Romanian Census Microfiche #general

janicemsj@...
 

Dear Jewishgenners,

I am in search of a copy of a Romanian census microfiche which was
originally published by Avotaynu around 1995 (and is no longer
available >from them). It includes census and cemetery data from
Bacau, Iasi, and Bucharest. The author was M. A. Halevy, according to
the Family History Library catalog. Their catalog number for the item
is 6312317, but the item does not circulate to Family History Centers.
If someone can perhaps lend me their fiche, or point me to a
repository in the San Francisco Bay area that has a copy, I would
greatly appreciate it. Thank you in advance for any assistance, and
please reply privately.

Danzigers in Amsterdam #danzig #gdansk #germany #poland

Micheline GUTMANN <m.gutmann@...>
 

Last February, I mentioned effectively the source in Netherlands because
several families had the name Danziger and some, as my husband's family
Chose the name van Dantzig in 1811. The first name was Heyman when arriving.

The web site done in Israel is very interesting and may be completed by
books and records of the Amsterdam archives.

I am still interested by the community of Dantzig beginning of 18th century.

New York Synagogue and Cemetery Lists from 1910-1915 #lodz #poland

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

Greetings all,

I have put online a listing of many of the synagogues that existed in New
York City (Manhattan, Brooklyn and the Bronx) and Long Island in the years
1910 and 1915. Included for each entry is the name and address of the
synagogue as well as the name and address of the "pastor" or president. Also
listed for each, when available, is the year the synagogue was established.
I know that many have raised questions in the past regarding many of the
older synagogues in New York City, so I thought I would create these lists
for you. The first list is for synagogues in the Bronx and Manhattan, the
other for those located in Brooklyn (Kings) and Long Island.

I have also created a list of Jewish cemeteries that existed in New York
City and Long Island in 1915. Listed are the names of each cemetery, their
addresses, the area (acreage) of each, along with the number of those
interred in 1913 and the total number of interments to that point. Did you
realize that Washington Cemetery in Brooklyn, established in 1861, already
had nearly 80,000 burials by 1913?

Dora Dorfman #yiddish

Saul Issroff <saul@...>
 

On 23 Aug. 1921, Mrs. Dora Dorfman (sometimes 'Dorfin' in the documents)
of 21 Paragon Mansions, Mile End, Old Town, died. She was the widow of
one Osiaf Dorfman, a man who had been a 'music hall artist'. The death
certificate was endorsed by their son - one L. Dorfman.

A historian I know is looking for Mr. L Dorfman or, more likely, any
of his descendants. He would like to speak to anybody in that family about
any stories or memories about they might have about Mrs. Dora Dorfman.

Please contact me privately.
A similar message was posted on JGSGB discussion group and has not
given any positive leads. It is possible that the descendants are
in the USA

I am pleased to announce the addition of an article about the CHEN/ASHKENAZI
rabbinical family to our SIG website. Thanks very much, Ralph Chayen, for
this interesting submission, which raises important questions for Danzig
rabbinical genealogy. Hopefully, SIG members will be able to help provide
answers, through their existing knowledge or future research.
(Note: Shklov, Belarus and the Chabad movement are also central
to this article.)
