I have a document in Hebrew that I would really appreciate someone
translating. It is one large page, very neatly written. I am unable to
reduce its size to 1MB, in order to upload it to Viewmate, without
rendering it illegible, but I can send it to any one willing to give a
1.57 MB .jpg a try.

Thanks in advance!

Celia Male #austria-czech

pweisberger@...
 

I'd like to echo everyone's sentiments regarding Celia Male.

In May 2008, learning that a few of the ITS-Bad Arolsen Trip researchers
would also be coming to Vienna, she arranged to be there herself and planned a dinner for over 30 other
genealogical researchers who came >from all over Europe to join us in an evening of socializing and
exchanging information.

She also met me at the archives in the Gasometer and helped me perform the simplest tasks (figuring out
the lockers!) to the complex (ordering records, how to look in the microfilm drawers, finding unusual
sources, analyzing info, etc.) Fortunately, I was able to videotape her guiding me, so that others could
benefit when I incorporated these clips in a presentation about the value of conducting research in Vienna.
She offered practical, no-nonsense, and expert, advice that made my research expand by light-years. I
doubt I could have accomplished much of what I did on that trip without her assistance.

Celia epitomizes the random acts of genealogical kindness that we all aspire to give and receive, except
she performs these on such a regular basis, they can hardly be called "random," but, more appropriately,
"constant."

So hats off to Celia...and best wishes for her speedy recovery!

Update on Celia. #austria-czech

celiamale@...
 

Hi,
this is Simon, Celia's son. She is making good progress, and is talking
and laughing. Her recovery process, however, will be a long one, and
she will not be back at a computer for a month at the very least.
She
has been lifted enormously by everyone's messages and support, so
please do keep sending them, and we will do our best to ensure that she
sees them all. If you wish to send her something more traditional than
an electronic message, she is at Mayday University Hospital, 530 London
Road, Croydon, CR7 7YE, ward Heathfield 1.

Best wishes to all, Simon.

From Kishineff to Bialystok: A Table of Pogroms 1903-1906 #belarus

steve725@...
 

The Museum of Family History would like to announce the presence on its site
of an important report and a table of pogroms committed between 1903 and
1906. This table is important for Belarus researchers as it gives
information on five pogroms that occurred within the Minsk region during
this period, three in Minsk itself, one in Pinsk and one in Daragonovo.
There may have been pogroms before and after this period within this region,
but I haven't any information on them.

First, you will be able to read over the introduction and commentary to all
of this as published by the American Jewish Committee in their American
Jewish Year Book, Volume 8 (1906-1907).

Secondly, you will be able to peruse a table of more than two hundred and
fifty towns and cities in Europe where pogroms occurred. Within this table
is a listing of the damage caused in these locations (when available), as
well as some general remarks made about each pogrom. You will also find for
each pogrom event listed, the date of occurrence, the name of the town or
city, the gubernia, the overall population of the location and the Jewish
population, though numbers are not given for every town or city. There is
also a supplemental table of pogroms in other locations in November 1905 not
included in this larger table.

To make your town search easier, there is also a table that lists
alphabetically all the locations with a reference made with each to the
entry number in the large table. There is also a table that lists the
gubernias in which pogroms occurred, and their overall and Jewish
populations.

Most interestingly, though thoroughly depressing, is the Report of the Duma
Commission of the Bialystok Massacre that occurred in June 1906. A goodly
report is presented to you here as it reviews in detail many incidents that
occurred during the pogrom, especially to the Jewish population. Those of
you who might have had families that lived in Bialystok may wish to read the
report thoroughly to see if any family names are mentioned. For those of you
who have an interest in a particular town, this report and its included
tables are for you.

Lastly, the debates that occurred in the Duma as the report was being
presented is interesting to read too. You can also read of the resolutions
proposed and passed within the U. S. Congress >from 1905-1906.

It should be mentioned that all this is being presented to you at the Museum
courtesy of the American Jewish Committee Archives.

All of the aforementioned information can be found at

Hi Siggers

Is there sks who is possibly going to Jhb cemetry and can take a photo
of a tombstone. I have an image which has very kindly been sent to me
but it is missing the Hebrew text - which I need for the Hebrew name.

The tombstone is for Chone Meyer Kramer, number 5324. He died in Dec. 1960.

If possible also
Isaac Katz number BB1511 who died in May 1958
5154 - Hermie Evans who died in June 1960

Many thanks
