And almost all burials before 2013 are now in the international database for Jewish Cemeteries, if the individual was buried in any of the Toronto area cemeteries. I personally am now working on 2013 to the present for the last of the cemeteries that needs to be updated. That will give you the date of the funeral, place of death if that was known, and the company that did the funeral, which should aid in finding the death certificate. Death may have been outside Toronto, or even outside Canada, yet the burial would have been in Toronto or the 'GTA' as the Greater Toronto Area is known. The newest Jewish cemeteries for Toronto are all north of the city in York county, in the Vaughan area, yet are considered Toronto cemeteries. And there is actually a third funeral home, Hebrew Basic, that may have handled the funeral. - www.hebrewbasicburial.ca - and their web site lists all of the cemeteries.

I also live in Toronto and I saw that you are looking for a death certificate.  If the death was in the last 30 years or more, you can go onto the 2 burial sites, Benjamin’s park memorial Or Steeles Memorial and go into their archives. You could then request a death certificate.

Re: Pearl FINKELSTEIN missing death records 1891

Ancestry has the Manitoba death index for a female Finkelstein who died 8 April 1895.  Have you checked this record?  If this is not Perl, consider that she may have died in route to Winnipeg.  The ship's manifest says they were going to Chicago which was probably on their westward route to Winnipeg. Possibly she died before arrival in Winnipeg..

Excellent! Thank you!

No ties to MI5 but they were given a notebook found on his possession with information about the scheme but he joined an affiliated regiment of the French Foreign Legion and was captured by the Germans in June 1940 in the Somme area. From there, his trail disappears.

Paul,
I do not know the specific answer to your question, but I have many relatives in Winnipeg.  The majority of them who have passed away are buried in Hebrew Sick Benefit Cemetery, 2605 McPhillips St., Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.  Maybe the cemetery has some data on your family.
 
Good luck,

Ozzy,

The question is too vague.  It may be more helpful if you indicated the last names and towns where they lived.  If you have first names and birth years, it may help narrow things down a little more, especially with common last names.

Sincerely,

Hi Linda,

We probably have to separate two things here.  The U.S. allowed a very restricted amount of immigrants at that time, and we now know that for years The U.S. was not even using the small allocated amount of permissible immigrants in from certain countries, i.e. Germany.

It makes sense that people would remember it as The U.S. not taking any more immigrants, considering how hard it was to get a spot.

This page from The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is very informative on the subject.

Pearl FINKELSTEIN missing death records 1891

Paul Silverstone
 

For some time I have been trying to find the death details of my
great-grandmother Pearl Finkelstein. Perhaps someone has an idea I have
not tried.
She arrived in New York in December 1890 with her son Joseph & his
family, on the s.s. Russia from Hamburg. Her age is given as 59. She
was a widow, her husband Mendel having died about 1880.
This age is unlikely because her son Tevel already in Winnipeg was born
about 1840.
The first child in the family named Pearl was born in 1895, so she had
died by that year.
Joseph's daughter wrote that she had arrived in Winnipeg which would
have been in January 1891. She is not listed in the census of 1891
taken in May.
A search of the Manitoba Archives reveals no death certificate for her.
The Jewish cemetery in Transcona is missing most of its gravestones
and there is no list of who is buried there.

I believe she must have died shortly after arriving in Winnipeg the
winter of 1891.

Bob,
"s.o." - shorthand for "son of", as in Ios son of David.

I listed the people with the last name you asked about in the Novaya Ushitsa documents.  Notes for one of the families states that they live in Staraya Ushitsa now, so I check records for that town and found Leybish there, along with some additional family members.

Re: Joining Ukraine discussion #ukraine

I've seen him mentioned in a Russian language article under the name Чурапин (standard transliteration Churapin). "Ch" in his name is read as  "chess", "cheer"; "ou" transliteration to French to express the Russian letter/sound "у" (book).

There are a lot of results in Google for this last name, including WW2-era Soviet military on pamyat-naroda.ru.

Didn't he have ties with MI5 and provided information to them about the German counterfeit currency plan?  He had to be well placed to be in the know about this information.  Having a hard time reconciling his role in the counterfeiting intelligence with his stateless status and being an enlisted man or a junior office (not sure about his rank).  But then again, I don't know much about him.

Sorry for my delay in replying. I couldn't find the original post then saw your comment. The town name was spelled incorrectly: Nova Ushytsia (Khmelnytska).

Re: How to find UKRAINE birth and marriage records #ukraine #records #russia

A little delayed in my reply. sorry. Yes, the name was Duvid. As said earlier, his spouse was Ruchel and I do not know her maiden name.

The children I am certain of are Simon (Shimon) b. July 19 1881, d. Mar 1963 in Philadelphia. Shimon was my great-grandfather. He also had a daughter, Clara (original name or DOB 1887 d unknown), Samuel (Shmuel) born in Commetoes in 1887 and died Apr 1963 (not certain where but most likely Philadelphia. Lastly, Morris (b 1/10/1892 in Commetoes and died 6/23/1959 in Philadelphia. My guess is I was also wrong on Duvid - I suppose Commetoes is the most likely place of birth.

I have run across the name Mortko but haven't been able to place him. Are you suggesting he was also Duvid's son. Lastly, I am unclear about the original comment made Ios s.o. Duvid. Was Duvid's father also Duvid?
