Why put it online, in particular why blog? #general

Israel P
 

Since I began putting family information online (leaving out details about the
living), quite a few new branches of my families have fallen into my net. Generally
these are not folks who have a great interest in their roots, but are perhaps
people who in a moment of boredom google their own names to see what comes up.

For the past year, I have ramped up my online presence with a weekly blog,
allmyforeparents.blogspot.com . One of those blog posts, >from October, was
"Leo Pickholz - Secret Agent?" The only contact I had who actually knew him was
a retired intelligence agent in Florida.

I had birth records for Leo and eleven siblings, but aside >from one child
each >from two of those siblings, I had nothing.

Today I heard >from a man in London, who somehow had seen my post. His grandmother
was the sister born before Leo. He remembers his mother going to visit Leo in his
retirement in Lugano Switzerland. He himself knew others of the siblings - a singer
at La Scala in Milan, a soccer player at Rapide Vienna and others.

We are just getting started. In a few weeks, I'll blog about it. Count in it.

World War I Photos in the Baltics #general

Ann Rabinowitz
 

A fascinating look at what was going on during World War I in the Baltics when
the Germans invaded the area can be found on the following site:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/65817306@N00/128874131/in/set-486575/.

There are 175 photos of soldiers, bombings, towns, refugees, floods, and other
things which reflect what was occurring when the expulsion of our ancestors
occurred as they were moved further eastward out of the area. There is also
another link on the site which is located beneath this one which has the Baltics
and other places and has thousands of photos which you can peruse.

The photos show the damage to the towns >from bombings which our ancestors saw
upon their return at the end of the War. There are also aerial views of some
towns and even photos of the German Kaiser visiting Jelgava during the War.
Some towns mentioned are Bauska, Jelgava, Mazeikiai, Riga, Siauliai, Tartu,
Vilkaviskis, Wirballen, to name a few. Some of these photos show views of towns
which are quite priceless.

If you could help me translate a legal document, I would be most
grateful. My mom's uncle diedin the Holocaust (I believe), and this is a

would appreciate knowing the general substance, addresses and names and
relationships. ViewMate 25745-25746. Thank you!

FROMOWITZ FARKAS Bedo Bilovartsi Maramaros #hungary

fredsoph@...
 

Dear all,

I am new in genealogy and I am searching for Fromowitz and Farkas in Bedo
and Bilovartsi (Kis-Kirva) in Maramaros.

I was then able to find the date of birth of my grandma's grandfather,
Iczhok Jakob Farkas on 10 March 1868 in Bedo (Maramaros) son of Moszes Dovid
and Freida Leizerovits (source Romanian National Archives Baia Mare branch
Register Book 273 17-15.  I was able to find some brothers and sisters of
Iczhok in the Maramaros database.  I could not find the parents of Moszes
and Freida ??? but I based myself on Farkas genealogy of Bedo made by a
cousin. 
 
I am also interested on the ascendancy of Abraham Boruch Fromowitz,
Farmer/apple merchant in Bilovartsi (Kis-Kirva) born circa 1890 ?, father of
my grandmother, who maried Kreindel Farkas born also circa 1890 in Bedo.  A
cousin still living in Israel and in his 90s (linked to the Farkas side)
told Millie  Abraham Boruch's mother was called Nachama...That is the sole
information.
 
In jewishgen, there are Fromowitz births in Bilovartsi and Bedo.  But how to
connect and how to find ?  The source is always the Romanian National
Archives of Baia Mare branch Register book 273 for Bedo and 276 for
Bilovartsi (the village nearby Bedo) There is a Boruch Fromowitz and his
wife Tobe who had children Chaje Rechel (a girl) born on 18/05/1876 in
Bilovartsi (Register book 276 92-04), Gerson Zelig born on 26/03/1868 but
died in 1869 (Register abook 276 91-05)
 
There are other couples in Bilovartsi (Kis-Kirva) and Bedo at the same time:
 
Fromowitz Chaskel and his wife Etye Katz : Chaje Rechel (25/01/1877)
(Bilovartsi in Register book 276) Fromowitz Salomon and Chane ?????: Hers
(16/01/1870) (Bedo Register Book 273 94-31) Fromowitz Sloma and Lea Chave
15/02/1862 but died in 1869 (Bilovartsi and Register book 276)
 
How to connect and to know who could be the ascendancy of Abraham Boruch
fromowitz ?  I need help.  How can read and consult these Romanian registers
Baia Mare for Bilovartsi and Bedo ?

Can someone help with the Romanian National Archives Baia Mare branch
Register Book Registers 273 and 276 ? I do not speak or read Hungarian.
 
Thank you very much for your help and all the best,

Re: Bor Labour Camp #hungary

Take a look at the following article in English about the labour camp: http://bhiweb.files.wordpress.com/2011/12/summary2011-11-09.pdf
This is the English summary of a monograph byTamás Csapody on the subject (in Hungarian).

Bor was immortalized also by the poetry of one of its victims, Miklós Radnóti. See: http://books.google.com/books?id=sfA16HpTdbAC&dq=radn%C3%B3ti+bor+isbn

Family Search Photoduplication Service #galicia

Mark Jacobson
 

Hi,

Family Search has had a Photoduplication service for many years,
allowing anyone to obtain a photocopy of any record they have on
microfilm for $2 if you know the microfilm number, record title, name,
date, etc. of the record. Now they have changed this to a free e-mail
system. You can order up to 5 records a week for free through e-mail,
they send you a link to an online Family Search file storage site where
you download a zip file with your images at no charge. In your e-mail
you have to include your name and address along with the type of
record, LDS film number (obtained >from their online catalog
https://familysearch.org/catalog-search ), name of person(s) on
record, title of record, record number and date of record. This works
well for New York City births, deaths and marriages indexed on
http://www.italiangen.org/ or any record where you know enough
information to find the right microfilm. It should also work for LDS
filmed records indexed by JRI-Poland. This sounds like a good option
for Israelis who do not have Family History Center access. I did one
order and it took about 2 weeks to get the e-mail link to the copies.
Some of the copies are a little blurry and dark, but you can't beat the
price and all the records are legible. See here for more information
including the e-mail address to send an order:
