Re: Plymouth Rock Cemetery, Brockton, MA #general

Dear Anne,
You might try mailing one of those one-use "disposable" cameras to the
cemetery office, and ask them to take the photos and return the camera
to you. Include a return address label and return postage, so their
task is made as simple as possible. Tell them what you want photos of,
including whether you need to read the inscriptions, see the scenery,
etc. Let them know what's important to you.

Besides not having to get someone to go to a whole lot of effort with
travel, photos, postage, etc., you'll end up with much better photos
using a one-use camera than using a Polaroid.

I've had good luck with this method, even to getting photos of graves in
London, England. (For this, I sent some English money I had, instead of
trying to include return postage.)

Riga, Latvia - or the other Riga? #general

robert.gleek <robert.gleek@...>
 

Dear All,
Thank you all for your responses to my query about the 'other' Riga.
from all the responses I received, I have deduced that there IS only one
Riga - in Latvia.
However the country Riga is in was previously classed as Russia.
The surnames my family used were: Schneider, Myers, Goldstein and Milner.
Thanks for the clarification!

Dear Fellow Researchers,

I've received reports >from a number of you that you have received messages
in Polish >from Marek Szukalak. Szukalak is an author writing a book on
Lodz Jews. In his message he is soliciting information about the surnames
and individuals you are researching and asking you to confirm the
information he already has. He apparently obtained your email addresses
from the JewishGen Family Finder. Please respond to him at your own risk.

Hi everyone! I've just received two emails with the subject lines of FUKS
and FUCHS, both surnames that I am researching. They appear to be
identical.
However, they are written in Polish. Is there anyone out there who can
translate them for me? I've included the text below.

Thanks so much,

Search Engines #general

Heilbrunn <rabbfour@...>
 

For years I have been searching for information regarding ELCHANAN HEHNLE
KIRCHAN author of Simchat Hanefesh >from all sources including several
postings to Jewishgen. At best I could glean only very sparse information.
About two months ago I decided to do a Google search.
Immediately Google responded with the spelling KIRCHAN (instead of KirchaHn
which I had thought to eb the most correct spelling).

The amended spelling brought up several hits, including one for Hollanders
Book store which had a reprint of Simchat Hanefesh in good condition of
which I am now the proud owner. Apart >from the book itself, there is a
section on his life and family background.

Flushed with my success, I then typed in the name WASSERTRILLING (Kirchan's
son in law) for which I also had very little information into Google. Again
I got several hits including a large family tree and the information that
later on WASSERTRILLING was amended to WASSING.

It turns out these WASSERTRILLINGs are >from Boskowitz, and now I am trying
to link them up to WASSERTRILLING >from Hessen.

I therefore highly recommend Google searches of names and obscure
information if it's on the 'net, Google will tease it out!

Of course, if anyone out there can fill me in with more information, I'd be
delighted.

Re: Birthdates #general

sallybru <sallybru@...>
 

One of the things the discussion about birthdates points out: it really
depends where your family lived. Russia and 'the East', generally had
little knowledge of birthdates (of course, there is a lot of variation-some
knew the year and the Jewish date, some knew the Jewish date, etc.). In
Germany, where M. Bernet's ancestors came from, civil registration started
very early-some places in the 1700's. Where the Bruckheimer family came
from (now in Baden, but then the property the Electorate of the Main), civil
registration started in 1871 with the formation of the country 'Germany'.
If they were in Baden before that, they would have civil registration in
1807.

So, like so many things, you have to consider exactly where your family
lived in the year of the event.

Rabbi FRYDHEIM of Lublin #rabbinic

Ann Wine <annw@...>
 

Hi everyone

Does anyone know of a Rabbi in Lublin, Rabbi Izrael Icek FRYDGAJM
or FRYDHEIM?

He was probably born around 1850 and was apparently at some time on
the Beth Din - maybe in 1910 there abouts.

Does anyone have any idea where I could look to find this out? I am
in Sydney, Australia.

Thanks

Re: NYC Obituaries #general

For the NY Times, check the Index to the New York Times Index (yes, the
index to the index). That is the best place to find obituaries and other
information by name. For the Index to the New York Times, you need to
search by year.

GLUCKSBERG=GLICKSBERG family. #general

Epstein moshe ruth <epmoru@...>
 

Hi Genners.

For several years I'm trying to collect information on GLICKSBERG
families.There are many spellings of the name:the original spelling is
GLUCKSBERG (u umlaut) apparently after a German town by this name.
Before the end of the 18th century G. families lived already in Warsaw and
Biala Podlaska.
According the information that I have ,most of the G. families lived,untill
the Holocaust,only in Warsaw and towns around it and group of towns east to
Warsaw like Biala,Mezerich, Wegrow,Sokolow, and more.
My sources: pages of testimony and ITS cards >from Yad Vashem-Jerusalem,lists of
JRI-PL,telephone directories SSDI etc. I have many names but I don't know how to
*tie* them because the Glicksbergs at present do not know much about the history of
their families before WW2.
I'm trying to find out the relations among all the Glicksbergs and if they
are >from one origin.

Now a days there are not more than few tens of G.families,mainly in the
U.S.A. , Israel and some South American countries.Many of them believe
that there is no other family by this name. I found several families through FTJP that their mothers or grandmothers were Glicksberg,(Klicksberg Gligsberg Glisberg Glucksberg etc.) but I can not trace them.

I will be very grateful for any information!
