Re: Elisabeth as a Hebrew name #germany

"Elizabeth" is a Greek form of Elisheva, who was the wife of Aaron and
the mother of Eleazar. She is mentioned only once: Exodus 6:23.

Internal Passport Records Added to the Database #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

3,534 additional Internal Passport records have been added to the
LitvakSIG All Lithuania Database (ALD) and the Jewishgen Lithuania
Database. These records, and many more, are also available on
the appropriate Litvak SIG District Research Group web site.

These internal passports were applied for in the following towns in
Lithuania - Panevezys, Klaipeda, Palanga, Velvirzeniai, Kartena,
Darbeniai, Andriejavas, Kuliai, Nosedis, and Plateliai.

Even if you are not interested in any of these towns, you should search
the database anyway because the records include the place of birth
which could be entirely different >from the town where the applicant
obtained their internal passport. In addition to doing a surname search,
I suggest you also do a town search if the town of your interest is a
small one. Doing a town search for Vilnius or Kaunas, as an example,
will not bring any results as it would provide a large response that
cannot be transmitted.

The internal passport records cover the period, 1919-1940. However,
do not be misled by those dates if your family left there prior to
1919. Your immediate family may have left but everyone did not leave.
Siblings, uncles, aunts, cousins, etc. remained.

Elisabeth as a Hebrew name #germany

I found Gerhard Buck's posting interesting in that he wrote:

I always thought that Elizabeth was a Christian name. Is it really a Hebrew

"common" Hebrew name?

Sir Nicholas Winton on "60 Minutes" - Sunday, April 27 - Rescuer of Czech & Slovak Children in WWII #austria-czech

Pamela Weisberger
 

Sir Nicholas Winton will be featured on CBS' 60 Minutes this Sunday,
April 27th at 7:00PM (eastern time) in a segment titled "Saving the
Lives of 669."

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/saving-the-lives-of-669-children/

Bob Simon will interview Sir Nicholas about his inspiring and selfless
rescue of 669 Czech and Slovak children >from the hands of the Nazis.

In the late 1930s Winton used a two-week vacation >from his job as a
London stockbroker to go to Prague and see what he might do to help
refugees whose lives he knew were in danger. His background hadn't
prepared him for humanitarian work, but he tells Simon, "I work on the
motto that if something's not impossible, there must be a way of doing
it." He wound up collecting the names of hundreds of children from
their desperate parents and then returned to London to figure out a
way to get them out. His successful mission was almost unknown for
half a century.

Sir Nicholas turns 105 on May 19th. There is also a documentary film
"Nicky's Children," based on his story:
http://www.menemshafilms.com/nickys-family

You can view previous episodes of this show on the "60 Minutes"
website, so if you can't see it in real time it should be available
next week online.
