Thanks, Jan, for alerting us to the nice upgrade.
I would like to add that in addition to the "categorized" websites,
Cyndi's List also includes 9372 websites which she calls "uncategorized"
at this point. This group of uncategorized sites goes back to 2005
and includes sites that can be just as important to our research as
the "categorized" ones. My own website has been on the "uncategorized"
list since August, 2010 and I have noticed other important sites there
as well. While I don't understand the difference between "categorized"
and "uncategorized" for some sites and how and when one gets moved >from
one to the other, I would recommend that anyone who wants to check
new sites, go to both the uncategorized list and the newly added sites list.

Searching: BARAS #general

mdiaplus2003
 

I am trying to help an elderly Israeli friend to determine the fate of her
brother Yisrael Joseph (“Utchi”) Baras, born in Tet, Hungary on 3/27/28. He
survived Auschwitz, Dachau, and other concentration camps. Yisrael Baras
lived in Montreal in 1948-51, moved to Toronto in 1952, and then lost all
contact with his family. It is possible that he may have left Canada for
Detroit, Chicago, Philadelphia, New York or New Jersey.

We would be extremely grateful for any assistance.

(UK) - Preliminary publicity: New exhibition in Manchester #general

Click onto the link below to see full details of the moving exhibition
telling the story of The Boys - the 300+ boys and a few girls who
were air-lifted >from Prague at the end of the war, and brought to
Calgarth near Windermere in the Lake District.

The website has several "pages" of background details, photographs, and
the story of how The Boys adapted and built new lives for themselves
in Manchester, London and other parts of the UK.

http://www.anotherspace.org.uk/a2a/

Since visiting the exhibition in its infancy at the Windermere Library
in October 2010 and then again at the end of last year, we have been
working very closely with Mr Trevor Avery who has set up the
exhibition, to bring it to Manchester. In the meantime, what started
as a small local (temporary) exhibition, has now grown to a big
permanent exhibition with the help of Heritage funding and the
Manchester launch will take place on Wednesday, 27th July.
The exhibition will be on temporary display at the United Synagogue, Meade
Hill Road, off Middleton Road, Manchester M8 4LP and full details will
be sent by e-mail. There will also be a press release nearer the
time.

This is a "must see" for everyone and it is impossible to put into
words the impact it had on me and other committee members the first
time we saw it.

LEVINSON, Herman Joshua Hessel from Goldingen #general

Martha Lev-Zion <martha@...>
 

I finally got ahold of the naturalisation record in King County,
Washington, of Herman Joshua Hessel LEVINSON, >from Goldingen, Courland.
According to it, he arrived in the USA on the 4th of March 1904 and made
application for his naturalisation on 19 Sept 1910. There was a note
that the date listed as the date of entry was actually the date of his
emigration >from Hamburg, Germany. Nonetheless, by just entering the
year, I have been unable to locate his manifest on the Ellis Island
Database. Knowing how totally fouled up the transliteration of names is
in that database, I suppose I shouldn't be surprised. Perhaps I wasn't
creative enough to think of enough variations of mistaken
transliterations, but I just cannot find his entry. Can anyone help?

Many thanks in advance!

records of weddings Uzbekistan after WWII #general

Adrian Freedman
 

Dear Friends at Jewish Gen :
Would there be any records ofJewish weddings in Uzbekistan or
Tajikistan >from the period after world war two?
Two sisters originally >from Poland were refugees in Tashkent during the war.
They married two refugees >from Poland via labour camps in Archangel(?)
The name in Uzbekistan where they married was some-thing sounding like
("fahadshey")
The nearest similar sounding name I found was Dushanbe, but anything
is possible.
The names are
Rivka/Raia EIDELMAN married Moshe HERZBERG Married 12th June 1945
Fanny/Fania EIDELMAN married Baruch IGER Married 12th June 1945

Sincerely

Adrian Freedman
