Dear Fellow Landsman of BDSandV,

In April of 2001 I sent an email where I used the words ......."I want to
start something".....regarding BDSandV.

Many of you responded and asked me to keep you updated. Pretty much
everything got in my way of answering you quickly and getting this
"something" started. Many of you may have known that this something was a
project of photographing the lansdmanshaften plots relating to our shtetlech
of BDSandV in the cemeteries in New York City.

I did start that immediately and took about 180 photos which are still on
disks.

Everything happened (professional and family obligations) to stop me >from
finishing this task...one of the greatest being a computer. I once again
have one and *desperately* want to bring this project full steam ahead.

I need to re-establish contact with all of you involved with BDSandV.
Please contact me ASAP so I can *start quickly* and accomplish this important
goal.

Sincerely,

David Priever

Re: Finnish Death Certificate - Not in NYC #general

s_wiener@...
 

Hi, Genners,

Regarding death certificates -I have learned that in
the New York Metropolitan Area (inc. New York City -
all the boroughs, Nassau County and northern New
Jersey) death certificates are not required by the
cemetery. They may be needed by the
mortuary/undertaker but the cemetery only needs the
burial permit and/or the transit permit and that is
all they have on file. This document has only minimal
statistical information: name, possibly DOB, DOD,
Location of Death, and cause of death.

I have called more than 15 cemeteries in recent months
and have found this to be true at all of them.

The staff at Beth David suggested that undertakers
keep their files for a fairly long time and that would
be the best place to look for additional information
or a copy of the death certificate.

While this may not be the rule elsewhere in the US or
the world, it does limit what help NYC area cemeteries
can provide us.

Shabbat Shalom,

Koln Jews were buried in Deutz (1857), as well as Bocklemuend (1934).
The latter is probably the most likely one.

Re: The name Berl #general

YASO <aizic@...>
 

Shalom,

Just so that Marilyn Sheridan (Miriam Sigal) >from Tucson, AZ
won't feel so bad about Berl = Berry

In Israel there's a nursery rhyme that children sing in Hebrew
and I've heard that it comes >from the yiddish, whenever children
see a snail in the backyard, garden or wherever, it goes more or
less, "Berele, Berele, come on out."

Which means that they are calling the snail, "Berele" and asking him
to come out of his shell.

My educated guess is that the wild bears that roamed around in
Eastern Europe probably ate too much "junk food," were extremely
fat and moved around at an extremely slow pace. Because of that I
presume our Eastern European ancestors also gave the slow moving
snails the nickname of "Berele,"

The point I made in my previous message and holds true here
is that we who live today several centuries away and in a different
world can not grasp if we do not find it in writing why they used
double-barreled names and why Berl=Berry=Snail etc.

In this long Berl discussion it is interested than no one mentioned
another "double-barreled," name with the use of Berl. In eastern Europe
all the Yisaschars also carried the name of Dov Berl.

Conventional wisdom here claims that it is due to the fact that blessing
Jacob gave his son Yisaschar was that he be strong like a donkey. Like
the American Democratic party the tribe of Yisaschar used the Donkey as
their emblem. But it seems that the Jewish mothers not being members of the
Democratic party did not want to call their child Yisaschar Donkey so they
opted for another "strong," animal, the bear (for the Republicans amongst
you, no, there were no wild Elephants roaming around in the forests of
Eastern Europe).

<< My great grandparents Bernard WALD and Esther SILVERSTEIN were German
Jews but I do not know which city in Germany they lived in. They owned a
shoe store. They married sometime between 1875 and 1879. In 1890, they had

In 1906 Abrahan married my grandmother Rosha COSUBSKY or KOSUBSKY of
Sosnowiec, Silesia [ now Poland ]. We are not sure if he met her in
Sosnowiec. My grandmother's parents were Joseph COSUBSKY and Rosha MELE.
Joseph worked in the Sosnowiec area as court scribe and Rosha sold milk.

Abrahan and Rosha lived in Danzig [ Gdansk ] between 1908 and1913 with
their children: Sarita Wald, Fanny Wald and Raul Jorge Wald

They immigrated to Argentina in 1913 on the boat Cap Finisterre.
