I can't find a death record for death due to abortion. #general

Mark London <mrl@...>
 

Hi - I'm another person who can't find any evidence of someone who was
living in Philadelphia in the 1920s, and died >from a botched abortion.
No death certificate in the recently released Pennsylvania records, or
in any of the listings of the older Jewish cemeteries. Could someone
have totally hidden the death, i.e. by changing the person's name, or
simply not reporting it? How likely could that have been done in that
era? As a log shot, I'm going to also look into the possibility that
maybe she went over the border, New Jersey for the abortion, and died
there instead. Thanks. - Mark

Need help translating Russian documents #general

I have posted five Russian documents on Viewmate and would be very grateful
for help with translating them as fully as possible. The main surnames in
them are KALUSZYNER, KUSMIERSKI, KASZKIET and RZETELNY, but I can also see
other names I'm not familiar with. The town in which all the events took
place is Kaluszyn, Poland.

Searching: Sarah VOIHANSKY/VOICHANSKY from Belarus to West End Boston #belarus

prvs=040484493b=prvs=1404a8428a=dvi@...
 

Shalom,
I'm trying to find the descendants of my grandfather's sister when very few
details are known about her.
Apparently her name was Sarah and she emigrated >from Russia (Belarus) to the
U.S.in the year 1905. Probably lived in the Boston center maybe in the
West End? Her family name >from home was VOIHANSKY (VOICHANSKY) but
apparently her descendants do not know her last name before marriage. Her
father's name was Chaim . She was born between the years 1880 to 1885 and
probably moved to the U.S under her husband's family name (that I do not
know of). Probably thereafter other sisters came to Canada and to the USA.
During the war in the years 1941 to 1945 Sarah and her sisters were looking
for her brother who fled into Russia with his family.
If these details seem familiar to anyone please contact me.

CORRECTION - Translation Request (Yiddish) - Letter from Brooklyn - 1963 #belarus

(Sorry, wrong Viewmate links in my earlier post.)

Hi Genners,
I've posted a short 3-page letter that was sent in 1963
to Mrs. Rose Weisberg (my cousin's grandmother) in Pittsburgh.
We believe it's >from Mrs. Ida Kaplan (Rose Weisberg's cousin?)
in Brooklyn.

The Kaplan / Weisberg family history is a bit of a mystery to us,
so we'd be grateful to have the letter translated >from Yiddish to
English.

Re: The given name Sussman #germany

Ury Link
 

Dear genners

What Brian Stern >from Lexingyon, KY has written is correct, but if you
givind something >from the JewishGen database arcive, then please give
all what is written about this name Sussmann/Zusman/Zisman. In the
same page you find more explanation about this name and not only the
name Meshulam. For this name as a Kinui we have in this page more name
as Aziel,Elazar,Imanuel,Meshulam Yekusiel (Yekutiel) and Yoyl (Yoel).
But in other bookd are more names
given ,Eliezer,Alexander,Israel,Yitzchak,Moshe,Yerachmiel,Shneeor and Jehoshu.

We can said that the nickname (Kinui) Sussman (also Zisman, Zusman) is
like the Kinui Zelig a name that you can connect with more then one
name only. It is more then one explanation for this costume. I think
that in the archive of the JewishGen you can find maore about this name.

My sources are , the Divorce book "Get Mesudar" by Elazar Mintz
printed in Bilguria,Poland in 1902 and also in the book "Beith Shmuel"
an explanation of ther "Even Ezer" as a part of the Shulchan Aruch,
written by Shmuel son of Uri Feibush in the year 1689 in Poland. Best regards
