I would appreciate a translation of the Russian text of the 1872 Bilgoraj,

especially the names of the groom's and bride's parents, the groom's and
bride's ages and places of birth, the actual date of the marriage and the
names of the witnesses.

It is on ViewMate at the following address:

Re: What is the meaning of the kof-heh-apostrophe honorific on a tombstone? #general

Roger Browdy
 

Further to my message below of last week, I have now uploaded a photograph
of the headstone in question to ViewMate. It may be seen at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM64011

I have a photo of a headstone in NorthEast Hungary (at the time - now Slovak
Republic), >from 1884. Before the name of the decedent and before the name of his
father is the abbreviation: kof-heh-apostrophe.&quot; I am curious about the
kof-heh apostrophe honorific used before both names. It is unlikely to stand for
Kohen as they would have just used the final nun instead of abbreviating it. Also,
if he was a Kohen, there would likely have been a carving of the priestly hands,
rather than a tree at the top. Has anyone seen this abbreviation before?

Transports to Auschwitz - follow up #hungary

drjudystone@...
 

Thank you for the outpouring of information; I am awed by your response.

I had tried Bad Arolsen and they said their records are incomplete.
www.oradeajc.com contact and forum links are not working.

I was not familiar with http://degob.org/tables/kassa.html
Given the dates family were taken >from Sarand, they must have been on
the June 27 transport >from Nagyvarad.

I'm a little confused about the dates.

There is a discrepancy, it seems, between one reference (Randolph
Brahamâ??s book) saying transport left Nagyvarad on the 27th and Kassa
list (http://degob.org/tables/kassa.html), having gone through there
on the 27th.

Gabor Hirsch's note says "passed Kassa on 27th June and arrived in
Auschwitz-Birkenau on 29th." (another aunt, who found her wedding pic
in a coat in "Canada" believed her dad died on the 29th as well).

per Randolph Brahamâ??s book) June 27 was the last transport, so it
couldn't have passed through Kassa that day. His book adds that Jews
from Derecske and nearby villages were brought to Oradea on June
16â??17, so I know they couldn't have been on the June 5 transport (also
know >from my interview with Kati).

How many days was the train >from Nagyvarad through Kassa to Auschwitz?
Kati thought the hellacious trip took more than a week.

Thank you so much for your interest and help. It is touching.

Obermayer Awards Jury President Karen Franklin Featured in New Ann Curry PBS Program We'll Meet Again #germany

JewishGen German Research Division Coordinator
 

The (US) Public Broadcasting System (PBS) premiered a new show on January
23, We'll Meet Again. This program attempts to reunite people >from their
pasts.

In this first episode, the focus was on Children of World War II.
There are two stories in the episode, one of a Japanese American living in
the United States during WWII and the other about a man, Peter Engler, now
in his 70's who fled Germany with his parents to Shanghai after
Kristallnacht, his life in Shanghai and the friends he made there-the
Adlers. While he left for Israel with his parents, and then moved to Canada,
and now lives in the United States he wanted to find the daughter of the
Adlers he knew in Shanghai.

The daughter was one year old and he 14 when the families went their
separate ways. He needed the help of a Jewish genealogist, Karen
Franklin, who as many of you know is a past president of
IAJGS, served as the co-chair of the JewishGen Board of Governors.
Karen currently is the director of family research at the Leo Baeck
Institute. She is Jury President for the Obermayer German Jewish History
Awards.
I won't take away the ending, but this story
goes >from Europe to Shanghai, to Australia and the United States.
Also shown in the story is Linda levy director of the Archives of
the Joint Distribution Committee which also helped Peter on his
journey. Linda has spoken at several IAJGS conferences (27:00).

One can watch the entire episode at
http://www.pbs.org/video/children-of-wwii-wdudwr/
While Karen starts at 40:21 the story of this person begins at 8:32 and goes
back and forth with the other story depicted. It is well worth sitting
through the entire episode and have a box of tissues handy.
