Re: Citizenship question #general

Judith Romney Wegner
 

Would an immigrant husband receive citizenship by marrying
a native born wife in 1928?

The rule is not the same in every country, and you didn't specify which
country you had in mind. In the case of Britain, my husband (who as a
Kindertransportee was an immigrant to England >from Austria) did *not*
acquire British citizenship by marrying me -- and that was in 1956!
However, had he been the Briton and I the Austrian, I would in fact have
received British citizenship by marrying him!

Possibly the USA in 1956 may have had a different set of rules, but I don't
know what the rules were. Interestingly, though, I do recall that we were
able to immigrate to USA on the British quota (i.e. my quota) which enabled
us to come right away, whereas the Austrian quota (i.e. my husband's quota)
would probably have required us to wait several years!

Re: Census/Eldridge Street, New York #general

Rose asked "... Can anyone tell me what District Eldridge Street
in New York was located in for the 1900 US Federal Census."
Eldridge St. is in the lower east side of Manhattan. I have a
partial copy of a map I got at the LDS FHC for the 1900 Census (#1033889,
item5,(&4)). The best I can make out for Eldridge St. is the following
ED's (starting at the south and working north) 165, 167, 178, 176, 177,
178, 181, 180, 185, 187, 184, 186, 131, 193. Some of these span the

Look up at the Cemetery, North Homestead, OH #hungary

Susanna Vendel <susanna.vendel@...>
 

Could somebody help me to check the archives at the cemetery Sunset
Memorial Park, North Holmstead, OH?
I have the following information:

Jean R Wagner
Born: 7 may 1898, Sighetu Marmatiei, Romania (Hungary)
Died: 29 Mar 1962
Burried at Section 2B, Lot 25, grave 5
Sunset Memorial Park 440-777-0450
Corrected grave #6
Next of kin Rena C Kurtz 3751 Rock River Drive, Cleveland, OH

The address was as of 1947 when they purchased the plot. Rena's plot is
unused and empty.

I would like to find out if there is any information at the cemetery about
living family members who cares for the grave.

It looks like my relative Jean R WAGNER changed his religion when he
married Rena KURTZ. That could be an explanation why he cut all contact
with the rest of the family.

Thank you,
Susanna Vendel, Stockholm

Wroclaw (Breslau) Gravestone files, ca 1900 - 1939 #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

Jewish Records Indexing - Poland is pleased to announce
the completion of indexing of surviving Wroclaw Matzevah
files, (ca 1900 - 1939) in the holdings of the Jewish Historical
Institute, Warsaw.

This project is part of the JRI-Poland / Jewish Genealogical
Society, Inc. (New York) initiative to index records of genealogical
value at the Jewish Historical Institute and follows on the heels
of the very successful Krakow Marriages and Banns project.

Each of the 623 matzevah files includes a sketch and dimensions
of the gravestone, surname and given name of the deceased,
date of death and often date of birth, surname and given names
of the person who ordered the matzevah (and relationship to the
deceased), date of the funeral, location of cemetery (town), name
of funeral office. The project web page includes samples of three
documents.

The web page also includes a list of all surnames appearing in
these records.

The URL for the JRI-Poland / JGSNY project at the Jewish
Historical Institute is: http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/jri-jhi.htm
Scroll down to Project 5, Wroclaw Matzevah/Gravestone files.

The fundraising target for this initiative is $360. Contributors of
$36 will be eligible to immediately receive an Excel file with all
entries. Check the web site for instructions on how to contribute

When funding is complete, the full extracts of these records will
be added to the JRI-Poland on-line searchable database. We
invite all Wroclaw researchers to help us meet the target for
this project.

Czestochowa and nearby -- birth, marriage, and death records #poland

Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

On behalf of Jewish Records Indexing - Poland, I am pleased to
announce the beginning of the JRI-Poland / Polish State Archives
project to index the vital records for towns in the Czestochowa
Archives not filmed by the Mormons.

Here are the towns that are included, along with the town
coordinator for each town. (Note that town coordinators are
still needed for Czestochowa and Szczekociny.)

o Czestochowa -- TBA
o Janow -- Daniel Kazez <dkazez@mail.wittenberg.edu>
o Klobuck -- Gloria Berkenstat Freund <glory1@worldnet.att.net>
o Krzepice -- Mark A. Shilling <shilling@texas.net>

o Przyrow -- Daniel Kazez <dkazez@mail.wittenberg.edu>
o Szczekociny -- TBA
o Zarki -- Alan Radack <alrack@gis.net>

I have agreed to be the Archive Coordinator for this project,
because my family lived in this area all the way back to the
early 1800s.

I would like offer my thanks to Jewish Records Indexing - Poland
(for making arrangements with the Polish State Archives), to
Michael Chen (for his stage-setting work on the LDS films for the
town of Czestochowa), to Mark Shilling (who inventoried the
records for Praszka and Krzepice), to Leah Jordan Bisel (for
working with the films for Szczekociny), and to Morris Wirth (who
inventoried the LDS microfilms of the Jewish records for all the
other towns in the Czestochowa project!). (Who did I miss??)

If you would like to know what surnames appear in some of
these these records, please look here:

For Czestochowa--

Information will be posted soon.

The necessary indices for the Czestochowa Archives have already
been made--for a total of over 19,000 vital records! We invite
researchers with an interest in these towns to contribute to the
indexing work. Researchers contributing a certain minimum for
a particular town will be eligible to receive an Excel File with
all the indices for that town. (See below, "FOR EXCEL.") Here
are the towns (and the number of records) that have been indexed
and the fundraising targets for the indexing of each town:

TOWN --------- YEARS --- RECORDS - FUNDS NEEDED - FOR EXCEL

Zarki -------- 1885-95 - 1945* --- $291.00 ------ $50
*It possible that additional records will arrive
for these towns.

Indices to records for each town will be released to the JRI-
Poland database as soon as the work for that town is funded.
(Researchers contributing the minimums mentioned above will
receive the Excel File in advance of public release!)

Please help us ensure that current and future generations of
researchers for these towns will have easy access to the records
of their families. No donation is too small!

FURLET genealogy #general

Scott & Patricia Vickery <ppvick@...>
 

Researching a man by the name of Boruch Furlet b. 25 Jan. 1892 in
Drogichin, Belarus. He came to the USA in 1907 aboard the ship Saratov.
He was sponsored by his sister ( Mrs. Kaplan ) of Chicago, Illinois.
Boruch was a tailor by trade. I believe he used the name Benjamin
Furlet after he arrived in the USA. >from 1907 -1925 he resided in the
Chicago area. He married Minnette Levie on 9 July 1924 or 1925.
Minnette's parents were Lester Levie & Anna Goodman. Boruch sired one
son by this marriage. The son was Robert Levie Furlet b.12 Jan. 1925
d. 21 Oct.1995. Robert married Mary Vickery on 22 Aug 1948. Boruch left
his wife Minnette( about the time his son was born) never to be heard
from again. There is a chance that Boruch's father was Avram Furlet, but
that is just a hunch. Thanks: Scott

Does anyone have a Max SIEGAL (born Meilach Solistowski in Szczuczyn,

Instructions needed - where do I go from here - Tax & Voters List #general

Rica Goldberg
 

Dear Genners

My husband whose surname is Goldberg says his late father said that their
real surname in Lithuania was (sounded like) Schluzitel. A cousin of my
late father-in-laws who is still alive says the family came >from Abolnik
which I believe today is called Valbalninkas.

I have looked at the ALL Lithuanian Database, inserted the name Schluzitel
and on the Tax & Voters lists are two families, one of which is shown to
live in Valbalninkas in 1892.

Question 1:- with all the information given regarding page number, record
number archive number etc etc to whom do I write and how much is it likely
to cost me to get fuller information? I am not sure if this is my
husbands family but need to investigate.

Question 2:- In the comments column it says he is a "small proprietor".
Would this mean he had a small shop?

Question 3:- In the column headed "Given Name" it says Gerts. Can anyone
throw any light on this name or maybe it is part of a name? My husband is
named after someone called Moisha Getzel (Getsel). Could this name Gerts
be Getsel?

It also states that there are 3 males and 4 females in the family. This
too would fit with the information we know about the siblings etc etc.

TRAPIDO #general

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

Interested in finding the descendants of Peissach Trapido who came to
America on September 15, 1907, with Hoda Joffe >from Kupishok, Lithuania.
They came to their uncle H. Epstein at 7 Allen Street, New York, NY.

There is an enormous Trapido family tree in existence, but there is no
Peissach Trapido in it that matches the above information. There are a
number of Peissach Trapidos, but all are the wrong age and none came to
America in 1907 as we have their immigration records.

Peissach Trapido is not found in the Kupishok records either. There is no
information given as to what his father's name was which would have helped
determine who he was.

Also, his first name may have become something else in America such as
Percy, Pincus, etc. Or, alternatively, he may have changed his last name
to something else like one of the other Peissach Trapidos who became
Ginzburg.

Please contact me privately with any information.
