According to the article, the cemetery dates back to 1842 and has

The article, which appears online at

mentions JOWBR (the JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry) and quotes
JewishGenners Eden Joachim and Florence Marmor, as well as Bob Friedman of
the Center for Jewish History.
Those interested in Bayside Cemetery may wish to read Florence Marmor's
introduction to the Database of Galitzianers Buried in Mokom Sholom
Cemetery's Free Burial Area. In this article, Florence refers to Mokom
Sholom Cemetery (aka [also known as] Bayside Cemetery).

Although the accompanying searchable database consists of 11,500 plus
persons whose death certificates indicated at least one Galician parent
and/or listed Austria or Austria-Poland, the introduction gives a glimpse
into the lives of some of New York's indigent Jews in the years 1880-1901.

"The Last Days of Buczacz" UCLA Lecture #general

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

There is a lecture that may be of interest to Galitzianers, or students of
the Holocaust, taking place in Los Angeles on Sunday, November 20th at
UCLA's Faculty Center at 7:30PM.

“The Last Days of Buczacz: Judicial Perspectives on the Destruction of a
Multiethnic Galician Town”

Speaker: Omer Bartov, The John P. Birkelund Distinguished Professor of
European History at Brown University

Event Description:

This lecture will discuss the fate of the Galician town of Buczacz, now
located in Western Ukraine, during the Holocaust, as reflected in
testimonies given during trials that took place in the federal Republic of
Germany in the late 1950s and 1960s. The population of Buczacz was made up
of Jews, Poles, and Ukrainians; the interrelationship between these groups
is the main focus of Bartov’s current project on Buczacz as a representative
town in the eastern European borderlands. This lecture will be concerned
primarily with the manner in which postwar German courtrooms reconstructed
the events of the Holocaust, how they defined the role, motivation, and
relative guilt of the perpetrators, to what extent and for what reasons they
trusted Jewish witnesses, and by which means they recreated the
sociopolitical context in which such local cases of genocide occurred during
World War II.

This event is the “1939” Club Distinguished Lecture in Holocaust Studies,
cosponsored by the UCLA Center for European and Eurasian Studies.

Lectures are open to the public at no charge, but ADVANCE REGISTRATION IS
REQUIRED.

To RSVP please email cjs@humnet.ucla.edu or call the RSVP line at (310)

Please note that seating is limited and will be available on a first-come,
first served basis. UCLA parking passes cost $8.

The UCLA Center for Jewish Studies sponsors lectures of interest to Jewish
genealogists throughout the year. For more info visit their website:

Searching: ZAWISHYNSKI, BROMBERG & GARNICK families - Wyskow & #general

Michael Trapunsky <trapunsky@...>
 

Hi all,

I'm looking for any information on the ZAWISHYNSKI, BROMBERG & GARNICK
families >from Wyskzow & Warsaw.

Shea ZAWISHYNSKI and Sarah (nee GOLDSTEIN) - my wife's great great
grandparents - lived in Wyskzow (or possibly Warsaw) in the mid 1800's.
They had the following 4 children that I am aware of:

1- Menashe ZAWISHYNSKI - had a daughter named Sarah who moved to Israel. I
know nothing else about his family or any other children.

2- Zelig ZAWISHYNSKI - married Rivka MANDELKO. They had seven children.
Their son Yakov moved to Israel while 3 of his daughters - Anna, Jenny, and
Sylvia - moved to the USA. I don't know anything about the other 3 children.

3- Yisroel Tzvi Hirsch ZAVIN (1871- 1939) - married Chana Rivka GARNICK
(1882-1946) - daughter of Shabsai Zelig & Faiga GARNICK.

Yisroel and Chana ZAVIN were my wife's great grandparents. They changed
their surname to ZAVIN when they came to the USA in 1925. They had 7 children.

4- Leah ZAWISHYNSKI (1882-1940) - married Itzik BROMBERG and had 5
children: Morris, Sarah, Yossi, Max, and Hymie. The came to the USA in the
1920's and lived in the Bronx.

If anyone knows anything about these families, or any other ZAWISHYNSKI
and/or GARNICK families, I would really love to hear back >from you.

Thank you very much,

Re: Working Backwards from Certificate of Naturalization #general

Doug Cohen
 

After 1906, all naturalizations were in the federal district court. You
need to find the archives of the district court in Albany (nearest NARA
branch -- either Pittsfield or Varick St. in Manhattan, I would assume) and
ask them for the naturalization petition. In the petition file, there will
also be a certificate showing the ship on which he arrived. Many NARA
branches have the ship manifests, whcih will show, among other things,
nearest relative left behind in the old country. Both of these documents
will be interesting to you!!

I am attempting to find his Mother's maiden name, but it is not on

There is a certificate number, a Petition number, and volume number on
the document. It was issued Albany, Albany County, NY, in 1920.
What is easiet route to get the filing paperwork asssociated with
this?
If I am asking a "basic" question, please indulge me. I am still new

Lodz Cemetery #poland

Nicki Chodnoff - On The Go Publishing <nicki@...>
 

I've hit a stumbling block. I've been trying to find my grandparents (Wolf
and Hudes Rozental) grave sites in the new Lodz Jewish cemetery.

I know Wolf and Hudes are buried there. My aunt told me that directly after
the war she visited her father's grave (Wolf). Wolf died in the Lodz Ghetto
in 1942. He was prominent in his synagogue in Lodz and after the war the
remaining synogague members secured a grave and put up a headstone.

My grandmother, who also died in the Lodz Ghetto in 1942, is buried in the
Ghetto Field, so my aunt couldn't find the exact location.

I've searched the Lodz cemetery database online at
http://www.jewishlodzcemetery.org and couldn't find their names. However,
only a small portion of the people buried in the cemetery are listed so far.

I've contacted the Jewish Community of Lodz and asked about my grandparents
graves and their location. They responded that neither of my grandparents
are buried in the cemetery, which I know is not true.

Is there a place where all the people buried in the cemetery are listed,
other than actually visiting the cemetery? Any and all suggestions on how to
proceed and find the burial spots will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
