Photo Request - Newark NJ Grove Street Cemetery #general

Shlomo Katz
 

I am seeking pictures of tombstones for:

William Weckstein (Row04-#12R)
Bernard Weckstein (Row09-#02L)
Rebecca Weckstein (Row09-#01L).

They are buried in the Newark NJ Grove Street Cemetery. (The above
information is >from JOWBR.)

As I am a Kohen, I cannot offer to take pictures at any of my local
cemeteries, but I'd be happy to return some other favor.

Thank you

Shlomo Katz
Silver Spring, Maryland.

MODERATOR NOTE: Please contact Shlomo Katz before going to the cemetery
in order to avoid duplication of effort.

Holocaust documentary and Talsi book #courland #latvia

bgephart@...
 

I just finished watching a documentary forwarded to me by a cousin in Israel
about the Holocaust in Latvia. It's quite good and I'd like to recommend it
here - https://youtu.be/KBANKlgBaoE One of the people interviewed has
apparently written a book in Latvian about the Jews of Talsi. It's called
'Talsi Jews' (or 'Talsu ebreji'), by Antra Grube. Has anyone seen this
book? I have requested it through ILL >from the University of Washington -
the only available library in the U.S. just to get a look at it. I think
available for purchase via a Latvian website, but I'm not confident in the
translation of the website. Of course, it's in Latvian, so would need to be
translated for the rest of us. Just curious if anyone had heard of it or
seen it.

I am looking for information on Zalman (Solomon) STEIN - he died prior

Is there a database to search for that cemetery?


Any help is much appreciated.

Thank you: map translation complete! #romania

The swift response to my request for help translating the beautiful old map of
Bessarabia into English means I now have a complete translation, thanks to a
generous volunteer in Israel and another >from Germany. This is the beauty of
JewishGen!

Now the project goes to a graphic designer, to see if/how we can create an
English twin. I will post it if/when we are successful.

This is one extraordinary community.
