there's a reason....and it's a financial one. In business there needs
to be a financial reason to fund a project; otherwise you will soon go
out of business. The archives are opening up all over the world...why?
altruism? i dont think so. The archives have discovered a way to make
themselves self-sufficient, by charging for access to the documents.
There are plenty of archives, usually public ones, which are open free,
in full or in part, to the public. To take a few examples - the Commonwealth
War Graves Commission, Canadian National Archives, National Archives of
Australia, The London Gazette. These are available on the Internet. Some of
these and others can be visited personally where sight of the archives is free.

I did not know the statistic below about Denmark; thank you. Quite a

because of popular resistance to German efforts at departation.

Denmark was the only country to actively resist the Nazi attempt to deport

Manchester, Eng. Rabbi whose mother was a GAISINSKY from Stavishche #general

Lisa
 

I am searching for a rabbi and his family >from Manchester, England (or some
say London) whose mother's maiden name was GAISINSKY / HAISINSKY and whose
maternal grandfather was Rabbi Yitzhak Avraham Gaisinsky >from Stavishche,
Ukraine. The younger rabbi settled in Manchester as a youngster in the early
1920's (or possibly earlier) and although I am uncertain of his name there is
a significant chance that it could be one of the following surnames: TANICKI,
CZARNE, FISHEL or SPEKTOR. The Manchester rabbi may have been born in a town
outside of Stavishche, as his mother and aunts probably married into other
rabbinical families >from nearby shtetls. I am researching the grandfather of
the Manchester rabbi and I am assisting a friend who is related to him who would
like to discover more about this lost wing in his family which settled in
England.

If anyone can help please respond privately.
Many thanks

Old photos of non-relations #general

Robert Dodell <RADodell@...>
 

I have old photos of my grandfather. Many include friends >from college
years (1920s). No one in the family has any idea who they are. I have no
need to preserve them, but I don't want to discard them either.
Suggestions?

Re: Travel to Belarus #belarus

J. Rothstein <jr483@...>
 

Hello everyone,

I would have to agree with Frank. I just came back >from Belarus and I had an
amazing experience visiting the shtetls my family came from. Just walking
the streets of the shtetls takes you to a different world and understand the
region, the way of life, the living conditions all takes you back a century
and helps you understand why your ancesters left. I highly recommend the
trip and will be sending out a description of my experiences after the
holidays. I would also suggest that you get in touch with Yuri Dorn, the
director of the Religious Communities of Belarus, based in Minsk, who can
help you with your trip. My amazing trip could not have been possible
without him. When I send out my full description, everyone will understand.

All the best,
Yehuda “J.R.” Rothstein

I don't know how many there are but scan them and upload them onto an
Internet album, and then you can provide the link to anyone you want to
look at it - that is if you don't want to actually make it public.

Then you can store them away and also salve your conscience that you
are not hiding them away for noone to see.
