JCR-UK SIG #UnitedKingdom Formation of email group about Isle of Man Internment #UnitedKingdom

Tony Hausner
 

Several of us have recently activated an email group about Internment on the
Isle of Man. This is primarily during World War II but also applies to World
War I since internment by the British occurred then as well.
In my case, my parents and other family members, all of whom were Jewish,
escaped >from Vienna shortly after the Anschluss, when the Germans took over
Austria in 1938. Most of my Viennese family members escaped to England.
However, a year later most of them were labeled by their local boards as
"enemy aliens' and spent as much as a year in separate camps on the Isle of
Man.

To join our group, please send an email to me at thausner@...

Re: Amazon Donations for JewishGen

Hi Nancy,
I think this is a great idea!  Lord knows, I spend enough on Amazon.  When I went to the link, I got my account, but putting in JewishGen yielded a couple of state societies but not JewishGen itself.  Perhaps others will have this problem and may also benefit from more direction!

Have you contacted Jewish History Association of South Wales, https://jhasw2018.wixsite.com/news?  Even if they do not have the materials you need they can probably point you in the right direction.

Dear Avraham,
I tried to use the donate link using my credit card, and after I fill in the whole thing, it won't work unless I sign in to or create a PayPal account.
I am not interested in doing this.  I used to be able to just use my credit card to donate to Jewish Gen.  Can you help me with this?

Thank you.

If You Need More on the Outlandish USCIS Fee Hikes See The Legal Genealogist's Posting

Jan Meisels Allen
 

I have as have others posted about the outlandish proposed fee increases by USCIS for the immigration records we would as genealogists want for our ancestors and other family members. Judy Russell, The Legal Genealogist, wrote in today’s post about this and debunked some of the myths. If you still have questions or don’t think this is important please read her posting at: https://www.legalgenealogist.com/2019/12/02/fight-the-fee-hikes/

Do send copies of your comments to your US Senators and Representative. And do read and sign-up for the coalition which is fighting this: https://www.recordsnotrevenue.com/

This is not the time to sit back and let others do this –we need everyone to respond. Only with a massive comment avalanche will we have a chance to get this overturned.

This database is available at the Steve Morse website under Holocaust and
Jewish Roof organizations. It will also be added to the Jewishgen holocaust

As is the case with the previous letters of the alphabet, the database
contains fields which may be searched by family or maiden name, place of
birth and death and other factors such as country of emigration, suicide,
Mischling, etc.
For any name of interest one should go to the card >from which this information

Margaret Levin asked about how to request Stolpersteine in Poland.

The first step is to contact the artist's team, not any Polish

JRI Poland #Poland Poland + Ukraine 1764-1766 Jewish census images online for some towns #Poland

Logan Kleinwaks
 

I have just posted at
https://archive.org/details/agad_fond350_sygnatura168 photographs of a
book of 1764-1766 Jewish censuses for the following towns (+ some
nearby villages), which I wrote about here in 2018:

Kingdom of Poland: Baranow (Lublin), Konskowola (Lublin) + Wlostowice,
Miedzyrzec Podlaski (Siedlce), Staszow (Radom)

Galicia: Berezhany / Brzezany, Jaroslaw, Kalush / Kalusz, Narayev /
Narajow, Peremyshlyany / Przemyslany, Sieniawa, Skole, Tarnoruda

Podolia: Hraniv / Granow, Letychiv / Latyczow, Medzhybizh / Miedzyboz,
Nikolayev / Mikolajow, Sataniv / Satanow (statistics only), Stara
Sinyava / Stara Sieniawa

Volhynia: Klevan / Klewan

I photographed the book at AGAD in Warsaw and have received written
confirmation >from AGAD that this material is in the public domain and
can be shared as long as a citation is given to the archive and file
location.

Example citation: Archiwum Glowne Akt Dawnych w Warszawie, Fond 350
(Archiwum Potockich z Lancuta), Sygnatura 168.

More details are given at the link above, including a table of
contents with links to jump to the first images for each town.

Anyone is free to index this material, but, if you are interested in
doing so, you might want to first 1) announce your intentions here to
avoid duplication of effort and 2) reach out to the appropriate
Research Directors or Town Leaders at JewishGen, Gesher Galicia, or
JRI-Poland. It is my understanding that Staszow and Miedzyrzec
Podlaski have been indexed but are not yet online. I do not plan to
organize indexing myself.

Also, anyone who would like to share/post some or all of these images
elsewhere is welcome to do so -- just include the citation.

Please note that I am not affiliated with archive.org and am not
responsible for other content hosted there, I am just using it to
share and preserve public images as do the U.S. Holocaust Memorial
Museum, Leo Baeck Institute, Library of Congress, Reclaim the Records,
etc. In the future, I may post additional archival documents there
(with permission >from the archives), of both Jewish and more general
genealogical interest.

Thanks very much to AGAD and its archivists and supporters for
preserving this important material and making it available to
researchers.

Re: Amazon Donations for JewishGen

Madeleine Sann
 

I am ashamed to say how much we spend on Amazon purchases a month. The charity I designated has, over perhaps 3 years of our spending thousands upon thousands of dollars (442 orders), reaped a little over $100. It’s a good idea to designate a charity but the actual money generated is discouraging. If you use the mobile app, it will not generate anything. You have to go through the smile.amazon.com site - which we do.

Chevre B'nai Abraham Samuel Anshei Ashisker

Laurie
 

Hello group,
My great great grandfather Josef Duchowny was buried in 1896 in a plot
at Washington Cemetery in Brooklyn owned by the Mutual Benevolent
Society of Chevre B'nai Abraham Samuel Anshei Ashisker of Manhattan. I
found a listing for them on the Ackman and Ziff Institute website
which indicates that this burial society was attached to a
congregation for immigrants from Eisiskes, Lithuania. I have two
questions for you all about Chevre B'nai Abraham Samuel Anshei
Ashisker.

1. Does anyone have any information about this congregation?

2. I am new to researching burial societies and landsmanshaftn, so
please forgive my simplistic question. My question is, did all people
buried in plots owned by organizations like these come from the town
they were associated with? In other words, can I assume from this that
my great great grandfather came from Eisiskes?

Thank you all so much!
Laurie Duchowny

Index of Jewish Surnames in Cairo in the 20th Century #Sephardic

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

 

I just published on Avotaynuonline.com   an index of 1,689 surnames of Jewish families

which lived in Cairo during the 20th century with a short introduction about the

 methodology and the sources I used. It is certainly NOT a complete list and if I missed a

surname you know please please let me know. We can improve it only with your help. Here

 is the link

Re: who are or where is Bialostoker #Poland

Arlene G L Baldwin
 

Just checking to see if anyone replied to your question. 

If not, the area the Bialystoker is associated with is the Bialystok region which was part of the Pale of Settlement under Russia.  Since the end of World War II, the Bialystok region is part of Poland. 

Some people coming to the US joined groups (landsman or workmen's circles) of people that came from the same regions. New York had a large population of Jews from the Bialystoker area, including the largest Jewish community of Bialystok.  Lots of club and synagogue activities.

Although some records can be found the destruction in that region from WWII was massive.  I hope this helps somewhat in your research.

Thank you.
