Reclaim The Records publishes the Mississippi state death index (1912-1943) for free public use

Asparagirl
 

Reclaim The Records is excited to introduce the first-ever freely-available publication, online or otherwise, of the Mississippi Statewide Death Index! This record set covers deaths in the state of Mississippi from about November 1912 (although a few counties were slow to join in) through 1943.

Up until, oh, right now, the only place anyone could see or use this index was by visiting the Mississippi Department of Archives and History in Jackson, Mississippi in person, then tediously cranking through the faded and scratched microfilm rolls, or shuffling around microfiche sheets for some of the years. But now it's all scanned and online and free to use from your own home, without restrictions or copyrights, forever!

And we at Reclaim The Records couldn't have done this without teamwork: a dedicated young genealogist named Christopher Smothers who knew about the records and about his rights and reached out to us for help; two generous genealogy non-profits that helped us digitize and host these new materials; and a pool of awesome supporters and donors that enabled our work on this project.

To learn more about the Mississippi state death index, how we got it, and to get the direct link right to the new images, please read our latest newsletter:

Happy searching!

Re: JEWISH FAMILIES IN SOUTH WALES frederick howard hewson #unitedkingdom

dfowler1953@...
 

many thanks one and all for some excellent leads which i would not have found without you.

at the moment, my jewish heritage is speculation based on a direct comment from an elderly, now deceased relative and other bits and pieces.

it has been wisely suggested that i start with a dna test which i am arranging [a black friday deal too] and will go from there.

on some forums my family would seem rather daring, teenage elopements etc [and my grandmother in WW1 not only faced down a hostile mob but went to the warzone in france and brought back my underage uncle] but i am frankly humbled by the stories revealed in your forum and databases.

Searching

Stuart Kaufer
 

I am trying to locate information on Harry Goldstein. He lived in
Chicago. He was born in 1882 but I have no information where he was
born. All I know about him is that he married my Grandmother
Fannie Lebovitz and they had a child Lillian who was born in 1904.
He was her first husband. In 1912 she married my GF Edward Kaufer and
they had a son Ernest, my father. Lillian's name was changed to
Lillian Kaufer in 1920 census records. I do not know if my GF adopted
her. I realize this is sketchy information at best but it is all the
information I have. Thank you.

Subject: [JewishGen.org] Chevre B'nai Abraham Samuel Anshei Ashisker

 

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

Formation of an email group about Isle of Man Internment

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@...

Seminar : Remote Access to the Arolsen Archives

Yvonne Stern
 

Seminar to introduce remote access to the Arolsen Archives -
Researching Nazi Persecution, Forced Labour and Displaced Persons -


Arolsen Archives & NIOD, Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies
29.01.2020-31.01.2020, Amsterdam, NIOD
Deadline: 16.12.2019

The Arolsen Archives - International Center on Nazi Persecution
(formerly the International Tracing Service, ITS) - hold the world's
most comprehensive archive on the victims and survivors of National
Socialism. Part of the institution's mission is to continually improve
access to its collections, which are made up of well over 30 million
documents pertaining to the Holocaust, Nazi concentration camps, forced
labour during World War II, and the registration and care of Displaced
Persons (DPs) in the post-war period. Furthermore, the archive holds
more than three million post-war case files documenting the fates of
individual Nazi victims (mainly correspondence with enquirers). By now,
over 85 per cent of the records have been digitised. Users can access a
growing number of documents (albeit not the collections in their
entirety) in a new online archive that the Arolsen Archives launched in
May 2019. For more information about the institution and its holdings,
please refer to the website of the Arolsen Archives at
www.arolsen-archives.org.

The NIOD, Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies is a
research, knowledge and information centre about war, the Holocaust and
genocide and is part of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and
Sciences (KNAW). Founded on 8 May 1945 with the goal of writing the
history of the Second World War in the Netherlands and in the former
Dutch East Indies, the area of work today covers the 20th and 21th
century. The focus thereby lies on research into the effects of wars,
the Holocaust and other genocides on individuals and society. The
ambition of the NIOD is to make links with war violence visible
elsewhere in the world through independent research with a strong civic
focus and to show that the long-lasting consequences of violence do not
stop at national borders. For more information about the institution and
its holdings, please refer to the website of the NIOD at www.niod.nl.

As part of a broader strategy to enable and improve access to the entire
digital collections, the Arolsen Archives and the NIOD Institute for
War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies are co-organising an international
three-day research seminar for scholars from the Netherlands and
neighbouring countries. The event will take place at the NIOD in
Amsterdam from 29 January through 31 January 2020. At its core, the
seminar will enable participants to carry out their own research in the
digital collections of the Arolsen Archives through a recently
established "remote access" solution. Competent staff on site will
provide guidance in exploring the depths of the digital archive. For
this, participants will have to bring along their personal (portable)
computers. Please note that remote access will only be possible on
devices running Microsoft Windows. Participants will be able to save
selected documents of interest free of charge.

Over the course of the event, there will be room for joint discussions
about the pros and cons of working with the documents in their current
digital environment. Participants are also encouraged to exchange ideas
on both methodological approaches in general as well as their individual
research projects. How can varying scholarly needs - for instance with
regard to research on individual persons, but also larger groups,
places, or specific thematic aspects of Nazi persecution - be met
through the current structure of and search engine navigating the
digital collections of the Arolsen Archives? Where do their limitations
lie? And which future activities in processing the collections (e.g.
through specific metadata indexing) have the potential to enhance
researchers' experience and enable them to engage in innovative methods
and topics?

The seminar will take place at the NIOD in Amsterdam, 29 January through
31 January 2020. The event language will be English. Participants will
arrive in Amsterdam on 28 January 2020.

Interested candidates from The Netherlands and neighbouring countries
are encouraged to send their application via e-mail to
requests-rs@.... Applications should consist of a short
letter of motivation, a brief biographical note, and an overview of the
project for which you intend to explore the digital collections of the
Arolsen Archives (1-2 pages in total). The deadline for applications is
16 December 2019. Participants will be chosen and notified by 20
December 2019.

The organisers will cover the costs of accommodation (three nights at a
hotel in Amsterdam), organise the hotel bookings, and provide two
lunches and two dinners. Participants, on the other hand, will have to
pay for and book their own transportation to and from Amsterdam.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact us at
requests-rs@.... We look forward to many interesting
applications!

The short answer is no. One may not assume every member of a society was from the town or region associated with that society as people may have joined family or friends. That said compatriots from that town or area were typically the majority.
