Marc, no last name, inquired about Bnai Jacob Cemetery in Lodi, NJ.

JGS, Inc (New York) has a very comprehensive listing of NYC area cemeteries
at http://www.jgsny.org/directory, including addresses and contact
information if it exists. Its always the first place to look when trying to
locate a NY area cemetery.

I am searching for my great, great uncle, Max ALPER, who is likely
resting at Bnai Jacob in Lodi. This seems to be a small cemetery
with no contact information.

JGS NY Meeting November 15 #general

Harriet Mayer
 

Jewish Genealogical Society NY Meeting Sunday, November 15th at 2 PM
at the Center for Jewish History, 15 West 16th St. New York NY

Speaker: Glenn Kurtz
Program: "Three Minutes in Poland"

Glenn Kurtz, author of the the award winning book, "Three Minutes in
Poland," will speak about his four-year journey to identify the people
in the three minutes of 16mm film that his grandfather shot while
traveling in Europe in August 1938, only one year before the outbreak
of World War II. More than seventy years later, through the brutal
twists of history, these few minutes of home movie footage, capturing
ordinary life in a small, predominantly Jewish town in Poland, would
become a memorial to an entire community and culture annihilated in
the Holocaust.

Glenn Kurtz's essays have appeared in the New York Times, Salon and
Southwest Review. A graduate of Tufts University and the New England
Conservatory of Music, he holds a PhD >from Stanford University in
comparative literature and has taught at Stanford, San Francisco
State University, and New York University.

In addition, at 12:30 in the Kovno Room: Bring your lunch and meet
with fellow JGS members and experts in an informal setting to share
research stories and ask questions.

Date: Sat, 7 Nov 2015 09:32:16
I think I found their marriage certificate that Herbert might be
looking for, and I've posted to http://imgur.com/uWcF2Sn

Groom: Siegfried Samuel (Male)
Birth Date: 3 Jan 1853 in Glogau, Age: 33
Son of Lazarow(?) Samuel and Friederika MUNK
My comment:

The first name seems to be Lazarus (the two last letters are "u",
because it has the sign above it, last letter is an "s", a so-called
"round s" at the end of words and syllables in Gothic script)

Bride: Bertha Marie Abraham (Female)
Birth Date: 22 Feb 1859 in Berlin, Age: 27
Daughter of Wolff Abraham and Anna Saylin(?) WALDECK
My comment:

The second name is "Sophie",

I hope that helps

On Ancestry.com the Detained Aliens List is image 81 of 528. (July 8,

Dear researchers,

I am working now on a KehilaLink website for town of Tarutino, Bessarabia,
now in Akkerman district, Odessa Oblast of Ukraine.

The town has an interesting history. It first was established as German
colony in 1814, and Jews were allowed there at the last part of 19c, and it
had almost 2000 Jews in 1897. I found some information already, including
an old map with Jewish Cemetery right in center of Town.

The other town's name was Antchikrok or Anchiocrac.

If you have any photos, old and new of the town, Family stories - I know
that there are a number of families related to that town, Family trees,
Travel stories, old maps, etc. please let me know.

I am looking forward to hear >from you.

Seeking information about Isidor(e) RUBINSTEIN #general

Barbara Musikar
 

Isidor RUBINSTEIN married my father's cousin, Mollie PADWA, in Minneapolis,
MN on June 22, 1913. She had probably met him in New York and joined him in
Minneapolis. I was told that Isidor worked for the railroad, but I have no
idea which railroad employed him. I also looked on the Railroad Retirement
Indexes, but did not locate his record.

Mollie and Isidor had a son named David. Supposedly Mollie died in 1918 of
influenza. I have tried to find Isidor and David on the census in
Minneapolis, but was unable to do so. I also looked in New York, but there
were too many people with his name. I was told that Isidor did not keep in
touch with Mollie's family after her death.
