There is no H in Russian. G is often substituted. And a Russian G often
becomes a Heh in Yiddish. Looks like Hamburger was the original name. It's
always worth looking at names in Eastern Europe whether replacing G by H, or
Heh by G, might not make more sense.

Re: Munkacs now Mukachevo, Ukraine #general

Today I was given a bit of information I would like to check with others.
In Munkacs, Hungary, >from about 1936 to 1944, there was an area called Jewish
Street.
Is anyone familiar with this? Did the street have another name too?
My great grandparents Leopold KATZ and Raizl WEISS-KATZ and their sons
Abraham/Adolph KATZ, born 1882, and Phillip KATZ, born 1895, lived at Jewish
Street.
I don't know if other members of the family lived there also.

Thanks to everyone for your time and help.

experience and interests.

We will accept program proposals until December 31, 1998. Program proposals

Re: Harbin China #general

West24th <west24th@...>
 

When interviewing an elderly aunt, she suddenly remembered as a young girl
hearing about a great uncle & his family going to Harbin China around the
1920s. She doesn't exactly rember which family name it was, but probably
TEPLITSKY, MALLAMANT or BERG. They were >from the area of Mogilev Podolskiy in
the Ukraine. The only other thing about the family remembered is that they had
a daughter who later went to study music in San Francisco USA. if any of this
should sound at all familiar to anybody please e-mail me directly. Thanks for
any suggestions in hunting this branch down.

Help with Naturalization #general

Foodphile@...
 

I've been very lucky at the FHC here in L.A., to receive information from
some very knowledable and giving people who have taught me so much about
taking advantage of the extensive information available to us. I've just
spent two days in SLC and realized that there is so much more I don't know.
Being part of this list also makes that clear on a daily basis. Rather than
post and ask for lookup favors, I would like to learn how to accomplish this
myself. I would very much appreicate it if someone would contact me directly
to answer some specific questions, procedure for finding Naturalization Papers
being only part of what I'm looking for. Thanks very much.

Concentration Camp Liberations #general

Drosner@...
 

/
I received a piece of information about family members yesterday that says:

"Died of Typhus, 1943, at (unreadable) Camp, the camp was liberated just a
few weeks later"

And also that her son, age 3 at the time was found at liberation and taken
first
to Sweden. I believe that this person now lives in Zurich, and I am
trying to track
him down...

However, my question is Which camps were liberated in 1943 (or very early
44)?
I thought the camps didn't get liberated until late 44 and into 45.....

Anyone have a chronological list of camp liberations?

Re: Good old fashioned research #general

Dear Mr. Gross,
YOU ARE TOTALLY WRONG.
My mother and I spent fifty-three years looking for any survivors of her
family, Gottesdiener of Poland, without success. We wrote every
organization you mention and I even joined a genealogical grouop. Nothing.
She died ten years ago and I am keeping my deathbed promise to continue the
search.

Last week someone told me about this website.I put on an inquiry. I had
more than 40 personal responses with lists of names and addresses of
possible Gottesdiener relatives in Krakow, Germany, London, Israel and the
U.S. The names are still coming in. I am in the process of writing
everybody and will keep jewishgen posted. Already I have found a very
distant cousin. I have had more responses in less than a week than in more
than half a century.

Do not, I pray you, discourage anyone >from using this marvelous internet
vehicle as a means of BOTH genealogical finds and relative reunions. The
people on this discussion group are among the kindest, most erudite and
helpful I have ever known and I am a senior citizen.

additional Yizkor Book Project entries #belarus

Subject: Translation Project is one year old
From: Martin Kessel <mkessel@mediaone.net>

It's hard to believe that it has been only one year since we put our first
Yizkor Book translation on the web. October 6, 1997 was the date we
annouced the translation of Ivano-Frankivsk (Stanislawow) chapter from
Pinkas Ha-kehillot. Today we have 41 translations online, and 10 more are
in hands of our four HTML volunteers -- giving us more than 50 translations
in our first year. Most of these are documents that were never previsouly
available to the English-speaking world. A heartfelt congratulations to
Joyce Field, our tireless Translations Manager, who has kept us on track,
pushing donors, copyright holders, translators, volunteers, and myself to
keep up with the her pace and make this material available as quickly as
possible.

Today we put three new translations online:

- Nuremberg, Germany - database of Victims of Shoah >from a forthcoming
book published by the Nuremberg City Archives. Described in detail a
separate announcement >from Joyce.

- Delyatin, Ukraine - unpublished list of Soviet citizens of Deliatyn shot
by German-Fascist invaders, >from documents of a Soviet Commission for the
investigation of military crimes 1944-46. The fifth of a series of lists
transliterated by Alexander Dunai and contributed by Mr. Dunai, Joyce
Field, and Susannah Juni.

- Krynki, Poland - Necrology >from Pinkas Krynki. The first of a number of
lists provided to us by Ellen Sadove Renck and the Grodno Genealogy Group.

In addition, Joel Alpert, has recently expanded two of his yizkor book web
pages:

- Dokshitsy, Belarus - now includes many translated chapters, in addition
to name lists >from Dokshitzy Yizkor Book.

- Kybartai, Lithuania - numerous photographs and facsimiles added to Yizkor
book translation.

All of our translations are accessible from
<http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/translations.html>. Our thanks to all who
have helped with this important work.
