Jewish Heritage Journey #general

Thought the group might have an interest in a story I wrote that ran this past
Sunday in the Louisville Courier-Journal. It details the spiritual journey I
took with my twelve-year-old son back to our Hungarian Jewish roots. It was
an early Bar Mitzvah gift. The link is here:

JewishGen has made such a huge difference. It has made the research behind
such a trip possible!

Over the years, I have created several Web sites on Hungarian and Slovakian
towns. Just my small contribution and way of saying thank you.

Here's a link to the Abridged Instructions to Enumerators, Govt. Form P-103:

Here's a link to the 1940 Census, which includes the Census of Housing, the Census
of Population and Housing, the Census of Agriculture, and a bunch of others,
such as Business, Minerals Industries, etc.:

I have discovered that there is a second page to the 1940 US Census. This
page is about Housing. It is entitled -- Occupied Dwelling Schedule.

This schedule asks questions about the Characteristics of the structure;
Characteristics of the dwelling unit; and Financial Data for each
owner-occupied non-farm unit...

How can this Housing Schedule be accessed? Searching the ED provides
access only to the Population Schedule.

In a personal Db of some 21,000 Jewish surnames in medieval Spain till

I was wondering if anybody of you know if the old Jewish

exists. Are there any grave stones left after the devastations

Oscar/Osher & Fanny EISENBERG: Pinsk --> Booklyn #belarus

Oscar/Osher & Fanny EISENBERG: Pinsk --> Booklyn

I am searching for the family of my great great uncle Oscar/Osher Eisenberg

He was born circa 1873 in Pinsk Belarus to Shaya Mordecai & Esther
Eisenberg, and was married to Fanny/Fiege (1880). Oscar migrated to the US
in 1905, followed by Fanny and 2 children in 1907.
They were the parents of:
Max (Shaya), Pinsk, 1900-
Rose (Rachel), Pinsk, 1905- (not showing on the 1930 census)
Sam, NY City, 1908-
Sara, NY City, 1913-
Jack, NY City, 1916-

Oscar died on March 19th 1936, and is buried in Beth David Cemetery, Elmont, NY

No Eisenbergs are listed on the 1940th census for the address on the
death certificate.

RELATED FAMILIES: Oscar Eisenberg's brother in law Max Welder/Wexler
(Source: Oscar's ship manifest). Cousin Harry Bronstein (1887-)
(source:1910 census). Oscar's sister Bracha & her husband Ishai (Israel
Yehuda) Adler, Tel Aviv (my ggparents), and my great aunt Elisheba Gordon
of NY

I have found ship manifests, and the 1910-1930 federal census records, as
well as Oscar's death record.
Any information on the where about of Oscar Eisenberg's descendants, or
other family members, will be greatly appreciated!
