Their son Marcel migrated to France around 1931.

Kamenets Name Lists #belarus

David M. Fox <davefox73@...>
 

One of our SIG members who recently returned >from a trip to Kamenets sent me
a few name lists >from Kamenets. One list is in typed Russian and has 240
entries and the other is handwritten with 276 entries. In addition to the
two lists of names, I also received a hand drawn >from memory rendering of
the Kamenets synagogue and a newspaper article (in Russian).

At present there is no ShtetLink page for Kamenets, but hopefully someone
will start one:
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/documentation/writing.htm?

If there is anyone with an interest in volunteering to translate the the two
name lists referenced above, please contact me.

If there is someone willing to head up a group of Kamenetz researchers or if
someone is already taking on this responsibility, please let me know.

I have no personal connections to Kamenetz and someone with a personal
interest in this shtetl needs to step forward to insure that data for this
shtetl is found, translated, and made available on the JewishGen Belarus
Database.

Attention Volkovysk Researchers #belarus

David M. Fox <davefox73@...>
 

For those of you with an interest in Volkovysk, I just received the notice
below >from the weekly newsletter >from the Belarus Embassy in Washington, DC:

National Bank Launches Memorable Coins Dedicated to the City of Volkovysk

The National Bank of Belarus (NBB) put into circulation on October 31 new
silver and copper-nickel memorable coins dedicated to the City of Volkovysk.

The bank had 2,000 ?proof? quality silver coins and 2,000 ?proof-like?
quality copper-nickel coins minted in Warsaw, Poland.

The head of the coin pictures a raised impression of Belarus? State Emblem
circled by a geometrical ornament. Below the image of the State Emblem is
the standard of alloy (for silver coins) and mint year. The tail of the
coins features the emblem of the city of Volkovysk. In the middle of the
coin there is an inscription ?1000 year?, and below there is a panorama of
the city.

Isadore Gans Lodge #general

Len Levin <llevin@...>
 

Hi Fellow Genners,
Does anybody know of a burial society called " The Isadore Gans Lodge"?
They apparently officiated at the burial of some of my American family at
the Washington Cemetery in Brooklyn. Some of the people were Meyer Cohen
(obit 1925), his son-in-law Simon Newman & his son Irving & his wife, Esther.
Is this Lodge still in operation, or does anyone recognise this New York
family? As a genealogist , one can but hope & try! Thanks Len Levin
