Fred -

It is now the Manhattan Psychiatric Center
http://www.omh.state.ny.us/omhweb/facilities/mapc/facility.htm

You can use the contact information on their page to ask
about the records. I read elsewhere there was a fire in
1923 but I don't know if it destroyed any records.

When you have a question like this, try using a search engine
like www.google.com Enter your term in the search box
with quotation marks around it.

VERMONT family #general

Eve Line Blum <eve.line.blum@...>
 

I'm searching for the family of Jean VERMONT, who submitted a Page of
Testimony in 1972 for his brother Jean Israel GREENBERG (VERMONT
being the French translation for GREENBERG (phonetically), born in
1884, deported >from France in 1944. In 1972, Jean VERMONT lived in
Port Jefferson (NY). May some Jewishgenner will be able to find his
obituary with, perhaps, the names of the members of his family who
survived him ? Thanks in advance for any information.

Re: Some tips on searching... #general

It always pays to cast a wide net. Spelling is never exact in genealogy
research. And I have found Yankel or Yaakov also under Yakov, and Jankel
And Jakov. If you don't find someone on the first go-round using
Steve Morse's One-Step to the EIDB, you should definitely get creative.
Remember these manifests were prepared when the immigrant boarded their
Ship in various ports and the spelling could very easily be determined
by the knowledge of the ship's personnel who wrote the list. On large
sailings I have found different handwriting every several pages and
sometimes ethnic groups were all grouped together.

This is a very simple but very useful suggestion for all of us on this list.

Don't limit yourself by sticking to an exact spelling of a first name
(of course, there is always Soundex for the last name).

Recently, I discovered an entry in the Ellis Island database that I
would not have found save for paging through certain manifests--very
patiently--in my 'spare time.'
Rather than "Yitzchok", the name was listed as "Itzig." Thus, my
searching with a "Y" for the first name was futile. Another example
is "Yankel" for "Yaakov" which wouldn't show up with an "exact"
search.

Kever of Tzvi Hirsh Braude ABD of Salant #rabbinic

Rav-SIG'ers:

The R. Zvi Hirsch of Salant -- teacher of R. Yisrael Lipkin (a.k.a.

SALANT, Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem for nearly seventy years. I don't
remember exactly where R. Zvi Hirsch of Salant is buried (I have all
of my papers at my parent's home and won't be getting to them for
some time), but I believe that if you contact the Chevra Kadisha of
Jerusalem (on Rechov Pines), they can check their database for where
he is buried. He is probably buried in Har HaZeysim. I visited the
Chevra Kadisha on Rechov Pines a number of years ago, at which time
they provided me with some vital information about where my
Jerusalemite ancestors were buried.

The following information is >from JewishGen's International Jewish
Cemetery Project - Israel

"[Chevra Kadisha] Perushim, Rav Mendel Glabstein (Chairman), Rehov

donation would be appropriate. They bury mostly Ashkenazim, but also
some Sephardim over the years, as well as Chassidim and Mitnagdim.

Kistarcsa deportation #hungary

Julie Kirsh <kirsh@...>
 

Does anyone know if there is a list of names of Hungarian Jews deported from
Kistarcsa, Hungary in July, 1944? I was told that my grandparents were "on
the last train to Auschwitz" and I'm trying to find any documentation that
would prove that. Supposedly my grandfather was last seen in Theresienstdat
just after liberation but died of typhus shortly after. Would the "last
deportation" have gone to Auschwitz and could he have been transported from
there to Theresienstdat? I tried the International Red Cross Tracing program
but heard nothing.
Thank you for any comments and insight.

Latkes #poland

SIRRAH205@...
 

I have so enjoyed reading about the hows and ways of cooking and eating
latkes. It bring back memories. Having lived my youthhood in rural south
Georgia also brings forth memories of a Georgia Latke better known as a
"Hush Puppy" made with similar ingredients except cornmeal is used here.
The "Hush Puppy" is fried and usually accompanies fried fish. And as so
much food has ethnic relations I submit to you some of those of my
youthhood: latkes and hush puppys, matzoh balls and magnolias, and
derma and sausage which my loving mother served in her home of Judiasm.
