Bratislava tombstone tradition #rabbinic

David Dubin <davidmdubin@...>
 

Hi all,
This may be more of a Rav question that a rav-SIG question, but here goes:
Unlike the custom nearly everywhere else, the Orthodox cemetery in
Bratislava, Slovakia, has the departed's name and the name of the
mother inscribed, rarely if ever mentioning the father's name (to
genealogists' great frustration). Does anyone know why?
The area was under the strong influence of the Chatam Sofer, and I
wonder if this is one of his minhagim (traditions).
Thank you.

ViewMate translation request - German #germany

Peter Dreifuss
 

Hello Gersiggers,

I've posted a vital record in Polish for which I need a translation. It =
;is on ViewMate at the following address

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM69718

I am very interested in rows 3 and 4 (that begin with 1840 and 1841) of
these Flieden records which I believe document the deaths of my STERN
ggg grandparents. Of special interest is whether the surname Difenbach
appears. These were obtained via the Hessen Gatermann Index.

Please respond via the form provided on the ViewMate image page. Thanks
very much. Sincerely,

Pete Dreifuss Watertown, MA

seashells with gravestone-like inscriptions #lithuania

Renee Steinig
 

My friend has two unusual heirlooms: seashells that are inscribed, in
raised lettering, with wording you'd see on a Jewish gravestone. One
shell memorializes Nachman ben Shmaryahu Elchanan, who died in 1904
(27 Adar 5664); the other is for Yente bat Yosef who died in 1909 (19
Nisan 5669). Above the names on each shell are words >from Lamentations
16:1 "Al eileh ani bochiya...."

My friend's late husband's grandparents were Morris (Moshe David)
Diamond and Yetta (Itke) nee Swidler, both born c. 1885. Morris
immigrated to the United States c. 1906, probably >from Vilna; Yetta
arrived >from Dunilovichi in 1907. They lived briefly in New York City,
then settled in the Boston area. Morris's father (Nachman) and Yetta's
mother (Yente) may well be the people who were memorialized on the
shells but without knowing fathers' names, we can't be sure.

Has anyone heard of such shells -- or of this family?

Thanks.

Renee

Hi everybody,

You may remember a while ago I posted a message that Jewish cemetery in town of Reni
(Bessarabia, now-Odessa Obl.) was burned out and it was not clear >from the press message what
damage was it for the tombstones.

Well, now, we know. Our member who was at this cemetery after the fire sent me an email.
According to him, the vegetation was burned out, but no visible damage to the stones! Now, when
all the bushes are gone, the access to the graves are much easier, and you can get to every
tombstone and hopefully read the inscription.

I hope that our photographer will be at the cemetery this month and photograph all the tombstones......

FLANZBAUM in Feodosia #ukraine

I'm trying to track down information on the Flanzbaum family in
Feodosia. I know there are Flanzbaums >from Poland and Romania (I'm
descended >from the Romanian ones), but I suspect they're all related,
since it's a fairly distinctive name.

JewishGen has no record of Flanzbaums >from Ukraine. Just >from Poland
and Bessarabia.

Does anyone here have additional information?

Thanks,
Lisa
