Joyce Field
 

In early August many tens of thousands of new records were added to
JOWBR, JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial Registry, a searchable
database, bringing the total number of records to almost 600,000.
Check the names and locations of all the cemeteries included in this
database at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm.

The additions included over 50,000 burial records >from Canada, over
16,000 records >from the United States, as well as new records >from
England, Hungary, Israel, Mauritius, Netherlands, Scotland, Serbia,
Slovakia, and Ukraine.

The cemetery visits by participants at the IAJGS conference in New
York will, it is hoped, bring many new submissions to JOWBR.

The database can be searched at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/cemetery/. Instructions are at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/JOWBRinstructions.htm and
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Submit.htm.

Please contact me or Nolan Altman, JOWBR Technical Coordinator,
<nta@pipeline.com> if you have any questions. We want to extend our
appreciation to Warren Blatt and Michael Tobias for their special
efforts to get these records online before the Conference.

No such spelling #general

Evelyn Filippi
 

Sorry, but you are mistaken.
In Hebrew, no one spells the name Aron, Aharon or Aaron, with the letter
"Ayin".
To my knowledge, there is no Hebrew word "aron" spelled with an "Ayin".

Hi all,
I just got the above email in response to how my father spelled his
name. He spelled it ayin rash vav noon. The problem with researching is that
people look up things according to what they know to be right. I dont know
if this is a yiddish way to spell it or just my fathers way. So even
if the whole world spells it different this is the way My father spelled
it. Everyone on the PACHMAN side of my family spelled it this way except
one grand uncle who 60years ago started spelling it PACKMAN. On my HASS
side half of them started spelling it HAAS. Etc ,etc,etc.
Thank you again for all the help and responses.

1920 Census for Richmond Virginia: NEAMAN & WOLINSKI #general

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Cousins,

In the 1910 census for Lynchburg Virginia, I find Mannie/Maurice
WOLINSKI with wife Kathryn, both born in Russia circa 1870 & daughter
Pauline born in New York (no city mentioned) circa 1894. They're
living on Court Street. In the 1920 census for Richmond Virginia, I
find the daughter as Pauline C NEAMAN, married (no husband listed),
owner of a grocery store, age 26. She's living with her mother
Kathryn L Wolinski, a widow, age 52. I don't find either of them
anywhere in the 1930 Census, or on any other public records at any
time. I think I know what became of the husband, but not of Pauline & Kathryn.

Does anyone have any practical ideas on how I might trace this mother
and daughter, both cousins of mine?

Best, Steve Orlen

I just discovered a very good site at

It may interest those who are interested in those towns.

Re: Emanuel ABRAMOVITZ - Artist #general

Lisa Lepore <llepore@...>
 

Don't know if this will help, but I found these
mentioned at an art auction site -

Abramovitz, Albert (USA) (1879-1963)
Abramovitz, Pinchas (Israel) (1909-1986)
and
Abramowicz, Leon (Czechoslovakia) (1889-1978)

Maybe the Emanuel >from the census became an
artist later in life. Or, maybe he was a hobbyist with
a local following.

Contact an auction house, gallery, library or museum
in London and see if anyone has heard of him.

Emanuel Abramovitz - Artist #general

Nick Rich <nick@...>
 

All,

Many thanks for all of the replies, but I must apologise for misleading
everyone. Having done endless searches for Mr Abramovitz, My Father now
tells me he has made a mistake, and he has got the wrong man. It turns out
that he got confused with another Emanuel, who married Minnies Sister. As my
Father is an old man, and it is not too often you get two Emanuels marrying
two sisters, I will excuse his memory lapse and try again.

So here goes for a second try -
Lazarus and Rachel Blumberg had a daughter called Rebecca, who married a
gentleman called Matthew Gablenopski. It appears that Matthew later changed
his name to Emanuel Matthews, and can be found in the 1901 census, living
with his Mother and Father-in-Law, and his profession is listed as a
Painter. This is the gentleman my father claims was a famous artist. I will
do some searches on google, but if anyone has heard of this fellow, please
let me know. As this man is listed as an artist in the census, I am now a
little more inclined to believe he could be right, and I am sure he would
enjoy the opportunity to tell me "I told you so".

Again, my apologies to those who tried to search on my behalf, and thanks
for all your efforts.

Nick Rich

IAJGS Conference Impressions for "The Galitzianer" #galicia

pweisberger@...
 

Did you attend the IAJGS conference in New York City?

If so....and you'd be interested in writing a few paragraphs on your
"conference impressions" as they relate to Galician research to be part
of a compilation article published in the next issue of "The
Galitzianer," please send them to me.

These impressions can range >from lectures, SIG/BOF gatherings, or films
you attended that had special meaning to you....or >from which you
emerged a bit more knowledgeable....or hungry for more information....or
new connections made, people met....chance encounters that lead to
breakthroughs.....books purchased.....anything that you would want to
recommend or pass on to others who couldn't be there in person, or who
were there, but didn't get to attend every single offering!

These short articles must be in Word and sent as attachments to your
email. You can title them if you wish. I would need them by this
Tuesday, September 5th. Don't worry about the length. If there is
repetition in submissions we can cut or edit. The only caveat is that
they *must* be related strictly to Galician research.

Remember: do not submit these to the list, but to me directly at:
pweisberger@hotmail.com

Looking forward to hearing >from you soon.....and if you know people who
attended, but do not subscribe to this online discussion group, please
alert them on our behalf.

Many thanks.....

The cemetery visits by participants at the IAJGS conference in New
York will, it is hoped, bring many new submissions to JOWBR.

The database can be searched at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/cemetery/. Instructions are at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/JOWBRinstructions.htm and
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Submit.htm.

Please contact me or Nolan Altman, JOWBR Technical Coordinator,
<nta@pipeline.com> if you have any questions. We want to extend our
appreciation to Warren Blatt and Michael Tobias for their special
efforts to get these records online before the Conference.
