"butcher" #general

Dan Goodman <dsgood@...>
 

One Yiddish word for "butcher" (there may be others) is fleischhacker.

Note: My original message on this was rejected for having too much quoted
material. Therefore, I'm playing it safe by not quoting _anything_ this
time.

Searching David ADLER descendants #general

Mark and Debbie Burr <ember@...>
 

I am seeking to trace my great grandparents in the US (for now). I have
David Adler's naturalization certificate dated 1906. It says he came
from Rumania. He settled first in the Pittsburgh Pennsylvania area. He
married Ethel (no one in the family knows her maiden name or if she had
a different first name before living in the US). They were the parents
of 5 sons and 1 daughter. They eventually moved to Michigan. David had
at least one brother Isidor who owned a small store in Pittsburgh.
Unfortunately I have no living relatives who remember any of this so am
starting >from scratch. Anyone else researching this family, I would love
to hear >from you. Deborah Burr

Re: Mt Carmel #general

Corin Goodwin <corin@...>
 

You can call Mt. Carmel. The number and address is: Cypress Hills Rd
Flushing, NY (718) 366-5900.
I have done this for all of the cemetery's I have relatives in. They
will provide the exact grave locations, and in a few instances, they
can take pictures for you.
I have been in touch with Mt. Carmel by phone and snailmail. They gave
me lots of info by snail mail, but would not take photos for me.

Searching JACOBS #general

suzanne henig <mountolive@...>
 

I am posting this for a friend >from South Africa, Jeanette Jacobs.
She is searching for information about her relatives and knows next to
nothing.
1. Her mother, Dinah Jacobs, was born on Commercial Road in London and
emigrated with her parents and siblings to South Africa when she was
eleven. Her mother died recently in a Hebrew Home in Johannesberg in her
88th year. Jeanette believes there are relatives still in London.

2. Her father, Abraham Jacobs(no retlation to her mother), was born in
Pretoria, South Africa and died as a young man in 1943 when Jeanette was
three. Her parents married in 1939. She believes he had siblings, but she
knows nothing whatever about him.

Any information about these people or their relatives would be greatly
appreciated as she has only one living relative she knows of, an older
institutionalized sister with ms.

Military Personnel Records #general

Pennyu@...
 

Just a point of information. I sent away for my father's military personnel
records using information >from a JewishGen message. The answer that I
received was that the records needed to answer my inquiry were not in their
files due to the fact that records at the National Personnel Records Center in
St. Louis, MO as of July 12, 1973 were in the area that suffered damage in
the fire on that date and may have been destroyed. The message also stated
that alternate records sources exist which often contain information that can
be used to reconstruct service record data lost in the fire. However, in my
father's case complete personnel/medical records could not be reconstructed.
All I received was a Certification Of Military Service which contained the
dates of his service, his rank and the fact that he received an honorable
discharge.

Rechtman <rechtman@...>
 

My grandfather came to NY >from
Kalvaria, Lithuania
Could this be Kalvaria, Poland? At some point in early 1900 the Kalwaria town
was part of Lithuania... Have you confirmed the country?

Just a thought...

Found my long-lost cousin . . .! #general

Candice Bradley and Daniel Byrne <djbyrne@...>
 

At the risk of writing a "Me, too" message (I know -- it's even less
cool than posting a surname querry) I'd just like to point out that,
like Ben Elton, I have benefitted enormously >from the mere *mention* of
a surname in a JewishGen post.

Over the past couple of weeks I've heard >from all sorts of Nebenzahls
all over the world. I don't know what to do with all the information
and links (and new correspondents) I'm getting. I'm thrilled.

But the neatest thing happened today. I heard >from a Nebenzahl I have
not seen nor communicated with in 30 years: my second cousin from
Brasil, with whom I spent an entire summer way back when . . . She was
a dear friend, and finding her again is priceless. This alone has made
JewishGen worthwhile.

Greater Hecht family #general

Shluchim2 <shluchim2@...>
 

To Whom It May Concern:

My great-great-grandfather, Rabbi Tzvi Elimelech ("Hersh Meilich") Hecht OBM,
came to New York in the 1880s, >from White Russia. I don't know if he was from
Shinov proper, but he was a chasid of Rabbi Yecheskel of Shinov, the Shinover
Rebbe.

He had two sons: Shea (short for Yehoshua--not Irish!), who became known as Sam
in New York City (he ran a dry-goods store on the Lower East Side), and
Yitzchok Meir (or something like that--I don't recall his name offhand).

If anyone knows anything about my family's origins, or if you are related to
me, please contact me at your earliest convenience.

Sincerely,
