Need Help With Obituary Look-up in FL #general

David & Deborah Peskin <dx2etc@...>
 

Is there anyone in Florida who would be able to go to a local library to
look for an obituary for a relative who lived in Pompano Beach until his
death in Fort Lauderdale on 18 September 1987. I'm searching for
descendants of Mark GELLIS, and am hoping that if there was an obituary for
him, it would provide clues for me such as names of children and where they
resided at that time. According to his death certificate, his wife's name
was Julia BERLIN. I am not familiar with the local newspapers in the
Pompano Beach area.

I'd be tremendously appreciative of any help, and would gladly recipricate
if possible. I've always received a wonderful response >from Genners in the
past, and am hopeful that I won't be disappointed.

Lifesaving genealogy -- seeking ALL relatives #general

Jim Yarin <yarin@...>
 

Seeking relatives between the ages of 18 and 60 of Barbara STONE, a native
of Newton, Massachusetts, who is in dire need to find a bone marrow match.
A simple blood test can confirm if someone can save Barbara >from her
Leukemia.
Anyone can be tested, but relatives have a slightly better chance of
providing the perfect HLA match. See:
http://www.bmdw.org/Research/Lectures/Aix/

Barbara Stone comes >from a Boston family by the name of STONE. It is her
father's side of the family that doctors have determined has better
prospects for providing a perfect HLA match. The family name was originally
TZIRILSTEIN and they came >from Merkine (Meretz). Also related to:
MONTVILESHKY, who came >from Merkine or Druskanai. The STONE family of
Boston included several siblings: Elihu D. STONE and Luis STONE, Boston
Attorneys, Sidney and Aaron STONE, Boston Dentists, and Morris STONE, an
expert in Tuberculosis who founded or help found the Mt. Sinai Hospital.
The other brother was Yehuda (Julius), who was Barbara's grandfather. There
were two sisters, Florence KAPLAN and Sarah WAGMAN, also of Boston.

If you know of any relatives of these individuals, please send me an email,
AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!!!

Please see the website with additional family history and information about
Barbara at: http://users.rcn.com/yarin/LifesavingBloodTest.htm

G-d bless you.

Hebrew name/Yussel=Juda and/or Jozsef #general

LClauson@...
 

Hungarian family, trying to find who Joseph, age 82 (Jewish/Hebrew? name
Yussel), son of Rudolf (Jewish/Hebrew name Yahael) is named after. Best
guess is Jozsef or Juda. Juda fits my criteria best but Jozsef also a
possibility. Jozsef and Juda are of Rudolf's mother's family (probably one
of them is her father) Joseph has no clue.
Appreciate any opinions or help.

Patchogue, LI - not unusual #general

Linda Cantor <lincan@...>
 

Daniel Kazez asked "... Patchogue, New York (Suffolk County) in 1920. To
me it seems like a very unlikely place for an illiterate Jewish tailor,
recently moved >from Chicago..."

Not really -- Patchogue, LI, which is about one hour east of NYC by car
today, had a considerable Jewish population in the early part of this
century considering its distance and relative isolation. The reason --
Patchogue's lace mills -- attracted a large number of immigrants. Others
went to become farmers. (it was the center of the poultry, especially duck,
farming area)

Part of my own family migrated there about 1910 and their descendants are
still in the area. I've gone through the 1920 Federal Census reel that
covered Patchogue as well as some New York State Census reels for the area
and observed a significant number of Jewish names.

You might also contact the Patchogue Public Library for more information
about local history.

For those of you who can visit west 17th St in NYC it might be to your
advantage to peruse the deposited records of the shtetls of your interests.
This is not the experience of click and scroll but personal perusal of actual
records. You will find lists of names, accounts of payments, cemetery
arrangements, minutes of meetings, booklets with interesting advertisements,
attention to organizational niceties and the like. Going through the boxes
containing the records of Gorodishche an Shklov was an opening into a
vanished world. You and your friends who can represent you will find a world
of genealogical insights.
