2019 JewishGen conference in Cleveland (3) #general

Yefim Kogan
 

Hi everybody,

this is my third message about the conference. You probably know by now
that for me Cemetery projects are most important among any other projects
we are doing. The reason is simple, the cemeteries are disappearing...
Because of that I went to a number of events related to cemetery
reconstructions, grave indexing and a like.

==West Side Cemeteries Tour (Monday). I do not have anyone in my family
buried in Cleveland, but I was interested to talk to cemetery caretakers
- Jewish Federation of Cleveland, and see how the graves are maintained
and fixed if needed. We visited cemeteries >from the very old to a modern,
some located in what used to be Jewish neighborhood and others are located
in non-Jewish area, where Jews never lived. I was really surprise to hear
that in such cases the non-Jewish communities are taken care of the
graves! I hope that in Bessarabia/Moldova similar can be done. I also
like to drive many miles throughout town into many different places, which
I would never see myself.

==Jewish Cemetery Restoration in Eastern Europe, meeting/dinner (Tuesday).
I decided to join this group to learn methods of reconstruction Jewish
cemeteries and graves. Most of attendants were interested in Poland and
followed "Projects of The Friends of Jewish Heritage in Poland". I asked
people several questions:
1) if we know that a cemetery existed in a place, and was completely
destroyed, and now there are houses built on that location or it is now a
potato fields, What to do with such places?
2) If a writing on a grave is almost destroyed, how best to clean it,
being able to read it.

I received many interesting replies and hopefully some of them we could
use. If you have any ideas, please let us know too. I would be glad to
hear you. After the conference Jeff Miller who was an organizer of that
event, created a Facebook group called "Friends of Jewish Cemetery
Restoration in Eastern Europe".

==How to Improve Data for JOWBR (JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial
Registry) (Thursday), presented by Madeleine Isenberg. It was
interesting to hear how other people are working at the cemeteries
projects.

Please let me know if you have any questions, ideas. It would be great
to hear >from you.

All the best,

I am searching for family of Solomon Zavell, born c. 1873 in Grodno
Gubernia. I believe that in the 1920's, the name was changed >from ZAVELOFF

A violinist for the NYC Metropolitan Opera Orchestra in the early 1900's as
well as being a philanthropist. He had had three sons, Arnold, Lawrence and
Jessie.
I am searching for them as I believe that they may be related. If you have
an contact information, please respond privately to the email address below.

researching maternal grandparents Simon and Fannie Ellman from Odessa #general

Steve Nissenson
 

Hi all, I am new to this site, but have been working on this tree for
3 years and still come up with a dead end at this point. They were
first cousins, and married in Odessa and came here in 1905 and settled
in Chicago.Her maiden name was Masonzjnic. I sadly have no older
generations to ask about this, and cannot seem to find any more
information. Does anyone have an idea to research further? I am very
curious to get to the point that I see that they were first cousins.
I did not have this trouble on my father's side....he was born in
Petrokov, Poland in 1911 and I was able to go back further in time.
Thank you, Steve Nissenson, Pacifica, CA

DINNERSTEIN #general

Sheldon Dan <sheldan1955@...>
 

I am trying to connect two branches of the DINNERSTEIN family. My
wife's grandmother's sister, Anna DINNERSTEIN, married Solomon GROSS.
Her daughter Sarah GROSS married Morris BERGER, and one of their sons
was Joseph BERGER.

On the other branch, Avrum Yaakov DINNERSTEIN married Pesha Bella
SHEPSENWOHL. Their son Maurice Jonah DINNERSTEIN married Emma COHEN,
and their daughter was Shirley DINNERSTEIN. Shirley became the wife
of Joseph BERGER.

I was told that Shirley and Joseph were third cousins. If I understand
this correctly, Avrum Yaakov and Anna (and therefore my wife's
grandmother Gussie GLICKMAN) would be first cousins and their fathers,
Henoch Dovid DINNERSTEIN and Chaim (Herman) DINNERSTEIN, would be
brothers. I would like to be able to prove this. If anyone has
information regarding this family, please let me know.
