Sorry the dotted letters only add up to 301. No idea what that signifies. Sorry.

Re: Hebrew translation on gravestone #translation

Dubin, David M. MD
 

Shaindee daughter of mr Chaim Baruch
died 21 Shevat (5)711

four letters have dots over them. Bear with me. 
The Hebrew year was 5711, but the thousands place is usually omitted as it is here. Hebrew numbers take letters of the alphabet (the first ten letters signify 1-10, the next nine letters signify the tens from 20-100, and the last three letters signify 200, 300 and 400). Numbers 500 and up require several of the “hundreds letters”, so that 700 is written 400-300, and 900 is 400-400-100.
the dotted letters on this stone add up to 311, knocking off the thousands place and the first of the “hundreds letters” (400), leaving 311.  There must be a mystical reason for such things, as it is commonly done, but I don’t know the reason.

I take it back. The four dotted letters add up to 301. I’m stumped.

Where candlesticks are from #general

Richard Sperber
 

An article by Ann Rabinowitz in this week’s JewishGen newsletter encouraged me to post the photo below of the candlesticks I inherited from my grandparents and ask if anybody can confirm that they were brought over from Europe as we’ve been told and, if so, from what region they might have come from.

 

If made in Europe, they would most likely come from either the L’wow area in Galicia, the Belarussian part of Grodno Gubernia, or the Chelm/Wlodawa region in Eastern Poland.

 

 

Thanks for your help!

Re: Marriage in London #unitedkingdom #general

I know that this won't help you, but I had to reply since this is SO coincidental to my family.  Was SO excited when you started out with Emmanuel Abrahams, born Russia.

My gr-gr grandfather was Emanuel Abrahams, born Oct 1860 in Russia and married to Leah Pauline Horowitz born about May 1860 in Russia.  They would have married about 1878 or 1879 in England - but I haven't bee able to find a marriage record for them, or when they came to England.  Their first child was Betsy, born 25 Nov 1880 in Whitechapel - I have her birth record.  My gr-grandfather Max was born 1881 in England - but I can't find his birth record.  I have the birth records (in England) for two subsequent children.

Emanuel's Hebrew name was Peres Menachen bar Yechiel.  Max's name was Yechiel Mordechai bar Peres Mendel (Mendel as you said Yiddish for Menachen).   Leah Pauline was Perel Leah bat Aron Moshe.   They all died in NYC.

So close yet so far away.

Karesz Vandor is indeed a fine genealogist. So is Andras Koltai (also based in Budapest).

Re: Help in explaining an inconsistency #usa #records

I am guessing that the 'died in Aug 1985' is for her SPOUSE and when she started collecting on his account.  The April 1992 date is most likely her actual death date.

This happened with my cousins grandmother.  Her spouse died in 1965, and she started collecting on his account.  Yet, I was finding the 1965 death date for her WHILE SHE WAS STILL ALIVE.

I would also try to get the death certificate, though sometimes you have to give the state or local authorities the date of death, which in this case could be one or the other. Also, if you are not a direct descendent of this woman, there may be difficulties getting the certificate, but it is worth trying.

I would think that the California index is the correct one, since it actually has a set date, as opposed to only the month for the Social Sec. entry.  The CA death index would have been based on her death certificate sent into the state vital records office. The Social Security record would have been based on when this US federal agency was informed of her death. When my father passed away in 2009, it was the funeral director who notified Social Security. But he also warned us that sometimes the clerks there don't properly record a death, and that if we kept getting my father's monthly payment checks, then we needed to notify the agency again. 

There's also trying to find her gravestone, but I imagine you have already done that.

I also recommend Karesz Vandor.
But I am curious about what you are referring to when you say "the infamous death march of Hungarian Jews in WWII." There were many death marches that included Hungarian Jews (eg. in the fall of 1944, well after the countryside had been emptied of Jews, large numbers of the remaining Jews of Budapest were marched to Austria (to Mauthausen) and various other camps from there; or when Auschwitz was being emptied before the arrival of the Soviet army, etc. (not to mention other death marches between concentration and death camps in Germany in the last few months of the war...)

Re: What Happened to Leopold Hoschander? A Mystery #poland

mab@...
 

AJ - 

You wrote, "The SSDI records his death in Moroni, Comoros in November 1971."  The SSDI does not list the place of death.

Looking at the SSDI on Ancestry.com, I see that his last residence is given as Moroni, Comoros. However, looking at the SSDI on familysearch.org, it gives his residence place as Europe.

Of course, this all only adds to the confusion over where he died.

Looking to trace family in Meppel #records

Lynn Weisberg
 

Someone put on Ancestry.com that SALOMON MORGENSTERN was born in 1805 in Meppel, Drenthe, Netherlands and his son ISRAEL ( Yisrael Tzvi ) was born there in 1826. There are no records online documenting that they lived there before immigrating to Ukraine and then Austria. I need proof please or possibly a Dutch researcher.
