Person asking re passport issued in Bucharest... #romania

Rosanne Leeson
 

I am most apologetic, but I seem to have lost the email >from the
gentleman who asked about a Russian passport issued in Bucharest in
1922. Therefore I am posting this note to the Rom-SIG list in hopes he
will see it.

I have a response for you, if you would be so kind as to contact me
privately .

JGSGW April 19 Meeting & Exhibit: "Galician Portraits: The Story of Jews, Gentiles and Emperors" #poland

Tony Hausner
 

Date: Sunday, April 19, 2015
Time: 1:00 PM Schmooze, 1:30 PM Meeting and Program
Location: Beth El Congregation, 3830 Seminary Road,
Alexandria, VA 22304

(Directions available at: http://bethelhebrew.org/)
Speaker: Dr. Andrew Zalewski, MD

"Galician Portraits: The Story of Jews, Gentiles and Emperors"

In his first book, Galician Trails, Andrew Zalewski traced his mother's
family >from the 18th century to the mid-20th. Now, in Galician Portraits,
he discovers his father's side, who also lived in Galicia, but
whose experiences were very different simply because they were Jewish.
Galician Portraits is much more than a record of one family. It also covers
centuries of Jewish history in the region, before and after Galicia existed.

In these pages, Galicia's Jewish community emerges as more diverse
than one could ever imagine. Yet the author has discovered many voices
that had long been forgotten, as well as surprising details about his own
family. The talk The Story of Jews, Gentiles and Emperors will
be illustrated by archival pictures, documents and maps.

Andrew Zalewski is a cardiologist who lives in the Philadelphia area with
his wife, Margaret. They have two children and four grandchildren. Despite
a busy professional life, Andrew published two books on Galicia and is a
frequent speaker at genealogy conferences where he shares his experiences.

Attention Galitzieners!!!

Exhibit Area for Our Galician Portraits=E2=80=9D on April 19

Do you have Galician roots? Great news! We will have an area for display
at the event. =20

Have your written a book about your Galician ancestors? Do you have
photographs, artwork, and family mementos? Have you visited your family's
ancestral home/town/shtetl/cemetery?

We would love to see what you have. We are inviting you to bring materials
from your family history to this exhibit.
Please let us know that you would like to participate and approximately how
much space you will need on a tabletop (linear feet), so that we can
arrange for enough table space. Tell us your name and the Galician family
names or town(s) that you will be representing.

New York Hebrew Orphan Asylum #general

Eric Ellman <eellman@...>
 

Friends:

I recently discovered quite a shock and sad story about my
grandfather and his parents. I could use some HOA expertise.
When my grandfather was five years old, in 1912, and while his
parents were still alive and living in New York, he was admitted
by his grandfather (my great-great grandfather) to the HOA on
Amsterdam Ave. I can only intuit >from the admission form,
obtained >from Ancestry, that his parents could not afford to
keep him. They had a baby (my great uncle) on their hands and
they may have known then that another (my great aunt) was on the
way. The admission form is transcribed below, which leaves me
with the questions posed below.

I assume that my grandfather rejoined his family at some not too
distant point following his admission to the HOA. As best as we
knew, my grandfather had a full life with his parents, with whom
we knew and saw all the time until their deaths in the 1960s and
1970s.

1. Do I assume correctly that the likely explanation here is that
my great-grandparents could not afford my grandfather? Was this
common?
3. What does received "c. of c." mean on the admission form?
4. What does no payment to "O.P.C. grandfather's statement" mean?
5. Were non-orphans put in the HOA with the expectation that they
would/could/might be reunited with their families? Was it common
for families to be reunited?
6 This may sound crass, but if a non-orphan was not returned to
the family in x period of time, was the child considered abandoned
and subject to adoption?
7. Were non-orphans put in the HOA for adoption?

HOA Admission Form:
New York Hebrew Orphans Asylum, Amsterdam Ave., Charles
Rosenberg, Jan. 7, 1907 in the U.S.; 350 E. 95th St..; Received
"c of c" on April 22, 1912; Brother Jacob, age 3; Father, Louis

I've found a Wikimedia Commons page with photographs of gravestones
in the Jewish cemetery in Bassum, Germany, where many of my relatives
were buried before World War II. Some of the gravestone inscriptions
are in German, which I'm able to read, but most are in Hebrew, which
I'm not. I'd be grateful to anyone who can translate the stones for
me. I've posted the first five on ViewMate at the following addresses:
