locating two sisters (BURTEL and SPUNGAN) whose address during WW 2 was Kreutzburg, Latvia #latvia

David Priever
 

Dear fellow Latvian SIGer's

I am once again trying to assist someone with a family mystery. Two sister
Ethel Burtel and Sarah Spungan who were born in Riga Latvia (dates
of birth unknown) were living in Kreutzburg during World War 2. Maiden name
was Druck. There was another sister Hannah and a brother Herman.

Only one sibling came to the US author David Druck. They disappeared.
Nothing else was ever heard about them.

Names of husbands unknown at this time. Any children who survived unknown
Nothing. The records of Yad VaShem were already searched. What am I missing?

Thank you in advance for your suggestions/help. I am trying to help a friend
who is not genealogically coordinated.

Sincerely

David Priever

Thanks to a fellow Rom-SIGer, I was directed to a website where I found my
family's business in the 1924, 1925, 1937, and 1938 phone directories. The
search took about two seconds. In case you're unfamiliar with this resource
here's the link: http://genealogyindexer.org. Thanks to Logan.

Re: ViewMate help request - can you read these names? #general

This upload:
http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/viewmateview.asp?key=19904
shows what I think are the two given names of the surviving son of Nuchym
ZYLBERCWAJG, >from his 1829 Lublin death record. I can't make out the
names. Can you? Even if you're not sure, I'd be grateful for your
guesses.

And the entire document can be seen here:

in case it helps with context, handwriting, etc.

Jewish Burial Plot (pre 1900) in Moshassuck Cemetery in Rhode Island #general

Anna Reuter <anna94306@...>
 

Dear Cousins:

Has anyone visited the Jewish Plot inside the Moshassuck Cemetery in
Central Falls, Rhode Island?

The Moshassuck Cemetery dates back to the 1860s.
The David I. Goldberg Cemetery (inside the Moshassuck Cemetery) has a
Plaque that dates to 1890. I called the Moshassuck Cemetery telephone
Number and their Data Base of Names only goes back to 1909.

I am trying to locate some Jewish Graves that date back to the 1890s.
I have already contacted Lincoln Park Cemetery in Warwick, Rhode Island and
Temple Beth-El Cemetery on Reservoir Avenue, Providence.
Rhode Island Death Certificates (pre 1900) are not helpful. They do not
list the Cemetery.

If you have some information on the Jewish section of the Moshassuck Cemetery,
please contact me privately.

Thanks,

Anna Reuter

Union Field Cemetery in Ridgewood, NY #general

Shari Kantrow
 

Dear Genners,
I thank you again for all your responses regarding Sima MEYER/MAYER who
appeared to be interred at Union Field, according to Jewishdata.com.
I was initially told by the office workers there that she was not buried there,
although I suspected otherwise, as did so many who responded to me.

The overwhelming response was that I should call them again, which I did.
On my 2nd call I told them I had other relatives of Sima's who were at
Union Field as well. They couldn't initially find Sima again, but when
they looked up her daughter Katie DANZER, they found the both of
them together. I appreciate=0A everyone's help.

Warmest regards,Shari Kantrow

Where are 20th century NYC business records (registration, etc.) kept?
Are business tax records also public?

Are they available online? If not how does one get the actual records?

Thank you.
