To Howie et al:

You don't need to ask anyone to look up a telephone number anywhere in the
US. There are many online telephone books such as superpages.com,
whitepages.com, whowhere.com, etc. Phonebooks also exist internationally as
far as possible at http://www.infobel.com/teldir/.

Go to Google or whatever search engine and type in "telephone directory US"
and you'll get a ton of hits.

Re: Jewish death notices in the early 20th century #general

ac <anitac47@...>
 

There appears to be a mis-understanding about the purpose of
published death notices. In the U.S., this is a legal requirement
as claims on property, inheritance, and debt will need to be resolved.

Local law determines in which newspapers the names of the deceased
must appear.

This response has caught my attention because I was not aware of this
requirement. Do legal entanglements have to exist prior to the death or is
this just a matter of course. I ask because I never publishished nor seen
published announcements of my parents, uncles, aunts, grandparents, etc.
deaths. Am I misunderstanding this?

Thanks.

I am puzzled by this statement as I have *never* heard of or been informed
that publication of a death was "a legal requirement" in the United States. Is
this a requirement in Massachusetts or throughout the US? I would be most
appreciative if Pat Weinthat could clarify this.

My personal experience has been that paid death notices did not become
common-place and published in daily and weekly newspapers until the early to
mid-1930s. My grandfather died in 1929 and an uncle died in 1930, and there w
as no paid death notice or obituary in either the daily newspapers or the Jewish
weeklys. Ditto for my greatgrandmother who died in 1913.

Hi,
I will be making a very short visit to Vienna,

U.S. census, U.S. ports of immigration, etc.)are
available at this particular branch, Family History
Center in Vienna, Austria.
Please respond privately (by replacing the AT with @)

Mt. Hebron Cemetery -- success!(Krystonopoler) #general

Stephanie Weiner <laguna@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I had many replies to my inquiry, and not a few urgings to persevere and
contact Mt. Hebron again. Thank you all for your suggestions and
encouragement! I did so today, and indeed the fellow I sought is there;
the surname was misspelled in their database.

One question answered, though, frequently spawns one or more new
questions. So, not only do I have the exact location of the grave, I
also have the name of the landsmanschaft associated with the burial.

The cemetery spelling given to me was First *Kristinopoler K.U.V.* In
"googling" the operative term, I also found that either one or both of
the "I's" were also rendered as "Y's." I also learned that the AJHS has
a collection of NY County incorporations which includes the Independent
First Krystynopoler Sick and Benevolent Assn. And YIVO has in their
landsmanschaft collection information on the First Krystonopoler Sick
and Benevolent Society. I assume these are all one and the same
organization?

A translation on JewishGen >from Pinkas Hakehillot Polin suggests that
there may be an association with the town of Lwow. This would make
eminent sense, as the wife of the deceased was >from Lwow.

So, my new question is, can anyone provide more specific information
about this society? I ask, because I am in California and the locations
mentioned above that have information are in NY.

My experience with the INS is similar. The first time I wrote, I received a letter

because my mother accompanied her to the local post office to fill it out. When
I called the INS, I was told that I could re-open the case for an additional

the INS sent me a letter saying that they had just received my request and that

Pipik? #general

krippens <krippens@...>
 

Hello everyone,

Something triggered a childhood memory of the word pipik. I vaguely
remember jokes about Moishe Pipik, as in 'who do you think you are,
Moishe Pipik?'

I can't find the word in any Yiddish resource I have. Can anyone tell me
what 'pipik' means? Or where it came from, or what the joke about it is?

Much thanks
Karen Jo Rippens
