Re: New researcher (though longtime follower of Gesher Galicia) asking for advice (Solotwina and Rozniatow) #galicia

Dear David:

Unfortunately, the Jewish vital records for Rozniatow have not survived.
However, if you search the Routes to Roots Foundation Archival
Inventory http://www.rtrfoundation.org/index.shtml, you will find other
sources for Jewish research in Rozniatow.

The situation is different for Solotwina. The records >from before WWI
were destroyed during the War, but vital records covering years 1916 to
1931 do survive. The marriages and deaths for those years are now
being indexed by Jewish Records Indexing - Poland. JRI-Poland is an
independent organization not directly affiliated with JewishGen. Our
website and database at http://www.jri-poland.org are hosted by
JewishGen. If you are interested in these Solotwina marriage and death
records, please contact me privately. There are a few Solotwina
sources (not vital records) already on the All Galicia Database. As
mentioned for Rozniatow, there are also other sources for Jewish
research for Solotwina that can be found by searching the Routes to
Roots Foundation Archival inventory.

(US-NYC) Video of New York City in 1911 #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

With so many people worldwide with connections to immigrants coming to New
York City this restored film >from 1911 may be of interest.

Revisit New York City in 1911 is a restored film shot by a Swedish
documentary team which set out to capture the most celebrated places in the
world at the time.

In 1911, New York City was approaching 5 million people. The clothing and
modes of transportation are the most fascinating. This was shown last year
at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC.

Camp Avuka, Liberty, NY #general

Jeffrey Knisbacher
 

In writing my parent's history (my father a refugee >from Hitler's
Germany who arrived here in 1938, my mother born in Baltimore of
Ukrainian parents), I came across a June, 1940 picture taken at the
Zionist Camp Avuka in Liberty, NY. It is apparently the first picture my
mother ever took of my father. He is seated with two friends, all
sitting bare chested  in shorts, cross-legged in front of a tent, like
Indians in a pow wow, and the picture is captioned "three braves".

Apart >from my late father, Max KNISBACHER, the other men are unknown to
me, with just first names: Morty and Wolfgang. The latter is an
obviously German name and I'm wondering if he was a friend that my
father had known >from Germany, about whom I would like to know more.
Perhaps Morty was, too. In a separate photo of Morty alone, he is called
"strongman Morty". There are also other pictures, including one, in poor
shape, naming a Moshe ZELLENITZ, with possibly a friend named Chava,
whose picture was glared out. I am very interested in learning as much
as I can about Camp Avuka and the people who attended and will be happy
to share all these pictures.  Jeff KNISBACHER
