I am doing my family tree and there is a ancestor of mine that I can't seem to track down his date of death. The persons name is Goodman, Nathan possible born 1880-1881. Death date (1940-1941). I am trying to tarck down an obituary and a death record. His wife, son and daughter were all buried in Connecticut in Loyalty cemetery. The city directories I have looked through state the wife as widowed in 1941. I have contacted Abraham Green funeral homes and they have done a thorough search of their records and did not find anything, but the women I spoke with said she had got a hit on your site, that there is a Goodman Nathan buried in Middlesbrough on Feb 11, 1936 at the age of 56, which would put him in the bracket of being born in 1880-81.
If there is anyway you can give me information on him, I would appreciate it. His wife's name was Jennie Goldie Goodman. As far as I have been able to figure out, they had always lived in Connecticut from the 1920's. Any info would be helpful. Sarah Greenberg
My late Uncle Percy and his wife Yetta Richman are buried in Middlesbrough Hebrew Congregation cemetery and although I knew 90% of the information from my cousin Sheila Rydz, I wasn't aware, for example, that my uncle was a former President of the community. Angie Elfassi Yehud, Israel

I just found my grandfather, Barnard Reuben, who died in 1916 (I thought it was 1920) on your web site. Many thanks. Bryan Reuben

I will be adding a link to your web site, which I found to be of interest to researching one's Jewish roots to my web site http://jewishwebindex.com My site is a compendium of thousands of links and bits and pieces of information -- sorted in alphabetical format by Country and/or Subject and it is free. Would you be so kind as to add my web site to yours? Ted Margulis Palm Desert, CA
I just passed the "shul" and it's all newly painted and clean and the Magen David is still there and it is called "LUGS LODGE" with a big no. 33 on the door and 12 flats` speakerphones.....so it`s occupied as 12 flats and up and running. The front is all cleaned up but the black gates with the Magen David are still there.. and there is sandstone gravel on the forecourt...it looks very nice...but I still wish it was our old shul!
