Grave photograph request - Clifton, NJ #general

Russ Maurer
 

I am seeking a volunteer to photograph a single grave at King Solomon
Cemetery (now known as West Ridgelawn Cemetery at King Solomon
Memorial Park) in Clifton, NJ. Contact me privately for specific
details and to avoid duplication of effort. I understand this is not
the best time of year for such a request and would certainly
understand if it cannot be done until the weather warms up. I will be
happy to reimburse incidental expenses (tolls and the like). Thanks
in advance.

Canada Research: #general

Moishe Miller
 

Dear Group, Perhaps someone can offer me some guidance. I am a novice
when it comes to Canadian Research. I am looking for detail on Nissin
Yokel SCHWARTZ (aka Shwarz or Svartz), born in "Russia". He came to Canada
around 1948 as a widower. His late wife, Sarah Haimovici (c1880 - 1935),
was >from Botosani, Romania. Nissin passed away in 1962 and his final
resting place is Saint-Sophie, QC. I have a picture of his tombstone and
it does list his father as Yakov. How can I learn more about Nissin,
his ancestry and where he is >from in "Russia"?

The family name Gompertz or Gumperts get out also >from this names.

This names where used in the region what is called 'Nieder Rhein=E2' in
