Where is Riverside Cemetery/NYC? #general

Stephen A. Cohen
 

Riverside Memorial Chapel, 180 West 76th St at the corner of 76th and
Amsterdam Avenue in Manhattan is one of the oldest and most respected
memorial chapels in the tri-state area.

It services funerals on Long Island, central and northern New Jersey and
Westchester County. Whether it accepts funerals at greater distances I
cannot say >from my personal experience.

Within the five boroughs (counties) of New York City, there is no
Riverside Cemetery. As Ms. Futoran mentioned there is one in Bergen County
in New Jersey.

Instead of writing to the membership to answer questions like this one or
as the expression goes "try to remake the wheel" our membership should
learn to use the tools that are available.

The greatest value of association with Jerwishgen, its SIGs and study
groups is the phenomenal number of sources we have to answer questions
like this, right within the Jewishgen web pages.

When questions arise, consult FAQ (frequently asked questions), the
discussion group & SIG archives before writing to the membership. Many
answers are already there.

In this instance a Directory of Metropolitan New York Area Jewish
Cemeteries can be found at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/infofiles/nycems.txt

This lists cemeteries within about fifty miles of New York City. Through
Jewishgen you can get lists of cemeteries all over the US and worldwide.

Jewishgen gives us hundreds of powerful tools and sources of research.
Whether a member is a novice or has been in genealogy for many years, they
should go back to the basics at least once a year. New tools and sources
are constantly being added to Jewishgen.

The more efficient and organized each of us can become, the greater will
be the results of our research.

Nitra megye records at FHL #hungary

korman3 <korman3@...>
 

I understand that birth, marriage and death records for Nitra megye are
finally showing up on the catalog sheets at the FHL in Salt Lake. The
film numbers have not made it to the on line catalog or any of the
branch catalogs on CD rom or fiche.

Does anyone know who to contact at the FHL to get an ongoing list of
these film numbers as they are added to the new film sheets? If we have
the numbers, we can order the films through the FHL branches even if the
films have not been added to the on line catalog.

All input appreciated.

Moderator VK: I've made an inquiry to the Family History Library about the Nitra records and will let you all know what I hear back.


GEDCOM utility for Macintosh #hungary

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Hello folks:

If besides being a genealogy hobbyist you are also a bit of a hacker
this utility is for you - SeeGEDCOMX. You can download it at:
http://www.versiontracker.com/moreinfo.fcgi?id=9938&db=mac

SeeGEDCOMX does what most of the family tree building softwares
don't: it allows you to browse and modify your tree entries freely
and easily. You get random access to all members of your trees
through a search function. You can build simple but useful trees and
navigate among members of the same group. You can sort by given
names, surnames, place of birth or marriage and many other sort
features. And it exports to GEDCOM so you can load modified versions
back to your family tree building software. You will love this little
gadget, give it a try.

NOTE: I have no commercial or any other interest in this product,
just mention it because it's very handy.

Sorry PC guys, this is an exclusively Mac app :-)

Enjoy
Tom

Re: neutra hungary #hungary

The German name of Nyitra was/is Neutra. There was a famous Hungarian/Amarican architect Neutra.

Re: Question re:: name #hungary

Tsvi Sinai <t_sinai1@...>
 

The answer is
simple. In Hebrew, thorough all the times, Pay is Pa,Sof is Tav, Ches is
Chet, Yod is Yod and Hay is Hay .
So John
Moskowitz Hebrew name was Petachya, which is a legitimate Hebrew name, from
Biblical times on.

The answer lays in a question of spelling.

FHL in Israel #hungary

Moshe & Esther Davis <davis@...>
 

Another question- is there any access to LDS records in Israel?
Moderator: Can anyone tell Ilona if the FHL has finally
opened a branch in Israel?
Nope (there is no FHL branch in Israel to date).

However, I did hear a rumor awhile ago that there might be some
sort of arrangement in the makings between the FHL and the
CAHJP (Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People),
which is located here is Jerusalem. I might be visiting the CAHJP
in the reasonably near future, and will try and remember to ask
Hadassah Assouline about this.
