Dear Celia:

You are amazing. I can't thank you enough for putting all of this effort
into a stranger's work. Every time I receive something >from you I get more
excited. It would be thrilling if you could find on something else. You have
already done so very much. I'm wondering if this man married Bertha GRUN
"about 1872" or had children named Fannie about 1875 or Sadie about 1880. Any
suggestions that you could give me would be wonderful. If not, thanks a
million for what you've already done. Actually, thanks a million any way.

finding Washington D.C. obituary from 1945 #general

Joseph Lonstein
 

Hi,

I'm interested in finding the obituary for a distant relative who died in
Washington D.C. on August 17th of 1945 or 1946 and was buried in the old
Adas Israel cemetery. Can anyone suggest what newspapers were in existence
at that time (other than the Washington Post) that might have the obituary
of a prominent member of the Jewish and general D.C. community? The JG
message archives don't suggest anything.

Thanks for any help,

Dear All,

You have all been enormously generous in sharing information for a
member of our JGS, who plans to visit Metz next summer. I have passed
all of the very helpful messages on to her, and she is quite overwhelmed
by the knowledge and generosity of those in this group, particularly the
many members of the Cercle de Genealogie Juive! She is now very well
prepared for her planned trip next summer, and I thank you all on her
behalf!

Lodz Birth, Marriage and Death records, 1899-1905 #general

Roni S. Liebowitz
 

Dear Lodz Researchers,

Since we have many new Lodz researchers, it is important to
review what indices are now available on-line and the status
of other Lodz indexing.

As Lodz Archive Coordinator for the Jewish Records
Indexing-Poland/Polish State Archives (JRI-Poland/PSA)
Project, I am pleased to provide this update.

1826-1877

These records were microfilmed by the LDS (Mormons) and were
indexed by volunteers under the Lodz "Shtetl CO-OP."

1878-1898

The first Lodz PSA project was for the years 1878 to 1898
and that data has been online for many years.

1899-1905

The "Seven-Year Initiative" to index 43,501 Lodz birth,
marriage and death records was launched in 2001 and all the
1899 to 1905 records were computerized by the JRI-Poland
team in Warsaw. This data was entered in the original
Cyrillic and automatically converted to Polish spelling
(Latin characters).

The indices >from 1899 to 1901 have been added to the
JRI-Poland database and can be searched on-line.

Although completed, the indices >from 1902 to 1905 cannot be
added to the on-line database until we can meet our
obligations to do so.

For those of you not familiar with the background, in 1997
JRI-Poland entered into an agreement with the Polish State
Archives to index Jewish vital records *not* microfilmed by
the Mormons (LDS). Each year the Lodz USC ("Urzad Stanu
Cywilnego" - civil registration office) transfers the
eligible (100-year-old) registers to the Lodz Branch of the
Polish State Archives. The records then become available to
JRI-Poland for indexing.

The 1902-1905 data will enable you to further expand your
research of the time period when not only our grandparents
and their siblings were born and married, but also when many
of our parents, aunts and uncles were born in Lodz. We hope
the 26,735 birth, marriage and death records in these four
years will result in breakthroughs in your family research!

A list of all surnames found in the new data (1899-1905) is
now online at:
http://www.jri-poland.org/psa/lodz2_surn.htm

o More about the 1899 - 1905 "Lodz Seven-Year Initiative:"

Because of the vast quantity of surviving Jewish vital
records for Lodz and the large number of records that become
available for indexing each year, the Seven-Year Initiative
was created. The advantage of this approach to you, the
researcher, was that you were asked to participate in only
one project covering these seven years, rather than a new
one each year.

The Lodz Jewish vital records for these years are:

Year Entries
1899: 4,951
1900: 5,944
1901: 5,890
1902: 6,952
1903: 6,405
1904: 7,290
1905: 6,088

Requirements for each year must be met before the data for
that particular year is released to the JRI-Poland database.
The Excel file contains an order form enabling you to order
copies of those records not yet online.

JRI-Poland is an independent non-profit tax-exempt
Organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal
Revenue Code.Under special arrangement, the JRI-Poland web
site, mailing list, and database are hosted by JewishGen.

Updates on the Lodz Seven-Year Initiative will be posted to
the JRI-Poland/PSA project status webpage at:
http://www.jri-poland.org/psa/status.htm
Click on "Lodz (phase 2)" in the drop-down menu.

The project to index the records of 1906 and later will be
announced after the obligations of 1899 to 1905 have been
completed.

project and receive the entire file now, please contact one

In commemoration of 64 years since the destruction of the Pinsk Jewish
community, and 500 years since the founding of the community, we welcome all
Pinskers, descendants of Pinskers, and descendants of the small towns and
villages in the vicinity of Pinsk, to our annual memorial assembly, which
will take place on November 8, 2006, in the small hall at the Tel Aviv
Cinematheque, on 2 Sprinzak St. The program is scheduled for 17.00. As usual
there will be an informal gathering beginning at 16.00. It is a chance to
meet people >from Pinsk, and to perhaps find someone who can help identify
old photos, or who remembers your family.
Because of the 500 years commemoration, the program will be somewhat
expanded this year.
There is an annual membership fee of NIS50, to be paid by all participants,
which covers some of the costs of the assembly.

Need Help In Winnipeg locating burials #general

Barry E Chernick
 

Hi Genners,
I am trying to locate the graves of two/three people. Morris THOMAS
and his son Phil/Phille THOMAS/THOMPSON. According to the 1911 Winnipeg
Census Morris THOMAS was born in 1859 in Russia, his son Phil THOMAS was
born in 1889 in Russia. The family came to Canada in 1898. Both father
and son were "drivers". I have not been able to find any record of Morris
before or after 1911. Phille THOMPSON married Rebeca MACOVITCH on June
14, 1911 in Winnipeg. I also found a listing of the naturalization of
Phille THOMPSON, born in Russia and naturalized in Winnipeg on August 28,
1922 with the occupation of "motorman".
I suppose that Phil THOMAS and Phille THOMPSON could be two
different people. That would be one of the things that would be solved by
finding these burials.
If you can help I would be very appreciative. Please respond
privately.
