Images of the Jewish births, marriages and deaths for Łosice (1829-1860) can be found on the Polish Sate Archives website, at: https://www.szukajwarchiwach.gov.pl/en/zespol/-/zespol/56368
Looking at Łosice 1858 Marriage #11, it says:
 - Groom:  Moszek Leyb LEWIN, age 19, son of Herszek and Sura Ryfka, of the village of Przesmyki,
 - Bride:  Fayga GUTMAN, age 17, daughter of Joska and Masia, also of the village of Przesmyki.

JOWBR Grows Past 3.7 Million Burial Records! #JewishGenUpdates #general

Nolan Altman
 

     JewishGen is proud to announce its “2020 Pesach Update” to the JOWBR (JewishGen’s Online Worldwide Burial Registry) database, (previously known as the “2019 Year-End Update”). Therefore, please keep in mind that this update only includes submissions received by November 30, 2019.  All subsequent submissions will be part of the next update. The reason for the delay is that JewishGen’s databases were being reviewed, and in many cases, code was rewritten, to make the updating process more efficient for future updates.  We hope to get back to our usual semi-annual update schedule as follows:

 

            Data received by May 31                Update in July (pre-conference)

            Data received by November 30     Update in December

 

Please visit www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/ to access the JOWBR database. If you’re a new JOWBR user, we recommend that you visit our screencast page at www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Screencasts/  and take a look at the first two explanatory screencasts.

 

     This update, adds approximately 120,000 new records and 52,000 new photos.  The database is adding and/or updating 550 cemeteries.  This update brings JOWBR’s holdings to 3.71 million records and 700,000 photos from approximately 8,670 cemeteries / cemetery sections representing 133 countries! 

 

     Once again, donors for this update include a mix of individuals, Jewish genealogical societies, historical societies and museums.  We appreciate all our donor’s submissions and the transliteration work done by a faithful group of JewishGen volunteers. 

 

Of special note, this update includes the first installment from the Lasky Collection.  His submission will include approximately 125,000 records, the vast majority with photos.  For more information on Mr. Lasky's current work, please see www.museumoffamilyhistory.com (the Museum of Family History website.)

 

          Significant additions to JOWBR by country include:

 

  • Australia – approximately 800 records and 2,400 photos from new and existing cemeteries.
  • Canada – 400 additional records and 4,300 photos, mostly from Montreal, Quebec area cemeteries.
  • Czech Republic – approximately 5,000 new records and 3,400 photos from 14 cemeteries.
  • England – 1,250 records and 250 photos from 6 cemeteries.
  • France – 3,000 new records covering 121 new or existing cemeteries.
  • Germany –10,000 new records and 2,000 photos covering 70 new or existing cemeteries including 6,000 records from Jüdischer Friedhof Schönhauser Allee in Berlin.
  • Moldova – added 1,5000 new records and photos from 2 Bessarabia cemeteries.
  • Morocco – added 1,600 new records and photos from 2 Moroccan cemeteries.
  • Netherlands – added 4,400 new records, including 4,300 from Wassenar.
  • Poland –approximately 6,200 new records from 23 new and existing cemeteries including 5,100 from 3 cemeteries in Wroclaw.
  • Russia – added 2,500 new records from 7 Russian cemeteries including 2,000 from Astrakhan.
  • United States - approximately 100,600 new records and 4,250 photos for 24 new and 42 updated cemeteries including 91,200 records from Mount Sinai Memorial Parks and Mortuaries in Los Angeles.

           

Please see www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm for a complete listing of all cemeteries in JOWBR.

 

     I want to particularly thank Eric Feinstein who has been helping me to find and gain permission to add many non-US records from Germany, France and under-represented countries.  Eric’s group of volunteers includes Sandra Bennett, Lineke Bos, George Goldschmied, Ann Meddin Hellman, Maurice Kessler, Hans Nord, Deborah Ross, Marylin Shalks, and Suzanne Tarica. In addition, a big thank you to our volunteer transliterators, led by Gilberto Jugend, without whom we would not be able to add the information from some very difficult to read photos.

 

     We appreciate all the work our donors have done and encourage you to make additional submissions.  Whether you work on a cemetery / cemetery section individually or consider a group project for your local Society, temple or other group, it’s your submissions that help grow the JOWBR database and make it possible for researchers and family members to find answers they otherwise might not.  Please also consider other organizations you may be affiliated with that may already have done cemetery indexing that would consider having their records included in the JOWBR database.

Maiden name: Is it GUTMAN or SZTABINSKA #names

Marjorie Geiser
 

Hi all,
 
I'm trying to figure out if the maiden name for my 2nd g-grandmother is GUTMAN or SZTABINSKA, and could use some ideas/suggestions for searching.
 
Last year, thanks to Stanley Diamond of JRI-Poland, I was able to find a marriage record for my g-grandfather Isaac LEVINE/LEWIN and Sura ZYLBERNAGEL, in Warsaw, in 1897. In fact, in that record, I learned that Isaac's parents were (listed as) Mowsza Lejbka LEWIN and Fejga SZTABINSKA.
 
However, yesterday, while following hints on Ancestry, a name that kept coming up for Fejga was GUTMAN. In fact, I found a marriage record for Moszko Lejb LEWIN and Fejga GUTMAN, in Losice, Siedlce Gubernia, in 1858.
 
The dates fit, and the names are too close to be a coincidence. So, I think I have the right marriage record. However, other than an LDS film number (which I can't access while the Family History Centers are closed), I haven't been able to find anything that combines these two surnames, and I don't know who Fejga's parents were.
 
I tried doing various search combinations on both JewishGen and JRI-Poland, but am not coming up with anything different than these two records.
 
I'm GUESSING that perhaps SZTABINSKA MIGHT be her maiden name, and maybe she was married previously? But again, although I can find other Fejga GUTMANs and other Fejga SZTABINSKAa, I have no way to confirm if any are the right one without more info from her marriage record.
 
Thanks for any help or suggestions!

Viewmate Request - Translation Headstone Hebrew - #translation

Jeff Miller
 

I've posted a photograph of a headstone with Hebrew inscriptions for which I need a full translation of the Hebrew. It is on ViewMate at the following address ...
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM80481
Please respond via the form provided on the ViewMate image page.

 What I know about my great grandmother Zipporah LANE is that her parents were Berel (Dov Ber) BLANKFORT and Chana WHITEMAN/VETMANOWICZ.

Zipporah was born in Lithuania in 1860, lived near Panevezys/Pumpenai area on an inn near a river [I visited the location in 2007] and came to New York where she died in Brooklyn, NY in 1941.

 Her obituary says she was a religious woman who studied the Talmud.

 Thank you very much for your assistance

 

Warmest Regards,    Jeff Miller

Marcovich/David Family #romania #general

stevenjdavid@yahoo.com
 

Hello... I've been working on my genealogy on and off (mostly off) over the past 30 years.  Now that I'm back into it after at least eight years, I was very happy to discover so many searchable databases here on JewishGen.  Records from some countries have given me some amazing pieces of information.  While those in others (such as Romania) have been very disappointing.
 
My great grandfather was Isaac/Yitchak David, born about 1873 in Romania (probably Iasi or Peatra Neamt).  His parents were Shoyl Ber and Martem/Miriam David, who died around the turn of the 20th century.  Isaac/Yitzchak married Sarah Brener, born 1875, daughter of Moise and Raina Brener.  Isaac and Sara David had a child who died as an infant around 1896 (I believe that I have the child's death certificate, but I don't understand Romanian), and shortly thereafter, they emigrated to Montreal, and later to Boston. 
 
Isaac David (and his wife, Sarah Brener) had siblings who remained in Romania.  I know that one of Isaac's sisters was called Rebeka, who married a man whose last name was Marcovici or Marcovich.  They had several children, one of which was named Joseph.  We know that her children survived the war, as they were in touch with their American cousins through the 1950s. I believe that after the war they lived in Bucharest.  I would love to track down this Rebeka and her descendants.  Searchable records via the JewishGen databases have yielded nothing.  I have entered every name and combination of names, Hebrew and secular, as well as searched on geni.com and ancestry.com for possible tree matches.  I'm wondering if there are other resources for me?
 
Many Romanian Jews emigrated to Israel in the 1950s and 60s.  When I moved to Israel 20+ years ago, there was a service for finding lost relatives.  They were successful in helping me find some Brener relatives who moved here, but because I didn't know the given name of Rebeka's husband, there were too many possibilities to narrow the search for a Joseph Marcovich, son of Rebeka and Xxxxxx Marcovich.
 
Any ideas?

Re: Seeking 1940 ship name and manifest Lisbon to Mozambique Portugal Lourenço Marques #general

You probably look for the spanish ship Salvador, sailing under
 the flag of Uruguay.  The passenger ship departed from Istanbul, Turkey on December 11th, 1940, carrying  327 passengers -Bulgarian Jewish refugees. 
She had a capacity for only 40 passengers.  The ship foundered in the 
Sea of Marmara on December 12th, 1940. with the loss of 204 passengersRead more at :
 
I´d also like to mention that Lorenzo Marques was the capital of  the 
Overseas Province of Mozambique before it  became independent from 
Portugal in 1975. Since then the capital  was renamed Maputo.

Re: Unsure if these are names! (Breina) #names

Breina could also have been anglicized to Beth. There are no hard rules to corresponding Yiddish or Hebrew names to English ones, it's mostly preference.
