The popular Jewish name for Aschaffenburg was "Tochesmelocheszion"
Asch pronounced Arsh Toches
Schaffen make/do/act Meloches Burg castle/fortress Zion pronounced Tsiyon

Similar play was made on names of other German towns and cities.

Re: N.Y. death certificates for stillborn infants? #general

ldashman@...
 

Even when the birth occurred in a hospital, it is not always a simple task to
locate a birth or death certificate. My paternal gf's first wife gave birth to a
stillborn in Lebanon Hospital (Bronx, NY), who was buried on 27 Sep 1918 in Old
Carmel Cemetery. Hunting in the NYC Municipal Archives, the cemetery and the
hospital, I have yet to locate either a birth or death certificate for this child.
Of course, this event occurred during the first wave of the Great Flu Pandemic,
when hospitals were overwhelmed with patients, which may also account for missing
documents.

Dear Judy,

a search in the German Memorial Book confirms what you know about Isidor and Laura
GOTTHILF and provides the exact dates, you can access these data yourself through
the address http://www.bundesarchiv.de/gedenkbuch/directory.html

There is also a printed version of the Berlin Memorial Book which provides the last
addresses for them: It is Konstanzer Str. no. 65 in the Berlin district of
Wilmersdorf. With the help of this you may be able to gain access to the
residential information (Meldezettel) >from this Berlin district. Note that the Mr.
GOTTHILF's first name is spelled "Isidor" and Laura's maiden name is spelled
PLACZEK.

At the Czech website http://www.holocaust.cz/cz2/victims/document/17300 you have
direct access to Mr. Gotthilf's death certificate >from Theresienstadt,
unfortunately the spaces for the information about his parents remained empty, but
the cause of death is mentioned.

If you enter Laura's name, you get the same information as below, but can can also
see the transport numbers: narozena 17.07.1874 dívc(í jméno Placzek

David EINSIEDLER #general

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

I am saddened to report to you that David EINSIEDLER, one of the founding members
of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Los Angeles, passed on peacefully yesterday
at age ninety. He left eight grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.

His funeral is tomorrow, Thursday, April 2nd, at 1:00PM at Mount Sinai Memorial
Park in Hollywood Hills. The address is: 5950 Forest Lawn Dr., Los Angeles, CA
90068. Check in at the gate for directions. Their website is:
http://www.mt-sinai.com, phone: 1-800-600-0076

His son, Joey wrote: "He took great joy and pride in his work sharing his own
legacy and using his unique gifts to help others find their family heritage."

Born in Drohobycz, Poland (Galicia) in 1919, David devoted his retirement years to
rabbinic genealogy and was the author of "Rabbinic Genealogy: A Research Guide"
and countless articles on behalf of JewishGen's RavSIG and other scholarly
publications. He was an enthusiastic genealogist who contributed his gifts during
the early years of the JGSLA and continued to participate in our activities through
his published writings, his generous assistance to others seeking to discover their
roots, and his first-hand recounting of the joys and sorrows of being born and
raised in an Eastern European shtetl.

You can view photographs of David and his family in Drohobycz on the Museum of
Family History website: http://tinyurl.com/einsiedler (MODERATOR: the full URL is:
