Family history record forms #general

Irwin Siegel <imsiegel@...>
 

I am getting ready to send out blank family history record forms to all
my relatives in order to collect family history information. I already
have the record forms put out by Judith R. Frazin in 1984 (Jewish Family
History Record and Immigrant Family History Record). Does anyone know
if these forms have been revised/updated ? Also, any other suggestions
for family record forms that are user friendly, comprehensive, and useful
for Jewish genealogy purposes?

Thanks for any suggestions, ideas or information on this topic.

Cook Co, IL maven needed #general

Stephen Warshall <s_warshall@...>
 

I am trying to locate the petition for naturalization of a relative
who was naturalized in the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois, in
1906.

I obtained an index to naturalizations covering the relevant period
through my local FHC (microfilm # 1023966) and indeed found my
relative listed big as life, with a pointer to his naturalization
record in "book 11, page 35"; I was briefly happy, but then my
troubles began.

First of all, the index was clearly covering several different
series of records for the same period (apparently the Court
kept separate files for ordinary aliens, minors and military
veterans), and it was quite ambiguous which series "book 11"
was in. The index seemed to indicate that my relative was in the
"minor" records, but it was not very clear. So far, not too bad; I
figured I could just order films of all three series of records and
among them find the right one. But then the big disaster:

The microfiches at the FHC indicate no Circuit Court naturalization
records at all with book (or volume) number 11 in about 1906. The
only volume 11 listed is one of much earlier naturalizations (19th
century). So presumably the book I want was never filmed. (By the
way, by coincidence, there is a vol 11 for 1906 among the records of
another court, Superior Court, but it IS just a coincidence; I
looked.)

I am reluctant to send a blind request to the Circuit Court for a
lookup since I am not even able to say for sure which series of
records to look in. Is there a Cook Co maven out there who might
help?

My query in a nutshell: what Naturalization records in the Circuit
Court have a book (or volume) 11 which covers the year 1906?
And how can I get a copy of a specific record in that book?

Busher #general

ShelleyPN <shelleypn@...>
 

When my grandfather, Wolf Paschelinsky,at age 17 in 1900 emigrated from
Lithuania to the USA his occupation was listed as *busher*.......perhaps I am
reading the handwriting incorrectly......but could anyone hazard a guess what
occupation this is?

Thanks in advance.

Searching POLONETSKY #general

Glenda Rogers <gar929@...>
 

My grandparents, Samuel (Shmuel) POLONETSKY and Sarah GREENBERG
Polonetsky died in Salem, Mass. My grandfather died in 1935 and my
grandmother in 1950s (?). I never knew my grandfather and hardly knew
my grandmother. Hopefully, one of the readers of this wonderful group
might know something about either or both of them.

They emigrated >from Poland (?) and lived their lives in Salem,
Massachusetts where my father, Joseph David (now deceased) was born in
1915. He was a "change of life baby"; his sisters were all older.
Their names were Etta Polonetsky GELIN; Ida Polonetsky YOFFE; Mamie
Polonetsky ARONSON; and a brother Bernard (Sheppy) Polonetsky.

If anyone has any information, I'd sure appreciate it.

I'm new to this, and am sorry I didn't ask questions of my relatives
when they were alive. Now it seems it's too late.

Thank you for any help.

The town of Dunayov and family GOTTLIEB #general

Shirley Rosen <shirli@...>
 

I am posting this for a friend who has no access to e-mail or the internet.
She is looking for information about the town where her father was born. He
had explained to her that he was born a town called Dunayov, or Dunayev in
Galicia. According to his story, the village had been destroyed in the
Austro-Hungarian wars. At the end of the fighting, this woman's great great
grandfather, an officer in Franz Josef's army, was given the assignment by
to rehabilitate the village. His name was Yitzhak GOTTLIEB or GOTT. His
family was given acreage of forests, and the family continued to work in
lumbering until one member of the family was killed by a falling tree. The
family started leaving the village at the end of the 19th century. There is
apparently a plaque in the town commemorating the effort of this man to
reestablish the town.

We looked for Dunayev in the Shtetl-seeker, and found two and can't decide
which is right one. One is Dunajov, Slovakia, just south of the Polish
border, and the other is Dunayev in western Ukraine, also not far >from the
Polish border.

Does anyone have any clues as to the correct location of the town and more
on the history of the location? Is anyone else searching family in this
town? We found noone in the Family Finder.

Thanks in advance for the help.
Please reply to the e-mail addresss and I will give the replies to my friend.

Does anyone know of a Jack FREEDMAN formerly of Dorchester, MA. By trade he

information regarding his ancestory and/or descendents. He was a nephew of my
grandfather Jacob Freedman of Riga, Latvia who resided in Boston, MA prior to

I believe either Jack Freedman or one of his children may have moved to
Framingham, MA.,,,,,,,,thank you.
