Dear all,

Celia's death is a great loss. She helped me greatly in my family searches
over the years. She was very kind when we met.

My last contact with her was last August. I quote it in full as it
expresses Celia's deep concern for the preservation of family memories and
her constant encouragement of others:

"Dear Dominique,
Your wonderful book arrived this morning.
It will keep the memory of your family alive for ever. The inhuman
suffering of our relatives must never be forgotten.
I will read the book very carefully and remember the family.
Once again thanks a million and congratulations.
My best wishes as always
Celia

Verdun research #france

bernerfolk
 

I am trying to determine whether a family which emigrated >from Verdun
in August 1898 was who they claimed to be ....or... actually my family
traveling incognito. I am led to believe the city records for that
period no longer exist so I'm hoping to find something >from the Jewish
community (or any other source) that confirms either family was there.

The possible surnames are FREIDENBERG(FRAJDENBERG),GRYMBERG,or MODLINSKI.

Any assistance or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Citizenship and marriage #galicia

Daniela Torsh <danielat1@...>
 

Can anyone tell me whether my Czech born aunty Olga THORSCH would have
acquired Polish citizenship upon her marriage in 1917 at the Temple in Krakow
to a Polish Jew Maks BRANDMANN?

Born in Uhersky Brod in the Czech republic Olga would have been an Austrian
citizen I assume.

Krakow was then part of Galicia in Austria but did Jews have Polish or
Austrian citizenship at that time?

Her husband born Pinchas BRANDMANN was born in Tarnow on 8 November
1876. Would he have automatically been Polish or Austrian or Russian? His
parents were Efraim born in Mielec and Malke born in Tarnow.

Help!

Re: Latvia town sounds like "crook"? #latvia

Hi Joan,

"Crook" is most likely Kriukai which is in Northern Lithuania very close to
the Latvia border.

Hoping this helps you with your search.

Help sought in identifying photos (VIZHANSKY family) #general

boris
 

My father-in-law, Abram VIZHANSKY, born in Kovno, always assumed he was the
sole survivor in his family. He only knew of an uncle who went to Argentina
before the war, probably in the 1920's. last year, we found this man's
children, five first cousins of Abram's.

Among the things and memories exchanged, for the first time in 75 years, the
newfound cousins sent us photos received >from Lithuania in the 1930's.
Unfortunately, there are no inscriptions with the photos, the people in the
photos are unknown, with one exception, a photo which depicts Abrams'
grandparents who he recognized at once, and his father Moishe who was killed
by Lithuanians in Kaunas on the second day of the war.

Most if not all of the people in these photos were murdered but there were
other families in the West who were related and to this branch and who might
have received the same photos, inscribed. Perhaps some on this forum will
recognize the photos or family names who were married to VIZHANSKYS.

All photos are at
http://www.bfcollection.net/family/vizhansky_unknown/index.htm

Other related family names related to Vizhansky by marriage are VOLK / VALK
/ UZVALK/ IZVOLSKY, SHEIN / SHEYN, YANUKOVSKY / YANUKOWSKI / YANUKINSKY,
BUDINSKY, SANDER, GESEL, CHERNYAVSKY, KUR, KATS / KATZ, KATSEV / KATZEV,
BAVER, SHADEVICH, MAZUR.

The primary geographic area of interest is the town of Pilvishki / Pilvishok
/ Pilvishkiai in the Vilkavishkis dictrict.

Thank you!

JewishGen course: Complex Jewish Genealogy in the United States #latinamerica

Phyllis Kramer
 

Times change and family genealogists are becoming more genealogically
experienced, more sophisticated at researching major web sites; yet
organization and good research habits are necessary. Your best value
may be one of our personally mentored, one-on-one, JewishGen courses.

April brings our Intermediate Course, Complex Genealogical Research
in the United States.If, despite basic online research (census, vital
records), you have not yet found the Hebrew names, approximate birth
year and/or former European town(s) for your U.S. immigrant ancestors,
consider this course as it covers more complex U.S. topics such as
naturalization, manifests, death records, military and governmental
records (passports, visas, bankruptcy), and local archival research
(course begins April 3).

This 4 week genealogy course features our personal mentoring program
and our online FORUM. Students are encouraged to post an ancestral
branch, set goals for their research, and work one on one with the
instructor. We are proud of our unique, individualized format and
downloadable lessons.

Students should have 8-10 hours per week to read the lessons, search
online and interact with the instructor. Courses are open 24/7 to meet
the needs of international students. *Please* read the course
descriptions, instructor's credentials and requirements on
www.jewishgen.org/education. Course Registration is opens, tuition is
$150.

If, after reviewing the education page, you have some questions,
please email JewishGen-Education@....
