Re: burials of suicides #general

Sheila Salo <ssalo@...>
 

A family member died by suicide. He was buried in the US in a
landsmannschaft section. The rules for burial of suicides were interpreted
in his case to mean that he should be buried outside the normal rows that
make up the section. The only space available was at the back of the
central pathway. Now, in this cemetery landsmannschaft sections are
entered through elaborate gateways erected by the members.That means that
his is the most prominent stone that you see as you approach the section!

Need ideas on London Research #general

Linda Altman <southernexotics@...>
 

I need some help/advice as to where to look for records. My g. grandfather
left Wysokie-Mazovieckie, Poland at about age 8 and went to live with a
family in London, England. He then immigrated to the US and married in NY
around 1908. Somewhere along those lines his name changed >from Benzion
SHABBAS to Barnett SHAPIRO. In London he apprenticed to be a baker. He was
in London >from about 1890-1902. I would imagine that he had to have
attended school somewhere, be on a census somewhere, or there should have
been some kind of record of him coming into the UK. He did speak fluent
Hebrew so we think that either he attended a Jewish school or was with a
Jewish family. Any ideas as to where I could search for records?

Looking for FLEISHMAN Family #general

mouallem <vze2drbc@...>
 

Dear Genners:

I am looking for Fleishman's >from Proskurow or Moscow, Russia who would
be related to Leon Fleishman. Leon was alive in 1939 and had a son
Adolph who emigrated to this country, both were musicians. I believe
that this family may have some information regarding my Lukashevsky
relatives who apparently lived in Moscow in 1939. Thank you in advance.

Sincerely,

name change Beth Zion Hosp #general

Suee20@...
 

Thank you all for your replies. I just found out that Beth Zion Hosp.
is now Maimonidies Hospital. It was just a name change.

Also. they told me that hospital records are just kept for 7 to 10
years. I was wondering if that is correct. I can find the cause of
death,>from the death certificate, but I suppose I can't find the Drs.
name who attended him, and his previous hospitalizations or illnesses.

"Back to Poland" -- part 2 #general

Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

In response to the query below, I received 34 responses (some of
them were posted to JewishGen also). In case others are curious
about the results: The consensus was that immigrants to the
USA did in fact return to Europe fairly often. The information
helps me to understand the activities of my ENGLANDER-STRAUSBERG
branch after they settled in Newark, New Jersey in 1893.

I have learned, >from what seems like a reliable source, that
someone on my family tree went "back to Europe" in about 1905.
(He was >from Czestochowa, Poland.)

This strikes me as very unlikely. Or is it??

Does anyone have confirmed cases of family members going back
to Poland??

Does anyone remember my grandparents Morris Klein and

Winaukee (for boys) and Camp Greggmere (for girls) in
New Hampshire in the 1930s? They were both New York
schoolteachers.

My father (Marcus Lourie Klein) attended Winaukee when
he was a young boy.
