Josye Goldstein
Thank you for your work on findagrave!

I have a correction for you.

Josye Goldstein's maiden name is Samuel. It is shown here as Samuels, but there is no final "s" on her name.

RE: duplicate for Miles Kirschner
Interesting message from you. I only post immediate and slightly extended family members. The first person to enter my estranged (brother) family member apparently uses news obituaries. Write to him and tell HIM to transfer the listing to me since we have been family for all those years. I am somewhat younger but his posting belongs to the family NOT a stranger. He only ha a public listing not an email contact.

Thanks for noticing.

RE: I erased the edit (other edits I sent are good)
I also changed the children's mother. I am sure she was their mother.

Hi Ray:
Looking for relatives KAMINSKY
ISRAEL b. 1861 -Poland/Russia/Lithuania
Aaron b. 1843 - Poland d. 1912 germany
William b. abt. 1849 Poland/russia/ Lithuania

Don't have father's name or any other siblings.

I am looking for additional info on the above family as well as anything else you may have on Marcus Kaminsky 1827 - 1905
Max Kaminsky 1861-1886
in reference to Find a Grave at Ahavai Sholom Cemetery in Oregon.

My family (3) came to US around 1890's and settled in NYC.
Trying to put pieces together ..
Possible that Marcus is the Father??

Hi Ray,

On any of the memorials I've set up, please feel free to provide translations of the Hebrew names (and any other headstone information) using the "Marker Transcription" field of the edit tab.

You don't need to (with me anyway) put useful information into a "flowers and note" posting. If accurate, I think a memorial should contain as much relevant information as possible. It makes the memorial more useful to future users.

Best regards,

King David Cemetery Thank you for the edits. I was reminded that I photographed the Kirshner family burials in the Acme Pythian plot in King David.

RE: Hairman Kaminsky
found as Herman, looks like someone has already listed his info; do you think it is appropriate to copy his death cert as photo on this site?

Ruth-Ellen Burack Flanagan
Julius Kaminsky
Chevra Kadusha of Boston Cemetery
Chevra Kadusha of Chelsea Cemetery

Both of these say they are in Woburn. Julius' death certificate says Chevra Kadusa, Woburn.

So, he is not buried in Chevra Kadisha in Auburn.
