Help on reading Jewish gravestones #galicia

John ILLINGWORTH <illingw@...>
 

Please can anyone help with the translation of Jewish gravestone
inscriptions.

I am taking advantage of the new JewishGen ViewMate service. Last year, on
an independent trip to Galicia, I took several photographs of surviving
Jewish gravestones at a few cemeteries in Galicia. The cemeteries are at
Rogatin, Burshtyn, Berezhany and Bolshovtsy. The pictures may be seen by
clicking on the 'To View' button on this site:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/
and selecting the following files: VM051 to VM055. Please note these
pictures are made available on this site for 7 days only.

The pictures were taken almost at random in the hope that someone may
be helped. To this end translations will be passed on to Joyce Field for the
JewishGen Cemetery Database.

TIA and thanks to JewishGen ViewMate.

CA Death index vs. Social Security Death Index? #general

Lthorpe883@...
 

Fellow Genners-

Today I found a relative in the California Death Index. The information
included his Soc. Sec. number.
I then checked the on-line Social Security Death Index, and he did not
appear. In addition to entering his name only, I entered the Soc. Sec.
number alone.

There was no listing for that number.

What am I to infer >from this?

Of course I will send for his application and his death certificate, but
what could account for this discrepancy?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Galilee Society and its Shul in Lwow? #galicia

Heidi Urich <hurich@...>
 

Has anyone heard of the "Galilee Society" in Lwow or elsewhere?
Apparently the members of this Society raised the funds to build their
own shul in Lwow. The shul was located in a residential building on
"ul. Kr. Jadwiga" (Queen Jadwiga Street) in Lwow before WWII. My
grandfather, Chaim URICH, may have been the Gabbai (sexton) of this shul
before the war. I would also welcome any suggestions on reference books
or archives which might contain information about this organization.

Kozova Birth Indices Now Online #galicia

Willie46@...
 

Jewish Records Indexing - Poland is proud to announce the addition of over
1,500 Kozova birth indices for 1877-1893 to the database. These records
represent the complete Kozova holdings of the AGAD Archives.

If you have ancestors in the Tarnopol/Brzezany area, you may also want to
search the Kozova indices. I found an ancestor and his wife, who I knew had
five children in Tarnopol, had actually given birth to their first child in
Kozova.

With this addition, there are now over 14,000 AGAD Tarnopol Area Birth
indices on the JRI-Poland database. These indices are the result of
JRI-Poland's agreement with the Polish State Archives to index all the 19th
Century vital records for 82 towns in the former Eastern Galicia area
(currently located in Ukraine) that are held by the AGAD Archives in Warsaw.

To search the database, go to <http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/jriplweb.htm>
and enter your surname of interest. To narrow your search to the towns in
East Galicia (current Ukraine), enter Province = "Ukraine." To narrow your
search to only Kozova, enter Town = "Kozova."

In my announcement of October 24, I provided detailed instructions to search
the database and order records of interest >from the AGAD Archives. You can
find these instructions by using the JewishGen SIG Lists Archives, which can
be accessed at <http://www.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.isa?jg~jgsys~sigspop>.
Search for "Tarnopol" and you will find my October 24 posting.

I wish all Kozova researchers great success in their search of the database.
If you do find success, I would appreciate if you would post your experiences
on this forum.

I would like to thank Jay Hackin (Kozova Town Leader), Stanley Diamond, Steve
Zedeck, Michael Tobias, and the AGAD Archive staff for the success in making
these Kozova indices available to all of us.

Suffolk County, NY Probate #general

Sherribob <sherribob@...>
 

good evening 'Genners,

Would anyone who is possibly doing probate look-ups in Suffolk County, Long
Island, New York (Riverhead) be willing to look up two names for me in the
index?

I have precise dates of death, and other info.

To have this done by Suffolk probate would cost me $100, so if anyone would
be willing to do this for a moderate fee can you kindly contact me?

Thank you,

U.S. Patent Holder #general

Sherribob <sherribob@...>
 

good evening 'Genners,

Some weeks ago, while doing a web search for my highly unusual maiden name,
I came upon someone who had received a U.S. patent in 1972. However, when
I tried to enter the web site for more info I could not get in.

I looked for it again today, and that web site appears to have disappeared.
Would anyone know if there is any way to get more information on a patent
if one only knows the person's name and the year the patent was taken out?

Thanks for any info,

Sherri Bobish


Re: Label/Labe from Levi? #ukraine

Joel Bressler <nefesh2@...>
 

O.K. I stand corrected. Both Aryeh and Leib mean lion, Aryeh is the
Hebrew word and Leib is the Yiddish word. They were used together as a
name quite often, as were the names Menachem and Mendel.
You're quite correct, Louise, Levi is spelled with a vav, not a vet;
therefore, it is not related. However, Laiv in Hebrew means "heart" and
in Yiddish it means "lion."

JGeners,

I have posted on ViewMate the name of town listed as the last place of
residence for my GF on a Hamburg passenger list in 1913. I assume it is
written in German. 10 years later the remaining members of the family left
from Ekaterinopol (Katerinopol), Ukraine in the Kiev gubernia, so I assume
he probably left >from the same area.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. It is the first name listed on
ViewMate file VM049. There is some ink bleedthru making it difficult for
me to figure out. It can be viewed directly >from here:
