NYC Marraiges in the 1940s #general

A. E. Jordan
 

Help I hit a brickwall. I need some ideas.

I know Joseph REICHER married a woman named Sima in 1942, 1943, 1944, or
thereabouts. New York City Clerk tels me that a) I can not do a personal
search of the rcords, they have to do it. b) w/o the wife's full name they
will not do a search. If I had her maiden name I would not be doing the
search in the firstplace!

Any ideas how to get around this roadblock?

(Aside-- Aren't you stunned sometimes at how unhelpful people are.)

Thanks for some creative ideas!

LDS Microfilms for Chmielnik #general

David Price <David_Price@...>
 

1. The LDS microfilm #1192418 has vital statistics for Chmielnik 1876-1877.
It also has vital statistics for Ciepielow (although I read the title
Skorowidz). Is this a town nearby?

2. The LDS microfilm #1808864 has vital statistics but I am not sure for
which town. On it the title Alfavum and the years 1880-1884. There is also
the years 1877-1878. Is the whole microfilm for Chmielnik? Some? If so,
which years? Is there another town on the film? If so,which years?

Looking to Verify Hebrew Name #general

Gary Schwartz <G.Schwartz@...>
 

Hello,

I'm hoping someone can help. My fiancee would like to verify her
Hebrew name; unfortunately, records are extremely scarce and we cannot
locate any documentation.

She recalls her name as being Mashi SHENGEL - is this a possible
Hebrew/Yiddish name for a girl?

Because her anglicised surname is SHOWMAN, I'd guess that SHENGEL
represents that name. But Mashi? Her (late) father was of Russian
origin, if that helps.

Thanks for any assistance. Please respond either to the group or to
my email address, first removing the NOSPAM. spam spoiler in my return
address.

A few months ago we discussed how the name Gottlieb became Liebmann in
German and Lipman in Yiddish. With that in mind it's not hard to understand
how any names referring to G-d, like Eliezer, or religious celebrations,
like Yom Tov or Pesach, are related to Gottlieb-Liebmann-Lippman-Lippa.

names, and also make use of texts on the halachos of gittin, but I don't
always have time to reply).

Jaime, I discovered a GALANT family married into my HIM[M]ELHOCH family,
some of whom were >from Riga. This particular branch moved to South Africa.
You might check with the South African genealogy societies in your search
for the family. Lena HIMMELHOCH b. 1877 married a man by the name of GALANT
and they had two sons. That is as far as I have gotten so far!

Good luck! Martha

Re: UK refugee list question #general

Harold Pollins <pollins@...>
 

I think you will find that lists of missing relatives were frequently
published in the Jewish Chronicle over a very long period. Certainly there
were more after World War II and I'm sure my memory is not false when I
think I saw them in the paper, as a youngster, in the 1930s.

Hallo all,
If anyone has access to the records of Jews in the Austrian army,
could you please look to to see if there is any mention of my husband's
uncle: LACHS Meilach (Michl, Mickl, Michael ?)
He is thought to have been killed while serving in the army in WWI.
Many thanks

From: JMOSSERI@delphi.com

Your question is a valid one. The Baghdadi origin families are very
genealogically orientated, but have seem to have little contact with
the genealogical communtiy. I think this is because many of these
families have documented their story constantly over the centuries and
have no real need for Jewishgen!.
However, at the recent seminar in Los Angeles there were talks on :
Jews of Iran Debbie Adhemi
On being Sephardic- Children of the Diaspora
The Jews of Iraq: Tracing Sephardic and and Mizrahi Families in the Land
where Judaism was born
The Jews of the Ottoman Empire
Centre for Iranian Jewish History

We in the JGS Great Britain have a couple who are specialists in
Egyptian and Syrian Jewish genealogy, and our chairman is an expert on
the Ottoman Empire Jews.
