAN. Her birthdate was listed as 01/1897.
She died in Central Islip Psychiatric Hospital in 1959, after being there
for 14 years. I don't know when she arrived in the U.S. (NYC), but was
told by my mother before her death that she probably arrived as a young
woman. She had two sisters, Freida and Pauline, and at least one brother,
Nathan,(possibly another brother). She married Francis ANSEL sometime
before 1925. Francis's father was Hyman David ANSELL. He married Flora
LISS. His mother's name was listed as ANSHELOWITZ on his application for
social security. I'm not sure where to go >from here. Any suggestions would
be appreciated. Also hoping that some of these names might be familiar to
someone. I'm trying to learn more about my Jewish heritage.

Thanks for reading.
