Database of Holocaust Survivors and their Families #general

Suzy Lampert
 

I was referred to this discussion group by the JewishGen help desk.

I have come back to jewishgen after years of inactivity. I remember
using a jewishgen Holocaust database that allowed Holocaust survivors
and their relatives to search for each other. The Holocaust database
I'm trying to find (used it a few years ago) is the one where
survivors searching for family members list their names, country, camp
they were in, last place lived, year they were taken to the camps,
names of people they are looking for, etc. Also in this database,
family members can list the relatives they are looking for who may
have survived.

The JewishGen help desk says this is not a JewishGen database and
suggested I try the US Holocaust Museum, but it wasn't part of its
database either.

Can you help?

ViewMate translation request - Polish to English - Piszczac, Poland #general

Jarrod Oviss
 

Hi All,

Images 9372 and 9373 [see below - MODERATOR] are >from the same
original image but had to be broken up as per size limit.

I believe this image is in reference to the Marriage of Mordko OWIES to
Chana WOLOCH in 1862.

I would really appreciate it if I can get a *full word* English
translation of the images, but also I'd like to have it retyped in
Polish (were possible). I understand that this is some work and thank
whomever helps out with this greatly.

It is on ViewMate at the following addresses:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM49372

ViewMate: Cyrillic Russian documents in need of translation #general

Lynne Kaffko
 

I have submitted 2 death records to have translated. One is for Israel
KAWKA and the other is for Raszka Kawka. Both records have one thing
in common, the father, Leib Gerszk Kawka. I believe Leib Gerszk is
my husband's grandfather. The only way I can prove this is to have
as complete translation as possible. Israel looks to be the son of
his second wife. Raszka might be the daughter of his first wife.

If at all possible, I would truly appreciate a full translation,
but if not, as much information that could be gleaned >from these
documents that will help me identify him as my husband's grandfather.

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Thank you so very much.

Husband taking wife's name #lithuania

Jan Rabinowitz <rabinowitzster@...>
 

I have several instances where the husband took the wife's name. One
family even did that after they arrived in the US. The other left
Lithuania with the "new" name. Both instances were late 19th century
rather than early. Neither family is a direct ancestor of mine, so I
have no info on whether or not there's a reason behind the change.
But both did occur with wives with the same surname. Presumably, this
may have happened due to the higher social status of the wife's
family. Both men took the surname WENDER.

adoption of wife's name #lithuania

Shlomo Yaakov Rapaport
 

I have many examples in my family tree of the woman's last name
being adopted by the husband. Usually the reason for this lies
in the Yichas of the family where she comes from. I have also
examples that the woman gives her last name to the children
but not adopted by the husband usually the women is not satisfied
with her her marraage but is forced to marry and stay married but
her protest is the denial of the father's last name and the use
hers >from her father

Seek names of students & teachers at the Juedische Maedchenschule Berlin (The Jewish School for Girls) #germany

I am seeking lists of names of the students and teachers associated
with the Juedische Maedchenschule Berlin (The Jewish School for Girls
Berlin). Many were deported and killed. Some were able to emigrate.

My mother, Mary KROTOCZYNSKI, attended the Juedische Maedchenschule
Berlin >from 1933 to her graduation in 1937. She left Berlin on the
Kindertransport in 1939.

Part of an extensive network of schools run by the Berlin Jewish
Council, this school drew >from the Jewish teachers expelled >from the
lyceums who taught traditional subjects that would have been covered in
the public schools, plus Hebrew and Jewish culture.
After years of neglect, the building of Maedchenschule was repurposed.
Today it houses a restaurant, art gallery, and the Kennedy Museum. More
about the school: http://www.maedchenschule.org/en/history.html. I have
not been able to obtain the information I seek >from the current
management of the building.

I would appreciate information and advice regarding my search.
