Ok folks, I fell for it. I actually went to the parking lot and tried to log in. 
It appeared that were several hot wifi's in the area. So I tried them all. I tried many versions of the password - lower case, initial cap, all caps -- nothing got me signed in!
So unless you are really bored and have nothing else to do, take the trip. As for me, I would spend my time watching a movie instead!

Offering New Montefiore Cemetery photos (Long Island, NY) #photographs #usa

A. E. Jordan
 

I am going to make a brief visit to New Montefiore Cemetery (West Babylon, NY) on Sunday and wanted to offer the possibility of photos while I am there.

I have to emphasize time will be limited so it may be a sort of lottery or pot luck if I get too many requests. But I will do what I can especially if the requests happen to be close to the graves that I am going out there for.
 
Process I follow is fairly simple in offering to take photos for people.
 
You ID the grave from the cemetery's online database and send me the details. I take a photo and email it to you and in turn I appreciate a few dollars to help defer the expense of doing this for everyone, ie gasoline money.
 
I am happy to help out where I can, but please don't send me a generic name and ask me to find the person at the cemetery and please don't send me around the cemetery to find the 20 people named Jack Cohen because one of them might possibly be your long lost cousin. The cemetery is massive and a few people have asked me to do that and it is a very slow process that takes a lot of time and gasoline, etc.

Also if you are asking for an infant or child's grave please tell me. They are mostly in separate areas of the plots and a lot of those graves do not have markers.
 
New Montefiore is one of the best organized cemeteries and has a very good database and you can also call the office and they will help with some additional information on the telephone.
 
It is better if you search the name on the New Montefiore database versus the commercial Find a Grave because the position information and data is better at the cemetery's page.
 
Feel free to ask me questions via email and ask about other NYC area cemeteries because I will visit most of them as the spring/summer progresses. There's a few I do not go to because of distance or safety issues.
 
Please respect the discussion group and send your specific requests to me privately by replying to this email or my email address aejordan at aol dot com.

PS for folks who asked me for Mt Hebron a few weeks ago I have done about half the results but they are still on my camera. Unfortunately it rained last Sunday or I would have completed Mt. Hebron.

Re: Handwriting Analysis of name from Death Certificate #usa #records #general

I would agree with "Belmas."  Definitely not an "h" in there--look at how the "h" is constructed in "chronic" to the right.  The "m" seems to match how the person wrote that letter in the word "memorial" on the bottom.  There is no "i" in there because the writer consistently dotted that letter elsewhere.  Good luck.

Re: Trying to identify Congregation Ben Menashe LES #galicia

Mark Shapiro
 

In the 1939 WPA Survey, an alternative name is Congregation Nachlas Zwie Anshe Ungam (“Congregation Inheritance of Tzvi, People of Ungam”).  I was unable to find an “Ungam” in the JewishGen Communities Database, the JewishGen Gazeteer, or the Columbia Gazeteer of the World.  On the other hand, “Ungam” could very easily have been a misreading for “Ungarn”, which is Hungary.

Few photographs but the maps in Baedecker guides are wonderful ways to look back at cities.

Try calling the cemetery - cemeteries will take pictures for a fee

On jewishdata website is an Isaac Kaufman who died in 1900 - is this your Isaac? If so I can send picture to you.  No Dora or Minnie listed on this site

Iasi Birth Records (index) #romania

Michael Moritz
 

The Iasi Archives have entered into the Romanian Archives' online catalogue an index of birth records from 1865-1913 (solely the name, date of registration, and index number). We have extracted the first decade of these lists so far, and they are accessible at this link.
This includes more than 28,000 births registered in Iasi between 1865-1875 (of all religions). With this information, the original can be pulled. We have the majority of the birth records from 1865-1908, so if you locate anyone during this time period either in the spreadsheet or in the catalogue, we can likely find the original and send it to you in color, for a $15 contribution per record. Please reach out to Dana Lugassy, Iasi Town Coordinator, for help locating and pulling records (dlugassy314@...).

R Meir was a Levi.

The Tiktin rabbinical family of SW Poland may have been Cohanim (anyone know for sure?).

The Galanta affair very briefly: When the Rav of Galanta, R' Shimon Friedman passed away in 1891, his son-in-law R' Moshe Feldman was serving as Dayan. He was appointed to be Rav by supporters a few years later, but it was opposited by many community members, who have established another Jewish Community in 1895. (Their Rav was the famous R' Yosef Tzvi Duschinsky.)
R' Moshe Feldman left Galanta, settled in Budapest, where he was served as Rosh Beth Din of the Neolog Community, until his death in 1927(?).

The images still exist. For some reason they are no longer attached to the index records, but it's not hard to find them.
Since my last attempt at this message was rejected by the moderators, PM me for more info.

Escape from Czernowitz 1941 #holocaust #romania

Zev Cohen
 

In the summer of 1941, as the Germans invaded Russia, my Aunt Chana escaped from Czernowitz with a unit of the Komsomol in the direction of Vinitsa, never to be heard from again. I would appreciate contact with anyone or the relatives of anyone who participated in that retreat.

A third option is to check FindAGrave a free
Online search database.  The fourth option is to search in Jewishgen’s JOWBR database 
which is free but requires registration.

Both have provided me with lots of info.

You have the information contained in the record. The Family Search page that this is from states that there is no image available. To get the death certificate that this record refers to you would have to contact the New York City Health Department. Here is the link  https://www1.nyc.gov/site/doh/services/death-certificates.page
