Utah Birth Records #general

Gabor Zsolnay <gmz262@...>
 

Has anyone had any luck finding birth certificates >from Utah in the 1880s?
To make things harder, I do not know the town where the births may have
taken place. One would think that in the land of Mormons, there would be
great birth records, but so far I have had no luck. Any suggestions?

Sincerely,

Carol Adler Zsolnay at gmz262@nwu.edu

Re: Gorodishchers Burials #general

Arthur S. Abramson <abramson@...>
 

Lois Sernoff (jewishgen digest: October 05, 1998) has asked, "Does
anyone know of any NY cemetery(s) with ground dedicated
to members of a NY landsmanshaftn >from Gorodishche, Ukr.
[49o 17'/31o27'] ?"
I do not know of any such plot; however, a number of people from
Gorodishche, Kiev Gubernia, Ukraine were buried in the plot of the First
Kremenchug Associoation in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Maspeth, NY. My grandparents
and others >from my mother's family who arrived here >from Gorodishche in the
latter part of the 19th century are buried there. Apparently they did not
belong to any Gorodishche _landsmanshaft_, but rather to the one from
Kremenchug, a town not far >from Gorodishche.

A. E. Jordan
 

I just learned that my ggf was one of the founders of Moses Montifore of
Hoboken, New Jersey. I tried to find a listing on the itnernet for this
temple but it appears to have closed? Anyone ever heard of it - know it,
etc????

Thanks in advance for your help or suggestions on how to find information on
it.

What would you do next? #general

Arnold Davidson <arnoldbd@...>
 

My great-grandparents and all but one of their children immigrated from
Lithuania just before the turn of the century. The name they took here was
ABRAMS but no one knows what their name was originally. Anecdotal history
says that my ggf and two of his children arrived through the port of Boston
and made their way through New England to finally settle in Syracuse. Their
presence in Syracuse is confirmed. The citizenship papers for my ggf and
two of his children states that their port of entry was New York, not
Boston. I have searched through arrivals lists for New York and Boston,
looking for Abrams and similar names (using Soundex), whose ages and sexes
are applicable, without success. Obviously, I may have missed them because
I don't know the name they actually travelled under.

My ggf's one child who did not emigrate to the US was my gf. He bought
papers and took the name of PEKER (to avoid conscription) and became a
mashgiach at the Lomza Yeshiva in Poland and died there in 1911. When his
children (including my mother) came to the US after WWI, they were received
by the Syracuse ABRAMS family and took that name.

I have a copy of my ggf's ketuba, which says that he was married in Aizpute
(Hazenpot) Latvia. I sent the Latvian archives a request to look up the
marriage, giving them the date and names on the ketuba. (The original
family name was not indicated on the ketuba.) The reply >from the Latvian
archivist said that there was no marriage recorded on the date shown on the
ketuba for anyone having the same given names that were shown on the ketuba.

I have sent a request to the Lithuanian Archives for any information they
may have on the marriage of my gf, giving them the date of marriage as
recorded in a wedding announcement that appeared in a Lithuanian newspaper.
The announcement gives the name of the bride's parents, but shows the
groom's parents as his own, rather than as their own. I have not yet
received a reply to this request.

My questions are:

1. What more could I do to find out the original name of the Abrams family?

2. Under what circumstances might an arrival through the port of NY be
interpreted as an arrival through the port of Boston?

3. What else might I do to find the original name of this family?

Hence my question: What would you do next?

Re: JGSGreater Orlando #general

PTJAY@...
 

The JGSGreater Orlando will meet Sunday October 18 at 1:30 p.m. in the
Educational Conference Room of the Holocaust Memorial Center, on the JCC
Campus, Maitland, FL Guest speaker will be Liliane Webb, author of the
historical novel, "The Marranos". In order to be able to tell her children
of their Spanish heritage, she immersed herself in studies covering the
background of the Spanish Jews who did not convert to Catholicism, but either
left Spain or continued to live there as secret Jews. The result of these
studies was the book which deals with a 17th century plot to overthrow the
Inquisition.

Does anyone know if the records for the referenced institution still
exist somewhere. I had a relative I am reseaching pass away in the
Home in 1916 and I am looking for any information about him.

I could not find any mention of it in Warran Blatt's great book,
"Resources For Jewish Genealogy in the Boston Area"

Does anyone remember the place.

Thank You
