No, Scranton is in NE Pennsylvania and ">from Shetl to Milltown" deals
with the small towns in SW Pennsylvania outside of Pittsburgh.

It covers Litvak, Galizianer and Hungarian Jews. It is a good general
study of how those immigrants settled in the mill towns of SW
Pennsylvania. I was disappointed that it did not adequately distinguish
the experiences of the three groups (which are the three groups of my
own ancestry, in that area).

Do you know if Scranton is included in the book on

Success story: found Erno BANO's tombstone (born as Herman BLAU) #hungary

Margarita Lacko <mishpologia@...>
 

Dear H-siggers,

BLAU Herman was born 17 April 1888 in Miskolc, Hungary.
In 1913 he changed his name to BANO Erno (BÁNÓ Erno) and became a technical
photographer in Budapest.
He lived in Budapest VI., Podmaninczky u. 10. He might have had his studio
in Hajos u. 45.

One relative said he died in 1937 >from a spoiled hot-dog eaten at the
International Fair of Budapest where he used to exhibit his photography and
that he is buried in the Kerepesi út cemetery. Another source said he died
in 1942 >from the same reason at the World Fair Exposition in Brussels. The
curator of the Hungarian Museum of Photography wrote that he died in 1941.

For several years I have been trying to find proof of when and where did my
grandfather die.

I just found (actually, he found me) the most fantastic researcher! In one
day he found my grandfather's death record and the next day I had three
photos of his tombstone!

My grandfather died in June 1941 and is buried at the Kozma utca cemetery.
On his tombstone you can read:
BANO Erno
1888 - 1941
NEM FELEJTUNK EL SOHA (we will never forget)
Hirsh Zvi (in Hebrew letters)

My new found cousin (its almost sure we are related through a different
branch), does all kinds of professional Jewish searches. For more
information, please contact me privately (JewishGen policy).

Best regards,
Margarita

In the records that Robert Neu found for me in Kurima (Slovakia), we have
marriages between BAUM and the families Schonfeld, Mendel, Neuman, Rubin.
These were families having children in the period 1850-1890 +-.

Does anyone have any of these four surnames in Kurima or nearby?

We have a birth record (1893) in Kurima (Slovakia) for a person with the given
name Shumer. In real life he was known as Herschel and also Herman.

Any thoughts on Shumer as a given name?

Re: Research in Pittsburgh #general

Susan M. Melnick <smmelnick@...>
 

As the archivist for the Rauh Jewish Archives at the Historical Society of
Western Pennsylvania in Pittsburgh, I want to describe the Western
Pennsylvania Jewish Cemetery Project which was begun in 1998. Resulting
from the work of a number of devoted volunteers (Rae Melnick Barent among
them), we have compiled a searchable database of over 25,000 records from
more than 60 regional cemeteries. The project is designed to preserve
burial information and to make it accessible.

The volunteers begin with extant cemetery records and maps and then visit
each cemetery to confirm the data and collect additional inscriptions. I
have been transfering the data (slowly, to be sure) to the JOWBR where it
will be generally accessible. We make no attempt to collect the data from
large active synagogues who maintain their own complete records. Our focus
is primarily on cemeteries for which the records may be incomplete or for
those cases in which the schuls that maintained them are closed. This is
the case in many of the small towns in western Pennsylvania in which once
thriving Jewish communities exist no longer. If anyone is looking for a
burial, please email me. As Arnold Sarasky mentions, the data base is by
no means complete. This is an ongoing project.

The Rauh Jewish Archives collects photographs, family papers, synagogue,
business, institutional, and organization records related the Jewish
experience in Western Pennsylvania. We are supported by an endowment at
the United Jewish Federation, by the Historical Society, and by many
generous donors. The Library and Archives are open to researchers
Tuesday through Saturday, 10am to 5pm.

This year our annual program is entitled "Out of the Kitchen and Into
History: Food, Immigration, and the Jewish Experience." The featured
speaker is Hasia Diner, the Paul S. and Sylvia Steinberg Professor of
American Jewish History in the Skirball Deparment of Hebrew and Judaic
Studies at NYU. She is the author of "Hungering for America: Italian,
Irish and Jewish Foodways in the Age of Migration." The program is on
Sunday, November 16, for 2pm to 4pm. Reservation are requested.

Hirsch and Schwartz undertakers-Need 1923 record #general

Barbara Meyers
 

Does anyone know where records >from 1923 regarding the funeral home of
Hirsch and Schwartz, 50 Willett St., NYC, might be kept these days? I am
trying to find the name of my husband's great-great grandmother and hope
that it might be noted on the undertaker's records. The death
certificate and cemetery file both show "unknown" listed for mother of
the deceased. I realize the funeral home records may not contain any
further info, but I am trying to leave no stone unturned as she is vital
solving a family tree mystery.

Thank you and any advice welcome, and please respond privately,

Unusual surname RADLOWSKY #general

Daniel Gee <DanielGee@...>
 

Dear Genners,
Do you have a Lazarus RADLOWSKY on your family tree?
He was probably born in about 1850 and lived at 5 Mathilda Street in
London. Born in Poland, he had cousins with the surname GOLDSTEIN.
RADLOWSKY may also have been spelt RADLOWSI, but I guess
was pronounced Rad-loff-ski.
If any bells ring, please email me privately!

Marseille bombing 1940 #general

Thomas F. Weiss
 

Fellow JGenners,

I am looking for help >from anyone who might have been in
Marseille in 1940 or knows the history of this period. I have a
childhood recollection of a bombing in Marseille that took place in
November (plus or minus 1 month) 1940. I have seen reference to such
a bombing in a publication. However, I am not sure who bombed the
city or why. I thought that it might have been the British Air Force
bombing French naval ships to prevent them >from being used by the
Germans. This was certainly done in other French ports on the
Mediterranean. However, despite considerable searching I have not
been able to determine who was responsible for the Marseille bombing.
If you have any thoughts on the matter, please respond to me
privately. A citation to a definitive history would be appreciated.

Many thanks,
