WPA Survey of NY Synagogues & NY Synagogues Questions #general

EEllman@...
 

Question 1. The WPA Federal Writers Project Survey of State and Local
Historical Records (1939) of Synagogues in NY is, according to an Ada
Greenblatt article on the Internet
(http://home.att.net/~JGSNYCem/synagogues.htm), is found New York City
Municipal Archives (Microfilm #'s (M.N.) 21318-21322, Roll #'s 319-323).
Does anyone know if these films are available >from the LDS or are they just
available in NY? I am interested in

* Talmud Torah of Flatbush, Form No. W-53; Card No., 670; Organized 1919.
* Bnai Judah Anshe Zeiswer (East NY?), Card No. 281; Organized 1913 D
(defunct by 1939 survey).
* M.N. #21319, Roll #320 and #21320, Roll #321
Form, W-54; Card, 549; Organized 1902 Congregation (Chevrah) Tifereth Israel
* Congregation (Chevrah) Tifereth Israel Anshei Krasilover (Krasilow) Glory
of Israel, Men of Krasilov, Bronx, Form, W-54; Card, 549.
* Talmud Torah Tifereth Israel, Form, W-42; Card, 999.

Question 2. I had two sets of Great Grandparents marry in 1904 at 62 Pitt
St. and 125 Rivington St. Other than the marriage licenses, which are
silent on the issue, how would I find out if these addresses corresponded
to synagogues and if so, which ones?

Thank you and L'Shana Tova,

Drapers Traveller? #general

Larry Jenkins <lnjnyc@...>
 

Well, I've searched and searched the net and cannot find a definition for
this job description listed on the 1901 UK Census for my Great-Grandfather
and Grandfather: Drapers Traveller.

Can anyone here enlighten me?

Thank you in advance,

ROZINSKY.Now - what would Joel appear as in Jewish records ? What
equivalent names should I look for ?

Joel is already a Hebrew name, one of the 12 *minor prophets* in the
Bible: spelling is yud-vav-aleph-lamed. Not one of the more common names,
but it is used: e.g. the late Satmar Rebbe, Yoel Teitelbaum. *Yoilish*
is a variant.

Of course the usual caution applies: he might have had some other name
but chose Joel for his English name because he liked it.

South Africa Newspaper? #general

B51MC <b51mc@...>
 

A friend has found the obit notices for her great grandmother and great
grandfather in The Jewish Chronicle of Manchester, England (1913 & 1914).
There was a notation *South African newspaper please copy.*

Any suggestions as to which S.A. newspaper would copy the obit? Were
there one or two *newspapers of record*for this time period, especially
such papers which would have been read by the Jewish community? (She had
long thought that she had relatives who went directly >from Russia to South
Africa, but does not know where they settled.)

(For the record: Mary Cohen d. Dec. 21, 1913; Fischel Cohen d. August 15,
1914)

Thank you in advance for any assistance!

London Name Change #general

DUMAY, Jocelyne
 

Can somebody tell me how I can find the year of a change of name, certainly
made in 1898 or so ?
My great grandfather married in 1898 in London and the marriage act shows a
change of name (he has not the same as his father). If I receive this
information, perhaps I will find the birth and death dates of my ancestor.
Thank you for all answer.

NYC Death Certificate - SUFFIN #general

Mel Sofian <msofian@...>
 

I have received >from the New York City Municipal Archives a death
certificate of one Sarah SUFFIN. I had sent for a certificate relating
to my grandmother who has a very similar name, and died in the same year,
The certificate I received has no relevance to my family, and I would be
happy to pass it along to anyone related to SUFFIN.

Please respond privately, and give one or two details for identification,
and the certificate will be mailed to you.

R. Yakov Yitzchak ben Asher of Przysucha - Ha-Yehudi Ha-Kadosh #rabbinic

Stephen H. Rabinowitz <srabinow@...>
 

On 2002.09.18, Melinda Korbman <MKorbman@levi.com> asked,

Where could I find more information on him and his lineage?
Regarding the lineage of R. Yakov Yitzchak ben Asher of Przysucha,

I have found names for at least three sons of the Yehudi -

1) Jerachmeel, also known as Jerachmeel Moshe RUBINOWICZ
2) Nechemiah RUBINOWICZ
3) Asher, also known as Yoshua Asher RUBINOWICZ

One branch of the Yehudi's family is found in Neil Rosenstein's book "The
Unbroken Chain," Chapter IV.

Official Date- 1930 Census #general

Jackye Sullins <jsullins@...>
 

Someone recently wrote that the 1930 census may have been taken in April
but the information given was for January 1st. When I visited the NARA
site, it says the official date was April 1st. The following is what
people were covered:

Name
Name of each person whose place of abode on April 1, 1930, was in this
family. Enter surname first, then the given name, and middle initial, if
any. Include every person living on April 1, 1930. Omit children born since
April 1, 1930.

Just wanted to clear up the misconception.
