Thanks, Randy. For those who don't want to wait until the 25th, note
that most of the same data >from holocaust.cz's database of victims can
also be found at

http://archive.pamatnik-terezin.cz/en/history-collection-research/jmenne-vyhledavace-byvalych-veznu-en?lang=en

It is mainly, or perhaps totally, under the 3rd collection listed on
that page:
"Victims of the Terezin Ghetto and Victims of the Transports >from the
Czech Lands to the Ghettos in Lodz, Minsk and to the Labour Camp Ujazdow"

which redirects to:
http://archive.pamatnik-terezin.cz/vyhledavani/Aghetto/index.php

There are differences between the search rules on the two sites, notably
holocaust.cz returns all matches beginning with the search key (e.g. a
search for "Kohn" also returns "Kohnova" and "Kohner"), while at
pamatnik-terezin.cz you need to search for "Kohn*" to get the same results.

A huge advantage of pamatnik-terezin.cz is that it gives info about
survivors as well as victims. A huge disadvantage is that it does not
give you the document images that are included with many records on
holocaust.cz. Both sites are very useful (when available).

The same data is also searchable at yadvashem.org. The
advantage/disadvantage there is that it is mixed with data >from many
other sources, mainly >from other countries.

It is great that we have such a wealth of resources available online!

Leo Baeck Institute NYC fall program includes "The World of Aufbau" on September 10th. #germany

John Paul Lowens <jplowens@...>
 

I received an Email notice with details of the LBI fall program today.
For more about "The World of Aufbau" see the footnote below and also:
https://tinyurl.com/y3ktv7ya

"Aufbau"a German-language weekly published in New York and circulated
worldwide was an essential platform for the generation of refugees
from Hitler and the displaced people and concentration camp survivors
who arrived in the United States after the war. The publication served
to link thousands of readers looking for friends and loved ones in
every part of the world. In its pages Aufbau focused on concerns that
strongly impacted this community in the aftermath of World War II."

GerSIG volunteers have extracted birth, marriage, death and other data
from personal ads in the Aufbau. These data are searchable via
a link at the GerSIG website:

http://www.calzareth.com/aufbau/search.html

There is also a data file at JewishGen created by Peter Lande:
"More than 33,000 Holocaust survivors, published in the German-language
newspaper Aufbau, New York, 1944-1946." "Aufbau Survivors Lists" at:

https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Holocaust/aufbau.htm

Another event in the fall schedule is "Jews on the Upper East Side"

Searching for Family in France #france

Rachel Steckler
 

Dear All,

I am extremely grateful to Mr. Pierre Hahn who assisted with locating the
death record of a relative of my mother's who left Lublin,Poland for Paris
with her parents who were tailors, in the year 1928. Her name was Fradla
Rebeka WEKSTEIN and I have a photo of her. She was born September 3,1919 in
Lublin, Poland and died November 3,2014 in Saint Gratien. According to her
death record, her widower is/was Raymond Maurice GETNER. If anyone can
suggest the process for trying to find out if they have any children or if
her husband is still alive, please send information on how to do so. We know
very little about our long-lost family member.

Thank you kindly for any and all assistance,
Rachel Steckler

Wow. Overwhelming response. Alfred Holzman found it by accessing the
Municipal Archives through the Steve Morse site. I know, it wasn't
supposed to be there, but Alfred took a look. Good sleuthing! Eternal gratitude.

Several people asked if I would provide the information furnished by
other researchers on this question. Here's a list of the sources they
suggested. Apologies if there are some dups in here:

This is a long shot, but have you contacted the Museum of the City of
New York, New York Historical Society, and New York Pubic Library
about what they have in their photo repositories? You might also

Re: Retain documents, not just web links to the documents #general

Hilary Henkin
 

While your advice to always save the original document is very sound,
the document might still be on the website, but on a different page or
with a different name, so the link (the path to the document) isn't
accurate now. You might try truncating the URL a piece at a time (some
shortened versions won't work because of directory limitations), and see
where that takes you.

If the site offers a site search,that might also be helpful

At one time there was a website dedicated to the Jewish Cemetery in Harbin, China,
with lists of all those buried there. I printed out every page, and one day, the
site was gone. But I still have my printed pages....

Don't give up quite yet....
