Isaac LAZAROFF-, USA/ England/Jerusalem-Begin. 20th cent., #israel #usa #unitedkingdom

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

In order to confirm family lore I am researching an individual by the
name of Isaac LAZAROFF ( spelling may be variant) who was supposedly
married to my great great great grandmother, a second marriage for
both,

This story was told to my second cousin who heard it from his
grandmother. According to my cousin , his grandmother said that
LAZAROFF was a wealthy, orthodox Londoner, who had some 10 children
from his first wife (in England) and came to Jerusalem to find a
shidduch (a new wife). Supposedly they lived in the Mea Shearim
neighborhood in Jerusalem. Then it was a very fancy area.

My guess is that this gentleman may have been an American rather than
British (or a Britisher who had lived in the States) as there are
several discrepancies (and no official records,) for the family
history of that period. What is pretty sure, but again no records,
that this maternal ancestress had lived for years in New Haven, Ct.
before coming (or returning) to Jerusalem.

Is the above Isaac (Yitzchak) LAZAROFF, familiar to anyone ?

TIA

Thanks for this.  I have been unable to get the death certificate for my father who died in Dec 1949.  Most of the Vital Records retrieval data files seem to be labeled as before 1940 or after 1949.  I was beginning to think that 1949 had just been lost.  If this suit succeeds perhaps I will now be able to get it.

given name "Slawa"? #names #poland

Lee Jaffe
 

I was wondering if anyone can shed any light on the given name "Slawa."  In particular I'm wondering if it is a nickname for another name, say a Polish equivalent for a Jewish name. 

I'm researching my 3x great-grandmother Slawa Brodowicz Ludwinowska (b. 1800?, Wizajny, Suwalki, Poland), exploring any and all avenues to identify her parents.  We find many records for her under this name in JRI-Poland databases, most associated with births and marriages of her 9 children.  Three of these records identify a possible father, and these are contradictory.  I thought we might be able to expand our search options if we could identify other possible names she may have used and allow us to find a birth or marriage record with further information about her parents.

Red herrings: We know there is a town Slawa about 200 miles away, but we have no indication that's where the family originated (nor does it seem likely she'd be named for the town).  We also understand that the w would be pronounced as a v and that Slava is a common nickname in Eastern Europe and Russia, almost exclusively shortening masculine names (e.g. Stanislav).  One exception is a musician whose real given name is Anastasia.  There is also an "deviant" (her term)  artist called Slawa, but I cannot determine her actual name. 

Instead, we're hoping the wisdom of the list can help us identify a Polish-derivation of a Hebrew or Yiddish name (e.g. Yitzhak > Ick).  Perhaps members have family members called "Slawa" where it was a nickname for another name you can share with us.  

Thank you for your assistance,

Looking for any information about my grandfather, David Greenberg, who was cantor at Temple Hand-In-Hand on East 145th Street in the Bronx. He arrived in New York in 1896 and died in 1909, leaving a wife and 2 children.

Re: Equivalent Name for Rose #names

Susan Lubow
 

I'm not sure that "translation" is the right word.   A European Rose/Rosa/Rosalia might become an American Rose/Rosa.  But then Rose/Rosa might decide that Ruth is more "American".  In the same way, a European Rivka or Ruchl might become an American Rebecca/Rachel/Regina and then might prefer a more American-sounding name such as Ruth - always keeping the first initial. What is more important is if there is a specific person for whom a child is being named.  Then, using the first initial with a name that is more in keeping with the country where it is being used became a popular way to honor someone.

There is a known Rabbi in Brooklyn, NY called Rabbi Reuven Schepansky. Try your luck and contact him (Google his name).. I believe his father was from Poland.

Google "Rozov, Belarus". That's what you're looking for.

The language is set by country. France = French, Israel =Hebrew.

This happens with many applications. Help in Google comes up in Hebrew,
but the the help I wanted was "how to set the page to English."

It would be nice if instead of "ivrit" in Hebrew
they showed a flag.

Hi,

You are looking for soldiers of the 39th battalion. Volunteers from
US and Canada.

I do not have full access via Ancestry, but from time to time
they open UK or full access for free. I do not remember where I
found a card for my grandfather, but when ancestry last opened
(or familysearch) free access, I found more documents.

There is a museum at Avihayl, (north of Netanya) but if no one supplied information
of the person-they have nothing. They had nothing for me
when I was there, not even my grandfather's name.

Re: Research individuals in France #france

Fran Stark-Hundiak
 

On Filae I was able to find the following,
 

Naturalization: Originally this person was of foreign nationality, she became French by benefiting from a decree of NATURALIZATION. The first text concerning the naturalizations of foreigners in France is a judgment of the Parliament of Paris dated 1515: "The child born in France of foreign parents is French if he chooses to settle permanently in France", The 25th of June 1948, at France (Republic Of France)

Birth: The 14th of October 1909, at Chmielnik (Chmielnik, Powiat Koniński, Województwo Wielkopolskie, Republic Of Poland)

 

Since he Naturalized June 25 1948 you should be able to follow the instructions of Bernard Flam on using Gallica to find more information.

 

Hope this helps.

Apparently, the court misplaced several files before they could be microfilmed.  You can see from this microfilm image -- there is a placeholder for your great-grandfather's file:  https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QS7-894J-B7TY?i=353&cc=2064580&cat=2137048 .  If you change to thumbnail view, you will then see many placeholders for missing folders.

Re: are there benefits of the My Heritage site over Ancestry #general

Although there are times when I've found incorrect trees, overall I have found My Heritage to be very helpful. 99% of the time the record matches I find are correct. Rarely do I get records from Family Tree (the Mormon site). Most of the records I've found are ones that I would not be able to get for free. Using My Heritage, I've contacted several cousins who did extensive research before me and were able to pass that information along to me. I would have a lot more brick walls than I currently have if it wasn't for them. I've also found a lot of photos of family members and historical information about some well-known ones. My mom and I have been doing this together - she longer than I have - and I find a lot more information that she does. She's always asking me, "Where did you find this?" and most of the time I've found it from records on My Heritage. She uses Ancestry.

One more question: is there an index of NYC Death Certificates for the years 1949-1968 (or any sub-period within that time frame)?

Currently only the limited things you find online at Ancestry for example.  Can try looking for obits in The New York Times or other newspapers as a substitute.

The index existed in paper form at the NY Public Library but the Health Department actually went to the library and physically demanded the return of the index saying it was a privacy issue.  The library had been resisting requests for a while hence they went there and took possession of the books!

Re: Weinstock from Hungary #general #hungary #slovakia

JPmiaou@...
 

The reason I'm automatically wary of "spouse's name is the same, must be the same couple" is that I have ancestors who shared their exact names with another couple in the same small village (population 122). Also, Jewish surnames draw from a pretty limited pool all over Hungary, and the choices of given names came from a rather homogenous short list, too, so name repeats are bound to happen.

If the occupation matches (especially if it's something fairly specialized, rather than a generic "merchant"), it may be enough to tip the scale in favor. (That Dratted Handwriting is getting the best of me on the marriage record, so I don't know what it says for the occupation of Jonas.)

(Bodrog-)Szentes versus Nagygéres as birthplace is a minor difference in terms of geography (3 miles), but one wonders why the difference in reported names. Did they actually live on an outlying farm somewhere, and someone got confused about which municipality it belonged to?
