Re: DE JONA (DE YONA) family in Lviv (Lemberg) #general

Asparagirl <asparagirl@...>
 

Hi Isak,

Gesher Galicia has put many of the Jewish vital records for Lviv
(Lemberg) online for free searches in the All Galicia Database at
http://search.geshergalicia.org/ . Currently the database includes:

- Lviv Jewish Birth Records (1805-1871)
- Lviv Jewish Death Records (1805-1870)
- Lviv Jewish Marriage Records (1801-1866)

(These record sets are not 100% complete yet and will be updated
throughout 2013.)

I took a quick look at the data and I noticed that there were several
Jewish families listed in these Lviv records with similar names to
your YONA / JONA, including JONAS, JONNAS, JONES, JONASS, JANER, and
JOHN.

These names may represent the same family or small number of families
who had "creative" spelling variants -- for example, one person's
surname is listed as JONNER in one record and JONER in another,
another as both JOHN and JONAS, etc.

The names appear in some of the very earliest surviving Jewish vital
records in the city, including records I saw >from 1803 and 1805.
Granted, this is still 100 years after the time period you are
researching, but it is possible that these families are descendants or
relatives of your DE JONA physicians.

ViewMate photograph - Panevezys Hebrew Gymnasia 1927 #general

Segal, Aron <Aron.Segal@...>
 

I have posted in ViewMate at the following address
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM27328
a photograph of the 1927 graduating class of the Panevezys Hebrew
Gymnasia.

My father Zvi(Hirsh/Girsh) SEGAL is in the 2nd row, far right.

He was born in Zagare in 1909, went to the Zagare Folk School,
continued his education in Paneveszys and left for Melbourne,
Australia in 1929.

His lifelong friend, Shmuel (Mula) GOLDSTEIN, (right end of 2nd
row >from the bottom), also ended up in Melbourne in the mid-1930s.

Perhaps someone can recognise a relative in this photograph.

Still Desperately Seeking Sarah #unitedkingdom

suewelsh@...
 

For the last several years I have been seeking information about my paternal
GGM, Sarah KROGLANSKY/KRUGLINSKY/etc., (b. circa 1844) later Anglicized to
TAYLOR. She came to England >from Merkine, Lithuania probably circa 1892
(inconsiderately missing the census of 1891!) and likely lived with her
married eldest daughter, Brinah KARETSKY, at either 14 Wilkes Street, in the
Liberty Field of Artillery, or 14 Duke Street, in Spitalfields.

Sarah does not appear with the KARETSKY family in the 1891 census, where her
daughter's family was listed as CHURETSKY rather than KARETSKY due to their
strong Russian accents. Sarah's son, however, who lived with his
brother-in-law, and was listed as KRUGLINSKY. Sarah does not appear in this
census at all, and sadly, I have found no verifiable public records of Sarah
anywhere thereafter.

Sarah's last known "official sighting" was at the marriage of her daughter,
my grandmother, Rebecca TAYLOR (b. 13 April 1879) to Morris GRANET on 17
December 1905 at the United Synagogue in London. Sarah's name appears on the
ketubot in a manner that means she was still alive, whereas her husband
Simcha/Shimeon, was already deceased. Whether he died in Lithuania (then
Czarist Russia) or in London, England, we do not know.

On the 1901 Census, there is a listing for a Sarah Taylor and her two
daughters, Rebecca and Kate, at 5 Regal Place, in Stepney. I have never
heard of a sister named Kate, nor does her age seem to match any of the
known siblings, so I do not know if this listing shows my family member or
someone entirely different.

Can anybody help me find Sarah KROGLANSKY or TAYLOR (the Anglicized name) in
any records? I've searched cemetery records for both Sarah and her husband
as well as census records and haven't come up with a plausible match. Any
help would be appreciated.

Cause of Death and Death Certificates #general

Howard Orenstein
 

In 2009, Ira Leviton wrote to this list about death certificates:

" ... The cause of death on a death certificate is often inaccurate
anyway. Even as more and more has been learned about medicine, the
trend in the U.S. is for deaths to occur in emergency rooms, hospitals,
and nursing homes, and for death certificates to be done by emergency
room and "house" doctors who didn't know the patient before they died.
If they did, they were completing the form in a rush. And even if they
had all the time in the world, they wanted to do the form only once -
the cause of death as stated on death certificates is mainly for
statistical purposes, and if it doesn't fit into certain categories, the
Department of Health will require it to be redone."

The sad thing about Ira's comment is that the reporting has not improved.
A recent study cited by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
concludes:

"Most resident physicians believed the current cause-of-death reporting
system is inaccurate, often knowingly documenting incorrect causes. The
system should be improved to allow reporting of more causes, and
residents should receive better training on completing death certificates."
