Please feel free to email me questions/comments, Let me know if you

Colorado Mohels/Circumcisions #general

Ellen Shindelman Kowitt
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Colorado has made progress identifying
the names of mohels and/or shochets that performed circumcisions in the late
1800s in the Colorado area.

The records for Dr. John ELSNER and Rabbi FREUDENTHAL are available, and an
online surname index is being created.

Do you have family stories about other men who performed brit
milah/circumcisions anywhere in Colorado or Kansas Territories prior to 1876
or in the state of Colorado after 1876?

Better yet, do you have those records? We'd like to help add them to an
index.

Please contact me offline. Thanks.

NY Birth Certificate / Will look-up #general

Debby Gincig Painter
 

I've gotten responses to my last inquiry which has led me to need a verification
of a birth certificate and a will. Is there someone heading to the archives that
can look up the following for me?

I have the birth certificate information for ISSIE GINCIG b February 15, 1901 to
William and Lena (nee MORRIS) GINCIG/GINZIG but need to know if there is a birth
certificate for Ira William (or William Ira) GINCIG born December 15, 1901 to the
same parents to verify they are not the same person.

Also I would like information of beneficiaries (and if mentions family members)
for Morris GINCIG/GINZIG (married to Julia REINHEIMER). He died March 29, 1950
in either the Manhattan area or maybe in Sheepshead Bay, New York. If not too
costly, a copy of the will would be great.

Thank you
Debby Painter

Estate Records for 1951-1973 for the Orange Free State, South Africa #southafrica

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

The following site http://www.beta.familysearch.org has now put online the
Estate Records, 1951-1973, for the Orange Free State, South Africa.
Although this is only a small portion of the total estate records, it is a
real bonanza for South African and other Jewish researchers.

The estate records are a wonderful resource as they can provide all or only
some of the following information: the name of the person, where they were
born, when died and where, their spouse(s), when married and where, names of
descendants and their married names and birth dates. In addition, the
estate can give you the property left by the deceased and who it was left to
which can be very interesting.

To view the records click on Africa and then the name of the records. You
can search by family name or by country the deceased was born in. As the
majority of Jews in South Africa were of Lithuanian descent, this is very
handy as you can find all Lithuanian-born individuals by going to Advanced
Search and plug in Birth and Lithuania. You will find approximately five
pages full of listings. Unfortunately, not all of the estates will have the
name of the shtetl in Lithuania as the descendants may not have known the
name of the shtetl or did not perhaps know how to spell it.

Some of the shtetls >from the major countries represented in the estate
records are:

LATVIA - Canday, Lutzin, Pilten, and Riga.

LITHUANIA - Abel, Bizui, Jasvan, Kurshan, Kwadan, Pikelly, Pokroi, Poneves,
Popelyany, Rittawen, Rokiskis, Salant, Saukena, Shadova, Shat, Shavli,
Telsia (Telz, Telsh, etc.), Trissik, Yurburg, Zabilen, and Zagara.

POLAND - Bialystok, Latria, Warsaw, and Wegrow.

RUSSIA - Curland, Gruzd, Sadowe, and Sukyajan (some of these are actually
Lithuania and Latvia).

It is well worth checking this site out as you may not realize that you have
branches of your family who went to Orange Free State in South Africa.

Re: Beth Heim Cemetery in Greenwich Village Options #general

Ittai Hershman
 

Stacye Mehard posted a wonderful entry in an old guide to Greenwich Village
regarding a Jewish cemetery there. This cemetery is the 2nd of 3 cemeteries
of Congregation Shearith Israel (better known as "The Spanish and Portuguese
Synagogue") in Manhattan.

A more modern reference is:

For genealogical research of families known to have belonged to this
