I put up a webpage with a list of names, place of birth, and date and place of
death. It's sorted alphabetically by last name.

This has allowed me to connect with several previously-unknown relatives. They
see the name of their grandfather and his siblings, for example, and contact
me. Since there's no relationship between the names, it's meaningless to
anyone who isn't a relative.

INTRO - researching CAMNITZER family from West Prussia #germany

JJBUCKEL@...
 

Hello GerSig,

I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for about 10
years. I consider myself to be a "technical novice" in doing German Jewish
Genealogy research. I live in suburban California, USA .
My native language is German and I also know French and obviously English.
I consider myself expert in using a computer. My experience in using the
Internet is extensive.

I have identified the names and birth and death dates of 2 of my
grandparents, 2 of my great grandparents and 2 of my great great grandparents.

My primary research goals now are to find out whatever I can about the fate
of my extended family who lived in the villages around present-day Bydgoszcz.
I will be traveling in the area in the spring of 2006 and would very much
like to make contact with an English-speaking person >from the area.

The family names and towns that I am researching are:

CAMNITZER - Zempelburg (Sepolno Krajenskie), Schwenkatao, Suchau (Sucha)
NEUMANN - Suchau (Sucha)

I welcome input >from anyone with a connection to the above. Best Regards,

John Buckel - _jjbuckel@aol.com_ (mailto:jjbuckel@aol.com) Cupertino, California

Rachel,
Rather than publish info about your ancestors, on the internet, you should
consider finding people who are researching your same town. Network with
them and come up with a way to get more information about your town and
family. Volunteer for town projects. This would be a much better use of
your time.

By offering info about your relatives, freely, how will you discriminate
between people who are legitimate potential relatives, and thieves who just
want to know more about you. I think you are putting your privacy and that
of your relatives at great risk.

Personal information is no one else's business. Protect yourself against
identity theft. Don't publish genealogies.

Re: locating name of cemetary of ancestor's burial #general

Lisa Lepore <llepore@...>
 

Oliver -

I'm sure the rabbis are referring to the death certificate, which
should give you the name of the cemeteries the grandmothers
are buried in - at least for the grandmother who died in 1951,
and hopefully the earlier one.

You didn't say where you live, but if you mean August 28, then
Sophie or another family member should go in person and
obtain copies of these certificates.

These instructions are for obtaining certificates for people
who died in *New York City*. If they died somewhere else
in NY, you need to visit a different department.

Certificates for deaths after 1949 come >from here
http://www.nyc.gov/html/doh/html/vr/vrdappl.shtml

Before 1949, the department of records is where you will
go - instructions are here.
http://www.nyc.gov/html/records/html/vitalrecords/home.shtml

Isn't there anyone in Sophie's family who knows where the
the grandmother's are buried, or what synagogues they may
have attended? She should contact every one of her older
relatives to see if someone knows something that will help
locate them.

My bride-to-be, Sophie, is running into problems establishing the
Jewishness of her mother's line to some rabbis (who got set on the case
before it came out that Sophie's grandmother held seders) and she has
been instructed to find evidence that Sophie's great grandmother was
buried in a Jewish cemetery. This would be in New York. The rabbis
suggested "the department of records." Is the name of the cemetery of
burial even in such records? I can't imagine what kind of records the
rabbi's were referring to besides death certificates. We're in a hurry
to settle this because the invitations are already out for an wedding
and reception on the 28th at an orthodox shul (we're not even religious,
but it's where I was Bar Mitzvah). Can anybody offer us advice? We'd be
grateful!

Re: Chordokover Cemetery; Provisio, Illinois #general

Steve -

I tried to find some information for you, but couldn't find this
name anywhere. I looked at the JewishGen cemetery project
page, but did not find it listed there. Where did you obtain the
name of the cemetery? I'm not familiar with the Hebrew language,
so I can't help with any alternate name possibilities, but maybe
someone else will be able to make a suggestion.

Here is the link to the cemetery page for Chicago area cemeteries
http://www.jewishgen.org/cemetery/northamerica/illchgo.html

You might want to contact -

Waldheim Jewish Cemetery
1400 Des Plaines Ave
Forest Park, 60130

to see if your Chordokover cemetery is or was one of the sections
there.

There are other Jewish cemeteries in Proviso township, but this one
is probably the largest and oldest.

Also, if you do a search at google.com for proviso township +cemetery
you will get lots of links. Proviso township is located in west
central Cook County.

I know others don't share my opinion; but, it would be polite for you to
canvass your living relatives to get their permissions even though their
names may not be published. Your ancestors are theirs also.

I will soon be publishing my family's genealogy so it will be searchable by
Google. I do plan to remove personal information for living people, such as
birthdates. As a webmaster concerned with privacy this seems appropriate.

Am I on the right track here? As Yehuda said, I want to facilitate finding

Any advice welcome.
