Hello,
I've posted a picture on ViewMate at the following address
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM45576

It was taken at a wedding in Orebro (capital o with umlaut), Sweden in July
1953. The rabbi to the far right is Rav Avraham Israel Jacobson zatzal.
Almost all of the guests were survivors >from nazi camps. But who are/where
they?

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.
Thank you very much.

Hello,

I've uploaded two pictures of survivors who came to Orebro (capital o with
umlaut), Sweden, after WWII.
This picture at http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=45577
is of a woman whose name was said to be Zippora nee Citron. At the beginning
of the 1950s she left for Canada, the US or Israel. Any information about
her will be appreciated.

And this picture at
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=45578 is of a family
called Safran. The man and woman of the family were survivors and their
daughter was born after WWII. At the beginning of the 1950s the whole family
left for Canada or the US. Any information about them will be appreciated.
I found both pictures in my late parent's album.

New York newspapers 1931 #general

bernerfolk
 

I'm trying to flush out an anecdote about the death of a relative but I haven't
found what I hoped for in the newspapers I can access (NYT, genalogoybank.com
and FultonHistory). I have a death index entry (no ctf yet) showing:

Harry KAPLAN
Died 16 April, 1931
1585 East 172nd St (Bronx)
Laundry Worker
Manhattan Death Ctf #10934

The story passed down is that he fell to his death in an elevator shaft someone
had left open. I'd like to find any press coverage of the accident, or an
obituary.

Also, in the 1940 census his widow shows receiving 'non-wage' income. I'm
thinking this could have been a WWI pension benefit? or an insurance settlement?
Any suggestions for tracking down this source of income?

German minority census #austria-czech

henry wellisch
 

According to the latest edition of Nu? What's New? portions of this census
are now available on the internet through the Tracingthepast website, where
it is stated that this census includes the
Germany with in the 1938 borders plus the Sudetenland and also occupied
Austria. I checked the list of cities and areas of this census, which are
available on the Leo Baeck Institute and the Familyhistory websites and
found that indeed there is one microfilm roll for the Sudetenland, but there
is none for Austria. My question is this.
Was this census actually conducted in Austria or was the Austrian part of
the census lost?

Hansi Drohlich #austria-czech

pgbakos@...
 

I am seeking whatever information that exists concerning Johanna (Hansi) Drohlich,
born Wien, 6 May 1899. died in London. She married as her first husband, Hans
Franz Podvinetz. They left Austria at the time of the Anschluss in spite of having
become "Protestants". She entered the UK in 1939 and he was arrested in Paris in
1938 for dealing in false papers. In 1940, he "sold" three paintings to Haberstock,
the art "buyer" of Hitler. He died in 1942, presumably in Paris.

Her father had a clothing company that dealt with the Imperial Court, as far as I know.
She maintained a long correspondence with Rudolf Kolisch the violinist.

Anything else would be gratefully appreciated.

This is over an attempt at restitution of the stolen artwork.

Latest News About IAJGS Annual Conference: Film Festival #austria-czech

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

We are thrilled to announce that Jewish film authority Eric Goldman is
organizing the film festival for the 36th IAJGS International Conference
on Jewish Genealogy to be held at the Seattle Sheraton Hotel >from August
7-12. Goldman is putting together an array of 25 Jewish-themed films
that will be one of the high points of this summer's conference. Goldman
stated it would "offer an amazing look at world Jewry and the various
migrations that have impacted our people through the centuries. There
will be a special focus on immigration to the United States." He is a
noted Jewish film scholar and teacher of cinema at Yeshiva University.

Other highlights of the 2016 conference include the opening night
keynote address by Dr. Devin Naar, chair of the University of Washington
Sephardic Studies Program, and the banquet address by "legal
genealogist" Judy Russell, a Certified Genealogist and Certified
Genealogical Lecturer. There are also planned Alaskan cruises before and
after the conference.

The conference's Early Registration period, which runs until April 30,
offers the lowest fees, with savings of $55 for the full conference. The
conference website, http://www.iajgs2016.org, has complete details on
how to register for all levels of the conference. Once registered, you
can make reservations at the Sheraton Hotel at a reduced rate.

Since we know that there is no way to attend every single session at the
conference, we've made it easy to catch what you may miss - audio files
with slides and Live! are the answer. Live! is a real-time video
streaming service. If you subscribe to Live! you will have access to the
archives on-demand for 90 days after the conference is over! Both can be
subscribed to during the registration process.

If you can't join us in person in Seattle, you can still subscribe to
Seattle 2016 Live! and you can also purchase the audio and slides. Early
registrants to Live! will receive a $70 discount off the August price.

Sign up for the discussion group >from the "about" tab on the conference
website, and the blog >from the link on the right hand side of the page.
