New Rochelle NY Help needed #general

Morton & Esther Cohen <cohe176@...>
 

Near the grave of my grandfather Max RABINOWITZ in MT Zion Cemetery is
the grave of a Dora RABINOWITZ who was buried Feb 1914 (Anshie Ponidel
Tract). Based on the 1900 Census, there may be a family connection. The
burial society records for that time period are no longer in existence.

Information I have is that until 1981 the maintenence charges for Dora
RABINOWITZ were paid by a Dorothy R. ROMM of New Rochelle NY >from the
estate of Adele RABIN. I am hoping to locate MS ROMM or members of her
family who might provide info about RABIN/RABINOWITZ family connections.

Problem with Polish Genealogist #poland

Thekla1
 

I found the name of a person who advertises himself as a Polish Genealogist.
Because I knew of no one else to ask, I requested that he research my last
name. Several weeks later he e-mailed me that he had done the research,had
spent over 20 hours, and had information which he would send to me after he received my check for $650.00. Although I thought it was a lot, the
information was so valuable to us that I sent him the check. What I received in return was about what I could find on the Internet. I was very sad about this and felt that in my search to find family who had survived, we had been taken advantage of. Since then I have learned that others have had the same experience with this person -- Pawel B. Dorman.I hope that this message can protect someone else >from making the same expensive mistake.

Re: SATTLER #general

Ellen,

My mother was very friendly with a Sattler family in Brooklyn, NY. William
Sattler died about 30 years ago. I believe he had a sister who died before
him. I don't know anything about their background. They were definitly
Jewish.

William's window and daughter live in the New York area. If you think they
may be related, I will try to contact them for you.

Gorodeya #general

I tried to contact Issie Fine at the email address noted on the posting,
but only got a Mailer Demon in return...In any event this is what I sent
him:
Dear Issie Fine....
Your lucky day....or should I say this is one FINE day for you...
_Gorodeya is very close to _Nesvizh_... _Nesvizh_ was the center of Jewish
life for people in that area. My Family, on both sides, maternally, was
from that area. My GrandMother's family was >from Gorodeya. They all
gravitated to Nesvizh for school, shul and other "stuff". I suggest
that you search the NESVIZH SHTETL Website..........
<http://www1.jewishgen.org/shtetlinks/nesvizh/nesvizh.html>. Especially
the New York Cemetery listings that you'll find on the site. You will
find some FINE's in most of the cemetery listings. You might even
consider joining our little SIG. No cost, no obligation...just
information sharing and some friendly chatter >from time to time.
