Re: Court of Common Pleas for City & County of New York #general

Recently, Jacqueline Schwab <Jaxschwab@aol.com> asked....

I have a relative's Certificate of Naturalization dated October 13th, 1892 in
the Court of Common Pleas for the City and County of New York. While no
address is indicated on the certificate, this relative lived in NYC,...
Does anyone know which NYC court might have the originals
of Naturalization records?
I would suggest contacting the National Archives-Northeast Region which
has many of the original naturalization records for many courts in the NYC
area.

Gregorian Calendar #general

Gary Luke <feraltek@...>
 

In order to interpret the dates on some Polish records, I need to know
exactly when Galicia/Poland took on the Gregorian Calendar.
Austro-Hungarian Empire - 7 Jan 1584 became 17 Jan 1584.
Hungary 1587.
Poland - 5 Oct 1582 became 15 Oct 1582 (some authorities say 1586).
Russia - 1917, but because of civil war wasn't recognised throughout the
country until 1921.
Russian churches in May 1923.
Germany was divided into independent Protestant & Catholic states. Most
Catholic states in 1582, most Protestant 19 Feb 1700 became 1 Mar 1700.
Exceptions include Silesia (1584) and Prussia 1612), and quite a few other
states.
Sweden - between 1700 and 1740 by omitting leap years.

from "Dates and Calendars for the Genealogist" by C. Webb, ISBN 0-946789-07-X
Again, my question ...does anyone know when Poland took on the
Gregorian calendar system?
Which part of Poland and when? Did some parts of Poland change a few times
under changing authorities? Good luck. <g>

Court of Common Pleas #general

Jaxschwab@...
 

Once again, I am overwhelmed by the generosity of Genners in offering their
assistance to queries such as mine.

I recently asked JewishGenners for the present repository location of
Naturalization papers >from the now defunct Court of Common Pleas. I've
received a number of responses, with varying advice, but for which I am very
grateful, nonetheless.

I followed up on the suggestion of two in particular, both pointing to the 7th
floor of 31 Chambers Street in NYC. That address is indeed correct. I thank,
in particular, Mark Nearenberg and Barbara Kaufman for their knowledgeable
advice.

I've learned >from Mark, as an item of general interest to JewishGen, that the
Court of Common Pleas became the Supreme Court in 1895 (not 1847 as stated by
NYGenWeb), and that this is the repository of the records in question.

Sincerely,

Jacqueline Schwab

In Memorium - Henry Cantor #lithuania

MS ANN RABINOWITZ <PQUA32A@...>
 

The Kupishok SIG wishes to extend condolences to Linda Cantor, her
brother and family on the passing of their father, Henry Cantor.
Over the years, Mr. Cantor has played a vital role in the discussion

of family and shtetl, the gathering of information, and finally in
the development of our Kupishok cemetery database.

His staunch encouragement and support, companionship and love will be

missed by his friends and family alike. In this light, we would like

to name our cemetery database, the Henry Cantor Cemetery Database, in

his memory.

It is hoped that this memorial will encourage others to participate
with their parents or with their children to make our Kupishok
ShtetLink Site and other activities on JewishGen and the Litvak SIG a

real family effort as Henry always did.

May his name be a blessing to all who remember him.

My advice to use the right button and the "View Image" option

You can use this option to save the image file (the map is a

Harry Gutkin's book "Journey into our Heritage" The Story of the
Jewish people of the Canadian West (1980) has a picture on page 126 of Mr.
and Mrs. Koppel Clayman with infant daughter Rachel and her two brothers.
The text states that Rachel was born in Leeds (UK) and that she married
Chief Rabbi I.I. Kahanovitch in 1896. The rabbi who was born in 1872 ,and
ordained in 1892 (probably in Russian Poland since he studied in Grodno and
Slabodka), migrated to Scranton PA in 1906 after the Kishinov pogrom. He
was appointed to the Beth Jacob Congregation in Winnipeg in 1907. The
Rabbi had 5 daughters and 3 sons and died in 1945

Disclaimer: The above is a brief abstract of about 4 1/2 pages in the above
book. I have no further knowledge about the Claymans or the Rabbi. I do
think that the book (which may be out of print) is a must have for those
whose genealogy take them into the Canadian West

Interesting question: How was it that a girl born in Leeds came to marry a
newly ordained Rabbi residing in Central Europe
