GALLER surname originally from Pomerania area in Poland #general

Angelina Bowen <angiebowen0423@...>
 

Hello, I am currently in Warsaw, Poland. I am driving to
Darlowo and Gdansk in the next few days. I am trying to find
relatives. My father's great great grandfather was Daniel
Gottlieb GALLER. His father was Hermann Galler. Daniel
married Wilhelmina. We recently discovered that we have
Jewish ancestry. We always thought we were Germans, but now
know that we are German Jews. Some of our relatives died at
Auschwitz. I would very much like to connect with family here
in Poland. I am also going to Potsdam in Germany, but I
believe my true relatives live in the area of Pomerania. At
least they did in the 1800's before coming to the U.S. Please
help me if you have any information. Thank you.

Private document translation - German #general

Sharon Gill
 

My great aunt, who was Czech, married a non-jewish Austrian.
Her husband died in 1936.

In 1938 she registered to comply with the Verordnung über die
Anmeldung des Vermögens von Juden. I have the file but really
need to ask if anyone can translate the hand written parts -
8 or 9 lines

I would prefer this document not to be published via Viewmate
as I do not know what is written and feel it may be quite
personal. Could anybody please help? I have the document
scanned ready to send

Please contact me on sharon_gill@... if you can assist

Many thanks in advance

Looking for LYONSON family from Leeds #general

Shoshana Kahan
 

I've found among family photos members of a family named LYONSON who
are somehow related to my husband's family. Since his original family
name was GUREVITCH, I'm assuming that the "lion's-son" family were
also Gurevitches, but I don't know how closely they were related. In
the early 20th century (or mid-20th?) the family was living in Leeds.
In the UK census records I do find a Lyonson family in the area,
though their names don't match the 1 I have. Are there any descendants
of this family out there who might have some ancestry information to
share?

Thanks,
Shoshana Kahan

MODERATOR NOTE: Please send contact information privately.

Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Records from Letichev and Uezd: Snitkov, Derazhnia, Medzhybizh, Zinkov, Mikhalpol, Volkovintsy, Butsnevtsy #ukraine

Renée K. Carl
 

Hello all

I'm announcing a fundraising campaign to support the translation of
records >from Letichev and Uezd, including Snitkov, Derazhnia,
Medzhybizh, Zinkov, Mikhalpol, Volkovintsy, Butsnevtsy.

Yes, you read that right - documents for Letichev and the towns of
Snitkov, Derazhnia, Medzhybizh, Zinkov, Mikhalpol, Volkovintsy,
Butsnevtsy!

Since the 2003 fire at the Kamyanets-Podilsky Archives, researchers
with ancestors >from towns in the region have wondered if they might
ever access or work with data relating to their relatives. This
opportunity to translate and make the dataset and documents originally
from the Kamyanets-Podilsky Archives available for study is truly
exciting news, and we need your donations to make it a success.

This project will translate and index 1221 images of records from
towns of Lectichev and its uezd, including Snitkov, Derazhnia,
Medzhybizh, Zinkov, Mikhalpol, Volkovintsy, Butsnevtsy. These images
are >from the 1829 and 1833 lists of families for conscription

Donate to the project here:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=22
look for the line that reads "Document Translation and Indexing
Project for Letichev and Uezd."

Throughout the course of the project, completed spreadsheets will be
made available to donors who contribute $100 or more. At the same
time, translations of records might also be posted on relevant
KehilaLink webpages.

We have a translator ready to start, so I hope you will join me in
funding this important work.
