Old Jewish Cemetery in Lodi, NJ / ? #general

JB <csps@...>
 

I recently received information indicating that some of my relatives are buried in the
Jewish cemetery "somewhere in Lodi, NJ." I assumed it might be the Riverside Cemetery
in Saddle Brook, and sent them an inquiry. I received a prompt reply with information
on several persons buried there with matching names, none of which appear to be the
relatives I'm searching.

According to another relative "it's an old Jewish cemetery, only open near the High
Holidays".

My question: what other "old Jewish cemeteries" are there in this area and how might
they be contacted ?

The relatives whose graves I'm trying to locate:
Max Theodore (Mordcha Tevye) GOLDSTEIN - d.1929
Lena (Leah) BLANKETT GOLDSTEIN - d.1952
Vera Beatrice - d. late 1920's

Please answer directly. Any help much appreciated.

Re: Cypress Hills Cemetery, Brooklyn or Long Island???? #general

Stephen B. Nathan <Steve@...>
 

Hi:
There is a small National Cemetery in Brooklyn in the area of (but not
next to) the larger and better known Cypress Hills that you contacted.
If your uncle was a veteran he could be in
Cypress Hills National Cemetery
625 Jamaica Ave., Brooklyn, NY 11208

The cemetery is beautiful and well kept. But since it has been full for
years it is not manned on a regular basis. The records are (or were) at
the National Cemetery at Pinelawn "Long Island National Cemetery".
That is in Suffolk County on Long Island.
The following is the phone number for Calverton National Cemetery (which
is the currently used cemetery since the others are full). If you call
them they may have the records or give you the number for Pinelawn. I
tried information and the operator couldn't find Pinelawn's number. When
you find who has the records, they are very helpful and will probably do
a search for you over the phone.
631-727-5410
Good Luck

searching their records?

I need advice about the personal side of genealogy.

I have lists of names, and even addresses, of distant
relatives in America whom I would like to contact. My
grandparents knew their grandparents, my parents
corresponded with their parents, but time has passed
and I don't know them or their adult children.


I would like to make contact, ask about extant documents,
old memories, or traditions. But I don't want to be seen
as invading their privacy.


Will a discreet note, mentioning my purposes and also the
above issues, do the trick? If I get no response, should
I cross the name of my list?


I think I need advice >from folks who have been in this

situation.

Re: London - Looking for burial place. Where to start? #general

robert.gleek <robert.gleek@...>
 

Dear Ya'acov,

Your gggrandfather could be in a number of places, but some are more likely
than others!
You must ensure you have a correct name and (ideally) a date of death - or a
year of death.
It may also help if you knew how frum he was - United, Federation etc

First try 'phoning the United Shul Office on (44) 20 8343 8989.
They cover Bushey, East Ham, Plashet, Edmonton Utd, Waltham Abbey etc and
have everything on computer
If you have no luck, then phone Edmonton Federation on (44) 20 8807
6289/2268 (most of my family are here)
Then, if you still have no luck, you will need to consider contacting the
other cemeteries in London
eg Streatham, Enfield (Carterhatch Lane), Golders Green, Willesden etc.

Good Luck!

Hi,
How can I locate my G-G-Grandfather's burial site ?. He died in London in
1924, but I don't have any idea where exactly did he lived.
I've got his Death Certificate >from the General Register Office. The
registration District was the "Mile End Old Town, South Western, County of
London". The informant was registered as "Deputy Coroner for the Eastern
District of London". These are the only clues I have about his
residence...
I will spend a week in London next month and I'd like to have any advise
about how to locate his grave.
Thanks in advance.

Re: The place Ungarn #general

Jan Bousse <boussejan@...>
 

"Ungarn" is simply the German spelling for the country called Hungary in
English, and in Hungarian Magyar Köztirsasig (Republic of Hungary).
In the late 1800s Hungary was part of the Austro-Hungarian empire. So that
person states that he was born in Hungary. Mind you, the Hungary of that
period was much larger than the present extent of the country.
