In German, “Onkel” is anybody >from the previous generation, and
“Neffe”anybody >from the next generation. So a second or
third cousin once removed would be an “Onkel” or a “Neffe”

This differs >from English usage, where uncles and nephew are always
closer than first cousins. It is very well possible that somebody >from a
German background would use the terms Uncle and Nephew according to the
German usage of “Onkel” and “Neffe”,
even when writing in English.

Family of Mr. P. Brauner who lived in Tel Aviv in the 1960s #general

Howie Rotblatt
 

I am hoping to find the family of a possible relative. I recently found an
old invitation list >from my Bar Mitzvah. One of the invitees on the list was a Mr.
P. Brauner (his first name was not given), who lived on Rechov Balfour in Tel Aviv,
in the mid 1960s. I have never heard of him before. I am guessing that he was
either a relative, or a friend of my father's >from Lodz, Poland or the Landsberg
DP Camp. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Translate marriage and death records? #general

Seeking translations of the marriage and death records for my sixth-generation
ancestor Perla SZTOKBAND >from Warsaw.

The 1881 death record, whose image is online at
https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/72/200/0/-/16/skan/full/Cc3vV45pvk6ETm7Wqgq2KA
(#103, upper left, in Russian), appears to give her mother's name as Nacha.

The 1825 marriage record, whose image is online at
https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/72/187/0/-/53/skan/full/5jiLj76uG-zMROeTH65Btg
(#93, left side, in Polish), appears to give her mother's name as Hinda.

Is there any way to resolve this discrepancy?
Is Perla's maiden name present in the marriage record?
Is the groom's mother Witla shown with a patronymic or maiden name?

(Ukraine) Preliminary Field Report 2016-2018 on Jewish Cemeteries in Ukraine #ukraine

Jan Meisels Allen
 

A report, Jewish Cemeteries of Ukraine: preliminary results of studies for
2016-2018 was published by the Vaad Association of Jewish Communities of
Ukraine. The dates of burials and epitaph transcriptions, size and number
of matzevot were determined. The information will be entered into an
electronic database and made available to the public.

The 2016 work was done in 30 sites around the Chernivtsi region.
The 2017 work focused over two expeditions around Ivano-Frankivsk and
Ternopil. Some 101 objects were surveyed in 52 settlements: 53 Jewish
cemeteries and 48 mass grave sites. In 2017 the research focused on specific cemeteries: Buchach-with over 1,000
headstones with the earliest dating >from 1587; Burshytn; Berezhany.

The report is available at:
