Formation of email group about Isle of Man Internment #austria-czech

Tony Hausner
 

Several of us have recently activated an email group about Internment on the
Isle of Man This is primarily during World War II but also applies
to World War I since internment by the British occurred then as well.
In my case, my parents and other family members, all of whom were Jewish,
escaped >from Vienna shortly after the Anschluss, when the Germans took
over Austria in 1938. Most of my Viennese family members escaped to
England. However, a year later most of them were labeled by their local boards
as "enemy aliens' and spent as much as a year in separate camps on the Isle
of Man. To join our group, please send an email to me at thausner@...

The December Issue of the Galitzianer #austria-czech

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

We are delighted to announce the release of the December 2019 issue of
the "Galitzianer," the quarterly research journal of Gesher Galicia.

Spanning centuries, this issue is a smorgasbord of history, politics,
and family narratives--and it raises a host of interesting questions.
How will a new Polish regulation complicating access to records impact
Jewish genealogical research? What can we learn about the Jewish
community in Galicia >from the first Galician census? How
did universal male suffrage impact Jewish political representation
during the Habsburg Monarchy? How do you uncover your family=E2=80=99s past
when the surviving relative doesn't want to talk about it? What should
you consider before interviewing a Holocaust survivor?

The December issue of the journal raises these and other questions
through the following articles:
- "Research Corner: Successes and Hurdles" by Mark Jacobson
- "The First Habsburg Census" by Andrew Zalewski
- "Jewish Deputies >from Galicia" by Borries Kuzmany
- "Looking for My Parents" by Reuven Liebes
- "My Grandmother=E2=80=99s Kitchen=E2=80=9D by Peter Bein
- =E2=80=9CMap Corner: 1850 Cadastral Map of Gorlice=E2=80=9D by Jay Osborn
- =E2=80=9CA Day with Murray=E2=80=9D by Barbara Krasner

Looking for Information on Bronek Strosberg - ?Brazil

Bubbles Segall
 

I am trying to find information on Bronek Strosberg who was born in
Poland in 1926. His parents were Max (Maximillian) Strosberg and
Leah (Leocadja) Strosberg (nee Kopyto). His siblings were Halina
(Hanna) Strosberg born in Warsaw Poland on 1 February 1933 and Esther
Strosberg born in 1928.

When the Warsaw ghetto opened, the family moved to live with the
Strosberg grandparents whose house was located within the ghetto.
Halina and her sister Esther were smuggled out of the ghetto and their
father arranged for them to live in hiding with a number of families
in the countryside outside of Warsaw.

The family thought that Bronek perished during the Holocaust but now a
letter has come to light at Bad Arolson which states that Bronek
survived the Holocaust and emigrated to Brazil in 1947.

Does anyone have any information on Bronek?

Translation request--RUSSIAN--images on Viewmate

Joseph Walder
 

I have posted a vital record in Russian for which I need a translation. It is for part of the LUCHANSKIY family of Koshevata, Tarashcha uyezd, Kiev gubernia, and may be found on ViewMate distributed over three images:


http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM76082
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM76083

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM76084

 

This record is from an 1875 census. I am able to make out a few of the names but I cannot actually read Russian so I would love as complete a translation as possible.

 

Many thanks—

Please Help Support JewishGen's Important Work - We Need You More Than Ever #poland

Avraham Groll
 

Dear Friends,

This past week, there were many online "deals" available throughout
the world - yet there is one deal that is unlike any other -
JewishGen.org.

The vital work of JewishGen is made possible supported by more than
1,000 volunteers, and impacts the broader Jewish community in
immeasurable ways. Specifically of interest to Polish researchers,
consider the following JewishGen resources:
- Our Polish Collection currently contains more than a million unique
records. In addition, due to a special arrangement, we make JRI-Poland
records available via the JewishGen Archival Collections.
- The JewishGen Communities Database contains information about
thousands of Jewish Communities throughout the world - including a
significant number of entries for Poland.
- Researchers can learn about what life was like in their Polish
ancestral towns, by reading translations of Yizkor (Memorial) Books
that JewishGen has translated for dozens of Polish towns. These books
were written by Holocaust survivors to perpetuate the memory and
legacy of Jewish communities prior to the Holocaust, and often contain
lists of martyrs, and first-hand accounts of what happened to
community members during the Shoah.
- We connect thousands of people researching their Polish Jewish roots
via the JRI-Poland Discussion Group - which JewishGen is proud to host
- along with the JewishGen Family Finder, and Family Tree of the
Jewish People.
- And we have much more being worked on!

Please help us continue our important work, and consider making a
contribution to JewishGen today. A gift of any amount will make an
impact, and will help us continue to "preserve our Jewish history and
heritage for future generations."

You can easily donate by clicking here: http://bit.ly/JewishGenFall19
Please note: All gifts of $100 or more qualify for our Value Added Services.

Thank you in advance for your support of JewishGen's important work -
we can't do this without you.

Sincerely,

Avraham Groll
Executive Director
JewishGen.org

MODERATOR'S NOTE: An important reminder that JRI- Poland and
JewishGen are separate organizations, each with its own
administrative and fundraising structures.

Polish and Galician Jews in Cairo in the 20th Century #poland

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Siggers,

I published last week on Avotaynuonline.com an index
of surnames of 1,689 Jewish familiesthat lived in Cairo,
Egypt during the 20th century.I posted it on different
Facebook groups of Egyptian Jews and on the Sephardic
SIG and the general Jewishgen list.

I started getting feedback, corrections and additions
and have another 30 surnames which I was not aware of.
Several Ph.D. candidates drew my attention to surnames
of Polish and Galician Jews who lived in Cairo. Thus,I
decided to post the link here with the hope that you'll
look at the methodology and the names and come up with
more.
