Hello Reinier

Not very helpful but nevertheless...

I took a look at the manifest arriving from Brussels - this was not a ship but a SABENA flight arriving in La Guardia Airport in NY.
According to this record he held a Polish passport, not a Belgian one. See attached.

There is a link in the USHM: https://www.ushmm.org/online/hsv/source_view.php?SourceId=31011 (List of children at Children's Home Wesembeck-Ophem [sic], 200 Choe de Malines / submitted by the World Jewish Congress, 1835 Broadway, (ID: 31011)). Maybe you can see if the World Jewish Congress has any records of adoptions.

Good luck on your search,

Re: Miami, FL - defunct Jewish funeral home - where are the records? #general #usa #records

If you added the name of the deceased and the name of the son who disinterred him along with the son's place of residence in 1963 it might strike a chord with someone.

Hello

My relative died in Miami in 1962 while vacationing; his son disinterred him in 1963 to transfer him elsewhere (this was confirmed by Mount Nebo Miami cemetery staff)- nobody knows to where. The funeral home, per his death certificate, was Gordon Funeral Home and they've been defunct for some decades. I was in touch with a sales person for the Mt Nebo - Kendall cemetery there there but they did not inherit any records from the old place. Would someone know where the records are? I read a similar post here the other day about a different defunct funeral home that stated that the records went to the Jewish Society of that state or county. Would it be the same for Florida? Can anyone direct me please?

There is only one grand daughter alive but she does not know where he is buried. His brother is buried in the Zhashkower Society in Mt. Hebron Cemetery in Queens but he himself is not there.

I already checked Find a grave, Billiongraves, asked at his son's cemetery in Roxbury, Massachusetts and around Spring Valley, NY, where my relative lived. I also sent an email to Division of Funeral, Cemetery,and Consumer Services in Florida but they don't keep such old records.

Thank you in advance,

Israeli filmmaker Larry Price produced a film, “Hitler’s Jewish Soldiers,” a few years ago, described as “the original and in-depth 59-minute documentary about the 150,000 men of Jewish origin who served in the Warmacht, the German Army, during WWII.” More at https://vimeo.com/ondemand/hitlersjewishsoldiers

Re: German Jews who served the Third Reich #germany #general

I believe this was the case for my great-uncle as well. He was from Berlin: his mother was Jewish but father was likely Catholic. I know that he survived as there are documents in his name from West Germany in the mid-1980's, however I've never been able to track him down beyond those brief and dead-end records. He was conscripted in 1944, when the regime was at its most desperate.

I have read the book, but wish it was a bit easier to research this stuff online. Maybe it will be for my children, at least...?

I had the same problem with the managers not answering. Then, I discovered that the information for two Leopold Deutsch were mixed together in what they put on Geni. So, I’ve disconnected my tree from the incorrect Leopold Deutsch and all his ancestors. I have documentation for the correct one.

The three "researchers" listed as managers of this tree are notorious for harvesting records and not bothering to include sources. Your best bet is to identify most-recent common ancestor and do your own research.  I am connected to Anna through marriage between my great-grandmother's brother-in-law who was a SINGER. The SPITZ and POLACSEK families found in this tree arrived in Hungary from Moravia in the early 18th century.

Re: New Look at the Question of Sephardic and Ashkenazic Genetics #sephardic #dna

Adam Cherson
 

No doubt. Preliminary findings are what may lead to conclusions of interest, no? The determination of Sephrdic is multi-factorial: ancestral geography, langauge, culture, names, religious practices, and needs to be established on a case by case basis. There is no single criterium I can give you. Self-identification as Sephardic is a good place to begin.

Could be Bassie (my grandmother’s sister's name, in Galicia). Or how about Rivka aka Rebecca (which could have been changed to Beckie but possibly also to Bessie). Or Blume (my grandmother’s name in Latvia, which she changed to Beckie). Or any other Yiddish name with a B (Brocha, Breine, Bayla ) -  Bessie seems to have been a common choice in America.
