Re: nad Dneper info for Belarus? #belarus #general

mvayser@...
 

There are 2 cities named Mogilev, one on the river Dnieper, the other on the river Dniester.  The correct name is either Mogilev or Mogilev-na-Dniepre (literally Mogilev on Dnieper).  The other was called Mogilev or Mogilev-na-Dniestre (Mogilev on Dniester), in 1920's it was officially renamed to Mogilev-Podolsky (Mogilev in Podolia).
The former and the one you are interested in was the capital of the eponymous governorate and is part of Belarus now.  The difference in spelling is due to transliteration from different languages.
There is quite a bit of information online about history of the city.  You can also check Wikipedia articles in different languages, besides English, such as Russian, Belarus, Ukrainian, etc, while using Chrome or similar browser to translate the page.

Did you check Yad Vashem site, there are multiple people with this last name that come up in the search: https://yvng.yadvashem.org/index.html?s_lastName=briker&s_place=mogilev.

Does it have location information by society name and gate numbers?

Allan Jordan


Yes - Death certificates, gates, societies and comments are recorded for very many of the records.
I have never tested the information on Jewishgen.  The problem there is - if the material is available - that only a single record is shown at a tine which to my mind rather looses its completeness.

I recently found out that my grandfather Max LEFKOWITZ who was living in Newark, NJ was buried in the Bayside Cemetery, in Queens, NY.

I am not sure what the current status of Bayside is. There was an effort (the last of many) maybe two years ago to clean it up. But unless they have done ongoing maintenance it would be useless.

The office was ransacked years ago and most of the onsite records lost ... I was actually there before it happened and even then the records were spotty.

I have not been to the cemetery in years and I am not sure what it hours are for visiting as I think they are limited. Also I am not sure it is the best of areas so I wold not go alone. My great grandfather is among the missing at Bayside which is a great personal frustration.

As for finding a grave there are several partial databases of Bayside burials. Check the JOWBR record here at JewishGen to start. Steve Lasky had some records but I don't know what his status is and he had the overall map of the cemetery http://www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/cp-maps-ny-nj.htm. You could try emailing him to see if he has the person in his records but make sure you give him the date of burial.

Like most cemeteries it is divided into mostly burial societies. You need to find the name of the society and its gate number.

The Jewish Theological Institute has the burial books and you can try emailing them and ask them to give you the data. My experiences with them were difficult and uncooperative.

Also try newspapers and see if you can find a notice for the person's burial because it might give the name of the society.

Without the society name and the gate number it is a nearly impossible search because of the size of the cemetery especially since you said you are looking for a singe grave.

There are two cemeteries bordering Bayside that are separate but in poor condition as well. A lot of people got confused with which of the three cemeteries a person was being buried in so it is not uncommon to find a record saying Bayside but the person is in one of the two adjoining cemeteries.

Wish there was more encouraging news to offer.

Re: DE BEER: Naming traditions #germany #names #sephardic

I partly agree with Eva.  My great-great-uncle Abraham Lob Beer, born in Moravia in 1858 has Beer in the birth register entry, but is indexed as Bär in the register index.  (I hope that the umlaut shows up).

Thus I read "Jakob bar Moscheh Bar" as Jakob son of Reb Moshe Bär"

I would also be interested in how Beer is written in the Hebrew script.  My Beer ancestors use bet ayin ayin reish.

nad Dneper info for Belarus? #belarus #general

brianna.knoppow@...
 

Hello,

I am searching for information on my family that hails from: "nad Dneper, Mogilev, Russia" / "Mogilow, Russia". JewishGen uses the name, "Mogilev-na-Dniepr." I used the JewishGen tools and typed in the given name (Briker) but could not find anything on my Briker relatives. I know from the ship manifests which relatives left Mogilow. I'd like to learn about their parents and siblings who were left behind.

I would also like to learn about Mogilow (Belarus) in general (1908). Any tips?

Employment in the old country? #general #belarus #romania #ukraine

brianna.knoppow@...
 

Hello, I am interested in learning about the types of employment opportunities available for Jews in the Pale of Settlement. I know that in some areas Jews were not permitted to serve as civil servants with the government. I don't think these restriction were homogeneous throughout the Pale of Settlement. I thought there are merchants and tavern keepers in some places as well. Is there a Wiki on Jewish employment opportunities by city? I know that I have relatives who were tailors and carpenters. I also had relatives who were Rabbis. I'm interested in mid-late 1800s and 1900 - WWII

For now I am looking at the following,

Mogilev-na-Dniepr, Belarus
Minsk
Kozelets, Ukraine
Yasi, Romania

Hi Sandy, I saw your post and noticed you're researching a Lerner family. I know it's a very common name, but I have been given material saying that my maternal gg gf Rabbi Yechiel Berenson from Ukraine had married a woman named Lerner, descended from Rabbi Menachem Mendel Lerner of an 8-generation line of rabbis in Kitaygorod, Ukraine. My DNA  matches  several proven descendants by that name. Does this make any sense to you? My Ancestry Public Tree is "ArostStaub_2019" and my email staubmolly@....  
Thanks, Molly

This is just a suggestion, but perhaps there was an unnoticed umlaut (two dots) over the a in bar. It would then be pronounced in the same way as Beer, and  the signature could be taken as: Jacob Beer Mosche Beer, i.e., Jacob son of Mosche.

The current hours for Bayside are Sundays from 9AM to 3PM and maybe Wednesdays from 8AM to 2PM.  It used to be possible to go from Acacia, which is open every day except Saturday to Bayside, but about two years ago a fence was built around Bayside, and that is no longer the case (unless you're very athletic and can climb the fence).  Although Bayside is in considerably better condition than it was five plus years ago, it's not in good condition overall; many areas are overgrown.  There are around 35,00 burials there, so you need to know which section your relative is in.  Even then, you will have to walk through an entire section, looking at each stone - with luck, that might take a half hour to an hour, but it's not possible to walk through the entire cemetery looking for a single marker.  (And many old markers are toppled or unreadable.)

The map on the museum of family history website comes in two pieces, at http://www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/Bayside%20Cemetery%20map,%20top%20.jpg and http://www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/Bayside%20Cemetery%20map,%20bottom.jpg.  You should print it and take a copy with you when you visit.  There's a security guard there, but he has no information to help anybody who is at the cemetery.

Re: Bayside cemetery Queens, NY #usa

Nana Redell
 

Thank you for all the replies. This was my very first post on the mailing list. I did find my Max in the list with the age he died, the day he was buried and the synagogue  he was a member of. It was Bnai Jacob which I believe is in Queens. I have to tell you that I have not read up on how the sponsoring society  determines the area of burial I don’t know if there was a headstone as he was the first on in the family to die and I have no idea what finances were. I can see it is pointless to try to send someone searching without this key info. 
Do you think that the synagogue  would have records? Before I received the death cert I had a librarian in Newark  search obits, death index and so forth  for Max and she found nothing. He did die in Beth Israel Hospital in Newark and was transported to the burial site in NY.
Can anyone verify this next statement? My mother told me that the reason Max was buried in what she referred to as Brooklyn was that religious rules or customs mandated he be buried across water from where the death took place. 
Just to be sure I called again and the phone has been disconnected.
This may be a dead end for a while. If anyone has suggestions or more ideas please let me know. Getting the death cert and at least having  a burial place was a big step forward for me. 
Sincerely,
Nana REDELL

Re: DE BEER: Naming traditions #germany #names #sephardic

deborah.shindell@...
 

I have done extensive research for my family tree with Jews in the Netherlands. I have been successful finding great records using this website: https://www.openarch.nl/search-ext.php?lang=en
It is a free website, and you don't need to signup or login in to use. I would suggest you use Jacob de Beer in the name to search on as I didn't find any Jacob Simon de Beer, but 86 pages of just Jacob de Beer, in various permutations. Then sort on date, to get the records in date order, but many early records were undated. You can filter by location, source, role (groom, father, registrant, etc). Especially if you know this man's partner's name, it can help you narrow down the results.

This website also includes Netherlands population registry information that was used to determine who was living where. If you don't find a birth record, you may be able to find the person in the population registry with an accurate birthdate, and the members of his household. This may help you find his correct parents and/or children.

Good luck.

About 3 years ago, I was able to get some Acacia burial location information from the person or people who are the staff for Bayside, Acacia & Mokom Sholom.  The person I spoke to was very nice and very helpful. The phone number (at that time) was 516-295-4350.
