Michigan Death Records 1867-1882 #general

Haran C. Rashes <haran@...>
 

I just learned about the Michigan Genealogical Death Indexing System
(GENDIS) put out by the Michigan Department of Community Health. GENDIS
is available on the Internet with 148,000 Michigan death records from
1867-1880 and portions of 1881 and 1882. The records include most of the
data that would have been listed on the death certificate. I hope it is
of use to some of you.

DOUGLAS and HAIN: Jewish names? #general

WAlmeleh@...
 

Does anyone know if DOUGLAS and HAIN were original Jewish names? I have
relatives with these surnames related to my LEVIN ancestors and don't know if
they changed the names >from more Jewish names or whether these names could be
Jewish ones >from either Belarus or Germany.

Searching: COHN #general

carlyn <carlynn@...>
 

I've recently become interested in finding out a little more about my
grandmother's family...I know very little at this point, but if anyone
can help...

My grandmother: Dorothy Cohn
Her brother: Frank Cohn, Jr.

Dorothy died in 1985, Frank is living. Both spent most of their lives
(and I *believe* were born in) Louisville, Kentucky USA.

Their father: Frank Cohn
Their mother: ____? (maiden name: Gottlieb)

I know the family came >from Germany but do not know when...prior to
WWII, definitely. I've heard mention of a well-known bacteriologist in
the family tree, too.

Sorry for the lack of info, but my family's always been loose-knit and
terrible at keeping records. I'm just curious.

Zhitomir CEMETERY #general

David Goldman <davic@...>
 

I may have once asked about this. Does anyone have any information about
the condition of Zhitomir Jewish cemetery? Some of my ancestors are buried
there. According to information I have, it was near or across the road from
a military hospital. My hunch is that I won't be able to find anything there.

WILENSKY/VILENSKY - How common? #general

Nancy & Peter Pfaff <ppfaff@...>
 

When I first started researching the surname WILENSKY/VILENSKY I was
excited to find the name in New York, Montreal and Chicago, where my
husband's family lived. However, I am now finding death notices,
engagement notices, etc even here in our local paper (Connecticut).
There is even a Vilensky St. in one of the towns here in CT.

Is this a common name?
