JRI Poland #Poland Town Location #poland

Michael Goldsmith <michaelg32@...>
 

I've posted the excerpt of an 1860 birth record showing the name of a town
that looks like Sielce Binnie? Mokotow.

Does anyone know what the middle name is and where this town is to be found?
The birth record was >from Nadarzyn, near Warsaw.

The town name excerpt is posted at
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=16188

It seems curious that the town would have such a compound name.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen travel to Rotterdam around 1900 #general

Sharon R. Korn <s.r.korn@...>
 

My grandfather told of immigrating >from what is now Gargzdai, Lithuania by walking
across the Russian/German border to Memel, which is now Klaipeda,Lithuania, a port
on the Baltic Sea. He and others >from the same branch of the family arrived at
Ellis Island >from Rotterdam. I am wondering how they would have traveled >from
Memel to Rotterdam, by ship or by train. Does one way make more sense than the
other, perhaps in terms of cost, and is there any way I can find out? I don't
expect to find a manifest, but I would appreciate some suggestions as to how to
study travel methods.

The Bradlees that was acquired by Stop and Shop was a grocery store, not a
department store. I got to Boston in late 1967, a little later than the referenced
date. I recall a department store downtown, essentially across the street >from
Filene's (Filene's was a whole store, the Basement was merely the "sale annex"),
but I am unable to remember the name of that local department store. Perhaps
someone else can with this note as a memory jogger.

Bradlees.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Translation of Hebrew inscription on cemetery tombstone #general

I believe that this is a photograph of the headstone of my paternal great
grandfather Abraham Gelbert. It is located in Humenne, Slovakia. I believe that
he passed away in 1879.

The viewmate link is http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=16173

I would very much appreciate assistance in translating the tombstone inscription
into English. Please reply privately or through the response form in Viewmate.

Thank you very much.

I'm looking to find some information about a Rabbi >from Shargorod. His name was
Rabbi Hanoch halevi Krupnick (maybe spelled differently). He apparently died in
1905 and had a son named Ze'ev. I cannot find any confirmation of there having been
a rabbi >from Shargorod (or someplace nearby) or any Rabbi with that name. Is there
anyone who has any information that would either confirm or deny this rumour?

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Need english translation on Hebrew/Yiddish postcard #general

sacredsisters3@aol.com <sacredsisters3@...>
 

Hello All

I have just posted the front and back of a postcard that a coousin of mine just
sent me. I need every able person's help in getting the english translations of the
writing on the front and back. I believe the writing on the back is either Hebrew
or Yiddish. I also know that it was sent >from Russia to a Louis Mendelson in
Brooklyn-NY.

This of course is one family line that I have been working on for several years and
this is new information that was sent to me by a newly connected cousin. I am very
excited about this and need help in learning what all the writing translates too.
The view mate numbers are VM16190-16191. Any and all help is appreciated.
