(Australia and New Zealand) Anzac Day/Week Remembrance Centennial April 25, 2015 #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) Day commemorates the landing
of the Australian and New Zealand troops on the Gallipoli Peninsula, Turkey
in WWl on April 25, 2015. Both countries hold ceremonies, parades, reunions
and other activities to remember those who participated or died in military
action.

ANZAC Day is celebrated on Saturday April 25, 2015. Because it falls on a
Saturday it is being observed on Monday April 27 in New Zealand and in most
states in Australia - see the two links below about activities to learn if
your Australian State is celebrating on Monday or Saturday.

As part of the WWl centennial, the WWI00 Program has over 850 projects and
activities already listed on the website, http://ww100.govt.nz/. If you
had an ancestor who served as and ANZAC you may find the information on the
website of genealogical value.

A found manuscript: How to publish? #general

Felicia Alexander
 

Dear Fellow Genners:

I recently discovered a 400+ page typed manuscript buried in a box
full of other family "stuff". To my delight, it was written by my
grandmother, sometime before her death in 1944. The book is
semi-autobiographical and lays out her family's migration to
Boston and Philadelphia >from Stavishche (then Russia, now Ukraine)
circa late 1880's and then tells their story as they became Americans.
In many ways, it reminds me of Mary Anton's famous book, Promised Land.

As I read this book, I sat with my laptop open to fact check and record
notes. I was thrilled to fall in love with this book, its vibrant Jewish
families and the way my grandmother wove the permanent impact of being
an immigrant and Jewish into each of her characters' storylines. I
literally could not put her manuscript down until I finished it and had
taken considerable notes, including many references to synagogues,
community events and leaders, city maps, etc. to corroborate the
scenarios in the book and their relationships with actual historical
events.

This book is very accurate historically and may be worthy of publication,
if I proceed correctly.

At this point, I need feedback >from those of you who have been successful
in publishing manuscripts written by ancestors. I know that my first step
must be to transcribe the aging typed manuscript, using "spoken-word to
text" software so it can then be available digitally. I will also be
adding annotations where needed.

Can any of you point me in the right direction after this? Any and all
suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Re: Seeking help with COHEN/VOLK/WOLK surname #general

Eric Svirskis
 

With respect to this correspondence it is worth noting other
possibilities: my GGM (>from Lithuania/Belarus) was a VOLK, but
also noticed in some documents as VALK, WOLIK, also WOLLOCK
(& arguably WALLACH).

My feeling is that many names need to be approached not too
literally but as a phoenetic approximation. Hope this helps -
maybe you need to cast your net a little wider.

The given name Valk (Yiddish) and its variants such as Volk,
Wolk etc are derived >from the Hebrew name Rafael. The name
falls into that group of Hebrew to Yiddish given names which are
'first syllable truncations'. If then the original family name

Yes. My aunt is one of the names. I have been working with people for the
past 5 years searching for the women in this camp. I will be part of a
documentary film that will be shot in Gabersdorf on the occasion of the
70th anniversary of the liberation of the camp. Journalist and daughter
of one of the survivors, Marisa Fox Bevilacqua, is organizing this
historic event.

Forums. By 1996, he created a weekly online newsletter called "Eastman's
Online Genealogy Newsletter" which has grown >from a circulation of 100 to
more than 60,000 genealogists.

DAVID family from Salank, Hung., (Shalanky, Ukraine) #general

Roberta Solit
 

In 1896 my great grandfather Nachman RAPAPORT, a widower, married
Tobi Lovi DAVID, also a widow. Tobi was >from Salank, Nachman lived
in Magya Komjat, a town 4 miles >from Salanka in the Sub-Carpathian
area of Hungary.

In 1898 Nachman's daughter Riza RAPAPORT marries Tobi's son Mozes DAVID.
Riza and Mozes had 3 children, 2 sons and 1 daughter. I would love to
learn about the two brothers, they might have died before the war.
The daughter's name was Machlah DAVID. I believe she survived the
Holocaust and at the end of the war she was in Bratislava.

Would like to hear >from anyone having any information about this family.

Thank you,
