The National Library of Lithuania online catalogue shows the holding
https://lnb.libis.lt/biSearchAction.do?BI001=C1C1B0002199149&resId=

The catalogue also shows one for 1921 and 1922. Perhaps try writing (in English) and asking them to look up the name for you.

Per the extract of her death record on FamilySearch, the baby who died
on 28 Aug. 1905 was the daughter of Sam Shapiro and Ida Cohn. The
child who died on 13 Sept. 1905 had the parents you're looking for --
Isy Shapiro and Ida Isenberg. She's buried at Mount Zion Cemetery,
which, as others have written, still exists and has an online
database. It lists "Lilly Schapiro," who is buried on the grounds of
the Chebra Gemilis Chasodim Anshe Motele -- a society formed by
immigrants from what's now Motol, Belarus.

Translatioin needed - German #translation #photographs #galicia

I would very much appreciate a complete translation of this postcard with a photograph of three men.  Hoping that a translation will help us identify the men in the photo and provide more family information.  Was written in NYC from my husband's grandfather in 1906 to his wife and three daughters in Baden
Austria.  At least one of the men is probably Uncle Burk who was from Lemberg.  Does anyone have any connection with the Burk/Bork/Borker family from Lemberg and Vienna?

The postard is on ViewMate at the following address ...

On a piece of paper that I found next to her name is 2699 and next to his name is 2695.

 

Could they be birth years?   Death years?    Hebrew date year?   Russian/Polish date year?   

Poland, as a Roman Catholic country, would have been using the same calendar since the late 1500s as what is now the U.S. has been using since the mid-1700s.  The years 2699 and 2695 are not until almost 700 years into the future on that calendar.

Russia used a slightly different calendar, but the difference was less than two weeks, so the years 2699 and 2695 are not until almost 700 years into the future on that calendar either.

On the Hebrew calendar, the current year is 5781, so 2699 and 2695 were over 3000 years ago.  I do not believe that you found records of Jews in Russia/Poland that were that old.

The current Islamic (Muslim) year is 1442, so 2699 and 2695 are over 1000 years into the future.

I haven't checked the Chinese calendar, but agree with Ethan that these numbers are not years.

Re: Zack in San Diego or Los Angeles #usa

I was the coordinator of the San Diego Jewish Genealogical Society project to record the names on the graves in the San Diego County Jewish cemeteries or Jewish sections of cemeteries for JOWBR.  The Home of Peace Cemetery gave us a complete copy of their records, which included not only the names of the deceased, but additional information such as the name of the person the death certificate was sent to, the name of the rabbi or cantor, the mortuary.  Not all the entries have additional information.

The entry for Gregorio states that the death certificate was sent to Srul Kleinman in Whittier, California.  I left out the street address, but if you Google him, you'll you should easily find it.  The mortuary was Cypress View and the service was done by Cantor Max Furmanski of Mexico.  

Julia is not included because she died in 1998 and we finished the project in 1995.

Dear Trudy Barch (or Trudy):

I hope that someone yet-more-experienced with genealogy than I am will respond to your query, but I will say/ask:

I) If Abram and Mejta were born in and lived in what we consider the 19th century,

1) The numbers "2699" and "2695" could not possibly be years from the Jewish calendar (the Jewish year would be 3760 plus the Gregorian calendar year after December of the Jewish year -- so the Jewish year would have to be beyond 5500 in the 19th century);

2) while the Russian Empire did not use the Gregorian calendar (it was adopted by the Soviet Union until after the 2nd Russian Revolution of 1917 which brought it into power in the former Empire), I (myself) doubt that calendar years there could have been hundreds of years "off" from the "Common Era" (to Christians, "Anno Domini") which we use (the Wikipedia article on "Anno Domini" seems to say that the Russian Empire adopted the "Anno Domini" numbers for years in 1700).

II) I strongly suspect that what you have are record numbers for Abram and Mejta from either a document or an index -- which leads me to the questions:

III) What is the "piece of paper that" you "found" with these numbers on it, and (if possible) could you describe it and/or post to this thread a scan of what you have seen??

Good Luck with your query.

Sincerely,

Ethan Kent (in New York City).

Aaron, I was told many years ago never to trust death records. As an example I have an Elizabeth MOSS in my tree. Her death in Sydney Australia lists here parents from London as Isaac and Elizabeth. The mother's name is correct as no doubt this person told her family she was named after her mother. However her father's name was Henry, not Isaac. Be careful with information found in death records as it is provided by third parties.

Judaica at the Virtual Exhibition “The Golden Age of the Jagiellonian Dynasty” #galicia #poland #announcement

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

The Ossolineum Library has launched a virtual exhibition “The Golden Age of the Jagiellonian Dynasty” with many unique objects showing the Renaissance-period culture in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. The exhibition is accessible in English via the link:

https://zlotaepoka.ossolineum.pl/en/

Among the books, manuscripts and objects of art displayed online, there are also artefacts relating to the Jewish people, like the 1569 Cracow edition of Shulchan Aruch, one of two existing copies in the world (section: “The Society and Economy,” category: “Nations and Faith”). The accompanying videopodcasts have English
subtitles. Of particular interest is the presentation by Professor Marcin Wodziński, who heads the Wroclaw University's Department of Jewish Studies.

We extend our congratulations to Dr. Agnieszka Franczyk-Cegla, co-creator of the exhibition and Gesher Galicia's archival advisor in the Ossolineum. For more information on the Ossolineum history and collections, please refer to the article by Dr. Franczyk-Cegla published in the Galitzianer, June 2020, pp. 4-8.

NY cemeteries 1905 #general #usa

Trudy Barch
 

I think I have found a cousin that died as a baby (Lillie Shapiro) in Manhattan, NY 1905.  On FamilySearch, I found 2 death items with burial dates 2 weeks apart AND different cemeteries. Parents names are similar – Isack/Isadore and Ida Eisenberg (todays spelling)

One cemetery is Washington with burial August 28, 1905 and the other cemetery is Mt. Zion with burial September 13, 1905

I was not able to find either cemetery online today.   Are they still in existence? 

Any suggestions, how might I prove which cemetery and date this baby/child died and was buried?

Thank you for any help and suggestions you can give me.

Creating a map in Europe #general

Moishe Miller
 

Hi,
I hope everyone is doing well.

My paternal grandparents left Nyirbator, Hungary, via railroad, to a port city in Italy, and from there, via boat, to Paris, France. Would anyone have a suggestion about a way to show this trip on a map. Is there software or an online option that can provide me with a print-ready solution?

Also, would anyone know of a database or search engine that can help me find a manifest of my grandparent's ship voyage from Italy to France, in 1938 (I do have their 1942 ship manifest from France to Baltimore, MD)?

Looking for Herman/Hyman Wayler on ships manifest #general #lithuania

Debbie Fleischhacker Wayler
 

Hi
I am looking for information about my husband's grandfather Hyman/Herman Wayler born June 16, 1883 in Kaunas (Kovno).
According to his naturalization papers he immigrated on the ship Barcelona originating from Hamburg arriving in the US on Feb 2 (5), 1903.
I can not find his name on the ship's manifest.  He had no other relatives in the US. We are wondering if he changed his last name.
thank you so much
