be going there soon and can help me out, please contact me
(jkrassner@...) and I will send you the 2 names and grave locations.

Nesvizh #general

Reed <reed@...>
 

Hi everyone. I was looking over the Nesvizh sig website, and happened
to notice that some people >from this town are buried at Mt. Judah
cemetery in Queens. What caught my eye, however, was the Section and
Block numbers, which are identical to the burial society that buried my
great grandfather and mother.

My great grandparents were buried by the Chevra Mishnayes or Mishnaioth
Shomrei Shabbat Association. Can someone please translate this? I know
this was also the name of the shul my great-grandfather belonged to on
the lower east side of Manhattan.

Also, in the same Section 2 and Block 5, apparently members of the
"Indep. Bros. of Nesveis" are buried.

My great grandparents lived in Bialystok, but I am uncertain as to their
towns of birth. I looked on the map, and Nesvizh is on the road out of
Bialystok to the east, but seems like quite a ways. However, I know
that my great-grandfather traveled frequently to Warsaw on business, and
also that members of the family lived in Warsaw, and probably Ostrow M.
and Zambrow.

Can someone tell me how likely it would be that my grandfather hailed
from Nesvizh? Does anyone know really how much traveling these people
did? On one hand you would think that they stayed in their little
shtetls, but I wonder based on my knowledge of my grandfather's travels.

Naming Traditions - Suicide #general

buffmufin
 

Hello,
I am wondering if there traditionally were any
rules/traditions/superstitions regarding naming a child after a person who
committed suicide. In trying to piece together possible family trees, and
in comparing birth and death dates, I am trying to figure out if certain
people may have been named for one of their parents' siblings who
committed suicide, or whether it is more likely they may have been named
for an ancestor further back in time (and perhaps on another branch of the
family tree altogether). Time frame is 1915-20. I couldn't find
anything on this in the archives.
Thanks in advance.

In three burials of my family between 1925 and 1941 two graves were under
the title of the United Hebrew Community and the other was Knesses Israel.
I could find no mention of these at the website of the NY Gen Society. If
you have knowledge of these entities please contact me.

Re: Town names #belarus

Dolph Klein <kledolph@...>
 

Uj-Bisztercze/Ujbeszterce is now Nova Bystrica, a small town, about 25 km
due north of Martin, Slovak Republic. N. Bystrica is in the district
(okres) of Cadca in the province (kraj) of Zilina.

Uj-Bela is now Nowa Biala, Poland, about 45-50 km NNW of Poprad, Slovak
Republic.

BIALY DUNAJEC, Poland is about 350 km SSW of Warsaw and about 40 km NNW of
Poprad. It seems to me that Bialy Dunajec unlike its neighbor, Uj-Bela, was
never a part of the old Hungarian Empire.

From: Gary Luke <feraltek@...>
The following town names are given for place of birth for a few parents in
the birth and marriage registers of Arva megye, 1886-1895. The registers
are in Hungarian. Would anyone be able to help with their current locations.

Uj-Bisztercze (maybe Trencen megye)
Uj-Bela (Szepes megye)
Bialydunajecz

Thank you
