Dear friends!



I've read the letter about cemeteries in Russia. I live in Moscow.
I studied some documents and laws. I see that info about cemeteries
destroying is uncorrect in common case.

1. After Russian Federation law the cemetery exists eternally!

2. The cemetery is change their situation the only if take place suddenly
cases(natural accidents). On this case it territory isn't " bull-dozed "
but it be able to use the only for trees (forest).

3. On the RF territory there are a lot of un-cemetery( illegal) burial
places after Stalin's repretion times(executions)or after WW2 times
(soldiers). After law when the construction is planned on the such
territory where can be (is supposed )such illegal(aged) burial place they
has to make reburial( to transfer to other place and bury).



I understand such uncorrect information so as the most of people also in
Russia don't studies any documents but they uses hearings and very seldom
illegal facts.

I have been told that, although not himself Jewish, my
great-uncle was employed by the Jewish Times in London
as a Compositor, probably both pre- and post- WWII. Is
there any way in which I can confirm this?

JGFF success! #general

Dear Members,

I would like to share a most remarkable occurence. I've read of it
happening to others, and now it was my turn. I was contacted by a
"new" relative who found me at JGFF.

She is the great granddaughter of my great grandmother's brother
(got that?). As for many others, the Holocaust caused such an absolute
separation in my family, that until now I didn't think I could ever
connect with relatives. She sent me such a wonderful list of cousins
living around the world.

Thank you Jewishgen!!!!! Le chaim!!!!!!

Wishing all of you the same good fortune,

The appropriate place to obtain the info you require on South Africa is the
SA SIG web site:

http://www.jewishgen.org/SAfrica

You can also post an inquiry on the SA SIG digest on JewishGen.

The National Archives of SA is now on-line and you can search for records
there at:

Good luck.

Re: Marks, Jacobs, and Green #general

Haakon Chevalier <haakonc@...>
 

Dear Shirley Pencer and Cathy J. Flamholtz,

I also don't see any of these names. It was the combination of the
three names which got me interested in this thread in the first place.
However, with common names it is hard to find connections. I have
already had the experience of having the same first name and two
relatively rare last names in a marriage as someone else. We continued
for some time before discovering that which surname was the husband and
wife were different for our two families.

Nevertheless, the genetic research which has shown probable
relationships between bearers of common English surnames, together with
the explosive growth which can occur in bearers of a surname in a few
generations if many of the large number of children common back then
manage to survive implies that even those of us with common surnames may
be related. However, it doesn't seem likely that we will discover that
relationship in the near future.
