Location of New York cemetery New Montefiore? #general

Trudy Barch
 

Hi genners,

I found a relative buried at New Montefiore Cemetery Pinelawn, New York in
1997 according to the obit in the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

When I looked at their website, it says that the cemetery is in West Babylon
and Farmingdale????

So where is it? Pinelawn, West Babylon, Farmingdale???

Thank you,

Trudy Barch, Chicago

Seeking KUPERSTOCK immigrations - Radoskewicz > NY > Canton Ohio #general

Barbara Zimmer
 

Several KUPERSTOCK (spelling varies) brothers immigrated >from
Radiskovitch/Radoskewicz Russia between the late 1890s and 1910 and
ended up in Canton Ohio.

Max Cooper's naturalization papers say he was born in Radishkovitch
in 1882 (birth date unreliable) and that he sailed >from Liverpool
to Halifax and then took the train to Boston, arriving about 9
March 1896. So far I have not been able to find his arrival, nor
his whereabouts until 1904 when he marries Yetta BECK in NYC.

Jacob Cooper says on several censuses that he arrived in 1903. I am
apt to believe this date because his wife, Esther, arrived in June
1903 in Baltimore with a two-day-old daughter who was born at sea.
(Hence Jacob left Russia some time after his wife became pregnant.)
When his wife arrives, she says she is headed to her husband Jankel
Kuperstock in Canton Ohio.

The third brother, Joe (sometimes shown as Joseph) says in 1910 that
he arrived in 1905. In the 1910 census, he is living with his brother
Max and Max's family in NYC. Joe's wife, Judashe arrives in September
1910 with her three-year-old daughter, Sore. Either Joe mis-reported
his date of arrival, or he went back to Europe sometime about 1908
and then returned to the US.

One possible candidate for either Joe or Jacob is Jochonowo Kuperstoch
from Radoskewicz who departs >from Hamburg 25 May 1903. This man says
he is single. He is recorded as arriving in NYC on 8 June 1903 with
the name Tochonav KUERSTOCH.

Hence I am seeking entry data for:

Max Kuperstock - before 1904.
Jankel/Jacob Kuperstock between 1902 and 1903.
Joe Kuperstock before 1910. (One or two trips)

Jenny WEISS (married names: PINKUS, FABIAN, LEVY) #germany

Alexander Watson <a.watson.genas@...>
 

Dear all

On a recent visit to Weissensee Cemetery, Berlin, Germany, a friend,
Axel Hueber, took photos of several tombs of members of my family.

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&;GRid=153369178

One particular inscription on the tomb of my geat-great Uncle, Alfred
FABIAN, born Neuwedell 24 March 1879, died Berlin, 11 May 1936
surprised us, it is as follows:

Dem Andenken unserer geliebten Mutter Jenny Levy verw. Fabian geb.
Weiss. Geb 23.2.1880. Ermordet 8.12.1944
In English:
In memory of our beloved mother Jenny Levy widowed Fabian nee Weiss.
Born 23/2/1880. Murdered 8/12/1944.
I know that Alfred was married twice, I have not found any information
suggesting that he had children with his first wife, Ida GRAFSNICK.
His second wife was a divorcee noted as being Jenny PINKUS, geb. WEISS
born in Berlin. The copy of their 1917 wedding certificate has a note
in the margin indicating that Jenny Weiss married 3 times, the last
time being in 1941.

I have contacted Weissensee, and they told me that the only thing that
they know is that the inscription was added to Alfred's headstone in
1947.
In all likelihood, the people who added the inscription were children
of Jenny's first marriage, and would have the surname PINKUS and would
have been born before 1917.

I would be very grateful for any information that anyone might have on
this subject. Kind regards,

Alexander Watson, Genas (near Lyon) France a.watson.genas@gmail.com

Barbara WENGLINSKI: no original name, no place of origin, no family tree #general

Melody Amsel-Arieli <nomietai@...>
 

"Between January and March 1941, Jews >from smaller communities to
the west of Warsaw were deported to the Warsaw ghetto. Between
April and July 1942, Jews >from the nearby towns east of Warsaw,
from Germany, and >from German-occupied areas of western Poland
were deported there" (http://www.ushmm.org/)

Just before the 1943 Warsaw Ghetto Jewish Uprising, a young couple,
possibly freedom fighters, convinced a German soldier to smuggle
their nine month old daughter, born in the Ghetto, out to safety.
She arrived in a white baby carriage, with a note draped around her
neck reading Barbara WENGLINSKI.

During the war, she passed >from hand to hand, family to family, each
time assigned a new identity. Her young parents evidently perished,
along with all other immediate relatives. Afterwards, no one claimed her.

According to DNA tests, she has many distant relatives (myself included),
with roots mainly in northern Poland. She has not been able to verify
actual relationships, however.

My question:
In your research, have you come across family members who left
Poland/Germany for the US before the war, leaving a marriageable cousin
or a married couple behind? Could they have been deported to the Warsaw
Ghetto?

Extensive research has been done - to no avail.
Contact me privately to learn more details.

Having neither *name* nor *place of origin*,
she has *no family tree*.

Suggestions, leads, and ideas are also appreciated.

BUECHLER, DIAMANT of Filakovo; BREUER of Lucenec, Slovakia #general

Alyson Breuer
 

Dear Genners:

Thanks to the heroic research of USHMM I have a little more
information on the Hungarian BREUERs of Lucenec, Slovakia, in
particular on Laszlo/Ladislav DIAMANT, the uncle by marriage of my
husband.

He was a pharmacist and met a brutal end in 1944, executed in
Hungary with a group of physicians and pharmacists of whose enforced
labor detail he was a member. The upside is that the names of his
parents and birthplace emerged >from the fog: Lorenz Vavro DIAMANT
and Theresia BUECHLER of Fulek/Filakovo, Slovakia, a small town not
far >from Lucenec (HQ for the only BREUERs we can be sure of).
He married Maria BREUER, my husband's aunt and was the pharmacist
of record in the pharmacy there owned by her father, Otto BREUER.
[Interestingly, a plaque announces that the same building on the main
square has been in continuous use as a pharmacy since 1732!]

However, in following the trail, I came across a Rabbi Dr
Shemuel/Sandor/Alexander BUECHLER, b.1869, who later moved from
Filakovo to Keszthely and met the same fate at Auschwitz as his Jewish
congregation. But given that he merits an entry in Wikipedia and the
small size of the Jewish community in Filakovo, I cannot help but
speculate that Theresia must have been related (sister, cousin?),
since she and her husband would have been born roughly around the same
time as he (1870).

My present question is this: does anyone else know of this
Rabbi/historian/educator or his family? It would be terrific if
Lorenz Vavro DIAMANT's name also rang a bell and I look forward to
hearing some -- any -- news ... Slovakia in general requires
patience and my progress with anyone there is at a standstill.

Thanks in advance for any light you can shed on this family!

Yizkor Book Project, October 2015 #latinamerica

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

As always, there is quite a lot to tell you about the activities of the
Yizkor Book Project over the past month. To begin with, no less than three
books were published by our very own Yizkor Books in Print (YBIP) Project
and they are:

- "Memorial Book of Bolekhov " (Bolekhiv, Ukraine)
- "Rokitno-Wolyn and Surroundings; Memorial Book and Testimony" (Rokytne,
Ukraine)
- "The 51st Brigade; The History of the Jewish Partisan Group >from the
Slonim Ghetto (Slonim, Belarus)

To say that this is a remarkable achievement is a definite understatement
and I do sincerely thank Joel Alpert and his dedicated volunteer team for
preparing these and a grand total of 42 books that have already been brought
to print. Please be aware that apart >from these books being printed as hard
copies, the books themselves are still freely available in the Yizkor Book
site, including English books that were presented to us to be published. For
instance, the "51st Brigade" book noted above is also listed and available
in the Yizkor Book Index: http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html

More and more are people realizing that to facilitate the translation of a
particular Yizkor Book, the recommended way is to set up a JewishGen
Translations Fund to pay for the professional translation of the book. The
fund enables those people interested in the book >from a particular
community to donate towards the common goal of having it translated and for
US citizens, the donations to JewishGen are tax deductible.

During October, a further new Translations Fund was set up for the Biala
Podlaska (Poland) Yizkor Book and I do invite people with connections to
this community or any of the other community book listed in our
JewishGen-erosity
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
to help support these important projects financially for the benefit of
many, now and for generations to come.

And now for the changes and additions that were carried out in the Yizkor
Book Project over October.

During this last month we have added in 3 new projects:

- Davyd-Haradok, Belarus (David Horodoker Memorial book)

copies, the books themselves are still freely available in the Yizkor Book
site, including English books that were presented to us to be published. For
instance, the "51st Brigade" book noted above is also listed and available
in the Yizkor Book Index: http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html

More and more are people realizing that to facilitate the translation of a
particular Yizkor Book, the recommended way is to set up a JewishGen
Translations Fund to pay for the professional translation of the book. The
fund enables those people interested in the book >from a particular
community to donate towards the common goal of having it translated and for
US citizens, the donations to JewishGen are tax deductible.

During October, a further new Translations Fund was set up for the Biala
Podlaska (Poland) Yizkor Book and I do invite people with connections to
this community or any of the other community book listed in our
JewishGen-erosity
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
to help support these important projects financially for the benefit of
many, now and for generations to come.
