Further information on the "March of Time" #general

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

Regarding my previous posting, a correction: the certificates are shown when
the film's narrator is talking about attacks (pogroms) against the Jews,
i.e. they're not talking about taxes.

You can see a listing of the various segments "March of Time" newsreels
(with a synopsis of each) at
http://www.hboarchives.com/marchoftime/MOT-Newsreels-Synopsis.pdf

You can actually watch full-length episodes at

"March of Time" episode that displays certificates with Jewish names #general

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

I am watching one of the "March of Time" thirty-minute films (Volume 3,
Number 11), this one >from 1937, and one part of it is entitled "Poland and
War."

In one scene (at about the six-minute mark) they are talking about the
increasing taxes on the Jews and they show a number of certificates that I
believe are hanging on walls, and there are names on these certificates. I
can't say >from what city/town these certificates hung--perhaps Danzig, or
Warsaw, Galicia, Lithuania, or a town in the Bialystok region, I can't tell
from the newsreel footage--but I would be remiss if I didn't pass these
names on to you. I can't really read what else is printed on these
certificates, but can tell you the names as they are the largest printing on
said certificates.

So then here are the names:
Estera Adlermanowna
Mendla Apfel
Abraham Schwannanfeld
Abraham Selig Rappaport
Wolf Mamber (the second 'm' and 'b' are a bit suspect)
Sarah z Tuchmanow Krebsowa
Leib Schwarz
Gedale Loffler

I'll keep my eyes open for more names, etc. One never knows where one may
find a name of interest.

Regards,
Steven Lasky

Pictures of graves of Estonian Jews at various world cemeteries #general

I am in the middle of the project of collecting the pictures of the graves
of Estonian Jews. See http://eja.pri.ee/Gallery2 As there were not too
many Jews in Estonia, it seems to be possible. If you would like to
contribute a picture, you can submit it directly at the site or you can send
the picture(s) to me.
Thanks,
Mark Rybak

MODERATOR NOTE: JewishGen's JOWBR (JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial
Registry) Database provides a centralized database of more than 1.5 million

Re: Yad Vashem and Google Partnership for Accessing Photo collection #general

Friends,

This site is fantastic but its search engine is quite weak. I recommend that
you use the regular Google search engine, with the following keywords/text
string:

["term_you_are_searching"] site:collections.yadvashem.org/photosarchive

For example: "Warsaw ghetto" site:collections.yadvashem.org/photosarchive
will give you 164 returns whereas if you search the site directly you will
get only 40 (the limit Yad Vashem imposed on their search engine).

Yad Vashem and Google have announced a partnership where Yad Vashem's photo
collection --130,000 photos-- will be made accessible and viewable in full
resolution on-line. This is the first step of bringing Yad Vashem's archive
online...

LEAF nee LIEBERMAN nee LIFSCHITZ from Swislowitz Volkovysk Grodno #general

Rachelle Berliner <rlberliner@...>
 

I would also appreciate hearing >from UK genners aware of surnames LYONS and
LEAF.

My search may seem complicated due to different spellings of the shtetl and
the fact there are two Svisloch locations. I am attempting to explain the
one I'm searching and why.

Swislowitz is as my dad wrote it as where he was from. Svislach, Swislocz,
Svislocius, Svislac, Sislevitch, Sislevits, Svislovitch, Svislovitz,
Svislotch, Svislots are the same town with different pronunciations.

http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Svisloch
Swislocz is Wolkowysk Bialystok Poland where Svisloch is Volkovysk Grodno
Russian Empire. The latter is where my dad was born.

It is a definite that the original family surname was LIFSCHITZ (also many
spellings) and in Swislocz it was LIEBERMAN. My g-uncle was Joseph Osher
LIFSCHITZ. He married Basha Jazelov. Their daughter, Sarah, immigrated to
the U.S. and changed the name to LEAF as did the other children who
immigrated. My dad, Sam I. LEAF came over as Schaie LIEBERMAN and then
assumed LEAF as Sarah sponsored his arrival into the U.S. My Uncle Max also
took LEAF. Uncle Morris retained the surname LIEBERMAN.

I have recently been made aware of LIFSCHITZ in the U.K. who changed their
name to LYONS. There also may be LEAF families in the U.K. who were
originally LIFSCHITZ >from Svisloch, Volkovysk, Grodno, Russian empire.

My grandparents were Alte Neome AIN and Samson/Shimshon LIEBERMAN. I have
been searching for an English translation of a Svisloch Yizkor book to find
out what happened to them and my two aunts, given names unknown. A Yizkor
book >from Volkovysk may also provide information about them. In addition,
perhaps a voter’s list would help. Uncle Morris was the last to leave for
the U.S. in 1916. All were alive then. Cousin Abraham AIN corresponded with
them until there was no more mail arriving >from them.

Please reply privately with information about the Yizkor books and how I can
view them, as well as other information and suggestions pertinent to my
search.

Thank you very much.

LitvakSIG Records Acquisition Report #general

Howard Margol
 

Following is a list of records that were translated by LitvakSIG during
October, November, and December, 2010.

They will be added to the LitvakSIG's "All Lithuania Database" - the ALD
- 18 months after they were received. In the meantime, they are available
in the various LitvakSIG District Research Group (DRG) web sites.

If you are interested in a particular list, but are not a member of that DRG,
go to < www.litvaksig.org > and click on District Research.

Thanks should go to Dorothy Leivers, who coordinates the district
coordinators, as well as to the DC's themselves. Aaron Roetenberg
coordinates the vital records for the Kaunas Gubernia towns, and Dorothy
coordinates the vital records for Suwalki gubernia towns in present day
Lithuania. Joel Ratner coordinates the Vilnius District for all types of
records. His report will follow at a later date.

A great big thanks should also go to all those who have supported LitvakSIG
as well as Jewishgen. Without that support, very few records could be translated.

Records in Latvia or Lithuania #lithuania

rena rudolph mcdonald
 

My great-grandmother >from Ushpol, Lithuania stated her husband was born
in Dvinsk, Latvia around 1880. They were married in Dvinsk, and their
children were born in Dvinsk 1900, 1908 and 1912.

Question 1, where would their records be located? Her husband died
sometime after 1912. Her last place of residence before emigrating to
the US in 1922 was Rokiskis,Lithuania.

Question 2, This was before WW1, what wars were going on around that
time? Are there military records available?

I am researching: STEIMAN, STEINMAN, >from Lithuania; SKLADEROVICH
(SKLEIDEROVICH) >from Ushpol (Uzpaliail) and Wilkimer (Ukmerge) and
NADEL >from Zloczow (Zolochev) Poland now Ukraine.

Thank you,

"March of Time" episode that displays certificates with Jewish names #lithuania

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

I am watching one of the "March of Time" thirty-minute films (Volume 3,
Number 11), this one >from 1937, and one part of it is entitled "Poland and
War."

In one scene (at about the six-minute mark) they are talking about
attacks (pogroms) against the Jews and they show a number of certificates
that I believe are hanging on walls, and there are names on these
certificates.

I can't say >from what city/town these certificates hung--perhaps Danzig,
or Warsaw, Galicia, Lithuania, or a town in the Bialystok region, I can't
tell >from the newsreel footage--but I would be remiss if I didn't pass
these names on to you. I can't really read what else is printed on these
certificates, but can tell you the names as they are the largest printing
on said certificates.

So then here are the names:

Estera Adlermanowna
Mendla Apfel
Abraham Schwannanfeld
Abraham Selig Rappaport
Wolf Mamber (the second 'm' and 'b' are a bit suspect)
Sarah z Tuchmanow Krebsowa
Leib Schwarz
Gedale Loffler

I'll keep my eyes open for more names, etc. One never knows where one may
find a name of interest.

You can see a listing of the various segments "March of Time" newsreels
(with a synopsis of each) at
