Re: Cleaning up Baron Hirsch Cemetery, other old cemeteries #general

D. Abrams <dabrams1@...>
 

Dear Genners,
About two years ago, my sister and I planned a visit to our grandparents'
graves in the Joseph Held section of Baron Hirsch. No one >from our family
had visited for ages. We had been warned by the office that Joseph Held was
one of the sections that was terribly overgrown (possibly with poison ivy)
and came prepared with gloves, gardening tools and trash bags. It took a
long time to find the two graves because almost all the stones were covered
over and the office could not provide a detailed map. Apparently, the
growth of English ivy and other climbing plants that had been popular
decades ago had been left totally unchecked. In some places they had grown
not only over the stones but attached themselves to low hanging tree
branches, creating a jungle of vines. Eventually, we found our gf's grave
and almost missed our gm's because the stone had toppled off the base. We
filled up about 6 huge trash bags (all that we had brought) just from
clearing a relatively small area. We went again a year later and were
amazed how much had grown back, mainly growth >from adjacent plots.

I think that maintaining neglected graves such as these would be a real
mitzvah. During the High Holiday services, I was delighted to hear our
rabbi indicate an interest in our Long Island, NY congregation taking on
just such a project and asking for volunteers. I don't know if this is his
own idea or part of larger coordinated effort. I will try to speak to him
about it this week and report back to the group if relevant. In any event,
it would be great if other congregations, local JGS chapters and other
groups could provide teams of volunteers, each maybe "adopting" a cemetery
or section.

Cutting back vegetation is hard work that needs an annual commitment but I
feel it can be done by amateurs. In some cases, I think herbicides are
needed to permanently get rid of ivies and other undesirables. If so, that
may call for professionals but there's much that amateurs (with the
cemetery's permission) could do.

If you know of a cemetery with neglected graves in your area, think about
asking your JGS chapter, temple or other group to get involved. It would be
a wonderful contribution to preserving family history, even if not your own.

In the meantime, anyone who's interested in forming a Baron Hirsch work
team, count me in or let me know, and I'll try to coordinate.

Re: tombstone translation help needed #ukraine

Sarah L.M. Christiansen <sarah.christiansen2@...>
 

Dear fellow Jewishgenner's
I had just received some photos of tombstones in Warsaw, and one of the
local Kollel Rabbi's had come over to visit. I had no trouble with the
names, but he helped with the inscriptions. When we were working on a
woman's tombstone, I said that I thought that she was the wife of the man's
name following the Aleph Resh, especially since her father's name had
already been mentioned above. After a minute he thought and said "Of
course, Aleph (apostrophe) Resh" is an abbreviation for Esha Rav. So that
her husband's name should follow.

the above URL contains 3 pictures of the same tombstone - the translation
has partly eluded the few I have shown it to - they are not sure.

The family name is FINKELPEARL but the only surname on the tombstone is
her married surname DARDIK. She is said to be a descendent of the Baal
Shem Tov - but I cannot prove this claim. Peshe was born in 1844 and
lived in Proskurov for many years.
The translation of her fathers name and/or title is needed,
It seems to say Peshe daughter of Eleizar Ar' [?Ari = title /
desendent of or middle name?] the Zad' [Zadic/Tzadik ???]
Peshe daughter of Eleizar Ari the ?Zadic - any feedback appreciated

Thanks,
Steve Rivkin.

Hello Saul

My name is Stewart BERNSTEIN, and I am researching BARANSHTEYN >from Labun
and Polonnoye, which is very close to Zitomir. My grandfather Lieb
BARANSHTEYN/BERNSTEIN immigrated to the U.S. around the turn of the
century and his brother GERSHKO/HARRIS BARANSHTEYN/BERNSTEIN immigrated to
England, both around the turn of the century. My grandfather stayed in
Chicago his entire life. The reason I'm writing is two fold, first,
BRONSTEIN is very close to BARANSHTEYN, and secondly, I only have
knowledge of these two siblings. I'm sure there must have been additional
brothers and sisters. Were your BRONSTEIN's actually BRONSTEIN in the
Ukraine?

They are in the 'To View' section as files VM014, VM015, and VM016.

I would also like some assistance in translating some Yiddish on a card,
which I expect to be made available at the same site shortly.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Dear Saul et al.

My paternal G'grandmother, Chana Zelda (1865 - 1942), was the daughter of
Dov Ber ZALAZNIK (died 1893) >from Berdichev, and Miriam Batia (died 1910).
Dov Ber, dealt with watches / clocks in Zhitomir, maybe this is the origin
town of Miriam Batia and her parents, Sinai and Sarah TROTSKY.
Is it possible that one Leib BRONSTEIN, who had to escape >from Russia in
1905, took a passport >from relatives? Is there any connection between
BRONSTEIN and TROTSKY?
Also, I found once a BRONSTEIN who was related to HELLER. Sarah TROTSKY,
was a direct descendant of Yom Tov Lipman Halevi HELLER (died 1654). Maybe
there is a connection?

Re: Brothers Give Parents Different Names #general

Robert Strumwasser <robertstrum@...>
 

Uncle Morris' death certificate, information given by Uncle Max'
daughter,
listed his parents names as Father: Samson LIEBERMAN Mother: Alca Ain
Today, I got my dad's application for social security and he lists his
parents as Father: Samson LEAF Mother: Neome Ain
Is there any way that Neome and Alca could be the same?
From: Jeanne Gold <jeannegold@iname.com>
In the case of the grandmother's name, 2 possible reasons for the
difference:
(1) she was named Alca Ain but Americanized her name to Neome Ain
(2) the death certificate is in error -- remember it's done by a
grandchild who may have misremembered the information
There's at least one other explanation.....the grandmother had two given
names, which was quite common (just as it is today). She might have been
Neomi Alca Ain or Alca Neomi Ain, and each child's death certificate simply
gave one of her names.

I was just in NYC on Wednesday, and visited Flushing Cemetery, near 46th
St.in Flushing To my knowledge it isn't a Jewish cemetery We took the
subway to the end of the line, Main St. Flushing, and a bus >from there.
The bus driver said there were two cemeteries on his route, so ours was
one of them.

Flushing Cemetery has a pretty iron and brick double gate, and is on a
wedge-shaped corner. Maybe it's the one you remember. You can phone them

Re: No Passenger List-No Index Entry #general

Plutsk <plutsk@...>
 

I submitted a request for the ship passenger arrival records of Max
A.HARRIS (
--snip-- Max, a native of Tauregan, Russia, arrived in Portland, Maine (port of
entry)
from Antwerp, Belgium on
April 14, 1905 aboard the Canada- Dominion Line.
NARA sent me a form letter with the following checked off: "We were
unable to lcoate the passenger list for the ship listed and/or hae found
no entry in the index for the requested passenger."
Did you submit your request for the surname HARRIS, Stacy? It's likely,
or at least quite possible, that the name Max arrived under was something
different. I'd suggest you get the passenger list at an LDS Family History
Center and search it yourself, looking for someone with a similar name who
came >from the right place and was of of the right sex, age, etc. Who the
person was coming to stay with could help you pin him down too. But
sometimes what's on naturalization papers is just wrong.

Dear Genners,

Carol Rider wrote:
Would anyone be familiar with the given name of Nusia? This relative's
Hebrew name was Chana Feiga and she was known in the United States as
Anna. But on many of the older pictures I have of her as a child in
Russia the name Nusia is written, and her tombstone says "Nusia Anna
BROUNOFF.">>>>>>

I have a strong filling that the name Nusia is a nickname to the Hebrew
name Chana. Carol Rider mention it that her relative was calling Chana
Feige. And why Chana to the name Nusia ? I know that the name Chanush
(Cheit - nun - Vav - Shin) is a diminutive form of Chana. Also is the name
Chanusha a diminutive form to Chana. >from Chanush or Chanusha is the way
very short to the name Chanushia and >from it to the name Nusia. I don't
