Are you a Survivor from Lodz? #lodz #poland

Roni S. Liebowitz
 

Dear Lodz Survivors,

AllGenerations is now able to accept the Questionnaire from
all Lodz survivors. Responses were requested in stages.
First only Allgeneration members were asked to respond so
that the amount of responses would not be overwhelming at
one time. Now the project is open to other survivors from
Lodz. Please fill out the following and e-mail it to
Allgenerations@.... The questionnaire is at the bottom
of this message. Please first read the message >from Serena
Woolrich, President of Allgenerations.

*** BE SURE TO SEND THIS TO Allgenerations@....


Additional Questions

REMINDER: Questionnaires and Additional Questions are due by
Tuesday, March 17, 2009.
***********************************************************

Dear Everyone in Allgenerations,

Thank you very much for your interest and for submitting a
questionnaire in regard to the LODZ e-Group project.

For the new members of Allgenerations, I would like to tell
you about this project, and if you wish to submit a
Questionnaire (see below), please do so!

This project was undertaken to connect Survivors with other
Survivors >from the same large city to one another (and
perhaps locate a missing family member or friend; or to find
information about someone; or to meet other "lantzmen,"
etc.). This was for Survivors only. The first city was
Lodz, Poland. The project was not for genealogy or research
purposes, family trees, etc. due mainly to time and
manpower (me:-) constraints.

However, due to several requests, we then opened this
project to everyone who wished to submit a Questionnaire
about a Survivor >from Lodz.

As a result, if you are completing the Questionnaire for
someone other than yourself (or have already submitted your
Questionnaire), please complete the "ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS"
below along with the Questionnaire. This way we hope to
avoid any misunderstandings, confusion, etc.

Please send the completed Questionnaire along with the
Additional Questions to me at: allgenerations@... by
Tuesday, March 17, 2009.

When all the Questionnaires are received, I will compile
them into one e-mail and then post it.

If you like this idea, then I will go ahead and do this for
as many other large cities as possible (suggestions are
welcome!).

Your cooperation in this important endeavor is greatly
appreciated!

Project Launched to Translate Additional Revision Lists for Lida District towns #belarus

Jrbaston
 

There is some really exciting news for researchers of towns in the Lida =20
District. We will
now be able to get translations of the Additional Revision Lists for our=20
families >from after
1858 late enough for many researchers to connect to the informati=
on we
already have.

SOME BACKGROUND
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There were ten official Revisions the last one being in
1858. These
were financial censuses
and for those families that were listed, they provide a lot of information.

With support from
Lida District researchers, working through LitvakSIG, we had the 1858 list
translated a decade ago, and followed that with translation of the
1875 Alphabetical List of Jewish Males in the Lida District a few years
later (although this list had only patronymics and no ages.)

Official regulations required that Lida District residents be registered in

one of 12 towns of
registration Belitsy, Eisiskes, Lida town, Nowy Dvor, Orlya, Ostrynia,
Radun, Rozanka,
Shuchin, Vasilishki, Voronovo and Zhalukok. Members of our families may have

lived in
smaller villages but were registered in one of these 12 towns. Eleven of
those 12 towns
are today in Belarus (Eisiskes is in Lithuania) but these Additional
Revision Lists are in
the Lithuanian State Historical Archives in Vilnius, so this project is
under the auspices
of LitvakSIG.

During the Lida District Birds of a Feather meeting in 2008 at the IAJGS
Conference in Chicago,
researchers there showed interest in having LitvakSIG get the Additional
Revision Lists for the
Lida District translated.


WHAT THE LISTS CONTAIN
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For Lida town, the list includes 2,412 lines of individuals, covering the
years of 1858 (additional
to the regular list); 1859; 1860; 1862; 1863; 1864; 1865; 1866; 1867; 1868;

1869; 1870; 1871;
1872; 1873; 1874; 1875; 1876; 1877; 1878; 1879; 1880; 1881; 1882; 1883:
1884; 1885:1886;
1887; 1888; 1889; 1890; 1891; 1893; 1895. There are many listings for 1874
,
but other years vary between several dozen names to just a few.

For Eisiskes, the list includes 1,665 lines of individuals, covering the
years of 1858 (additional
to the regular list): 1859; 1862; 1864; 1868; 1870;1871; 1872; 1873; 1874;
1875; 1878; 1879;
1880; 1881; 1882; 1883; 1884; 1885; 1886; 1887; 1889; 1890; 1891; 1892;
1893; 1894; 1895;
1896; 1898; 1900. The list for 1874 is of significant length, but most
others are much shorter.

A list of surnames found in these two town Additional Revision Lists can
be seen at Lida town:
_http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Lida-District/litvak-lida-names.htm_
(http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Lida-District/litvak-lida-names.htm)

_http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Lida-District/litvak-eis-names.htm_
(http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Lida-District/litvak-eis-names.htm)

For information about the frequency of various surnames in these lists,
please write me privately.

The Additional Revision Lists contain the following information: Surname,
first name, father name, relationship to head of household, gender, age,
age at last revision, reason left, year left,
and additional information. This individual information can include the
spouses of daughters in a
household, conversions to Christianity, conscriptions, and relocations to
other areas,

These files will eventually be in the LitvakSIG All-Lithuania Database
(and under the JewishGen All-Country database approach, in the All-Belarus
Database as well),

GETTING THE REST OF THE LISTS TRANSLATED
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The process of getting these Additional Revision Lists translated is
different >from that used in previous projects. Paper copies of the
1858 and 1875 lists were acquired by LitvakSIG and they were translated
in the USA. We are no longer able to acquire copies of
lists. Now translators work in the archives in Vilnius to create the
translations. This project involves many different years of lists,
and a translator must go through many files to find the lists of the
Jewish community >from a particular town.

For more information about this project, and how you can participate, please
write me privately,

AUSFRESSER birth records (Horodenka) #galicia

Nancy Shaw <n_shaw@...>
 

Hi all - relatively new Genner here. Excited to research my family
roots in Galicia!

I'm wondering if there are issues with the online JRI Poland circa
1880 birth records for Horodenka not being complete. I'm trying to
find the parent names of Max/Mendel, b. 5/12/80, and Gustav
AUSFRESSER, b. 2/12/78. There are fewer AUSFRESSER birth records for
the region online than I would expect, though they say they are fully
indexed.

There is a male Gerschon born to Lieber and Esther Malka in 1878, who
could be my Gus, but no record of a Mendel or any other children born
to this couple.

I'll be trying to locate Gus and Max's death certs in NYC this summer.
In the meantime, is there any way to tell if Gerschon is my Gus?

Thank you!

My father, manufacturer of toys and gifts ["Holzgalanteriewaren"] under the
name Julius Bernet, in Nurnberg Germany, had a representative or import agent
in London UK, the partnership of Oppenheimer and Seckel, in the years 1928 to
the late 1940s

They were listed as his partners in 1938-9 when my father set up a new
company in England, Julius Bernet Ltd.

The Oppenheimer and Seckel office was located on Finsbury [Square/Place?]

One or both was a native of Frankfurt. Does anyone recognize them?

Need Hebrew-English Translation of Cousin's Memoirs Which Include Experiences Fighting with the Bielski Brothers in the Forests of Belarus, Russia #belarus

Miriam Klepper <bubbie04-06@...>
 

My Father's cousin who lives in Netanya, Israel recently sent me a CD of
his Memoirs in Microsoft Word format. He is the last living relative of
my Father's generation who experienced the Holocaust. Although I can
display the 51 page document in Hebrew in Microsoft Word 2002 on my
Windows XP PC, I would appreciate it if someone can translate the text.
I'd be willing to compensate the translator for his her/time.


Cousin Chaim was born in Lida, Belarus, the same town as my Father, and
a segment of the Memoirs deals with how Chaim, his parents, and sister
Raya escaped the first Nazi liquidation of Lida on May 8, 1942, and
ended up living with and fighting with the Bielski brothers in the
forests of Belarus. I was told that they also fought with other
partisans before making their way to Italy, where they got on a boat
headed for Israel as illegals in 1948, and wound up being exiled to
Cyprus by the British.

My late Father, who died in 1965, never spoke to my sister and myself
about the Holocaust, so my cousin's Memoirs would give me some sense of
what happened for the sake of our family's history. It is also important
to have the Memoirs translated as the last generation of living
Holocaust survivors is dying out who were witness to the horrors and
crimes of the Nazis. With all the Historical Revisionism surfacing
across the globe, it is important that documents like these be available
to counter the lies of those anti-Semites. After the document is
translated, I will make copies of the translation and give copies of the
Memoirs to the USS Holocaust Museum, USC Shoah Foundation Institute.
Please contact me privately, if you would like to translate this
important document for me, and tell me what you might charge. Thank you
for your kind attention.
