Dubravka Juraga: Introduction #ukraine

Dubravka Juraga <dubravkajuraga@...>
 

Hello all.

My name is Dubravka Juraga, and I live in the United States. I am from
Novi Sad, Yugoslavia (Ujvidek/Neusatz in Austro-Hungarian times).

I have been searching for the identity of my grandfather, Andrei
Sirozenko (b. 1885), and of my grandmother, Mathilde Berger (b. 1895),
for many years now, rather unsuccessfully until this past year, when
my mother passed away, and I found a few documents that have been
hidden and unknown to me till now.

Last year, I succeeded in finding census records of Mathilde's family
in Wildschutz, today Vlcice in the Czech republic. However, I have not
not been yet able to determine whether they were Jewish or German,
yet.

For my grandfather, I had always been told that he was Russian, from
Kiev, a tzarist soldier captured by the AustroHungarian army who
decided to remain in Novi Sad, after the Soviet revolution. While
Andrei decided to stay in Yugoslavia, his brother, William, came to
the United States.

Last week, following the trail of his brother, William Sinko, I have
discovered that they were Jewish, >from Kiev. I also found out that
William Sinko came to the United States in 1911, probably with the
family of Max Kanarsh. Max and his family came to the US the same
year, and William was a boarder with them for years. I now assume that
they came to the States together >from Kiev. I also know that the
Kanarshs spent some time in Switzerland as their two children were
born there (all information I gathered >from census records).

The family lore has is that William got his name shortened to Sinko by
the immigration officers (>from Sirozenko).

I am very excited about this finding, as it is finally giving me
something about my grandfather who disappeared and died in the World
War Two, and about whom my mother and grandmother refused to talk at
all.

I would like to start searching for the family in Kiev, but am unsure
how to go about, and I would greatly appreciate any and all help.

I am also a member of the AustriaCzech JewishGen group, and will be
asking their help for determining my grandmother's identity, so if you
have any recommendations about that, it will be much appreciated.

Best regards,

Dubravka Juraga

Searching CHAIMSON and FEINSTOCK from the towns of Radivtsi, Derazhnya, Vovkovyntsi #ukraine

Claudia
 

In reviewing ship manifests and applications for naturalization, I have a hard time determining who was >from which town mentioned in the subject. The towns are very close together, about 330 km SW of Kiev. Here are the facts I know.

My grandmother, Sarah (Sure) CHAIMSON. Born 11/18/1896. Arrived in NY May1914
My great uncle, her brother, Benny (Baruch) CHAIMSON. Born 12/1/1892. Arrived in NY April 1913. The parents were Asher or Osher and Bella nee Shechtman. There were other children in the family who presumably stayed behind.
My grandfather, Joseph FEINSTOCK. Born 3/20/1891. Arrived in NY June 1914. Married Sarah 7/4/1916 in NYC. Father Harry and Musha (?)

They all moved to Pittsfield, MA in the 1930's.

Sarah GOLDSTEIN in USA? #general

Bryan Diamond <bryan@...>
 

My grandmother Jane GOLDSTEIN had a sister Sarah, born in Ellen Street.
east London (parents Suchar Goldstein and Leah KROHN) in 1865-6
according to the 1871 Census of England, in 1881 she was a dressmaker
aged 15, she was not then found in the English records.

I recently received a MyHeritage Match with another family site
containing a Sarah Goldstein in USA who married in USA a Louis GOLDSTEIN
(born ca 1860 in Russia and died in Worcester Mass. in 1954),
Sara had a daughter Jennie SMITH. Sarah died in Sept 1909 in Worcester
and was buried there.

That information came >from MyHeritage, the manager of the other site had
no more details. I seek the particulars of that Sarah's parents to
confirm her identity, which will be in her marriage record; and her
burial memorial. I have searched for the latter in Worcester cemeteries
but without accessing in Ancestry.

Re: Mount Sinai Cemetery - Is that Machpelah and, if so, how do you find a grave? #general

Nancy Reicher
 

Machpelah has no one on site but there is an office in Manhattan that handles
the business of several orphan cemeteries in the New York area. They have the
burial records of Machpelah. Its phone number is 718-366-5959.

This is the cemetery where Houdini and many of his family are buried. It is
quite a site to see. The gal in the office was very helpful to me when I spoke
to her and asked for information about greatgrandfather and greatgrandmother's
burials. The best time to visit is around Memorial Day as they spruce up and
mow the cemetery for that Holiday.

Searching COHNs of Albany, NY #general

Larry Freund <larryfreund40@...>
 

I've been researching a COHN family that originated in Bavaria and
emigrated to the U.S. (Albany, New York) in the 19th Century. The
father was Isaac Cohn. Among his children: Levi COHN (1841-1884) (the
main focus of my research) and Helen COHN. Helen married Simon W.
ROSENDALE (1842-1937), an Albany lawyer elected New York State's
attorney general (1892-1893). I'd appreciate any guidance on sources
of information about this COHN family (especially Levi) ... and
whether Simon ROSENDALE left any diaries, etc. (he was a founder of
the American Jewish Historical Society).

Thanks for your help!

Polish grammar question #general

Marty Meyers <martymeyers@...>
 

I'm looking at pre-1826 Polish marriage records and have a question that most
likely lies in the grammar.

If a witness is listed at the stryj, I know he is the paternal uncle. Brata is
similarly the brother.

How do I tell if he is the paternal uncle (or brother) of the bride or groom? Is
it the way stryj is conjugated (M or F) or is there an adjacent word that
specifies who the relationship is with? My browsing the internet and Shea and
Hoffman have come up empty.

Thanks in advance.

Resuming Lookups in NYC #general

A. E. Jordan
 

I am going to be resuming lookups in the New York area.

Generally I offer if anyone needs documents >from the New York Municipal
Archives or naturalizations or Manhattan probate. I will also be doing the
NY Public Library lookups.

I have not done anything since December so I think I have some old ones ...
or free to resend .. and for everyone else here's the details of what I offer:

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.

I can also do the 1890 Police Census which is not online but that requires
very specific information >from you.

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. I am also willing to look and
see if things match up like parent's names or such before I buy it ... but
please don't ask me to looking at 20 or 30 certificates because they have a
similar name. 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. (Sorry the
Archives does not permit digital pictures to avoid the printing costs.)

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: Mount Sinai Cemetery - Is that Machpelah and, if so, how do you find a grave? #general

A. E. Jordan
 

First off thanks to everyone who sent me messages in my search for the missing
cemetery. It's an interesting saga.

A few people have had a closed mind and because the cemetery name does not show
on the modern databases have said no it does not exist ...that I am wrong. But
many are also looking at the records and confused like me. Complicating the
saga are other cemeteries with the same name outside the New York City area.

The mystery starts with a 1912 death certificate that shows the burial as Mount
Sinai Cemetery. The family lived in Brooklyn.

None of the modern databases show the cemetery so I ended up going to the
newspapers of the era and sure enough I find a number of burials and articles
mentioning Mount Sinai Cemetery. But it seems to vanish in the papers or get
lost with the others of the same name.

I found the local authorities authorizing the cemetery operations in the 1880s
and that even gives a street name and a name of farm they would be converting.
I find mentions of the cemetery when the Triangle Shirt Waist Factory burns
because the union buys plots there for the victims and later puts a monument up
there. (I know that sounds like Mount Zion which has the burials and a memorial
to the fire.)

The best clue is I found a prominent rabbi buried at Mount Sinai in 1887 as well
as the names of various other people buried there. But I also found a newspaper
article talking about a city development and it says it is just behind Mount
Sinai Cemetery but the event it is describing happened at Mount Zion Cemetery.

I called Mount Zion and confirmed the rabbi is not there and they do not know of
a section or such being called Mount Sinai. I tried a few of the other names I
have and they do not show up in the database at Mount Zion either.

An online search points to the rabbi at Machpelah Cemetery and I called the
office there this morning and they confirmed his grave is in Machpelah but they
can not find the family I am looking for in the cemetery listing. They admit
that the various cemeteries sort of run together in that area of Queens.

Odd story of a forgotten cemetery. I don't have a final answer but I am closing
in on it. I will also check maps >from the era to see if there are any
indications on them, but the missing link is what happened in the management of
the cemetery which the online newspapers seem to miss.
