Illinois Rosemount Park Cemetery request #general

Miriam Eguchi <miriamj@...>
 

If anyone is visiting Rosemount Park Cemetery in Illinois and has some extra
time, I would very much appreciate it if photos could be taken of three
gravestones. The graves are adjoining or very close to each other.
They are located in Section 5 Lots 14 & 15.
The names are Mary Brestin, Sam or Samuel Brestin, and Anna Stone.
I would also appreciate transcriptions of the full inscriptions on the
gravestones if they are not clearly readable in the photographs.
If you can do this, please let me know in advance to avoid doubling in case
someone else also offers.
Thank you.

Sandra & Donald Hirschhorn <sdh2381@...>
 

Dear Susan,

Your letter came as a complete shock to Don and to me. JewishGen without
Susan King is impossible to imagine. Just last summer I remember saying to
you that I missed your e-mails since we no longer run the JewishGenMall.
What can I possibly say now?

We both wish you the very best at whatever project you decide upon next and
thank you for JewishGen. The Jewish world would not be the same if you had
not come along. I can only hope that thought warms your heart a little.

Best always,
Sandy and Don Hirschhorn

Mt Nebo cemetery, Miami Florida request #general

Thomas Lerman
 

I just found that an aunt passed on about a year ago
and believe she is buried in Mt. Nebo in Miami Florida
with a couple of other relatives. Since I leave out
West, I am not able to visit. If anyone is willing and
able to get digital images of a few headstones, please
contact me privately for details. I did not find any
Miami volunteers at RAOGK.

Thank you,
Thomas Lerman

SIG Chicago2008 luncheon #austria-czech

atbreuer@...
 

Dear Friends/Moderator:

I recall reading that an independent luncheon gathering for the Austria/Czech SIG
group at the Chicago conference was mooted. I am just registering for the
conference and haven't found any formal mention -- but perhaps this is just an
insider's gathering...? Since my husband, Tom, and I would also like to attend
the Wednesday Hungarian SIG luncheon and this is our first conference, I hope very
much that we can do both. We live in suburban Chicago and are very excited at
this opportunity on our doorstep and indeed, look forward to meeting everyone and
attending the fascinating lectures and presentations.

So count us in, but whom do I need to inform? Can I be of any help on the ground,
being local?

Regards,

Alyson Breuer
Northbrook, IL


Re: ports for Vienna passage to U.S. #austria-czech

Barbara {Weintraub?} writes: "My father had come >from Vienna in 1937 and
arrived in either New York or New Jersey, definitely not Ellis Island. Does
anyone have any suggestions on how I can begin to find a passenger list for
him?"

We must assume Barbara's father was called WEINTRAUB, but a first name, date of
birth, occupation, likely travelling companions are essential data for any
sensible search.

If you need help please give as much information as possible to help us. I have
WEINTRAUB travelling to the USA in 1937 but how can I tell if they are the
right ones?
