Finding death cert with mangled spelling #general

Wendy Griswold <gris@...>
 

Hi, cousins. I pass this along in case it will help someone else.

Having tried every mangled spelling I could think of, I was unable to locate
my aunt's death cert. However, I knew where she was buried. A very kind
person at Old Montefiore found a Fannie Lebit (the correct name is Ledet) in
about the right location, with the right date. The name on the headstone is
correct, but the name they have on the records and on the death cert is the
mangled version.

Hey, they got 3 letters right, not to mention the number of syllables.

Anyway, a back-door approach. Hope it does someone else some good.

Regards,

Wendy Griswold
Arlington VA

Searching: BLITZ (near Lemburg), EINHORN (near Nowy Sacz), PFEIFFER/FIFER
(near Lemburg), DWASS/DAVIS (Ekaterinoslaw), WENZELBERG - every imaginable
spelling - (near Nowy Sacz),
SHIFULDREM (Near Nowy Sacz, spelling highly questionable)

Ostrowiec Swiet... #general

Helen Nussbaum Reiss <helen@...>
 

Dear Genners:

Wondering if anyone is looking for LITWAK/BORENSZTAJN families in the City
of Ostrowiec Swietokrzyski?

This is one City that was not filmed by the Mormons so the only way to go is
by writing to the Archives.

Thank you,

In Switzerland, there is a Luzern-Stangelberg Railway. So presumably
there is a place called Stangelberg but I can't find it.
I don't think so. On Google, there is only one text,
and that is used in many "wiki" look-alike sites.

That railway track goes to Engelberg!!!

So that would be a simple spelling mistake.

Re: Australian Help/Advice #general

Doug Mason
 

Allan Jordan asks for help with research in Australia.

When you search ("Google") for the expression "Dead Persons Society" in
Australia, you will see a number of groups located around the country.

For example, the Group in Toowoomba may be found at http://www.audps.com/

I have no experience with any of the groups and I am not a member.
However, they appear to provide a lot of localised knowledge and
expertise. And Toowoomba is a long long way >from Melbourne, where I live.

Good hunting, Allan!

Jewish Cemetery in Buffalo, NY? #general

Hilary Henkin <hilary@...>
 

Dear group,
Someone in another genealogy listserve I subscribe to was wandering
through Concordia Cemetery in Buffalo,NY. She noticed another
cemetery behind the back fence, and could tell >from a few of the
tombstones that it is probably Jewish. She'd like to know more about
this cemetery - can anyone provide any information?

I checked the IAJGS Cemetery Project, and there's nothing listed for
Erie County.

Conversely, If you'd like more info, I'll be glad to share here email
address or forward a message to her.

Translate Yiddish phrase on back of photo? #general

Hilary Henkin <hilary@...>
 

Dear group,
I have an old family photo, on the back of which is a handwritten
Yiddish word or phrase. It's particularly hard to read because the
photo has water stains, and a child scribbled on the back as
well. (the identity of the child is lost to history, luckily for them . . .)

If anyone wants to take a shot at it, the direct URL is
<http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=7093>.
If you want to browse to it, it's number VM7093, near the bottom of the page.

Further details: The family is Joseph and Ida Katz and their
children, and their mothers. It was taken in Russia (Ukraine) before
they immigrated in 1905-6.

If you need a higher-resolution file, let me know.

As always, please reply privately.
