Isaac YOSELOWITZ, Manhattan New York #help #records #New York

Yohanan
 

Need help in finding more details about Isaac YOSELOWITZ from Manhattan, New York.
I found 2 records on Ancestry:
1. 1910 Census which show his age as 50 (born 1960, Russia), arrived to New York 1907, wife Gussie and children names. First son born 1884. 
2. New York extracted Death Index, 1862-1948, Certificate Number 34675, which show death in 1914, age 65, estimated birth 1849 . 
It could possibly be the same person. 
I am mainly interested to find his parents' names, trying to confirm the exact family relation with a DNA match of one of his descendants.
I wonder if any of you can help in finding his burial location or more information about him; hopefully his father's name will be recorded on the headstone.
Thanks,

(Ukraine) Looking for tour guide and archives researcher #galicia #ukraine

rsperber@...
 

Greetings,

 

I am planning a trip to western Ukraine next fall, the focus of which will be Lviv (L’wow) and two nearby ancestral towns, Yavoriv (Jaworów) and Rava-Rus'ka (Rawa Ruska).  It is likely we will continue on to the Ternopil region to visit my wife’s ancestral towns of Buchach (Buczacz) and Zolotyi Potik (Potok Zloty).

 

I am looking for recommendations for:

  • ·        A local guide for each leg of the trip (Lviv & Ternopil), or a single guide for both regions if possible, and
  • ·        An archives researcher for each area (or one researcher for both) who can do some advance records research in preparation for the trip.

 

Of course, if there is a person you can recommend to handle all of the above, so much the better.  Thanks in advance for you help!

I posted recently asking for help with the name Motchi; many thanks to everyone who responded both publicly and privately.  Everyone agreed that Motchi is Mordechai (or a related name).  Which means Motchi is a man.  And which presents our next problem.  Both my cousin and I have oral stories (from completely separate sources) in which Motchi is married to Heshi.  We had previously both operated on the assumption that Heshi was short for Hirsh/Girsh and that Motchi must be a woman.  However, with this new complete agreement that Motchi is a man, that puts us back a step with regard to Heshi.  I have once again consulted all the sources I can find and come up with little certainty.  What is Heshi likely to be a "nickname" for if Heshi is a woman?  Again, thanks very much in advance for everyone's help.

(US) Museum of Southern Jewish Experience to Open in New Orleans in Fall of 2020

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

 

The Museum of Southern Jewish Experience will open in New Orleans, Louisiana in the fall of 2020 with over 7,000 artifacts in 9,000 square feet. It will cover the 13 states of the 11 Confederate ones plus Kentucky and Oklahoma.  As Maryland already has a Jewish museum they are not including Maryland.  The Confederate states are: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.

 

The story of Jews in the South begins in colonial times –Spanish and French colonies not British ones. Jews who moved to the early South from abroad largely found their niche as merchants, having little experience with agriculture.

 

The Museum is looking for broader assistance from the Jewish and non-Jewish community to provide artifacts and stories. According to the executive director of the Museum, Kenneth Hoffman, “While states bordering Louisiana are well represented in the collection, the Carolinas, Eastern Tennessee and Kentucky need beefing up. Hoffman says the museum is also hoping to accrue items from the Civil War and even the Revolutionary War.”

 

Previously and for 26 years the museum operated on the grounds of a reform summer camp in Utica, Mississippi.

Re: Given name "Motchi" #lithuania

Sounds like a nickname for the man's name Mordechai. Other versions are Motti, Mottel, Mottke.

Subject: [JewishGen.org] Given name "Motchi" #lithuania #names #givenname

For years, I have dutifully included in my family tree an individual with the given name "Motchi."  That was how it was provided to me by a great-aunt, now long dead.  When pushed for more information, either about the name, the person, or the person's history, she knew nothing.  She knew (from stories) only of a given name that sounded like Motchi.  I've never made any headway at all discovering who this person was. 

Recently, I made contact with another family member who also had the name Motchi in his tree, backed by a similar oral tradition.  To make things even more complicated, in my version, the name belonged to a woman.  In his tradition, it was a man's name.  The only thing both traditions agree on is that this person, whoever he or she was, lived in Lithuania in the early to mid-19th century.  Even the last name is uncertain. 

Despite valiant efforts to discover a more "formal" name that this might be a nickname or other version of, we have both come up empty-handed.  Can anyone help us decipher the name?  Or even the right gender?  Thanks in advance.

Re: (Philippines) Jewish Soldiers Buried Under a Cross Mistake Fixed after 75 Years

Ken A. Drabinsky <kenJDgen@...>
 

Thanks to the Operation Benjamin article (Jan Allen) for this important string of messages. To follow up on Eric Feinstein, I appreciate your links because I have also found a cousin who was killed in action as a French Nationalist in the town of Arthonnay, France. This was the 42nd Infantry Regiment and included a number of Senegalese soldiers. He was initially buried in a soldiers trench near that town in June 1940. His remains were later moved to Necropole nationale La Ferme de Suippes, a military cemetery near Paris.

I googled his name—Moisek Boguslawski—and found a picture in a small church in Arthonnay of a plaque with over 100 soldiers names listed. They were killed in that skirmish (a massacre). I contacted the wonderful photographer of that photo in France who graciously went to the cemetery and recorded all documents including pictures of the cross and accurate birthdate/location. After several attempts to contact the French government departments, changing the headstone appeared to be an impossible task.

I will definitely contact your links (& those of Tom Klein), much appreciated.

Re: General question about Relations for our Town

sjgwed@...
 

I, too, visited some of my ancestral towns in eastern Galicia, including Zbaraz, in late fall, 2006. By then, the dark years of the Holocaust had come and gone like a giant tsunami, its colossal waves bringing death to millions, wiping out everything, and then receding as if it never happened.

The Jewish cemetery was still shabby and untended, although I have heard that since then, it's been cleaned up, which is good. I commend the efforts of those today who hope to meet with current residents, but I could not look at any old person without thinking... did he/she play a part, or know someone who did? I have also read that the Soviets relocated many people to Zbaraz after the war, so their memories don't go all the way back. 

I was driven, in part, by an online image I had seen of a 10-feet tall cenotaph erected in 1947 "in memory of the terrible destruction which was wrought by the German and Ukraine mass-murdered, in our town of Zbaraz." I assumed that the cenotaph was in Zbaraz, because carved near the top were the words, "Here Lies Soap." Eventually, I found the cenotaph in Beth David Cemetery, in Elmont NY, after I returned to the US. Even so, my visit to Zbaraz was powerful, and sad.

I did eventually get a list with info. Best not to try this on an iPad, bc the screen isn't big enough to see it all! Once you have found the name on the list scroll down to the scan image and click on it. Another list pops up with drop down icons for each passenger.

the commonwealth war graves commission maintains graves for fallen soldiers of britain and the commonwealth countries (canada, australia, new zealand, india, etc.) all over the world. they replace lost or damaged stones, and have also fixed mistakes, such as jewish service personnel buried with the wrong kind of marker. unfortunately, i know of at least one case where the jewish graves were vandalized in a small military cemetery in the aegean.

if you know the location, you should be able to contact the organization which maintains that cemetery, and hopefully they will cooperate in having the stone changed.

Thank you Jan for your post and the link to the JPOST article about Operation Benjamin. This has given me ideas.

My maternal grandmother's brother was an auxiliary doctor in the German army in WWI and was killed in July 1918 in Northern France and buried there under a cross. The story goes that my ggfather, a very devout Jew, told the family his son had been killed somewhere on the Eastern front and his burial place was unknown. My ggfather had a memorial stone set up on the family grave in Weissensee cemetary, with an epitaph describing his son as an "unerschütterlich treue Deutscher" (an adamantly faithful German) whose heart was in Israel.

Is Operation Benjamin restricted to American soldiers killed in WWII? Does anything similar exist for WWI and for participants in other armies?

Type in the name you are researching in the search box. You may not get the actual manifest but a listing of what is on the manifest. When you click on the manifest a list of passengers names appears. Click on the name you are searching then a new window appears with the source listed a passenger registers.

 

The Holland America Line (HAL) transported about one million Eastern Europeans t America from Rotterdam between 1880 and 1920.  The HAL had offices in Bulgaria, Latvia and Russia where tickets could be purchased for the train to Rotterdam, the boat to America.

 Hi Jan,
Is there an English option in the actual archives site?  Somewhere down the bottom there is a link to the archives site, but before I start with the online translations  megillah I thought I would ask. I found names, clicked on them and got the list, clicked on the name and got the basic info, which is great, but how do I know if a manifest is available?
