Thanks Re: Newark, NJ Old Cemetery Records - conclusion #general

Rusty Wilson
 

Thanks to all for the responses on records for formerly-active Newark,
NJ cemeteries. Several people expressed interest in the results, and
for anyone researching people in the Newark area or New Jersey
generally, I've summarized what I learned through various phone calls
and email responses. If anyone has further detail or different
information, please do not hesitate to provide corrections or
additions.

Cemeteries maintain a few types of records. They have a ledger that
typically contains the burial date, the burial location and perhaps a
few other bits of information, and they have a "transit certificate"
that contains perhaps the place of death, the date of death, the
doctor's name, the funeral home name. These are general guidelines -
different cemeteries and different time periods had different pieces
of information, and in early years, the transit certificate was often
discarded after burial without a copy being made first.

It appears unlikely that a cemetery would have any records that would
list family information such as the decedents' relatives, parents,
place of birth, obituary, carefully labeled photos of the extended
family in Ukraine together with birth dates and a short but insightful
paragraph of biographical information, etc.

Once the cemetery ceases operations, its records are transferred
somewhere. Because a cemetery is a private enterprise, records are
never transferred to the state archives. Instead, the state looks for
a private entity. In the case of the Grove Street Cemetery in Newark,
NJ (and for many others), the records were adopted by Raiken Epstein
Memorials, Inc. (908/245-7100). They promptly transferred my call to
a helpful woman who looked up the records (and in my case, found
virtually nothing).

I hope this is helpful. Again, any additional detail or corrections
would be welcome.

Does anyone know if records still exist for any of the old and
inactive Newark cemeteries? I'm interested primarily in the Grove
Street cemetery. Were the original cemetery records transferred to
the public library, or a government agency, or some other
organization? Or just destroyed or lost?


Destination information for new immigrant #general

James R. Platt <jamesrplatt@...>
 

Which document should show me where a relative who immigrated by ship
to the U.S. (1880-1890) will live upon arrival. I know the ship
passenger list should show the destination city, but is there some
document which states more than the city - perhaps the name of a
sponsor for that immigrant and perhaps an address. Thank you in
advance for any advice.

Viewmate #34995 tombstone translation request #general

Edward Rappaport
 

On-line information about this woman, Masha Rivel (Ryfka) Klugman
nee Rapoport, my GGGG-aunt, is incomplete.

I would be grateful to learn the names and dates/ages of the people
mentioned. I am also curious about how her father's name and title,
if any (rabbi?), are presented. Is there an indication that she
remarried after her first husband (Klugman) died when she was just
29 years old. BMD records on-line identify two children. Does the
inscription suggest there were more? Anything else of note?

Many thanks,
Ed Rappaport

Does anybody have any information? #ukraine

iminuk0407@...
 

Dear Friends,

For many years I've been trying to find any information on Anna Shapiro
(whose photo I posted on View Mate) - but no luck...

Anna, born in Fastov (sometime between 1909 & 1913), Ukraine, immigrated
to the US between 1925 & 1929 and lived in PA. Until 1930's she was in
contact with her family in Ukraine (but all the correspondence was lost
during the WII). My grandmother Sonya Shapiro was Anna's first cousin.
If you recognize her or have any information about her please let me
know. You are my last hope...

Please see her photo on viewmate.

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/full.asp?ID=34991&loc=A&name=34991AnnaShapiro%2Ejpg

On the photo Anna is with her father Berl Shapiro prior her departure
to the US.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Regards,

Inna
