The following index is a partial listing of names taken >from Eye Witness
reports of the mass murders which took place in Saukenai, Skaudvile, and
Uzventis during 1941. Other Eye Witness reports tell of Jewish life in a
variety of shtetlach within the Kelme Region of Siauliai Uyezd. It has been
the hope of our board to be able to have all the materials translated, with
the names in a database, and the stories published on our website. The
possibility of collecting these materials grows more difficult, as elderly
witnesses pass on. If you are interested in contributing financially to help
continue this worthwhile project, please send all donations [tax-deductible in
USA] to:

HARRIS #lithuania

Jill <kayjd@...>
 

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone would have any good ideas about last
names...my family in Lithuania apparently had a name like
Heir...Ger...but when they came to America it was Harris...would anyone
know which surname would be most likely? I haven't been able to find
out any more information.

Thanks in advance for your help,

Ethnic newspapers #general

When my grandfather came to the U.S. in 1913 he wrote some articles for
Novoye Russkiye newspaper in NYC. Does anyone know if Russian language
newspapers of that era are preserved anywhere?

Boston Yeshiva #general

Jean A. Holz <jholz@...>
 

My mother, Fanny Greenberg, studied at a Yeshiva in Boston,
Massachusetts. Mom is now 82 and we wondered if we could get her school
records. Mom was born in Quincy, MA. It was very unusual for a girl to
attend Yeshiva, but my grandfather felt that education was the most
important thing he could give his children. Of the four surviving
children, only my mother attended the Yeshiva. Mom remembers that her
teachers would let her out of school 20 minutes early, so she could get
home safely because most of the kids were boys! My question: What was
the name of the Yeshiva in Boston? Does it still exist? If it does,
could someone send me the name and address so I can write for records?
Thanks in advance.

I am intrigued because for a long time I have believed that the
microfilmed soundex, index, and manifest pages were at pretty
much the same level of legibility, whether viewed at NARA , FHC,
or via rental film. Although I have ultimately found the pages
I was searching (after 1900) I have viewed many an unreadable
soundex or index card and manifest page in passing.
I'm really intrigued too. I was at the National Archives in DC
searching through the 1897-1902 NYC passenger arrival indexes and
these films are so light that parts are almost impossible to read.
Especially the part I need, of course. :( The Mormon FHC versions
were no better. Even using various colored papers to try to view
the image, I just could not make out most of the info that I needed.
As it was, I could barely make out the person's name.

I was told by the staff at the DC National Archives that these
cards were destroyed after filming.

On several old documents relating to my Russian grandfather, the first
name of his father is spelled as "Mordko" (Mordko Smuel Moisechowitsch

Ludwig STRAUSS #general

Ellie Roden <eroden@...>
 

I joined this discussion group a few days ago and have been reading the
posts with great interest.

I am searching for my mother's first cousin, Ludwig STRAUSS, >from Bad
Salzschlirf (near Fulda) Germany. Ludwig is the son of Solly and Bertha
Strauss, both of whom died in Germany during the Holocaust. Ludwig left Bad
Salzschlirf in 1933 for Fulda. That is the last we know of him.

Any help would be appreciated!
