I have found every document available, but all I can find for place of birth is
Prussia for one of them and Bavaria for the other (Husband and wife).
The name is LOWENSTEIN, not uncommon.

During a certain period, Prussia (Preussen) as well as Bavaria (Bayern)
used to be independant states f.i. kingdoms). The indication that you have
of the places of birth therefor is very rough. Maybe in combination
with the actual period that you are referring to, one could draw some
conclusions. Think it's a difficult one.

Establishing date of death and place of burial #general

Stan Goodman <l_luciano@...>
 

I have, I think, exhausted all the possibilities available to me for
establishing the date (or even just the year) of the death of Herman
GOODMAN, who was listed in the 1920 US Census at 10 Littleton Avenue in
Newark NJ, having immigrated to the US in 1900 and been naturalized in
1906.

I need the date of death in order to apply for a death certificate >from the
NJ autorities, and I need this in order to find his place of burial. All
this is necessary in order to locate his headstone, which I wish to have
photographed.

There is an index of local names that appeared in the now defunct Newark
Evening News, in which I had hoped to find an obituary, but I have found
that this is an unpublished, handwritten document available for viewing
only at the Newark Public Library, which I am unable to visit; the library
gets $75/hour for doing research of this sort, which is stiff for me,
certainly as an open-ended proposition.

If anyone can suggest a feasible path for me to follow >from this distance,
or is in a position to supply the needed date >from any source of which I
have not thought, I would be very grateful.

Re: Ancestors in Lumber Business #general

David R. Brill <dbrill@...>
 

Let me add my name to the long list of JewishGenners whose ancestors
participated in the "lumber business" in Belarus. My great-grandfather
Avraham Hersh BRILL lived in Vitebsk Guberniya (Usviaty), where his (fairly
profitable) business was lumber. What did it involve? Based on what I've
read (in this forum and elsewhere) it seems likely that his function was
that of a middleman - purchasing specific stands of timber (>from whom?) and
reselling them at a profit to logging companies. Perhaps, like Irene
Newhouse's grandfather and great-grandfather, he was also a broker. I
understand that the timber >from this area, once harvested, was sent down
this Dvina River to the port of Riga. (My grandfather, who lived in
Vitebsk guberniya as a boy, recalled this detail.)

David Goldman wrote:
Let no one think that Jews have a tradition of being lumberjacks!! I am

If they were in a position to do so, they probably did hire others to
actually cut the timber. That's business. In general, however, Jews did
not disdain physical labor involving wood. Most of the men in my family,
the BRILL's, were skilled carpenters by trade. I don't know, but I would
guess, that my great-grandfather had been trained as a carpenter before
getting into the "lumber business" later in life.

If my memory serves me well, one chapter of the book "Landscape and Memory"
by cultural scholar Simon Schama contains an interesting description of the
Jewish lumber business in Lithuania and Belarus.
