Re: Jewish undertakers in 1892 in the Pittsgrove, NJ area #general

Hello, Steve,

My family was also in the Alliance Colonies in the 19th century, and
information >from the 1890s is hard to come by. I cannot help you with
information about an undertaker.

The Center for Jewish History in NYC maintains archives >from the Baron
de Hirsch fund that contain correspondence with and about the colonies.
My "to-do" list includes a visit to the archives some day to see if I
can find my family referenced in any of the files; I live far >from NYC.
You might consider doing the same for your family if you haven't
already. The link to the finding aid is
http://digifindingaids.cjh.org/?pID=109209 [1]; these materials are not
available online.

YIVO also has archival material referencing the colonies, but I believe
these files do not include the 1890s.

If your great grandmother died there in 1892, she must have been part
of one of the earliest families to arrive. Some years ago, an
anniversary book of the Alliance founding families was published; I
can't seem to find the title of it right now, but perhaps someone else
on the list will come up with it.

I hope this is helpful and does not rehash things you have already
tried.

I've used researchers on 2 occasions - most recently to access the
1897 census (I think around 45% of the census returns survive). There
was a fire a few years ago in the local archives, which doesn't help.

Jewish undertakers in 1892 in the Pittsgrove, NJ area #general

Steve Pickoltz
 

I'm trying to find Jewish (or not) undertakers who may have done burials at the
Alliance Cemetery located in Pittsgrove Twn., Salem County, NJ. The date of
the burial was Jan. 1, 1892, and the name was Sara PICKHOLTZ.

Find the undertaker, is the last chance I have of finding info on my great
grandmother. Her arrival in the USA and the death date are all I have.

Re: Information on Naliboki, Belarus and the Jewish partisans in the nearby forests. #general

Eli,

I highly recommend the memoir written by my wife's cousin David Farfel,
entitled "In The Nesvizh Ghetto and the Naliboki Woods." It has an extensive
section on his time in the forest with the Zorin unit, as well as episodes
with Bielski. The book is in Hebrew but I have read it in its entirety and
may be able to help with translation of the parts of it relevant to you. Not
information on the town of Naliboki but of the forest. It is in various
libraries that can be identified on Worldcat.

You may also want to see Shalom Cholawski's book, "The Jews of Bielorussia
During World War 2." I believe that the Nesvizh Yizkor book, Sefer Nesvizh,
also has some information on time that some of the survivors spent in the
forest.

David's wife Elka Farfel has an extensive oral history interview in Hebrew
which can be viewed online.

I am looking for any information on the town of Naliboki, Belarus or the
nearby forests where many Jewish partisans, including the Bielskis, had
their camps.

I have just visited both.

Please email me at mailto:@elirab

Jewish given names variations #poland

Henry <henrygruder@...>
 

Few years ago in this site (I believe) somebody posted a list of Jewish
given names and their equivalents.
Does anybody still have the list?
I am looking for even remote equivalents of Kopel, and Osias,

Thanks for help,
