Telephone Call Needed in Israel #general

cromrider@juno.com <cromrider@...>
 

I have found possible relatives in Israel for someone currently living in
the Ukraine who would like to contact them. The families in Israel have
lived there less than 10 years, so ideally I would like someone who speaks
Russian (as well as Hebrew).

If you are able to help me connect these two families please e-mail me at
cromrider@aol.com. Do not hit the "Reply" button as I do not check my
mail on Juno.

Shana Tova to all,

Help with old German handwriting, please #germany

hannakg@...
 

I have a package of papers relating to the death and will of great
uncle. The will was drawn in the 1880's in Berlin. The man died in the
1910's, also in Berlin. Most of it is in handwriting, some Suetterlin,
some just bad. There are marginal notes made by lawyers, etc. The
whole adds up to 10-15 pages and I would love to have it copied and/or
translatedor at least abstracted. I believe it is too much to scan into
Viewmate, as I have had gread difficulty using that for even one quarter
page. Would anyone who can easily read German handwriting be willing to
look at this? I would be glad to send a xerox copy and to pay for any
costs, and grateful for the effort.

Monitor Polski - My own Columbus Day! #poland

Lancy
 

Dear Fellow Researchers!

I am so carried away that I find it difficult to talk (or write
for that matter). I feel like Christopher must have felt when he
discovered America.

My father in law left Poland in the 1920's, leaving behind a
mother and several brothers. He passed away 25 years ago, taking
with him the names of his brothers. No one in the family knows
their names. In years of genealogica research I have come up with
absolutely nothing.

Today, I looked up the SPALTER name once again and I found what
seems to be a tracing request for one of his brothers - dates,
names of parents and location - they all match! Now I know that
one of his brothers was named Aron.

My questions:

1) How can I find a reprint of this publication?

2) How can I retrieve the tracing request that yielded the
publication? There may be a survivor in the family and we do not
know about him!

I can't stress enough the importance of this new resource. All
vital records for the area in which they lived were destroyed.
Hopefully, judicial records survived.

MODERATOR'S NOTE: Mazel Tov on your discovery! JRI-Poland is currently working on a finding aid that will list which archive to contact to obtain copies of documents >from particular courts. We are mindful of the importance of these records and hope to have the finding aid available before long.

Panevezys Ghetto List-1941-Partial #lithuania

Howard Margol <homargol@...>
 

This past June, I was in Lithuania with 18 others in
my group. It was the 10th group I have organized to
Lithuania. In Panevezys, I met with Genady Kofman, the
Chairman of the Panevezys Jewish Community. Among other
items, Genady gave me a one-page list of Jews who were
in the Panevezys ghetto in 1941. As you can see this
list includes #434 through #497. All of these Jews were
from Kupiskis but it may not be all inclusive. Other
pages contain names of Jews >from Panevezys and shtetlach
in the Panevezys area.

In the Panevezys Museum, in a small display of Jewish
items, was another page of the list. This list started
with #1 and contained about 65-70 names. I was not able
to obtain a copy of that page at the time. Genady told
me additional lists exist and he agreed to find them
and send me copies including the list on display at the
Museum.

I do not know the total number of names included. Also,
I do not know the origin of the lists but they appear to
be authentic. If and when I receive additional lists of
names, I will post them on the Litvak SIG Digest.

If you feel a need to contact me, please use homargol@aol.com
If you write to my bellsouth account, I will not respond.
