Harry S. Ely #general

PETER HVIDSTEN <port.perry.star@...>
 

Hello

I do not really know where to start my research, so I thought I would
try getting in touch with any Jewish families who might have lived in
Toronto during the 1940s.
I am the publisher of a small town community newspaper in Port Perry
and have been researching for a book on local history for the past couple
of years.
In 1943, Mr. Harry S. Ely and his wife Freda purchased a small estate
island (7 Mile Island) on Scugog Island >from a Mr. A.R. Wilson.
I am told that during the war years, the Ely's made their estate home
into a refugee camp for a number of jewish children. I understand they
were smuggled out of Europe, but I can not be sure of this.
I have been told the Mr. Ely was a well known and resptect tailor with a
business in downtown Toronto, King St. I believe.
The reason I'm intersted in this is because part of my research is a
history of the estate known as 7 Mile Island, which was a secluded piece
of land with beautiful arched walkways, fountains, swimming pool and a
large house.
If anyone has any information about the Ely's, or could point me in the
right diretion to continue my research, I would most appreciate your
help.

Kindest regards

Re: criteria and links #ciechanow #poland

Harriet Brown <hnbrown@...>
 

Like Allan and others, I'd like to avoid too many links, preferring to
publish appropriate materials on our Web pages ourselves.

As far as criteria for publishing, Allan's list seems reasonable. I can't
see spending too much time talking about criteria; I'd rather spend the
time talking about (and making accessible to others) the information we
have. Common sense should rule here, I believe.

That said, if there's anyone in the group who objects to the idea of our
publishing the Eichmann testimony Allan has supplied, now is your chance to
speak up. We shall begin the process of publishing (or not) soon.

Thank you to everyone who responded to my question about Barge Office
arrivals. I had hoped that they would be separate records >from the New
York Passenger Arrivals since I have been looking at a brick wall for 1 1/2

I realized now that they are included. Thank you all for your help in
clarifying this.

Horadenka/Hadynkowce #general

Adelle Gloger
 

Dear JewishGen Community,

My husband's family claims that his father was >from Horadenka/Goradenk
a in Austria/Galicia. On his naturalization papers he gives his place of
birth as Hadynkowce. I beleive the Polish spelling is Hadyk=F3wka. Are
these the same place?

I have checked several search engines on the web, as well as JewishGen
Archives, Shtetl Seeker, and the JewishGen search engine and have come up
with nothing. The Shtetl Seeker had some possibilities using the D-M
soundex, but since I do not know where (exactly) it is located it was not
helpful. The only thing I have come up with is the Polish spelling and a
website in Polish; but I do not read/understand Polish. The JewishGen
Cemetery project did not have anything for this town either--unless there
is another spelling.

The JGFF (using the D-M soundex) lists only one person researching fam
ily >from this town.

Does anyone know exactly where this town is located and what resources
are available for researching the town and records ?

Thank you for any information you might have.
