Re: Maramaros Jewish Births; Need Hometown Clarification #hungary

Many thanks to all the help I received on the subject question.

It seems that Gacs was a older name for Galicia.

Deena Whitman checked the original records and determined that the
transcription could be improved. Town name appears to be Jagielnica, Galicia;
now in Ukraine.

Re: Information Sent - Jewish Cemetery Novi Sad Serbia (formerly Hungary) #hungary

dandarooney@...
 

I was searching for information on the grave of my grandfather. I thought
he might be buried in the main Jewish cemetery in Novi Sad, Serbia (formerly
Hungary) since my family had a long history there. I had a photograph of his
grave that was my mother's. He had died in 1924. I saw pictures of the
cemetery on-line and saw that it appeared to still exist and to have similar
grave stones to that in my picture. I emailed the Jewish Community at
jonovisad@sbb.rs (an email address I found on-line). I received a reply
from Vera Ungar, Secretary of the JC Novi Sad. She wrote in perfect
English. She looked up my family >from the information I had sent in my
inquiry and sent me information that I had not known. Furthermore she went
out to the cemetery the following week and found my grandfather's tombstone
(still standing after 90 years!) and sent me pictures of it. The most
heartening part (and surprising) was that carved under my grandfather's name
and date, was the name of my aunt. She had been lost in the Holocaust.
Thought her body is not there, her spirit rests with her beloved father. My
uncle probably had her name inscribed on the marker.

Ms. Ungar says she will be happy to assist others as she can. Some of the
graves are no longer standing or decipherable. But, she is extremely helpful
and kind. Though no payment was requested, I sent the cemetery a donation
in the name of my family

Thank you,

Angie Rooney

Photos of 2 Gravestones in New York City #general

JAY PAUL <jpaul54@...>
 

I have tried to get volunteer photos via the usual routes (e.g., FindAGrave)
without success, and was wondering if someone would be willing to go to Montefiore
Cemetery in Queens (at 12183 Springfield Blvd.) to take digital photos of the grave
stones of my great-grandfather and great-grandmother (Markus and Sallie KAHN) at
Gate 340/SW, Block 78, Row 1, Graves 1RC & 1LC, Plot 5. (I don't know if it helps
in terms of locating the graves any further, but the burial society's name was
Temple Bnai Sholom of Rockville Centre, and they were buried 1942 & 1943.)

I am hoping to further my research by getting the name of my GGF's father's name
from the Hebrew inscription on the stone. No one in the family seems to know the
names of that previous generation in Ranstadt, Germany. It is only a hope, as his
death certificate lists his father's name as "unknown" and mistakenly puts his
wife's name down for his mother's name.

I know that this is a terrible time of year to make this request, but would
appreciate anyone willing to undertake this when possible.

Sincerely,
Jay

ViewMate translation request - Polish #general

Dave Strausfeld <davestra@...>
 

Dear Jewishgenners,

I've posted a document in Polish for which I would be grateful for a translation.
I only need a small amount translated. The document is a description of a town
called Narajow (today Narayev, Ukraine). The main thing I'm interested in knowing
are population figures: how many Jews lived in Narajow? how many Poles? how many
Ukrainians? If there is anything else specifically about Jews in Narajow (I doubt
there will be much), that would be nice to know too.

The document has 3 pages and it is on ViewMate at the following addresses.

p. 1: http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM36813

p. 2: http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM36814

This full-color map of the entire town shows the large market square and
concentrated residential area surrounded by fields of several types and
ownerships, plus two outlying hamlets, interlaced by roads and small
creeks. The town center also features a prominent synagogue, two
church/monastery complexes, a Catholic cemetery, and a lovely depiction
of the 17th century Jewish cemetery as public gardens. Images for this
map were provided to Gesher Galicia by the Archiwum Panstwowe w
