JOWBR Milestone: One Million Records #poland

Joyce Field
 

JewishGen is pleased to announce that the JewishGen Online Worldwide
Burial Registry (JOWBR) has now reached a milestone. With the
current quarterly update, this searchable database exceeds one
million records! We have been able to accomplish this feat because
of donations of data and photographs >from hundreds of individuals and
organizations. We also want to thank the translators who assisted by
translating the inscriptions on photographs of matzevot and entering
the data into our template. In addition, as many of you know, JOWBR
could not function without Nolan Altman, Max Heffler, Michael Tobias,
and Warren Blatt.

Following are the number of records added to each country in the past
quarter. There are too many cemeteries and landsmanschaft plots
covered in this update to enumerate. The total number of cemeteries
in JOWBR is now 1,929, and total number of burials is 1,006,675.
New burial records by country follow:

Belarus: 392
Canada: 15,993
Germany: 1,214
Hungary: 28
India: 104
Moldova: 3,410
Romania: 246
Ukraine: 968
USA: 10,074

As you travel this year and visit ancestral towns or towns in your
current country of residence, please consider recording data >from the
Jewish cemeteries and/or photographing all the tombstones in the
cemetery or landsmanschaft plot for JOWBR. Following are the web

Greetings,

I am searching for decedents of Joseph Kessler (Kaczka). He was my GM’s
Roses’ brother. Joseph was born in Stepan about 1885 and immigrated to the
US about 1905. He was married to Bertha and had 2 daughters, Adele born 1915
and Gussie born 1918. He appears in the 1930 census. He died young in his
40s.

Zwantchiker Podolier Young Men Benevolent Association, Max AUERBACH and sons #general

Nurit BenZvi <nurit07@...>
 

Dear Genners,
In continuation to my message posted April 15, I would like to add some new
information regarding Max AUERBACH, that I just got >from a Genner in California.
1 - According to the Souvenir Journal of the Zwantchiker Podolier Young Men
Benevolent Association, >from 1939, one of the founders was Max AUERBACH who
initiated the Zwantchiker Podolier Young Men, in October 1913.
2 In that year, 1913, Max must have been 35 years old, because his passenger
record, found at the Ellis Island archive, indicates that when he immigrated to the
US, in 1904, he was 26 years old.
3 Max AUERBACH had two sons, Phillip and Ben, the former who was the older, joint
the Zwantchiker Podlier association in 1935.
4 Max AUERBACH lived on 636 East 5th street, Manhattan, in 1913, where the first
meeting of the association took place (according to the Souvenir Journal, mentioned
above).
5 He is buried in Mount Hebron Cemetery.

I would like to ask first, how do I confirm (or reject) the possibility that this
Max AUERBACH is the brother of my grandfather, Maier (or Meyer-Moritz) AUERBACH?
And, second, anyone knows anything about his two sons? I will appreciate any idea
or suggestion sent to my private mail.

Re: Jerusalem birth records #general

Asher <aarbit@...>
 

David,

Your quip that "some things never change" is not appropriate here. In the US
census, the country of birth is listed, not the city of birth. Jerusalem is the
name of a city that was located - in 1910 - in Palestine. Technically, it would
have been correct to write "Turkey" instead of "Palestine".

Crossed-out city names like this are a valuable gift to genealogists! I have seen
things like "Shepetovka" (which is very useful to me)crossed out and replaced with
"Russia".

Jerusalem was crossed out and overwritten "Palestine." some things never change.

of donations of data and photographs >from hundreds of individuals and
organizations. We also want to thank the translators who assisted by
translating the inscriptions on photographs of matzevot and entering
the data into our template. In addition, as many of you know, JOWBR
could not function without Nolan Altman, Max Heffler, Michael Tobias,
and Warren Blatt.

Following are the number of records added to each country in the past
quarter. There are too many cemeteries and landsmanschaft plots
covered in this update to enumerate. The total number of cemeteries
in JOWBR is now 1,929, and total number of burials is 1,006,675.
New burial records by country follow:

Belarus: 392

Germany: 1,214
Hungary: 28

JewishGen is pleased to announce that the JewishGen Online Worldwide
Burial Registry (JOWBR) has now reached a milestone. With the
current quarterly update, this searchable database exceeds one
million records! We have been able to accomplish this feat because

organizations. We also want to thank the translators who assisted by
translating the inscriptions on photographs of matzevot and entering
the data into our template. In addition, as many of you know, JOWBR

Itchek family #romania

Judy <ruddyduck@...>
 

Looking for ancestors or siblings of Esther Itchek of Bacau Romania. I don't
have her birthdate but she and husband Meyer Edelstein had the first of 11
children in 1884. (Lena).I believe my grandfather Jacob was next. Family
tree at http://home.comcast.net/~ruddyduck/EdelsteinFamilyTree/wc-toc.htm

I had her last name wrong for the last two years so the Itchek's are new to
me.
