I did respond a few minutes ago but I perhaps did not send it correctly? Not sure because I don't see it posted anywhere! Anyhow, this is more or less what I wrote. I would be grateful if you could acknowledge, so I know I have hit the right button! 

Thanks, Jill, for your interesting reply. I appreciate the time you took to provide me with this information. I will check out the sources you recommend.

Epsztejn and Cemelinska from Byaroza (Bereza) #belarus

Diane Jacobs
 

David,

 

Besides the All Belarus Database (which I do not personally find very helpful), there is the

CPSA (Children of Pruzany and Surrounding Areas database which includes Bereza

and then also go to stevemorse.org and check on his links to Bereza.  

 

Yitzhak Epstein also has family from Bereza and you should be able to get in touch with him

through Jewishgen Family Finder.

 

There is also the 1993 Kartuz Bereza Yiskor Book and two more books published previously

that should be of interest to you and you can probably find reference to them on Jewishgen,

shtetl links, etc.

 

My grandfather came from Bereza (Kartuz Bereza) to NYC in 1904 and I know there is information

online and through descdendents that should be helpful to you.

Subject: [JewishGen.org] Epsztejn and Cemelinska #belarus

 

Hello

 

I am doing my family genealogy. And I have found information in line with the “great great grandfather” and “the great great grandmother”.

The “great great grandfather” is called Mowsza Menachem Epsztejn (Мовша Менахемъ ЭПШТЕЙНЪ). He was born in Slonim between the year 1845 and 1850.

The “great great grandmother” is called Szajna-Frajda Cemelinska (Шайна-Фрайда ЦЕМЕЛИНСКАЯ). She was born in Bereza (Bioaroza) between 1852 and 1858.

I know that they did not live all life in these places, since they should have been arrived in Warszawa before 1880 (the birth date of my first brother of my great grandfather)

 

I would like to know if it is possible to find online database from Belarus Archives or Grodno Province/Slonim Archives. I did not success to find information or data that could guide my search in the Jews census records.

 

Thank you very much in advance for your help

 

David

caubel.david@...
 

i am looking for information from Henryk Epstein (my grand-grand-father) that lived in Warsaw. 
He was born in Warsaw in 1882.

I would like to find information about Hernyk Epstein (living house in Warsaw, job activities details, parents, and so). 
Moreover, i didn't find the Rewolucyjna street in Bialystok. I am looking for information about it.

Finally, i would like to know if there is any information about people that left from Warsaw to Bialystok after september 1939.

I thank you in advance for you help

All the best

Re: Divorce Among Jews in Poland #poland

Shelley Mitchell
 

Wendy -
Any divorce in Poland would probably occur in a religious setting like the marriage itself. The Rabbi would give a Gett. It’s possible that to avoid the “shame” of being divorced, it might not be announced on public records. However it would definitely be recorded by the Rabbi and the new marriage record would probably mention it.

When looking for the first wife, make sure to look for her under the surnames of both her parents. Their marriage would probably not be recognized if it wasn’t registered civilly.

300th anniversary of birth of the VILNA GAON #lithuania

Eric Mack
 

The Vilna Gaon, also know as the "GRA", was born during Pesah, 300 years ago.
 
Many events were planned to take place during 2020 to honor his achievements, and then the coronavirus struck.
 
An article about his legacy was published in the Jerusalem Post magazine on January 3, 2020.  The URL is https://www.jpost.com/judaism/a-math-loving-star-gazing-mystic-the-vilna-gaon-reexamined-612782
 
Thousands of us with Lithuanian ancestry are descended from him, and his spiritual legacy lives on in various yeshivot and shuls around the world.

Re: List of survivors in DP Camps. #holocaust

Hi from Paris,
Dear Margalit,
Concerning DP's camp in Germany, I am sur you will find answers by contacting Bad Arolsen archives.
In this place, Allied forces collected every piece of paper found after camps liberation and files from DP's administration.
You directly access and search Bad Arolsen archives with this link :https://arolsen-archives.org/en/search-explore/search-online-archive/
Be aware of their advice : only a part of victim's archives are on line.
If you find or if you search somebody, fill the "inquiry form" : https://arolsen-archives.org/en/search-explore/inquiries/submit-inquiry/
They reply always, but delay can be some weeks.
Apart from archives of deportation, nazis camps and DP's camps, they detain some personnal objects of our "Losts" and try to give them back to descendants.

Re: Seeking WEISS family history in Hungary / Romania #hungary #romania

Renee Steinig
 

Hi Ronald,

Fortunately, for people who immigrated, we can often turn to U.S. records to determine parents' names. 

A photo of your great-grandparents' grave is on FindaGrave...

Ignatz's Hebrew name was Yitzhak ben R'Yisrael; Theresa's was Tamar bat R'Moshe. It's possible that their death records will show their mothers' names. Also check passenger manifests, which often mention the name of the nearest relative still in the "country whence [the] alien came."

Re: Israel Death Index - Anschel and Ida Katz #israel

Dahn Cukier
 

AFAIK there is no central death data base open to the public.
The Bituach Leumi and Ministry of Interior have most death and
grave information. I do NOT know when the data began being recorded.
Bituach leumi pays for the burial of Israeli citizens.

Searching for graves in Israel online can be frustrating.
=Billiongraves claims to have photos, but the indexing takes time
=Findagrave volunteers need to know at least the cemetery or the
burial society (and the father's name).
=GRAVEZ is a new application that has photographed and indexed 28 of the
larger cemeteries and is working on Mt of Olives.
=Tel Aviv, Sgula, Hod Hasharon, Haifa, Military**
If you know of another online database write me directly and I will
summarize the list.
Jewishgen has a number of cemeteries and most important, the Hebrew
spelling of many names.

Remember that indexes can be wrong or misleading, searches should be
imaginative. This advise includes all indexes.

All requests to burial societies or searches on data bases require
the name of the deceased and the FATHER's name. The date
is also helpful.

If you have the Israeli ID number and know the location, the search
is a simple call to the office.

ID number. Either from a record you have or if the person owned a
home (house or apartment) AND the land was parceled, they MAY
be listed in the land registry - but you need the address. Land
registry queries cost about 3 USD each (Apartments do not correspond
to the numbering in the registry). I have only been able to
find one ID with this method.


I have requested location of graves from before 1955 and have been
told by the local society, that they have no recordings. One grave
was from 1936, the other from 1952. The people may have been lazy,
but they may have no information. The larger cemeteries may have
been better setup to keep records.

I was told on a kibbutz, that a person buried there was not because they
only bury members. It turned out that the person was the sister
of a member and the grave was located on the kibbutz.

**Military. The site is izkor.gov.il and includes people buried in military cemeteries,
soldiers who have died on active duty, police, at least some security personnel
and some prestate military figures.

                Is there a searchable Israeli death index?

Recently, Rose and Theo have offered hints about getting death certs.  My targets are siblings of my maternal grandmother and their children.

I have looked at FindAGrave and BillionGraves, and there is one person close.

Precisely, the earliest pair is Ida (perhaps born Ides) nee Puretz, and married to Anshel  Katz.

Ida was born 13 Feb 1899 and this is a compilation of notes that I have on her:

per XX > in Koln married a man from Breslau.  In 1935 left for Palestine.  ( died in Israel)

            Per YY > had one son, who died young - in his 20s.

                        Found some papers - 1966 from I. Katz,  Keren Kajemet 31 - Tel Aviv -

Per YY - this is Ida Puretz Katz . Also have 1950 receipts of packages to A(nschel). Katz and I. Katz at the same address (Blvd).

 

I see that there is a rather famous Asher Anchel Katz, and wonder if our Anschel had a first name not known to me.  My sources are long deceased.   I don’t know Hebrew, but can labor through, esp with machines translations.

 

Any help will be thanked profusely.
