Finding Prague marriage record #austria-czech

LarryBassist@...
 

A relative said their ancestors were married in Prague in the "Embassy" shortly after the formation of the Czech Republic after WWI. Their child was born in Feb 1922 so that would make the marriage between October 1918 and about June 1921. She stated that the marriage certificate was numbered 1. That caused some trouble later in Romania when they went there because the officials did not believe there was a certificate numbered 1. Bride: Gertrud (also called Trude) Herrnheiser from Prague. Groom: Adolf Barta from Arad, Romania.

How can I find the marriage record? And, what could the "Embassy" have been?

Thanks for any help anyone can provide.

My father was the oldest of 7. He arrived in the US from Lithuania in 1912. When the rest of the family wanted to emigrate, the US said NO!! They went to Argentina and my father never saw them again.

Morris snd Fanny had a two sons, Joe(l) - who was killed in action in WW1 -and Jacob as well as daughters, Gerty (m. KAPLAN) and Annie.  

 

Fanny KAVARSKY

If you know of any living descendants of Morris and Fanny - or are one yourself - please contact me at jgandz@...

Ezekiel in Poland #poland #records

relly800@...
 

My aunt Hinda(?) FELD born in Dobrzyn nad Wisla in 1899(?) married a Zekiel.  In post war documents from the UK her birth year is given as 1910 and name as Nina.  I have no information about her husband besides the last name, from her UK documents.  He may have been her second husband and every indication is that he died in the war.  

Anyone searching Zekiel that can shed light on the connection? 

Thanks

Re: Looking for Louis Rutledge and Anna nee Goldstein West Virginia and Ohio and New York #general #usa

Renee Steinig
 

Searching the Mount Zion website (mountzioncemetery.com) for "R" name in the Zabludower section brings up Louis Rotkowitz and Anna Rutledge:

Louis Rotkowitz - buried 9 Apr 1933
(Death record: Louis Rutkovege, age 65. Died 8 April 1933 Brooklyn. Wife Anna.)

Anna Rutledge - buried 17 Oct 1954
(Death record: Anna Rutledge, age 83. Died 16 Oct 1954 ?Richmond ?Brooklyn -- index is unclear.)

Their double grave, pictured on FindaGrave, says Louis and Anna Rutledge.

And this must be Arthur:

1910 census - Henry St., Manhattan - Abe Rotkovege, age 12, born NJ (jives with Paterson NJ on marriage record)

1915 census - Howard Ave, Brooklyn - Abraham Rutkovege, age 17, born US
    (Index has the wrong parents, because census pages are out of order.)

He's not with his parents (Ruthovege) in 1920.
  
In 1925, Louis and Anna "Roatleich," were living at 1424 Eastern Pkwy., close to the address on Arthur's death record. By 1930, they're Rutledge.  (All spellings mentioned are as indexed on Ancestry.)

Arthur's siblings: Rose, Ida, Sarah/Shirley, Sam, Lillie/Lillian, Alex.

This is sad news.  Al and I had corresponded about our shared heritage in Muhlhausen, Bavaria and worked together on researching the Reizenstein family history.  In addition to being a talented researcher, Al was a kind and generous soul.  May his memory be a blessing.

Sinko, Shinke, Sinka from Lithuania #lithuania

Diane Jacobs
 

I prefer my husband's quote when describing me as a genealogist. She is more interested in the dead than the living.
 
Just in case this resonates with others from
 Lithuania, after 20 years of searching for my maternal grandfather's family, I have learned that Singman in NYC and Wash. DC were not Schimkov as stated in there 1888
passenger manifest from Vilna, but Sinko
or Shinke from Gelvonai, Sirvintos and Jonava. 
 
Anyone with similar names, please contact me.  Thanks.

18th c record from Glogow/Glogau #germany #poland #records

Frank Bond
 

While searching in the Polish archives for 18th c  information from Glogow/Glogau (JRI-Poland does not list any), I found a notebook entitled "Repertorium der Grund-Acten von der vormaligen Glogauer Juden-Stadt".  The date is given as 1821-1858, but it is clearly older than that. I can't figure out what this notebook is, but it includes lots of names.  It also has maps of the Jewish quarter and who lived where, but I'm not sure when. There is writing in several hands from different time periods.
 
 I'm hoping someone with expertise in this area might be able to figure out what this notebook is.  Its physical location is the Archiwum Państwowe w Zielonej Górze, and the URL is https://www.szukajwarchiwach.gov.pl/en/jednostka/-/jednostka/6642846

I could read enough to tell that it does not include the name I was looking for, but it could be very useful for others.

Re: Samuel Unger Family from Bielsko-Biala and Kamesznica,Zywiec, Poland #poland #galicia

carrieungertx2020@...
 

I believe Samuel Unger was my great great grandfather. He left Poland in 1912 under the Russian pograms. My father is Stephen Robert Unger. His father, one son of Samuel, was Irving. His brother is Arthur Unger still alive at 91 in Boca Raton. Then there was Herbert. Irving passed away in the late 1970s from prostate cancer. Herbert, I am not sure. His mom are still alive. Carol Unger Rubin lives in Georgia. Please let me know if this is the same Samuel. I think he had a brother Jacob and another one John. I heard a story about one of them starting a community in the forests of Austria-Hungary. 


Goldingen Jewish Families 1842 transcription on JewishGen; need Fond & List (Lieta) number #courland #latvia

ari@...
 

Some years ago, Martha Lev-Zion generously translated and donated to JewishGen an abstract of the family register of the heads of Jewish families in Goldingen in 1842. Often these manuscripts contain more information than is included in the abstract, and I've been looking for the source. I've checked the Raduraksti site, but it doesn't (yet?) include family lists, and there's no 1842 Addendum to the 1834/35Revision List for Goldingen posted on the site. I'd appreciate it if someone could point me to an online posting of the source. Thank you

Re: When only part of the family emigrates to the US #usa

Adelle Gloger
 

Thought I would throw another thought into the mix.
My paternal grandmother arrived in the USA in 1921 with 4 children, ages 20, 16, 12 and 9.
My grandfather, her husband, did not arrive until 1924. He was denied passage with the family because of trachoma -- an eye disease. My grandmother and the children came to live with her brother-in-law, my grandfather's brother.

Researching Tzalel Blachman of Apt/Opatow #poland
From: Carol Weinberg
Date: Fri, 27 Nov 2020 10:38:32 EST
 
Hi Genners
I am researching my paternal great grandfather Betazlel /Tzalel/Tzaleh Blachman for Apt/Opatow, Poland.
He was born to Gabriel Blajchman and Chia Chana Mer in Opatow in 1855 and died in Opatow about 1900.
 
He was a big "macher" in Opatow, an educated man that was known to be able to get things done. His nickname was "Der roiteh avocat" although I have no documentation that he was an actual lawyer. He helped numerous men avoid the draft into the Russian army, with bribes and exaggerated claims of physical challenges.
 
I am looking for any information about him, including information on his address in Opatow, his siblings, and any stories about people that he helped in Opatow.
 
He had 9 children:
 
Shaindlel Blachman Rosengarten, moved to Warsaw
Gittle Blachman Rozenblum, moved to New York
Rifka Bayla Blachman Wajnberg, died in Opatow
Devorah Blachman Cohen, moved to Toronto
Pinchas Blachman, moved to Toronto
Yita Blachman Wajnberg, moved to Toronto
Max Blacman,  moved to London Ontario, then Toronto
Fishle Blachman,  moved to London Ontario, then Toronto
Zlateh Blachman, moved to London Ontario, then Toronto, then New York
 
Thanks to all
