Death records for Stillborns 1890 - 1900 NYC #general

Paula Blank
 

Were there birth/death records kept for stillborns and/or babies who died soon after
birth? My great grandparents, Richard Langer and Fannie Peterfreund, lost 2-3 babies
between 1893-1895. I have found their other 8 children - including one who only lived
for 11 months.

Thanks,
Paula Blank

Notary records online for many Galician towns #general

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

The Polish State Archives in Przemysl has posted online scans of notary records
from Debica, Dobromil, Glogow Malopolski, Kolbuszowa, Krakowiec, Lezajsk, Nisko,
Pilzno, Pruchnik, Przeworsk, Radomysl,Radymno, Ropczyce, Rozwadow, Rzeszow, Sadowa
Wisznia, Sokolow Malopolski, Tarnobrzeg, Tyczyn, and Ulanow. Most of these towns
were recently added and, for Rzeszow, more records were recently added. Most of the
notary records date >from the late 19th to early 20th century, with some >from the
mid 19th century.

These records sometimes contain valuable genealogical information (e.g., if
concerning inheritance), sometimes very little genealogical information -- there is
no way to tell without examining them. Unfortunately, it is not always easy to find
or interpret records. Only a small portion of the records have (handwritten)
indices. I have posted instruction at
http://genealogyindexer.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5016. The scans are
viewable via http://www.przemysl.ap.gov.pl/skany.

If you plan to examine these records, be prepared to spend a significant amount of
time looking for your names, with no guarantee of success. Ideally, volunteers
interested in these towns could create name indices (where missing), at least of
the (likely Jewish)signatures at the end of the records (which might not include
all names mentioned in the records).

If you need help translating a record, try posting it to ViewMate. I
regret that I am unable to provide individual assistance.

SPECTOR family brick walls #lithuania

Marlene Etlinger
 

I've reached 3 brick walls in searching for my Spector family that settled
in Brooklyn, NY: 1) finding passenger records; 2) Lithuanian/Belarus records
for my Spector family; and 3) determining the correct 1910 census record
for Molly (Matel) Spector.

My mgm, Molly (Matal or Malka) Spector was born in Grodno around 1894 to
Menachem Mendel and Hasse (Chasia) Susel (Zisel) SPECTOR. Hasse Susel
died when Molly was very young. Molly had an older sister, Anna (Hinda),
born about 1886.

Molly came to New York about 1908. There are two Molly Spectors in the 1910
census and I do'nt know which (if either) is my grandmother. One of the
Mollys was a boarder in a household with another boarder, Shiman SPECTOR.
I have not been able to trace him any further to link him to my SPECT9R
FAMILY.=20

Anna came to NY about 1904. She married Leon CHERWINSKY (in the US?);
Leon had been in the US since 1888 in Boston and then NY, and they had
three children - Bluma (b. 1904 in Manhattan), Adolph (b. 1908) and Rae
(b. 1914). Along the way Cherwinsky became SHERWIN. Anna lived in
Brooklyn most of her life. Leon died 1932. Anna died in 1981.
Except for 1910 (Molly and Anna), I have found all the census records
and death records for these two sisters. I have researched but not found
passenger records for both Hinda>Anna and Matal>Molly. I have not been
able to find marriage records for Hinda>Anna and Leon CHERWINSKY.
I have made an exhaustive search for Spector in Litvak Sig, Belarus SIG,
Vilna and Kovno area Belarus SIG Grodno area checking out records for names,
dates and places.

I would appreciate help in trying to break any of these brick walls.

Shana Tova - Lodz Registration Cards Extraction Update #lodz #poland

Margalit Ashira Ir
 

Dear Researchers,

As we approach Rosh Hashanah 5777, on behalf of the Lodz Registration Cards
Extraction Team, we want to wish you all a very happy and sweet New Year.

We began extracting the names of Jewish family members in February of this
year. To date, we have reviewed more than 21,000 scans and extracted the
names, birth dates and birth cities of nearly 20,000 Jewish souls who were
recorded in Lodz during the period of 1916-1921. It is with gratitude that
we thank our volunteers who sit at their computers for many hours a day
reading, researching, identifying and recording Jewish names, towns, marital
status and professions. These are the people who work diligently - driven
by what our volunteers call "holy work", "G-D's work", or simply "we need to
memorialize" our brothers and sisters who perished during the Shoah. Each
name we extract further diminishes the Nazi's attempt at totally
annihilating the Jewish people.

The resulting data will provide researchers and their families with insight
into the lives and movement of our people during this time frame and will
serve as valuable research and history of the Polish Jews in Lodz.

Our volunteer team consists of Alesya in Russia, Fritz in Germany, Yohannan
and Fay in Australia, Billy and Duncan in Kenya, Miriam, Arye, Zeev and
Yehudit in Israel, David in Canada, and David, Yael, Walter, Rochelle,
Deborah, Dina and Karen in the United States. Yasher Koach to these angels
in the background, please send them a shout out, via me, with your thanks
for their incredible work.

We expect to upload the first group of 20,000 names by end of this year.

If you wish to have your family's name extracted quickly, for a qualifying
contribution of $54 per family name, a customized worksheet will be made
available to you.

We anticipate receiving additional scans >from the Polish State Archives in
the near future. The review of the estimated 175,000 names we have today
will likely take several years. We need more volunteers to help us expedite
the project. Please contact me to become part of this dynamic team.

We wish you all a Shana Tova v'metuka, may you all be graced with happiness,
good health, peace and the connection to lost families.
