[US] [CT][ SB 414 Changes Immediate Access to Genealogists Access To Records #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

IAJGS only learned about this legislation late today- March 13. While the
hearing tomorrow is before the Public Health Committee of the Connecticut
General Assembly (CGA) -if it passes it still has to be voted on the floor
and if passed be sent to the Senate for it to be heard and voted upon before
going to the governor.

Current Connecticut statute states that genealogists have access to all
vital records in the custody of any registrar of vital statistics, including
certificates, ledgers, record books, card files, indexes and database
printouts, "during all normal business hours."
SB 414 which will be heard Friday March 14 at 10:30 a.m. at the Legislative
Office Building in Hartford. SB 414 may be read at:
http://www.cga.ct.gov/2014/TOB/S/2014SB-00414-R00-SB.htm

The proposed legislation would delete "during all normal business hours" and
would instead leave access at the registrar's discretion by adding this
sentence:

"A registrar of vital statistics may grant a genealogist immediate access to
such records or may require a genealogist to schedule an appointment to
access such records, at the registrar's discretion. A registrar requiring an
appointment for access to such records shall schedule such appointment as
soon as reasonably practicable."

Genealogists that belong to a Connecticut genealogy society have been
privileged to have immediate access to vital records for a number of years.
If enacted, this provision would only apply to genealogists no others who
request records. The proposed provision would leave it to the local
registrar as to when a genealogist may come to the office and access the
records, whereas since 1996 there has been a provision regarding "normal
business hours" access and this would be deleted. If enacted, genealogists
would be required to contact a town hall first because they would not know
whether an appointment is necessary before research cane be done. There is
no requirement that an appointment would be made within a specific period of
time >from the request. The bill was introduced at the request of the
Department of Public Health.

Paul BERMANN from Montpellier #france

Bert de Jong <bdejong67@...>
 

Dear French-Sig members,

I have been researching the BERMANN family >from Germany for 14 years,
and now am searching for Paul/Lucien BERMANN, born August 20, 1898
in Antwerp, Belgium.

I have a statement >from him given to the arrondisement territorial
Geneve >from July 18, 1945 in which he tells that he lived at that
time in Camp de travail de Tramelan, and his previous
address was: Paris , 59 Boulevard Beau-Sejour, 16eme.
He further tells that he had lived in Holland, but in 1926 moved to
Paris, France.

In June 1940 he left Paris and went to Montpellier, in 1942 he fled to
Switzerland. In a document >from the Swiss police dated September 15, 1942
it shows that he illegally crossed the border to Switzerland on
September 5, 1942. And that he is in Camp Varembe at this time, but should
be brought to the police office in Geneve, Franc. Another document shows
that he was in Camp Tramelan in October 1, 1943. He was in Sierre,
Wallis, Switzerland in November 1942, Tramelan May 27, 1943
A.I. Siders in May 1943.

Another document shows that he is arrested at Bardonnex on July 18,1945
illegally passing the border, and was brought to Camp de Matten in
Interlaken, Belgium. On July 28, 1945 he received a laissez-passer >from
Bern, Switzerland. He should travel to Camp de Charmilles, Geneve,
France on August 2, 1945. I found him also on a voters list >from the 60s
as he lived in Montpellier, but after that I can't find a trace.

Does anybody know more about Paul/Lucien BERMANN?

Universities and Czech Jews in the early 20th Century #austria-czech

rfc974@...
 

Hi folks:

If you were Jewish and wanted to become an engineer, medical doctor or
attorney, what university would you attend in Bohemia/Czechoslovakia
in the early 1900s?

I ask because a large number of my cousins were indeed, engineers,
doctors or attorneys, and I am have difficulty tracking down where
they got their degrees.

Thanks!

Craig

Austria-Czech SIG #Austria-Czech Universities and Czech Jews in the early 20th Century #austria-czech

rfc974@...
 

Hi folks:

If you were Jewish and wanted to become an engineer, medical doctor or
attorney, what university would you attend in Bohemia/Czechoslovakia
in the early 1900s?

I ask because a large number of my cousins were indeed, engineers,
doctors or attorneys, and I am have difficulty tracking down where
they got their degrees.

Thanks!

Craig

surnames: Pijursky and Fainberg from Taurage #lithuania

Nicole Martin <nmartin81@...>
 

Hi there. I recently found a whole new branch on my family tree that I had
been looking for for the better part of a decade. This was wonderful and
now I have NEW names to look into and hopefully even more family to
discover.

My family was in Taurage, Lithuania. The great-great grandparents were
born in the 1850s and were Morris (Moshe) and Ida (Chaya) Abram. Most
of their children went to the US in the early 20th century and changed
their surname to Horwitz.

I have found 2 daughters who stayed in Lithuania. There was:

Ita Abrams who married and Avraham Pijursky (I have seen numerous
spellings) I found a page of testimony at Yad Vashem for Ita and for
several of her children and grandchildren. 2 children survived: Sonja
and Isaac. Both of them were liberated >from Kaufering in 1945 and I
believe relocated to Israel.

Rive Abram married Leiba Fainberg. They had several children whose fates
I am unsure of. The names are Jacob, Isaac, Peisackh, Mottel and Base.
(There may have been more) The documents I have found seem to support
Rive being a sister of my great grandfather but it could be an error as
this is a brand new person no one had heard of prior.

Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,
Nicole Horwitz-Martin
