David,
Thanks for your response about the Registry Files. Would it be fair to
say that if there is a Cert of Arrival with the naturalization papers,
that no Registry was needed or created

DNA results vs records #dna

Elaine King
 

I have just received updated DNA results from Ancestry. They confirm what I have always known about my father's family, that they were German, or more particularly, Prussian. But in the naturalization records, etc., they are listed as having been born in Russia. (They also say they spoke English, which makes me wonder if they spent some time in England on their way to the U.S.)  We are talking about the late 1800s, so is this a geographic/historical thing, that country borders changed so much?

Re: VISA and Registry Files: USCIS information #records

Moishe,  this USCIS webpage has links to the various types of files available from the Genealogy Program: https://www.uscis.gov/history-and-genealogy/genealogy/historical-records-series-available-from-the-genealogy-program .  If you follow the link to each file type, you will be presented with a description of the contents, as well as an aid to finding the file number, if the number is available outside of USCIS.

For Registry Files (https://www.uscis.gov/history-and-genealogy/genealogy/historical-record-series/registry-files-march-2-1929-march-31-1944 ), there are some cases where the number can be found outside of USCIS.

For Visa Files (https://www.uscis.gov/history-and-genealogy/genealogy/historical-record-series/visa-files-july-1-1924-march-31-1944 ), the number isn't available outside USCIS & must be obtained from an Index Request.

Due to Wild Fires and Vital Records Lost Oregon State Vital Records Department Will Provide Free Replacements #announcements #records #usa

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

Due to the many wild fires in Oregon, which has so far burned over one million acres, many families have lost all their vital records.

 

As a result, the Oregon Center for Health Statistics has issued temporary rules to waive fees for certified copies of records for these families, in accordance with the Governor’s Executive Order 20-35.  The State Vital Records office will provide up to three certified certificates of birth, death, marriage, divorce, domestic partnership or dissolution of domestic partnership free of charge if the record is requested in connection with the wildfire response.  The temporary rules are in effect September 14, 2020 through March 1, 2021.

 

The temporary administrative order may be read at: https://www.oregon.gov/oha/PH/RULESREGULATIONS/SiteAssets/Pages/index/PH_63-2020.pdf

 

For more information please read the website posting at: https://www.oregon.gov/oha/PH/BIRTHDEATHCERTIFICATES/GETVITALRECORDS/Pages/Vital-Records-Fees-for-Oregonians-Affected-by-the-Wildfires-under-Executive-Oregon-No.-20-35.aspx

 

Ordering information may be read at: https://www.oregon.gov/oha/PH/BIRTHDEATHCERTIFICATES/GETVITALRECORDS/Pages/index.aspx

 

I have not found similar notifications on either the Washington State Department of Health Services website:

https://www.doh.wa.gov/LicensesPermitsandCertificates/BirthDeathMarriageandDivorce/OrderCertificates

 

I also have not found a similar posting on the California Department of Public Health website:

https://www.cdph.ca.gov/programs/chsi/pages/vital-records.aspx

 

Both California and Washington State are also suffering under severe fires and I have no idea whether they  adopt a similar rule following the Oregon emergency rule.

Re: Searching opatovsky #poland

Wondering if the surname Opatowsky indicates that the person's ancestors originated from Opatow (Apt) in Poland.  That is where my Rosenblum ancestors all came from.  

Thanks.

Zagradowka, Ukraine #ukraine #latinamerica

Merrie Blocker
 

Does anyone have any family that came from Zagradowka (Zahradivka) in Kherson Oblast in southern Ukraine. Jewish Gen doesn't list Zagradowka as a town where Jews lived, but I recently translated On a Clear April Morning     the story of a family that immigrated to Brazil in 1913 from Zagradowka and I am wondering if there are other Jewish families from there as well.  The family I know of was the family of Yosef Iolovitch.  Many thanks,  Merrie Blocker Silver Spring, MD


Re: Looking for info on Family Name Folis or Tolis in Eastern Poland #poland

Alexandra,

Have you located their U.S. naturalization documents or passenger manifest?
A good site to begin your search is:  www.familysearch.org

And, https://stevemorse.org/

Have you searched the databases at JewishGen for records from Poland and other countries? https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/

They may have chosen at some point to change their surname, but their name was not "changed at Ellis Island."  Names were sometimes spelled incorrectly when the manifests were written up in Europe.

As to two family members spelling the surname differently, I have seen that previously.  It is not unheard of.

Regards,

Sherri Bobish

Re: Looking for info on Family Name Folis or Tolis in Eastern Poland #poland

Dear Alexandra Sokol:

I have tried to search for a "D. Folis" and for a "D. Tolis" in the interface for the Ellis Island database at heritage.statueofliberty.org (one needs to register to see ship manifests, but registration is free) , and I have not had luck finding your "David Folis/Tolis" there: the only Folis-es or Tolis-es with a first initial D that I found were Greek or Hungarian. (Therefore, probably not Jews from the Russian Empire.)

I had somewhat-better luck looking for a David Sokol (while the interface found me a David Sokol who arrived in 1904 on the ship König Albert, the manifest image it gave for him didn't have him). I used Ancestry.com to try to find an immigrant David Sokol, and succeeded in finding this David Sokol -- an 18-year-old (if I read correctly, his occupation was given as "tanner") from what may have been written "Krinick" (?) in the Russian Empire (which may have been the town (said to be 28 miles east of Bialystok) whose name is officially spelled "Krynki"). (It seems that he stated he was coming to join an uncle whose last name was written "Salamon" (I can't decipher the 1st name as well) in Newark, New Jersey.)

(My maternal grandmother's parents ("Paat" on immigration records in 1898; later known as "Pat", "Patt", and (eventually) "Pate" in the US) emigrated from Bialystok, but I have learned within the past year or 2 that my grandmother's father's Pat family may have come from Krynki, so I've learned a tiny bit about it -- and apparently it was known for leather-production and tanning.

I'm not sure in which era there was a "Polish/Russian border" -- although Krynki is now near the Polish/Belarusian border, it was (for years before World War I) definitely within the Russian Empire, and I'm not sure what kind of "border" which smugglers would get over would have been near it before World War I. (Maybe the recollection is from 1918 or later?).)

I didn't find any other David Sokols on the Ellis Island database who arrived before 1917, but Ancestry.com has a 3-year-old "Dudio" Sokol who arrived in 1905 (seemingly with the mother), a (9-year-old) David "Sokel" (I think) who arrived in 1906, an 18-year-old David "Sokal" who arrived in 1910 from "Lemberg" (today's Lviv) in Galicia (not in the Russian Empire before World War I), and a 21-year-old "tailor" named David Sokoll who arrived in 1910 said to be from "Psholenka" in the Russian Empire, who stated that he was coming to meet his brother-in-law Adam Stribel (I think) who lived on Canal Street in lower Manhattan.

I think that the David Sokol who came from "Krinick" (and possibly Krynki) is more likely than anyone else I found today; I hope this research will be of help to you (and maybe others who will read this).

(I don't think that I have found much luck finding your great-grandmother "Fagabluma Sokol"; I have found a (34-year-old) Feige Gittel Sokol who arrived in 1911 (stated to have emigrated from Bialystok) with a young son and daughter -- who was said to be meeting a husband in Brooklyn.)

Best wishes for the fall and/or for Jewish Year 5781.

(researching Paat/Pat/Patt/Pate from Bialystok (and possibly Krynki), Poland, Kornhauser from Turka (now in Ukraine) -- and possibly Stefkowa (now in Poland), Kantor (probably from Bratslav -- now in Ukraine), Gelperin/Halperin (emigrated from today's Vilnius, Lithuania; father probably from a Krasnoye now in Belarus) -- and (to some degree) related families (including Jaffe in today's Lithuania -- ancestral to Mrs. Gelperin/Halperin (my great-grandmother) )

PS: As you (Alexandra Sokol) may soon find (if someone else hasn't posted about this before me) very few names were "changed in Ellis Island" -- as American immigration workers were instructed to not change the names given on passenger manifests.
