I have searched for the WAINER / WAJNER family
from Belozerka, Ukraine with little success.
I have been told that this is a common name
in that region - any help would be appreciated.

Jews in the Polish Army 1919-1939 #poland

Shalom to the Discussion Group

During my research into my wife's TUCHSCHNEIDER family in Sosnowiec,
I have come across a number of photographs of family members in
Polish Army uniforms during the 1920s.

Can anyone tell me where I can find a good source of information about
the service of Jews in the army immediately after the Great War:
When did conscription start, >from what age, length of service,
were Jews in all corps and brigades, conditions of service,
reserve duty, etc. ?

Secondly, is there an accessible online source where I can identify
uniforms and cab-badges?

Thirdly, what is the likelihood of finding individual military records
for non-officer military personnel in the regional archives?

With sincere thanks for any information, and good wishes >from a
sweltering Israel.

Searching: RIEGER from Kolomea, HACKER from Nuremberg #general

Isabelle Roche <isarochecomet@...>
 

Hello,

I'm looking for information on my paternal ancestry.

My great-grandfather's name is Joachim RIEGER.
He was born in Kolomea in 1893.
My great-grandmother's name is Marthe HACKER.
She was born in Nuremberg in 1902.
My grandfather was Leon RIEGER. He's one of the many
victims of the Shoah. He died the Majdanek camp in march 1943.

His brother Serge is still alive.
Part of their family managed to escape to England (Georges RIEGER)
and USA (Max RIEGER). And perhaps after war to Israel.

We have no photos about them and about Leon.

My grand father family lived in Nuremberg until 1926, then in
Strasbourg (France) until 1939, near Limoges during the war
and then in Paris.

Thank you for your help in this sensitive research.

Sincerely,
Isabelle Roche
(Le Bouscat, near Bordeaux, France).

Seeking information on name/ancestor of WOLFSTONE and/or WARSUPSKI from Vilna #general

Hi,

My name is John WOLFSTONE. My great-grandfather Hyman WOLFSTONE
was born in Vilna around 1901, and immigrated to the US, we have
no (yet) record of this.

The name WOLFSTONE was created along the way of immigration.
Family lore says the name may have been WARSUPSKI, but that's unclear.

I've looked online and can find no record of either name in Vilna.
Help! I want to find who Hyman and his family really were.
I've found a record online that says his father was Abraham and
his grandfather, Leon, all >from Vilna, but no other information
(including a real last name).
I am at a loss at how to proceed.

Thank you.

The recent posting on the Obertyn cemetery was really painful to learn

Seeking information on PILNICK family arrival to UK and origin #unitedkingdom

John Trautwein <j.wolfstone@...>
 

Hi,

My great-grandfather Abram Pilnick (later Pilling) was born in Russia
(approx. 1893) and is listed on the Leeds, UK census in 1901 and 1911
along with his parents, listed as Max/Marks Pilnick (father) and Annie
Pilnick (Mother). Morris, his older brother, also born in Russia,
around 1890, and a little brother, Percy, born in 1900/1901 in Leeds.

I've had little luck discovering their place of origin in Russia, or
any info on when exactly they arrived to the UK.

As his younger Brother, Percy was born in Leeds, England, while his
older brother, my Great-Grandfather, Abram, was born in Russia in
1893, I therefore know that they arrived between 1893 and 1900/1901 to
the UK.

Any information or ideas would be appreciated!

Thank you,

1916-1921 Lodz Registration Card Project is now complete. 230,000 entries added to JRI-Poland. #warsaw #poland

Margalit Ashira Ir
 

Dear fellow researchers:

More than three years ago we embarked on a project to extract and
create a database of the Jewish entries in the huge collection of Lodz
Registration Cards >from 1916 to 1921.
https://jri-poland.org/psa/lodz-registration-card-scans.htm

Like any large initiative, it was difficult to initially grasp the
depth of this project and the time it might take to complete. But we
soon learned that there are more than 262 thousand cards to be
reviewed and, of course, knew that a large percentage would be for
Jewish families. It was clear that to carry out this project would
require many years of engaging with and retaining volunteers.

We soon were able to assemble what turned out to be a dedicated team
of our fellow genealogists who took this project to heart. They
realized that the information in these cards would open vital research
opportunities with the potential for dramatic breakthroughs.

Our volunteers reviewed each card to identify the Jewish families and
then extract the key genealogical information - surnames, given names,
parents=E2=80=99 names, towns of birth, birth date, occupation, marital
status, date of arrival in Lodz, and in some cases, dates of death.

While we had a core group who drove the project forward, along the way
we were joined by dozens of other volunteers doing their share. It
was truly an international group representing the U.S. Israel, Canada,
Spain, France, Belgium, Russia and Argentina. We also had a
Kenya-based company, Digital Divide, volunteer the time of one of
their expert employees.

Some volunteers were with us >from beginning to end, others offered
their help in between business hours, care giving or simply involved
in their families=E2=80=99 day-to-day lives. Each day I could visualize th=
eir
activity on this project, the hours at their computers, diligently
reading through and documenting the names of our Jewish brethren.
Their devotion was a heartwarming example of the power of a united
force carrying out a unique mission. In this case ensuring that all
Jewish names in this collection became new stars in the heavens, their
memory forever ingrained on the web for future generations of their
families to find and treasure.

In fact, I have heard >from countless researchers who have found family
members, often learning about cousins and even entire branches they
never knew existed.

I would also like to extend a special and heartfelt thanks to
JRI-Poland super volunteer Howard Fink who has played such a vital
role in processing the data and preparing it to be uploaded to the
JRI-Poland database.

The Lodz Registration Card Project is now complete and the data is
online. Along the way, we reviewed 262,000 cards and identified more
than 230,000 Jewish individuals. They are now forever part of the
database of Jewish Records of Poland, available for all to find.

As the leader of the Lodz Registration Card 1916-1921 Extraction
Project, I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to bring this
mission to fruition and once again express my heartfelt thanks to the
volunteers who made this long journey a success. Yasher Koach to each
and every one of the volunteers.

Shabbat Shalom,
