Remember Me? USHMM Campaign on Identifying Orphaned or Displaced #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

On Monday, March 21, 2011, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
[USHMM} (Washington D.C.) launched "Remember Me?," an international campaign
that will engage the public by asking them to help the Museum identify 1,100
children who were orphaned, displaced, or separated >from their families
during the Holocaust and World War II.

The "Remember Me?" integrated marketing campaign is the result of an
intensive team effort between the staffs of the Holocaust Survivors and
Victims Resource Center and the USHMM Marketing office to raise public
awareness about these young victims of the Holocaust and Nazi persecution.
The USHMM offices designed the project to use all of the Museum's marketing
tools to enlist the public's help in piecing together information about the
children's wartime and postwar experiences, and facilitate renewed
connections among these young survivors, their families, and other
individuals who were involved in their care during and after the war.

The "Remember Me?" campaign will also serve to increase awareness about the
Museum's Survivors and Victims Resource Center and the services it provides
to Holocaust survivors, their families, and other victims of Nazi
persecution.

The campaign's centerpiece is the "Remember Me?" Web site,
www.ushmm.org/rememberme , which features a gallery of images and makes it
easy for the public to submit information they might have about the children
pictured there. As the Museum offices learn more about each individual, the
associated Web site bio will be updated. The pictures, which come >from the
Museum and other institutions, were taken after the war by relief agencies
in hopes of reuniting the children with their families.

Please visit the site and share it with your friends and family using the
social media tools provided (Facebook, Twitter, etc).

Berlin vital records after 1874 #general

Judith Elam
 

I am currently researching the 3 siblings of my g-grandfather Arthur HAHN,
all born in Berlin: Paul HAHN (b. 1858), Clara HAHN (b. 1859) and Rosa HAHN
(b. 1864). I just have their names and dates of birth in Berlin, nothing
else. I would like to find out if they married and had children.

The Berlin LDS films do not cover AFTER 1874. I have looked in the online
Berlin address books, but there are multiple Paul HAHN's. I cannot find an
answer to this in the SIG's.

Can anyone please suggest where I can search for Berlin marriage records
after 1874?

Betreff: [h-sig] Dr (Geza) Gaspar-Gaspari (born 17 April 1871)

Dear H-siggers

RE: Dr (Geza) Gaspar-Gaspari (born 17 April 1871)

I only joined H-SIG last year and I really enjoy looking every day at the
discussion. I don't speak, read or write Hungarian however I have made a
great friend, Michael Taub, who helps me.

I am searching for information about the circumstances of the death of my
great-grandfather during the Holocaust. I have been told that he was gassed
by the Nazis, but that's all I know. His wife Anna, and his six children
survived the war, (some had fled to Paris). My grandmother Iboyka, married
out and emigrated to Sydney Australia.

I wrote to the International Tracing Service at Bad Arolsen but they do not
have records of him.

Dr Geza Gaspar-Gaspari retired >from medical practice in the1930s, he had
worked as a Registrar in Endocrinology at Debrecen Hospital, he also had
medical rooms in Budapest. I understand that he was a politically active
anti-fascist.

He was born to Moritz Gaspar and Julie Neuwalder, the birth record shows him
born as Gaspar Gaspari, in Debrecen on 17 April 1871.

Descendants living in France, will not discuss this chapter of the family
history, I must respect their choice. I only discovered my Jewish heritage
when I was in my thirties, and since that time, I have tried to learn as
much as I can about what really happened to my family.

I am travelling to Hungary in September- October 2011 and will be visiting
Budapest, Debrecen and other locations where the family lived.

I have placed a photo of Dr Geza Gaspar-Gaspari on Viewmate if that helps.
This is the link:

Looking forward to any information, or thoughts on how I can pursue my
search.

thanks

Dear Susan,
I am reading your letter about RACHEL VINER and wondering how she was
Related to the family GOLDSHMIDT ?
Actually I am busy with our Goldshmidt /Tsoref cousins,here in Israel
(Kibbutz Ginnosar and Lochmei HaGetaot) at the moment.
My "bridge" to you is through BERSHANSKY,Jonava. Bashe B. married Joseph
Viner,thus my interest in any north of England Viner families.

What does Oct 29 to Nov 26 2011 have in common with IAJGS, your JGS, your
SIG, you and the Jewish Genealogy? If your answer was that this is the
Hebrew month of Cheshvan you are right in part. It is also International
Jewish Genealogy Month and an opportunity and vehicle to have our
communities focus on Jewish Genealogy and our JCCs, our SIGS and our
projects.

This year's International Jewish Genealogy Month Committee will be chaired
by Nancy Adelson of Seattle who will be joined by Rabbi Garry Gans of New
Jersey, Howard Morris of Boston, Jeanette Rosenberg of England and Garri
Regev of Jerusalem. We are still looking to expand the committee and get
volunteers to ensure a success so if you have any ideas let me know.

And though our focus is a month of great programs, our annual poster is an
anchor. Details of the poster contest for which a June 15th submission date
has been established, are to be found at our website www.iajgs.org and will
be elaborated on by Nancy.

So start thinking of International Jewish Genealogy Month whether you live
in Los Angeles, Toronto, Liverpool, Ra'anana, Johannesburg, Paris or
Melbourne. Your fall programs are right around the corner.

Rachel VINER marriage lookup assistance #unitedkingdom

mbenedict51@...
 

If you're looking for local area info, it's always worth trying the local
register office sites, where they exist. This marriage shows up on the free
LancashireBMD site, with the matching of the names; and you may be able to order

direct, via that site, for the standard certificate fee of £9, though they do
charge an extra £1 for paying by credit card.

Alternatively, the FreeBMD site also shows the marriage and gives you the
matching name. With (or without) the reference info on FreeBMD, you can order
directly >from the GRO, and pay by credit card, for £9.25.

Unless you want to pay a great deal more for the same thing, I would recommend
that you avoid intermediary services which will be doing only what you could do
for yourself, but for a substantial mark-up.
