Henry Cantor - In Memorium #general

MS ANN RABINOWITZ <PQUA32A@...>
 

The Kupishok SIG wishes to extend condolences to Linda Cantor, her
brother and family on the passing of their father, Henry Cantor.
Over the years, Mr. Cantor has played a vital role in the discussion
of family and shtetl, the gathering of information, and finally in
the development of our Kupishok cemetery database.

His staunch encouragement and support, companionship and love will be
missed by his friends and family alike. In this light, we would like
to name our cemetery database, the Henry Cantor Cemetery Database, in
his memory.

It is hoped that this memorial will encourage others to participate
with their parents or with their children to make our Kupishok
ShtetLink Site and other activities on JewishGen and the Litvak SIG a
real family effort as Henry always did.

May his name be a blessing to all who remember him.

Does anyone know where the records for Jews who lived in Vetka after WWI
might be? And for small villages near Vetka (Zheleznik particularly)?

Russian Characters - Teraspol listing #general

Arline and Sidney Sachs <sachs@...>
 

Miriam Weiner just sent me 55 printed pages of names of burials in Teraspol,
Transnistra region between Ukraine and Moldova. Unfortunately the names are
written in Russian Characters, so I need some volunteers to retype the
information. There are basically 6 columns of data:
cemetery plot location
3 columns of words which I assume are first name, last name and ?
date of birth
date of death
If someone can scan this data and then can make it change that would be a
great help,
but I don't know any way to do that.

I hope someone can type this to help the cemetery project.

Thanks, Arline

Need translation of Russian language birth certificates #general

HNRosen@...
 

I recently received >from the USC in Olkusz, Poland, copies of birth
certificates, possibly for my two maternal grandparents.

I e-mailed the JewishGen translation service, with this request, but received
no response.

Can I send photocopies to someone for a quick summary of their contents?

problem with mapquest maps #general

Need help with a problem printingmaps >from the shtetlseeker/mapquest.
When I click on the coordinates after finding a shtetl, I get a map with
a red star designating the shtetl--this map is surrounded by all sorts
of browser graphics which I do not wish to print. When I click on
"printable map," I get a map sans all the browser graphics, but also
sans the identifying red star. Does anyone know how I can get the red
star to print?

Does anyone know if there is a way to find out where someone is buried.
I know the names and city >from the census; but I do not know where the

local cemeteries will they check their files??

Thanks

ukaraine and birth records #general

Sanford Skansky <sanford@...>
 

First of all has any body heard of Shetl by the name of Dokczyce or
something similar. The peson that told me about this shetl said it was
near Minsk. She said it might be Polish. Not being up on my geography
I assume Minks is close to the polish border.

My other question is about birth records. My grandfather was born in
1889 in Nikolaeve in the Ukraine. Did they even keep birth records back
then and if so would they still be there and how would one obtain a
birth certificate if there is one.

Dear Jose:

. I can't find it either. We were always told my grandfather, Jacob Freuer,
came >from there
( Stavisk, Stawiski), and it was close to Lomza and since when he came to
US he joined Ostrolenka Society, suppose that was "largest" town near by
with benevelant organization. Others >from JRI-Poland said town of Stawiski
was completely obliterated by both WWs and nothing is left. If you find
something let me know.

Is anyone aware of any LDS films for Stawiski, Poland (in

I didn't find that town listed at all among the many towns
