Weinblum / Wajnblum family #galicia

Tamar Weinblum <weinblum@...>
 

Hello

My husband's grandfather was Henoch Daniel WAJNBLUM

Birth:
October 11, 1882
Sochatschew, Gvt de Varsovie, Poland
Death:
March 27, 1936 (53)
Liege, Belgium
Place of Burial:
Liege Belguim

I wonder how can I get more information about his family, brothers
sisters and parents.

Thank you
Tamar WEINBLUM

Dear Tamar,

The town you mention is probably Sochaczew, Poland. As you can see in
the JewishGen Communities Database

http://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/Search.asp

this place was in the Russian Empire before World War II -- not in
Galicia. Therefore your message is off topic for this list. You might
try writing to the JRI-Poland list. It would help to clarify in your
message whether you know the names of HDW's parents and siblings.

Also, see "Utilizing Belgian Archives for Jewish Research" at
http://www.bloodandfrogs.com/2011/07/utilizing-belgian-archives-for-jewish.html

Good luck in your search.

Re: Identifying a Specific LDS Film Number #galicia

Due to the recent change in the film ordering procedure for Family
History Centers (orders are no longer accepted in the Family History
Center itself; all orders must be submitted online), all short-term
and temporary indefinite films at the Oakland Family History Center
are being made part of the permanent collection. The new procedure
has no provision to return films ordered under the old system.

been on the shelf in Oakland for more than a dozen years, but the
understanding is that Oakland will keep them for as long as they
have the shelf space.

Souvenir / family book for bar mitzvas #general

Ruben Weiser
 

I want to share with all of you the family book i made for my sons bar mitzva and
gave it as a souvenir to the atendants. I think it can give new ideas to others
that have the same idea on mind.

For many years i wanted to writte a book about my family genealogy research but who
in the family will be interested in dates and names like we (genealogist) are?.
Some time ago i had the idea to writte for my sons bar mitzva a small book with 13
stories with a nice teaching of 13 of his ancestors with an introduction to each
story with information about that ancestor. And in each story i added a picture of
the ancestor or the town were he or she lived and or the hedstone picture etc.
Most of the people liked the book and started to be some how interested in
genealogy.

Anybody interested to see the book ,just send me an email and i will be happy to
send it by email in pdf format. rubweiser@...

This is the index of the book:
1. David Ben Yerujem Tzvi Ha Levy Weiser / tzedakah
2. Miriam Bat Yehuda Leb Eisenstadter / do not complain
3. Rachamim ben Rafael Menalled Midamesek / devotion
4. Menajem ben Moshe Gelberman / honesty
5. Alexander Zishe ben Meyer Krausz / derej eretz
6. Rabbi Yekutiel Yehuda ben Elazar Nisan Teitelbaum / modesty
7. Rabbi Zusha of Anipoli ben Eliezer Lipman / humbleness
8. Rabbi Elimelej of Iezanjsk ben Eliezer Lipman / ani maamim
9. Rabbi Moshe Teitelbaum / peace
10. Rabbi Moshe David ben Rabbi Asher Anshil Ashkenasy / love for eretz Israel
11. Shaul ben Shmuel Rapaport / ve'ahavta lere'acha kamocha
12. Moshe Ben Yedidia Safdie (ha rishon) / leshem shamayim
13. Rabi Eliezer Lipman / A bundle of Greens

Hope it helps others to writte their family histories.

Where in the Czar's former empire were Moliv and Ekrasli or Ekraslinow?

(Moliv might be a misspeling of Mogilev. =A0I have no idea for Ekrasli

National Archives (UK) Digital images of complete WW2 Internees Index #germany

Peter.Lowe@...
 

Many of you will have used the records on the Moving Here website
(www.movinghere.org.uk) to download images >from the UK World War 2
Internees Index. However, this only included a small proportion of these
records, being a subset of people who were not interned - mainly women
and older men.

The National archives have now digitized all the microfilms >from the
series HO396. It is described as:
"Home Office: Aliens Department: Internees Index
This series contains records of mostly Germans, Austrians, Italians and
their spouses who were interned or considered for internment during the
Second World War."
Hitherto these records were only available at the National Archives in
Kew. Now they are downloadable, as PDF files, free of charge.

Go to
http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/documentsonline/digital-microfilm.asp
Click on "HO396" for a fuller description of the records.
Although onecan access the records >from that page, it is much easier to
do this:
instead of clicking on "HO396" , click on the hyperlink "Home Office:
Aliens Department: Internees Index". >from that page you can browse
through the 308 documents that are available for download.

This is a very valuable resource for German and Austrian immigrants,
giving birth dates and places, and other interesting details. In
principle it should be almost complete for all adult "Enemy Alien"
refugees. It can also help in locating UK Naturalization files preserved
at the National Archives (though not digitized), as it gives the Home
Office file reference number.

Waking up on Day 4 at IAJGS Conference #germany

Jeanette R Rosenberg OBE
 

Hello again everyone, >from Washington DC!

Is it really day 4 already? The conference is so busy and it=92s going
very fast! Thank you to all the GerSiggers who are sending emails
about my conference postings, they are much appreciated.

Perhaps at this point I should add that I=92m not the only person
providing updates of the GerSig content at conference. For an
alternate view, you may wish to read the blog >from the Jewish
Genealogical Society of Great Britain. Mark Nicholls, JGSGB=92s
Chairman is blogging each day and is including information about
GerSig happenings. He=92s a GerSigger too, and here I must declare some
considerable interest, he=92s my husband! The blog can be found here:
www.jgsgb.org.uk/blog/

Yesterday morning we held our GerSig Meeting. The room was packed and
the agenda was busy. As soon as I can I will be producing a summary
of the meeting. This was our agenda:

Website Update by Arthur Obermayer
Obermayer Awards Update by Arthur Obermayer
Mailing List & Moderation Update by John Lowens
Projects Update & Discussion
Naldex Update by Roger Lustig
Harburg Project Roger Lustig
All Germany Database Proposal by Joe Fibel
Aufbau Update by Alex Calzareth
Stammbaum2 by Jeanette Rosenberg & Linda Levine
GerSig plans for future IAJGS conferences & Speaker Bureau Fundraising
by Nancy Adelson =96 for 2012 in Paris, France, 2013 in Boston & 2014 in
Salt lake City, Utah.
German Jewish Gersig DNA Project Update by Janet Akaha
Hessen BOF Update by Janet Akaha
Report back >from GerSig in the UK by Jeanette Rosenberg

In the afternoon I made my own conference speaking debut. I=92m told it
went well. I shared lots of information very very fast with an
extremely full room. I think we need to convince the organisers that
100 chairs are never enough for GerSig. I=92m hopefull that all the
slides >from my talk and those >from all the other GerSig relevant talks
will be made available on the GerSig website after conference. All
our sessions are records, so if you want to buy copies, they should be
available to order.

After my talk, and as Mark=92s blog notes, a private reception was held
for those who donated to the GerSig Speaker Fund. The donations
allowed us to bring our Guest Speaker Gerhard Buck over to the
Conference >from Germany. It went well, thanks to the coordinated
planning of all the GerSig Directors, but evedn bigger thans is due to
our donors. You know who you are, and we really could not have done
it without you. Donating to the GerSig speaker fund allows us to
deliver this kind of high level presence for GerSig at conference.

Today, well in about one and a half hours time, in fact, Roger Lustig
and I will be co-hosting GerSig=92s Breakfast with the German Research
Experts. We are open to questions and answers >from those present, so
come one, and come all. I will tell you how it went in my next
posting.

Later this morning, Gerhard Buck will be speaking about Reconstructing
Historical Jewish Nassau Communities, and then early afternoon will
bring the German Embassy experience. I=92m not exactly sure what that
will entail, so I will be there to find out!

Our GerSig content for today ends with a further talk >from Roger
Lustig on New German-Jewish On-Line Resources. I am really looking
forward to that.

Off now to prepare for another very busy day. More tomorrow! Jeanette
