rondoctor@...
 

Dear Kremenets-District Friends,


Thanks to Adam Bronstein ... again ... the latest update to our
"/Concordance of Personal Names and Town Names/" is available through
out One-Step Search Engine. The searchable Concordance is at:

http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Kremenets/web-pages/master-surnames.html

This update adds more than 5,200 entries >from the Landsmanshaft
Booklets. The Concordance now has almost 147,000 entries.

Many thanks to Ellen Garshick for managing the translations and doing
the proofreading, formatting and indexing of "Voice of Kremenets
Emigrants in Israel and the Diaspora". The set includes 18 Booklets
published between 1968 and 1982, plus an additional Booklet published in
1995 by the Organization of Kremenets Emigrants.

Translations of the Hebrew portions of all 18 Booklets are available
online at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/kremenets1/kremenets1.html.

The translation website includes images of the original Hebrew and
Yiddish pages as well as the translation.

Enjoy!

And, keep tuned. There is more coming. Next up will be more than 8,700
newly translated revision list records for the following towns:

Belozerka, 1816-1827

Re: death/burial records for Chudnov, 1923 #ukraine

Hello fellow researchers,

Does anyone know if there are death/burial records for the town of Chudnov
in 1923? My grandfather was killed in a pogrom that year and I would like
to know if there is any record of his death. I understand that some records
were kept in Zhitomir. If you have any information on this please let me
know.
Thanks very much,
Marilyn Ginsburg, Canada

USA: Jewish Chaplains Get Memorial at Arlington National Cemetery #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Jewish rabbis have served as Chaplains in the US military for decades. On
October 24 the first monument on Chaplains Hill at Arlington National
Cemetery outside of Washington D.C. commemorates the 14 Jewish chaplains
killed on active duty in America's armed forces.

Of the 14 chaplains, seven died on active duty in the US, three in Vietnam
and four in WWII.

The monument is placed next to the three monuments of the chaplains of
other faiths who gave their lives to service of their country.

To read more about the memorial and the 14 Jewish chaplains go to:

Old Yearbooks Lookup Offer #general

Rusty Wilson
 

I have the 1928 New Jersey Law School Yearbook (which I think became
Rutgers Law School - it covers students who graduated in 1928, 1929
and 1930) and the 1934 Yale Freshman Yearbook (covering only members
of the incoming freshman class of 1930-1931). I'd be happy to look up
any individuals in either book for anyone interested.

Re: FABIA inquiry - More information is required #usa

Nancy Wyman
 

Daniel Fabia <danielfabia@...> asked about his FABIA family.

Dear Daniel,
Ancestry.com has 1600 records on the name FABIA. In order for someone
to help you, it is essential that you provide some additional information.
You have posted to the Early American SIG list -- do you have reason to
believe that your family members resided in the US during the 1700's or
1800's, and what are those details?
What is the last FABIA ancestor you can document in your lineage, and
what was his or her vital information, as well as sibling names? Going back
one generation at a time is best way to learn about your ancestry -- much
more productive than searching for information on a particular surname.
Please provide some further background information.

Kind regards, Nancy Wyman Florida

Seek CASSEL / CUSSEL - Zons, Germany and Brazil #germany

Judy
 

Hello to all,

I have come a long way in my research but there are still a couple of names
that are eluding me.

I have in my grandmother's notes (Frieda ROTHSCHILD nee DANIELS,
born in Zons, Germany), that her brother in law Ernst ROTHSCHILD
who was declared dead in 1943 had been married to Hedda CUSSEL in Germany
probably Koln. HEDDA later married Charles BLUM (about 1946) and lived in
New York.

I also have a letter, dated 1967 >from a Carl CASSEL who lived in
Brazil. His letterhead reads "H.K.CASSEL". The letter talks about an "Auntie
Frieda" who I assume is my grandmother named above.

I am also trying to find the connection to Hedda CUSSEL and Carl CASSEL.
(Logic tells me that they were possibly brother and sister.)

I am also currently trying to find the family of Carl and find out the
connection. They live in Porto Alegre, Brazil and I do have the old address.

No matter how I type in the names there is no information at all. I cannot
find the immigration or marriage records and do not know if Hedda and Carl
married in Germany or the USA.
If anyone has any advice please contact me.

are entered in the JGFF.

Re: How to learn ancestor's Hebrew names? #general

tom klein <bossman@...>
 

There is no direct correlation between secular and jewish names, only
probabilities. The custom in Poland was to use the jewish name at
home and to use it, or something with a similar sound, as the secular
name. Thus "feivel" could become "phillip", etc.

But hungarian jews would typically use their secular names, which
were often patriotic and not of jewish origin, at home, and their
jewish names for ritual purposes. thus a "geza" might have a jewish
name of "moishe yankev".

People would use their jewish names on birth records, ketubot, or
gravestones, which are the usual ways to determine them accurately.

I recently had to find my grandfather's jewish name, and searched
through my parents' ketubah (it was misspelled), my grandfather's
gravestone (it wasn't there), and finally the birth register (>from
1875) to get it. His secular name was simon, and his jewish name was
yehoshiye.

Abraham MANDELKERN death records in New Jersey #general

Steve Pickoltz
 

Hello,

If you are going to the New Jersey State Archives or the equivalent
Pennsylvania office, and can do a death look up for me, it would be greatly
appreciated.

The person in question is Abraham MANDELKERN. His family lived in
Philadelphia, and he is buried in a Philadelphia cemetery with a tombstone
death date of July, 11, 1909. His age would be about 13. After a search
by the Philadelphia Archives Office for the years 1908-1910, they could
not find any records. I am therefore thinking he may have died in New Jersey
or elsewhere in Pennsylvania, maybe in the city of Reading.

Could anyone out there check this out for me?

Thank you.
