Yizkor Book Project, March 2013 #warsaw #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Whilst you munch on your matzo, I will provide you with something to read
about what happened in the Yizkor Book Project during March.

For a start, as I predicted in previous reports, there were a number of
projects that were completed this month.

- Dotnuva, Lithuania (Letters >from Dotnuva)
- Kremenets, Ukraine (Memorial book of Krzemieniec)
- Szczuczyn, Poland (>from the Inferno Back to Life)

The completion of the Kremenets book, in particular, comes after many years
of dedicated coordination by Ron Doctor and Ellen Garshick and quite a few
volunteers who deserve a deal of thanks for their splendid translations. The
result of all this team's efforts has now been rewarded by the placement of
the whole book online but they certainly aren't resting on their laurels and
the translations of other Kremenets Yizkor Books continues on with great
earnest.

It is also important for me to note the completion of the Szczuczyn project
which is a personal memoir belong to Itzhak Wertman z"l, who sadly passed
away quite recently. I had the honor of being in contact this fine gentleman
over many years and, as with many of the Holocaust survivors, he saw the
great importance of making the Yizkor Book material readily available to the
present generation and those to come. We are deeply indebted to him for his
participation with the YB Project.

Now in order for our project to continue and expand, we are always on the
lookout for volunteers to help out in the wide scope of activities the
Yizkor Book Project involves. So, if you are able to translate >from Hebrew
or Yiddish, edit translated material or help type up English pages, your
assistance in these fields would be most welcome and I would be very pleased
to hear >from you.

Now to facts and figures for March, during this last month we have added

Hi,
My name is Yacov, son of holocaust survivors and I'm trying to help people
who are looking for their relatives in Israel.
I have found only 1 man and 1 woman that might fit your searching.
The man was Rosenberg Israel born in Poland 1.1.1903 and died in 8.8.85
He immigrated to Israel before w.w.2 married Hinda and had 2 daughters:
Melzer zipora who was living in their apartment in 30 Krinizi st. and
their tel. number was (if you call outside Israel) 972-3-6739130
I have I hope the num. of the second daughter son (her name is Lea Kishoni)
His name is Eyal Kishoni 972-50-631-3572 ask the first daughter about her
father or him about his grandfather Israel, maybe it is your family.

I have found also only one Ester Hershfinger born 24.12.1900 died 15.11.82
she immigrated to Isreal also before w.w.2 and I did not found any
connection to Rosenberg Israel (You better ask them).
Her son's name is Yacov Hershfinger and he might give you also some answers
which I hope will find your family:
Tel: 972-3-672-8898 972-77-424-2187
I wish you lots of luck with your research,
Sincerely
Yacov.

Hello
I am looking for the descendants of YISRAEL ROSENBERG, son of Avraham Chaim
Rosenberg and Lea Khana. He was born late 1880's or 1890's, came to Israel
possibly before WW2 and lived at 31 Pines Street, Tel Aviv in 1952 Also
looking for descendants of ESTHER HERSHFINGER / ROSENBERG who I think was
Yisrael's sister, born around the same time a she was, and lived at 63 Herzl
Street, Tel Aviv in 1956.
I believe these people were the only survivors of their immediate family and
would have been my great uncle and great aunt. Any help would be gratefully
accepted.
Thanks,

The Invisible Tatoo, a remarkable story of discovery and survival #poland

Michael Goldstein
 

I thought that this is worth sharing with all our Jewish Genealogy Friends.
In her Huffington Post article published yesterday, Marisa Fox writes,
"My mother, who's been dead for almost 20 years, told me a fictionalized
account of her childhood."

Marisa traces how she discovered her mother's true identity and the
shocking real story of her mother's hidden wartime experience and survival.

Three well-known members of our Jewish genealogical community
play key roles in helping Marisa uncover the truth of how her mother
spent the war years in the Gabersdorf slave labor camp, how her
words in a friend's secret diary - written in the camp - so dramatically
describe the despair of their lives and their hopes for survival.

for something later? Such a passport or emigration?

The two such instances I have are marriages in the very early 1900s
and the recovery in the early 1930s.

Ukmerge Foreign Passport Applications - 1925-1938 #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

A translation of the Ukmerge Foreign Passport Applications - 1925-1938,
has just been received.

The list contains the greatest amount of very important information about
the individuals listed that I have ever seen, and I have seen thousands of
lists of various types. I cannot emphasize too strongly the value of this
list. To give you an idea of the information that is included, for most of
those listed, here is a sample of what is there.

Surname, given name, father's name, maiden name of females, date of birth,
place of birth (not everyone was born in Ukmerge), destination, marriage
status, the street address and town of residence, the exact date of their
Foreign Passport Application.

Additionally, there is an individual file for almost every applicant. The
file includes a photo of the applicant, a Lithuanian passport that was
issued on a prior date, plus a lot of family information. Using the
information that has been translated, a researcher can contact the Central
Archive in Vilnius and obtain a copy of all documents in an individual file.

Please do not dismiss this list as of no interest to you personally only
because your family left Lithuania before 1925. Your immediate family may
have left but not everyone left. In most cases, siblings, Uncles, Aunts,
and cousins remained.

It will be several days before the entire list will be available on the
Ukmerge DRG web site. If you are already a contributor to the Ukmerge
DRG web site, please be patient for a day or two and you will be able to
see the entire list. If you are not a part of the Ukmerge DRG, you need
contribute $100 to Litvak SIG and gain access not only to this list but
also thousands of other records for the towns in the Ukmerge District.

Go to www.litvaksig.org/contribute Scroll down to District Research and
select Ukmerge. The site is secure so you can use your credit card.

Roy Ogus r_ogus@... is the Ukmerge District Coordinator. If you
have a problem accessing the site, please contact Roy. However, give Roy
several days to post the list on the web site before contacting him.

Again, I repeat, this is one of the most important lists I have ever seen
from a standpoint of genealogical information included. I am sure you will
agree after you see the list.

Kristallnacht #general

Robert Fraser
 

Dear Experts -

I have posed this question many times before in different forums, printed and
on-line, but have never received an response. So let's try again.

My late father was arrested as part of the Kristallnacht events in Vienna on 10
November 1938. As he was being transported >from one jail to another, his captors
referred to him and his fellow captives as 'Asiatische Steppenhengste'. When
writing his memoirs many years later, he translated this expression as 'Asiatic
steppe-stallions'.


He could never find out what this interpretation meant, and neither can I.
Presumably, it's highly derogatory.

Any suggestions will be welcomed.

GUNSER in Australia #general

Alan Steinfeld
 

Looking for a Mr. GUNSER (born circa 1900) believed to have survived WW II in
Europe and to have gone to Australia after the war. He was married to Cillistine
KORKES who was murdered by the Nazis, along with their son whose name may have been
Henry.

Looking for information about Mr. Gunser's fate and any possible descendants.

Thanks,

Alan Steinfeld

[USA] White House to Propose Restrictions to Death Master File (SSIDI) #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

As expected, the White House has weighed in the issue of tax and identity theft and
is expected to proposed restrictions to the Death Master File and its commercial
version known as the Social Security Death Index. The bill has not yet been
introduced-but Representative Sam Johnson (R-TX) Chairman of the Social Security
Subcommittee of House Ways and Means Committee is expected to introduce the bill in
the coming weeks.

NBC's Rock Center did a story on tax and identity fraud which may be watched

How to research in Israel: Alec Schorr: REPORT on RESULTS ... #general

Joyaa Antares
 

Dear Fellow Genners,

A number of List members have asked me how I got on with my recent enquiry - "How
to do research in Israel?" so here are the wonderful results:

* Several suggested the Israel Genealogy Research Association [IGRA] website:
http://genealogy.org.il. Without subscribing I found some data that added to what
I know about my family. If I subscribed I would get access to digital copies of
the actual records. Lots of useful information (especially under databases) but
for some reason I found the site painfully slow.

* Someone suggested the Israel Genealogical Society (Isragen) website:
http://www.isragen.org.il/

* One wonderfully helpful List subscriber obtained the actual info I sought,
starting with the online Chevra Kadisha sites, e.g.
http://www.kadisha-tlv.co.il. These sites look great - so long as you can
read Hebrew or know the spelling of the surname that has been used - and can
get the "search" button to work (I'm still working on the last point!). I
don't know Hebrew (Ivrit) well enough for this site, but the List members
may be able to help you. Certainly if you know enough Hebrew you have to
use this resource.

* The same helpful subscriber then located my surviving family relative
using the telephone book (again in Hebrew) and subsequently located another
two family members for me. I am more than indebted.

* Another wonderful subscriber knows something about Hebrew restaurants (as
mentioned in my original post) and located several web addresses to my
cousin's restaurants plus - incredibly - a photo of one of them! That blew
me away! (See the pizza restaurant at the bottom of this page,
http://www.haaretz.co.il/magazine/dining/1.1810177)!!

* My final advice - if it is not already obvious - is to ask this list.
There seem to be folk with all sorts of resources up their sleeves - the
above being just some - and their willingness to help is very humbling.

Joyaa. Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.

Please can you help me with general or specific advice as to how to research a late
cousin in Israel. Where do I start to look? Whom in Israel might I ask? My
second cousin, Alec Schorr, lived/worked at 19 Yona Hanavi St, Tel Aviv, owning or
running a restaurant called "Kasba" ( or Kasbah or similar). He is thought to have
died in 1977. He may have had a wife called Sabina. I don't know whether he had
children, whom may or may not still be alive. That's the sum total of what I know.
