Irene_Weissengrun - from Rudki - formerly Galicia #poland

Barbara Ras Wechsler
 

Hi=20

I am trying to trace the origins of Irene Wechsler. Her maiden name was
Weissengrun and was buried in Trieste in the Jewish Cementary. She
was 85 years of age at the time of death.

There are no further traces of the Weissengrun family in Trieste. She
probably came to Italy together with her husband (and children?). She
shares her grave with Rosa Wechsler, who died 10 years prior at the age
of 74 years and was probably unmarried.

I don't know the first name of Irene's husband, all I have is her death
date and approximate birthdate:
- born about 1845
- died December 20th, 1930

Dates of Rosa Wechsler
- born about 1846
- died September 14th, 1920

The only Weissengruns I found are >from Rudki, L'viv, Ukraine and
proximity. So at present, I'm assuming she came to Italy >from the
Lemberg / Lviv area with her husband.

Maybe somebody is researching the Weissengrun family and can help me
out.

Yizkor Book Project, February 2013 #courland #latvia

Shalom,

I believe I surprised even myself with the quantity and volume of new and
updated materials added into the Yizkor Book Project during that ever so
short month, February.

We are certainly blessed with a great number of extremely conscientious
volunteers who provide these translations and I would like to point three
very particularly extensive entries added now which involved many hours of
work by the volunteers who prepared them. They are:

- Chisinau, Moldova (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Romania, Volume
II)
- Liberec (Reichenberg), Czech Republic (The Jews and Jewish Communities of
Bohemia in the past and present)
- Vilnius, Lithuania (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Poland, Volume
VIII)

Apart >from new entries and projects, we regularly receive additional updates
for existing projects and, as I pointed last time, some of these projects
are very close to completion - a very gratifying feeling for all those
involved. We do have more than 700 hundred projects currently running and
there are many that need assistance to go forward. If you see a project with
only the table of contents translated, this is a fairly sure sign that it's
waiting patiently for someone to take on. If you'd like to know what's
involved in coordinating such a project, please feel free to write to me.

Now to facts and figures for February, during this last month we have added
these 6 new projects:

updated materials added into the Yizkor Book Project during that ever so
short month, February.

We are certainly blessed with a great number of extremely conscientious
volunteers who provide these translations and I would like to point three
very particularly extensive entries added now which involved many hours of
work by the volunteers who prepared them. They are:

- Chisinau, Moldova (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Romania, Volume
II)
- Liberec (Reichenberg), Czech Republic (The Jews and Jewish Communities of
Bohemia in the past and present)
- Vilnius, Lithuania (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Poland, Volume
VIII)

Apart >from new entries and projects, we regularly receive additional updates
for existing projects and, as I pointed last time, some of these projects
are very close to completion - a very gratifying feeling for all those
involved. We do have more than 700 hundred projects currently running and
there are many that need assistance to go forward. If you see a project with
only the table of contents translated, this is a fairly sure sign that it's
waiting patiently for someone to take on. If you'd like to know what's
involved in coordinating such a project, please feel free to write to me.

Now to facts and figures for February, during this last month we have added
these 6 new projects:

- Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine (Yekaterinoslav-Dnepropetrovsk Memorial Book)

Tracing Kesselson Family #southafrica

John Gross <john_gross@...>
 

Hi All
This is my first posting to the group so please forgive any transgressions.

I am trying to trace any of my maternal grandfather's family who originated firstly in Ukmerge Lithuania then moved to Kuspiskis Lithuania. The family name is KESSELSON but there are inevitably numerous variations.

On the SA Jewish Root Banks site I have found the burial records of 3 members of the CASELSON family but at this stage I have no idea if they are related. I am aware >from a cousin that another branch of my family did reach S Africa but their name evolved into Kaserson.

So my questions are:

1 Are there any BMD or other records I can use to trace the CASELSON family and where do I find them?

2 Do any members of the group recognise the CASELSON family?

I am visiting S Africa later this month so a visit to any archives in the Johannesburg/Pretoria areas might be possible.


Many thanks in advance.

Yizkor Book Project, February 2013 #ukraine

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I believe I surprised even myself with the quantity and volume of new and
updated materials added into the Yizkor Book Project during that ever so
short month, February.

We are certainly blessed with a great number of extremely conscientious
volunteers who provide these translations and I would like to point three
very particularly extensive entries added now which involved many hours of
work by the volunteers who prepared them. They are:

- Chisinau, Moldova (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Romania, Volume
II)
- Liberec (Reichenberg), Czech Republic (The Jews and Jewish Communities of
Bohemia in the past and present)
- Vilnius, Lithuania (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Poland, Volume
VIII)

Apart >from new entries and projects, we regularly receive additional updates
for existing projects and, as I pointed last time, some of these projects
are very close to completion - a very gratifying feeling for all those
involved. We do have more than 700 hundred projects currently running and
there are many that need assistance to go forward. If you see a project with
only the table of contents translated, this is a fairly sure sign that it's
waiting patiently for someone to take on. If you'd like to know what's
involved in coordinating such a project, please feel free to write to me.

Now to facts and figures for February, during this last month we have added
these 6 new projects:

Seeking Vladimir RABE, Subotice, Croatia #general

Michael Able <mable@...>
 

Seeking Vladimir RABE my maternal grandfather.
My mother Annetta and her twin sister Stephani are 89 years old and as well
as expected and living in Melbourne Australia.
Their mother's name was Theresa Heller (nee Halphen). They were born in
Subotice Croatia 4/2/1924(Austro Hungarian Empire) then lived in
Prague,Theresienstadt, Auschwitz,Kysperk (Czechoslovakia), Givat Hayim Ichud
Israel then Melbourne Victoria Australia.
Theresa (Halphen/Heller) my grandmother married Arthur Heilbrunn in Prague
and had another daughter Elizabeth. All three were murdered by the Nazis.

I know much about their last 64 years as I was around to ask and learn.
Theresienstadt records etc. are coincidentally held in the Kibbutz we formed
and their records do not go prior to WW2.
Any help would be great

New York Times article on holocaust research #general

Bruce Drake <bruce.drake@...>
 

The New York Times has an article in Sunday's paper, "The Holocaust Just Got
More Shocking" about findings reported by researchers at the US Holocaust
Museum about the total estimated number of Nazi ghettos and camps during the
1933-45 period. The article said "The figure is so staggering that even
fellow Holocaust scholars had to make sure they had heard it correctly when
the lead researchers previewed their findings at an academic forum in late
January at the German Historical Institute in Washington." The article has a
photo of the entrance to the ghetto in Brody, in Galicia.

Bessarabia SIG #Bessarabia Yizkor Book Project, February 2013 #bessarabia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I believe I surprised even myself with the quantity and volume of new and
updated materials added into the Yizkor Book Project during that ever so
short month, February.

We are certainly blessed with a great number of extremely conscientious
volunteers who provide these translations and I would like to point three
very particularly extensive entries added now which involved many hours of
work by the volunteers who prepared them. They are:

- Chisinau, Moldova (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Romania, Volume
II)
- Liberec (Reichenberg), Czech Republic (The Jews and Jewish Communities of
Bohemia in the past and present)
- Vilnius, Lithuania (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Poland, Volume
VIII)

Apart >from new entries and projects, we regularly receive additional updates
for existing projects and, as I pointed last time, some of these projects
are very close to completion - a very gratifying feeling for all those
involved. We do have more than 700 hundred projects currently running and
there are many that need assistance to go forward. If you see a project with
only the table of contents translated, this is a fairly sure sign that it's
waiting patiently for someone to take on. If you'd like to know what's
involved in coordinating such a project, please feel free to write to me.

Now to facts and figures for February, during this last month we have added
these 6 new projects:

- Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine (Yekaterinoslav-Dnepropetrovsk Memorial Book)
