Updates to LDS data on the JRI-Poland website #poland

hadassahlipsius
 

Just before the Annual IAJGS conference, JRI-Poland updated
our database with more LDS data and more image linking.

Files for the following towns were updated or added.

Belzyce, Biala Podlaska, Bychawa, Czyzewo Osada, Dubienka, Glusk,
Konskowola, Kurow, Lublin, Markuszow, Michow Lubartowski, Mlawa,
Piaski Luterskie, Pleszew, Przytyk, Pulawy, Sniadowo, Staszow,
Swiersz, Terespol, Warszawa, Wieniawa, Wlodawa, Wohyn, and Zakrocym.

The updates added over 65,000 additional LDS records to the
JRI-Poland database.

I would like to thank our wonderful team of volunteers who
worked tirelessly to make JRI-Poland such a success.

Happy Searching!

Looking for information on Rabbi Isaac Jacob WEINER #latvia

Looking for information on Rabbi Isaac Jacob WEINER. He is my Great
Grandfather. He immigrated >from Jakobstadt, Latvia in the 1920s and
came to Chicago.
He wrote a book (http://hebrewbooks.org/33317) and all I know is that
he was a butcher in a kosher slaughter house somewhere in Chicago. If
anyone has any information or a suggestion on where to look that would
be greatfull

"Courland-Kherson Jewish Relocation, 1837-1840" database #general

Charles WALOWITZ
 

Dear Friends,

We are happy to announce the completion of our project.
The "Courland-Kherson Jewish Relocation, 1837-1840" database
is live and public on JewishGen.

Here is this dataset's introductory description file:
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Ukraine/Relocation1837.htm

This database contains information about 5,872 Jews who
relocated >from towns in Courland to agricultural colonies in
Kherson Gubernia in 1837 and 1840.

The documents were handwritten in Russian, and reference the
years 1837 and 1840. The documents cover all the major towns
in Courland Gubernia -- Bausk, Friedrichstadt, Gazenpot, Goldingen,
Grobin, Jakobshtat, Libava, Mitava, Pilten, Polangen, Tuckum,
and Vindava. Unfortunately, these documents do not specify
to which of the Kherson colonies these Jews relocated.

These records were photocopied by the Latvian National Archives
(Latvijas Nacionalais Arhivs).

Re: Classes for Jews under Nazi occupation #germany

jberlowitz <jberlowitz331@...>
 

Judy Vasos inquired about letters >from relatives in Amsterdam telling
about classes in sewing and English. I don't think I'm being too
cynical if I mention the letters my relatives in Chile received from
Nazi-occupied Berlin. Some told of family members going off to
practice winter sports. Another letter speaks with admiration of how
her husband has slimmed down through exercise. Yet another speaks of
the cozy new living arrangements with other relatives. Breaking the
code: winter sports = deportation; diet and exercise = forced labor,
and co-housing = eviction. None of the letter writers survived. I
hope Judy's did and that they can confirm the benefits of those
classes.

Re: Jacob MARX and Babette AACH #germany

Jacob MARX is not an unusual name. I think it's likely that were are two
people of the same name involved and that the Jacob MARX born in 1880 was
not the one married to Babette AACH. He may well have been a member of the
same family.
