Need advise on how to preserve archives #general

Ed <red@...>
 

Hello all,

May I ask your advise on what kind of equipment should be used to copy and
storage old Jewish archives ( digital cameras, scanner, microfilm). We are
planning to launch a project on preservation of Ukrainian Jewish archives
very soon. The purpose is to create a database, to make them avaible
online, to preserve our heritage, etc.

Old Jewish archives are in a terrible condition in Ukraine. Every day we
loosing tens of records.

We need advise as we never did this before. Our e-mail :
red@iptelecom.net.ua

Hope to hear >from you soon,

Wolverhampton #general

Stephen G. Esrati <stevsta@...>
 

Ancestors (Benjamin and Mary COHEN) arrived in
England in 1873-74 and settled at 4, Ward Street,
Wolverhampton.
They later moved to Elizabeth Street, Cheatham Hill,
Manchester.
Question 1: Why would immigrants have gone to
Wolverhampton? What was there? Was there a Jewish
community?
Question 2: Was Ward Street in a Jewish area?

Re: Keilah #general

Although 'Keilah' might be found as an Ashkenazic name, 'Keilah' (or
Kehilah) is also a term commonly used by many Sephardim to refer to the
synagogue where they attend. In short, the Sephardi counterpart of the
Ashkenazi 'shul.'

the Yiddish Name Keilah.

One of my daughter's "Hebrew names" is Keilah. Named after one of my

Did women automatically receive citizenship at same time as #general

Peter_Hills <Peter_Hills@...>
 

The twin sister of my gf arrived in NY in 1904. The 1920 census records
show her husband as having applied for naturalisation (pa) but she is shown
as an alien. JewGen FAQ states that until 1922 women were automatically
given citizenship at same time as husband. Her family believe that she
subsequently applied for naturalisation in her own right in the 1950s and
we are about to search for her naturalisation records. Is the rule about
women being given automatic citizenship absolute or were there ever any
exceptions to that rule? Advice gratefully received, thank you.

Re: Birth certificates from England #general

Sherry Landa and/or Russell Johnson <russell.johnson1@...>
 

To apply through the FRC you need to apply in _Person_. Delay is four
days! To apply by post then you are actually going to Smedley Hydro, where
the delay is 10-12 weeks apparently! You can also go to the local
registrar as I have explained to the original poster!

Re: Birth certificates from England #general

Roberta Sheps <roberta_l_sheps@...>
 

Dear Robert,

I have seen the practical reply to your question, sent by Ralph Berrick,
but here is a bit of Quaint Englisshe practice: there are two forms of
birth certificate, a short and a long. They are both only copies of the
entry in the Register, which for a long time, was a book. The long one is
more expensive for the parent when registering the child's birth, and, as
I recall >from my stay in the maternity ward, quite a few women regarded
the extra cost as not being worthwhile. I believe that the short form
only lists the name of the child and date and place of birth. Whether the
situation prevailed in 1895 or not, I don't know, but someone who was an
immigrant, and presumably therefore poor, might not have wanted to spend
the money.

Is this possible? I would have thought that, at a minimum, any document
calling itself a birth certificate would have named at least one parent
or guardian (except for certain limited circumstances); these two people
are > purportedly siblings and were not adopted (so far as I know).

Could I merely have copies of some kind of certification of birth? I.E.,
documents that merely confirm someone's birth (say for purposes of a
naturalization) rather than the certificate itself which was filed out
at/around the actual time of birth. Am I likely to get any more info if
I send to England for these people's birth certificates?
Any help or thoughts greatly appreciated!

Re Birth certificates from England #general

David Fielker <david@...>
 

The birth certificates that Robert Strumwasser has are what are known as
'short certificates', which as he guesses are obtained later for legal
purposes. They are cheaper than the full ones, and give only the minimum
information: name, sex, date of birth, district.

A full birth certificate will give you this information, plus place of
birth, names of both parents including mother's maiden name, father's
occupation, name and address of informant, date of registration.
