I need a cemetery look up for the following three people. Burials could
have taken place in Maryland, Delaware, Penna. New Jersey or New York, I think.

Sara Buchholtz, born about 1843, came to the USA in 1890, death unknown.
David Bernstein, born about 1889, came to the USA in 1890, death unknown.
Abraham Mandelkern, born Nov. 3, 1896, in Phila. Penna., death unknown.

Thanks for your help.

Re: The name ALKUNEH #general

Lancy
 

Last night I came in on the end of a yiddish movie being shown on my local
PBS station. When the credits were run at the end one of the actors was
listed as ALKUNEH. There is no way to tell whether that was the first or
last name. Has anyone ever come across this name? I would love to find
out if this is a given or surname and its origin.
ALKUNEH comes >from the Hebrew name ELKANAH, who was the father of
Samuel the Prophet.

Hello Genners,
Happy Chanukah to all! I am currently researching the town of

TIM[M]ENDORFER, town of Rosdzin(Silesia), also FREUNDE in Silesia #general

MBernet@...
 

I am seeking members of the TIM[M]ENDORF[ER] family. My mggm was Charlotte
TIMMENDORFER (b. ?, 1838; d. Kattowitz, 1905). Her father was Joseph
TIMENDORFER (no location nor dates) and her mother was Rosalie FREUNDE.

The Encyc.Jud mentions Berthold TIMENDORFER (b. Rosdzin, Silesia, 1853;
d. ? 1931), German communal leader (Bne Brith). It is likely that he is
related, since my mgm's family ALTMANN (of Rybnik and Kattowitz, Silesia)
were also prominent community leaders.

I can't find the town of Rosdzin on ShtettelSeeker. Can someone tell me
where it is, please. [Can it be one of the towns Radzyn, now in Poland?]

Happy Chanukka

Trying to find Jaime Glass #general

Luiz Alfredo Lilienthal <lilienth@...>
 

Dear Genners,
I am sending this message on behalf of a relative of mine, Werner
Fellner, who is looking for Jaime Glass, the son of his cousin, to recover
contact and to settle some reparation issues. This gentleman used to live
in Sao Paulo, Brazil. He is the son of Margot Glass, nee Ehrlich, who died
in 1986 in Sao Paulo. I already tried to find him through all data bases
I could discover here in Brazil (phone directories, e-mail directories,
etc), without success. Should you know or have contact to someone with
this name, even outside Brazil, please get in touch with me privately.
TIA.
Best regards,

Hi,

There was a Dr. Tobiasz Cytron in Bialystok Poland who worked in the
Ghetto hospital during WW II. He ended up surviving Auschwitz. I
recently had a statement of his given to the Jewish Historical
Commission of Bialystok Febuary 1946 translated to English. I have it
posted on my website. Here is the address,

Re: Given name Koona? #general

Edward Andelman <andelman@...>
 

In my family, the names Chuna/Elchuna/Juda (1800s--gg/uncles/cousins and
Elka my gg/mother are frequently given on the maternal side. Julius
seems to have been used in the 1900s relating back to those ancestors
and I was named Eleanore.

As has been expressed before, anglicized names weren't necessarily exact
adaptations. Sometimes the first letter or even "sound" of a Yiddish
name was used. And then again the only reference to the relative being
remembered is the given Yiddish name; there isn't any set rule.

Re: occupation "cutter" #general

A "cutter" was a person in the garment trades who cut large stacks of
cloth into the pieces that were sewn together (i.e., using a pattern. My
understanding is that this was a frequent occupation for men in the
garment industry.
My father was a cutter for nearly 40 years with Eastern Isles (ladies
pajamas and lingerie). Indeed they followed a pattern (like a blue print).
This was placed on top of a fairly high stack of cloth. Usually these were
cloths of different colors and/or design. In some cases, a very
experienced cutter would help or even design the "blue print", so that
they could maximize the number of "pieces", in the smallest and most
efficient layout. The cutting instrument was very powerful. It looked like
a saber saw with a thyroid condition. It had a sharp blade about 10 to 12
inches high. It was electric. It could also run away >from you, if you did
not have a strong and steady hand. I tried it a few times, when I was a
child, and it nearly dragged me across the cutting table.
