Re: Name "Gnendel" #general

If you search on the archives, for Genendel and maybe
Geneshe (various spellings of both are possible) you'll find a
long and interesting thread about the meaning of the names,
including, I think, some varying opinions.

I remember this because Genendel is my Yiddish name, too.

Seeking middle name in Hebrew #general

natrab@...
 

Morris Jacob BIENENSTOCK (Moshe Yaacov), who married Fannie (Fayge)
PLATZMAN was a founder of Beth El synagogue in Borough Park, NY.
Their son, Arthur Herbert Bienenstock, passed away recently in NYC
(May 3rd), aged 96.

Arthur Herbert Bienenstock was born in Borough Park., Brooklyn, NY.
He attended the Etz Chayim Yeshiva.

His children know that he was called Aharon ben Moshe Ya'acov haLevi,
but think they are missing a middle name in Hebrew to correspond to
Herbert.

Where might we find his full Hebrew name (if there was a "middle" name, too)?

Thanks for any suggestions/answers.

One possibility to consider is that he was not allowed into the USA.

Usually at the end of the passenger manifest for any ship there is a
listing of the people who were detained or sent back for one reason
or another (e.g. convicts, other people deemed unfit). So I don't know
if you'll find anything but it's worth scrolling to the end of the
passenger manifest and looking at those last pages.

Hi,
do any of these surnames sound familiar to you? I have a document, and
the surname (written in Russian) is not that clear. It look like it's
Dishman. However, I don't know if there are Jews who carry these
names. The other variations also could fit (Dishmok, Dilman and
Dilmok). Best regards

Viewmate Russian and Polish translations needed #ukraine

Hi,
I uploaded three documents to Viewmate. Two are written in Russian,
and one in Polish. They are all >from the town of Siedliszcze in Poland
and pertain to the Grosskopf family. One of the ones written in
Russian is a birth record, and what most interests me is to decipher
the mother's (whose given name is Rukhla) maiden name. The maiden name
starts with a D, that's all I can get >from reading as I barely know
Russian.

Thanks a lot, any help will be useful.

Tiraspol Cemetery project #ukraine

Yefim Kogan
 

To Bessarabian and Ukrainian researchers:

Last week I wrote to you about two Dubossary projects... and today is
another project for the town of Tiraspol, which was a district town in
Kherson Gubernia, and now is in Republic of Moldova, Transnistria
self-proclaimed territory.

This is a cemetery photographing/indexing project, and we started it several
months ago and hope it will be ready in a month.

First I want to thank our volunteers:
Dena Whitman
Julia Lombardo
Tsvetana Spasova

For the great work they did, who worked hard with lists and images of the
stones to translated and verify that we have correct records.

We have now about 2200 records and almost 2000 photographs.

I also would like to thank the elderly person who lives in Tiraspol and
agreed to make photos for us. It is a very hard job to make his way in that
cemetery (and in many other too). Some parts of the cemetery is covered
with trees and bushes and it is almost impossible to see the gravestone and
make a photo. Now we need to pay for the photos, and we did not collect yet
enough money for that!

Please make donations for Tiraspol Cemetery project. Donate $25, $50, $100
or more to Tiraspol Cemetery Project. Go to JewishGen.org / Donate /

Zalaegerszeg Jewish Cemetery info and Burial Records #hungary

ezwieback@...
 

Iam looking for burial records for the Zalaegerszeg cemetery, Zala
County, Hungary, for 1909.

I understand thecemeteryis well-maintained (with a Jewish Cultural
Center in Zalaegerszeg ; with no website ?).

See
http://bronfmancenter.org/blogs/restoring-memory-eastern-europe-david-krantz
I did contact David Krantz but he could not provide any additional info.

Odd that there is virtually no info in IAGJS Cemetery project listing or
at Lo-Tishkach.org (the lack of web info is curious).


So far, I have not found anyone with info about the burial records.

Appreciate any help on this.

I believe that the present police headquarters in Mukacheve occupies
the same building in which the planning of deportations >from the
region took place in April 1944.

The street is now named Str. Jaroslav Mudriy. However, I am anxious to
discover its name in 1944. Can anyone please suggest a potential
source?
