Rivka Barbasch #galicia

Milton Koch
 

My PGM Feige's family was Barbasch >from Pidvolochysk, Poland (now
Ukraine).

I have found many siblings of her in both JRI-PL and Gesher Galicia.
However, I have just come upon RIVKA in several documents -- her marriage
to Mendel Wolf Weitman in 1928, as well as two pages of testimony >from
Yad Vashem. She supposedly was born in 1877. She apparently perished in
1942 in the Shoah; no records of this found either.

One POT is by her nephew, Mordechai Barbasch, written in 1957. The other
is by her brother, Yisrael, written in 1955. I have not been able to confirm
anything about her at all. I scoured many genealogy sites to no avail.

I am trying to contact anyone of her relatives to see if there are documents
to confirm her birth and death, in order to fill in mysterious gap in my
grandmother's sibship, as well as whether she had children, who would be
my cousins!

Is it possible that births may NOT have been entered in official records
at all??

Thank you.

ROSNER Family From Zabno #galicia

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Siggers,

Just found out that my grandfather Chiel Jakob ROSNER (b.1866 in Dabrowa
Tarnowska d. in 1942 in Krakow) had his parents (Rubin/ Rywen Rosner and
Malka Perlberg) and siblings residing in Zabno and not in Dabrowa
Tarnowska as I wrongly assumed. My grandfather had at least two brothers:
Nussen and Hersch and two sisters: Taube and Ettel.

If this rings a bell I would like to hear >from you.

Thanks

Re: Grave at Washington Cemetery in Brooklyn

Laurie
 

Hi All,
Thanks so much for the overwhelming response to my request for help finding a grave at Washington Cemetery in Brooklyn. Some of you pointed out that I hadn't included my great great grandfather's name nor date of death. Sorry about that! His name was Josef DUCHOWNY or possibly DUCHOWNE. He died on March 11, 1896. He is buried in section four of the cemetery, post 403, row one, grave one, or so I am told. 

Many of you suggested I look at Jewish Data. I did, and he was not to be found there. 

Thank you all so much for your interest! What a wonderful community.

What name are you looking for


Re: Grave at Washington Cemetery in Brooklyn

Jacob Heisler
 

Hi Laurie,

I'd recommend you take a look at https://jewishdata.com/ They have a
ton of Jewish gravestone pictures, including of Washington Cemetery. I
should be clear that they don't have every single gravestone in the
cemetery. The website requires a subscription, but I have one and
would be more than happy to do a quick lookup for you and send you the
gravestone picture if they have your great-great-grandfather's
gravestone photograph.

From,
Jacob Heisler

Hello JewishGenners,
After calling every cemetery in the Brooklyn/Queens area, I have
finally located the grave of my great great grandfather. He is buried
at Washington Cemetery in Brooklyn. The cemetery gave me a “possible”
location - post 403, row one, grave one - but warned that the “post”
might not be quite correct. I wondered if anyone in this group takes
regular trips out to this cemetery, and might be willing to help me
find the correct location of my great great grandfather’s grave and
take a picture. I have been searching for him for quite some time, so
this is very exciting! I wish I could go myself, but I am in
California.
Thank you so much!

But JewishGen is the forum and platform on which this discussion is happening--unless you believe JewishGen supports the increases?

New format

Robert Hanna
 

I like your new format except for the colors.  Blue on light blue is difficult to read.  Can you change either the typeface color or the background color or both?

Re: Grave at Washington Cemetery in Brooklyn

Marilyn Robinson
 

Laurie,
You can ask via telephone some questions regarding the information found in their burial files. I found out the name of the burial society for my gr. grandparents & an alternate name---Leurie/Luria (or variation) for Levine (which is what their surname became in the US). Ask specific questions, as those who check the files are not particularly forth coming with information that is not directly requested.
Regards,
Marilyn Robinson


Re: Graves at Washington Cemetery in Brooklyn:LEVINE/LEURIE (Luria??)

Marilyn Robinson
 

My Great Grandparents are also buried in Brooklyn, NY's Washington Cemetery: Solomon (Zalman) LEVINE & Rebecca LEVINE. I have photos of their headstones but would like someone to photograph the office records for these burials. I've spoken to several different people at the cemetery and each have given me different tidbits of information. Therefore, I'd like to read the information myself. I live in Florida so a  personal visit is impossible. So, if you are visiting this cemetery, I would appreciate any help you can give to me.

For a fee the cemetery will send photos of the headstones. I did that several years ago for about $15. but I don't know present costs.

Regards,
Marilyn Robinson
