I have found a few Margit Kleins and have some possibilities to follow
up on, but I also found one Margit Bartok with the exact same date of

Istvan and in a Reform cemetery.

Sarah Silberston <sarahsilb@...>
 

I've posted a photograph of four female relations, and would appreciate
help identifying two of the women.

The woman at the top is my paternal grandmother, Cisse/Tzipe LENZ
(born Buczacz around 1887, died London UK 1938). The woman on the
right is her sister, Chaya LENZ (married name SCHWARZ). Does anyone
recognise the other woman and girl? One may be another sister, Sara
Lea MORGENTHAL (married name ROCK, born around 1870). Their
parents were Israel Majer MORGENTHAL and Freude LENZ; I've found
records with either surname used.

Stefan Leader asked about "a trip to southeast Poland/Galicia in August
1915. Would welcome any information that would help me plan such a
trip, i.e., genealogical research opportunities and resources, potential
guides, researchers, tour groups, etc."

There is an excellent writeup >from Alexander Dunai in the Fall 2013
Avotaynu publication... the International Review of Jewish Genealogy.
In this article ("Shtetl Travel Through Ukraine") he explains what
research you should do ahead of the trip about your family and towns,
how to prepare, payment options, travel time, where to stay etc.

In the same issue he also delves into "Archival Resources in Western
Ukraine 1918-1939."

Have a great trip!

Hi All,
I am doing genealogy work on my paternal great grandfather's side of the
family. In doing this work, I have come across something that is real sad.
I might have found my great grandfather's brother is the listing of the
Shoah Victims on YadVashem.org. My great grandfather was CHULSKI,Zelig. He
was the only member of his family to come to the US and we know nothing
about his family. The person that I found on the Yad Vashem website was,
CHULSKI, Gershn Hirsh. They were both born in the same town of Rybnitsa. I
am attaching the form completed for Yad Vashem, which is in Hebrew. I would
like, if possible, a complete translation to English of this form. I would
like to contact the great grandson of Gersh Hirsh Chulski to find out if
this is indeed Zelig's brother.

This can be found at the following address:

Please answer through ViewMate.

Thank you for any help that you might offer.

This is very interesting to me. My grandmother and mother would make a snack of grated turnip (or white radish) and onions, mix in a little salt and pepper and oil. Eat it on a cracker and it was pure delight. And, yes, the family was >from Ukraine.

As to the garlic clove rubbed on the heel of rye bread, well, sprinkle it with a touch of kosher salt and I was (and still am) in heaven.

Eisig and Sarah (PICKHOLZ) BAAR had three children in Jagielnice (east Galicia, near

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen JGS of Maryland November 23 program #general

Susan Steeble
 

"Finding a Family's Town: A Case Study" and
"Beyond Ancestry.com: It Isn't All Online!"

Please join us at the November program of the Jewish Genealogy Society
of Maryland, which will be held on Sunday, November 23, 2014, from
1:30 to 3:30 p.m., at the Pikesville Library's meeting room, 1301
Reisterstown Road.

Lara Diamond will give two mini-talks:

1) She will first present "Finding a Family"s Town: A Case Study,"
which describes how she was able to find her ancestors' town of
origin -- which was quite far >from where family lore had placed it.
Finding that town enabled her to trace that branch back to the
mid-1700s.

2) She will also present "Beyond Ancestry.com: It Isn't All Online!"
and will show some examples of documents not available online -- which
often tell the best stories of family members. These documents include
old court records, land records, Eastern European census records, shul
journals, newspapers, and more.

Lara Diamond is currently Vice President of the JGSMD and will take
office as President of the group in January 2015.

The program is free for paid members and $5 for non-members (applied
to membership fee when a visitor joins JGSMD) after their first
meeting. Refreshments will be available. Please check our web site at
www.jgsmd.org for late updates and for the time, location, and program
of future meetings.

German SIG #Germany New book "The Holocaust in Slovakia" by long-time GerSIG member #germany

tom.venetia@...
 

<tom.venetia@...>

Dear GerSIG friends:

Presenting to the Jewish genealogical community my recently published book:
_The Holocaust in Slovakia_, featured in 2 volumes.

"The Holocaust in Slovakia" is an historical essay, the result of 7 years of
research and writing, which includes testimonies of Slovak survivors as well
some of my personal recollections (as a deportee to Terezin).

Volume 1 is now on sale at Lulu (http://bit.ly/SKSBv1). It contains 407
pages (8.3" x 11.7" trim, perfect-bound paperback), is richly illustrated
with 340 photographs, maps and tables, displaying a very differentiated
layout, unique to history books - you can visualize and read a full chapter
here: (http://bit.ly/SKSBchp8), where you can also evaluate the contents of
both volumes.

Volume 1 is of interest to Holocaust researchers in general but in
particular to those who study their families in Germany because several
chapters expand on analyzing how medieval Jew-hatred and modern
anti-Semitism spread in the Austro-Hungarian Empire (Habsburgs era) and
throughout the 2nd Reich, then after WW1 and until the outbreak of WW2.

Volume 1 also fully covers the story of Germany's defeat in WW1, the
ill-conceived peace treaties (Versailles in particular), the humiliations
the Allies imposed on Germany, Austria and Hungary and, finally how this
political sightlessness allowed an insignificant individual like A. Hitler
to ascend to the highest headship of Germany's governmental hierarchy,
unleashing the terror that resulted in the Shoah's catastrophe.

Volume 2, to be released briefly, fully covers the story of what happened to
Slovak Jews >from 1938 until 1947. It contains 492 pages (same trim of vol.
1), 360 illustrations and several appendixes. Over 30 survivors' testimonies
consubstantiate the drama of this tragic narration.

Although volume 2 covers mainly what happened in Slovakia, the part that
describes the harassment, impoverishment, brutalization, and finally the
deportation and murder of Slovakia's Jewry replicates to tiniest details the
methods invented by the Nazis; Hence, these chapters could also be of
relevance to GerSIG's members.

Note: This is a one-time announcement of a product which may be of interest
to Ger-SIG members.
