Wash,DC funeral director update #general

James H Gross <larklane@...>
 

Hello,
It appears that the Jewishgen infopage on Washington,DC
area funeral directors is out of date. I also found that contacting
MD/DC cemetaries can be quite challenging.

Due to geographic shifts, it appears many MD/DC cemetaries have
merged and or closed. It can be a challenge to identify and track
down the correct person handling, or having these records. In addition,
apparently a person could be buried in DC,MD or VA as they are all
in close proximity. I was twice told "no listing" when it turned out that
the deceased was there.
recommend that anyone trying to track down deaths & plots be persistent My
recent calls to them resulted in the following:

Danzansky-Goldberg Memorial Chapels
1170 Rockville Pike
Rockville,MD 20852
301-340-1400
merged in the 1960's, records are not
computerized, prefers letters in writing

Stein Hebrew Memorial Funeral Home-
closed in 1999. Its records are in the
basement of Peason Funeral Home
Pearson will do checks by mail.

Pearson Funeral Home
472 North Washington St
Falls Church,VA 22046

Re: Andre CITROEN #general

Dear Mark,

When I visited the Amsterdam City Archives on Wednesday, November 22,
2000, I looked up a CHANANIA relative of mine in the Death Records for
the years 1923-1932.

I was intrigued to find the following CITROEN names listed righted under
his, in alphabetical order, and, because a cousin of my mother's married
his wife Rose CITROEN in the Netherlands, I thought I should jot their
names down for further study:

CITROEN, Coletta/Elisabeth/Flora/Hartog/Isaak, Jacob Roelof, Jeannette,
Karel Solomon Roelof/Marianne/L. Meyer/Rebekka/Rebecca/Saartje/Sara/
Willem.

Given that "Citroen" means "lemon" in Dutch, I don't think all of the
above were necessarily Jewish. However, some of the names do show
Jewish given names.

Just thought I'd pass this on to you as general information. I'll be
glad to provide you with the address of the Amsterdam archives, etc.

Happy Chanukah!

Re: Change of telephone area codes in Israel #general

It may be well to point out that the changes described below are a
first stage in the elimination of area codes altogether. Stay tuned
for further information on this as it becomes pertinent.

On Thu, 21 Dec 2000 16:28:34, martha@bgumail.bgu.ac.il (Martha
Lev-Zion) opined:

Our national carrier, the infamous Bezek has changed the telephone area
codes of the North and the South of Israel. There are no longer any [07]
or +7 area codes in the South. They have been changed and joined to [08]
or +8. The rest of the number remains the same. Equally, in the North, all
area codes have been changed and joined to [04] or +4. There is no more
[06] or +6.

No other area codes in the country were changed and no other changes to
telephone numbers were made.

By the way, if I owe anyone email, I am snowed under for a change and am
far behind on my replies. Sorry!

Cuba: Centro Sefardi (Jose Levy Tur) #general

Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

I am trying to contact Jose Levy Tur, the president of the
Centro Sefardi in Havana, Cuba. I do have the telephone
number. But I would like to send him e-mail
or a fax. Does anyone know if Centro Sefardi (or Jose Levy
Tur) has an e-mail address or fax number?

Dan

P.S. I am trying to get information on my cousin, Yakob
Alhadef, who died in Cuba around 1950. (He was born in
Istanbul, Turkey, in around 1884.)

Glusock and Sulphur mining #general

Alexander Skolnick <askolnic@...>
 

I recently found that my great-grandmother, Golda Glusock (with 2 kids)
came to US in 1912 and the ship manifest listed that they came >from Dvinsk
(currently named Daugavpils, Latvia). Her husband (Israel) had died young
(prior to 1912) and one story was that he was a sulphur miner.

Was sulphur mining done in this area?

Has anyone ever heard of people with this unusual last name? It seems that
there is no clear correct spelling. In my research I've encountered the

names: Glusok, Gluschok, and Glusack.

any info would be appreciated.

The name ALKUNEH #general

BABYCAT3 <babycat3@...>
 

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.
Thank you and a Happy Chanukah

Tuberculosis and Death Certificates #general

MMBegun@...
 

Hi -- are you certain they died in Penna? Perhaps they were in T.B.
hospitals in other nearby states. This is what I discovered in the case
of a relative who died >from T.B. If they were ill, they usually were not
at home, but confined to a sanatorium.

Pennsylvania, as you know, borders N.Y. on the North and N.J. on the east.
You might want to research T.B. hospitals near the towns the relatives
lived in, which might be just over the state border.

At one time there was a massive T.B. facility on Staten Island, N.Y., which
today is known as Seaview Hospital and Home. All the vacant buildings
stand deteriorating and ghostly -- quite a sight. Check that one out,
since their patients came >from far & wide. Hope this helps, Mila Begun in
NYC(MMBegun@aol.com)

The name might be "Kuna," as listed in Rabbi Gorr's book on Jewish personal

infantile. Other spellings listed are Kune, Kunya, Kunye. According to
Gorr, the family name Kunin is derived >from Kune.
