Re: Burial Society Washington Cemetery - Bnai Menasse or Menasche #usa

I am going to make a guess here.  I think Bnai Menashe may have been more of a family circle than a shtetl based society.

The fact that they merged with Nachlas Zwie Anshe Ungarn may or may not indicate a Hungarian connection.  It could be that people from each society knew each other, and both societies needed a merger to stay afloat.

Have you looked at other sources to pin down exactly where this family came from, i.e. naturalization records, passenger manifests, WW1 or WW11 draft cards, U.S. vital records?
