(Scotland) BBC Scotland Database on Scottish Men and Women Who Lost Their Lives During WWII #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

To mark the 69th anniversary of VE Day in Europe, BBC Scotland has gathered
data on the thousands of Scottish men and women who lost their lives during
the Second World War. The database provides details on 21,740 Scots killed
between 1939 and 1947. In actuality the number of Scots war dead is much
larger than that. The BBC Scotland searched the database of the Commonwealth
War Graves Commission (http://www.cwgc.org/find-war-dead.aspx), but due to
discrepancies in the manner of data collection, not all deceased's next of
kin were contacted for information. You can search the database by putting
terms in the search field such as surname or regiment. You can also order
the question data by clicking on a specific column header. The database is
displayed by county, surname, forename, date of death, age, rank, regiment,
unit, country and cemetery. I did search with "Jewish sounding names" and
did receive "hits" in return. The Scottish deceased World War II dead can
be found worldwide-->from Albania to Zimbabwe. To search the database go to:
http://marcellison.com/bbc/war_dead/war_dead_db/ Access is free and open to
all.

Thank you to Scotland'sPeople (www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk) for alerting us
to this new online database.

Barcelona Refugee Card for Jenny LEVI/LEVY #germany

Liz Hanellin
 

Hello GerSIGgers!

I posted this message to the general JewishGen list and was encouraged to post
it here as well.
 
I have previously posted about my search to learn the fate of my great Aunt Jenny
and many of you have sent me useful information, helping to move my search
along, inch by inch. Thank you so much!
 
Jenny (nee FRANKENTHALER, Feb 25, 1898, Untereisenheim) moved to Frankfurt
in 1939 with her husband Ludwig LEVI/LEVY and I have lost any definitive trail of
her after that (she is not in the Gedenkbuch), although I have a record suggesting
that Ludwig was killed in 1942 in Majdanek (I can't confirm this yet, since I don't
have his birthdate and there were many Ludwig LEVI/LEVYs).

Are there any experts out there on the Barcelona DP/Refugee Cards >from the
"Munich, Vienna and Barcelona Jewish Displaced Persons and Refugee Cards,
1943-1959 (JDC)" database?

I found a Refugee Card (Card no. 558) for a Jenny LEVY who was detained in
Gerona and then Barcelona, Spain (presumably after crossing the French/Spanish
border). The card indicates that she was put in the charge of the French as of
1/7/43 (which I interpret as July 1, and not January 7, based on the other dates
on the card) and the last entry on the card says "Partie Afrrique du Nord,
CRI 17/4/44", i.e., she left for North Africa on April 17, 1944, via the Red
Cross International. Unfortunately, according to the International Committee of
the Red Cross website, research for their WWII archive is suspended at least until
2016 during a conservation and scanning project.

Without access to these archives, does anyone know if there a way of tracing that
departure to North Africa to find out which specific country it went to and whether
there is an existing manifest that might indicate information about the refugee/
passenger in addition to her name (such as nationality and/or birthdate)?

Or, are there any other records relating to this group of refugees? I have also tried
contacting the JDC, but have not heard anything back yet.

Thanks in advance! Liz Hanellin, New York City liz_hanellin@yahoo.com

I have looked all over in passenger and naturalization list for a Isaac
ZARITSKY b abt 1880 in DerHitchion Russia and died 1935 in Chicago, Cook,
Illinois. He was a rabbi...
Sonja King
According to the Jewish Communities Database, DerHitichion could be either
Derechin or Drahichyn in Belarus, or Drohiczyn, Poland. All were in Grodno
guberniya in the Russian Empire. (Two towns in Bessarabia / Romania also
came up in a search.)

Australian naturalizations #general

philafrum
 

Dear Genners,

I'd appreciate learning how to access Australian naturalizations.

I'm searching for a Yankel/Jankiel BLACKER/BLECHER (or any variation) who
supposedly immigrated to Australia >from Lithuania around 1937.

I've found some individuals with that name (or similar) but I don't know
which one is the correct match.

How do I access Australian naturalization records? If I can search through
them, I may be able to get an appropriate match.

Many thanks.

Galician Birth Record Need Translation #galicia

Rochelle Gershenow
 

I have a birth record >from JRI-Poland that I need translated. It is written
in either German or Polish. The birth record is for "Fradel," which is the
third birth record on the page. I am particularly interested in what is
written below the name of her father, "Samuel Dawid Kahane." That
column is supposed to list the father's name, occupation, and
residence. The town is Bialykamien (spelling varies). The mother is Sure
Fruhstuk. I am also interested in what is written in the Remarks column,
which is the last column. The record can be found at
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM33735.

MODERATOR NOTE: Please do not use diacritical/accent marks when
writing to JewishGen lists. Lyris does not support them and they come
through to us in code -- e.g. Fr=FChst=FCk instead of Fruhstuk --that
must be corrected before a message is posted.

"My Mother's Voice" with Judy Sima

Take a journey into the past with Judy Sima as she tells stories of
her mother, Elsa Mosbach, including the compelling account of her
encounter with the Gestapo on Kristallnacht, her escape >from Germany
during World War II and adjustment to her new life in America.

Following the storytelling, Judy describes her research to chronicle
her mother's journey. In the second part of the program, participants
will be encouraged to tell stories about their own parents using a
series of "Conversation Starters." We will break up into smaller, more
intimate circles where you can feel free to reminisce. After the
event, take the "Conversation Starters" home to share your stories
with loved ones. There are guaranteed to be smiles, laughter and
possibly a few tears. Everyone leaves with a warm feeling in their
hearts having brought memories back to life and knowing that others
have enjoyed them, too.

Judy Sima is an award winning storyteller, author, and educator. She
has been featured at conferences and festivals, schools and libraries
throughout Michigan and across the country. A retired middle school
librarian, Judy has been telling stories since 1983. Considered to be
the "Pied Piper of Storytelling in Metro Detroit," Judy has introduced
many young people and adults to the art of storytelling. She is the
recipient of the Distinguished National Service Award >from the
National Storytelling Network and the current president of the Detroit
Story League.
