New York State Death Index #usa

Robert Avner
 

I found two relatives on the New York State Death Index where the place of death is curiously listed as Adelphi, Kings, New York. One is Joseph Haller who died Dec. 4, 1965. The certificate number is 92248. The other is Bertha Miller who died on July 7, 1967 & her certificate # 54398. When I first found the place of death listing on Arthur Haller I thought it was a mistake although it is on the original microfilm at the NYC National Archives & transcribed as such on Ancestry.com.
Does anyone have any idea where Adelphi, Kings is since the NY State Death Index doesn’t include NYC? As I imagine a lot of members know it is now almost impossible to get genealogy records from the NYS Dept of Vital Records & has been for at least 2 years. So records must be obtained from localities.
Thank You
Robert Avner

Thank you, Linda. I know this adress. I want to find descendants of Bobr jews who emigrated before 1917 or later.

Suwalk-Lomza Group: Copies of Landsmen #lithuania #poland

Jeff Marx
 

The JGS of LA has a nearly-complete set of the journal, stored in the Family History Library of the LDS Temple in Westwood.

I should add that, though, indeed, much (but not all) of the material that appeared in Landsmen can now be found in various, searchable databases, when the history of late 20th century Jewish genealogical efforts is written, that Marlene Silverman's efforts to create a first-class research journal, devoted to one specific geographic area, should be remembered.

Re: New Jersey Records #general #usa

The index to New Jersey marriage records is available on Ancestry. The marriage license for the 1920s would be available at the New Jersey State Archives in Trenton.  
 
You can order a record from the archive using the instructions found at
 
Given the current situation, I'm not sure if they are currently working.

Re: New Jersey Records #general #usa

 

You should probably locate the records first from the New Jersey Marriage Index on Ancestry. That will give you the exact year and certificate number, so obtaining a copy of the certificate will be $10.

I was able to obtain my grandparent's marriage license, once I figured out they were married in NJ, which was not obvious!

Re: Ostrog Revision List and More #ukraine

Ronald D. Doctor
 

Hi Rachelle,

You asked about the Ostrog Revision Lists. The Kremenets District Research Group has translated the 1816 Ostrog Revision List. Our Concordance (a master name and place index) on our Kehilalinks website contains more than 11,600 entries for this revision list and other records concerning Ostrog. You can search the index at no charge by pointing your browser to:
https://tinyurl.com/Ostrog-on-Kremenets-Website

These Ostrog entries are derived from the documents we have translated since about the year 2002. After translation, names and places are entered into the Concordance along with information identifying the document and location in the document where the name and/or location are found. Our Concordance currently has about 400,000 entries for people who lived in the towns of the Kremenets district of Ukraine, as well as people who lived outside of the district in towns mentioned in the records. Some of the entries in the Source and Location in Source columns of the Concordance are rather cryptic. To understand them, please be sure to read the Introduction and Guide document. A link to it is at:
https://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/Kremenets/web-pages/master-surnames.html

And, of course, if you need any help, just contact me.

Good luck with your searching. Let me know how your search comes out.

Best,

Re: Yiddish or Hebrew name for IDA #belarus #names

Sally Bruckheimer
 

My 2nd g aunt came to the US in 1870 and was caught by the 2nd enumeration of the 1870 census in NYC as Ada. She had arrived only 18 Oct 1870, so she didn't have much time to change her name (although the clerk could have).
 
She was also known to her family as Ida.

Re: Name IDA #names

lmandlawitz@...
 

My mother Ida Shirley was also a Chaya -- Chaya Soreh.  Among the family and Jewish friends she was known as Hikey.  She was named for her grandmother who lived and died in the town of Novozybkov, Russia, in the Pale.  I've wondered about her name.  She was known variously as Henia Dvoshe, Chaya Soreh, Sarah, and Blanche.  Does anyone know how/if all of these names are connected?


Re: Yiddish or Hebrew name for IDA #belarus #names

My g-g grandmother came to America as Ettel.

On the 1915 NY Census, she was listed as Ida, the only time that happened.

I was wondering if New Jersey had applications for marriage licenses in the 1920s, and if they did, how I could access them.  Searching for LIFSHITZ from Mir, Belarus, SOLOMON from Radziejow, Poland and GOTTFRIED from Galicia.  Ellen GOTTFRIED, Plainview, New York

Wow! I had found the index entry in the Ancestry's NY birth index, but since I could not be sure about it, I had set it aside. I have not come up with the Idea of searching for all Sylvias worldwide with that birth date! And luckily her obituary is very verbose, as if it was written for the need of future genealogists in mind. 

Thank you so much!

Re: What happened to Suwalki-Lomza group run by Marilyn? #lithuania #poland

Esther Brill
 

I’d love to know as well – I was lucky to put a reference up on Jews of Grajewo on FB and got a translation of the reference.  I’ve tried writing to see about ordering the collection but got no response.  I did find  out that the  LDS repository in Salt Lake City has copies of this journal –  but unfortunately my trip there for this weekend got cancelled.

 

I think I heard that Marilyn had retired but no other info related might be in charge now

 

Good luck to all in trying to find information

 

I continue to look for information for My paternal family who came from Grajewo and Szczucyn = names include

Esther Goldberg – parents Shlomo Goldberg and Branna Trcynska – mgm

Mordechai – Elchanan David(Jankel)  Jablonski > David Levine when emigrating to NYC in 1913 – his parents were Mortchaj/Mordechai Jablonski and Leja Grossman (daughter of Leybka and  Basia

                Mordechais parents  ? son of Dan and Cywia

 

My father (Saul Levine arriving with mother and siblings in 1917)  always said family’s name was originally Brukash (sp?) but have not found  any evidence  I’ve also seen Jablonsky as spelling)

 

Hope everyone  is staying well and safe and that this all ends so we can attend the IAJGS in Aug. in San Diego

Re: Name IDA #names

Jeff Miller
 

My mother’s Hebrew name was Chaya Sara, English was Sarah Ida. I understand that Chaya is a name given to a child who is either ill (and the parent wants to get G-d’s help healing the child), or as a general way of wishing the child to be healthy.

My mother’s paternal grandmother was Eta or Yetta, which might have been the origin of Ida. Her father had a sibling named Sarah Rasha. I have no knowledge of whether either of these women were alive or dead at the time of my mother’s birth.

Re: Name IDA #names

Lee Jaffe
 

My grandmother Edith Joroff Schwartz was born in Shchors in 1901 and immigrated to the US with her family in 1905.  In the 1910 census she is recorded as Ida.  In the 1920 census she is recorded as Yetta.  By 1930 she is calling herself Edith.  On her gravestone, her Jewish name is Ita (alef yud tet alef).
