Re: your thoughts/ideas/suggestions

Is there any possibility that one of the tombstones. used his
middle name instead of his first name ? In my maternal grandparents
wedding record my grandfather used his middle name.
(Marriage in Lithuania).

Re: your thoughts/ideas/suggestions

It is possible that the person who arranged the burial or  ordered the tombstones did not know.
I see that in my father’s uncles burial permits 

Have you found a death certificate.

Does the cemetery know who the funeral home was or the tombstone supplier

Is there a funeral home in Minneapolis that Jews patronized and do they have records

2020 Conference in San Diego #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Hello everybody,

You all know that our next Jewish Genealogical Conference is going to be in San Diego, California next summer.

I want to encourage you to come and enjoy a great environment of genealogical researchers who are trying to get more details about their families, but also to help others.  As I mentioned many many times in order to advance your research you may need to help others.  Remember, we are all connected, and people at the conference are trying hard to help others.  There are many classes for beginners, and advance researchers, translation services, mentoring services.

Our Bessarabia SIG always has a good presentation at the conference.  You can read about our last 8 years at these conference!  You could find texts of presentations, even audio discussions from some sessions at this site:

https://www.jewishgen.org/bessarabia/PTM_ArticleList.asp?attid=16&ord=D

Also from last conference I started to have personal one-on-one consultations with our members. I believe these meetings were very productive. 

If you are planning to come, or even considering such possibility, please let me know.  We need to plan our meetings, accordingly.

I am also asking our members to share their research, let people at the conference to know about your methods, success stories.  Maybe someone can let us know about Jewish history, genealogy of a district or town of Bessarabia, like Khotin or Soroki for example.

I would be glad to help you if you have any questions.

I wish all the best, and hopefully we meet at the conference in San Diego.

All the best,

 

Yefim Kogan

Re: Seeding Jerome M. SACHS and descendants

Sharon Korn <mssrkorn@...>
 

Previously I wrote trying to get in touch with the family of Jerome M. SACHS, grandson of Jacob JACOBSON.  It has been suggested that it would be helpful to provide more information on Jerome, to help identify him. 

 

Jerome was born in Brooklyn, NY, in 1928 or 1929 to Nathan and Mary SACHS.  Mary was the daughter of Jacob and Bella.  Jerome had an older sister Elaine, born in about 1924, and a younger brother named Stanley.  In the 1930 and 1940 US Censuses, the family is listed as living at Mansfield Place and 24th Street, which were actually the same street under different names.  In the 1930 Census, the surname looks like SACK.

 

Please respond privately.  Thanks.

Re: your thoughts/ideas/suggestions

What were the father's names on the tombstone?

I know of one case where a brother and sister seemed to have different father's names in Hebrew script on their tombstones.
But, it turned out that they were the same father. One tombstone listed the father's Yiddish name and the other one listed his Hebrew name. Itsko Leib  vs Yitzak Aryeh

Jewish Genealogical Society New York November 24 program

Program:"One of the Greatest Untold Stories of World War II"" A Decade Long Quest After my Father and a Quarter Million Other Holocaust Refugees

Speaker: Mikhal Dekel, author of Tehran Children: A Holocaust Refugee Odyssey (W.W.Norton, 2019)

Sunday, November 24, 2019 at 2 p.m.

at the Center for Jewish History, 15 West 16th St. New York

It is a largely unknown and astonishing fact that most Polish Jews who escaped Nazi extermination survived as refugees in Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Iran and India. Mikhal Dekel, whose then thirteen-year-old father was such a refugee, will share her decade long archival research and global travel, retracing their 13,000 mile route. This route began with deportations to gulags and "Special Settlements" in the Soviet interior and continued on with collective settlements in the Soviet Central Asian Republics, refugee camps in Iran and India, and kibbutzim in Mandatory Palestine. Dekel tells a story at once intimate and historically sweeping, conversing along the way with Polish nationalists, Russian oligarchs and human rights activists, Iranians, Korean Uzbeks and Israelis, and painting a story of interlinked and divergent histories, of death and survival, of hospitality and cruelty, and of 20th and 21st century politics.

Mikhal Dekel is Professor of English and Comparative Literature at the City College and the CUNY Graduate Center and Director of the Rifkind Center for Humanities and the Arts.She is the author of several books and her articles, translations and blogs have appeared in many journals.

This meeting is co-sponsored by the Center for Jewish History.

Admission: Free for JGS and CJH members; $5 for guests and general.
