travel papers #usa #israel

rlipitz@...
 

In July 1903, according to copy of Ellis Island ship manifest, my 18 year old Grandmother (Fanny Shore) along with her father and younger sister, left Jaffa, Palestine via ship our of La Havre,  France.  What I am researching is to find any travel papers they might have needed for this journey.  Some information I have is that she was born in either Jaffa or Libau, Latvia.  According to research done with Israel, these documents, if available, might be in Ottoman Turkish.


Any help along these lines would be most appreciated.


Sincerely,

Roberta

The first link - " Do You Speak BRCA" doesn't work.  If you copy the text from Jan's letter, (or from the blog) you get switched to a promo page for buying a kit.
You can to get to the "do youi speak" page  by clicking  on the link at the end of the blog post:

Hi
I have two questions.
My Maternal grandparents were married both a First Time with other People before the war. They had both kids. Two sons for my grandfather and two girls for My grandmother. I have the Name of My grandmother’s first husband but Nothing for My grandfather’s first family except a photo of his first wedding (the bride and him on thé photo).
Is it possible to find something about all those first families who died during the Shoah (husband, wife, Kids) knowing that the different acts of wedding are certainly less than 100 years.
If someone could help me to find all those persons, please
Thank you

The names I know:
- my grandmother Sack (König) Esther Chuve (Elsa) born in Schodnica, Poland (Ukraine) in 1905 married First Time with apparently Kleinberg Oskar

- my grandfather Ernst Jozef Friedman born in Horodichsche, Poland (Ukraine) sept 15, 1904. Don’t know his first wife’s Name.

This June 23, 2019 photo shows tourists visiting the Chernivtsi Museum of the History and Culture of Bukovinian Jews, in Chernivtsi, Ukraine. Descendants of the region of Bukovina's Jews are trying to make their history known and appreciated. One crowning effort was the opening, a few years ago, of a tiny museum of Jewish culture that is filled with artifacts, photos, and other documentation. (AP Photo/Frances D'Emilio)

 

The Associated Press has an article on Chernivtsi, in the heart of Bukovina. Bukovina spans both the Ukraine and Romania. Its Jewish population was exterminated for all intents and purposes during World War ll, but there are remnants.

 

The article talks of the story’s author visit to Cernivitsi. The article includes several photos including several from the Jewish cemetery.

Fate/Source of BMD Records for Tysmenitsa #galicia

Yaron Wolfsthal
 

Dear Group,

Tysmenitsa is a small town, just near Stanislawow (less than 15
kilometers apart). I know of no vital record books for this town (where,
I know, there were roots of my family).

In consulting with colleagues, I learned that those records are
considered lost, possibly during the 1939 town capture by the Red
Army. But, thinking about it, I started thinking that the B/M/D events
of Tysmenitsa may have been recorded in Stanislawow. And if that
was the case, perhaps the Stanislawow books would be the place to
look for Tysmenitsa B/M/D events.

Insights appreciated on this theory.

Address Books for Stanislawow #galicia

Yaron Wolfsthal
 

Dear Group,

I am looking for address books ("ksiega adresowa") for Stanislawow,
both pre-WW1 and interwar.

The one book I found is 1935-1936. Other than that, the Stanislawow
books seem far harder to find than those of other towns (eg Lwow,
Krakow).

Here and there, I managed to find single page(s) >from some books,
but no more.

Any advice about the availability and whereabouts of these books (in
digital form) will be highly appreciated.

Thank you.

It is with a sense of deep sadness I report the death of Freya Blitstein Maslov, long time coordinator of Ukraine SIG and a moderator of this Discussion Group right up to her death. She died Tuesday afternoon after a long illness. Freya was a Past President of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois and a board member of IAJGS for several years. She was one of the original organizers of the Ukraine Special Interest Group in 1995, and became coordinator of the SIG. As her health declined, she gave up most of her other duties, but continued on as a moderator.

She will be laid to rest at 1:30, Friday afternoon, October 11, at Westlawn Cemetery in Norridge, IL An online obituary will be posted in the Chicago Sun-Times when all of the arrangements are complete. Her family has requested donations be made in her memory to Hadassah Chicago, North Shore.

May her memory be for a blessing.

Re: Czernowitz records #romania

Hi Edgar,
Good to hear >from you.
My mother's surname was Wariten or it may have been spelled Veretena
in Czernowitz. I found a man by the name of Mehel Veretena in the 1936
commercial directory that you posted long ago. The names seem very
untypical of Jews at that time and I have not found anything similar
anywhere (except the record of my mother and sister's stay at
Landsberg am Lech DP camp after the war.
Warmest regards,

Shana Tova!

I have been looking at the Metrical Books of the Czernowitz Jewish
community through the Family Search site.

My late mother Rosa was born in Czernowitz on December 31, 1920, but
there is no record of the birth on the relevant pages of birth
records. Could anyone with experience of these records advise me why
this might be? I am certain about the date. Could it be that some
families did not record births for some reason? Are there other
sources for births in Czernowitz during those years? I'm also looking
for marriage and birth records in Czernowitz in the 1930s.

Many thanks.

Zev Cohen

Craiova Jewish Cemetery Register #romania

Sam Wolff
 

After a significant delay, I report that the Craiova Jewish Cemetery
registry will be submitted to JOWBR within a month or so. It consists
of 2449 names. Photographs will be added at a later stage.
I do have some questions, however, based on what is written in the
registry. Can anybody tell me what E.B. signifies? Under personal
names, why is it that often there is a female name AND a male name
(like Aron Mathilda, for example). Maybe the first name represents the
deceased and the second the spouse's name? Also related to personal
name, what is the significance of the letter that often precedes the
name, like B. Reina, I. Sura, A. Iacob, M. Debora, E. Rebeca, D.
Avram? Feel free to respond off-list.
With thanks and best wishes for the New Year. G'mar hatima tova!
