Re: Era and Shantzie Becker 1910 St. Louis census #ukraine

The Missouri Secretary of State has death records online for people who died up to 50 years
ago.

http://www.sos.mo.gov/archives/resources/deathcertificates/

I found this very helpful when looking for my St. Louis relatives. Pay particular attention to
the parents, spouse, and the informant (who is often another relative).

I did a quick search for Becker. (There's a lot of them.) I was able to find both Dora and
Jennie.

Dear Genners, Marilyn asked about Era/ Vera and Shantzie Becker in the
1910 census. Using the St Louis city directories, I was able to find
Dora and Jennie BECKER at the same address in the 1920 census. I
could follow them back to 1900 and forward past 1920. I suspect that
Dora died in 1924 (there is a death notice). Jennie was still single
in the 1930 census.

Tiraspol Cemetery photographing #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Dear Bessaraber and Ukrainian Researchers,

Bessarabia SIG started recently a project to photograph all the graves at
Jewish Cemetery in Tiraspol, Moldova, formerly part of Kherson Gubernia.

Town of Tiraspol has dual "jurisdiction" at JewishGen. It belongs to
Ukraine SIG and also to Bessarabia SIG. You can find a lot of information
on that town at Bessarabia SIG website: photos, Tiraspol Zionists project.

There are at this time 2469 records at JOWBR for Tiraspol. Our goal now is
to get the photographs for all these records, and also add records, which
were not part of this first 2469. I expect to have about 1000 additional
records or more.

I am in touch with one of last Jews living in Tiraspol, and he has already
started to send us photos of the graves. Janet Furba, former resident of
Tiraspol and I are Project leaders for this important addition.

I would like to ask all our members to contribute to the project: Tiraspol
Cemetery project among other Donation project. You can find it at
Bessarabia or JOWBR part of Donation projects. We need money to pay for the
photographs we are going to put at JOWBR, JewishGen.

We may also need volunteers to check the records against the images. Please
send me any questions, suggestions.

Re: Are my husband and I related? #dna

Max Heffler
 

Bennett Greenspan, President/Founder of Family Tree DNA says there were no
more than 25000 Jews in the 14th century, and by marrying each other, we are
highly related. DNA has proven I am distantly related to each of my wife's
parents and most Jews that match one of the 11 profile I manage, match all
11 including both of my parents' and in-law's lines.

Searching Rabbinic court after WWI permitting Agunot #rabbinic

אברהם <avraham997@...>
 

Dear Genners

I wish to inquire which Rabbinic court and which Rabbi/s dealt with
permiting Agunot to remarry after the first World War in Slovakia.
(Which Rabbi or Rabbis under the authority of which Beis Din performed
Hataras Agunot in Bratislava Pressburg after the first worldwar?)
There were, as known, many soldiers >from the German and Austrian armies who
did not return after the War, and their wives were banned >from remarrying.
My grandmother who lived in Bratislava Slovakia (Pressburg) was one of these
women, and I therefore wish to ask whether anyone knows the answer and can
give me the names I seek.
For those who are not aware of the meaning of Agunot: It means married women
whos husbands left them or died and the women are stranded and can not
remarry without a Get (Devorse agreement) or prof of their husbands death)

With grateful thanks
from Abraham Lapa

Temple Lechem Mishneh, NYC and rabbi William Kronwirth #rabbinic

Jeff at SG
 

Has anybody heard of a Temple Lechem Mishneh that apparently existed at
8-10 Avenue D, Manhattan in 1907? The congregation rabbi was a William
Kronwirth (not sure of the spelling of the last name).

I cannot find that congregation listed anywhere.

Thank you.

Roots in Novarodok-19th Cent. #rabbinic

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

My ggreatgrandmother, gittle ABRAMOWITZ left Novarodok during the
latter part of the 19th cent and came to the states via Liverpool. We
presume that some how she was related to or her maiden name was
HUREWITZ (or variant spelling). Does anyone know of such a connection
or know how I can research such a connection.

The ABRAMOWITZ was related to the Rav (Rabbi) of Novarodok , David ben
(son of) Moshe of Kletzk, who served as Novarodok's Rabbi some 200 +
years ago.

TIA
