Bruce Wexler asked, "Is anyone aware of a Jewish Library that is to open in
Vilnius in 2011?"

A short Internet search turned up some interesting information. This looks
as if it will be quite a diverse library! See:

This will be a library to celebrate Jewish culture, and apparently anything
by a Jew, in any language, can be donated!

Goleszow (Goleschau)- Cement Factory Near Auschwitz #poland

Eden Joachim <esjoachim@...>
 

My cousin, Pierre (nee Ephraim in France) CHANOVER, a hidden
child Holocaust survivor, told me just yesterday, that he had learned
his father, Shlomo Yankel nee CHRZANOWER (k/a Jacques in France),
did not die immediately upon his deportation to Auschwitz on
Convoy #5 >from Beaune la Ronde, France on June 28, 1942.

Shlomo Yankel CHRZANOWER apparently was sent to work in the
Portland Cement Factory in or near Goleszow, Poland (Goleschau in
German). We cannot determine for how long Shlomo Yankel worked
in Goleszow before his death in Auschwitz.

Pierre would like to learn his father's actual date of death in order
to properly memorialize his father's death by saying Kadish. Pierre
was 9 years old the last time he saw his father, 68 years ago.

A Google search of Goleszow provides some basic historical
information but no specific documentation of workers as far as I
could tell.

Thanks for any help, information and insights,

Berlin - Minsk

My name is Martina Berner, I study at the Humboldt University of Berlin and I
take part in a project at the Institue for German History of the 20th century
(Prof. Dr. Wildt). In this project we are trying to research the biographies
of Jews >from Berlin who were deported >from Berlin to Minsk by the Nazis in the
years 1941 and 1942.

We are looking for relatives and acquaintances who can give information about
the lifes of these people. As I have already found someone through
JewisGen.org, I am very optimistic to get in contact with other descandants
too.

Please contact me and I will give you further information about the project.
We are grateful for any support!

GEVANER / GUVENIR #galicia

Mary Greenfro <Greenfro@...>
 

Hi,

I have been doing genealogy research of my Jewish Eastern
European relatives. Today, I found a document that lists my GG
grandmother in Dobromil, Austria/Poland. The document found
was a copy of my grandfather Samuel MORGENSTERN's death
certificate issued by the City of New York in 1932. He was 56
years old at the time of his death. His mother's maiden and
surname was listed as Mollie GUVENIR or GEVANER. Legibility is
somewhat unclear. I estimate that she was probably born
around 1850.

I have not found any information on the name GEVANER.

I "googled" the name GUVENIR and it appears to be a Turkish
word. I have been told that Turkish surnames were patronymic
and that the surname GUVENIR was not possible in Turkey
before 1920's.

Question:

Any thoughts about how a Jewish woman, in the 1850's, in
Austria/Poland, surname GUVENIR, could have been of Turkish
derivation or ancestry?

I would be very appreciative of your response.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Mary Greenfro

Radomysl landsmanshaft plots #galicia

There were two shtetlekh named Radomysl in western Galicia:

Radomysl / Radomysl Wielki / Gross (Big) Radomysl
- near Mielec

Radomysl / Radomysl nad Sanem / Klein (Small) Radomysl
- near Tarnobrzeg

In addition there was a town in the Russian Empire with that name:

Radomysl / Radomyshl - near Kiev

I'm trying to determine which Radomysl is associated with each of
these cemetery plots:

Bnai Jacob Anshe Radimishle
Washington Cemetery, Brooklyn NY - Section 3, Post 239

Chevra Bnai David Anshei Radamyshler
New Mount Lebanon, Iselin NJ - Block 5, Map #120

First Chevra Bnei David Anshei Radamyshler
Union Field Cemetery, Ridgewood NY - Block 15

If you have a relative buried in one of these cemetery sections and
know which Radomysl the family was from, I'd appreciate hearing
from you.
Thanks.
