Cemeteries make mistakes and sometimes you get a clerk who does so.
I had called Mt. Olivet Cem, non-Jewish in Queens NY, and was told my
Relative was not there even had a death certificate. So I pursued two
Other cemeteries with the same name in the NY area and go nowhere.
I called the first Mt. Olivet Cemetery and this time found the person.

HANSON-SHERWOOD and VELIN in Copenhagen #general

Derek & Rosemary Wenzerul <dandr@...>
 

I am trying to trace two cousins who I know lived in Copenhagen, Denmark in
1986.

Their names are:

Toni HANSON-SHERWOOD and her brother Nils VELIN.

They had a brother Peter who died and their mother was Evie Velin (nee
Vandermolen/Molen).

I have tried looking at the Danish Telephone Directory on-line, but as I
don't understand Danish, I can't enter the details.

We have lost touch with this side of the family and would love to make
contact.

I would be so grateful if anyone can help?

Re Stenlauf or Steinlauf in Austria Hungary #general

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Richard W. Schiff [27 July 2004 ] asks about the location of Stenlauf or
Steinlauf in Austro-Hungary ie the Habsburg Empire. He is researching the
Jacob KOHN family who lived in this town during the late 19th
century. Jacob Kohn married Pauline ENGLANDER.

I suspect this is part of Waag Neustadtl or Neustadt an der Waag also known
as Vag-Ujhely or Vagujhely in Hungarian with just over 20,000 inhabitants
today. In the19th century, the small town had a sizeable Jewish population.

The town which is now in Slovakia is known as Nove Mesto nad Vahom
or Nove Mesto. This is an area dealt with by the Hungarian SIG of
Jewishgen, but because many Jews migrated to Vienna, the capital of
the Habsburg Empire, Richard may well find family links on the
Bohemia-Moravia [Bohmor] SIG group. The name of the latter
SIG is misleading as it covers Vienna and the rest of Austria as well,
with its much larger Jewish population approaching 220, 000
at its height :

Re: LUZKI #poland

The town may be LUZKI in the Wilno region as per Yad Vashem's Avraham
Klevan's register of destroyed Jewish Communities, Jerusalem 1982.

Shalom,

2. My recently late grandmother said that her parents' hometown was
"Vugge," Poland (that's how it sounded)--spelled something like
"Logzski"--a border town with the Russian border, wherever it was circa
1895. These fragments don't add up to anything for me . . . any help=
on the town? Could she possibly have meant as far away as Lodz?

Negocyant Translation Thanks #poland

Rebecca Fenning <macguffin317@...>
 

Thanks to all who offered an explanation for the word "negocyant" (which,
for others interested, is not Polish, but French, and means businessman or
trader). I feel a little stupid for not realizing this myself, after taking
6 years of French, but my excuse is that that was a long time ago!

Thanks everyone for your prompt willingness to help me out!

Re: Negocyant - Polish Occupation question #poland

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Rebecca Fenning of Los Angeles, CA asks on 27 July 2004 on the
meaning of *negocyant* as an occupation of her gt gt grandfather
Pinkas KALISCH >from Lwow [Lemberg].:

It means merchant or dealer and is derived >from the French "negotiant"
and also used in English and archaic Austrian-German ie someone who
negotiates prices.

Austrians used many French word in the 19th century and remember
Lemberg was part of the Habsburg Empire at that time.

Searching the database - correction #poland

Pat & Gerry O'Brien <obrieng@...>
 

Dear All

My suggestion the other day for searching the database was slightly
misleading and should read:

Go to Jewish Records Indexing - Poland
Go to Search Database
Go to end
In "Search for SURNAME or TOWN" - Key in Surname only
Make sure "Daitch-Mokotoff Soundex" is on
Do not enter or change anything in the other fields

Good Luck
