There was a wonderful movie some decades ago, "I love you Rosa" based on a
true story in the Sefardic commumity of Jerusalem at the turn of the
century.

The custom of marrying the widow of your brother who had
not produced a child was alive and well in Nezhin Ukraine (a town
under significant Lubovicher influence) through World War I. These
marriages do not appear specifically noted in the marriage records,
but they are specified in the divorce records when the parties part.

"Black Bread Disease" #general

CharlesPottins
 

Regarding the query about "Black Bread Disease", I could not find this term
on the internet, but I would hazard a guess that it might have been referring
to a form of ergot, a fungal infection which particularly affects rye flour,
and hence black bread, under some conditions.
The chemicals it produces cause intoxication, illness, a burning sensation
in the limbs(St.Anthony's Fire) and often convulsions (hence St.Vitus Dance)
among humans who unwittingly consume the contaminated bread.
In the past there were major outbreaks in places in Europe, the most recent
known being at Pont St.Esprit in southern France, in August 1951, when 300
people were effected who had all eaten bread >from the same batch.
If the convulsions were severe enough that could be the cause of death.

cemetery near Port Chester, NY #general

Sharon R. Korn <s.r.korn@...>
 

Thanks to the many people who made suggestions regarding a cemetery near
Port Chester, in Westchester County, NY. It turns out that the cemetery in
question is the Riversville Cemetery, a Jewish cemetery in Greenwich, CT,
just over the state line. This apparently is the same as the Glenville
Cemetery. I am not sure if Glenville is a section of Greenwich. It remains
to be seen whether or not the death certificate belongs to my
great-grandmother, but identifying the cemetery is a step in the right
direction.

Is there a reason it is whited out?
After some year (sorry, I've forgotten which year), New Jersey does not
release cause of death information.

Now that there are diseases that are perceived to bring shame on the
deceased, there is more reason for protecting the privacy of the
survivors. Unfortunately, that means that even "benign" causes have to
be hidden.
