I have the same question as Robert Hanna.
Will the $70 donation extend my current membership or is it only for people who do not have a membership?


Erblich family - New York & Detroit

Neil Rosenstein
 

Trying to make contact with this family and add more to the family
tree. Regina Erblich Meisler was born in Vienna in 1921. She lived
there until 1933 and then in Israel until 1958. She came to New York
and lived there until 1997 when she moved to Detroit.

Her father was an ordained rabbi who was an expert on handwritten
scrolls, such as The Dead Sea Scrolls. He traveled to Iraq to find
more scrolls. Her brother was a world renowned orthodox cantor and her
other brother was an engineer and builder.

Requesting Suggestions

Nina Tobias
 

Hello to All!

My husband's family is HUGE. The tree goes back to his 6x great-grandfather; many of the families in each subsequent generation had ten or more children so this tree has a ton of branches.

The family has decided to self-publish a comprehensive family history. I'm looking for suggestions as to how best organize and illustrate the trees and keep the history straight.  Alternatively, if you've had a disaster in this regard, please let me know what didn't work.

Thanks so much,

Nina Tobias

Hello- I just tried to donate at the “Please click here. .” line below.   I filled in everything to donate with a credit card, but it would not accept my donation- the screen apparently wants me to sign up for a PayPal account, which I do NOT want to do.  Why won’t your screen let me donate with a credit card??  Please let me know.

Thank you.

Re: who are or where is Bialostoker #poland

Arlene G L Baldwin
 

Just checking to see if anyone replied to your question. 

If not, the area the Bialystoker is associated with is the Bialystok region which was part of the Pale of Settlement under Russia.  Since the end of World War II, the Bialystok region is part of Poland. 

Some people coming to the US joined groups (landsman or workmen's circles) of people that came from the same regions. New York had a large population of Jews from the Bialystoker area, including the largest Jewish community of Bialystok.  Lots of club and synagogue activities.

Although some records can be found the destruction in that region from WWII was massive.  I hope this helps somewhat in your research. 


Index of Jewish Surnames in Cairo in the 20th Century

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

 

I just published on Avotaynuonline.com   an index of 1,689 surnames of Jewish families

which lived in Cairo during the 20th century with a short introduction about the

 methodology and the sources I used. It is certainly NOT a complete list and if I missed a

surname you know please please let me know. We can improve it only with your help. Here

 is the link

Chevre B'nai Abraham Samuel Anshei Ashisker

Laurie
 

Hello group,
My great great grandfather Josef Duchowny was buried in 1896 in a plot
at Washington Cemetery in Brooklyn owned by the Mutual Benevolent
Society of Chevre B'nai Abraham Samuel Anshei Ashisker of Manhattan. I
found a listing for them on the Ackman and Ziff Institute website
which indicates that this burial society was attached to a
congregation for immigrants from Eisiskes, Lithuania. I have two
questions for you all about Chevre B'nai Abraham Samuel Anshei
Ashisker.

1. Does anyone have any information about this congregation?

2. I am new to researching burial societies and landsmanshaftn, so
please forgive my simplistic question. My question is, did all people
buried in plots owned by organizations like these come from the town
they were associated with? In other words, can I assume from this that
my great great grandfather came from Eisiskes?

Thank you all so much!
Laurie Duchowny


If You Need More on the Outlandish USCIS Fee Hikes See The Legal Genealogist's Posting

Jan Meisels Allen
 

I have as have others posted about the outlandish proposed fee increases by USCIS for the immigration records we would as genealogists want for our ancestors and other family members. Judy Russell, The Legal Genealogist, wrote in today’s post about this and debunked some of the myths. If you still have questions or don’t think this is important please read her posting at: https://www.legalgenealogist.com/2019/12/02/fight-the-fee-hikes/

Do send copies of your comments to your US Senators and Representative. And do read and sign-up for the coalition which is fighting this: https://www.recordsnotrevenue.com/

This is not the time to sit back and let others do this –we need everyone to respond. Only with a massive comment avalanche will we have a chance to get this overturned.

Re: Amazon Donations for JewishGen

Madeleine Sann
 

I am ashamed to say how much we spend on Amazon purchases a month. The charity I designated has, over perhaps 3 years of our spending thousands upon thousands of dollars (442 orders), reaped a little over $100. It’s a good idea to designate a charity but the actual money generated is discouraging. If you use the mobile app, it will not generate anything. You have to go through the smile.amazon.com site - which we do.

Well Avrami you sure make it hard to do things.  I tried to make a donation using a credit card but your form tried to force me to sign up for PayPal.  Sorry but I don’t like that.  Why ‘make’ donors do things that they object to.  It’s a real turn-off.

Dear Avraham,
I tried to use the donate link using my credit card, and after I fill in the whole thing, it won't work unless I sign in to or create a PayPal account.
I am not interested in doing this.  I used to be able to just use my credit card to donate to Jewish Gen.  Can you help me with this?

Thank you.

Formation of email group about Isle of Man Internment #unitedkingdom

Tony Hausner
 

Several of us have recently activated an email group about Internment on the
Isle of Man. This is primarily during World War II but also applies to World
War I since internment by the British occurred then as well.
In my case, my parents and other family members, all of whom were Jewish,
escaped >from Vienna shortly after the Anschluss, when the Germans took over
Austria in 1938. Most of my Viennese family members escaped to England.
However, a year later most of them were labeled by their local boards as
"enemy aliens' and spent as much as a year in separate camps on the Isle of
Man.

To join our group, please send an email to me at thausner@...
