Viewmate photo identification request-Women behind gate or bars #general

Marilyn Levinson
 

I have posted a photograph of two women standing behind a locked gate or
prison bars. I need help in identifying the subject of the photo. I think it
may be a political postcard dealing with working women, but perhaps it is
a personal photograph.

I would appreciate any help in identifying the purpose of the photo. The
photo is posted at
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM 27024

In the lower right hand corner there is the mark of the International
Printer and Engravers Union.
Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.
I deeply appreciate your help.

Need a new search direction: FISHMAN Family of Bobruisk #belarus

Charlie
 

My (FISHMAN) Family has a known history of 3 generations in Bobruisk,
Belarus >from approximately 1850 to 1920. In that time period my great
grandfather Isaiah FISHMAN, married Sarah (maiden name unknown) and
had 5 children in Bobruisk.

The oldest son Benjamin married Etta (maiden name unknown) in Lush
(Etta's birth city) (a definite mistake, taken >from a USA Declaration
of Intention) in 1904. They had 6 children >from 1905 to 1918 in Bobruisk.
Etta died in Bobruisk (1918-1920).

All of Benjamin's siblings left Bobruisk between 1907 and 1918 - 3 to the
USA and 1 to Warsaw, Poland. We assume that Isaiah and Sarah died in
Bobruisk (dates unknown).

Benjamin and his 6 children left Bobruisk walking to Warsaw in 1920 or
1922 and came to the USA in 1923. We have the passenger manifests. We
have their European names >from the manifests

The Problem: I can find no reference to my family in JewishGen,
Ancestry.com. LDS family search or any other website. Yes, we have
found records of their lives in the USA, but nothing relating to
their time in Bobruisk. Family lore says that Benjamin owned a farm
and Etta was a schoolteacher.

I have an application for a passport that was granted to my grandfather
Benjamin, but none of the children are listed and under military service
it says "served" It was signed by the chief of the Bobruisk Militia,
but the date was blurred. That is where we got Isaiah and Sarah's
name.

I am trying to find:
Isaiah's parents and siblings, Sarah's maiden name and birth place
Etta's maiden name and birthplace

**I am not sure on how to proceed.**
**I need some ideas >from more experienced genealogists than I am.**
Thank You,

Re: Mogilev Birth Index for Boys, 1864-1894 #belarus

Dear Arthur,

Unless those records were translated in the Belarus CD translations, on the
static pages of Belarus SIG, you will need to order the Mogilev Crown Rabbinate
records (seven rolls of microfilm) >from the Family History Center in
Salt Lake City. However, you might be in a location that has them permanently
(like Las Vegas NV for which I was responsible in getting a permanent set
there as I worked through the entire series).

Your researcher needs to know both Cyrillic (old) and Yiddish/Hebrew, as the
entries are in both languages. Many of the entries are scribbles, while some
are beautiful in calligraphy. One needs both languages as details are often
different in both.

That index was compiled >from the records itself by the officials in Mogilev
at the time the records were prepared, and only lists the father's name, not
the child's name. The actual records are very good, if you can read them
(both languages!).

Good luck!

Seeking: Belarus grandparents, GOLDSHTEIN from Minsk #belarus

neil chestock <neilchestock@...>
 

Can anyone recommend a inexpensive genealogist in the Minsk area of Belarus?
I am searching for info regarding my Grandparents Nochum and Sora Rochel
GOLDSHTEIN b. 1860 and 1867 resp. Also my gt. Grandparents Mordechai and
Esther GOLDSHTEIN, b 1830 and 1837 resp. all >from Minsk.
Nochum and Soro Rochel emigrated to Manchester UK in 1893 with their 4
children.

I believe Mordechai had a sister called Chia Sorah who married Myer Chain
Kolodny in 1892 in Pinsk. They were both killed 1n 1943 by the
Mamzerim - may they rot in hell! Their daughter Esther, b1870 and her
husband Moshe, b 1868 in Pinsk also died in 1943. However, their children
born in Pinsk emegrated the the US (New Jersey) in about 1915.

Re: UK Alien Registration Cards #unitedkingdom

martyn@...
 

Dear Naidia,

I cannot see why your blood should run cold. Britain was at war with Germany
and Austria and had little means of differentiating between genuine refugees
and potential enemies. Many aliens (I believe only adult men), were interned
on the Isle of Man until the Authorities were satisfied that they were not a
threat to Britain or its war effort.

from a view-point 70 years later there are many things which now seem
strange but certainly were not so at the time. An example is the bombing of
Dresden which is now viewed as a quasi war crime. I remember the joy in
London, where I was throughout the war, when we heard that a German town had
been devastated. Later enquiries do not alter the lift it gave to morale in
Britain.

As to the question of a woman losing her nationality if she married a
foreigner, that was the law both here in Britain and in many other
countries. It wasn't shameful except in retrospect; women also did not have
a vote, full voting rights for women did not come until 1928. In France it
was as late as 1944. Remember also that women's property belonged entirely
to their husbands until 1882, which was not so long before WW1.

It is an interesting speculation to consider what people might think of some
of the current legislation in all our countries when they consider the
matter in the year 2083. I doubt that I shall be around to know.

I am the person who (a couple of days ago) posted a message to JRI-Poland
which referenced the mandatory registration of resident aliens in Britain by
the government during World War I). One thing I didn't mention, this time
around, was that my paternal grandmother, born in England but married to a
Polish Jew, had her British Nationality revoked because she was married to
an alien! (Shameful, don't you agree?) While at the Police Museum in
Birmingham where the WWI Alien Registers are housed I copied the page
showing the entries in the Alien Register for her and her husband: Annie and
Simon Woolf (nee Kujawski) which contains the note about the revocation of
her British nationality.

During the 2nd World War (when, again, resident aliens had to register with
the authorities) even Jewish refugees >from Germany and Austria seeking
refuge in Britain and a safe haven >from the Nazis. Makes your blood run
cold.

I've been told that the building in London where the alien registration
records were archived burned down (most likely during the Blitz). I'm not
sure whether the records >from the two world wars were both kept in that same
building (and therefore destroyed). It's well worth further investigation.

My husband's grandparents took the overland route via Russia,China and

Their journey was documented in vivid first-hand detail through a series
of articles written by my husband's grandfather (a cousin of Albert Einstein).

These articles were published in the San Francisco Chronicle at the
time. I have copies of all the articles as well as the originals
and would be happy to share them.

BOOK CITE: Re: Escaping via Japan - [Topic now closed] #germany

Micheline GUTMANN
 

There is an extraordinary book called " In the Garden of Memory " written by
a Polish well known artist and author
Joanna OLCZAK-RONIKIER. It is a family saga. The story of the family of
Andre CITROEN's mother.
Among the incredible but true adventures of the members of the family, there
are those who fled Poland through Wilna
And tried to go to USA. They were stopped by the Germans. They could know
that the Consul of Japan offered 6,000 visas for Japan.
(Sugihara received the Medal of the Righteous in 1985).
They joined Moscow then Vladivostok and after a while found a boat to Japon
(with a child ill).
from there a new difficulty was to find place on a boat to San Francisco.
They arrived in 1941. The complete journey lasted two years.
