Hi Genners,

I need help in figuring where Oszowe is in Vilna Gubernia.
It is clearly marked as such on a 1912 ship manifest.
I have searched on JewishGen to no avail: message archives
and towns of Vilna gubernia. Any ideas???
My index to Lietuvos Zemelapis--a map of Lithuania published by the
emigre community that includes historic claims--all of Litvakland--lists
Osowo (Pol), Asava as a "church village"--a town big enough to have a
church. I do not know if this is your town, but the sound correspondence
is pretty good. The only problem is -sz- for a 'sh' sound, but 's' and
'sh' could be confused by Litvak yiddish speakers.

Czech Torah Project #general

Chuck Weinstein <cmw521@...>
 

On Wednesday, August 7, at the Conference, I will present the how to do it
of a project I have been working on to remember the Jews of Miroslav,
Czechoslovakia, a small town in Moravia.

A Torah >from Miroslav >from the Czech Memorial Scrolls Project is on permanent
loan at Temple Beth El in Huntington, NY. Of the Jewish community of about
425 in 1938, I have documented the fates of close to 400, of whom about 35
survived the war.

My talk will cover the resources I was able to consult and how the temple
has chosen to remember Miroslav. I will explain the Czech Memorial Scrolls
Project, a brief history of how these scrolls were collected and documented,
and all of the various ways I was able find documentation on the Jews of
Miroslav. This project is replicable at any of the over 1,500 synagogues
world-wide (including over 1,000 in the US) that has a Czech Holocaust
Torah. It is also valuable for those who had family in any of the Jewish
communities of the Czech Republic, specifically Bohemia and Moravia, that
were not heard >from after the war.

If your synagogue has one of these Torahs or you are looking to research
people >from Bohemia or Moravia, I hope to see you at the conference.

Re: Hessen Data: I've joined the effort, and you? #germany

levyliz@...
 

Dear Friends,

I was so excited to see the Hessen data on line and then Roger Lustig's
tremendous effort to begin indexing the information. After having spent
endless hours at the Archive for the History of the Jewish People in
Jerusalem going over miniscule records with a magnifying glass until my eyes
were bulging out of my head, I was inspired to join the project and help
prevent further blindness for my fellow Gersiggers.

I chose to do the records for *** Kreis Fulda *** in honor of my mother who
was born in Fulda and my grandfather who was born in Flieden.

It's challenging work to read the records but I'm excited by the idea that
lots of others will be able to trace their family records easily with the
assistance of these records.

If you have a little bit of free time on your hands, I invite you to join
the team. Please contact Roger (GerSIG.Research@verizon.net) to "claim" your
region. With warm regards,

Elizabeth Levy, Mevassaret Zion, Israel levyliz@smile.net.il

Re: death in Buchenwald - burial in Vienna #germany

Yvonne Stern <yvstern@...>
 

A few remarks to help Lin Herz with her research on her ancestor killed
in KZ Buchenwald and buried in Vienna:

a) KZ Buchenwald was one of the largest camps on German soil and
has been extensively researched and documented.
As a first step I suggest Lin to ask Gedenkstaette Buchenwald for
details about this prisioner and similar cases, and to read about
the role of the Resistance in this camp.

b) The distance in air between Weimar and Vienna is 480 Km;
road distance is 708 Km, and travel time today is about 7 hours.

c) Buchenwald administered 90 subcamps. During the height of
World War II this number reached 136. Some of these sattelite
camps were located near the border with Bohemia,
d) In the Buchenwald Victims Database I found :

http://totenbuch.buchenwald.de/names/details/page/11/letter/o/person/2237/ref/names
Michael Orlof
Date and Place of birth: 22 Nov.1882, in Cherson, Ukraine
Date and place of death : 02 Jan.1940, in Buchenwald

SHRAGIE family Montreal #general

Neil@...
 

Looking for information on the SHRAGIE family that married into the DITKOFSKY
family in Montreal.

Two Ditkofsky brothers (Daniel Joseph and Abraham Samuel) marrried two Shragie
sisters (Riva Leah and Mary).

Then comes the question - Abraham married secondly to Fanny, former wife of
Hyman Shragie (parents of Abe, Harry and Betty CHWAKIN).

So how does this all fit in?

Thanks

ViewMate request - Do you recognize people in a picture from South Africa, ~1930 #southafrica

Roy Ogus
 

I've posted a picture on ViewMate that was taken around 1930 of either a masonic
lodge committee in Klerksdorp, South Africa, called the Royal Order of the
Buffaloes, or of a Hebrew Order of David (HOD) committee in Potchefstroom.

The photographer was Alec Chambers recorded in Potchefstroom in the 1922 directory.

The picture can be found at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=28174

Do you recognize any of the men in this picture?

It is believed that the person in the 2nd row, 2nd >from the left is Mr. B. M.
Rudick.

Please let me know if you can identify any of the others in the picture. Please
respond using the online ViewMate form, or in a private message to me.

Thanks for your help.
