Industries in Kovno and Vilna around 1900 #lithuania

Ann Rabinowitz
 

While there are resources in the Lithuanian Archives for researching the
industrial heritage of Lithuania. one can find quite a number of
references online on this topic. There are also a number of museums which
focus on this aspect of the Lithuanian economy.

One link which may be of interest is:
http://msi.lms.lt/ihp/gateway/lt/lt_index.html
which mentions that in 1900 there were 4,000 works with 24,000 workers
in Lithuania and, in fact, at one time, Lithuania was known to have the
largest shoe factory in Europe. Further, the "Vestfalija" metalworks
in Kaunas had 1,010 workers which was one of the largest industries
in the town.

In addition, the main public libraries in Kaunas and Vilnius have
resources which may prove of interest too. One site for the Kaunas
Pubic Library mentions a number of factories, not all owned or
operated by Jews:

Identifying a ROSENTHAL cousin #germany

Maralee Joseph
 

Hello,

On Monday I saw a document posted by my second cousin(a budding
geneologist) on ancestry. My great uncle Max ROSENTHAL died in the
Shoah ,with another brother,his sisters and their respective families.

We have information that the son of max ROSENTHAL and vally ELKELES was
called Ronald ROSE moved to England prior to WW ll.

Ronald ROSE placed their yad vashem entry. The document was a denied
request for reparations by the German claims tribunal.
This was dated 2/27/2007. The request was placed by max's
granddaughter,born in Coventry England , 1945.

Is there a way to trace and contact the person who placed the claim.
I realize this may be a simplistic question, I ask it in the interest
of not reinventing the wheel.

The ROSENTHALs were all born in kunzelsau. My GGF seligman was born in
nagelsburg.

His wife was Elise HOCKENHEIMER. they moved to Mannheim and then to Berlin
where the max ROSENTHAL family lived. My GF berthold was one of 11 children,
Half immigrated, the other half perished in the Shoah.

Many thanks, Maralee Joseph maraleejoseph5@gmail.com

Secrets and Revelations: Reclaiming Our Lost Families
A conversation with Mani Feniger and Jim Van Buskirk

Tuesday, May 13 at 7 P.M. -- FREE
Jewish Community Library
1835 Ellis Street, San Francisco

For two Bay Area writers, the unexpected discovery of a hidden
family past sent them off in unforeseen directions. When Mani Feniger
discovered a lost 1932 photograph of her mother, it led to revelations
about her Jewish ancestors' lives in pre-Nazi Leipzig and clarified the
choices her mother made to survive as her privileged world shattered.

After Jim Van Buskirk's mother showed him a suitcase of his Parisian
opera singer grandmother's memorabilia, he understood the role that his
family's secret Jewish heritage might have played in their saga of
kidnapping, death,and divorce.

Join them in conversation as they discuss their research and transformative
journeys across decades and continents.

Mani Feniger is a therapist, speaker, and author of Journey >from
Anxiety to Freedom and The Woman in the Photograph, winner of the
2012 Best Memoir Award >from the Bay Area Independent Publishers Association.

Jim Van Buskirk, co-author/co-editor of four books, is looking to publish
his family memoir, My Grandmother's Suitcase. His writing has appeared in
a variety of anthologies, magazines, websites, and radio broadcasts.
Jim was a presenter at the 2010 IAJGS Conference in Los Angeles.

Co-presented by Judy Baston and the San Francisco Bay Area Jewish
Genealogical Society.

Pamela Weisberger
 

You are invited to Gesher Galicia's spring regional meeting
coming up in New York City:

Sunday, May 18, 2014

11:00AM - 1:00PM

Center for Jewish History
Forchheimer Auditorium
15 West 16th St.
New York, NY 10011

"Austria Poland, Ukraine: 3 Countries, 5 Archives, 12 Wonderful Days
of Discovery"

In addition to updating all of our new research projects and website,
there will be a special multi-media presentation:

GG board member, John Diener, >from Ottawa, Canada and Pamela
Weisberger will talk about their trip in April 2013 which was timed
to attend the opening of the building Museum of the History of Polish Jews in
Warsaw, where they also got to dine with Piotr Pininski, great
grandson of Count Leonard Pininski, the magnate nobleman who once
owned the Galician town of Grzymalow where John's father and Pamela's
grandfather were born. They examined rare 18th century Jewish records in
the Austrian State Archives and after a short stop in Krakow, to give a
presentation at the JCC to the local population trying to discover more about
their Jewish roots, they journeyed to Przemysl and toured the Polish
State Archives. Once in Ukraine (after walking across the border!)
escorted by Alex and Natalie Dunai, they made research stops at the
Lviv and Ternopil archives, and visited Grzymalow, its ruined synagogue,
cheder and Jewish cemetery. Learn about the trip's highlights and the
challenges of archival research in foreign locales (>from white gloves to
burnt documents and moldy dust) and discover the exceptional opportunity
to connect past to present through investigative genealogical research
and shtetl travel.

Admission is free. No reservations are necessary.

Speakers:

John Diener is an Ottawa, Canada businessman who is also the
vice-president of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Ottawa, and is on
the board of directors of Gesher Galicia. John co-sponsored the
filming of all matzevot in Zhvanets, Ukraine; the data on these 1,200
stones was submitted to JOWBR and he has amassed 2,500 names on his
family tree. John is shtetl leader for Grzymalow, Ukraine and writes a
monthly column, "Connecting the Branches," for the Ottawa Jewish
Bulletin. He is the proud owner of Saslove's Meat Market in the center
of Ottawa's historic marketplace, which has been an institution in the
city since 1954.

Pamela Weisberger is president and research coordinator of Gesher
Galicia and 1st V.P./program chair for the Jewish Genealogical Society
of Los Angeles. She is also a professional genealogist and has
conducted research in Polish, German, Israeli, Ukrainian, and Austrian
archives.

Hope you can join us there! (To be followed by the JGSNY meeting at 2:00PM

Yiddish translation of postcard from Eisentein (?) to J. Rubin, 1914 #general

Viewmate # 33634 and 33635 are a photo of two dapper gentlemen >from 1914

Yiddish I can sort out is the last name in the signature which I think
is Eisenstein, perhaps the Eisenstein family >from Droghichin.  I would

if  you recognize the people in the feature or J. Rubin.

I have posted on Viewmate 3 death records and one 2-page marriage
record >from Ostrowo, Prussia, now Ostrow Wielkopolski, Poland. I
would very much appreciate a full transcription of the handwritten
parts of these documents into modern German. The handwriting is
typical 19th century German, and I cannot read those parts. However,
I can read printed German, and can translate the printed parts to
English myself, so I do not need the printed portions of the documents
transcribed.

They are ViewMate items 33622 through 33626. Please respond on the
ViewMate pages or privately.

Thank you to the wonderful volunteers that help us all!

Hi everybody,

We are starting indexing of the Lipkani cemetery. It appears to be very
large with old matsevot. I have received already 1,500 images of the
stones, and so far most of them are in Hebrew, some in Russian. These are
only images >from one sector and there is going be another one.

Please let me know if you want to be on the team. If so, I will send you
instructions, and a set of images.
Many people helped me at the ViewMate with a number of projects: Bendery,
Chimishliya, Tiraspol - THANKS to ALL of them! Your skills helped a lot in
these projects, and hope you will be on the team for the Lipkani project
too.
