1938 Vienna Names #general

Kaplan <vkaplan@...>
 

I was interested to see the list of names regarding confiscated assets
in Vienna, 1938. On the list are two names on Klosterneubergerstr. My
family had a store, confiscated by the Nazis at 73 Klosterneubergerstr.

The family name was Karpel. My grandmother, a widow, was remarried and
her name was Johanna Kohn at the time. If anyone has information or
knowledge of the family or events of that time, kindly reply. Also, has
anyone been successful to date with claiming restitution >from Vienna
regarding these looted assets?

Their home was on Lichtensteinstr.

Please write to me at: vkaplan@...

Thank you

Lodz surnames from PSA project online! #poland

Late 19th Century Records for the City of Lodz
Polish State Archives Project - Status Report

Dear Fellow Lodz Area Researchers,

We are very pleased to announce that a list of Lodz surnames, created >from
indices to Lodz marriage records >from 1878 to 1890, is now online!

See: <http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/psa/lodzsurn.htm>

These indices were obtained as a result of the Lodz Polish State Archives
Project (the effort to obtain indices to late 19th century Jewish records of
the city of Lodz and 37 area towns that were NOT microfilmed by the Mormons).
This data has never before been available to the public. Indexing of the city
of Lodz marriage records is the first phase in this massive effort! The next
two phases will include the indexing of Lodz birth and death records >from
1878 through 1898.

The surnames list was created and is being made available in advance of the
indices being added to the JRI-Poland database.

Once the JRI-Poland data entry team in Warsaw completes transcripton and data
entry of the balance of indices to Lodz marriages, >from 1891 through 1898,
more surnames will be added to the above-mentioned page. The indices to all
Lodz marriages >from 1878 through 1898 will then be released to the JRI-Poland
database, ready for you to search! We hope to announce the availability of
these indices very soon

This is a very promising beginning to the Lodz Polish State Archives Project.
However, the continuation of this project will only be possible with the
support of those interested in assuring its success. Without this support,
the indexing of the city of Lodz birth, marriage and death records may not be
completed. To date $2,480 has been raised of the required $6,500 budget, so
we have along way to go to meet this goal. Please consider a donation today.

For more information about the Lodz Polish State Archives Project and to find

Ida KRASHINSKY, who was originally >from the same Russian community, and
went back to Russia with her. They came back to America in 1921.

My grandfather, a laundryman in Brooklyn on Chester Street, lived on

Society. I think it was originally >from the same group in Russia. In
Brooklyn, the Society was affiliated with their "shul" on Sterling Place

Everyone >from the Chevra Ein Jacob Society is buried in their plot at

Does anyone have any information about this society or know what the

BENDETSON Family #belarus

I am trying to get any information on my ancestors >from Grodno.
My Great Grandfather was Zelig BENDETSON and was a carpenter.
My Grandfather was Zavel BENDETSON, also a carpenter who was
born in Grodno probably in the 1880's. He married Frieda PINCUS,
a tailor's daughter. She died in her thirties at the start of the
War. My father Sam BENDETSON (Shmuel) was born in Grodno in 1902.
I have discovered several BENDETSONs in the U.S. but can't find
any link.

Russian words #belarus

Jonathan Ogur <jmogur@...>
 

I'm transcribing a taped interview of my grandmother, Edith LEVINE OGUR.
In it, she talks about her childhood in Samokhvalovichi, occasionally
using what sound to my untrained ears like Russian words to describe
particular objects or people. Here's how these words sound to me, along
with their apparent meaning:

zalopey vossi = golden hair
hopta = stove
clergnik = clergyman
haneh = store
fieress = unheated room or shed attached to a house

Can anyone who knows Russian help me with the correct transliterations
and translations?

Thanks.

JewishGen's Millennium Gift to Newbies #hungary

Carol Skydell <skydell@...>
 

To the Hungarian Sig

As we have always done in the past, JewishGen is here to help... and this
time our gift is in the person of Phyllis Kramer, knowledgeable
genealogist, super teacher, patient, supportive, and most important willing
to do an online Introduction to Genealogy Course as JewishGen's way of
saying thank you to all those who have supported us financially within the
past year....

Phyllis' course will cover all the basics....all you need to know to get
started and to keep going to find that ever elusive bit of information that
somehow got a little tweaked in the family lore we all believed until we
got into research <grin> (like grandpa's name was changed at Ellis Island
from Shoin Fagessin to Sean Ferguson)
Okay...let's get serious. This is going to be a 12 session course
(possibly adjusted to meet the needs of students) paired to a private
discussion group for course participants only. We're using a similar model
to that which we set up for Mark Heckman when he taught folks how to create
web-pages and then held a question and answer session until everyone was
comfortable to go to the next step.

All your research "how-to" questions will be answered, you will be guided
through learning how to research census records, passenger manifests, vital
records, all the myriad records that make up the arrows in the genealogist
quiver.

The course is slated to begin on or about the first week in February. You
will get a course outline as we get close to the start date.

Now, here's the caveat....this class is open only to those people who have
made a financial contribution to JewishGen within the past year. If you
have not done so, and this course looks like it might be the answer to your
prayers...and more importantly your questions <grin> before you send in
your subscribe e-mail go straight to
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/ and make a contribution of at
least $25 for the year.

If, on the other hand, you are current in your support and you want to
subscribe to this course here's how:

address an e-mail to listserv@... and say

subscribe genintro-2000 <your first name> <your last name>

You will be getting back a request for confirmation, just hit the reply
button on your e-mail program and it will come back to us.

It will take some time for verification that you are in fact current in
your support....you will be notified by e-mail that you are
subscribed....don't write in asking about it...we will get back to you as
soon as possible.

If there are any questions about this course, please direct them to
