Re: Looking for information about Blotnia #galicia

"I'm having some difficulty in finding information about a place in
Galicia called Blotnia (alternatively, Blotnya or Bolotnya or
Bolotnia).

"Blotnia is not listed in Gesher Galicia's town directory. It was
apparently a place with a very small Jewish population. It's still on the
map today, just a little to the northwest of Narayev, Ukraine. I would
be grateful for suggestions as to how I might be able to find some
basic information about it, such as its population, industries, history,
and so forth."

Although we don't have every Galician town in Gesher Galicia's
directory yet, it was part of the Przemyslany administrative district and
that's where the Jews worshipped. If you want to find out more about
the town, I suggest you consider starting a "Galician Archival Records
Project" for the town. Our projects are "town centric" and even though
the vital records might have been registered in a different locale, the
cadastral community records (property/landowner records, the
Franciscan census, a listing of damage during WWI by family, and
cadastral maps) all would be categorized under the town name in
various archives in Poland and Ukraine and could yield a great
deal of information in these "alternative records." In the project we
first do inventories of what records exist, then start digitizing or
indexing records. To read more about how to start a project, which
requires start-up funding, go to our informational page:

http://www.geshergalicia.org/projects/garp/

You could also find the Geographical Dictionary of the Kingdom of
Poland's entry describing the town and have it translated into English.
(There are some English translations, done by different Polish
genealogical groups, but not for the majority of towns yet.) You can
read more about the dictionary here:

You can find it online here:

A how-to PDF file is here:
http://www.polishroots.org/LinkClick.aspx?fileticket=pcfmobrIo2Y%3D&tabid=61

You will need a special plug in to view it or... the LDS microfilm with
the town's entry is 920957.

Gesher Galicia welcomes new projects for even the tiniest of Galician
towns... and we've had great success getting information for these
places.

Good luck!

Yizkor Book Project, July 2014 #general

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I am pleased to note that in July the Yizkor book Project saw the completion
of no fewer than 3 projects, bringing the number of our finalized projects
to the outstanding milestone of one hundred such projects.

The projects that were completed in July were:

- Kamyanyets, Belarus (The People Who Lived Among Us) - prepared and
submitted by Sherwin Sokolov
- Serock, Poland (The book of Serock) - coordinated by Sandra Krisch and
Dorothy Lipsky
- Sierpc, Poland (The Community of Sierpc; Memorial Book) - coordinated by
Howard Orenstein and Israel H. Mida

To say that the work of these people is remarkable would be rather an
understatement and my sincere thanks go out to them for their dedication
and persistence coordinating these projects. I hope that their success will
encourage the coordinators of the many other projects that we are running,
to press on with their particular project, leading it through to its
successful completion.

Each of our Yizkor Book projects, like any endeavor, begins with a few small
steps and this past month, the first "footprint" of the Soklowa Podlaski
Yizkor Book Project was placed online. In the near future, a Translations
Fund will be set up for it and will appear with our other 75 funds already
appearing. These funds allow you to help support these important projects -
every donation is a small (or large) step towards seeing more and more of
the translations appear online.

Now to facts and figures for July.

encourage the coordinators of the many other projects that we are running,

successful completion.

suggestions for finding documents on relatives i just found out about #germany

Lin <lin2@...>
 

Last week I received a document (familieregister) of my great great great
grandparents Gronum ROSENBERGER and Blum OETTINGER ROSENBERGER. I told
some of my relatives about it and sent them the scan I received.

Then I was just told by 2 relatives that a family related to their
daughter, my great-great grandmother Jette ROSENBERGER BUEHLER came
to the U.S in the early 1940s. I'd never heard before of anyone
knowing any of the ROSENBERGER relatives. According to my mom's
first cousin, Julian ROSENBERGER, his wife Cornelia "Nelly" ROSENBERGER,
and their son Gustav "Gus" or "Guss" ROSENBERGER came into New York in
the early 1940s for a short time and then went to Chicago. The family
name was changed to ROSS.

Our two cousins do not know the exact town in Germany these people
came from, but it was one around where the rest of the family lived.
My great-great grandmother was >from Oberdorf, other family members
lived in Noerdlingen, Eberstadt, Markelsheim, Kleinerdlingen, etc.

One of the cousins sent me photos of these people and I would say
Julian and Nellie were at least the age of my grandparents or older
(they were born between 1889-1895) Cornelia looks younger than her
husband, but not tons younger. Their son looks older than my parents
in the photos which are dated. Maybe he was born in the 19 teens.

One of the cousins who told me about these relatives said that she's
almost positive Julian told her that his father (name unknown) was
the brother of my great-great grandmother Jette ROSENBERGER BUEHLER.
The family register shows that there were 3 sons that may have lived
to adulthood to have children, Abraham ROSENBERGER, Samuel ROSENBERGER,
and Loew ROSENBERGER. One may have been Julian's father .

I have checked every way to Sunday on Ancestry.com [ * ]
for any of these 3 family members; Julian, Cornelia "Nelly"
and Gustav/Gus/Guss Rosenberger/ Ross. I have tried various googling.

I would love ideas >from the experts on finding these folk. The
photos my cousin sent to me were taken in America in 1958 of Gus
and Nelly and Julian in Miami Beach, one of just Nelly and Gus at
Lake Louise, Canada in 1963 (so I assume Julian was deceased, but
it's possible he took the photo.) Another photo in Miami Beach in
1972 of Gus and Nelly, and one of Gus and Nelly in Spain in 1972.
Evidently Gus never married and I was told it is believed there
are no other Rosenbergers related to them alive at least in the US.

Does anyone have any ideas for finding any documentation of these folk?

Best wishes, Lin Herz, Palm Bay, Florida lin2@...

Yizkor Book Project, July 2014 #germany

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I am pleased to note that in July the Yizkor book Project saw the completion
of no fewer than 3 projects, bringing the number of our finalized projects
to the outstanding milestone of one hundred such projects.

The projects that were completed in July were:

- Kamyanyets, Belarus (The People Who Lived Among Us) - prepared and
submitted by Sherwin Sokolov
- Serock, Poland (The book of Serock) - coordinated by Sandra Krisch and
Dorothy Lipsky
- Sierpc, Poland (The Community of Sierpc; Memorial Book) - coordinated by
Howard Orenstein and Israel H. Mida

To say that the work of these people is remarkable would be rather an
understatement and my sincere thanks go out to them for their dedication
and persistence coordinating these projects. I hope that their success will
encourage the coordinators of the many other projects that we are running,
to press on with their particular project, leading it through to its
successful completion.

Each of our Yizkor Book projects, like any endeavor, begins with a few small
steps and this past month, the first "footprint" of the Soklowa Podlaski

wrong on the Alemania website as Judengasse.

I accessed the BUEHLER family-trees to see whether there was any

relationship to find another family >from the same tiny place is stirring.

I did email Lin personally to discuss the parallel universes in
which our families must have lived. In fact, one of her family was
married by my father's great-uncle Rabbi Pinchas KOHN.

Keep up the good work, GerSIG! Regards-

However, the date is not long after a distant relative got married and
his wife was Jette HAUSER BUEHLER. Benedict "Benno" BUEHLER was a horse
trader and may have had the money to buy more silver to match their
silver service. I am hoping someone out there is related to Benno and
Jette Buehler, as this postcard is in Jette's handwriting. I only wish
it was my Jette BUEHLER as it would be thrilling to me to have something
with her handwriting.

Sephardic SIG #Sephardim Could ALGAZE family from Constantinople be related to ALGAZE family from Izmir? #sephardic

Barbara Algaze
 

I have been researching my husband's ALGAZE family for over 20 years; there
were three brothers who came to the U.S. in 1909, 1910 and 1911. The family
lore (backed up by multiple U.S. sources) all indicate that they were >from
Constantinople/Istanbul. Family lore (with *no* sources) says that there
were additional brothers who did not come to the U.S.

I have recently found another ALGAZE family whose patriarch came >from
Smyrna/Izmir to Argentina about the same time frame and am wondering if
anyone knows what the possibility might be of the two families being
related? While we have the names of the great grandparents, the other
family does not, so it is almost impossible to know if they had the same
parents.

Does anyone know of any records that might exist that would help us go back
one more generation?
Possibly >from Istanbul, Izmir or Argentina?

Any thoughts on this subject would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Newark, NJ Old Cemetery Records #general

Susan Kobren <president@...>
 

Genners,
In response to Rusty's post, let me set the record straight for
anyone looking for information regarding the Newark, NJ cemeteries.
Alice Gould, our JGS of North Jersey member, and her late husband
Bob, initiated the indexing of the Newark cemeteries many years ago.
Since most records have since disappeared and most areas are
dangerous to visit on your own, Alice arranged for police protection
many times for our North Jersey Society and other volunteers to go
down to Newark and index the headstones. Most of that data is
uploaded to JOWBR.
The Jewish community does arrange for police protection the Sunday
between Rosh Hashanna and Yom Kippur. However, there are over 30,000
graves in all of the non-contiguous cemeteries. Unless you know the
exact location, chances of wandering around and finding a headstone
is slim.
Raiken Epstein is the caretakers of many cemeteries in north New
Jersey. I am hoping that the number given to Rusty for help was
Alice's as they know about, and have cooperated with, the indexing
project. If not, you did not get all the information available.
For Alice's email and to read more about the cemeteries, including
maps, go to the following page on our web site.
http://www.jgsnj.org/newark-cemeteries.html
As Alice's "techie" friend, I also have copies of her data.
If anyone needs more information, do not hesitate to email me.

Thanks to all for the responses on records for formerly-active Newark,
NJ cemeteries. Several people expressed interest in the results, and
for anyone researching people in the Newark area or New Jersey
generally, I've summarized what I learned through various phone calls
and email responses. If anyone has further detail or different
information, please do not hesitate to provide corrections or
additions.
Cemeteries maintain a few types of records. They have a ledger that
typically contains the burial date, the burial location and perhaps a
few other bits of information, and they have a "transit certificate"
that contains perhaps the place of death, the date of death, the
doctor's name, the funeral home name. These are general guidelines -
different cemeteries and different time periods had different pieces
of information, and in early years, the transit certificate was often
discarded after burial without a copy being made first.
It appears unlikely that a cemetery would have any records that would
list family information such as the decedents' relatives, parents,
place of birth, obituary, carefully labeled photos of the extended
family in Ukraine together with birth dates and a short but insightful
paragraph of biographical information, etc.
Once the cemetery ceases operations, its records are transferred
somewhere. Because a cemetery is a private enterprise, records are
never transferred to the state archives. Instead, the state looks for
a private entity. In the case of the Grove Street Cemetery in Newark,
NJ (and for many others), the records were adopted by Raiken Epstein
Memorials, Inc. (908/245-7100). They promptly transferred my call to
a helpful woman who looked up the records (and in my case, found
virtually nothing).
I hope this is helpful. Again, any additional detail or corrections
would be welcome.

Preserving Document? #general

Varda Meyers Epstein <yknowus@...>
 

My mother handed me an envelope that she said contained some sort of
document >from her mgf. I opened the envelope and there was crumbling
paper inside. i was really afraid to handle it. It's my ggf's
citizenship document I think, and I could see a date, 1892.

The document had been folded many times and the paper was brown along
the folds and the document had separated wherever it had been folded
so it is now in several separate squares.

What should I do to piece this document together without completely
destroying it?
