JewishGen's JOWBR Update - June 2016 #unitedkingdom

bounce-3163817-785714@...
 

JOWBR Grows to Over 2.8 Million Records!

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2016 pre-Conference update to
the JOWBR (JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial Registry) database. The
JOWBR database can be accessed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/
If you're a new JOWBR user, we recommend that you take a look at the
first two explanatory screencasts at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Screencasts/

This update adds approximately 103,000 new records and 28,000 new
photos. The database is adding and/or updating 540 cemeteries. JOWBR now
includes 2.8 million records >from 6,400 cemeteries / cemetery sections
representing 123 countries!

Once again, donors for this update include a mix of individuals,
Jewish genealogical societies, historical societies, synagogues, cemeteries
and museums. We appreciate all our donor's submissions and the
transliteration work done by a faithful group of JewishGen volunteers.

JewishGen wants to thank Eric Feinstein who has been instrumental
in sourcing and coordinating foreign records, especially >from France and
Germany. JewishGen would also like to thank Eric's team of data entry
volunteers; Sandra Bennett, Sharon Duckman, George Jiri Goldschmied, Henry
Graupner, Ann Meddin Hellman, Maurice Kessler, Harriet Mayer, Hans Nord,
Adina Schwartz, Marilyn Shalks, and Suzanne Tarica. In addition, JewishGen
thanks our volunteer transliterators, led by Gilberto Jugend, without whom
we would not be able to add the information >from some very difficult to
read photos.

Significant additions to the database include collections from
Brazil (Rio de Janeiro area), France, Germany, Italy (Milan and Torino),
Moldova, Romania (Timisoara), Slovakia (Neologicky Cintorin), Ukraine
(Chernivtsi) and the United States. Check
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm for a
complete listing of our inventory by location.

We appreciate all the work our donors have done and encourage you
to make additional submissions. Whether you work on a cemetery/cemetery
section individually or consider a group project for your local Society,
temple or other group, it's your submissions that help grow the JOWBR
database and make it possible for researchers and family members to find
answers they otherwise might not. Please also consider other organizations
you may be affiliated with that may already have done cemetery indexing
that would consider having their records included in the JOWBR database.

Mixed marriage 1820s #general

Sue Levy
 

Can anyone suggest where a Jew and a Christian might have married in England
in the mid-late 1820s?

Mark Levy was >from Plymouth (Devon, England) and Mary Lambert was from
Christchurch (Dorset - then Hampshire, England).
They made their home in the Channel Islands so it's possible they married
there.

Mark retained his Jewishness, so it's extremely unlikely they married in a
church, even supposing it were possible.

Help finding Rabbi? Jacob Breslow #general

Danny Breslow <dbreslow11@...>
 

Hello!

I'm in need of help finding more information on my
second-great-grandfather Jacob Breslow. He was born around 1855 in
Slutzk, Minsk, Russia and immigrated in late 1898. His first wife
Batya died around 1897 and he later married Dora Rudnizky in Manhattan
where he lived until his death.

The 1910 and 1920 Federal Censuses list his occupation as "Sexton" in
a "Synagogue"
The 1915 NYC Census lists his occupation as "Sexton"
The 1917 city directory lists his occupation as "Sexton"
The 1915 city directory lists his name as "Rev Jacob Breslow"

I can't find any more comprehensive information anywhere. What
synagogue did he work at? What was his actual occupation? I've read
that sexton can mean anything >from Rabbi to gravedigger.

Any assistance would be much appreciated.

Danny Breslow, New Jersey
Surnames: Breslow (Slutzk, Kletzk) Rappaport (Hlybokaye) Jablonski,
Blecher, Babekier (Bialystok) Chudnovsky (Tahancha) Lita, Barzov

help finding 1920 census ED #general

Wendy Griswold
 

Hi, cousins.
I once again admit defeat and throw myself on the mercy of the kind
folks who *get* this stuff.

Looking for 22 or 32 Ridge Street (the handwriting on the document I'm
working with is not so great, but they should be on the same block),
NYC. It's ED 142 for the 1930 census. It's AD 4, ED 6 for the 1915
State Census.

As I read the ED finder tool, it should be 1, 13, or 14 for 1920, but
these census rolls don't seem to contain the address I'm looking for.

Before anyone undertakes a wild goose chase on my behalf, truth in
advertising: I have the address confirmed for 1919 but not 1920, so
I'm operating on a wish and a prayer. My party is not at that address
on the 1915 census.

All help welcome.

New Brooklyn, Queens, Newark Naturalizations + Lithuania Vital Records available on FamilySearch #general

Michael Moritz
 

FamilySearch has been adding a significant number of digitized records
to its online collections. Although these sources are not evident from
the list of records that are available, the following sources have
been scanned and are freely searchable on FamilySearch.

Of note: these records are not indexed on FamilySearch, so you have to
manually search through the records yourself, but with the countless
resources we have, this can be made easier.

1. New York, Eastern District Naturalization Petitions

Available are all petitions until the year 1958, which far exceeds the
documents available on ancestry.com or any other site. To find the
requisite record, use ancestry to locate the petition number and then
the following link contains all the records. Click on the camera icon
next to the film to view the documents.
https://familysearch.org/search/catalog/988724?availability=Family%20History%20Library
[or http://tinyurl.com/j3qz3ff --Mod.]

This is a significant addition of about two decades of additional
records for Brooklyn and Queens.

2. New Jersey District Court at Newark Naturalization Petitions

Available are all petitions for the years 1914 to 1945. An index to
these records is available on italiangen.org.

I don't believe these records have ever been available online.

https://familysearch.org/search/catalog/1332882?availability=Family%20History%20Library
[or http://tinyurl.com/gtbz4ot --Mod.]

3. Jewish Records of Lithuania

As far as I can tell, all Jewish vital records filmed by the LDS Church
for the country of Lithuania have been digitized and are available
online. On FamilySearch, go to Catalog, type in the town name, then on
Jewish records, and there should be a link next to the record looking
like a camera. Many (or most) of these records have been indexed by
JewishGen, so using an index >from JewishGen might easily help you find
the original.

Happy searching!

Best,
