Later in the day the Museum will have a public program that is also live-streamed
on Combating Hate in Europe. The discussion will be moderated by Washington Post
editor Fred Hiatt, three European ambassadors will share how they are addressing
religious persecution and extremism in their home countries. To watch the program

Many countries are commemorating International Holocaust Memorial Day on
January 27. I am posting this commemoration as their programs are live-streamed.

January 27 is International Holocaust Memorial Day as declared by the United
Nations. The United Nations and the European Union commemorate the same
anniversary with an event called International Holocaust Remembrance Day. It
started in 2005 when the United Nations marked the 60th anniversary of the
end of the Holocaust . The UN Resolution urges every member nation of the
U.N. to honor the memory of Holocaust victims, and encourages the development of
educational programs about Holocaust history to help prevent future acts of
genocide. The resolution further rejects any denial of the Holocaust as an event.
January 27, 2016 is the 71st anniversary of Auschwitz-Birkenau, being liberated by
Soviet troops. Today, many governments have legislated January 27 as an annual
Holocaust Memorial Day to mark the date as an international day of commemoration
to honor the victims of the Holocaust. The theme for the 2016 International
Holocaust Memorial Day is Keep the Memory Alive Some countries memorialize the
Holocaust on other days, for example, Yom Hashoah in Israel and in the United
States is commemorated on the 27th day of Nisan, the day of the Warsaw Uprising.
In Hebrew, Holocaust Remembrance Day is called Yom Hashoah. In 2016 Yom Hashoah is
observed on May 5.

Re: "Getting Started in Jewish Genealogy" #germany

GerSIG friend Christine Crawford Oppenheimer suggested that two basic
guides to Jewish genealogy research would be helpful in solving a
research problem.

The moderator used Google to look up the ISBN numbers for these
important reference books and added those numbers to Christine's
message to make finding them in libraries easier.

The less expensive book, "Getting Started in Jewish Genealogy" has
been published in several revised editions since it was first
published in 1999.

I've received this helpful note >from another GerSIG member:
Concerning the current, 2015, edition of "Getting Started", WorldCat's
info on that edition says ISBN 9780983697572 0983697574.

The book itself says ISBN 978-0-9836975-7-2 .

Information about the current edition, including the table of contents
is available via:

http://www.avotaynu.com/books/GettingStarted.htm

Avotaynu's price for the book is $14.50 plus shipping - estimated at
$5.00 per single copy.

Re: Where is Starsolar #general

Mark Halpern
 

Sheldon:

Definitely the Galician town of Stara Sol, which was in Poland during
the interwar years and is now in Stara Sil in Ukraine. During the
Galician times, Stara Sol was a Jewish vital records registration town.
It appears that the only Jewish vital records that have survived are the
1892-1903 births, which have been indexed by JRI-Poland and are
available online to search by surname. When searching the JRI-Poland
database at http://www.jri-poland.org/jriplweb.htm, you might also want
to search for Town = Stara Sol to capture indices of records in other
registration towns that refer to Stara Sol. Stara Sol can be found on
the Jewish communities database at

Greenberg family in Brooklyn and Florida #general

Isabel Cymerman
 

Dear Genners
I'm looking to re-connect with the GREENBERG family: father Ben, mother
Mary, son Joseph, son George. The brothers may have been half-brothers
(that is, Joseph's mother was not Mary). They were all born in Poland and
emigrated during or after WWII. Ben had a delicatessen in Brooklyn in the
1950s and 1960s. Some of them may have relocated to Miami, FL.

Thank you!

Follow up question to Emigration to Eretz Israel #general

nk
 

Last week I posted a question in an effort to find information on a
relative whose name appeared on the Panevezys District Group Emigration
to Eretz Israel (1933) list.

This individual's name does not appear in the Citizenship Files >from
the Israel Archives. My question is did all individuals who were
allowed to emigrate do so? What routes were typically taken? Were
there organizations who aided these individuals emigration or were they
left on their own to navigate their travels?

Thank you.

Offering NYC Look Ups - Vital Records and More #general

A. E. Jordan
 

I am available to do some look ups or getting copies of certificates at the NYC
Municipal Archives on Friday this week as well as likely to be at the NY Public
Library. If anyone needs something specific please contact me and we can discuss
if I can help you.

On these trips I am basically working as your eyes and legs for people who can not
get to the Archives or Library themselves. Generally what I do is transcribe
certificates where you have already found the numbers >from the online indexes or
sometimes check for missing records with the tools at the Archives. I ask everyone
to cover the costs including the printing of certificates (if you want them) which
is $11 each plus a little for me to help offset my travel costs.

At the Library I can access the newspapers and various databases plus sometimes
retrieve books and make copies.

What I do is take the details you have and in the case of the Archives I actually
look at each certificate on the microfilm before placing the copy order to make
sure it is what you said it was. Sometimes I have to clean up errors in
transcription of numbers, research >from your info to find the correct certificate
number. etc. I pay for the certificates and then trust you to reimburse me. I
can either scan and email or mail certificates. I type notes and email.

The Archives resources are limited to births through 1909 in New York City;
marriages with certificates to 1937 and the index go to about 1950 for the City
Clerk; and deaths through 1948. Beyond those dates are are some indexes at the
Library but that is about as far as I can go on vital records.

Please understand that generic searches when you only have vague details or are
trying to breakdown a brickwall that you have been working at for years requires
an investment of time beyond a quick retrieval and I can not include in this offer.

I am always happy to discuss any and all research questions involving NYC area
look ups.

The answer to your question is no. But we do have an excellent free White Pages
online: wwww.whitepages.com.au First select Residential rather than the default
commercial address tab, then fill in the blanks and you should find what you're
looking for.

FYI Melbourne is the capital of the State of Victoria.

Good luck,
