Guided Tours to Moldova #bessarabia

Adrienne Escoe <aescoe@...>
 

Can anyone recommend guided tours of Moldova (given in English)?

My father, Julius Nuch, was born in 1909 in the town of Rezina, and emigrated with his family
to the US in 1921, and I would love to visit the area. I am not interested in visiting wineries but
would like an emphasis on history and culture, Jewish, if possible.

Thanks very much,

Adrienne Escoe

Viewmate - 1928-29 Photographs of Zagare young men and women #lithuania

Segal, Aron <Aron.Segal@...>
 

I have placed on ViewMate three photographs taken in Zagare in 1928
or 1929.

All three photographs are of groups of young men and women >from Zagare in
Lithuania. At the time they would have been aged in their very late teens
or early 20s.

Perhaps there are people in these photographs that somebody out there can
recognise and name.

If so, I would be thrilled to hear back >from you on this.

The documents are on ViewMate at the following addresses.

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM29406

My father Hirsh SEGAL is top row, far left and Shmuel (Mula) GOLDSTEIN is
bottom row far right. Both eventually left for Melbourne Australia, my
father in 1929 and Mula in the mid 1930s.

Viewmate - Russion army discharge document for Shalom Segal, former resident of Zagare #lithuania

Segal, Aron <Aron.Segal@...>
 

I would be extremely grateful if somebody is able to provide an accurate
translation of the attached document.

I believe that it is the discharge record >from the Russian army for one of
my relatives, Shalom Segal, son of (Rabbi)Shlomo Netaniel Segal and Judith
Getch. He was born ~ 1880 and migrated to Melbourne Australia in around
1910 or 1911. I was lucky enough to have known him for a number of years.

According to his Australian wedding certificate, he was born in "Mrinn, Rus=
sian Empire" but I know that he lived in Zagare.

An understanding of what is on this document would be invaluable to me as I
have never been able to find any record of him (whom I knew as Sol Segal),
the town called Mrinn and his parents.

This documents is on ViewMate at the following address

Dunayevtsy (Dinovitz) research via Khmelnitskiy Oblast Archives (formerly in Kamenets-Podolski archive) - advice needed #ukraine

Yaron Pedhazur
 

Dear Fellow researchers,

I am interested in researching census and vital records >from the town of Dinovitz (Rus: Dunayvetsy, Ukr: Dunayivtsi).

For the relevant years (19th century), documents of interest have been archived in the Kamenets-Podolski archive. However, due to massive destruction caused in 2003 by a fire, surviving records have been transferred to the Khmelnitskiy Oblast Archives (source: Miriam Weiner's website, http://www.rtrfoundation.org/results.php?rin=1338).

Can anybody advice if there is any way to know which records >from the fire have survived or restored after the fire, and are available for research ? Alternatively, has anyone researched (or even better ... photocopied, extracted) the relevant records before the fire ?

Best wishes, Kol Tuv,

Yaron Pedhazur
Tel Aviv, Israel

p.s. I believe the question about records surviving the fire is of general interest. however, you're welcome also to respond privately, yarpd at yahoo dot com

finding records of our families in warsaw #warsaw #poland

dear friends, I too share the desire and frustration to find records of our families before the war.
what is happening with the agreement to digitalize records and make them accessible by clicking and
ordering? is it functiontatal yet? when I try it seems like the same system as before,
and I get no further. my crystal/kristal/krysztal family seemed to be in lodz and warsaw.
many perished in the ghettos and camps, and there were survivors per fam history.
I cannot seem to get any names of my grandfather's siblings or any info beyond the name
of my greatgrandparents, yetta shupak/enta hinda szchupak and chaim krystal.
there is a marriage record for my greatuncle george/gedalja kristal in lodz but
I cant seem to understand how to order it. is it just too soon?
thanks for any responses. a further teaser, on genealogy road show on pbs, they showed a worker
in the records building in lodz going up to the shelf and taking books down.
can I hire someone to go in ? thanks, sara crys tal
