Remco <RemcoGenea@...>
 

Dear All,

I'm looking for information about Mr Simon van de KAR born december 13th
1881 in Amsterdam and his wife Reintje WITZHAUSEN born about 1885 in
Amsterdam.
What I know about this couple is that they got married on october 20th 1904
in New York. Reintje probably also died there but I have no idea when that
was. If there's anyone who could give me more information about this couple
and about there offspring I would be very greatfull.

Kind regards and thanks in advance for your help.

Greetings all,
I would first like to thank the few >from this list who sent me their
English translations of the Hebrew/Yiddish names inscribed on the New
Jersey Pinsker Holocaust memorial. It was so very nice of you to do this.
I have now added this list to the Pinsker memorial page.

I have also added a page for a Sernick/Wichevke, Ukraine memorial that
stands at Montefiore Cemetery in Springfield Gardens, New York. Would
someone please tell me what the current names are for these two towns? I
assume that they both still in the Ukraine. Also, this memorial has three
sides that list in a horizontal fashion many, many names of those who are
memorialized. This is too much for me to translate to English, so perhaps
someone again might like to undertake this task. I do have photos of the
inscriptions that are perhaps a bit larger, if the names on the photos
currently online are too small to decipher. The link to the main Holocaust
memorial page is www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/hm-main.htm .

I have also started unique surname lists for some Kiev and Odessa burial
plots in New York and New Jersey. I know that there are a good number of
you who are researchers of these cities. The Kiev list is a small one, and
has been formed >from only one small society plot. The Odessa list is >from
three society plots (out of nearly three dozen that exist in the New
York-New Jersey metro area!).

Hi. I'm trying to trace my maternal great grandmother who lived in
Hrodna/Grodno in Belarus. I've only just started this process and this
email is my first enquiry. Her name was Ettie Metchick and I believe
she would have come to England with her parents, by boat, in around
1890/1900. Does anybody out there know of her or her family? Or have
any advice on how I might persue this research?
