Thanks to all who responded to my request. The person who told me it
was Norwood Cemetery prob. mispronounced it or recalled it wrong; and
the telephone operator just didn't know.

Re: Elllis Island #general

Someone suggested searching on anything at all, then going in and editing
the information to what you want. If you edit the date and the ship, leave
the first name blank and the last name S% (or any letter), you will find
someone on that ship. Then just look at the manifest!

It is simple to edit once you get a search the first time-you just have to
search something, no matter what, to edit.

By the way, don't enter ethnicity-my Russians are: Russians, Poles,
Lithuanians, or Hebrews!

Exhibit: Tombstones of Jewish Immigrants #general

Cherie lifton <clifton208@...>
 

Hi everyone....

Not exactly geneology - but then again - it may be.

Today's NY Times (B.30):

Photography Review "Hearbreak and Faded Joy Amid
Timeworn Tombstones of Jewish Immigrants" discusses the
photographic images of "the enamels" John Yang took in
Mount Zion Cemetery, an Orthodox cemetery in Maspeth,
Queens.

The exhibit, "Immortal Portraits" is at the John
Stevenson Gallery, 338 West 23 Street,
Chelsea, 212/352-0070 through May l5th.

Makes me wish I were back in New York.

DANIELOVICH #general

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Folks,

This is one of my vaguest queries: In my old notes on my research for the
ORLEN/ORLIN/ORLEAN/ORLENE family of Lithuania & Holyoke, Massachusetts, I
find the following entry, written in 1979:

"Cousins, Mrs. DANIELOVICH and her two sons, used to visit Holyoke
from Hartford, Connecticut in the 1930's or 1940's."
Is this a familiar name to anyone who has lived in Hartford?

Best, Steve Orlen

Nyirgebe #general

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

As far as I know, the word Nyir in Hungarian doesn't mean "great". It means
to clip, to fleece, to shear or to trim. For example, 'haj nyiratas"
means "hair cutting". As for a place called Nyirgebe, it's more
likely that the person looking for it (I missed the original thread)
is Nyirgelse, which today is called Gelse, located in the Zala
municipality.

Re: Jaeger #general

Diane Jacobs <kingart@...>
 

Dear Israel,
i don't know if this will help in your search but I also have an unknown
Jaeger on my family tree. I have a Julius Jaeger listed as boarder
with my greatuncle Marucie (Moses Schumkav) Singman in the 1920
US Census. Also there was his Morris' second wife Celia and they
were residing at 2223 New Haven AVenue, Queens, NY.
Interestingly, Celia's madien name was Englander but records show
she could be >from Crochoa? Austia? or Poland.

Hope this helps.
Diane Jacobs

We have a family of four entering the US >from Galicia, who appear in
the Ellis Island database as "Hebrew Jaeger." No, this is not listed
under the profession, and would be irrelvant as such for the two year
old.

Anyone know what this means?

Re: Norwood Cemetery-new name Queens #general

Are you sure it's not Knollwood (Park) Cemetery and not Norwood.
Knollwood is on the border as you described in an area that is full of
cemeteries.

Ellis Island and Canada #general

Rebeccadan <rebeccadan@...>
 

Searching the Ellis Island database for Weinbrens, I came upon David
Weinbren, who I had previously thought ended up in South Africa.

Interestingly, his sheet of the manifest was headed 'In Transit' and all
the passengers on that sheet were not destined for the USA. David was
heading for Winnipeg in Canada. I'm not sure I've deciphered it properly,
but he seems to have been heading for Lipton.

Unlike other relatives who were travelling with just a few dollars (or
poor old Jossel who arrived with nothing and senile dementia - destination
'medical care') David had paid his own passage and still had $1400 in his
pocket.

This seems to indicate that the Ellis Island database may also be of
interest to people in Canada.

Regards
Rebecca Weinbren


VM551 Heb/Eng London Marriage App Rosenberg/Josephs - Help Please! #general

Jennifer Broughton <jennifer.broughton@...>
 

Dear all

VM551 shows the Beth Din marriage application for my ggf and ggm.

My ggf came to England when he was about 20 and sadly died when he was 41
yoa. My ggm always said that he came >from Kiev. We are pretty sure that
he came >from Russia because of census information. The text "native of"
seems to say Sadowa - I found some places named this through Jewish Gen -
but not v.near Kiev. I think that machinist was his profession.

The brother/ or brothers are Saul, or Shmuel and Joseph or Yoel. It seems
to say that they reside in "Sarden" - someone suggested that this could be
Sardenia. I expected somewhere in Russia. I would like more information
on this if possible. Also for the brothers it seems to say "They will not
be" - then a word composed of Ayin, He, Chet (could be an acronym?) I
would like to know what this means.

Also for my ggm it says native of "Lo...? Tailor" Tailor was her father's
profession and we know that they came >from Poland but don't know exactly
where >from (my ggm came to this country about 1-2 yoa).

Any additional information would be welcomed. Please reply direct to me.
