uncle buried in Plashett cemetary #unitedkingdom

Michael Goldsmith <michaelg32@...>
 

About ten years ago I visited London to research my family's genealogy. I
managed to obtain the birth certificates of my father and his two brothers
from Kew. I also obtained a death certificate of one of his brothers (Hyman
Yochvedovitch who died at age one year) >from Kew. Further searching led me
to find that he was buried in Plashett Cemetery (he died October 27, 1899)
but under the name Hyman Yochordovich. I was told that the archive of that
burial was kept by Mr. Charles Tucker. I tried to contact him by phone
during my visit but failed. After my return to the United States, I had to
put aside this research for many years. I would now like to renew my
attempt to find out what information might be available in that archive.
Does anyone know if Mr. Tucker is still handling the archive and where I
might send him an email (or other means of contact).
On another note, I have uploaded my father's 1901 birth certificate (Bermon
Yokvedvitz) to the JGSGB and would like to upload the documents relating to
his brothers. Where can I do this now?

Trestina (Trzcianne) cemetery restoration #general

David Brostoff
 

To all those interested in Trestina (Pol. Trzcianne),

The Jewish cemetery in Trzcianne (Trestina), northwest of Bialystok, is
in a state of deep decay, not having been maintained since the Nazis
destroyed most of the town in 1941.

Many of us with Trestina roots have ancestors and relatives who are
buried there.

A project to restore the cemetery has been started by Trestina
descendants, in partnership with the Foundation for the Preservation of
Jewish Heritage in Poland, the Polish government entity that owns the
cemetery and much of the communal Jewish property in Poland.

The project has also received the support of the chief rabbi of Poland,
Michael Schudrich.

One of project's goals is to document the inscriptions on the headstones,
which will give us valuable genealogical information.

To learn more, please contact me directly.

Thank you,

David Brostoff

looking for NY death record #general

Feige Stern
 

Hello my fellow researchers,

I've been searching for a death record for Rebecca (Rivka) Altein, born
around 1860 in Poland and died in the 1940s somewhere in NY, perhaps
Manhattan or Brooklyn.
I've tried ancestry and have looked through the online yearly indexes
online to no avail.
Does anyone have any ideas for where else I might look? Her sons are
buried at Mt. Judah Cem. in Queens and Mt. Zion in Queens.

Are there any more places to search?

Thanks for your thoughts,

Offering (Again) Lookups in NYC #general

A. E. Jordan
 

I am going to be doing another round of lookups later this week and
wanted to offer if anyone needs documents >from the New York Municipal
Archives or naturalizations or Manhattan probate. I might also be doing
the NY Public Library lookups.

I will be available to get copies of certificates at the NYC Municipal
Archives. Anyone who has availed my services in the past knows I have a
sort of set routine. On these trips I am basically working as your eyes
and legs for people who can not get to the Archives themselves.
Generally what I do is transcribe certificates (or buy copies) where
you have already found the numbers >from the online indexes or sometimes
check for missing records with the tools at the Archives.

Yes I can retrieve the City Clerk marriage licenses, the ones where the
indexes went on line recently, and up to 1950 is available at the
Archives. As a reminder I can only access births through 1909, marriages
through 1937, City Clerk licenses through 1950 (after that requires
going to the marriage bureau); and deaths through 1948.

Also I can do naturalizations at the NY Supreme Court which is in the
same building and probates for Manhattan.

I ask everyone to cover the costs including the printing of certificates
(if you want them) which is $11 each plus to help offset my costs.

What I do is take the details you have and in the case of the Archives I
actually look at each certificate on the microfilm before placing the
copy order to make sure it is what you said it was. Sometimes I have to
clean up errors in transcription of numbers, research >from your info to
find the correct certificate number. etc.

I pay for the certificates and then trust you to reimburse me. I can
either scan and email or mail certificates. I type notes and email.

Please understand that generic searches when you only have vague details
(like Hirsch married Sima but that's all I know) or are trying to
breakdown a brickwall that you have been working at for years requires
an investment of time beyond a quick retrieval and I can not include in
this offer.

I am always happy to discuss any and all research questions involving
NYC area look ups.

Re: (Ukraine) Access to Records of Repressive Regimes 1917-1991 #general

Vladimir
 

I opened and read the website.
To add to what Roman Ravve kindly advised.

This website "Rehabilitated by history" is a national data collection
of repressed people in the past. It has a search tool, using which you
can search inside the website. But you do not enter anything. You
simply can choose options of sorting out the information for you, for
example,

by alphabet
by place of birth
by place of residence
all text
total search

The website has information in Ukrainian language. Reading it would be
possibly difficult for some of you. I speak Ukrainian, Russian and
English and can help.

best regards, Vladimir Kreschyshyn

Re: "Kristallnacht" #germany

In connection with this discussion about "Kristallnacht" I would like to
draw your attention to the fact that the term "Kristallnacht" was a Nazi
term meant to expose the Jews to ridicule. Avoiding further use of Nazi
terms the alternatives are:
use of quotation marks "Kristallnacht", or Novemberprogrom or
Reichspogromnacht.
