I need help finding my dad's family Surname MISZTA #general

snoozebuttons@...
 

I have been looking for my Grandfathers side for over 20 yrs! I found my
dad thru my dreams/visions he was killed in 2001, it was covered up to look
like suicide, only met him 1 time. All I had was my dad's super faded birth
certificate and adoption papers both >from France. I can find other people
easily but just not my relatives!

I don't know if my grandfather was Jewish, but he either died in France or
Germany and I don't know if he was military or not. I have posted on many
boards/forums over the years but too many dead ends.

Over the years someone in France sent me my Grandfathers death certificate
along with pic of my dad in Germany, but the dates don't add up. I don't
know if it's legit or not. I have been told many lies in my search. My
dreams I use to write down and a French research community asked me many
times when did I leave France? They helped me a lot, by putting my dreams
together in a place I have never been to!

I am looking for Richard Georges MISZTA his father was Joseph MISZTA and
his mother was Caroline OKEKSIAK both deceased according to the French
death certificate. Richard Miszta's death certificate is >from Montargis
(Loiret) France - April 13 1956 died at 25, rue Jean Jaures. He was born at
Zawiercie Poland, July 20, 1921. I have a picture of Richard and his wife
Gisele with his 3 kids in 1954 or 1955 in France.

I have heard stories about him being in Poland Army, he changed his name
so he wouldn't get caught being Jewish, he died in Germany and his plane was
shot down, all his relatives perished in the katyn fire.

I don't speak French or Polish, but over the years I have been able to figure
some out! I have searched for MISZTA and MISTA. I have a friend who translated
many letters to many MISZTA's in Poland thru Facebook, but most tell me not to
look at the past and no one can help me they never heard of those names before.

My dad's name was Dominique Philippe MISZTA born in Paris France died in
Corvallis, OR.

Re: Family Names / Tombstone pictures #general

Try FindAGrave.com - if there's no page there for the person but you
have info that they're buried there, simply start a page for them
(you'll need to become a [free] member), and "request a photo". These
requests are very spotty though - sometimes they come through, sometimes
not - the good thing is that your request **stays there**, and if years >from
now someone takes a picture, you get notified. (Of course, you want
these quickly, and this won't solve that - but...my advice is still
good: making a page on FaG is always a good thing to do when you find
out where someone is buried. Even if you don't have a lot to put there.)

....Is it possible that anyone that lives in the area and has the time, can
you take a trip to the cemeteries and take pictures of their tombstones for
me....

Passenger List #general

lenard
 

Can anyone of you suggest to me how I might be able to access particular
passeger lists? I am particularly interested about the last
few Naples (Italy) to United States transatlantic sails just before the
coming of World War II in 1939?

You may reply privately, and I will be grateful.

On the Lutsk (Luck) city page on Wikipedia you can read that in 1939
"[a]pproximately 7,000 of the city's inhabitants (mostly Poles) were
deported in cattle trucks to Kazakhstan[...]".

Is there any kind of documentation of this mass deportation to
Kazakhstan? I know that my grandmother (born RYWIEC/RIWEC) and
grandfather (born KON) went to Kazakhstan and lived there until the
war ended but I have very little information about how they got there
and back.
Deportation of Polish citizens to the East by Soviets took place during
1939 to 1941 in four stages with the following estimated numbers of deportees:

February 1940, 200 to 250 thousand
April 13/14, 1940, 240 to 320 thousand
May-July,1940, 220 to 400 thousand
May-June,1941, 200 to 300 thousand

Polish historiography has obviously overestimated number of the deportees
since following the opening of Russian archives it has been revealed that
320 000 have been deported.

What is important to realize is that Jewish Polish deportees were the bulk
of Polish Jewry that have survived Holocaust in addition to a smaller number
of our people that have managed to survived Holocaust in occupied Poland.

Deportees have been released >from the labour camps following the August 1941
amnesty (Sikorski - Maiski Pact. Some of ex deportees have been accepted to
join Polish pro-British Anders Army and have escaped with their families
to Palestine, some have joined pro-Soviet Polish Kosciuszko Army and fought
alongside Red Army way through Poland.

Rest of the deportees have repatriated to Poland in two stages, first just
after the war in 1945-6, and again in 1955 to 1959.

DNA, trees, and COHEN/NEWMAN connections #general

Scott Ehrlich <scott@...>
 

In a more specific attempt to isolate my COHEN/NEWMAN line, I know my
Cohen great grandfather had several children, my grandfather being one
of them, and my family has not been in contact with families of the
other siblings of my grandfather.

I have an open family tree on ancestry.com and am happy to send an
invite to anyone who requests one - scott@ehrlichtronics.com or
srehrlich on Ancestry.

If anyone there looks familiar and you can convince them to take a DNA
test, please let them know I exist and have a look at my tree as well.

Thanks so much.
