obtaining a photo of a headstone in Kozma Street Jewish Cemetery #hungary

Hi Everyone,
I wondered if anyone knew of a way to obtain a photo of potentially my great
grandfather's headstone in the Kozma Street Jewish Cemetery? According to Find a
Grave website, Berko Roth (b. 1849) died in 1906 and was buried in this cemetery.
Thanks for any help.

1849 Cadastral Map of Zolynia in the Gesher Galicia Map Room #poland

Jay Osborn <jay.osborn@...>
 

New on the Gesher Galicia Map Room: A complete full-color lithographed
1849 cadastral map of Zolynia, today in southeastern Poland:
http://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/zolynia-1849/

At the time of the 1849 survey, Zolynia was a small town with a
growing Jewish presence; the map shows a small market square plus
several village-like branches spreading along roads and waterways.
This copy of the map is heavily redlined with updates >from a later
survey intended for a new edition of the map; the revisions show the
addition of a new and larger church, and an expansion of the large
synagogue. Large Jewish and Catholic cemeteries are also shown,
suggesting Zolynia was a religious and administrative center for many
of the smaller villages in the area.

Acquisition of the map sheet images and copies of the property owner
records for historical Zolynia, as well as the assembly of this map
and the indexing of the text records, is a project of the Zolynia
Memorial group:
http://www.zolynia.org/

The property owner record indexing is in progress now and will appear
on the All Galicia Database when complete. Gesher Galicia thanks the
Zolynia Memorial for making this map and data freely available to all.

Images for this map were provided to Gesher Galicia by the Archiwum

St. Louis Cemetery Look-up #general

Jeff Marx
 

Is there a Jewish Genner in St. Louis who might be willing to go the the United
Hebrew Cemetery on Canton Ave. and take down the English transcription on a
gravestone, there, in section 1 for Anna Lazarovic who died in 1897? The photo on
Find A Grave is unfortunately too blurred to make out the name of her father. Please
contact me privately if you can help.

Re: 1959 Brooklyn death records #general

Many thanks to all the Genners who offered suggestions and help which have led me
to both death certificate and probate file numbers. I believe the decedent died
having no family in the US, but I would like to verify that and also find her
place burial if I can (I've already searched the likely general, Jewish, and
Catholic databases).

~ Has anyone been successful in getting a non-certified copy, or even a look at, a
post 1949 NYC death certificate since the 2015 NYC Health Dept rule change?

~ Is anyone going to the Kings County Surrogate Court (2 Johnson St, Brooklyn) who
would be willing to have the probate file pulled, copies made, and mail them to me?

Anyone with successful payment to Kiev oblast archives? #ukraine

Michael Moritz
 

I have received an invoice >from the Kiev Oblast archives, which
signifies payment to the State Treasury of Ukraine. Upon some
research this does not appear to be a "bank" with a SWIFT number that
I can send a wire to. If anyone has successfully paid the Kiev Oblast
Archives with a wire transfer, or might suggest another alternative, I
would love if you could contact me.

Thank you.

Joel Alpert <jalp@...>
 

Yizkor-Books-In-Print Project, part of Yizkor Books Project of JewishGen has
obtained a typed manuscript of significant memoir of a Shoah Survivor that needs to
be retyped for publication. We are looking for volunteers who can retype 10 pages
(or more). The pages are double space with about 24 lines per page and is very
easy to read. We received the document as a scanned pdf of an old fashioned typed
manuscript (not computerized) If you can help out on this project, please contact
ybip@jewishgen.org. We will supply volunteers with a pdf of that manuscript.

By the way, for those interested, we have tried to use OCR (Optical Character
Recognition) on the scanned pages but were very unsuccessfu.

Czech place names and Czechoslovak Refugees in UK #general

Marsha
 

I have posted an extract >from a "British Committee for Refugees >from
Czechoslovakia" interview form completed in May 1939 in the UK. I am trying to
decipher and understand the three place names.
The extract is here: http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM54131

The person to whom the document relates was a Roman Catholic and Communist member
of my extended Jewish family.He was born in March 1900, son of a coal miner, and
came to the UK as a political refugee in May 1939. His occupation is given on
various documents as chef and journalist. On arrival in the UK, he could speak
Polish, German and Czech.

a) Place of birth: Appears to be Hamborn. Does the writing below Hamborn indicate
whether this is Hamborn in Duisburg, in North Rhine-Westphalia (Germany)?

b) Right of Domicile: Appears to be Ulbersdorf. I have found three places called
Ulbersdorf. The first is in Poland which I discount. The second is in Saxony in
Germany. It is close to the Czech border but, as far as I can tell, has never been
inside Czechoslovakia. The third is called Albrechtice (Most) in Czech, was near
the German border but no longer exists having been absorbed by a coal mine. Does
the writing under Ulbersdorf indicate which Ulbersdorf it is? Did Right of Domicile
only apply in Czechoslovakia at this time or did it apply in Germany too?

c) Address in Czechoslovakia: I would be grateful for any help in transcribing and
identifying the full address.

Please respond by email. I also welcome any suggestions for continuing my research
using these addresses.

For anyone researching WW2 refugees >from Czechoslovakia who came to the UK, the
document extract came >from the records of the British Committee for Refugees >from
Czechoslovakia and Czechoslovak Refugee Trust housed at the National Archives at
Kew e.g. http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C9158 . There is a lot
of information about these documents on this website
http://webspace.webring.com/people/fc/czechandslovakthings/WW2_aguide.htm including
lists of refugees (mostly Jewish). I am not an expert on these records. I am simply
sharing the links in case they help others.

Many thanks for your help,
