ViewMate translation request - Polish #general

Robert Schnapp
 

Hello,

I have posted 4 vital records in POLISH for which I would appreciate
translations. They are on ViewMate at the following addresses:

http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/viewmateview.asp?key=54743
http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/viewmateview.asp?key=54744
http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/viewmateview.asp?key=54741
http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/viewmateview.asp?key=54742

They are really two sets of two pages that should be read side by side.
They are a Polish registry of two families in the LERER line.

Thank you,

Robert Schnapp

Ostrowiec Jewish cemetery #general

henry wellisch
 

A few days ago I came across an article by Oded Aderet in the Israeli
paper Haretz about the visit by Mr. Meir Bulka to his ancestral town
of Ostrowiec. He discovered that the Jewish cemetery there had been
liquidated in the 1950s after WW II and the stones had been used to
construct a wall around the Catholic cemetery. Attached to the article
in Haaretz there is a photo showing part of the wall with Hebrew
lettering clearly visible on some of the stones.
When Mr. Bulka went to see the mayor about this and suggested to recover the
stones, the mayor agreed but only for a payment of half a million Zloty. Since Mr.
Bulka claims some property in Ostrowiec he feels that he has some bargaining power.
Frankly I have no personal relation to Polish Jewry, I am an Austro-Hungarian, but
I am wondering if this is the 1st time this has happened in Poland or other places
in eastern Europe? This is certainly quite upsetting.

Offering Montefiore Cemetery Springfield Queen Visit/Photos #general

A. E. Jordan
 

I am going to be helping someone with a visit to Montefiore Cemetery in Springfield
Queens early this week and since I am going I wanted to offer if anyone else needs
assistance at this individual cemetery please contact me.

I will only be visiting Montfiore on Springfield Avenue in Springfield Gardens,
Queens, New York but if you need a grave photographed I should be able to do it..
Of course priority has to be for the person who asked for the visit and since time
will be somewhat limited, plus it can be difficult move around the cemetery, I can
only do a few graves. Plus I am at the mercy of the office to help me locate the
graves and >from experience I have found out these offices are not as helpful when
you show up with a list of 30, 40 or 50 graves. (I have tried.)

This will be similar to my NYC look ups where I appreciate a few dollars to help
off set the costs and I will take a digital photo and email it to you.

Montefiore has a database of internments on its website but please be certain it is
your person that you are requested and not a general search for a name. For
example there are 82 Harry Cohen graves in their database ... so please no "cousin
Harry died in Queens" so could you look for me requests.

(US-MA) Jewish Heritage Center Addition to Digital Archive #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Jewish Heritage Center which is located at the New England Historic
Genealogical Society announced an additional 6,000 records to their digital
archive. There are a total of more than 1.2 million documents that have
been digitized and on the website. These records are predominately >from the
Records of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) Boston Port and the
Boston Jewish Times (1945-1992). They also created online finding aids for
four collections:
.The Chevra Kadusha of Boston Records
.The Israel Numismatic Society Records
.The Labor Lyceum Association of Brockton
.The Laymen's Institute Records

To read more about the digital archives see:
https://ajhsboston.org/digital_archives/

If you go to Tips and Tricks for Navigating the Digital Archives,
https://ajhsboston.org/2013/07/16/tips-and-tricks-for-navigating-the-digital-archives/,
the link they placed for going to the OCLC WorldCat does not work, but if you go
directly to http://www.worldcat.org/ you will be able to create a free account on
WorldCat which you will need if you wish to submit a reference request to the
American Jewish Historical Society-New England Archives (AJHS-NEA).

To browse the AJHGS-NEA go to: http://cdm15869.contentdm.oclc.org/cdm/ajhs/
For example, The Jewish Times (Boston) collection is based on a weekly
newspaper >from 1945-1992 which is open to researchers and no user name is
required. It covered much of the same ground as The Jewish Advocate but is
another perspective on events impacting the Jewish community. This
collection may be browsed by volume it is not a name search collection.

To visit the Jewish Heritage Center see:
https://www.americanancestors.org/jhc. This is a collaborative effort
between the American Jewish Historical Society and the New England Historic
Genealogical Society. In 2015 the New England Archives of the American
Jewish Historical Society were permanently deposited at the New England
Historic Genealogical Society.
