In my city, Cleveland Ohio, there were 3 Jewish funeral homes which have
merged into one. They have been very helpful in locating burial locations
and family information.

I would think that small towns in America would probably only have one
Jewish funeral home.

Does anyone know if there is a national organization of Jewish funeral
homes? A listing might be a good resource for people searching for
information in cities other than their own city.

Genealogy Success Story and Lesson Learned (WAS: Minsk and Pinsk) #belarus

SingingTM@...
 

When I started researching my family history, one of the best pieces of
advice I received was to first contact living relatives, beginning with
the eldest. This has been very rewarding, both in terms of rekindling
lost relationships, and in learning about my ancestors and relatives.
It has also led to a lesson learned.

One of the people that I called and spoke with for the first time in 15
years was a fraternal uncle. He and his wife had warmly responded to a
letter that I had sent, and gladly provided all the information they had
about living relatives. In our telephone conversation, I inquired about
my grandfather's name prior to his coming to New York. After learning
this, I asked about my grandmother and grandfather's original home towns.
With a chuckle, my uncle told me "Minsk and Pinsk."

I was excited, and took this information as if it were carved in stone. I
joined Belarus SIG, researched Minsk and Pinsk through Jewish Gen and
Family Finder, and really dug in. Needless to say, I am now learning that
this was a little joke.

I now know that my fraternal grandparents came >from Romania-Moldova and
Poland. I have narrowed down the search to several towns in each of these
countries. It has been a real education for me. And I really appreciate
all the encouragement and assistance that I've received >from Belarus SIG participants.

Re: Wellington Bldg. #general

Harry Dodsworth <af877@...>
 

Bartholomew's Reference Atlas of Greater London (printed 1947)
shows a Maternity Hospital on Wellington Way at the intersection
with Bow Road so my bet is that this was known as the Wellington
Building. This is close to Bow Road Underground Station.

I visited the Tower Hamlets Public Library and Local History Centre
on Bancroft Road (Stepney Green Underground) last week and the staff
were very helpful. I wasn't doing Jewish research but I did notice
they had some microfilms of the Jewish Chronicle. This is an old
building but they have a tremendous collection of local records.
I'm sure they would answer this question without hesitation.

I'm sorry! Of course "Mosaic religion" refers to Jews, and so, there
evidently were Jews in Popiele. I guess that's what happens when you go
through email when you're half asleep.

Jim makes a great point. The newsletters of the Chicago-based Polish

societies regularly print translations of entries >from Slownik Geograficzny.

Note that one of the translations on the PGSA site is of the entry on
Galicia, which should interest us all.

Another place to check to see if the entry for your town has been translated
is PERSI, the Periodical Source Index, in which many of those newsletters
are indexed. PERSI is available online (subscription-based), on CD-ROM, and
at research libraries. The Allen County Public Library, which maintains
PERSI, will provide copies of articles for a fee. See

Zeleznikas from Lithuania #general

Laurence Kleinberger <lkleinb@...>
 

Hello
After a lot of research I assume that my grand-father could be born in
Kaunas(lithuania),may be in the town of Palanga.
His name was Yehuda Zeleznikas and he was born around 1906.
His father was a rabi.

Around 1920, Yehuda Kleinberger went alone in Palestine were he staid 5
or six years. Then , he went in belgium (brussel).
He dided with his wife Rivka Wagman in the holocaust.
Ifsomething sound familiar to you (even the name of Palanga), please
write me back, it's very importent for me and my mother.
