"New" Summit Cemetery NY - grave photo request #poland

Marla Raucher Osborn <osborn@...>
 

Dear fellow researchers,

I recently learned the grave location for my grandfather, David
RAUCHER of Przemysl, Poland. As I am currently living outside
the U.S., I am wondering if anyone who plans to visit the "New"
Summit Cemetery in NY in the near future would kindly please
shoot a photo of his grave for me? I understand it is in
Schoharie County, NY, located just south of Summit on Route
10. The grave information is as follows:

David RAUCHER
Date of death: August 22, 1975 (burial date unknown)
Lot 162
Deed 280
Purchaser: Mary Ann Raucher on 08/26/1975

Thanks for any and all help!

Best regards,

RAUCHER/RAUSHCER and KESTENBAUM >from Przemysl (Poland)

MODERATOR NOTE: Although duplicate effort is unlikely in this
case, as a general rule, it is good to communicate with the
person making the request before visiting a cemetery -- to be
sure that someone else has not already responded.

Looking for archives in Israel, finding children born during the Shoah, Shulman, Sztarkman #poland

Sabena Stark
 

Dear cousins,

I'm planning to travel to Israel this spring to meet family
members I discovered through pages of testimony submitted
to Yad Vashem. While I'm in Israel, I hope to continue my
research at Yad Vashem and other archives in the country.

Nearly all of my family perished during the Shoah. My parents
came to the US in 1946 having lost everyone, including their
first children. I've been fortunate to find some records of my
father's family (SZTARKMAN) but no success locating records of
my mother's family (SHULMAN of Podwoloczyska, Ukraine),
either pre-WWII or during the war.

My mother was liberated >from Auschwitz, as was my father,
at the end of the war. I have written to ITS and received some
records of my father but not my mother or her family. She
was away at school when her mother and sister were
murdered during the mass killing of Jews in her town. My
grandmother's maiden name was MOYSIK (not at all sure of
the spelling). My mother remained in hiding but was captured
with her young daughter late in the war. Her daughter was
murdered, I believe, when my mother was taken to Auschwitz
or possibly another concentration or slave labor camp.

Can anyone recommend archives (besides Yad Vashem) that I
could visit in Israel that might help me find records of my
mother's family? Or any other sources?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Minsk-Maraw passport translation #poland

Marilyn Okonow
 

The passport page here lists a birthplace for Estere-Laja
EJBUSZYC, born in 1900, emigrating to France in 1929. Does
anyone recognize the Polish (or it could be French) name of her
birthplace and her profession? I think it says Minsk but can't
figure out the second word. It looks like Marow or Maraw and I
have been unable to find anything in JewishGen Townfinder. I
know there was a famous rabbi EJBUSZYC and Estere is a relative
but not sure how. The passport is in both Polish and French.
Thanks-

Many people asked me about the Polish Medical Questionnaires found
in JRI Poland. I advised several people where to find information about
them, but people are still having trouble locating them, so here is the
direct link to the page that will answer all questions about the
Questionnaires. I hope this is helpful.

Looking for archives in Israel, finding children born during the Shoah, SHULMAN, SZTARKMAN #general

Sabena Stark
 

Dear cousins,

I'm planning to travel to Israel this spring to meet family members
I discovered through pages of testimony submitted to Yad Vashem.
While I'm in Israel, I hope to continue my research at Yad Vashem
and other archives in the country.

Nearly all of my family perished during the Shoah. My parents came
to the US in 1946 having lost everyone, including their first
children. I've been fortunate to find some records of my father's
family (SZTARKMAN) but no success locating records of my mother's
family (SHULMAN of Podwoloczyska, Ukraine), either pre-WWII or
during the war.

My mother was liberated >from Auschwitz, as was my father, at the
end of the war. I have written to ITS and received some records of
my father but not my mother or her family. She was away at school
when her mother and sister were murdered during the mass killing of
Jews in her town. My grandmother's maiden name was Moysik (not at
all sure of the spelling). My mother remained in hiding but was
captured with her young daughter late in the war. Her daughter was
murdered, I believe, when my mother was taken to Auschwitz or
possibly another concentration or slave labor camp.

Can anyone recommend archives (besides Yad Vashem) that I could
visit in Israel that might help me find records of my mother's
family? Or any other sources?

Thank you in advance for your help.

...My mother wrote the following phrase at
least 30 years ago: "Menasche Skolnick, a famous Jewish entertainer was
a cousin to my grandmother - I used to listen to him (with my
grandmother) on the radio".This has to have taken place in the 1930's.
My greatgrandmother's name was Jachwed (Jennie) SKOLER STEIGMAN. She
arrived in the USA in 1906 >from Krasilov, Ukraine. She is listed as
Jachwed Steigmann on the ship manifest. Now I am wondering: I've
always researched Skoler for her relatives, but maybe it was really
SKOLNICK?Are there any descendants of this Jewish entertainer out
there? Any little help will be appreciated.Best wishes to all!
