Thank you Logan.
This is so very helpful. Though my Lwow grandfather death details
I have found elsewhere. Any Idea how many records are there in the list?

Re: Offering Look Ups at NY Public Library #general

As far as I know, there is a microfilm copy of The NYC City Clerk's
Marriage Indexes for the various boroughs >from about 1937 to about 1951 at the
NYC Municipal Archives. That particular set has helped me find a few marriage
records that took place in the 1940s.

The NYPL also have groom and bride indexes up into the mid 1950s.

Actually they only have marriages through 1937. After that is at the
Health Department. (I asked to confirm at the Library today.)

The Library has births and deaths but not marriages beyond the Archives.

Hungarian Proof of Residency to Avoid Deportation #general

Moishe Miller
 

Dear Group,

Happy Father's Day to everyone.

Perhaps someone can help me in two ways.

I would like to know where I can learn more about something my late
uncle told me. He said that as a resident of Nyirbator, Hungary, the
family was able to prove they had lived in Hungary for four generations
and as such avoid some type of deportation. What can you share on that?

My uncle gave me a copy of the four pages of proof that they used. Can
anyone translate the pages for me >from the Hungarian? I have posted them
here:

Dear Mr. Marc Piel,



your information is correct, we can instal
memorial-plates in Vienna for victims of the shoa.
But we can do this only on behalf of persons who
want to have such a commemoration.

We enclose an informations sheet (in
English and German) >from which you can see that
the total cost of a memorial-plate (stone of
remembrance) of the size 20x20cm is Euro 946,80.

Our Non Govermental Organization will do
all the necessary work listed in the
informations-sheet as “preliminary work” and
“action” on a voluntary basis. In addition we will
try to receive public support in the amount of
Euro 446,-. To reduce *your contribution to Euro
510,- only*.

So please tell us if you are interested to
have a commemoration-plate for the Friedländer
family installed in the side walk in front of the
house 3. Vienna, Esteplatz 5; and if you can pay
the said amount of Euro 510,-. Should we receive
this money until 25^th of September 2014, we can
guarantee that the memorial-plate will be produced
and installed by November 18^th 2014.



Following, please find the information on Mr.
Friedlander Wolf as it is registered in

new e-book of Freud Biography by Jones #austria-czech

We've just published an ebook edition of the famous Freud biography,

Press. You can find the whole list there.

Latest Publications from Yizkor Books in Print #austria-czech

Donald & Sandra Hirschhorn <sdh2381@...>
 

Recently, two new titles joined the ranks of hard cover books published by
the Yizkor Books in Print Project part of Yizkor Books Project of JewishGen,
Inc.

The first is: "Brest-Litovsk - Volume II Encyclopedia of the Jewish
Diaspora" a translation of Brisk de-Lita: Encyclopedia Shel Galuyot. The
original Yiddish volume was edited by Elieser Steinman and published in
Jerusalem in 1958. The name of the town, Brest-Litovsk, indicates its link
with Lithuania. Although founded by the Slavs in 1017 and invaded by the
Mongols in 1241, it became part of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania in 1319, and
in 1569 it became the capital of the unified Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.

The town is also known as "Brisk," in Yiddish to the Jews who lived and
thrived there for six centuries. Jewish "Brisk" had an illustrious history;
the famous Brisker Yeshivah attracted scholars >from all over Europe. The
list of Rabbis of Brest includes Solomon Luria and Joel Sirkes, in earlier
periods, the Katzenellenbogens, and three generations of the Soloveitchik
dynasty in more recent times. Brest also produced Jacob Epstein the great
Talmudist at the Hebrew University, Menachem Begin, and many other major
religious, literary and political leaders. In 1923, Jews made up 60% of
Brest's population of 60,000. Brest, Belarus is located 203 mi SW of Minsk.

Written by Brest survivors and former residents >from many countries who
contributed their memories of their hometown as a record for future
generations, and as testament and loving tribute to the innocent Victims of
the Shoah, it is a must read for researchers of the town and descendants of
"Briskers."

The list price is $56.95. Available at Amazon for around $41. Also available
at Barnes & Noble and check the JewishGen website
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip/YBIP_Brest.html for further
information and non-U.S. sources.

The second title is "Grayewo Memorial (Yizkor) Book" It is a translation of
Grayeve yisker-bukh (Grayewo Memorial Book) Editor: Dr. George Gorin, New
York. Originally Published by: United Grayever Relief Committee, 1950.
Grajewo is located 114 mi NNE of Warsaw in Poland. Alternate names for the
town are: Grajewo [Polish], Grayavah [Yiddish], Graevo [Russian], Grayeve,
Grayevo.

Jews have been living in Grajewo, in the province of Bialystok, Poland since
the late 17th century. The 1765 census counted 83 Jewish people and by 1857,
the number had grown to 1,457 comprising 76% of the town's population. By
1921, the percentage of Jews had decreased to 39%.

During the Soviet occupation, between September 1939 and June 1941, Jewish
businesses were nationalized. The Nazi invasion of Grajewo on 22 June 1941
marked the beginning of the devastation and horrors thrust upon the Jewish
population. Within a few months, 1,600 to 2,000 Jews had been sent to the
transit camp at Bogosza and on to the extermination camps at Treblinka and
Auschwitz.

The list price is $49.95, available on Amazon for around $36. Again, see
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip/YBIP_Grajewo.html for further
information and non-U.S. sources.

WWI casualty lists searchable, high-quality images at Upper Austrian Regional Library #austria-czech

Logan Kleinwaks
 

Very clear images of World War I casualty lists for Austria-Hungary
are viewable and full-text searchable on the website of the Upper
Austrian Regional Library. To search the casualty lists, enter your
search term (e.g., surname, surname and given name, surname and town)
at http://digi.landesbibliothek.at/viewer/browse/periodika.verlustliste*/-/1/CURRENTNOSORT/-/.
In the list of search results, click on a thumbnail image to show a
medium-size image with the matching text highlighted. Even larger
images can then be viewed by 1) clicking the full-screen button above
the medium-size image and then using the zoom slider at the top, or 2)
moving the grey slider above the medium-size image to the right to
zoom in. When zoomed in, an image can be clicked-and-dragged to
change the section that is visible.

The search results for these images (generated via OCR) seem to be
(much?) more accurate than those for the same lists at other sites
(e.g., Austrian National Library at
http://anno.onb.ac.at/anno-suche/#searchMode=complex&title=Verlustliste+&resultMode=list&from=1&sort=date+asc
or Kramerius Digital Library at
http://kramerius.nkp.cz/kramerius/handle/ABA001/24665809). This might
be because of the superior quality of their images.

The Upper Austrian Regional Library has not yet posted all its lists
online. They have so far posted about 40% of known lists, and are
digitizing more each day, essentially in chronological order from
earliest to latest. It remains to be seen how much their online
collection will ultimately overlap with the others in scope.

Finding a Holocaust survivor #general

Jenny Schwartzberg
 

Dear JGenners,

A cousin asked me to figure out how a Holocaust survivor, Bryna Bar Oni,
was related to her. We think it's through her KUZNITSKY family which
was >from Bialystok. She remembers being told that Bryna was related to
her years ago by older family members.  Bryna wrote a Holocaust
memoir, The Vapor (Chicago: Visual Impact, 1976). She apparently came
to the US after the war in 1946 and settled in the Chicago area
where she had cousins. She seems to have used a pseudonym for the
book and appears to have married so would not have used the family name.
Also, I've started to check through the book but it does not list last
names only first names for her parents and siblings. They lived in Byten
before the war and then hid in the forest.

Can anyone help me figure out what was Bryna's name in the US and
in Europe so I can try to answer my cousin's question?

Dear JGenners,

A cousin asked me to figure out how a Holocaust survivor, Bryna Bar Oni,
was related to her. We think it's through her KUZNITSKY family which
was >from Bialystok. She remembers being told that Bryna was related to
her years ago by older family members.  Bryna wrote a Holocaust
memoir, The Vapor (Chicago: Visual Impact, 1976). She apparently came
to the US after the war in 1946 and settled in the Chicago area
where she had cousins. She seems to have used a pseudonym for the
book and appears to have married so would not have used the family name.
Also, I've started to check through the book but it does not list last
names only first names for her parents and siblings. They lived in Byten
before the war and then hid in the forest.

Can anyone help me figure out what was Bryna's name in the US and
in Europe so I can try to answer my cousin's question?

Yours in frustration,
