question on "U.B." addenda to Hungarian vital records #hungary

larrybassist@...
 

Dear H-Siggers,
I recently posted a translation request in Viewmate for a vital record in Budapest. The gracious reply included this statement regarding items in the last column that started with "U.B" followed by some numbers that appear to be an entry number and year:

"The addendum number doesn't correspond with anything in the actual register -- the
re were separate booklets for recording addenda."

So, my question for all of you is: Are the mentioned "separate booklets" available
anywhere for examination? Have they been microfilmed or scanned?

This question does not only pertain to Budapest since I have seen the U.B. notation
in records >from all over Hungary.

If anyone knows anything about them it would be very helpful for most researchers.

Thanks,
Larry Bassist

Moderator: It will be easier to provide advice if you can identify the type of
record this is and the date.

SITE CITE- "UNION - Blaetter der Emigration" Digitized and on the Web [Shoah refugees in South Africa] #germany

David Lewin
 

Parallel to the "Aufbau" publication in England and the USA, "UNION -
Blaetter der Emigration" was published in South Africa under the
editorship of Dr H.O. Simon between 1939 and 1948. It is a depiction
of the life of those Jews who managed to escape Nazi Germany and who
began life anew in the South African refuge.

I am delighted to be able to report that I have finally managed
it! It can be reached from

http://remember.org/unite/union/union_index.html

where I have more of the background of this publication and directly at

http://remember.org/unite/union/Union_Blaetter_OCR_Prepare_Dec_2017_1_1153.pdf

Where only possible the text is fully searchable

The file is LARGE! and will take a little while to download. I am
still hoping that someone can teach me how to improve that. I am
equally hoping that rather than be mounted on the Search and Unite
site, it will find a home on a more suitable server where the history
of German Jewish refugees >from Nazi Germany is centered.

The quality of the microfilm which I worked >from was relatively
poor. It took a great deal of coaxing my ABBYY FineReader 12
software to produce the outcome - but now, after two-and-a-half years
it is finally done.

I see the site also as a memorial to those who brought UNION to the
public and will welcome any comments, additions and corrections of
the data I have assembled.

There is a paper version UNION is available at the Deutsche National
Bibliothek and the post-war only issued at the South African National Library.

Be well, have a healthy 2018,

David Lewin, London david@lewinsdlondon.org.uk

Aglasterhausen Children's Home, Germany #hungary

Alex Magocsi
 

Recently Uncle Joe passed away. He was a survivor of Auschwitz and was a resident of the above referenced Home. This home was also known as the
Aglasterhausen Home for Orphaned and Unaccompanied Children and was in operation as a displaced personâ??s (DP) camp >from early 1946 to late 1948.

As a way to remember Uncle Joe, I decided to research Aglasterhausen and stumbled upon two photographs at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum of some of the â??childrenâ?? >from the home and, as a nice surprise, Uncle Joe is shown in one. The two photographs were donated by a private person.

I have scratched the internet quite a bit in my search for information, especially photos, regarding this Childrenâ??s Home, searching both the USHMM and the digital collections of the International Tracing Service (ITS Arolsen).

I am writing today to see if any of the readers of these lists have any photographs >from the referenced Childrenâ??s Home.
I suspect that there are photographs in private hands and I suspect there are others who may be interested in seeing such photos.

Thank you

JGSGW January 7,2018 Meeting Announcement - My Family History Blog: A Multi-Purpose Tool #general

N. Kotz
 

The Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington will host the
following program on Sunday, January 7, 2018, at Bnai Israel
Congregation, 6301 Montrose Rd, Rockville, MD 20852

Event: My Family History Blog: A Multi-Purpose Tool
Speaker: Mary-Jane Roth Date: January 7, 2018 Time: 1:00 PM

What is a BLOG? Why might I want to write one? How might it help me in my
research? JGSGW VP-Programs, Mary-Jane Roth, will discuss the basics of Blogging
and how it can become another tool for the researcher. Mary-Jane started her blog,
Memory Keeper's Notebook when she was looking for a way to interest the younger
members of her family in the people and stories of the generations who she knew
growing up. She wanted to share more than just their names and dates, but also to
give these cousins some idea of who their ancestors were as people. As she worked,
posting photos and stories, she realized that the process of writing the blog was
also helping her improve her research, and connecting her with family far and wide.
In her presentation, she will review how to start your own blog, and reveal
how her own family history has been enriched in the process.

Mary-Jane began understanding her family history sitting at holiday tables
listening to four generations of relatives play Jewish Geography telling stories
about family members and arguing about who had the story right. She started more
than twenty years ago building family trees and checking them with the older
generations. She hasdone serious research for more than fifteen years, spreading
the branches of her tree far and wide looking for clues to solve some of
the mysteries she uncovered

JGSGW Guest Attendance Policy
A non-member may attend the monthly JGSGW meeting as a Guest for a $5.00 fee
payable at the sign-in table. The $5.00 Guest fee may be applied toward payment of
annual JGSGW membership dues if dues are paid at the same meeting at which the
guest fee was paid. JGSGW members requiring personal assistance at a meeting due
to a health condition or disability may bring someone to assist them free of
charge. Learn more about JGSGW membership at

(Poland) Polish Government Donates Equivalent of $28 Million To Help Restore Major Warsaw Jewish Cemetery #warsaw #poland

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Polish government donated 100 million zlotys equivalent to $28 million
USD to restore and protect the Jewish Cemetery on Okopowa Street in Warsaw.
This is one of the largest government donations toward preserving the
Jewish culture which was virtually wiped-out during the Shoah.

The Okopowa Street Jewish Cemetery has 250,000 graves of Polish Jews. It
was established in 1806 and has many notables buried there. Many sections
of the cemetery have broken tombstones, and unreadable inscriptions. The
Cultural Heritage Foundation, which preserves Polish heritage sites, will
oversee the preservation work at the cemetery. The donation established an
endowment which is to cover cleaning the cemetery, preserving its tombstones
and monuments and reinforcing an outer wall.
