Regarding the "Chebra Anshei Ponidel Nusach HoAri Zal" Plot in the Mt.

My maternal grand parents are buried in this plot. As far as I know
neither of them was >from Ponedel and I am sure that my gm was not a chasid.
A few weeks ago I contacted one of the present officers of the Chevra - who
told me in conversation that many of the people who joined Ansche Ponendel
were not >from Ponodel. Unfortunately the records of the chevra are not
available for the period I was interested in.

My husband came across a wonderful book while doing some history
reading. It lists the names of all Jewish soldiers who fought in the
Civil War, North and South, and where they are buried. The book is Mel
Young's WHERE THEY LIE: SOMEONE SHOULD SAY KADDISH, published 1991 by
University Press of America inc., 4720 Boston Way, Lanham, MD 20706. It
was still in print last year when he was able to buy it through one of
the major book store chains.

More accurately the NY Worlds Fair of 1939 was also 1940.
There was also one in the early 1960's maybe 1964.

Mission impossible Hebrew text gravestone Del Valle #general

Rene <106141.360@...>
 

Dear readers
David Salom Del Valle ( 1702- 1774 ) was burried in Rotterdam.

I enlarged and sharpened the contrast of his gravestone which shows Hebrew
text I am not able to bring home !
Extra information : David was married to Sara de Abraham de Casseres
(Caceres)

His tombstone may be partly viewed on my homepage, see :
http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/VanWijngaarden/jewishge.htm



Below the text I could decipher for the greater part myself

Sepultura
Do Bem Aventurado
Hum... Eve Edho <-------------meaning
unknown to me
David Salom Del Valle
Faleceom Teberh

I would be very indebted to you if one of the readers would be so kind as
to take a look at this homepage and perhaps try to translate some parts
that are readable.

Metropolitan Opera Buffs: Help! #general

Steven N. Lewis <lewissn@...>
 

I am somehow related to Sophie Breslau(er), who sang with the
Metropolitan Opera around the time of the First World War. My
grandmother visited her backstage while on her honeymoon in 1916. My
Breslauer family settled in the Baltimore/Washington area, and they
emigrated >from Grossenbuseck, Hesse (not far >from Giessen) in 1845. I've
checked some general opera guides but haven't found any genealogical
leads about Sophie's life. I even found an old news story with a photo
in the NY Times but can detect no family resemblance! Any suggestions on
how to track down information about her relatives? Thanks! Nancy Breslau

Has anyone ever heard of the following clubs or associations active in
New York City in the 1920's: "The Viger Club" and "The Grand Street
Boys"? I am not certain whether these were simply social organizations
for a group of people who grew up in the same neighborhood or formal
organizations.

I checked the Italian Directory on the Internet and one of those 18 living
today also happens to be named Nicola Cantante. You should write to him and
see if he is named after your ancestor. It would be quite a coincidence
otherwise.
