Searching: BEZOVIC, Zheludok, Belarus/Odessa/Scotland #general

Judy Boxer
 

Trying to locate any descendants of BEZOVIC (BEZOVYS, BAZOVICH, etc),
originally >from the Lida district in Belarus, the town of Zheludok.

My ggf Meir Yitzchak WEINSTEIN (d.c.1899), father Abram, may have originally been
BEZOVIC. He had 3 brothers. The family story is that one brother may have gone to
Odessa, and that one brother went to Scotland. We think the brothers were Rubin,
Berko, Shliomo (born 1840s/1850s).

Thank you for any suggestions.

Yiddish names to American names in U.S. records #general

Shari Kantrow
 

Good Afternoon All,
I have been stumped on the following mystery since I started my research years ago.
Perhaps someone can help me.My great-grandmother's sister Hinda KARPET (b. abt
1870)in Kamenets-Podolskiy was married to someone named Chaskel (Wiener ?). They
lived in Brooklyn, NY on President St. until the 1960s. I am unaware if they had
any children. My mother has no idea what their American names were, so finding them
in Brooklyn has been a bit tricky.
I would love any suggestions. Thanks in advance for your help.

Submitting corrections for transcription errors in online databases #general

Judith Elam
 

On-line databases are wonderful resources, but often have errors in transcription.
It makes it harder, if not impossible, for a researcher to pull up these records.

With one particular database that is widely used, I have made it a habit of
submitting corrections every time I run into such an error, even if the
records do not belong to my own relatives. I have submitted hundreds of
corrections. You can do this very easily by submitting the correct version
under "Add alternate information".
On a few records you will not see "Add alternate information", and then I
submit the correction under "Report issue" located directly below, and
posting the link to the incorrect transcription. The database is updated
every few months, at which time the corrections become searchable.

May I suggest that other researchers also submit corrections, so that these
databases can be as accurate as possible. This way, we not only help
ourselves, but others too, in their research.

Looking for family of Nekhama Bukhner in Israel - Need Hebrew to English translation #general

Danielle Weiner
 

I have just found a Page of Testimony at Yad Vashem for my father's
first cousin, Fania Blitz (nee Shibovsky) >from Vilna. Sadly, she died
in Auschwitz in 1943 at about 38 yrs. of age. The person who
contributed the POT (an acquaintance of my cousin) is named Nekhama
Bukhner and is apparently >from Israel. I believe this is a woman,
even though she is listed as a son on her father's POT.

The link to this POT is :
http://yvng.yadvashem.org/nameDetails.html?language=en&;itemId=316750&ind=1

I would like to know if she gives an address or at least a city in
Israel where I can begin looking for her or her family.

There are two more POTs submitted by Nekhama that may have more
information on them:
http://yvng.yadvashem.org/nameDetails.html?language=en&;itemId=328231&ind=8

and

Re: Sing Sing Execution: Death Certificate & Burial---An Ongoing Mystery! #general

Barbara Mannlein <bsmannlein@...>
 

Using the Mt Carmel search site
(http://www.mountcarmelcemetery.com/search) I checked for OSTRANSKY, OSHANSKY, to
no avail. I even checked just OSH, OST as surnames. I checked just by first name
Hyman also without results. I even did a search by year only.

BTW, that site covers both Mt Carmel and New Mount Carmel.

I saw several names with the world (remains) after them, so it seems that Mt Carmel
accepted cremations.

Have you called the cemetery or just relied on the on-line search site? It's online
records are not completed.

We were trying to ascertain where Hyman was buried. We finally received a death
certificate copy >from Albany this week, indicating that he was buried in Mt.
Carmel Cemetery in New York, on June 17, 1918. However, the mystery continues to
grow!! Mt. Carmel has no record of Hyman Ostransky's burial!!

Does anyone know of the town of Rilsk,Russia? #belarus

I have found two references to the town of R I l s k , Russia in
Declarations of Intent by two brothers of my Grandmother Eve Rosen. My
Grandmother Eva Rosen married my Grandfather Lieb Kopoloff who was living in
Vetka( near Gomel ) Belarus around 1900. I believe the Rosen family could
not have lived that far away, but can find no reference to this town.
Anyone have any idea about this town.

Film: ABSENT is going to be presented on Thursday, 10:30-11:45am,
Director: Matthew Mishory.

The film is about past and present of a Moldovan village which used to be a
Jewish agricultural colony. Writer and director Matthew Mishory will present
the film "ABSENT" to us.

In July 1941, the village was the site of an unimaginable atrocity.
Seventy-four years later, few speak clearly or honestly about what happened.
ABSENT is a cinematic portrait of the ghost village of Marculesti, its
current inhabitants, and their very complex relationship to their own
history. Working entirely on location, writer/director Matthew Mishory
documents one of Europe's poorest, most remote, and least-visited places.
Produced by Sabin Dorohoi, Edward Singletary, Jr., and Randall Walk. A
Romania-Switzerland-US co-production.

This film helps us to understand why we need to preserve our Jewish Heritage
in Bessarabia, why we need to photograph tombstones, cleanup the cemeteries.
