where to begin? Even if you don't know the names of your grandparents, where
your ancestors originated, or if their town was destroyed in the Holocaust,

you can trace your Jewish roots. Come to the meetings and learn how to start
your search, locate your family shtetls, and use research sources around the

provide you with a list of useful websites. If you are a beginner and need help
getting started, members can assist you.

The meeting room will open at 1:15 p.m. for studying research materials and
asking questions. For people doing online research, JGSI vice-president Mike
Karsen will lead a mini-workshop on Dr. Stephen Morse's one-step forms for

Seeking: Marlene SAY #france

Rosanne Leeson <rdleeson@...>
 

Dear fellow FrenchSIGgers,

I wonder if any of you in France could help to put me in touch with a
Marlene SAY, who was apparently researching a LERHMAN family >from Kurov,
Poland. She said that she lived in the Paris area, and gave the email
address of < bernard.say@wanadoo.fr > She has never responded back to
any emails, but messages sent to that address do not bounce back.
Attempts to locate her on the Infobel.fr site do not find her family.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

My visit to Ciechanow and Mlawa archives #poland #ciechanow

Alice Josephs
 

Hi everyone,

Well, I finally did it. I went to Poland for other purposes but spent a
day going with Krysztof Malczewski (JRI-Poland's representative in
Poland, known as Chris) and his Russian born assistant Lydia to
archives in Mlawa (where the pre 1905 records are kept) and Ciechanow
(post 1905 records).

I have to add that I didn't have time to look round Ciechanow (or
Mlawa) except for a meal in a local restaurant and a quick peep at the
local castle, but I do aim to go back again soon. Of course being with
Chris and Lydia smoothed the way, especially (as many of you probably
already know most of the records are in Russian Cyrillic, although some
First World War records are in German). You can see photos of Ciechanow
and Mlawa archives at http://ciechanow.tripod.com

To cut a long story short, I have now discovered my JABLUSZKO (JOSEPHS)
family does not seem to have been in Ciechanow after 1904, the year my
JABLUSZKO grandfather emigrated. However his mother's ROZENBERG family
probably was in Ciechanow right up to 1939.

You can see my JABLUSZKO family starting at

http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~genealice/wc02/wc02_235.htm

This starts with Josek JABULSZKO born about 1800 who married Dobra
JOSKOWNA. However it sounds as if JOSKOWNA may possibly be a Russian
patronymic rather than a surname. My grandfather's grandmother was
Estera Malka BENDER, So I am now also researching the BENDER family of
Ciechanow.

My great grandfather, also called Josek JABLUSZKO, married twice. His
first marriage was to Frymeta GOLDSZTEJN and his second to my great
grandmother Yetta (Judith) ROZENBERG, daughter of Jankiel ROZENBERG and
Brana born MILICH. So I am also now looking for the MILICH family.

I also visited Pultusk, the birthplace of my grandmother, Fanny (Feiga)
DON and her mother Leah born GOLDMACHER who married Chezkel or Heyman
DON/DAN for her second marriage. The bus to Ciechanow stopped first in
Pultusk, so you can see that even though my grandparents married in
London, UK they didn't stray far for marriage partners. I also visited
the Pultusk archives and also took photos. You can see those photos at
http://J-Pultusk.tripod.com

I do aim to go back to Ciechanow soon so that I have a chance to see
more of the town as well. Has anybody looked round the town?

And of course, please contact me if you think you think there is any
connection between my families and yours!

Kedainiai Vital Records Project: an update #lithuania

Olga Zabludoff <oz@...>
 

Translations of the Kedainiai vital records are progressing at a good pace;
occasionally it is even difficult to keep up with the proofing. All of the
20th century birth records (1901-1914) have been translated and were
distributed to qualified donors during June and July. The translator has now
completed all the birth records of the 1850 decade, and these translated
files are currently being proofed. They will be distributed to donors in the
near future.

BUT, the faster the translations, the quicker our funds deplete. Generous
contributions have been made by some Keidan researchers, but they cannot be
expected to support this translation project alone. Too many Keidaners have
not yet participated financially, although I continue to encounter the
surnames they are researching while proofing the translated records. Some
are waiting for these records to be posted on the ALD (All Lithuania
Database). That is an option, but it is not the best option.

Once the translated vital records are posted, they become part of a vast
searchable database . It is hardly the same as receiving intact files of
vital records for the entire Jewish community of Keidan for a given year.
The advantages of looking at the total picture are many.

A contribution of $100 will qualify you to receive all files of Kedainiai
translated vital records. If you have already made a lesser donation, you
can supplement it to become an eligible donor. Help keep this effort on
track and moving forward. Donations to LitvakSIG
http://www.jewishgen.org/litvak/donor.htm
by check or credit card are tax-deductible. Please mail your contribution to
LITVAKSIG, Inc., File 50194, Los Angeles, CA 90074-0194
or fax the contribution form to 661/299-9198. You can email me privately
to receive the Vital Records form or for any further information.

L'shana tova to all.

Correction to yesterday's: Alperovich (aka Alpert) in Postawy, Kurenets, Vileika, Borisov and Myadel, and other towns #belarus

Ziegelman <zieg_exp@...>
 

The Registration No. for Notan/Nosen Zelik >from Kurenets was erroneously
reported in my posting of Sept. 21, 2005. It should read: Notan/Nosen Zelik
(b. 1825) >from Kurenets (Registration No. 184) .

By the way, I know of a descendent of this Notan/Nosen Zelik, whom I "met"
on the wonderful web site that documents 20th century Eastern European
Jewish life, www.centropa.org. His name is Vladimir Rabinovitch, and he
lives in Latvia.

Using the name "Notan" as a guide, I'm probably related to Vladimir, as well
as to other "Notan" Alperoviches, since I've got a Notan/Nathan in my Alpert
family..

Go to this site, and check for your cousins in the ARCHIVES, "Search by
name" section.

Request for Exhibit Materials from Tykocin Museum #poland

Mark Halpern
 

Dear Friends:

Many of you know that the historic Tykocin Synagogue built about 1652 is
now a Judaica Museum operated by the Podlaskie (Provincial) Museum
authority. Many Jewish researchers visiting northeastern Poland have
visited this Museum and enjoyed its restored interior. For more
information about the Synagogue, please see
http://ddickerson.igc.org/tykocin.html.

The Tykocin Museum has been very kind to Jewish researchers. Recently
the Museum shared the 1905 Tykocin Jewish property tax list with
BIALYGen. This list has been transliterated and will be online in the
near future.

The Museum is now preparing an exhibit concerning Tykocin Jewish life
between the wars (1918-1939) and before. They have requested Tykocin
researchers to provide photos, documents, and other memorabilia for this
exhibit. If you have such materials, please contact me privately and we
can discuss the loan or copying of materials for this exhibit.

Thanks in advance for your help.
