Don,

At the following URL <http://www.ci.nyc.ny.us/html/doris/html/marriage.html>
you can print out a form to request a NYC marriage record. Note this is
for marriage records 1937 and prior. Anything later is still held
confidential by NYC, and very different (more stringent) rules apply for
obtaining one. The prices, where to mail, etc. are printed on the form.

good luck in your search,

Cecilia and Rebeka) and Pollak (Helena/Leni, Cecilia and their father
Abraham) families >from Budapest/Abony and Budapeat/Apaj/Vagujhely
respectively.

Thanks,

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The groom is Majer Bursztyn, son of Mosek (son of Mortko) and Chaja Sura
(daughter of Wolf). Majer was 19 when the marriage was reported in
Ciechanow during 1836. No information on the bride appears in the index but
will in the actual record.

Regards,

Jonathan Goldmacher

With regard to "Mosek Mortkowicz," is Majer the son of Mosek and Mosek the
son of Mortko, or is Mosek and Mortko the same?

Regards,

Gary Goldstein

Ah! I checked the main Ciechanow page and the "Type
M" does stand for "marriage records".

So I am also confused by the headings at the top of
the table.
SURNAME: BURSZTYN
GIVEN NAMES: Majer
AKT: 2
FATHER: Mosek Mortkowicz
MOTHER: Chaja Sura Wolfow
AGE: 19
TOWN: Ciechanow
YEAR: 1836
TYPE: M
FILM: 702466

This does not make it clear who the bride and groom
are. Mosek and Chaja are listed as parents, but
chaja is only 19!

I was very suprised to see the surname Wulfow
listed in some of the
Ciechanow lists. The only Wulfows I know are my
fathers brothers and their
wives and children. My grandfather left Russia to
avoid serving in the
Czar's army. This was prior to 1910. I know this
date because my
grandfather's brother and his twin sons came for a
visit and then went back.
This is the last we heard >from them. This
greatuncle supposedly went back
because his wife did not wish to leave her
belongings behind which she would
have had to done to emigrate.

Does anyone know why I might have found my surname
in the lists located at
www.firstport.com/ciechanow/m1836-40.htm and what
this means. I am
clueless.
Thanks for any help
Marti Wulfow Garner

Re: Some thoughts #general

Maria Krane
 

To David and the rest of the Genners out there:
I think your question is a valid one. I learned to love the
connections I had with my past and with my roots as a very young child at
my grandfather's knee. I don't know what would happen if one day I woke up
and all the empty boxes on my family tree were filled in. Perhaps I'd feel
a great deal of disappointment at having lost my quest. I can tell you
this much. I feel, breathe, and see through our ancestor's eyes. I
imagine the clothing they wore, the places they walked, the words they
spoke. Every new person is another part of me, of who I am, of where I
came from, of what I feel, see and love. I am nothing without them. They
brought me to this juncture in life. This time and space I occupy is only
thanks to G-d and those who came before me. I don't know how else to
explain it. It's part of who I am and I can't divorce myself >from it.
That's why it is so important to help those who survived the Holocaust
reconstruct what was stolen >from them.
We are nothing without a past, without roots, and of course
wings.......................

Re: Indexing of Belarus Records #belarus

Plutsk@...
 

Miriam Margolyes has expressed very well an important direction the
SIG and others should be considering. By facilitating the indexing
of records (perhaps via contract with the experienced Genealogical
Society of Utah) while leaving to the records' owners the retrieval,
copying, and sales of copied records, we create a win-win situation
which could be a model for many other locations and situations.

Masche Thanks you #general

A. E. Jordan
 

Many thanks for everyone who took time to write back about my note on the
name Masche. Sorry if I did not get back to you personally -- I got a lot
of emails.

The consensus was that Masche = Masha and was a female name, although many
peoplesaid she was named for a man.

I got the passenger list in question today and yes it was a woman and I am
fairly sure she is a family member. According to legend she was smuggled
out of Courland in 1891 in the back of a hay wagon! No one seems to know
why. She seemsto have sailed alone arriving in New York in October 1891.
Her father and brother was already here but her mother was still in
Courland.

By the way I found her on the online Hamburg passenger index. The index
makes it real simple. I wrote down the ship name and her passenger number,
got the date of arrival in New York >from the online version of Morton Allen
and then it was simple. The passenger number online in the Hamburg index
directly corresponded to the original microfilm of the NY arrival passenger
list -- I found Masche in a matter of minutes!

Thanks to all and good luck with your research.

I don't specifically recall the "Nanoo-Nanoo" hand sign. But I think you
may actually be referring to Spock's hand sign in Star Trek. If so (and
if your ggf was a kohen) what you see on the headstone is a pair of
upraised hands with the fingers separated two-and-two, which marks the
grave of a Kohen. This is the way Kohanim traditionally configure their
hands when blessing the congregation in a liturgical ritual performed on
festivals in orthodox diaspora synagogues -- and every shabbat in Israeli
synagogues -- based on the commandment in Numbers 6:22-27.

Leonard Nimoy (Mr. Spock) was in fact a kohen and he has gone on record as
explaining that he learned to do that with his hands after he became Bar
Mitzvah and thus eligible to go up and bless the people -- but it's news to
me that Robin Williams was Jewish at all!
