Information on Sadgura LandsmannschaftenThere were two Landsmannschaften of Sadgura emigrants in the New York City area. Both are now defunct. One was known as the Erster Sadagorer KUV, whose records are stored in the YIVO Archives. Burial plots for members were located at the Mt. Zion Cemetery, Maspeth, Queens, New York. A listing of burials for this society was published in the newsletter of the Romanian-Jewish Genealogy special interest group, ROM-SIG News. You may view the complete list by clicking here.
The second Landsmannschaft was known as the First Sadgurer Young Men's Benevolent Society, with burial plots for members on Staten Island in the Baron Hirsch Cemetery. A nearly complete listing of burials may be viewed by clicking here.
