Need to some help or advice. I have the death certificate for my GGGM Leah Brawer( misspelled on death certificate as Braver). It says she is buried in Mt Carmel Cemetery in New York. However, she is not listed on the internment list.


REPLY:


She is there as Leah Brown it looks like.  I looked at the plot he is buried in and then search jyst by 1930 and there are only three burials and one is Leah Brown on the same date as her. 

Check the stone but I am sure it is her.  The computer database was built many years later and errors creep in.  Why the person on the phone did not find it ... well ...

Re: ViewMate translation request - Hebrew #slovakia #translation

Dubin, David M. MD
 

Hi all
In reply to the reply about the tradition of having mothers’ names on tombstones, the tradition seems centered in Bratislava (Pressburg). It is found on nearly all stones in the new orthodox cemetery (which accepted burials starting in about 1850). It reportedly predates the arrival there of the famed Rabbi Moshe Schreiber, the “Chasam Sofer.”
In fact the stones in that cemetery only rarely include fathers’ names. The thought was that the departed were on their way to the next world, the “world of truth (עולם האמת in Hebrew),” and since paternity could not be 100% certain in those days, only the mother’s name was etched on tombstones.

The name looks like Czerwinski.  If you look at the New York arrival of the Neckar on Nov 25, 1903 you will find Mandel Czerwinski. He is passenger #23 on the manifest page. On the same page are, what appear to be two relatives of his, Abram and Beile Czerwinski from the same place.  Looks to me to be Slawinsk

"It says she is "buried in Mt Carmel Cemetery in New York. However, she is not listed on the internment list. "

I had a similar situation in Buffalo. My 2nd ggrandfather died and was buried in a (much smaller) cemetery, but I couldn't find any stone or listing in the cemetery records.

A friend of mine 'reorganized' the records of the cemetery, and kept him in mind. The cemetery had maybe10 burials where none should be; and maybe 12 empty plots where somebody should have been.

So he could be one of the 'extra' burials or he could have been buried elsewhere.  Death certificates aren't always right about burials which happen afterwards.

So you and I have to search (easy in Buffalo), but he isn't elsewhere with a stone, anyway. But you have the same problem that I have.

I was had the same problem with another NY cemetery.   I had seen his stone in the cemetery, but he was not on their computer database.

I called and asked them to do a card search and they did find him that way.

Hope this helps.

Hi Laurent,
Thanks for that elaboration. I am unfamiliar with their customs, so it is interesting to find out such details.
Henrik was born in Nagy Begany in Bereg county, now Ukraine. His wife Katarina Goldstein was born locally in Atrak (Horné Otrokovce), about 25 km NW of Nitra. DNA analysis confirms that they were both Ashkenazi.

I have the same issue except the Russian Army conscription was in Poland about 1845-50. Do records for this period exist and can we access them? How? The surname was probably FRIEDMAN (Polish: FRIDMAN) or NATAN (Polish version of NATHAN).

Re: Missing Grave Mt Carmel Cemetery #usa

Hilary Henkin
 

Hi,
I went to findagrave.com, and searched on "bra*er."  There were 30 results.  There is an entry for Leah Feldman Braver, Oct. 1845 to Oct. 29, 1930, at Mt. Carmel:
https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/76250935/leah-braver

Is this the right person, or are there two Leah Bravers?  It seems to me that the chances of two women born and died the same month/year, same son's name, is worth investigating as more  than mere coincidence.  I'd recommend reseearching the second one, to see if she existed.  The informant might have provided incorrect information, in the flurry of grief.

It is interesting, though, that the entry for Leah Braver at findagrave has no grave location, while the entry for David Braver has exact grave location.  You might email the fellow listed as the Source at findagrave, to see if he has any additional information.  Getting someone to physically go there might be worthwhile.

And as for Braver or Brawer, keep in mind there is a linguistic link between "w" and "v" in our old-world languages.

Location: Havana, Cuba family from: Vilna, Dieveniskes, Divenishok, Dziewieniszki, Jevenishok, Devenishki, Dzievianiski

Year: about 1925-30

 

Comments: The first photo shows Leyzer, Rosa, and their daughter of unknown name. The photo is taken in Cuba, as the studio stamp indicates. Leyzer’s parents are Yosef and Matla, both of unknown last names. This was the second marriage for both Matla and Yosef. Matla had been married before to Yakov Dubin (name variants include Dubinski and Dublianski). A niece from the Matla-Yakov Dubin marriage is seeking to identify the surnames of Yosef, Leyzer, and Rosa. I have checked the Jewish Cemetery at Guanabacoa and I did not see a Leyzer or Rosa (of any surname) matching these dates so most likely the family emigrated off the island.

Kremenets region - Village of Kolosova #ukraine

Arkady K <arkadyka@...>
 

Hello,

I previously posted a help request for Dolginovo trying to find some great aunts/uncles, no such luck.
I believe that two of the siblings Yaakov Kamenetsky (famous rabbi who moved to America) and his brother Haim-Zorach were both born in Kolosova which is present-day Ukraine. 

However Kolosova is not easy to find.  On the off change that this is the same Kolosova located in the Kremenets region, would appreaciate any help.   I have not conisdered using JewishGen to search for anything Ukraine related, but I am grasping at straws.

On the biography of Yaakov Kamenetsky it states 'Born in a small hamlet of Kolosova'...
