Miodowa Street Cemetery in Krakow #poland

Brian Blitz
 

About ten years ago, there was a message posted to the JewishGen lists
regarding an ongoing project to index the names in one of the burial
registers for the Miodowa Street Cemetery in Krakow (supposedly 20,000+
names). Can anyone direct me to the results of that project? I am familiar
with the lists on shoreshim.org, but those lists do not appear to have as
many names.

Alternatively, does anyone know who to contact to have someone look up
information in the burial register?

Thank you.

Re: Suicide in San Francisco, More #general

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

After a comment >from someone regarding their grandfather's suicide which was
mentioned in the newspaper in San Francisco, I would like to amend a bit my prior
comments on this topic.

I did a little more digging and found that indeed there were many attempted and
full suicides or just incidents describing the method of death (taking prussic
acid) which left no doubt that death was caused by suicide. There were also many
suspicious deaths which might have been murder and/or suicide. These were written
up as newsworthy stories in the San Francisco Chronicle with all of the gory
details splashed out in print. For just one year alone, 1897, I found thousands of
mentions. With all of the details or clues so well-defined, any latterday Jewish
genealogical detective can determine for themselves what really happened!!!

So, while the families may not have mentioned the event, the newspapers might have
and in great detail.

indexes to recent California deaths? #general

Renee Steinig
 

I need to order the death certificate of a cousin who died in California in 2004.
According to the website of the California Dept. of Public Health, their average
processing time for a death record is 12 weeks. A faster alternative -- if I could
determine place of death -- would be to order the record >from the appropriate
county. Unfortunately, online California death indexes end in 1997 or 2000,
depending on the website, so they're no help. Are statewide death indexes covering
recent years available to the public at any repository in California? If so, where?

Thanks.

Sophia WARSZAWCZYK Smolian, poet philosopher #general

Mark Strauss
 

Dear Jewishgen enthusiasts,
I'm trying to find publications of my great-great aunt, Sophia Warszawczyk Smolian,
originally >from Kovno and Lodz, sister of my great-grandmother Anna Warszawczk
Markel.

In her death, notice published in the NY Times on 11/23/1933, it stated the
following: "Sophia Smolian, Yiddish poet and philosopher, widow of Oscar Smolian,
New York merchant, died yesterday at the home of her son... She was born in Kovno,
Lithuania, seventy six years ago. Her writings include two volumes of poems and one
volume of philosophy."

In researching yiddish poets and philosophers, I can not find any records of her
work. Does anyone have any knowledge of her publications? I would be most
appreciative.

Searching: Strauss >from Zeteny Slovakia; Berkowitz >from Slovakia; Markel (Margul)
from Lodz; and Brodie/Brody/Brauda/Broido >from Ketovsky, Vilna Gubemia, Lithuania
and Zizmai, Lithuania

I am interested in locating descendants of the Frank (b. 1830) and Louisa (b. 1836)
MANDELBAUM (MANDLEBAUM family), originally >from Bohemia, who settled in Sacramento,
CA, where their children were born. They later settled in San Francisco.

The children were:

H.M. (b. 1855) Mercedes (b. 1858) married Ludwig Arnstein and had three daughters
Helen, Gertrude and Mabel Louis

Fiesco (b. 1859) married Gussie. He was an attorney. Raoul (Richard or Dick) (b.
1861), married Winnie Goodkind. Moved to Denver and New York.

Camilla (b. 1863) Olga (b. 1865) married Sigmund L. Ackerman and had children
Robert L., Elizabeth and James A. She was a well-known artist.

Thank you,

Re: Suicide in San Francisco #general

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

It is usually unlikely that anything would have been mentioned regarding a suicide
unless it was first thought to be murder or something like. I doubt that the the
relatives would have put anything in the paper about it. However, it is possible to
look on-line for mentions of your relative in the newspaper of the day which was
the San Francisco Chronicle. Unfortunately, they have no mention of any such
person by that name.

However, there is mention in the 1918 San Francisco City Directory of a Philip and
Nina Halperin family living in San Francisco at 1152 Eddy. He was a cutter. He is
also listed in several prior directories. By 1923, there are several more Halperin
families listed: Edward and Helen, Nathan and Dora, and Samuel. In addition,
during this time, there was also a performer, Nan Halperin, who appeared in San
Francisco.

In 1918, there was a Morris Halpern, a trunk maker, living at 2553 Folsom. In 1923,
there is an Esther Halpern, widow of Morris Halpern, livng at 245 Silliman.
Perhaps this is the person you are looking for.
