(Canada) Library and Archives Canada Opens Newly Designed Website; Digitized WW1 War Diaries #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Library and Archives Canada (LAC) opened its newly designed website on
September 24. The reason for the change was compliance with the federal
standards of accessibility and to improve access to people with
disabilities.

Under the first green tab (on the left) labeled "popular topics" the first
topic is Genealogy and Family. Topics on Immigration and Censuses are also
within popular topics. Clink on the link to access those items. The most
requested records include birth, . marriage, death records, census,
immigration and military records. To go to the newly designed website, click
on: http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/Pages/home.aspx

LAC has also digitized World War 1 War diaries. The Canadian Expeditionary
Force (CEF) units were required to maintain a daily account of their
"Actions in the Field". This log was called a War Diary. The diaries'
database includes information from: CEF infantry, artillery and cavalry
units, Brigade, Division and Corps commands and support units such as
Railway and Forestry troops. With the exception of two diaries, the database
does not include documents relating to the Royal Canadian Navy or Canadians
in flying corps. There is a helpful aide to searching these diaries which
may be accessed at: http://tinyurl.com/mqhkx4y

Intro - researching REICHE family from Schnellfortel in Gorlitz, Silesia, Prussia #germany

Jewel Kay <jewelkay@...>
 

Hello GerSig,

I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for about 40
years off and on. I consider myself to be a beginner in doing German Jewish
Genealogy research although I advanced my status recently through the IAJGS.
I live in Dripping Springs (near Austin), Texas, USA.
My native language is English know some German (klein bischen).
I consider myself advanced in using a computer. My experience in using
the Internet is extensive.

I have identified the names and birth and death dates of 4 of my
grandparents, 8 of my great grandparents and 13 of my great great
grandparents.

My primary research goals now are to find out about my great-grandmother
Henrietta REICHE's family in Prussia and my great-grandfather Abraham
ALEXANDER's father, also in Prussia. I may have a solution to the latter if
I get help reading the Hebrew part of some family gravestones.
[Moderator note: http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ ]

My JGFF Researcher ID number is 489896.
The family names and ancestral towns that I have entered in the JGFF
(JewishGen Family Finder) are Henrietta REICHE >from Schnellfoertel (o umlaut)
in Landkreis Goerlitz (o umlaut) in Schliessen in Prussia.

Abbreviations in La Liste de Saint-Cyprien #france

Irene Newhouse
 

One of my relatives was interned at Saint-Cyprien. A cousin was able to
confirm this for me in the book La Liste de Saint-Cyprien. In the
alphabetical list, the entries end with abbreviations, and I didn't know
enough to ask my cousin to find out what they were. Does anyone know what
s. d. D. stands for? That's what's at the end of my relative's entry.

Thanks!

Padalska-Padalska #ukraine

Hi,

Does anyone have an idea of a town in Padalska-Padalska? A distant cousin
insists that is the name of the town on his great grandfathers document. My
best guess using the search on the SIG site and the professional researcher
I am working with is that it is Kamenets Podolski/Kamieniec Podolski. I want
to help my cousin. Is there such a town called Padalska-Padalska? Thank you.

I know this post is 15 years old but I couldn't resist writing
when I discovered a connection to my family here.

Abraham Kopelovic and Frida Wiezel were my great grand parents.
Their children adopted their mother's last name to avoid being captured
on WWII by the nazis. Of the 4 children, only Moshe-Leib remained with
the Kopelovic last name, he died in the Holocaust along his parents
(this is the story I've been told by my family):

My name is Jonathan, son of Abraham Wiesel, son of Katy and Shmuel. Shmuel
was one of Abraham Kopelovic and Frida Wiezel children.
