A success story #france

Eve Line Blum <eve.line.blum@...>

Last 5 December, I asked a question both on
Jewishgen and FrenchSIG concerning the
descendants of a Miksa GREIF I was searching for,
because Miksa was deported >from France to the
Baltic States in 1944 with the convoy #73
http://www.convoi73.org while his brother Derze
was deported to Sobibor or Majdanek with the
convoy #50. Both of them were supposed to have
left a spouse and children who were not deported.
A few hours later, two friendly persons answered
my posting, having found an information matching
with my question in the SSDI (Social Security
Death Index). With that information, another
person could find the obituary with the name of
four members of the family who survived the
deceased person : they are Miksa's grandchildren
I was searching for.

In the same time, I asked the same question in
=46rench in the column "Questions/Answers" of the
website of the Cercle de Genealogie Juive (French
International JGS in Paris), spelling the names
and first names of the people I was searching
for. That column is freely open to everybody and
the questions are indexed by Google. Six days
later, I received a mail >from a Sara GREIF who
saw saw question on the Web. She said she never
heard of the first names I was telling about, but
she was the daughter of a Theodore, son of a
Derze GREIF... She wanted to know if there could
exist a link between him and the people I was
telling about. Since her father was only four in
1944, and since his mother never told him
anything concerning his past and his family
history, he was making searches for years...

I just had to put in touch these families who
loose touch the ones with the others for more
than sixty years, after the end of WWII...
