Re: Mt. Zion Cemetery database #belarus

Sharon R. Korn <s.r.korn@...>
 

My previous posting about the Mt. Zion Cemetery database commented that the
date of burial could be listed instead of the date of death. After I wrote
that, which was based on checking some listings in my own family, I
remembered that a cemetery employee told me a couple of years ago that their
records do not include the date of death. According to her, they have
access to only the date of burial. While I would imagine they have death
certificates in their archives, apparently their database does not show
complete information >from those certificates.

Mt. Zion has already been added to www.stevemorse.org. It is necessary to
choose the cemetery when searching, but it's easy enough to do that even if
it is a guess.

On Monday, Steve Morse added Mount Zion to his One-Step search form for Mount
Carmel and Mount Hebron At Steve's home page at www.stevemorse.org , scroll
down to "Births, Deaths, and other Vital Records," and click on "Cemeteries" to
get to the search screen.

Searches can be done there by society name. Steve offers the option of either
showing the first 200 hits or searching by year and month.

This is wonderful. With at least one possible improvement...

I did a search "by society" - for all buried in the Independent
Prushnitzer plots. I would think this could be a great way to find a
relative, possibly an in-law with a different last name, that I may
have previously missed. The site only gives the first 200 results of
the 788 results, however, with no apparent way to move to a next page.

Fortunately, I can put in a first initial for the last name, and
slowly go through the alphabet searching one letter at a time.
(thankfully, this does bring up all people whose last name begins
with "A", as opposed to all people whose last name contains an "A".)

Any better ideas?

EPSTEIN Family Y-DNA Study #germany #poland #danzig #gdansk

Itzhak Epstein
 

Several EPSTEINs have joined in a Family Tree DNA=20
=96 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.
So far, most of our project's members' recent direct male ancestors are from
Belarus or nearby areas in Poland, Lithuania, and the Ukraine. While some
Danzig EPSTEINs may be directly descended >from German EPSTEINs whose
ancestors never lived to the east, some Russian EPSTEINs settled in Danzig
subsequent to the river trade via the Vistula and the Bug. My great-uncle,
Yehoshua (Hovsei) EPSTEIN, moved the family's timber business to Danzig
from its original forest base in Motele and Pinsk.
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/

volunteer administrator at epsteindna_admin@earthlink.net

Toronto Death Certificates #general

A. E. Jordan
 

Do I understand it correctly that if you are in Toronto you can go to
the office and see death certifcates? I understand ordering copies is
almost impossible -- especially since I am in the United States?

If so if there anyone headed to the office that could look at two
specific certificates for me? I have the dates but I need to know what
the certifricates say.

I might be able to trade some New York City research if someone in
Toronto would be so kind.

Thank you.

Records for Prisoner in Philadelphia in 1914 #general

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Cousins,

My great-great-uncle spent 6 months in prison for bigamy. At the time
he was living in Philadelphia. He was relased circa 12 April 1914.
Does anyone know if it's possible to access this record? Would he
have been in a jail, a prison, a penitentary?

1939 Flight of Chofetz Chaim Yeshiva from Radin to Lithuania #general

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Cousins,

In 1939 a relative of mine fled the Chofetz Chaim Yeshiva in Radin
with about 100 students & their teachers to either Vilnius or Utan in
Lithuania. By a stroke of ironic luck, a few weeks before Hitler's
Blitzkrieg the KGB arrested them all as counter revolutionaries and
sent them by freight train to various gulags in Siberia. After the
war, those who survived gathered in a town near Nurenberg in the
American Zone. >from there, some went to a French town near Monaco...
Has anyone seen any references to this trek, any books? I should
assure you that the story is essentially true, but I'm not sure
whether my cousin simply went to the French town, or Yeshiva bochers
re-gathered there. The story was told to me by my elderly cousin who
took that journey.

Best, Steve Orlen

July 9 JGSCV Meeting- "Detecting Faults and Errors in Genealogical Sources" #general

jan meisels allen <janmallen@...>
 

Dear Jewish Genners:

The Jewish Genealogical Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County
(JGSCV)-- California is meeting on Sunday July 9, 2:00 -4:00 p.m.

Topic: Detecting Faults and Errors in Genealogical Sources- Werner Frank

Is the information you have obtained >from documents, metzevahs, photographs,
family stories true or not? Come and learn about the many times family lore
or information leads genealogists to the incorrect conclusions! Be the first
to hear this new lecture which will be given at the IAJGS Conference in New
York this summer!

Our speaker, Werner Frank, founding member and newsletter editor of the
JGSCV, author and lecturer, will discuss potential problems inherent in
genealogical research found while "digging" for his own family roots. The
presentation will focus on controversies in line of descent (using
rabbinical lines as an example); confusion in representation of names
(format differences when names were recorded); reliability in tombstone
inscriptions (errors in translating >from Hebrew lettering); biographical
fuzziness (questionable secondary sources); differences in Julian and
Gregorian calendar dates (effects Russian era and non-Russian calendars AND
resulted in the US of a loss of 11 days in September 1752); and
photographic authenticity (does the camera lie?). The presentation
sensitizes the genealogist's questioning of resource materials and
encourages validation and confirmation of their conclusions.

The meeting is scheduled for July 9, 2006 >from 2:00-4:00 pm at Temple Adat
Elohim. The meeting is co-sponsored with Temple Adat
Elohim.

Location: Temple Adat Elohim, Social Hall
2420 E. Hillcrest Drive, Thousand Oaks, CA

Directions:

Take 101 Freeway - exit Rancho Road in Thousand Oaks, go north (if coming
from the east across Thousand Oaks Blvd) to E. Hillcrest Drive
turn right on E. Hillcrest go about 1.3 miles (just east of Conejo School
Road) Temple is on the right.

There are approximately 75 parking spots within the complex. There is no
parking on Hillcrest Drive. You may park in the complex or on any
of the side streets.

There is no fee to attend the program, and anyone interested in Jewish
genealogy is welcome to attend.

For more information on the JGSCV or about the program, please contact
Jan Meisels Allen, president, JGSCV jan@JGSCV.org

Hospital in Kaunas #lithuania

Sylvia Furshman Nusinov
 

I am prompted to ask if there is anyone reading my message who may be
familiar with a hospital in Kovno, 1939.

My Father's sister wrote to him at that time - her last letter - saying she
was a nurse in the hospital near her home on Pilies g=red No.14

Is it possible that there is someone in LitvakSig who may have knowledge
of the hospital, its name and/or its records or documents of employees?

A friend touring Kovno a few years ago graciously took a few photos a short
distance >from the rear of the hospital as it could be seen >from Pilies St.
Using all the resources I know of, I have not been able to secure any
information on the fate of my Dad's sister since the dating on the letter -
December 1939.

Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Hospital in Kaunas #lithuania

Sylvia Furshman Nusinov
 

I am prompted to ask if there is anyone reading my message who may be
familiar with a hospital in Kovno, 1939.

My Father's sister wrote to him at that time - her last letter - saying she
was a nurse in the hospital near her home on Pilies g=red No.14

Is it possible that there is someone in LitvakSig who may have knowledge
of the hospital, its name and/or its records or documents of employees?

A friend touring Kovno a few years ago graciously took a few photos a short
distance >from the rear of the hospital as it could be seen >from Pilies St.
Using all the resources I know of, I have not been able to secure any
information on the fate of my Dad's sister since the dating on the letter -
December 1939.

If anyone has any thoughts on my search, please contact me privately -
unless the information would be advantageous to the members of the
Discussion Group or LitvakSIG.

Thank you.
