Re: Bronxville/NYC #general

Dear Cousins,

Joe Hirschfield asked,

<<<I know there is a town in Westchester County, NY named Bronxville;
however I would like someone to let me know if there is also a section of
New York City called Bronxville. According to his NYC birth certificate
for 1908 one of my uncles was born at 457 Chester St. Bronxville. Since
it is a NYC birth certificate I have to believe that Chester St. is in
NYC, but where is Bronxville. I could not find Chester St. in a yahoo map
search. I also looked up Chester St. in the Morse list of changed street
names and it was not listed.>>>

There are two Chester Streets in New York City. One is in the Bronx,
and the other in Brooklyn. When looking for an address in New York City,
it is important to use the names of the specific boroughs. If you look
for "any address, New York, N.Y.," you may not find it if the location is
outside of Manhattan.

Map searches consider the different boroughs as different cities, just
like the U.S. Postal Service does. If it doesn't exist in Manhattan, they
might deliver you (or the letter) to the right address in another borough
if you're lucky, but it's not very likely to happen.

Chester Street in the Bronx extends for only two short blocks and does
not have a 457 on it. Chester Street in Brooklyn is 10 longer blocks and
does indeed have a 457. Moreover, it is located in Brownsville, the name
of a neighborhood in Brooklyn, which Pamela Weisberger noted in her reply
on January 5th.

It's also worth noting that by 1908 many Jews were living in
Brownsville, and that there's no Bronxville (town, neighborhood, street,
etc.) in New York City. For these reasons, I strongly agree with Pamela
that since it was a New York City birth certificate, Bronxville is most
likely Brownsville.

Re: The Pits at Paneriai, Lithuania #general

Eve Line Blum <eve.line.blum@...>
 

Answering the different recent postings concerning Paneriai
(Lithuania) : the link that may have been the source of a confusion
between Russians and Germans as responsible for the murders in
Paneriai may be the following. When they arrived in Paneriai in 1939,
the Soviets started to build a huge oil warehouse for the nearby
military airfield and they excavated deep pits to use for massive
fuel dumps. The construction wasn't finished as in 1941 the area was
occupied by the Nazis. Between July 1941 and August 1944 Paneriai
became the mass murder site of approximately 100 000 victims. The
executions were carried out by German units of SD and SS with help
from local Lithuanian police unit Ypatingasis Burys. They used these
pits to bury the Jews they killed. There are much information about
the killings in Lithuania in the book written by Alex Faitelson,
entitled "Heroism and Bravery in Lithuania - 1941/1945". It must be
reminded, once more, that 95 % of the Lithuanian Jews were killed
during WWII, mostly with (and because) the help of their Lithuanian
helpers. More than half of the 878 Jews >from France of the
convoy #73, who were sent to the Baltic States in May 1944 (among
whom was my own father) were killed in Lithuania too.

R' Yisrael of Ostrah #rabbinic

ben-ari <yrcdi@...>
 

According to a written note in my family, my gggreatgrandfather,
Yisrael of Ostraha, "was a mechutan of Rabbeinu Asher Hagadol of
Stolin and Haraha"k R' Mordechai of Lechovitz, as he (Yisrael) took
for his son Yosef, the daughter of R' Aharon of Lechovitz, etc."

I am trying to research this **Yisrael** of Ostraha. Did he have a
family name? (We think it may have been ROSENBAUM or SCHECHTER.) Can
anyone confirm this?

We are >from another of **Yisrael's** offspring, a David (of
Staroconstantine &/or Skalat). Does anyone have any connection to
this David son of Yisrael?

Wollanee Road #unitedkingdom

Anthony and Helen Kaplan <antkap@...>
 

During May last year I was stumped in locating Booth Street in the
Shoreditch/Whitechapel area. I was hoping to find the exact
house/road where my grandfather had been born in 1880 having, on a
previous visit to Mile End, found the exact and totally intact house
which the family had later re-located to in Globe Road, Mile End.

I posted a query to this group and received an immediate reply >from
Myra Waddell of Adelaide, South Australia, who resolved my problem in
a jiffy. She recommended a web site www.motco.com and the rest was
plain sailing. Thank you Myra. Booth Street is no more and it has,
with Prince Street, now become Princelet Street. No doubt that area
was shattered during the blitz.

There may, or may not, have been a Wollanee Road but this web site,
admittedly commercial (I would love to have a share
in it !), is well worth a visit. I do not retain the original query
concerning Wollanee Road that was posted to this site, so am unable
to respond directly to the writer. I have a gut feeling that the road
name may have been incorrectly pronounced or spelt.
Hopefully he/she will yet be able to move forward >from here.

I find it most intriguing and satisfying that problems of this sort,
and others, frequently elicit immediate responses to this list >from
every corner of our world. No doubt I'll bump into several
researchers in the East End when I hope to return to London on a
visit later this year.
