According to most manifests I have seen which encompass most all of the

individuals and their families >from Lithuania, Belarus, and the Ukraine to
Great Britain, and other European ports and >from Great Britain to the U.S.,

Lord Fink, the press lord of Australia, who was born at sea on his way to

Martin Miller's wife's cousin, Ida Olsen (Olshansky) Benderson, who was an
infant on the manifest of the S.S. Campania which came to New York in the
late 1890's.

Bessie and Isaac Fink who came to England >from the Ukraine as a toddler and

Henech Pear who came >from Lithuania to America when he was three years old

Letter *A* preceding a surname #general

Goulnik, Yves {PBC~Basel}
 

I was wondering whether the letter 'A' in front
of a surname had any meaning. I have come across
a few AGULNIK also >from Odessa but was not able
to assess whether there was any relationship to
my own surname GULNIK.

However, reading the story of Jewish Agricultural
Colonies in Russia, one of the web pages lists
people with Elcana ACOHEN as their father and
KOHAN/KOHEN as their surname.

So, what is the meaning of affixed letter 'A'?

==Yes, indeed. It's a Biblical name, Lapidot, or Ish Lapidot. Lapid is a
torch or flame and, figuratively, a link.

Common spellings in English are Lapides, Lapidos, and Lapidus.

According to Kaganoff, the name may be a pun on the Latin word for *stone*.
It could have been taken by someone working with stones (masonry) or stones
(precious).

Re: Washington Heights #general

Vivian,

My grandfather opened a beauty parlor in Washington Heights in 1939. It was
called Damor. Eventually, my father and uncle took it over and it lasted
until the early 1970s.

Damor was at 813 W. 187th St. My gps lived at 250 Cabrni, which was pretty
much at 187th.

My gps had friends, the Arditti's and Benveniste's.

My gf moved a lot too, whenever they raised the rent.

Steve.

West 188th was a neighborhood of choice not only for German Jewish
immigrants but also for Hungarians. My father, his mother, and several
sisters lived at a few doors away at 612 W. 188th Street after arriving
from Michalovce, Czech. (formerly Nagymihaly, Hungary) early in 1921. My
grandmother's brother lived at 616 W. 184th. Both families lived at
several different locations in this part of upper Manhattan during the
1920's and early 1930's. The story I heard was that my grandmother moved
whenever her apartment needed to be painted.

Tips on research/finding graves at Waldheim in Chicago #general

DMann <dms1425@...>
 

I thought I would pass these along based on experiences over the past few
weeks-

Silverman-Weiss has about 20% of the cemetery. Their sections that I
explored do not seem to be well marked. I have not yet spoken with anyone
in this office, so my comments below are based upon Waldheim's areas.

The staff at the Waldheim office is extremely helpful and very friendly.
They are quite generous with their time, so don't hesitate to call even if
your information is incomplete! They have maps available that mark their
gates and the actual rows of graves are marked fairly well.

They also mentioned to me that they will take photos of the graves for you.
I forgot to ask about the fees involved for this service.

Once you obtain the gate #, row #, lot #, section # and grave #, they will
also give you the names surrounding the grave you requested. Make sure you
take those names with you or give them to the person who is making the trip
to the cemetery. It is very helpful, especially since some of the stones
are disintegrating, toppled over or overgrown with grass and weeds.

The surrounding names are also helpful in pinning down a grave that is
entirely in Hebrew! Unfortunately, I cannot read Hebrew, but I knew I was
photographing the right grave because I had the names of the people buried
on either side and their stones were in English & Hebrew.

If anyone is interested in making a general donation to Waldheim, they will
be happy to apply it to uncared for graves in the section you request.

The contact info for Waldheim Cemetery is 1400 Des Plaines Avenue
Forest Park, IL 60130-2598. (708) 366-4541. Outside IL (800) 222-4541.
Fax (708) 366-4575. Office hours are M-F 8:30am to 4:00pm Central time.
They are open on Sunday 9:00am-3:00pm Central time April through October.

The contact info for Silverman and Weiss: 1303 S. Des Plaines Road, Forest
Park, IL 60130. (708) 366-0125
