Dear Anna:

The BIALYGen website is a good place to showcase and tell a story about
your old photos of ancestors >from the Bialystok area. We would be happy
to help you create a webpage that would be part of our Photo Album
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/bialygen/Photo_Album.htm.

This offer applies to all BIALYGenners with photos, documents, a story,
and a desire to share these with others.

Hi
I am looking for some tips on where to send photos taken either before
or just after the war. They are of my late grandmother's family,
ZACHAREWICZ, Malka >from Zawady (Lomza). She had some family in
Tykocin,
Bialystok and also Strenkowa Gora. The quality is not great as I have
taken a photo of the originals.

thanks
Anna Ryan

The 1928 Poland and Danzig Business Directory, "Ksiega Adresowa Polski (wraz
z w. m. Gdanskiem) dla handlu, rzemiosl i rolnictwa," is freely available
online at the Digital Library of Wielkopolska's site
http://www.wbc.poznan.pl/dlibra/docmetadata?id=11209. This 2779-page
directory is primarily organized by place, then by business type, then by
surname or business name. To facilitate searching, I have applied optical
character recognition (OCR) software to the Digital Library images and
incorporated the result into my Search Engine for Online Historical
Directories at http://www.kalter.org/search.php, as I recently did for the
1926/1927 and 1930 editions of this directory. When searching, please keep
in mind that OCR is not 100% accurate, so you still might want to manually
search the directory, especially if you are only interested in a few known
small towns. To improve your chances of success, I encourage you to make
use of all three available methods of searching. An explanation of how to
access the scanned directory images at the Digital Library site can be found
in the FAQ on the Search Engine site.

If you find this tool to be helpful, please let me know.

Please realize that an initially high response may slow the Search Engine.

Re: Article about Jewish War Cemeteries in Western Galicia #galicia

Dear Genners,

Let me express my gratitude to Eva Floersheim for bringing to our attention
the interesting article at www.muzeum.tarnow.pl/judaica/jewish.html

I'm wondering if somebody was able to find a list of Jewish soldiers buried
in those 400 war cemeteries around Western Galicia. Many of us tried
unsuccesfully to get such information >from the Kriegarchiv in Vienna, but
they only seems to keep record of officers.

Looking anxiously for some piece of data

Re: untapped source: memorial boards and other synagogue records #general

Kudos to Matt Friedman for setting down in print and distributing his
worthwhile ideas. For the past year, I have been privately discussing the
very same sources, namely yearly synagogue memorial books, as well as their
weekly lists and monthly newsletters, as superb sources of Jewish family
names.

I personally have a dozen such items relating to Beth David Congregation in
Miami, Florida, and Temple Beth Am in Los Angeles, California. I hereby
volunteer my services.

publish a yearly Yizkor pamphlet for Yom Kippur.
Frequently it lists families and who they are
remembering. Many times those who have died since the
previous Yom Kippur are listed first. Synagogue
bulletins also list recent deaths and yahrzeits for
that month. (births and marriages too) Combined these
resources ar very rich..................
the rest of the document was snipped to save space.

Prushim is a group of early Jerusalemites, who came to Israel >from eastern
Europe about 200 years ago. They were primarily followers of the Gr"a, the
Gaon of Vilna,who were ardent non (or anti) chassidim.

One of the major Burial societies in Jerusalem, if not the largest is the
society affiliated with this group. The family which runs the society is
called GELBSTEIN and the phone# is: 5384144 ( >from outside of Israel

BONVALET is an old French surname that was known already in the 17th
