British Army Records

The British Army units that served with the Chindits retained their normal
record keeping and administrative responsibilities, and the records are
archived in the Ministry of Defence.

The surviving records of all officers and soldiers who joined the British
Army and who were discharged after 1922 are stored in the Ministry of
Defence Record Office CS(R)2b at Bourne Avenue, Hayes, Middlesex UB3 1RS.
This includes territorial, volunteer, militia and home-defence forces
and some colonial forces. The MOD Record Office also held the WWI records
which have been progressively released to the Public Record Office over
the past five years. Information on the service records of the individual
may be obtained by application to: Ministry of Defence Records Office
CS(R)2, Bourne Avenue, Hayes, Middlesex UB3 1RF, United Kingdom.
{Telephone ++44 0208 573 3831}. They will send you an application form
that will require a search fee of BP 25 per person being enquired after.
Payment of the search fee does not guarantee a successful result. The MOD
now requires applicants to certify that they are the individual concerned
or their next of kin, together with a copy of the death certificate, as
appropriate. The form asks for details of the other kin between the
enquirer and the subject. This recent preoccupation seems to have arisen
out of concerns caused by the Data Protection Act 1999, required by
European Union legislation. There is reportedly a long delay in getting
the response, the result will now be a statement of service and not copies
of the original documents.

Marcu Pincu LEVENTER b. Podu Turcului (now Bacau county) #general

PJL427@...
 

My great great aunt Haia or Chaya daughter of Simcha Leib WIND and Mariam
of Braila, Romania married Marcu Pincu Leventer of Podu Torcului (now
Bacau county) in 1896. I believe that they settled in Podu Torcului. They
may have emigrated to the US. I am looking for decendents or any
information about them. If anyone has Leventer relatives in Podu Turcului,
Bacau County or Braila, I would be very interested in sharing information
with them.

ANNOUNCING - ViewMate - JewishGen tool #galicia

Shelley K. Pollero <rkpollero@...>
 

JewishGen announces a new research tool.

Advance your research with ViewMate!

Do you have a need for analysis or translations of book titles, letters
or gravestone photos? Do you have questions about old family photos,
maps or book pages? ViewMate is JewishGen's newest tool, designed to
supplement the written query, and help you to solve graphic riddles.
Here is an example of how it works. Follow along now with Jack, our
demonstrator.


Jack finds an unidentified family photo with an inscription on the back,

written in what appears to be Hebrew script.

He scans it on his home PC system, creating a graphic file.

Then he goes to the ViewMate (VM) website. Using the easy upload
feature,
he uploads his graphic file to VM. Jack soon receives an e-mail
confirmation with a file number.

He then posts a notice to the JewishGen Discussion Group (or SIG of his

choice) stating that he has uploaded a photo to VM. He requests someone

knowledgeable in Hebrew to visit the VM website, view his graphic
(File No. X) and translate it for him.

An eager reader will be quick to provide feedback. Eager reader responds

with translation. Riddle solved. Jack adds new info to his tree.


Its as easy as 1-2-3.
1- Scan on your home PC system.
2- Upload to ViewMate.
3- Request feedback.

You are invited to visit us today to make use of this newest JewishGen
tool. The site has FAQ and full instructions.

Majdan #galicia

moishe@langsam.com <moishe@...>
 

Hi,
I am turning to our group in the hopes of finding a resource to help in my
research.

Nechuma Malka was the daughter of R' David Spira (1804 - 1874) and
granddaughter to R' Hersh Mylech Spira (aka the Bnei Yissochur). According
to tradition, she married the Rabbi of Majdan.

Would anybody know who this Rabbi was? Is there anybody researching this
town? In the JEWISHGEN family finder there seems to be TWO towns by this
name, one in Poland and one in Ukraine. If eithr one was not part of
the Galicia, please forgive my posting this question to the group at all.

Thanks!

JewishGen proclaims November 2, 2000 as Carol Skydell Day #galicia

Shelley K. Pollero <rkpollero@...>
 

Dear Galicia SIG,

I apologize for the belated announcement of Carol Skydell Day on
JewishGen. I was unavoidably off-line for a few days and just got this
message, which I now pass on to you. Carol Skydell has been unbelievably

supportive of Galicia SIG and we send her our very best and most sincere
wishes for a wonderful birthday. It is hard to believe that Carol is 75!

Official Carol W. Skydell Day on JewishGen in honor of her 75th birthday

November 2, 2000

There are special moments and special people that an organization can
recognize, and today is one of those very special occasions. Can you
imagine the world of JewishGen without Carol Skydell?

This feisty red-head first presented herself to JewishGen at the
Washington Summer Seminar in 1995. She had been known to many of us
through her informative posts on JewishGen during the previous six
months.

It was here that Carol made her first big mistake in her 5 year "career"
with JewishGen. A mistake that now carries forward to anyone who
complains. <grin>

They say you can't teach an old dog a new trick... well those prophets
were wrong! We have proven over many years that no matter what your age,
and no matter what your disability and no matter how technically
challenged you are... JewishGen can find a way to get you to
volunteer... and then some... Carol is our proof! <grin>

from the Support Desk to Moderator, >from Moderator to Board Member and
Public Relations, >from Public Relations to VP of Operations... Carol has
surely been on a fast track.. all the while demonstrating to us how fast
she can still type.

Mother of three sons, two daughter-in-laws, one grandson and four or so
grand dogs, Carol continues to monitor all her duties while making cross
country treks between her east and west coast homes twice a year. All of
her files are zipped, her paperwork stuffed in baskets in her car... and
her car put on a transport... it is JewishGen flexibility and mobility
at the utmost.

JewishGen has gained immeasurably >from Carol's exuberance, her
willingness to tackle any job ... no matter what time of the day or
night it presents itself, her undying spirit for what JewishGen stands
for, and her unsurpassing loyalty and dedication to the missions and
goals of this
organization.

Please join with us today to honor Carol! There is no better way to say
thank you on this special day than to give back to JewishGen by making a
gift in her honor to JewishGen through our Honors/Thanks
JewishGen-erosity site.

<http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgen-erosity/honors.html>

Please join us in celebrating this very special occassion with Carol.
This will be the most special gift of all. What a better way to honor an

individual who has given generously of her time through dedicated,
selfless work for the greater good of Jewish genealogy?

Your contribution to JewishGen will continue to fund our operational
budget which supports all of JewishGen's activities, projects and SIGs,
each and every month.

Happy Birthday, Carol!

Did not know that it could be a man's name as well. The things one learns
