Re: Boston, Mass. department store question #general

Peter Zavon <pzavon@...>
 

The Bradlees that was acquired by Stop and Shop was a grocery store, not a
department store. I got to Boston in late 1967, a little later than the referenced
date. I recall a department store downtown, essentially across the street >from
Filene's (Filene's was a whole store, the Basement was merely the "sale annex"),
but I am unable to remember the name of that local department store. Perhaps
someone else can with this note as a memory jogger.

chain was acquired by Stop & Shop in 1961.

Bradlees.

he passed away in 1879.

The viewmate link is http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=16173

I would very much appreciate assistance in translating the tombstone inscription
into English. Please reply privately or through the response form in Viewmate.

Seeking information on Rabbi Hanoch Krupnick #general

I'm looking to find some information about a Rabbi >from Shargorod. His name was
Rabbi Hanoch halevi Krupnick (maybe spelled differently). He apparently died in
1905 and had a son named Ze'ev. I cannot find any confirmation of there having been
a rabbi >from Shargorod (or someplace nearby) or any Rabbi with that name. Is there
anyone who has any information that would either confirm or deny this rumour?

Need english translation on Hebrew/Yiddish postcard #general

sacredsisters3@aol.com <sacredsisters3@...>
 

Hello All

I have just posted the front and back of a postcard that a coousin of mine just
sent me. I need every able person's help in getting the english translations of the
writing on the front and back. I believe the writing on the back is either Hebrew
or Yiddish. I also know that it was sent >from Russia to a Louis Mendelson in
Brooklyn-NY.

This of course is one family line that I have been working on for several years and
this is new information that was sent to me by a newly connected cousin. I am very
excited about this and need help in learning what all the writing translates too.
The view mate numbers are VM16190-16191. Any and all help is appreciated.

HARTSTEIN tombstone in Viewmate 16180 #germany

John Anderson <counselor12721@...>
 

I would appreciate any help in translating the Hebrew on the tombstone of
"Isrial (sic) Jacob Hartstein" who was born in 1901 and died in 1902. I'm
trying to determine who was the father. My great great aunt, Malke LOEWY,
married Pincus HARTSTEIN, and they settled in Fargo, ND in the early 1880s;
I am certain of some connection, but am uncertain how. Perhaps the
translation will help. Thank you.

Please go to Jewish Gen, Viewmate, and locate item # 16180

Assuming you've used Steve Morse's tools, veromi.net and zabasearch.com, to
identify possible relatives and their contact information, you can also use
Facebook/MySpace/Geni to contact people. Don't forget obituaries. For those people
that may have lived and died in Florida, you can check these links to search for
public records that might provide corroboration/leads on information you have.

Re: Jewish records in Milwaukee #general

CAROLYNR
 

Lisa,
Thank you for posting a reminder regarding this fine museum in Milwaukee. I was a
volunteer there when I lived in Milwaukee, doing a lot of scanning of the archived
family history file photos and other items for them to have digital records. I
have every possible bit of info they had on my family. Others who may have
Milwaukee connections should definitely contact the museum archivist to see what
may be in their files. This information is not all cataloged online, but inquiries
are welcomed.

While I would love any and all info about our GOLDBERG family, I know the
Milwaukee people of my generation pretty well. My query is actually for family
descended >from or left behind in Kolki, Ukraine (Russia/Poland - depending on the
year). Did my grandparents, Rubin and Anna Goldberg leave behind siblings or aunts
and uncles, besides their parents, and who were their parents etc?

Shaul Sharoni in Israel was kind enough to provide some links to the Yad Vashem
database that appears to have some information I can begin to look at... I just
hope someone knows of any relatives there. www.yadvashem.org (It worked best in
Firefox vs I.E. browser)

-Carolyn Berg Rutherford (My dad, Meyer, Hyman and Sidney changed name to Berg
after WWII)

Re: Jewish records in Milwaukee - From: Lisa Grayson
Carolyn Goldberg Rutherford asked about finding information on relatives who lived
in Milwaukee years ago. The Jewish Museum Milwaukee has a wonderful resource: an
index of obituaries published in the Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle, 1921-1996:
