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,

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?

Does not seem to be for the ancestor I hoped, however, I am still working to uncover some connection.

Father: David Kaminsky
Mother: Sarah Birnbam
Address at death: 140 E 4th Street
53 years old
Occupation: Tailor

I will be posting a copy on ancestry and can email a copy to you if you wish.
Kind Regards

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.

Molly Mazelsky
Thanks so much for your reply and the additional information. I will check out Flickr. Since you also have relatives buried at Mokom, perhaps Molly's burial site is adjacent. The cemetery staff believed Molly and Morris Mazelsky were buried in sections 5 or 5A, but weren't sure. Would you be open to sharing the names of your relatives buried there and where they are located? I'm visiting NY now and it would be great if I could find Molly's site on this trip. Thanks for your help.

Molly Mazelsky - Mokom Sholom Cemetery
Hi Ray,
Thank you for posting the information about Molly Mazelsky. I went to the cemetery yesterday, but I could not find the headstone. I would greatly appreciate it if you would let me know how you gathered this information and if you know the actual location of the headstone.
Molly was my great grandmother. Are you related to Molly?
Thank you for your assistance.
All the best,

RE: Hyman Kaminsky
thank you for your reply Ray,
our Kaminsky arrived in New York in 1881; and the family story is that he committed suicide in 1924; I have just ordered a death certificate from NY for "Hairman Kaminsky" hoping for some connecting information. I have posted the marriage license on for our kaminsky and you will find the spelling comical if you are interesting in giving it a look.
Happy hunting
