Beirut Jewish cemetery online: Ashkenazi and Sephardic burials #general

Jeff at SG
 

In 1948 there were 24,000 Jews living in Lebanon, mostly in Beirut.
Today there are only 30 elderly individuals living in fear and the only
remaining vestiges of the Jewish community are the Magen Abraham
synagogue and the Jewish cemetery of Beirut. During the Lebanese civil
war the cemetery (in which a total of 3,300 Jews were buried) served as
a the boundary of the Christian Phalange forces, and though damaged by
bombs, was never desecrated by either side.

Nagi Georges Zeidan, a Lebanese Christian, undertook the task of
memorializing the Lebanese Jewish Community by researching its history
and creating a database of 3,184 tombstone inscriptions using both the
cemetery and civil registrations. The database - which includes both
Ashkenazi and Sephardic burials - is now part of the many searchable
databases in SephardicGen at

http://www.sephardicgen.com/databases/BeirutCemeterySrchFrm.html

Menachim Yehuda GALAS #general

Debbie Long <d_long@...>
 

Dear Friends,

Yesterday, I received a stunning piece of information >from the
International Tracing Service. My uncle, Menachim Jehuda GALAS,
apparently survived the Holocaust.

Jehuda, my mother's beloved brother, was born in 1920. He was in the Lodz Ghetto;
then deported to Skarzysko-Kamienna, then Buchenwald. He stayed in Buchenwald
until April, 1945, and then was apparently deported to Terezin.

Terezin was liberated in April, 1945, but I do not know what happened to
him or others liberated >from this camp.

I have a friend looking for Menachim in Israel using Israeli phone
directories, and I wrote to the National Archives in Prague yesterday.
Of course, if Menachim Yehuda is alive, he would be 91 years old... but
perhaps he has/had children. I have checked the Yad Vashem
database--nothing.

Do you have any suggestions as to where I could turn for more help? The
Terezin Ghetto website and other resources do not suggest what happened
to the prisoners after liberation.

Thank you for any help or suggestions you can provide.

New to genealogy? Not sure how to begin? How to organize? What JewishGen

missing data.

The tuition for Basic Genealogy is $70, however, if you qualify for the
Value Added Services by virtue of a $100 donation to JewishGen's general

translated into English. If it is possible, I would also like to have type
outs of the Russian Cyrillic script:

Four of the postcards was sent by Robert Belinkov, the husband-to-be of my
great grandmother's sister, Olga Nemchenok, one to an unknown man with the
surname Matizem and the others to Olga. The last postcard was sent to Robert
Belinkov >from an unidentified person.

Polack, Belarus) while Olga Nemchenok was born in Surazh, Vitebsk guberniya
(today Surazh, Belarus). They both met in Stockholm, Sweden, but later moved

Translation Request (Yiddish) - Postcard sent to my Grandmother in 1914 #belarus

smoody61@...
 

Hi,
I have a postcard that was sent >from Detroit to my
paternal grandmother Rose EINBUND in Pittsburgh
in January 1914. I'd like to have the card translated
from Yiddish to English.
The postcard appears to be >from someone named Abe
ADELMAN. I don't know if he was a friend of my Grandmother,
a suitor, or a cousin of some sort. The card was sent c/o my
grandmother's cousin Rubin SOLOMON [changed from
ZALMANOV]. My Grandmother came to the US, in July of 1913,
from Parichi (near Shchedrin) in the Belarus region of
Russia.

I've posted a request for the translation (Yiddish to English) on
Viewmate. The Viewmate ID is VM15094

Thanks (again!) for all of the great work in translating and
