Re: Free Birth certificate for Esther ABRAHAMS #unitedkingdom

Dear Miriam,

If you get no takers I could be wrong but I believe the JGSGB
maintains a folder of "orphan" certificates in their library so that
they get the widest possible use by anyone who might be related.

Hello SIGgers,

I've posted to ViewMate, #46442, a photo taken in London in 1942 of a
"Professor Harris" and his mother. They had recently escaped to
England, possibly >from Poland, via Spain, through the actions of a
team of British and Spanish operatives organized by the MI6 and the
British Red Cross. I am searching for anyone who recognizes these
people and can tell me their actual names and final destinies. The
doctor who housed them and created many exit documents >from Spain may
be a candidate for "Righteous Among Nations" status.

This annual class is for folks who want to create a town web site on

Three sisters from Essex #ukraine

Amanda Price <luv2dancenow@...>
 

This is my first message to the Ukraine SIG, so hope I am submitting it correctly.

My friend's grandmother, Ada, was brought to Essex >from Kiev by her father on the death of his wife to join her elder two sisters. The eldest sister was 20 years older than Ada and the second sister 13. We guesstimate that the years of birth were 1865, 1872 and 1885, although these may well be inaccurate. Ada married at a young age (18?) a Mr Smith and moved to central London. The girls' maiden name is unknown.

Any leads would be very gratefully received. Thank you.

Hello to all of you
I have a lot of experience in research in Poland, but this is the
first time I try to investigate in Germany.
I tried to learn >from the site of the SIG Germany, but was confused
with information. I have two specific questions:
Is there a large database records vitality Germany - parallel to JRI Poland?
Is there an organized list of all the towns in Germany and which
information >from which years available for each city - as in JRI
Poland?

I am currently interested in Posen, Hamburg, Baden, and Danzig, but
not necessarily.
Many thanks in advance

A simulation attempt at understanding the crossing in 1855 #poland

Tamar Amit <ta.genealogy@...>
 

Windstarke 8 [a umulet] (or Wind Force 8) TV Series is a multi-part
documentary/reality series >from Germany on ARD that attempts to show
conditions on emigrant ships headed to America in the 1800s.
It attempts to look back at the hardships that people endured -
seasickness, crowding and homesickness - all to reach their new home
in America.

Although over 5000 people tried out to be on the program, only 14
passengers, 5 children and 18 sailors were chosen to take part in this
experiment.
The ship As a film the Fridtjof Nansen was rebuilt and altered for the
shooting so that no modern equipment was visible. "Passengers"
and "crew" dressed, and behaved as they would have in 1855.

I believe it would give us all a better understanding of "the
crossing" even if we don't speak German.
