If there is anyone in Staten Island or who has access to Staten Island, I am trying
to get photos of two ancestors' gravestones.

I called the cemetery ahead of time and can give you the exact location of the
gravestones. Please respond to me privately, and I will give you my ancestors'
names and where to find them.

Thank you very much,

GOLDBERG, Blue Island, Chicago, IL (early 20th-cen.) #general

Arnon Hershkovitz
 

Hello, Dear Colleague Genners.

My WOLKOFSKY family is still a great source for mysteries and lost branches. And
as always with this family, all the information should be questioned...

As for now, I'm looking for Ethel and Jack GOLDBERG, who lived on Blue Island Ave.,
Chicago, IL. This street refers to an unknown date, however Chicago is believed to
be their place of residence.

Ethel was the daughter of Haim Leib (Harry) and Tzina WOLKOFSKY, and I can only
estimate that she was born around 1860s/1870s. She probably came to the States from
Galati, Romania.

Ethel and Jack had a daughter, Shifra (I've no idea what was her American name),
and 7 other children.

That's all we have about this branch.

Any help would be much appreciated,
Yours,
Arnon Hershkovitz

Dear All

I have kindly been sent the photos of three gravestones from
the old Blackley Jewish Cemetery in Manchester.

If you have a connection, I would be glad to forward the photos of:

Miriam BLACK nee TISHMAN - 1886-1919 (Miriam d of Abraham a.k.a Arieh
and Abraham Lewis TISHMAN) - wife of Philip BLACK, father Isaac BLACK.

Jane BLACK (Married name) - 1884-1920 (Shayna Yetel? d of Abraham)

And a stone totally written in Hebrew for Moshe Dovid son of
Mordechai Zeev, presume he passed away around 1919 as the plots
seem to follow in year patterns.

Please contact me on ndogin@...

Both of my parents had one of these documents. I'm assuming it
was a necessary step in order to leave Vienna in 1939. Could
someone help me with this?

Where was Johannah LYON born? #usa

Steven Leof <sleof.sln25@...>
 

I'm trying to find out where my great-great-grandmother Johannah aka
Hannche, Hannsche or Hannah LYONS was born and the names of her
parents, etc.

I believe Hannche was born on 16 May 1848. Family records indicate
that she was born in Freischbach, Germany however I haven't been able
to locate the village; it has been suggested that Freischbach was an
Americanised phonetic spelling....

Hannche immigrated to America between 1863 and 1865. and married Henry
NATHAN in Memphis, Tennessee on 10 Oct 1866. The wedding was performed
by Rabbi Simon Tuska. Henry was born on 8 Mar 1846 in Ilvesheim,
Rhein-Neckar-Kreis, Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany.

By 1867 the Nathans were living in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. They moved to
Manhattan between 1880 and 1900. Hannche died on 18 Jun 1910 in Far
Rockaway, New York.

If anyone can suggest where to look for additional information I'd be
appreciative.

More on PERSKY brothers and oral history #general

Steven Bloom
 

Allan asked if there were genealogical standards for accepting some relationship as
being so (I guess, in a manner of speaking, "officially" true).

The standard that I have seen in writing and implied by many responses to just this
sort of problem is that any claim of a relationship should have "clearly convincing
evidence." In most cases, this would mean at least one form of documentation
establishing the each part of the claim (that they are >from same town, descended
from same man, etc). I would call a tombstone "documentation". In your chain of
evidence, you are missing one link or two links. One is the clear link of the other
PERSKY to your town of origin. That he claims it or did claim it is better than
nothing, but only weakly convincing to me. I consider that a good start, but not
solid evidence. The other problem is that you don't know of the Isaachars are the
same man.

What most people would say is clearly convincing is that the men are likely close
relatives of some sort.

You probably won't get anyone agreeing to much more than that, so you will just
have to continue to dig.

Of course, it is your tree, and so long as you keep it private, I suppose you can
claim what you wish. However, if it is to be distributed, and in most cases, it
will be, somehow, then you should probably hold out a bit.

for any office.
