Dear GG: I am trying to find a listing of the Kozower buriel society at
Mt. Hebron cemetary. Is it online? I have checked findagrave.com but they
do not have Mt. Hebron listed. Any suggestions other than visiting there!!!

Hi, a couple of days ago I spoke with Joe, >from Mt. Hebron, since my
great-grandmother is buried there. He was kind enough to tell me he would
take a picture of Rose Felder's tombstone and send it to me. You can reach
him at (718) 939-9405 or write him at P.O. Box 228, Flushing, NY 11352.

Good luck!!!

Does anybody know if there is a Jewish cemetery in Mielec from
before WWII that can be visited?
Former residents of Mielec who visited there reported to my mother at least
10 years ago that a post office had been built atop one of the town's Jewish
cemeteries. According to my mother, this was the cemetery where her parents,
both of whom died c. 1918-1920, were buried. Bad enough to destroy and
remove gravestones; this abuse of a burial ground -- please forgive the
pun -- stamps out the memory of the Jewish dead in more ways than one.

Simon Sharpe & Zelia Borofosky of Nashua, NH #lithuania

Susan Tait Porcaro <Suetaitporcaro@...>
 

I am looking for further roots for:

Simon Sharpe, born July 1858 in Vilna, Lithuania
died 5 Aug 1932, buried in Beth Abraham Cemetery, Nashua, NH
his wife: Zelia Borofosky, born abt 1852 in Russia
died 24 mar 1923, buried with Simon. Her parents are listed as Benjamin
Borofosky and Sarah Davis.

They emigrated in 1892, coming into Boston (I believe) and were listed
as residents of Nashua in the 1900 Census. Their daughter Ida, married
Aaron Chiansky. It is through her that my husband descends.
Nashua Library sent me a copies of their obits, which listed Simon as
a "founder" of Temple Beth Abraham.

Any info on these families is greatly appreciated.
Thank you

Re: Great Uncle #general

I discovered recently when my uncle gave me a copy of his army discharge
papers what a wealth of information is to be found there, including his
birthdate, address to which he was discharged, address when he entered the
army, rank, medals, army and civilian occupations and many other interesting
things. Perhaps you can find his discharge papers at NARA or at the FHC,
even if you don't know where he died. If you do know where he died, you can
get a copy of the death certificate, which may be helpful. Good luck!

Can someone help??????????
I have not been able to find out when or where my grandfather was killed, or
where he is buried. I know the following:::
1. Death was between 1909 and 1912.
2. My grandfather was killed in an accident by a New
York Railway's vechical.
3. I have a communication >from the railroad's lawyer,
with a Rochester address in 1912.
4. The name of the law firm handling this matter for the
railroad was "Wile & Oviatt,dr."

Does anyone know where records >from the State Railway System might be today?
The name of the company that may have taken over this rail system? The name
of the law firm that may have taken over this Wile & Oviatt?The names of
Jewish cemeteries in the Rochester area, during this time? I am assuming
death took place in the Rochester, NY area, because of the lawyer's address.
Monroe County, Dept. of Health, checked records, but could not find him.

I have no one else to turn too, except Jewishgen geners.

town question/translation? #hungary

Marian Brown
 

Dear all --

Regarding the town Szinye Neudorf, I have had two replies. One that
Szinye is now Svinia, the other that the town could now be Chminianska
Nova Ves. Both are near Presov.

I'm still a bit puzzled because of the work "Neudorf" In looking at
the
1972 Slovakian gazetter film, I have seen the words, neudorf, nova ves,
and ujfalu for many owns. Do they mean "new town" or some such? Or, if

not, what do they mean?

Thank you,
Marian Brown
Cincinnati, OH

Moderator VK: Neudorf does translate as "new village" or "new town". Nova (novy) ves is "new village" in Slovak. Uj is new and falu is village in Hungarian. Svinia is a few kilometers east of Chminianska Nova Ves. Looks like you're pretty close. Have you checked the 1877 Gazetteer?

Thank you all for responding to one of my first e-mails. The information I
received was absolutely great and gave me further avenues to explore. My
mom"s maiden name was Okon,her first name was Eleanore and she was born in
1904. Her father was Joseph Okon and he was some sort of tobacco merchant,
and left for America between l915-20. I'm seeking information about the
entire family and any old or new pictures of the town. Have a good Shabbat.

Re: EIDB Search Results Question #general

Jeanne Gold asks:
I've had instances, quite a few recently, using Morse's EIDB search
(http://home.pacbell.net/spmorse/ellis/ellisjw.html), where names do not
appear in his results but are in fact in the EIDB.

Does anyone know why?

One possible reason is that the passenger was not identified as
Jewish/Hebrew on the manifest for some reason. I have had good luck in such
cases using the mainpage tool, which is for everyone, not just Jews.
Perhaps this will help you too.

Passing of Morton Knecht #general

Stan Zeidenberg
 

I would like to bring to your attention the very recent passing
of Morton Knecht. Morton was the person who took the
Ciechanow LDS index pages, deciphered the entries, and then
did the data entry. This material was then incorporated into
the JRI database.

This all began many years ago. I had photocopied the index
pages with a view to providing this material to JRI. This was
with the expectation that JRI would have someone readily
available to do the processing. I learned that there was no one
standing by waiting. Because I was eager to get at the data
myself as well as to make it available generally, I went about
searching for a volunteer to do the work. I put out a posting
to JewishGen or JRI (not sure which one) and got a very
enthusiastic reply >from Morton Knecht.

As it turned out, Morton was living right here in Toronto and
within a 10 minute drive >from where I live. Morton, although
he had no direct connection to Ciechanow, was very eager to
assist. Morton was born in Nowy Dwor and lived there until
1939. At that point he fled to Russia.

Morton soon began the work and we developed a very good
friendship -- right >from the beginning. Morton always
encouraged me to call or drop in anytime and said that he
would help in any way he could with the translations of
records. He really meant it and I took him up on his very
friendly generosity on many occasions. At these times his wife
Ann would always offer tea and home baked pastries.

Morton brought to the work his intellect, a systematic
approach, and a very personal sense of the names in use and
their possible variations. He displayed a real living connection
to the material. And there were always interesting stories about
life in Poland and update information to do with Morton's own
genealogical research.

Later on, Morton assisted me, and the Jewish genealogical
community, with the processing of the LDS index pages for
the town of Michow (near Lublin). He also did the work on
the Polish entries for his own hometown, Nowy Dwor Maz. I
know that he helped many other people in the translation of
their genealogical documents. All of this was on a voluntary
basis of course.

I have been privileged to have Morton as a friend and a
genealogical research helper. In my experience, the rewards of
putting the pieces of the genealogical puzzle are great, but
what I find the most rewarding are the special friendships made
on the way. My friendship with Morton stands out high
amongst these.
