Hi Genners:

In her message of July 18, Deborah Glassman says, in part:

"you should look at The Special Board of
Inquiry Records themselves. I have most often used the microfilm series for
the Philadelphia Board of Special Inquiry. "

My question is, are there any "Special Board of Inquiry Records" for New
York
arrivals?

IAJGS Award #general

Nancy Holden
 

We are so proud to learn that Dave Fox received the IAJGS Outstanding
Project Award at the 2004 IAJGS Conference in Jerusalem. Although many of us
could not applaud him in person, it is so wonderful to know that the hard
work Dave has done in our behalf has been so well received.

A beautiful plaque bears this testimonial:

"Outstanding Project Award
In recognition of the numerous projects undertaken within the Belarus SIG
that have generated seventeen databases containing 250,000 individual
entries. Under David's leadership and guidance, his cadre of volunteers has
worked successfully with archives, translators and organizations to create a
significant repository of Belarus records, documents and other information.
The "All Belarus Database" is an outstanding growing and readily accessible
resource used by thousands of individuals researching their Jewish roots."

The Belarus SIG is one of the largest with membership of over 1700 members and
growing. As part of JewishGen, projects such as this make the records of our
ancestors available to researchers everywhere. This recognition of those who
donate so much of their time in our behalf is inspirational.

ABELES / ABEL (Paul, Emil, Stefan, Marianne) #general

FederLee@...
 

I am searching for information about two brothes (Paul and Emil ABEL) who
were born in Vienna and went to London in the late 1930s.

At the time the brothers were born (1874 and 1875), the surname was ABELES.
But in 1882, the family changed this to ABEL (In Vienna).

Paul ABEL was born 21 Mar 1874 in Vienna. Became a lawyer. Married Hedwig
(maiden name ?). In 1939, in London, he was exempted >from internment and
lived at XX Belzize Grove. In 1939, also living at XX Belzize Grove was a
Fanny ABEL, housewife, (born 15 May 1886 in Vienna). Is she same as Hedwig?
At some later time (years?) Paul lived at XX Grove End Gardens, London NW8.

Emil ABEL was born 02 Jun 1875 in Vienna. Was an Organic Chemist. Married to
Milla (maiden name ?). Emil died in London (Marlebourne?) 03 apr 1958.

Stefan ABEL: son of either Paul or Emil. (prob. born abt 1910 in Vienna).

Marianne ABEL: daughter of either Paul or Emil. (prob. born abt 1910 in
Vienna).

Any information will be much appreciated. Please reply privately.

Re: STEINBERG in Indianapolis (Indianapolis Cemeteries) #general

I have been unable to find any reference to the "Refugee Cemetery", but the
following information is derived >from "History of Death the Jewish Way in
Indianapolis" by Tevie Jacobs in Indiana Jewish History, Publication No. 31,
The Indiana Jewish Historical Society, Fort Wayne, Indiana, August 1996:

The first and Jewish cemetery in Indianapolis belonged to the Reform
congregation, Indianapolis Hebrew Congregation (IHC) which was purchased the
land for their cemetery on Kelly Street in 1858. It remained the only
Jewish cemetery for many years. As immigrant groups began arriving in
Indianapolis >from Eastern Europe, they developed their own orthodox
congregations each of which purchased cemetery plots west of IHC cemetery,
although they looked like a single cemetery with no fences or barriers.

I am not aware of a death index or burial index for Indianapolis. Your best
bet is to contact the congregations to ask if they have any records of the
burials you are seeking. Links to the Indianapolis congregations are
available at http://www.jfgi.org/section_display.html?id=5
