Pinkus BRAMMER, Uhersky Brod #austria-czech

meretz
 

Recently I received a nice photograph of Pinkus BRAMMER (1828-1924,
Uhersky Brod). On the photo, taken when he was already old, he is
seen with a black rimmed hat and wearing 5 military style medals on
his breast. I wonder whether anybody researches the Uhersky Brod
BRAMMER family - I would like to learn more on this man and how he
gained his medals. I will be glad to send the photo directly to any
interested researcher.

The Family GERSON #southafrica

Joyaa Antares
 

Dear All,
I am new to this group. I am researching the ZAUSMER family and, in
relation to this post, anyone who knows anything at all about the
descendants of a Fanny GERSON, nee ZAUSMER, including two of her sons, Arno
Ismar GERSON (1907-1975) and Leo (Leonard) GERSON (1908-1985), and one
daughter, Nancy Ambor SURNAME UNKNOWN. Fanny originally hailed >from Riga,
Latvia and I believe that she migrated with the rest of her family to Holon,
Israel, probably a little before WW2. This branch of the family has been
lost to the rest of us for at least 30 years but I discovered today, through
Saul Issroff directing me to the South African Jewish Rootsbank, that Arno
and Leo are buried at the West Park Cemetery, Johannesburg. A huge and very
exciting find for us. I am now looking for anyone either who knew them, or
who knows how I can contact any of their descendants in South Africa or
Israel. Thank you.

Panevezys District Document Distributrion #lithuania

Michael H. Witkin <michael@...>
 

Dear Litvak Researchers,

Yesterday, we distributed a partial list of Jewish residents of the shtetl
of Panevezys 1940 (260 records). This list was compiled in recent years
from newspaper articles, personal interviews, and advertisements. It was not
recorded in 1940.

We also distributed 1816 and 1818 revision lists Pumpenai and Pusalotas.
These were in addition to lists of the same time period for Linkuva, Birzai,
and other Panevezys shetetlim which we distributed earlier this year. More
1816 lists are in the translation pipeline.

This research group is now translating the 1887 Birzai family list. We have
about 75% of the 10,000 records completed and we hope to complete and
distribute the project in the very near future.

This project, because of its size, has been a significant drain on our
finances. We hope you will consider making a contribution, or an additional
contribution in the near future. We have committed to many additional
family and revision lists. Your contribution will help to insure a
continuing flow of new documents.

To make a contribution, go to:

35,000 death, and 12,500 marriage records.



Included among the new records are the vital records for Bercel,

Kisvarda, Mandok, Nagykallo, Nyirbator, Nyirkarasz, Szinyer-varalji,

1864 and the majority of births for Miskolc have also been completed.



There are a great many people who contributed their time and efforts
to make these records available to researchers now and far into the
future. These people deserve our appreciation and admiration and gratitude.



They include:

Special thanks go to Alex Miller, who acted as the project

records project.



Special thanks also go to the wonderful people at JewishGen who are
all overworked, but have gone out of their way to make this project
successful: Joyce Field, Carol Skydell, Michael Tobias, Warren
Blatt, and Becky Rodgers.



Moshe Shavit of Israel wrote a macro to renumber the records. Given
the number of records involved, I am eternally grateful to Moshe for
his help. :-)



We are now working on the records for Budapest, Eger, Gyongyos,
Kosice, Miskolc, Moson, Presov, and Stropkov. We are in continuing
need of transcribers, in that our philosophy is to utilize as many
transcribers as possible, so that no individual workload is too
