Records of the Jewish Residence of Kletsk #belarus

Richard Gilbert
 

I am the great grandson of Milicent LAMBERT (Malka LAMBERT). As far as I
know she was born in Kletsk where her parents Israel Jacob and Tema were
timber merchants and also owned a dairy in Zefras Street. Milicent married
my great grandfather Eliezer GINSBERG there circa 1900 and my great uncle
was born there circa 1903. By 1905/06 the family were living in London,
England. I would like to trace our family history further back. Does
anyone know of any records that specifically relate to Kletsk? I'm finding
such records very hard to come by. Does anyone have any experince of
researching in Kletsk? If so, I would appreciate hearing >from you.

Re: HORODENKA #galicia

Christine:

The surname is probably HORODENKER, which means ">from Horodenka."
Horodenka is a Galician town only 23 miles >from Kolomea. The
German --er suffix means "from."

JRI-Poland has indexed the Kolomea records that are housed at the
AGAD Archives in Warsaw. You can search the database by going to
our homepage at www.jri-poland.org and click on "Search
Database." You will find over 60 index entries for HORODENKERs
from Kolomea.
The AGAD Kolomea project is not yet fully funded. Only $407 is
needed to complete the funding. You can help ensure the indexing
of future Kolomea records. Please consider a contribution to the

Re: No surname on headstone - Russian Jewish Immigrants in late 19th C. #unitedkingdom

chaikin <chaikin@...>
 

I think the reason that the surname was not on the headstone was simply
because there had been a technical problem in connection with the stone
mason. For instance in my family one of my great grandmother's name on a
headstone at Edmonton Cemetery appears incorrectly as FREEDA LEVIN and in
another cemetery a great grandfather has his surname in English with an
important vowel missing making the name almost unrecognisable.
I think that not too much should be read into this. I would guess that the
stone masons were not necessarily Jews so there might have been
communication problems as the generation who were burying their dead were
not yet fluent with English and could not write the name.

Re: Finnish Death Certificate #general

Robert -

I would start with the funeral home. The obituary
or cemetery should provide that information.
There must be some kind of document available
here as well.

If not, contact the US state department - this
page has the information
http://travel.state.gov/consular_records.html

"Report of the Death of an American Citizen
A document issued by an American embassy
or consulate reflecting the facts of a death abroad
of an American citizen. The document is based
upon the local death certificate.

I found one piece of information which said
death certificates are not public information
in Finland - only available to the next of kin.

The Genealogical Society of Finland -

maybe they can explain the process.
