yes, laminating old documents is a big mistake, which probably cannot be undone
without risk of damaging them. but for the most part, we are interested in the
information they contain, and not the paper itself - so make yourself good copies
of the documents, and hopefully the copies will outlast the originals
I found this webpage >from the Georgia Dept of Archives and History: "PRESERVATION
BASICS FOR PAPER-BASED RECORDS"
http://palimpsest.stanford.edu/byorg/georgia/basics.html This includes the
observation that lamination cannot be considered a viable option for preserving
papers of enduring value.

Rose 3 months. Henry WAGENHEIM aged 31 lives with them. As Hoyman, alias Hyman, is

Cemetery Visit: Newark, NJ #general

Steven D. Bloom <sbloom@...>
 

I am looking for someone who could possibly visit Lenath Hatzedek Cemetery in
Newark, NJ, assuming it still exists under that name. My sources tell me its on
Grove St., though I am not familiar with Newark at all. I live in Virginia, so it
is not particularly easy for me to get to New Jersey.

In particular, I am looking for information on the father of Rabbi Dov Ber
HAILPERIN, who died in Orange, NJ in 1921. His father's given name may be in
Hebrew on his grave stone. I am trying to fill in some gaps between he and his
claimed ancestor, R. Jehiel HEILPERIN of Minsk.

Please contact me privately if you are willing to do this. I would greatly
appreciate it.

Thank you.

Re: Death Years Outside the Usual Resources [was: How to find the NYC cemetery] #general

I was wondering what Genners are doing to find Death Certificate info for the
period between 1948, end of the Italian Gen Index, and 1964/1965, when the Social
Security Death Index becomes rather standard [although I know there are exceptions]
I have many family members who passed away in the 1950s in NYC and obtaining their
info has been a brick wall for me.

Thanks & Shana Tova,

R' Jonathan EYBESCHUTZ family #rabbinic

Gilbert Hendlisz <gilbert.hendlisz@...>
 

Dear RavSiggers,

In the book Yesh Manhilin, written by Rav Pinhas Katzenellenbogen,
during the 18th century, there is a reference to a Rabbi Yosef,
living in Holleschau around 1750.

It is said about him that he was the father-in-law of Leib Ostrah, a
grandson of Rav Gabriel ESKELES and that his mother was the sister
of Rabbi Jonathan EYBESCHUTZ.

I have not found, until now, any references to R' Jonathan brothers
and sisters, exception made for a brother. Does anyone know of this
(or these) sisters or about a source where I could find some
informations.

Thanks in advance for your reply.
