Viewmate Documents with Unclear Handwriting #general

Lynne Shapiro <lynneshap@...>
 

I would like to make a suggestion to anyone posting documents with
unclear handwriting on Viewmate: Please post the ENTIRE document, not
just the parts you cannot read. When examining such a document, it is
helpful to see how the person who wrote it makes each letter of the
alphabet, so that one can compare the letters on the clear parts with
the letters on the unclear parts. That is the best way I have found for
interpreting the unclear letters. Also, knowing the name of the person
who wrote the document, e.g., a midwife, might be a clue as to where they
were from; someone looking at the document might have an idea how letters
were written in that country.

Town - Slanitowezyta - any references #general

Josef A. Herz <josef@...>
 

Looking for any information on a town with the name - Slanitowezyta -
the name of a town that appears in a letter >from a Great Aunt.

I assume that it is around Sokal/Stojanow/Lvov area - since that is
where the rest of the family lived.

I did attempt to find this town in ShetlFinder - but to no avail.

Thank you in advance.

RIPSTEIN #general

Paul Silverstone
 

This query concerns the RIPSTEIN family of Winnipeg and Montreal
and other places.
My cousin told me his father told him that Ripstein was not the
original family name, but he did not know anything further.
They came >from Darsuniskis (Darshonishok), Lithuania. The
father Bezalel did not come to America, but his wife Hina Gitel
died in Chicago in 1891.
Their children were:
Jacob (Yehiel) (about 1849-1936) who married Belle (Yetta)SEIPP
David Isaac, (1849-1923) name of 1st wife unknown, married 2nd
Annie FEINBERG Winnipeg; her gravestone is one of the earliest in
Winnipeg (1885).
Simon Avigdor (1854-1935) married Annie FINKELSTEIN in Winnipeg.

Rachel, married Simon (Sidney) DINER in Winnipeg.
If anyone recognizes this family >from the first names or can
suggest ways to find the original name I would be most grateful.

Yiddish Translation Help Needed - Viewmate VM099 #general

Ed Posnak <ed@...>
 

Dear Genners:

I have just posted a Yiddish document on ViewMate (VM099). I inherited it
from my grandfather. He was unable to read it , but it had been kept with
his family's important papers. The letter was written shortly after the
marriage of my great-grandparents, Becky ROTHMAN and Joe JOSEPH. I
recognize those surnames, plus a few assorted words, but don't understand
much of anything else.
I would be grateful for any help with translation! The document can be
viewed at:

Ungarn is Danish for Hungary, so maybe it is also that in some other
languages.

"Ungarn" is the German for Hungary.

that the way a Hungarian would pronounce Hungary in New York City in the

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.

Good Luck

there is another Cypress Hills Cemetery out on Long Island? If not, how
can I pursue with the one in Brooklyn if they may not be thoroughly
searching their records?


reaching out to family #ukraine

Mark Saul <MSaul@...>
 

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.
