Jewish cemetery Karmacs, Hungary #general

Traude Triebel
 

The Austrian Jewish Museum http://www.ojm.at has published on its site all
gravestones >from the almost forgotten little cemetery in Karmacs. The cemetery was
discovered coincidentally in 2007 by a friend of the museum. All in all, she
visited the place and took pictures five times until 2018. Unfortunately,
biographical data is sparse. However, the museum wants to make sure that also the
names >from this little cemetery will not be forgotten. Several familiar names are
to be found such as Oesterreicher, Pollak, Rechnitzer, Fuerst, Rosenberg etc. There
is, for example, the grave of Ester Rechnitzer, d. 1855, wife of Abraham
Rechnitzer who was born in 1780 in Rechnitz in (today's) Burgenland.

Yom Ha'Atzmaut 5778
April 19, 2018

Dear JewishGen Family,

In honor of Yom Ha'Atzmaut, and the 70th birthday of the State of Israel,
here are links to a few articles contained in various Yizkor Books that
JewishGen has translated. They contain first-hand accounts of the dreams,
yearnings, desires, and hardships that people experienced to reach the
land of Israel.

(1) Plonsk, Poland: "My Youth in Plonsk" - by David Ben-Gurion.
https://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/plonsk/plo031.html
This article >from the Plonsk, Poland Yizkor Book was written by the first
Prime Minister of Israel, and describes, in great detail, his desire to
embrace the Hebrew language, and to live in Israel >from a young age.

(2) "I Made Aliyah on the Eve of the Holocaust" (scroll down to p. 195) -
by Sarah Yasmin (Schwartzblat).
https://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/rokitnoye/rok179.html
Anyone who has read the Leon Uris book "Exodus" or seen the movie will
recognize this story written by a former resident of Roktyne (which is
included in the Roktyne, Ukraine Yizkor Book). Sarah writes of the
squalid conditions of the decrepit ships, the fears of people who knew
the chances to reach 'Eretz Yisroel' "were dim" and the British efforts
to turn away refugees.

(3) "In the days of the Second Aliyah" - by Rivka Machneimy (Holodenko).
https://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/bender/ben081.html
This article (>from the Bender, Moldova Yizkor Book) was written by the
daughter of Baruch Holodenko (a well-known educator, and delegate to the
Zionist Congress), who made Aliyah at the age of 17, and against the
wishes of her father.

4) ">from Divenishok to Eretz-Israel" (scroll down to page 119) - by
Khenye Harari. https://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/dieveniskes/die087.html
A small article (>from the Divenishok, Lithuania Yizkor Book) which
imparts the joy and anticipation the author felt as she approached Israel.

Wishing you all the best and Chag Sameach,

Phoenix Jewish Genealogy Group May 6th meeting #general

Emily Garber
 

The next meeting of the Phoenix (AZ) Genealogy Group will be held next
Sunday, May 6, starting at 2:00 PM at the Cutler-Plotkin Jewish
Heritage Center, 122 E. Culver St, Phoenix, AZ.

**Please note two changes for this meeting:**
- The start of the meeting is an hour later than usual - at 2 PM
- The location of the meeting is in the cottage at the Cutler-Plotkin Jewish
Heritage Center (AZ Jewish Historical Society campus)

We have made these changes (for this meeting only) to accommodate
those who wish to attend the AZ Jewish Historical Society's Annual
Meeting/Brunch >from 11 AM to 1 PM.

Our speaker will be Ann Marie Williamson, who will present: "Finding
My Father, Finding Myself."

Ann Marie was adopted almost 48 years ago >from a Catholic adoption
agency in Brooklyn, NY. Twenty-four years ago, without the use of DNA,
she found her mother. Unfortunately, her mother gave Ann Marie no
information about her father. With no clues Ann Marie thought she'd
never find him. But recently, after doing DNA testing, she discovered
she is genetically half Ashkenazi Jewish.

Ann Marie will share the ups and downs of her journey and demonstrate
how she used DNA results, along with genealogy research, to trace her
father's family and discover his identity.

I look forward to seeing you next Sunday at 2 PM.

Translations Polish to English, REINSTEIN mother's town #general

Hello Genners,
I've posted 2 REINSTEIN birth records in Polish for which I need
translations. They are on ViewMate at the following addresses ...

https://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM66510
birth of Wigder REINSTEIN 1883

https://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM66509
birth of Lea REINSTEIN 1880

In both I'm trying to determine the correct town name, and therefore its'
location of: Malke PELLER, mother of both Wigder and Lea.
JRI-Poland extraction says Pohorlowka, but I cannot locate it in the town
finder or communities database. The father's (Chune REINSTEIN) town is
Kudrynce. I would also appreciate all other details possible-full registration and
birth date, other names and/or locations.

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

It has been 11 years since I last revised the Lyubar (Ukraine) KehilaLinks
website on JewishGen, but I hope you will take a look now to see all of the
new material and developments. There are some very interesting things going
on as you will read on the homepage under NEWS! Go to
https://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/Lyubar/index.html .

Reload each page of the site to see the current version. The colors are now
navy blue, olive green and white. If you are viewing the site in orange or
light green, then you need to reload.
