Treblinka death camp list and Belorussian Cemeteries #general

pauld2@...
 

Hello All,

I am searching for a source of information that would confirm that members of
my family were executed in the Treblinka Death Camp. Does anyone know of a
document listing its victims?

Also, I am searching for a resource that would list Jewish cemeteries or
other sources of Jewish heritage in Belarus. The Polish tourist agency has a
map that publicizes Jewish heritage sites there but the Belarussian
government is not as market-savvy and I am searching for an alternative
resource.

Thanks,

Paul Schkaff

Katunsalar, Ukraine #general

EdG Creek <edgcreek@...>
 

Has anyone ever heard of this city? I just received my Aunt's Naturalization
Papers and it states that this was her last residence in Russia. I tried to
locate it on Map Quest, but had no luck. Since she was 6 months old when she
traveled here, I wonder if the spelling is correct. Any information would be
appreciated.

Kippenheim families #general

M Schejtman <mario_m@...>
 

In searching for my own family I came across at Leo Baeck Institut, 4
volumes of (bear with me here...)
"Handbuch der Judischen gemeindevewaltung und Wolfahrtspfelge" (I hope
there are not too many spelling mistakes.).
In them are listed according to town name amounts of jews in each, the
heads of the community, chevre kadisha, teachers, taxes and more.

I looked at Kippenheim only.

In the volume >from 1911, I found:
R. DURLACHER,
S. AUERBACHER
as heads of the community and Leopold WEIL as head of chevre kadisha.

In 1913, Shalom WEIL was added as head, and Fritz WEIL took over chevre
kadisha.

The next volume was 1924/25. The heads were: Max AUERBACHER, Shalom
WEIL, Salomon AUERBACHER and Jacob DURLACHER. The head of the choir was
J. DURLACHER.

The last volume they had there was >from 1932/33
the heads were: Herman WERTHEIMER, Richard WERTHEIMER and Jakob
AUERBACHER.
The head of chevre kadisha was Fritz WEIL, and the head of the choir was
J. DURLACHER.

I could not find the connection to my family even though I am 100% sure
that Jakob Durlacher is family, but I have no idea how he connects. I
hope this helps someone...

searching for background #hungary

Dear H-siggers;

I am writing a book on the life of my mother and grandmother. My grandparents
name was Adolf and Bertha Preisler. They lived in Sziglaysholyo between
1919-1942 or 45. But my mother and grandmother moved to Nagyvarad in 1930.
My grandmother was also a Kashrut supervisor at a Jewish school in Krossna.
My parents name was Abraham Zeev (Wolf - Willi) and Rosalia Apter. They lived
in Arad >from 1939-50.

If anybody knows anything about them, the Jewish communities in these towns,
the Polish refugees that streamed through it and ended on the Struma, etc. do
contact me directly. I would be ever so grateful.

Best,

Judith. My emails are :jklinghoff@aol. com klinghof@crab.rutgers.edu

Merchants' Third Guild (Novograd-Volynsk), 1858 #general

Jerry Morse <Jerry_Morse@...>
 

A genealogist living in Zhitomir, Ukraine whom I hired appears to have
found my ggf, Mendel Chernomorsky, listed in 1858 officials records for
Novograd-Volynsk. In his report, the genealogist says that Mendel was a
"member of the third guild." Can anyone provide any additional information
on the "third guild" in this area at this time?
