Edmonton cemetery #unitedkingdom

NJ55TURTLE@...
 

Hello,

Is there a Londoner who can help me with the Federation Cemetery at Edmonton?

I am looking for any information the cemetery may have and/or a picture of the grave of a Hyman HYMAN, who died on July 18, 1906 at the age of 57. He is buried in plot F-4.

If by chance the above is not the correct person, then maybe the Hyman HYMAN I am seeking, is the one who died in 1915, and is buried in row A-8 at the Elawisk Cemetery in Newcastle Community. The same information is requested.

Thank you.

Stan,

It's a great idea.

If you have no one else you can entrust it to, I'll take a stab
at it.

If there's someone else who you want to give it to, I'll be glad
to assist.

There shouldn't be a "cut-off" date. The "gallery" could have three
"wings" or exhibition halls. Pre-WWI. Pre-WWII. Post-WWII (Modern
Judenrein wing.)

Dear group,

On a few occasions people have sent me photos >from Ciechanow. I was thinking
of setting up a photo gallery on the Ciechanow web page. I would like to get
some input >from the group on this in terms of the what the cut off year should
be in terms of when a photo was taken. General comments, suggestions and ideas
would be appreciated. If you have a collection of Ciechanow photos I would like
to hear about it. One photo I recently received is of the train station - a
wooden structure with a sign saying "Ciechanow". Maybe there is someone in the
group who wants to take an active role in this project. The process of
developing the feature involves: photo selection, arranging for the photo
donors to sign donor agreements, and setting the photos on an html page.

Dear Stan,
It sounds like a good idea as I'm sure thaty many of us who have/had family
from Ciechanow would appreciate having access to fmamily members
long departed.

My families are ROBOTA, SREBNAGORA (Silverman) aand maybe
ZILBERSEIN (>from Lodz ) and SCHMID (Anglecized to Smith), and Mallenbaum.
I am still researching many of these names.

My GGGF Robota was born circa 1820's and a few direct descendants are living
in the U.S. with surnames which were originally ROBOTA, now ROBOT or ROBOTS
or
even MORRIS (GGGF). Others were ed in the Holocaust, of which the
Yiskor Book for Ciechanow has all the names (Rosa Robota was my 2nd cousin
which I only found out about 10 years ago).

Hope to hear >from the Group...

BOF Groups-Gesher Galicia-Nov. 14th NYC #galicia

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

Gesher Galicia is holding a regional meeting in New York City on:

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 14TH
10:30AM-12:45PM

at the Center for Jewish History, 15 West 16th St., New York City 10011

http:www.cjh.org

At the conclusion of the meeting, for those who are interested, we will be
breaking into optional Birds-of-a-Feather groups for lunch at neighborhood
restaurants.

For those of you not familiar with the BOF concept, the idea is to have
people researching a specific town or region to gather together for
networking, providing opportunities to compare research breakthroughs,
travel experiences, surnames and family histories, etc.

Gesher Galicia steering committee member, Eden Joachim, is organizing these
BOF groups in advance to facilitate planning. If you are interested in
participating in this post-meeting option, please send your name and town(s)
or regions(s) of interest to her at:

esjoachim@optonline.net

Replying "yes" to her is not an absolute commitment to attend, but will
assist with our planning. For everyone's convenience, we will be lunching
within walking distance of the Center, but there will not be any Kosher meal
options unless a few smaller groups lunch at the cafe located at the CJH. (A
sign-up list of lunch groups will also be available at the meeting.)

*Please note, however:

IF you are researching towns in the Suchostaw Region Reseach Group (SRRG)
and/or the Kolbuszowa Region Research Group (KRRG), Susana Bloch is
organizing a mutual lunch for those two larger groups. If you have not
already RSVPed, please do so directly to her at:

bloch@mts.net

If you are new to Galician research, and are not sure if your town falls in
one of her areas, visit the shtetl sites for more information:

http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Suchostaw/shtetl_list.htm

http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Kolbuszowa/

or read at the end of this message for towns included in those geographical

Specific program information for the Gesher Galicia meeting will be posted
on list shortly.

We look forward to seeing you.

Morton & Shirley (BANK/S) GOULD #general

S. Harris <jewishgen@...>
 

I am still unsure as to Shirley's maiden name- I thought it was
BANKS, but a kind list member sent me an NYT engagement announcement for
the couple's son, David referring to David's mother as "Shirley BANK
GOULD."

Of course, the NYT obit for David's father referred to Morton and
Shirley's daughter as Amy, only to post a next-day correction (Abby).

A Pro-Quest death notice of Shirley's NYT death notice sent to me
anonymously would seem to settle the matter- but I can't find her name
anywhere among the notices on the page attached. Perhaps the sender
could resend the proper page referencing Shirley's death on July 5, 1992.

Thanks to all who have responded. Apparently, the Gould's were
divorced prior to Shirley's passing.

Not all Romanian Legal Documents used surnames after 1865 #general

PJL427@...
 

There was a statement that all people in Romania were required to use a
surname after 1865. I am not sure that this was true. At least surnames
were not always used on all legal documents after 1865.

Below is an excerpt of a marriage license in 1878 of my Great Grandparents
in Braila, Romania. Fanny WIND of Braila and Leizer Zomer of Focsoni.

Several listed people do not have a last name. Leibu sin Moise aged 42, a
tailor, Moisi Smil, aged 40 a Tailor, and Mendel Burah, aged 38.

The point here is that this was well after 1865 and several people are listed
without surnames on a legal document.

The wedding party had their names already >from Galicia. The guests and
witnesses, all Romanians had no surname listed.

(Also, of note is that the wife's mother was said to be unable to read. I
have a letter written by her in the most beautiful Hebrew script. She was a
school teacher.)

"All A/M took place in public in the townhall in the presence of the
requested four witnesses, namely Mendel Burah, Aged 38, a tailor, a
cousin of future wife, Lupu Israilovici, Aged 53, a peddlar, Leibu
sin Moise, Aged 42, Tailor, and Moisi Smil, Aged 40, a Tailor, all
living in Braila, the first two on behalf of the husband and the last
ones on behalf of the wife, and after I read the paper to the hearing
of the present people, spouses wife's parents and witnesses, have
subscribed together with all of them it is mentioned that wife's mother,
and the witnessing of Mendel, Leib and Moisi couldn't read and they put
their finger"

Dear Genners,
I am confused. I assumed that our ancestors lived primarily in the same
shtetles for generations except for exiles after progroms. But as I have been
searching, I am discovering that all my ancestors-those in the Russian Empire and
those in Galicia moved around during their lifetimes. So where one child was
born, another may be born somewhere else. And Parents may have lived in one
town, but the grown children live in other towns. How do we know if a person is
connected to us or not?
I am also researching the following towns and if anyone has any information
about them I would be very appreciative!

Dear Genners,
I am confused. I assumed that our ancestors lived primarily in the same
shtetles for generations except for exiles after progroms. But as I have been
searching, I am discovering that all my ancestors-those in the Russian Empire and
those in Galicia moved around during their lifetimes. So where one child was
born, another may be born somewhere else. And Parents may have lived in one
town, but the grown children live in other towns. How do we know if a person is
connected to us or not?
I am also researching the following towns and if anyone has any information
about them I would be very appreciative!
