Request for Photo of Burial Stone in/near Leicester, England #general

Linda
 

Dear Genners,

I am requesting a photo of a burial stone located in/near Leicester,
England.

Unfortunately, I don't know the cemetery but figure that there cannot
be many of them in Leicester. (The JCR-UK facility that might help
me find the cemeteries has broken links.)

If you can help, please contact me first so that efforts are not
duplicated.

Your help would be much appreciated.

Many thanks,

Torah says "You have to do Mitzvah and do not expect thank you >from anyone".
So, college volunteers, do you job and enjoy it.

Perhaps this was covered in detail by one of the European Hebrew
newspapers of the day, HaMelitz or MaMaggid. Both are on
microfilm at the National Library on Givat Ram and elsewhere.

and three of their children in the middle of the night (possibly after
the first Seder). The murderers were caught and held for trial. The
murders were reported in a Kolomyya newspaper (Russkya Rada,
April 1873). The death records of the five victims are posted on
JRI-Poland. According to the information on these documents, the
murders occurred on the night of April 11, 1873.

Oral history indicates that the murderer(s) was/were sentenced to
be hanged in the town square by order of the Emperor or King.
Oral history also indicates that the hanging was carried out.

How can I document the trial and the execution?

FW: Found an important manuscript #hungary

In the process of looking over a bit of the document mentioned by Tom
Venetianer, (see below) I noticed the surname SCHACHNER connected w/ Dukla
which is in Poland.

I decided to send a message to folks on the JewishGen Family Finder who are
searching this surname.

In the case of Mayer SCHACHNER who is on this list, I noticed many other
people with the surname listed on the same portion of it. They seemed to be
from Hungary.
I don't know that my messages to these people will bear fruit. But, thought
I would pass on the idea of using the Family Finder to try and connect folks
if a name or town pops out at you.

CARLEBACH-SRULOVITZ connection #hungary

Good morning,
I vaguely remember hearing years ago that my family name, SRULOVITZ, was
connected in some way to the Rabbinic CARLEBACH family. Perhaps a wife's
maiden name was SRULOVITZ? Anyway, when I do a soundex searchon
SRULOVITZ,
CARLEBACH always comes up! Does anyone have an explanation?

Re: VM15576 Manifest - town of birth, destination sisters name and street name? #ukraine

Stephen Katz
 

This is in response to the message >from Barry Chernick, quoted below.

The destination looks like "225 Chrystal St., New York". However,
I think it likely that the street is "Chrystie St.", which is in
the heart of the Lower East Side of Manhattan, where most Jewish
immigrants of that era to NYC settled. (I have not found a
"Chrystal St." in NYC.) Information about the building currently
at that address is in the NYC Department of Buildings database:

The information in that database is modern, but might nonetheless
