Re: Christine Usdin and volunteers #latvia

I am not going to wade into the whole debate on databases other than to say
we should be grateful for what we have and I think the idea of charging is
totally against the spirit.

However the issue of volunteers is a sore point because a lot of people
talk a big game but when the time comes are not willing to truly give of their
time or follow through on their promises. I realize people lead a busy
life but the spirit is of helping each other.

Christine's efforts are nothing short of wonderful because she has been so
giving of her time. She has asked nothing in return >from anyone other than
to use and enjoy the data.

I tired to get a massive project completed of over 5,000 graves here in the
USA of the Kurlander societies. I have the raw data, the pictures, the
templates. On numerous occasions I asked for volunteers willing to spend
their time looking at the pictures, translating the Hebrew >from the stones and
proofing the data. Very very few people were willing to give of their
time to do this task and others took CD's >from me of the data and were never
heard >from again.

Result I backburnered a massive amount of data. I spent a lot of time
(and my own money) visiting the cemeteries, photographing the stones, getting
copies of the plot maps, etc. and loading it to the data templates. Some
day I will get back to it (I hope).

This taught me an important lesson about being willing to share and support
each other and doing what I can to contribute to the greater effort. It
should not all be about taking or how much money can you give but it should
be about being supportive and giving of time to help advance the greater
good here.

I completely agree. I don't know yet which town in Lativa my

Christine's work. But what an amazing resource. I'm blown away by

Thank you all.

The above-cited organization is a burial organization with graves in Beth David

Meler, Meller, Nuler Family #lithuania

Joan Kramer
 

Hello,

I haven't had much luck in finding proof of my great great
grandmother's maiden name. Her married name was Shifra Ella MELER, wife
of Shlioma Haim MELER. He was the son of Mordkhel MELER , who was the
son of Daniel MELER.

I have found a record on Jewishgen which shows a Mordkhel NULER, with a
son, Nechemiash NULER. Nechemiash's daughter was Shifra. But I don't
know if that NULER family is the same as the Mordkhel MELER family.

Does anyone have any information about the MELER and/or NULER families?
Are they indeed the same family?

I am also still trying to find information about the widow of my great
uncle, Daniel MELLER, in South Africa. Her name was Dora RUBENSTEIN
MELLER, and she is shown as the surviving spouse of Daniel MELLER when
he died in December, 1918 in Johannesburg. Did Dora re-marry? Did she
remain in South Africa? And what became of her and Daniel's two
children: Solomon/Solly MELLER, born 1906, and Sophie MELLER, born
1910...both in Johannesburg? Did they stay in South Africa, marry and
have children? And where is Dora MELLER buried? And where are Solly and
Sophie buried?

By the way, Daniel MELLER, was the youngest child of Shlioma Haim MELER
and Shifra Ella. Daniel was born in about 1872 in Lithuania. He added
an L to his last name when he emigrated to South Africa (SAR) and became
a naturalized citizen of SAR. He died at age 46 and is buried at
Braamfontein Cemetery in SAR. I have his Death Notice, Death
Certificate, and many records about his business, which was picture
framing. The business was called "MELLER and SHURE". (SHURE was his
sister's husband, Harris SHURE, who was my maternal great grandfather.)

I would appreciate hearing >from anyone who has any information about
the MELER or MELLER or NULER families. There are also connections to
the following families: GORDON, MESSIE, ENDLIN, SHUR/SHURE,
RABINOWITZ, ABRAMOVITCH, LEVIN, COHEN/KAGEN, HUREWITZ, CANN, FINK,

was described as a Nurse and Watcher To The Sick in the
1871 and 1881 census. His wife, Julia/Judith (b.1827) was a Sextoness

Betsy NIEUVENDYK (b.1825), who passed away in Whitechapel, March reg, 1904,

Has anybody researched Levy and his family or know which

Evelyn married Werner SCHUHMANN and had Marion in 1957 and Jacquelyn
