Photo posted in Grodno, Belarus Yizkor book #belarus

Merv & Naomi Barnett
 

I have found a photo in the Grodno, Belarus Yizkor book of the
Keren-Hayessod Committee taken in 1924. Among all the names is one of
interest to me - that of my possible grandfather YAAKOV WOLSTEIN of
whom I have never seen a photo. The photo is on page 359.

Unfortunately the scan is of poor quality and I would like to contact
the poster to see if I can obtain a better copy.

Is anyone able to direct me on how to find the original poster of this photo?

Thank you.

Family TONSCHIEIN or TURNSCHEIN or TONCHIN (UK) from Drohobycz #general

Aubrey Jacobus <aajacobus@...>
 

Complex and tragic story - our cousin Abraham Nochowitz who died in London
1936 (b. 1896 in Skierniewice) who I knew and loved >from birth married in
London Millicent Tonchin a long time friend of my family with who I kept in
touch until her death.

I discovered that Abraham Nochowitz 's sister Toba married in Berlin Joseph
Tonchin (Turnshein Turnschein) who died of TB and is buried in Berlin
Weisensee cemetery 2-Dec-1924 (coincidence?)

It is to her eternal credit that Millie Tonchin (Nochowicz ) supported her
mother in law Poland long after her husbands death

Toba stayed in Germany and survived although her sisters emigrated to British
Palestine 1938 and flourished in Israel to this day.. There are further
apparent links to the family Lerner >from

Skierniewice Poland to my family Jakubowicz

I note that the family TURNSCHEIN are prominent in
https://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/drohobycz/shtetls/the-drohobycz-landsmanshaft-in-new-york.html
[MOD. NOTE: shortened URL - https://goo.gl/sG83q7 ]

I would be extremely grateful if any one has information on the family Tunschein

Hello,

On a passenger manifest for Paie Lewin & 3 daughters, arriving at
Ellis Island in 1911, the previous residence and birthplace listed is
Trawo, Wilno Gub. The writing is legible, and is repeated for all four
passengers.

I haven't had any luck using the JewishGen tools, does anyone
recognize this place?

Thank you,

They are both >from my cousin's autograph books, one >from JHS 117 in

(1965). Since our common grandmother was living with her, I presume,
she wrote the messages.

Viewmate requests translations of Yiddish or Hebrew #general

Jeff Miller
 

I've posted the Yiddish message text >from three family picture postcards
depicting a family member or members on the front (featuring infants or
young children) and message to be translated on the back.
Pictures were taken at studios in New York, probably in the 1920s or 1930s,
probably of Fraider family members, but possibly of Miller family members.

What I know about the family is my grandmother Jennie (Shayndl) Fraider
married Mordechai/Mottel/Max Mlynarz/Miller >from Ostroleka Poland in New
York in November 1916.
My guess is the pictures are of known New York relatives of Jennie's.

JGS Conejo Valley and Ventura County (JGSCV) June 3 Meeting Sephardic Research-Pre Meeting for Those Going to IAJGS #sephardic

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County
(JGSCV)will meet Sunday, June 3rd >from 1:30-3:30 pm at Temple Adat Elohim,
2420 E Hillcrest Drive in Thousand Oaks, CA.

A request >from one of the 19 JGSCV members who is attending the IAJGS Warsaw
conference asking those who are attending the conference if they could meet
before the meeting to discuss possible side trips etc.
For those attending the conference can you arrive about 1:10? This is in
addition to our usual schmoozing corner which begins at 1:00PM-see below.

Even if you think you have no Sephardic roots, you might be surprised as
Eastern Europe had welcoming countries when Sephardic Jews fled Spain and
Portugal due to the Inquisition

Program: The Other Side of Jewish Genealogy: Sephardic Resources

Just a few years ago, researchers of Sephardic genealogy were out of luck.
However, thanks to the internet, the Sephardic genealogy world has increased
exponentially every year. Where once there was nothing, today we have many
websites, new books, increased library holdings, conferences, accessible
archival records >from the comfort of our homes, and increasingly important
DNA projects that focus on this field. Included in this presentation will be
numerous archival documents, and many examples of online resources that
simply did not exist in the recent past. Speaker: Schelly Talalay Dardashti
Native New Yorker Dardashti resides in New Mexico, after having lived with
her family in Teheran, Miami, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Tel Aviv. For some
30 years, she has traced her Ashkenazi, Sephardi and Mizrahi families across
Iran, Spain, Russia, Belarus, Lithuania, and Ukraine. A journalist and
genealogist, she was the genealogy columnist for the Jerusalem Post created
the award-winning Tracing the Tribe - The Jewish Genealogy Blog (since
2006), and founded the Facebook group "Tracing the Tribe - Jewish Genealogy
on Facebook," with some 20,000 global members. She is the US Genealogy
Advisor for MyHeritage.com and co-administers several DNA projects at
FamilyTree DNA.

Schmoozing Corner: Starting at 1:00pm, facilitated by JGSCV member, Marion
Werle

Traveling Library: Categories A and D books plus Sephardic books in Category
C will available starting at 1:00 PM.
To see which books that willbe at the meeting, see the JGSCV website at:
www.JGSCV.org Library, traveling.

To find out about directions or other information about JGSCV please visit
our website: www.jgscv.org

Membership: Membership forms are on our website, www.JGSCV.org -- under
"about" and will be available at the meeting. Anyone may join JGSCV.
Annual dues are $25 for an individual and $30 for a family.

The meeting is open to the public without charge.

The Jewish Genealogical Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County is
dedicated to sharing genealogical information, techniques and research tools
with anyone interested in Jewish genealogy and family history.

Looking forward to seeing you at the meeting!

RomSig newsletter paper copies #romania

Monica Talmor
 

I have an almost complete set of the old RomSig newsletters, paper copies, which I
think have all been digitized. But I'm moving to a smaller place, and will not be
taking them with me. I hate to just discard them. Our genealogical society does not
have room for them either. Is there anyone who would like them (I will mail them at
my own cost). Any ideas as to who might want them?
