I recently posted a request for information about a US citizen, Harold
Griffith NELSON, who was killed in 1918 while serving with the [British]
Royal Flying Corps. I particularly wanted confirmation that he was Jewish.
A number of helpful replies came >from the USA, for which I am grateful.
from the information they supplied it is quite clear that he was Jewish.
Many thanks to all who replied.

Since my recent posting on this topic, i've heard >from a few
'genners...and learned of a book,
The Old Jewish Cemeteries of Newark
by Alice Perkins Gould
This book is available through Avotaynu.
http://www.avotaynu.com/books/Newark.htm

One genner wrote that the author of the book had a map of the cemetery
and database of the plot numbers of its occupants, and by contacting
her he was able to find the graves of his grandparents.

Happy Hunting!

Norway's Digitalarkivet also includes the census data for 1664-1666, 1701,
1801, 1875, 1885, and 1900. It also includes parish records, real estate
registrars, probate records, and much more. The parish records were a
treasure trove of information for me when I was researching my Severson
line. The homepage, which contains links to all of this information, is at

Re: Wedding witnessed by relatives 1860 - Galicia #general

Russ Maurer <RMaur@...>
 

Thanks to those who replied to my inquiry, both to the list and
privately. As several correctly inferred, I was looking at a
record >from a civil register, not a religious marriage document
(Ketubah). It was thus a record of a civil, rather than
religious, ceremony. While I was aware of the existence of both
kinds of ceremonies, what I had not appreciated was that the
witnesses to a civil ceremony did not have to, and generally did
not, meet the religious qualifications mentioned in my post.
Now I know.

My name is Pamela Foote, and I am very glad to find your list! My
areas of research are, currently, Sweden and, more, particularly,
Estonia, 17th & 18th cents. Am also curious why a Jewish population
would be there, who had some Rhineland roots. Thanks, Pam Foote

Zhitomir Rabbinical Seminary #ukraine

David Goldman
 

Greetings. I have just joined the SIG.
from among a bunch of old letters in Russian that I have been reading that
my great-great-grandfather, Naftali Binder, attended the
government-sponsored rabbinical school in Russia, in Zhitomir, which was
open between 1845 and 1885, and which served as a teacher's college for 10
years as well. It was closed down in 1885.

Does anyone know if it is possible to find any records >from that
non-traditional (government-sponsored and initiated by maskilim) school
where he must have been in the 1860s?? I was thinking that the records may
have disappeared since it was only in existence for 40 years and closed down
almost 130 years ago.

Thanks,
David Goldman
