cemetery statistics #belarus

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

Can anyone supply or suggest where to find statistics about the state of
Belarussian cemeteries and their documentation? I am especially interested
in quantified descriptions of:

1) the rate at which the cemeteries are being destroyed (by natural or other
means)

2) the rate at which inscriptions on the matzevot are becoming illegible

3) the extent of written or photographic documentation of the matzevot

If there are any standards by which cemeteries are considered endangered, I
would also be interested in knowing which Belarussian cemeteries qualify.

Thank you very much and best regards,

Yes. There is a Centre for Jewish Documentation(CDJC) in France. They
have original documents. You can write to them. They are now "Memorial de la
Shoah". I don't have their new address but I'm sure you can google it or
you will soon get a response >from a member of the French SIG.
Good Luck,

1. Poland to France

Subject: Poland to France
From: "TE" <tome1111@earthlink.net>

X-Message-Number: 1

Some of my relatives left Poland around 1918 and went to France. I was
told
that we had relatives in France who they went to see. They left LeHavre
to
the U.S. around 1920.

Recently, I was on the Yad Vashem and looked up the last name, and saw
that
there were people with the same last name who were born in Poland around
1864-1899, and were deported >from France (Drancy and Compiegne)to
Auschwitz
in 1942.

I'd like to find out if there are any pre/post 1942 French records that I
can access, which will tell me about these people, and who their parents
were??

Thank you,

Re: 1902 New York City directory Make sense of this please #general

ilyaz <ilyaz@...>
 

Stan,
thank you for your suggestions. Unfortunately, I cannot agree with some of
them.
First of all, in this and other similar NYC Directories, the profession and
the work place are listed first. In this case, "physician 54 Eldridge"
supposed to be place of work. Second, both other places looks more like the
work, not home, particularly because the home address is preceded usually
with an "h", which is absent in our case.
Your suggestion about "extracts" is plausible since this person used to
list his profession in the past as "apothecary".
Thanks for your help.

May someone please make sense of an entry in the 1902 New York City
directory?
The exact quote is as this:
< Abramson Max physician 54 Eldridge, extracts 76 Forsyth & manager
118 Canal >
Looks to me there are 3 work places, but no home address. What these
work places could be? Why there is no home address? What extracts
means in this context? What could he manage at 118 Canal?
Any clarification and explanation will be appreciated.
To me it looks like he lives at 54 Eldridge.
On January 21, 1985, a fire at 54 Eldridge Street killed two tenants and
left 125 people homeless

This type of monuments are common in Jewish cemeteries (at least in the US)
as well.
If Jews ever thought that this was a "Christian symbol" that might
explain why in some London Jewish cemeteries, instead of a broken
branch, one sees a broken column (as in an architectural style
column).

And we (in the US) also have the broken column.
