The 25 is probably the postal code (predecessor to Zip Codes) introduced
I believe during WWII.
Thus: New York 25, NY.

Judy,

I am guessing that 206 W. 92 St is in the borogh of Manhattan.

As far as the "II 25," is it possible that the II are ditto marks, meaning
" NY, NY 25" ?

Today, the zip code for 206 W. 92 St is 10025. (Per
http://www.usps.com/zip4/)


Hope this helps.

I have just received information >from a French naturalization dossier that
includes a New York address as follows:

206 W 92 St. New York II 25.

Does anyone know what the notation "II 25" means and in which borough does
this address exist. >from what I can gather the address was >from the
1940's.

Re: Graf family #general

grace
 

I realized recently that I do not have and have never seen a photo of my
mgf, Leiser (?)Graf. My mgm was his second wife and he died when my mother
Rebekah Sandler/Graf Fener) was about 2years old, in about 1907.

I do know that my mother also had a niece, Rosa Sandberg (Daughter Susan)
who was much older than my mother, making her Leiser's grand-daughter and
1/2 brother Leon Graf's daughter?

Some info about Leiser Graf's son, Leon Graf, my mother's 1/2 brother:

Born in Romania; naturalized May 10, 1926 in the Bronx; lived in US 37
years; paper undated;

For some reason I have information that he ....

Sailed on Albert Ballin; April 21, 1928; pier 86, at 46th and 12th Ave.
Due in Hamburg; ten days; 3,600 miles

I also have this information pertaining to his death.
Unveiling October 27th, 1940
Mt. Moriah Cemetery; Block One, Section A;Mt. Moriah, 685 Fairview Ave,
Fairview 07022

He provided papers and support for my mother to come to the States in 1939.
He was buried :
Mt .Moriah Cemetery(Block One, Section A, ...unveiling October 27th,
1940..(.Mrs. Hermina Graff)
(met 1478 Walton Ave. & 172nd St.)
I have the name of Morris Graf as his youngest? son, perhaps in Florida?

Anyone have any information, or, suggestions?

Hope that this too confusing.....
Thanks, Grace Fener-Markofsky

Alexander Sharon is obviously correct. I am guessing that the
questioner had seen the name "Oesterreich" handwritten in Yiddish.
If so, that would have ended in a final khaf; and if the stem was
insufficiently elongated, it could very easily have been misread as a
"resh."

I point this out as it is worth bearing in mind whenever we are
trying to decipher handwritten Yiddish. Might also be useful when
reading eroded gravestones!

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum has recently obtained filmed
copies of Jewish community records for a number of cities in Northwest
Germany, specifically Muenster, Oldenburg, Detmold-Lippe, Bentheim and
Luebeck. This collection (RG 14.051M) consists of 17 reels of film (ca.
17,000 pages) and includes virtually all aspects of community life from
about 1920 through 1938. For the patient researcher interested in these
communities, this is a treasure trove of information.

London Marriage Registers 1791-1885 #general

Now that the task of computerizing the marriage registers of London's Great,
Prince's St., Sandy's Row, Hambro, etc., synagogues for the period 1791-1885 is
complete, we urgently need some technical help to enable the material to be ready
for the International Conference on Jewish Genealogy in July.

Assistance >from anyone really familiar with the Excel spreadsheet would be most
welcome. Current problems are: Displaying dates earlier than 1900, arranging
wrap-over of a line when printing, making field headings appear on each printed
page, arranging extra space on each page to allow for binding and squeezing all
fields onto one printed (A4) page in "landscape".
