3 Cheers! - maybe even 4! #general

s_wiener@...
 

I would like to thank the entire JGSLA and especially the chairs of the 30th
Conference, Pam, Sandy & Lois, for a terrific and informative week with great
presentations and entertainment. I know that there were many LONG days as well
as sleepless nights for you - but you pulled off a spectacular event!

Many members of our San Francisco contingent remarked to me during the week
about what a great time they were having. For about 1/2 of them, this was the
first Conference that they ever had attended. We even signed up two new
members for our association.

As always, it was a pleasure to spend time among a group of people [and this
year that was about 1000] relentlessly pursing the same ends - learning about
our rich individual and common family heritage, wherever that may take us.

I wish everyone a year of successful discovery. Maybe we'll meet again in D.C.
for the 2011 Conference.

BMZ Home - Chicago #general

George J. Fogelson
 

My great grandmother's death certificate states she was born in Vilstin, Russia
and that this information is >from the BMZ Home Records where she lived on
1648 S. Albany Ave in Chicago. She died in 1941.

I have not been able to find a reference for VILSTIN, Russia so believe it must
be a misspelling. I also can not find any reference to the BMZ Home.

Her name was Bluma Marshak, daughter of Isaac Jaffe. I was told the Jaffas were
from H'irsk in the Ukraine.
Thanks for any clues you can give me. I know next to nothing about the Jaffe's.

I'm new comer to this group, as my previous research of Romania / Ukraine
/
Galicia has expanded to Kattowitz too.

Please forgive my ignorance, as may be revealed below.

I'm looking for a birth record of the late Wolfgang JURGRAU (or YOURGRAU),
in order to find more information about his ancestors. Known data is:
1. Given Name: Wolfgang, or Wolfgang-Heinrich, or
Wolfgang-Heinrich-Joachim.
2. Surname: JURGRAU (or YOURGRAU, or FEDERMANN) 3. Birth date:
14-NOV-1908,
or 16-NOV-1908, or 18-NOV-1908.
4. Birth town: Kattowitz
5. Father's given name and surname: Josef(?) JURGRAU (or YOURGRAU) 6.
Mother's given name and surname: Selma FEDERMANN Important note: According
to some sources, the father might be non-Jewish.

I've searched the All-Poland and the JRI databases - with no success.
Where should I go in order to find firm data about this person?

Concentration Camp Victim Research- Beginner Questions for Experienced Researchers #general

Larry Ward, MD MBA <llward3@...>
 

In the course of genealogy research on my own (non-Jewish) and my wife's (Jewish)
families, I came across a family record of a family of 7 who all died in
"concentration camp". I have limited info on them. The father was born in Stryy,
Galicia, Poland, and died in Poland at a camp, year unknown. The mother and
children all died in 1944, camp unknown, and the birth place for all the children
is listed as "Austria". I have their names, but besides that, nothing else. They
are Moshe and Taube (Friedlander) Gottesman, and children Lola, Gustav, Isidore,
Rosa, and Bertha.

I did a surname search on JewishGen, but did not come up with any records
applicable to the family I am seeking.

While these are distant relations, I would like to do them the honor of documenting
where they died, and to thereby make their stories more personal for future
generations. I will also, when time allows, try to fill in their life records,
as well.

I am aware of the great number of camps that existed, and that families were
frequently separated. Where does one find documentation >from camps that can be
researched? Any advice, links, recommendations would be most welcome. Thank you!

Telsiai Vital Records:Progress #lithuania

Dorfleiv@...
 

Last October, the Telsiai District Research Group began translating the
Telsiai Jewish Community vital records. This morning I loaded new data
to the www.Telsiai.shutterfly.com site which houses the district reseach
group's large collection of data. Births 1854-1909 have now been
translated - almost 5800 lines of data which includes families >from
outside the city itself. Marriages for the period 1854-1915 have also
been completed. A surname frequency list can be found on the home page.

We need funds to continue with this and many other projects for Telsiai
District. The Telsiai DRG requires a $200 contribution. Your contribution
provides access you with access to Internal Passports and various Vital
Record sets for shtetls in the district. Data >from the archives in Vilnius
and Kaunas for each shtetl has been translated but new record sets await us.
All our data is provided in Excel format which makes it really easy to
work with.

Join the Telsiai District Research Group today or make an additional
contribution today at: www.litvaksig.org/contribute and support our
continuing work.
