HI

On Mount Zion cemetery in Queens, NY there is a section reserved for the
'Independent Order of the Free sons of Judah'.

There is a relative buried there >from a family who came >from
Lithuania/Poland to America.

Anyone know what this burial society refers to?

Thanks

Obtaining Petition for Naturalization Records in New Jersey #general

Sandra B Landers
 

I am trying to obtain the original papers filed by my grandfather, Max SHECHTMAN
who arrived in New York on 18 July 1904 aboard the S. S. St. Louis under the name
of Chaim SHECHTMAN. He lived in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with my grandmother, Sadie
and his two children, my father, Abraham and daughter, Sara until 1923. They then
settled in Garfield, New Jersey. I have a copy of his actual Naturalization
Certificate which was issued on 08 May 1925 by the Court of Bergen County in
Hackensack, NJ. which includes the certificate number, Petition Volume and Number.
The typed name on the certificate is: Max STECHTMAN. As far as I know our surname
was never spelled that way. I believe that this is a typo error.

I'm hoping that someone reading this posting can direct me to the right location
where I may obtain my grandfather's original papers for naturalization. I'm hoping
to find more information that may include the date and where he and my grandmother
were married. I have no information as to where they were married or when. I do
know that as of 1922 women were not naturalized through their husband's
naturalization.

Please, respond privately unless there is information that will be helpful
to this general listing.
I thank you in advance for any help you can give.
Sincerely yours,
Sandy Landers

Re: Contacting Lithuanian State Archives #general

Barbara Black
 

Dear Hugh,
I contacted the Lithuanian State Historical Archives last week using the email
address on their website. (I simply googled Lithuanian State Archives. They have a
great website with email addresses for the Lithuanian archives in Vilna, the state
historical archives, and the Kaunas archives, as well as providing information
about what is in each archive. The entire website can be accessed in English. )
This morning I received a reply, with a request for payment along with payment
instructions for a wire transfer. Since my bank will not send to Lithuania any
more, I simply went to Western Union online and requested that money be transferred
to their bank account, as per the Lithuanian archives' instructions. The fee for
Western Union was $5. It took less than 5 minutes and I paid by credit card.
Last year, I contacted the Kaunas archives about 3 Internal Passports and received
25 pages of information >from them (all digitally, so it was very quick). They not
only sent the passports (with pictures), but all of the supporting documentation -
it was a goldmine! All of my communications with the archives' employees has been
in English; the documents, of course, are in Lithuanian. Fortunately, I was able to
get them translated easily. You shouldn't need an intermediary, just a computer.
Best of luck in finding the info you're looking for.

some questions on how to do a cemetery photo project #general

Moshe Schaeffer
 

I have some questions on how to do a cemetery photo project
1. Who's permission do you have to get to do something like this?
2. Are there places to get grants or funding do such a project?
3. Where is the best place to learn about the best way to take photos of grave
stone weather they are horizontal or vertical? Any other information that any one
could pass on about such project would be very helpful.
Thank you for your help in this matter

[Iraq] [US] More on the Iraqi Artifacts Exhibit at the US National Archives #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

In early October I posted on this Forum about a then-upcoming exhibit at
the US National Archives on Iraqi Artifacts, "Discovery and Recovery:
Preserving Iraqi Jewish Heritage. The artifacts were found ten years ago by
US forces in the basement of Saddam Hussein's headquarters and were taken to
the US for conservation which took years. Due to the US government
shutdown earlier this month the exhibit opening was delayed. The exhibit
will now open November 8 and will run through January 5, 2014. For more
information please Google "Iraqi Artifacts Exhibit at National Archives" and
see a broad spectrum of postings including recent ones in Huffington Post,
Washington Post and other news outlets.
