Kehilalink for Bilshivtsi #poland

Ken Entin
 

I am pleased to announce that the KehilaLinks website for Bilshivtsi,
Ukraine is live and ready to be viewed at
http://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/Bilshivtsi/ This town was known as
Bolshovtsy when it was part of the Soviet Union and Bolszowce when it
was located in Poland before World War II and Galicia prior to World
War I. Most of our ancestors living there knew the town as Bolszowce,
Bolshevitz, or one of its spelling variants.

The website is designed to be both a useful genealogical resource and
a meaningful memorial to the town's Kehila. If you have photos,
documents or any other information about the town or its Jewish
population that could be included in the website, please contact me.
I can be reached using the contact form on the home page or directly
via e-mail (silverado@pacbell.net). I look forward to hearing >from you.

BOOK CITE and Was the 30th of January observed as a school holiday in NS Germany? #germany

zeevr@...
 

A German language book was recently published in Weimar, Germany, by
the Geschichtswerkstatt Weimar/Apolda. The Title (in translation) is
"A Jewish Family in Thueringen - The unprecedented fight of a mother
for the life of her three children".

The authors are: Kaethe Raphael, Zeev Raphael, Peter Franz and
Udo Wohlfeld.

The book is the detailed story (268 pages) of the survival of those
three children. It may include much useful information for those that
are researching the subject of the fate of "Mischlinge", i.e.,
half-Jews in, during the period of the Holocaust.

Meanwhile a debate about a side issue has developed among the authors.

The question is whether it is accurate that the 30th of January,
the day the Nazis assumed power in 1933 Germany (known as the
"Tag der nationalen Erhebung"), was observed with "schulfrei", i.e.,
as a school holiday, during the years of the 3rd Reich.
Will anybody with information on this question please contact the
undersigned?

preserving genealogical work #general

Hanna Grossman <hannakg@...>
 

I have been doing genealogy for nearly 20 years and am now 83 years
old without an obvious inheritor of my work.

My Reunion data base covers over 5000 persons going back to 1700.

Since my family hails >from Germany the obvious place to archive this
material is Leo Baeck Institute. They tell me that they are delighted
to have my papers but have no interest in the digital data base.

The papers include dozens or hundreds of relatively insignificant
individual copies of government records ( citizenship applications,
social security application, etc) and interesting intellectual
products or historically interesting correspondence of a few of my
ancestors. Without the data base I see no way to relate these
documents to a family, nor any way to preserve all the genealogical
work I have done.

I have published a book but it covers at best a quarter of the
information which I have collected and noted in the data base.

I am perfectly happy to give Leo Baeck the individually or
historically significant documents, but need some entity willing to
archive these materials together with the data base.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

family named SLONIM #general

Jake Jacobs
 

Searching for information about Frank SLONIM and his family.
Arrived in the US 1900-1901. Settled in Duluth, Minnesota,
Wife identified in census as Sarah, children included Sorrell
and Joseph. Birthplace listed on census as "Russia," dob 1849.

Can't find in Ellis Island records, don't know origin beyond
"Russia." We're aware there is a town called Slonim in Belarus
and that is possible, but we have no knowledge or even
suspicion that he came >from there. Found a few entries in
Duluth city directories, but they provided no new information.

Suggestions welcome! Thank you.

Be advised that if you live near a Family History Center ( I believe
that "near" means within 15 miles) you cannot use this free service.

In response to Eli Brauner's comment, "Using the word 'Evacuation'
we should be aware that actually what happened was a miracle >from
the point of view of those Polish individuals...So it definitely
was not a forced evacuation." Thank you for adding additional
background for the reader. You should be aware that the use of the
term, "evacuation" & all of its derivations, was the direct result
of the translation of the original Polish title, as per Google
translator. ("Osoby wyewakuowane z Z.S.R.R.")

Re: Record lookup at Chambers st, NYC #general

Hello all
Mark makes reference to the Familysearch Duplication Service. I
have tried to use this service twice, seeking copies of NYC
certificates and other records on Familysearch, but never had
any success. The first time I got a reply saying the reference I
gave was incomplete, but I had used all the references given by
Familysearch and as I had asked for several certificates the
response was unclear and unhelpful. I dont recall any response
from the second try and it says not to chase them and its
automated and they will respond in six weeks. Not in my case....

Any tips on how to achieve a successful outcome? I am particularly
seeking paperwork about a marriage in New York, USA in 1905 (>from
memory) and a marriage in Norfolk, England in about 1700. I havent
found details about the English marriage anywhere else.

Many Thanks

Marriage in Bremen #general

Snillop47@...
 

I am researching a Jewish officer in the British Army killed in action in
1917. His headstone, erected by the Imperial (now Commonwealth) War Graves
Commission, carries a cross instead of a Magen David. It is possible to get
this changed if sufficient evidence is provided to convince the CWGC that
he was Jewish. One such piece is a marriage certificate which would state
under whose auspices the marriage was conducted and if in a synagogue would
be good evidence. In this case, while the family was British the parents
were married in 1873 in Bremen. And it is likely that the bride was not
Jewish, being born in a part of the UK where there was no Jewish community.
My question is this: is it possible to obtain a marriage certificate >from
Bremen? If anyone has any information I should be glad to have it.
Thank you.

I have posted two photos, a wedding party photo >from 1910 and a
birthday party photo >from 1919. All faces in the birthday photo
are identified. This web page also has a key that identifies many
people in the wedding photo. The 100-year-old birthday girl is
easily recognized as the bride's grandmother in the wedding photo.
Other people >from the birthday photo are certainly in the wedding
photo, but are unidentified. Can anyone skilled at "face matching"
please take a look at these photos to see if some unknowns in the
wedding photo can be matched to their counterparts in the birthday
photo. I can supply higher resolution photos and a key with known
faces blanked out, leaving only non-blanked faces to be matched,
for anyone who wants to attempt face matching. Thanks.
