Where were Jewish people in West Kirby buried? #unitedkingdom #general

Nettie Edwards
 

My 2 x great grandfather Morris Jacubs died on 11 May 1922, at 84 Banks Road, West Kirby, Cheshire England. I’ve read the pages about burial grounds, here on JewishGen but still can not locate Morris’s place of rest. Following his death, his second wife and their three children moved down to London. His first wife was not Jewish and will have been buried in Liverpool but I have not found a record of it.
Morris’s death was announced in the Jewish Chronicle 26 May 1922
Any thoughts on where Jewish residents of West Kirby might have been buried will be gratefully received.
with thanks, Nettie Edwards

RE: GREIF, Samu and Cili and family

I have an image of the 1869 HU/SK census and need help in understanding a few words.  The attached jpeg has been snipped from LDS film 720011, img 618.
I would like to know what is written under Cili's name and under Herman's name.  Furthermore I would like to know what is written in the last two columns shown.

Thank you

Re: Hebrew Translation to English needed from marriage document #records

This is a standard Jewish marriage document ('ketuba'), where all the important information is in the handwritten text only.
However, the quality of the photo is not very good, making it very difficult to read.  Perhaps I could guess some of the information if I made an effort, but I wouldn't be sure.  I think others would agree with me.
I suggest that you scan the document so that the handwriting becomes more legible.  If you can't scan, at least take a better picture of the handwritten areas (more close up) - even if you have to take a series of pictures to cover the entire handwritten areas.

I second Ittai's recommendation to visit the church - certainly not your typical Anglican church. :)  There is usually someone around who will be able to tell you a bit about it, if you like.  Also there is a museum and good sit-down pastry shop with cakes, coffee and the like.

No, the Hungarian Jewish records start in 1840's only. There could be very few exceptions that have years 1830's available, but definitely not Ulics.

Re: Looking for translation of fathers' names on headstones for Faya (Fanny) Dann & Rose Fidler #translation

Dubin, David M. MD
 

Faya daughter of Aharon (=Aaron) Zvi
rachel dtr of Avraham (=Abraham)

both stones, as usual, begin and end with abbreviations of “here lies” and “may her soul be bound in the bonds of (everlasting) life”. The Jewish date of death follows the names, also as usual.

Re: Translation of Video Narration from Czech #translation #austria-czech

Susan Lauscher
 

The Sonix service was very easy to use and was very fast. it took about 3 minutes to produce a Czech transcription of the narration, and then another 2 minutes to do the Czech to English translation, so it was all free.  Amazing! Unfortunately, the translation doesn't make a whole lot of sense.  I can spot some mistakes, but in most cases, I don't really know what is being talked about.  It's actually quite funny in spots ("Dr. Mongolian" shows up several times.)  I wonder whether the "errors" are in the translation or the transcription of what was heard.  

Thanks for suggesting it.

Hebrew Translation to English needed from marriage document #records

Rhoda Mastronardi
 

I have a marriage document from my grandfather and grandmother. It's in hebrew I think. I cannot read it. I am hoping there is information about their parents on it? My grandfather was Isidore Pawley from Kiev, Russia. My grandmother was Lillian Dates. I believe they were married May 21, 1929. It's a long document I know. I would be very appreciative if someone would translate it for me. Or at least give the important details. Thank you!

Searching for connections to surname HOLZAPFEL #names

holsoppj@...
 

I am searching for connections to the surname HOLZAPFEL or the city/county of Holzappel.

 

Since 2004 I have been leading student trips to Lithuania where I collaborate with a university in Klaipeda. We visit Ponar, IX Fort and the ghettos in Kaunas and Vilnius.  I have visited with students who lost grandparents at these places and with students whose family members collaborated with the Nazi program. On the last trip a student whose grandfather was Litvak connected with some of her heritage. Every student is impacted at some level.

 

On my last trip to the Riga Ghetto, I was scanning names when I discovered three HOLZAPFEL’s and then two more. This is an unusual surname, so I was surprised to find my surname on the lists. When I returned home I discovered many more on JewishGen and lists at various of the Holocaust sites.  All of this was totally new for me.

 

My family came to the USA, many generations ago, but their history in

Germany seems unclear with a variety of competing stories.

 

I have no idea where this might lead, but I am seeking to see if there are connections to be made.

Re: Jewish Converts Institution in London / Conversion records #unitedkingdom #records

Ittai Hershman
 

Further to Caroline's more direct response to your query, the whole history of the LSPCJ has in recent years been written about by the historian David Ruderman.  I highly recommend his 2020 book "Missionaries, Converts, and Rabbis" and you can find lectures by him on the topic (I attended an early such lecture in 2015, but I see that a 2020 version was sponsored by the National Library of Israel and is on their YouTube channel).

Around the time I became aware of this history, In London, I stumbled on the memorial plaques for those involved in the LSPCJ at the restored Christ Church Spitalfields that had been relocated from Palestine Place.  Spitalfields was part of the Jewish East End of London.  If anyone is interested, I photographed these memorial plaques which can be seen here: https://goo.gl/photos/LdHZkXGoSNZoNQP4A

Finally, Orit, as you are in Israel, if you are not aware, literally across the street from the entrance to Migdal David in the old city of Jerusalem, is the oldest Anglican church in the Middle East.  It was built expressly for the purpose of proselytizing Jews, and was headed by a Jew who converted in London, Bishop Michael Solomon Alexander.  מאוד כדאי לבקר.  Here is a photograph of the alter that I took when I visited over Chanukka a month ago.

Re: Translation of Video Narration from Czech #translation #austria-czech

lea.hayek@...
 

I can help you because I am originaly from Prague. The video talks about the cemetery in Drmoul. The Jewish community dates back to 1655. It is near Marienbad = Mariánské Lazně and not far from  town Jáchymov which is famous of uranium mines (Mariánka). The communist used political prisoners to work in the mines. There are still the towers and buidings of the communist camp. The cemetery wasnt originaly in the wood. He says: the trees came near to the cemetery. There used to be abot 600 matzevot  - 23 rows with 30 matzevot. Today there are only 290. What didnt do troops of Henleins,  did the communists.He talks about the meaning of the name Drmoul. Is it from old- Czech trmal or German duerrmal? In the years 2000 to 2002 a group of German volunteers helped to restore the cemetery and now the near village Drmoul cares about it.
History of the Jewish community. The vilage Duerrmaul is mentioned in charts about  1366 - 1368. There was a farmhouse Herrenberg = Pansky vrch. And monastery Teplá. 
The oldest matzeva was from 1673 (before the cemetery was demaged).
1848 the Jews were allowed to settle down also in Marianske Lazne.
I hope it will help you!
