Nat Newman
Hi, Jess. I'm Nat's grandson George. I stumbled onto a possible interesting Newman family tree member. Irene Nemirovsky (famous author-look on wikipedia) was born in Kiev. Her father Leon met her mother Fanny in Odessa. Family lore has it that the Nemirovsky's (Nat's parents) were from Odessa. Irene's family fled to Paris around the time of the Russian Revolution as did Nat's family although it must have been many years before. Do you think we are related to Irene? Contact me at By the way, are we related?

Thanks so much for that. Yes, I found those death records too. The weird thing with Jacob is that he has 1 certificate number (24096, Kings), but is listed under 2 different names (Neuman and Newman) and 2 different DOBs (66 yrs old or 73 yrs old) - on the same certificate number! Can't wait to get my hands on THAT original! Thanks again!!!

Jacob Newman
Greetings, Jess! You mentioned that you have a "collection" of Jacob Newmans. I'm looking for one that was born between 1865 and 1870 in Hungary (Austria), and died in Kings County (probably Brooklyn) on December 7, 1935. His wife was Minnie Newman who possibly died Oct 14, 1944 in Kings County also. Thanks so much!!!

RE: Seymour Siegel
I would call the Mt. Lebanon Cemetery office in Iselin, NJ and ask. They seem pretty organized there.

Louis Newman
I took a look at Louis grave stone and there is a bit of a differ, on his grave stone it says (Aryeh Leib ben Samuel) is his name, Aryeh can be either Leon or Judah, and Leib is Hebrew, Russian for Louis, so his name would be Leon Louis Nemirovsky

RE: Ukraine
I'm happy to help.

By the way, I used a (free) program called Jing.

It lets you select and copy anything on your screen.

Now I just have to find my own ancestors :-)

I was doing some research for a grave in what is now Ukraine. I ran across the cemetery for TLUMAK. There was mention of pictures of the graves on Jewish Gen so I went to JG and got the pictures from there to add to the Find A Grave site.

Just thought you might like to know.

Is this your family?

RE: Tlumaks and Szerencsys
Dear Jess,

It was our pleasure to help you. My fiancée and I had quite an adventure trying to find the plots, as the layout of the cemetery had no rhyme or reason to it. These are the first photos we've taken for the site, and yet she still is going to marry me May 1...

Do you need any other LI sites? Where are you currently residing?

Best regards,

Menorah Gardens Photos
I asked Menorah Gardens to see if Sadie Margolis was buried in there, but she's not. So, I just have the one picture of Sol & Jean Gerst I added to both of their memorial pages.

RE: Menorah Gardens
I'll check for Sadie while I'm there.


Added by Carol on Feb 06, 2010 3:28 PM

Menorah Gardens
I will try to take your pictures of the Gerst's. Are there any others in that cemetery you need while I'm there?

RE: Hiya
Hey Jess,
It has been awhile since my last Mt. Zion trip. I was half expecting to hear from the groundskeepers to see if I was alright! My whole graving experience is ruled by the weather right now. The Mt. Carmel trip just happened to be a random nice day when I really needed to get out of the apt. As long as you have your requested posted, I'm sure I'll be back to my old ways in a couple months. Anticipation is half the fun...

RE: Berkoers
Hi Jess,

You are always welcome, glad I could find them for you!

Take care,

RE: Friedmans
Hi Cousin!!!

I just spoke to my mother after reading your email. She was happy to hear from you! She grew up with your grandfather Murray and remembers a lot about the family. Do you have the record of Anna or Mollie or Harry coming to America (from Ellis Island If you haven't found them yet, I can share that w you. It has their first address in NYC in it..

Please feel free to email me and/or my mom. I live in Seattle now, and my mom is living in Virginia and Indiana. My mom is now 84, but sharp so if you'd like, you'd be welcome to ask her lots of questions.

My email is
mom's is

I feel a special kinship to my mom's grandmother (Mollie Friedman). Have you been able to find info about her from before NY? I would love to find a photo of some kind, but maybe there weren't any...



Added by vlnmama on Oct 01, 2009 3:54 PM


I am the great granddaughter of Mollie Friedman (Also known as Taube and Michlah) thru her daughter Lillian Friedman Pollack. I believe that Lillian's sister Anna married a Schieber (I'll ask my mom to be sure...) Do you and I know eachother? I am Jory. Maybe I'll have a few pieces of your puzzle? Harry and Mollie (formerly of Bessarabia) begat Lillian, Anna, Frances and 4 boys. Lillian married Jacob Pollack, and they had my mom and her 2 brothers. I am Rosalyn Pollack's daughter...

RE: Just wondering... :)
Please. You call 16 requests "piling up"? It's all I can do to keep Mt. Zion's in double digits! :)

Seriously, I don't know who might be in the area, but it may encourage others if the location info was more specific. Since Union Field doesn't have the online database (although I have found a map), you'd have to call or write them, but I know I'm more drawn to requests I can look for w/o involving the office. Just a thought.

Added by TomDuse on Sep 26, 2009 8:23 AM

RE: Just wondering... :)
Hey Jess,
Hmmm...Newman...Newman...where have I heard that name before...?

Union Field is definitely on my list for an eventual visit, but I haven't figured out the best (fastest)way to get over there yet. I'm reliant on mass transit for my graving trips and from what I can tell, it'll take almost 90 minutes just to make it to the front gate. I do get the very occasional use of a car, so maybe someday...

Sorry about that.
