The Baltic water route was certainly not as intensively used as were the
ports of Bremen and Hamburg, but they were nevertheless available and used.

Glasgow and Liverpool were ports >from which Jews left for the New World

Newcastle. They may have come as passengers on freighters.

An alternate route migh have been through Hull (Kingston on Hull) which, i
think, had connections to German ports. The most common points of entry
were Harwich (>from Antwerp and Amnsterdam) and >from Belgium and France to
Folkestone and Dover (a one-hour crossing). They got to the Europen coast

Re: GBA cemetery in Minneapolis #general

Sigma Alpha Mu Fraternity <sammy@...>
 

On Thu, 10 Dec 1998, Paul Fisher asked:

Does anyone know about the GBA or OBA cemetery in Minneapolis?
What do the initials stand for? Where is it located?
"OBA" stands for Order B'rith Abraham, which was the name of a local
fraternal society and also of the cemetery that it owned and operated. The
cemetery has been known as the Minneapolis Jewish Cemetery since 1921 and
today is owned and operated by the non-profit Minneapolis Jewish Cemetery
Association.

Minneapolis Jewish Cemetery is located in the southwest quadrant of the
intersection of West 70 1/2 Street and Penn Avenue South in the city of
Richfield, Minnesota, a first-ring Minneapols suburb. It completely
surrounds the separate Gemelus Chesed Cemetery and is adjacent to United
Hebrew Brotherhood and B'nai Emet cemeteries. Minneapolis Jewish is
frequently known as the "Litvak cemetery," while United Hebrew Brotherhood
is known as the "Russisher cemetery" and B'nai Emet as the "Rumanisher
cemetery."

It is my understanding that Gemelus Chesed was the original cemetery at the
site and that Minneapolis Jewish, United Hebrew Brotherhood, B'nai Emet all
were created out of land originally belonging to Gemelus Chesed. It is
said that Minneapolis Jewish Cemetery was established in 1889, but this may
refer to the founding date of Gemelus Chesed Cemetery.

Need a researcher in Poland #general

MMBegun@...
 

Can anyone recommend a researcher in Poland with whom they've had a
positive experience? Meaning -- they were efficient and produced results
for a reasonable fee. We need a competent researcher with access to vital
records for Czemierniki, or at the Warsaw archives (for Czemierniki) for
years 1913 through 1922. A newly discovered relative in Israel is putting
the finishing touches on his research, which corresponds to mine.

Please make your recommendations to me privately, at MMBegun@aol.com.

Thanks -- Mila Begun in New York (MMBegun@aol.com)

Researching:
BEFELER, GRACHNIAK -- Czemierniki, Deblin, Radzyn Poland
GOLDBERG -- Lukow, Parczew, Miedzyrzec Podlaski, Poland
ORLIK, TALANSKY, BRODSKY, ELLIS, YELLASHIVETSKY -- Talnoye, Ukraine

The Mormons have copies of most of the Great Synagogue records. The
earliest ones are in Hebrew, then they become a combination of Hebrew and
English.

Good luck.
