Burghership #southafrica

Re Adam Yamey's question on BURGHERSHIP.
I am almost sure that word is the Afrikaans
for "Citizenship" of "Ownership of a piece of land i.e.
a Farm" - but am open to correction.

Date: Wed, 3 Mar 2004 18:55:27 +0000 (GMT)

I have found a reference in the website of the National
Archives of South Africa, which reads as follows:
"MEMORIALS. HENRY BERGMANN. PPLICATION FOR DEED OF
BURGHERSHIP".

It is dated 1853, and is to be found in "DEPOT KAB".

What was "burghership" in that time? What does it
imply? What benefits did it confer on the person who
received it? Is it equivalent to citizenship of a
town?, or of the country?

Can someone please help me with this?

Jane Fish - Delhi Street Cemetery #unitedkingdom

Bill Pinsky <bpinsky@...>
 

To All:

Thanks to Robert Fraser, I obtained information regarding the Hull
Jewish Community where my gg grandfather resided. However one matter was
of concern to me. My gg grandfather is buried in the Delhi Street
Cemetery, but the plot was unmarked. The Jewish Gen site had the
following information about that cemetery:


Delhi Street Cemetery: "Recently the Hull Daily Mail had a list of
persons to be re-located within the Jewish Burial Ground at Delhi Street
Cemetery, Hull. Hedon road is to be widened. Burials were between 1834
and 1937.
Anyone wishing more information should contact me. Jane Fish

Paper copies of historical street maps can be obtained by writing to or

Re: Looking for cemetery in Brooklyn and burial society #general

Judith27
 

Dear Hope Gordon,
There is a web site called Find-A-Grave at http://www.findagrave.com/
Typing in the name of Sholem Aleichem on Find-A-Grave's search engine elicits
the response that the famous Yiddish writer Sholem Aleichem, also known as
Solomon Rabinowitz, who was born March 5,1859 and died May 13, 1916, was
buried at Mount Carmel Cemetery in Ridgewood, Queens.
Since Ridgewood is on the border of Brooklyn and Queens, it would be easy for
someone to write down that it was a Brooklyn Cemetery.
I wish you much success with your genealogical quest.

Dear Genners,
I have recently made contact with a distant relative who told me the
burial location of my husbands Great Grandfather. I have checked the
information he has given me but nothing seems to connect. I'm looking
for help.
Here is the information:
The cemetery was: "Brooklyn Jewish Cemetery, a big old place"
The site: "Morris was across the gravel path >from Sholom Aleichim's
gravesite"
The buial society was: "Ananyev Burial Insurance Society"

I have not been able to find mention of the Brooklyn Jewish Cemetery
and would like to know if the name has been changed and if anyone has
ever been to Sholom Aleichim's gravesite or knows how I can get some
information about the sites.

Also, has anyone ever heard of the above burial society? Ananyev is in
the Ukraine.

Please reply to: msnodrog@yahoo.com

Thanks in advance,

Re: Knowing the occupation - is it important? #general

Wendygriswold <wendygriswold@...>
 

With apologies, I'm cleaning up a huge backlog of e-mail, but found this
discussion so intriguing I'd like to add my own two cents' worth.

I had pounded my father for family information all my life - with no
success. It wasn't until the day I called him and said "Dad, I found someone
in the City Directory with the same last name as your father, same address
as your father, and also a house painter - this can't be a coincidence" -
that he all of a sudden "remembered" his father had a brother. I have since
learned that their Uncle Abe (who my great-grandmother lived with more than
once over the years) was a house painter, my grandfather's brother's wife's
brother was in house painting/wallpapering, and one of Uncle Abe's
brothers-in-law was a house painter. While I'm still researching, I'm
developing a picture of Uncle Abe as family patriarch who helped a lot of
people get their start in this country. Just as intriguing, and still a
mystery to me, is how a family that was obviously so joined-at-the-hip
became so disconnected a generation later that my father would not remember
his father had a brother (and two sisters, to boot).

Hope this helps,

We received a query >from a lady of 91 and was wondering whether you can
help.
She had been told that : In the late 1800s a large group of Russians
converted en-masse to Judaism and were known as 'Gerim'.
They went to Palestine and then in the early 1900s many of them migrated to
Perth, Western Australia.

Is this correct?
If so, does anyone have any information at all.

Thank you.

These people were cousins to my mother. They came >from Tulchin where my

I would like very much to contact any one who lived in that area and
wonder if there is an old phone book that might have that name in it. It is a
rather unusual name
I am also looking for FEINSTEINs that lived at 50 Morgan Street in the East

Boston with 2 small children. I wonder if H.IAS might have assisted her.
