ViewMate translation and explanation request - Hebrew #general

Bathsheba <bathsheba@...>
 

I've posted a photo of the Atlanta gravestone of D.S. Kramer, my grandmother's
brother.
It is in Hebrew for which I need a translation.
It is on ViewMate at the following address
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM32704

Also, I understand that the name KATZ is in Hebrew on the stone below D.S.
Kramer's name. Would that be the maiden name of D.S. Kramer's mother?
Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Thank you very much.

Re: Searchable index of UK Alien Entry cards? #general

Ruvane asked about an index of UK alien entry cards.

Try this excellent database regarding UK immigration:
http://www.movinghere.org.uk/

It can be searched by name, but also can be searched by town >from which
the person came.

I've found a lot of information there on people that came to the U.K. >from
my family's towns in Poland during the WWII time period.

Re: Searchable index of UK Alien Entry cards? #general

As far as I know there was no formal (recorded) entry procedure into the UK
- unlike the United States', for example. (I'm talking about the 19th and
early 20th century - before the Second World War.) I wish there were!

In terms of ship arrivals, only those arriving >from "within the Mediterranean"
were recorded and are available at the National Archives, Kew, Richmond,
Surrey TW9 4DU.

Application for copies of any public records must be addressed to the TNA
Image Library at this address, or emailed to
image-library@...

The only records I'm (personally) aware of are as follows:

(1) The registration of "resident aliens" during the early years
of the First World War. If you check JewishGen's archives,
you will find a lengthy posting of mine describing my visit
to the Birmingham Police Museum where I was able to view and
document the alien registration records (entries) of my
paternal great-grandfather, Solomon ISAACS and his family.
Luckily for me (and other researchers whose Jewish ancestors
were in Birmingham before and during WWI, these records have
since been digitized). Unfortunately very few of these alien
registration records are extant but some of them might still
remain. If interested, be sure to check with the Register Office
of the city in question. As far as I know, the building housing
the WWI alien registration records for the London area was
bombed (destroyed) during the the Second World War. (A sad loss.)

(2) "The [Female] Enemy Alien - Exception >from Internment - Refugee"
document I obtained >from the National Archives. (See email address
above) It was for a young German Jewish woman named Sara Rebecca
SAPIRSTEIN who was already living in England and who was requesting
(and granted) refugee status. (I was hoping she would be a
"long-lost" relative of mine - but as far as know, she wasn't.)

The file was a treasure trove of information in that it not only gave her
name and address, but also her "normal" (former) occupation ("shop
assistant"), nationality ("stateless" - a poignant reminder of her uncertain
refugee status), date and place of birth, and (of course) the decision of
the tribunal: "Not to be interned" and the date - 2/12/39.

Ironically (for me, at least), Sara was even asked whether she "desire[d] to
be repatriated, "(Yes or No"; the answer of course was a "No."

Re: Genealogy help - KAPLOVITZ family #general

The town of Ilya was previouslyin the Vileijka District of
Vilna Gubernia, Russia -- but today is in Belarus. The
JewishGen Belarus SIG has translated Ilya records, as well as
many other records for the Vileijka District. I suggest you
search All Belarus Database on JewishGen. A contribution to
the JewishGen Belarus SIG will also help to get additional
records translated.

<<From: Randy Freedman ranfree@...
I would like to know if there is someone who could assist me
into my family history. Name of great grandmother was
Temma Leah KAPLOVITZ >from Ilya, Lithiania.

She had her daughter Minnie (my grandmother) with her and another
daughter, Mamie (KAPLOVITZ) WEINER was already in the States.
They settled in Boston.

Minnie's father, Heschel Avraham and his son Yitzik were shot
by the Cossacks in Ilya, Lithuania. They were bakers by trade
and baked for the Russian army.

Yitzik had a daughter named Harriet (married name Shane) who
also came to the States after her father's death.

Can anybody help trace more info on Heschel Avraham and
anyone before him or along with him. >>

In response to David Passman's query about Landsmanschaftn, I would like to
refer those interested in the topic to the book by Daniel Soyer "Jewish
Immigrant Associations and American Identity in New York, 1880-1939"
Soyer shows that there was not a full and exclusive connection between place
of origin and membership in a landsmanschaft. 2 major functions of many or
most landsmanschaft were medical insurance and burial services and these
often attracted others who may not have been >from the place of origin but
