Re: How can I find NYC naturalization papers with only the record number? #general

Corey:
I believe after 1906 most naturalizations were done in a Supreme Court. Do you know what year your gg grandmother might have been naturalized since they came her in 1908 and where they might have lived? If you have an answer to that question it is a good place to start. Also, as far as her name-remember-in genealogy spelling doesn't count and names can be spelled more ways than we think. 
Good luck

Re: Family Tree Chart Especially for Cousins etc. #general

Pieter Hoekstra
 

Differences in spelling might be attributed to literacy. Not so many generations ago not everyone was literate so a name was recorded by a 3rd party who may not have been known the the name owner. The details recorded were what the recorder heard and how he/she believed it should be spelled.

Application for Naturalization #general

Sarina Roffe
 

I am looking for the Application for Naturalization for my grandmother and her ship record. She came into the US on Ellis Island in 1908 but I cannot find the record. I found an index for her naturalization in 1952. I also cannot find her marriage record.

 

I have tried all the usual sources – Ancestry, Fold3, Ellis Island, JDC Archives, My Heritage, Family Search – nothing. I also tried variant spellings – Shalo, Shallow, Shacalo, F for the first name, Farida ( the Arabic) – She came from Aleppo Syria.

 

Yet I find everything for my grandfather Joseph Nessim Missry.

 

Frieda came in as Frieda Shaalo in 1908. Married about June 1909 to Joseph Nessim Missry.

They show up as boarders in the 1910 Census and in different homes in every census after that.

 

Alien Registration Number is 5718566

Petition: 488840

Roll 96 Enter

There is a number on the top of the card also 6986864.

She was naturalized on 6/3/1952 under her married name Frieda Missry.

 

Any ideas??

Brick wall locating Anna Goldman #poland #unitedkingdom

Greg Tuckman
 

Hello fellow genealogists,

I have a brick wall in my family tree and am hoping someone might help me break through it. 

My grandfather’s sister’s birth name is Hana FIRER / FUHRER, born in Radom, Poland on December 4/16, 1878.  The record was recorded in 1880.   She is the daughter of Jakob Icek FIRER and Fajga Brandla AUSTRIAN.

Her Social Security Application in 1939 gives her birth date as January 1, 1884.  She was living in the Bronx at the time of application.

She died on February 15, 1965 in Brooklyn, NY and is buried in Beth David Cemetery in Elmont, NY.  Her headstone indicates she was a mother and grandmother.  The contact information from the cemetery indicates a grandson named Paul (no surname given) who lived in Miami Beach.  I found no other GOLDMAN’s in the family plot.

Her married name is GOLDMAN.  I only have an initial for her husband’s given name.  My grandfather arrived in the US on October 4, 1913 and was going to stay with his brother-in-law, “T GOLDMAN”.

There is a family story that she lived in England before she came to the US and ‘left a family behind’.  I have no idea of any truth behind this story.

I have not found her on the Ellis Island data base.  I have no idea of her husband’s given name or any of her children.  Any and all help would be appreciated.

Seeking professional translator for Polish Records #translation #poland

Moses Jefferson
 

Hi folks,

I’m looking for a professional translator to help me translate Polish records for a reasonable fee.
I’m aware of the amazing service JGEN provide known as ViewMate, but as some of the records from certain Polish regions were recorded in long documents, I’m seeking somebody to translate the entire entry word for word. Not just extract the names and dates.

Please contact me here with any information that can help me.

Best, Moses J.


Re: Passport archive Hungary-Romania? #hungary #romania

Beth Long
 

I can't say this is universally true, but in my research in Hungarian archives, I have occasionally found lists of those who applied for passports, but no actual files of information or photos. Your only hope would be that the person kept the passport and the family has it in their possession. I am speaking here of turn-of-the century and earlier records. Perhaps passports issued later left more of a paper trail.

Re: Searching for PHILIPS family possibly from Suvalk (Suwalki) Area -Translate Family Name from Grave Marker? Philips in US #poland #lithuania #translation

Renee Steinig kindly found the family that I was looking for on JRI-Poland. From her email to me,

"Aha! I found these Suwalki birth records on JRI-Poland:

 

Dyna Rocha SOLINSKA b: 1837 parents: Abram, Feiga

 

Itka Szyfra FILIPOWSKA b: 1859 parents: Abel Hirsz, Dyna Rocha SOLINSKA

Mowsza Aron FILIPOWSKI b: 1861 parents: Abel Hirsz, Dyna Rocha SOLINSKA

Fejga FILIPOWSKA b: 1864 parents: Abel Hirsz, Dyna Rocha

 

Mowsza Aron must be Morris, and Fejga may be Fannie!"

With the original name, I was also able to find and see those records.  I am eternally grateful to her and to this group!

Maury Kitces
 



Here is an interesting possibility.  Tevye Philips, from the Bialystok area, died in Albany.  Like Abraham, is father was also Eliahu.  The Hirsh in Abraham's name probably came from an earlier ancestor, and Tevya had a son named Hirsch.

Tevye's immigration name was Mayer Gaczkowski.

Re: How can I find NYC naturalization papers with only the record number? #general

David Oseas
 

Cory,

There is a good write-up on manifest markings, written by Marian L. Smith (Historian emeritus, USCIS), on JewishGen:  https://www.jewishgen.org/InfoFiles/Manifests/occ/

Starting in 1926, the INS required verification of the information on the Petition for Naturalization against passenger manifests, over concern for fraud during the naturalization process. 

Unfortunately, there isn't a lot you can do with the number that you cite:  it indicates that your relative filed to receive a "Certificate of Arrival" in the New York district (2-) in February, 1943.  There is no index to the CofA numbers.  For the people that I've researched, the verification was done anywhere from a year prior, up to two weeks before filing a petition, though the average is about one month prior.

The (404) [or a (505) notation] indicates that the information on the petition differed sufficiently from the manifest that the clerk was unable to certify that this was the correct person.  In my research, I have found that only a few passengers with a 404 or 505 notation went on to successfully naturalize.

Immigrants typically Americanized their names during the naturalization process and this information is recorded within the documentation.  Most naturalization indexes contain both the original name upon arrival, and the new name that the citizen will be using.  The name Meier frequently became Max in the US.

Starting in 1940, aliens residing in the US were required to file an Alien Registration form.  For people that did not become citizens before 1944, those forms were used to start an A-File with the INS.

You may find that a USCIS index search (https://www.uscis.gov/history-and-genealogy/genealogy/searching-index ) will be fruitful -- for a (currently) $65 fee, they will search their indexes to see if they can locate a C-File or an A-File for your relative.  Based on the results of the search, you can request copies of the records (currently, an additional $65), or may even be able to locate them yourself.

Regards,
David Oseas
