USCIS Fee Increases--More

Milton Goldsamt
 


I wonder if another avenue might pay off: a number of senators and congressional offices have representatives that deal with ‘Constituent Matters.’ They contact Congress and other federal agencies on behalf of their constituent.  Why shouldn’t we dedicated genealogists, who see USIS as a key source of information, yet probably have fixed income, try to contact those representatives, and stress that the increase in fees is highly onerous, unreasonable and does not reflect any justification for such an increase?  Let’s make them aware of the issue.

I have contacted such representatives for other matters (once when I had to deal with the city of Dallas, as a Maryland resident), and found them to be very friendly, usually versed in the law, and willing to contact various agencies in your behalf.

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page

Bruce Drake
 

“With a heavy heart I walked around the shtetl where a warm Jewish life once pulsed.”

So begins “On the Vestiges of a Disappeared Jewish Life” from the Yizkor book of Czyzew-Osada, Poland. What sets this excerpt apart from others recounting their return to their devastated and unrecognizable hometowns after the Holocaust is the depth of the conversations the writer, Y. Dawidowicz, has with those who witnessed the horrors that befell the Jews of Czyzewo. Some of these were Poles who had been sympathetic to the Jews, including one old man who was threatened by Polish nationalists and, years later, could still barely speak because of the fear that had been struck in him. Another was a socialist who spoke of “Jewish friends whom I will never forget because of their honesty and heartfelt humanity.” After the liberation from the Nazis he then had to witness “the Night of the Long Knives” when leaders of the Polish underground slaughtered Jews who had begun to return. The criminals, he said, were never apprehended.

Dawidowicz encounters an old Christian women who broke down in tears as she remembered the horrible things that had happened, and when he told her not to cry, she said, “One must, one must; terrible things happened here.”

The old stationmaster of the town tells him in a tortured voice: "“We knew that they were being taken to their death and we did nothing but watch, as if they were dogs, not people with whom we had lived together for tens of years…”

In the end, Dawidowicz wrote: “I was tormented by disgust for everything around me and for myself. I had the feeling that I was walking around a terribly contagious filth of crimes and decadence that would not let me buy back [Jewish Czyzewo] at any price.”

Hi Milt,

We have been advocating that when you submit your comments to USCIS on th efee increases you copy your US Senators and Representative. The link to find them has been in earlier postings as well as included on the coalition records not revenues website: https://www.recordsnotrevenue.com/

Whole hardedly agree that the more who get involved the better!

at the time of enumeration, many of those listed are >from other places, such as
Lida, Eishishki, Voronovo and nearby villages. This list ncludes ages,
occupation, and, in many cases, house numbers.

This is the first of a group of new Lida District translations several
others are in the pipeline
and I will be making them available to you in the coming weeks.

While this list is currently accessible only to participants in the

Searching: SMILOVITZ/SMILOVITCH from Polatsk #belarus

Anne SCOTTE <anne.scotte@...>
 

Our grandfather Isaac SMILOVITZ (SMIILOVITCH ?) was born in Polotsk
(Polatsk, Polock) Belarus in december 1888. He emigrated >from Russia
to Paris France in August 1912. We don't know if this was a first step
before going to America but he married with our grandmother a few
months later in Paris and they stayed in France until their deportation
in 1942.
We were told that Isaac lost his mother Slata BAGARIEL and one of his
sisters (firstname unknown) during the great famine. Another version
said they died during a pogrom. We don't know anything about the
father.(Simon SMILOVITZ).
Isaac had one brother and three sisters who emigrated to America.
Chaim (born about 1885). He was a butcher in Saint-Louis.
Bela Rivet (?) born about 1881 spouse Mayeur (?) in Saint-Louis.
Chaya (born about 1892) and Simone (born about 1890) dressmaker.
For Chaya and Simone, we just know the destination America and nothing else.

We never had any contact with this family and would be very very
grateful if anybody could help us. The descendants of Isaac are now
all French.
Thank you very much for your help.

USCIS Fee Increases--More

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Hi

 

It is vitally important to have an avalanche of comments opposing the obscene proposed fees by the United States Citizenship and Information Services (USCIS). There have been previous postings on this forum. It is still not to late to go to the coalition website:

https://www.recordsnotrevenue.com/  to read about it and send in your comments to the USCIS portal online “under make your voice heard”.  The deadline is December 16! Please share with your members to also go to the portal and send in a message. Many comment opposing this is necessary if we have a chance of defeating this.

 

The Washington Post had an article on this today, see: https://www.washingtonpost.com/history/2019/12/05/genealogy-boom-has-hit-roadblock-trump-administration-plans-huge-fee-hikes-immigration-records/

I had better luck reading it on Chrome than Firefox browsers.
