series on the history of Canada. The series is called
Canada: A People's History and has already premiered

communities throughout Canada in helping us find people
who have personally experienced or know of families whose
relatives >from Europe were denied access into Canada during the war.

Dear Jackye:

My grandfather's death notice was in 1927 in the Cincinnati Daily Times.
He was also the founder of a German Language Newspaper, "Freie Press" and
later sold it to the Burgheim Company.

163 St & Fort Washington Ave is a residential area and has been for at
least 40 years (since I lived there as a child). I don't know of any place
that could match what you are looking for, *but* there is the
Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center located right nearby (165 - 168 St.).
Also - at 99 Fort Wachington Ave, (which might be 163 St.) there used to be
a hospital which I think was not affiliated then with Col-Pres, known as
the Francis Delafield Hospital. This may have some connection with what you
are looking for.
Good luck.

Try the local Jewish genealogical or historical society of whatever city
your friend grew up in. Or, try an existing synagogue in that city. . . .
Or, try the local Bureau of Jewish Studies or the Jewish Studies
Department of a local university.

Or, ask the people who currently occupy this building that you say is
now a church. They might know.

Indeed, my Grand-aunt Ida, born in 1883 in Boston's north end community
of Litvaks, had Khaya for her Hebrew name.

New Book on History of Jews of Northern Alberta! #general

David Goldman <davic@...>
 

I just received my copy of the new book on the History of Jewish Life in
Edmonton and Northern Alberta 1893-1993! It is a great complement to the
Land of Promise, The Jewish Experience in Southern Alberta. These two
volumes are family histories and photo albums, which I am happy to say
include entries and photos of my various great-grandparents and
great-great-grandparents.

Hi!
I recently found the passenger record for my wife's great-grandmother,
and was lucky enough to find the name of "new" relative listed under
the "Name of closest relative in country >from which you emigrated"
category. Unfortunately, the handwriting is even worse than usual, and
I'm pretty much stumped.


Tracing fate of Shoah victims #general

I recently contacted Yad VaShem regarding fate of a relative. I provided
only known place of residence plus first, maiden, and married names. They
were unable to locate anyone fitting that description. How do I determine
correct last place of residence? Please reply privately to Evan Fishman,
ebf2001@... . Thanks.

Confiscated Art Heirs Search #general

Thekla1
 

Olga Freund Hoppe and Berta Freund Sieben lived in Chicago in 1949
according to documents. Their addresses were **** Winthrop Avenue and
**** West 28th Street.

I have been told that these two women and/or their families could recover
art work presently held in the Czech Republic; however, if these heirs are
not found by the end of the year 2001, this art work will be nationalized.

I have no personal interest in this effort. The reason that I am searching
for them is because I have had so much help in my efforts to recover
confiscated art belonging to my family and I have been successful;
therefore, I feel a strong responsibility to assist others if I can.

Please search your records and let me know if you could provide any useful
information.

Sincerely,

Thekla Stein Nordwind

I've searched the LDS online catalogue and can't find the

Would anyone happen to know the film number?
The Holland America Line (HAL) passenger registers and indexes
are on over 1,000 microfiche.

For the LDS catalog numbers of these microfiche, and detailed
