trip to cemetery at Yedintsy/Edinet and Briceni #romania

Alice Kaderlan <AliceKaderlan@...>
 

I am planning a trip to Moldova in May and will probably be visiting the
cemetery in Edinet. I will be happy to photograph headstones if I have time
presuming that I can get assistance in knowing how to make arrangements to
visit the cemetery.

I am also trying to determine if there ever was a Jewish cemetery in the
village near Yednitz and Briceni where my grandfather came from. It is
called Korzheutz and is equidistant >from those 2 towns. In the 1920's, when
my great great grandfather died, it had only about 200 Jews so I am trying
to determine if it would have had a Jewish cemetery at that time or if he
would have been buried in either Yednitz or Briceni.

Does Briceni have a Jewish cemetery today? Has anyone been there? Is there
a headstone project for that cemetery as well? Any information about
visiting that cemetery and the one in Chisinau would also be very much
appreciated.

Please respond to me privately.

Hi,

R' David Moshe, fifth son of the Ruzhiner, was the Chortkover Rebbe.

Here's a link to a JewishGen page on the Chortkov dynasty.

http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Suchostav/SuchostavRegion/sl_czortkow_chasidic_group.htm

[Moderator's Note: If necessary, paste the above into a single line

The Ruzhiner's first son, R' Shalom Yoseph, replaced the Ruzhiner
as the second Sedigurer Rebbe. He died less than a year after
his father, and was replaced by the second son, R' Avraham Yaakov.
R' Shalom Yoseph's son, R' Yitzchak, was the first Bohusher Rebbe.
R' Avraham Yaakov's son, R' Yisrael, was the third Sedigurer Rebbe.
R' Yisrael's brother, R' Yitzchak, was the first Boyaner Rebbe.

The other sons of the Ruzhiner,
R' Dov Ber, R' Menachem Nachum, and R' Mordechai Shraga, were Rebbes
in Liova, Stefenesht and Husyatin, respectively.
R' Mordechai Shraga's daughter, Gitel, married R' Yitzchak Meir
Heschel, Rebbe in Kopycznicz.

The Ruzhiner's son-in-law, R' Menachem Mendel, married to Miriam,
was the Vishnitzer Rebbe.
Another daughter, Chaya Malka, was the Skverer Rebbe's second wife.
They had no children together, although the Skverer had children
>from his first and third wives.
Another daughter, Gitel Tovah, married R' Yoseph MANSON. They had
two sons who were Rebbes,
R' Levy Yitzchak in Ozerana, and
R' Chaim Dov in Brod.
The 4th daughter, Leah, married R' David HALPERIN. Their son,
R' Shalom Yoseph, was Rebbe in Vasloy.

All told, there are Rebbes today >from Ruzhin, Sedigura, Boyan (there
used to be 4 - I know of at least 2 today), and Vasloy. There's no
present Chortkover Rebbe. I don't know if there are still Rebbes
from Bohush, Liova, Stefenesht, Husyatin, Ozerana and Brod. Not to
mention sons-in-law, Rebbes of at least Vishnitz and Kopycznicz.
And that's just up until the Ruzhiner's grandchildren.

I would think that the number 5 for Ruzhiner sub groups is way too
low, unless if that is the correct number for still existent groups.

January 2004 update for Yizkor Book Project #lodz #poland

Happy Presidents' Day to All.

My apologies to all for the late update on additions to the Yizkor
Book site for January 2004. I was out of town during the time I
usually prepare this monthly report but the efficient volunteers for
the Yizkor Book Project continued to work and donors continued to
submit new translations. Without these two important groups the
translation project could not exist. I can never thank them enough.

During January we produced 6 new entries and 17 updates. They are
flagged in the alphabetical listing at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html

New entries:

There are many books yet to be translated, waiting only for an eager
volunteer to step up to coordinate a translation project. Our Yizkor
Book Project staff is available to help you through the
process. Please contact me if you are willing and able to coordinate
a translation project. Or, if you have Hebrew or Yiddish translation
skills, you might want to start by volunteering to translate a
chapter >from the Pinkas HaKehillot on your ancestral town. Informaton
at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/donation/ will explain part of
the process.

Many of our projects are fundraising projects. You can help by
contributing money to pay to have these books professionally
translated. The current fundraising projects are listed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/YizkorTrans.html.

Thanks again for all the help and support our readers have provided
to the Yizkor Book Project over the years. We hope that these new
translations will help you with your research.

Help! Odd Name on Manifest #general

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Cousins,

My cousin Hirsch GRIMOWITZ arrived at Ellis Island on 3 Oct 1907.
On page 64, at the right end of line 24, he gives his mother's
name as the person left behind. The writing is quite legible.
The given name looks to be "Kremie." The first "e" is written
like an "i" but is un-dotted. The "i" near the end is dotted.

Does the name sound familiar to anyone? Or can anyone read the name
differently.

(It's possible that this woman's given name will bring
together two rather large trees I have of the
Mereminsky family of Slonim.)
