Borislav Jewish Cemetery #general

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

Gesher Galicia is trying to find out if there is a Jewish cemetery still in
existence in Borislav, Ukraine (about 5 km >from Drohobycz.)

We've been contacted by someone who says there is a cemetery with about 300
headstones, which we would be interested in documenting, but there seems to
be some uncertainty if this truly exists...or if it is a Jewish cemetery.

If you have traveled to Borislav recently and have knowledge of a Jewish
burial grounds in or around the town, please contact me privately unless the
information is of interest to the group. If you have any photographs please
include them.

Many thanks!

IAJGS Conference Friday Morning Schedule #unitedkingdom

SUBJECT LINE: Early registration fee for Conference ends May 15

Before you book that return plane ticket, or plan to hop on the train to
your summer home or to take off for the beach, please look at the
Conference's Friday morning schedule. We have some very exciting talks and
events planned that morning that you won't want to miss.

We have been blessed with over 260 presentations. Rather than keeping
everyone awake until midnight every night to attend them, we opted to
schedule a full morning of sessions on Friday, Aug. 18, >from 8:00 a.m. to
12:15 p.m.

If you're interested in Jews >from Lithuania, Ukraine, Hungary, Greece,
Transcarpathia, Scotland -- or New York...

If you'd like to gain exposure on the Internet, unearth deep dark secrets
about the criminals in your family's past, or find other "Jews in the
news"...

If you need advice on getting organized, publishing your research, or
conserving your photos and documents...

If you're searching for living relatives or trying to learn more about Shoah
victims or survivors...

If you hope to understand your "chochka" (or how a word comes to be spelled
that way)...

If you want to hear the story of a genealogist who became "suddenly
Jewish"...

...Friday has something for you. I suggest that you read about Friday's
sessions on the Conference web site

www.jgsny2006.org/conference_program.cfm

One of these programs requires some preparation. For "The Jewish Chochka and
Ephemera Road Show" (Session 408), Rafi Guber requests that registrants
bring family items, documents, photos, and ephemera to the conference. He
and a panel will help determine when and >from where the items originated and
any other secrets they may reveal about your family. Please remember to
bring along items for this exciting session.

Stay through the 18th and leave on a chai!

EARLY REGISTRATION MUST BE SUBMITTED BY MAY 15, 2006 !!!

Dear genners,
I just got a translation of a letter >from 1924 and discovered that
my grandfather Aba Brandes ( born ab. 1870 ) had a brother Yankev
Shmil Brandes whose two sons were already in USA : the eldest Avrom
( Abraham ) helped his younger brother Ayzik ( Itsik or Isaac ) to
come while the other could only go to Cuba waiting for an US visa :
he was Yosie ( Joseph or Yossef ) Brandes..
The letter mentions also another relative Wolf Kremmer already in US.
If these names sounds to you please let me know.

Finding Homes for Documents #general

Joy Rich <joyrichny@...>
 

Many of us have had the same experience as Pamela and Farra. We've received
documents we ordered (birth, marriage, or death certificates, naturalization
papers, wills), eagerly opened the envelopes, and found that the documents
pertained to people who happened to have the same names as our ancestors.

The IAJGS conference will be providing an opporunity to change our disappointment
into someone else's happiness. We can bring these documents to the conference for
others to browse through in hopes of finding some about their ancestors.

Attach a piece of paper to the document with a paper clip and print the name of
the person the record is about, last name first. If you'd like to be contacted by
the person who claims the ancestor, include your contact information.

"Molan's Live Store" - 1920s - Bronx??? #belarus

Michelle Frager <lulu_brooks@...>
 

In the city directories for 1922-23, and 1924-25 covering Manhattan and Bronx
in NYC, there are two successive listings for "Molan's The Live Store", then
"Molan's Live Store". The earlier one was on Webster Avenue, the later one on
College Avenue.

Does anyone know if these would have been the kind of poultry/fish shop where
you picked a living bird and they slaughtered and cleaned it for you? Would
meats have been sold in the same place? I remember a very cavernous, basic,
wood-floored and wood-tabled shop of that sort in Bensonhurst before we moved
on to Long Island in the 1950s, but can't recall if meats were on offer too. To
say these were atmospheric is putting it mildly. Perhaps reminiscent of the old
country's markets.

Ultimately I'm trying to find one Barney SHAPIRO, a butcher as far as we know,
whose business may have been in Harlem. But I do want to know about the "Live
Store" if anyone can help.

Many thanks,

Thanks very much, Martin, for sharing these links. For those interested in
maps of Danzig, I also recommend the city map at
http://mitglied.lycos.de/Pomerania2/images/danzig2.jpg, dated 1896, on Hauke
Fehlberg's website "Genealogy in historical East Germany." It shows the
Great Synagogue in section B4. I am in the process of trying to get
permission to place this and other maps on our SIG website. (Note: I have
not provided a link to the homepage of Mr. Fehlberg's website, because it
carries advertising that sometimes includes material some might find
