Upcoming publication regarding 400 letters from Germany 1937-1941 [The letters are at LBI] #germany

Tom Krakauer
 

My parents left Hannover, Germany in 1937. My mother saved about 400 letters
that circulated between my grandparents and my mother's 5 siblings
that told the story of what the family went through as the noose was
tightening.

The events include Krystallnacht and the farewell letters to members of
the extended family who would not survive. My grandmother indicated that
the "Waiting was the hardest thing".

The letters have all been donated to the Leo Baeck Institute. Of greater
value may be the book that Dr Edel Sheridan-Quantz is writing about these
letters. The book will be published next March in English and German
by the Erinnerungs Archiv in Hannover

I will let you know when the book is published and how you might obtain
a copy if you are interested.

JGSGW December 3, 2017 Meeting Announcement - Researching in the USHMM Collection #general

N. Kotz
 

The Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington's December 2017
meeting at B'nai Israel
Congregation, 6301 Montrose Rd, Rockville, MD 20852

Event: Researching in the USHMM Collection
Speaker: Steven Vitto
Date: December 3, 2017
Time: 1:00 PM

Researching in the USHMM Collection with Mr. Steven Vitto, U.S. Holocaust
Museum

Mr. Vitto will present an overview of the development of the Holocaust
Survivors and Victims Resource Center at the USHMM. Emphasis will be
on the names database and the International Tracing Service
collection. Mr. Vitto will share examples of stories he's been
involved with - a reunion, helping a survivor and his family find
critical information 70 years after they were told there is no
documentation and others. Throughout, he will focus on how staff in
the Resource Center and Library/Archives collections can be of use to
genealogists. He will discuss what resources can be accessed from
your home computer, and which require a visit to the USHMM. He will
also discuss the World Memory Project, where anyone, anywhere can help
make names and documents available to researchers.

Steven Vitto is a Researcher and Senior Information Retrieval
Specialist in the Holocaust Survivors and Victims Resource Center
(formerly known as the Survivors Registry). He was the first
Reference Librarian in the then newly established Museum Library and
is now a researcher working primarily in the Public Reference desk. He
has worked with thousands of survivors and their families providing
information and documentation on the individual experiences of
survivors and victims during the Holocaust. He was among the first to
be allowed direct access to the then newly accessible records of the
International Tracing Service in Bad Arolson, Germany and works
regularly in this collection and others.

JGSGW Guest Attendance Policy
A non-member may attend the monthly JGSGW meeting as a Guest for a
$5.00 fee payable at the sign-in table. The $5.00 Guest fee may be
applied toward payment of annual JGSGW membership dues if dues are

Jacob HIRSZOWSKI or Yankel GIRSHOVSKY? #general

Jacques <jhirszowski@...>
 

Hello,
My grand-father Jacob (Yankel) Hirszowski, >from Eisiskes was born c. 1870.
my grand-mother Chava Makov (1878-1935) is the daughter of Moshe Iser
Makov and Toive Leah Makov, and was born in Knyszyn.
I believe that my grand-father is in fact Yankel Girshovsky, as listed in
family unit 290 in the 1904 Revision List, found in the Jewish Lituania
Database, as almost everything in that record matches almost perfectly the
information I have about my family, but don't have a 100% proof of my
assumption.
In this record, Chava's father is named as Girsh (?), while his father was
Moshe Iser Makov.

I'd like to get vital records to confirm my assumption : marriage of my
grand-parents and(or) birth records of their children, 4 of them probably
born in Eisiskes between 1900-1904, 3 of them born between 1906-1912
possibly in Knyszyn, and of course my dad who was born in 1919 in Bialystok.

There's a Yankel Girshovsky who was recorded in the Bialytok the 1912
Electoral List who might be my grand-father, as well as a Moshva Iser Makov
who is probably my great grand-father.

I would very much appreciate at this point some advice as where I should go
from here in my search for my grand-father and his family.
Best regards.
Jacques Hirszowski
