Hi, Harry,

According to Norm N. Nite's *Rock On: Volume 2* (a book that has been
known to contain errors), Arthur Garfunkle was born on October 13,1942 in
Queens, New York (It is not uncommon for celebrities' birth dates to
differ according to the source, since in an attempt to retain their
youthful appeal celebs sometimes shave off a year or more.

Nothing about Art's parents but the biographical sketch referred to
above says Artie met Paul while attending PS 164 in Queens during the
early 50s.

I am also interested in genetics---braca gene 2 that causes several different
cancers, ushers disease, and epidermoloysis bullosa. I know that the study of
genetics with genealogy is very impotant. Where can we go on the internet?
Thanks Susan Boyer

Art GARFUNKEL #general

HarnsDD@...
 

Does anyone know Art GARFUNKEL's genealogy? (He's the Garfunkel >from the
famous SIMON AND GARFUNKEL musical duo). I read in a biography of Simon and Garfunkel that he was born in 1941 in New York City and that his
ther's name was Jack. But that's all I know.

Any help would be appreciated!

legal name change via naturalization #general

Renee Steinig <rsteinig@...>
 

Shoshana Arnold <darnold@aquanet.co.il> wrote that her great-
grandfather's name appeared on his Certificate of Arrival as Peisach
Arschinow, but on his citizenship documents as Phillip Arshinoff.
She asked:

...would they have had to undergo a legal name change to do this?
Or did they just anglicize their names?... If they did do a legal
name change, where would I find these records?
According to John J. Newman's "American Naturalization Processes
and Procedures, 1790-1985," >from 27 Sept. 1906 on, "At court hearing
on naturalization, upon petition, may issue decree changing alien's
name. New name to appear on certificate of naturalization." In other
words, immigrants could (and presumably still can) effect a legal name
change as part of the naturalization process.

Newman's very useful 43-page booklet, published in 1985 by the
Indiana Historical Society, can be ordered at the IHS website...

Re: Besarabia #general

Lewis Baratz <fiocco@...>
 

Yes, of course.
Bessarabia (Besarabia) is more-or-less where today's Moldova is - it was
named for the BESARAB family, which were the local potentates during
the later middle ages. between the rivers Prut and Dnestr (Nistru, in Romanian). Today's Moldova does not extend as far south as Bessarabia.
during the 19th century, it was part of the Russian Empire. It became
independent around 1919 until it became part of the Romanian Kingdom, ca.
1922.
