Help in getting started #ukraine

TaxTroll@...
 

Hi everyone. I'm new to the SIG and would appreciate any advice on
getting started in my Ukranian research. The surnames I'm researching
right now are LUTSKY and KANTROWITZ/KANTOROWITZ. Per my gg-grandfather's
US naturalization papers, the family emigrated >from Kiev ca. 1905-6 (don't
know if that refers to the city or gubernia). The LUTSKY name isn't very
common in the US so my US research has been fairly easy but now I have to
deal with a foreign language that I know nothing of. I do have Miriam
Weiner's Jewish Roots book for the Ukraine but it's a little bit of
overload right now.

Thanks for any help

Moderator's Comment: Well, for starters, you have come to the right
place. You can try our own website http://www.jewishgen.org/ukraine
and JewishGen's Info files at http://www.jewishgen.org/infofiles/
There are many more helpful websites listed on both of them. And I am
sure our fellow Genners will send you even more info!

Brazilian Ambassador Sousa DANTAS #germany

ystern@...
 

I'm searching for passports of Jewish emigrants who left Marseille in
1940-1941, containing visas issued by the Brazilian Ambassador Luiz
Martins de Souza DANTAS.

Most of the emigrants came to Brazil, but many others used the visas
to get to other countries, mostly to the USA.

Fabio Koifman, a History Professor >from Rio de Janeiro, recently published
a very interesting book about the life of the Brazilian Ambassador
Luiz Martins de Souza DANTAS, who served in France during the Holocaust.

DANTAS issued visas to hundreds of Jews in occupied France after the Nazi
takeover in 1940. He did this against strict orders >from the pro-fascist
Brazilian government headed by Getulio Vargas and at great risk to his
diplomatic career.

Several of the Jews who arrived in Brazil were detained by the Brazilian
government but were released later on. DANTAS was among the diplomats
sent to Germany by the Nazis in 1942. He spent 14 months interned in Bad
Godesberg.

These facts, still not very well known in Brazil, are focused on by
Koifman's book, which will certainly contribute to the acknowledgement
process of Souza DANTAS (as a Righteous Gentile) by Yad Vashem.

that the first letter is an "L"? Please reply privately. Thank you!

Help with locations in East Prussia/Lithuania #germany

I just got off the phone with a relative that gave me some interesting
information but nothing I can pinpoint. I'm hoping that you all can help.

My GG Aunt was supposed to be >from Hedecruk near Leipzig in East Prussia.
She met her husband, who's family were shingledeckers, when he was looking
at trees. His family was >from Tavriz in/near Kovno, Lithuania. My GG Aunt
always claimed her mother was German.

I've been unable to determine what communities they are referring to using
Shtetl Seeker. Does anyone recognize these shtetls? Also, when my GG Aunt
and her father arrived in 1904 (at Ellis Island), they listed Akrnauschken,
Germany as their last place of residence. Does anyone recognize this
location? Thanks for any and all help in advance.
