Canadian soldiers (Jewish Infantry Reinforcement Company) #general

Harold Pollins <pollins@...>
 

This is addressed to Canadian Jewishgenners or, more precisely, those who
had relations who served in the Canadian army in the First World War I
(many were >from the USA and the British Isles).

I have some details of a unit called the Infantry Reinforcement Draft
Company (Jewish) or sometimes Jewish Infantry Reinforcement Company.
Apparently it existed between 1916 and 1920.
I gather it recruited mainly in Montreal. It had its own cap badge.

Did anyone have relations who served in it? And more particularly is there
anything written about it? I am in touch with various Canadians who are
knowledgeable about their country's military history but haven't yet
accumulated much information.
Why was it set up? Did it provide kosher food?

Any information would be gratefully received.

GREENBERG and Yiddish Stage #general

David W. Harris <dharris1@...>
 

I uncovered information that an aunt (generations removed) Charlotte
HOROWITZ married Sezar GREENBERG in Europe about 1881. They were both
Yiddish Stage actors and emigrated to New York in 1886 with the Moses
HOROWITZ acting troupe. The 1900 census reports they had two daughters,
Jenny born in 1882 and Lizzy born in 1883, both still single. Charlotte
died in 1905, and Sezar died after 1930.

I would be interested in trying to track the lives of Jenny and Lizzy and
any leads would be appreciated.

Thanks in Advance.

find out more about the society and Ostralenker. Thank you

I've seen a couple of postings about finding someone whose listed email
address is no longer valid. The 2 that I've seen so far (>from early
September -- someone else may have already helped the searchers, but I'm
cc'ing them anyway in case nobody has) can both be found in yahoo's
people search database. Go to http://www.yahoo.com, follow the link for
People Search, and enter the name you're looking for. There are other
sites as well, and I don't know how they compare, but this is one to try
anyway.

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.
