Mt. Zion Cemetery- names "missing" from data base #general

D. Abrams <dabrams1@...>
 

Like others, I couldn't find relatives' names on the Mount Zion database.
However, after some really creative searching I was eventually successful.
My two relatives' surnames were badly misspelled. I thought the
misspellings were transcription errors and called the cemetery. I was told
the names were spelled as they appear in the cemetery's records. To make
any changes they said they require certified copies of the death
certificates showing the correct spelling. I happened to have one
certificate which is now on it's way to Maspeth and have since requested the
other. It will be interesting to see if/when the names are changed on the
database.

Searching the Mt. Zion Cemetery database #belarus

Greetings all,
I have created a page on my website that suggests the best ways to do a
search on the Mt. Zion Cemetery database. If you are having problems with
your searches, it might pay to take a look at it. The link to this page is
www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/erc-scdb.htm .
If you are looking for all the burial entries for a certain surname without
exact knowledge of where they are buried, I would urge you to search all
four available cemetery databases, i.e. those of Mts. Zion, Hebron, Carmel
and Moriah. These databases combined contain information on over half a
million burials.
I am hoping that the searchable databases for Mts. Judah and Ararat will be
created and put online before the August conference. I will let you know
when they are.
As a side note, July 1st marked the one-year anniversary of my virtual
museum website. I am proud of what I have accomplished and am thankful to
all those who have graciously have helped me along the way. I have just
revamped many pages on my site and have added new ones. I hope that you like
what I have done. The best is yet to come.

1899 CT City Directory - Define the Meaning of "F" ?? #poland

Nancy Ring Kendrick <ringgenealogy@...>
 

In searching a database subscription site for our ancestor Clementine RING
in the CT city directories I located the following information:

Fairfield and Southport > 1899 > R
1899 / Fairfield and Southport
Page 700
RING Clementina, MRS. bds Pine Creek, F
Leopold , rem to Bridgeport.

The "F" Leopold is new to us and we are not sure what it represents. Could
some kind person please define the "F" next to the name Leopold? Is it an
initiial? Does it mean father? Or, possibly it has another meaning?

We do have an ancestor Clementine RING who married Alexander DZIEKIEWICZ in
1896. We do have an ancestor Leopold RING. We do have an ancestor Felix
RING. So the Mrs. Clementina RING being listed in 1899 is confusing as she
is not listed using her married name DZIEKIEWICZ. Many >from this list have
emailed me information that DZIEKIEWICZ in English means RING. How do we
confirm that this is our Clementine RING DZIEKIEWICZ?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Please respond privately,
unless you believe it would be educational to subscribers.

You should all take a look at the Jewish Family History Foundation Site.
It has remarkable information about the late 1700's and early 1800's
early Revision Lists for what would later become Kovna and Vilna
Guberniias.

http://www.jewishfamilyhistory.org/index.htm

Hats off to them.
