I was unable to attend the Philadelphia conference last week. Can anyone tell me if
Dr Dobrincu indicated that any archive material will be digitalized and put on the
web? My family came >from Braila, and have little to no information for them. It
is the one branch of my family tree that has almost no leaves!

Dear Martha,

Do a search at www.Findmypast.com for HIMMELHOCH and variations, check out
the Passenger lists leaving UK 1890-1960, there are a total of 37 entries, 7 of
the entries are for the USA. The other entries are mainly for Cape Town, SA
and Sidney, Australia. The use of the search engine is free, contact me if
you need any of the transcriptions inspected as I have a subscription to
this website.

using more data (was GOLDMAN from Bayonne) #general

Barbara Zimmer
 

Sarah asked about the GOLDMAN family of Bayonne NJ >from the 1930
census for which there were three children listed in the 1930 census.
There was a lot more about this family (including more children ) in
earlier censuses for Bayonne and one for the family in NY in 1900.

Going back to the 1920 census, we find the same family with more
children. Sam is working as a blacksmith and owns the home at 383
Broadway. Living in the same building is Irving GOLDMAN family (a
son of Sam and Ida) also a blacksmith. In 1910, we see that Sam's
wife is listed as Sarah and Irving is listed as Ereving, but this is
the same family. Sam's mother-in-law is listed as Annie LOUTHWITZ. In
the 1900 census for NY, the same family is listed with the eldest son
as Isidor instead of Irving; Sam's wife is Lottie. Sam's
brother-in-law is living with the family and his last name is given
as LEVENSOL.

Irving Goldman still lived in Bayonne when he registered for the WWII
"Old Men's" draft in 1942.

"mock-up" (?) and actual headstone - Plashet cemetery, England #general

Chris Gould <oldandintheway9@...>
 

Dear All,

I have posted on Viewmate 2 photographs of the headstone of my
g-grandmother Rebecca Levy (Gould). She was buried in Plashet cemetery
(London, UK) in 1901. The first photo (VM13317) (I dont know when it
was taken) shows a pristine stone and lettering including Rebecca's
personal details (i.e. name, age, date died, husband).

The second photo (VM13318) (taken this week) shows a slightly
different stone, (parentheses around last name, absence of 4 lines of
general English wording included in the earlier photo) but same personal
details.

The first photo looks "too good to be true". Was it a practice to prepare
"mock-ups" of headstones for approval prior to the actual carving?
The age of the second stone is such as to suggest it may have been
the original stone. If the first one had been damaged, then I think it
not unreasonable to expect any replacement to have been identical.

I would welcome comments.

Hello,

Is there a new URL for the genealogy search tool
called SurnameNavigator?

Searching on Google for http://www.surnamenavigator.org/
results in 751,000 hits. So it is a little difficult to
determine it's fate.

Sincerely,

FHL Records from Bukowina--Are the Jewish records part of church records? #general

Ava Cohn <avatom@...>
 

Has anyone searched the Family History Library records >from the
Chernivtsi State Archives that cover the areas of the Bukowina that
include Storozynetz and Krasna Ilski? These metrical books are >from
the orthodox church in Krasna Ilski and the roman catholic church in
Storozynetz. I am wondering if Jewish records were part of the church
documentation in these towns or if the rabbi in Storozynetz kept those
records? Krasna Ilski was in the Storozynetz area but did not have a
synagogue. The library does not indicate that there are Jewish
records specifically but does say that the films include records
from surrounding villages. Any help would be welcome.
