Restoration of the synagogue in Bitca, Slovakia #austria-czech

lilotmoorman@...
 

A non-profit, government-protected fund has been established for the
restoration of the synagogue in Bitca, Slovakia (formerly Bisce,
Hungary). Several milestones have been reached, and the work is at the
point where contributions may be made for the replacement and repair of
the synagogue's windows. Individual windows may be adopted
and dedicated to the memory of a particular individual.
Almost all of Bitca's Jews were deported in 1942.

Those wishing to contribute to the effort can obtain detailed
information >from Katarina Urikova (urikovci1212@gmail.com).
Contributions can be directed to a window, or to the general restoration
fund, and both accounts are secure.

If photographs don't appear on the Brixton Cemetery web site, you can ask
them for photographs.
I have done in the past and they have been very helpful.

Thank you to Anne Lemkuhl for the FELDMAN details in her posting on Sunday.
Avram FELDMAN was the older brother of my grandfather Julius (Yudel)
FELDMAN.

Have the gravestones at Brixton cemetery been photographed? I am
particularly interested to know what appears on the gravestone of Zelman
FELDMAN 1906-1939. I suspect he is the son of Avram FELDMAN and would like
to confirm. Alternatively are there cemetery records and where are they
accessible?

Thanks,
Jules Feldman, Kibbutz Yizreel

*** There are photos of gravestones in the Brixton cemetery at

but it doesn't seem that this set includes all the graves. -- Moderator

Estate records / Death Index #southafrica

Elaine <erbush.read@...>
 

Ancestry.com has Death / Estate indexes as well as death indexes. I did
not see where to write to for further information. The person I am
interested in died in 1996. I have a feeling the records are not
available to the general public, even though the case numbers are
public. Does anyone one know anything different? Thank you.

Update: (US) National Archives Free Records and Genealogy Programs September 2016 #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Dear Jewish Genners:
On 13 September the public affairs department of the US National Archives
sent me a release on the September Free Records and Genealogy Programs.
That is what is summarized below. When I went to the site and searched for
the September 2016 link for the press release to include in the notice I
sent out, what came up was what I placed in the notice to the IAJGS
Leadership Forum, and did not notice that what came up in the search was
the 2015-last year's notice. As of today they still do not have any 2016
link. My apologies. In case you ae sharing the posting with others I have
removed the 2015 link >from the posting below. The information is correct in
the posting. If you require more information, please contact the National
Archives Public Affairs Staff at 202-357-5300.

Thank you to Adina Lipsitz, JGS Michigan for bringing the 2015 vs 2016 url
to our attention.

Dear Litvak researchers,
Following on >from Paul's message, this is just a reminder that we have =
many district research groups - there's a list here:

https://www.litvaksig.org/research/district-research/

The advantage of being a contributor to a group is that you get to see
the translated records as soon as they are finished and that they are on
downloadable Excel spreadsheets, so that you can search and sort them as
you like. These records are put onto the All Lithuania Database, which
is free to search, after 18 months.

The ALD database
https://www.litvaksig.org/all-lithuania-database/search-ald
has quite a lot of information (FYI, most of my family-the next 2 or 3
generations are >from Saulaia - a lot more records are available - as
Shavel was/is the 3rd. largest town in Lithuania).

FYI, I've been in touch with Milda Jakulyte-Vasil - who is the curator
of the Seduva Memorial Museum in Vilnius, who provided me with a
contact-researcher in Lithuanian State History Archive -
- as well as a contact (Jurate Zulpaite) at the Jewish Museum-Memorial
in Seduva.

Please write me privately for the contact information.

FYI, some relatives of mine in south Africa have managed to arrange
Lithuanian Passports etc., it is/can be a rather costly process, but
certainly doable.

Q 13. Why are there no Jewish vital records in certain towns prior to the
1860s?
A. There are at least three possible reasons for the lack of records:
1. The records were kept in another town.
2. There were no Jews living in that town at that time.
3. The records were destroyed or lost.
