My paternal grandparents, Adolf and Frieda (nee MASUR) STEIN lived in a small town, Kanth, now Katy Wroclawski, along the railway line , 12 miles SW of Breslau, now called Wroclaw.  They were murdered in April 1942 in Izbica ghetto, presumably on the way to a conentration camp.

Which level of local council one should approach, the municipality or the regional ? 

There were 4 Jewish families in this small  town.  I have contact details for the granddaughter in London of Dr And Mrs HEIDENFELD.  There were two other families, the JUNGMANNS  and a family who owned a shoe shop.  Any suggestions for searching for their families?

Family Names in Messages (was #digest)

Peter Lebensold
 

Agreed!  Having all family names (and nothing else) in all caps makes it so much easier to quickly scan messages for names of interest.

What would also be helpful would be if those who post images for translation, or links to ViewMate postings, would be sure to include the family names of those to whom the images refer.  Otherwise, we have to open each ViewMate posting to see if, perhaps, one of "our" names is referenced.

(US) Senator Mitch Romney Sends Letter to USCJS Objecting to The Outrageous Proposed Fee Increase

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) sent a letter on December 10 to the Department of Homeland Security asking them to explain the proposed changes that would result in a significant increase in the cost of searching and requesting copies of the genealogical records from the Unites States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS). 

 

The letter sent to Chad Wolf, the acting Homeland Security secretary, and Kenneth Cuccinelli, the acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, the Senator asks for additional information on the budgets and expenses of the USCIS Genealogy Program and questions the rationale behind raising search fees from $65 to $240 and records fees from $65 to $385. He asks for replies by December 18 to four questions. Senator Romney noted in the letter, “a family historian would need to pay $625 to search and obtain a single file on a relative.”  He further commented, “I am concerned that drastically raising the Genealogy Program’s fees would harm genealogists across the United States without addressing your budgetary concerns.”

We need an avalanche of response to hope to defeat this proposal.

Can someone make it out?

A thousand thanks,

Re: Kalonymus

Hi Gershon,

Thanks so much for your email....I was hoping that your would write. I don't have access to my computer but I think that I have this right. My great-great-grandfather born in 1790 was Kalmon Kalmamowitz. His grandson (my dad's uncle) was also Kalmon Kalmamowitz. In addition, my uncle was named Kalmon Kalmamowitz (and subsequently changed his name to Calvin Calmon.

We are somehow related to the famous Rabbi Abraham Kalmamowitz, but I haven't been able to figure it out yet.

There are also several sons named Samuel among my ancestors.

Where was your family from?

Best regards,

Karen Calmon Lukeman

Hello,

I assume that your surname Kalmanowitz is thanks to the fact that another patriarch (higher up the tree), was also a Kalman. This could mean that Kalman Kalmanowitz was one of more (or many?) Kalmans in your family.

The patriarch of my family, as far as I could go back, was Kalman Kalmamowitz in Lyubcha Russia (later Poland and now Belarus)...near minsj and Vilna. There have been several Kalman Kalmamowitz's since, one being my uncle who changed his name to Calvin Calmon prior to going to Dartmouth College, probably to anglicize his name. My tree is on Geni (but started it on My Heritage). I did the 23andme and FTDNA DNA tests, and uploaded my data to Gedmatch and MyHeritage. My sister Nadine did the Ancestry  DNA test.

Hi,

Before the main@... was initiated, it was expected to write family SURNAMES in CAPITALS.

At least one of the genners has remarked that most people no longer put SURNAMES in CAPITALS.

I personally would appreciate it if  genners would put SURNAMES in CAPITALS!

Thanks!

There was a question on how to and where to send your comments. 

Go to website, recordsnotrevenue.com. This is the website of genealogists, historians and archivists with all the information you need.  In "make your voice heard" portion, they have a link to the government portal where you type in your comment. It also has the snail mail address if you prefer to send your comments that way.

The deadline for submission is now december 30.

The issue of the security certifcate for the entire regulations.gov website has been solved, so everyone can submit directly on the government  site.

Remember to send copies of your comments to your US Senators and Representatives. The recordsnotrevenue website has the links for you to find out your Congressional reps.

If you need more information, there have been numerous postings on this subject, go to the jewishgen archives.

I apologize for not being able to provide more information on this with direct urls.  I am not home with access to my computer and using my phone to reply.

Re: Kalonymus

Judi Gyory Missel
 

My 3x great grandfather was Kalonymous Tzvi. He was born in 1793 in what is now Slovakia. However when he lived in Galgocz,  it was part of Hungary in the early 1800's. The Hungarians seem to have regularly used multiple names depending on the purpose - civil, government, or religious. So my Kalonymous Tzvi was also known as Kalman and Salamon.

The December Issue of the Galitzianer

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

We are delighted to announce the release of the December 2019 issue of the Galitzianer, the quarterly research journal of Gesher Galicia.

Spanning centuries, this issue is a smorgasbord of history, politics, and family narratives--and it raises a host of interesting questions. How will a new Polish regulation complicating access to records impact Jewish genealogical research? What can we learn about the Jewish community in Galicia from the first Galician census? How did universal male suffrage impact Jewish political representation during the Habsburg Monarchy? How do you uncover your family’s past when the surviving relative doesn't want to talk about it? What should you consider before interviewing a Holocaust survivor?

The December issue of the journal raises these and other questions through the following articles:
  • "Research Corner: Successes and Hurdles" by Mark Jacobson
  • "The First Habsburg Census" by Andrew Zalewski
  • "Jewish Deputies from Galicia" by Börries Kuzmany
  • "Looking for My Parents" by Reuven Liebes
  • "My Grandmother’s Kitchen” by Peter Bein
  •  “Map Corner: 1850 Cadastral Map of Gorlice” by Jay Osborn
  •  “A Day with Murray” by Barbara Krasner
  •  “Membership News” by Shelley Kellerman Pollero
The Galitzianer is a membership benefit of Gesher Galicia, though anyone is invited to submit articles on Galicia-related themes. For membership information, visit our website at www.geshergalicia.org/membership/. For details on submitting an article, review our submissions policy at www.geshergalicia.org/the-galitzianer/#submissions, or contact me at submissions@....
