Looking for "Al Hoffman-Musician" #general

Judith Scarani <judithscarani1@...>
 

I am looking for descendants of Al HOFFMAN, musician. He worked for Disney
for many years, wrote many famous songs including "Mares-e-doats, and
Does-e-dotes". I was told for my whole life that he was a cousin of my great
grandmother Rose Bender. I have been looking for a connection ever since.
Sound familiar to anyone?

cemetery records accuracy #general

Judith Lipmanson <lipmanson@...>
 

I've just finished several visits to a Phila. cemetary to photograph
grave markers for one branch of my family. The cemetary management
provided me with copies of their records concerning these graves. Much
to my surprise, I've found these records innacurate, if not downright
misleading. I'm wondering how unusual this kind of situation is.

Specifically, the family owned, as far as I can determine, 12 gravesites
in 3 plots (I am using the terminology of the cemetary). Each "plot" was
a row containg 4 graves or gravesites. I'm not sure how many graves a
plot was defined to contain in those days, but for my family it appeard
to have 4 graves/plot or row. This is an old cemetary and the first
graves there for my family date back to 1902.

In plot 1 there was a written record for grave 2e for a stillborn, with
no name of parents, and only a DOD of 1903. The marker for grave 2 shows
the name of a child in the family with no inscription other than maiden
name and an attached married name, like Jane Smith Johnson. The marker
is the size typically used for a child, but the child named lived to
adulthood as far as I can determine. The current cemetery management was
unable to tell me what the designation 2e meant, instead of 2.

In plot 3, grave 4, the cemetery records show a "John"; instead the
grave marker is for his wife "Mary". There is no marker for John.

Cemetery records show plot 3 grave 1 to be occupied by someone in the
family, but markers only indicate 3 graves in that plot.

It has occurred to me that there may have been some "double-decking"
going on here, as I've found in European cemetaries. Was that done in
the US? Also, if a child married out of the religion, was it known for a
religious family to set a grave marker to indicate that the person was
considered "dead" to the family? I ask this because the individual named
in plot 1 grave 2 had a "non-Jewish" married name, and I have no family
record of her marrying.

I know these descriptions sound confusing, but no more so than when I
made my two visits and tried to compare written records to observed markers.

Child survivor from Kolomyya searching for her original identity #galicia

Eva Floersheim
 

During the last year I have gotten to know the story of a little Jewish
girl who survived the Holocaust in Kolomyya (earlier Kolomea) with the
help of Szczecfan ( Stefan) and Zofia LUTNIK.
The little girl, now a grandmother, still lives in Poland, and she and
her daughter want very much to find their Jewish roots.

Arie Suchmann >from Israel, a survivor who is active documenting the
Holocaust in Kolomyya, has become actively involved in this search.

Perhaps you too can help?
