Offering Lookups (Again) at NYC Municipal Archives/NY Public Library #general

A. E. Jordan
 

I have been away >from the look up for a long time while I relocated
and now that I am barely settled in am going to try and do lookups again.

I will be available in Manhattan next Tuesday to get copies of
certificates at the NYC Municipal Archives as well as likely to be
at the NY Public Library.

If anyone needs something specific please contact me and we can
discuss if I can help you.

Anyone who has availed my services in the past knows I have a sort
of set routine. On these trips I am basically working as your eyes
and legs for people who can not get to the Archives or Library
themselves.

Generally what I do is transcribe certificates where you have
already found the numbers >from the online indexes or sometimes check
for missing records with the tools at the Archives. Yes I can
retrieve the City Clerk marriage licenses -- ie. the ones where the
indexes went on line earlier this year. As a reminder I can only
access births through 1909, marriages through 1937, City Clerk
licenses through 1929 (after that requires going to the marriage
bureau); and deaths through 1948. Also I can do naturalizations at
the NY Supreme Court which is in the same building and probates for
Manhattan. For someone who made a request I might also try NARA
this time for naturalizations.

At the Library I can access the newspapers, city directories, NY
Census and various databases plus sometimes retrieve books and make copies.

I ask everyone to cover the costs including the printing of
certificates (if you want them) which is $11 each plus a little for me
to help offset my travel costs (budgets are tight right now as I just
incurred a big move expense so I can give time but you need to cover
costs for me.) Same for copy costs at the NY Public Library.

What I do is take the details you have and in the case of the Archives
I actually look at each certificate on the microfilm before placing the
copy order to make sure it is what you said it was. Sometimes I have
to clean up errors in transcription of numbers, research >from your info
to find the correct certificate number. etc. I pay for the certificates
and then trust you to reimburse me. I can either scan and email or mail
certificates. I type notes and email.

Please understand that generic searches when you only have vague
details (like Moshie married Sally but that's all I know) or are
trying to breakdown a brickwall that you have been working at for
years requires an investment of time beyond a quick retrieval and I
cannot include in this offer.

I am always happy to discuss any and all research questions
involving NYC area look ups.

MODERATOR: Please contact Allan privately.

U.K. Grave of Solomon (Shulem) PACTOR? #general

tina levine
 

Dear Genners,

I am trying to locate the grave of my great grandfather's brother.
He resided in London and died in 1944, age 77. His death index
states his registration district is Essex South Western and his
Inferred County is Essex.

I will be in England shortly and would like to visit his grave.
How can I find out where he is buried? His grandson has no idea.
His wife Sarah (Sureh) died in 1932, age 64. Her registration
district is Hackney, Inferred County London. I would think
they're buried in the same cemetery.

Thank you for any assistance you can provide.

Re: Drohicyn? #belarus

Ken Falkson <mokmanrs@...>
 

I am a descendant of the Milner family of Drohicyn, who are also related
to the Warshawsky and Eisenstein families of Drohicyn. I know this to
be the place in Belarus and not Poland because of the Yizkor book, which
was created by relatives of mine. Also, all of my research has pointed
me to locations in Belarus. I have no other information that points to
any place as far west as Poland that would suggest the other location.
I took a quick scan through the names in the Yizkor book but did not
find Simanowski. I would suggest having a look yourself though as I
only skimmed very quickly.

Help needed before IAGJS #belarus

Laura L <pinkluna@...>
 

Hello! I'm going to my first conference, and hoping to make the best use of my
time. I've been researching for several years, but still have many loose threads
and brick walls. I'm researching my grandmother's family in Belarus, specially
the MEIEROVITZ family of Smorgon, and the CEGIELNICKA/Zigelnitka/Tzgelnitka family
of Lida and Woronowa. The Meierovitz family may have owned a factory, My great
grandmother, Elka, had at least 4 sisters, Bashe (married named Rabinowitz),
Sara (married name Kac), Gimple and Devora. There was a brother named Nacham.
Parts of the family were in Minsk, Vilna, and Kovno. The parents were Eliezer
and Sheina.

I believe that Elka Meierovitz married my great grandfather Chaim (Hyman)
ZIGELNITKA (CEGIELNICKA) in Vilna in 1904 according to her naturalization
certificate. Their Americanized names were Ella/Elka and Hyman SIGEL/SIEGEL.

I am hoping that someone here might be related to the family, or have some
ideas about specific resources to utilize while at the IAGJS. I have been
unable to track down their marraige record on JewishGen, or the birth records
of their daughters Lillian (Leah) 1910, Rivka (dob around 1912) and
Macha (Mildred) around 1913, all born in Smorgon to the best of my knowledge.
Please contact me if you can help, I would really appreciate it. Thank you so much.

This is a great list.
Thank you for your help.

Descendant of R' Chaim of Volozhin #rabbinic

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

According to a dictated note written by my great uncle, his
grandmother, Sarah Hinde KANTOR was a descendant of R' Chaim of
Volozhin and her "unterfierer" (that took her to her wedding) was R'
Itzaleh, R' Chaim's son. Sarah Hinde does not appear in any published
trees and supposedly was orphaned at a young age while R' Itzaleh (her
grandfather?) was still alive.

Sounds a bit like R'Itzaleh's daughter and son-in-law-LANDAU who both
passed away during his life time.

Does anyone have any knowledge of the above Sarah Hinde (maiden name
unknown to me).

TIA

Sounds a bit like R'Itzaleh's daughter and son-in-law-LANDAU who both
passed away during his life time.

Does anyone have any knowledge of the above Sarah Hinde (maiden name
unknown to me).
