Wroclaw cemetery list #poland

Sophie Frankenberg
 

I just spoke to the person in charge of the Slezna
Jewish Cemetery in Wroclaw. I was told that someone
from Israel [>from Tel Aviv] spent a week cataloguing
the names on the tombstones in the first and second
'fields', where the oldest graves, starting in 1856,
are.
Does anybody know who this person is, and where these
lists may be found? I would be very grateful for
contact details, or any other information.

Thanking you in advance

Re: explanation of notation: "Sura dn. 18 I 1939 do Warszawy" #poland

Nicole Heymans <nheymans@...>
 

Hi,

"dn." is probably short for dzien (day), "do" means to (towards), so
it probably means "Sura went to Warsaw on date 18 January 1939."

Hi
I recently came across the following notation/abbreviation, and I
was hoping that someone could tell me what it means.

"Sura dn. 18 I 1939 do Warszawy" The "18 I 1939" almost certainly
refers to a date of January 1, 1939.

The notation appears in the 1939 Biala Podlaska Census, and refers
to a woman named Sura Sztromwaser, born July 10, 1910 in Biala Podlaska.
Any help/thoughts will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,

Are you related to Harold Arlen? #general

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Cousins,

An article in a recent New Yorker tells us that the great composer Harold
ARLEN was the son of two Litvaks - I think >from Vilna: Cantor Chaim
(Samuel) ARLUCK & Celia nee ORLIN. Harold was raised in Syracuse, NY. Is
anyone related to either of his parents? I say "either" because both of
their surnames derive >from Aron.

ADLER'S in South Africa #general

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Cousins,

My wife's mother tells me that her ADLER cousins >from Zell on the Mosel
migrated variously to Cincinnati, Ohio, London, & South Africa. In 1939,
heading for Cincinnati, she and her father way-stopped in London and
briefly met one of her ADLER cousins. The ones who went to South Africa,
she says, founded a diamond mine, converted to Christianity, and maybe -
she wasn't sure - changed their surname.

Does anyone know of such a family?

Please respond privately.

Dear Vivian & Group,

My Goodness, you have the answer in your hands. Call the L.A. Temple office
and ask who posted the Yizkor notice. Use Switchboard.com or simply call
information. Also ask if other family are still members of the Temple. If
not, does anyone there remember the family. If this doesn't get an answer,
ask to put a similar request into the Temple Bulletin. It is very recent so
someone should remember the family.

Always do the easiest thing first.
