three Viewmate records from Jezow, Poland #general

Deborah Long <debbietheteacher@...>
 

I would appreciate help with three vital records >from my ancestral
shtetl of Jezow, Poland (near Lodz).

I do not need complete translations.

On this file,

I need to know the name of the Fayga Chonych's father, if it is mentioned.

On this file,

I need to know the parents' names of Jenta Chonych.

On the third file,
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM38735
I know that the groom is Icek Majer Galas and the bride is Dworja Chonek. I am
interested in the name of the groom's MOTHER. I believe her first name is Blima
Golda but I have seen variants such as SAD, SADLOW, and SALT. What do you think
the last name is?

I always am grateful for help.

JewishGen burial record and Lansmanshaft info #general

April Stone <texastones@...>
 

Hello,

On the JewishGen burial record there is a section that has Landsmanshaft
info. This has the Town and Country of origin and in the case of my
Grandmother Anne FURHMAN WARADY it has Kedainiai, Lithuania. I have from
the passenger list that last residence was Schaulen (Siauliai) Lithuania.
These towns are 58 miles apart. Would the Town and Country of origin refer
to the society or to my grandmother town of origin?

This plot was purchased as a large group of plots. I was wondering if
anyone can tell me how do I find out about the society and location and
access to the records. I have already received the grave information on the
grave site just for my Grandmother >from Waldheim Cemetery but not the deed
as it is for a large group and there are privacy concerns and the Cemetery
will not provide it. The cemetery information is Waldheim Cemetery Kadaner
Unt. Verein, Gate #233.

Thank you,

April Stone

WW1 prisoners of war #galicia

Eli Brauner
 

I find it important to share this site that contain data on WW1 war
prisoners.

During the war 10 million soldiers >from all sides were captured.

You can look for prisoners of the Austro Hungarian army too. The
importance for our family research goes without saying.

BJF- Jewish soldiers in ww1 #austria-czech

Eli Brauner
 

Friends,
I'm looking for a book published by Bund juedischer Frontsoldaten
Oesterreichs (BJF).
The BJF was founded in 1919 in order to stop anti-Semitic propaganda
that Jews have evaded enlistment during WW1.
A far as I know the book is mainly a list of Jewish casualties.
Obviously
it is an important research source.
Please let me know.
