Mis felicitaciones a la organizacion JewishGen por haber
merecidamente ganado el premio otorgado por AOL, que
selecciona entre cientos de lugares (sites) dedicados a
genealogia.

Tanto Susan King como todo el resto de voluntarios que hacen
posible este regalo para nosotros, merecen nuestra eterna
gratitud y respeto. No solo es la calidad profesional de la
tarea sino tambien el hecho de que toda la informacion que JG
recibe es completamente abierta a todos sus miembros y accesible
al mundo. JG cumple su objetivo de proveer un lugar abierto,
organizado y profesional, donde investigadores de todo el mundo
pueden conducir sus investigaciones en su propio tiempo. JG es
realmente un ejemplo de profesionalismo y Democracia en accion.

Por mi parte debo decirles que me hace sentir muy orgullosa de ser
miembro de JewishGen. Felicitaciones por un trabajo bien hecho!!!!

My sincere congratulations to the JewishGen organization for
having, so deservedly, received the award granted by AOL. JG
was chosen among hundreds of Genealogical sites.

Susan King as well as the rest of the volunteer team that make
this "present" for us, deserve our eternal gratitude and respect.
Not only is it dueto the professional quality of the job but also
the fact that all the information that JG receives is then
completely open to all its users and made accessible to the
rest of the world. JG achieves its objective by providing an open
site, organized and professional, where researchers >from around
the world may conduct their research on their own time.
JG is truly an example of professionalism and Democracy in action.
As for me, I must say that it makes me feel very proud to be a
subscriber to JewishGen. Congratulations on a job well done!!!

search a grave ... #latinamerica

Yoav Epelman,TLV R&D <yoave@...>
 

Hi
I have a hard task.
I search the death certificate of my wife's great grandfather,
Behor Yossef Gabay (first son Yosef), who was murdered in
Argentina in 1918.

His son, my wife's grandfather, was 1 year old only when his
father was murdered and he was only son. The family doesn't
know anything about the great grandfather. They know only his
name (Behor Yosef) and that he was murdered on 1918. He is
buried in Buenos Aires. That's all.

If someone knows the address of an old Jewish cemeteries in
Buenos Aires please response. We even don't know where exactly
he is buried.

Thanks anyway.

Slovakian records #hungary

CheriUnger@...
 

Hi All,

I sent a request form to the State Archives in Bratislava - I was hunting for
my great grandfather's birth records.
I received a re;y yesterday stating that birth records for he Jewish Parish
of Medzilaborce were kept for the years between 1851-1895 only.
Where would one look for records before 1851 and after 1895? I am resending
a request to the Presov district Archives to see what can be found in that
location.

This is my first venture into the realms of East European genealogy
sites-does anyone have any useful suggestions?

Re: Berlin Jewish Newspaper #general

Ron Brinitzer <06robr@...>
 

I guess there were several Jewish Newspapers at that time published in
Berlin. Here the titles I was able to find:

- Juedische Rundschau (Berlin), allgemeine juedische Zeitung,
Berlin, 1902 -1938, 7.1902,40 - 43.1938,89
- Allgemeine Zeitung des Judenthums, ein unpartheiisches Organ
fuer alles juedische Interesse in Betreff von Politik, Religion,
Literatur, Geschichte, Sprachkunde und Belletristik, Berlin, Engel,
1837-1922, 1.1837 - 86.1922,9
- Juedisch-liberale Zeitung, Berlin, Vereinigung f|r das Liberale
Judentum, 1.1921 - 14.1934,88

As far as I can see >from the titles they were not printed especially for
the Berlin community but as most of the German Jews lived in Berlin many
of the contents should deal with Berlin matters. The following one seems
to deal only with Berlin matters:

- Israelitisches Familienblatt fuer Gross-Berlin, Berlin,
1898-1935, 1.1898 - 37.1935,17(23.April)

I hope I was able to help you with this short survey which is probably
very incomplete.
