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.

Re: Isaacs family #unitedkingdom

Harvey L Kaplan <harvey@...>
 

Meriam Haringman asks about the Isaacs family in Scotland.

In the 1881 Census (available on a set of CD Roms >from the Mormons, or at
the Scottish Jewish Archives Centre in Glasgow www.sjac.org.uk ,or at the
records offices in Glasgow and Edinburgh or online at
www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk ), we find Emanuel Isaacs in Stranraer (where he
must have been travelling), and wife Jane with children Ellis, Esther, Annie
and Harris in Edinburgh. Annie was born in Wales, and was aged 5 in 1881,
while youngest child Harris, aged 9 months, was born in Edinburgh. This
suggests the family came to Scotland c1876-1880.

Ellis was born in Merthyr Tydvil in Wales. Emanuel died in Glasgow in 1918,
and Jane in Glasgow in 1929. Ellis died in Glasgow in 1949.

Re: Mt. Zion Cemetery database #belarus

Robert Corwin <robert@...>
 

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?

Jewish Italian Research #general

Errol Schneegurt
 

In the 1937/1938 American Jewish Year Book there is a discussion of the
active role IL Trever of Rome played in the anti-Jewish movement in Italy.
One reference in particular interested me of a publication dated April 10,
1937. In the words of the Year Book "what purports to be the completest
existing list of Italian Jewish Surnames."

New York Times Rome correspondent wrote: "What the object is remains
somewhat of a mystery unless the newspaper intends to suggest, as it seems
probable, that the persons whose name appear on the list are bad or doubtful
Italians of whom the mass population should beware".

I have tried to find a reference to this list on the web but could not.
There is some information related to the IL Trever but not this publication.
Someone with more experience in how to research these publications might be
more successful that I was.

I think this list might be of value if it could be found.

Searching MALASHENKOV in Carmichael, California #general

Carol Rombro Rider
 

I am helping a new Russian immigrant here in Baltimore trying to locate a
friend. I am searching for a Vladimir and Alla MALASHENKOV who are living in
Carmichael, California.

Unfortunately I have had no luck with on-line telephone directories. If you
live in the area near Sacramento, California and can make a call to one of
the Jewish organizations for me or can tell me how I can locate these people
for my friend, please contact me privately.

Thank you in advance for the mitzvah!

FINKELSTEIN name #general

Beverly Benz
 

Hello Jewishgen ers,

My grandmother, Sophie FINKELSTEIN, was >from Poland, I believe in the
town of Lwow. She had two sisters, Rose and Sarah. Her brother was named
"Kuh-ney" (phonetic spelling since I don't know the correct spelling). My
great-grandmothers family name was something sounding like Vagner. Sophie was
born in 1900 in Poland and came to the US in 1912. I cannot find this on the
Ellis Island site. She married Charles LAZAR of Romania in Cincinnati in the
1920's and gave birth to my aunt, Selma and my mother, Yedda.
Sophie also had a cousin in Canada named Gitel Finkelstein, >from Lwow. This
unfortunately is all the information I have about my family. I am hoping
for help.

I am writing in hopes that someone will recognize one of these names.
Thanks,
Beverly Benz

Burial society questions #general

Robert Corwin <robert@...>
 

I have several questions-


- My mother's maternal grandparents >from Odessa (originally named
Kremenetsky) are buried in the "Rebeinu Chaim Hager Oestreicher KUV"
plot at Mt. Zion.

The JGSNY database list this as city: Austria, Society Type: All Others

Can anyone tell me anything about this society? It seems not related
to a particular Shtetl. Would my ggp likely have just found a
society with extra plots in 1916?

- While my mother's father is buried in the Independent Prushnitzer
KUV plot, I see a few people with the same last name in the Ostrer
Sch-1 plot. Don't know if they are related or not. Anyone know
about this society? I don't see anything similar in the JGSNY database.

- The JGSNY database lists plots in four cemeteries for Prushnitz:

Pruschnitzer Chebra Anshai Poland at Mt. Judah, Landsmanshaft
Prushnitzer Chebra (post), Bayside, Synagogue
Independent Prushnitzer Sick & Benevolent Society, Beth David
(Elmont), Landsmanshaft
Independent Prushnitzer Kranken Unt. Verein (post), Mt. Zion,
Landsmanshaft

I have family in both Mt. Zion and Mt. Judah that I know of. I'd
guess that the "Sick and Benevolent" was a later version of the
"KUV". Are the "Chebra" societies likely different societies, or are
these all the same society with plots in four locations?

- My father's maternal ggp >from Kalvarija are buried in the Mogen
Abram Anshe Ostrolenko plot at Washington Cemetery. City: Ostroleka,
Poland, Synagogue. Any clues on this one? Ostroleka is seems pretty
far away >from Kalvarija.

- Finally, my father's paternal ggp are buried in the "Society of
Wisdom of Man" plot at Washington. Society type: all others. Know
anything about this one? Is this a fraternal organization?

Thanks so much in advance for all of you expertise and thoughtfulness
as always -

Henry ABRAMS Adoption, NYC 1880's #general

Connie Fisher Newhan
 

My grandfather Henry ABRAMS was adopted. He was born in New York City in
August, 1888 or 1889

His 1952 death certificate lists his parents as Solomon RABINOWICH and
Hannah LEVINE. These names appear to be in a different handwriting than the rest
of the certificate and also appear that they may have been added later as they
are written in over what were originally dashes.

Henry ABRAMS listed Barnet ABRAMS and Rachel (?) as his parents on his 1912
Marriage Certificate to Etta KRONBERG. She died in 1918.

Henry ABRAMS listed Barnet ABRAMS and Rachel LEVINE as his parents on his
1936 Social Security Application.

Henry's birth date has been listed as 29 Aug 1888, 29 Aug 1889, and 25 Sept 1889.

I had hoped to find more substantial information on his parents names on
Henry's wedding records to my grandmother Sarah/Sadie GOLDBERG. I have an
announcement stating they were married in New York City on August 1, 1920.
I have checked and rechecked marriage records for the five boroughs of New York
City unsuccessfully. I have also looked for adoption records for Henry ABRAMS.

One thing I have wondered about is the possibility that Hannah LEVINE (a
coincidence? My mother also was named Hannah) and Rachel LEVINE were sisters.
I wonder if something did happen to Hannah LEVINE and Solomon RABINOWICH and
for whatever reason they were unable to care for Henry. If that were so, then
is it possible that Rachel LEVINE and Barnet ABRAMS took custody of Henry.
For this to have happened, wouldn't there have to be a legal document,
especially if Henry took the name ABRAMS? I have looked at New York City
adoption records for over twenty-five years and have not found an answer.
Though when I started research it was in the early 1980s and not 100 years
before Henry's birth. Perhaps those records weren't available to me at that
time???

Any direction or advice you can offer regarding finding adoption and/or
marriage records for my grandparents will be gladly accepted and most
appreciated.
