Where should I look for divorce paperwork? #galicia

Jessica Skippon <jskippon@...>
 

My great-grandparents (Viktor Schanzer and Fani Borger Birn (a widow)
were said to have divorced before my grandmother was born in 1885 in
Andrychau. He remarried two years later in Wadowice. The Wadowice
marriage register 1877-1928 is the only Jewish register >from a wide area
of southern Poland that I have found.

from the middle of the 19th century, the Jewish people were given 'equal
rights'. I assume that meant there children were no longer considered
illegitimate because their parents were not married in a church.

How would a divorce have been registered? How common was a religious
divorce - would there have been civil divorces?

from my search for Galician army registrations in Vienna, I have learned
that all those records pertaining to the area that became Polish were
sent to Poland at the end of WWI, in this case Krakow. It would be useful
to know the practice around divorce.

Bernard,

A quick visit to the HebrewBooks.org website and the ability to write
the name of the Zichron Yechiel book in Hebrew, you will find this
book, http://hebrewbooks.org/42499.

If you can read Hebrew, at the beginning is a little blurb that tells
you that he was the rabbi in a town (that was hard to locate in Latin
letters, and now known as) Tyrawa-Woloska (see
http://www.geshergalicia.org/towns/tyrawa-woloska/) in Poland. He
also served as a rabbi in what is now Nowy Sacz, and in his old age he
was well received in Sanok, where he died and was buried. I hope this
helps you in your quest for more information.

I am also copying the Geser Galicia SIG on this, since this might
yield more information for you.

Regards,

Searching the New York Passenger Lists in One Step CORRECTION #germany

Ellen Barnett Cleary
 

I had an incorrect link in my message posted yesterday, so wanted to post
this correction.

I knew the name of the ship my ancestor immigrated on and the time
period he arrived in the US. I wanted to figure out how to find that
passenger list.

I learned that you can go to stevenmorse.org and search for the name of
a ship.

Someone did this leg of the work for me and told me the vessel "St Laurent"
sailed into New York, but had I not known this, I could have just
searched the listed ports that included the year 1867. It turns out
only New York lists this ship.

I learned that ships arriving in 1867 landed in Castle Garden.
So I searched:

All NY Ship Lists (1820-1957) - familysearch: Searching for Ships in all
New York Microfilms in One Step:

There I searched the name of the ship, St. Laurent, in 1867

It gave me 6 dates for the St Laurent in 1867. One is in June, another
in August.

I went to familysearch.org and clicked on search records.
At the bottom of that page there is a box where you can find
a collection. I entered "passenger list" in the box and it gave me
a list to choose from. I chose:

New York Passenger Lists, 1820-1891

At the bottom of that page is the option:
"Browse through 428,944 images"

http://tinyurl.com/nhy6kom

<https://familysearch.org/search/image/index#uri=https://familysearch.org/recapi/sord/collection/1849782/waypoints>;

That brings you to a page that lists the NARA roll numbers and what
dates they cover.

The info I got >from stevenmorse.com gave me the NARA roll numbers and
pages that contain the St Laurent passenger lists, so all I had to do
from there is click on each applicable roll number and browse to that
page. The page numbers in the film itself vary a little bit >from the
page numbers you get in your search, but they get you in the right
neighborhood and it is easy to find the list >from there.
