Can you help name a baby? (Cedar Park Cemetery, Paramus NJ, lookup request) #general

Renee Steinig
 

My cousin, who is "due" very soon, might name the baby for her great-aunt Hilde,
but she doesn't know Hilde's Hebrew name. Unfortunately, I don't have it in my
records. I do know that Hilde -- born 1912 in Huenfeld, Germany -- was
originally Brunhilde.

We're hoping that a Hebrew name is on Hilde's gravestone at Cedar Park Cemetery
in Paramus, NJ. I'd go there myself but can't for two weeks, and I'm afraid the
baby won't wait! Is there anyone out there who lives near Cedar Park and would
be willing to take a look? I can provide details, including the exact location
of the grave.

Thank you.

Joseph LEVINE aka Joe EVANS #general

Marilyn Robinson
 

My great uncle, Joseph LEVINE, was an actor: vaudeville, comedy, song & dance.
I have found newspaper clippings >from his time in vaudeville, as part of the
2-man act Fox & EVANS, (about 1908-1926?), on Fulton Postcards. There was also
a clipping indicating that the two men purchased a rollerskating rink in
Richfield Springs, NY in November, 1932. They also appeared on stage again in
May, 1932 at the Carleton Theatre in NY, according to the Long Island Sunday
Press.

His WWI Draft registration was in Chicago, although his residence was with his
sister, Esther TAUFIELD, in the Bronx (1216 Hoe Av). The card showed that he
was a performer working for Western Vaudeville. He was born in May 1885.

I have not been able to find any records for Joe beyond November, 1932. Does
anyone have any other ideas?

Thank you,
Marilyn Robinson

Josef SILBERBERG - Froendenberg and Washington #usa

Mike Redel <redel.mike@...>
 

Dear Gersigs

I am searching for Josef SILBERBERG. He was born 14.02.1844 in
Froendenberg (Germany) and died 28.08.1935 in Washington. 1865 he
emigrated to the USA. in the years 1875, 1912, 1914 he visited
Germany. I know also that he was a printer. I found out that he was
single in 1900 (Census). 1912 and 1914 he was married (passanger
list). When did he married and whom? I know the date when he died from
his tomb. I never found an official papier, because I hope to find
something about his wife or parents.

Thank you, Regards, Mike Redel - Unna Germany

Understanding a Nazi era German document - no translation needed ViewMate #germany

Tamar Amit <ta.genealogy@...>
 

Dear siggers,

A few months ago I saw some documents that start out with this page. I
assume it was connected in some way to the Nazis wanting to have a
"profile" of the Jewish population in Germany.
I have uploaded one such "opening page" to ViewMate and would be happy
to hear >from any of you who have encountered them or know what they
were, would they exist for any Jewish-German citizen, and so on.

The image for BECKER Itzig (born in Tuchel and living at the time in
Berlin) is at:

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application or

Many thanks, Tamar Amit in Israel
