Fate of Smuelis and Nechama Zulty #lithuania

franck
 

Hello,

Smuelis Zulty and Nechama Zulty were prisoners in The Vilnius Ghetto in May
1942.

Nechama Zulty was born in 1929, he was a tailor. Smuelis Zulty was born in
1915, he was a baker.

I don't know if Nechama and Smuelis escaped The Vilnius Ghetto.

I would know their family because I think they were related to my family.
Too I would like to know their fate.

I would also like to know where Smuelis Zulty came from? Where did he
live before he was prisoner in the Vilnius Ghetto, in May 1942?

Best regards,

Franck d'Almeida-Zolty (Zulty).

TOPFER/TEPPER & KURZER Landowner Records #poland

roe kard
 

There was a place called Wulka Mazowieki about 8 miles east of Rawa
Ruska, about 30 miles northwest of Lvov. Most of the people listed in
(what i was told were) the landowner records for this town were non-
Jews, but, among the major landowners in the area were two Jewish
families: the Topfers/Tepper's and Kurzers, my great-great
grandparents. I believe that they also held title or rental rights
over land in surrounding towns. If you have family with these names
anywhere around Lvov, please contact me and I am happy to share these
records with you. I am asking that anyone with whom I share records,
share with me any translations they do of the records they take >from me.

Shabbat Shalom,

Re: Burial Societies: Next Steps to Take? #general

Ira Leviton
 

Dear Cousins,

Alex Magocsi sought information about the Fidelis Society, which had a
plot a Mount Zion Cemetery in Maspeth (Queens), N.Y., and asked whether
the burial society exited, where their records might be found, and whether
the cemetery might have more information than that available on-line?
Their first burial was in 1937, the last was 1987.

Here are some things to do to obtain more information for any "burial
society"

1. Call the cemetery. They keep a last known contact number, usually the
group's president, cemetery committee chairman, or equivalent, for every
society. They usually don't know whether or not the group still exists,
but they always have somebody's name on record, whether it's somebody who
died 50 years ago, or a contact person who had nothing to do with a
disbanded group but received a small amount of money to arrange for
burials that were reserved while the group was still in existence.

2. Get the exact name of the group >from the cemetery. Then look on line
via www.jewishgen.org/Cemetery/ to see if there are other cemeteries (in
this case in the New York City area, which includes Queens, Brooklyn,
Staten Island, Long Island, Westchester, and New Jersey) in which the
group may own another plot. The plot at Maspeth may have been filled, or
the fallen into disrepair, or simply fallen out of favor with the
membership for a newer cemetery, which may still be active, or at least
have more recent information.

3. Especially if this burial society was a landsmanshaft, call YIVO or
search their information at home.att.net/~landsmanshaft/yivo.htm
(unfortunately, in this case, Fidelis is not listed).

4. Assuming that this group is or was a non-profit corporation in the
State of New York, call the New York State Department of State to see if
they have any current information (unlikely, but worth a try), or
information about a merger with another group or a name change.

Regards,

Ira

TWEKEN Name #general

Hello all,

I just came across the name of my maternal great-grandmother and it is >from
my grandparents marriage license application. As both of my grandparents
were new to America I'm sure that their accents changed the sound and
pronouncement of the name. I would so appreciate help with this name...What
else could it be? I already checked Jewishgen soundex but nothing really
sounded the same or near the same to me. The name was:
Hustel TWEKEN. My grandparents came >from a town about 40 miles >from
Czernovitz.

Any and all help will be so very appreciated.
Wishing us all good luck on our searches.

Re: Robinson family name #general

The sister of the late Rabbi Louis Rabinowitz was Dr. Flora (or Florence)
Robinson. She was the doctor for students at the Hebrew University in the
early fifties and I did not know of the relationship until I read Rabbi
Rabinowitz's obituary. There is also historian Jacob Robinson and Nehemiah
Robinson.

I can't get into the Haifa burial data base. I'm sure that it's a
problem with my computer. I am copying information that I have for
several Israeli cemeteries, in the hope that it may be of help to
others, which includes the Haifa data base.
Please drop me an email and tell me in what way the Haifa site fails to load
in your computer. There is no reason why you should not see it and use it;
it is a pity that you didn't supply a bit of information that might have
helped us help you. Computers have no way to differentiate between one
website and another; if your machine lacks something that the site requires
(probably an appropriate Java installation in this case) the lack is easily
remedied; sometimes (not in this case, however) sites are so amateurishly
designed that you are not the only one that can't use them -- and even
knowing about that is better than simpy shrugging one's shoulders and saying
that one's computer is unhappy with the site.
