Locating Yad Vashem Submitters for Traw from Rozniatov #poland

Raanan Wlosko
 

Hello all

Recently I found a search bureau of the Jewish Agency for Israel
for missing relatives filled by my maternal grandmother about 50
years ago.

The search result in the early 1950s was negative.
The names that my GM was looking for were Mordehai and Ester Traw
from Rozniatov, children of Israel Traw.
The exact relation was not mentioned.
I found 2 Yad Vashem Testimony pages for Israel Traw >from Rozniatov,
the submitters were Mordechai and Ester.
Unfortunately I failed to locate them, I doubt if they still with us
but maybe their children are.
To my best knowledge no one of my GM family survived WWII, it's a
chance to rediscover the family.
Any help concerning locating the submitters will appreciated

Thank you

Senderoviez from Pultusk #poland

Raanan Wlosko
 

Hello all

Izak Senderoviez and Jura Wosk Senderoviez, born circa 1895, had 4
children - Malka, Ester, David and Shepsel. All were last seen on
the bridge crossing the Narev River when exiled >from Pultusk in
September 1939.

According to Yad Vashem testimony page all were sent to Auschwitz.

Jura Wosk Senderoviez was my paternal GM aunt.
Unfortunately we have no record, document or picture of them to shed
some light about their life.
I don't know any one >from the Senderoviez side.
I'm seeking for information about Izak and Jura Senderoviez Family
from Pultusk.
Thank you

contacting family of Hilari Dziedzic in Israel (1957 page of testimony) #poland

MandJMeyers <mandjmeyers@...>
 

I believe I've found my grandmother's aunt Golda (nee ZYLBERMAN)
DZIEDZIC in the Yad Vashem on-line database. Her family was >from
Chorzele and Przasnysz. A page of testimony was submitted in 1957
by her nephew Hilari Dziedzic. Does anyone have a suggestion on
how I might pursue this?

Thanks,

Jewish Records Indexing - Poland / Polish State Archives #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

Dear fellow researchers:

At the IAJGS conference in Philadelphia earlier this month,
we made an announcement concerning the renewal of
cooperation between Jewish Records Indexing - Poland
and the Polish State Archives.

We told those in attendance that a new indexing project
and the re-institution of an order processing system are
both under discussion.

While it may be possible to have a new agreement in
place by early next year, there are many points to be
clarified and negotiated. As a result, there could be a
considerable delay in resuming both the indexing of
records and the order-processing system.

Therefore, should you be interested in ordering records
from the Polish State Archives, please note the
following two options:

1) You can immediately order records >from the appropriate
branch of the Polish State Archives. See the suggested
procedure at http://www.jri-poland.org/psa/neworder.htm, or

2) You can wait until the new JRI-Poland order processing
system goes online and then order the records using
a system that we expect will be far more streamlined
and will not require payment by costly bank transfers.

When there are more definite developments, we will let you
all know.

Executive Director
For the Board of Jewish Records Indexing - Poland

Ladies visiting Bolechow this August/September #galicia

David
 

I met a group of ladies at the Gesher Galicia BOF at the Philly
Conference who are going to Bolechow very soon. They may indeed
be there now.

I am wondering if they're planning to go to Rozniatow as well.

If so, could someone >from the group contact me directly
(off-list), immediately, as I have a huge special request of them.

Thank you.

Viewmate Images - searching for HEMPEL #general

Alicia Weiss
 

I am hoping some kind Genners can help with what are my only (flimsy)links to my
maternal grandparents, who disappeared when my mother was a child. Their names were
Edward and Sarah [Pressman] Hempel, although I believe they likely adopted one or
more other names after leaving Philadelphia in the 1920s. Moreover, I am not
convinced that Edward Hempel (or something like it) even was my grandfather's name
in Poland. Much mystification! I currently have 2 files posted on ViewMate.

1)VM13347 is a Rosenbaum Bank Record for a journey made in early 1915 >from
Goldsboro, NC to Philadelphia, PA. Under the heading of S.S. Line is an
abbreviation that appears only to be Bro. Does this suggest a S.S. line that might
have taken domestic passengers between Philly, PA and the Goldsboro, NC area, to
someone familiar with early 20th C maritime history? I have contacted the Jewish
Philadelphia Archives Center where I obtained the record, but they were unable to
help. The Baltimore & Ohio RR has been suggested, but the abbreviation seems wrong.
(Remember B&O RR of Monopoly board fame?), Also, as far as I know, the B&O's
major NC stops were Raleigh-Durham and to get to Philly would have involved so many
changes and to quite an inefficient mode of travel. The direct link is
http://jewishgen.org/ViewMate/viewmateview.asp?key=13347

2)VM13353 is a photograph of my very own genealogical brickwall, the mysterious
Edward Hempel, taken at the popular Sluztky's Studios of South Philly. My best
guess is it was taken around 1920. I know little about him, other than that he
came to the US >from Poland around 1912 and is listed as a painter/artist on my
mother's 1915 birth certificate. Direct link:
http://jewishgen.org/ViewMate/viewmateview.asp?key=13353

It would not surprise me to learn that Sarah and Edward had other children, under
another name. For obvious reasons given the times, I hope they did not return to
Poland. In any event, it would mean a great deal to learn what became of them and I
would be grateful for any help. Thanks very much in advance.

Dear group,

I would very much like to build our collection of photos. Recently I was
contacted by a person asking me whether there were any other resources - an
archive of photos - where he might be able to hunt for pictures of his
family >from Ciechanow. What we have is the beginnings of an archive. If we
could develop it into a significant collection it would be very beneficial.
Please give some thought to what you or your family members may have by way of
photos relating to Ciechanow.

Re: Relatives in manifests #general

Martin Miller
 

For whatever it's worth, I can cite a couple of examples.

My grandfather was traveling to an "uncle" in Brooklyn in 1911. Since I knew almost
nothing about my grandfather's family I spent years tracking down the family of the
"uncle." I was able to learn that the "uncle" came >from the same town (Virbalis,
Lithuania), but I can't figure out any way they could have been related.

My wife's relative came with his future wife and a child as a family of three,
using her family name! By age and first name, I'm guessing that the child was the
future wife's first cousin. One surname instead of three.

Another relative has a cousin listed on the manifest as her oldest child, but the
ages were way too close for the cited relationship to be believed. However, even
though the relationships weren't what one might have thought at first glance, there
was actually a lot of information to be had.

I wouldn't assume that she wasn't a "true" older sister just because it might
have been easier to emigrate if the immigrant claimed to have a close relative.

be likely to call someone a sister who may not have been one.

Re: Linking trees #general

Sally Bruckheimer <sallybruc@...>
 

I have used Geni, and through it I have connected to distant cousins - some that I
didn't know existed, although I have found others that I did know that knew them.
I have also gotten a lot of corrections and updates as well.

But this is an entirely different subject than the one which started this thread,
which was making trees out of records on JRI-PP. In this case, there is no basis
for linking up people found in records other than the records exist. In many cases,
this will be correct - in the small towns where many ancestors lived, many
relationships were what they seemed. However, there would inevitably be cases
where two or more grandsons were named after a deceased grandfather. Then,
depending on who had a birth record there, and who had a marriage record there, and
who had a baby born there, it might easily occur that one was linked up with the
wrong branch of the tree.

If you don't think this a problem, one ancestor of mine was one of 9 grandsons
named after the single grandfather. Try to keep them all straight!
