Re: NY City Area Cemeteries - Offering Assistance

Alan Tabachnick
 

I have family in the Maimonides cemetery in Brooklyn.  895 Jamaica Avenue.  The names I would be interested in would be Hesse, Wertheim, and Manheim or Manheimer.  Simon Hesse (d. 1897) was my 2nd great grandfather.  His wife was Phillipine Manheim or Manheimer.  Any help would be wonderful.  Thanks much.


Re: Arolsen Archives: Search Link Correction

Odeda Zlotnick
 

My attempts to find through USHMM things I found in the Arolsen Archives fail.
The link to Arolsen Archives online is: https://collections.arolsen-archives.org/en/search/ 
It takes getting used to the interface, 

If you find an image, you should: 1) click on the square that lets you see the image in its original size (see attached image), and then, 2) depending on your browser you can download it, or (if using Google Chrome) right click on it and ask to view it in a separate tab).
You can also move it about in the small viewing frame (an option I don't really like).
Make sure to ask for the original size first.


Re: Polish citizenship #poland

YBentham
 

In relation to Polish citizenship, I was misguided in thinking that because my father, grandparents and 9 uncles and aunts (all ROPSCHITZ/ROPSCHUTZ) were born in Lwow, Galicia, between 1865 and 1913, this gave me the right to apply. I was told that as Poland itself did not exist until 1918 none of my relatives were born in Poland. Maybe everyone else realised this but I didn’t – my fault! My father’s passport said he was born in Poland!

Hi Vered,
If you're mobile - the whole Bad Arolsen Archive including the things that are not online (identical to what they have in USHMM) is available in the Yad VaShem library in Jerusalem, Israel

Kupil, Ukraine #ukraine

Steve Stein
 

I am in the process of starting a KehilaLinks page for Kupil (a.k.a. Kupel),
Ukraine, 49°36' N, 26°31' E. To disambiguate, this is the town that is near
Bazaliya and Volochisk, in what was Volhynia Guberniya, Starokonstantinov
district. It is NOT Kovel, Ukraine; Kowal, Poland; or Kapyl, Belarus. My
paternal grandparents were married there before immigrating to the USA.

I have a little bit of material but would appreciate any additional
contributions of photos or other resources for this place. Please contact me
privately. Thanks in advance.

Immigration to Brazil

Asher Vardi
 

My wife's Grand Mother immigrated to Brazil from Galicia/Poland in 1935. She traveled by boat with her three children. I could not find any trace of their journey. I think that they boarded the ship in Italy. I would appreciate any help or advice on how to find any information related to their trip.

Thank you.

French Genealogy Commercial Site Filae.com Starts English Version #france

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

As of September 2019, Filae.com has started an English version of their genealogy website.  Filae started their website in December 2016, although Filae was originally created in 1994 by Toussaint Roze. While it allows uses to build their family tree from digitized arches what is of interest to most are the online accessing of French records which include over 150 million images of French census and Vital Records that they indexed.  For English see: https://en.filae.com/  the French website is: http://filae.com Through the URLS you may create a free account.

 

I have no affiliation with Filae and am posting this solely for the information of the reader.

(US-PA) October 27 is One Year Anniversary of Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooting: Synagogue to be Center for Jewish Life in US

Jan Meisels Allen
 

A memorial for the victims of the Tree of Life synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh. (Hane Grace Yagel)

 

October 27 will be one year since the worst anti-Semitic act of violence in the United States: The Pittsburgh shooting at Tree of Life Synagogue OrL’Simcha and two other synagogues in the same building. The shooting left 11 worshippers dead. It has been announced that the synagogue can no longer be a place for worship and has never reopened. However, at Yom Kippur services it was announced that it will reopen as a “center for Jewish life in the United States.”  The statement may be read at:

https://twitter.com/treeoflifepgh/status/1185223170531483649/photo/1

 

Until then services for Tree of Life Synagogue OrL’Simcha will continue to be held at Rodef Shalom’s Levy Hall in the Oakland neighbored of Pittsburgh.

Re: Bad Arolsen Archives #holocaust

Vered Dayan
 

Thank you, Peter Lande, for your frequent updates from the USHMM. I have a question regarding the last paragraph in your latest message about the material that cannot be publicly posted. Since not all of us can visit the museum in the near future, is it possible to know what organizations provided the restricted data? For people who are looking for information about lost relatives, perhaps there is a way to approach them directly and ask for look-ups or help of that sort.
Thanks again,

Re: Polish citizenship #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

While Polish residence may be necessary to obtain the legalized copies of records
necessary for the formal application, that is a final step in the process and research
into the survival and availability of records and eligibility for citizenship are by far the
most important initial steps to be taken.

Where a Polish address is needed, JRI-Poland is pleased to be able to provide that 
service along with research of both our online and offline data for the source of vital
records or other sources that may be acceptable in place of vital records that may
not have survived.  And, as mentioned in my earlier post, we are also able to suggest
companies who provide the application service with reasonable costs.

Searching for Descendants of Karoline (Kranz) Roll or later Heine in Bucharest #romania

Ilana Grallert
 

Hi,
I have hit a wall in my search for descendants of Karoline Kranz who was born in Czernowitz on March 7, 1906. She married Jacob Roll in Czernowitz in 1927. Jacob died  in 1933 and she married Herbert Armin Heine in 1936. Karoline died in Czernowitz in 1987. She had a daughter Erica born in 1928 in Czernowitz who died in 1987 in Bucharest. I believe that there are still children of hers in Bucharest. Erica married  Armand Penchas. I do not speak Romanian and so I am having a hard time searching in Bucharest and in Czernowitz after it became part of Romania and today is Ukrainian. 
I would be grateful for any lead.
