Tarnow cemetery #galicia

Tomer Brunner <tomerbr@...>
 

Information on the IAJGS cemetery project
(www.jewishgen.org/Cemetery/) regarding Tarnow say that Leszek Hondo
of the university of Krakow has information on about 80% of the
between 5000 and 8000 graves.

I was trying to contact Dr. Hondo through the email of his
university department, but didn't receive a reply.

I would be grateful for any detail about the work of Dr. Hondo, his
contact info, and about the condition of the Tarnow cemetery.

Thanks for your help!

Looking for records in LDS microfilms #galicia

Reuven Liebes <reuvel@...>
 

Dear Friends,

I am searching my family roots that lived in Lwow. I suppose that
some records may be found in LDS microfilms. The microfilms are not
available in Israel. If anyone rented Lwow films I would be thankful
to help me to check whether my ancestors appear there.

someone will confirm that the translation of the name is Shmuel Yakov ben Reb

give me some information about it. I have never heard of it before now. To reply

Dear Researchers,

Some people have difficulties to navigate through "victims of
terror" database.

Even if you have a screen translated does not mean it is properly
searchable. This list may be translated, but search and filtering
features are of course in Russian. Way around. Use that list in
Russian. You have to know how Russian letter sounds. Below is the
site with easy to learn and memorize Russian reading rules. It is
very easy.
http://www.vgd.ru/read.htm

Now you can search in Russian using Russian letters here:
http://www.lists.memo.ru

After you get something, select and copy, go to Google /Language
Tool. Paste into left pane, select "Russian to English" below and
click "translate".

Some people have already found what they needed.
Good luck,

My mother's uncle was a Rachmiel, anglicized as Harry. He was born probably in the
1880s in either Lithuania or Russia. I hope that helps.

Searching for Nemon #ukraine

JNetNF2BonVivart@...
 

My G-Grandparents, Yonah Sigal & Gitel Nemon were both born in
theKropivna/Zloczow/ PomoryanyArea. They took her surname when they married, so the
descendants in that particular line were born to the name NEMON. The Sigal-line has
been very well traced, but I seem unable to find records listed for Gitel
Nemon's birth. I wish to find out the names of her siblings and her parents.
Thus far, I have found only records listing her offspring. I only know that
our family has her listed as being born in 1859 yet don't know how precise
this is. I wish to find out the names & birth records for her parents & her
siblings. Finding her listed with her offspring has provided no answers to her
sibling or the preceding (maternal) generation. Do you have any suggestions
for me? Also, are all records listed as being in the main LDS Library also
orderable to view at any local LDS Library?
Thank-you, Jeannette Nemon-Fischman

the victims of political terror in USSR #ukraine

Nina Kossman <nina@...>
 

I was pleased to see the link to the MEMORIAL website sent by Vladimir
Salita. I explored this website several years ago when I was corresponding
with MEMORIAL about obtaining the KGB files of two family members (my
grandfather who was arrested and shot in the Great Terror of 1937, and my
great-uncle who died in a forced labor camp). There is a wealth of
information on this website. Perhaps I'm wrong, but it seems to me that the
cruelties of Stalinism and the mindboggling numbers of its victims
(estimates range >from 20 million to 80 million) are not known enough in the
West. Oh yes, I realize that that they _are_ known, but my point is that a
crime of such dimensions should inspire much more horror than it does. It
should also be acknowledged by the current Russian government, the way
post-war German gov't acknowledged the guilt of its predecessors, and
elderly survivors of Stalinism should get financial compensation, like do
survivors of the Holocaust. The victims included members of every
nationality found in the USSR; no single national group was left untouched.

I'm also glad that Vladimir Salita sent that other link, a couple of weeks
ago, the one to the database of Soviet soldiers killed in WWII (also >from
MEMORIAL). The war-time losses of the Soviet Union are also not known enough
outside of Russia. To be precise, just as with Stalinism, they are known to
specialists, but not known enough to general public, as they should be
known, especially when one considers the numbers of people killed: over 27
million (civilians and soldiers).

Thank you, Vladimir.
