Only need the full names for each party, parents? names, city, date and year
and any other pertinent information for each individual.

I could identify only one Jewish own business: R. Ginzberg, owner of the food

Re: Tracking Angel JOSEPH after his arrival in NY #general

Barbara Zimmer
 

Dear Genners,
A recent inquiry about Angel JOSEPH by Annick M led me to find Angel's wife Lena
and daughter Ida (later Irene) who were both born in Woodbine New Jersey, one of
the settlements established by Baron de Hirsch as a haven for Eastern European
Jews. Lena Joseph was born as GROSSMAN. She and Ida traveled to England in 1919
when Ida was just a few months old, to visit Angel's family. By 1930 Lena was an
inmate at a New Jersey State Hospital in Trenton NJ, and Ida (now Irene) was
living with her grandparents.

Meanwhile, Angel Joseph had previously been in the US, as indicated by the
manifest when he arrived in NY in 1921. He said he had lived in New York >from
1914 to 1920. I managed to find him entering the US in 1915, headed to an uncle
in Manhattan, and in the World War I draft registration lists. Using his date of
birth, I was able to find him registered for the World War II draft as **Harry
Joseph. He and Lena had two children - Irene and Milford. According to a family
tree on line, Harry and his son Milford both died in New York with no dates given
for their deaths.

Kitty lived in Westbury Avenue London N.22 and we know that is in the district
of Haringey according to her death cert. index.

I found an Edward BROOKES with his wife Gladys living in Russell Avenue London
N.22 - went to the English street directory and the roads are 2 away >from each
other - thus I am taking it that the said Edward BROOKES son of Kitty lived
down the road to her.

Edward BROOKES married in 1948 a Gladys HOLDER, in the area of Wood Green
and in 1954 they had a daughter called Kay. A Kay BROOKES married in 1975
in Haringey a John E LYONS.

An Edward BROOKES b. 1913 d.1991 in Enfield Middx. and a Gladys BROOKES b.
1918 d 2001 in Enfield - which is around the same area as Wood Green.
Remember these Borough/areas changed their boundaries quite often.

Kay was born in Edmonton, Middlesex

Does anyone know of this couple & whatever happened to them?

Thank you,

Yizkor Book Project, February 2015 #warsaw #poland

Shalom,

Time and tide wait for no man and certainly not the Yizkor Book Project.
Although we seemed to have quickly run out of the days of February, quite
a deal was achieved within the YB Project during February 2015.

In particular, we received quite a number of translations >from volunteer
translators who dedicate their knowledge and time in helping to move our
project forward. Translation, however, is not only the aspect of our project
in which volunteers play a major role and the Yizkor Book Project is
definitely volunteer orientated. Volunteers lend their support in editing,
coordinating projects, typing up text, transliterating necrologies,
transcribing text into Excel files, scanning books, scanning photos and the
list goes on. Volunteers are also those who make the Yizkor Book in Print
Project happen and who take part in the many facets involved in preparing
the completed translations in formats appropriate for publishing. All these
volunteers do outstanding work and we are truly indebted to the remarkable
resources their continuing efforts provide within the Yizkor Book Project.
So if I have raised your interest and you would like to be involved in one
of the fields I have noted, I would be certainly glad to hear >from you.

Now to facts and figures for February.
