I am trying to contact descendants of Miguel Schapiro or Schapiro who

Shalom Shapiro (my husband's maternal grandfather), came to Toronto at about
the same time. Their father's name was Yitzchak Yaacov.
Please refer to the photo of Miguel, his wife, son & daughter, taken in
Buenos Aires in 1924.

Researching in Boulens, Switzerland #germany

Doug Mason
 

Searching through the records has brought me many surprises and
interesting experiences. I have located living relatives I never knew;
some never knew about me.

My search has taken another turn, and I now find myself needing to look
for records in Switzerland.

My quarry was born in Boulens in 1872. I presume Boulens is a city or
village within a region of Switzerland.

Could someone please tell me how I should start my search. Thanks,

Doug Mason Melbourne Australia <dmason@alphalink.com.au>

I would appreciate if someone could please advise
why there are no records of Naturalization in S.A.;
Passenger Arrivals in S.A. and Jews Temporary Shelter
in London, for families who stayed there on their way to
S.A. >from Eastern Europe , for the years 1920 - 1923.

Neither the S.A. Archives; Ministry of Interior
i.e. Home Affairs; nor information on the Jews Temporary
Shelter have these years recorded although previous and
following years thereafter are recorded.

Is it possible to obtain these records "somewhere"?

I have posted on View Mate a picture taken of the Landsman >from Dunayevtsy,
Ukraine. The Jews referred to their home town as Dinovitz. Dinovitz is located
just to the north-east of Kamenitz Podolsk in the Ukraine.

This picture was taken in the early 1950's in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. We have
been able to identify some of the people but would love to see if anyone
recognizes someone else.

The individuals who are known are marked as:

#`16-Morris ROZENZWOG--born there
#15 Bessie Rozenswog--his wife
#19 Hirsch WEINTRAUB--born there
#28 Nettie Moss COHEN--born there
#29 Hyman SCHECHTER--born there
#33 Rose KIPPNOR Schechter ANBINDER--born there

2006 Group Trip to Lithuania & Nearby Areas #general

Howard Margol
 

I am organizing another group trip to Lithuania, June 13 - 22, 2006. This will be
the 13th group trip I have organized and led to Lithuania. The June, 2005 group
trip was to be the last one I was going to organize. I had 25 in the group and,
it was so successful, the word spread. A number of individuals have asked me to
organize another group trip for 2006. I never say never but frankly, I cannot
promise to do more trips in the future. If you have any thoughts about going to
Lithuania, Latvia, or Belarus now is the time to sign up.

Included - visits to the various Archives, synagogues, ghettos, holocaust sites,
meetings with Jewish leaders, sight-seeing, guide/interpreters, and two days to
visit and spend time in your shtetl, or shtetlach of interest. All meals are
included (except for one dinner and two lunches), the finest hotels (new &
modern), modern bus with onboard toilet, and much more. I am very familiar with
the Archives, the archivists, Lithuania and the main places of Jewish interest.

I do not organize these group trips as a profit-making endeavor. Everything is
done at cost but in a deluxe manner. My main object is to encourage Jews to go
back to their roots, to encourage them to research their ancestors and to enable
them to see the rebirth of Judaism taking place in Lithuania.

Important: This trip is sponsored by the American Fund For Lithuanian-Latvian
Jews, Inc. (a 501(c)(3) non-profit). It is not sponsored or endorsed by Jewishgen
or Shtetlshleppers. My previous trip participants can be contacted if references
are desired.

For details and a full itinerary of the trip, contact Howard Margol, E-mail
homargol@aol.com Very important: Do not ask about this trip through a message
to the Digest. Contact me directly.
***
MODERATOR NOTE: JewishGen's ShtetlSchleppers service provides group tours to a
variety of destinations, as well as advice and assistance with independent travel
to ancestral towns. See http://www.jewishgen.org/shtetlschleppers/ for further
