Re: obtaining death certificate #lithuania

Gary,
Try italiangen.org. They list death records in New York City up to 1948.
Irene Galvin

I am researching my grandfather's family who came >from Lithuania. The
professional genealogist I am working with recently suggested I try to
obtain the death certificates of his step-siblings in order to try to
link all the family members together. However, the only information I
know about one of his step-brothers is the year and place of death(New
York State,1937). How does one obtain a death certificate of a
relative with such little information?

Any information provided will be greatly appreciated.

Searching for Nutig #galicia

Sandra Nutig
 

Hello,

I hope someone can give me an idea how to find any information about
my father-in-law's family. His name was Sol Nutig. However, the name
evolved over time, I assume because the census taker spelled the name
the way it sounded to them. The following are Sol's parents.

1905 census - Esok and Fannie NOOTICK
1910 census - Isaac and Fannie NEWTIK
Immigrated in 1901 and 1902 >from Galicia or Austria depending on each
census.
1920 census - Isaac and Lina NUTIG
1930 census - Isaac and Lena NUTAK------Lena is buried with the name
NUTIK.
Fannie died sometime between 1910 & 1930.

I have not be able find the Nutig family entering the country. I have tried
all the Beider-Morse and Daitch-Mokotoff names. I also cannot find any
record of death for Isaac or Fannie.

Gesher Galicia Program: Sunday, May 20 - 11AM - "Exploring the Archives" at the Center for Jewish History in New York #galicia

Pamela Weisberger
 

Program reminder for those of you in the greater New York and New
England area:

Gesher Galicia is holding its spring regional meeting this Sunday:

Sunday, May 20, 2012 11:00 AM (doors open at 10:30AM)

Center for Jewish History ~ Main Auditorium
15 West 16th St. (just west of Fifth Ave.)
New York, NY 10011

"Exploring the Archives: Unique & Unusual Resources in Galician Research"
and a sneak preview of the documentary "The Cave"

Speakers:
Pamela Weisberger, GG President/Research Coordinator
Chris Nicola, Spelunker and Author of "The Cave"

Even in this digital genealogical age, not everything is online. Learn about
the exciting -- and unusual -- Jewish genealogical resources available in
archives and libraries in Vienna, Ternopil, Lviv and Krakow. >from
documents dating >from the late 1700s through the interwar years, we'll
cover voter and school lists, the Lviv family registration books dating back
to the 18th century, 1930 Jewish taxpayer lists, Lvov (Lemberg) and
Jagellonian University student records and magnate landowner files that
contain items like List of Jewish Tavern Owners in 1790.

You'll view examples >from the Jewish Galician holdings in the Vienna State
Archives including kahal records and court cases -- many with actual
signatures of your ancestors -- and province-wide inventories, such as
listings for rabbis and cantors >from every shtetl that had a Jewish
congregation and Jewish schoolteachers assigned to the German-Jewish
schools in 1788 -- at the exact time Jews were required to adopt family
surnames.

An update on the All Galicia Database and Gesher Galicia's cadastral
map program will also be provided along with a video tour of the Brody
(Ukraine) Cemetery and a step-by-step insider's look at how to conduct
research at all of these archives. Spelunker and author, Chris Nicola, will
also offer a short update on the film (based on his book) "The Cave"
detailing the story of the longest ever-recorded uninterrupted
underground survival in human history by 38 Galician Jews outside of the
Korolowka/Borshiv region of Ukraine in the Priests Grotto cave during
World War II, and the return of these Holocaust survivors to the town more
than 60 years later.

Even if you are not doing specifically Galician research, cadastral maps are
also held in German, Polish, Austrian, Czech and Hungarian archives, as are
many of the more "unusual" documents we'll be covering. You might learn
something new that will be applicable to your own research.

No reservations needed and free of charge. The JGSNY program follows at
2:00 PM. More info at: www.JGSNY.org.

Is Nisko Izbika? #austria-czech

Robert Fraser
 

Hi guys -

I have information that a relative was deported in 1939 (I
don't know where from, but probably Moravia) to Izbika in
Poland. I also have information that he was deported in 1939
to a place described as Nisko/San to build a camp for other
Jewish transports.

Are these places the same? If not, where is or was
Nisko/San?

Hi guys -

I have information that a relative was deported in 1939 (I
don't know where from, but probably Moravia) to Izbika in
Poland. I also have information that he was deported in 1939
to a place described as Nisko/San to build a camp for other
Jewish transports.

Are these places the same? If not, where is or was
Nisko/San?
