zeev sela <zeevsela@...>
 

Dear friends,

Few weeks ago I wrote here and askrd for help about my aunt
who was born in Kostopol and grew up in Pietrolesie orphanage.
I did all on line search in many sites and nothing turn up.
Eventually wrote to the Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw
and to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
In less then a month I got the following mail >from warsaw:

Dear Mr. Sela,
In answer to your mail I inform you that I have not found your aunt
in any list of children. However, I have found her registration card
in the Register of Holocaust Survivors. It reads: Szylak Krysia-Kajla,
born 16 III 1940 in Kostopol, daughter of Dawid and Hela nee Zajt,
during the war lived in USSR, later in Kalisz, now (23 III 1947) in
the Jewish orphanage in Pietrolesie. I can send you the copy of
this card if you send me your postal address
Sincerely yours,
M.C., archivist, Jewish Historical Institute

Well I found what I need with lots of help >from you.
Mainly I wish ot thank Alex Sharon-JGFF editor, and Barbara
Rubinstein, whom without their help and support I would have give up.

Thanks for all advices

Researching GREENBERG from Iasi #romania

Marilyncondon@...
 

In September, 2007 my two daughters and I visited Iasi
in search of ancestral history for my grandmother
Rose Kron Fisher Silberman.

Her parents were Eva and Fischel GREENBERG of Iasi.
Eva had a sister Anna and a brother Leib.
There may have been other siblings.
Eva married Yohoshua KRON in 1888; they settled in Bacau
and had children Harry, Rose and Sarah. The family changed
their name to FISHER when emigrating to the United States.
Harry, Rose, Sarah and Eva emigrated individually to
the US between 1908-1916. Yohoshua died a natural death in Bacau about 1915.

Our guide in Iasi is willing to research state records for
marriage, birth and death records of these family members,
but he is being denied access to the public records by the
bureau chief. Has anyone had experience with getting access
to Romanian public records? Are there other avenues for
finding previous generations of family in Romania?

Replacing a tombstone --- thank you! #general

Fran Segall <FranSegall@...>
 

I'd like to thank everyone who shared their views on replacing a worn
tombstone for my father's baby sister. Most responses said that it
would be a mitzvah to replace the stone and that there was nothing wrong
with removing the old stone if it was unreadable.

I got too many replies to thank everyone individually as I usually do,
but please accept my heartfelt thanks for your help. This group is
wonderful!!

Re: ROSENTHAL in New York/(WYMAN/WEIMAN, Losice Poland) #general

Dear Genners,

I have replied to Michael privately, but I would like to point out that,
when posting indecipherable handwriting queries on viewmate, it is a good
idea to post more than just the entry in question. Please also post some of
the other writing around it, if it is in the same hand, as this helps in
deciphering the part in question. I came to the conclusion that the first
initial of Michael's mystery ROSENTHAL was an N by comparing it to the Ns in
New York elsewhere on the page. Without these additional samples of writing,
this would have been impossible.

Re: Washington Cemetery #general

Diane Jacobs <thegenie@...>
 

This same problem happened when I visited Beth David Cemetery, Elmont, LI,
NY several years ago. I found a tombstone and when I later called them,
they told me that there was no such person buried there >from their computer.
I told them that I had the information >from the tombstone and they went back
and checked their paper records. Sure enough, while they could not help me
with any additional information on this person, they did add him to their
computer list.

I was at Washington Cemetery last winter. Yes, they have computerized their
records, but please beware: not all of their records are correct.

Through the Google Book Search, I have discovered a mention of Samuel
Maltinsky in The Ohio Educational Monthly for 1910, volume number 59.
Unfortunately, there is no preview available for this particular edition.
If anyone has access to this material, and is able to send it over to me,
please contact me so that we can coordinate regarding reimbursement and any
other matters.

Thanks very much in advance,

Jewish cemeteries in Cuba #latinamerica

tina levine
 

I recently learned that my cousin's brother-in-law
left Poland for Cuba before WWII and died there in
1948, at the age of 41. He's buried in the Ashkenazi
cemetery at Guanabacoa. I found his name in the JOWBR
database. The database states that it has no image of
his grave.

Is there presently any project to photograph the
Jewish cemeteries in Cuba? I would like to have a
photograph of his grave.
