How to Access Mass. Deaths? #general

Carol Raspler
 

I need a Death Certificate for someone (evidently without Social Security
number) whom I believe died in Massachusetts between 1972 and 1990. Does an
accessible index exist for those dates? Or can I just write to the State
with the same general info I've given here
and expect them to do the research - for a fee? Thanks. Carol Raspler, Delray
Beach, FL

Re: Lask info #general

Seflaum@...
 

Dear Fellow Genners,

Miriam Margoyles asks if there is any JRI-Poland activity for the town of
Lask. There most definitely is: the Lask PSA project! This is the effort to
obtain indices to *all* Jewish vital records *not* microfilmed by the LDS /
Mormons -- usually >from the late 19th century. The JRI-Poland team in
Warsaw is currently indexing the Jewish vital records of Lask and we expect
completion in approximately two weeks. If your parents, grandparents or
extended family lived in Lask in the late 19th century, you will soon have
access to records you never before imagined possible.

When checking the JRI-Poland web site for projects involving your town,
always check not only the "Shtetl CO-OP" page, but also the "Polish State
Archives" (PSA) page. Go to
<http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/psa/psastat.htm>, click on "Status
Reports: PSA Projects underway!," the last line in the heading of the page,
which will take you to the PSA Projects page. The town of Lask is listed in
the "Lodz Archives" table.

The town leader for the Lask PSA project is Bruce Morgenstern,
<bjmorgenstern@erols.com>. If you have any questions, please do not
hesitate to contact Bruce or myself.

Regards,
Shirley Rotbein Flaum
Lodz JRI-Poland / Polish State Archives Coordinator

Thanks to Warren Blatt & Pamela ? who kindly replied to my query
about Lask. In case the info is useful to others, I reproduce it with
permission:

I can find no reference to any JRI-Poland activity for Lask, either any
current data, nor any formed Shtetl CO-OP... so you'll have to go to
the original archival data.

There are no records >from the Prussian period (1793-1807), but there
are records >from the Russian period (1808-1918) and the Polish period
(1918+).

The LDS have microfilmed the 1808-1825 Roman Catholic civil register
of Lask, which would contain the Jewish births, marriages and deaths.
LDS microfilms #808,461 and #808,462.

They've also microfilmed the Jewish registers, 1827-1869 (6 rolls:
#808,471-475, #767,128). The later 19th-century Lask Jewish
registers are at the Polish State Archives branch in Lodz, and
the 20th-century Jewish registers through 1939 are at the Urzad
Stanu Cywilnego (USC = Civil Registration Office) in Lask, all
unmicrofilmed.

Miriam Weiner's "Jewish Roots in Poland", pages 232-233 has further
more precise information about Jewish records of Lask.

(Va'ad Yotz'ei Tuchin v'Kripe in Hebrew) published a book in 1990 entitled
"The Jews of Tuchin and Kripa in front of their murderers," that contains
background information, 24 testimonies, and a Holocaust necrology that is
supplemental to the original yizkor book published in 1967. The book is in

is reason to believe that is still active today, or that some of its
members may be contacted. I agree with Jacqueline and especially appeal to
Israeli genners with any knowledge of this organization to post that
information to JewishGen. (BTW, the title page of the 1990 book gives an
address and phone number for "Moreshet" in Tel Aviv, on Leonardo da Vinci

Jewish Orphanages in the United States #general

HNOH Welcome-Jewish Orphanages in the United States at
http://www.scruz.net/~elias/hnoh is pleased to announce a special web page
was added to the site for the Brooklyn Jewish Orphanage, Pride of Judea
Childrens' Home. There you will find the history, alumni information, book
reviews for "An Orphan Has Many Parents", by Stan Friedland and Phill
Craft. A wonderful book about growing up in the Pride. There is also
photographs of the home.

Also the Jewish Orphanages Page was updated with additions and corrections
and a photograph was added >from the New Orleans Jewish Childrens' Home .

Sam George Arcus, an alumni of the Hebrew National Orphan Home, has just
published an historical and compelling book entitiled "Deja Views Of An
Aging Orphan". This book not only includes memories, but lists many names
of the children who lived at the HNOH. I have created an HNOH Book Reviews
page that contains many wonderful reviews of Sam's story.

There is now over 2,000 URL's listed for genealogical research on the
Jewish Genealogy Page and the Other Genealogical Resources Page.

If you believe you have had a relative in an orphanage in the NY area,
check out the Federal and State Census lists that are also on the site as
well as the Orphan and Foundlings Burial Page, where many names are listed.

There is much information to be found on my Orphan Archives: Records and
Holdings Page. The Orphanage Alumni Reunions Page has a section where
people are searching for lost friends, as well as a section of alumni
names.

SRRG Meeting #galicia

Lancy
 

March 18, SRRG'ers of Israel (Sukhostaw Region Research Group) got together
at Schelly Dardashti's with our coordinator Joan Baronberg who was visiting
Israel.

This meeting was a true success. There is a great difference
between e-mailing and meeting personally. We got the chance to
talk in a very pleasant, relaxed atmosphere, to exchange
information, experiences and informative material on our region,
and to build a more personal basis for future shared research.
Bless Joan for this initiative and Schelly for enabling it.

I am writing these lines to encourage members of other SIGs
living in the same areas to follow our example. I do believe that
such meetings advance our personal interest as much as Jewish
genealogical research as a whole.

LIPSTEIN - lost in war #general

m?boguslavsky@...
 

A friend of my grandmother asked me to post this message. This is a
translation >from Russian.

<< Before World War II, my mother, Frida Kagan (born Lipstein) lived in
Vilno, Poland. Her father's name was Meer or something like that. She
was born in 1900 and lived at Tropskaya street 8-6 or 6-8. Frida had two
daughters, Pesya (born in 1932-1934, it is me) and Hasya, about 8 years
older. She has been in contact with her relatives in New York and
London.

When the war began, Frida flew to Belostok with her daughters. I do not
know if she still had contact with her relatives at that time. In June
1941 I have been in a scouts camp near Grodno, my mother and sister
stayed in Belostok. The camp has been evacuated to an orphanage near
Penza; as far as I know, my mother and sister have been killed in a
concentration camp in Vilno.

May be, this story is for someone a story of his relatives.

So far, I have been unable to find any relatives. All I have >from my
previous life is memories and a piece of my cloth with the name
"Lipstein" written on it. This robe was a present >from my relatives.

In the orphanage, they have renamed me to Polina and changed my name
from Kagan to Krotova. They have preserved my father's name --
Issakovna.

Unfortunately, I can not access the internet by myself. Please, find me,
write me, if you can!

I am not sure that Polina can read in English. If you think that you
know something about her relatives or know how to find them, you may
write first to me.

I have also a picture of that cloth. I could scan it and mail on
request.

Hope to find someone!
