Where in New York did my relative go? #poland

Apollo Israel <apollo@...>
 

Hello everyone,

I recently found a document that indicates that a previously unknown
rother of my great-great-grandmother went >from Poland to New York via
Antwerp early last century. The document, which comes >from the so-called
"Belgian police files" (indexed in one of the large commercial sites),
is in French and dated 1908, and states that his foreign address
("foreign" being outside Belgium) was "93 Pietstreet, New York,
America." It does not give the name of anyone he might have been going
to at that address.

The handwriting on the document is very clear and I am sure I read the
street name correctly. So, I tried Googling "Piet Street" New York, but
that
turned nothing up. I did find a Pitt Street in Manhattan and looked at it
via Street View, but do not know if that is the right street. There don't
seem to be any signs of Jewish life in the area now, and, in fact, there
is now a Catholic church and school right where no. 93 would have been.

Thanks to Steve Morse's excellent ED finding tool, however, I managed
to find the Pitt Street pages in the 1940 U.S. census, and realized that
it must once have been a very Jewish area, as there were many Jewish names
there then. However, there were no names similar to my relative's or his
wife's at no. 93 or elsewhere in the street.

I also searched JewishGen's and JRI-Poland's various databases very
thoroughly (including JOWBR and Family Finder and every other possible
JewishGen database) but found nothing. Similarly, I searched the U.S.
immigration, naturalization and census records online (in the big
commercial sites), and various grave-finding websites, but also found
nothing. I also tried Facebook and U.S. directories to find people with
that surname, but couldn't find anything likely. I did get some hits
for people with similar names, but other details (widely differing
dates of birth, for example) eliminated them.

So, at present, the only lead I have to this relative is this doubtful
street name ("Pietstreet," which may or may not be Pitt Street, Manhattan)
from the Belgian document. I'm stumped. I would welcome any suggestions on
how to proceed!

For those interested, the document names my relative as Sender KRYSKA,
rn inn 1873 in Sieradz (son of Juda KRYSKA and Reisel GABELSKI) ,
husband of Fanie GENKOWSKY (born in 1882 in "Belgartow, Russia").
It was not clear >from the document whether Sender was in Antwerp on
his own or whether his wife was with him.

Thanks in advance,
Miriam BULWAR DAVID-HAY,
Raanana, Israel.

Topic: "The Name Remains the Same: Adventures in Finding Sid Caesar's
Grandmother"

Guest Speaker: Robin Meltzer

After Sid Caesar passed away in February 2014, hundreds of press reports

on their arrival >from Austria. Careful research proved that the family's
surname remained unchanged >from the time they lived in Galicia. This
presentation will explain the search techniques used to find the embarkation list
and passenger list for Sid Caesar's grandmother and how others can apply
these methodologies to their own research.

Robin Meltzer is the V.P. of Communications for the Jewish Genealogy
Society of Greater Washington. She is the assistant producer of "Stories >from
the Syracuse Jewish Community". She has written several articles on Jewish
Genealogy and local history for the Jewish Observer of Central New York and

Re: Mt. Hebron cemetery, Queens, on-line info #general

Hanna Grossman <hannakg@...>
 

A dozen people have very kindly answered my question and directed
me to the cemetery's searchable own site.

On this site I find that one of the brothers I am researching Irmin
(or Irwin) E. COHEN who died 9/26/1977 and is buried in section
81-5-10-20 has a woman, Arline Cohen, who died 1/28/1991, buried
next to him in section 81-5-10-21. It seems reasonable to think
that they were man and wife, but the ItalianGenealogical Group shows
no marriage for him, nor does any other source I can find.

So, I am reduced to hoping the gravestones provide more information
and that someone will be willing to look at these stones for me.
Section 81 is right along the Van Wyck if that helps.

Irmin's brother, Bertram is buried at 81-5-9--3 , without a woman
near him.

Their father Gus, and mother Bertha, are both buried in 81-5-PP11-1.
The section also has 9 other Cohens whom I cannot identify but who
may be related to Gus. Since it is Berta (b. ESSINGER) to whom I am
related, I am not concerned, unless they are young enough to be the
children of Irmin or Bertram.

If anyone can look at these stones and provide more information, I
will be grateful.

Hanna Grossman

MODERATOR: Please contact Hanna directly before venturing out to the
cemetery, to avoid unnecessary duplication of effort.
