Kaunas (Kovno) web page #lithuania

Jose Gutstein
 

I have created a web page for Kaunas, the town where my beloved grandmother
grew up.

With a town as large as Kaunas was, with such a glorious Jewish history
until tragedy came upon it, there is so much material that it's impossible
to collect it all, let alone display it. However, I hope this start will be
the basis for more to come.

If anyone has any photos taken in Kovno before the war, or other material
they'd like to like to contribute, please let me know.

I am in need of some translation help >from Yiddish and Hebrew.

Western Pennsylvania Jewish Cemetery Project #general

Susan M. Melnick <SMMelnick@...>
 

The Western Pennsylvania Jewish Cemetery Project of the Rauh Jewish
Archives has collected more than 33,000 records >from Jewish cemeteries
in Pittsburgh and the surrounding region. Those records are being
transferred to the JOWBR. Any records that have not yet been transferred
are available by emailing me.

We are looking for cemeteries that we have missed, particularly in small
towns where there is no longer a Jewish community. The incredible
volunteers on this project have traveled through western Pennsylvania to
gather data. If you know of a cemetery that should be included, please
email me privately.

LEVY family ---Warsaw? #general

Jslevey@...
 

Hello,

As you all know, I wrote in a few weeks ago that I had started on my family
tree and discussed my father's side of the family, who had migrated to
England.

I found that according to the British census my grtgrt grandfather, Samuel
Levy (sometimes spelled Levi in the British records) was born around 1856 in
Warsaw. I now understand that there is a region (and also a province?) named
Warsaw and that he could be >from a small town within that region and/or
province. Prior to 1881 after marrying my grtgrt grandmother, Leah Caro, he
cannot be found on any census. He married Leah in 1878, in Birmingham, and
lived in Birmingham until his death in about 1896. He was a boot finisher.
I ordered a copy of the certificate of marriage registration, which states
that his father's name was Lewis Levy and that he was a peddler. I don't
think Samuel migrated with his family, as I find nothing on any census for a
Lewis Levy that would match (birth year and/or place is off).

I do know that Lewis would have to have died prior to 1887, because Samuel
and Leah named one of their sons Louis.

I have looked on Jewish Gen databases searching all of Poland but I can't
find anything that seems to match.

I'm not in a position to visit Poland right now, especially since I'm not
really sure where exactly I am looking. Does anyone have any suggestions as to
how one finds the town of origin and how one might find some type of record
of this family. I realize that the spelling could have been LEWI or LEWY in
Poland in addition to Levy/Levi.

Thanks,

Janette Levey Frisch

Seeking POTLER / PATLACH / PATLAKH family members #general

Michelle Potler <Potler2@...>
 

Seeking any and all descendants of Hannah and Abraham PATLACH (later
changed to POTLER) who immigrated >from Fastov, Kiev, Russia in 1910.
They had 8 children (3 girls, 5 boys): 4 boys and 1 girl were born in
Russia; 2 girls and 1 boy were born in Philidelphia, PA. Several
surnames were used in immigration, naturalization and census records
from 1910 to 1940. Possible derivations listed below.
There are at least two Potler families that immigrated >from Fastov in
the early-1900s: Patlakh 1904 and Patlach 1910. These two families
might be related, please let me know if you have information supporting
this theory.

I am trying to find any and all relatives, living or not, of my
in-laws. I know my father-in-law has cousins out there that he doesn't
even know about (he had 7 aunts and uncles almost never met) and I
would love to find these people. Please email me!

Machpelah Cemetery, Glendale, Queens- help needed #austria-czech

The Machpelah Cemetery's Manhattan office (718-366-5959) tells me that 2
of my CAHN/KAHN relatives are buried in Gate 23- Bnai Jischri Lef. But
because I cannot provide dates of death, the office is not able to give
me names/dates of any other relatives there.

So I need someone who is going to Machpelah anyway to check the burials
next to these 2 graves. If anyone is willing to help, please contact me
privately -- I can provide a few details, and I don't want to send more
than one volunteer on this mission of mercy.

Still searching for pre-1841 records for Barnet and Nathan families #unitedkingdom

Jslevey@...
 

Hi,

I think I've previously asked this question before. I realize that the first
British census was in 1841 and I also am told that parts of that census were
lost. In the 1851 census, with Celia Male's help, I found my grtgrtgrtgrt
grandmother, Lydia Barnet, born in 1781 in Whitechapel, Middlesex. I would
still like to find out, if possible who her husband was, and about either of
their parents. I know that birth, marriage and death records >from ancestry.com
only go back to 1838. I did manage to get the certificate of marriage
registration for her daughter, Eve Barnett and Nathaniel Nathan, but it wasn't a very
readable copy. I think Nathaniel's father's name was Israel, but I cannot
read a name for Eve's father (Lydia's husband). I searched the 1841 census
looking for an Israel Barnett. I also tried to find a death record for him and
could not.

It was suggested that I try the London Metropolitan archives. Perhaps I am
simply not adept at using the right keywords, or maybe I'm in the wrong place
within that site, but I seem to be going in circles and finding nothing.
There do seem to be some old records in existence, so I would still like to try.
Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks,

Janette Levey Frisch

Death Certificate # - Morris KAUFMAN -Brooklyn #general

Sharen Hogarth
 

I am hoping that some kind soul would be willing to look up the death
certificate number for my great uncle, Morris KAUFMAN. Social Security
records indicate that he died in October 1974 - 11235, Brooklyn, Kings. His
birth date is given as 15 March 1884 & S.I.N. # 115-10-8780.

Wish I could join all of you at the conference. Have a great time!

IAJGS Conference - Thew Jewish Chochka and Ephemera Show #general

Gloria Berkenstat Freund
 

The 26th Annual IAJGS Conference will present its own version of the
"Antiques Road Show," in which experts identify the treasures found in
attics, in the back of our closets and decorating our homes.

"The Jewish Chochka and Ephemera Road Show" will take place on Friday,
August 18th >from 9am to 12 noon in the Soho Complex on the Seventh Floor of
the New York Marriott Marquis. Those wishing to attend this event, who are
not already registered for the Conference, can go to the Conference
registration site at http://www.jgsny2006.org/registration.cfm, and register
for the day. The daily registration fee for Friday is $36.

The introductory lecture will be given by Rafi Guber, consulting genealogist
to the Simon Wiesenthal Center/Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles and
co-creator of the Museum's exhibit Finding Our Families Finding Ourselves,
which explores the family histories of Billy Crystal, Maya Angelou, Joe
Torre and Carlos Santana as well as others. Then, as Rafi explains it, "Our
panel of experts will look at your documents, photos, ephemera and 'stuff'
to help you understand what it tells you about your family. We won't be
telling you what it is worth, however, because we all know that it's
priceless. So bring your questions and your dusty old shoe boxes and let's
see what the past has to tell us."
