Re: Sarah Klenoff at New Montifiore

Sarah,

Right next to Sarah is Jacob Klenoff. Does that help you in your research? 
When researching, I think it important to also compare the society name, to see if other family members match. Also, when asking for help, you might want to include a map. New Montefiore makes both these items available for free, on their website (note, the attached map is TWO pages):
Interment #:M27147
Last Name:KLENOFF
First Name:SARAH
Age:77
Date of Death:5/19/1964
Division:
Block:14 View Block Map
Row:10
Grave:16
Section:6
Plot:
Society Name:CEMETERY DEPT. OF WORKMEN'S CIRCLE 

Also, I checked Ancestry, and there is a tree of this family posted at
showing Sarah to be born 1886 in Starodub, Bryansk, Russia with a Marriage on 10 Dec 1904, Krolevets, Sumy, Ukraine, to Yankel-Jacob Zalman Klinov-Klenoff (1884–1969). Sarah passed away in Dade county, Florida. Sarah was the daughter of Pinchas Velvel TsymbarovThe tree owner is Lisa Liel of Jerusalem, Israel. I have no other detail.

The one near Paris (Bernard FLAM's reply) is Saint-Maur-des-Fosses. I think the relevant location is probably Saint-Maur-des-Bois, a small village in the La Manche region (The EnglishChannel). It is located some 20 miles from the Normandy beaches, the theater of D-Day invasion. Normandy beaches were heavily fortified under the management of "Operation Todt" using slave labor.

Baron Hirsch Cemetery -Staten Island - Felshtin Society Burial Plot

barbarafischkin@...
 

Greetings,
       This is from Author Barbara Fischkin. I am a trustee of the Felshtin Society felshtin.org. Felshtin was a shtetl in Western Ukraine (Podolia). My late mother (Ida Siegel Fischkin) was born there and came here, as a child, with her family after the 1919 pogrom. My grandparents are buried in the cemetery and we are looking for others with roots in Felshtin who might have relatives buried there - and I might also be interested in our efforts to restore the Felshtin Society Plot. My grandparents are among those buried there. (Gertrude and Isaac Siegel). If you think you have relatives buried in this section of the Baron Hirsch Cemetery and would like to help, please let me know. I have names of those who are on headstones but no contact information for many of their descendants. Thank you very much.

I thought perhaps it was the actor Roy Schneider who was in the movies 'Jaws' and 'All That Jazz', but I don't recognise him from the photograph.

I believe the town is Dolní Jamné, Bezvěrov, okres Plzeň-sever, Plzeňský kraj, known as Unter Jamny in German.  There is one existing vital register, HBMa 315, at http://www.badatelna.eu/fond/1073/zaznam/412/reprodukce/

Hello, 
I'm trying to find a modern day town for a shtetl written on several family documents.  Town search hasn't been helpful.   I've seen different spellings  "Untergamnie,"  
"Unter Jamney," "Unterjanij,"   "Unter-Tomnie." The family name is Bymel and they immigrated to Chicago.
 
Any ideas? 

Thanks in advance.

The place appears to be what's now Dolní Jamné (4958 1303) in the Czech Republic.

I found it by searching the JewishGen Gazetteer (https://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/LocTown.aspfor a town name that contains the text JAM, near Prague.

I'm trying to determine the identity of a cousin of my mother (maiden name SCHNEIDER) for genealogical purposes. He was an actor on television (in the 1970s) and was possibly in a few films. I don't believe he was a SCHNEIDER. I came across his photo that I put up on ViewMate at http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM78097.

SFBAJGS, San Francisco, Sunday, February 9, 2020: Getting Ready for the 1950 Census: Searching with and without a Name Index

janicemsj@...
 

Topic:  Getting Ready for the 1950 Census: Searching with and without a Name Index
Speaker:  Dr. Steve Morse

Sunday, February 9, 2020
San Francisco Public Library, Main Branch
Latino/Hispanic Room
100 Larkin Street
San Francisco, CA 94102

Program begins 1:30 p.m.

When the 1950 census is released in April 2022, it will not have a name index.  So finding people in the census will involve searching by location instead.  Even when a name index becomes available, there will still be many reasons for doing locational searches.  The census is organized by Enumeration Districts (EDs), so the location needs to be converted to an ED before the census can be accessed.  The One-Step Website contains numerous tools for obtaining EDs. This talk will present the various tools and show circumstances in which each can be used.

Steve Morse is the creator of the One-Step Website, for which he has received both the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Outstanding Contribution Award from IAJGS, the Award of Merit from the National Genealogical Society, the first ever Excellence Award from the Association of Professional Genealogists, and two awards that he cannot pronounce from Polish genealogical societies.  In his other life Morse is a computer professional with a doctorate degree in electrical engineering.  He has held various research, development, and teaching positions, authored numerous technical papers, and written four textbooks and holds four patents.

Meetings are free and everyone interested is welcome to attend.  For more information visit http://www.sfbajgs.org/.

A great discovery, egg on my face, and thanks for help

Wendy Griswold
 

Dear cousins,

Over the years so many of you have helped me in my quest to find out
what happened to my grandmother's long-lost brother, Wolf Pfeiffer,
rejected at Ellis Island in 1906 due to spinal curvature. Among many
others, David and Susan Rosen, Alan Jordan, Dennis Gries, and Yehudah
ben Shlomo, who found so much stuff on collateral relatives that I
dropped out of choral society for a cycle to process it all. Whoever I
forgot to mention - please let me know!

We were working on the "family legend" that said that he had somehow
re-entered the country and lived out his life here. At least when I
was working with folks I did make it clear that it was "family
legend."

Because when I got sick of scouring census and immigration records I
started researching my mother's "distant" cousins. I found out that
they were not so "distant." Some were first cousins and one of them
was the son of said Wolf. I am now in touch with Wolf's granddaughter
in Israel (special thanks to Israel Picholz for helping to track her
down), and we are learning so much about what happened. Long story
short, he returned to Zurawno, became a fruit peddler, and died in his
sleep in 1922.

So. Egg on my face for barking up the wrong family legend all those years.

Time-worn, hackneyed moral of the story: work from what you know with
a capital K.

Thank you all. Be well,

Wendy Griswold

Re: Remembering Auschwitz: 75 Years After Liberation #holocaust #general

Dear Everyone,

My sincere gratitude to everyone that continues to help reunite families that were displaced during the Holocaust. Being the 75th anniversary of the Auschwitz liberation, it stands as a reminder to those who made the ultimate sacrifice and those that survived at a time when I’m sure they thought all Hope was lost. Here in America, there should be more reminders and remembrance days for the survivors of the Holocaust and especially for those that were lost. So many beautiful, brilliant, and kind people were killed for no reason...no reason at all.  I have a personal connection with the Holocaust because my Great-Aunt was a Holocaust survivor from Poland. I had the privilege and honor of knowing her when I was a teenager. My Great-Uncle was a US Army Lieutenant and met her when they liberated the camp in 1945. They were married in Germany and he sent her home to America, later following her when his Military Orders were completed in Europe. I only knew her for a short time before she passed away, but I’ve never met anyone like her since then. She was a beautiful woman inside and out and cherished life. Her memory lives on in me and everyone who knew her. Lastly, the one thing she told me was this: “Don’t ever let anyone tell you the Holocaust did not happen. It was real and should never be forgotten or allowed to be repeated in History.”  Blessings to all who perished during this time and much love to those who survived. Humanity will overcome hatred everyday. Live for those who were gone too soon and for those that continue to survive today. Thank you to everyone for your determination to keep what happened during the Holocaust alive today. In my humble opinion, I believe it is the least we can do for all those that were lost. Never Forget the past and teach the younger generation about what happened.

Descendants of Reb Chaim of Volozhin

Subject: Descendants of Reb Chaim of Volozhin
To: JewishGen Discussion Group <jewishgen@...>,
<ravsig@...>, Horowitz Association
<horowitzassociation@...>


I am researching the possibility that we are descendants of Reb. Chaim
of Volozhin. I haven't found a definite line as yet but have a few
hints to possible connections.

My great great grandmother Sarah Hinde (the supposed descendant) was
married to Shlomo KANTOR of Karlin (Pinsk). According to a family
story, they or her parents were taken to their wedding by Reb. Itzaleh
, Reb. Chaim's son as she was orphaned at the time of her marriage.:
According to published biographies of the "Volozhin family" , Reb.
Itzaleh did bury his daughter and son-in-law (LANDAU) . I haven't
found any mention of my ancestress in published biographies. Could the
LANDAU's have had other daughters which were not mentioned?

Another track: Reb. Chaim of Volozhin had another son, Joseph, who
seems to have been "purged" by family biographers who married a woman
from Shershev, and whose son became a Chassid (possible reason for
Joseph's disappearance from the charts.) Does anyone have a detailed
list of Joseph's descendants?

Among better known children of Sarah Hinde KANTOR was Chaim Dov KANTOR
an religious Israeli pioneer who lived in Zichron Yaacov and (nearby)
Shfeya.

Much like today rooms would be rented by the week, there were many residential hotels in the past.   Think of the Madeline books with her living at the Plaza Hotel only probably a more downscale.   The hotel supplied cleaning service, linens, towels and you paid a set rate.   Room service for food was also available.

IGRA Meeting February 11 Ra'anana, Israel-“The Administrator General of Israel-TracingUnclaimed Property Owners and Their Heirs Through GenealogicalResearch”

Elena Bazes
 

Join us for the next IGRA meeting in Ra’anana on Tuesday, February 11th. Our guest speaker is Adv. Jonathan Kirsch who will speak on “The Administrator General of Israel-Tracing Unclaimed Property Owners and Their Heirs Through Genealogical Research” This presentation will be in English.

 

Fulfilling traditional Jewish values, the Office of the Administrator General of Israel works to locate the owners of unclaimed assets in Israel or their heirs and has been able to increase its activities of late due to developments in genealogy and the proliferation of resources.

 

Jonathan Kirsch, senior member of the office, will describe the process by which each year, through genealogical research utilizing tools and resources such as archives, websites, social media, databases, records and newspapers, his department is able to reunite hundreds of people with their ancestral property and with each other. Jonathan will bring fascinating examples of how various items provided key clues enabling identification of property owners, piecing together their family trees and ultimately tracking down their heirs.

 

Jonathan Kirsch is a qualified lawyer originally from the UK. He directs the Department for the Location of Property Owners and Transfer of Unclaimed Assets to the State in the Office of the Administrator General of Israel whose international investigations trace the rights to property and their heirs. Jonathan made aliya to Israel in 1990 and currently lives in Bet Shemesh.

 

NEW LOCATION: Ra’anana Archives, 6 Golomb Street (between Eliezer Yaffe and Borochov Streets), Ra'anana.


Doors open at 19:00   Meeting begins at 19:30.
