Re: Help from British genners - Pinchas Hersh (Philip) KANO - #general

On 17 April, Avraham Y. Kahana posted requesting advice and assistance to
identify the parents of Pinchas Hersh (Philip) KANO, who immigrated to
England, >from Poland.

Avraham had found a UK National Archives Discovery catalogue entry for
Philip's British Naturalization in 1949
http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C12361045 . This is a
BNA series certificate and in most instances includes the names (and
nationalities) of the parents of the person being Naturalised. You can
order a copy of the certificate >from the National Archives via their website.

Philip KANO and his family are in the 1939 UK Register - a bit like a mini
census. To view the images you will need to access a relevant commercial
website holding these images - but this will not give you the names of
his parents.

Regarding requesting further assistance for UK research and records you
could try sending a message to the Jewish Genealogical Society of Great
Britain (JGSGB) via https://www.jgsgb.org.uk/content/contact-us and join
the Jewish Communities and Records (JCR-UK) discussion group which is
free, see https://www.jewishgen.org/jcr-uk/subscribe.htm . Also there is
an active Facebook group run by JGSGB. Just type Jewish Genealogical
Society of Great Britain into the Facebook search box. It is a closed
group so you need to request to join the group - it is free and friendly.

Thank you so much for all the community genners who replied, as usual,
promptly and so helpfully.
Pinchas Hersh Kano z'l 's grave indicates this is a match.

Thanks to you my family has grown immensely,

Yom Ha'Atzmaut 5778
April 19, 2018

Dear JewishGen Family,

In honor of Yom Ha'Atzmaut, and the 70th birthday of the State of Israel,
here are links to a few articles contained in various Yizkor Books that
JewishGen has translated. They contain first-hand accounts of the
dreams, yearnings, desires, and hardships that people experienced to
reach the land of Israel.

(1) Plonsk, Poland: "My Youth in Plonsk" - by David Ben-Gurion.
https://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/plonsk/plo031.html
This article >from the Plonsk, Poland Yizkor Book was written by the first
Prime Minister of Israel, and describes, in great detail, his desire to
embrace the Hebrew language, and to live in Israel >from a young age.

(2) "I Made Aliyah on the Eve of the Holocaust" (scroll down to p. 195) -
by Sarah Yasmin (Schwartzblat).
https://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/rokitnoye/rok179.html
Anyone who has read the Leon Uris book "Exodus" or seen the movie
will recognize this story written by a former resident of Roktyne (which
is included in the Roktyne, Ukraine Yizkor Book). Sarah writes of the
squalid conditions of the decrepit ships, the fears of people who knew
the chances to reach 'Eretz Yisroel' "were dim" and the British efforts
to turn away refugees.

(3) "In the days of the Second Aliyah" - by Rivka Machneimy (Holodenko).
https://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/bender/ben081.html
This article (>from the Bender, Moldova Yizkor Book) was written by the
daughter of Baruch Holodenko (a well-known educator, and delegate to
the Zionist Congress), who made Aliyah at the age of 17, and against
the wishes of her father.

4) ">from Divenishok to Eretz-Israel" (scroll down to page 119) - by
Khenye Harari. https://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/dieveniskes/die087.html
A small article (>from the Divenishok, Lithuania Yizkor Book) which
imparts the joy and anticipation the author felt as she approached Israel.

Looking for Teofila LAWSON or family, Flushing, NY, USA; and family of Tamar Leizor KEMPNER, Israel #poland

Joyaa Antares
 

Hi All,

I am trying to trace Teofila LAWSON, born Teofila Janina KEMPNER, now 86
years old. I believe that we are related through our common ancestry - the
KEMPNERs of Lodz.

I am also trying to trace the family of Tamar Leizor KEMPNER, age unknown,
likely living in Israel. I am seeing more information in order to establish
whether we are related through the KEMPNERs of Lodz.

Any help gratefully received!

Thanks, Joyaa ANTARES

JRI Poland #Poland Looking for Teofila LAWSON or family, Flushing, NY, USA; and family of Tamar Leizor KEMPNER, Israel #poland

Joyaa Antares
 

Hi All,

I am trying to trace Teofila LAWSON, born Teofila Janina KEMPNER, now 86
years old. I believe that we are related through our common ancestry - the
KEMPNERs of Lodz.

I am also trying to trace the family of Tamar Leizor KEMPNER, age unknown,
likely living in Israel. I am seeing more information in order to establish
whether we are related through the KEMPNERs of Lodz.

Any help gratefully received!

Thanks, Joyaa ANTARES

Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia

JewishGen.org and The Museum of the Jewish People Announce A Strategic Partnership #usa

Groll, Avraham
 

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL / NEW YORK, NY -- JewishGen.org and The Museum of the
Jewish People at Beit Hatfutsot announced a strategic partnership today,
bringing together two of the Jewish world's most iconic names for
innovation in advancing online genealogy and identity exploration.
The partnership envisions the that the family tree collections held by
both parties, accounting for nearly 20,000 trees in total, will be
completely accessible to visitors of both JewishGen.org and The Museum
of the Jewish People. Beginning in the late Fall 2018, researchers will
be provided with unprecedented access to vital Jewish family history
information that is available in no other facility. This new search
platform will dramatically increase the likelihood that researchers will
find information they are seeking.

Avraham Groll, Director of JewishGen.org, stated, "JewishGen is committed
to doing everything we can to provide the highest quality of access to
records, information, and tools that researchers can utilize in their
quest to connect with relatives, discover their unique family history,
and understand what it means to be part of the Jewish people. Our new
partnership with The Museum of the Jewish People will help us achieve
this goal, by eliminating the need to spend time or financial resources
searching multiple facilities. For JewishGen, connecting with the Museum
of the Jewish People comes during a stage of significant growth >from both
an archival and technological perspective, and as we set ambitious
strategic priorities for the years to come, I believe that this new
relationship will herald continued opportunities for our organizations to
collaborate on behalf of the entirety of the Jewish people."

"Too often we see organizations cajoling for space and prominence, when
they should be aligning. The treasures that JewishGen and the Museum of
the Jewish People have each built up over the decades are invaluable and
irreplaceable, and it’s a privilege to be able to re-make that
connection, through technology and partnership building," said Dan Tadmor,
CEO of The Museum of the Jewish People at Beit Hatfutsot.

For the Museum, connecting its Douglas E. Goldman Jewish Genealogy Center
with JewishGen comes during the final development stages of its new "Open
Databases Project," due for launch later this year. The system will
integrate each of the Museum’s five separate databases together with
outside archives >from partners such as JewishGen, allowing users to
curate their own personalized library of Jewish life, drawing on
genealogy, community, photography, music and film.

What's more, through an open API and an enhanced data upload function,
both developers and personal users can further enrich the archives at any
point, by uploading their own institutional, personal and family content,
creating a shared, online repository for centuries of Jewish life and
culture.
