Salgotarjan (and Nograd?) resource #hungary

My dear friends -

I stumbled upon this site when I was doing some searching for my family in
Salgotarjan. Perhaps it is already common knowledge, but I couldn't take the
chance of not sharing it, just in case. If my rudimentary Hungarian serves me
correctly, it seems to be a list of deportees or murders during the Holocaust.
You can scroll through the names alphabetically, and there is often data about
parents and birthplace. Perhaps there is something similar for the other towns in
Nograd, but I haven't searched yet. In any case, I hope that this can be of use
to someone.

It would be wonderful if a team of technically gifted subscribers
could do for some of our lost Jewish places of residence what a team
has just done for London before the great fire of 1666. It would be
the equivalent of living Yizkor books in a certain way. See link.

Member's search for family tree #poland

RuthNW <ruthnw@...>
 

Re: In search of family tree

Further to a response to Alan Bauer's inquiry about his (late)
grandfather's family tree -

"A cousin of mine mentioned that one of grandfather's cousins had recently
passed away and that he had sent and/or posted our family tree with Yad
Vashem. I have looked at the Yad Vashem site, but I am unable to find
anything related to family trees. Am I looking in the wrong place? Is there
perhaps a different repository for Jewish Family Trees?"

Yad Vashem does not post family trees. What Yad Vashem posts are Pages of
Testimony commemorating individual victims of the Holocaust, written by
relatives or friends after the war. These often contain valuable
genealogical information, of course, but they are not family trees. The link
is:

http://db.yadvashem.org/names/search.html?language=en

What your cousin may have been referring to are the family trees collected
by Beit Hatfutsot, the Museum of the Jewish People in Tel Aviv. This body
does urge the Jewish public to send in family trees. I have no further
information about this and couldn't find any way to search the trees online.
However, there is a search request form on the website and contact
information. The link is:

http://www.bh.org.il/default.aspx
___________________

I just checked the Beit Hatfutsot website. If anyone wants to know
how to submit their family tree(s), you'll need to send an email to:
haim@bh.org.il

By the way, I see that the museum's latest project involves family
trees >from Iran.

I have no commercial or financial investment in the museum.

Re: Solomon Malotznik and Charles Goldstein #poland

Michael Fleming <mcf223@...>
 

Am seeking information in particular about Solomon Malotznik.

He married Fanny Micklesohn (aged 18) on 18 October 1896 in London.
He was aged 25.

Fanny became the mother of the following children:
Julius (1897), Harry (1899), Annie (1901), Alec (1907), Natalie (abt 1904),
Hyman (abt 1905), "Btoomah" (Bloomah?) (abt 1909) one of whom became my
father. But in each case the father is shown as "Charles Goldstein."
In the British Census of Population for 1901 Charles' place of birth is
stated as Russia. In the 1911 census it is stated as Poland.

The implication seems to be that Solomon Malotznik changed his name to
Charles Goldstein.

I have not found any further references to the name Malotznik in the British
birth, marriage, death records or the censuses of population. I have found
a reference to a Charles Goldstein in the UK Incoming Passenger Lists for
1895 arriving in Liverpool >from the USA (New York) on a ship called 'Umbria'.
He was aged 23 at this time (so consistent with the age for Solomon on the
marriage certificate) but I am not able to confirm or deny that this is the
same person.

I should be very pleased to know if anyone can throw any light on all this
and to receive information about Solomon and/or Charles.

Dear all,

You will find below ViewMate links to photographs >from Zagare, Lithuania
(on the Latvian border) of young people who would all be in their early 20s.

There is a slight chance that some of these photographs may have been taken
in Panevezys, Lithuania ~ 1927 whilst my father was a student at the
Panevezys Hebrew Gymnasia.

These photographs would have been taken sometime between 1927 and the early
1930s.

Zagare #lithuania

Sara Manobla
 

Like Jo Ann I went to Zagare (in 1998) to learn about the origins of my
family, and I took with me Rose Zwi's book Last Walk in Naryshkin Park. As
well as being a most moving and powerful document of the Holocaust era, it
has a street map of Zagare which I found very useful. When visiting the
local school, I gave my copy of Last Walk to the English teacher who knew
little about the tragic history of the Jews of her own town. She was
genuinely interested and said she would like to use it as a text for her
pupils. This was part of a whole chain of events which brought together a
group of Zagarean descendants and local townspeople. It culminated last
year in a joint project - the dedication of a memorial in the town square,
for the Jewish community of Zagare, massacred in 1941. Present was a group
of 8 descendants, including Rose Zwi. She came >from Australia and unveiled
the memorial plaque and spoke most movingly of her family. The Israel
Embassy in Riga sent a representative who gave the main speech. I have
written a book called "Accepting Zagare" which tells the whole story (and
more), and is in a way a continuation of Rose Zwi's book. It will be
published in the coming months by Gefen publishers (Jerusalem/New York),
details of date, availability etc soon to be released.

Hi Litvaks,

My grandparents came >from Zagare, and that's why I wanted to read the
book Last Walk in Naryshkin Park by Rose Zvi. She tells the story of how
she found her father's family (some living and some deceased) that she
had heard about but never met. Her story is compelling and it makes you
want to read on. It's like reading a mystery that you can't wait to find
out what happens in the end. It's a touching story that would be of
interest to anyone who has heard about their family's or friends'
experiences in the Holocaust, and wants to learn more about that tragic
period in our history. Now I intend to read it again.

It's an invaluable resource for life in Zagare before the war, what
happened there during the Holocaust, and what Rose's immediate family
experienced in Mexico, South Africa, and Australia after her father left
Zagare in 1927. It's 250 pages, and it's not difficult to read. If you
would like to order it, it's available on Amazon.com for $12.22.

ViewMate Photo Identification - Breslau / LEHMAN? - Images 29674 & 29675 #germany

korzen.s
 

Hello,

I've posted two images of a photo (one of the front and one of the back)
and I hope that someone might be able to help me with identification
of the young woman in the photo. These are VM29674 and VM29675.

1. IMAGE 29674 is of the front of the photo. It's of a young woman -
the photo was taken at the Gebr. Barasch department store in Breslau.
I'm assuming it was taken sometime after 1904, given that the
department store opened in 1904 (according to Google). I don't
know how old the young girl is in the photo - but perhaps around
Bat Mitzvah age? Was there a tradition of photos being taken at that age?

2. IMAGE 29675 is of the back of the photo. On the back is written Anite
(?) Isidor LEHMAN. Not sure what to make of this name - could she
the daughter of someone named Isidor LEHMAN. There is a series of
numbers on the top of the photo, which could potentially be a date
(though the date is not in the German date format).

3. My great grandfather's name was Benjamin LEHMAN - >from either
Lithuania or Poland. I don't know the relationship of Benjamin to Isidor.

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM29674
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM29675

Thank you for any help you can provide in identifying this young woman - or
any advice for me on pursuing this.

You can either respond to me via ViewMate or as a personal email to
