The New Synagogue has not held an anniversary celebration of this
size and importance since it was destroyed in the Reichsprogromnacht,
November 1938.
Though it was damaged the New Synagogue was *not* destroyed in the
Kristallnacht, but by bombs during WW II (see
http://www.centrumjudaicum.de/cjudaicum_wp/en/geschichte/ ).

Some police officers stopped the SA and others who had set the building
on fire and called the fire brigade:

There is a often printed photograph that allegedly shows the synagogue
on fire in 1938, but it was taken in 1948 and then retouched:

Daniel LEVY of Guernsey, Channel Islands #general

Sue Levy
 

This is a very long shot.

Daniel LEVY was the youngest son of Mark LEVY (b. Plymouth, England 1800, d.
Guernsey 1848) and his wife Mary (nee LAMBERT, b. Christchurch, Dorset 1804,
d. Guernsey 1839), born in the Channel Islands about 1837.

Daniel's last address that we can find was in Devon, England in the 1851
census, when he was living with a MARKS family, presumably his stepmother's
brother and family. After that he could have gone anywhere - America
perhaps. Who knows?

Daniel's siblings all made their way to Australia and New Zealand in the
1850-60s and we have masses of detail about their descendants and their
lives.

The picture would be complete if we could track down a family tree with him
near the head, or find evidence of his death.

Any help would be appreciated. More information available to anyone who
recognizes him.

ViewMate request - Poland - Galicia #galicia

Hello !

I've posted two pictures on the Jewishgen site, which I found among
the papers my father had kept. He left Poland just before WWII, and lost
all his family there. They were living in Kobylnica Ruska, near Wylkie
Oczy.

I think the pictures are >from his brother, or cousin, but I would like to
know what their uniforms mean, to which army they belonged, at what
approximate date they might have been taken, and every information you
could give me.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Family Numbers (again) #galicia

Henryk Gruder <henrygruder@...>
 

The mystery of "Family Numbers" remains unsolved.

My ancestor Joseph GRUDER (ca. 1795 - 1846) is showed in the Family
Evidence, for the tax purposes as sharing / inheriting ? Family Number 1942
with Mund family, however Joseph has assigned number 505. Since 505
was a number of another (older) branch of the GRUDER family, I assumed
he was a son of the family. Number 1942 included (I assume) a whole family
of Joseph, including his wife Rachel LICHTENHEIM and their children.

In another document, recording marriages in Lvov, Joseph Gruder, who
married Rachel LICHTENHEIM in Lvov, 1809 has a number 5818. This way
Joseph has three different family numbers! 505, 1942, and 5818.

Can anybody make sense of it? Untangling this knot is important, since it
can shed light on relations between different persons.

Any help is welcomed,

Henryk Gruder

More detail on Vilnius death and cemetery records #lithuania

Peggy Freedman <peggyf@...>
 

I have received a great deal of interest in reposting David Shapiro's
remarks about the cemeteries in Vilnius.

Some clarification:

ALL the existing death records for the City of Vilnius >from 1837 to
1940 have been translated and indexed by LitvakSIG. You can see ALL of
these records NOW by donating $100 to the Vilnius District Research
Group of LitvakSIG on our secure website at:
https://www.litvaksig.org/join-and-contribute/
Some of these records are in the All Lithuania Database and some will
not be added for two more years.

LitvakSIG gathered these records >from several archives and found them in
different formats and languages. We expected more financial support
from the community than we have received. There are many other kinds of
records >from Vilnius, and if you would like them translated, please
support the project financially so that we can continue to translate
records.

The original message was about cemetery records. These are not the same
as death records kept by the government, but are catalogs of burials in
a particular cemetery.

To share the information that has been sent to me:
. . . . .The first Jewish cemetery was established in Snipishok. It was
established in the end of 15th century and was closed for burials in
the beginning of the 19th century when the second cemetery was opened.
. . . . .The Jewish cemetery in Zarechye (Uzupis; on the Olandu Street)
was established in 1829. The Jews were buried in this cemetery until
1946. It was destroyed in 1959 when the Soviets built a building there.
. . . . .The third cemetery still exists, this is where the Vilna Gaon's
tomb was moved in 1959. There are still burials in this cemetery. The
inventory for this cemetery was donated to the JewishGen JOWWB project
several years ago.

I have not seen catalogs of the two older cemeteries, we are still
looking for them.
