Re: JewishGen JOWBR - Broken Image Link #usa #photographs

Brian Kerr
 

I asked this question via email quite some time ago (regarding another individual in my family tree) and I was told that there's no image and the link is a type of placeholder for one. If an image becomes available, they will label it that reflects the same jpg name and it will be viewable.

Besides that, I had gave something a shot and performed a search for the Phonetic Surname "Lehman" and Any Field "Cheektowaga".

The results provided the following list of those with the Surname Lehman and the Exact Location of their Burials within the same Temple Beth Zion Cemetery in Cheektowaga, New York.

Lena Lehman - Section 79 | Plot: 02 Joseph Lehman - Section 79 | Plot: 03 Lillian (Infant) Lehman - Section 79 | Plot: 07 Hennrietta Lehman - Section 79 | Plot: 09 Meyer Lehman - Section 79 | Plot: 10

I do hope that this was helpful in some way. :-))

Re: Help with 1910 census, building never enumerated. #usa

Steven
 

Thank you for your reply, Lee, I got the address from the 1909 city directory, although, when I went back and checked just now, I read 4116. Not sure if 4110 was a typo or just my eyes not what they used to be. However, thee still wasn’t a 4116 Woodland enumerated in the 1910 census. 
 
My apologies,
Steve
 
Steven,
Where did you originally get the address in question as being 4110 Woodland? Checking the 1912  and 1927 Sanborn Fire Insurance maps it seems there was no 4110 address assigned. The numbers jump from 4106/8 to 4112 on both. The address numbering system changed sometime around 1906, I believe and at that time the location was in the 800s.  Can you find your person in the city directories to confirm?

Re: Help deciphering a ship manifest #records

It looks like he is from Skulak.

The numbers are his intent to naturalize and represent the certificate of arrival when they found his passenger manifest as it was dated 1941 he was probably naturalized 3 or 4 years later in the NYC area. He needed to find the manifest page in order to proceed with the naturalization petition.

It also looks like an X is to the left of his name
Which means he is either on a detained manifest or special inquiry page and you can check those as they are either in the front or the back of the regular manifest pages and you can look to see if you find him there.

Hope this helps.

Hello,
I wonder if anyone can help decipher the residence place for Wolf Cohen, line 16 on this manifest. There are at least two other names with the same town.
I also am curious to know if the notation above his name is for him or for the preceding passenger.  And what does it mean?   1-A-3584-(505?) 10/20/41.  Social security perhaps?  Something to do with WWI?

Hi Judy,

I wonder if this 1906 manifest could be your Cheyka SILVERMAN?  Age matches.  She is married, and going to Montreal to her husband (no name for the husband given.)  The departure port is Liverpool.

The husband is a tailor by occupation.  This is the first manifest that I've ever seen that lists the occupation of the person that the immigrant is bound for.  First time for everything!  LOL

Chaike Zelberman arrived Feb. 1906, so she had plenty of time to give birth in Montreal in 1906.

Info found at  Ancestry.com  You can see the actual manifest page there.
Name: Chaike Zelberman
Gender: Female
Arrival Age: 20
Birth Year: abt 1886
Departure Port: Liverpool, England
Arrival Date: 10 Feb 1906
Arrival Port: Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada and Portland, Maine, USA
Vessel: Dominion
Good luck in your search,

Thanks for these suggestions.

I have checked FindAGrave and Billion Graves and this grave is not on there.

I've searched for the cemetery online and have not found a website or phone number. It appears to be an old cemetery that is no longer in use.

Re: Dolgoselia, 8 miles from Olevsk #ukraine

csicher@...
 

Thank you, Sherri. Igor Holyboroda, an expert living in Ukraine, tells me that despite JewishGen's "populated place," Dolgosel'ye doesn't exist as a separate entity. It seems to have been absorbed by Kam'yanka. My hunch is that it was--and perhaps still is--a place to its inhabitants but was never an administratively recognized place.

Hi, 

I am currently researching a branch of my Lehman[n] family that lived in Buffalo, New York. Searching on JewishGen, I found a burial record for Meyer Lehman, who died in April 1887 and is buried in Temple Beth Zion Cemetery in Cheektowaga, NY near Buffalo. There is a link to an image of the grave (link: http://data.jewishgen.org/imagedata/jowbr/USA-10006/Sec79-10_LehmanMeyer.jpg), but the link is broken and does not connect me with an image of the grave. I have requested JewishGen to fix the broken link, but it's been more than a month since I sent out my request and I have not heard back a response. 

Is there any way for me to view a photo of this grave? Seeing a photo of Meyer Lehman's grave should help me with solving a mystery related to this family. Unlike Meyer Lehman's descendants whose graves are entirely in English, I believe it is likely his grave contains Hebrew letters and will provide important details as to his ancestry, which will be helpful with connecting him to other branches of the Lehman[n] family. 

Thank you for any help you can provide!

Seeking descendants of Dora KELLER and Hersch Harry David BRUDER #usa

David T Kim
 

Good morning, 

I am looking for descendants of Dora Hanna KELLER, born 10/7/1887 in Manhattan and Hersch Harry David BRUDER born 8/13/1885 in Regietow, Poland about 40 miles from Dukla.  Hersch was the son of Josef BRUDER and Gitel BERG.   Dora was the daughter of Naftali Nathan KELLER from Iwla (about 3 miles from Dukla) and Sala/Sara/Celia BRUDER who I believe was a sister of Hersch Harry David’s father Josef.  After Dora’s father Naftali/Nathan returned to Austria, her mother remained in NY and married William SCHWARTZ, a musician.  Some of Dora’s documents list William as her father.  Dora and Hersch Harry David had 2 children Raymond Joseph BRUDER born 5/23/1918 in New York City and Melvin Frederick BRUDER born 5/27/1921 in New Brunswick NJ.  I believe both children graduated from the PA State College of Optometry. Raymond married Florence BLITZER and they had at least one child, Sheryl D. BRUDER.  Melvin married Ruth ROSENDORF.

I am a direct descendant of the KELLER family from Iwla.  My 2nd GGM, Gitla, was Naftali KELLER’S sister.  She married Mendel BRUDER from Glojsce (about 4 miles from Dukla) so I am likely connected to both Dora and Hersch Harry David.  Any information on descendants of this family would be greatly appreciated!

Required evidence to prove a death in 1946 Warsaw court #holocaust #poland #warsaw

GEORGE KE8TSL
 

My father's uncle and aunt reportedly died in Warsaw Ghetto in August of 1942. In 1946, the Administrative Secretary for the Uncle's pre-war business presented the court in Warsaw with hand-written Last Wills and Testaments for my father's uncle and aunt. She stated that they died in the Ghetto and they left her their villa in Konstancin. My question is this: in Warsaw in 1946, what requirements were in place in the Polish version of Probate Court for confirming that someone had died during the war and occupation? What evidence would have been required? Would the court have taken witness testimony? Would more than one witness be required to confirm a death? Where would the record of such testimony be found? I have typed copies of the supposed hand-written Wills but I have not found any transcript of the actual court proceeding - if there was one - where a magistrate summarizes what evidence has been presented, declares the uncle and aunt legally dead, and authorizes the distribution of their properties as indicated in their Wills. Does anyone here have knowledge of early post-war probate court inheritance procedures in Warsaw?
Many thanks,
