Malmo Sweden - Jewish Genealogy #scandinavia

Hello,

I am beginning to research a branch of my family who lived in Malmo, =
Sweden during the 1870's and 1880's.=A0 They originally came >from Poland =
(possibly Lomza Guberniya).=A0 A few children were born in Malmo, =
including my great grandfather: Louis DAVIS.=A0=20
Sometime in the 1880's, they immigrated to the USA (New York City).

My problem is this:=A0 I'm not sure of the original family name.=A0 The =
name in America was DAVIS.=A0 Since this is not a particularly Jewish =
name, it seems to me that the original name was something else.=A0 I =

Question: how would I go about finding Swedish records (birth/census, =

2006 GROUP TRIP TO LITHUANIA & NEARBY AREAS #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

I am organizing another group trip to Lithuania -- June 13 - 22, 2006
This will be the 13th group trip I have organized and led to Lithuania.
The June 2005 group trip was to be the last one I was going to organize.
I had 25 in the group and, it was so successful, the word spread. A number
of individuals have asked me to organize another group trip for 2006. I never
say never but frankly, I cannot promise to do more trips in the future.
If you have any thoughts about going to Lithuania, Latvia, or Belarus
now is the time to sign up.

Included - visits to the various Archives, synagogues, ghettos, Holocaust
sites, meetings with Jewish leaders, sight-seeing, guide/interpreters, and
two days to visit and spend time in your shtetl, or shtetlach of interest.
All meals are included (except for one dinner and two lunches), the finest
hotels (new & modern), modern bus with onboard toilet, and much more. I am
very familiar with the Archives, the archivists, Lithuania and the main
places of 20 Jewish interest.

I do not organize these group trips as a profit-making endeavor. Everything
is done at cost but in a deluxe manner. My main object is to encourage
Jews to go back to their roots, to encourage them to research their
ancestors and to enable them to see the rebirth of Judaism taking place in
Lithuania.

IMPORTANT: This trip is sponsored by the American Fund For
Lithuanian-Latvian Jews, Inc. (a 501(c)(3) non-profit). It is not sponsored
or endorsed by Jewishgen or Shtetlshleppers. My previous trip participants
can be contact ed if references are desired.
For details and a full itinerary of the trip, contact Howard Margol, E-mail
homargol@aol.com VERY IMPORTANT: Do not ask about this trip through a
message to the Digest. CONTACT ME DIRECTLY.

Lodz, Poland and surrounding area --searchable databases #poland

Roni S. Liebowitz
 

Recently Joyce Field announced several new databases that are now available
for searching on JewishGen. I thought it would be a good time to review
those of high interest to researchers of Lodz and the surrounding areas in
the Piotrkow Gubernia. Keep in mind that people >from other places around
the country were forcibly transported to the Lodz Ghetto and may be
listed in one these databases.

* "Lodz Transports to the Chelmno Extermination Camp"
Names of 7,168 individuals >from Lodz who were transferred to the death camp
at Chelmno, June-August 1944.

* "Lodz Ghetto Residents Database"
A record of the 240,000 inhabitants of the Lodz Ghetto. Entries may include
Surname, Maiden name (occasionally), Given name, Sex, Date of birth,
Occupation (usually in German, also in Polish), Ghetto address, Apartment
number, and Notes. This last section may include previous address or town,
date of death or deportation (and possibly the transport number).

* Lodz Ghetto Hospital Illness Records"
Entries include over 5,600 persons with contagious diseases in hospitals in
the Lodz Ghetto, Aug-Dec 1940.

* "Lodz Ghetto Hospital Deaths"
There are over 14,000 deaths recorded in hospitals in the Lodz Ghetto, Nov
1941 thru Jun 1944.

For other databases related to the Holocaust, see:
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Holocaust/

* "Jewish Records Indexing - Poland (JRI-Poland)" is a non-profit,
independent organization.
An amazing searchable database that contains over two and a half million
indices to records >from more than 350 Polish towns. This is a must for
searching Jewish birth, marriage, and death indices of the 19th century
records >from current and former territories of Poland. Where such records
are available, they may include towns that are now part of Lithuania,
Ukraine and Belarus. http://www.jri-poland.org

Detailed explanations about each of these databases are available on the
sites. As eager as you may be to jump right in and search the databases,
the results will be much more meaningful and lead to better understanding of

School Records for Sidra #poland

Bialystoker
 

You all recently read the travel journal of Jerry Levit, who visited
Sidra, Bialystok, and Tykocin last month. In his posting about Sidra,
Jerry explained that he, and his guides -- Chris Malczewski and Lucy --
visited the Sidra Grammar School. The Principal gave Lucy his copies of
school records >from before World War II. Lucy made copies and they are
now in BIALYGen's hands. These school records cover the school years
1925/26, 1929/30, 1931/32, 1937/38, and 1939/40. All these records
identify the students by religion and provide dates and places of birth.
Some of the records also record father's or mother's name.

This is a valuable genealogical collection for a town where no Jewish
vital records exist. These records are in Polish and, with a little
experience, can be deciphered by all of us. If you are willing to help
with the data entry for these records into an Excel database template,
please contact me privately.

When Jerry was in Sidra, he visited the a number of people and
institutions in town including the Library and the Grammar School. His
experience points out the need for all of us who visit our ancestral
towns to visit local institutions where goldmines of genealogical value
may be waiting to be uncovered.

Thank you Jerry, Chris, and special thanks to Lucy, a Jewish resident of
Bialystok, who is a great help to BIALYGen.

"How To Find Anyone or Anything on the Internet (almost)!"

A dynamic speaker, Ron Arons was a favorite at the recent Las Vegas conference. He
will review the many vast resources of the Internet, and will show how they can
be used in a variety of ways. According to Ron, one only needs a bit of
creativity to find the treasures, which will help with the family research
process. He will provide many examples to show how anyone's family research
process can be enhanced.

A seasoned genealogist, Ron Arons has traced his roots to England, Poland,
Romania, the Ukraine, Belarus, and Lithuania. A member of the board of the
San Francisco Jewish Genealogical Society, he has given presentations locally and
abroad, including the three past IAJGS annual conferences in London, Toronto, and
Las Vegas.

"How To Find Anyone or Anything on the Internet (almost)!"
.
A dynamic speaker, Ron Arons was a favorite at the recent Las Vegas conference. He
will review the many vast resources of the Internet, and will show how they can
be used in a variety of ways. According to Ron, one only needs a bit of
creativity to find the treasures, which will help with the family research
process. He will provide many examples to show how anyone's family research
process can be enhanced.

A seasoned genealogist, Ron Arons has traced his roots to England, Poland,
Romania, the Ukraine, Belarus, and Lithuania. A member of the board of the
San Francisco Jewish Genealogical Society, he has given presentations locally and
abroad, including the three past IAJGS annual conferences in London, Toronto, and
Las Vegas.
