Trying to reach Tamar Sobieszczanska #lodz #poland

Sarah Lasry <srhlsr@...>
 

I am trying unsuccessfully to contact Tamar Sobieszczanska.

I hope that members of this Lodz SIG can help me; perhaps some of you
know her, or have been in contact with her.

She lives in Lodz, Poland. Very recently both she and I have
communicated; we might be related, but have further avenues to explore
in order to confirm that.

Shortly after we e-mailed, & even spoke on the telephone, as of the
last few weeks, I cannot "reach" her ! (I have e-mailed her, left her
a message on her phone....no replies are forthcoming.)


Thank you for publishing this message on your group; Members, I hope
that some of you can be of help!

IGRA's New Search Engine and databases for Israel #galicia

Billie Stein <billie.stein@...>
 

IGRA Israel Genealogy Research Association has released its new search
engine for the AID (All Israel Databases) section available at:
http://genealogy.org.il/AID/.

In July, at the IAJGS International Conference in Paris, IGRA was
awarded the Stern Grant with the intent that these monies to be used
to develop a bi-lingual search engine to improve our website. We
contracted with Brooke Schreier Ganz and worked closely with her to
build what we hope will be a much improved search experience. Rose
Feldman, Carol Hoffman, Daniel Horowitz, Garri Regev and Philip
Trauring have each given >from their special fields to make this
possible. We believe we bring you now a balanced assortment of
databases >from the Ottoman, British and Israeli Administrations,
relating to communities >from the north to the south, and in many
different fields. Some of the databases are in English but most are
in Hebrew, with a few additional languages as well. Each database is
presented in the language of the material found. The search engine,
however, is able to understand both English and Hebrew and will bring
you matches in both languages even if you only entered the name in
one language.

There is a virtual keyboard if you do not have a Hebrew keyboard and
want to use one.

You will notice that in addition to entering the names you are
searching there are possible filters on the right side of the page to
help you fine tune your search. Try them out!! Adding more or taking
them away is quite simple. Our databases and search engine page is
available to all registered users of our website (free).

Please be sure to log in. You will be alerted if you do not have
permission to access information. Due to restrictions >from the various
archives we have had to layer the accessibility of our databases. There
are databases available to everyone. Some of our databases allow you
to search but not to see all of the details. Other databases are only for
paid IGRA members. The same is true for the images of the databases.
Almost all of the images have been added and more will be added in
the coming days.

Rokiskis and Zarasai 1919-1940 Internal Passport records #lithuania

michael kransdorff <mkransdorff@...>
 

The Zarasai District Research Group has recently been given the
translated internal passport records for the towns of Rokiskis and
Zarasai.

These two lists provide information on over 3000 people, who lived in
these towns between 1919 and 1940. One of the exciting features of
these records is that they often state a family's physical address.
Many of the people listed in the records were born in other towns in
the district and may thus be relevant not only to people interested in
Zarasai and Rokiskis.

The records have now been posted to the Shutterfly website of Zarasai
District Research Group. Access to this website is available to
contributors. A Contribution totaling $100 or more qualifies an
individual and, for the next five years, provides access to the
website, as well as exclusive access to all newly translated records
for at least 18 months before they are made publicly available on the
All Lithuania Database (ALD). Your tax deductible (for US taxpayers)
contributions can be made to www.litvaksig.org/contribute by credit
card, or by check at the address that is listed there. Please be sure
to designate the Zarasai DRG as the recipient.

Ukraine SIG Mailing List Reaches 3,000 Readers #ukraine

cmw521@...
 

As of today, we now have 3,001 readers of this list. As the largest
JewishGen SIG Mailing List, this is a significant milestone. Our readers
come >from around 30 countries around the world, and many of them are quite
knowledgeable in various areas of Ukraine genealogy. Our efforts to find
and digitize information on Ukraine are bearing fruit. We now have over 180
Town Leaders and the number of KehilaLinks pages continues to grow. If you
haven't done so, check out the All-Ukraine database for names and places of
interest. It, too, continues to grow. We are committed in 2013 to continue
growing this list. Projects for data acquisition continue to multiply, and
later this month, a special announcement will formalize a relationship for
getting more information >from inside Ukraine. More to follow on this.

Happy New Year to all of our readers. May this be the year that you break
through your brick walls and find the documents you are seeking. If we can
help in this effort, we will do our best. And don't forget to ask our
3,000+ readers for advice. That is what we are all here for.

Odessa Committee List of Members #ukraine

barry_helfand@...
 

I am exploring the possibility that Yehuda Yankel Ziskroit, my grandfather, may have been a member of the Odessa Committee during the years 1895 to 1904. I have a portrait photo of him wearing a Star of David lapel pin containing the Hebrew word Zion. Is anyone aware of a list of members of the Odessa Committee? According to Wikipedia, there were more than 4,000 members in this organization prior to the First Zionist Congress in 1897.

NADLE and MARKUS from Riga and Tukums #latvia

collectorden
 

Hi to the list!

I'm new to the list and Jewish Genealogy in general.

I'm currently researching my wife's ancestry. Her NYC birth
records were sealed by her mother when she was born, so after a
lenghty process we just finally obtained her maternal grandparent's
names in October, and it appears both trace back to Latvia,
even though they met and married in Brooklyn, NY.

Her maternal grandfather is the son of Israil MARKUS and Pesa
HIRSHFELD married in 1882 in Riga. They all migrated to Brooklyn
except Isreal. Pesa also went by Pessie, and Bessie and Pauline
after immigrating.

Childern are:
Jake MARCUS (1899) who immigrated as Lankel MARCUS
Vera MARCUS (1898) who immigrated as Dwoire MARCUS
Louis MARCUS (1892) who immigrated as Chazkel MARCUS
Charles MARCUS (1889) who immigrated as Zalel MARKUS (Held by
immigration as a political Agitator)
Harry Marcus (1883) who possibly immigrated as Hersh MARCUS. (My wifes
grandfather.)
Max MARCUS (1886) prior name unknown.

Her maternal grandmother, Fannie NADLE, was born in england as Fanny
NODEL, and grew up in Ireland as Fanny NOODLE. Fannie's Father Samuel,
born in 1875 to Benedict and Sarah NADLE, lists his nationality as
Russian and Later Polish, but his brother Isidore, born in 1886, lists
his birthplace as Tuckum Courland, so I assume Samuel at least lived in
Tuckam.

My current quandries are what names Harry and Max might have immigrated
with, and what surname the NADLEs might have used in Tuckam as I cannot
find immigration info on any of them.

If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be greatly
appreciated.

Thank You,

Dennis Donovan
