Researching: LINCER in New York, NY #general

cdhowie1 <cdhowie1@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I am searching for information on the siblings, ancestors, and
other relatives of my grandmother, Ruth (Regina) LINCER. She
was born in New York City on August 9, 1915. Her parents were
Sam(?) Lincer and Sarah Friedman. Both of her parents were
probably born in Poland, possibly in Krakow.

I believe that she also had three younger brothers named Max,
Jack and Irwin. She also may have been a cousin of William Lincer,
a violist with the New York Philharmonic for many years.

I have not had much success researching either my grandmother or
the Lincer surname in general. Any information or advice would
be greatly appreciated!

Sincerely,

Clinton Howie

Re: Yiddish Theatrical Alliance cemetery plot #general

Edward Rosenbaum <erosenbaum@...>
 

The Yiddish Theatrical Alliance plot is located in Mt Hebron
cemetery, which is in Queens. It is a very interesting plot
with tombstones engraved with theatrical markings (smiling/
frowning face, music staff and notes, etc). Many of the names
on these stones are clearly stage names.

STONE / NEDOREZOV / RIVKIN Chicago and Mogilev #general

Frederick J. Stone <fstone@...>
 

I just learned that my grandfather, David Stone (changed >from
Nedorezov) had cousins in Chicago named Rivkin. My grandfather
arrived in Chicago >from Mogilev, Belarus around 1910 having
followed his brother Harry who had arrived some time earlier.
Their father was named Gershon as best as I can tell. If any
one could help elucidate the connection, I would appreciate it.

Rashi's gravesite #rabbinic

Ginsburg, Paul <GinsburgP@...>
 

Here is a question I have had for some time....

Why don't we know where Rashi is buried? We know that it is
probably somewhere in France. Wouldn't it be a safe assumption
to think he was buried in the last town/village he lived in?

We know where other great rabbis who lived hundreds of years before
him are buried. Why has there never been an interest in where
Rashi's gravesite is?

The answer I usually receive is, he can be found in every Chumash
alongside the parsha. While this is true - I would still like to
find an answer [if possible].
