Finding a grave in Holyoke MA & the name Cecil #general

Fran Segall <FranSegall@...>
 

I am trying to locate the grave of a cousin, Isaac BROUDY, who died in
Holyoke, Mass. in 1931. His death certificate says "Fairview - Chicopee"
for the location of the burial.

There is a Fairview Cemetery in Chicopee (a town near Holyoke),
but it is not a Jewish cemetery.

I called them anyway, but they have no record of him.
Also, they only keep records filed by the "owner of the plot",
not by the deceased.

Other than contacting every cemetery in the Holyoke / Springfield /
Chicopee area, does anyone have any suggestions?
Has anyone ever encountered incorrect burial information on a death certificate?

The main reason for finding his grave is to learn his father's name.
The death certificate gave his father's name as "Cecil" -
again not what I would have expected!
Any idea what that may have been in Russia / Belarus?
His father never came to the US as far as I know.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated!

Perhaps Bruce Reisch or someone equally knowledgeable could give us a time

Ukraine and the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

Cantors in South Africa - Thursday August, 08, 2002.

In reply to the above message there was a Cantor
Kraus at the Oxford Shul in Johannesburg in the 1960's
and 1970's.
Contact Oxford Synagogue, Killarney Johannesburg
for further information.

Does anyone know how I could find out about a cantor who possibly
arrived in SA >from Lithuania after 1900 (maybe Cape Town)? His name
would have been Eliezer Kress (unless the spelling is off or he changed
his name entirely). Would there possibly be a list of synagogues for
that time that also includes the names of their rabbis and cantors?

Re: Suggestions #general

sallybru <sallybru@...>
 

I have a suggestion also-related to this one.

On Viewmate, there used to be a section for Yiddish/Hebrew translation, one
for Russian, one for Polish, etc.

At another time, the links specified which language.

Now it just says Translation. Those of us who can translate one thing or
another have to look at each picture to figure out what we can help with.
Could we go back to 'Yiddish translation' or 'Yiddish help' or something
similar, so I could ignore that link as I can't read it
and spend my time on something I can do?

Thank you,
