To all,
I recently posted a request on Viewmate for a
Yiddish translation. The response was wonderful!
Even though I have thanked the responders
individually, I would like to send another Thank
You to all, and to Jewish Genealogy and the staff
for making this service available.

I had not used Viewmate in a while so I found the
new features fantastic.

Again, thank you to all.

Re: Who's Babies are they? #general

Ira Leviton
 

Dear Cousins,

Jessi-Ann Rosenbomb asked how to determine the parents of babies, which
she found in the New York City cemeteries with on line databases, when
there are several adults with simiilar surnames in the same society plots.
She hasn't been able to find these babies in the on-line database of New
York City deaths.

If the date of death or burial isn't in the cemetery's on-line
database, call the cemetery to obtain it, and also get the age if they
have that information. Then look up the surname in the N.Y.C. database
using Steve Morse's New York City death records search, limiting it to the
year of death (include a limit on the age if you were able to get that).
If you *don't* use a first name, you'll identify babies who didn't have a
first name on the death certificate, but did when they were buried (that
wasn't a rare occurrence).

Now comes an additional part - some baby burials were actually
stillbirths. They're not in the on-line New York City database. However,
beginning in either 1937 or 1938, in the New York City death indices,
there's a listing of stillbirths that can be viewed in the Municipal
Archives (through 1948) and the main branch of the New York Public Library
(through 1982, I believe). If the cemetery has the age, it will be
obvious whether it was a stillbirth (sometimes they're listed as S/B on
maps).

If you get a match this way, then the parents names' should be on the
death certificate at the Muncipal Archives. I'm not sure of the
information available for a stillborn, but maybe somebody else can let us
know. I'm also not sure if there is an index of stillbirths before 1937
or 1938.

JGenrs,

I am searching for descendants of Herschel (Tzvi) & Chana BORNSTEIN nee
EDELSTEIN who immigrated to Israel >from Pulawy, Poland about 1932. Chana was my
great aunt. Tzvi passed away in 1970 and Chana in 1986. Chana submitted
many Pages of Testimony to Yad Vashem remembering family members lost in the
Holocaust.

Prior research has indicated possible grandchildren living in Israel as
listed below but do not know how to contact them for confirmation. They are:

Chanoch Bornstein living in kibbutz Ein-Hashofet
Chana Yavzuri nee Bornstein living in kibbutz Mishmarha'emek

If these names are familiar or anyone lives in one of these kibbutz I would
appreciate you having them contact me. If not, can someone please tell me
how to write to them.

Please respond privately.
