Dear Mr. Lebensold,

On 28 October you wrote:

Charles LEBENSOLD (as Karl) appears in the Auschwitz arrival
lists for 22
June 1942 as Prisoner #40947. He is listed as having been born
in Paris
6e, resided Paris XI.

My question is: Are there, somewhere, copies of birth
certificates for Paris
VI, that might provide me with - among other things - the names
of
Charles/Karl's parents? Or lists of residents of Paris XI?

Thank you.

There are birth certificates, available on microfilm, at the Archives de la
Seine, at 75 - SEINE / PARIS 18, Bd Sérurier, 75019 Paris, tel.
011-331-.53.72.41.23, at the northeast corner of Paris. You will need to
consult them yourself, or send a researcher. They are not available over the
internet. You will have to scan the films over the date range you estimate
unless you have an exact birth date. You may have to get an ID card, which
would require a passport type picture, so go prepared with one. There are
also wedding and death certificates. Normally a fair amount of information
is included, and sometimes even the witness list is of interest.

It may be that the records are too late to be there (see the website), in
which case they will be at the Mairie (little city hall) for the
appropriate arrondissement. In that case, thay may do a search based on a
mailed request.

The French Civil Birth Records (as well as the Marriage Civil Records) of
less than 100 years are not freely available, excepted for the person
concerned by the record, his/her direct ascendants or descendants.
The other persons can only obtain an extract of the record without mention
of the names of the parents.

If the Birth Civil Record you are searching for dates of more than 100
years, there is no problem. The only problem is to find the precise date of
the birth.

There is no "lists of residents" for each "arrondissement" of Paris, but
there are populations censuses for 1926, 1931, 1936 and 1946. A research in
these records can be done if you know the address.

For more precision, you can contact me privately.

Researching My Family in Europe: Successes and Failures

Thomas F. Weiss

Sunday, November 6, 2005
1:30-4:30 PM
Gann Academy, 333 Forest Street, Waltham

This talk will describe the saga of the fascinating family
history research project Tom Weiss has undertaken, with its
many twists and turns. Born in Prague, he escaped with his
parents five months after the German occupation began. Weiss
returned for the first time 59 years later and found many
landmarks important to his family-in Prague and Vienna and,
on later trips, in Buchach and Rozhnyatov. His talk will
describe the results of his research and the methods and
resources used.

Tom Weiss, a retired MIT professor, serves as JGSGB's
program chair. At the national level, he is webmaster for
the JewishGen Rozhnyatov ShtetLinks page, coordinator for
translation of the Yizkor Book for Rozhnyatov, and an active
member of the JewishGen Suchostav Region Research Group. He
is currently writing a book about his family's history.

Directions to Gann Academy: Take Route 128/95 to Exit 28
east. Follow Trapelo Road 2.3 mi. east (toward Belmont) and
turn right onto Forest Street. The entrance to Gann Academy
is 0.4 mi. further down the road on the left. >from the east,
take Trapelo Road to Forest St., which is the 3rd street on
left past the National Archives. For maps and detailed
directions, visit our web page at gann.jgsgb.org (note: our
meeting space is not in the building shown in the photo but

You're probabaly referring to "Everything is Illuminated." It's based on a

Re: Privacy on the internet #general

With the mapping programs available today, anyone with your address can type
it in and get a map that points to your location. (Google merely automated
that process for the convenience of your friends.) Anyone who has your
phone number can enter it in a reverse directory (several are on-line) hand
have a good chance of finding your address.

And *anyone* who puts their name on a web site or in an email sent to a
mailing list will find that a search engine will list them. Messages on
lists are archived and available, like web sites, for the programs that
harvest and index information for inclusion in the search engines. That is
how, and part of why, search engines are such useful things.

If you don't like this, you had best, move to a different address, get a new
phone number, and stay off the internet in all its forms.

Should you be concerned? If you lived in a small town even 50 years ago,
the others in the town would know more about you than has been revealed by
the above described sources. Would you have been concerned?

The major concern these days is identity theft. For that you want to
control your social security number and perhaps your date of birth and
signature. Your phone number is likely of little value in that regard.
These thieves work at long distance and are, in my opinion, unlikely to want
to visit your home.

I have been reading through my Jewishgen digests and noticed some people
concerned about privacy with our families on the internet.

I have Family Tree Maker, with a Home Page and I am just beginning to putmy
"book" on my home page.

I went to google. com and typed in: " Kaplan Dorothy"

The second article was me: (apparently there are other famous Dorothy
Kaplans, not me)

I then clicked and got several other Kaplan researchers.

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=Kaplan+Dorothy&btnG=Google+Search

I don't know why, but this disturbs me. Obviously my family hasn't been
harrased since I started my genealogy, I am wondering what others think of
this. I have a feeling that if I typed in all my family names I would come
up with my Family Tree.

I remember that years ago I notified Google to delete my home phone number,
when clicked on it gave not only my address but a map on how to get to my
house.

We are all on the internet. This is a fact of life. Should we be
concerned?

The Tragedy of Slovak Jews

Powerful Holocaust Exhibition Comes to National Czech & Slovak Museum

CEDAR RAPIDS, IA – The National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library, in
collaboration with the Museum of the Slovak National Uprising in Banska
Bystrica, Slovakia, will open the exhibition, The Tragedy of Slovak Jews,
on Friday, November 4, 2005. This powerful exhibit addresses the tragic
demise of the Jewish communities in Slovakia, a little known story of the
Holocaust. This marks the first time an exhibition will address this topic
in the United States.

Jews were an important part of Slovak culture in 1939 when Hitler’s army
entered and occupied all of Czechoslovakia. The country became a divided
nation - The Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia (controlled solely by
the Nazis) and Slovakia (an "independent" Nazi-afiliated state). Over
the next six years, Slovakia deported nearly 60,000 Slovak Jews to
concentration camps, where most of them were murdered as part of Hitler’s
"Final Solution." In total, 80 percent of Slovak Jews were lost during
the Holocaust.

The Tragedy of Slovak Jews is the first exhibition in the U.S. to focus
entirely on the fate of Slovak Jews during World War II. The exhibition
focuses on the key milestones of the Slovak story including the acceptance
in 1941 of the Jewish Codex, a series of laws and regulations that stripped
Slovakia's Jews of their civil rights and means of economic survival. The
exhibit chronicles the first wave of deportations (March-October 1942),
the origin and activity of working and prison camps, the second wave of
deportations in 1944, the resistance movement, participation in the Slovak
National Uprising, and the reprisals of the Nazis in 1944 – 1945.

The Tragedy of Slovak Jews has been on display since 2002 at the
Auschwitz – Birkenau State Museum in Auschwitz, Poland. The National Czech
& Slovak Museum & Library is partnering with the Museum of the Slovak
National Uprising in Banská Bystrica, Slovakia, which originally researched
and prepared it. The exhibition closes Feb. 26, 2006.

The National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library is the leading United States
institution collecting, exhibiting, preserving, and interpreting Czech and
Slovak history and culture. The National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library
is located at 30 16th Avenue SW, Cedar Rapids, IA. Gallery hours are Tuesday
through Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Sunday, noon to 4:00 p.m. For

The Tragedy of Slovak Jews

Powerful Holocaust Exhibition Comes to National Czech & Slovak Museum
Previously Seen at the Auschwitz – Birkenau State Museum in Auschwitz, Poland.

CEDAR RAPIDS, IA – The National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library, in
collaboration with the Museum of the Slovak National Uprising in Banska
Bystrica, Slovakia, will open the exhibition, The Tragedy of Slovak Jews,
on Friday, November 4, 2005. This powerful exhibit addresses the tragic
demise of the Jewish communities in Slovakia, a little known story of the
Holocaust. This marks the first time an exhibition will address this topic
in the United States.

Would appreciate knowing how voter registration information is available.

Dear Cousins,
I thought it might be helpful to mention that I found out what court my
grandfather was naturalized in and when by finding a voter registration
for him. Aliens had to give that information in order to register.

Seeking EHRENSTEIN/Kfar Vradim #general

Vivian Kahn
 

Several weeks ago, I sent a letter to Mrs. Chaya EHRENSTEIN of Kfar
Vradim, Israel, who submitted a Page of Testimony in 1990 for her
mother, Hermina Moskovitz Handelsmann >from Spissky Hrusov,
Czechoslovakia.=A0The POT indicated that her maternal grandfather was
Emil Moskovits. I wrote to her because, based on the places and dates,
it is possible that her grandfather Emil MOSKOVITS, may have been an
older brother of my paternal grandmother Hermina MOSKOVITS NEUMANN. My
great-uncle Emil MOSKOVITS was born in November 1867 in Szobrancz,
Hungary. Szobrancz, which became Sobrance, Czechoslovakia during the
war and is now in Slovakia, is about half-way between Michalovce and
Uzhorod, Ukraine (formerly Ungvar).

If Chaya Ehrenstein's grandfather was my great-uncle Emil, her mother
Hermina and my father Elemer were first cousins and Chaya and I are
second cousins. My grandmother Hermina and her brother Moricz were the
only ones of at least nine children who came to the US so it is
important for me to know if Chaya is indeed part of my extended family.

To date, I have been unable to find any trace of Emil or the fate of
his family. This is the first possible lead.

I wrote my letter in English and don't know if Mrs. Ehrenstein can read
that language or has someone who can help with translation. If you
live in or near Kraf Vradim and are willing to try and contact Mrs.
Ehrenstein on my behalf, please contact me off-list and I will give you
her address. I believe that she is still listed in the phone
directory.

Thanks in advance to anyone who is willing to help,
