I would like to trace a grandfather, surname Ostroburski, who
died in
Bialystok late 1920's to early 1930's. How do I go about
tracing death

Speech By Rabbi Dr. Warren Goldstein, Chief-Rabbi Elect of South Africa - an e-publication #lithuania

Judith27
 

Dear LitvakSIGdom,

Your LitvakSIG Online Journal is honored to announce the e-publication
of a "Speech By Rabbi Dr. Warren Goldstein, Chief-Rabbi Elect Of South
Africa, At The Annual Yom Hashoa Ceremony Held At Westpark Cemetery,
Johannesburg, On Sunday, 18 April 2004."

This Holocaust Remembrance talk tells about Reb Kalmen Meier
Goldstein who left Vorne, Lithuania, at the tender age of 17, and
eventually settled in South Africa, and his correspondence with his
niece, Roza Olshvang, who remained in Lithuania, and what she and the
rest of the family endured. It also describes the destruction of Vorne
and neighboring Telz, as well as the rebuilding of the Telz Yeshiva
after the war, and its impact on the development of American and
South African Jewry. As Dr. Goldstein says, "Those who escaped the
horrors of that time have rebuilt with distinction."

To read this moving address, please go to
http://www.jewishgen.org/Litvak/YomHashoa2004.htm

The LitvakSIG Online Journal strives to provide you with a wide
range of articles. Some articles, such as "JONISKIS AREA JEWRY" by
Jurgita Matuliene, a teacher in Joniskis, who was interested in
information about "Zydai Joniskio rajone," the Jews in the Joniskis
regional administrative division unit which included Zagare, Kriukai,
and a number of other villages, give you a unique perspective and
insight into Lithuanian Jewish History. Other articles, such as
the talks given by Vitalija Gircyte, Head Archivist of the Kaunas
Regional Archives, Laima Tautvaisaite, Director of the Vilnius
Lithuanian State Historical Archives, and Galina Baranova, will
offer valuable insight into doing Lithuanian genealogical research.

Some pieces, such as "Visiting The Jewish Cemeteries in Kaisadorys
Zasliai" by Aleksandrs Feigmanis display lists and photographs of
Jewish memorial matzevot in Lithuanian shtels while others such as
the Lithuanian Jews on Postage Stamps Series by Vitaly Charny give
us insight into both the artist and his work.

The LitvakSIG Online Journal also has a special place for creative
writing, including memoirs, fiction, as well as a full poetry page
with poems by Judy Baston, Barbara F. Lefcowitz, and Shulamith Surnamer.

To read, view, and enjoy the plethora of articles available to
you on the web via the LitvakSIG Online Journal, please consult the
Table of Contents at http://www.jewishgen.org/Litvak/journal.htm

And if you have an article or poem you or an ancestor have
written that ties in with the Lithuanian Jewish experience that you
would like to submit to the LitvakSIG Online Journal, please e-mail
me at Judith27@aol.com

Shalom,

locating NYC area burials - the value of a map #general

Renee Steinig <rsteinig@...>
 

Maybe this is obvious but I thought it might be worth mentioning:

If you're looking for an elusive burial in the New York City area, get
yourself a map of the region. I have found AAA's "NYC and Vicinity" map --
free to members at www.aaa.com -- very useful for laying out the big picture
of the relative locations and sizes of the Jewish cemeteries in the NYC
area. (The relative size of each cemetery is something to consider if you
need to call around in search of a burial -- i.e. call the largest ones
first).

The NYC and Vicinity map covers the five boroughs, all of Long Island,
Westchester as far north as the Hawthorne and Valhalla Jewish cemeteries,
New Jersey's Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Passaic, Union counties, and some of
Middlesex County. However, the map will not guide you to the Jewish
cemeteries in NY's Putnam and Rockland counties, NJ's Morris County, or
Washington Cemetery in Middlesex County, NJ; they missed the cut.

Larger cemeteries are identified on the map by name. Use more detailed local
maps, atlases, and online map searches to fine tune locations. Another
freebie, AAA's "NYC Metro Map," shows the NYC cemeteries in greater detail,
but includes a smaller area beyond the five boroughs. See
www.jgsny.org/nycem.htm for cemetery addresses,
www.erosenbaum.netfirms.com/jewish_cemeteries for driving instructions and
www.jewishgen.org/cemetery/northamerica for additional details.

BEIN in Switzerland #general

Ida & Joseph Schwarcz <idayosef@...>
 

My grandmother, Hermine Schwarcz (nee Fried) had a cousin
on her mother's side. The only information I have about him
is that he lived in Fony, Hungary (north of Miskolc). His name
is: Jakob? BEIN, he was born before the first world war.
I am trying to find his son, ? BEIN, who lived in the
same area, about 22 kilometers north of Miskolc,
close to the border of Borsod Megye, and later
emigrated to Switzerland.
If this information rings a bell with anyone, please write to me.

mendel #general

Richard McMurtry <rmcmurtry@...>
 

Hi Geners,

As requested by the moderator, I went to the following site:
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/GivenNames/

and it found no matches for Mendel or Mendal in
Poland, but found Mendle as a female name.

And then using the Daimoff... soundex, it yielded
19 names - none of which made any sense to me.

Can I ask if anyone knows what the male name
Mendel usually translated to after coming to America?

Or was it dropped and a completely different name taken.
