Mr. Machtinger's guess about "Charkas" being Cherkassy

As for "Chicos" this just might be another case of a
transcribed mishearing of "Charkas."

Google searches for both towns, as well as searches at

Re: Ports in Canada #ukraine

A good resource for Canadian ships is the website:

Hello All,

When I looked at this site, I was unable to scroll the page up or down.
Consequently I was unable to see all of the info on the page. No 'arrows'

work! What am I missing? I did find that I could right click and highlight
the page which improved the contrast greatly.

Thanks for any help.

Photographs of headstones in Hungarian cemeteries? #hungary

Alex Skolnick <bussupp@...>
 

http://www.oroklet.hu/

This site will be very helpful to many. I found 5 potential relatives
in one of the Budapest cemeteries (Kozma Utca), and I suspect there are
others for me to find once I have the correct spelling.

I wonder if anyone has already photographed all or maybe some portion
of the headstones in Budapest? Instead of all of us asking for help
piecemeal to photograph our ancestors, maybe these photos already
exist?

DO they?

Washington Cemetery Brooklyn Photo Request #general

Dear All-

If anyone will be visiting Washington Cemetery in Brooklyn, NY, I would be
most grateful if I could get photos of three graves, those of my great
grandparents and grandmother. I have already purchased photos directly
from the cemetery but they are Polaroids and of poor quality.
I do have the locations of all three graves.

Please contact me directly if this is something you might be able to do.

Re: burial for 1884 death in Marylebone #general

"cecilia" <myths@ic24.net> wrote

What is the most likely cemetery for a woman who lived and died in
1884 in Marylebone, London, and where do I go to look at its records?

(Would the same location apply if she had died in the mid 1850s or
1870s?)
The cemetery will depend on which synagogue her family belonged to?

http://www.jewishgen.org/Cemetery/brit/london.html gives a list of London
cemeteries.

A particular synagogue would suggest a limited number of cemeteries.

Many of the cemeteries on the list were not in use in Victorian times -
therefore this will reduce the cemeteries to be searched.

If you can find out which synagogue the family belonged to this will reduce
the work again.

If you don't know this then the work will be reduced by approaching the main
synagogal bodies - the Masorti and Union of Orthodox Hebrew Congregations
didn't exist in 1884. The Federation would be unlikely to apply to someone
living in Marylebone (it grew out of the East End).
