Upcoming Talk at the Jacob Gitlin Library - Save The Date #general

Janine <gitlib3@...>
 

"A Tragic Romance and its Consequences: >from One Photo to Journeys of Research
and Discovery!"

Presented by Eli Rabinowitz, visiting >from Perth, Australia:

"All I ever knew was that I was named after my great uncle Moshe, and that
Moshe died in a motor accident in Salt River, six weeks before his wedding.

Then a photo given to me eighty years after he died changed everything.

This is the story of Great Uncle Moshe and his fiancee Paula's ill-fated
romance in the late 1920s, starting in Orla, Poland, and ending in Cape Town.

My part begins with this photo, offered as a "reward" for my enthusiastic
interest in my family history. While the photo came with only limited
information, it became my mission to follow any leads and so try to unravel
his life, piece by piece. It led to surprising outcomes that drove me to
research, follow the trail and travel to South Africa, Poland, Belarus, the
UK, Germany, Israel, the US and Canada in search of the answers!"

This presentation covers the story of a life, which ended 85 years ago, and
the principles of good detective work and sharing.

This was the lecture Eli gave in July at the IAJGS Conference in Jerusalem.

The Jacob Gitlin Library, Cape Town on Thursday 3 September 2015
5:30pm for 6pm

Site Cite- History of Jewish Communities [in German] #germany

Dennis Aron <dennisaron@...>
 

I found an interesting web site, in German, by Klaus-Dieter Alicke
in November, 2013, that gives a summary of the Jewish community
history of a great number of German speaking towns that includes
a bibliography for each town.

It's called Aus der Geschichte der juedischen (umlaut u) Gemeinden
im deutschen Sprachraum.

The address is http://www.xn--jdische-gemeinden-22b.de/index.php/home

A posting said: "Would it be possible to request that all list members not
only capitalize the surnames in their e-mail messages, but also include a list
of all the surnames with places of origin/residence in their signatures?"

I made a list of all my surnames for a IAJGS conference once. It was 2 columns
on a piece of paper, both sides. This was a long time ago, and I have a lot
more surnames now, so how would I follow your suggestion. We are only allowed 6
lines for the names; they wouldn't fit.

If you want the list, I can send it to you.

MODERATOR NOTE: As Sally notes, there is a six line maximum for names/towns one

names/towns through their lists with each new post. That way all may be posted
within the JewishGen Discussion Group guidelines.

More on BARNETT or BUNYON or BOYER, Ukraine #general

Hi,

I have recently received a copy of Michael BARNETT's UK naturalisation papers
1904. It says he's >from Tarashtia in Kieff.

When I put Tarashtia into JewishGen town finder it gave me Doroshivtsi, Ukraine
which I felt just didn't match.

I went to a site called http://m.viamichelin.com/ and when I checked Tarashtia
I got Tarascha which seemed to make more sense as the town which I am researching.

On other JewishGen sites JewishGen Community Database and International Jewish
Cemetery Program the town of Tarascha appears.

Does anyone have any information/relatives >from this town?

Thanks in advance,

Bessarabeska Jewish Cemetery, Faleshti Jewish Cemetery #general

Yefim Kogan
 

Hi everybody,

I want to let you know that we received initial sponsor's donations for work
in Bessarabeska Jewish Cemetery, Bendery Uezd. That town, shteitle had one
of the oldest Jewish cemeteries in Bessarabia. Bessarabeska previously was
named Romanovka, and Romanenko was one of Jewish Agricultural colonies in
Bessarabia, and the cemetery exists on the map of 1840 Bessarabia! Please
consider donation to the cemetery project (to Bessarabia-Moldova Cemetery
Project)!

The second cemetery - Faleshti, I got only part of the initial money. Who
is interested, please consider donation and please let me know the amount.,
and we can start soon the project. Actually Faleshti has two Jewish Cemetery:
Old, and New. Faleshti Cemetery (assume OLD) also exist on the map of 1840!

I encourage you to donate $100 for a particular cemetery to
Bessasrabia-Moldova Cemetery Project. In this case you will receive the
whole Excel table with records before they will appear at JewishGen. Also
if you find your relative(s), I will send you ALL photos we have for that
grave. In some cases we have 2-3 photos.

If anyone want another Jewish Cemetery in Bessarabia be photographed and
indexed, please let me know, and I will tell you approximate cost of the
photos (indexing are done by volunteers!)

Re: Johannesburg SA cemeteries on JOWBR #general

ab.cohen@...
 

Steve Stein is confused about where his ancestors lie.

Both Braamfontein and West Park cemeteries are in Johannesburg and have Jewish
sections. Braamfontein opened in 1888 and West Park in 1942.

I looked on http://www.jewishroots.uct.ac.za/ (a very good new database for
South Africa) and found 24 Lupinskys and the names he mentioned are all in West
Park. Maybe JOWBR is also confused - I didn't look there.
