ROSENBERG, Brooklyn, about 1900 #general

JUSTICEOFP
 

My great-uncle Moses I. ROSENBERG lived on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn >from
1900-192?. My uncle mentioned four of Moses's children in his 1950s will:
Robert ROSENBERG
Mildred ROSENBERG SILVERSTEIN
Sadie ROSENBERG
and Eli ROSENBERG
The 1900 census for 51 Atlantic Avenue listed the children as Sadie age
20, Mollie age 17, Doria age 14, Robert age 7, and Fannie age 5.
In the 1910 census, Fannie was named Frances. Eli, the only child born in
the US, was 9 years old.
Sadie was working in her father's dry goods store.
I would like to learn the names of Moses's parents, more information
about the family, and where they may be buried.

what sources list siblings of deceased immigrants to Vienna? #austria-czech

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

A relative of mine immigrated to Vienna >from Galicia between 1893 and 1904,
and died in Vienna in 1905. I know his name, date of death, date of burial,
where he is buried in Vienna, year of birth, parents' names, siblings names,
and an address in Vienna. Based on non-Viennese sources, I strongly suspect
that a person who remained in Galicia and died after him was a brother of
his, but my attempts to learn that person's parents' names or other
information linking the two have failed.

What Viennese sources might supply the names of siblings, nieces, or nephews
of this person? I am unfamiliar with Viennese sources, but gather >from the
SIG website that the Heraldic-Genealogical Society "Adler" might have death
notices with such information. Is the Magistrat der Stadt Wien the
appropriate place to inquire about wills? Are there any other sources I
should consult?

Thanks very much and best regards,

They need $500 as a minimum to start translating records. At present

Holocaust Memorials #lithuania

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

Greetings,
I have just put online an updated version of my exhibition of Holocaust
memorials in New York and New Jersey. There are photos for more than
one-hundred and thirty such memorials, mostly >from plots located in New York
and New Jersey, associated with towns and cities in today's Ukraine and
Poland.

There are just five associated with locations in today's Lithuania
as far as I can tell, and all are in the New York metro area. The Lithuanian
towns/cities for which memorials have been erected are Dieveniskes,
Marijampole, Moletai, Seirijai and Ziezmariai. If anyone knows of any other
such memorials associated with Lithuania in the New York and New Jersey
area, please let me know. The direct link to this exhibition is listed
below, under my signature.

I am also presently constructing a similar exhibition for the memorials in
Europe, Israel and other countries of the world. This exhibition will go
online in the near future. If anybody has photos of such Holocaust
memorials, please consider sending them to me for inclusion in my
exhibitions. Through the generosity of your fellow researchers, I now have
such memorial photographs that were taken in eleven different Lithuanian
towns and cities, as well as >from towns and cities in Poland, the Ukraine
and Belarus, but of course I can always use more.

Thanks to all of you who have donated either material for this exhibition or
have already lent your time to this worthwhile project.

Re: TRUPIN origin puzzle #france

Eve Line Blum <eve.line.blum@...>
 

Concerning the TRUPINs, I don't know if all the followings are (were)
Jewish and it's impossible to know about it without asking them. I
just know that there are about 200 of them in the current French
directory, and there were about 800 births of TRUPIN in France
between 1891 and 1990.

Holocaust memorials exhibition update #belarus

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

Greetings,
I have now put online photographs of over one-hundred and thirty Holocaust
memorials that have been erected in various New York and New Jersey
cemeteries. Most are associated with towns and cities in Poland and the
Ukraine, but there are a dozen that stand in plots associated with towns in
today's Belarus. The towns/cities are: Antopol, Baranavichy, Disna, Globoke,
Grodno, Kobrin, Korelichi, Lyakhovichi, Pinsk, Pukhovichi, Shershevo/Pruzany
and Stolin.
You can access all of these photographs by clicking on the link below, under
my signature. The memorial listing is arranged alphabetically, first by
country and then by town/city. I certainly hope that you find this
exhibition as interesting and as moving as I have.

As I've mentioned in past, I am also currently working on a companion
exhibition for the Holocaust memorials in Europe. I have received some
memorial photographs >from my fellow researchers but can always use more.
Currently, I have memorial photographs that were taken in Minsk, Motele,
Pinsk, Posenitz, Stolin and Yanov. I also welcome photos of Holocaust
memorials >from any country, not only >from the United States and Europe, but
also >from Israel and other countries around the world.

Thank you once again to those of you who have generously donated both
material and your time to answer my queries. I am hoping to include English
translations of many of the inscriptions that appear on these memorials, and
once those who have offered their help send me their translations, I will
add these translations to the appropriate webpages for all to see. In this
way, those who cannot read Hebrew/Yiddish will know all that has been
written and can feel the full impact of its words.

I do hope you find my Holocaust memorial exhibition informative and moving.
I am so very grateful that I've had the opportunity to honor our ancestors
in this way, to share this with all of you, and to further memorialize those
who perished in the Holocaust so that we never forget them, nor what
occurred during this terribly tragic time in Jewish history.

Washington Cemetery question #general

Marty <mdmajor@...>
 

Dear Genners,

My great grandparents were buried in Washington Cemetery in 1891
and 1892. I wrote a letter to the cemetery addressing it to 5820
Bay Pkwy, Brooklyn, NY 11204 on February 3rd of this year which
included their names and the dates of burial asking for the
location of their graves and enclosed a sase and a check for any
expenses incurred. The check has not been cashed and I have not
had any response. In some places the address of the cemetery is
listed as 5400 Bay Pkwy, but at the United States Postal Service
site it says that address is non-deliverable and mail will be
returned.

In checking the Jewish Gen archives, there have been discussions
about Washington Cemetery a few years ago. I am wondering if I
should write another letter addressing it to the 5400 Bay Pkwy at
MacDonald Avenue or should I telephone to see if I could get
information over the phone? Is there a particular weekday that
is less busy than others?

Thank you.
