Re: Help with Headstone Translation

Hello,

I have no idea whether this will help; my skills with photo enhancement are quite basic.

I've picked out the date elements and reversed the images, which sometimes helps.  You can see it here:  https://1drv.ms/u/s!ArDsmPjxWZLFkleD6lyuhs8Xem3c

You can zoom in on the image.

You are definitely correct about the month being Sivan.  The date of the month looks to me like it could be kaf-daled, 24.

The year is definitely a challenge.  It appears to me that the 4th character is a glyph, a combination of lamed-fey-kuf, which stands for lifrat katan, and often follows the year (to show that the leading '5' is omitted).  This leaves 3 characters for the year, the first two of which appear to be taf-resh, putting the year into the 5600's.  The third character would therefore either have to be a low number, 1-9, or a number that is divisible by 10. 

I realize that this is only slightly helpful, and hope others will be more successful than I.

Please help identify people in Zieve-Glickman family group photo 1940

Elise Cundiff
 

I have a photo of the 1940 gathering of the Abraham Raphael Family Ferein - over 250 people in the panoramic shot.  This extended family, who came from Lithuania to Cleveland in the late 19th century,  are descendents of Julius Glickman, Mina Glickman Zieve, and Samuel Zieve;  and of their children Alex Zieve, Bessie Zieve Hantman, Sarah Zieve Gordon (Detroit & Toronto), Anna Zieve Wasserman (Cincinnati), Libby Glickman Murstein, Regina Glickman Gross, Gertrude Glickman Smith, Zelda Glickman Baradofsky, Lillian Glickman Marcus.   The Galvin family of Julius Glickman's wife Anna Galvin Glickman were also involved in the ferein and may be included in the photo; also perhaps the children of  her 2nd husband  Joseph Chertoff.  Please contact me if you think you can help - I can send you better images of the photo.

My guess about why my grandparents said they were >from Babroisk rather
than the small shtetl that they probably actually were >from is several
reasons. Very few people knew where Karpilovka was, but most people
knew where Babroisk was. It's like saying you are >from Los Angeles
rather than >from Bell Gardens, a tiny town near LA. Also, I think they
were sent to Babroisk for school and went to Babroisk for the doctor.
My grandfather's brother was born in Babroisk, but his entry document
listed Karpilovka as place of closest relative. And lastly there was a
thriving Babroisker Ferain where they lived (emigre group from
Babroisk and probably like my grandparents, also >from nearby
communities).

I've looked for the family in all the Babroisk documents found online
so far and the only one was the birth of my great uncle. Also a first
cousin of my grandfather told her daughter that the wolves would howl
outside their door, and they would bang their shoes against the door
to make them go away. And finally, the family ran a flour mill and
supposedly owned an orchard. Doesn't sound like a city of 600,000.

Re: New Belarus Data #belarus

I was very excited to see these new additions to the Belarus database, and
thank everyone who helped make this possible.

My immediate interest was Novogrudok, where I found records I had previously
seen >from 1858, but I did not see any >from 1850. Am I doing something
wrong, or is the date below in error?

Thank you,

400% is of course outrageous.  But it seems a bit ironic that an organization that charges $100 to see SIG information is complaining about high costs.

Re: Zivia (Sveya, Sophie) KLAFF FAMILANT #latvia

Scott Familant <familant@...>
 

Hello

I'm trying to do research on my great-grandmother, but have hit a dead
end using JewishGen. She was born some time in the 1860-70's and was
in Philadelphia by 1896 and lived in Pocomoke, MD for a while before
returning to Philadelphia and then ultimately settling in Newport News,
where she died in 1962. Her parents were (Abraham?) Eliezer and Zelda
(Tamara?) KLAFF. She had a number of siblings including Moses Mendel,
Schmuel Zalman, Beneisch, Chana Riva Kirschner, Zlata Shapire, Ida
Butler, Pesach Ornoff, and Hannach, to name a few. Some stayed back
while others also settled in the Mid Atlantic states around the turn of
the century. I understand that Eliezer came >from a family of chazans.
Indeed, Schmuel Zalman ultimately served as a reverend in South Africa
and a relative >from another branch, Moses Claff, served as one in
England. Shavl is consistently identified as the home region for
Zivia's parents and siblings. However, her death certificate says she
was born in Latvia. I don't know if that's a mistake or true. I know
one of Zivia's sisters (Minna Weinberg) apparently lived in Riga and I
understand that Schmuel may have been trained as a cantor in Riga. So
perhaps Latvia isn't so far far-fetched. Plus, Zivia seems to be among
the youngest of her siblings by perhaps a decade or more. So maybe her
parents moved later in life?

If anyone has any thought or leads as to how I can try to solve the
mystery of Zivia's birthplace, I'd be very appreciative.

Help with Headstone Translation

Meyer Denn
 

Hello All,

I am having great difficulty deciphering the date on this headstone. Can someone here enhance this photo so that the date (day, month and year) can be ascertained? 

I can make out the name Shraga Feivel ben Yisrael, and I can even make out the month of Sivan, but I can't get anymore.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I’m following the life of Bettina WORMSER, d/o Joseph WORMSER and Sadie ANDERSON.

Bettina, b 1902, NYC wed Joseph David WORMSER in 1923. She divorced him in Feb 1936 in Reno, Nevada.
,
They had two sons: Benjamin (named for his paternal GF) b 1924. and James b about 1930.

The last mention I can find of these two boys is on the 1940 census.They are living with their mother at the home of their maternal GP.

The transcription lists them as Bettina BORZIR, Benjamin and James BORZIMER.

Does anyone know anything about them?
