Jewish Genealogical Society of Buffalo (JGSB) Speakers Program, April 17th #general

Kathi Freudenheim
 

Speaker: Henry Wellisch >from Toronto, Canada
Topic: "Henry's Escape >from Europe in 1940"
Date: Sunday, April 17, 2016
Time: 2:00 p.m.
Location: Temple Beth Zion, Aaron and Bertha Broder Center for Jewish
Education, 700 Sweet Home Rd, Amherst, NY, 14226

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Buffalo and the Holocaust Resource
Center are hosting renowned lecturer, Henry Wellisch to speak at
Temple Beth Zion's Aaron and Bertha Broder Center for Jewish
Education, 700 Sweet Home Road, Amherst, NY, 14226 on Sunday, April
17th at 2:00 PM. His presentation will be "Henry's Escape >from Europe
in 1940."

Following the German invasion of Austria and the severe restrictions
that were placed on Jews, the Wellisch's were unable to leave Vienna.
Threatened with deportation, the family joined one of the "illegal"
transports to Palestine. Upon arrival, the British would not allow the
passengers to enter Palestine. Henry was then interned on the island
nation of Mauritius, west of Madagascar, in the Indian Ocean.

Subsequently, despite the danger, Henry joined the British forces in
the Jewish Brigade and returned to Europe to assist trapped Jews to
flee the Nazis. After the War, he fought with the Israeli Army in the
War of Independence.

Henry is a member and a past president of the Jewish Genealogical
Society of (Toronto) Canada and traced his family back into the middle
of the 18th century. He has published numerous articles on Jewish
genealogical research, lectured on various genealogical and historical
subjects, and contributed to several websites.

The presentation is free and open to the public. Refreshments
provided.

For more information you may
contact Suzette Stringer at srstringer@verizon.net.

and his research into family members around the world.

Tykocin Yizkor Book Project #poland

George Cabat <g38cabat@...>
 

To Researchers with family >from Tykocin and nearby towns
Subject: Tykocin Yizkor Book Project

My paternal grandmother, Anne Goldstein Kabat, was born in
Tykocin, Poland, a shtetl 17 miles WNW of Bialystok. She and two
brothers, Siskind and Eliezer Olsztejn, were the only members of
their father's, Avram Olsztejn's, extended family that were still
living after WWII; at least eighteen family members died in the Shoah.

JewishGen's Yizkor Book Project contains Sefer Tiktin, a memorial book
about Tykocin, Poland that has been only partially translated into English.
See
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/Tykocin/Tykocin.html
for what has been translated thus far.

I have agreed to be project coordinator because I believe in Sefer
Tiktin's importance to current and future generations who are not
fluent in Hebrew or Yiddish. Your children and grandchildren should
know where their ancestors came >from and the history and daily life
of their ancestors' home shtetl.

Written after World War II by emigres and Holocaust survivors, Sefer
Tiktin contains narratives of the history of the town, details of daily
life, religious figures, religious and secular education, and stories
of the major intellectual and Zionist movements of the 20th century.
The list of martyrs and names of residents are of tremendous
genealogical value, as often the names of individuals who were taken
to extermination camps or died in the forests are not recorded elsewhere.

Donations to complete the book are tax deductible (at least for US
citizens) and can be made through:
www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
Scroll down to Tykocin.
Donations of any size would be appreciated. However, if you would like
to pay for a complete translation of a particular article, please contact
me. I'll let you know if the article is still available for adoption and
the cost for translation. To send me a message, click on my name found at
the top of the Tykocin Yizkor Book page. A mission statement for the
project can be found by clicking 'Tykocin' on the donation page.

Updated Jodlowa Cadastral Map 1850 on the Gesher Galicia Map Room #poland

Jay Osborn <jay.osborn@...>
 

We published a great new map on the Gesher Galicia Map Room today;
it's an alternate version of the Jodlowa cadastral map >from 1850:
http://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/jodlowa-yodlava-1850-2/

Our original version >from the Rzeszow archive was an
intermediate-stage map, with no building or parcel numbers and with
two central sheets missing. The new map is >from the Krakow archive;
a Gesher Galicia member with roots in Jodlowa and unusually strong
research skills found this map in the Krakow archive inventory shortly
after we concluded an agreement on maps publication with the archive
late last year. This isn't the first valuable contribution >from that
member, and we all benefit >from his generosity.

The new map is complete and fully colored; it is remarkably worn but
quite readable thanks to heroic efforts by the archive staff to
preserve the individual sheets. In the assembly, we chose not to blend
sheet edges or to fill holes, etc. so you can see what 160+ years does
to paper. Building and parcel numbers are shown; the village is only
loosely organized along a small river through town, but boasts an
equestrian center (?!) along with more common village features.

Acquisition of the map scan images and assembly of this browsable map
were made possible by Gesher Galicia member contributions to the
Jodlowa GARP project.

The original paper map is preserved by the Polish Historical Archives
in Krakow:
