FROMER Rabbis from Novoselitz #rabbinic

Judy Keiner <J.C.Keiner@...>
 

Does anyone know of a Rav Avraham Yussel FROMER, who had a son, Rav
Chaim FROMMER or FROMER, probably >from the region around Kiev or Lodz?
Rav Chaim's wife was Shaindel Jobrak, and his son was Isadore, born
1887. Isadore emigrated to the US. There may be connections to a
shtetl Novoselitz, but I've no idea which modern Ukrainian or Russian
place that may be. The Shtetl Finder came up with a huge list of
possible equivalents, so I'm not really any the wiser.

Re: : Volunteers in Las Vegas #france

Rosanne Leeson <rdleeson@...>
 

Dear All,

It is with great disappointment that I must report that only one person
responded to our pleas for assistance at the SIG Fair in Las Vegas.

Pierre and I will be working very hard to make our presence known, and
we are truly desperate for more helpers! Please consider your
schedules carefully, and try to come forward to give us a hand, and
some time for a break!

For the very first time, since this SIG was begun, we will be having
the opportunity to translate a Yiskor book for the JewishGen site, and
also some possible Holocaust lists. We will tell you about these at our
SIG meeting at the Conference,. It will be our first opportunity as a
SIG to contribute to JewishGen, >from which we take so much! We will be
looking for volunteers to assist with those projects, also. This is now
a SIG of 338 members. It is time that we stood up, along side the many
other SIGs, whose members selflessly contribute their time and efforts
to help us. As we say here, in baseball talk, "Time to step up to the
plate" and do our bit!

Please look into your consciences and come forward to help in Las Vegas!

Rosanne and Pierre

Dear GerSIG,
I have joined your group. I have been researching the genealogy of my family

I'm missing a lot of information.

Will appreciate any advice referring the possible origin of the family name:

Book of Residents #lodz #poland

Roni S. Liebowitz
 

The Books of Residents are wonderful sources of information for all of us.
However, raising the amount of money needed to purchase all the volumes for
Lodz would take a very long time, if ever. Another crucial issue is
having the Cyrillic translated into English. It seems to make more sense to
hire a researcher to sit in the archives and do the translations without
purchasing copies of the volumes. Even this would be very, very expensive
for a city the size of Lodz with so many Jewish families.

As an alternative approach, perhaps people researching the same surnames
within Lodz could raise funds for a researcher to extract the data for
their surnames. At least this way the funding would be more manageable,
data would target personal interests, and results would be received in a
more timely manner.

I would hope that eventually the information obtained would be donated to
the SIG, compiled/organized into a presenatble format, and shared with all
Lodz researchers.

Lodz Books of Residents #lodz #poland

Subject: Books of Residents

Indexing all the Lodz Books of Residents in Lodz would be a fantastic
project, but it is an enormous enormous task.

I have just talked to Stanley Diamond about it. He estimates that there are
180 volumes, 1440 households, and perhaps 200,000 entries. It could only be
done by professional archivists in Poland and would cost between $30,000 and
$50,000.

Introduction; New book... #romania

Gzsuzsi@...
 

Hello Rom-Siggers,

I am new to your SIG, although a subscriber for ages at H-SIG.
Born in Oradea, my family's background rests mostly within that
area - at least that of the few members I knew.

For those of you who are also researching family >from Oradea,
there is a new book that may be of interest to you - the English
version of Terez Mozes's memoirs, which includes a detailed
description of Oradea's pre-war life, as well as ghetto life,
deportations, her concentration camp experience along with other
Oradean women, and post liberation life in the city. The book
was published by the University of Calgary Press under the title,
"Staying Human Through the Holocaust" and is a translation of her
original book "Beverzett kotablak",previously published in Hungarian
and Romanian in Romania.

Thanks to Lars Menk on JewishGen Wall of Honor #germany

GerSig@...
 

On behalf of all GerSIG members I've posted a "thank you" to Lars Menk in
Berlin for his generous help to many of us in the GerSIG Forum and also by
private E-mail.

You can read it at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/honors0.html

I'm sure that many other GerSIG members owe special thanks to people like
Mr. Menk who have helped them make breakthroughs in family research.

Anyone can create a "Thank You" message on the "Wall of Honor" with a
small donation to JewishGen. It's a win win - you provide recognition to people
who have gone out of their way to help you **** a n d **** you also say
"thanks" to GerSIG and JewishGen for their websites and all the email forums
like the one you are reading now.

You can post a "Thanks" or "Congratulations" or "In Memory of" notice
for all the world to see for about the same cost as a drive to your local
card shop to buy & mail a paper greeting card. And our way is more
friendly to the environment.

Remember - This will remain a free service only as long as
users support us with tax-deductable donations.
