Hello All

There was once a man named Hirsch Glass. Born in 1911, he was >from
Subacious Lithuania. In that same year, his father Jankel Glass went
to New York USA intending to send for the family once he established
himself there. Sadly he died shortly after arriving in NYC.
Hirsch Glass, during the Shoah most likely was interned in the Kowno
Ghetto, then sent to Dachau, which he survived. In 1949 he and his
wife Esther and their young son Jankel moved to Australia. They had
a daughter in Australia named Bela, and through Jewishgen, Bela
contacted me. We believe we are cousins. We are looking backward
in time to find the common ancestral link, perhaps one generation more,
the father of her grandfather Jankel Glass >from Subacius.

We have received some passport application records >from the archives
in Lithuania. Most of them are quite short. Is there anyone who
would favor this project with some translation help? The records are
in Lithuanian. Grateful thanks in advance to anyone willing to help out.

Please respond privately.

Regards

Joe Glass

Historical Shanghai Jewish World War ll Era Newspapers Online #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Ancestor Hunt has published World War ll era Shanghai newspapers online.
Shanghai became a haven for fleeing Jews during World War ll because of
their lenient visa requirements and they accepted thousands of Jewish
refugees.

While the Shanghai Jewish Refugee Museum built a database that contained the
name, occupation and address for many of the refugees, that database is no
longer available. It might be found by using the Way Back Machine ( Internet
Archive) . If you do find it on their please share that with us.

However, there are some Shanghai newspapers written by and for Jews that
were digitized and are available online. Some are in English and most are
in German. Best to look at both Internet Archive (https://archive.org/ ) and
the Leo Baeck Institute (https://www.lbi.org/ ) .

The article in Ancestor Hunt has 10 links to newspapers:

DNA tests are not only important for you! They are vital for Hidden Children #warsaw #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

Dear friends

In the past year, research by two dedicated informal teams revealed the identity of two women who were Jewish babies saved and brought up by Polish families. JRI-Poland is proud that our database of online and offline records played a critical role in both cases.

In one case, the search started in 2003, the more recent one in 2014. While we knew the towns/areas where these babies were born, the incorrectly ascertained town in the first case and the multitude of town records in the second made it impossible to even begin to conjecture their heritage. In the end, it was only through a succession of DNA matches in the past year - in conjunction with building family trees made possible by JRI-Poland data - that the identities of both babies were finally revealed.

Which brings me to the subject line of this post, "DNA tests are not only important for you! They are vital for Hidden Children"

When family and friends ask "why get a DNA test?" I suggest you refer them to this article in the Canadian Jewish News. It stresses that point that many of us have been preaching for years. (When you read the article, it will be evident why I am so pleased that I had my own DNA tested.)

https://www.cjnews.com/news/canada/dna-and-detective-work-reunite-hidden-child-and-family

As I said in my lecture during Holocaust Education Week in Toronto last year, the reason is not only to satisfy one's own curiosity about family roots, but because the information could be crucial to the many people who are trying to recover their Jewish identity, or find relatives who were lost in the Holocaust. These are often Jewish children who were hidden or adopted by non-Jewish families during the Second World War.

I urge everyone...put yourself out there, make it possible for someone, somewhere to find you just as you want to find them. Dramatic stories of discovery like this, of establishing anew long-severed family connections, illustrate how technology provides new opportunities for those who want to know for themselves and future generations.

Hidden Children born in the years just before and in the early days of the war are now in their late 70s or 80s. The clock is ticking for them. They may have taken DNA tests. Have you and your extended family and friends?
