Re: Dates, Hebrew/Civil --Twelve months in the Hebrew year #general

Actually, the Muslim calendar has 12, not 13, months. Unlike the
Jewish calendar, it never has a leap month to reconcile it with the solar

instance, cycles backwards through the solar year, making a complete cycle
every 30 years or so. It also means that a Muslim's 60th birthday, for
instance, would occur about 58 Gregorian (or Jewish) years after birth >>

Dick is totally right. My mind slipped a cog under those "13 months"
claims. I meant to say "is a lunar year." Calculating equivalent Moslem
and Gregorian (or Hebrew) dates requires some effort because the Moslem
year is approx 11 days shorter than the solar year.

My father's father was so adopted to avoid conscription, and we
cannot trace him to his family because of this.

Re: Mpls/St. Paul Research #general

Lilli A. Sprintz <spri0037@...>
 

I had promised some folks to do some research here in the Twin Cities
for some Minnesota ancestors.

It's working, just taking longer than I thought. And also, my computer
went on the blink several weeks ago and it's just getting fixed.

My apologies for not getting back to folks sooner than this.

I DID hit pay dirt. The first three persons I looked information up for
in city directories found several names being requested. Not all, but
this is very hopeful.

Please give me time to work on this over the semester. Even though I
said I would have only two weeks to do this, I'm really taking longer.
I will get back to folks as I have their information.

Talk to you all soon.

Seeking Names of All Jewish American Soldiers Killed in World War One #general

I. Nack <inack@...>
 

I am currently working on a project to document the names of all
Jewish-American soldiers who were killed in World War One. Approximately
3,000 men fall into this catagory.

If you know the name of any such soldiers I would appreciate receiving the
following information:

Last Name:
First Name:
Home State:
Regiment:
Date of Death:
Burial Location:
Other Relevant Details:

I hope to supplement this information with documents and other information
available >from a variety of archives. I am engaging in this effort for
purely personal reasons which is to ensure that the sacrifices made by
these men are not forgotten. Recently I visited the gravesite of my great
uncle who was one of the 3000 killed and came across a total of 14 other
graves of soldiers near his, all of whom died in WW1 and whose remains were
transferred back to the U.S. for burial in a private Jewish cemetery. A
number of the graves were vandalized and two graves in particular were in
terrible shape - the headstones were virtually unreadable and on the verge
of collapse. All indications are that at least some of these men and their
sacrifices have been all but forgotten - I would like to change this state
of affairs and thus I have decided to undertake this project. What I need
from you all are the names of these men to supplement what I already have
so that as complete a record as possible can be created.

Your assistance would be appreciated and when this project is complete, the
information will be made available for all to use.

Sincerely,
Irwin Nack

Help Locating town of Lubach or Lubir in Volhynia #general

barrychernick@...
 

I need a little help in locating a town. I have used the Shtetl Seeker
and the Shtetl Finder Gazetteer and have not come up with a good "fit".
Some relatives on their ship passenger list give their place of birth and
last residence as Lubach and/or Lubir, Wolin (I have assume Wolin is
Volhynia since that is where the rest of the family is >from ). These
relatives sailed >from Rotterdam in the 1912. Any ideas? TIA

SONENSCHEIN/1st Sedlcer Unter Verein #general

R Rose <singsong@...>
 

I am brand new at this, thanks for understanding, I'm sure to get better
at it.

Can anyone tell me what the First Sedlcer Unter Verein and whether there
are records available on this organization or other Sedlcers? We are
researching our grandfather, Max Sonshine.

We know that he came to the US in about 1903 >from Sedlce Poland (supposedly
near Gdansk/Gdanya) and died in an accident in Manhattan NY in May, 1931.
He and his wife are buried in Beth David cemetery in Nassau Co, NY. We
assume he immigrated to NY City. There is a notation about his working in
coal mines in Pennsylvania, and his death certificate indicates his
occupation as toolmaker. I know the original name was Sonenschein or
Sonnenschein.

The burial plot was identified by Beth David cemetery as part of 1st
Sedlcer Unter Verein. No dates of birth are given, as both records show
their age in this format: 46/0/0. His parents, Rose Cohen and Joseph
Sonshine are shown on the death certificate only as coming >from Poland.

I have a photo showing a family of at least 6 or 8 brothers but with no
notations. I have a few more fragments, one child might have been born in
Poland when Max would have been 17 or 18. This child called Frank might
have been named Isaac.

Any direction someone might share for pursuing this would be most
appreciated, the organization or burial society (?) should probably be my
first step. I am located in Southern California and could go to Laguna
Niguel for the Federal records if it makes sense.

Thank you!
