Dear Cousins,

Isabel Cymerman asked where she could get her father's high school transcript
and maybe other records, and mentioned that he did his medical internship and
residency in Brooklyn, New York, at Beth-El Hospital in 1936 and at the
Jewish Sanitarium and Hospital for Chronic Diseases in 1939, but that neither
institution still exists.

Those two hospitals are still around. Beth-El is Brookdale University Hospital
and Medical Center, and the Jewish Sanitarium is Kingsbrook Jewish Medical
Center. (Almost every hospital has undergone several name changes as they've
merged, moved, and "rebranded" themselves over the years. Hardly any call
themselves hospitals anymore, they're all "medical centers," whatever those
are.) A nearly complete listing of name changes of hospitals in New York City,
including those that have closed, is at
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_hospitals_in_New_York_City

I have edited this page extensively over the past year or so, and it probably
can't be completed, but it's close.

However, I don't know what the requirements were decades ago for hospitals to
obtain and then keep information on their interns and residents - and there
was certainly no need for them to have high school records, probably not even
university or college records, just medical school and onward. On the other
hand, if he had a medical license in New York State, the State Department of
Education (not the Department of Health) is another place to try, although
they don't keep copies of the information submitted to them, and usually have
only a page or two synopsis of information to confirm that a doctor went to
medical school, passed exams, and did an internship and residency. Full
transcripts might still be available >from his college and medical school in
Europe.

Researching BRUDER from NagyKaroly #hungary

dwiener1940@...
 

Thank you so much for your response.

A few years ago, I did have contact with a researcher in Hungary, but
had no luck with information about Carei, Romania (NagyKaroly after
Trianon)

Fani Bruder, (Born 01 April 1862 in Nagy Karolyi). Parents: Samuel and
Sara Bruder

I don't know if Fani had any siblings.

In 1884, Fani married Samuel Fried (Born 25 December 1859, possibly in Tolscva).

Children:
Aladar: born July, 1885 (possibly in Nagy Karolyi)
Max/Morris: born May, 1885 (possibly in Debrecen. I found
circumcision record for Max)
Rudolf: born 12 July, 1893 in Budapest (My grandfather). I have
found this record.

Fani joined Samuel in America in 1893, and I have all documents for
the family in America.
I want to find her siblings, if any, and documents of her parents,
Samuel and Sara Bruder. Samuel was a butcher.

Thank you for your response.

Bessarabia SIG, Update for September 2016 #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Hi everybody,

Please see the What's New Section of the details.

We have completed indexing and sent to JOWBR information on TWO more Jewish cemeteries in
Bessarabia/Moldova:

- Jewish Cemetery of Leovo. It used to a very large cemetery. We have sent 353 burial records (we
could read surname, first name or father's name at least) with 289 photos. We also put a section of
Unknown graves for Leovo cemetery with 343 photos at Bessarabia SIG website (cemetery section).

I should tell you that it took two trips to Leovo to do the photographing, and were promised some
donations for Leovo, but did not get them! We need your donations for the Leovo Cemetery!
The work for Leovo cemetery is done yet. There is a section at the cemetery, with no access to the
graves. There is going to be a Reconstruction project at Leovo cemetery, hopefully started in spring
of 2017 to clean up the cemetery and fix the fence. See more details about it at the Leovo Cemetery
report.

- Jewish Cemetery of Dubossary, Old Section. 149 burial records with 149 photos submitted to
JewishGen/JOWBR, and also 46 photos sent to Unknown Section for Dubossary, Old.
That cemetery has graves dating to the end of 18 century - 200+ years old. Some of the monuments
have a terrific engravings and inscriptions. See more at the Dubossary Jewish Cemetery, old section
Report.
I was very much interested to see the result of this work - my great great grandfather Erukhim Kohen
most likely was buried at that cemetery in late 19 c, but no, I was not lucky at this time.

- You also can see the updated list of Jewish Cemeteries in Bessarabia/Moldova with latest information
on the work we are doing.

- The Bessarabia SIG Website was updated, especially Research Project section. The cemetery projects
were moved to Cemetery section, and I encourage you to browse the Research Project and other section.


Please let us know if you have any questions, ideas of how to make our Bessarabia SIG and the website
better.
