Re: "National Roof Garden, was it a theater?" #general

abe simon <abe_simon@...>
 

The name Roof Garden rings a different bell for me. When I was in grammar
school I remember going to a "summer camp" in the city of Buffalo on the top
of the old Jewish Community Center building in the late 30's or early 40's.
It was called the Roof Garden, where we poorer children could attend and get
"nourishing foods" and participate in Jewish activities.

Can anyone tell me where I can send to obtain records >from Dubno,
Gubernia Volynia? I am searching for information about my
grandparents. Their names were Shye EISENGART and Perl BUNIS, and
they were born there (in 1871 and 1874 respectively) and married
there (in 1894), and emigrated to the US in 1913 and 1921.)

I would like to find out something about their parents and siblings.

Thank you.

Re: A Mystery Found in London Synagogue Marriage Registers #general

abe simon <abe_simon@...>
 

I read the posting on the Jgen Discussion group regarding the "mystery of
names" on the marriage records.
My first wife Thelma, who converted to Judaism for our marriage was listed
as Sarah bat Avraham on our Ketuba (Hebrew wedding cert). This is a common
choice for conversions, so possibly your relative was given the same as a
conversion. Sarah bat Avraham Avinu translates to Sarah daughter of Abraham
our father.

As a proud Welshman, I take great exception to Peter's statement that Wales

UK postcodes are given to every building in the UK that receives post.
Larger commercial companies have unique postcodes. Most apartment blocks are
allocated a unique postcode, thus all 33 apartments in my block share the
same postcode. Private houses and rows of small shops are divided into
groups of about 20. The first part of the postcode narrows down the location
to a very specific place, be it in a small town or part of a larger one.
The second part is random although adjacent blocks sometimes have similar
codes. Thus a letter sent to a name and postcode in the UK is almost always
deliverable by the Royal Mail. Royal Mail take great delight in delivering
strangely addressed envelopes. One to "that fat man on the Channel 4 quiz
show" easily found its way to the right address in Leeds! Last year I wrote
to several addresses in Canada using name, city and zip code and all found
their marks (genealogical research) very easily.

Re: Jewish Memorial Hospital #general

s_wiener@...
 

Hi and Happy New Year to my fellow genners,

I read with interest the responses regarding the
dispostion of the Jewish Memorial Hospital [of New
York]. My father-in-law's first cousin died at that
hospital, [a mere child of 7 and 1/2] on September 16,
1928. Because the death certificate of this child
specified the hospital as Jewish Memorial Hospital, 10
years before Ralph's response, I felt that more
research should be done.

Checking on the internet, I found that Jewish Memorial
Hospital came into existance in April of 1905 as a
nonsectarian facility called the Philantropin
Hospital, located in the Harlem section of New York at
Fifth Avenue and 128th Street. Subsequent locations
for the hospital were Inwood Hill Park, Dyckman Street
and River Road and finally, Broadway and 196th Street
where it changed hands and was renamed Jewish Memorial
Hospital. The Bronx Maternity Hospital merged with
Jewish Memorial in 1952. Jewish Memorial closed its
doors in 1983 due to financial problems. Intermediate
School 218 replaced the hospital at that site.

So, it had multiple locations and names, was part of a
merger and a school does occupy its last location.

Hope this helps,

I am seeking information on the BERLYN family. In 1900 Philip BERLYN

According to the census, a year later in 1901 they were living in
London and had a daughter Sara.

Kate is my great aunt but apart >from the above I know nothing of the
development of that branch of the family.

Josefowicz: Jewish, Gentile. or Both? #general

Caroline Belle Fortier <Caroline.Fortier@...>
 

While researching the Czech side of my family I took a small break and put my
grandfather's name into some of the web databases. Every JOSEFOWICZ I found
was Jewish. I have always been told that my Polish ancestors were Catholic.
What are the chances that both Jewish and Gentile families in Poland shared
surnames? My grandfather's parents came to the US around 1890.

That just does not accord with the facts. England is *not* an
administrative district.

Nobody in England thinks of England as being anything other than a
