Four postcards--need German transcription and translation #poland

Carol Sicherman <csicher@...>
 

I have been working for years on a family postcard collection.
Just when I thought the resulting book was complete, five more cards
miraculously surfaced. I have posted them on ViewMate. I would be so
grateful for both a transcription and a translation, since that is
what my book contains. Here they are:

Please respond on the form provided by ViewMate. I am deeply
indebted to the expert volunteers who respond to ViewMate requests,
and I thank you in advance.

Brick Wall - Aron Kanelskiy, possible immigration to Buenos Aires, Argentina #latinamerica

Bella Tseytlin
 

Dear all,

I have been searching for any records of my late grandfather, but so
far my search was unsuccessful.
Recently I have come with name Aron Ganielsky who has departed
Hamburg to Argentina on 4 of July 1908. The person on manifest has
same year of birth, place of birth, occupation and marital status.
In hope that the surname was misspelt I was trying to find anything
further, i.e. relatives left behind, or who paid for the passage, etc.
but found nothing.
Handwritten index for same person did not help either.

Born Aron Berko Kanelskiy, in Uman, Ukraine on 10 May, 1885 to Berko &
Malka Kanelskiy and died on 25 October 1949 in Karaganda, Kazakhstan,
where
he & his 2nd family was evacuated during WW2 >from Odessa.

Aron's first wife was Basya/Baya - Shimonova, surname unknown. She
died c.1917 - 1918, when my dad was 2 years old. The family had 3
boys: Khaskel/Khariton, born 1904, then Boris, and my father Yakov,
born1915.
Family lore is that before WW1 Aron being a member of RSDRP & worrying
persecutions left Russia for America or South America with few other
men and lived there for one year. He has returned to Russia, when the
party he belong to became RSDRP(B). All but one man returned to
Russia.
Aron's second wife (as stated on podvignaroda website) Faina Isakovna.
Together they had 3 more children - Iosif, born around 1926 and killed
during first few months of WW2 and girls - Oma and Musia.

Argentina has no vital records in English beyond 1895 and there is
nothing on other websites.

I've posted 2 family photos and a copy of manifest in hope that
someone might find names or faces familiar.

They are on ViewMate at the following address:

my search.

Anyone visiting NARA NYC and/or Munipal Archives in the near future? #general

Naomi Leon <naomi.leon@...>
 

If anyone is planning a visit to NARA NYC or the NY Muncipal Archives
in the near future, I would be most grateful for a couple of look ups
(2 naturalisation petitions and a death certificate). I will of course
cover any costs and I'd be very happy to reciprocate the favour here in
the UK.

Best wishes,

Re: Bessarabia SIG at Seattle Conference, summer 2016 #bessarabia

Dear friend,

I am very much excited to join many of our researchers in Seattle.

There are changes in the schedule of Bessarabian topics:
Unfortunately Amy Wachs cancelled her lecture: JEWISH LIFE IN THE REPUBLIC
OF MOLDOVA: PAST AND PRESENT (Thursday, August 11 at 3:00 PM-4:15 PM).

Instead of it we will have an after film discussion.
The film ABSENT will be presented by writer and director Matthew Mishory at
our Bessarabia SIG Meeting >from 11:45-1:15pm. (Film is 72 minutes long!).

In July 1941, the village was the site of an unimaginable atrocity.
Seventy-four years later, few speak clearly or honestly about what happened.
ABSENT is a cinematic portrait of the ghost village of Marculesti, its
current inhabitants, and their very complex relationship to their own
history. Working entirely on location, writer/director Matthew Mishory
documents one of Europe's poorest, most remote, and least-visited places.
Produced by Sabin Dorohoi, Edward Singletary, Jr., and Randall Walk. A
Romania-Switzerland-US co-production.
This film helps us to understand why we need to preserve our Jewish Heritage
in Bessarabia, why we need to photograph tombstones, cleanup the cemeteries.
For more information about the film, preview, press material, screening,
please see: http://www.iconoclasticmedia.com/absent/

The after film discussion will take place at 3:00-4:15pm, Thursday August 11
at Spruce Room. You will not find it in the program, because it is a last
minute change. Please make a note of it. We also going to talk about
Cemetery Restoration, the theme which is very much related to the film
ABSENT.

See you soon at the conference in Seattle http://www.iajgs2016.org/.
