A JewishGen win/win project #southafrica

Carol W. Skydell <cskydell@...>
 

Dear 'Genners

You have always sought a JewishGen that meets your own needs, a JewishGen
that keeps the services free to you the user, the researcher of your
personal Jewish heritage. You require a JewishGen that's committed to
finding and presenting projects that ensure a win/win situation.

"Published by JewishGen" is just such a project. You've told us by your
enthusiastic response so far that "Preserving our Litvak Heritage...A
History of 31 Jewish Communities in Lithuania" by Josef Rosin was the
correct book to launch this new project.

In addition to being a monumental work of 736 pages with over 500
photographs, some >from private family collections, there is an extensive
forward written by the eminent scholar Professor Dov Levin. Each chapter is
devoted exclusively to one of the 31 Lithuanian communities, a list too
lengthy to mention here, but a visit to the JewishGenMall will identify
them for you.

To make this another win/win situation, you can purchase Rosin's book at a
40% discount, but only up until April 30th, and only through the
JewishGenMall. All proceeds >from sales at the Mall flow into the JewishGen
General Fund which helps defray the mounting operating expenses. So, every
time you purchase any product >from the JewishGenMall you are helping us
meet our financial needs. The more JewishGen benefits >from your purchases,
the longer we can keep >from becoming a fee-based service, something
JewishGen has been trying so hard to avoid since it first began.

If Lithuania is ***your*** ancestral home, Rosin's expanded history offers
you extensive material >from archival sources as well as personal memoirs.
It is truly a picture of the life and times in these communities >from their
early beginnings and ending with the Nazi's attempts to annihilate all of
Lithuanian Jewry. For any researcher who is looking for information about
Lithuania, especially about these 31 towns, this book is a personal
treasure. It will also be a treasure for your children and your
grandchildren.

Whatever country is part of your research interests, please take a look at
all the material you will find in the mall. Just select that country >from
the drop-down search list in the TOPICS field. You will find an
extraordinary collection at very competitive prices. If Josef Rosin's book
is of interest, click on the picture of the book cover to read more about
it and place your order at the pre-publication 40% discounted price which
is only $52.80, plus S&H. You can buy as many copies as you need for
other family members at this heavily discounted price.

For a real win/win situation, make the JewishGen Mall your first stop when
looking to purchase Jewish-interest books, software, CDs, or
videos. You'll save money on most purchases, and you'll help keep all of
the valuable JewishGen services free. Visiting
<http://www.JewishGenMall.Org>www.jewishgenmall.org will truly be a win/win
situation!

Disna/Lepel #belarus

Aliza <alizam@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I am researching the area of Disna, now located in Belarus.

My great grandmother, Toba Leah the daughter of Shneur was >from a place
called Sloboda Dedisna. I have been told that means a very small "shtetl"
on the road to Disna.

My great grandfather Shalom Dov Ber STEINHART was >from Lepel Vitebsk. From
different Ellis Island records I have found, my grandfather and his
siblings report being born either in Disna or Lepel. I used the
JewishGen distance calculator to determine that the distance between the two
towns is 81km/50 miles.

Does anyone know anything about the route >from Lepel to Disna (in the 1880's
and 1890's)? Is it likely that Sloboda Dedisna would be on this road? Does
anyone know if there are birth, marriage, and death
certificates available for Disna?

In addition, I would appreciate it if someone would send me a current
email address for Batya, the Disna coordinator.

Thank you for your help.

SACHS #romania

Jaclyn Sachs <jsachs@...>
 

My ancestor, Herman SACHS (1889-1940), an artist, emigrated >from Romania to Chicago with his
family as a child. His father was a painter who had done portraits of Queen Elizabeth I ("Carmen
Sylva"). Their surname was probably changed >from SEGAL/SEGALL to SACHS, possibly before arriving
in the U.S. Herman spoke German, which prompts me to think that maybe he and his family were >from
Bukowina.

A few years ago, a woman sent my father, Alan, a SACHS family tree. He misplaced it, and we have
spent the past few years trying to find it.

If this sounds familiar, or you can provide any insight on SACHS/SEGAL in Romania, I would greatly
appreciate hearing >from you!

Sincerely,
