Northern NJ Cemeteries -- Part II #general

A. E. Jordan
 

Thanks to everyone who replied to my question about a cemetery in
Richfield Park, NJ. Most everyone suggested Riverside in Rochelle Park.

I spoke to Riverside as well as Mt. Moriah and neither has the gave for
Abraham KORENSTEIN. All I know is that Korenstein lived in Hoboken and
was a pillar of the Jewish community. Hence I doubt he was not buried in
a Jewish cemetery.

I am checking the listing for other local cemeteries, but anyone have any
ideas on what was the most likely cemetery for a Hoboken person who died
in about 1950?

Thanks.

Dear Howie and group: For what it is worth, in 1928 my (Hungarian)
grandmother, who lived in Manhattan and in Brooklyn, but never New Jersey,
bought a sizeable plot >from the Lakewood Cemetery Association in the
Riverside Cemetery, Rochelle Park, Saddle River, Bergen County, NJ. She was
buried there in 1946. ( have no record that the other plots were ever
used.) This isn't Newark, but maybe it is useful to someone....

Continuing the thread of Jewish cemeteries in northern New Jersey, I have
been told that two possible relatives of mine were buried in the
Hungarian Cemetery in Newark. However, upon calling the telephone
company, they indicate that there is no such listing in Newark or in the
surrounding area.

Hello! I probably didn't give enough information about using this site.
All you do is click on "browse the directory". Then, in alphabetical order,
you can click on a letter of the alphabet for a name you are interested
in. It only takes a few seconds. Once that person's name came up, it does
say "e-mail me", and all you have to do is click on that and send a
letter. It doesn't give the actual e-mail address, for privacy reasons.

Good luck!

Sincerely,
Denise Azbill

I've noticed a great deal of mail relating to Jewish cemeteries in New
Jersey, I am searching a great great uncle who died around 1/1/1900 and is
buried somewhere in New Jersey. If any happens to come across a tomb
stone of Yacov (Jacob) Tillman please photograph it and get it to me.
He's been a very important stumbling block or mayne best to describe as
a stone wall I'll pick up the costs.

Flo,

Harvard also has a copy!!! The year 1904 would have
cost me $104.00

Mike

MODERATOR'S NOTE: Is there someone in the Harvard area who can go through the reels there & describes their contents?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Please visit the Ukraine SIG web site
<http://www.jewishgen.org/ukraine/>
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We need people to look through the
available microfilm, &
create an index that describes the contents of each
reel... Once we have a
descriptive reference point,
we'll have a better idea about how to proceed. (Let me
know, too, if one of
you can act as team leader to coordinate this effort.)

If anyone else can give us some ideas on how we can
undertake this project
more efficiently & less expensively, I'd be very
grateful for your
suggestions. It's alright to share your answers with
our mailing list, & I
look forward to any & all helpful thoughts about the
project.
