George Arnstein <george304n@...>
 

Is there a way for me to be able to look at the list of participants -- before
the opening, in order to do some aplaning -- with a view to identifying
persons I want to meet or reconnect etc.

SOVIET POWs in GERMANY (WWII) #latvia

Marilyn Robinson
 

If you know have a relative/ancestor that was a Soviet POW, you can go
to the German language website (Dokumentationsstelle der Stiftung
Sächsische Gedenkstätten) which gives information that includes:
names (last & first), DOB, place of birth, nationality, ID#. The list
includes Jews and non-Jews. There's also a 'search' box.

http://www.dokst.de/node/1117?suchwort=A&seite=47

Use an online translator such as Google Language Tools to convert the
German website into English, if necessary:

Re: Why St. Louis? #general

Marian Merritt <mmerritt@...>
 

My mother's father always said our immigrant ancestors were afraid if they stayed
in New York, they'd have to work in a sweat shop. Going to "frontier" cities like
St. Louis probably appealed to those with an entrepreneurial spirit. My own
relatives went to cities where the oil industry was getting started in western
Pennsylvania, and Ohio as well as pre-statehood Oklahoma and Texas. My
great-grandfather, a shopkeeper in little towns in Texas and then Oklahoma, would
go to St. Louis on buying trips in the late 1890's and there he met his future
wife.
