Home congregation--19th Hungarian custom #general

alex miller <alexpmiller@...>
 

Under what circumstances--if any is a man who marries and moves to the
wife's distant village still considered memeber of his home
congregation.

The question applies primarily to 19th century custom in today's
western Slovakia.

Rabbi Eliezer of Rozhinoi, mid 19th cent. #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

According to tradition my ggreatgrandmother grew up (as an orphan?)
in the home of Rabbi Eliezer of Rozhinoi (I don't know his family
name) during the mid 19th century. The Eliezer was probably a relative
or in close touch with the Volozhyn family.

Can anyone identify this Eliezer and still better, if anyone has
information on his children or "adopted" children who may have grown
up in his home.

Moadim Lesimcha/happy sukkot.

Kamenets Podolsk Archive #general

Two months ago, Scott Schultz posted on Ukraine SIG about a source in The
State Committee on Archives of Ukraine for Kamenets Podolsk records.
(You see that in the archives.)

I wrote to the woman he referred to and she promptly replied that some of
my questions she could answer and for others she gave me alternate
addresses for inquiry.

Last week, I received scans of two birth records, one >from 1904 and one
from 1878. So thanks to Scott for that.
As an aside, I almost missed the reply itself. The scans were sent as
attachments in Cyrillic characters, so my spam filter threw them out.
Fortunately, I am aware that sometimes it throws out good mail, so I have
a look before deleting permanently.

I have posted on View Mate an 1881 record of a stillbirth of my ggf

with deciphering the handwriting. I believe it is in German. One
of their gd's is still living and would love some information on them.

Mount Hebron Cemetery in Flushing, NY #general

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

Alan S. Karan posted about Mt. Hebron Cemetery. He remarked in part:

"I think they would also have the funeral home, persons paying for the
burial, contact person and etc., on paper files. Does anyone have personal
knowledge on how to obtain this information at Mount Hebron? The deceased
are cousins that I am researching."

My remarks are:

Some of this depends on how far back the burial was. Not all burial records
have the same quantity and quality of information. A funeral home does have
to call the cemetery to arrange for the burial, so one would think that they
would have the name of the funeral home (though not the name of the person
paying for the burial, as that person pays the funeral home, not the
cemetery.) They most often have the name of the person who is the contact
for the burial, though this isn't always the case, nor would the person
necessarily be alive, etc. However, if you are not immediate family, they
will not generally give you such information, since this information is
considered to be private, so....
You can try showing up at the cemetery office in person, but this might not
help unless you tell them you are part of the immediate family and can
convince them of it.

Saying that, assuming you can view the death certificate, you might be able
to learn the name of the funeral home which is often listed on it. However,
depending once again on how far back the burial was, the funeral home might
no longer be extant.

NARA Visits - Bring Photo ID #general

Ellen and Sal Barbieri <elsal@...>
 

Several yrs ago I visited NARA in Washington, DC. In addition to needing to
get a free research card, I was required to show photo ID to enter the
building. I was fortunate to have it as I often thin my wallet when on
vacation. Also, for some research rooms, I had to put my purse in a locker,
so best to bring a minimum of valuables, cash, credit cards etc. Just bring
enough money for printing & a pencil.

Ellen Barbieri - Researcher #8682
San Diego, CA
Researching: ZYMAN, MARCUS - Lubowo now Liubavas, Lith); ZYMAN, KAPLAN,
KRAMARSKI, KANOWICZ - Suwalki;
FRYDLANDSKI, JAWORKOWSKI - Filipow; GOLDBERG - probably same general area.
All to NYC via England 1869-72.

The name Schneur Zalman #general

ewolfson
 

Geners:

I am assisting a cousin with tracing his father's side of the family.
Based on an old ketubah and some headstones, I found his NEWHOUSE
ancestor was named Schneur Zalman. This individual would have been
born ca. 1850-60. The story was that the family hails >from a town near
Minsk, but based on some ship manifests I have reviewed, I suspect
rather that the family moved around a bit and may have lived in both
Crottingen (Kretinga, Lithuania) and Dvinsk -- probably as NEUHAUS.

I am wondering whether Schneur was almost invariably used to denote
adherents to a particular Hassidic stream, such as followers of Rabbi
Schneur Zalman of Liadi, or if it was a common enough name amongst
all Jews. I know Zalman is quite common, but I have not seen Schneur
as often.

I have read one website, which indicates the name is a combination of
"Shnei Ohr" meaning two lights.

Thank you.

Evan Wolfson
