I have received a copy of my Great-Grandfather's
marriage certificate to his first wife.
Unfortunately the document is too large for ViewMate and is
unreadable when shrunk or cut apart so I placed it on
my website. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

More Holocaust Memorials #ukraine

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

Greetings all,
I have posted a number of additional web pages within my virtual museum's
Holocaust Memorials exhibition. The new memorials include those associated
with the following towns and cities now in the Ukraine: Drogobych/Boryslav,
Dunayevtsy, Kuzmin, Lyubar, Rava Russkaya and Sokolovka. More will be
included in the near future. I welcome any of you to translate whatever
Hebrew inscriptions appear on these photos so that they may be included with
that particular memorial photo. The same goes for the many Hebrew names
inscribed on many of these memorials.
I am also looking for photos of Holocaust memorials taken anywhere in Europe
that I can include in my upcoming Holocaust Memorials in Europe exhibition.
I have many >from Poland towns, but only one >from the Ukraine, so I will not
be able to include a page for Ukranian memorials unless I can acquire a
decent number of memorial photos >from there.
The Holocaust Memorials exhibition (for New York and New Jersey) can be
accessed via the museum's Site Map page, under the Cemetery Project heading.

Regards,

Pierre Katz... #france

Rosanne Leeson <rdleeson@...>
 

Dear FrenchSIG members,

For those of you who have made good use of his many compilations of the
1808 name change lists, and 1851 Jewish community censuses of Alsace
and Lorraine, those invaluable contributions to Jewish genealogical
research in those regions, I am sad to inform you that Pierre Katz
passed away on March 22 at age 79, and was buried in the cemetery of
Marmoutier, in France.

All of us who labor with family research in those areas owe him a deep
debt of gratitude for his labor of love, and important contributions
to the field!

Re: Budapest Street Names #hungary

Dear SIG-gers,
pls allow me to contribute to this discussion and make it a little bit more
"confusing":

in Budapest they are some more streets, roads and squares their name is
"ERZSEBET", probably after emperor FRANZ-Joseph´s wife Queen "Sisi"
Elisabeth:

- the above mentioned ERZSEBET-Ring
- ERZSEBET Close in III. district,
- ERZSEBET Street in IV. district,
- ERZSBET Square in V. district,
- ERZSEBET Street in X. district,
- ERZSEBET View in XII. district,
- ERZSEBET Road im XIV. district,
- Queen ERZSEBET Street in XXII. district.

This is a wonderful example of why so many immigrants ended up with
changed names. The best I can make out is that maybe it is Erzsebet utca.
There is of course the famous Erzsebet Korut which is part of one of the
Buadpest "Rings". Certainly there is at least one Erzsebet utca as well,
but regrettably all of my stuff is packed.

The best way for you to confirm the residence of your ancestors would be
to consult the Budapest City Directory. By my recollection a copy of the
1907 book exists in the Ervin Szabo library in Pest. It is easy to find
and you can get entry fairly easily without having to speak Hungarian.
You may have to get a day card, but it will be free. Just ask for the
Budapest room and you will find the City Directories on the back wall.

Searching for in formation on Mauryc SOKOLOWER #danzig #gdansk #germany #poland

Avraham (Avi) Ayalon <ayalonav@...>
 

Dear list members,

This family story has a part that took place in Danzig.

Mauryc SOKOLOWER was a brother (among several brothers and sisters) to my
late grandfather, Abraham SOKOLOWER, who I am named after.

The information about Mauryc is partial: he probably was born in
Zielun/Poland as all his siblings were (but there were no hits for a search
under his name in JRI-Poland database), moved at unknown time to Danzig,
graduated >from Engineering department in Gdansk University ~1930, married to
his wife which I do not remember her name, but know that she was a GOLDBERG,
daughter of Yechezkel, and they had at least one known child: a son named
Alexander.

Mauryc was a high rank officer, a General, in the Red Army and was even
granted several Medals and Orders among them the Hero of the Soviet Union.
At a certain time he relocated with his family in Tallinn, Estonia. However
he was not listed in the book: Jewish Generals in the Armed Forces of the
Soviet Union (published in Hebrew, written by General, Prof. Svardlov).

Mauryc disappeared/executed in what was known as "Stalin Clearances".

Mauryc's wife, son and grandson made Aliyah to Israel in the 1970's. They
settled in Arad, the old woman died, the father and his son later moved to
Jerusalem and about 10 years ago Alexander left to the USA. We lost contact
with them.

That sums more or less the information I can recall about Mauryc SOKOLOWER.

I am searching for further pieces of information about him or his son,
Alexander.

Any help would very much be appreciated.

Thank you for your attention.

Re: Matatias Carp book #romania

Monica Talmor
 

One more comment about this book - the English translation, which is what is
available on the net, is also an abridged version of the original,
containing very few names. The original, in Romanian, has hundreds of names
and personal accounts, written when memories were still fresh, by the
survivors, right after the war. There is no index. Having looked at both, I
don't think the present translation does it justice, it's more of a
statistical and historical account. The only place I have found the original
on the east coast is at the Harvard University library, and it is available
from them, on microfilm, for inter-library loan (that's how I actually
looked at it, several years ago).

Yekutiel) b 1889, Suwalk, Poland > Manchester (a1905), SIMANS, 17
Huxley Ave. Cheetham (1914 –56).

I am helping my father in law, Leslie SIMANS at Manchester, born 1917,
to trace the roots of his father and his ancestors. His father, Ralph
(Yerachmiel ben Yekutiel), SIMANSKY, born 1889 in Poland/Russia, married
Sarah HYMAN 1 Sep 1914 at Manchester Central Synagogue,Cheetham Hill Road.
Her parents were David HYMAN and Amelia SINGER at 225 Cheetham Hill Rd.
David Hyman were born 1863 at Wolkovitch=Vaukaviski (nowadays Belarus),
Suwalki Gubernika in Poland. Ralph also came >from Suwalk Gubernia and
we belive that he may have been born around a town called Sejny. His
father was (Ye)kusiel and his mother Sara (Tsirele). Ralph had one
brother (Hana(h) (Chane) Itzshke) and one sister Haya (Chaja) Peshke
that we aware off– but unfortunately we do not know their respective
year of birth.Ralph arrived to Manchester around 1905-10, and before
his marriage, he stayed with a couple named BERMAN, who may have been
relatives or friends to his family in Poland/Russia

I would be very grateful for whatever assistance and/or guidance you
are able to give me with the further tracing of the ancestors of
Leslie Simans.
