May I offer a suggestion: 1211 names is not all that many. If technically
possible, I would allow the option of BROWSE access to the database, not
just search by a string.

BEFELER family in Paris? Lookup, please #general

MMBegun@...
 

Would one of our French colleagues kindly conduct a telephone book search for
me?

I would like to know if there are any families by the name of BEFELER listed
in Paris or nearby. If so, would you please e-mail me the addresses and
telephone numbers?

In searching for BEFELER relatives and their history in World War II, I have
so far determined which dates and on which transports the family members were
transported >from Paris. Auschwitz was the destination. I have had
confirmation >from the Paris agency Memorial Du Martyr Juif Inconnu that Berko,
the father, and Mayer, the younger son died later that year. I can only guess
that the mother, Alta, and the 10 year old daughter, Ewa, did not survive, but
I am still attempting to document their fate.

Now comes the startling news via a cousin in Costa Rica that he was told by a
business acquaintance of the existence in Paris of a Berel (aka Berko) BEFELER
. It is entirely possible that Yankiel BEFELER, the older son, survived,
returned to Paris, married and had a son named for his father.

If this is true, I would very much like to be in touch with this cousin. He
may not know of an extensive and wonderful family with branches in the US,
Costa Rica, Mexico and Israel.

Sincere thanks in advance for your help. Mila Begun in NYC, NY USA

Re: Searching for Burial Site of Morris NADANER #general

ellen graham <egraham@...>
 

My grandfather's youngest brother Morris NADANER died shortly after
emigrating to NY >from Warsaw. I don't have a date, only know that he
arrived in NY in 1913 at age 8. The family lived in Manhattan. I have
checked NY Vital records for all boroughs for the period 1913 through
1920 (am fairly sure he died in 1913 or 1914). The rest of the family is
buried in Baron Hirsch in S.I. in the plot belonging to Greater N.Y.
Sick and Benevolent Society. The next death in the family occurred in
1936 so it is possible that the family was not associated with the
Society at the time of Morris' death.

I am at a loss.... trying to locate the grave of Morris Nadaner or his
death certificate for about 10 years. I would really appreciate any
suggestions for where I can search, who I can write to etc.

Thank you.
