Hi there,

After a trip to NARA NYC I have come away with copies of the 4th Draft
cards for the last name of MEYEROWITZ. I have copied only the cards for
the Bronx, Manhattan and Brooklyn. These were completed in 1942 for men
born on or after April 28, 1877 and on or before February 16 1897.
Contact me privately if you want a look-up for MEYEROWITZ only.

Death Certificate in Sarasota, Florida #general

David Linden <itinerantscribe@...>
 

Louis LEBOVITZ (or LEBOWITZ) died about 1943-1945 while on vacation in
Sarasota, Florida. His body was shipped back to New York City for burial.
I am trying to locate the cemetery where he is buried and thought if I can
find his Sarasota death certificate, that information might be on it. I do
not know the name of the funeral home that made the shipping arrangements;
knowing this would help.

All search suggestions are welcome.

Thank you.

Seeking information about the family of Abraham/Abram BROCHSTEIN who
transited Ellis Island in 1908 enroute to Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The
BROCHSTEIN family home was Ostrowiec and Ozarow Poland.

Any information as to the family would be appreciated. I am developing
the BROCHSZTAJN family tree and would like very much to include this
branch of the family.

I have extensive information that I can provide. I am a BROCHSZTAJN and I
am willing to share.

"Bolshaya" might also be translated as great. If so, "breyte gas" is the
Yiddish name, and "Wielka" is Polish. It is now called Didzijoi in modern
Vilnius. I have an original map of "Wilno" >from the 1930's, if anyone has

I agree with the response by Sonia Kovitz <Sonia.Kovitz@...> to a previous message in which Sonia said, "these streets were, and still are, in the city of Vilna proper. Perhaps since "Wilno" (Polish spelling) was also a district, that is the source of the confusion.

I believe that "Deutsche" and "Nemetskaya" [means "German"
in Russian] are in fact the same street, which is located in
the former Jewish ghetto area of Vilna".

Today, in the "Old Town" of Vilnius, the above two streets are now one
street, Vokieciu Street, with a wide walkway and several outdoor restaurants down the center. Prior to World War II, the two separate streets still existed. During the war, the area North of one of the streets was the "small ghetto". On the South side of this street were apartment buildings. South of that was the second street, lined on both sides with more buildings. South of this second street was the "large ghetto".

During the war, many of the buildings lining both streets were heavily
damaged. Later on, the buildings located in the middle of the two streets
were destroyed and replaced by a wide walkway. Today, in place of two
separate streets there is a wide walkway with a one-way street on each side of it. The locals in Vilnius call it German Street because originally, the buildings in the area were heavily populated by individuals of German descent.
