Canada Nat'l Archives survey #general

Hilary Henkin <hilary@...>
 

The National Archives of Canada is performing a survey until January
15th. This survey will help determine what material the NAC will put on
the web in the future as part of their digitalized collections. Some of
their proposed projects will be of more interest to genealogists than
others. If you would like to complete this survey, it can be found at:
http://www.archives.ca/exec/naweb.dll?fs&0104&e&top&0

One of their choices is to digitize their passenger and border lists,
which would make them available on the internet.

It's not often we're asked what we'd like to have access to.

Re: Changing names - another story #general

Allan Jordan asked about how people went about changing their names.

My grandparents, father and uncle arrived at Ellis Island in 1922. I
have their orignal papers. On the Declaration of Alien about to depart for
the US". which was typed in the American Consulate in Bucharest, Roumania,
my grandfather's name is typed as: "Moishe VINNITZKY (WINETZKY)" His
signature appears in Russian.
On the inspection card >from Ellis Island has handwritten "Moishe
WINETSKY", but not in my grandfather's handwriting, which I know.
On the "Declaration of Intention" in 1923, the name is written and
signed as Moses VENETZKY, the spelling my grandfather used.
In 1946, my father began working for William Goldman Theatres. Mr.
Goldman suggesteed that Venetzky was "too long for the marquee" (not that
my father's name would have ever appeared on a marquee!). So my father and
his brother had it legally changed to VANETT, while their sister remained
a VENETZKY until she married in the 1950's.

Hello.

I was wondering if anyone can tell me where the town of Szobranc is today and where
it was in 1868 (either in Hungary or in Slovakia). Does the town have different names
in Hungarian and Slovak?
Another thing - where is the town of Tida located (in which country) - today and in
1940?
Please answer to shis@isdn.net.il .
Thanks in advanced.

The Bronx Nursing Home you might be looking for could be the Workman's
Circle Home for the Aged. It was built around 1938 - 1940. You can
reach them through the:

Susan King's message #general

Joyce Field <jfield@...>
 

Many people, touched as we were, have written to ask about the
identity of the person who wrote the Christmas Eve email to the
Yizkor Book Project that Susan King quoted in her New Year's Eve
message. I wrote him to ask if he would mind if we revealed his name
and email address. He has indicated that he would be happy to engage
in a discussion on Yedbabne or any other topic with any one who
writes. This remarkable young man's name is Marek Jozwiak, and
his email address is < marek71@poczta.onet.pl >.

Many of you have also written to ask for information on Yedwabne.
You can find the yizkor book translation on JewishGen at
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/jedwabne/Yedwabne.html as well as
the translation of the Polish newspaper article by Andrzej Kaczynsk,
"Burning Alive", published May 5, 2000 by "Rzeczpospolita", which
caused a sensation in Poland. The introduction by Morlan Ty Rogers
puts the article in historical perspective.

Re: Changing names - how was it done? #general

Reeva Kimble <rKimble@...>
 

Allan Jordan asked about how people went about changing their names.

My grandfather came to the US in 1895. His wife and first three
children came in 1900. By 1916 the family name had been changed.
Because my uncle was over 21 at the time my grandfather changed the
family name, he had to file a separate petition to change his name.

Below is the legal notice of the granting of the petition.

At a special term of the city Court of the City of New York, held
at Chambers thereof, in the Court-House No. 32 Chambers Street in
the Borough of Manhattan, City of New York, on the 23rd day of June
1916 Present: Hon. William L. Ransom, Justice.
In the matter of the petition of Louis Seikowitz for leave to
change his name to Louis Robert Saxon.
On reading and filing the petition of Louis Seikowitz, verified
the 20th day of June 1916. It is, upon motion of Morris J. Junger,
attorney for the petitioner,
Ordered that the said Louis Seikowitz be and he is, hereby
authorized to assume the name of Louis Robert Saxon on and after the
10th day of August 1916 and that this order and petition be filed
within ten days in the office of the clerk of this court, and that a
copy of this order be published at once within ten days after the
entry hereof in the New York Law Journal.
Enter W.L.R.,J.C.C.
