A JewishGen win/win project #ciechanow #poland

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 '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

situation!

My father in law received 5 Bronze Stars for combat in World War II.
Unfortunately, I did not discover this until I located his Army papers
long after his passing. He never spoke a word of these awards. Noting
that many service records burned in 1970, is there another location in
which military honors were recorded? I would like to get the when, where
and how of his awards.

Edward Stern
I would also like to know about this. My uncle was shot in the tear duct a
few days before 11/11 1918, on the Western Front, and was on disability for
the wound the rest of his life, but he claimed he never got any medals--I
was thinking about the purple heart. The wound is mentioned--date and
engagement--in his discharge papers, which I have. He was bitter about the
war and Wilson's promises, so maybe he never applied, but I would like to
find out about it.
Also, are the unit histories available anywhere? Officers were supposed to
write up every engagement, so I've always hoped it would be possible to
read about the actions that relatives participated in (their units are
mentioned in the discharge paper). Another uncle claimed he only guarded
prisoners, but at the same time he was gassed. WW I veterans, who are
mostly gone now, were always reluctant to talk about their experiences.

Moravian familianten books #austria-czech

Jan O. Hellmann <jan@...>
 

I recently posted information, that moravian famillianten books should be in
national Archive in Prague. I have to take back. The information I got from
other source in Prague, was apparently wrong. I have been now informed from
the Archive directly as follows:

Quote in poor translation

"We can inform that familliant books are in national Archive under separate
trust, however only Bohemians. For the Moravians ones does not exist
complete collection, sometimes the books can be found together with material
from the various estates, where the Jewish families lived.
In your case it is recommended to try the Country Archive in Brno or local
archive in Trebic."

Unquote

Just for information I was looking for material conc. Police, which is
nearby Trebic.

I am sorry to have transmitted wrong information

Samuel HIRSCH (a.k.a. Shmuel bar Zvi HIRSCH), Sara or Sarah, Abram & Harry Hirsch #romania

cruemmler@...
 

I am looking for my wife’s ancestors >from Romania as well as their descendants.
Samuel HIRSCH (a.k.a. Shmuel bar Zvi Hirsch) b. 04/15/1866. Immigrated to the
United States at age 38 on November 11, 1904 aboard the SS. Kroonland. Samuel was
accompanied by his wife Sara (or Sarah), age 34, and sons Abram, age 12, and
“Hersch” Hirsch (a.k.a. Harry Hyman Hirsch), age 5.
The passenger manifest also included: Ethnicity: Roumania, Hebrew Place of
Residence: Fessy (presumably France, but may should have been Jassy (in Romania))
Port of Departure: Antwerp, Belgium.
Samuel, Sara, Abram, Harry and another son, Moishe Hirsch, age 3, appear in the
1910 Census in Cleveland City, OH. Samuel’s occupation is listed as a street
peddler in the 1910 census and the family’s language is listed as Yiddish. Census
form noted that Sara and Samuel had 7 children, with only 3 still living; i.e. 4
died before coming to the United States.

Samuel Hirsch died on August 17, 1910 in Cleveland, OH at age 44, and was buried
on Aug 18, 1910 in Cleveland, OH. His Occupation: Tailor, Name of Father: Harry
Hirsch and Name of Mother: Hina Huih.

Harry Hirsch (my wife's grandfather) became a presb. minister in the 1920's and
NEVER (i.e. Absolutely Refused to) talked about his father, mother or other family
members so everything we know to date is based on what we’ve been able to piece
together >from the Ellis Island records.
