HFPJC Update-Part II-Cemtery Restoration Projects #general

hfpjc
 

Dear Genners,

Firstly, I'd like to commend those of you who have responded already to
my Part I posting and for your warm words of thanks and encouragement; I
will try to respond to all of them as soon as possible.
Well, following is a list of all those cemeteries for which there is
considerable interest among the families and descendants to have restored.
All of these have already been evaluated-the preliminary step-and are either
in various stages of preparations for the projects or are being seriously
considered and processed(i.e. actual work will be immediately initiated upon
signing of contracts between HFPJC and family members/descendants.) Once
again, if you recognize your ancestral hometown, or if anybody has any
information that might be beneficial to the projects, please contact our
office. Also, digital photos of these cemeteries are available upon request.

I know that many of you have some roots in
Satoraljaujhely(Eihel)Hungary, so this is bound to be of interest,
especially as I have received requests and inquiries regarding this cemetery
from many J-Gen members.:
Satoraljaujhely, Hungary
The Jewish cemetery(New) of Satoraljaujhely is a huge cemetery. Granted,
the first section of the cemetery is in decent condition, but the lion's
share of the grounds are so badly overgrown that it is often impossible to
reach the gravestones and countless stones are even completely obscured from
view. I am happy to inform you that we have recently commenced the major
task of clearing the grounds of all the bush and wild vegetation so that we
can get an idea of the amount of gravestones in that cemetery. According to
our rep who was there together with an experienced contractor, he
approximated the amount to be several thousand tombstones! Of course, only
once the cemetery is cleaned can we determine the scope of restoring all
the damaged and neglected gravestones. Furthermore, in light of the sloping
grounds of the cemetery, a plan for a drainage system for the rainfalls is
currently being studied by a special engineering team. I will keep you
posted as to the progress.

Dragmirestu, Romania
To be enclosed and restored internally. Project in latter phase of
preparation.

Guklivij, Ukraine
Cemetery open to all and in terrible condition. Descendants being
contacted-any others who have pertinent info.

Hajdusoboszlo, Hungary
Large cemetery, to be properly enclosed.
Gathering of interested family members and descendants in process.

Hajdubeszormeny, Hungary
Grounds severely overgrown; vegetation to be cut and cleared in near
future, followed by individual photographing of tombstones and maintenance
arrangements.

Paleu, Hungary
Very bad condition. Gathering of interested family members and descendants
in process.

Pap, Hungary
The erection of a durable, concrete enclosure to be commenced in coming
weeks.

Pir, Hungary
To be enclosed properly and restored internally. Project in preparatory
phases.

Rakhov, Ukraine
Retainer wall urgently required to support eroding earth. Gathering of
interested family members and descendants in process.

Strimtura, Romania
Erection of concrete enclosure to be commenced in near future, followed by
interior restoration.

Tisenic/Stropkov, Slovakia
Preparation for cutting wild vegetation in process. To be followed by
restoration of gravestones.

Urishor, Hungary
Interior to be completely restored. Project still in preparatory stages.

Valcau de Jos, Romania
Erosion posing substantial threat. Thorough research and correspondence with
Mayor yielded urgent(though very costly)need for a retainer wall. Project
still in preparatory stages.

Zhuravniki, Ukraine
Recently evaluated-complete results being studied and to be released
shortly. Cemetery in deplorable condition. (Project initiated by Yizkor
Book Project Coordinator Mr. Gary Gershfiel >from Forest Hills)

I will try to keep you updated with the developments of these cemetey
projects.

Best regards to you all and in this merit, we we all be blessed with a Happy
Jewish New Year!

Debbie Korman had asked about resources in Wichita, KS. Here is some
information that may aid her - as well as others - in her search in Wichita:
There is one Jewish Cemetary in Wichita. It is called Hebrew Congregation
or Hebrew Cemetery. It is on Oliver near 21st street. The main funeral
home for the Jewish population in Wichita is Downing & Lahey,
1-800-369-8784. The conservative congregation is Ahavat Achim, or Hebrew
Congregation, and the reform Temple is Temple Emanuel.
Debbie, if you need further information on the parties that you are seeking,
contact me privately and I will contact some of the old-timers in Wichita to
see if anyone can remember your relatives.

INS Manifest number - occupation column *help* #general

m most <mostranskym@...>
 

Hello,

I have thoroughly read through the website section devoted to
explanations to the manifest annotations:

http://www.jewishgen.org/InfoFiles/Manifests/occ/

and this did help me better understand my great grandfather
mastranski's manifest number in the occupation column: 1-430516-8-21-43

However - could someone tell me if there is actually any way to find out
more information >from this annotation? Does this number connect to
more than the fact that in 1943 the district he applied to was "1" and
therefore applied in either Boston, MA or New Haven, CT? I was hoping
I might find a way to connect this information with the actual
certificate of his naturalization - assuming one was carried out.

Can anyone confirm this or point me in the right direction please.

Thank you for a wonderfully informed website.

Regards,
Mike Mostransky

SCHULWOLF surname #general

Mila Begun <mmbegun@...>
 

What might be the origins or meaning (if any) of the surname Schulwolf?

The family branch with the name claims ancestry in Austria, or somewhere
in the former Austro-Hungarian empire, but exactly which part is unknown.

Thanks in advance. Mila Begun in New York.

Schlachtensee DP Camp #general

Have just received information regarding my aunt who was at the above mentioned
DP Camp in 1947 before arriving in the US. Would anyone know if there is an
organization, or agency, that I can contact that might have any records of the
individuals in this camp. It is identified as: UNRRA Camp 1027 - Berlin, Germany.
I take this to a United Nations facility. Any help in locating these records
would be greatly appreciated.

Earlier this week, I learned of the existence of a Pikholz descendant, born 1912
in Czernovitz and lived in Radauti, Bukovina.

Today I learned that she submitted a Page of Testimony in 1999 in her father's
memory. So she may be alive or may have living descendants. The 1999 Page
has an address in Mexico but no phone number.

I speak no Spanish.

Is there someone who would be willing to check this out for me?
This late in the day, educated Mexicans speak English too. That is even more
true for Jews in Mexico. I daresay that someone who filed pages of
testimony, even if she did so in Spanish, would have English. If nobody
volunteers to help you, you might try calling her yourself.

Translation of UK Marriage Authorisation #general

PETER HILLS <pmhills@...>
 

I would be very grateful for some assistance with translating the Hebrew entries
on the short London Marriage Authorisation for my grandparents included at
ViewMate 4733 ie go to

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=4733

When I submitted the certificate I originally asked for certain sections
only but it would be incredibly helpful for all the Hebrew to be
translated.. Only a few lines but vital for my research!

Please be kind enough to reply direct to me.

In return I would be happy to try and help with any research enquiries which
can only be done >from London.

Thank you.
