If anyone replied to Toby Gass to go to the Har Nebo Cemetery to photograph
grave sites, please contact Rachelle Litt privately too. I have several sites
I need as well.

Would someone be able to take a few photos at Har Nebo and Montefiore
Cemeteries? I have the exact plot locations, and I have a map for Har
Nebo, which is challenging otherwise.

Abel NARUNSKI - Joniskis, Lithuania 1946 #general

Jules Feldman
 

According to the Lithuanian Holocaust Survivers Lists, Abel NARUNSKI from
Joniskis, Lithuania was "Found in Germany" in 1946. I suspect that he was
the son of Artur and Genia NARUNSKY of Joniskis (Yaneshik) and the
half-brother of my uncle Harry NARUNSKY of Johannesburg.

I will be grateful for more information about him and of descendants.

(US) Ancestor Hunt Publishes College and University Student Newspaper Links in the US #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

College and University student newspapers can be a treasure trove of
information on ancestors. Ancestor Hunt recently published on their website
by state and institutions 1,175 free College and University newspaper links.
By no means is the list exhaustive either by state or by institution but it
is a good place to begin, but they do cover all 50 states. Some of the
institutions only include fairly recent publications as they have not yet
digitized all of their newspapers.

Do you trace your ancestry to "Posen"? #poland

This message is to all researchers who have "Posen" (or Poznan) among

Duchy of Posen, Posen Province, or Wielkopolska.

Thanks to many volunteers, and also professional genealogists -
funded by your contributions to JRI-Poland - many Jewish records
from this region are already in JRI-Poland's growing database.
However, much still remains to be done.

Researchers with an interest in this region know of Madeleine
Okladek's long-time commitment to helping researchers with an
interest in towns in both the Poznan and Kalisz Archival areas. I
recently agreed to take over >from Madeleine as Poznan Archives
Coordinator for the main branch (PSA archive #53), where surviving
(mainly pre-1847) Jewish records are held. Madeleine remains Archive
Coordinator for the Konin and Pila sub branches of Poznan Archives
(#54), as well as the Kalisz Archives (#11) where many civil records
(post-1874) >from this region are held.

I am updating the database of "interested Poznan area researchers",
to help decide indexing priorities. So, if you have roots in this
region, please let me know your towns and time periods of interest. .
Please also let me know if you have any records, lists or documents

This collection is of significant value for those with German ancestry

1938/early 1939. Each form includes birth date, place of birth,
parents' names, their birth dates and locations, and children's names.
The entries are ordered alphabetically. I submitted a request for
each entry to be digitized, but seemingly forgot the file for surnames
ranging >from S to Sch, so that was now requested to be added.

The collection is only for those living in Jerusalem--it does not
include Germans living in Tel Aviv or elsewhere.

ABRAHAMS, MEYEROWITZ, WOLF, CANTOR in NYC/NJ #general

Marty Meyers <martymeyers@...>
 

I'm looking to trace the family of Davis and Ida ABRAHAMS who lived on
Eldridge Street on the lower east side in 1905, per the 1905 NY
census. With them were their children Julius (carpenter), Herbert
(salesman), Esther, Freida, Jennie (all dressmakers) and the youngest
Bertha. Also listed as a son (questionable) is Joseph JOSEM.

At the same address were my great-grandparents Harry and Rachel (nee
PRUSHKIN) MEYERS/MEYEROWITZ and their children Joseph, Nathan (my
grandfather) and Lena. Interestingly, Joseph JOSEM was the witness on
both Joe and Nathan MEYERS' marriage certificates. Also staying with
them was Samuel WOLF, a boarder.

Also at the same address was a Harry MEYEROWITZ, age 27 and a tailor,
listed as the brother-in-law in the household of Michael and Becky
CANTOR, suggesting that Becky's maiden name was also MEYEROWITZ. The
CANTOR children were Max, Morris, Sadie, Gerdie and Minnie.

Family lore has it that the WOLF and PRUSHKIN families were related,
so the WOLF staying with my great-grandparents was likely a relation.
A Robert WOLF, nephew of the above Samuel, later boarded with my
great-uncle Joe MEYERS' family in Jersey City as did Abraham (Abram
Yithok) MEYERS/MEYEROWIYZ who was a nephew of Becky (nee MEYEROWITZ)
MASS.

Since my great-grandfather Harry (Tzvi Hersh) MEYEROWITZ' parents were
Jossel and Henya (nee ABRAMOWITZ), the ABRAHAMS could very well be
family as well. All the above families were >from the
Berestovitsa/Krynki area south of Grodno.

If you are in contact with any descendants of these folks, please
contact me privately.
