In my efforts to trace my aunt, Teofila Lewkowicz (born 1912, Lodz),

Italy where she possibly studied Medicine in the1930s.

[I am not certain whether it was Teofila who studied there, or her younger

I would appreciate any info or ideas regarding where a student >from Lodz

New Procedures to Search the JGFF #poland

Susan E. King <susan.king@...>
 

Within the next few days, you will notice a change when you visit the
JewishGen Family Finder (JGFF). We are now implementing a registration
screen similar to that which has been in use for searching the Family
Tree of the Jewish People (FTJP) for the last few weeks.

This change is part of a major project which has been under development
for nearly a year called "CURE" -- the Central User Registration
Environment. The intent is to cure many of the ongoing challenges
JewishGen has faced due to the phenemonal growth we continue to
experience. These challenges include forgotten passwords, lost
researchers, and duplicate registrations. Most critical is the
increasing need for tightened security which will result in greater
protection for the data you provide.

CURE will integrate all the separate registration processes for the
JGFF, the FTJP, all Lyris Mailing Lists, ViewMate, ShtetlSchleppers,
JewishGen-erosity, the JewishGen Mall, the Guest Book, and the
interactive databases. CURE will also serve to integrate the systems
used for JewishGen's administrative functions. Over the coming months,
all of these interfaces will be replaced with a single central logon and
registration point -- CURE.

Here's how it works. When accessing the JGFF to perform a search, you
will now be asked to logon using either your e-mail address or your
JewishGen ID Number (JGID, formerly called the "JGFF Researcher Code"),
and your Password. If you have forgotten either, they can now be
retrieved automatically by using <
http://www.jewishgen.org/CURE/password.html >.

What CURE will do for JewishGen is enable us to better manage all of our
programs, assist in our planning process and provide the information we
need to better serve our constituents.

In addition to greater security for your contact information, your
benefits will include not having to worry about updating your contact
information individually in each program or mailing list, but to update
it in one place and one place only -- CURE. We expect this "one stop
update" to be a great convenience and believe it will also result in far
fewer "lost researchers" who forget to change their e-mail address in
each and every place it is listed on JewishGen.

The new CURE logon screen will apply to the JewishGen Family
Finder(JGFF) within the next few days. For complete information about
the JGFF, see the "JGFF FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions about the JGFF"
at < http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/jgff-faq.html >.

In the coming weeks, this logon screen will also be implemented across
other JewishGen programs and databases and we will be posting notices
accordingly in each of our mailing lists. =20

We welcome your feedback and comments on the new system so that we can
continue to make this process easier!

Mordechai:

I do not have any specific information, but I would like to
direct you and others to two very good sources for research of
ancestors >from BIALYGen area towns and their organizations in New
York.

The JGS of New York City [http://www.jgsny.org/] has two
databases of value:

1. 10,200 Burial Societies In The New York Metro Area, a database
which is searchable by town name or keyword. I searched this
database for Tykocin burial societies, went to Old Montefiore and
walked the plot. Found an interesting name (same as my great
great grandfather) and was able to find an entire branch of my
family living in Long Island, Florida, and Israel.

2. New York Landsmanshaftn and Other Jewish Organizations, a
database of lists of Landmanschaften >from various sources. Check
out American Jewish Year Book 1907-1908, New York City
Congregations and Works Progress Administration (WPA) Yiddish
Writer's Group Study (1938) for "Congregation Mogen David Anshei
Choroszcz." Maybe these references can give you some direction.

I have heard that the State Insurance department may have
information about organizations like burial societies that become
defunct.

I am looking for information about a farm village called KESSELENNE. It
was near Moletai.

This is the place where the Ribacks and Fishers of Moletai that I am
related to came from. The last reference is about 1900. Itzak Riback is
mentioned as being born there abt 1800

I can not find any information on this place. If any one knows anything

Hello Hanna,

Regarding your message on Litvak-Sig, my mother's family (ADELSON,
GORDON, PERCZYK) came >from Butrimonys. Fortunately, most of them
emigrated to the US before the Shoah, however my great-grandmother
and two of her grown sons were murdered by Lithuanian partisans doing
the work of the Nazis. There is an old Jewish cemetery there, but I
can't tell you exactly where it's located.

There is a wonderful book called "If I Forget Thee . . . The destruction
ofthe shtetl Butrimantz" testimony by Riva Lozansky, edited by Olga
Zabludoff, published by Remembrance Books. Mrs. Lozansky describes in
detail the horrors of the round-ups and extermination of all the Jews of
Butrimantz, including names and pictures. Riva Lozansky and her sister,
Tsila Shenker,were the only Jews still living there until recently,
when they both passed away. I recommend your friends get this book before
visiting Lithuania.

Also, to quote >from a photo in the book, " . . . At the memorial for the
mass graves in Alyta where many Jews >from Butrimantz were murdered in 1941.
The graves are in the huge, dense Vidzgiris Forest where the victims
were brought and shot." The memorial is a quite large Mogen David

I hope this helps a bit. If your friends cannot find the book (try Yad
Vashem), I'll be happy to look up any names they may be searching for.

Dear Siggers,

For a visit of friends of mine in Lithuania, I'm looking for Litvaks who
visited in two Shtetls:

1. Giedraiciai, Vilnius uezd, Vilnius guberni, Also known as Gedrevitz.
Between the two wars was in Poland &#8211; now in Lithuania.

2. Butrimonys, Trakai uezd, Vilnius guberni, Also known as Baltromantz,
Butrimants, Butrimoniai, and Butrymanzy.

We would like to know wheter it's possible to find in each of the
places a
synaoggue/Beit-Midrash, a Jewish cemetery and/or a memorial for the
Holocaust victims.

Do you know if there are any Jewish people living in those places.

Many Thanks,

Dear Siggers,

For a visit of friends of mine in Lithuania, I'm looking for Litvaks who
visited in two Shtetls:

1. Giedraiciai, Vilnius uezd, Vilnius guberni, Also known as Gedrevitz.
Between the two wars was in Poland &#8211; now in Lithuania.

2. Butrimonys, Trakai uezd, Vilnius guberni, Also known as Baltromantz,
Butrimants, Butrimoniai, and Butrymanzy.

We would like to know wheter it's possible to find in each of the
places a
synaoggue/Beit-Midrash, a Jewish cemetery and/or a memorial for the
Holocaust victims.

Do you know if there are any Jewish people living in those places.

Many Thanks,

H. Kochavi
