Pictures of tombstones in Chevra Kadisha, Johannesburg #southafrica

Assaf Urieli <assaf@...>
 

Hi all,

I recently found a record for my grandfather, Uriel ABRAMOV, on the
JOWBR database http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/cemetery/
He was buried in the Chevra Kadisha cemetary in Johannesburg.
I was wondering if the person who compiled the information for the
Chevra Kadisha cemetary also took digital photos of the tombstones, and
if so, how to go about getting a copy.

Best regards,

Lipsa Fleishman #southafrica

Hello all,

I am looking for information concerning my great-grandmother. Unfortunately
we have almost no details.

Her name was Lipsa Fleishman. She was born in 1864, probably in Lithuanian
Russia, and died in Johannesburg in South Africa in 1934. She married Aaron
Lederman of Shadova (Seduva) in Lithuania. They have six children, five
born in Shadova, before their emigration to South Africa around 1905, and
the last in South Africa.

Lipsa’s fathers name was Issac. We do not know in which town she was born.
I have failed to trace a Fleishman family in Shadova till now.

If any of this rings a bell please contact me privately.

I have received a few very interesting enquiries
about the Holocaust Centre in Cape Town, since
my report on the Memorial Siren in Cape Town
on Holocaust Day, i.e. Yom Hashoa.

It would be a good idea for SIG members
to note the website address of the Holocaust
Museum in Cape Town as follows.

Listing of Doctors in Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia in February 1929 #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Erika Kalkofen-Frahne >from Dortmund, Germany and I have worked on
this posting together. Erika located a list of doctors and dentists
in 1929 in a 130-page document entitled: "Mitteilungen des Heilfonds
der offentlichen Bediensteten" - Verzeichnis der Vertragsarzte",

It encompasses Bohemia, Moravia, Silesia [only Freistadt, Freiwaldau,
Friedek, Hultschin, Jaegerndorf Cesky Tesin, Troppau and Wagstadt],
Slovakia, and Carpathian-Ruthenia. Most of the towns and villages
are listed by their Czech names - in some instances the equivalent
German name is given.

Many of the names are obviously Jewish: i.e. Leo POLLAK,
Jungmannova 22, 8-9,14-6, tel. 324-01 Praha II.

Nove Mesto,...FANTL, Julius, Hora Kutna, Radnicka ul. 635, 14-15, tel. 17...

ARNSTEIN, Ignac, Ceska Trebova 23,8-9,14-15,tel. 69 in Landskron (Lanskroun)

FLEISCHMANN, Oskar, Komenskeho 15,9-12,14-16.....

The Doctors on this list appear to have worked for health insurance systems.
Hospital doctors are not listed.

Erika will be happy to look up doctors for you in any location in this area.

Celia Male [U.K.]

Footnote: Has anyone any information on Karl LICHTENTAL (a friend of
Erika's grandfather's family in 1936?) in the area between Dresden and
Prague?

JG: Re: Census Undercounts - an enumerator's point of view #general

In the Discussion Group posting for May 2nd, Nick Landau wrote:
A household survey was proposed to supplement the Census.

It notes that "The original plan for the 2000 census called for the use of
scientific estimation only as a supplemental means of finding those people
who do not respond to traditional census methods."

I think that >from this it is apparent that at the highest level of the US
Government there was a concern about the inaccuracies and lack of coverage
of the Census in specific groups (particularly the disabled).
I was in fact employed by the US Census Bureau as a "follow up"
enumerator, to visit the households where census forms had not been
mailed back.

I live in what is called the San Francisco Bay Area, a conurbation of
some 6.5 million people. I specifically live in Berkeley and, like
almost everyone in the team I was allocated to work in the city of
Oakland, which is well-known for its racial diversity. Principally,
we dealt with African-Americans and Asian neighborhoods. (There were
several teams working there.)

We were given batches of 40 blank forms, both short and long forms.
Forms were "pre-addressed" as to who got the long form. We had to
visit the addresses every time of day until we were successful, ie.,
morning, afternoon and evening.

One problem not highlighted in this thread about modern censuses, is
the problem one has communicating with individuals and/or families
who speak no English. It was quite strange going into a crowded Asian
apartment on several evenings, with parents, grandparents and young
children, probably very recently arrived in America, none of whom
could speak English. I had to try and fill out perhaps 100 questions
(if they got the long form). Somehow, I managed to get them to
understand and get the appropriate answers.

However, there was always a household which wouldn't want to be
involved and so I would report this and it would "move up the chain
of command" for someone else to try.

Finally, as hard as the Bureau tried, not every address was a
residential one. In some cases, a home had been turned into an
office, in other instances, it wasn't obvious that the address was a
store premises.

This is just a taste of how I spent three months during the summer of 2000.
