I seem to think that I read somewhere that someone has a CD with all the
Draft boards for NYC. Does any one remember seeing this? Where can I buy
the CD??

Re: Records of Arrivals #general

To all those who found their relatives by searching in the Passenger Arrival
Soundexes and Indexes I am jealous!!
I looked for my husband's maternal grandmother and grandfather for 10 years
with no luck -- I finally found both of them under other than their final
names and dates!!

I still haven't found a trace of the his paternal grandfather and the 4
brothers he came with nor my husband's grandmother who came as a child with
her own father!!!

So, no guarantee that you can find them in the Index, but don't give up. I'm
just about to go start on the Missel or possibly Misselski side again!

Visas for Life: the Stories of Chiune Sugihara & Dr. Feng Shan Ho

A documentary exhibit commemorating the lives of two diplomats who rescued Jews
during World War II.

October 12 - November 22, 2000
(closed October 15th through 22nd)

Janice Charach Epstein Gallery
Jewish Community Center of Metropolitan Detroit
D. Dan & Betty Kahn Building
6600 West Maple Road
West Bloomfield, MI 48322
248-661-7641


Opening Night Lecture and Reception
at the Jewish Community Center of Metropolitan Detroit
Handleman Hall and Janice Charach Epstein Gallery
Thursday, October 12, 2000 7:30 p.m.

Guest Speakers: Hiroki Sugihara and Manli Ho

Hiroki Sugihara, son of Chiune Sugihara, will speak about his father, the
Japanese consul in Lithuania, who wrote thousands of exit visas for Jews
against the orders of his government. In 1985, Chiune Sugihara was honored by
Yad Vashem, Israel's Holocaust Memorial and Museum, for saving an estimated
2500 lives.

Namli Ho, daughter of Feng Shan Ho, will speak about her father, the Chinese
Consul General in Vienna, Austria, who wrote visas for Jews seeking haven in
Shanghai. It is estimated that Dr. Ho was one of the most successful rescuers
of Jews during the Holocaust in terms of the number of lives he saved.

A dessert reception will follow the lecture. This event, as well as the
exhibit, is sponsored by Panasonic Automotive and open to the public, free of
charge. The exhibit, curated by Holocaust Educational Traveling Exhibits of
San Francisco, Eric Saul, Director, tell a compelling and important story of
two rescuers.

VISAS FOR LIFE.................the Sugihara Story

Chiune Sugihara was a member of the Japanese diplomatic service who was serving
in the Lithuanian capital of Kovno at the beginning of World War II. When
Hitler's army invaded Poland in the fall of 1939, many Polish Jews escaped
occupied territory by fleeing into Lithuania.

During the summer of 1940, crowds of refugees spent days outside the Japanese
consulate, begging for transit visas. Finally, Sugihara decided to go against
his government's explicit orders and issue the transit visas to the desperate
Jews.

For two weeks, Sugihara worked in a frenzy, trying to write as many visas as he
could before the consulate was closed by the Soviet government. He wrote
thousands of visas, all of which had to be written by hand in intricate
Japanese characters. His wife, Yukiko, was the only person who could assist
him. When the consulate was finally closed, Sugihara had "officially" written
2,139 visas.

VISAS FOR LIFE.......the Story of Dr. Feng Shan Ho

Dr. Feng Shan Ho became the Chinese Consul General in Vienna after the
Anschluss (the annexation of Austria by Nazi Germany in March 1938). Vienna
had the third largest Jewish community in Europe.

In order to leave Austria, Jews had to show a visa to prove that they would be
accepted into another country. Shanghai, China (under Japanese control)
required no visa for entry, but Consul General Ho created visas and issued them
to Jews so that they would be able to leave Austria.

Although he lived in a country now under Nazi rule, Dr. Ho continued to risk
his career -- and possibly the safety of himself and his family -- by helping
Jews leave Austria.

I don't know if it's AOL, but evertime I receive new messages, they have been

Correction: It was *an* but not *the* Anglo-Jewish pronunciation. It was
always "shabbes" in the North and Scotland where Litvak immigrants
predominated.

It rhymes with "lobbes" -- Anglo-Yiddish for "naughty boy"
-- usually called a "mazzik" by American Jews). In fact, we had a
naughty
little song when I was a kid, which (sung to a well known Latino
melody, I
think) went like this:

He is a lobbes -- he is a lobbes --
He takes the shikses /to the pictures/ on the shobbes!
The rhyme that I remember went as follows:-

The boy stood on the burning deck
His father called him lobbes
Because he wouldn't wash his dirty neck
To go to shul on shabbes !

That doesn't always work. After a fruitless search of the soundex index for
every known form of my family name, I found their listing on a 1906 ship's
manifest >from information on an uncle's 1918 naturalization documents.

With the family name and five first names as written on the manifest I
went back to the Soundex to see if they were listed. Even allowing for
spelling variations, I still struck out.

This inquiry is typical of many we read every day coming >from members who
have not learned their ABC's and are using the digest for a source of data
when JewishGen has already set up the machinery.

If you want to contact a member or the Postal or E-mail address you have is
no longer correct, before sending a message to the membership of Jewishgen
or that of a SIG always check the archives and then if nothing is found,
the JGFF (family finder) at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/

Had Mr. Perlman done his homework he would have easily found David Rooker's
address as: < rooker@worldnet.att.net >

Normally I would answer this member privately, but the number of digest
inquiries is increasing every day and it takes our members more and more
time to keep up to date.
