Date   
my "faceless" grandfather #belarus

Marlene Bishow <mlbishow@...>
 

Not to refute the ramblings of our fearless leader, but, some time ago, I
documented the Wolpa plot in Mt Zion Centemtery in Queens. In that plot,
there were four ARKIN graves (Not the ones that Jeff was looking for), but I
did send that information on to Jeff privately.

I also mentioned to him that I have about 40-50 photos of tombstones in that
plot. (I have plans to donate them to the cemetery project). I am writing
this here because in that cemetery and in that burial society, there was a
custom of putting a photo on the tombstone. This aspect of this cemetery is
documented in a book that is sold at the Mt. Zion office.

My computer is on the fritz, but once I am fully back on line, I will check
the photos that I have >from the Wolpa plot and I will notify the readers of
this digest which photos of stones include photographs of the deceased. This
is one of the more unusual places to locate a photograph of a deceased
ancestor.

Perhaps someone else can add to what I have written, although this really
does not have anything to do with Belarus.

Hallo all LatvianSIGers,

Is there an online map of Latvia that I can access? I am looking for the
whereabouts of three places. Friederichstad, Courland, Latvia, Chesnik
(Jesnik) Latvia, and finally a place nobody has ever heard of called Niara,
Latvia. Is there a place called Niara? I am working on a family tree for
a family called COWAN (name change >from SCHNEIDERMAN/SHNEIDERMAN ) and I
believe that there is a researcher with the name HORELICK researching
SHNEIDERMAN >from Chesnik, Latvia. If he is part of this list, please
could he contact me at either the address on this email or angi@...
Thank you.

Friedrichstadt is now Jaunjelgava and if you go to the Latvia SIG
webpage and look at the map you will see it. Follow the river down
from Riga towards Daugavpils. Naira is the same place and was just
another name for it.
http://www.jewishgen.org/latvia/

Chesnik is a little more difficult. Perhaps Chesniki in the Ukraine.
72km SE of Lviv.
There is Jesenik in the Czech Republic122km NNE of Brno
Jezena in Belarus not on modern maps. Was in Nowogrodek Province.

Just some thoughts.

Anne,

For Niara, you might try Lithuania. There are two D-M matches in
ShtetlSeeker, one of which (NAIRIAI) is very close to the Latvia-
Lithuania border.

Rav Eliyahu Horodesky #galicia

Rav Juda Gershon Pikholz wrote a lengthy eulogy for Rav Eliyahu Horodesky av
bet din of Drohobycz who died in 5644 (1883). He refers to him as kin, and more
specifically "shelishi beshelishi im avi." - that is, his father's second cousin.
The eulogy appears an appendix to his book Hiddushei HaGershunni.

Does anyone have information on how these families might be connected? Rav
Juda Gershon's father was Israel-Yoel ben Pinkas and Sara-Rivka and his mother
was Jutte-Chana, daughter of R' David-Zeev (Ashkenazy?) of Lwow.

Re: Gen 101: What to do with SSNs? #general

Nachum Tuchman <nachum@...>
 

Hi,

There have been many posts about SSN applications. The archives may
help you find other information.

For $27 you can get a photo copy of the original application. Go for
the application and not the other option, the name of which
eludes me, even though it is $2 cheaper. There are places for date of
birth, place of birth, parent's names and mother's maiden name. There
is nothing on immigration data. There is also information on address
and place of employment.

However, applications were not necessarily filled out completely or
correctly. On my maternal mother's parent's applications
I did get their mother's (my GGM's) maiden names, as well as the 'exact'
(on the assumption that they are correct) town of birth,
and birthdate. On my father's father's application, I got less
information. >from the handwriting, and the fact that my GF barely
spoke English, I am certain that my late aunt filled out the form, and
had my GF sign it. The signature matches my GF's signature on his
petition for citizenship. It has unknown for my GGM's maiden name, and
a birthdate that is different than that which appears on my GF's
petition for citizenship.

To order an application, go back to the website that you used to find
the Soc Sec #. There is a link to download and print a letter
requesting the original application. The address to send the request
to, in Baltimore, I believe, is on the top of the letter.
