Missing Polish Jewish Person: Heniek WAJSLER #general

Michael Lipiner <mlip6@...>
 

Hello,

I am searching for a friend's missing brother.

Heniek WAJSLER was born in 1942 in Kamyk, Poland and given to a Christian
Polish family near Czestochowa for safekeeping. In 1946, he was given to an
orphanage near Czestochowa, which unfortunately burned down since. All of
this information and records was registered by the Central Committee of
Polish Jewry.

The boy's parent's names were Josef and Renia WAJSLER (WEISSLER).

I would appreciate any information as there is a very good chance that this
person is still alive in Poland or anywhere else.

My friend, Rosi, would like to find her long lost brother whom she never met.

Thanks,
Michael Lipiner

MODERATOR NOTE: Please provide any personal contact information privately.

Kitchener Camp #unitedkingdom

Robert Fraser
 

Dear Friends - a few weeks ago, I asked if anyone had
up-to-date knowledge of what, if anything, remains of
Kitchener Camp near Richborough in Kent.

Of those few who responded, none could offer this knowledge.
Indeed, they asked me about the camp, questions I can't
answer. They supplied websites and email contacts, all of
which I know already, and have used.

In any case, I plan to visit the 'site' in June 2016. If I
find anything worth reporting to the List, I will do so.
And I'll take photos of anything worth photographing.

Re: Researching a business in NYC #general

Ira Leviton
 

Hi Cousins,

Marge Goldin asked about researching a business in the 1920's or 30's in New
York City. She doesn't think it was incorporated.

You can check if it was incorporated in New York State by doing a search at
http://www.dos.ny.gov/corps/bus_entity_search.html. However, I believe spelling
has to be exact, so be persistent unless it's a business name that's hard to
misspell. If it wasn't incorporated, then the best I can suggest is searching
in newspapers. I don't think tax records would be kept this long (N.Y.C.
Department of Finance or New York State Department of Taxation and Finance),
although if they owned the building, records of a real estate sale might be kept.

Upcoming Jewish Genealogy Events at the Center for Jewish History in New York #general

Moriah Amit
 

Family History Today: Events at the Center for Jewish History
15 West 16th Street (btw. 5th and 6th Aves.) New York, NY 10011
November 1 - December 14, 2015
~~~~~
The Center for Jewish History's landmark Ackman & Ziff Family Genealogy
Institute will showcase its vast resources and host expert speakers on
specific genealogy topics throughout November and December in an ongoing
event series called "Family History Today." Whether visitors are just
beginning their family history searches or are expert genealogists, all
are welcome to join in the following free programs.
~~~~~
2015 Final Events:
Tuesday, December 1, 6:30pm
JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial Registry (JOWBR) and the Importance of
Jewish Burial Records Jewish headstone inscriptions and burial records can
provide crucial information to genealogists. Hebrew name inscriptions, based
on patronymics, can link together two generations of Hebrew names unlike any
other source document. This can be especially helpful when trying to link
first generation American ancestors to their European families. Through
photographic examples and case studies, this event will discuss how the
information and symbols found on stones can help to create your family tree.
Nolan Altman, Vice President for Data Acquisition and Coordinator of the
Online Worldwide Burial Registry project for Jewish Gen, will be the featured
speaker.
Free and open to the public. Reservations required:

Jewish Populations in Europe, 1750 - 1950: Maps for Your Research With the
frequently changing borders of European countries in the 18th - 20th
centuries, it can be a challenge to understand the locations of Jewish
communities of interest within those countries. On behalf of the International
Institute for Jewish Genealogy, Sandy Crystall developed a series of digital
maps that show the populations of as many as 700 Jewish communities, along
with the contemporaneous boundaries of countries and smaller administrative
units (provinces), serving as snapshots of the geopolitical context of Jewish
demographics over the course of this tumultuous period. This presentation will
provide information about the creation of these digital maps and how they can
be used to assist in genealogical research. Sandy Crystall has a
post-baccalaureate certificate in Geographic Information Systems and has been
an amateur genealogist for more than 25 years.

Seeking Bertha FRANK geb BODENHEIMER family #general

Dan Bodenheimer
 

Does anyone have any ideas on how to track down more information about
Bertha FRANK geb BODENHEIMER who was born Waibstadt, Germany on 21 Jun
1887 and died in Israel on 2 May 1970. She is my second cousin thrice
removed, so if she had grandchildren, they would be 4th cousins of my
father's that we don't know about.

I'm looking for her husband and any children, grandchildren, etc. I
also don't know her mother's maiden name. Her parents were Isack and
Johanna Bodenheimer.

Many thanks,
Dan Bodenheimer
