her name was tet-ayin-mem-yud (according to the headstone), but
in the Yiddish obituaries it was tet-ayin-mem-ayin. So all
sorts of spelling variations are possible, especially of the
vowels, and a single rather than double m.

Just a note about Yaffa Eliach. She is a Professor and a Dr (PhD) not a Ms. She researched this book for 17 years travelling throughout the world to do so. Her ancestors were one of the 5 Jewish families who were founders of this very famous shtetl. She has been a Professor of Jewish Studies at Brooklyn College for many years as well as the creator of the wall of pictures at the U. S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., among many other thing things. She is now in the process of re-creating the shtetl of Eishishok in Rishon leZion in Israel.


Good luck for the coming year, 5761

Thanks to everyone who replied to my first posting. Perhaps
I should have explained more, but I was simply trying to be
brief.

Before I started ordering LDS microfilm of NYC death indexes
from 1923 to 1931, my first volunteer checked the city
directories in between (unavailable here in Seattle) and
could not find him. I was hoping to narrow the period in
which he must have died. This person also very kindly
checked the NYC death index, with no results; later I found
a third cousin doing genealogy who does research at the
Archives, and he hasn't found any death record for Gumpert
SEIDE. I think I did check NYTimes obit indexes, so I
thought I'd find out what Jewish community newspapers might
have had likely notices.. Then I could give my cousin all
the info and he could go to NYPL and look it up. I have a
feeling my ggfather was visiting somewhere else when he
died, perhaps the 4th daughter I've never been able to
locate.

Does anyone know of any trade association in the real estate
industry in the 1920s that might have had a newsletter of
some kind:?

Birth/death documents: Yehoshua Aaron STERLIN, Montreal, Canada #general

A. Sterlin <as358@...>
 

I'm looking for birth/death documents for Yehoshua Aaron STERLIN, born in
Montreal Canada. A photo of the gravestone gives death at age 6 dated 27
Sivan 5680 (which I've converted to July 13, 1920). The child is buried at
Nusach HoAri Cemetery in Montreal. He was called "Areleh" by the family, so
it is possible that his name in English may have been Aaron or some other
name beginning with A. (Aaron seems to be the popular choice of name among
the descendants who have been named for that ancestor). I have checked the
civil birth & burial indexes for Montreal (1900-1925) which are at the FHL
and he does not appear in either place. I have also contacted the Canadian
Jewish Congress for a possible obit/death notice in the Kanader Adler & have
found nothing. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for your help

Take a look at the chart folks! #general

Carol Skydell <skydell@...>
 

In true JewishGen-erosity fashion, you have wiped out the
shortfall for August and have even begun to help meet the
monthly operational costs for September! What a wonderful
group of people you are....

At this point we have no way of knowing how many of you came
through for JewishGen as first time contributors because we have
only one person handling the donations. But first timers or
repeat supporters, you each have our thanks for helping to keep
JewishGen a public service where all the programs and databases
offered are freely accessible to all who have any interest in
researching Jewish ancestral lines.

All donations will be acknowledged as soon as possible as the
dynamo administrative assistant we have running the office is
logging in the online contributions, opening stacks of mail,
depositing checks, noting e-mail addresses, and all in all is
dancin' as fast as she can.

We are still trying to come up with ways to assist people
outside the U.S. with no credit cards to send in the
contributions they are eager to donate. Please know that it
costs us approximately $30 in bank fees to cash a foreign check,
often more than the donation itself. If anybody out there in
England, Australia, or Israel has an idea of how we can
facilitate donations >from these countries... we'd be pleased
to have your input.

Now, feast your eyes folks on what you have helped JewishGen
accomplish in a relatively short space of time....

And if I may, a word of caution here folks. When you enter your
e-mail address on your credit card donation, please double check
that it is correct and complete. Our system uses what you gave
us to acknowledge and you'd be amazed at the number of bounces
we get!

If you prefer the old fashioned way <g> you can mail a
donation to JewishGen Inc, 12 Greenway Plaza Suite 1100,
Houston, TX 77046. If your name is not imprinted on your
check, please be sure it is on the return envelope and also
let us know your e-mail address so we can acknowledge your

Many thanks to all who feel a committment and a responsibility
to provide financial support to that which you are using.

Another Tombstone Reading Tip #general

Another Tombstone Reading Tip

When trying to read old tombstones at a cemetery, it is very useful to
bring a flashlight and a large paper bag. Pull the bag over the stone,
stick your head and the flashlight inside, and shine the light sideways
on the inscription; you may be able to read an inscription you could not
read before. This technique is used to study antique rock carvings and
should work equally well on old tombstones. Another way is to do what
blind people do--use your fingertips. Very often you can feel the
inscription you are not able to read.
