Farming in Antopol #belarus

Blake Fleisher <blake@...>
 

Dear Genners,

Does anyone know about the Antopol farms? My great grandfather Charles
Goldberg and his family owned a farm in Antopol. Since I am new to
Belarusian research, what databases would you recommend for me to search to
find information about the farm?

USHMM "Hidden History of the Kovno Ghetto" Online Exhibit #germany

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

The USHMM has an online exhibition on the Kovno Ghetto that may be of interest
to researchers:

"Hidden History of the Kovno Ghetto"

http://www.ushmm.org/museum/exhibit/online/kovno/

"During the three-year life of the Kovno ghetto in Lithuania, members of the
terrorized Jewish population, determined to leave a record for posterity,
methodically created secret archives, diaries, drawings, and photographs
to document German crimes against their community. Most of these works were
buried beneath the ghetto. Dug up after the war,wooden crates reveal the history
of the ghetto."

Renee Steinig has pointed out to me that thousands of German Jews were also
deported to Kovno and murdered in the Ninth Fort, so this exhibit might be
of interest to German researchers too.

The museum has also published a hardcover book on this topic, available in
their bookstore.

Looking for my WEISS/WOLFMAN/VOLFMANN family #poland

Debbie Jurblum
 

I am about to travel to Poland, Germany and Switzerland and have a
researcher looking up details for my father and grandfather. I thought
it best to try all avenues and see if anyone would know or have a
connection on my WEISS/WOLFMAN/VOLFMANN family.

My father IZYDOR WEISS was born in Bielsko-Biala and his father JOSEPH
WEISS b. 12.12.1906 ( I was told that he could have been from
Czechoslovakia) , married Rachel Leah TEICHTAHL b. 1907 Nowy Sacz.
Joseph's father was IZYDOR WEISS also and I think his wife or Joseph's
sister was Hadassa.

I also know that he had some WEISS cousins in Switzerland that he
contacted in either the 60's or 70's. I would also love to find them
and contact them when I arrive.

Please email privately

Thank you

Birzai - Internal Passport Records #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

I have just received the first 883 BIRZAI Internal Passport records --
1919-1940. The number of additional records translated will depend on
the amount of money donated to support the project. It is not possible
to determine in advance the extent of the records so a target amount
cannot be arrived at. Several thousand dollars, at least,will be needed
to complete the BIRZAI Internal Passport records.

In order to qualify, and receive the records as they are translated,
$100 or more must be donated. To contribute, go to www.litvaksig.org
and click on BECOME A CONTRIBUTOR. You can make your donation
online using a credit card. Or, if you prefer, you can mail in your
credit card information or your check . Be sure and designate your
contribution is for Internal Passports - BIRZAI . After you have done so,
please send me an email message informing me of your contribution and
state that it is for the BIRZAI Internal Passport Records. I will send
you the translated records as soon as I receive them and have had an
opportunity to review them. You will not only receive these 885 records
but will also receive all other BIRZAI Internal Passport records as they
are received.

It will be 10 or 12 months before these records will be added to the
All Lithuania Database (ALD). There is a great advantage to receiving
all of the records, as they are translated, as opposed to doing a search
in the database many months later. If you find a record of interest, it
will speed your research along that much faster. Als0
many times records of your ancestors can be found by looking at all of
the records when a surname search fails.

If you do find any records of interest in the BIRZAI Internal Passports,
you can write to the Central Archive in Vilnius and request a copy of
everything in the person's Internal Passport file. Many times, it contains
original records not found elsewhere.

Your immediate family may have left Lithuania prior to 1919 but in most
cases, other family members as well as Uncles, Aunts, and cousins remained.

Your support for the Internal Passport Project is very much appreciated.

New resources on Steve Morse's One-Step website #latvia #courland

Dick Plotz
 

Steve Morse has added three new resources to his One-Step website:
One-Step search interfaces for the

Germans to America
Italians to America
Russians to America

databases recently made available by the U.S. National Archives and
Records Administration (NARA). Links to the One-Step search forms can
be found on Steve's site at <http://stevemorse.org/>. Look at the
third section, "Other Ports of Immigration," and scroll down to the
bottom of the section. The databases generally cover the latter part
of the 19th century.

IAJGS Chicago 2008 Conference Announcement #latvia #courland

ANNE LEE <information@...>
 

We want to share this important announcement about the Chicago 2008
conference with all of you.

Eighteen (18) computer workshops have now been scheduled. Each workshop
lasts one hour and 45 minutes. The registration fee is $25.00 per person.
Attendance is limited to 25 individuals per workshop (note: many of the
workshops offered at last year's conference sold out). These workshops
provide an excellent opportunity for you to learn new computer and Internet
research skills or brush up on existing ones.

You can see the entire list of computer workshops by going to the conference
website and clicking on the "Breaking News" button.

The computer workshops are on the registration form and you must
register/pay in order to participate in any of them.

Because the number of participants in each workshop is limited, we suggest
that you sign up as soon as possible.

If you have not already registered for the conference, go to
www.chicago2008.org and click on "Registration"

If you have already registered, go to "registration" and then "registration
update" to add computer workshops.

And, don't forget to sign up for breakfasts with experts and/or luncheons
when you register or update your registration.

On behalf of IAJGS, the JGS of Illinois, and the Illiana JGS, we look
forward to seeing you in Chicago!
