Hello Everyone:

I am a long-time monitor of H-SIG, and once again, I'm reaching out....

Does anyone plan to visit the Kosma Utca cemetery in Budapest?
I know the exact parcel, row, and grave numbers of an ancestor who
died in 1913, and would really appreciate a photograph of the gravestone.
Please contact me for details.

I am looking for sources on Konyatyn, Ukraine. I think I identified it as located

Konyatyn are held (for 1885-1905) and whether there are any other sources for
research.


Rony,

There are two villages named Konyatyn (Koniatin) that are located in Ukraine. One
village is in Chernigov region and the other one in West Bukovina. Konyatyn in
Bukovina is the place that is listed in JGFF database with a single researcher.

Generally, when place is too small to be identified, best would be to look into the
neighbouring larger shtetlakhs. Konyatyn nearest known Jewish populated places are
Yablunytsya (Yablonica) and Putila (Putyla) in Bukovina. Putila, the larger town
with largest Jewish population in the vicinity is most probably where records have
been deposited.

"History of Bukovina Jews", Tel-Aviv 1962 is the best for region research and to
contact directly researcher that is listed in JGFF for Konyatyn might be also
helpful.

Best,

Alexander Sharon
JGFF editor
