I would like to urge all those h-siggers who have a trip planned to =20
Hungary between Mid-may and mid July to try to attend a commemoration =20
event; if one is not taking place in "your" town then perhaps one =20
nearby.

I will not dwell on the support you would be providing to the local =20
Jewish community; the current situation in Hungary has been documented =20
in several newspapers in the West. The message that people far away =20
care enough to attend and have not forgotten the deportation and =20
murder of half a million Hungarian Jews is very powerful.

>from the genealogical perspective, I cannot emphasize enough that =20
with boots on the ground and an open heart an attentive mind, you are =20
guaranteed to discover things you could not possibly have found on the =20
internet or in North American Archives(not that these sources are not =20

>from being there and talking to people I have been fortunate to gain =20
or sometimes confirm information that I could not have received in any =20
other way. I have also made many friends and acquaintances. And there =20
likely will be people attending a commemoration event whom you would =20
not meet on a regular visit to a town.

So whether >from a Holocaust remembrance or genealogical perpective, =20
this year or next, the value of attending such an event cannot be =20
over-emphasized.

Search for the Surname GEWIS in Lemberg/Galicia #galicia

Mario Weidner <m-weidner@...>
 

Dear members of the Gesher Galicia SIG,

I am looking for the origin of the family of my wife. The name of
the family is GEWIS. They lived in Gablonz / Neisse (today
Jablonec nad Nisou in the Czech Republic) until 1945. Family
records indicate that they came >from Constantinople / Istanbul.
But my recent research has shown that the earliest known Jewish
family members came >from Lemberg / Galicia to Constantinople /
Istanbul between 1831 and 1857.

We know about a "Joseph Eliser Gewis" (or Gewiss). He was born
in 1826 in Lemberg. He married 1857 in Constantinople. His
wife was named "Betty de Juda Papier", born 1831 in Lemberg.
Joseph GEWIS seems to have been a member of so called
"chambre de Commerce de Constantinople" in 1891.

My questions are:
- what are the sources of information I can use for further
research?
- are there any special databases or books with names of
Jewish inhabitants of Lemberg?
- are there any old lists of dealers or traders of Lemberg or
Galicia?

best regards
Mario Weidner

CJH Digital Collections #poland

I've been looking for the book "The Margolis Family" for a decade,
it has lots of info about my Myszkowski ancestors who married into
the Margolis family, but it's out of print. I've had a standing offer
to buy it used via Amazon for $100 -- I even had someone ship it to me
once, but it got lost in the mail. Very frustrating.

Then, last night, I found it digitized on the website of the Center
for Jewish History (CJH), and I was able to download it in PDF format.
For free.

Some of you are probably already familiar with this wonderful resource
(I'll bet it's been written up in this group, and I missed it), but I
wanted to make sure that everybody knew about it. It appears to include
tens of thousands of digitized books, and it looks like there's no charge
to download any of them. Maybe you'll find something as valuable to your
research as "The Margolis Family" is to mine.

Hi all-

I finally found a bunch of vital records, but they are all in Polish.
I have uploaded them to Viewmate and I am hoping that some kind soul can
help me to translate them into English. You can find them on Viewmate here:

The first two are the first and second half of the Kolski-Jakubow marriage
certificate. The third and fourth are the first and second half of the
Amber-Paris marriage certificate. Sorry I had to break these into two
pieces....The last one is Rafal Hersz Kolski's birth certificate.

If possible I would like a full translation. Truly grateful for any help.

Need help identifying young man's uniform #lithuania

Danielle Weiner
 

I have uploaded an image to ViewMate that I would like some help with.
It is a passport application photo of my father at age 13 c.1921/22.
It appears he is wearing a uniform but I have no idea what kind of
uniform it might be. I am pretty sure the photo was taken in Vilna,
where he lived. Can anyone possibly help identify his clothing?

It is image #18849 on ViewMate. Here is a direct link to the image.
