Yosel GROSS-KATZ, Poland? --> Santiago --> New York #latinamerica

mark gross <mglgen@...>
 

I am attempting to gather information about my father Joseph "Yosel"
GROSS-KATZ and his family.

I believe he was born in Poland in 1903. He may have traveled and
visited several countries prior to the Holocaust, including Palestine
and Italy. During the Holocaust he emigrated to South America,
possibly disembarking in several countries before eventually settling
in Santiago, Chile. While in Santiago he attended the Chevra Kedisha
Synagogue regularly, and the Bikur Joilim Synagogue infrequently.

He was married in Santiago in 1943, and subsequently his marriage was
annulled in Chile. Thereafter, he emigrated to the USA, probably in
1958, and resided in both, Crown Heights and Williamsburg. He was
Orthodox, and frequented Bobov, Lubavitch and Satmar. He passed away
in New York, in 1975.

His immediate family: father, mother and sister perished in the
Holocaust. He spoke of having had only one surviving relative
(cousin) that lived for some time in Venezuela, and this male relative
visited him in both, Santiago and New York.

He used the name Jose while in Santiago, and both, his paternal
surname of GROSS, and his maternal surname of KATZ , as is customary
in South America. However, in the USA he used the name Joseph GROSS.

Please reply to Mark Gross at mglgen@gmail.com, any information or
details that you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
in advance.

Tow general bits of advice based on my experience. Steve is correct in
saying there is no hard and fast rule to what the cemetery maintains and a
lot does depend on the age of the burial.

As to the idea of showing up at the cemetery office, sometimes it works.
If you do go time your visit to be there at a quiet time. The office is
much more likely to help if there is not a line of people in the office
looking for help, etc.

Secondly if they are not helpful on the phone, try a letter or just try
again. Sometimes one person does not help where the next one is very
helpful. Be specific in what you are looking for and be polite.

In New York paid obits were more common than in some other areas of the
country. Look for the paid obit as well because it may say the funeral
home's name. I have found that funeral homes usually have a lot more
information than cemeteries. They in some cases even have the drafts of
the obits because they worked on them with the family or details on the
tombstone because they may have assisted.

Veteran's Cemetery Information #general

JudiZimmer
 

I just found information that a distant cousin is buried at the Bay
Pines National Cemetery in Florida . Other research indicates he never
married. I'd like to get his burial information, since it's possible one
of his siblings was next-of-kin. Since it's a veteran's cemetery, are
there any special government forms that I must fill out, or can I
approach it as I would with a regular cemetery?

Thanks,

Home congregation--19th Hungarian custom #general

Under what circumstances--if any is a man who marries and moves to the
wife's distant village still considered memeber of his home
congregation.

The question applies primarily to 19th century custom in today's
western Slovakia.

Rabbi Eliezer of Rozhinoi, mid 19th cent. #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

According to tradition my ggreatgrandmother grew up (as an orphan?)
in the home of Rabbi Eliezer of Rozhinoi (I don't know his family
name) during the mid 19th century. The Eliezer was probably a relative
or in close touch with the Volozhyn family.

Can anyone identify this Eliezer and still better, if anyone has
information on his children or "adopted" children who may have grown
up in his home.

Two months ago, Scott Schultz posted on Ukraine SIG about a source in The
State Committee on Archives of Ukraine for Kamenets Podolsk records.
(You see that in the archives.)

I wrote to the woman he referred to and she promptly replied that some of
my questions she could answer and for others she gave me alternate
addresses for inquiry.

Last week, I received scans of two birth records, one >from 1904 and one
from 1878. So thanks to Scott for that.
As an aside, I almost missed the reply itself. The scans were sent as
attachments in Cyrillic characters, so my spam filter threw them out.
Fortunately, I am aware that sometimes it throws out good mail, so I have
a look before deleting permanently.
