Re: Why a 1911 Registry Office Wedding? #unitedkingdom #general

Not all synagogues had a licence from the authorities to certify weddings.

My parent's own wedding in 1952 had to be certified at the local registry office after the synagogue ceremony

The United Synagogue website has a facility to search for the Chief Rabbi's authorisation for their synagogue wedding and the certificate it holds will give details of the synagogue where the ceremony took place and their Hebrew names

Family Tree Maker 2019 has a facility in the Publish mode for exporting a tree as a one-page pdf. You can find it by clicking  on the Share  icon, top right..  You can then print the saved file in any size you chose with a suitable printer. I've  printed copies of an A4 print-up with details too small to read on an A3 sheet at my local library, where the copier enlarges to A3 if required.  Alternatively, a commercial printing firm can work on your one-page pdf to your requrements.
FTM  also has a facility to produce a  tree in book form, which I haven't explored myself.  But I have pieced together  trees from several A3 sized pages (all printed at local library) by just being careful to produce them all to the same scale so that the  lines match from one sheet to the next.

Re: Why a 1911 Registry Office Wedding? #unitedkingdom #general

Jill Whitehead
 

I do not know about register office weddings in early 20th century, but I do know that it was not uncommon for marriages to take place at home, certainly in Scotland. My great grandfather's niece was married at his home in Edinburgh. He had come over in 1870 aged 15 with other siblings and cousins who were younger than him.   He married his cousin in 1877 in a synagogue in Edinburgh, but his niece (sister's daughter) had come over in the 1890s after her mother's and father's deaths, and represented a "poorer"  part of the family. She was married in 1906 at home with my great grandfather as witness.  This did seem to be a pattern with other similar instances ie poorer members of families coming over later being married at home. The first instance of Register Office weddings in my family was in the 1930's.

-- FamilyTreemaker allows you to export you tree you've constructed and saved in the Publish mode as a single-page pdf file. You can the print a copy of  this at any size you wish with your installed prinr programme. Most home printers don't print on paper larger than A4, but I've been able to enlarge my A4 sheet (which had details too small to read)  on a copier at at the local library, which allows sizes up to A3.  Alternatively there is  a facility to print the tree in book form in the FTM 2017 Publish mode, By clicking on the headings in the Publish mode, and/or right-clicking names on the original tree you'll find lots of other editing facilities as well.

Preserving Lviv Jewish Cemeteries #ukraine

Tony Hausner
 

Several members of the Lviv Jewish Community have been battling with the Lviv City Government over the preservation of the Jewish cemeteries.  There are two cemeteries in the city.  This battle has been going on in the courts for many years and the leader of this effort has been Rabbi Meylakh Sheykhet and the UCSJ (Union of Councils for Jews in the Former Soviet

Union).  Here is a link to a letter from UCSJ to Secretary Pompeo about this issue (See https://tinyurl.com/pompeoletterlvivcemeteries
 
Recently, Rabbi Sheykhet has learned that lawyers in the Ukranian Parliament are willing to submit legislation to protect the cemeteries.  He is asking for contributions of $5000 to pay these lawyers for their services.  Please let me know if you are willing to make contributions for this cause and the amount.

Re: how to print a large tree #general

Dahn Cukier
 

Printing a large tree. If you want to print on a number of pages
there are many ways to do so, but to print on one large page, you
will need to use a plotter. *

I produce a tree in jpg format from "Agelong Tree".
I load Agelong from a GED file I produce from the software
I use, but does not have a way to produce a
"nice" (subjective) tree.

I take the JPG file on a flash drive to a print service
I find near most city halls where people
copy, or print,  blue prints. Be sure they print
the file at 100% and not as some programs save the
file. I have used only 2 locations, one required
TIF format and the other PDF. Each was able
to convert my JPG to their formats.

I have 1600, 1300 are linked and I get a tree of 40cm by
18 meters. 

Additional question: The largest home format printers I find
are A3, does anyone know of a home printer that will
take continuous paper?

Dahn Cukier

* In the olden days, before 2005 or so, there were dot matrix printers
and software to print sideways on continuous paper.

Re: How to find UKRAINE birth and marriage records #ukraine #records #russia

Hi Deborah,

At this point there are no translations. You must either learn to read Pre-Revolution and Hebrew handwriting, or hire someone to do this. I opted for the former route, and can make out pretty well most names till the handwriting gets dreadful.

JewishGen has indexed a small number of the records, but I don't know if Zaslav is included.

Re: Why a 1911 Registry Office Wedding? #unitedkingdom #general

peggyfreedman@...
 

I found a similar story in a newspaper clipping (available during the IAJGSG Conference on one of the paid sites).  I have attached the article from the St. Louis Post Dispatch in 1910.

Apparently, my very proper Great Aunt Rose tried to elope with the love of her life, Herman B. Gotteib in 1910.  Her mother grabbed the couple, took them home, called the Rabbi, and there was a small wedding at the house that evening.

This is all very far away from the Liverpool registry office, but the article mentions that six of Rose's first cousins had already eloped.  Rose was born in Latvia.(Rachel Poole mentions that part of her family was from Latvia, too.)

I wonder if we are overthinking this.  I wonder if young couples at the beginning of the Modern New Era of the Twentieth Century just wanted to skip some of the ornate rituals of a very traditional Jewish wedding.  Having a Rabbi at the Registry office might be a simple compromise.

It's not proof, but something else to consider.

Marian,
Thanks for explaining more of the 1929 law regarding the Registry.
Would an arrival in the 1940's, with a Certificate of arrival, still
possibly have a Registry File? If it would, what might it contain?
Anything else not found in the Cert, Declaration and/or Petition?

Wishing everyone a Shana Tova,

Looking for records from the town of Oświęcim #austria-czech #poland

synhe@...
 

I am interested in finding any information about the GERSTNER family of Oświęcim. My grandfather, Moritz GERSTNER (28 April 1910 - 26 Apr 1998) told us that he was born in Oświęcim to his parents Leopold Mordechai Leib GERSTNER (28 May 1879 - 28 June 1921) and Saliza Leiba nee TEICHNER (012 Sep 1877 - 17 May 1933).
 
So far, I was not able to find any vital records of the Gerstner of Oświęcim and was wondering if any such records exist. I there are known records, could anyone please advise me as to the location of such records?
 
Thank you very much and Shana Tova!

Jewish Genealogical Documents from the United States and Czechoslovakia #general

Michelle Sandler
 

I was contacted by a Christian Genealogist living in Banning California who was given a collection of original documents from the United States and Czechoslovakia from her tax accountant.  She sent me the package so as to not throw it out.  The family name is Weisz, William and Aurulia. It looks like he died in 1957 and was born in 1900. If anyone knows what to do with this package I would be grateful to hear about it.  There is a Naturalization certificate, a passport, a  ship's arrival record printout and many documents in the Czech language.  If you are on the board of the Czech Research Division please get a hold of me.
