New data added to All-Lithuania Database - 4th quarter update #lithuania

Russ Maurer
 

The quarterly addition of new data to our All Lithuania Database (ALD) is
now searchable online at https://www.litvaksig.org/search-ald/
The following is a summary.

The grand total of new lines of data is 32,594.

Revision List Template (28,001 lines): Conscription lists for Vilnius city
and suburbs, as well as for Sejny Uyezd of Suwalki gubernia; family lists
for towns in the Zarasai district. A unique list in this upload is the 1942
census of the Siauliai ghetto, 4,733 lines.

Tax / Voters Template (3,320 lines): A variety of records for towns in the
Panevezys and Zarasai districts, including tax and elector lists, passport
issuance records, real estate owners, and a list of reserve soldiers.
Also, a list of craftsmen for the Zarasai district.

Internal Passports (1,273 lines): Foreign passport applications for Vilnius
City.

Please note that not all data in a particular template is actually data of
that specific type - e.g., in this upload, passport issuance records appear
in the tax & voter template; conscription lists appear in the revision list
template. Please look at all search results even if you don't think the
record type category is relevant to your search. You just never know what
you'll find.

Also, we note that all of these lists have been available to qualified donors
for at least the last 18 months. To become a qualified donor for a district or
project and gain first access to new translations, as well as spreadsheets
for past translations, please visit the LitvakSIG website,www.litvaksig.org.

Happy hunting!

What's the name of the town? #general

Dear Genners,

I'd appreciate an interpretation of the town name on line 15 of the manifest for
Sure Mendelstein who arrived in New York City on 28 January 1907. It appears to
be "Robma," but I can't find anything resembling that on JewishGen Town Finder or
Google. She was >from Starokonstantinov, Ukraine.

Thanks.

(Germany) Germany Has Agreed To One Time Payments for Survivors of Kindertransport #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany (Claims Conference)
said the German government had agreed to payments of 2,500 euros ($2,800) to
those still alive >from among the 10,000 people who fled on the so-called
"Kindertransport." This year is the 80th anniversary of the Kindertransport
bringing children to Britain >from Nazi Germany and elsewhere in Europe.

It is estimated that about 1,000 survivors are alive today. About half of
the survivors are alive in Britain with some resettled in the United States,
Israel, Canada, Australia and elsewhere. There were about 10,000 children
from Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia and Poland taken to Britain of which
7,500 were Jewish.

For almost all the cases, the parents who remained behind were murdered in
concentration camps. It was after Kristallnacht that the British
government agreed to allow an unspecified number of children as refugees
from Nazi Germany or its annexed territories. The first such transport
arrived in Harwich on December 2, 1938, with the last leaving Germany on
September 1, 1939 the day that World War ll broke out; and the final
transport >from continental Europe left the Netherlands on May 14, 1940, the
same day Dutch forces surrendered to the Nazis.

According to the Claims Conference, "the German payment is an acknowledgement
that this was a traumatic, horrible thing that happened to them."

Since 1952 the German government has paid more than $80 billion to individuals
for suffering and losses resulting of persecution by the Nazis.

(Canada) The Canadian Jewish Experience Book Correction #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

I recently noticed about a new book, The Canadian Jewish Experience: A
Celebration of Canada, based on a 2017 panel exhibition that traveled coast
to coast in Canada, and also shown at Canadian diplomatic venues in the
United States and Israel. The book is a record of the exhibition and the
associated activities. The book includes all 15 Canadian Jewish Experience
(CJE) panels, texts describing the contributions of Canadian Jews to the
development of the country. The CJE was inspired by a team of Jewish
Canadians.

I erred in saying it was published by the Library and Archives Canada, they
hosted the book launch. The book was created by Canadian Jewish Experience
and can be purchased at Indigo online
https://www.chapters.indigo.ca/en-ca/books/the-canadian-jewish-experience-lexperience/9781775300403-item.html
[MOD. NOTE: shortened URL - https://goo.gl/yZzNX3 ]

I have no affiliation with the Canadian Jewish Experience, nor Indigo

for the information of the reader, and to correct my error.

confirm this is British Army uniform? I've enlarged this >from a very small print
