Jewish Immigrants to Cuba #general

Ken Falkson <mokmanrs@...>
 

Hello all,

I just recently discovered an individual named Nechama FALKSON who might
be a relative of mine.

from what I have been able to uncover, she was born in Dokshits, Belarus
in 1926, immigrated with her family to Cuba in 1928, married there in
1947, had her children in the 1950's, and then moved with her husband
and children to Miami in the early 1960's.

Does anyone know of resources for researching in Cuba >from the late
1920's onward? I am particularly interested to find out about the other
family members she arrived in Cuba with and what became of them.

Thanks.

ViewMate Translation Request--Two German Death Notices #germany

Deborah Dworski
 

I've posted two German death notices to ViewMate, and I'd appreciate a
full translation so I can attempt to sort out the various family
members and details mentioned in each. Sooner is better as I'm hoping
to do some research based on whatever information is revealed while
I'm in the Mormon Library later this week.

Here are direct links to the death notices:

Re: Hart families from Pike County Mississippi #germany

Carol Mills <siess@...>
 

Dear Kay,

As you probably know HART is the anglicized version of "Herz" (heart in
German). Because these HART families were concentrated in Pike Co., MS,
they may ( or not) be related because family members often followed one
another >from place to place. Also remember that Mississippi Jewish families
and Louisiana Jewish families are very closely connected by marriage.
You may have to delve in both the HILLER ( >from Niederroedern, Bas-Rhin,
Alsace) and the HYMAN (Wilga, Poland) families. ( For that you may
want to see my book "The Forgotten Jews of Avoyelles Parish, Louisiana"
which came out in 2012 and its sequel which is due out in October:
Louisiana's Jewish immigrants >from Bas-Rhin, France.

Many Jewish immigrants >from Mississippi were buried in New Orleans
cemeteries. I located the gravesites of both Morris/Maurice and Pinkus
HART by using www.findagrave.com. They were both buried in Gates of
Prayer Cemetery #1 (formerly Chevra Thilim Cemetery) on Canal Street
in New Orleans. Both Morris (b. 14 July 1837) and Pincus (b. 9 Oct 1846)
were born in Powidz, Prussia/Germany ( now part of Poland).

You now have a place >from which to start your research. An on-line
genealogy, however, places Jacob HAFT's place of birth as Ganesen
[sic], Poland , probably Gnesen (Gniezno - in Polish). Whether or not
all these HART families are closely or loosely related may only be
determined by going to the original German/Polish records.

You may want to see what www.familysearch.org has filmed in that area.
(Gnesen and Powidz are about 150 miles >from each other)

Check also the shtetl links at Jewishgen for information about these towns.

I have also found that www.genealogybank.com , a site to which you must
belong, is invaluable in finding out details about our Jewish immigrant
families. It is a searchable site dedicated mostly to newspapers and
government publications where you can find articles as well as obituaries
which are a great resource in learning about the lives of our ancestors.

I found under "Necrology" - a report of the funeral of Jacob HART at
Summit, MS, in the New Orleans Daily Picayune of 13 November 1901:
"Funeral of Jacob Hart Summit Miss. Nov. 12
The remains of Mr. Jacob Hart, who died in New Orleans yesterday, were
buried here today in the Jewish cemetery. Mr. Hart, at the time of his
death was 72 years old. He was a native of Gnesen, province of Posen,
Germany, and came to America when quite young, locating in Holmesville
in the early 50s. [SNIP] [Request complete transcript >from the writer]

Does anyone know the English translations for "Nazwa majatku" and "Nazwa

Re: Lemberg/Lwow/Lviv 1849/1853 Cadastral Map on the Gesher Galicia Map Room #galicia

Some remark:

1. At present Lviv citadel is not a ruin but in a respectively good
condition, only one smaller tower was ruined. In the other
Maximilian towers there are hotel and stocks of Lviv sci library
(Stefanyk library); one tower was restored but at the moment is
not in use. In the central fortified barracks there is a bank.

2. For sure the citadel may have not been shown on the map for
the security reasons. At the same time the map was created in
1849. At that time the construction of citadel was only planned
(after the "Spring of Nations" rebellion) or it was just started. So
probably there was only the construction site at that place.
