I have copied the whole URL and was not able to access the Yiddish Theater
Alliance. I'm wondering if anyone was able to access the site? Thanks in
advance to anyone who might answer this query.

Moderator's Note: An alternative to finding the members of the Yiddish Theatre
Alliance buried at Mt. Lebanon, try the following.
URL http://www.mounthebroncemetery.com/search.asp
On the Mt. Hebron page, Enter Block 67 and Reference 1 and Hit Search
That will take you to the first 200 names of members of the Alliance.

followup Mt. Hebron Cemetery/Yiddish Notables #yiddish

DElliot874@...
 

In the superb documentary "The Komediant" on Pesachke Burstein and the
Burstein family - there is a moving scene of a visit to Mt. Hebron cemetery by
Lillian Lux and the family to see Pesachke's grave & the graves of other Yiddish
notables. Sadly, Lillian Lux has since passed, and I assume she is buried there
too. The movie is a 'must see' - and its website is 'thekomediant.com' .
Also, I purchased a CD of LIllian Lux which is a compilation of songs >from her
career; one of my favorites is her singing 'Jerusalem of Gold' in Yiddish. She
had the most beautiful voice.

Also, if you're taking the bus trip to Mt. Hebron Cemetery - you may want to
also visit the grave of the The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel
Schneerson. It's very moving, and even more so before the Jewish Holidays.

How to Identify Time Period on Photographs #general

Carolyn Lea asked ... "if anyone can recommend a book that is helpful in
dating an image based on fashion?"

The genealogy magazine "Family Chronicle"
( http://www.familychronicle.com/ )
regularly runs articles in which photos sent in by readers are dated
...
and they have published two books (available at their website) based on
those articles: "Dating Old Photographs"and "More Dating Old Photographs".

burial for 1884 death in Marylebone #general

cecilia <myths@...>
 

What is the most likely cemetery for a woman who lived and died in
1884 in Marylebone, London, and where do I go to look at its records?

(Would the same location apply if she had died in the mid 1850s or
1870s?)

I received several very helpful answers to my query concerning the port(s)

NYC Public School Records #general

David Priever
 

Hello Fellow Jewishgenners,

In early April several fellow genealogists responded to a posting I made on
my continuing efforts to assist in making "Archival" Student Records
available >from NYC Public Schools.

I had made this offer in the past with varying degrees of success in
locating the requested record.

This time around I failed in my attempt to help only due to a situation that
was beyond my control and I was unable to fulfill any of the requests made.

I apologise in advance and hope to be able to personally apologise to all
the people who made these requests at the JGS conference.

Sincerely,

David J. Priever

Re: Access to Lezajsk #general

We have been informed of a new procedure for visitors to
Jewish cemeteries in Poland. It is in place for only a few
of them, but it is advised to phone or fax to be sure of access.
In particular, anyone visiting Lezajsk cemetery in Galicia (south of
Lublin about 2 hours), and maybe other places in Poland, should be
aware that a new procedure is being instituted requiring visitors to
procure a key (for a small fee to help cover the cost of
maintenance) >from the responsible Jewish authority prior to going to
visit these sites so as not to be surprised and upset if the gate is
locked! Apologies to those inconvenienced up to now!
Please contact Ms. Monika Krawczyk at the Foundation for the
Preservation of Jewish Heritage in Poland for details.

Re: Expulsion of Jews from Galician front lines to Russia 1915 #general

Mel Comisarow <melcom@...>
 

There is some information about expulsion of Jews >from Lithuania to
Ukraine circa 1914 in the book Mendel's Children by Cherie Smith, ISBN
1-895176-85-9. These Jews were traders who had German suppliers and
customers, hence the suspicion of the Tsarist regime.
