veteran. Click on the arrow to view the short video. You will also be able
to see other Ancestry videos following the short video.

When you put in the name you are searching a new window will open with the
list of records Ancestry has for that person. Now a green "View" box with
free access under the green box appears. The "view" is what you need to
click only. On the right there is an offer to start a free trial. That is
NOT the free military offer and if you go there you will be invited to
subscribe with providing your credit card information. No credit card
information is requested or required for the free access military records.

The free access is for their US military collection. Only access the US
military records through this link: www.ancestry.com/honor . (I tried
several of the other Ancestry sites but did not find the free access to
military records on those sites.)

https://search.ancestry.com/search/group/war_all

You are required to register with your name, email address and password and
will be directed to do so when you try to view any of the records. Note,
this is a free access therefore, if you are directed to subscribe with a
requirement to pay this is not the free access military records. If you try
to access the military collection after November 12 or try to access any

frame you will also be invited to subscribe.

Markt Berolzheim #germany

Lin Herz <lin2@...>
 

Hi GerSIG Friends,

I received two documents >from the volunteer archivist of Markt
Berolzheim, Daniel Burmann. I'd be glad to send them to anyone
interested.
One is a list of the Jews living in MB in June of 1938 with signatures.
The other is Mr. Triedtel's fourth grade class around 1932. Those
children who were killed in WWII are marked.

If you are interested in either document, Id be happy to
forward. My cousin Judy's father is in the class, that's
why Daniel sent it to me. Have a great weekend.

Sincerely, Lin Herz Palm Bay, Florida lin2@cfl.rr.com

Getting further information about records found on JewishGen #general

mike yesnes
 

Discussion Group,

When you go on JewishGen.org website pages, now you are on Ukraine SIG,
have a map of the Podolia Province{example}, select Vinnitsa District,
page of various project listings. Some are in progress/not completed.
I have seen elsewhere when it says completed and there is the open
book icon, click on. There are the microfilm descriptions and etc.
So basically you can order these microfilms >from the FHL in
Salt Lake City in Utah?...but they are in Russian/Ukrainian languages?
and/or volunteers >from JewishGen are translating/entering this information,
otherwise it's not English?...or do you contact the archives in Ukraine
and request they look up the name/town/year/etc you give them
based on what is completed by JewishGen.org?

Basically information >from JewishGen.org website pages is
different >from the information/documents found through RTR Foundation
after >from the archives in Ukraine and etc?...
Is the only way to get the information on JewishGen website pages
is through these pages only after the projects are completed?
Would appreciate your help. Thank you.

Sincerely,

Mike Yesnes

looking for contacts in Jewish community in Chile and Argentina #general

Members,

I'm looking for contacts in the Jewish community in both Chile and Argentina who
might help me track down relatives who immigrated or passed through there during
or after the war. If the Forum can help out, I can obviously provide more
specific information.

Thanks!

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

The early 1900s saw many political and social movements sweep across the shtetls of
Europe, such as the Bund which was a secular Jewish organization that shared many
core beliefs of Marxist groups that sought the liberation of all workers. But while
the Marxist idea of a "workers' paradise" seemed to have a natural appeal in
countries where many were oppressed by low wages and intolerable working
conditions, few Jews were Communists and those that were, according to one
historian, "rarely cared about Jewish concerns and often virtually stopped being
Jewish." This account of "Jewish Communism in Vishnevets", >from the Yizkor book of
that Ukrainian town, tells of life after the Russians arrived in 1939 and two local
Jewish Communists rose to power during the time the Russians held sway. These two
"two started to 'purify' in the Stalinist style and to distribute power and its
benefits among their family members, relatives, and brothers in ideology, providing
them with a secure income on the backs of the people they evicted >from their jobs
." Historian Steven Zipperstein, reflecting on the impact the rise of Communism had
on Jews after the 1917 revolution, recalled a bitter "joke" >from the era: ""The
Trotskys made the revolution but the Bronshteins [Trotsky's original
Jewish name] will pay for it."

Re: Cold-Calling a Distant Relative Who Doesn't Know the Family Was Jewish #general

Angie Elfassi
 

Hi,

In reply to this story, and my story is not about people denying their Jewish
ancestry, but I have been told, and found, that it is better to first write a
letter before making a phone call. I phoned a 2nd cousin once removed, who had been
adopted at birth. I was very excited when I found her and I phoned her and she
denied that she was the adopted child of .... (intentionally left blank). But her
older brother (also adopted at birth) had given me sufficient information to know
that I'd found the correct person.

So, again, better to write or email first!

Regards

I tried calling a man who is my 3rd cousin twice removed. I know his father's
headstone has a cross on it, so I already knew the family had left Judaism...I
mentioned that the family came >from a small town in Ukraine. She sounded surprised,
but told me to go on. So I asked her what she knew about the family's religious
background. She asked "what do you mean". So I said that the family was originally
Jewish. Well, she immediately changed her tone, and said "I'm sorry, but the
details don't match my husband's family. I have to go. Bye".
Anyone else encounter this? Maybe I shouldn't have brought up religion, and
simply tried to get as much info as possible?
