Shalom,

I was pleased to see that during April, quite a few of our "veteran" and
newer Yizkor Book projects made great leaps and bounds in the translations
and pictures that were added in during this month. Some of the projects are
now just a hairsbreadth away of being completely translated and this has
only come about through the perseverance and dedication of the coordinators
involved in them and, of course, the generous financial support of donors
and the selfless, conscientious volunteers behind the scenes. Still, to
continue this sacred work we are always in need of further financial support
and if you are able to assist in any way to one of the 75 or so Translation
Funds appearing at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
you will have done your piece in helping present generations and those to
come, to read and learn about our lost communities.

Something that also pleased me greatly was that Joel Alpert, the Yizkor Book
in Print Project Coordinator, recently informed me that the 37th Yizkor Book
in Print publication - the "Stawiski Memorial Book" has now become
available. My thanks go out to the YBIP team that made this possible and to
Jan Meisels Allen for leading this project >from its inception to this
publishing stage. Joel also pointed out that it is now three years since the
Yizkor Book in Print Project first began rolling out these unique books and
remarkable achievements have been achieved over this time for this, another
round of applause is definitely forthcoming to his team.

Now to facts and figures for April.

LONG AGO POSTING FROM 1996 FOR FRIEZE / GOLDSTEIN FAMILIES #unitedkingdom

Ann Rabinowitz
 

Today, I received an inquiry >from Carole Davies from
Leeds about a posting I made to JewishGen in 1996 as follows:

Anyone having any info on the FRIEZE or GOLDSTEIN families who came from
Kudirkos Naumiestis (formerly Vlodislovov) or Sakiai (formerly Szaki) in
Suwalki Guberniya now Lithuania , please let me know. I am posting this
for someone who is not on the Internet.

Immediately, I was struck by what an historical matter this was as the posting
contained the first email address I ever had with Prodigy which no longer
exists. It was typed on one of the first computers I ever had which was
a second hand one that had been given to me by a friend >from work.

The computer had been the result of research accomplished by genealogy's
very own brilliant Stephen P. Morse, the father of the 8086
processor. I remember that the computer finally crashed forever
and I lost all of my e-mails and therefore anything relating to the posting.
I did not have Family Tree Maker genealogy software back then either or I
could have turned to it for help in responding to Carole Davies inquiry.

It reminded me how many people back then were not on the Internet and
depended on family and friends to assist them in posting their inquiries
to JewishGen. Now, the rules of JewishGen Moderators do not allow posting
for others. I can see why as the name of the person who really wanted the
information is not provided in my posting and therefore will remain a
mystery after all of these years.

In those years, I often posted for Holocaust survivors who were searching
for their families >from Lithuania and wanted to reconnect . . . perhaps this
posting was for one of them. The posting was made in March, 1996, which
was just after I would have attended the Annual Litvisher Luncheon, an event
which Holocaust survivors >from Lithuania attended in great numbers and which
no longer occurs.

In addition, as I type this posting, I will add the LitvakSIG digest to the
recipients as this will direct the information to individuals, who most
likely will have an interest in the shtetls and families >from there mentioned
in the posting of so long ago.

So, Carole Davies, daviescarole@sky.com, I am sorry I cannot help you this
time, but perhaps since the world of genealogy has enlarged so much since
1996 you will get an answer to your inquiry and someone will respond to this
posting!!!!

Good luck!!!

Finding contact for Wolko Goldenberg from Teofipol #ukraine

Marilyn Levinson
 

Dear Jewish genners
I have found an ancestor who is listed on the New York Passenger lists
1820-1957 line 21 as Walko Goldenberg who is >from Teofipol Ukraine. This is the home of my
great grandmother whose maiden name was Miriam Goldenberg. I need help
in reading the name and address of the person to whom Walko is going.
I also wonder if any one might take a guess at what the "real" first name
of Walko might be. Could it be Wolf or some variation of Malkie? Wolko was
traveling on the Hamburg line so whomever was putting down his name I
imagine spoke German. Thank you for your help.

Shipping Lines and manifests #ukraine

Rachelle Litt
 

Hi Genners. You have all been most helpful with past questions so here
is another. What shipping Lines should I be focusing on for emigration
from Soroca Moldova, Chernvitzi Ukraine to Argentina in the early
1900's - about 1930? Most of the family who came to American went by
way of Bremen through Warsaw. Would this be the same for Argentina?
The ship might have might have passed through Brazil first. I am
looking for Meyer Znayde and his wife Tsilya and their children Samuel
and Sarah (there was a third child also but I do not have the name)
.After living in Argentina they left for Brazil and arrived in Brazil
landing at the pier of Santos in 1936. I am looking for this manifest
as well. Sarah was born January 26, 1923, that is the only birthdate I
have. Thank you all in advance for your help.

Search for BEDIL Family in Kopenhagen, Denmark #general

Ann Rabinowitz
 

Recently, I found a previously unknown brother of my grandfather whose last
name was BDIL. The BDIL family came >from Kupiskis and before that Skapiskis
and lived in Vilnius too. The brother and his family left Lithuania in the
late 1800's for Kopenhagen, Denmark.

Would like to access online records if there are any in Denmark. It would be
great to learn if there were any living descendants of this branch of my
family who survived World War II.

Alien Registration & Laissez-Passer Documents #unitedkingdom

Madeleine Isenberg
 

Hi All,

I'm a relative newcomer to this SIG although have participated in at
least 3 others (H-SIG, Gesher Galicia, Czech-Austria SIG). In
actuality I am British born, but live in California, so I hadn't
thought too much about some of the issues I have been reading about,
but I think I need some help or suggestions on where to find
information.

My grandfather, born in Kielce, Poland, Israel Khanyshkevitch (not
exactly certain how this name was spelled, but this seems to be how it
was written) arrived in London sometime in 1912. While he was quite
intelligent, could do tons of arithmetic in his head, and could read
Hebrew and Yiddish, he never learned to read or write English. My
grandmother and three children arrived about a year later. My mother
was their fourth and last child and the only one born on British soil.
The family name changed to Schakovitch (or Shakovitch) and was further
shortened to Sacks, at least by the children. Legal name changes were
found in the London Gazette, and my mother even told me she changed
hers via "Deed Poll."

I'm not sure if the inability to even read English would have
prevented my grandfather >from becoming a British subject. My
grandmother did learn to read English on her own.

So here are my questions:

1. Would my grandparents have been required to have "Alien
Registration cards?" If so, at what time? Before WW I or WW II?

2. In the late 1950s, I believe my grandparents traveled to
Switzerland for a grandson's wedding. How would they have obtained
"Laissez-Passer" documents to travel, if they didn't have passports
and where would they have obtained them?

3. For both of the above, to whom or >from where would I have to
request copies of such documents?

Thanks in advance,

Holocaust by Bullets adds sites #general

Tony Hausner
 

Some of you may know of the work of Father Desbois, a French priest who has
been visiting the sites of many of the mass killings in Eastern Europe,
Russia, etc. He has performed memorial services at these sites and interviewed
older residents who were witnesses. His center is Yahad - In Unum. His book is
"Holocaust by Bullets." I have heard him speak several times and he is an
inspiring person.

They have recently added a Kalush page and will add some of the pages below in
the near future. Borschov has been there for awhile.

(Spain) Spanish Lawmakers Approved Law Giving Descendants of Inquisition Rights of Dual Citizenship #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

On June 11, the Spanish Parliament passed legislation granting dual citizenship
to descendants of Sephardic Jews who fled during the Inquisition. Potentially,
3.5 million Sephardic Jews who settled in across the world may apply for dual
citizenship although it is estimated that only 90,000 people will apply. The
law becomes effective in October 1, 2015. The previous law >from 1924 permitted
Sephardic Jews to become citizens but they had to give up their previous
citizenship. The new law permits dual citizenship. Having a Spanish passport
permits the holder the right to work and live anywhere in the 28-Member
European Union.

Applicants will have to have their Jewish heritage vetted by the Spanish
Federation of Jewish Communities or by rabbis where they live - they do not
have to be practicing Jews. In addition, applicants will have to pass tests
on Spanish or Ladino languages, Spanish culture and prove they have a
connection to modern day Spain (i.e. donating to a Spanish charity or buying
Spanish property). To apply, interested parties will have to go to Spain at
their own expense. The requirements for application are similar to those of
anyone applying for Spanish citizenship, unlike Portuguese law, which became
effective this Spring, which only requires vetting of applicants ancestry
by Jewish organizations

The law will expire after three years. The website of the Federation of
Jewish Communities in Spain has a detailed explanation on how to file the
application see: http://www.fcje.org/nacionalidad-3/ (scroll down the

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen (Spain) Spanish Lawmakers Approved Law Giving Descendants of Inquisition Rights of Dual Citizenship #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

On June 11, the Spanish Parliament passed legislation granting dual citizenship
to descendants of Sephardic Jews who fled during the Inquisition. Potentially,
3.5 million Sephardic Jews who settled in across the world may apply for dual
citizenship although it is estimated that only 90,000 people will apply. The
law becomes effective in October 1, 2015. The previous law >from 1924 permitted
Sephardic Jews to become citizens but they had to give up their previous
citizenship. The new law permits dual citizenship. Having a Spanish passport
permits the holder the right to work and live anywhere in the 28-Member
European Union.

Applicants will have to have their Jewish heritage vetted by the Spanish
Federation of Jewish Communities or by rabbis where they live - they do not
have to be practicing Jews. In addition, applicants will have to pass tests
on Spanish or Ladino languages, Spanish culture and prove they have a
connection to modern day Spain (i.e. donating to a Spanish charity or buying
Spanish property). To apply, interested parties will have to go to Spain at
their own expense. The requirements for application are similar to those of
anyone applying for Spanish citizenship, unlike Portuguese law, which became
effective this Spring, which only requires vetting of applicants ancestry
by Jewish organizations

The law will expire after three years. The website of the Federation of
Jewish Communities in Spain has a detailed explanation on how to file the
application see: http://www.fcje.org/nacionalidad-3/ (scroll down the
page for the English translation). At this time there are no instructions on
how to file the application.

Hi Genners.
You have all been most helpful with past questions so here
is another. What shipping Lines should I be focusing on for emigration
from Soroca Moldova, Chernvitzi Ukraine to Argentina in the early
1900's - about 1930? Most of the family who came to American went by
way of Bremen through Warsaw. Would this be the same for Argentina?
The ship might have might have passed through Brazil first.

I am looking for Meyer Znayde and his wife Tsilya and their children Samuel
and Sarah (there was a third child also but I do not have the name)
.After living in Argentina they left for Brazil and arrived in Brazil
landing at the pier of Santos in 1936. I am looking for this manifest
as well. Sarah was born January 26, 1923, that is the only birthdate I
have. Thank you all in advance for your help.
