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

Jaxschwab@...
 

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, and would
certainly have applied there.

According to NYGenWeb, Courts of Common Pleas ceased to exist by 1847 (?), and
files were transferred to County Courts. The only information I found on this
site refers to the Court on Chambers Street for vital records (not
naturalizations). Does anyone know which NYC court might have the originals
of Naturalization records?

TIA,

WERTHEIMER #general

Judith Romney Wegner
 

Is there a connection between the family names: WERTHEIMER and
WURTHEIMER ?
Gerard Marx
This was a fun one! Here's a helpful hint: With names this LONG, and
only one slight variant in one vowel -- especially when both spellings
(Wert and Wurt) have the same sound in English -- one should always suspect
that they are the same name, one being a misspelling of the other. Names
can so easily become misspelled in a generation or two, or even in the
original transition to English >from the source language -- which in this
case was obviously German. (Note: this reasoning cannot be relied on for
shorter one- or two- syllable names, which in European languages (unlike
Hebrew) often come >from different roots.)

So, which is correct -- Wertheimer or Wurtheimer? In this particular case,
I happened to recall that Wertheim is a German town; but any time a
German name looks like it MIGHT be a town if you drop the "-er" ending,
it's worth checking out. Since Wertheim is indeed a town, Wertheimer means
an inhabitant of Wertheim (among Jews, such names often connotes a FORMER
inhabitant who moved somewhere else). As the Nat. Geographic Atlas lists
no Wurtheim with "u", any Wurtheimers are probably misspelled
Wertheimers! to cover my back, I did also check for Wurzheim -- figuring
Wurzheimer could easily be misspelled Wurtheimer. But, no Wurzheim --
only Wurzbach and Wurzburg (the latter with Umlaut).

I thought it worthwhile (werthweil? wurthweil??) to spell out the
process, because names based on German towns are very common among our
Jewish forebears [yes! it does have an "e" in the middle and does not come
from the verb to "forbear"] Any name that looks like a possible German
town can easily be checked in an atlas or on the Web -- and it's such FUN
to track things down by sleuthing!

Henry Cantor - In Memorium #general

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.
