A Healthy & Happy New Year to all!

Many thanks for the help I've received >from the Jewishgen sites, both from
the posts and private email.

At Rosh Hashonah each year, I hope to make a contribution within my means
to JewishGen-erosity to add to these good wishes and show my appreciation.

Thanks, Jewishgen!

Boston High Schools in Jewish neighborhoods #general

Jeff Blustein
 

Hopefully one of the genners is familiar with Boston's neighborhoods of the
mid 1950's. I have tried contacting Boston's federation, and a few people
listed at the classmates site, but haven't gotten any help. I'm trying to
locate my mom's first cousin nee Rosalie SCHNEIDER whose mom in Brooklyn
died in her childbirth July 8, 1936. According to family legend, her dad
Avrum left but returned a few years later and took his daughter to Boston.
He resurfaced in the mid '50's after my great grandma's (nobody remembers
the last name of her last husband) death for Rosalie's share of the
inheritance.

I presume that the only logical way to find her is to see if any classmate
might know of her, or if there was some record of her attending a high
school in Boston. To do that I need to know which High Schools in the mid
1950's she most likely would have attended.

Your replies and advice are appreciated.

Re: We *can't* lose JewishGen #general

Mila Begun <mmbegun@...>
 

What Susan King didn't mention at the Toronto conference is how much she,
personally, has sacrificed to run JewishGen.

Yes, we rely on volunteers on all the research projects, but Susan, as top
person is where the buck stops. Meaning, she is always problem solving,
working to repair computer breakdowns on our servers, doing publicity,
establishing strategic liasons with other organizations, fund raising,
resolving complaints, and on and on. She often works a very long, frantic
day, one which none of us would choose. A one-woman band if there ever
was one.

These incredible *above and beyond* efforts are because there's no one
else to handle many of these things. It would be a wonderful change if
Susan could be freed >from the nitty-gritty and concentrate on all the
creative thinking that has made JewishGen great.

With limited funds, we cannot pay additonal staff. It is my personal hope
that with appropriate donations coming in, JewishGen will be able to pay
professionals and relieve Susan King to do what she does so well:
continue to grow JewishGen into an even more amazing organization than
it is now.

1900 Manifest #general

Jackie Wasserstein
 

I saw a posting on the Belarus SIG. The e-mailer said that manifests >from
June 14, 1897 to Dec 16, 1900 were not included in the Ellis Island Database.

There had been a fire and those manifests were with the Barge Office. Is
that true? Is there anyway to get these manifests. I have been trying to
find my grandmother, Malka LACHOWITSKY, in the manifests. She came around
1900. This would certainly explain why I have been unsuccessful in
locatin her.

David and Rose KLEIN: Looking for decendants #general

JANICE GOLDMAN <jg2333@...>
 

Dear Jewishgenners:
I am seeking to find the descendants of David and Rose KLEIN, who
descended >from Harry and Fanny KLEIN in New York. In 1930, Rose was 27 and
David was 26 years of age. Rose was a *Lady in Waiting* and David was a
Laborer. Also, what was a Lady in Waiting's job description?
Thank you.

Kopivka, Ukraine #general

Joel Stearman <dpastear@...>
 

I've just learned that several members of my family were born in Kopivka,
near Nimirov, Vinitsa District, Ukraine. These 7 births were at the end
of the 1800's and the beginning of the 1900's. The family name then was
BESRUK. Kopivka was a small country village (dorf). There were only a few
Jewish families living there. One of the Jewish villagers owned two
Torahs and held services in his house. Is anyone else doing research on
this village or have any information about it?

Where is Riverside Cemetery/NYC? #general

Stephen A. Cohen
 

Riverside Memorial Chapel, 180 West 76th St at the corner of 76th and
Amsterdam Avenue in Manhattan is one of the oldest and most respected
memorial chapels in the tri-state area.

It services funerals on Long Island, central and northern New Jersey and
Westchester County. Whether it accepts funerals at greater distances I
cannot say >from my personal experience.

Within the five boroughs (counties) of New York City, there is no
Riverside Cemetery. As Ms. Futoran mentioned there is one in Bergen County
in New Jersey.

Instead of writing to the membership to answer questions like this one or
as the expression goes "try to remake the wheel" our membership should
learn to use the tools that are available.

The greatest value of association with Jerwishgen, its SIGs and study
groups is the phenomenal number of sources we have to answer questions
like this, right within the Jewishgen web pages.

When questions arise, consult FAQ (frequently asked questions), the
discussion group & SIG archives before writing to the membership. Many
answers are already there.

In this instance a Directory of Metropolitan New York Area Jewish
Cemeteries can be found at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/infofiles/nycems.txt

This lists cemeteries within about fifty miles of New York City. Through
Jewishgen you can get lists of cemeteries all over the US and worldwide.

Jewishgen gives us hundreds of powerful tools and sources of research.
Whether a member is a novice or has been in genealogy for many years, they
should go back to the basics at least once a year. New tools and sources
are constantly being added to Jewishgen.

The more efficient and organized each of us can become, the greater will
be the results of our research.
