Massachusetts help needed #general

A. E. Jordan
 

Hoping someone in the Boston area might be able to trade some research help
with me in New York.

I am working on a family in the Brockton area and I can trade them via the
census 1910 - 1940 but get stuck there. I cannot find the parents' deaths
after 1940 census and nothing till the children's deaths around 1999 and
later.

The children are in the cemetery on Pearl Street and I spoke to the manager
who is looking to see if they can find the records.

I need to find the parents dates of death or graves and also figure out if
there are any living descendants.

Anyone local who might be able to help out?

Thank you

Allan Jordan

Belgium – Jewish - Orphanage records, maybe Antwerp - 1921-23 #france

Janice Brockman
 

Hello,

Does anyone have any suggestions of record repositories
for Jewish orphanages in Belgium in the 1920's , most
likely between 1921 and 1923 and how to access if they
do exist? Perhaps Antwerp. Family story has it that 4
siblings spent time in an orphanage. Family story also
says about 6 months but I suspect, based on passport
dates, that it may have been about 2 years.

Thank you for any suggestions!

Anne Lehmkuhl <zafamilyhistory@...>
 

Good day,

I did some research on a FELDMAN family that turned out to be the wrong
family.
Therefore I'm posting it her in case this information is useful to
someone else as it's a pity to let it go to waste.

Abraham (aka Abram) FELDMAN was born circa 1861 in Russia. He was the son of
Jankel and Sheine FELDMAN.
He became a naturalised British subject.
He married Bashe Liebe BURNSTEIN in Skopiskis, Russia.
He died on 29 January 1929 at the General Hospital in Johannesburg. His
estate file at
the National Archives of South Africa (Pretoria): file reference MHG
68255 dated 1929.
He was buried at the Brixton Cemetery in Johannesburg.
His last residence was 123 Van Beck Street, Doornfontein, Johannesburg.
Abraham was a General Dealer by occupation.

Abraham and Bashe had the following children:

1. Peretz FELDMAN was born circa 1890 in Skopzik, Lithuania.
He married Hindel LEVIN in Johannesburg.
He died on 17 November 1936 at 10 Lawrence Road, Westcliff,
Johannesburg. His
estate file at the National Archives of South Africa (Pretoria): file
reference MHG 95252
dated 1936.
Hindel died in 1938.
Peretz and Hindel had six children: Harry, Abe, Ethel (married Julius
ABRAHAMS), Julie
(married Leslie BERMAN), Izzy, Arnold.

2. Manya “Minnie” FELDMAN was born circa 1894 in Russia. She married Herman
MARKOWITZ in Johannesburg.
She died on 01 March 1942 at 123 Van Beck Street, Doornfontein,
Johannesburg. Her
estate file at the National Archives of South Africa (Pretoria): file
reference MHG 1290
dated 1942.
Herman died in 1964. He married Dora after Manya’s death
They had two children: Sarah Juliet “Julie” (married DEE) and Samuel Julius.

3. Solomon FELDMAN
Possibly born circa 1897 and died in Johannesburg on 25 March 1976,
buried at West
Park Cemetery in Johannesburg.
Possibly married to Tana who was born in 1903 and died in Johannesburg on 08
October 1990, buried at West Park cemetery in Johannesburg.

Bashe Liebe BURNSTEIN was born circa 1864 in Skopiskis, Russia.
She died on 22 October 1955 at Louisa Street, Johannesburg. Her estate
file at the
