We are seeking contributions in order to cover the costs (about $4,000) of translation. The contributions can be made on-line through the Ukraine SIG web site, and are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. See a full description of the project 'Belaya Tserkov Region: Jewish Records Project' http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/projectdesc/DB_Belaya%20Tserkov.htm

JGS of Colorado - Sunday Jan 29th - "My Root Trips to Poland" #general

Terry Lasky <talasky@...>
 

Sunday, January 29th
My Roots Trip to Poland including the Kielce Pogrom Memorial Services
Presented by Elliott Cohen

Open to all, members and nonmembers, at no charge

Location: Jewish Community Center, 350 South Dahlia Street, Denver
Time: 10:00 am until noon

Description

Elliott Cohen will discuss a family genealogy journey of over 40 years -
starting with a 1976 visit to his shtetl village of Checiny in Communist
Poland, visiting the synagogue that his dad attended and finding the
family cemetery in the woods. He has returned twice in the past four
years to try to restore the synagogue as well as put up a monument to
the history of the Jewish community of Checiny, where Jews have lived
since the 1500's. His family history traces to the late 1700's.
Additional, he has been to two memorial services in Kielce in memory of
the Kielce Pogrom of 1946 where the local population slaughtered 48
survivors of the Holocaust. Through these travels, Elliott has made
friendships with young Polish college students. He has also made
another possible discovery, this time on US soil, with DNA testing: a
possible descendent of Rabbi Shabtai HaCohen (the Shach)!

Elliott Cohen Bio

Elliott was born in Brooklyn, raised in Silver Spring, Maryland and
received his medical degree >from the University of Maryland in 1968.
His interest in family genealogy began in the early 1970s when he was
stationed in Heidelberg, Germany with the U.S. Army as a psychiatrist.
He came to Colorado Springs in 1979 as the Division Psychiatrist at
Fort Carson. He has been in private practice since 1981. He is
married, and has two adult daughters; one lives in Denver and the
other in Las Vegas.

Researching European Ancestors of the KRONSBERG Family #general

Elliot Kronsberg <ekrons@...>
 

Sorry that my formatting will definitely not be correct, but I just
found this group and was hoping someone might have some information I
have been unable to find.

My great-great grandfather was Abraham KRONSBERG, who lived in
Tilghman's Island, Maryland until he died in 1918. >from what I can
tell, he was born in Ukraine around 1878. I can find sparse references
to his parents - Edward KRONSBERG and Miriam STOLLER - but no
information about them. His father's name is odd because Abraham's son
was also named Edward, which I know is unusually for Jewish families.
I would love to know anything about Abraham's parents and potentially
other relatives.

Abraham had a sister Ida who married into the FLEISCHMAN family of
North Carolina, and I have been able to trace their whole family.

If anyone has any connection to the KRONSBERGS, I would love to hear
from you.
Thank you,
Elliot Kronsberg

Request for letter translation on ViewMate - Yiddish #general

Janice Brockman
 

Hello JewishGen -

Subject: ViewMate translation request - Yiddish

I respectfully request a full translation of what I believe to be the
mostly Yiddish text on the four pages of a letter found in my husband's
grandmother's possessions. The four pages of this letter are found on
ViewMate at the following four addresses:

Page 1 -

Page 4 -
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM52977

Please respond using the online ViewMate form. I am hoping to cull
information >from these letters about my husband's grandmother's life
and perhaps the life of family members back in Russia. We suspect
these letters came >from her mom or dad back in Ukraine, Russia circa
1920 - 1940. It looks like there may be some longhand Russian on
page 4.
