http://www.zchor.org/bialystok/bialystok.htm

The new material:

Conference on Jewish Genealogy at Jerusalem last July, organized by Mark.
Halpern with the document he distributed in the Bialystok SIG meeting to
the participants.

* A summary in English of a survey written by Tomasz Wisniewski about the
6 cemeteries of Bialystok, with a rare photograph of the Bialystok cemetery
taken in 1917 at:

("The Vaad"). I was given permission by Mrs. Hana Greenfield, author of the

Mrs. Hana Greenfield has explored for many years the fate of the 1,196
Bialystok children, transported to Ghetto Terezin upon liquidation of the
Bialystok Ghetto in August 1943 and >from there, by a German deceit, they
were deported and murdered in Auschwitz immediately upon arrival, on
October 5th, 1943, together with about 50 nurses and doctors who accompanied
them >from Ghetto Terezin.
The lists are at:

New Page for Brody (Ukraine) ShtetLinks Site #general

Marjorie Rosenfeld <marjorierosenfeld@...>
 

For researchers interested in Brody, there's a new page at the Brody
ShtetLinks site. The URL for the Brody main page is:

http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Brody/brody.htm

The new page is at:

http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Brody/hassenstein.htm

What you'll find there is the story of a righteous German woman in Brody,
Liselotte Hassenstein, who hid Jews in her attic during the Holocaust.
Since Liselotte's brave efforts have never been appropriately recognized, we
are hoping that someone who sees her story and photo will remember her and
can vouch for her so that she can be honored, albeit posthumously as she
recently died.

If you are a Brody survivor and the name "Hassenstein" sounds familiar to
you, please be sure to look at the page.

In doing family research - posting to Jewish gen
I have received some great feedback >from those of you
more experienced
on occasion, however, I receive emails >from those who
provide a cynical or less than helpful reply.

I can always "choose" not to reply. No question is,
in my opinion, silly or stupid. We are all at
different levels of doing family research. It's
important to be tolerant and to assist those who need
a little help.

I recently received a short letter >from the Bundesarchiv in Berlin, in response to
an inquiry. I'd appreciate a translation. Since it is only a couple of
sentences, I'm taking the liberty of including the text here rather than posting
on ViewMate. The "a:" represents an "a" with umlaut.

"Die Recherchen in den Findmitteln des Reichsartzregisters der kassena:rztlichen

I just joined the group and I need your help.
My grand grandfather was born in Hamburg in 1824 his name is Elbe Salomon

He immigrated in 1856 to Palestine with his wife and 3 children.

I don't have any information about the family he left in Germany.

I will be grateful

Re: SELIGMAN(N): from ICHENHAUSEN to ROUXVILLE, then USA #germany

JOHNSON <iti05248@...>
 

Dear Adam
As I live in Durban, when next I visit the archive in Pietermaritzburg
(about an hour's drive >from Durban), I can do a look up for you but I can't
promise when.

The Boer War was >from 1899 - 1902 so it seems unlikely that there would
have been fighting or tension in Rouxville between the Boers and the British
in 1880's. And as far as I know, Rouxville wasn't significant during the war
or prior to it. In any event, most of the fighting took place in northern
Natal, now KwaZulu/Natal and the northern Cape after the Boers invaded Natal
in 1899 (I recommend Thomas Pakenham's book, 'The Boer War' published by
Jonathan Ball for more information about this period).

It is more likely that the order for arrest was at the request of a partner
after a business deal went sour - or for an unpaid debt. Requests for arrest
were fairly common during the 1800's.

Bloemfontein is still the capital although the province is now known as the
Free State rather than the Orange Free State.

My grandparents were living in Pietermaritzburg (Natal) during the Boer War.
As they had a German surname (RICHTER) they were interred in concentration
camps by the British for the duration of the war (Germans were thought to be
sympathetic to the Boer cause) although it is unlikely that a similar fate
awaited Jacob SELIGMAN in the OFS. I hope this is helpful.

Re: Death in Italy, Near Lake Como #general

Nardo Bonomi
 

I would suggest to try with a) the town hall ("Comune", in Italian) of Como
and b) the nearest Jewish Community.
If your great grandfather was on holiday there is remote chance to find some
document of mortruary police in the town hall archive.
If he was observant they surelly asked the help of a rav.
You can find some information and the addresses of town halls here:
http://it.geocities.com/cittadinanzafattiva/jewit.html
And you can find addresses of the italian Jewish communities here:

Hi,
My great grandfather (William Henry ADLER) died in Italy whilst on holiday

descent, so they could have buried him there, rather than bringing him home
to London. Does anyone have any experience in/pointer to, checking this
out?

Social Security Death Index in the USA: What's happened? #general

What has become of the SSDI? It used to have what I believe to be a government
site that was free of charge to search in. Now, when I put in SSDI or Social
Security Death Index, the only sites that pull up are charging fees to view the
records.

Does anyone know of a no-charge site they can direct me to, or is this now the
norm?
