Miloska - town in Poland? #poland

Naidia Woolf <rnwoolf@...>
 

My maternal great grandmother was a Shayna Ita GRINBERG. She married my
great grandfather, Leizer SAPERSTEIN/ SAFIRSTEIN in the mid to late 1860s.
(I believe that Leizer had been married previously and had a child by his
former wife Chana in 1862.)

According to the birth records of their three oldest children, Leizer and
Shayna lived for several years, at least, in Miloska, Poland. Each of the
birth records state that all three children were born in Miloska and that
the father "worked" there. (Michel, Surah - my maternal grandmother - and
sister Royza were born between 1869 and 1875.)

The births of the three oldest children were recorded in 1875 - after the
family moved to Karczew - at the same time as those of Leizer and Shayna's
two youngest children, Moshe and Chana. (Karczew is a town southeast of
Warsaw.)

I have been unable to locate Miloska on my map of Poland (or anywhere
else, for that matter). My question is: is the name of the town spelled
differently?

A heartwarming story, available exclusively in the JewishGenMall #rabbinic

Carol W. Skydell <cskydell@...>
 

In simple prose laced with frequent comments demonstrating a wry
sense of humor, Peninah Rosin tells the story of her "Flight to
Survival" >from Wloclawek to Eretz Yisrael during the years 1939 to
1945.

This is a personal narrative that can only be described as
heartwarming, full of demonstrable courage in the face of despair.
It is not a lengthy book, but worth reading if one wants to
understand what it was like for a seventeen year old to be faced
with Nazi invasion and the resultant disintegration of her
close-knit family unit. Peninah Rosin's book is a compelling read,
a story not soon forgotten. It is a book that is appropriate for
teenagers as well as adults.

If you are in the U.S.or Canada use product code JGI102 to order If
you are not in either of those two countries, please use product
code JGI102I

Proudly published by JewishGen, the book is available for only
$18.50 plus S&H at http://www.jewishgenmall.org

Re: Cemeteries in Spitalfields #unitedkingdom

Michael Goldsmith asked

My relative, Hyman Yochvedovitch died at age 12 months in the Booth Street
Buildings, Spitalfields in October 1899. Does anyone know in what cemetary
he would be likely to have been buried? His family lived in Bethnal Green
at his birth in 1898, and in Whitechapel in 1901, but I do not know where
they resided at the time of his death. Would it be likely that there is a
tombstone or a record for me to find on my trip to London in October?


The details of his death can be found on the death record.

Yochvedovitch Hyman 1 Whitechapel 1c 192

but it will not give the name of the cemetery. Most infant graves do not
have a gravestone.

Galicia cemeteries #galicia

I have recently returned >from a visit to several shtels is Galicia where I
have taken pictures of what once were cemeteries, but now have no visible
signs that the grounds were once used for Jewish burials. These are in Glinyany,
Kamionka Strumilowa (the cemetery site across >from the railroad station),
and in Bialy Kamen (the cemetery site across >from the Christian cemetery).

I have pictures too of the mass grave in Kamionka Strumilowa and also the
mass grave in Zloczow which has a new monument that was dedicated last month.
I can send digital pictures to those of you who have a family interest in
these gravesites.

Ekaterinoslav section at Old Montefiore Cemetery, NY #ukraine

Hilary Henkin
 

Dear group,
When I was in New York City in August, I visited Old Montefiore
Cemetery to pay my respects to my ancestors.

Apparently, the landsmanshaften section they're in, the "Relief
Association of Ekaterinoslaw", has been a well-kept secret. It's not
listed under "Old Montefiore Cemetery" on the JewishGen Cemetery
Project, and I found an online reference to it only in one resource
(which I can't find again).

I took about a dozen photos of gravestones while I was there, but
didn't have time to document the entire section, which probably has
150-200 graves.

Has anyone investigated this, or done any documentation? If I lived
there, I'd be glad to document the section, but it's rather a long
drive >from my home of Atlanta, Georgia. Are there any New Yorkers
with Ekat. roots interested in documenting it for the JewishGen
Worldwide Burial Project? I'd be glad to fine-tune the photographs
prior to submission, but I can't help with translating or
photographing the stones.

I haven't phoned the cemetery yet, to ask them about a list of the
graves; I thought I'd ask here first before bothering them.

In 1999, I posted a list of the names on the gates to Ukraine-SIG
<http://data.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.dll?jg~jgsys~sigsview~14133~ekaterinoslav+montefiore~360;10>
or search those archives for <ekaterinoslav + montefiore>. Now I'd
like to get the rest of the names shared, or increase the awareness
of the association's existence.

Any suggestions welcomed.
