Re: Using a pre-purchased ticket under a different name #general

Alan Greenberg
 

I suspect here may not be a single definitive answer, but I know of
one case where my grandfather clearly travelled on a ticked in his
brother's name. That implies to me that it was either easier to do
so, or perhaps the only alternative at the time if his brother couldn't
travel.

Lodz Registration Cards Update - 130,000 Jewish Names #lodz #poland

Margalit Ashira Ir
 

Dear Researchers,

In anticipation of the 2018 International Conference on Jewish
Genealogy (IAJGS ) in Warsaw, the Lodz Registration Extraction Team is
pleased to announce the addition of 20,000 Jewish names now available
on the JRI-Poland website. This information was extracted >from the
Lodz Registration Cards 1916-1921.

To date, the total number of names and families identified and indexed
is 130,000. This could not have been accomplished without the
dedication of our international group of volunteers who we thank for
their continued passion and commitment these past 3 years.

Our marathon to complete The Lodz Registration Card Project continues
with 58% of the project complete. To expedite the work, we need your
help! We welcome additional volunteers to join our incredible group
and help move our program forward to total completion. Polish
language skills are not required.
Please Contact Margalit.a.Ir@... with your interest to join this team.

Our volunteer team is extracting the cards in alphabetical order. If
you wish to prioritize the extraction of your family's name, a
donation of $54 per name will result in a quick and dedicated
spreadsheet for your use.

Ukraine database additions in June #ukraine

Janette Silverman
 

Dear friends:
With the digital availability of FHL images some of our indexed records
are already linked to those images. When you do a search on JewisGen if
there is a microfilm number and it is underlined, then it is linked to
the Family History Library's digital image. You will need to be signed
into your free account at FamilySearch.org in order to access the images
but you can do so >from home! Thanks to Michael Tobias for connecting
the Ukraine indexes to those images.

We have added the following new data to the JewishGen Ukraine databases:

Vasilkov 1816 and Belaya Tserkov 1850 revision lists - 1,047 lines
Litin 1882 revision list - 862 lines
Odessa 1897 census - 243 lines
Stavische 1847 community book - 37 lines
Tuchin 1851-1858 revision list 2,998 lines

Stavishche 1847 births - 101 lines
Tarascha BMD - 611 lines
Zashkov 1848-1851 births - 44 lines
Zhivotovv 1851 marriage - 9 lines
Koshevata 1847-51 BD 107 lines

Thank you to the numerous volunteers who are working so hard on
translations and transcriptions. Thank you also to Alex Krakovsky for
the work he is doing in the archives in Ukraine to digitize data and
make it freely available at https://tinyurl.com/Ukraine-databases

New data will be added in September. I'll be visiting the CAHJP in
October to discuss their new data acquisitions, what we would like from
various archives, and the possibility of linking the indexes made from
data we acquired >from CAHJP to the records.

Please, do not ask me to send you copies of records >from the indexes.
All of us working on record acquisition and managing translation
projects as well as most of our translators are volunteers. We do not
have staff available to look for and send you records, and in some
cases, we are bound by agreements with some archives not to do so.

I hope to see many of you in Warsaw at the IAJGS conference.

Searching for one Isaac Zipperstein (married to Chantzia/Chassie) that arrived in the US on 30-May-1910 in Galveston, Texas #general

Avraham Y. Kahana
 

Hello all,

I have posted months (and years) ago about me searching for my
Zipperstein relatives that made to the US in the beginning of the
1900s. Fortunately JewishGen and the community made my efforts
successful, allowing me to find 2 of my great grandmother's siblings.
Today I am starting the quest for one of the other 2 remaining:
Yitzchak Zipperstein.

Below is the ship manifest one can find at Ancestry for him. The first
thing I did was writing the Texas Jewish Genealogical Society
inquiring about him.

What other leads should I try, given the data below is the only thing I have ?

Thanks in advance,

(Belarus) Nazi Concentration Camp Maly Trostenets Memorial Opens #belarus

Jan Meisels Allen
 

One of Nazi concentration camps, almost forgotten, Maly Trostenets, also
known as Maly Troscianiec in Polish and Maly Trastsyanets in Belarusian,
about 12 kilometers south-east of Minsk, within the former Soviet Union was
virtually unknown during the Soviet era. It was originally set up in the
1940s by Nazi Germany to incarcerate Soviet prisoners of war. It was turned
into an extermination camp between July 1942 and October 1943. Between
Spring 1942-Summer 1944 200,000 people were murdered at the camp, making it
one of the largest extermination camps created by the Nazis. In 1943-1944
when the Red Army was approaching, the Nazis decided to destroy the evidence
and burned the bodies. Only 17 people survived. It is the fourth largest
Nazi extermination camp after Auschwitz, Majdanek and Treblinka. Jews from
Europe, mainly >from Belarus, Poland, Austria, and Czechoslovakia were the
largest group among the victims, including 22,000 German Jews and 30,000
Jews >from nearby Minsk. They were murdered and buried in the nearby
Blahaushchyna forest.

For the first time the German President traveled to Belarus, along with the
presidents of Austria and Belarus, the Polish presidential chancellery State
Secretary, Czech parliament's deputy speaker, World Jewish Congress
representative, and the President of Belarus attended the memorial's
opening. As Soviet narrative victims of Maly Trosents, were incorrectly
referred to as "Soviet civilians, partisans, resistance fighters," as the
Soviet culture of remembrance excludes the Holocaust. Holocaust crimes that
took place east of Auschwitz have been hardly recognized.

There are two memorials at Trostenets. In 2015 the "Gate of Remembrance"
was inaugurated. This is the path which the victims walked to their deaths.
The second memorial is at the killing field. Historians and architects
combined forces to combine the two memorials so that today there is one.

A video of the memorial is available at:
https://www.tvr.by/eng/news/obshchestvo/v_trostentse_byli_unichtozheny_sotni
_tysyach_evreev/ The narrative is Belarusian.
