(USA): Shoah: Visual History Foundation - extraordinary resource #general

Carol Raspler
 

The USHMM (United States Holocaust Memorial Museum) is just one of 30
repositories containing the video interviews of 52,000 Shoah survivors.
Those videos contain 1.2 million names.

For those of you attending the Genealogy Conference in Washington this
August 14-19, I urge you to go to the Museum (they have many computer
terminals available to you) and type a name into the Foundation website.
You may find information very pertinent to your genealogy searches.

And if you are not attending the Conference, you may be surprised to learn
that you live close to one of the 29 remaining repositories. This tool is
invaluable.

http://dornsife.usc.edu/vhi/scholarship/archival_access/

http://www.shoahfoundation.org/

USC (Univ. of Southern California, Dornsife College) holds the principal
repository.

Good luck to all,

Researching descendants of people from Vienna #general

LISBETH
 

Hi Genners

I just returned >from a trip to Vienna where I found a lot of
information concerning my mother's family, into Archives of IKG.
Many thanks to Mr. Eckstein, who has finally provided answers to some
questions who they took my head since 6 years, without I can
advancing.

In fact in 2006 I was looking for my ggfather's siblings, Rektor Jozsef
(b. march 25, 1856 in Szent Yohann, now Moravsk). He was married to
Josefa Zilzer in Budapest, then they came to Vienna where was born
my grandmother.

After a few minutes searching on his computer, Mr. E. gave me a list
with the names of my ggfather's brothers, the maiden name of each wife
and the names of their respective children.

Mr. E. also given me the offspring of Adolf KILLER (maiden name of
side of my ggmother Sonnenfeld) for who my research was also
unsuccessful since 2006.

My question: for the public are there an internet link to find the
descendants of a person, especially for people living in Vienna, when
we only write the name and surname into the computer ?

I would appreciate to know if this link exists for other countries

Many thanks for your reply

New York Passenger Arrivals List #general

Janis Quaile <jfquaile166@...>
 

Hello, I have been researching for a few years and have been
successful in finding many family members, both living and gone.
I have a conundrum that I cannot solve. My maternal great-grandparents
arrived in NYC in 1905 or 1906. I HAD found the correct information
in 2008, but my computer crashed and the backup did not copy the
information >from my FTM software. I have searched the Ellis Island
site many times since and cannot locate the information again. The
names are Saul Morris Kazanofsky, Chana Kazanofsky, Sadie or Shaine
Bluma and Zelda Kazanofsky. I remember that it was spelled
differently. His naturalization papers indicate they were on the
"Umbria" that left Liverpool and entered the USA on June 2, 1906.
You would think it would be easy, but I cannot find anything.
Any suggestions would be Greatly appreciated.

Re: Name change in Galicia #general

Janette Silverman <jsilverman@...>
 

My question is: How did name changes in Galicia take place and are
there any documents on >name changes?
Henry Wellisch

Although I don't know how name changes were made or the process that a
person went through to do this, I can tell you something of how they are
recorded in records at least in Tarnipol, which of course cannot be
assumed to be generic for all of Galicia. Two years ago I visited
several archives in Ukraine, among them Ternipil. One thing I noted as
I examined records was a notation on some records that a name had been
changed and what the new name was. It was clear that the notations were
made years after the original record, and were written by a different
person because the changes were dated and the handwriting was different.

Welsh / Jewish research #unitedkingdom

Robert Fraser
 

Dear Friends -

An acquaintance who recently (and very briefly) visited
Perth as part of a world cruise has handed me a research
project, probably
because he knows I am doing my own research, although it's
in a totally different area.

This person is not in a position to do it himself. Welsh
born, he now lives in Oxford, and is quite elderly (90+)
and legally blind, or effectively so. He is therefore unable
to read or write letters, never mind use a computer, and
only phones me occasionally when a helper dials the number
for him.

But I digress - this man is fairly convinced that an
ancestor, maybe gg-grandfather or thereabouts, was Jewish.
He lived in Trelech, a village in West Wales and was named
Morris DAVIES or DAVIS. He was a tailor. He had sons with
very biblical-sounding names, don't know what they were.

It's not much to go on, but the possibility is there. And
I'm not in any position to do much good, like looking up
local archives or censuses, if they exist at all.

Can anyone offer any words of advice? Or maybe someone with
time on their hands could adopt this project?
