New Book:Jews of the Kaipiadorys Region of Lithuania #general

Gary Mokotoff <mokotoff@...>
 

Avotaynu has just published a new book "Jews of the Kaipiadorys Region of
Lithuania" by Rolandas Gustaitis.

For more than three-and-a-half centuries Jews flourished in the Kaipiadorys
region of Lithuania - the area between Lithuania's two largest cities, Kaunas
and Vilnius. It all came to an abrupt end during the Holocaust when the
German SS Einsatzgruppen killing squads and their Lithuanian collaborators
murdered most of the Jewish population and plundered their belongings.

The book tells the history of the Jews of the region >from its earliest days,
with particular emphasis on the early 20th century and Holocaust periods.
The history is enriched by the naming of people - not just events. The index
lists more than 400 people, mostly Jews. More than 200 pictures show the
life of the Jewish people of the region as it existed before the Holocaust.
The author, a Lithuanian historian, cites his sources in nearly 1,300
footnotes.

The book includes the towns of Dars{nipkis, Kaipiadorys, Kruonis, Rumpipkks,
^asliai, ^ie~mariai and, to a lesser extent, Gegu~ink, M{ro Strkvininkai,
Pilonys, Tartokas and Z{bipkks.

Ordering information as well as the Table of Contents can be found at
http://www.avotaynu.com/books/Kaisiadorys.htm.

genealogical interest.

Searching for step-brother of a friend #general

Carol Cohen
 

I am helping a friend find a lost family member. Her father was stationed in
England during WW2. While we know he was a warrant officer, we do not know where
he was stationed, but we are trying to find out. He enlisted in 1942, and was
discharged in 1946. He married a woman in England and had a child. After the war
was over the wife and child moved to the US. I know this for a fact, as a relative
of mine went to visit the family and met her and the little boy. They divorced not
long after that and the wife and child returned to England. They both remarried and
their child was later adopted by the new husband. My friend's father died 15 years
ago, and only recently did she find out about this half brother. We have tried
researching the last name. I don't know where to begin. US army? England? How do I
access this information? Thank you.

Cemeteries in Sosnowiec Poland #general

Ann Linder
 

Of the 3 cemeteries in Sosnowiec Poland
(1) Pastewna street (2) Gospodarcza street (3) Piaskowa Street---I'm trying to
determine which of the 3 might have the graves of my family. My mother recalls
that the cemetery was/is on the same street as the Jewish Hospital and near or on
the same street as a soccer field. This would be in aprox 1940. Note also that
she recalls that the cemetery is past a bridge but is not in Modrezow. I searched
jewishgen & googled for an address but was not successful. I located a photo of
the Jewish Hospital but it does Not have the street name, and info on jewishgen
about the hospital also does not indicate a street name. If anyone is familiar
with Sosnowiec & can help on this, I'd appreciate it. Thank you.

Unser Wien "Our Vienna"- reference book #general

Deborah HOLMAN
 

This may be a long-shot, but why not ask, right? I am interested in locating a copy
of the book "Unser Wien" co-authored by Stephan Templ and Tina Walzer. >from what I
have read, the book includes listings of Viennese businesses that were aryanized in
1938-39. I am attempting to learn more about my mother's family's business "LITAL"
which was owned by my g-grandfather Sigmund LICHTENTHAL. I don't need to own the
book, just would like to know what information may be contained. Amazon.com prices
it at $100+ - way more than I can spend! There does not seem to be any available
through my state interlibrary loan program.

DNA testing and a particular town #dna

What information can I hope to acquire if a significant number of, let's say
men, all >from a particular town, were to have their DNA tested?

The forbearers of these men, all of whom came to this country in the last
hundred years, lived in a small town whose population never exceeded a few
thousand.
