The record you need is the Record #74 on page 33 of http://www.lvva-raduraksti.lv/ru/menu/lv/7/ig/7/ie/3417/book/27918.html

It states that on July 14 (Av 18 of the Hebrew calendar) bachelor Ruvel-Mowsha son of Hirsch-Meyer Glas >from Suboch had married
maiden Sara-Hana daughter of Hirsch Firk >from Popelyan. Groom's age was 24, bride's age was (also) 24.

Wedding performed by rabbi's assistent (written: "the same" and in the previous record #73 it's written "rabbi's assistent")

Rivka Schirman <capitetes@...>
 

To all those who have been asking where the 1921 census
books can be consulted online - you need to copy and paste
the whole very long URL in your browser; clicking only on the
highlighted part won't do):
http://statlibr.stat.gov.pl/F/
2LAP2AI56SPKQAASXPJVU2AKUJFHGC6J2SV8R9BJPTR9RNLHIM-48818?func=full-
set-set&set_number=144744&set_entry=000001&format=999

or use the shortened way there:

http://tinyurl.com/7h5y4o8

The books of the 1921 census for the following provinces are
available online:

Bialystok
Kielce
Krakow
Lodz
Lublin
Lwow
Nowogrodek
Polesie
Pomorskie (Pomerania)
Poznan
Stanislawow
Tarnopol
Warsaw
Wilno
Wolyn

Only the book for Silesia is missing.

The URL given will open with the first book in the series (that
of Pomorskie aka Pomerania), to navigate to other books, click
on the blue arrow 'Nast. Rekord' on the upper right corner. To
consult the book itself, click on the first pdf icon-link on the
list to have the full book.

Reminder - these are only statistical abstracts of the
population of each Province. No personal records or details
are contained, but (and a big but it is) they contain each and
every little inhabited location within each province with the
exact number of inhabitants by religion and by national
(ethnic) group and the administrative status of each such
location in 1921. Careful though, there were administrative
reforms later on and some of the counties moved >from one
province to another, especially in east-Galicia.

Enjoy.

I have recently found some interesting things.
People on one side of my family had married into the other side of the
family on my Fathers side with out anyone connecting up the relationships.
To make it more interesting My Parents who were both >from far towns in
Poland and met in Vienna also had another family connection.
I found out that I have a the labeled Aspergers which I think should be called
Evelyn's since it was discovered many years after I had it.
I also found it in a few people on both sides of the family along with
Factor 11. Where I should have 256 gggggrand parents I have 140 which means
plenty of cousins married cousins many years ago and today also.
Anyway I thought I would share with you some of the interesting things I found
out.

Re: burial of a suicide #general

Larry Gaum
 

From: Dick & Martha Forsyth <@MarthaF>
I did try some variant spellings of "Davinsky" (and completely omitted a
first name in the cemetery search) - stilll nothing.

Jewish persons who committee suicide are not permitted to be buried in
holy ground with other observant jews. They are either buried on the
outside perimeters or inside but close to a surrounding fence or wall.
Interesting enough, your "Mt. Carmeil" cemetery doesn't sound very jewish.
It sounds very christian in fact and may even be catholic. If the person is
a suicide, I would try to get information >from police records in Brooklyn
in 1922. There surely was an investigation over his death.

they firmly deny all knowledge of him.

Several possibilities. First off the on line databases are not totally
accurate. Call the cemetery to be certain.

Sometimes the family says in the moment we will bury him at X and then
they realize they meant Y. I have seen a number of certificates in
New York where the place of burial turns out of be different than where
the person is. Occasionally the family later disinters the person but
most often it is a mistake when they went to fill out the certificate.
Usually this is solved by checking other family members burial details
and you find the missing person with the other family members in an
alternate cemetery. You can also check the New York Times or a local
newspaper to see if the family put in a paid death notice/obit.

As for suicide burials some societies insist the person be buried
off at one corner of the plot or some societies buried people always
facing towards Jerusalem or the Western Wall and for suicides they
insisted on a "breech" i.e. put them facing away >from everyone else.

I don't think I have seen any instance in New York where a society or
cemetery totally turned away a burial because someone committed suicide.
But in many cases the family also tried to prevail on the authorities
to list an alternate cause of death. I know of an instance where a man
hanged himself and the cause of death was listed either as mental illness
or depression.

It was scandalous to many families to have a suicide and they took steps
to conceal the details.

Burial of a suicide? #general

Martha Forsyth
 

Thank you to the many kind souls who have found Wolf Davinsky (d. 20 Feb
1922, buried the following day) on findagrave.com
But, sad to say, that doesn't help. Although that IS the Wolf Davinsky
I'm looking for, the memorial page was put up by the person who got me a
copy of Wolf's death certificate and so far New Mt. Carmile Cemetery
(whom both of us have called, me with the actual copy of the death
certificate in hand) has been unable to find him there. The woman even
searched by death/burial date (and did not mention the child Florence
Divinsky who was buried there about the same time - no relationship that
we know of).

So I"m still looking. My next step is to send the cemetery a copy of
the certificate, and see if that will help in any way.

My original message:
I have in hand a death certificate for a Wolf Davinsky,
who jumped >from a 6th floor roof to his death in Brooklyn, NY
in February of 1922. Death certificate specifies that he was buried
in "New Mt Carmile Cemt" on 21 Feb 1922. However - a search for
"New Mt Carmile" cemetery leads me insistently to "New Mount Carmel"
Cemetery in Queens/Brooklyn, and they firmly deny all knowledge of him.
On a hunch, I tried simply "Mount Carmel" cemetery - nothing comes up
via their web page, either (I have not tried calling them). I did try
some variant spellings of "Davinsky" (and completely omitted a first name
in the cemetery search) - stilll nothing.

Might it have made a difference that he was a suicide? Still - he had to
have been buried SOMEWHERE, and SOMEONE should have records for it.
Suggestions?
