Request of what to put on a tombstone #general

Mjn519@...
 

This may seem like a strange question but I was wondering today about the
tombstone makers. When a person dies, would the stone be made >from the
cemetery or an outside company? I'm sure its one or the other. So would they
have the original information as to what they would need to put on the tombstone
(the request >from a relative as to what to carve on the stone)? How would I
find this information (the tombstone maker and request?) I am looking during
the years of 1907-1948, cemeteries in NY and NJ.

Yankel YASHINOVSKI/Y from Cuba #latinamerica

Eilat Gordin Levitan
 

The YASHINOVSKI family was >from Bransk, Poland.
Son Yankel left Poland c 1926, eventually settling in Cuba. By then
his sister Gutka Tova CIMBAL moved to Sweden with her family. The rest
of the family perished in the holocaust in Bransk.
In 1950 Yankel was able to find (after much search) his sister Gutka
and her family in Israel. He very soon arrived for a visit.
What we know; He was well off and was a colonel of the fire department
in Cuba. He was married twice and had 3 daughters; two >from his first
wife and the third was >from a local Cuban woman. During the visit in
Israel ( c 1950) Yankel (dressed in uniforms) went to the Rehovot home
of the first president of Israel; Chaim Weizmann, and gave him a
Diploma of the fire fighters of Havana.
He kept in touch with the family in Israel for some years but then
touch was lost.maybe someone would know the daughters?....

Searching for my aunt Rachel ZYLBERSZTAJN #general

Rose and Robert Raymen <rr.raymen@...>
 

Dear Genners

For several years now I've been searching for records of my aunt Rachel
ZYLBERSZTAJN (ZILBERSZTEJN) to no avail. According to the POT my father
lodged in 1956, my aunt was 16 years old when she perished in the Lublin
Ghetto in 1941. Rachel was born in Kalisz (Poland) the second child of my
paternal grandfather, Abram ZYLBERSZTAJN and Raszka NOMBURG, his second
wife. Although I've been unsuccessful in obtaining any records for my aunt,
I was fortunate enough to locate a birth and census record for her brother
Isochor (Yissachar) born in 1925. I would appreciate any suggestions >from
you, especially those researching Polish records.

Please respond privately.

Best Wishes

New York Times Magazine article: How do you prove you are a Jew? #general

Mark Fearer <Mark.Fearer@...>
 

Hi folks,
I'm on the digest mode, so hopefully this is not repetitive.
There a good and very long article, entitled "How do you
prove you are a Jew?" and while it focuses on religion,
genealogy plays a prominent role in answering that question.
The link is:

You may need to register, if you haven't already.

ORLEN of Rochester NY #general

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Cousins,

A number of years ago I wrote, then called an elderly widow of an
ORLEN man, who lived in Rochester, NY. Obviously, I wanted to find
out if there was any connection to my family. But the woman wouldn't
talk about it, and hung up. Does anyone know, personally, any members
of that family, who might be willing to talk to me?

Best, Steve Orlen Tucson AZ

Kurt and Erma SCHLESINGER Son Henry - Incorporation or stockholder search #general

Melodysdeals
 

I received a wonderful idea to my posting yesterday about locating Kurt
and Erma SCHLESINGER's son, Henry. I know that Kurt owned several
properties in New York City and that one of the partners was an
attorney. It was suggested that they probably incorporated. I don't
think the corporation would have any of their names in the name of the
corporation, but if there was a way to search by share holders or
officers, then I could at least find the name of the corporation. The
attorney's son did tell me that his father left the group and that Kurt
remained with only one other partner for a while. When the partnership
had large holdings, it was decided to distribute the properties and go
their separate way to ensure that their children would not have to work
with so many people. Stephen was sketchy on details. He is in his
70's and does not remember his father having anything other than a
business relationship with Kurt. One of the other partners was
Vladamir (he did not remember a last name), but he was a family friend
that later went into show business in some form. They all attended the
same synagogue in New York City.

I am hoping that someone will have some ideas on how to search using
this information.

Facial recognition expert needed #general

Mel Comisarow <melcom@...>
 

I have a group photo >from 1910 and another group photo >from 1919. A
woman, 91-years-old in 1910 and 100 years-old in 1919 is obviously
present in each photo. I have reason to believe that others, ranging in
age >from approximately 6 to 55 in 1910, are present in each photo. Is
there anyone, skilled in facial recognition, who would be willing to
look at the two photos and tell me if there are any further matches?
Thanks.
