Re: Do you recognize this lady? #general

You probably read the article in a popular magazine, i.e, not a medical
journal. A medical journal would have covered some of the ptient's features
to render her unrecognizable. In addition, the photo has a source in the
lower right corner (Rotosearch) and "copyright" indicated several times
over the photo. In short, this is a commercial photo, probably using
models, that was purchased for use in the article and the physician would
have no knowledge of the persons in it.

However, you might try contacting Rotosearch as a last possibility.

The lady in the picture is an exact double for my Mom.. She is in a
Level One Military Trauma Centers in San Antonio, TX that treats
civilian emergencies as well as military personnel. In 2014,there was
an article, written by Captain Steven R. Ellison, M.D. I tried to
contact Dr. Ellison without success. The lady appears to be having a
nurse administer an IV.

I would like to contact the lady's family and hope someone can
identify her. Please view the Viewmate image 53686.

Re: New York City research questions 1912-1925 #general

Many of the societies you speak of were formed around several things.
What I think is the most common is the community you came >from in
Europe. For example, my maternal family came >from Kolomea/Kolomyja.
They were part of the Workmen's Circle, Kolomea Branch, and my
immigrant grandparents were buried there in NJ. That was for those
who were not ultraorthodox. As time went by, other groups became
popular like the Knights of Pythias. They were not really a Jewish
group. Membership was just based on "belief in a Supreme Being" or
monotheism. But they had cemetery plots around the country.

I would recommend as a starting point, the location of the burial of
your relatives. Jewish cemeteries are often marked off by the
fraternal organization which sold the plot to its member. If your
family was poor, they might have been buried by the Hebrew Free
Burial Society.

Seems like this is partially a question about the groups and partially
a family specific question.

The question about the organizations: These existed as social and
burial groups and there are several sources about them. Starting the
Brooklyn JGS has a good database of the burial organizations that
tracks which cemetery they have plots in. Also the incorporation
papers for the organizations that went that route (to set up a formal
organization registered with the government) those organization papers
still exist and you can get a copy. And for the organizations that
survived to pass on their records most of them went to Yivo which has
them in their library.

However most of the organizations did not keep details on the
individuals especially I saw a question about schools and state census.
That is a separate research project.

Any idea how to identify institutions that may have records related to
a particular family or community, given that I have a timeline of their
presence in Manhattan and Brooklyn and information about Public Schools
attended ? Or ways of getting more family information?

(Poland) Polish Press Photojournalist Henryk Ross Documented Lodz Ghetto Photographs On Exhibit in Boston #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Polish press photojournalist, Henryk Ross (1910-1991) was forced to work by
the Nazi's as a photographer for the Jewish Administration, one of 160,000
prisoners was held in the Lodz Ghetto. His work depicts an extraordinary
insight to life in the Lodz Ghetto for its four years 1940-1944. He buried
his negatives in 1944 to preserve the historical record of what happened in
Lodz. He was one of 877 ghetto survivors. Returning to the ghetto after
Lodz's liberations, he discovered more than half of his 6,000 original
negatives remained intact.

"Memory Unearthed" is an exhibit organized by the Art gallery of Ontario,
Canada. It will be at Boston's Museum of Fine Arts March 25-July 30 with
over 200 of the photographs. The photographs depict the four years of the
ghetto where over 25 percent of the prisoners died >from starvation. To read

Lipcani Cemetery project #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Dear researchers,

As you all know we completed the Lipcani Cemetery project. It was a very hard work to finish it, and
thanks to many volunteers who helped. The cemetery has on its grounds graves >from 18 century,
which are very rare in Bessarabia. Some of the stones have beautiful ornamentation.

We have total of 1879 burial sites we identified (at least one of the names). We also submitted to
JOWBR 1806 photos of graves, and 567 photos of Unknown graves.

The 1879 records with photos are going to be uploaded to JewishGen in the summer of this year
(JOWBR updates the database twice a year!) The Lipcani Cemetery report as well as a set of
Unknown graves are available at Bessarabia SIG website, Cemetery section now.

For those of you who donated $100+ for the project, I am sending the whole registry to you.
I have already sent to 6 of our donors. It is possible that you donated for Lipcani Cemetery
project, but I do not know about it. Please let me know.

Also if you donate now to Bessarabia-Moldova Cemetery project $100, I will send you the
Lipcani Cemetery registry.

Please let me know if you have questions,

All the best,

JewishGen course: Complex Jewish Genealogy in the United States #france

Phyllis Kramer
 

Times change and family genealogists are becoming more genealogically
experienced, more sophisticated at researching major web sites; yet
organization and good research habits are necessary. Your best value
may be one of our personally mentored, one-on-one, JewishGen courses.

April brings our Intermediate Course, Complex Genealogical Research
in the United States.If, despite basic online research (census, vital
records), you have not yet found the Hebrew names, approximate birth
year and/or former European town(s) for your U.S. immigrant ancestors,
consider this course as it covers more complex U.S. topics such as
naturalization, manifests, death records, military and governmental
records (passports, visas, bankruptcy), and local archival research
(course begins April 3).

This 4 week genealogy course features our personal mentoring program
and our online FORUM. Students are encouraged to post an ancestral
branch, set goals for their research, and work one on one with the
instructor. We are proud of our unique, individualized format and
downloadable lessons.

Students should have 8-10 hours per week to read the lessons, search
online and interact with the instructor. Courses are open 24/7 to meet
the needs of international students. *Please* read the course
descriptions, instructor's credentials and requirements on
www.jewishgen.org/education. Course Registration is opens, tuition is
$150.
