Death of Nat Abramowitz #poland

EDENSARA@...
 

The following was posted by Dr. Naomi Lowi of Montreal on the JewishGen and
Romanian Sig Discussion Groups today, August 29.

She has requested that I post it here as Nat was involved with both JRI and
GG due to his interest in Tyczyn, Poland.

He will be sorely missed and I'm sure everyone joins me in expressing
condolences to Lucille.

Lucille (nee Rader) ABRAMOWITZ gave me permission to tell you of the death
of her husband,Nat P.Abramowitz ,on August 24,2002. Cause of death was a
heart attack. Nat was a strong contributor to Romanian Jewish genealogy
and especially to the history of Jewish life in the town of Podu Iloaiei.
He translated a book of 168 pages >from Romanian to English,describing the
history,local economy,cultural activities etc. including several censuses
of the Jews living in the town. Rom-Sig News vol.5,number 2 reported on
this project. Nat was an engineer by profession. He lived in Westmont.
N.J. and leaves,besides his wife,Lucille,2 sons Arthur and Robert and
their
families,a brother Lewis Allen,and many friends.

Rosemary Lane Synagogue #unitedkingdom

Hazel Dakers <hazel.dakers@...>
 

Does anyone know of any records of what I imagine was a tiny synagogue
(referred to by Cecil Roth) in Rosemary Lane, off Upper East Smithfield near
the Tower of London? I wonder if my ancestors of Upper East Smithfield
attended there and whether this may be why I seem unable to find their vital
records through the United Synagogue Archives.

HO Papers from PRO #unitedkingdom

Jjlaca@...
 

Some time ago, I sent off my 10 pounds to get an estimate of the costs to have copies of my grandfather's immigration file (pre 1920) sent to me. This was done using the PRO's website. Although the payment went through my credit card, the PRO did not have a record of the order. After we got that straightened out, I was advised by a very nice lady that she had retrieved the file, which contained 1941 documents and was not related to immigration at all.

The HO Paper number I gave her was 215,214. The records she obtained were 215/214. I had pointed this out but she decided to send me a sample of the 215/214 documents anyway (at no cost to me).

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I should proceed to try to get the correct file?

Many thanks, in advance.

Peter & Mary Blundell <pmblundell1@...>
 

Dear listers,

I have asked for information on this family before, but now I find we have
the wrong marriage certificate.

The marriage I want is abt. 1848 Morris SAMUEL abt 23/4 yrs old and Amelia
COHEN abt 19 yrs.
It appears Amelia was the daughter of Isaac COHEN, who had been living in
Portsea for many years, till his death in abt 1843

The marriage would have taken place in the Spitalfields area I think, as
that is where they lived after.

Would any one have access to Synagogue records for this area or anywhere
they think likely.
I would be very Grateful for any information, as I am very limited in what I
can do.

Waiting hopefully,
Mary
Monto Qld.

1901 Census - Address Search #unitedkingdom

LaurenceCardon@...
 

Barry Young asked how to obtain a census record >from an address (my
paraphrase of his question).


An address search was a planned feature of the 1901 Census Online (even as
late as November 2001 - when it was published in the User Guide), but
unfortunately the functionality was dropped prior to initial release in
January 2002. So, as far as I am aware, searching by street is not possible.

One option is look up the street in the 1901 street finding aids (at the FRC
or PRO at Kew) to obtain the piece number and folio(s) in exactly the same
way you would if using a census microfilm - one or more folio numbers may be
given. Armed with that information the direct search facility on-line can
be used.
