It appears to represent Ellis Island Registry. I know there was a “Registry Room” but I don’t know what book it references.

Re: Anyone visiting Mount Lebanon Cemetery in Glendale, Queens, NY? #usa

Peter Cohen
 

Gravesite locations at Mount Lebanon can be found using this tool:
https://www.mountlebanoncemetery.com/search/

While posting a photo request on findagrave has a pretty good response rate, the New York City cemeteries all have thousands of pending requests. The chance of getting a photo that way are slim, and without providing the graveside location, chances are zero.

I agree that the family changed their names, maybe to wife’s maiden name and remarried. Her husband may have agreed to a divorce and a get. In any event, if the descendants know more than what is printed, they are unlikely to cooperate and bring up their shameful past.

Are those gravestones proof my ancestors were jewish? #germany

philthomsen202@...
 

Since my childhood my dad always told me we had jewish ancestors somewhere in history. Last month i took a closer look to the graves of my grandfather / grandmother and great grandfather / grandmother. I noticed that the birth stars had the shape of a Magen David. Does this mean they were jewish or is it meaningless for genealogic purposes? My father didn‘t know they were jewish, he just knew about the general heritage of our family from a jewish background.

Suggestions:
1.  When requesting photos, provide the names of the relatives in the request and the grave locations.  

2.  Check on Findagrave,com and BillionGraves.com first before asking.  

3.  Join Findagrave.com (free) and you can then post a photo request ; be sure to add the grave location for the photographer). In some cases a burial may have to be added first so a photo request can be entered.  There are many volunteers (all religious affiliations) who respond to photo requests both on findagrave and BillionGraves.  Sometime request are fulfilled rapidly and sometimes (alas) not so rapidly.

Good luck!

Jewish Cemeteries in Jamaica #sephardic

contact@...
 

On Sephardic World this Sunday, the Jamaican Jewish Cemeteries Preservation Fund (JJCPF) are launching their database of Jewish burial grounds. Extensive cataloguing of the Jewish burial sites across the island took place from 2008 to 2017. 33 Jewish burial locations were recorded, which includes synagogue purchased cemeteries, family burial grounds, those that were sold and no longer exist, and plot markers which were part of an interment ground that is now on residential property. Rachel Frankel and Joseph de Leon will discuss this important project, which helps fill a gap in our knowledge, as well as the need to preserve these historic Jewish sites.

 

Rachel Frankel is principal of the firm Rachel Frankel Architecture. The practice is located in New York City and best known for its contextual new buildings, sustainable alterations, and historic restorations. She is the co-author of Remnant Stones: The Jewish Cemeteries of Suriname. Frankel served in the Peace Corps in Togo, west Africa. Her Master in Architecture is from Harvard University's Graduate School of Design and her Bachelor of Arts is from Duke University.

 

Joseph de Leon is a Jamaican Jewish descendant, and the current President of the Jamaican Jewish Cemeteries Preservation Fund. He is retired from a senior management position at Con Edison of New York, Inc. He enjoys various pursuits and spending time with his grandchildren. He has a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics, and a Masters degree in Business.

 

The meeting is on 12 December 2021, at 11am in LA, 2pm NYC, 7pm London, 8pm Paris/Amsterdam and 9pm Jerusalem. Everyone is invited to join us for free at: https://www.youtube.com/SephardicGenealogyAndHistory/ Please subscribe to the YouTube channel. It helps us a lot and reminds you when we are going live!

 

Best wishes,

Looking for Tisch Family in Demend, Hungary #hungary

aidantisch@...
 

Hi all,
 
I’ve had a substantial brick wall in my research for quite awhile now, and was wondering if anyone could could help me. I’m looking for the ancestors/relatives of Herman Tisch.
 
Herman/Ármin Tisch was born in Demend, Hont County, Austro-Hungary, on February 23, 1863. He was the son of Lajos/Lazar(Leyzer) Tisch(b. ? , d. Before 1895) and Mina Cohen/Kohn(b. ~1837, d. 09/16/1920). Herman had 3 known siblings, Mária Rosenfeld(b. ~1870, Tisch, d. ?), Arnold/Arnó Tisch(b. 04/15/1871, d. 03/15/1956), and Regina Szigeti(b. 11/15/1868, Tisch, d. 01/16/1938). 
 
Herman married Hermina Berger(b. 10/16/1874, Losce, Szepes County, Austro-Hungary, d. 02/10/1952) on 05/24/1896 in the city of Locse. 
 
Herman immigrated to the US(through Ellis Island) on 07/05/1902. He traveled under the name Hermann Fisch. After his arrival, he and Hermina settled in Manhattan.
 
The pair had three children, Emanuel Tisch(b. 04/22/1904, d. 03/02/1984), Leonard Tisch(b. 09/10/1907, d. 07/19/1994), and Frank Tisch(b. 09/16/1910, d. 07/24/1992). 
 
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Aidan Tisch

A cousin of mine was convicted of a notorious crime in 1930 and sent to Sing Sing.
His family soon changed their surname, I assume to distance themselves from the news and enable the sister to get married. I was fortunate to stumble on a record that revealed the name change.
