NYC Divorce Record, 1900 - 1905 #general

Jerry Schneider
 

Does anyone have any experience with researching and obtaining Divorce Decrees in
New York City? For what years are records available?

Specifically, I am looking for a Divorce Record that would have been filed in
Manhattan sometime between 1900 - 1905.

The "no longer" happy couple were

Jacob Eimas; and Sarah "Sally" Eimas, maiden name Federman Jacob & Sarah were
married about 1885. They appeared together in the 1900 U.S. Federal Census,
residing at 212 East 8th Street, Manhattan. Sarah remarried David Charles Levy in
Cleveland July 25, 1905; Jacob remarried a Pauline Zwerb in Manhattan, May 23,
1911, while living at 685 2nd Avenue.

Any suggestions on locating this divorce record will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you. I look forward to hearing >from you soon.

Dear Genners,
If you have fairly recently hired someone to translate documents in Belarus,
I would be grateful to know what the acceptable and fair hourly rate is.

Please respond privately, and thank you in advance for your help.

Yizkor Book Project, July 2012 #belarus

Shalom,

I would like to hope that those of you who attended the IAJGS International
Conference returned home with their genealogy "tank" refilled and eager to
become involved in one of the JewishGen projects - for instance, let's say
the Yizkor Book Project <g> I'm quite sure that those of you who attended
the Yizkor Book Birds of a Feather meeting under the leadership of Jan
Meisels Allen are particularly inspired by her to become involved in our
project. Anyway, if you were or weren't at the conference and would like to
take some part in the Yizkor Book Project in some fashion - translating,
transliterating, coordinating, editing or... I would certainly like hear
from you and discuss what part of the project calls out to you.
Once again, I am pleased to let you know that a further book is now
completely online - "Rabka Four - Instruments of Genocide and Grand Larceny"
that was written by Robin O'Neil, who researches the Holocaust with insights
and skills he acquired in his years as police major crimes investigator at
Scotland Yard. Robin has generously donated a number of his manuscripts and
for those who are yet to be familiar with this unique research, I'm sure you
will find them a real eye-opener.

We are very fortunate to have a long-standing arrangement with Yad Vashem,
Jerusalem, which enables us to receive Excel files of necrologies extracted
from a wide range of Yizkor books. On our side, a team of conscientious
volunteers transliterate these lists into English and allow us to make them
available to the general public. This month, in particular, we've added in a
number of necrologies which come >from books that are not widely available
and are particularly important for researchers and, at the same time, allow
us to immortalize the names of our people who met their death during the
Holocaust. Later on, yet another team of conscientious volunteers led by Max
Heffler, convert these lists into a format which can be uploaded to our
necrology database and the help of all these volunteers is very much
appreciated and allow us this wide range of research options.

Now to facts and figures - as far as the July figures go, during this last
month we have added these 5 new projects:

Long shot: Evans/Evens/Evian in Argentina #latinamerica

Michelle Essers
 

Hi

I am researching Evans/Evian/Evens family >from Lithuania.

I have been told some of the Evans family settled in Argentina (or
perhaps Chile). Some of this family came to Israel - Ramat HaSharon
then returned to Argentina.

My grandfather was Samuel/Shmuel Evens born c1897
His brothers were:
Yossel/Joseph Evans born c 1881/1887
Yockel Evans born c1874

The above all came to South Africa.

Their sister Hinda Ruchal/Rose Gulin emigrated to America with her
husband and family
Her eldest son, Nissan, went to Argentina.

Thanks

Michelle

number of necrologies which come >from books that are not widely available
and are particularly important for researchers and, at the same time, allow
us to immortalize the names of our people who met their death during the
Holocaust. Later on, yet another team of conscientious volunteers led by Max
Heffler, convert these lists into a format which can be uploaded to our
necrology database and the help of all these volunteers is very much
appreciated and allow us this wide range of research options.

Thanks to Jeanette Rosenberg and other SIGS for providing summaries of Conference business meetings. #general

Marlene Dobrin
 

I thanked Jeannette Rosenberg for her report of the GerSIG Business Meeting at the
IAJGS Conference in Paris and to the other SIGS that have provided reports. I thank
you.

I would like to ask if all SIGS could follow the lead of Jeannette and include
summaries of their business meetings at the conferences each year. I'm not looking
for total details but summaries would be very nice for those of us who cannot
attend the conferences.

Thank you,

Re: Donating materials to archives or historical societies #general

Deborah Dworski
 

Isabel Cymerman inquired about issues to consider prior to donating genealogical
materials to archives or other institutions. Based on very limited experience, I
highly recommend obtaining an agreement, in writing, which would preserve your
extended family's access to anything you donate. Sometimes organizations agree to
accept genealogical collections, but they do not always make the content publicly
accessible. Also, with regard to photographs, I suggest that similar arrangements
be made, with the added stipulation that the organization provide a scanned version
of the image, free of charge, to any current or future family member who makes such
a request.

The above recommendations were inspired by an unpleasant personal experience in
which a local historical society demanded $25 for a single image of my gg-uncle in
front of his general store. The original photograph had been donated by my cousin
several years prior, with the noble intention of preserving the image for
posterity. He did not anticipate that the organization would subsequently charge
fees for sharing an electronic version of the picture within the family circle.

Military service records (UK) #general

Roy Star
 

I am being told that service records in UK for WWII are not complete for searching
on line, and prior to WWI it is 'hit & miss' in finding UK records on line.
1904-1914
1/ I have found full records for 2 different enlistments by Charles STAR who was
first in the Territorial Army, Inns of Court Regiment (1904-1908) and then in
19th(County of London)Battn.The London Regiment (1910-1914). For some reason, in
the Military listings I cannot find these battalion names.
2/ His brother Rubin STARSOLLA served in the 8th Mx.Lab.Coy No.93384. Private.
(1910?) I cannot find any documentation whatsover, or this regiment in the listings
What is Mx short for? I presume Lab.Coy means Labour Company!

1939
1/ Isaac FARBER served in Monte Casino in the 8th Army (1939). Again I cannot find
any documentation or battalion listing.
2/ His brother Morris FARBER was possibly in The Royal Fusiliers, but again I
cannot find details (1939).
3/ Another brother Denis (Danny) FARBER was in the Air Force in India (1939) but no
records can be found.

I have tried many different Military records that are on line but to no avail.
Any suggestions?
