New Class >from JewishGen Education

JewishGen once again offers its popular publishing class November
3 - 27. This personal mentoring class will focus on writing short
reports.

There comes a time when you want to write up your research. After you
have worked hard to collect your family data why let it sit in a drawer?

Publishing a book requires an attention to detail, editing, footnotes,
bibliography which often discourages us >from publishing at all.
Sometimes we just want to write it out and share it in a short summary.

Want to share with a relative; or compare with another researcher you
find on JGFF or Ancestry or Geni or Facebook? Need to gather and
organize your data to hire a researcher? Want to self-publish a small
coffee table scrapbook or photobook just for fun?

In this class we will help you organize your data, notes and media
files to create 3 short-standardized reports.

This structured class uses a series of lessons and a forum setting
where you will post your work and interact with the instructor who
will make suggestions as you write your rough draft, edit and finalize
each report.

Requirements: You should have enough data collected or knowledge of
your chosen surname to be able to write their family history. You will
choose one family to work on as you build a template that you can use
for other families and persons of interest.

JewishGen classes are taught in a private forum setting that is
password protected. It is open 24/7. The 3 week class starts November
3 – 27. Tuition is $150.

(Catalonia, Spain) Secret Route for Escaping Jews During WWll #general

ab.cohen@...
 

Jan Meisels Allen mentioned the secret escape routes across the
Pyrenees into Spain during WWII.

A couple of weeks ago BBC television screened a series by Monty Halls
called WWII Great Escapes in which Monty travelled some of the routes
and interviewed survivors who had travelled and those who helped them.
Episode 3 dealt with the Pyrenees route and the incredible difficulties
faced by escapees, both British and American servicemen and the Jewish
refugees.

Well worth watching.

(Hungary) Yad Vashem Project to Identity 80% of Hungarian Jews Murdered in Holocaust #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Haaretz wrote about a Yad Vashem project searching 200,000 Hungarian Jews
murdered in the Holocaust whose names were previously unknown. Not only did
project identify people by name, but also learned about their birth dates,,
where they grew up, learn parent's names and other family members names.
The project is called the Names Recovery Project which collected the names
of Hungarian Jews murdered in the Shoah for Yad Vashem for the past decade.
They added 225,000 names to the 260,000 names they had in 2007 resulting in
80 percent of the Hungarian victims having names. They compiled their own
list of Jews who were deported by using archive searches of census records,
correspondence, employer records , confiscated property and more. The
archives were located in Hungary, Romania and Serbia, all part of Hungary
during World War ll. The names of hundreds of thousands of Jews were
entered into the Yad Vashem database. These were not names provided by
Pages of Testimony but >from documents in archives.

Yad Vashem is using the same model for other name gathering projects for
Poland, the former Soviet Union and the Balkan nations.

Seeking information about Jews Serving in the KK Landsturm #general

Deborah Dworski
 

I obtained a marriage record which noted the groom's assignment to the
KK Landsturm District Command No. 36 in Kolomea on January 1, 1902.
I'd be grateful for any information about this military unit and its
function. Was it common for Jews to serve in this capacity? Might
this snippet of information lead to any records pertaining to the
individual or the unit itself?

According to family lore, the groom died 10-15 years after marrying
when he was grazed by a Russian bullet and subsequently developed
blood poisoning. I don't know exactly when he died, but it was likely
during WWI. With this unexpected news of military service, I'm now
wondering if he might have been wounded during combat. I'd appreciate
any thoughts about this possibility.

Please respond privately.

Sincerely,
Deborah Dworski
U.S.A.

LEMKIN FAMILY RESEARCH #belarus

lixhope@...
 

Hello,

I have just joined this emailing list as I am about to go to Lviv, Ukraine
for a conference on renowned legal scholar Raphael Lemkin who coined the
term genocide. We share the surname but our family connection has never
been known. I'll be arriving in Belarus >from Oct 28th for 10 days before
the conference.
My great grandfather's UK naturalisation papers are being opened on
Monday in the Public Archives but I believe he was born somewhere near
Vitepsk. I would love to have feedback >from anyone who has been to Jewish
Heritage sites in Belarus particularly Slonim or others in Vitepsk region.
How best to get there? Any stories about Lemkin family members in Latvia from
where my great grandfather, Samuel, departed with his wife Sophie Samuels,
to start a new life in England. My grandfather whom I knew was born in
England in 1894.

Many thanks,
