record may be in Russian.

I do not have his father's and mother's names nor any details about
them, so please translate the record with as much detail as possible.

19th Century Building Contractors in Berditchev #general

bherman@...
 

Hello,

My g grandfather, Moshe Naftoli Futtterman, was a builder in Berditchev
between the late 1860s to around 1912. Can anybody recommend a source for a
snapshot of what that job entailed?

I apologize if this not a question for JewishGen.

Thank You,
Devorah Ross

Re: Suggestions for finding death certificates/obituaries in New Jersey? #general

Have you tried online sources you have checked, such as legacy.com,
obituaries.com, deadfred, findagrave, etc.? I found my long-lost
aunt's grave this way. I had been concerned because two years after
she moved, we lost communication with her. I was able to work back to
the family that assisted her in her latter years, make contact and get
some new information. It turns out she is buried near my uncle and
mother with her last husband, in the very same cemetery!

their early 70's in 1960, living in Jersey City, NJ...

Hi Rusty,

An old-fashioned card index to names in The Jersey Journal is held
in The New Jersey Room of the JCPL:
http://www.jclibrary.org/departments/new-jersey-room
I'm not certain if the card index goes through the 1960's.
My research in that index was late 1800's and early 1900's.

They'll look up a name at no cost, but do charge to copy the page off
the microfilm & send it to you.

I'm not aware of either an on-line index or digitzed version of
The Jersey Journal.

Survivor Szlama SZNAJDER #general

Barbara Weintraub <barbaralw@...>
 

In addition to the Displaced Person cards I found yesterday, I
also just found what appears to be a record of my great uncle's
arrival at Dachau via the JewishGen Holocaust databases.

Here is the information >from that record.
Page: 5711 Ho. Fa
Name: SCHNEIDER, Slama
Date of Birth: 05 Feb 1896 [This exact date is new to me.]
Town of Birth: Ostrowiecz
Town of Residence: Ostrowiecz
Street & Number: Scheninska 39
Prisoner #: 119 466
Category: Sch. J. P.
Arrived: 27 Oct 1944 Au.
Disposition: befr. Kaufer.

I understand most of this information. Can someone help me
interpret and understand the rest of the data, please?

Does the "page number" refer to a registry kept by the Nazis?
What do "Category", the "Au." in the arrival date, and
"Disposition" mean? I assume they are abbreviations for something.

NY Times article about Cardinal O'Connor's Jewish roots (with some mentions of my research) #general

Renee Steinig
 

The New York Times ran a front page story on Wednesday, June 11, under
the headline "Rabbi a Cardinal Never Knew: His Grandfather":

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/11/nyregion/cardinal-john-joseph-oconnor-jewish-mother-genealogy.html
(or http://tinyurl.com/GumpelNYT)

The article reports on the saga that emerged after John Cardinal
O'Connor's sister revealed that their mother's parents are buried in a
Jewish cemetery in Connecticut. My subsequent discovery that the
O'Connors' maternal grandfather was a rabbi was first reported in The
Jewish Week. Additional information I've found in vital and probate
records appears in the Times article.

Cardinal O'Connor served as archbishop of New York until his death in
2000. His Jewish grandparents were Gustave (Mordechai ben Moshe)
Gumpel, who emigrated >from Hamburg in 1877 (last residence Bromberg,
Prussia -- now Bydgoszcz, Poland), and Tina Ruben, who sailed from
Hamburg in 1880 (last residence: Inowroclaw, Prussia - now Poland).
The Cardinal's mother, Dorothy O'Connor, was born "Deborah Gumpel" in
Bridgeport, Connecticut, in 1887. Her birth record is one of many
documents that mention Gustave's occupation: rabbi.
