Offering Photos: Mount Carmel; Mt Lebanon; Mt Judah - Queens New York #general

A. E. Jordan
 

I have some more people asking for photos at Mount Carmel in Glendale, Queens, New
York. So I am going to offer Mount Carmel as well as Mt Judah and Mt Lebanon both
of which are alongside also in Queens, New York

I am happy to look for graves and take photos provided you can ID the appropriate
person. Each of the cemeteries has a database where you can start with your
research.

I am pretty good at finding my way around. However they are not particularly good
at sharing plot maps so sometimes it can be a real challenge.

Infants, babies and children are the most difficult because a lot of times
they did not have as significant stones and they do not survive the years.
If you are looking for a child's grave please tell me in advance.

Please be specific in your requests because I can not help you if you write with a
common name and say can you find for example Harry Cohen.... you can guess how many
there are in these cemeteries.

I do appreciate but do not demand a few dollars in return to help off set the cost
of doing these search for everyone and to make it possible for me to continue to
offer this as a service to the community. As you can understand the costs of these
repeated searches add up on me.

I am also happy to offer advice online if you email me.

German Reichsvereinigung Card Update: Correction #general

Lande
 

There was an error in one address in the previous posting. Corrected version:

The next installment of the index of the German Reichsvereinigung
registration cards (so far 26,537 names) is now available at
stevemorse.org/jewishroof/jewishroof.html. This form of registration was
required 1939-1941 for all Jews resident in Germany, whether or not they
were German citizens. Unfortunately, only a small percentage of the cards
has been located, but those which were found can be examined on the Bad
Arolsen website, https:collections.arolsen-archives.org/en/search.

The alphabetical index to the cards has so far reached up to surnames
beginning with the letter S. Unlike the cards themselves, which can only be
searched by family name, this index can be searched by place of birth or
death, or by maiden name. Many Jews resident in Germany were born in Poland
and other countries, e.g. hundreds in Posen, and a city search may yield
unexpected results. I have supplemented the information available on the
cards, drawing >from other sources.

I would be happy to try to answer any questions regarding the cards and
information on the database, but please start by looking at the cards
themselves.
