Try going to key word: yellow pages. If they are listed, you'll be able to
click on directions.

Perhaps I could have been more helpful if you had stated where in NJ
is the Talmud Torah Cemetery. I mean, I live in Arizona.

Hope you find it.

Re: Subject: "Uncle" in U.S on passenger list? #general

I was very interested to see that other people have this same mystery. I
would be interested to continue hearing about other's people's experiences
with this, just to get some idea about how likely a family relationship
actually is between the immigrant and their "uncle"/"brother-in-law"/etc.
It would be interesting to come up with an "unknown
cousin/brother-in-law/uncle" list, to see if the names appear with some
frequency, and thereby discover if some of these people appear to be 'agents'
as was suggested in a previous post.

We just (last week) got the passenger manifest for my ggf's brother, who
arrived in NY in 1905. He was, to our current knowledge, the first of the
family to come to the US >from Belarus. His name appears in the Detained
Passenger List for the steamship Umbria, and the reason for detention is
"cous", which we take to mean that his "cousin," listed as Max Greenblat,
didn't pick him up until the next day.

The Greenblat name is, so far, totally unknown to us, and I am wondering if
this person could have been an "agent" who helped people immigrate to the U.S.
Is anyone else aware of an unknown relative on a passenger list named Max
Greenblat in Bronx, NY in the 1905 time frame?

Thanks!

On reading the solution to this problem given by the Feldmans, I realized
that I had misread what was required. My "solution" would not work in this
instance. But it is an example of how to use an IF statement to select data
out of alternate columns.

Re: Hannah ISRAEL #general

In the NY marriage certificates I've seen, the handwriting seems to indicate
that the forms were filled out by the person who performed the marriage. (I've
seen the names of the bride and groom mispelled <g> - My favorite misspelling
is one "Hery" for Harry, and "Manhaten". Say it out loud, and you've got the
NY Jewish accent in a nutshell.)

So maybe your rabbi forgot to ask, or just plain forgot?

Re SLATER #general

mgglass <mgglass@...>
 

Dear Jewishgenners:

I am searching for members of the SLATER family.

My grandmother Meeril KLEIN/KLEINER/PLATNICK had a sister (name unknown)
who married a builder with the surname of SLATER and they had a daughter
named Odessa.

Another member of the family was Ben SLATER and his redheaded wife
Mildred. Ben was a builder in Toronto; moved to Los Angeles probably in
the 1940's and about 20 years ago was President of the Toronto Club
there.

Thank you for reading this e-mail, and if the above sounds familiar
please contact me at mgglass@....

Re: Birth certificates #hungary

We always thought that my father-in-laws name was Harry (short for
Harold, we were told). When he passed away, my husband's step-mom found
his birth certificate and gave it to us. Not only did we discover that
his first name is really Aaron, but we also discovered that our last
name was originally Wallenstein, not Valenstein. Neither of these were
a misinterpretation either. His Hebrew name is Ari. Also, on the birth
certificate it states that his mother's name was Anna Cohen. His death
certificate states her name as Anna Port????
