Searching for VICTOROW family from Riga #latvia

fibf@...
 

Hello.
I am looking for any remnants of my grandfather's family, VICTOROW, from
Riga. He( Boris Victorow) appears on the 1911 passenger manifesto of the
New York bound sailing ship " America" .Upon arrival at Ellis Island,
his name was changed " VICTOR".
He never talked to either his children or grandchildren about any other
family members, and I am curious to know if any of his family also came to
America, or shared the tragic fate of Riga's Jewish population during the
holocaust.
Thank you for your help

Menachim Yehuda GALAS #lodz #poland

Debbie Long <d_long@...>
 

Dear Friends,

Yesterday, I received a stunning piece of information >from the
International Tracing Service. My uncle, Menachim Jehuda GALAS,
apparently survived the Holocaust.

Jehuda, my mother's beloved brother, was born in 1920. He was in the
Lodz Ghetto; then deported to Skarzysko-Kamienna, then Buchenwald. He
stayed in Buchenwald until April, 1945, and then was apparently deported
to Terezin.

Terezin was liberated in April, 1945, but I do not know what happened to
him or others liberated >from this camp.

I have a friend looking for Menachim in Israel using Israeli phone
directories, and I wrote to the National Archives in Prague yesterday.
Of course, if Menachim Yehuda is alive, he would be 91 years old... but
perhaps he has/had children. I have checked the Yad Vashem
database--nothing.

Do you have any suggestions as to where I could turn for more help? The
Terezin Ghetto website and other resources do not suggest what happened
to the prisoners after liberation.

Thank you for any help or suggestions you can provide.

Translation Help Needed Please #hungary

Hello All-

I again throw myself on the mercy of all of you who are Hungarian speakers
(or at least readers) as I have posted on ViewMate the following:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/image_approved/15067Kivonat-r.jpg

As Mr.(Mrs.?) Google says that Kivonat is Hungarian for extract I think this
is an extract of the birth record of my paternal grandmother's sister Malvin
Lazar who emigrated >from Nyirvasvari, Hungary to the U.S.A. in 1921. I
would again be most grateful for any and all assistance in translating this
document. Many thanks in advance.

Cheers,

SCHULTZ/SZULC #lodz #poland

Mike and Tarrin <mike.tarrin@...>
 

I am looking for information relating to Samuel Schultz and wife Esther,
from Ozorkow, Karlish, Poland. They had a son, Simon, who moved to Hull,
England in the late 1800's and then emmigrated to the US in 1906. Simon
listed his parent's names on a naturalisation file as Samuel and Esther
however I have been told that Samuel Schultz was Szmuel Szulc in Ozorkow.
Szulc seems to be a common name and I am having a hard time finding any
info. on those two individuals. Ideally, I would like to go a generation
beyond Samuel and Esther and would also like to get a bit more info. on
their lives in Ozorkow. I have found lists on sites such as JRI-Poland,
however there are so many variations on both first and last names that I am
unable to figure out which, if any, would be the two I'm looking for. If
anyone is connected to this family and/or has additional info. for me, I'd
appreciate it!
