Blaszki/Schwarzstadt #general

Br. Claude <brclaude@...>
 

An alternative name for Blaszki (a Polish town located on the road between
Kalisz and Sieradz) has come down in our family records as "Schwarzstadt".
The town had a large Jewish population >from the end of the 18th cent.until
WWII. There were also a good number of German Lutherans in this area, such
as the Gribnaus, my maternal great grandparents. They seen to have married
into a Jewish (converted to Catholicism) family named Janowski.

In any case, I noticed that Schwarzstadt is not given as an alternative name
for Blaszki on your web site. Perhaps the town was known by that name in
some Jewish family traditions, as well.

Blumenthal(Khrapun)from Lithuania #lithuania

,
 

I have recently recieved a copy of the 1874 (updated in 1894) census
of my paternal great grandparents family >from Vilkomir, Lithuania.
It has enabled me to tie up some loose ends and at the same time open
new doors. I had known of some of my great grandfather's children, but
have now found out that there were a total of 12, including a set of
twins.

Although the family name was Khrapun in Russian and Charpun in Polish,
all the family took the name Blumenthal upon emigrating to the US and
I have listed those that I know emigrated with that name. Here is the
information I have. I hope that someone recognizes a family member.

Kalman Khrapun (b. 1830) married Esther Katz. Their children were
Abraham Blumenthal b.1869 d. April 7,1943 Brooklyn Grisha Khrapun
b.1866 d. July 10, 1924 in Lithuania.Married Chaya Geffen.
These were my grandparents.
Osvey Khrapun b.1864 d.1897
Liebe Mendel Blumenthal b.1873. On many ship manifests he is listed as the
person many family members were going to. He lived on Rutgers St. NYC but I
have been unable to locate him on any census.
Benjamin Mendel Blumenthal b. 1873 twin of Liebe Mendel
Leyzer Khrapun b.1879
Shora Khrapun b.1860 married to unknown
Minka (Minnie) Blumenthal b.May 15, 1863 d. July 10, 1928 in
Brooklyn.Married to unknown Weintraub.
Zelda Khrapun b.1872 married to unknown
Bliuma Paya b.1872 died in Vilnus Feb.1, 1902 unknown whether married or not.
Khava b.1877 married to unknown
Fruma (Fannie) Blumenthal b.1886 d.Dec 17, 1942 in Brooklyn NY Married Sam
Rosen in 1910
The 1910 NY census has Fannie and Sam living with Benny and his wife in
Brooklyn. Also listed on that census is Abie Blumenthal b.July 1893
immigrated 1910. He is listed as Benny's brother.
There are also listings on the ALD for an Efroim and Kalman Khrapun whose
father is Osvey. I don't know if the Kalman listed is my ggrandfather
and Efroim his brother.

I have additional information on those who immigrated to NY. I hope some
of these names are familiar to someone and will help me make more
connections.

Grodner Yarnova #lithuania

Sharon Avraham <shouav@...>
 

Hi Listers

I have joined the Litvak list because I think that I have suddenly found
(although my mother always said that they were Litvaks), that my
ggrandparents are Litvaks. They were Rachel and Barnett Spitalsky.
According to an elderly cousin of my father's they came >from a place called
Grodner Yarnova, the only place I can find that is near this name is Janova.
Can anyone confirm to me that this is the same place? If not, has anyone
heard of this place/town/city/shetl. I could not find any Spitalsky's in
Janova, on the lists that are available. My ggrandparents were called
Eliyou and Annie (nee Mofsky) Spitalsky. Should anyone be able to help I
would be most grateful, with this information I actually made a breakthrough
in my research, I found where and when that Rachel and Barnett were buried!
According to my father's cousin they also arrived in England in 1892!!

Any help, information or comments, would be most most gratefully
appreciated.

Hug Samach to everything.

Re: Looking for Private Researcher in Lithuania #lithuania

You did not mention the shtetls your family was actually >from which would be
helpful.

I would suggest you try the following if you have not done so already:

1. Search the ALD and the JewishGen Lithuania Databases first. Much of the
records for Lithuania are already on the web for you or are in the process
of being translated.

2. Join any existing SIGs which are associated with your ancestral shtetls
such as the Rokiskis SIG which already have records too.

3. If you do not find what you require, then make a request of the
Lithuanian Archives to obtain records.

Phone communications in Russia #belarus

Boris Krantz <boris@...>
 

BlankI believe that I located a family of cousins in Siberia about one year
ago. I mailed a letter in English, including a Russian translation, to the
address in my possession.

The daughter of the family responded to me by email, and we actually
exchanged email two times. She explained that the email address is for a
friend, so it takes her a long time to see and to respond to my email.

However, for the past 6 to 8 months, I have had no response to my follow-on
email or conventional air mail.

Is there any one in the SIG, who speaks Russian and who could attempt to
make telephone contact? I would, of course, pay for all phone costs.

New Slovak Burial Records #hungary

Vivian Kahn
 

Thanks to long-time H-SIG supporter Bobbie Furst, JewishGen has pictures
fronm several additional Jewish cemeteries in areas of northeastern
Hungary that are now in Slovakia. Once translated, these records will
be added to the Jewish On-Line World Burial Records (JOWBR) database.
The transcribed records will also be searchable using the rapidly
growing All-Hungary Database.

Tomer Brunner has already transcribed inscriptions on 147 headstones in
the badly overgrown and abandoned Jewish cemetery outside of
Sobrance (SLOV-01311). I am reformatting Tomer's information into a
database that we may upload to the H-SIG website as soon as it is complete.

We need additional volunteers who can read Hebrew and have good
enough vision to decipher the following additional records:

SLOV-01312 Hriadky 13 images
SLOV-01313 Jablon Cemetery 22 images
SLOV-01314 Ubla Cemetery 2 images
SLOV-01315 Oborin Cemetery 12 images
SLOV-01316 Stara Lubovna 57 images
SLOV-01317 Stropkov New Cemetery 451 images
SLOV-01318 Vysna Rybnica 39 images
SLOV-01319 Humenne 357 images

If you can help, please contact Nolan Altman

need to have a JewishGen Volunteer Agreement on file.

H-SIG at the Summer Conference #hungary

Vivian Kahn
 

Dear Friends,

There's still time to take advantage of the reduced registration rate

for the IAJGS NY Conference. Check
http://www.jgsny2006.org/sessions.cfm for information about sessions.

In order for us to plan for H-SIG events at the conference it would
be very helpful to know how many H-SIGrs
will be attending the Hungarian SIG luncheon on Tuesday August
15,2006 (12:30 PM-01:45 PM). and annual
business meeting. We are still in negotiations regarding the
program for the H-SIG luncheon and, although
we cannot provide details at this time, expect that you will want
to join us once you learn about the program.
We do not yet have info about the day or time of the H-SIG meeting

but will let you know ASAP.

Please check the appropriate spaces below and let me know if you will

be at the conference and which meetings you plan to attend:

Yes, I will be at the IAJGS Conference ______________________

Yes, I plan to attend the H-SIG Luncheon on Tuesday, Aug. 15
________________________

Yes, I would like to attend the H-SIG business meeting
_______________________

In addition to the H-SIG events, the preliminary program includes
several sessions that will be of
particular interest to H-SIG subscribers.

--Hidden Treasures in the Libraries of Budapest: Andras Koltai will
describe little-known but
highly useful sources including collections at the Library of the
Jewish University (regional
publications and old
Jewish documents), Szab=F3 Ervin Library Budapest (Budapest collections

with old register
books, phone books etc.), and the Sz=E9chenyi Library (Jewish
newspapers >from 1880-1940)

--Transcarpathian/Hungarian Research and Travel: Archives, Villages
and Cemeteries: Alex
Dunai will talk about how town visits, documenting and restoring
local cemeteries, and
alternative sources of information on Jewish life in this region
such as land records and city
directories. He will also show what resources are available in
the towns of Munkacs, Uzhgorod
and Hust/Khust, where the ZAGS (civil records) office holds vital
statistic registers for numerous
villages in that county.

--Theresienstadt - The Town Hitler Gave to the Jews: Henry Wellisch
will focus on the history
of the town and the establishment of the ghetto that Germans tried to

use this place for counter
propaganda purposes. There are plans for including the showing of

a partially preserved
26-minute film that was made at Terezin. Tens of thousands of
Jews, many >from what is now
present-day Slovakia were incarcerated in this camp. Some records
have been saved and the
presentation will discuss the various sources available.

--Computer Training Workshop: Hungarian Research on the Web--I will
be leading a hands-on
session offering advice and tips about finding and using on-line
resources, some of which are in
Hungarian. . This workshop may be most helpful for those who are
beginning to research their
Hungarian roots but will also provide information that will be of
assistance to those with somewhat
more experience who may not be familiar with the wide range of
Hungarian resources the internet offers.

As mentioned before, we need your help to make all this possible. If

you're going to the conference
and want to help enhance the event for all of us with Hungarian
roots, please consider making a
special donation to the Hungarian SIG General Operations Fund.
Several people have asked if
they can request that previous donations be transferred to the
H-SIG General Operations fund to help support H-SIG at the conference.
The answer is yes, you can!

Some of the H-SIG accounts that
have funds to spare include the 1848 Census Project, the Memorial
project, the Sub-Carpathian Project,
and the Zemplen County project. If you donated funds to any of
these accounts and would like to make
them available to support speakers of interest to H-SIG members,
please contact me off-list.
For example, since there is no Sub-Carpathian Project at this
time, those who donated funds may
want to transfer donations to help Alex Dunai come to NY to offer
practical info for those of us researching
roots >from this part of pre-Trianon Hungary.

To take advantage of the $215 early registration rate for the IAJGS
Conference, your registration
must be submitted by May 15, 2006. This promises to be the
largest IAJGS conference ever and
rooms are no longer available at the Marriott Marquis at the
reduced conference rate. However,
after registering for the conference at you can still reserve a hotel

room at the New York Fifth Avenue
Courtyard by Marriott. Go to http://www.jgsny2006.org/hotel.cfm
for more information You can also
attend at the Conference at the daily rate available Sunday through

Thursday for $75 per day (no
syllabus provided). It is more economical to register for the
entire conference if you plan to attend
more than 3 days and once you take a look at the preliminary
program I'm sure you won't want to miss a day.

H-SIG has been experience unprecedented growth so I'm looking forward

to meeting many new "landsmen"
this summer as well as seeing lots of old friends.

Minden jot!

1941 Jewish Property Declarations in Croatia Available #hungary

Ed Zwieback <ezwieback@...>
 

In late 1999, I requested a Red Cross Tracing Inquiry for my cousin Hedviga
GOLDSCHMIDT, a holocaust victim last known living in Varazdin, Croatia. In
Dec 2000, I received a number of records about her, as collected by the
Croatian Red Cross. Included was a 7-page document titled "Form I,
Personal Data and All Belongings". This Ustashe document was required to be
completed by all Jews living in the "Independent State of Croatia (NDH,
Nezavisna drzava Hrvatska)". The copy that I received came >from the
"Croatian State Archives, Zagreb".

A good description ( in English) of this document and many other Croatian
holocaust documents can be found on the web site of the Center for Holocaust
and Genocide Studies, University of Minnesota, USA ;
http://www.chgs.umn.edu/Educational_Resources/Curriculum/Rep__of_Croatia/rep
__of_croatia.html

As an aside, the 7-page Form-I document that I have shows that the Form-I
has 13 numbered Sections, but un-numbered pages. Pages for Sections 3 thru
6 and 9 are not included. Perhaps they did not apply to my cousin, a
62-year-old married woman.

The Forward has an article <http://www.forward.com/articles/7624>

in so far as the matter is of interest to many of the participants of
