to see if the Plot was allocated to a
specific lamdsmannschaft but they have only information linking the Plot
to Mount Sinai Synagogue


Unfortunately no time frame is mentioned but in the 1930s there was a survey of sorts done of all the religious institutions and it is now on microfilm at the NYC City Hall Library .... same building at the Archives but different room in the back of the first floor,

I have not done too much work with the file but when I tried one of the staff in the room helped.  On their computer they had a finding aid with permitted them to search by name and then they can ID the reel and file number.  Some of the surveys were multiple pages with the history of the organization and some were one page and very basic.

Also I believe it is possibly to look at the original incorporation papers to see how they described the organization.  The burial societies, if they were incorporated, worked like an insurance company with that level of regulation by the state so there's a paper trail.  I think the same is true if it was an established shul versus something that operated out of someone's basement or such. 

But all of that will only tell you about the organization.  Some had fairly strict rules about maintaining their geographic heritage or such but a lot of them took in outsiders so to speak.  Relatives by marriage or even friends seemed to be able to buy plots. Personally I have family by marriage in a Warsaw plot who had no known connection to Warsaw or even Poland.  The man killed himself and the distraught wife might have turned to a friend or something to help make the arrangements for his burial or since most burial societies shunned a suicide they might have had to hunt around to find one that did not know him or did not care that he killed himself. 

Long way of saying you can find information on the organizations but that does not certainly confirm the personal information.

My great great grandfather was known in Romania as Shapsie, but when he came to America (1889), he Americanized it to Saul.  His Hebrew name was Shabtai (or Shabsai in Ashkenazic pronunciation).

My religious school students copied the names and dates on the memorial plaques in the synagogue.  I remember that there is a push to record this information somewhere.  Can somebody tell me what group collects that information and how I should send the data to them.

Hi Leya,

This is the birth certificate registration for Margarita Levinoff, born on Nov 4, 1938 in San Luis Potosi, Mexico, to Miguel Levinoff, 27, originally from Vakum (?), Russia and his wife, Aida Bosques, originally from Cuba, married, 17 years old. 
Miguel's parents, both deceased, were Jorge Levinoff and Ana Kuik.
(On the left side, is written Miguel's immigration file number: 82113.
Miguel & Aida's address was: Calle de Guajardo 37, if I can understand correctly the handwriting.
Not a literally translation, but the main points.
I hope it helps you in your research.
Regards.

Re: Mount Judah cemetery, Mount Sinai plot #usa #general

Census records show Louis is from Austria.  Citizenship application indicates from Germany - although records indicate Mamie was from Germany.

Suggestions - try to get actual Death Certificate

                        Did Louis have siblings? Did his parents come to US?  You can try searching records for those relatives - passenger manifests, marriage & death certificates. Marriage certificates give place of birth information, citizenship records

Hope this helps

Re: Searching for Ann Muriel PINKUS , Daily City, California #usa

Prim50@...
 

I also am researching Pinkus ancestry. Grandfather Harry (Pinchos)  Pinkus born possibly in Sochachev Poland (near Warsaw) about 1888 and immigrated to US in 1912.. Brother Maier Pinkus was given as contact for a sister Esther Pinkus who immigrated to US in 1923. Father;s name was Wolf/Zev Pinkus. I know nothing about the family prior to immigration or what happened to Maier. Harry Pinkus married Helen Flam from Warsaw in US. Also looking for information on Flam's.

Re: The male name Shapsei #names #lithuania

Adam Turner
 

Shapsei (Shopsy, Shepsel, etc.) is a Yiddish form of the Hebrew name Shabbatai.

I have at least four Shabbatai/Shepsels on my tree. The generation they were born in probably influenced the names they went by in English.

The two born before 1880 both went by the name Samuel or Sam.
Another, born in 1903, was a Sidney.
The fourth was born in 1929 and at various times went by the names Salven, Selwyn, or Shep.


Re: The male name Shapsei #names #lithuania

David Gordon
 

My father's Hebrew name was Shapsei, or Shopsy (after a great-grandfather named Shabbetai).  His given name was Charles but for almost his whole life he went by Shep.

Re: Why the name "Sylvester"? #names

BRENERDA@...
 

I can't tell you way but Sylvester in  my Levy family dates back to the early 1800 with a family from Koschmin, Pleschen, Posen, Prussia . Now, I believe is Kroroszyn, Powiat krotoszyfiski, Welkoposkie, Poland.  The Hebrew on the tombstone states birth at "Kashfein". It is Sylvester Louis Levy 1808 circa-1868 who is buried in Memphis. He, wife and 4 children arrived in NYC in 1857. Slyvester was used in three generations of his two sons. Its use died out with the last male in each brother's line.

My husband’s Park paternal family: Beletje Betsy Elizabeth David BUIJTENKANT (1818-1882, father David Isaac. Mother Bloeme Levie KOEKOEK) who married Simon Hartog PARK (1814-1872). Their family left Amsterdam to London for a few years (cigar makers-sound familiar) then to Boston about 1862. Many stayed in England. 
The extended PARK family that stayed in Amsterdam died in the Holocaust (over 250). 
 
I have uploaded to Billion Graves a lot of PARK and BUIJTENKANT headstones from Amsterdam and Boston.
Other names BRUSKET, MOK, VOORZANGER, FRANKFORT, GOEDHART. 
 


Moses Hyam or Hyam Moses - name reversal in early 19th century #unitedkingdom

jlevy2008@...
 

Hello,

I'm trying to establish the full names of the parents of Benjamin Louis HYAM, born about 1817 in London, died 1870 in Swansea

In the censuses of 1841 and 1851, Benjamin was recorded with his mother, Sarah, and her second husband, Cosman COHEN.

On 19th November 1856, he married Lucy, the daughter of Jacob HADIDA in London's Great Synagogue. The transcribed marriage record (https://synagoguescribes.com/blog/person-details/?value=8176) shows that his father's Hebrew name was Chaim. This matches the inscription on his gravestone (https://www.jewishgen.org/jcr-uk/Cemeteries/Swansea_Cemeteries/Burial_Townhill_A_293.htm) which gives his full name as Binyamin Yehuda ben Chayim. However, according to the 1851 Anglo-Jewry, his father was Moses HYAM (https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/c1851.php?rec=C1851C_0019985).

Now, on 3rd June 1812, a Hyam MOSES (Chayim ben Mosheh Shvab) married Sarah LEVY (Sarah bat Yehuda-Leib) in the Great Synagogue. See here https://synagoguescribes.com/blog/person-details/?value=2273

My question is whether it is likely that Hyam MOSES reversed his names and became known as Moses HYAM, with his wife, two sons and future generations bearing the surname HYAM?

Regards,

Justin Levy
