Fargotsztejn survivor of the Shoah #poland

goldbergm@...
 

While in Israel this summer, I went to Yad Vashem to try to follow
up on information I found through JewishGen. Although the staffer in the
research room went to retrieve the records for me, Yad Vashem closed for
the day before I was able to get the records.

Two questions arose:

1. While waiting for my turn, I saw a 1939-40 Warsaw phone book.
It listed H. FARGOTSZTEJN, a lawyer living at SW Krsyska 30. In my own
research, I have not seen an H. Fargotsztejn in Warsaw, or Mariampole
and Prenei in Lithuania who would have been alive at that time. Yad
Vashem had nothing else on him. A Chaim Fargotsztejn son of Ephraim and
Ester was born in 1903 in Radon. Ephraim died in Warsaw. Any
suggestions as to how to find this person? I did have relatives in
Warsaw but they came to the US or died long before the Holocaust. I do
know the descendents of Ephraim's brother who came to El Paso TX and
then moved on to Memphis TN.

2. In the Radom Prison Records and in the Hungary Claims
Conference list (the gentleman explained that each country had its own
claims conference, but for some reason they were lumped under Hungary),
I found ROMANA FARGOTSZTAJN, born in 1910, and her daughter MERY (MARY)
FARGOTSZTAYN, born in 1933. Under code 293, they were both "authorized
to enter Palestine." Yad Vashem said the request was made in 1965.
Their pre-war address was Szwarjik Street in Radon. At Yad Vashem I was
told that her second husband (no first name) was LUDWIG FASTMANN who
survived and lived in Poland in 1947. It appears that Fargotsztayn (no
first name) was her second husband. Since the fellow did not reappear
with the document, I don't know how he came to that conclusion. Perhaps
her second husband was Chaim or H. At Yad Vashem, the researcher found
that Romana had a sister on Allenby Street in Tel Aviv by the name of
BERTA ROZENFELD. Does anyone know Berta?

I also contacted the Central Zionist Archives' Family Research Dept.
when I was in Israel. They are supposed to have databases about people
who immigrated to Palestine/Israel between 1919 and 1974. I asked them
about information regarding FARGOTSTEIN but they didn't seem to quite
grasp what I was looking for.

Any help in connecting the dots would be appreciated.

Reducing excess email from genealogy sites #lithuania

Peggy Freedman <peggyf@...>
 

LitvakSIG shares information several ways - thru our public website
at www.LitvakSIG.org, thru this digest,which is hosted by JewishGen,
and thru Shutterfly sites that are only available to paid members
of LitvakSIG and contributors to most district research groups.

LitvakSIG, JewishGen and Shutterfly are independent organizations
that cooperate around shared goals.

However, controlling your email is an independent function, not a
shared goal! You can control how often you receive messages, but you
must set each site individually.

To control your email >from this discussion group,
Go to http://lyris.jewishgen.org/ListManager
Log in to JewishGen
Edit your MAILING LIST preferences

To control your email >from Shutterfly sites,
Log In to Shutterfly
Highlight MEMBERS on the top menu bar
Click on EDIT MY SETTINGS
Click on the EMAIL >from SITE tab
Change your settings - there are many of them, read each checkbox to
see how you want it set
You must click SAVE to make the changes permanent.

For our generous donors whose contributions take them to more than one
Shutterfly site, I am sorry, but I believe that you have to set each
one individually. If you are a LitvakSIG member, a donor to the Vilnius
group, and a donor to the Kaunas group, you have to go through the steps
three times, once on each Shutterfly site.

Hope this helps cut down on excess email.

Jews in the Franco-Prussian War #germany

Michael Rubin
 

I have a reference to the specific regiment my G-G grandfather served
in in 1871 and would like to explore that regiment's war record further
(including any listing of personnel, of course). Assuming such records
still exist, how can they be accessed and are there records which might
be specific to Jews who served?

Missing digests from JewishGen during last week #germany

We apologize for the problems delivering digests >from JewishGen and

Help JewishGen and Receive Tax and Income Benefits #ciechanow #poland

Groll, Avraham
 

Dear Friends,

We are pleased to announce that JewishGen now offers Charitable Gift
Annuities (CGA's), which offer you the ability to earn guaranteed
income for life (along with tax benefits), while supporting JewishGen
at the same time.

CGA's are easy to setup, and particularly in today's economy, offer
much better returns than a money market account, or investing in
stocks.

Here is how it works:

1. You make a contribution to JewishGen of $10,000 or more.
2. You receive a tax deduction the very same year.
3. You earn guaranteed income for life, with significant tax benefits.
4. Payments are sent to you every quarter.

That's all there is to it. There are no legal fees or lengthy paperwork
to complete. It is truly a great way to earn money while also supporting
JewishGen in a significant fashion.

Listed below is a sample of the return rates based upon a $10,000
donation and a person's age. This far outpaces most options currently
available on the market.

A. 60 Years Old - 4.40%
B. 70 Years Old - 5.10%
C. 80 Years Old - 6.80%

To learn more, and to receive a personalized (no obligation)
illustration of how this could work for you, please contact me at
646-437-4326 or email agroll@....

Thank you in advance for your support of JewishGen's important work.
