microfilm record #poland

Joshua Skarf <jskarf@...>
 

The last time I ordered a microfilm record >from LDS, they had
a service that you could send your request in online and they
would respond via email.

I know that service no longer exists, and that there have been
other changes in terms of how to get microfilmed records.

How can I go about doing this? I'm in Israel, so nowhere
near a LDS center.

The record I'm looking for is >from Pinczow, 1863 B #82 for
Szaja Dawid Wajndling. It's in microfilm 1192425.

Thanks.

INTRO - researching ABENDANA-BELMONTE, GOLDSCHMIDT and BRUSSEL from Hamburg-Altona. #germany

Brad Thayer <bthayer@...>
 

Hello GerSig,

I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for 4
months, but benefit >from previous research done in the past by other
family members. I consider myself to be a beginner in doing German
Jewish Genealogy research. I live in San Francisco, CA, USA.
My native language is English and I also know French, and my wife also
speaks Russian and Hebrew.
I consider myself an expert in using a computer and the internet, I am
a Software Engineer by training.

I have identified the names and birth and death dates of most of my g
g grandparents, and many ancestors beyond that.

My primary research goals now are to find additional ancestors in
Germany, as well as Bessarabia and Poland.

The family names and towns that I am researching in Germany are:

Connecting my known ABENDANA-BELMONTE ancestors in Hamburg to the
well-researched trees in Hamburg and Amsterdam: Selomo DE JACOB
ABENDANA-BELMONTE ~1770, Jahacob ABENDANA-BELMONTE ~1750.
Ancestors of Solomin BRUSSEL of Hamburg died 1857.
Ancestors of Jonas GOLDSCHMIDT 1780-1834 Langenselbold, Germany.

In Need of Contact Information, regarding Cemetery in Sena, Slovakia #hungary

Madeleine Isenberg
 

Dear Siggers,

I'm at a loss. I have been correcting information once added to JOWBR
for the town of Sena, Slovakia. But I have a problem in that I cannot
contact either of two people: A phone number was given for Calman
LIEBERMAN and an e-mail for Louis SCHONFELD. If anyone knows about
them, or anyone else who has information about this cemetery, please
contact me. Below is the e-mail I tried to send to Louis SCHONFELD,
at Lmagyar@en.com:

"I don't know if this e-mail still works, but I wanted to find out
more about something that was posted by you, 15 November 2000.

It concerns a list of people buried in the Sena Cemetery in Slovakia.
You indicated there that Mr, Calman LIEBERMAN had provided a list of
names of people buried in that cemetery, with dates beginning with
1865,

The organization Avosaynu that worked to restore the cemetery and
extract information (although with many errors) had stones dating from
about 1763 to 1873.

I have not been able to determine why there are no matches and why the
spans of time are so different. Do you have any information as to
where Mr. LIEBERMAN obtained his information? Did he go there himself
and collect that information?Did the information come >from death
records perhaps?

I would like to prepare a comprehensive list that would contain both
sets of information as well as correcting mistakes to the best of my
ability.

Thanks in advance, and I hope this will reach you."

Obviously, this message did not get through at that e-mail. Thanks in
advance to anyone who can enlighten me on this,

family, he embarked, in February 2017 on a trip to discover more of his roots and
his father's experience during the Holocaust (Romania). This trip took him to
Israel and >from there to Odessa (Ukraine), Transnistria and Chisinau (Kishinev)

JGSGW November 5, 2017 Meeting Announcement - Tante Freida was Almost Deported by the Feds! #general

N. Kotz
 

The Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington will host the following events
on Sunday, November 5, 2017 at Beth El Hebrew Congregation, 3830 Seminary Rd,
Alexandria, VA 22304

Event: Tante Freida was Almost Deported by the Feds!
Speaker: Rabbi Gary Gans
Date: November 5, 2017
Time: 1:30 PM

Rabbi Gary Gans' immigrant relative decided it was better in 1921, to claim to be
unwed and pregnant then admit the truth that she married an alien while visiting
Palestine. She should have been automatically denaturalized according to the U.S.
law then extant! She committed one of the few confirmed cases of voter fraud as an
undocumented resident living in the U.S.

This methodological approach will show the step-by-step approach that revealed
documents that the family was convinced were long buried. Over 30 years later, the
Feds caught her lie. Through disciplined research and good luck, he uncovered the
court records >from the 1950's, showing this 4 foot tall Yiddish speaking, old woman
in a housecoat, almost brought down the US government! This Cold War tale
involved governments behind the Iron Curtain, Israel, and the U.S.

He will also address the ethics of family secrets and confidentiality.
Is it ever OK to reveal what was previously hidden knowledge? Did he
violate his own family promises and privacy by going public?

Rabbi Gary Gans was ordained by the Reconstructionist Rabbinical
College and served as the Rabbi of Congregation Beth Tikvah, Marlton,
NJ for 35 years. In 2016 he was elevated to Rabbi Emeritus. He earned
his Doctorate >from Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Family
Counseling. Gans is a licensed therapist in NJ, specializing in family
relationships, grief, and the impact of life-cycle events. He is an
officer of the Crescent Memorial Cemetery, Pennsauken, NJ and
past-president of the South Jersey Board of Rabbis. In his free time,
Gary is a sworn chaplain with his local police department.

JGSGW Guest Attendance Policy
A non-member may attend the monthly JGSGW meeting as a Guest for a
$5.00 fee payable at the sign-in table. The $5.00 Guest fee may be
applied toward payment of annual JGSGW membership dues if dues are
paid at the same meeting at which the guest fee was paid. JGSGW

The Rawa Ruska Yizkor (Memorial) Book has been translated #galicia

roe kard
 

Jack BERGER has now completed the translation of the Rawa Ruska Yizkor
Book (Memorial Book); it is his fifteenth Yizkor Book translation.

Yizkor books are the books that Survivors and Emigres >from a town
compiled to memorialize their town. The Rawa book is 700+ pages long
and includes the history of the town, stories about the town and the
relations between the Hasidim and those who broke away, stories about
people >from the town, a lot about the 1930s, the time before the Holocaust,
the Holocaust and post Holocaust. It also has a section on Magierow. It is
profound and includes citations of many, many Rawa Ruska families.

For personal reasons, Jack chooses to do his translations on a voluntary
basis and outside of the aegis of JewishGen. Hence, the book will not be
available online at JewishGen's website or any other website and only a
few will be available to the general public in the libraries to which people
donate copies.

He expects to be going to print on November 7th, 2017. It will then take
about 8 weeks for the books to be printed and shipped to him and then
about 2 weeks for him to mail them all out. He will be printing only as many
copies as have been ordered.

If you are interested in purchasing copies please send me a note and I will
forward it to Jack. JewishGen rules preclude me >from including his contact
information in this message. And, I am always happy to answer any
questions I can: roekard@lmi.net

Re: Names in London(?) synagogue ledger #unitedkingdom

From: "Yissochor Marmorstein"<ymarmorstein@talktalk.net> :

The following names appear in an old ledger recording names (English
and Hebrew) of synagogue members. It is probably >from a 19th-20th
century synagogue in the East End (or West End) of London. I wondered
if any readers ... snipped ...
Try searching some of the less usual names in the London burial society
lists. Start with the Federation (Rainham and Edmonton) and then the
Adath Israel Burial Society (Enfield and Chesunt) as these are the
easiest. Then do a search for each of the United Synagogue burial ground
choices on their site. If many of names appear >from one source and not
the others, then you know at least >from which synagogue organization the
ledger is likely from.

Of the more common names on your ledger, can you please look up the
family name DAVIDSON who are >from the East End of London. ISMACH was the
original family name and convoluted by family in England to ISHMA when
they were asked about the family history. I am particularly interested
in finding out about my great-great-grandfather Isaac DAVIDSON (a
widower >from Lomza, Poland). The last that was heard of him is when his
son Alter passed away in December 1938 (>from Davidson Bakery, Cable
Street), the family put an announcement in the Jewish Chronicle and
mentions "father". I do not know whether he is the "closed" record on
the 1939 registry. Cannot find a civil death registration in the UK nor
his grave. Closest match with regard to age etc is a church minister in
a London inner-city neighborhood - obviously not a Yiddish speaker.
