Origin of the name Itie #general

rosecitykitty@...
 

Can anyone tell me what the origin of the given name Itie is? Is it related to
the Hebrew name Itai? And any suggestions about what name might have been
adopted by this person after arriving in the USA? He was originally >from Iasi,
Romania and I am trying to determine if he could be my grandfather's younger
brother.I know that he had a brother named Abe and rumor has it that there was
another brother also but no one remembers his name. I did try the JewishGen
name finder but came up with no results. Thanks for your help.

Hello everyone,

I just wanted to let you know that Odessa Archives posted on their site

Natan Nate #general

Dan <doren@...>
 

A recent ViewMate posting of a tombstone with the name of "Natan Nate"
(Hebrew letters nun-taf-nunsofit nun-tet-ayin) raises the question for me
of the name nun-tet-ayin.

Is this typically meant as a nickname "Nate", an alternative to the formal name
of Natan or Nathan.
Or is this properly meant as a second given name, "Nateh", perhaps?

This combination appears on a tombstone as well for a different relative in my
extended family.

Requests for Research Assistance in Philadelphia #general

Jerry Schneider
 

I would like to thank the JewishGen'ner community for stepping up to
help me with my brick wall. I have received much advice, many
suggestions and offers of assistance.

Because of this assistance, I have been able to search all available
indexes for Philadelphia vital records, Unfortunately, there are no
records to support any of the numerous references by my ancestors
that they were born in, married or died in Philadelphia. So, the
Philadelphia city and county search is being abandoned.

Because there were so many references by so many relatives, I am
assuming that these events may have occurred in one of the adjacent
Pennsylvania Counties. Although I live in Burke, VA, a small town
known only by us locals, I often say I am >from "Washington, DC", a
well-known city just up the road a piece. I am hoping that the
references to "Philadelphia" were similar to my own example.

So, I am now trying to put together a plan for researching the
adjacent counties. Is there a state-wide index for vital record
events available at the PA State Archives? This may help me find the
county or city where this family was located.

However, because several of the events occurred before 1900, there's
a great chance that the records don't exist or, if they do, only at
the Clerk's Office for the particular city or town.

Any suggestions or offers of assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again.

Question: JOWBR- Bayside Cemetery, Ozone Park NY- Conflicting Info #general

Hello,
I was excited to find my great-grandmother listed on JOWBR.
from JOWBR:
Rebecca SIMON died 3 Dec 1894, age 46, Anshe Polen # 1 Gate 74
death cert # 33302, funeral director Sam Rothscild.

I have had her death cert for 15 - 20 years & never found her grave.
Rebecca SIMON died 3 Dec 1894, age 46, buried Union Field Cemetery
death cert # 38517, undertaker Max Solinsky 73 Suffolk St. Has her correct
address & KAPLAN parent's names.
We went to Union Field Cemetery several years ago & spent a few hours with
their helpful staff.
She is not buried there or in any of the adjacent cemeteries. She was born
in Suwalki.
Her husband Barnet SIMON was born in Lubowo & was buried in True Friends
section of Acacia Cemetery in 1925.

I checked Steve Morse NYC death index, no Dec 1894 SIMON death with cert #
33302.
Any suggestions? Is it possible she has a tombstone at Bayside? Any info on
Anshe Polen?

Thanks,

Searching for documents - Patent Applications #general

Jan Fine
 

Dear Fellow genealogists,

I recently had a conversation with a newly found cousin who related a
story to me about two brothers in our family who never managed to get
along with one another. When the brothers came of age and joined the
family business their rivalry continued. Predictably, one of the brothers
became a "black sheep" and went his own way and was the reason why this
newly found cousin was previously unknown to me.

One of the reasons that this brother went off in his own direction was a
dispute over one or several patents. I mention this scenario because
the conversation that it sparked between us led me to a question about
a resource that I had never considered - patent applications.

Can anyone shed light on patent applications - specifically, are there
searchable records, how far back do these records go, and how long is
the period under which a patent is protected? Does it make sense to
anyone else that a patent application might actually be beneficial to
someone doing family genealogy?

Please respond publicly as I think the answers to this question might
be of interest to others.

Thank you,

Information needed on Sarah KRAUSE from Boston #general

Henry Krinkle <krinkle948@...>
 

My grandmother's last name was a variation of the name KRAUSE. I don't know
how it was spelled hence I am unable to find any information on her family.

She was married to Wilfred RODMAN also of Boston in the thirties. I would
be curious to know what her parents name was so I might then purchase their
naturalization papers and find out what country this branch came from. My
father told me he thought they came >from Lithuania or Latvia. Can someone
help me?

BURGARD family from Sevastopol, Ukraine #general

krothstein
 

Hello,
My maternal great-grandfather's family was the BURGARDs. They lived >from the
about 1860 in Sevastopol. They were originally >from Rejowiec, Poland.

Most of the family left but 1 brother Valdodia (Vladamir) remained. He was
married to Vera Golubovskaya and they had an adopted son by the name of Mark.
Mark escaped at the beginning of WWII to Omsk, Siberia. I understand that he was
married and had 2 sons. Possibly one son came to the US.

BURGARD is not a Slavic name but I am not having any luck and not real sure
where to look for any BURGARDs that might have remained in Russia. Does
anyone have any ideas or thoughts where to really begin?? I would be very
appreciative. There are a couple of Ukrainian forums but they are difficult
to maneuver around.

Thank You for your ideas
