Le Havre, no passenger records #general

Micheline GUTMANN <MichelineGUTMANN@...>
 

from time to times, I receive the question of Le Havre records.
So, a few years ago, I wrote to the genealogical association
of le Havre and Seine maritime.

I received a definitive answer.

They were only doing a list of members of the French Navy
before the Revolution. They said that they have years of work
and they did not plan to do this work for all the passengers.

If such a source should be available, of course , I would have
written it on the Infofiles for French sources on Jewish Genealogy,

Are you aware that Speil could also mean a mirror?

From: Alfred A. Goldberg < alfran@... >
Subject: SPEILGLASS
For a cousin, I am seeking any info about a SPEILGLASS family. She
thinks that the family originated in Romania, with the name of SPEIL
(since his occupation pertained to glass, they believe that glass was
attached to his name) They then migrated to France. This must have
been in the very late 1800's. They then came to the USA in the very
early 1900's. The ones who stayed in France supposedly owned a rather
large Department Store.

Miriam (Minnie) Speilglass married Hyam or Chaim ORNSTEIN, and they had
7 children. The children's names were Sigmund, Sam, Harry, Anna, Lena,
Rose, and Jack. We know that Harry was born in America.

The first Cohain, Aaron, was a Levite.
If you know your tribe can you continue your research >from before
surnames?
I suppose it would help to a certain extent. It would be most helpful for
Cohanim.

Urgent - How to Contact the Israeli Bone Marrow Registries #general

Stranddr@...
 

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

My 4 year old grandson Henry is in desperate need of a bone marrow
transplant. He has Fanconi Anemia, a potentially fatal genetic disease,
which affects Ashkenazi Jews. Our family is searching for a marrow match for
him. We have held several bone marrow drives to locate someone who will be a
compatible donor. Although we are using all the resources in the United
States, we know that there are bone marrow registries in Israel. We would be
interested in any information that you might have about contacting the
Israeli registries.

Any help that you can give us would be appreciated. I can be contacted at
< stranddr@... >. I am eager to have any information that you may be able
to share with us.

Regina Kopilevich to speak in Salt Lake City #general

Litvaks@...
 

Exciting news! Regina Kopilevich, a world renowned Jewish guide and
interpreter >from Vilnius, Lithuania, will be speaking at the IAJGS
20th International Conference on Jewish Genealogy, July 9-14,
2000, in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Regina is known to virtually every Jewish genealogist with Litvak
roots who has made a trip to the Old Country as the premier
Jewish guide and interpreter. When perestroika started in about
1988, she became the First Secretary of the newly-established
Jewish Cultural Society of Lithuania. Regina was part of the
group that organized the Jewish museum in Vilnius and she was
one of the original guides when the first foreign genealogical
researchers began to arrive at the beginning of the 1990s.

In 1993, Regina was permitted access to Jewish records in the
Lithuanian State Historical Archive in Vilnius and she has been
making lists of Jewish names by town ever since. Due to time
constraints, Regina no longer does personal research in the
archives for individuals.

In 1992, she began studying Hebrew and now reads, writes, and
speaks it fluently, as well as Russian, Lithuanian, English, and
Yiddish. Presently, Regina is studying for a Masters Degree in
Jewish Studies at Hebrew University in Jerusalem.

During the conference, Regina will speak on how to plan a shtetl
(or even multi shtetl) trip, including visits to key Jewish sites in
Kaunas and Vilnius, the cost and time needed. She will provide
important details on what to do, what to bring, and what is most
necessary for a successful and enlightening trip. Regina will
also speak about conditions in the many Jewish cemeteries as
well as the killing fields (where Jews who were murdered by
both Nazis and Lithuanian Fascists lie buried in mass graves)
she has visited all over Lithuania.

During the LitvakSIG luncheon on Thursday, July 13, Regina will talk
about some of her most memorable experiences guiding Litvaks
around Lithuania and Belarus.

On Sunday, she will help conference registrants recognize their
family names and shtetl names in Russian Cyrillic, and she will
also be available throughout the week to help translate
newly-arrived Lithuanian Jewish vital records at the Family
History Library. LitvakSIG will set up a procedure which will
afford everyone equal access to Regina while, at the same time,
maximize her time and efforts.

Regina's attendance at the conference is cosponsored by
LitvakSIG and IAJGS.

Austrian-Jewish Life Stories (Oral History) #galicia

Andreas Inhofner <inhofner@...>
 

Austrian-Jewish Life Stories >from the Habsburg Monarchy (Oral History).

"Als haetten wir dazugehoert" (as much as: 'as if we were a part of them, of
it') is the German original title of a book, issued by Boehlau
(Vienna-Cologne-Weimar) in late 1999, in cooperation with Leo Baeck
Institute, New York, and the Institute for History of the Jews in Austria.

Antisemitism.

Part 2: Oral History, personal stories >from Galicia, Moravia, Bukovina,
Bohemia and Vienna.

A collection of life stories of the Jews of the former Austrian Monarchy,
between 1848 and 1918. A large number of authors, with mainly private family
stories about everyday's manifold life and culture.

The editor, Albert Lichtblau, is professor in Salzburg and visiting
professor of the University of Chicago, with connections to the Shoa
foundation.

Dear friends, some of you may find the following useful:

The Canadian newspaper "Globe & Mail" of Sat., March 25, 2000
endorses a useful guidebook for those who plan to visit KRAKOW:

Lonely Planet Krakow
By Krzysztof Dydynski
Raincoast Books
184 pages, $25, paperback.
(about US$17 - P.J.)

Quote >from G&M:

"During the last few years, Lonely Planet has dramatically increased the
number of its European guidebooks, especially about Central- and
Eastern-European destinations that have seen a surge in post Communist
popularity. This first edition of Krakow is one of the latest.

As usual with Lonely Planet guides, the book is an intimate and
authoritative look at one of Central Europe's most interesting cities. The
royal capital for half a millenium, it has witnessed and absorbed more of
Polish history than any other city in the country. Moreover, Dydynski
writes in his introduction, unlike most other Polish cities, it came
through the Second World War more or less unscathed. It has, therefore,
retained much of its past, guarded in its walls, works of art and
traditions.
The book includes 13 detailed maps and excellent colour photographs."
