Photos of Deserted Jewish Cemetery, Krotoszyn, Poland and Jewish Printer, Monascha #germany

sandra <rodsandra@...>
 

I have photos of stones that were taken >from old Jewish cemetery in
Krotoszyn, (Krotochin) Poland. (which may have been part of Prussian empire)
A good many of the tombstones were taken to a church and incorporated within
a low wall around the church. (Church of St. Roch) Some time ago, I wrote an
article on these stones and the Jewish community in Krotoszyn before WWII
and Nazi occupation and was fortunate to have a contact in the modern city
who went and photographed the misplaced stones. There are no stones visible
in original cemetery now, it is virtually a forest/part and dumping ground,
owned by municipality. I will be happy to share the photos, via
email/digitally, if anyone is interested or has ancestors >from Krotoszyn.
Stones are difficult to translate in photos.

I am also interested in finding detailed information on a famous Jewish printer,
\MONASCHA, who lived in Krotoszyn in early 1800s and is well known for his
printing establishment, and much printing of Hebrew literature.
In addition, I am still researching my NATHAN ancestry, some of whom may
have lived in Krotoszyn in 17th or 18th Century, then moved to Germany.

Thank you kindly. Sandra Nathan rodsandra@gulftel.com

good German online dictionary #general

Anita <anitac47@...>
 

http://dict.tu-chemnitz.de/ is the URL for a pretty decent online German

worked pretty well for me on a long document. I have next to no background
in the language but I'm pretty good at "figgerin' " things out and this
dictionary was extremely helpful. This is not a translating engine which I
wouldn't trust but just a good dictionary--and free!

Volhynia was the name of a gubernia (province) in the Russian Empire,
west and a little north of Kiev gubernia (in which the city of Kiev was
located). It was not uncommon, I think, for people to list the region
rather than town as place of origin.

Italian Gen database updated -- now has New York death certificate index through 1948 #general

Ira Leviton
 

Dear Cousins,

I want to point out that our Italian (and other) cousins at the Italian
Genealogical Group have continued to add to their databases, which now
includes death indices for New York City through 1948 and covers all the
death certificates available at the New York City Municipal Archives.

Thanks to them we can now almost always get death certificate numbers
and then order the certificates >from the Municipal Archives without
worrying whether the clerks can locate it -- and do it >from home.

The direct link to the databases is at
http://www.italiangen.org/databaselist.stm but the connection to it via
Steve Morse's site at stevemorse.org offers additional searching
capacities.

With hopes for successful searching for all,
