viewmate headstone translation #general

Toby Bird
 

Dear Genners,
I have posted a photo of my mother-in-law's mother's headstone on viewmate. She
died in 1916 and this small black and white photo has been handed down in the
family. We can decipher her name: Eidel Korn written at the top and Hinda Eidel
Korn written toward the bottom. We would like as much else translated as possible.
She died in Pabianice, Poland and I am assuming that she was buried in a (the?)
Pabianice cemetery. Does anyone know what happened to the Pabianice cemetery(ies)
during and since the war?
Thank you in advance,

marriage record #general

Steve Pickoltz
 

I'm trying to find a marriage record or a divorce record for a Fanny PICKHOLTZ to a
nameless MILLER. This would have taken place around 1900 to 1920. In 1900, Fanny
would have been 18 and possible living at the Jewish farming colony of Alliance.
In the 1920 Census, she is listed as living with her mother, living in Phila., Pa.
and using the name Mrs. Fanny PICKHOLTZ divorced. Her Reading, Pa. death
certificate of 1936 also says divorced and only list her husband as MILLER.

When and where they married as well as divorced is the mystery. Most places I have
tried, need more info than what I have above to do any kind of searching, either
marriage or divorced.

I've tried counties in South Jersey, Trenton, and Phila., Pa. with no luck.

Does anyone have a suggestion as to where to turn?

Ehrenberg and Gilbo/Gilpin #ukraine

I am trying to find information about my maternal grandparents. 
Morris Berg (born Ehrenberg) came to the US in 1905 with his mother,
brother, and two sisters.  Two other sisters had come here earlier. 
My mother said he was a cousin of some unknown distance to the Russian
author, Ilya Ehrenberg.  I have found him in the 1905 US Census, living
in Philadelphia.  However, I can find no record of his arrival, nor have
I found his naturalization papers or marriage certificate.  Neither he
nor my grandmother got a Social Security card.

My grandmother came >from Kirovograd, then known as Yelisavetgrad.  She
arrived in 1908 and I can find no record of her arrival either. 
Additionally, there is an issue with her maiden name.  My mother said
it was Gilbo, which Mom gave on her SSA application and on my
grandmother's death certificate.  My mother's birth certificate shows
it as Gilpin.  I have someone doing some research in Kirovograd now
and hope to get some resolution.
