Please note that the inscriptions >from the Bristol 3 Jewish cemeteries
(not Liverpol though) were transcribed and posted in JewishGen Web Page:

Research for ANSELL in the database, produced the matzeva of ANSELL Henry
Emanuel who died on 05-03-1841. There is the picture
of the tombstone as well.
I just wanted to draw every Jewishgenner in U.K.

Cremation and implictions for Jewish genealogoical research - a word of warning #general

Gailcopela@...
 

Thanks to all who respoonded to my query about Jewish cremation. It made for
some very lively exchanges!

There seems to be much information that we are able to obtain about our
ancestors >from burial traditions such as gravestone inscriptions, things like
a person's Hebrew name, or a person's parents' Hebrew names. Maybe even
children's names, etc. But if one is cremated and the ashes not housed in any
sort of mausoleum and not accompanied by a plaque, the sort of information we
might otherwise obtain >from a gravestone is preserved and is simply not
available for future generations.

C. Cohen, "Shtetl Finder Gazetteer".Mikilaya is not listed as a variant
and was curious what it might be.Is it Mikolayuv / Mikolayev or
Michaylovka? I hope someone can help me out there.Or could this be
somewhere else?

Re: Sending Money to Poland #general

Leonard Markowitz <priluki@...>
 

It has been several years since I have sent money to the State
Archives in Poland via their bank address. On three occasions,
I purchased a regular (not International) Postal Money Order
from my local Post Office for about 85c each. I filled-in the
Account # of the State Archives and the name and address of the
bank (as recommended by the State Archives).

On all three occasions, the Postal Money Orders were cashed and
I received the metrical information.

I might also mention that I did communicate with the State Archives
in Polish with the help of Judith frazin's book and a Polish/English
dictionary. It shouldn't be implied however, that the same results
would not have been obtained if I communicated in English. I would
not hesitate to send the initial $30, but I would also not hesitate
to set a maximum amount to be spent on the research. In order to save
money, do not request more than one photocopy of each document. The
cost of photocopying in eastern Europe is very high.

I can't guarantee that it still works that way, but I have no reason
to believe that it doesn't.

misleading initials #general

Joyce Peck <Joycekp@...>
 

Dear Jewish Genners

A word of caution to researchers: Sometimes things are not as they would
seem. This week I visited my paternal grandmother's grave for the first
time. A beautiful stone had been erected in the late 1930s giving her
name as Libby G. Kirsner. Had I not known her full name in advance I
might have thought her maiden name began with a 'G.' But I know the 'G'
is for Gussie, her middle name, and her maiden name was Finesilver.

Searching: Hinda and Sam SUSSER #general

Byrnea <byrnea@...>
 

I am searching for the family of Hinda & Sam Susser. Hinda's maiden name was
Goldberg and she had a brother Meyer. Hinda & Sam had two daughters: Bella
who married Mark and Esther who married Nat. Either one or both of these
families lives in California. Hinda & Sam would be deceased by now, but it is
possible that their children and/or their families would still be around. My
mother (who is still living) is the daughter of Meyer & Anne Goldberg.
If you can help, please email me. Thanks so much.

Re: Citizenship Information - Minnesota Historical Society #general

Marjorie Rosenfeld <marjorie.rosenfeld@...>
 

Regarding your fruitless search for citizenship papers for
your husband's father, I don't know whether his going to live with his
father in St. Paul when he arrived in this country would have automatically
made him a citizen though I doubt it. But in your search for his papers,
did you try the Library of the Minnesota Historical Society? I understand
that's where the naturalization records are for Minnesota naturalizations
that took place in state or local (not Federal district) courts. My
grandfather was a rabbi in St. Paul and, according to the 1920 US Census,
was naturalized in 1919. I didn't turn up anything by writing to the
National Archives in Kansas City, where the Federal district court records
are for that time period. But I'm now awaiting three microfilm rolls with
indexes to naturalization records ordered through Inter-Library Loan from
the Minnesota Historical Society Library. If you haven't tried there, the
address is: 345 Kellogg Boulevard West, Minneapolis, MN 55102. It may
take a while; I've been waiting for about six weeks now. Good luck!
