Cemetery/Burial Puzzle #general

JudiZimmer
 

Some time between 1910 and 1932, my widowed great-grandmother, Jochwet
ABROMOWICZ nee BETT (aka Helvit, Yetta, Eva, Judith, depending on which
document you read) remarried a man named MITTLER (unknown first name).
She died in September 1932 and was buried at Mt. Hebron Cemetery in
Queens, in the Rzes Korczyner Society plot. She was born in Nisko, came
here >from Radomysl nad Sanem, died in the "Old Israel Home" (somewhere
in NYC, again no luck finding anything about it) and as far as I know
had no connection with either Rzeszow or Korczyna (I am assuming those
towns make up the society's names). In addition, she seems to be buried
there alone--no evidence of the husband or any other family members. The
society is defunct and except for me, no family members have any
knowledge of her. I have not found any online info on a marriage license
or death certificate, although I plan to go to the NYC archives next
month. My question is this: can anyone guess why would she have been
buried in that particular society's plot with no family connection to
the society?

IAJGS #latvia

The National Board of the Israel Genealogical Society and each
individual member congratulate our National President, Michael
Goldstein, on his election to the presidency of the International
Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies.

This is a history-making event, and one which we hope will set a
precedent: this marks the first time that this high position is held
by a non-American and an Israeli to boot! It highlights the fact that
IAJGS has truly become an international association.

We at IGS are certain that Michael will breathe fresh air into the
organization, and we wish him great success in his undertaking.

Re: Given name MYSL #general

Bev Potter <basha@...>
 

Sid,

I'd like to see the manifest, if it's possible to provide it.

But I tend to wonder this:
When your father approach the counter and the clerk asked
'NAME?' - Perhaps your father (or his mother or father) said
"mmm, yussel" and the clerk wrote MYSL.

Guess I see things in a different light.

Misslitz, Moravia/Miroslav, Czechoslovakia #general

Chuck Weinstein <cmw521@...>
 

Our congregation is putting together a permanent memorial to the Jewish
community of Misslitz/Miroslav. We hold a Holocaust Torah dedicated to this
town in south central Czech Republic today. What we are especially looking
for at this point are stories of the people of Miroslav, their day to day
life, and especially information on the children. If you or members of your
family grew up in or lived in Miroslav, we would like to hear >from you.
Miroslav was part of the Sudetenland that England and France forced
Czechoslovakia to cede to Germany in late September, 1938, and the German
army and SS arrived in Miroslav with very little warning on October 1, 1938.
A Jewish community numbering about 500, which had existed since at least the
middle of the 17th century, fled in every direction, but ultimately, most
were caught up in the war. Few survived. Even fewer returned after the
war, most survivors having gone to Israel or the United States.

Please respond privately to me with your stories and any other information
you care to share. We have heard >from a few survivors and their families,
and have already reunited two cousins who had not seen each other since
1938. With your help, Miroslav will be permanently remembered at Temple
Beth-El in Huntington, Long Island, NY.

I have posted these four documents >from Vienna records. They are
about my PGM, Feige Koch/Barbasch. She was born in Podvolchisk
(Barbasch/Gisnberg) and went to Vienna with her husband, then to
Palestine in 1938 (?).
Here is the link to viewmate: http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate
I would like to know about each one of them, including translation
and meaning of the document.
Thank you.
