Listed as the occupation for my great-grandfather on a 1907 New York

shows that my great-grandfather had various jobs in the garment
industry including tailor and presser. I would appreciate help in
identifying the term.

Thank you,

Correction to link (European Union) European Jewish Cemeteries Initiative Launches New Website With Surveys of 1500 Jewish Cemeteries #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Yesterday, I posted a blurb about the new European Jewish Cemeteries
Initiative new website and I guess the link >from the earlier posting about
My Heritage did not clear and spell check did not pick it up, and it was
included rather than the correct ESJF website link. That link is
https://www.esjf-surveys.org/

The ESJF has mapped 1500 cemeteries in 5 countries: Greece, Lithuania,
Moldova, Slovakia and the Ukraine.

As each cemetery is completed and processed aerial photographs, historical
data and geographical data will be uploaded to the website. This is a work
in progress.

As previously reported, the European Union provided 800,000 Euros for the
project. The ESJF started work in 2015 by surveying and fencing Jewish
cemeteries to protect them >from destruction. With the EU grant, it has
expanded its mission using drone technology and historical research to map
the 1500 Jewish cemetery sites in the 5 aforementioned countries. To read
more about the ESJF see: https://www.esjf-surveys.org/about-us/

Thank you to Amy Wachs, JGS Cleveland for pointing out the error

Re: Jonas/Yonah Steinberger - town name update #general

Dovie Gelerinter
 

I recently posted the post below, but just went through some old
correspondence and learned that David Steinberger - Jonas' son - my
great-grandfather - was born in Paszto, Hungary. Hopefully, that will
help.

Dovie Gelerinter

So, I just unlocked another half level of finding names going back by
finding my great-grandfather's death certificate which had his
father's name on it - Jonas Steinberger. This sort of jives with an
older reference I had (non-official) that his name was Yonah.

I know my great-grandfather was born in 1877, to give a point of
reference. Unfortunately, I don't really know much more about this
branch of the tree. Thus, I've been trying to find any records and
connections going back up this line.

However, I'm unsure of where I can go to search any records of
Austria-Hungary to try to learn more. I'm used to searching Polish
records and using JRI-Poland, but the relevant link on the SIGs page
doesn't seem to have that functionality.

Where in Austria/Hungary? Impossible to help unless you provide more specific
info. Could be Galicia, Austria, pre-Trianon Hungary, Moravia, etc. etc. Where
was your GGrandfather born?

(Belarus) Remains of Over 1,000 Holocaust Victims Laid to Rest #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

As reported last month a Brest, Belarus, building site yielded bones of
1,214 Holocaust victims. Construction workers who had been working on
foundations for a new apartment building along with soldiers pulled human
skeletons >from the earth. Over the three months since this excavation of
bodies began the bones of 1,214 people, are thought to be Jews slaughtered
by the Nazis, when Hitler invaded Russia. At the time Belarus was part of
Russia.

On May 22, the victims were buried in Belarus. The site of the mass grave
was on the site of wartime ghetto, and therefore the victims were believed
to be Jews slaughtered by the Nazis. The remains were placed into 120
coffins, and the burial and ceremony was held at a cemetery outside of the
city. Authorities were in a rush to do the burial rather than do DNA testing
to discern who the victims were.

The city was criticized for not carefully examining the land before the
building permit was issued.

According to the World Jewish Congress before the war the city had a vibrant
Jewish population of which 90 percent was killed by the end of the Holocaust.

Travel to Canada circa 1905 #general

My grandmother traveled with three young children circa 1905 to Halifax and
then to Montreal. She left >from Kishinev and departed by ship >from Germany
to Liverpool, then to Halifax.

I am curious to get a sense as to how long it typically took for such a trip.
How many countries and languages were part of her experience? And ballpark
estimate of cost in today's dollars

Thanks
