Maimonides, Cairo and Jewish vital records in Egypt. #general

Late last night I wrote: "Cairo 'n books" just do not go together. Before
anyone accuses me of forgetting Maimonides, I do wish to say - I have not not.
Please see:

and plenty of other references.

Only Jews >from Alexandria will have understood the joke in my previous posting
about the Genizah. When I was organising a reunion recently someone timidly
suggested inviting a previous Jewish inhabitant >from Cairo - and uttered sotto
voce, as an aside: "poor things, they can't help it"!

But joking apart, this is a very interesting subject - anyone who studies the
site http://www.aaha.ch/ will see that Alexandrians of all ethnicities have
reunions all over the world and have one of the world's best networks! No such
organisation exists for Cairo. We are indeed, as the motto on the AAHA site
says: "Disperses, mais unis; unis, mais divers [translation in footnote] - but
this will not last many more years - the "disperses" generation is slowly dying
out and the links with the younger generation are tenuous.

The *big* problem is of the thousands and thousands of historic Jewish vital
records in Egypt, where there are very few guardians to keep them, bring them
into the 21st century and accessible to all the family members scattered
throughout the world. See one commentary here:

Re: Jagelnica list #poland

Dear Milton:

JRI-Poland has indexed all the available Jagielnica records at the AGAD
Archive in Warsaw, which covers births >from 1860 through 1902, marriages
1874-1900, and deaths 1862-1899. The files you have are complete and all
these indices are included in the JRI-Poland online database searchable
at www.jri-poland.org by clicking on "search database."

Earlier records -- 1817-59 births and 1817-61 deaths -- are held at the
Ukraine State Historical Archive in Lviv and have now been microfilmed
by the LDS Church and can be viewed on Film #2405439 at your local
Family History Center.

Later records, up through the 1930s, are held at the Warsaw USC (civil
records office). These records are protected >from public use by Polish
privacy law and regulations governing USC offices. These records cannot
be indexed or microfilmed until the registers are transferred to the
AGAD Archives once all records in the register are over 100 years old.

Hope this helps in making your connection.

If the database I have is, therefore, not complete, where else can I go

BialyGen Meeting at the Jewish Genealogy Conference #poland

Mark Halpern <willie46@...>
 

Dear Bialystok Area Researchers:

The summer Conference on Jewish Genealogy will soon be upon us, starting
a week >from Sunday in Salt Lake City. As has been our practice since our
founding in 2003, a BialyGen meeting is scheduled. BialyGen is a
JewishGen SIG group. This meeting will be held on Monday, July 16 from
5:00 PM to 6:15 PM in the Granite Conference Center.

I hope all of you attending the Conference will plan to attend. For
those new to BialyGen, we cover the area near Bialystok that was part of
Grodno Gubernia prior to WWI. At this session we will introduce everyone
to BialyGen, its purpose, its website and its projects. Our website is
at http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/bialygen/index.htm.

We will also review the progress of our JewishGen Yizkor Book project to
translate the definitive history of Jewish Bialystok -- Pinkas
Bialystok, a two-volume history written in Yiddish by Abraham Hershberg
before he perished in the Bialystok Ghetto. The webpage for this project
can be found at http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/bialygen/Pinkos.htm.

We will also be discussing future projects for BialyGen. We need ideas
and volunteers.

See you in Salt Lake City.

Genners:

I am seeking any information on Paula (b 1899 Hamburg) and Leo ROTHSCHILD

children:
Berthilde (Hilda) age 13
Tirzah (Terry) age 11
Karlo age 7

All the children were born in Hamburg, Germany.

The girls were said to have moved later to the Netherlands and, presumably,
married.

Any help would be appreciated.

Bayside Cemetery in Ozone Park #general

Steven Lasky <steve@...>
 

Greetings,

I have good news for those of you who have become frustrated in the past
trying to obtain information on burials at Bayside Cemetery in Ozone Park,
New York.

I have very recently acquired most of the Bayside Cemetery burial data
(perhaps 24,000 of a total of 29,000 burials.) The burial data generally
contains the deceased's surname, given name, the name of the society who
owns the plot, the society gate number (only about 14,000 of the burials
have a town associated with the plot they're buried in), date of burial
(i.e. not date of death), age at death, and maybe a little bit more
information in certain instances. I have no photographs (except what I have
from when I went there in the last couple of years, for perhaps parts of
only a dozen society plots), nor do I have any information at all about the
deceased's Hebrew name or the Hebrew name of their father, and only the very
rare date of birth.

Here are the names of the European towns that are associated with some of
the society burial plots located in Bayside Cemetery:

Belarus: Lyubcha and Radoskovichi.
Lithuania: Kalvarija, Kraziai, Marijampole, Salant, Sejny and Veisiejai.
Poland: Biezun, Ciechanow, Gniezno, Golub-Drobzyn, Grajewo, Kalisz, Konin,
Krakow, Kutno, Makow Mazowiecki, Mlawa, Nasielsk, Plock, Przasnysz, Pyzdry,
Stawiski, Suwalki, Trzcianne and Wloclawek.

If you think a person of interest is buried at Bayside Cemetery, you can
write to me at the e-mail address below. This database has only about 24,000
names on it of a purported 29,000, so I might be missing the name of someone
you're looking for. There's nothing I can do about that. Many of us know
this cemetery is, for the most part, poorly maintained, so in the absence of
our being able to visit the cemetery and find who you are looking for, this
database can sure come in handy. Please enter the word "Bayside" in the
Subject field of your email, so I will be drawn to your inquiry.

With this new data and with my current cemetery burial information, not to
mention Rabbi Edward Cohen's burial data >from Connecticut, Western
Massachusetts and Rhode Island, I now have more than 210,000 burial names in
my database that is generally not currently available elsewhere. I have
managed to reconcile all my cemetery data and can now search my entire
cemetery db at the same time. Hopefully at some point my entire cemetery db
will be online on my website for all to search whenever they want.

I hope that the information I have made available will be helpful to you.

William GINCIG/GINZIG #general

Debby Gincig Painter
 

For years now I have been trying to find my Greatgrandfather William
GINCIG/GINZIG parents with no luck and my head is starting to hurt >from
banging on that brick wall!

This is what I have so far:
Birth certificates for children narrow his birth date to February 10,
1873 or February 15, 1876, died Los Angeles, Feb. 10, 1936 (age 60),
cert #8847. I do not have a couple of his death certificate and a
couple people have searched in NY for a birth certificate with no luck.
Wiliam married Lena MORRIS about 1899 - however 1900 Manhattan census
shows her living with parents in 1900 and there is no mention of William
nor of their first child Ira. (Another twist here as well: According to
Ira's WWI Draft card he was born December 15, 1899 but the California
Death Index shows his date of birth as December 15, 1901. But there was
supposively another son - Issie - born February 15, 1901 certificate
15056 [do not have a copy yet]. I have not been able to find anything
more on Issie.) No marriage certificate have been located yet.

Varying immigration records do not show the family either (used dates
1867-1876).

I did find this family in the 1880 census and believe it to be his
family but am unable to definitively connect them. Also they do not
appear again in any other census - unless of course the spelling is way
off.
Charles GINZIG 45 (1835) GER Self Married White Male New York
(Manhattan), New York City-Greater, NY Occupation: Necktie Maker
Rachael GINZIG 43 (1837) GER Wife Married White Female New York

Bernard GINZIG 21 (1859) GER Son Single White Male New York

(Manhattan), New York City-Greater, NY Occupation: Peddler
William GINZIG 4 (1876) US Son Single White Male New York
(Manhattan), New York City-Greater, NY

Other information I have:
There is a Morris Ginzig born August, 1867 who married Julia Reinheimer
(source: familysearch.com LDS records/1900 census). His parents were
both born in Germany, he immigrated about 1871 (1910 census), and he was
a jeweller in NY (1930 census). However his parents listed as Charles
and Rose (Mincey) Ginzig (familysearch.com LDS records) but I did not
find them in the 1880 census or another census. To complicate matters
even more, a cousin remembers her father travelling to Cheasapeake Bay,
NY to collect an inheritance >from an Uncle who was a diamond merchant
who supposively never married. (Sorry don't have a year when he
travelled to Cheasapeake Bay..)

Does any one have any advice as to how to proceed? Please reply privately.

Jennie (FAIKES) FRANKEL #general

sacredsisters3@aol.com <sacredsisters3@...>
 

Hello All

I am seeking any and all information on this woman
Jennie(FAIKES)FRANKEL. I have posted her obit, and its number VM10201.
Jennie Frankel died March 26, 1959. Her maiden name was Faikes and
that is the family name I am researching. My grandfather Milton Faikes
is the last known living sibling. My grandfather is in a nursing home
and can't recall much of anything about his family due to his advanced
age of 93 and senility.

I am trying to find out as much as I can about my grandfather's Faikes
side, but it is not easy to find much information on them. I am hoping
someone will see the obit and see a connection and hopefully provide
me with some answers. I am not sure how many siblings my grandfather
had, but it was quite a few. I am trying to find living descendants of
Jennie and of Zelda(Faikes)Segal who is listed as a sister. I have
been unable to find any information at all about Zelda and it makes me
wonder if she was even living in the United States, for there was two
brothers who immigrated to Argentina in 1928.

Those two siblings were David & Mark/Marco Faikes and they lived and
died in Argentina. There is also another sister named Rose Friedman
mentioned and I do have information on her. My main objective is to
seek help in finding more information about Jennie & Zelda Faikes. I
have passenger manifests on both women. I know that Jennie went to
Philadelphia, but no clue as to what happened to Zelda.
