Re: 176 Clinton; Montefiore Home = Hospital #general

Ira Leviton
 

Dear Cousins,

Rabbi Ben-Zion Saydman asked: My latest mystery involves a NYC death
certficate. Riva MELTSNER died October 17, 1909 at the Montefiore Home
for Chronic Invalids. Has anyone ever heard of this institution? If so,
do they have records >from 1909? The death certificate states that Riva
lived at the Montefiore Home for 8 1/2 months prior to her passing...>>>

Not only have I heard of Montefiore, I see its name on my paycheck
every two weeks. It still exists, as Montefiore Medical Center. In 1909,
it was located in upper Manhattan, but plans were already underway for it
to expand and move to the Bronx, which it did in 1912, and since then its
address has been 111 East 210th Street. Although it started as a chronic
care institution, taking care of patients with tuberculosis, cancer, and
other chronic illnesses, it became an acute care hospital decades ago.

Back then, patients >from all over New York City were sent there for the
"fresh air," which was the main treatment for tuberculosis. This
continued even after they moved to the Bronx.

They have an Archivist's Office (telephone number 718-920-6149), but
nobody picked up the phone today, and she might be on vacation. However,
based on my previous attempts, I do not believe that they have any patient
records >from that time, other than noteworthy historical items.

Please write to me privately with any additional questions about
Montefiore.

Yes. The name is often given as Avraham. The same for conversion. When a

Renee Steinig <rsteinig@...>
 

As Town Leader for the town of Mielec for JRI - Poland (Jewish
Records Indexing-Poland), I am happy to share some good news
for Mielec researchers.

Approximately 5,000 Mielec records in the Rzeszow branch of
the Polish State Archives have been indexed for JRI - Poland,
including census listings, army draft entries, and vital
records. The Archives also reports the discovery of
3,000-3,500 additional records, which we hope can be indexed
in the future.

If you would like more information on these records, please
let me know, and I will be glad to send details.

Neunkirchen was Re: GOETZ #general

Nick <tulse04-news@...>
 

I have replied to Jack privately but I thought that there were some
interesting general points which others might wish to comment on.

Indeed I did a search on Neunkirchen and 10 such places come up on multimap.

Having said that I presume that it was the Neunkirchen near Bad
Mergentheim as there is a webpage about the former synagogue there
http://www.alemannia-judaica.de/neunkirchen_synagoge.htm.

The website for the Standesamt (registrar) in Bad Mergentheim is
http://www.bad-mergentheim.de/Standesamt.881.0.html

I would doubt that there would be registrations as early as that, but they
might have registrations of relatives.

The website for the Archive is
http://www.bad-mergentheim.de/Stadtarchiv.989.0.html#897.

I believe that the Jewish cemetery for the area is the Unterbalbach
cemetery:
http://www.alemannia-judaica.de/unterbalbach_friedhof.htm.

See http://www.alemannia-judaica.de/tracking_jewish_history.htm which is in
English. which mentions Neunkirchen.

There is an unpublished document:

Der jüdische Friedhof von Lauda-Königshofen-Unterbalbach.
Unveröffentlichte Grunddokumentation des Landesdenkmalamtes, 2003.
Bearbeiterinen: Situtunga Michal Antmann und Martina Strehlen.

which translates as:

The Jewish Cemetery of Lauda-Königshofen-Unterbalbach

Re: Oceanview Cemetery in NY ??? #general

Sam Schleman <Samara99@...>
 

Dear Joan;

Living in NYC, as you do, you really should join the Jewish Genealogy
Society of New York.

They maintain a web site which includes a listing and description of all NY
area cemeteries, including phone numbers, at http://www.jgsny.org/nycem.htm.
While this listing does not indicate the age of Oceanview, Baron Hirsch
opened in 1901 and United Hebrew in 1908, both being on Staten Island.

Sam

Samuel POMERANTZ, my gg uncle, was born in Kamenets-Litovsk in 1875 and died
on the Lower East side (Grand Street) in NYC in 1913. His death certificate
seems to indicate he was buried in Oceanview Cemetery (section R) - but it
is hard to read. I have located an address for an Oceanview Cemetery in
Staten Island but was surprised to find his family buried him on Staten
Island.

Could I have the name of the cemetery wrong? --- Is there another cemetery
with a similar name somewhere else? --- Would they have taken the body over
on a ferry? --- Is anyone familiar with this cemetery or with any burial
societies that buried people there? (The death certificate indicates the
undertaker was A. Livingston at 248 Grand Street.)

I have sent the Oceanview Cemetery in Staten Island a letter requesting
information but have not gotten any response. I am planning to visit the
cemetery but any information about it prior to my visit or any suggestions
for getting information >from them will be appreciated!

My grandparents, Ida FRIEDMAN and Alexander POLLACHEK were married in
June 1906 at Cong. Bnei Peizer, 127 E. 82nd Street, New York City.
Apparently this temple is now closed. Does anyone know if the

Dear Genners.
My greatgrandfather BEIZMAN Aharon searved (because of his chaligraphic
handwriting) for a landlord in Volhyn somewhere near Zvil (Novograd
Volhynskij). How can I proceed? Maybe there is a list of landlofds of the
region?
Beizman Aharon was killed in pogrom in 1916(?) Is there a list of killed
during pogroms?
