I've posted marriage records >from JRI-Poland for which I need an interpretation.
What do the middle letters R and F stand for in the male's surname. Please note
that for Simche's parents, the surnames are interchanged. They should be Josel
BOLTUCH and Breincie SCHRAGA.

It is on ViewMate at the following address .

Online Memorial to the Jews Deported from France #france

Jean-Pierre Stroweis
 

Hello,

I have posted an online database of the "Memorial to the Jews Deported from
France", available at <https://stevemorse.org/france>.

This search tool provides immediate access to information on the tragic
fate of the 78,000 Jews who were deported >from France/died in internment
camps in France or were shot in France during the Nazi occupation and the
Vichy regime.

The database is built >from Serge Klarsfeld's Memorial de la Exportation
des Juifs de France, 2012 version. It includes corrections he made since
2012, as well as additional information aimed to identify the precise
birthplace of these men, women and children.

The site is bilingual (English/French) and also presents Klarsfeld's
preface to the 2012 Memorial.

The search engine was built thanks to Steve Morse's One Step Search
Application and it is hosted on his web site.

I will introduce the tool at the coming IAJGS conference in Warsaw in a
session entitled ">from Where Came the Holocaust Victims of France? Extended
Klarsfeld's Memorial as Online Searchable Database" to be held on Thursday
August 9 at 8:00 am.

Connecting the WEILERS of Oberhausen (Wallhalben) and Steinbach am Glan #germany

MJTuteur@...
 

Several JewishGenners have connections to ancestors named WEILER,
one branch of which lived in Oberhausen and the other in Steinbach
am Glan (both in the Pfalz). So far, we have been unable to find
a definitive connection, even though the Oberhausen WEILERS married
into the TRIEFUS (TREIFUS) family, also of Steinbach am Glan.
We recently confirmed that, among the several "Oberhausens" that
exist in this area, the definitive origin town for the Oberhausen
branch is the one that was later incorporated into the municipality
of Wallhalben. We are interested in hearing >from others who know
about Oberhausen, Wallhalben or Steinbach am Glan, and who may have
connections or information about the WEILERs. Our goal is to see if
we can find a link between these two branches.

(Note that the MAY or MAI family also married into the WEILER family
several times.)

Searching for KUZINETZ Family Descendants from Slonim #general

David Slater
 

I am searching for descendants of Beila [1893-1977] & Eliezar KUZINETZ
[1886-1975], originally >from Slonim, Belarus, who emigrated to Israel in
1951. Last address Haifa, Israel.

Beila filled out Pages of Testimony [POT] at Yad Vashem for her neighbor cousin
- Isaac DEUTSCH [DAJCZ] & family, as well as, Avraham BUKOVITZKI & family,
all >from Slonim. I am trying to establish how Beila KUZINETZ may be related
to my relatives, the DEUTSCH and BUKOVITZKI families. I do not know Beila's
maiden name.

Beila had two sons, one of which Itzhak BARZILAY (formerly KUZINETZ), lived
in Ashkelon, Israel and had two sons, Sahy & Izzy-Eliezer. They may have
left Israel at some point.

Any information or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Please reply
privately.

Nezhin Metrical (Vital) Records - Quick Links #ukraine

Lara Diamond
 

All,

I've gone through all of the microfilmed (now digitized) vital records
for Nezhin (Chernigov Guberniya) and have made a list of links that
can help you jump to a specific year's birth/marriage/divorce/death
records.

While there are a few missing years and partial years in this set,
these records are almost complete >from the 1850s through 1918. They
are written in both Hebrew and Russian, and with the exception of a
few short time periods, the handwriting is nice and legible.

You can see these quick links at the following URL:

Obtaining NY/NJ Criminal Records from 1920-1930's #general

Steven Koch
 

Has anyone been been successful in looking for an obtaining criminal
records (police investigations/court recordings)? Any
suggestions/hints on doing so? My great Uncle, Michael Robinsky (born
in Brooklyn in 1894 and changed his last name to Robbins) was
apparently quite the criminal element. He did serve time in Sing Sing
prison in 1934 and I have that record. But I have found numerous
newspapers articles about him and his alleged criminal involvement and
I would love to be able to find any police and/or court records. Some
crimes were federal, some state and others local; primarily in the New
York and New Jersey area, but there is also mention of Michigan.

There's a May 22, 1930, Jersey Journal, Jersey City, NJ, news article
that indicates he was arrested in Harlem, NY (for violation of the
Sullivan Law) as a subject for plotting a Silk factory robbery (stole
a truck with $40,000 worth of silk), is suspected of a mail sack
robbery (to include a police shootout) at a Bayonne, NJ post office,
is wanted for questioning in the murder of a bootlegger in Bayonne,
NJ. He apparently went by many names: Michael Robinsly, Michael
Rubinsky, Michael Robbins, Michael Robins, John Reynolds, John Clark
and James Stewart. The article continues on that he had prior arrests
in NY, NJ and MI for: larceny, receiving stolen goods, fugitive from
justice, grand larceny, carrying concealed weapons, hold-up and
robbery and highway robbery. With all those arrests, I am hopeful
that there are some records out there.

I cannot get to NY & NJ to try to review any indexes in person. I
have reached out to: questions@nycourts.gov , NewYork.archives@nara.gov
(they indicated they did find some possible records and am awaiting
further details), nj.archives@sos.nj.gov
By phone to Bronx (NY) County Clerk's Office, Hudson (NJ) County
Criminal Records Division.

So, my simple question is, am I missing an easier way to try and
search for/obtain any criminal record, court records, police files?

Thank you for any assistance/guidance ahead of time.

List of Jews from Medzilaborce, 1939 #hungary

Peter Absolon
 

I have discovered the folder named "Verzeichniss der Juden in
Medzilaborce", dated 01-Aug-1939 in the storage room of Kosice Jewish
community office.

The list is sorted alphabetically and obviously grouped by families.
There are 19 sheets, counting 822 persons. The list contain Surname,
Given name and birth year.

I'm looking for researchers >from that area who would be willing to
participate in the transcription so this list could be later
incorporated into JewishGen databases.

Please contact me privately if you would like to take part in this
small project.
