Baron Hirsch Cemetery, Golubs and Kopester Society #general

Steve Axelrath <saxelrat@...>
 

We're just determined that my wife's great grandmother and great
great grandmother (both named GOLUB) were buried at the Baron Hirsch
Cemetery on Staten Island, New York. They were interred within the
KOPESTER burial plot.
Does anyone know what KOPESTER refers to? Is it a town? A
province? A family name?

Re: Poland birth record #general

Stanley Diamond
 

The place Meryl is looking for is the small village "Strzylawki."
It is about 4 km west of Grybow on the road to Nowy Sacz. It is
not unusual for immigrants to refer to the nearby larger town in
conversation as well as records created in their new country.

He always said he was >from Grybow (map: 49 38 20 57) but his
niece, who is the only survivor of the Holocaust, now living in Israel,
has told me the town was actually Skrzyzsow (map:49 59 20 57).
The actual birth record lists the town as Strzylawka. The problem
I have is that there is no mention of this town in "Where Once
We Walked", and nothing in Shtetl Seeker. Any and all opinions
will be most welcome!

Judy, could the name you are searching be BLAICH >from Dvinsk? There is a
great repository [Dossier #102] on Blaich, who changed his name to AMIR in
Israel, at the Archives of Latvians and Estonians in Israel at Shefayim.

As far as I know the name in Lithuania/Latvia originally was BLECHER or
BLACHER (changed to BLACKER in the US & Canada.) Maybe someone
shortened it to BLAICH & I will certainly keep your info in my files.

Anyone recall the FTM offer? #general

MBernet@...
 

Back in mid-may, FTM offered a discount price on its new v. 7.5, and on
updates.

I ordered both an update (for a colleague in Germany who had asked for it)
and a new cpy for myself (I want to upgrade out of my inadequate "other
brand").

The update arrived; the full version wasn't delivered while I was away
"genning" in Europe. I want to contact them with a follow-up. Can someone
please send me the url or e-mail address, better yet the original message
from FTM?
Thanks

A recent post asked about the name SILBERNAGEL. There was a family
of that name or one similar to that in Pine Bluff, AR. The patriarch of
the family of the family, Philip died a couple of years ago. I'm not
sure how much family remains. There is a synagogue in Pine Bluff that
is served by a student rabbi, Temple Anshe Emeth , (870)534-3853. Good
luck.
