I am looking for an obituary of someone who died in the Bronx (NYC) in
1983. I havealready determined that there was no obituary or funeral
notice published in the New York Times.

NYC Newspapers - Obits #general

Irene & Paul Berman <ikpjb@...>
 

The researcher might try "The New York Post" at www.nypost.com or "The New
York Daily News" at www.nydailynews.com.
Jews rarely listed obits in the latter paper, usually preferring "The New
York Times" , but you never know.

Translations needed - Bodrogkeresztur (entire cemetery)! #hungary

Hi H-SIG folks,

Great news. I have just received images of I believe all the cemetery stones in the Bodrogkeresztur, Hungary cemetery (thank you Rabbi Lichtenstein)!

I need someone to help translate the stones >from Hebrew to English. I believe there are over 300 images. Some stones, of course, are not legible. Others are waiting to be read and discovered!

Please email me if you can help. I will eventually be posting these on the Shtetlink site I created for Bodrogkeresztur and also submitting them to JOWBR. This should be a wonderful resource for future searchers.

Thank you,

PACHTER from Warsaw #general

Dear Genners

A few months ago I discovered what I believe to be the grave of a
first cousin of my great grandfather at the online database of the
Warsaw Jewish Cemetery. The deceased's name was Yosef PACHTER, son
of Avraham. He died in 1927 at the age of 75 and was >from Siemiatycze.
(my great great grandfather was Yisroel Pachter; he had a brother
named Avraham Yitzhak and the family was >from Siemiatycze) .

At the moment I am searching for his descendants, if any do exist.
I have no idea if children/grandchildren survived the war or if they
left before 1939 and went to Israel, Western Europe, the USA, or
Central and South America.

If any readers know anyone with the family name Pachter who came >from
Warsaw please have them get in touch with me.

Any suggestions re: surviving records that might exist in Warsaw and
could shed more light on this man or his offspring would be greatly
appreciated as well. thank you in advance for your assistance.

Godollo Cemetery #hungary

cia@...
 

Godollo(all o's with umlauts) is a town less than 45 minutes >from Budapest,
best known for its royal residence which is a tourist attraction.
Between 1850 and 1945 Godollo had an active Jewish community with a
synagogue, rabbi, school, celebrations (a Purim Ball!) and of course a
cemetery. The community was particularly growing and thriving till the
1920s. It was a popular summer place for Jews.
In the 1930s a particularly vicious form of anti-semitism had taken hold,
largely due to the efforts of one Endre Laszlo.
Many Jewish families left during this time.
The deportation of the Jews of Godollo, numbering only 175, was
orchestrated by the Ministry of the Interior. After the forced wearing of
yellow stars, old and young were packed into the synagogue, school and the
rabbi's house, all of which now comprised a ghetto, and sent to their fates
on May 28, 1944. Twenty-two souls are said to have returned. Today there
are at most 2 or three Jews in the town.
I visited the cemetery in 2002 and although restoration had begun under the
auspices of MAZSIHISZ, it was in dreadful condition: overturned, broken and
missing headstones, encroachment by a neighbour who had hung laundry between
headstones and used the spaces between graves as a garbage dump.The flimsy
fence had been broken down at the back and a number of headstones had been
dragged there, apparently ready to be removed at an opportune time.
For the next six years I regularly contacted the man who was supposed to be
in charge of the restoration and received no reply. Finally, I contacted
MAZSIHISZ and was put in touch with some one else and what a difference!
This man,Csaba Peterfi is obviously committed, has corresponded generously,
sent photos and when I visited last month the difference was astonishing.
The cemetery had been cleaned up, the encroaching neighbour pushed back and
fenced off, some headstoned repaired and raised. Much still needs to be done
including proper fencing, in part to keep out squatters who come in the
night. and the restoration of some vandalized stones. There has been support
from the Mayor and MAZSIHISZ, Csaba has contributed his own money but much,
much more is needed.The descendants of those who are buried there and might
have carried on the task of caring for the cemetery have been mostly wiped
out.

Latvia roadblock - What should I do next? What is possible to find? #general

Alex Skolnick <bussupp@...>
 

Hello Genners,

My great grandfather, Irving (or the Latvian equivalent) Glusok
died young, probably between 1905-1908.
Supposedly, he was a sulfur miner. My great uncle came to the
USA first, in 1908. My G-GM and her two daughters (including
my grandmother age 9) arrived in Ellis Island in 1912.
It stated on the manifest they were born in Dvinsk.
My mother always claimed they were >from Riga. She never heard
of Dvinsk so maybe some miscommunication at the ship.
My G-GM, Golda's maiden name may have been "Rada" or something
like it. This is all I know.

How can I learn more? What records are available >from Riga & Dvinsk?
- Is it possible to find a death certificate for my G-GF?
Would one have been produced?
- Is it possible to find a birth certificate for my grandmother >from 1903?
- Is it possible to find a marriage certificate for Irving & Golda?

I would appreciate any guidance on what is possible to find.
For most of my other branches, I can go further back in time.
This branch... I am stuck.

Thank you,

Other Hungarian Census database #general

Eric M. Bloch
 

Great news! We're pleased to announce the addition of nearly 9,000
entries to the Hungarian [Jewish] Census Records 1770-1850 database:
< http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Hungary/CensusOther.htm >.

The new data covers the following Hungarian counties and years:
Abauj 1773; Arad 1773; Arva 1774-5; Bacs-Bodrog 1773-4; Barany 1775;
Bihar 1816, 1820-21; Fejer (Alba) 1774; Gyor (Jaur) 1770, 1774; Hont
1770, 1775; Komarom 1771, 1774, 1775; Moson 1770, 1773; Pozsony 1770,
1773, 1774; Szatmar 1771; Zala 1770, 1773; Zemplen 1771, 1774. Other
counties are currently being transcribed for the 1770-1775 period.

Unfortunately, the majority of names in the Jewish Censuses of 1770-1775
use patronymics in place of surnames. Thus, the information may be of
limited value unless you know the families you are tracing lived in a
certain town in the 18th century.

One of the more interesting bits of data in the records is whether the
individual was born in the Kingdom of Hungary, or not; and if not, how
long they had resided in Hungary. In a few cases, the record shows the
person in Hungary since the 1690s!

Happy hunting!
