Urgent request from Yad Vashem #general

Rachelle Berliner <rlberliner@...>
 

Attention All Jewishgenners who have found their ascendants to be Holocaust
victims but not listed on Yad Vashem. The first line of this request says it
all. Rachelle Berliner

Let no Holocaust Victim be Forgotten

It is extremely important that we do not allow the Nazis to obliterate the
memory of those they and their cohorts murdered. As you will see below, half
of the six million have been remembered at Yad Vashem. But that means that
three million are still missing.

Please take the time to make certain that each and every members of your
family who perished during the Shoah are recorded at Yad Vashem. You can
access their website and do your own search. The urgency of the matter is
that 60 years after the Shoah ended, those who remember our brothers and
sisters who were killed are becoming fewer and fewer.

New Community Outreach Guide for Holocaust Remembrance

Let no Holocaust Victim be Forgotten
Dear Friends,
Yad Vashem invites you to join the historic mission of the Jewish people to
memorialize every individual Jew who perished in the Holocaust through the
collection of the ultimate representation of their identity: their names. To
date, half of the six million victims have been recorded in the Central
Database of Shoah Victims’ Names (www.yadvashem.org), where one may access
their brief histories and, when available, their photographs, and submit
additional names online.
Millions of victims may be forgotten forever, unless we recover their names
today.
We are pleased to offer a new online community outreach guide to initiate
local Names Recovery Campaigns. Packed with valuable resources and
materials, this free guide will enable Jewish communities to plan and
implement meaningful memorial programs, names collection events and related
activities around Yom Hashoah - Israel’s national Holocaust Remembrance Day
(this year, 25 April) and other significant dates in the Jewish calendar,
such as 10th Tevet, 17th Tammuz, 9th Av, Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
The guide is designed for use either by an individual or group, such as a
synagogue, community center, welfare agency, survivor and next generation
group, university or school. You can use it to call upon members of your
community or organization to complete a “Page of Testimony” for each
unregistered victim, or to volunteer to assist others with this urgent task.
To access the Community Outreach Guide visit:

Join today, before the generation that remembers is no longer with us.

Re: Name of a shtetl SE of Lodz, Poland #general

Roger Lustig <julierog@...>
 

Tomaszow Mazowiecki fits the bill.

Now, I didn't know that until one minute ago. But if you ask
Mapquest.com for a map of Lodz, it's right there. You don't even need
the ShtetlSeeker for this one!

All of which is to say: www.jewishgen.org has lots of powerful tools for
resolving common genealogical queries, and the Internet as a whole has
many more. Give them a try!

Odp: Genealogical research in Warsaw, Poland #general

Julia Koszewska <julia_koszewska@...>
 

just two remarks:
participating in The March of The Living won't give you the time to make a
research. to make a research in Warsaw you can ask for some help in Jewish
Historical Institute or some private genealogical researchers.
Informations about archives and informations available about genealogy in
Poland you may find on JRI-Poland website.

If you would like me to help, do not hesitate to write/ask.

on a weekend, so any resources that I might be able to search through
will most likely be closed. I'm seriously considering travelling to
Poland a few days earlier than the main trip, in order that I might
conduct some research before joining the main trip. My main questions
are what resources are in Poland that would be invaluable for my
research, and whether it would be beneficial to go there in person (as
opposed to contacting them via email, FAX, or written correspondence)?

Any information or advice that you could provide along these lines
would be greatly appreciated.

"Searching for Ships in the Boston Microfilms in One Step" covers the same years as "Searching the Boston
Passenger Lists in One Step": 1820-1943.

From: "Joy Rich" Subject: Three Steve Morse Announcements

Steve Morse has updated his One-Step form that searches ancestry.com's Boston
Passenger Arrivals database. The database now covers 1820-1943, whereas it
previously included only 1891-1943. Steve generated a list of all of the M277
roll numbers and dates to allow access to the manifest directly by roll/frame
or by date using the One-Step "Searching the Boston Passenger Lists in One
Step." He also generated a list of all of the Boston ship arrivals in the
1820-1891 period for the One-Step form that searches for ship arrivals,
"Searching for Ships in the Boston Microfilms in One Step." Both are listed
under "Other Ports of Immigration" at http://www.stevemorse.org.

Steve also just created a One-Step form for searching zabasearch.com. He now
has four One-Step forms capable of obtaining birthday information. The other
three are for ancestry.com, birthdatabase.com, and
privateeye.com/peoplefinders.com. They are the first four items listed in the
"Births, Deaths, and other Vital
Records" section at (http://www.stevemorse.org).

Steve also just implemented two new features on his One-Step search form
"Converting Address to Latitude/Longitude." Retitled "Converting Address
to/>from Latitude/Longitude in One Step, " you can now also convert in the
opposite direction - >from latitude/longitude to an address. You can now also
convert more than one address or more than one latitude/longitude at a time
by using Batch Mode. The One-Step is listed under "Calendar, Sunrise/Sunset,
Maps" at http://www.stevemorse.org. At first blush, this may not seem to have
much to do with genealogy, but Steve has found that the latitude/longitude
search tool gets a very large number of hits.
