Cemetery plots from defunct landsmanschaften #general

Judy Simon
 

A woman who found me through the Rezekne shtetl website called me
about wanting to buy a cemetery plot for herself in the Degel Yehudo
cemetery in Deans, New Jersey, in the B'nai Rezitza section. As it
turns out, I had been to the cemetery recently to visit my my
grandparents' graves and I noticed there are many unused plots, but
nobody seems to know who has the deeds. The cemetery told the woman
who contacted me it could not sell the plots because they are owned
by B'Nai Rezitza. B'nai Rezitza has long been defunct.

Does anyone have any suggestions about how the woman who contacted me
could buy some of the unused plots in the B'nai Rezitza section of
Degel Yehudo cemetery? I remember reading an article a year or two
ago in the Jewish Week about unused cemetery plots and people who were
selling them without authority or ownership. This does not seem to be
the case with the B'nai Rezitza section, since it is largely empty.

1905 Russian/Polish Jewish organization abbreviated SS #general

Jamie Kotler <jbakotler@...>
 

Dear Fellow Genners,
There is a reference in the Miedzyrzec Podlaski Yizkor Book to an
organization that existed around 1905 in Russia/Poland. Jews belonged
to this organization. In the book it is abbreviated as SS (in Hebrew
letters, samach, samach). There is no further clarification. The
context is as follows:

"All of the working youth followed the Bund. It was only it was only in
the hearts of the more intellectual youth that an internal battle raged
between nationalist and socialist ideals and organizations such as the
S.S., the Sejmists, and the like"

Does anyone know which organization the abbreviation SS might refer to?

Thank you,

New York City research question #general

Bev Lipsitz <lipsitzb@...>
 

Hi all. I'm going to be in NYC next week. I do not have family >from New
York that I know of. My grandparents and great-grandparents immigrated
to Pittsburgh, mostly between 1890 and 1910. My European roots are in:

Sereje, Suwalki, Lithuania;
Olyka, Volhynia,Ukraine;
Lyakhovitch, Belarus;
Petrikov, Minsk Gubernia, Belarus.

I'm wondering if anyone has ideas about research resources that are
likely to be productive for me to visit while I'm in NYC.

Thanks.

Re: Data Base #unitedkingdom

Jackye Sullins <jsullins@...>
 

Ron,

You need to be more specific about your goals. There is no one database
online holding all British immigrant records. There are various types of
records such as censuses, BMD, newspapers, etc. available online. Other
records you can find on microfilm at the LDS library, public libraries could
have records or at a Jewish Genealogical Society in your area might have
information.

Hello all,
Can anyone please tell me, is there a data base, or records kept of
immigrants
from eastern Europe in the late 1800's, early 1900's?
I am trying to find family >from Latvia and Lithuania who went Edinburgh

Albert Berthold GROSSMAN - Son of Jacob and Minnie #general

Linda Shefler
 

Albert Berthold GROSSMAN was born April 1852, supposedly in Hungary (but the
exact place unknown and it might have only been Hungary for a period of time
and then become something else).

Albert was the son of Jacob and Minnie GROSSMAN. He was one of several
brothers and attended a rabbinical seminary of which his oldest brother was
the director. His intention was to become a rabbi. At the time he already
had a brother living in America, possibly in Atlanta, and Albert eventually
came to America in 1880 as an art consultant.

I am attempting to help my cousin learn more about his GROSSMAN family and
would greatly appreciate hearing >from anyone who is connected to this family
or has knowledge of them. A rabbinical seminary run by a GROSSMAN might be
an important clue.

Please respond privately.

Many thanks,
