"I've researched many sites and cannot find burials for certain Jewish

cemetery in Brody?

The "new" Brody Jewish Cemetery database is available for searching
on the All Galicia Database on Gesher Galicia's website and on JOWBR
on JewishGen. The data is identical in both locations. There is no
name "list," but you can search by name.

Gesher Galicia recently had the cemetery indexed and photographed,
but several stones were fallen. If this is the case, those names could
not be read, but the burial still took place. It is estimated that there
were over 10,000 burials at this location, but only about 5,500
headstones remain.

Also keep in mind that this is the "new cemetery," located in an
agricultural area outside of Brody's cadastral boundaries, and it was
in use >from 1834 - 1939. The "old"cemetery, located closer to the
town, was destroyed close to the time the new one was created or
thereafter. (A sports field is there now.) Some of the old headstones
were moved to the new location, but definitely not all. No burial
books remain. There are rumors of a third, very old cemetery,
perhaps near a synagogue, that once existed in Brody, but no traces
of that can be found.

On the Brody KehilaLinks page you can also find more information
about the cemetery, but the fact is that certain headstones are
either gone, damaged, or in such bad condition the inscriptions
can't be read, which is why you may not find ancestors you are
seeking. Info on an earlier project in 1996 can be found here:

http://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/brody/brody_cemetery_project.htm

Keep in mind that these names were incorporated into the newer
Brody cemetery project.

Searching the Brody vital records database on the All Galicia
Database for births, deaths and marriages might also help to fill in
the blanks.

And here is a link on Gesher Galicia's map room that shows you the
old Brody cemetery location in detail:

Re: bessarabia digest: December 17, 2013 #bessarabia

Yefim,

I know Bronshtyn (or Bronstein as we Americans write it) was a common name
in Argentina because I too have family of that name that went there from
Bessarabia and I have been doing some research >from the US. My
grandfather's much older two sisters (born Lev) married two Bronstein
brothers and went to Argentina in the 1880-90s. I believe there was also a
brother(?) who came to the US.

I'm wondering whether your Bronshtyn and mine might be related as your
Spivak family and my Lev came >from the same area (southern Bessarabia).

Dear Mario,
Interesting story, especially because one of my distant relative left for
USA or
Argentina in 1904 together with my great grandfather Shloyme Spivak... my
Shloyme did not like it, and returned to Bessarabia, but Bronshteyn (do
not know his first name) remained in the new world, divorced his wife (had 2
sons in Bessarabia), moved >from Argentina to Chile, and in
1928 invited one of his Bessarabian sons Meir to Chile. I remember when
Meir visited Kishinev in 1968.

There are probably many Bronshteyns in Chile now... but they used to live
very close to Akkerman, Bessarabia……….

Searching for researcher Max Bloch who posted on Ancestry.com #general

jel <jel@...>
 

I am trying to contact a researcher named Max Bloch. I do not know where
he lives or how old he is, nor how he is related to the family whose
tree he posted at Ancestry.com.

The tree that Max posted to Ancestry contains a significant and exact
overlap with a family to which I am connected by marriage. I contacted
Max through Ancestry, sending him my personal email address and asking
him to write me there instead of at Ancestry. I am hoping that we can
compare/share notes on the family -- Friedlaender, >from Glogau, Germany
in the 18th century -- but have not received a response. I've checked
the JewishGen family finder and do not find Max Bloch there researching
the Friedlaenders or any of the other names in this extended family.

Am hoping that someone in the JewishGen population knows of this
individual and can provide some information that I can use to contact him.

Searching for an M. ROTH #general

Hi,

I finally was able to connect my great-great grandfather to the people
I believed to be his parents in NYC, who I had long had circumstantial
evidence pointing towards this. On my great-great-great grandmother
Sima NADLER and her daughter Leah Lizzie/Louise NADLER's emigration
from Iasi to NYC in 1898, they listed an M. Roth "Son-in-law" as their
contact in NYC and he was living at 1852 2nd Str. I am at a total loss
as to how to proceed and find him.

If anyone has any ideas or who might be connected to this family,
please contact me.

Cartography Update for the Gesher Galicia Map Room: Eastern Galicia Ethnographic Map 1939 and more.... #general

Pamela Weisberger
 

Dear Genealogical Mapping Enthusiasts:

Newly added to the Gesher Galicia map room at: http://maps.geshergalicia.org :

Eastern Galicia Ethnographic Map 1939

This is a demographic map of the ethnic populations of southwestern
Ukraine (historic eastern Galicia) created in 1953 by the Association
of Ukrainian Former Combatants in Great Britain, estimated from
various data sources for the beginning of 1939. Circle sizes scale to
village and town populations, squares to cities, and colors indicate
the proportions of Ukrainians, Poles, Jews, and other populations in
each. The original paper document is in the extensive map collection
of Harrie Teunissen and John Steegh, who provided Gesher Galicia with
a digital scan and a copy of the introductory notes (pdf: 13MB); an
excellent summary of this text is included in their online exhibition
Jewish history on the map.

The direct link to the map is here:
http://maps.geshergalicia.org/special/east-galicia-ethnographic-1939/

Link to the original introductory notes (PDF file):
http://maps.geshergalicia.org/special/east-galicia-ethnographic-1939/text.pdf

The web site of Harrie Teunissen and John Steegh is also well worth a visit.
http://siger.org/

Here, among other things, you'll find an absolutely fascinating
presentation,"The Holocaust in Contemporary Maps," delivered at the
international workshop "Geography and Holocaust Research," held in Bad
Arolsen, Germany last year, is available here:

http://www.siger.org/holocaustincontemporarymaps/

And "Jewish HIstory on the Map" (a 2009 exhibit >from the Netherlands
showing Jewish history on maps >from the 19th - 21st centuries) is
available here:

http://siger.org/jewish-history-on-the-map

This exhibit contains maps ranging >from the Venice ghetto, mellah of
Marrakech, synagogues in Salonika and Strasbourg, to the Jewish
Diaspora, Jews in New York, and the Warsaw Ghetto 1940.

Back to our own site, the "specialty maps" section of Gesher Galicia's
map room (scroll down) offers a Jewish population density map of
Galician Districts >from 1910, and a climatic map >from 1899.

Thanks to Jay Osborn, Gesher Galicia's map room coordinator, for
pursuing maps valuable to genealogists wherever in the world they are
and getting them in shape to go online.
