ViewMate Translation Request - Russian Marriage Record #general

Aaron Slotnik
 

Hello

I am seeking confirmation of all the names on the marriage record of my
great-grandparents Anshel Zlotnik and Gitel Rzeznik (spelling?).

In a previous translation >from 10 years ago on a poorer image, there was
some question about the mothers' maiden names of the bride and groom.
Anshel's mother's name was transliterated as Chaya Anshelow and Gitel's mother's
name was transliterated as Sura Gelda Nusanow. I would like to confirm that
those are indeed surnames and not patronymics.

Neither of those surnames are present in the JRI-Poland indices for
Zakroczym or Nasielsk (where these families were from) however, there are
records for ENCEL and MOCNY. Could those be alternate transliterations of
Anshel and Nusan respectively?

I've uploaded the marriage record to ViewMate at the following location for
your review:

what resources might I search to locate Jewish obituaries for New York
City?


The paper of record was The New York Times and it is fully digitized.
People put paid death notices in the NY Times and only the more prominent
people got an obit. Subscribers to the Times get access to the archives
or it is available via many public libraries or else by subscription.
Some of the NY Times death notices are also on Ancestry or on FultonHistory.

Another place of course to check in its own right is the FultonHistory page
which is free but difficult to search.

Also the Brooklyn Daily Eagle is on line in part via the Brooklyn library.

The NY Public Library also has some collections on its page but I think all
of them require a library card number to access remotely or of course
they are all available in the library buildings.

New York City had more than a dozen major daily newspapers in the 1930s and
1940s not to mention the Jewish/Yiddish newspapers and local papers for
individual areas or groups. The New York Public Library has a vast
collection on microfilm but there are no indexes.

(US) National Archives Hosts Program on Lincoln and the Jews May 7 #usa

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The (US) National Archives will host a program on President Lincoln and the
Jews with Jewish historian Dr. Jonathan D. Sarna on Thursday, May 7 at 7PM
at the William G. McGowan Theater of the National Archives Museum (entrance
is on Constitution and 9th St NW). The event is part of the National
Archives commemoration of the 150th anniversary of President Lincoln's
death.

Professor Sarna's book, Lincoln and the Jews: A History, tells the story of
relationship between the Jews and President Lincoln. President Lincoln's
lifetime coincided with the emergence of Jews on the national scene in the
United States. President Lincoln promoted Jewish equality, appointed
numerous Jews to public office and had Jewish advisors and supporters.

To read more go to:
http://www.archives.gov/dc-metro/events/may.html#lincoln-jews .There is a
You tube logo next to the meeting announcement which means it to watch
live or catch up later (see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=87406ooqg28).

A book signing will follow the program. Presented in partnership with the

New education course - The Jewish in Jewish Genealogy #usa

Nancy Holden
 

JewishGen Education will offer a new online forum - The Jewish in
Jewish Genealogy
May 1 - May 29

Genealogy is more than statistics and facts. This class will give
you a chance to understand the Jewish immigration experience and
we'll discover tricks and tips to successfully search for Jewish
ancestry.

With each passing generation, the torch passes to children whose
lifestyle is further >from the immigrant experience. Now we have to
dig deep in order to bring up images and voices >from the past, to
understand and recreate their lives.

This class will cover Jewish institutions in the old country and
in the U.S. It will help a researcher discover patterns and
prejudices that affected the way life was lived in the new country.
Jewish life cycles, customs and culture, origin of family names and
naming practices, assimilation and acculturation, migrations
patterns and surname mapping will be part of this study.

For this class a student will work on one immigrant family and the
town (or city) where they first settled -- New York, Chicago, St.
Louis or points west. The course includes general research tasks
and assignments to give insight into the Jewish search.

Class is taught in a *forum* setting, private to this class. The
site is open at all times for students to post. The instructor
answers posts daily. Cost is $120 for 4 weeks. The full class
description is at
http://www.jewishgen.org/education/description.asp?course=40022.
