Charles P Stanton's Genealogy Research - Information Sought #germany

Jeanette R. Rosenberg <106503.3561@...>
 

Does any Gersig member know where the late Charles P Stanton's genealogical
papers might now be located? Or can someone share with me a copy of the relevant
family information? (Charles Perry Stanton 27 Dec 1935 - 27 February 2001,
obituary see page 43 of Stammbaum issue 19 of summer 2001).

The library of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Great Britain (JGSGB) in London
UK holds a 1994 copy of his Concordance of Jewish Families >from Franconia.

In particular, I am interested in seeing a copy of any information available
about the KRAKAUER family >from Fuerth Bavaria, because I am a direct
descendant >from this line.

I have already been in contact with Mrs Gisela Blume >from Fuerth, and have
also established a distant relationship >from this line with Arthur OBERMAYER
with but, as I am sure you can imagine, I am always looking for further
information and other branches of the tree.

Looking forward to a positive response

Jeanette Rosenberg in London UK 106503.3561@compuserve.com

MODERATOR NOTE: Charles Stanton compiled some 2,000 or more trees of families
in Franconia. He did not use a computer and his work is, therefore, not easy
to reproduce. I believe that Karen Franklin has been seeking permission to
preserve Mr. Stanton's wonderful collection in some way.

To Cousin Jeanette Rosenberg and as a memo for our archives:
I suggest that those interested in contributing to the effort
to make the Stanton Collection available contact Karen Franklin
at Leo Baeck in New York. John Lowens, Moderator1

I would give some consideration to Yonah (Jonah). I know your relative was
in Ukraine, but in Romania, that name would have been rendered in Yiddish
as Yoinel, and in Romanian probably as Ion (pronounced Yon).

SCHUBACH Family Connections Sought #germany

Jeanette R. Rosenberg <106503.3561@...>
 

My late maternal grandmother was born Johanna SCHUBACH and her father Adolf
born 24 February 1879 came >from an area that she knew as Muelheim bei Koblenz.

Today this area is better known as as the villages of Muelheim-Kaerlich,
Bassenheim, Urmitz and Weissenthurm, collectively they are part of
Verbandsgemeinde Weissenthurm near Koblenz in Germany.

I recently visited the Koblenz area in my quest for further information about this
branch of my family. >from my visit, I now understand that by far the largest
concentration of people with the SCHUBACH lastname originated in the areas
mentioned above.

During my visit I was able to view a microfilm of the Dezennaltabellen (ten year
index to births marriages and deaths) for the local archive in Bassenheim and I am
still awaiting a reply to a letter I have written to the local archive in
Weissenthurm, where I understand that some of these records may be located, but
understand that not many of the records have survived, for various reasons,
but primarily because Rheinland Pfalz records are neither centralised or preserved
in any way, (according to the Landeshauptarchiv in Koblenz).

I'd be interested in hearing >from anyone with information about or connections
to SCHUBACH family members who originated >from this area, no matter how tenuous
the connection - maybe pooling our combined knowledge will help us to make some
progress!

Jewish Agricultural Colonies #belarus

Nancy Holden
 

In response to the post on JewishGen digest by Alexander Sharon on the
Jewish Farm Colonies in Volhynia and the query by Chuck Flack on colonies in
Southern Russia, I would like to direct researchers to information on
farmers in the Western Governments (which includes Belarus).

Although the site originally concentrated on the Ukraine, it now includes
the farm colonies in the Western Governments. If anyone has stories,
history, geographical information, photographs or questions to post to add
to our website, please contact nholden@interserv.com

Several researchers have contributed to the collection of information at:

2004 and its challenges! #ukraine

Susan E. King <susan.king@...>
 

As we approach the beginning of a New Year, we can look back on 2003 as
a year of historic milestones.

On January 1st, JewishGen affiliated with the Museum of Jewish Heritage
- A Living Memorial to the Holocaust. This affiliation enabled us to put
nearly 1,000,000 new records online. More is available, more is on the
way and more can indeed be realized in the coming year but both
organizations depend completely on the financial support of our
constituents.

While the grass roots efforts behind JewishGen are stronger than ever,
and the generosity of donated material and volunteer time and skills
continues, the level of financial support this year has shrunk to
alarming levels. Usage and demand for additional services continues to
grow, but the financial support required to provide these services has
declined nearly 50%!

For JewishGen to continue to serve our users we MUST have the strong and
continuing financial support >from those who use our services day in and
day out. We would prefer that it remain voluntary as it has been from
the day JewishGen started. However, unless we begin to see a dramatic
turnaround in donations in the coming days, especially >from those who
have never made the commitment, we face some very difficult decisions in
2004.

Your financial support will define JewishGen's future for 2004 and
beyond. It will also define how we set our goals for 2004 and most
importantly how we will go about achieving them.

Each of you hold the key to the material currently online and the
material that will be available to you in the coming months. Let us not
lose sight of what it takes to put and keep material online. Let us not
lose sight of the goals we all share. Please consider a gift to
JewishGen before the end of this year, by visiting the following URL:

consideration and wish everyone a very happy, healthy and prosperous New
Year.

Any one know where I can find the exact locations or maps showing the
following shtetlach:

Komorocz (Ruski Komarivtzi, in Czech-Ruske Komarovce)
Berezna (Velykiy Bereznyi).

They're all near Serednye in the Ukraine and what used to be Slovakia but I

Any other information about them or Yizkor books? Looking for any
information about them.
