Grave photograph request - Clifton, NJ #general

Russ Maurer
 

I am seeking a volunteer to photograph a single grave at King Solomon
Cemetery (now known as West Ridgelawn Cemetery at King Solomon
Memorial Park) in Clifton, NJ. Contact me privately for specific
details and to avoid duplication of effort. I understand this is not
the best time of year for such a request and would certainly
understand if it cannot be done until the weather warms up. I will be
happy to reimburse incidental expenses (tolls and the like). Thanks
in advance.

Canada Research: #general

Moishe Miller
 

Dear Group, Perhaps someone can offer me some guidance. I am a novice
when it comes to Canadian Research. I am looking for detail on Nissin
Yokel SCHWARTZ (aka Shwarz or Svartz), born in "Russia". He came to Canada
around 1948 as a widower. His late wife, Sarah Haimovici (c1880 - 1935),
was >from Botosani, Romania. Nissin passed away in 1962 and his final
resting place is Saint-Sophie, QC. I have a picture of his tombstone and
it does list his father as Yakov. How can I learn more about Nissin,
his ancestry and where he is >from in "Russia"?

Re: Given name Gimpel #general

Dear Genners

The given name Gimpel is not a nickname (Kinnui) to the Hebrew name
Gamliel.

Gimpel or Gumpel is a nickname to Efraim and also to Mordechai.

The source for this names is in Germany in the 15 or 16 century.

The family name Gompertz or Gumperts get out also >from this names.

This names where used in the region what is called 'Nieder Rhein=E2' in
the west part of Germany.

Progress on Bessarabia Cemetery projects #general

Yefim Kogan
 

Dear Researchers,

You may see the list of Jewish cemeteries in Bessarabia/Moldova at the
Bessarabia SIG Website, Cemetery section:
http://www.jewishgen.org/Bessarabia/Cemetery.html

The JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry (JOWBR) has now index or/and
photos for 28 cemeteries in our region with total of 38,055 burials.

Here is our progress for two month, since my last cemetery progress report:

We have completed in November and December indexing/photographing of four
cemeteries:
*Rezina New Jewish Cemetery, Moldova;
*Ungheni Jewish Cemetery, Moldova;
*Grigoriopol Jewish Cemetery (Moldova, Transnistria, used to be part of
Kherson Gubernia);
*Capresti Jewish Cemetery, Moldova.
You can already find Cemetery reports >from these cemeteries and also list of
Unknown graves. Records >from first two cemeteries are now already uploaded
to JOWBR, and other two will become available in 2016.

Here is where we are with many other cemeteries:

-Ataki - photographed what was possible. There are some parts of the
cemetery in the woods. Before making photos, the sections should be cleaned
up. Maybe someone can organize such effort. Of course some additional
money will have to be collected. That work is outside of scope of
JewishGen. Please email me if you would like to participate.
The translation is in progress.

-Beltsy - did not receive yet promised photos.
-Bessarabka - translation is in progress.

-Brichani - hope be completed in February of 2016.

-Camenca - in progress, plan to finish this month.
-Dubossary Old - in progress.
-Ganshehti - was photographed, but part of the cemetery is not accessible.

-Kishinev Jewish - received almost 800 photos, we have now total of 1,400
images.
-Leovo - translation started.
-Lipkani - be completed in Spring of 2016

-Markuleshti - in progress.
-Rashkov - part was photographed, need donations to photograph the whole
cemetery.
-Rezina Old - in progress.
-Rybnitsa Old - the translation is in progress.
-Strasheni - not yet photographed, but it is our plan.

-Belgorod-Dnestrovskiy (Akkerman), received donation of 115 photos, and more
will come soon.
-Lyublin, (Nemorivka), received several photos of all of remains at the
cemetery - IF ANYONE has photos, or names of people who were buried at
that cemetery, please share with the group
-Dumbroveni, also have a few photos >from all what remains at the cemetery
now - if YOU HAVE any photos >from that cemetery and know people who were
buried there, please let me know

As I pointed many times, the cemetery projects are very important and
urgent. The monuments disappear, the inscriptions became less readable as
we speak, most of the cemeteries do not have any caretakers. If we will not
at least preserve the tombstones in the photographs, in 20 years, there will
not much to see, visit and put stones on.

We need your donations to pay for photos.
We need your help in translation >from Russian and Hebrew.
We need your help in organizing a new cemetery project.
If you know about a cemetery, which is NOT on our list (see above the link),
please let us know about it.

If the cemetery you are interested was not yet photographed or/and indexed,
you can initiate a new project by collecting about 30% of the cost. Email me
if you are interested. If you would like to get a whole list of people
buried in a cemetery - for donation of $100 to Bessarabia-Moldova Cemetery
Project, we will send you the whole list when it is done , before the list
is available at JOWBR.

Let me know if you have any questions.

German Translation Help needed #general

Is there someone in the group who can read German script? I have a couple
of handwritten sentences in script on the back of what looks like a family
crest and I am curious as to what it says. Also, I have some sort of a
certificate >from the late 1800's, >from the USA but written in German, and I was
wondering if someone could please take a look and tell me what it is.
Please respond privately to REDBALL62@aol.com
