therefore, unable to see the Sugihara documentary) does anyone know if it
will become available to organizations for distribution in other cities?

The film "Sugihara" DVD can be purchased for $19.95 for home video use
through the PBS website:

sm-pbs-sugihara-conspiracy-of-kindness--fi-2009618.html

This a wonderful film, so we appreciate LitvakSIG allowing this one-time
commercial mention. I also believe that the purchase allows the showing
of this film to educational, non-profit organiztions, such as genealogical
societies. Check with PBS sales directly. All information is on their
website and there is a phone contact number as well.

Thank you to all who have written me with advice. I am ordering the death
certificates for both William and his wife to see what information it will hold.

researching: MASS (and MEYEROWITZ and now adding GOLDSTEIN) #general

marty <mandjmeyers@...>
 

I've made some progress tracking Moische MAFS >from Bresowice. Originally, I was
looking to trace Awrum Izhok MEYEROWITZ >from Brestovitsa, the same town my
great-grandfather Hirsch Tsvi MEYEROWITZ came from. According to a 1914 ship
manifest, Awrum was going to his aunt Rifke MEYEROWITZ, c/o Mafs on Sutter Ave
in Brooklyn.

After failing to find the address in the NY 1915 census at the NYC public
library, I came home and found that Steve Morse, yet again, had my solution in
hand. I was able to enter the address for Sutter Ave and get not only the 1920
ED but a button that took me directly to the film roll for the 1920 census. A
little searching and I found, 2 house numbers away on Sutter Ave, a Max MASS with
his wife Rebecca (presumably the aunt Rifke >from the ship manifest) and 3
children, Miriam, Abraham and Louis. A simple search for Max MASS in the 1930
census found Max with wife Beckie, and children Mary, Albert and Louis, now
living on Butler Avenue.

A little more searching on the ItalianGen site for NYC marriages found the 1932
marriage for Mary MASS and a Jack GOLDSTEIN. I also found that Max, Beckie and
many other MASS are buried at Mt. Carmel in the Brestovitser section, so
hopefully there is a good chance of finding descendents.

If any of this sounds familiar, please contact me directly at
meyers01@....

Thanks,

Marty Meyers

I don't believe that is the right one, Bill. There is no Latvian there.

I am not sure that there is such a free website, Bea, but all of us
will be glad to learn of it if there is one!

Thanks to Tara for sharing with us the photos. The Cyrillic
alphabet is a soluble challenge. Can you share with us some details
about that cemetery? It seems that it is quite new. Any real old
graves?

I took these photos in the Lviv Jewish cemetery
while I was there.
Unfortunately, I didn't transcribe the cyrillic yet:
