Harry GREENBERG - Liberty, NY 1930s #general

Roseanne Greenberg
 

I am looking for any information on where my grandfather, Harry
GREENBERG is buried. He lived in Liberty, NY and was probably
buried somewhere near there. He was born around 1885 in
Russia?, and died in 1936? (at the age of 51) in Liberty, NY.
Liberty, NY is upstate NY, near Monticello. His only son, my father,
Bernard Greenberg died in August, may they both rest in peace.

My family is in the process of deciding what to put on my father's
tomb stone, and I wish to have my grandfather's Hebrew name, but
I don't know where he is buried or how else to find out his Hebrew
name other than looking at the tomb stone.

I have tried searches of the S Social Security Death Index without
success. I am greatfull for any information, suggestions, or help
you can provide.

Thank you

Translation Hebrew to English - Headstone - Rev. Hyman CAPLAN #general

Eden Joachim <esjoachim@...>
 

Will someone kindly provide me with the Hebrew to English translation of my
great great uncles' headstone? The stone may be viewed at ViewMate as
Number 7714. The direct link is
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=7714

Reverend Hyman CAPLAN died in 1951 and is interred in Bushey Cemetery,
London, England. This was a surprise, as his wife, Sara, who died in 1912,
is in Edmonton Cemetery.

Many thanks to Leonie Flack of England for her performance above and beyond
the call of genealogical duty in finding Reverend CAPLAN's final resting
place and providing the photograph of his stone as well as a copy of the
Stone Setting (Unveiling) announcement >from the Jewish Chronicle.

Kindly respond directly to me, off list.

It's the marriage record of Eliasz Wajsbart & Jeta Ruchel Jakubowicz, in
1853 in Krzepice.

Searching GEDALIAVITZ, any spelling #general

Rachelle Berliner <rlberliner@...>
 

I am attempting to assist our Rabbi's wife. She is searching for her 3
maternal uncles. The surname is GEDALIAWITZ (any spelling) and there were 3
brothers whose given names are Levi, Yakov and Hersh. They lived in Apsha
(Yiddish pronunciation) in Czechoslavakia. The family is still praying that
two of them survived the Holocaust and escaped. I say two because they know
one was killed, but not which one. Many thanks in advance for your reply.

Re: Canadian information #general

david nathan <d.nathan1@...>
 

Hi Genners,

You really are a generous lot - and I make no apology for the pun.

Yesterday I posted a question about my uncle and aunt, Bert and Lisa NATHAN,
of Montreal, with whom we have not had any contact for over 30 years. No
less than seven people (and I am still counting!) have, so far come back to
me with suggestions, one of them almost certainly found definite information
of the kind I have been seeking. And all this is less than 24 hours
(including the time differences of between 5-8 hours)

This is truly amazing - and puts the Canadian statistics and records
authorities to shame.

I am based in London, England, in the north-eastern suburb of Ilford, so if
there's anything I can do to repay that assistance, please do not hesitate
to ask.

With sincere wishes for a happy Passover to all.

David Nathan, London, England

Re: Dutch Holocaust resources (follow-up) + #general

re: Dutch Holocaust resources (follow-up); Warsaw Ghetto performer/ Lodz
family members; Searching for author, Reich-Ranicki

1. Here's a follow up to my query about Dutch Holocaust resources. I would
like to first, thank everyone who were so kind to offer their help, time,
ideas, and share their contacts!!! I've had enormous success since I last
requested help through Jewish Gen newsgroup, including locating birthdates,
marriage records, obituaries, and a clarification of places where my
great-uncle lived in Holland. This quest started for me in the early 1980s,
but the hunt intensified this year to identify any type of material, all
without success. My e-mails to the Dutch Jewry site in Israel, went
unanswered, but that's okay.

I neglected to include the surname in my original post. The name of the
family was BRAUN. Josef BRAUN was a cantor in Arnhem and then, Amsterdam,
not the Hague (as per family lore). I can't say more since surviving
members have also have been located and the rest is pending!!!

2. I am continuing research about my original subject who lived in Poland,
possibly born in the Lodz area. I am trying to locate any people who might
remember her working as a singer in the Warsaw Ghetto with a talented group
of literati at the Sztuka Cafe. Her name was Pola BRAUN, aka Paulina
BRAUNOWNA. I have found and located a number of written accounts and some
original source material, but would like to correspond/ interview any
living "survivors" who may recall her, but I may have missed. Please e-mail
me for further details if you can help, or have ideas. She had family
members in the Lodz area...., and I'm related to her.

(Yes, I've already put out queries on the Lodz and Warszawa list, too)

3. At the moment, in the same search, I am currently trying to reach a now,
famous writer/survivor who lives in Germany by the name of REICH-RANICKI.
Excuse any spelling errors. Reich-Ranicki was a music reviewer in the
Warsaw before escaping the Ghetto. He used a pen name for his articles in
the Gazeta Zydowska. I tried to e-mail one overseas website, where he
contributes, alas without success. He's written a number of books and
articles and appears on TV a lot in Germany. I am hoping someone might have
a contact who will help me correspond with him, and ask him about family he
may have reviewed/ or known during his time in Warsaw as a music critic.

Sorry to write so long. Thanks again!!!
