Terry, I hope you don't mind if I respond [instead of? in addition to?]
Constance. I believe that Bay City MI had a huge Courland population. It
would be wonderful if you could take pictures of the tombstones there.
Anything that is in Hebrew, not to worry, I or others can translate. I am
so impressed that so many of you have come forward with offers to help. I
guess you didn't realize that so few of us were doing all that work. Your
offers are deeply appreciated!

I will be in touch with you privately, Terry, about the cemetery project.
Thank you again!!

Martha

Constance,

I guess MArtha's note got me thinking, too. I do not know how to help, but I
would like to. My Jewish ancestors in this country are largely buried in
Bay City michigan's Hebrew Cemetery. Is there some way I could volunteer to
be responsible for getting pictures of those tombstones??? Would that be what
is needed and would it help? Unfortunately I am not able to translate...

RSVP,

Terry

I will do whatever I can to translate; reproduce; fund, etc. the
preservation of documents.

My husband's family will lead, but an amazing number of Scots-Irish types
will follow on the effort in the preservation of documents which must be
treasured.

Hats off to you, Margaret!! Thank you!! We will be in touch with you
about utilizing your very welcome talents and resources!

Gee, Martha, you surely do sound angry. You're probably right, but I don't
think that all that anger will get us anywhere, except make everyone angry
with you.

Now, where were we?

Allan
Maybe you are right Allan. I wasn't as angry as I am frustrated. There are
so few of us doing so much for the rest that I worried about burnout. One
cannot expect these few people to extend themselves all the time for the
vast majority. As it happens, since my posting we have had a fair number of
people volunteering and I am feeling much better about things.

My major worry is that I believe in trying to reconstruct the families of
Courland who are no more. No country suffered as great a percentage of
murder and disappearance of their Jews as we did in Latvia. Some families
have no witnesses to their very existence; they were all wiped off the face
of the earth. Every soul should have a name; every Jew should be
remembered. And I fear that the ceaseless work the few of us are doing
will wear us down and burn us out. I am also very family oriented and I
love watching the successful reuniting of families who had long since lost
touch. I don't want any of that to be lost. Courlanders share a special
history and a culture that is common to us all; we are, in effect, one big
extended family. So I thought that we could all pull together as a family
and share the load.

I think that we are getting closer to that goal! So "where were we?" -
pulling together toward our common goal!

Re: Hungarian cemeteries #hungary

Last year I visited Losonc (Lucenec), formerly Nograd county, now
Slovakia, where I took pictures in the Jewish cemetery. Some of my
shots can be found on my home page (see address below). I you want to
post them somewhere you are more than welcome to download them. Soon
I will post more of them.

We now have a researcher in Budapest who will be indexing Hungarian
cemeteries for the ONLINE WORLDWIDE BURIAL REGISTRY program, which
you can read about at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/.

Feel free to recommend a cemetery whose gravestones you would like
photographed and the data indexed by writing to Lou Schonfeld. In
addition, please help the project by contributing funds to pay for
the work. The money will be used to pay a modest salary and
expenses to this researcher and to pay for needed equipment for the
project.

Tax-deductible donations should be made to the Photograph Jewish
Tombstones project at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/Hungary.html.

mod. I too had the same question, and Attila responded that he was
referring to the book by Bela Kempelen on Jewish noble families. Messages
that go to the list should be reviewed for clarity and reasonableness.
Also, it seems that I can't remind people enough to snip out
redundant/unecessary narrative when they are responding to questions by
others. The excisions should also include the h-sig/Jewishgen boilerplate

This book is available through the Mormon Family History Centers. I just
ordered it for myself. The film number is 0897093.

Although none of the records indicate that the name change was carried on
through the children, there are notations in the records that Travnicsek
was changed to Mezei in 1895 and the date with the Ministry of Interior's
permit number. >from what I understand there was another name change in
Czech Republic, which changed the name Salek to Travnicsek around 1851! I
believe it is all the same family.
