Searching for Henry ALTMAN fm Zemplen #hungary

rsolhsol@...
 

I am looking for help finding where my grandfather
Henry ALTMAN was born. He was born on May 15, 1871 (He spoke Hungarian). I
found his parents Ignatz ALTMAN & Leni JAKOBOVITS who were marriage on
April 16, 1858 in Szacur, Galszecs, Zemplen. I found his sister Regina
ALTMAN born Oct.26, 1864 in Sztranjan, Zemplen, Hungary . His
brother Benjamin ALTMAN was born on MAY 15, 1868 in Ungvar. His brother Samuel
ALTMAN was born April 23, 1870 in Satoraljaujhely. I can not find him any
place. His naturalization paper is dated Feb 7, 1896 and there is NO
information on it. He immigrated on DEC. 12, 1888 in NYC. Any help would be
greatly appreciated.

Hello,

I am in search for a photo (or a way to obtain one) of a tombstone or
two in Nagy-Kosztolan (Modern Velke Kostolany, Slovakia).
Search in the known Slovakian cemeteries database did not bring any
results. Does anyone have another idea of how can I find such a thing,
knows of anyone who visits the area, or has any other advice?
The specific name I am looking for is Rabbi Bernat Lichtenstein who
died there in 1890 and supposed to be buried there, I presume
alongside his wife.

Thank you on advance,

Gravestone information needed from the Alter Judischer Friedhof-Frankfurt am Main #general

Karen Catania
 

Dear Jewish Gen,

I have been searching for my 2nd Great Grandmother's death for about
2 years now. Her maiden name was Gutel KATZ (KATZENSTEIN) born
December 20, 1829. Her married name was SCHOTT, first name she was
later called Julie or Julia.

I recently saw that on "Find A Grave" there was a Julie Schott who
died and was buried in the Alter Judischer Friedhof in Frankfurt am
Main. I would like to see a photo of this grave and know what it
says on the Headstone, and would also like to know if there is a way
to contact someone at the cemetery that may have more information on file.

This was the number on "Find A Grave" 127699872. If anyone can either
go there or find me someone who knows more, please contact me. I would
like to confirm that this was in fact her.

Thank you so much!

Given the anniversary of Kristallnacht, I notice that stories indicate

Does anyone know if records exist of those 20,000 arrested--like a

Re: Mt. Hebron cemetery, Queens, on-line info. #general

Ira Leviton
 

Dear Cousins,

Hanna Grossman found information via Find-A-Grave about two male
cousins buried at Mount Hebron Cemetery in Queens, and wants to
know if she can get more information about whether they were married
by determining who's buried in nearby graves.

She's in luck. Mount Hebron Cemetery has a database of all its
burials that's available on line at
http://www.mounthebroncemetery.com/search.asp

To see whether or not others with the same surname are buried in the
same section, she should type the surname and the society name in
the proper fields. If she doesn't know the society name, she can
type the first and last names of the deceased, and if she knows the
year of death she can add that to make sure she has the right person.
Once the society name appears, she should then go back to the first
step and type the surname and society name. If those people seem
reasonable based on age and date of death, she can investigate further.
Spelling in these cemetery searches must be precise, although a
portion of the surname or society name can also be used.

This method also works for
Mount Ararat Cemetery at

question about a Jewish orphanage in Fuerth #germany

Lin <lin2@...>
 

Hi GerSIGers,
I am wondering if anyone knows the name of a Jewish orphanage in Fuerth,
and anything about it. My grandfather, Max Levi was born in Markt
Berolzheim, in Bavaria. I am guessing he began studying there after his
father died in 1905. Evidently it had a very good school. My
grandmother's father, Abraham Buehler also lived there after his father
died as his mother could not afford to take care of all the children. He
would have gone to live there in approximately 1865.

If there is a way, I'd like to contact whoever has the records of the
orphanage. Perhaps they have some information on my Opa and
great-grandfather as students, maybe what they studied, etc.
Thank you so much, All the best,

Lin Herz, Palm Bay, Florida lin2@...

I have done a search and it doesn't come up in any library.

The following is the English translation of the page regarding Genisa on
the Veitshochheim Jewish Museum website www.jkm.veitshoechheim.de
"The Genisafund of Veitshoechheim
During the renovation of the synagogue was discovered there in the
attic an extensive storage religious writings, some textiles and
religious ritual objects such as phylacteries. It is a Genisa as
it existed in many ancient synagogues. There are writings become
unusable stored, which can not be destroyed by religious rule.
The Veitshöchheimer Genisa is the most extensive of its kind to have
been discovered so far in the German-speaking countries. In addition
to religious literature such as Bibles, prayer books, individual prayers
or rabbinic interpretations numerous secular texts such as fairy tales,
general Erbauuungsliteratur or historical works are preserved. In large
numbers also manuscript material was stored, such as invoices, letters
or journals. The texts are written in Hebrew, Yiddish or German language
and are mainly >from the 17th - 19th century. Since 1998, these findings
are inventoried under the Veitshöchheimer Genisaprojektes."
