Dear Genners,

I believe that this Benjamin Kessler is a relative of my grandfather. He is
buried near my grandparents in Mt. Hebron. Would someone be so kind as to
translate this tombstone for me.

Here is the link.

Cemetery in Vienna #general

Thank you Eva Bourne of Austria for responding so quickly to my seach for the
Goliger resting place. Eva told me how to reach Central cemetery in Vienna and
all the tecniques to get to the right rows groups and areas , she had found out
where Leah Goliger was laid to rest in 1917 and will go to the cemetery to take
pictures. I would never have believed a woman >from Petlikowce,. Galicia
would be buried in Vienna. It really puzzles me.Thank you Eva and thank you

Re: Rabbi Jerome Rosen of Marshall, Michigan #general

Mimi Katz <GeveretKatz@...>
 

Does anyone recall the name of the above-named Rabbi, Jerome Rosen, and
when he actually worked in Marshall?
Marshall, Michigan is a small town. I'm not even sure if a synagogue exists
there anymore.

If, perhaps, he was a Reform rabbi, you might try contacting the Union of
Reform Judaism, formerly the Union of American Hebrew Congregations, at
http://www.uahc.org/. If he was >from a Conservative or Orthodox
congregation, you might contact the respective umbrella organization. Other
JewishGenners will certainly know the web addresses.

Joan, Lois,

There is a better way than using irfanview. All irfanview can do is
make things bigger, but the resolution (dots per inch) will decrease
when you do so. What you want to do is magnify and keep the same
resolution so you can see more detail.

You can do that by using the magnify option on my missing manifest
page. The simplest way to do this is to start with my ship-lists page,
enter Grecian and 1893, then click on the July sailing. That will get
you to my missing manifest page starting at the first frame for that
ship arrival. Specifically it will be frame 258. The manifest that
contains Aron Greif is on frame 259 so you simply have to advance one
frame. Then set magnify to 1.0 and click display. You will now see an
enlarged version of the page with excellent resolution.

If you'd like to post this on the discussion group so that others can
benefit >from it, feel free to do so.

My thanks to all those who worked so hard to read the interview of the Mayor
of Lodz with regard to the commemoration of the Lodz Ghetto. It should be of
interest to everyone who had ancestors in the Ghetto.

House on Beethovenstraat in Amsterdam #general

Jonathan Barth <jpbarthjr@...>
 

Dear all,

My great-aunt Betsy Hupka-Barth lived in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and
recently passed away. She was married to Felix Hupka, who had since long
passed away. They lived in Amsterdam on Beethovenstraat XXX, 1077 JS,
since shortly after WWII.

According to her, the house she lived in was occupied by a jewish family
before the war. Apparently, this familiy was taken away and did not return.
I do not know the name of the family. As it turns out, the possessions of
this family were taken, except for the bedroom furniture. Why the bedroom
furniture was left behind, nobody knows. Maybe it was too big to take away.

In short, there is still a complete bedroom set which used to belong to the
jewish family that lived on Beethovenstraat XXX before WWII. The set
contains a linnen closet, double bed, two side-tables and a boudoir. It is
in art-deco style and all pieces match. The set has no great commercial
value (it has been valued at EUR 250,--) but it may have emotional value to
the (grand)children of said family or other relatives.

The bedroom set will be available untill 1 October 2004, when the joint
successors must empty the house. However, I cannot find them and I would
hope that you may help in finding them or contact them directly.

Thank you and kind regards,

Jonathan Barth

"Rosen's" Restaurant in Brooklyn, NY #general

HeyJudy123@...
 

Shlomo Katz has asked for further information about "Rosen's" restaurant in
Brooklyn, c. 1930.

The famous restaurant Junior's is owned by the Rosen family. I believe that they
did own a restaurant in Brooklyn as early as 1930, and that it may have had a
different name.

While Junior's Restaurant is not kosher, it does cook in the style of the Jews
of Eastern Europe. They are most famous for their cheesecake, which they ship
around the world.

There actually is a fascinating book about this restaurant published in the last
decade, Welcome To Junior's. The authors are listed as the brothers Rosen.
The history of Junior's mirrors the Jewish history of Brooklyn during the entire
20th century.

I have no connection to the restaurant, or to the publishers of the book.

Re: Zaleshchiki records from the State Archive of Ternopol Oblast #galicia

Mark Halpern
 

Moshe:

There are currently no formal indexing projects being conducted
by JRI-Poland or any other organization in any Archives in
Ukraine that houses records for the former Austrian province of
Galicia. The only indexing project for this area (eastern
Galicia) is for the Jewish vital records housed at the AGAD
Archives in Warsaw.

To access records at the State Archive of Tarnopol Oblast, the
State Archive in Lviv, or other Archives in Ukraine, you can
contact the Archive directly, hire a professional researcher, or
visit yourself.

Indexing of valuable collections of Jewish vital records would
surely find a home. Each organization -- e.g. JRI-Poland,
JewishGen, Gesher Galicia -- has guidelines for
acceptance/inclusion of indexing projects. You should contact
these organizations privately to determine if such a project is
viable. Gesher Galicia has a Research Grant Program and recently
awarded a grant to the Stanislawow 1939 Census Database Project.

Hello All,

Today I looked at Miriam Weiner's website (
http://www.rtrfoundation.org/ )
and searchedfor records for the town of Zaleshchiki, (Galicia,
then Poland,
now Ukraine, 48°38´ 25°44).

The website describes the records as follows:

-1924-1937 Kehal/Jewish Com

-1927-1928 School Records

-1871-1879; 1882-1902; 1939 Notary Records
.
-1937 Local Government

and indicates that they are all located at the "State Archive
of Ternopol
Oblast".

Does anyone know how I might access these records?

Would indexing of these records qualify for inclusion in any
existing
projects, formal or informal?


All the best,

Anyone know this researcher? #ukraine

I have received a recommendation for research in Kharkov by a Alexandra
Loshak. Has anyone heard of her. She was recommended by a Pavel Bernshtam
through our forum.

Of course, it is difficult to know who to trust when you receive
recommendations. So any help would be appreciated.

BREST JEWISH COMMUNITY, RESEARCH PROJECT IN THE MINSK ARCHIVES FOR
OFFICIAL METRIC BOOK BIRTH, MARRIAGE AND DEATH RECORDS, 1895 - 1914 (but
not every year complete)".

Although these records are for the Shtetl of Brest-Litovsk, many Ukraine
citizens >from the neighboring Shtetl were married in Brest-Litovsk.

There are over 15 Ukraine Shtetl that were within 30 miles of
Brest-Litovsk. Some of them are:
LESHNITSA, LES'NITSA, VELIKORITA, VEL'KORYTA, VEL'KORYTO, WIELKORYTA
DOROPEYEVICHE, DOROPEYEVICHI, SENISHCHE, DOBRISOVO, DOBROSOVO
ZABLOTSE, ZABOLOT'YE, OSAVA, OSOVA

We have added a web page to the Brest, Belarus web site that shows a
sample of two (2) Russian language Metric Book pages that were photo
copied during the December 2003 research done by Green Castle. One page
is of my father's (Jankel BINENBAUM) birth record the other of my
uncle's (Gutman BINENBAUM) birth record. Both are very easy to read and
were easy to have translated.

To see these sample documents you can go to the web site at:
http://brestlitovsk.topcities.com/Home.html
then hyperlink to the NEW page "Minsk Archive, 2003 Dec."

At the bottom of this web page there is also a photograph (e-mailed by
Jenni Buch and posted at JewishGen) taken by an unnamed researcher. This
researcher describes the condition of the Metric Books in the Minsk
Archives. There is also a statement by another researcher that expresses
a different opinion of the quality of the documents. In my opinion, both
are right in some observations and both are wrong in other observations.
