David M. Fox <davefox73@...>
 

For those of you with an interest in history and culture of Belarus, you
might be interested to know that there is an English language version of a
website with links to a number of the different museums in Belarus. These
included the Belarusian State Museum of Great Patriotic War History, which
opens its own web-site to mark the 61st anniversary of its foundation. The
Internet resource aims to preserve and promote understanding of life during
the war years among young people. Testimonials of Belarusian people?s deeds
are documented along with other documents >from WWII and photographs of
relics such as military uniforms, weapons, household goods, military maps,
posters and newspapers. A calendar of the Great Patriotic War?s
commemorative dates and information on its participants and heroes is also
available. The site is to be further improved and visitors are able to add
their own comments. To see, please visit the following address:

You may not be able to find the newspaper on line but you could certainly
write to the North Bend Oregon newspaper directly if you know the name or to the
North Bend Library if you do not know the name of the newspaper. Give them
your relative's name and ask them for a copy.

BTW North Bend is on the coast and nowhere near Bend.

We are getting so used to doing things online that we may forget that we can
write letters or make telephone calls.

Success - Family found after 80 years of searching! #general

Mark Budman <budman@...>
 

Dear Friends:

I would to thank everyone for their assistance in locating my SEGAL
(SOLOMIN) relatives. With the release of the 1920 Canadian Census, the
assistance of the Jewishgen community, and a lot of luck, I managed to
locate my late grandfather's first cousin's family.

I myself have been searching for 10 years for the family directly connected
to Solomon Segal, who once lived in Toronto, Canada (190-1921) before
completely disappearing. I have letters dating back to 1926 searching for
him and his family, and because of the generosity of people involved with
JewishGen, I managed to located them in LA.

Of course, just by dates, Solomon Segal is no longer alive, but his
daughter-in-law is living in the LA area.

It is truly incredible to blindly call someone up, and explain that you are
a lost relative, especially when the person on the other end never knew of
any extended family. They thought everyone was killed in the holocaust. I
have been able to send pictures containing individuals >from both families.
The joys and happiness of this event is overwhelming! Words cannot explain
the feelings. It was truly a memorable experience.

I would like to thank everyone. Words cannot express my gratitude. Without
you this never would have happened. Without the contribution and existence
of Jewsihgen, I would have never located these people.

Once again I would like to thank everyone for their input and assistance.

Happy Hanukah and all the best to everyone!

Best Regards,

Mark
