Looking for gravestones in Plzen #austria-czech

Thomas Anninger <tanninger@...>
 

I am planning to go to Plzen in a couple of weeks to look for the
gravestones of my great-great grandparents, David and Sofie ABELES.
David Abeles was born in Waltsch in May 1809 and died in Koimice on 5.3.1911
at the age of 101. He was buried in Plzen on 7.3.1911. Sofie Abeles was
born in Zierau (Sioem) in 1814 and died in Koimice on 9.3.1911 at the age
of 97. She was buried in Plzen on 12.3.1911. As you can see, Sofie died
four days after David.

I would be grateful if any of you have any experience, contacts or
suggestions that you can share with me on how to find the cemetery in
which they are buried (apparently there are three in Plzen) and how best
to locate the stones. I have had luck going >from stone to stone in Dolni
Bolikov, but I fear Plzen is another matter.

Thank you.

BOYARSKY: Boston street c.1898 #general

SBSeales
 

I'd like to know if anyone can decipher the name of a Boston street
from an 1898 passenger manifest.
from the Ellis Island database, the link is as follows. The passengers
are Hate and Libe BOYARSKY. I'd also appreciate any guesses as to the
initials of the person they were going to.

http://tinyurl.com/2o422q

For the record, these ladies were >from Mosty and Tereshki in Grodno,
and were most certainly relatives of my grandmother. There were quite
a few of my grandmother's relatives in Boston by 1900, including my
grandmother, but none appear in the 1900 census. I've tried every
spelling imaginable. Some appear in a 1904 street business directory.

Thanks in advance,

Re: Sobrance Archives in Slovakia #hungary

Shalom Shaul,

The locations where you will find vital records >from Sobrance area
varies depending on the years and places you are researching.

The FHL has filmed 1848 Census records >from Szobrancz jaras. Most or
all of these records on FHL INTL Film 719826 have been transcribed by
H-SIG volunteers and are included in the All Hungary Database. I am
transcribing 56 pages of Jewish records for communities in the
western part of Szobrancz jaras that I found in the Hungarian State
Archives. These records are >from 1762-1865. Film # is A5583. Check
H-SIG archives or contact me off-list for additional info.

Some records >from mid-19th century to 1895 for communities in eastern
part of the district including communities now in Slovakia and the
Ukraine are in the Uzhorod archives. Some civil records >from 1895
may also be located in Sobrance or Krcava.

If you are looking for records after 1895, I would start by writing
to local or regional (Presov) archives.

According to letters I received in response to inquiries submitted to
Presov, some records may be in Satorjaujhely, Hungary. I have not
been able to confirm the accuracy of this information.

Does anyone happen to know which archives hold personal records of
the Sobrance area in eastern Slovakia? I'd appreciate it if someone
can send me the address.

I inadvertently left out part of the link to the passenger manifest
for BOYARSKY.

The entire link is:http://tinyurl.com/2o422q

I'm hoping someone can decipher the name of the street Hate and Libe
BOYARSKY were going to, and what the initials of their relative are.

Thanks!

He: Burial simulation in Bnei Brak #general

Sam Lenger
 

Hi all

Someone in one of the branch of the family told me a story about a burial
that should take place in Bnei Brak in the early 50's of a Rav that perished
in the Holocaust and his remains were being brought to Israel. The Israeli
police receive a denounce that this was a simulation and no remains were in
the coffin. The coffin was opened and there were no remains.

If someone can confirm this story and give details about it (especially the
Rav's name) I would be very grateful.

Pls. answer privately.
