Additions to JOWBR #general

Joyce Field
 

JewishGen is pleased to announce the addition of over 187,000 records and over
10,000 tombstone images to the JEWISHGEN ONLINE WORLDWIDE BURIAL REGISTRY (JOWBR).
The database now contains over 800,000 records in 1,810 cemeteries and
landsmanschaft plots.

Additions were made to the records of the following countries: Belarus, Canada,
Egypt, England, Germany, Hungary, India, Israel, Italy, Lithuania, Netherlands
Antilles, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Switzerland, Syria, Ukraine, and United
States.

Significant contributions were made by the following persons and organizations.
While all contributors are acknowledged and appreciated, we are pointing out the
following for their extraordinary efforts.

- Carolynne Veffer (JGS Toronto) - 13 Toronto cemeteries (8,000 records)
- Bruno Segal - Botosani, Romania (~13,200 records).
- Terry Lasky - 11 Colorado cemeteries (~17,700)
- Susan Melnick (Rauh Jewish Archives) - 9 Pennslyvania cemeteries
(>5,300 records)
- Rabbi Ed Cohen - 185 Connecticut, 31 western Massachusetts
and 8 Rhode Island cemeteries (~90,000 records)
- Gilda Kurtzman -
Significant additions and revisions of Israeli cemeteries

None of these accomplishments would have been possible without
the efforts of Nolan Altman, JOWBR Technical Coordinator;
Michael Tobias and Warren Blatt, JewishGen's amazing technical team;
and the encouragement of Susan King, JewishGen's founder and
Managing Director. We also want to thank the team of volunteer
translators that worked on 16 cemeteries. Finally, without the
donations of photographs and burial records by hundreds of
individuals and organizations, this project would not be possible.
Our thanks and appreciation to all.

The JOWBR database is searchable at
< http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/cemetery >.

Please contact me or Nolan Altman, < nta@pipeline.com >,
about the donation of additional material to JOWBR.

Researching a LYONS family living in NY in mid-late 1880s #general

Juliet <juliet@...>
 

Hi all,

I am interested in a LYONS family that lived in NY 1880s who originated >from
England perhaps in the early 1850s.

Mordechai Lyons was born in 1821 in England. In the 1880 census, he lists his
occupation as cigar maker. He is married in 1853 to Maria LAZARUS born (also in
England I believe) in 1826.

They have at least 5 children, Bertha (b 1854), Sarah (b 1857), Leah (b 1858)
Julia (1863), and Henry (b 1871).

I think Bertha married a Mr. LANSEADEL and Julia married a Mr STRAUT.
Sarah married Morris STAMPER in 1883 and died in 1925.

It is possible that Mordechai Lyons was a sibling of Esther Lyons who married Moses
Lazarus who were the parents of Emma Lyons Lazarus.Although I have also seen Emma
Lazarus's mother attributed with the maiden name Esther Nathan.

Any additional information about this family would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Juliet Stamper

Argentine Surnames Index #galicia

Dear Genners and Siggers,

Would like to draw your attention to a very useful index of about
38,000 surnames in Argentine. It helps those who are trying to find
out whether such a family ever ended up there. This supplements the
online 4 Ashkenazi cemeteries in Buenos Aires. Not all the Jews
ended up in the capital city.

Dear friends,
I want to thank everyone who helped me with addresses
and links.
It seems that I've been so enthusiastic to see
Monika's name in that article, that I didn't notice
the additional n in her surname, neither in the story
nor in all the addresses I received, until she
answered my letter....

LIFSHITZ/LIPSHITZ in Ekaterinoslav (Dnipropetrovsk) 1850-1920 #general

Pam Jastremski <jastremski48@...>
 

I am looking for information on my grandfather's family. I believe that they
may have originally lived somewhere near or in Dnipropetrovsk (Ekaterinoslav),
Ukraine on the Dnieper River. I think that perhaps the town they lived in may have
had a prison or there was one very close. I also think that perhaps there was a
river that ran through the town but I suppose that is not uncommon.

The father was Joseph, the family name appears to have been LIFSHITZ/LIPSHITZ but
was changed to LIPSON after they immigrated to America. There were 8 or 9 sons, no
daughters. The sons were, Yankov b.ca.1874, Samuel b.1875, Joseph b.1880, David
b.1881, Abraham b.1884, Isaac b.ca.1886, Solomon b.ca.1889 and Leo b.1893 in
Starodub according to his USA Social Security Number Application. The mother was
called Rose or Rosa (perhaps Rasya or Razsia). Her maiden name may have been
ROSKIN. The father taught the Talmud in his home to the local children. He died in
about Oct. 1916, exact date and place of burial are unknown.

Five of the sons, Samuel, Joseph, David, Abraham and Leo are known to have come to
America. >from research it appears that all but Leo spent time in England between
1900-1904 and immigrated to America >from there, leaving >from Southampton at
different times between about 1903 and 1904. Solomon moved to France and settled
in Paris. Yakov married in about 1895 and lived in Rostov, Ukraine where he was a
wholesale produce merchant. Isaac was executed in prison as an anarchist between
1908 and 1912. The youngest brother Leo also spent many years in prison for anarchy
and was originally sentenced to death. According to family story, due to the
efforts of his mother and his very young age (he was only about 16 when arrested)
his sentence was changed to life imprisonment. After the Russian Revolution, he was
released in 1917 >from a prison that I believe was called Kholodno-Gorskaya Katorga
in Kharkov, Ukraine. He worked his way across Russia and Siberia and immigrated to
America possibly through San Francisco, CA in about 1920.

The spelling of the surname on ship manifests that I have located varied ...
Liffshits, Liffshitz, Lifshiz and Lipshits. On the1910 Federal Census it was
primarily spelled Lipshitz or Lipschitz and by the 1920 Census all but David had
changed the spelling to LIPSON, he changed a few years later. Leo appears to have
begun using Lipson as soon as he got here.

The mother came to America in 1914 and joined one of her sons in New Haven, CT.
The four sons are known to have lived in the in Massachusetts, Connecticut and New
York at various times but the Hartford, Bristol and New Haven area of CT seems to
have been where they all lived at one time or another. The mother is known to have
been in Bristol, CT in 1916 >from an entry in the city directory and listed as Rosa
Lipson, widow of Yosel, living in the home of her son Joseph.

I would appreaciate any additional information.

Edmonton Cemetery (London, England) #general

Gail Copeland <gail.copeland@...>
 

I have a plot number for a burial at Edmonton Cemetery in London that consists of
a letter and a number: K-5. I know that the K is the section. Is the 5 simply a
row number, in which there are several graves, or is it the exact location of a
specific grave?

Also, what was the last year that burials were done at Edmonton Cemetery (am I
right that it is now full and has been for quite sometime?)?

Thanks for your help.

I'm trying to find some distant cousins of mine who can really help me fill out a
certain mystery section of one of my trees. I found them in the "public records"
section of ancestry.com and cross-checked with ZABA search and found their address
and phone number as current as 2005. However, when I try that number it says that
it's out of service for incoming calls.

I've googles and switchboarded out the wazoo. Does anyone have any ideas as to
where to go >from here? Does anyone live near XXXX Avocado Drive in Ft. Lauderdale? These people are in their late 80's and
early 90's so I kind of want to try to find them sooner rather than later. :)
