Re: Mt. Zion Cemetery database #belarus

Be *very* careful about using the "death" date >from this particular
resource. I have found numerous instances of the date being cited to
be the first day of the month of death, suggesting the database
defaults to merely the first of the month. If I found a relative who
died 1/15/1951, the database instead says 1/1/1951. In other
instances where it gives a closer date, it has generally turned out
to be the burial date.

Still, a welcome addition to the growing NYC cemetery database
collection. Be on the lookout for Steve Morse to link this with his
other NYC cemetery search engine.

Today is its first day. The URL is www.mountzioncemetery.com. Fortunately,
it offers the same search capabilities as its sister sites,

keep us all busy for some time. Happy hunting!

Logan,

I have it at home. Let me know what tombstone you are interested
in and I will - IF it is in the book - scan it and send it to
you.

However, in that book there aren't photos of *all* the existing
tombstones, as there are in the other books by Elias Levin.

Best regards
Elsebeth

EPSTEIN Family Y-DNA Study #latvia

Itzhak Epstein
 

Several EPSTEINs have joined in a Family Tree DNA JewishGen surname project.

Painless mouth swab genetic testing procedures are being used as a promising
tool for breaking through our genealogical brick walls. It might help you
to greatly expand your family tree, and may also help our surname project.

EPSTEIN is a popular Ashkenazi surname. JewishGen family finder's listings
indicate that its EPSTEIN researchers' interests are concentrated in
Belarus, Lithuania, and the nearby parts of Poland; and, as they get further
away, they are more moderately represented in eastern and central Europe.
Latvia is Just to the north of this concentration. So far, most of our
project's members' recent direct male ancestors are >from Belarus or nearby
areas in Poland, Lithuania, and the Ukraine. We are looking forward to our
first "Latvian" member.

We have identified members of one paternal lineage that has borne the
Epstein surname for several centuries. There are hints of another old line.
Most of the project's current members, however, are patrilineally unrelated
to each other. In addition, most of us have discovered patrilineal
relationships to men whose surnames are not EPSTEIN. Most of us trace
our ancestry to eastern Europe, and only two to Germany.

We are working on identifying the various branches of our principal cluster,
on exploring additional clusters, and on connecting our unrelated
members to cousins. To accomplish these goals and to create as broad
a search as possible, we need more male Epsteins to contribute a
cheek swab as a DNA sample. If you are female EPSTEIN or an EPSTEIN
through female ancestors, a sample >from an EPSTEIN male relative can
represent your family in the test. If you are not an EPSTEIN, please share
this message with EPSTEINs who may want to participate in this project.

To join, go to http://tinyurl.com/nyh6z
The basic, and most affordable, twelve marker test will indicate to whom
you are probably related. The more advanced tests could help to identify
closer and more certain relationships. You can start with the 12 marker test
and add to it at a later date, using the same sample.

More information about DNA testing and JewishGen's involvement in it
can be found at http://www.jewishgen.org/dna/

If you have any questions, please contact Marsha Epstein, our project's
volunteer administrator at epsteindna_admin@earthlink.net

Location of town in Europe #belarus

RDensley@...
 

Searching location of hailing place

Please forgive me in advance if I do not property post this message.
This is my first attempt. I am trying to find information regarding
where in Europe my family came from. My grandfather told us may
untruths, why I don't know. These are the verified facts. The 1920
census says my great grandparents came >from Germany and spoke German and
that they came in 1890 (Max) and N/A (Dora). The 1930 census says they
came >from Russia and spoke Russian and came in 1892 (Max) and 1895
(Dora). =20

Then I found Dobe (Dora), Alter (Arthur) and Riwe (Rebecca)
Katzenellenbogen on ships list in 1890 sailing >from Hamburg, Germany
listing the citizenship as Austrian and the hailing place as Renlisewitz
or Renhisewitz. I haven't been able to find Max or Mordecai (as my
family says could be his name) I've checked all the sources that I can
find and cannot find this town/shtetlinks anywhere. Arthur
Katzenellenbogen (Ellenburg) is my grand father.

My parents were told they came >from either Minsk or Pinsk and fled to
London to come to America and that my great grandfather served in the
Prussian army. =20

I know the borders changed during this period of history. I've searched
all the databases I can think of to try and find this hailing place and
don't know if it in 1890 this town was in Austria, Belarus, Poland,
Galacia.

Does anyone have information that could help me pin down an area? I've
posted my name with Jewishgen and everyone talks about the Meir
Katzenellenbogen and I'm sure somehow we go back to him but I need to
get back a few generations first.

Thanks for any help or leads you can give me,

Mt. Zion Cemetery questions about Society plots #belarus

Rose Feldman <rosef@...>
 

have pictures of the entrance to two plots at Mt. Zion Cemetery:
Chevreh Adath Kedeyshim Anshe Rozinoy Path D2 Left, Gate 16 - but I can't
find it on the search engine
and
Roznoyer Kranken Unt. Verein (post) Path D2 Left, Gate 12 - which I guess is
Roznoyer in the search engine.
Another question - What society does KOSSOVER stand for?
Steven Morse use to have a search engine for the first two cemeteries that
went online, but I can't find that engine on his page.
This was the only way to get a list that had more than two hundred persons.
I was hoping that he would add this one.
