Search for Herman SCHWARTZ from Suwalki #general

Naomi Leon <naomi.leon@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I am researching a man named Herman SCHWARTZ who according to the 1911 UK census
was born in Suwalki (town) in about 1877 - I am guessing he might have been called
Hersz but don't know this. I know nothing about his life prior to his arrival in
London c1901, save that he married a woman named Mary 'HERJEWEN' (probably HERUBIN
or variant) in around 1898. I don't know where Mary was >from (possibly Riga - but
she doesn't appear with him in the 1911 census) so their marriage could have taken
place anywhere.

He's proving a very difficult nut to crack and I am hoping someone with experience
of working with Suwalki records may be able to help. There are very few SCHWARTZ
records indexed on JewishGen and the Suwalki records indexed by the Mormons are
fairly gappy for this period specifically. Are there any alternative sources I
should try?

Herman never naturalised and was buried in a communal grave at Manor Park Cemetery
in London (not in the Jewish section) after his death in 1918, aged 41. Usually my
approach is to glean as much as possible >from British records before even
attempting to tackle the Polish ones, but I have little else to go on this case.
The family didnt even know the family history was Jewish so I am working >from a
blank page. It seems worth a try to approach the Suwalki records direct, given
that his birth date is given fairly consistently across different sources  although
I appreciate Suwalki could refer to the town, district or province.

Any thoughts/advice would be very gratefully received.

Kind regards,

Naomi Leon

Tiraspol Jewish Cemetery project #ukraine

Yefim Kogan
 

Hi everybody,

This is my first message >from series of two on Bessarabian Cemeteries you
will receive today.

We are finally completed the Tiraspol Jewish Cemetery project. The records
were sent to JOWBR of JewishGen and will appear in the database at some
point. In the beginning of July I also put a Final report for the project
at our website, where you can see information about the cemetery, project,
many photos, and also you will be able to browse the photos of Unknown
graves.

Number of Records - 2306 (34 names are >from Mass Grave).
Number of Unknown graves - 73
Photographs: 2103
Languages: mostly Russian, some are in Russian and Hebrew
Dates: Burials are >from end of 1930s. The cemetery was closed for
burials >from 1980, but there are graves dated in 2004.

I want to thank our great team for accomplishing this important and very
time consuming task:
Translators, transcribers:
Tsvetlana Spasova
Julia Lombardo
Dena Whitman

Translators >from Hebrew, via ViewMate. Without you many
names will be not clear.
Nathen Gabriel
Avraham Jean-Francois Malthete
Jo Mintz Selgman
David Rosen
Ofir Azrilovici
E Hershfeld

Thanks to Cantor Aryeh Finklestein for translating Hebrew
inscriptions at the Mass Grave.

Our gratitude to more than 20 people >from Bessarabia and
Ukraine SIGs who responded to request to remove swasticas >from 13 images.
You did fast a wonderful job!

Finally our appreciation to photographer, resident of
Tiraspol, Nuhim Kamenker, who made this project possible. He spent numerous
hours at the cemetery to go through bushes and grass, cleaning some
writings, making photos and re-making them if needed.

There is a second cemetery in Tiraspol where Jews were buried, and we will
start working on it in the fall of this year.

One thing I need to tell you which was NOT GOOD at all - getting donations
from you for that project. As of April of this year we collected for
Tiraspol project only $100. That is even not 10% of what we paid to our
photographer. Maybe many donated after April, thanks to all. I am still
asking for donation for that project. Maybe you can donate $25, $50 or
$100... If we do not have enough money - we are paying >from our Bessarabia
SIG General fund. Thanks for donors to that fund... but all that money will
be spent soon!

Here is one idea which may help you to donate. If you donate $100, you can
send me the name you are looking for, and I will personally send you the
record, photo which was sent to JOWBR and also duplicates if exist for this
grave. I also will include the final report for the cemetery. If you have
already donated to this fund, please let me know, and I will send you all of
the above.

All Bessarabian Cemeteries are on fire! #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Hi All,

It is me again, as I promised my second email about Jewish Cemeteries in
Bessarabia/Moldova.

Here are indexing and photographing projects we completed since summer of
2013, see information at JOWBR and Bessarabia SIG website;
Bendery, Moldova - major town cemetery;
Chimishliya, Moldova - small cemetery, about 60% of the graves are
unrecognized;
Dubossary, Moldova - New section was completed. The Old section will
be in work this year;
Tiraspol, Moldova - large cemetery, a second cemetery exists and the
work will be done.

Projects in progress:
Lipkani, a large portion is photographed and team is working. Need
more Hebrew specialists;
Brichani, a large cemetery. Same person who works in Lipkani will
also working Brichani.
Kishinev-Doyna - a large cemetery with about 11,000 Jewish graves.
Team is making good progress;
Soroki New and Old Cemeteries! ALL THE PHOTOS were provided by
Brock Bierman, sincere appreciation to him! The team coordinated by Peter
Seltser is working on checking the index with photographs and uploading soon
to JOWBR;

Cemeteries for which we will start projects soon:
Kishinev Jewish Cemetery, a large cemetery of about 24,000 burials;
4 small cemeteries in the South of Moldova: Tarakliya, Chadyr-Lunga,
Kagul and Baymakliy
Possibly Kiliya, Ukraine and Ismail, Ukraine

You see that we did a lot already, and planning to do more.

Why I put in a subject "All Bessarabian Cemeteries are on fire!" You
probably remember when was a fire in Lipkani Cemetery, but it appeared that
no graves were damaged.

This is THE ONLY CEMETERY for which we collected sizable donations, like
80% of total cost. Usually we are collecting only 10-25%. I want to
encourage you to donate to every cemetery a little bit of money, like $20,
$50 or possible $100. This is the only way we could continue and I hope in
5 years to work on all 60-70 Jewish Cemeteries in Bessarabia/Moldova. Do
not wait.. please donate to every cemetery project - If we will not do it in
5 years, there will not much left to index, photograph.

Gesher Galicia Cadastral Map Room by our map room coordinator, Jay
Osborn. It's for the town of Lezajsk in the Rzeszow Kreis (Circle)
and it is a real beauty! Even if this is not "your "town, take a
moment look at the scope, detail and "uncommon layout" of this
cartographic masterpiece.

Le=BFajsk Town Cadastral Map 1853

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/lezajsk-lizhensk-1853/

A complete full-color lithographed cadastral map of the town of
Lezajsk (Lizhensk, Lezaysk, Lezajsk) >from 1853. Land parcels and
houses are all clearly numbered; redline manuscript revisions show
changes >from the 1853 edition intended for a later update. The town
has an uncommon layout, with three significant clusters of houses
connected by roads through the fields. The map includes both masonry
and wooden buildings, a market square, a synagogue, three churches and
a monastery, a Catholic cemetery, and a large Jewish cemetery with the
grave of Rebbe Elimelech. An unusual feature of this map is two paper
patches northwest of the town centers, correcting errors in the
original drafting of the town cadastral border. Images for this map
were provided to Gesher Galicia by the Archiwum Panstwowe w Przemyslu.

Gesher Galicia has companion metrical record databases in the All
Galicia Database (AGD) to go with the maps:

Lezajsk Jewish Birth Index (1881-1890) (1,353 records)
Lezajsk Jewish Marriage Index (Grooms Only) (1877-1938) (1,239 records)

Thanks for Brooke Schreier Ganz for continuing to add data sets to the
AGD, and, as always, to Jay Osborn who continues to toil for GG
wherever in the world he may be.

Re: All Bessarabian Cemeteries are on fire! #bessarabia

Hi All,

It is me again, as I promised my second email about Jewish Cemeteries in
Bessarabia/Moldova.

Here are indexing and photographing projects we completed since summer of
2013, see information at JOWBR and Bessarabia SIG website;
Bendery, Moldova - major town cemetery;
Chimishliya, Moldova - small cemetery, about 60% of the graves are
unrecognized;
Dubossary, Moldova - New section was completed. The Old section will
be in work this year;
Tiraspol, Moldova - large cemetery, a second cemetery exists and the
work will be done.

Projects in progress:
Lipkani, a large portion is photographed and team is working. Need
more Hebrew specialists;
Brichani, a large cemetery. Same person who works in Lipkani will
also working Brichani.
Kishinev-Doyna - a large cemetery with about 11,000 Jewish graves.
Team is making good progress;
Soroki New and Old Cemeteries! ALL THE PHOTOS were provided by
Brock Bierman, sincere appreciation to him! The team coordinated by Peter
Seltser is working on checking the index with photographs and uploading soon
to JOWBR;
Beltsy, Phase 2 - continuing working on photographing this large
cemetery, the new phase will be ready in the fall of 2014

Cemeteries for which we will start projects soon:
Kishinev Jewish Cemetery, a large cemetery of about 24,000 burials;
4 small cemeteries in the South of Moldova: Tarakliya, Chadyr-Lunga,
Kagul and Baymakliy
Possibly Kiliya, Ukraine and Ismail, Ukraine

You see that we did a lot already, and planning to do more.

Why I put in a subject "All Bessarabian Cemeteries are on fire!" You
probably remember when was a fire in Lipkani Cemetery, but it appeared that
no graves were damaged.

This is THE ONLY CEMETERY for which we collected sizable donations, like
80% of total cost. Usually we are collecting only 10-25%. I want to
encourage you to donate to every cemetery a little bit of money, like $20,
$50 or possible $100. This is the only way we could continue and I hope in
5 years to work on all 60-70 Jewish Cemeteries in Bessarabia/Moldova. Do
not wait.. please donate to every cemetery project - If we will not do it in
5 years, there will not much left to index, photograph.

Also if you do not mind, when you make a donation, please send an email of
the fund/date/amount and I know where we stand. If you donate $100 to
cemetery fund, you can request record, photos >from that cemetery, I will
send you right away.
