Hi David,

This question was discussed here in March. David Shapiro of Jerusalem
explained as follows:

>The oldest, the Shnipeshuk cemetery, was destroyed by the communists
in order to build
>a sports center. All that remains there is a monument in several
>languages commemorating the former cemetery. (The grave of the Vilna
>Gaon and others that were buried in his "ohel" were transferred to the
>new cemetery).

>In the St. Petersburg library there is a manuscript with a map of this
>cemetery showing the location of all the graves, and a microfilm copy is
>available in the National Library in Jerusalem.

>The second cemetery was also destroyed to build a non-sectarian funeral
>building. There are still some graves on hills around the building.
>There is also a monument built >from tombstones, many of which I
>understand had been used in building.

>The third, newest cemetery is still in use. It is here that the grave of
>the Vilna Gaon is now found.

I know >from my previous correspondence with you that you live in
Israel. Perhaps you could locate the microfilm transcript in the
National Library in Jerusalem. It would be wonderful if you could add
it to the JOWBR!

ViewMate translation request - Napoleonic French used in Germany #germany

RsH <robert.heuman@...>
 

I've posted a vital record in French for which I need a translation. It
is on ViewMate at the following address ...

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM47983

The document was created in Napoleonic French when the west bank of the
Rhine was part of France and I need a translation of it that is as
accurate as possible. The date used, which I cannot read, is that used
by France under Napoleon, and I need that converted to a standard date
as well... The individual is my 2nd Great Grandfather and he was born in
1801 [as far as I know]. I do NOT know the names of his parents, which
might also be on this document. I may well also be wrong when I name
Thur as the place of birth... It may have been Mainz.

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Thank you very much.

Cemetery in Vilnius #lithuania

דוד נ.א.
 

Hello
Does anyone know the condition of cemeteries in Vilnius?
Are there any online databases for searching one cemetery in Vilnius
apart >from the database of Jewishgen?
Are there any burial records or monuments of Vilnius are not included
already in the database of Jewishgen?
In short - I'm looking for the grave of Abraham Resnick who died in
Vilnius in 1937. It does not exist in the database of jewishgen that
contains information about 6000 graves >from one cemetery of Vilnius.
How can I look for more?
Many thanks in advance
David Nesher
