NYC Archives-Fee increase #general

Barbara Mannlein <bsmannlein@...>
 

Be warned that on November 12th the NYC Archives increased their fee
schedule for copies of marriage certificates by 66 2/3 percent!

And to rub salt into the wound, some clerks are returning requests sent in
before that date!

On Nov 8, I mailed 11 requests for copies of marriage certificates to the
Archives. I sent the requisite $6.00 for each. I was sent only 6
certificates. The other requests were *returned* to me requesting payment of
$10.00 each. My $6.00 payments should have been honored as they were
submitted before the fees were raised 66 2/3 percent

I just want to let everyone know what an amazing resource this discussion
list is! A few days ago, I submitted a message looking for a person in Italy
(who was born in Riga) who I recently discovered was related to my Riga
Mozeson ancestors. Another person living in Riga read my message on this
list, happened to know this relative and passed the message on to her. In
less than 24 hours >from my original posting, I recieved an email directly
from my Italian relative. Amazing!

We too have a story about my father's brother disappearing.
My parents were in the States at the time and sent packages. The story went
that he went to sell something on the black market and never came back.

Shoah survivors names included in The Central Database of Shoah Victims' Names #general

Uri Jakubovic
 

Dear Genners,

Did you know that the database of Yad Vashem contains survivors names too?
For instance I found my father's name as a survivor of Terezin (= Theresienstadt)!
I payed attention that a lot of names, maybe most or even all of them whose source
is "Terezinska Pametni Kniha"/ Theresienstaedter Gedenkbuch, Terezinska Inciativa,
vol. I-II Melantrich, Praha are of survivors!!! It's also written there that these
people are survivors!!!

Another issue: I found the name of my mother-in-law (she was in Stutthof and
considered as a Holocaust victim according to "Nevek" - a Project on Hungarian
Jews ).

Anyway, I wrote Yad Vashem about this issue and suggested they don't delete these
cases, but create another database!

Hello, Dear Colleagues!

I've tried to contact Julia Roth whose e-mail I'd found in the JGFF as
researching LOEB >from Cluj, Romania.
The e-mail of her as appearing there (julia_roth@safe-mail.net) is no
more valid (I've got an error message back to my mailbox).

If anyone has her current e-mail, I'll be very glad to get it.

Yours,
