Does anyone have these "NOVEMBER" names on their tree? #general

Leslie Weinberg <artsoul@...>
 

I have been researching my grandmother's family, and know that her
mother, my g-grandmother was Hani NOVEMBER, born in Oradea, Romania, and
married to Adolph (Abraham) REIZ(Reisz, Reis). The researcher I have
hired has not yet found a marriage certificate or a birth certificate
for Hani, so that I may find out the name of the November in the earlier
generation, but he did find that there was a Karoly November who was
godfather of one of Hani and Adolph's sons. Does anyone recognize these
names? The researcher feels that an earlier marriage record he found
for 1865 for a Joachim November and a Bluma Goldstein, might be that of
Hani's parents. He did find a birth certificate for a "Sali" born to
Joachim and Bluma, and he feels this might be a sibling to Hani. He is
still working on finding records for Hani, but I thought someone might
recognize these names.

Genealogical research in Warsaw, Poland #general

taltman@...
 

I'm going on the March of the Living trip this year, and I'm trying to
see if it would be possible or useful to attempt to conduct some
genealogical research while I'm in Poland. My grandfather and his
family lived in Warsaw. Though the trip will visit Warsaw, it will be
on a weekend, so any resources that I might be able to search through
will most likely be closed. I'm seriously considering travelling to
Poland a few days earlier than the main trip, in order that I might
conduct some research before joining the main trip. My main questions
are what resources are in Poland that would be invaluable for my
research, and whether it would be beneficial to go there in person (as
opposed to contacting them via email, FAX, or written correspondence)?

Any information or advice that you could provide along these lines
would be greatly appreciated.

B'Shalom,

T. Altman

And my father said he was born in Berlin. Not true. It was Jaroslaw, Galicia

I am forwarding Ilan GANOT's message about Mazheik website.

This site will be of interest to Latvian researchers since many Jews moved
from Lithuania to Latvia, including some of my mother's relatives the AVRECH
family who resided in Mazheik and some moved to Liepaja in 1879.

There is a lot of information on this site including pictures and documents.

The memorial website to the destroyed Shtetl of MAZHEIK (Mazeikiai in
Lithuanian) has been transferred >from its temporary private website to its
permanent home: the JewishGen's ShtetLinks.

Mazheik was a small Jewish Shtetl, situated at the northwestern part of
Lithuania, close to the Latvian border.

As with many other Shtetls, Jewish life in Mazheik came to its tragic end in
August 1941, when local Lithuanians initiated and executed mass murder of
most of the local Jewish population.
The MAZHEIK Shtetl Memorial Website was initiated and established by a group
of volunteers, children and grandchildren of Jewish natives of Mazheik,
taking upon them the mission of preserving the memory of this vanished
community.

Correction #general

Victoria Reed <researchtoldot@...>
 

I have to correct something I posted earlier. My memory was faulty.

In going back over my grandfather's records, I have discovered that on the
U.S. 1920 and 1930 census, his place of birth is listed as "Galicia". However,
on the ship's manifest when he traveled >from England to the United States in
1913, his place of birth is recorded as Vienna.

Celia Male and I are engaged in an email discussion as to why this was notated
this way. If we come up with any clues that would help others, we'll let you
know.
