NARA staff personnel in Washington offered me the use of yellow
and green sheets of plastic which when placed over the screen
made the text more readable. You might try that technique.

ISRAELI GEOGRAPHY #general

IsraelP <p2o5rock@...>
 

We have a listing in 1937 for a woman whose residence
in "Shekhunat Schein." A quick glance at city maps
shows no such neighborhood in any large city today
and phone calls to the city archives in Jerusalem,
Haifa and Tel-Aviv just get blank stares. There is
no Schein in the Encyclopedia Judaica to give a
clue.

So does anyone know in which city there was (or is)
a neighborhood called Shekhunat Schein?

My paternal grandparents are buried at Bushey cemetery (just outside
London). My gf died in 1950, my gm in 1955. But Booba is nowhere near
Zayde -- apparently because my father and his brothers didn't think of
reserving the space, which strikes me as extraordinary in 1950! So my
Booba is in a completely different section in this enormous cemetery.

I feel compelled to a my "2 cents" on this subject.
In some Orthodox cemeteries men and women are not buried next to each
other. They may be buried in the same section, but in a different row.
In the old (1913-1920's and30's) section of the Tetiever Shul Cemetery
here in Cleveland, men and women are buried in alternating rows. Husbands
and wives are not buried next to each other. There are no family plots.
When visiting this cemetery this year before the Holidays (had not been
there since I was a child in the 1940's) I found my grgrandmother's grave
as well as other relatives. I must relate an interesting story.
My grandmother died in Israel in 1958, but had bought a burial plot in
Cleveland many, many years earlier. She had also bought a plot next to a
son who had died in 1930 just in case it was needed by another relative.
Although buried in Israel, she wanted a headstone here so that she would be
remembered. In her will she stated she she wanted to put the head stone on
the plot next to her son (he died at an early age). Even though the
'grave' was empty (only a headstone) the family could not use it because it
was in a mens row. There was a plot available in the row behind-----a
ladies row.
Perhaps some Orthodox cemeteries still separate men and women even in
death.

Slupia Nowa & Przytyk #general

M&M <info@...>
 

I was told that my ggf Schmuel KAMPEL, as far as we know: Slupia Nowa
(Kielce gubernia)...
was also known as Schmuel Pizityker >from the Province of Radom (Radom
gubernia).
I have not found any surname-reference to any Pizityker yet, however I
found that nearby Radom there are 2 towns named Przytyk and Przytyki.
Is it reasonable to suppose he was Schmuel ">from Przytyk" Kampel?
Are there any records online for Slupia Nowa and Przytyk?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Re: Age discrepancy #general

wyzanskyh@...
 

With regard to age discrepancies, I noticed that the women in my family
seemed to age only 7 or 8 years in each 10 year US Census interval. Also
my great-aunt put her age as 18 on arrival in the US even though she was
only 14 because she was shepherding three younger children coming to join
their father in Boston and did not want it to appear that there were four
children travelling alone.

Likewise I know of a case where someone put his age as two years younger
so that he could fit as a child into the family of his uncle who was
already in the US and thereby get around the quota.

The NYPL has microfilm reels for the NYC Marriage Indices as follows:

Reel 4 - 1902-1906

Does anyone know if there is a Reel 5? A cryptic message at the beginning
of Reel 6 indicates that something may be missing or unavailable. Thanks.
