Viewmate 72630 - Photo Identification assistance #general

Joyce Eastman
 

I have posted a photo on ViewMate at the following address:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM72630 in an effort
to obtain information about the family of Sali Scheier, the younger sister
of my maternal grandmother. Her parents were Toni/Fani Rufeisen and Aron
Scheier. I believe that Sali was born in Sucha, Poland about 1885 or so.
In this family photo taken in Ostrava in 1939, are Sali Scheier (maiden
name), with her husband Jakob and son. I am trying to find the married
surname of Sali, as well as that of her son.

In addition, I know that Sali was living in Bermuda in the 1950's since my
grandmother, Sidonie Fodor (Scheier) used to visit her there.

Please respond via the form provided on the ViewMate image page.

Ponsowy Family from Kaluszyn #poland

ingrid rockberger
 

Dear All

I have recently found more information about my paternal grandmother =E2=80=
=93 about whom the family knew very little. So this is an attempt to maybe =
find some descendants of her siblings. My grandparents were already in Engl=
and in the early 1900s. Whereas most of my gfather'ss family also came
to England, my grandmother had no relatives in England.

Her name was Chaya Tzivia Ponsowa >from Kaluszyn, born in 1881. Her family
is also listed under Ponsowy >from Kaluszyn. Her parents were Perec Ponsowy
and Rifka Fyzsman.

Family lore has it that she had 4 brothers who "maybe" went
to the States.

I have obtained some of the vital records and am in the process of
obtaining others. So far, I have evidence of one brother Judka, born 1868.

So, if anyone whose ancestors are >from Kaluszyn think they have any
connection to this family, I would love to hear >from you.

Kitchner Camp Website for Descendants of WWll Kitchner Camp Refugees #austria-czech

Jan Meisels Allen
 

European Jews scattered across Europe and elsewhere with the rise of Nazis
in Germany. One place the Jewish refugees fled was to the Kitchner Camp in
England, near Sandwich, created in early 1939. The camp housed 4,000 German,
Austrian and Czech male refugees between February 1939 and when it closed in
May 1940. Inmates were only accepted if they could prove they were in
transit elsewhere. There are no records who left England or where they went.
Many went to North and South America.

A website has been created to provide information about the men who passed
through the Kitchner Camp. Information includes a list of names,
photographs. Documents, letters and more. The website may be access at:
http://www.kitchenercamp.co.uk/ and will be run by the Weiner Library in
London.

If you know someone who passed through the Camp they would like to hear from
you. Please share any documents you may have at:

Moravian and silesian Jewish cemetries #austria-czech

danielat1@...
 

I am passing on this report below >from the genealogy expert Jaroslav
Klenovsky at his request. Jaroslav has worked for many years for the Jewish
Community in Brno and we have worked together on my family history in
Moravia and Silesia.
The report below concerns further work he is undertaking which may be of
interest to others in the SIG..

Documentation of the cemeteries of Moravia and Silesia

The material monuments of the Jewish cultural heritage is subject to a time
of slow destruction, most notably on gravestones. Therefore, after the
construction and restoration repair phase, after a decade of neglected real
estate, documentation, photographic and film documentation has been carried
out. It has become a matter for various institutions, mainly Jewish
communities, but also for active individuals. This is the only way for
future generations to preserve the culturally-historical information
"hidden" in gravestone texts, important for historians, conservationists and
genealogists. Today, all the Jewish cemeteries in the territory of Moravia
and Silesia have already prepared a plan for the placement of the
gravestones (and these are nearly 50 thousand).

The next step is transcription of texts on gravestones, preferably including
quality digital photography. This requires some skill, knowledge of Hebrew,
and technical means. Such dossiers are already available for several dozen,
but are mostly difficult to access or inaccessible. The Jewish community of
Brno took part in the coordination and accessibility of the documentation of
all preserved cemeteries in Moravia in Silesia on their website
https://cemeteries.zob.cz/ . Out of the total of 80 burial sites there are
already 47 sites documented, the other eight are accessible directly
elsewhere, the documentation of the two cemeteries is processed but not made
available to the owner, in six cases it is only the rest of the destroyed
cemetery with a minimum of 1-3 gravestones. There are 17 cemeteries, for
which the necessary documentation should be prepared in the near future.
Website improvement and completion is still ongoing, and its authors
Jaroslav Klenovsky (expert content) and Jaromir Hejl (computer support) will
be grateful for any repairs and add-ons.
