Dear Friends,

Having now tracked down the death certificates and
cemetery locations of my GG Grandparents Shimshon
Shmuel FRISCHMAN, and Mariam Ackerman FRISCHMAN ,
buried in Washington Cemetery, Brooklyn, NY, I would
like to try and connect with cousins descended from
them. After speaking at length with my 82 year old
father(may he be of healthy mind and body until 120!),
I have been able to determine the following:

1. Hannah FRISCHMAN (1875-1947) married Sam (Shaya)
KLEIN, had children and grandchildren, but
unfortunately, the last contact we had with them was
nearly 40 years ago.
2. Harry FRISCHMAN(1876-1939) married but no
children.
3. Leo (Yehuda)FRISCHMAN (1878-1945) whom I was named
for my father Robert FRISCHMAN's father, married the
former Rose SCHWARTZ, daughter of Josef SCHMULOWITZ
SCHWARTZ (he actually changed his last name, see a
previous post for explanation) of Scranton, Pa.
4. Mildred FRISCHMAN (1880-?) no additional
information available.
5. Morris/Maurice(Moshe)FRISCHMAN (1887-1945). I have
a marriage certificate for him showing his place of
birth as BEREGSZASZ, Hungary.
He had two children, Seymour (Shimshon
Shmuel)FRISCHMAN and Arnold FRISCHMAN. Arnie, A"H,
has a son, Mark FRISCHMAN, who lives in San Francisco.
6. Ella FRISCHMAN (1889-1943) married Joe MOLNAR of
EAST NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ. They had no children.
7. Dr. Louis (Eluzer, my middle name)FRISCHMAN
(1892-?) ,a pediatrician, married the former Winnie
Thompson. They had no children.
8. Matilde Celia FRISCHMAN (Tillie)(1896-1943) married
Herbert Wilkes. He had a pharmacy in Chinatown, NYC.
I have fond memories of meeting them as an 8 year old
in 1960. They had no children.
Any cousins out there?

Has Anyone Filled Out FOIA Form G-639, If So Can You Help Me #general

sacredsisters3@aol.com <sacredsisters3@...>
 

Hello All

I had the opportunity to go to the New york Public Library over the
weekend. Anyways I found my great-grandfathers name in the soundex of
the St. Albans Manifest Of canadian port arrivals. The only thing it
does is confirm that he indeed came through via canada first. I need to
acquire the actual record or copy of it. On the soundex card there is
written Ellis Island Registry File and there is a number. I called
another facility and explained how I wanted to acquire that
information.

The gentleman told me to download the FOIA form G-639 and send it to
the (INS) office in New York. My question is how do you fill out the
form and what information is needed. So, if anyone has already sent in
Freedom Of Information Act form can you give me some pointers. Its kind
of confusing to me, and I am not sure what I am supposed to put down.
The person I am acquiring the information on is deceased for many
years.

Any help is appreciated.

Re: Translation Help - Difference between Karczmarz/Szynkarz/Arendarz #general

Grzegorz Kowalski <gregg@...>
 

My earliest records of my SZMETERLING aka KALMANOWICZ branch are in Kraszewo
Gaczulty, a very small villiage northwest of Warsaw. My gggg grandfather
and his brother both had the occupation of "szynkarz", which I understand to
mean a tavern/inn keeper.

I have found, however, 2 other individuals in the same villiage, at the same
time, with no obvious family connection, who are described as "karczmarz"
and "arendarz".

Can anybody provide me with the nuances of meaning between these 3
occupations.

David Colman
Toronto, Ontario
Basically, "karczmarz" and "szynkarz" mean the same, i.e. inn keeper.
"Arendarz" was generally a lessee, i.e. a person who used to lease a
property of the landlord, usually a mill or an inn, therefore,
"arendarz" was also usually associated with inn keeper.

All these words are obsolete >from the point of view of modern Polish
language.

Best regards,

ED Finder for 1940 US Census #general

Diane Jacobs <thegenie@...>
 

I just learned that Steve Morse is working on a one-step ED finder for
the 1940 census just like he has for the 1930 census. That means we
will be able to do lookups by address in the 1940 census. This will be
very important because on opening day (April 1, 2012) we will not be
able to do lookups by name -- NARA doesn't have a name index and the
commercial websites will not be able to start building their name
indexes until after the census is opened (they will have no advance peeks).

Steve plans on having tables for about 200 cities in the 1940 ED
finder. If you want to make sure that your particular city is covered,
or find out what you can do to make sure it is covered, I suggest you
send a message to Steve. His e-mail address is on the top of his
website - http://stevemorse.org

Re: Cape Town Cemeteries #southafrica

Richard Newman <genserch@...>
 

Louis and Colin shalom,

Perhaps I can jump in and explain. I started this database last year prior
to my leaving Cape Town. based at the UOS offices, I had full access and
willing assistance to all the records of this office which go back many
years.
As there is a division in the CTown Jewish burial ''system'' I had full and
free access to the Gardens Synagogue records, going back to 1880.
Wherever I came across a grave where there was any doubt, I had contact with
the municipal authorities.

With these tools in hand and graciously equipped wit ha digital camera and
top of the range HP laptop, I would photograph a row of stones, downloading
to an Access database (which I setup and specified the fields) and spent
endless hours in the office recording on this database the details on the
matzevot.
If there was any unclear detail, I would double check the next day at the
cemetery.

This is a slow process and I am sure Boris is doing a speedier job. I
managed over 1000 entries of an estimated 30 000 Jewish graves.

This UOS-BOD project is a great endeavour and I am pleased and proud to have
initiated this.

Hope this will be of help in answering some of your questions. The project
should cover Pinelands 1&2, Woltemade Gate 8, 7th Avenue (Kensington) and
Muizenberg. the original Woodstock/Salt River has been done as are some
efforts in the aforementioned cemeteries.

Dear Colin,

I am not sure what you mean you you say "cataloguing all the graves in
Pinelands". If you are saying that Boris goes to the Pinelands cemeteries
and makes a list of the grave stones, then I think that he will not create a
full list, because there are many graves without grave stones. I think that
a more effective list may be gleaned >from the local authority's office in
Whale Street.

The fact that Boris has been commissioned to do this task begs a further
question, namely, how were the lists of Pinelands 1 and Pinelands 2 for the
S. A. Jewish website compiled?

And surely the Chevra Kadisha must have some record system? Surely they
can't bury someone without a Death Certificate? Where do they keep all the
Death Certificates?

Berlot/Birlad research for Plitt Family history #romania

jane plitt <jplitt@...>
 

Hi, all!

My adult son and I plan to journey to Rumania this Oct. to search out
family roots. In preparation, wondered if anyone had had success
hiring a local Rumanian researcher to do family research? Also are
there any experienced trekkers who hired guides, and do you have
names or any other advice to share? Names, emails, phone numbers,
addresses, all welcome.

According to my grandfather's naturalization papers, his European
home was Berlad.

Finally, by chance, are there any Plitts out there that we might try
to connect? Most Plitts were German Christians, but there seems to
be an interesting number of Jewish Plitts in Besserabia.

Thanks to all.
