#czech #Borsice #Help #research #Guide #LandRecords

jmhrlaw@...
 

I live in the U.S. and my mother and grandmother, both of whom are deceased, immigrated to the U.S. in 1939 and 1940 as  a result of the Nazi invasion of Austria. I am researching my family history on my grandmother’s side of the family. My grandmother was born in Borsice, the Czech Republic. I believe her sisters and some of their children died in the holocaust. I need help with the following:

 

1.     My husband, I and our adult children would like to visit the Czech Republic and need a guide who speaks English and Czech and is familiar with the area to travel with us to visit Borsice and possibly the small towns in the area to find graves or information about the family.

2.     Related to the visit, I may need some help doing research about the family in advance of the trip.

3.     I was notified some time ago that I inherited some land in the Borsice area. The correspondence is in Czech. I need a person knowledgeable about land transactions to research the status of the property and to advise on what I need to do about it.

Josef Saal b. 1894

Any chance you can help here?


Pinkas Krinki

Avrum Lapin
 

Temple Sholom of Ontario (California)  has available a copy of the book Pinkas Krinki published in Israel in Hebrew and Yiddish in 1970.  There is text and photos. The binding is  in good condition but the book has some moisture damage.  Many libraries and museums have copies in their holocaust collections.

We acquired the book along with old prayer books from some one who was cleaning out an ancestor's home. 

Our first choice would be to give it to a recognized public collection  but others interested may inquire,

We expect the recipient to pay shipping and  hope for a donation.

More on USCIS Fee Increases

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Jbonline said many of the records are available at National Archives.  This is WRONG!  USCIS has not transferred the records over to the National Archives . Please read the coalition website for  ACCURATE information https://www.recordsnotrevenue.com/issues/

 

“Why is USCIS still holding on to and charging fees for access to records that should already be at the National Archives (NARA), or which already exist at NARA but are withheld from the public due to restrictions placed by USCIS? Do USCIS and NARA have any plans to transfer these historical records and make them available at NARA?

 

    Visa Files and Registry Files, both subject to the proposed $625 total fee, became eligible for transfer to NARA in April 2019. Where are they? Does USCIS plan to collect $625 apiece when these records should already be available to the public at NARA?

    Alien Registration Forms, subject to the proposed $240 fee, exist on microfilm at NARA but remain unavailable because of a USCIS restriction. When will this be lifted?

    A-Files of immigrants born more than 100 years ago should be at NARA, as per USCIS' own 2009 records retention schedule. Why must we still request A-files from USCIS for new fees of up to $625?”

 

Please don/t assume about what is and is not available at the National Archives.

Looking for town "Cardal", probably near Bacau. #romania

Mark London <mrl@...>
 

Hi - My great grandfather was born in Bacau. He had a brother Samuel
GOLDENSTEIN, who arrived in 1900.His 1910 naturalization declaration
says that he was born in "Cardal". Does anyone know what town this
might be referring to? It is clearly written that way.

On the other hand, it lists that he arrived >from Bremen, on the ship
"Freeman La Grass" on about April 10, 1900. I don't have a clue as to
what ship that name is referring to.

Thanks for any help.

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on JewishGen's Facebook page

Bruce Drake
 

“The next morning, the Brzeziner ghetto was empty of children.”

This one sentence from “There Once Was a Jewish Shtetl Brzezin” from the Yizkor book of Brzeziny, Poland is one of the heart-stopping reminders of the inhumanity of the Germans as they occupied Jewish towns. It started with house searches and looting, round-ups for work, insults, humiliation, beatings, and torture. Jews were stripped of the last remnants of their possessions. The Germans “wanted women, and the Judenrat had to provide women.” For a while, time went by with daily hardships and cruelties, “one could say, 'normally.' We somehow survived,” wrote the author of this account.

Then, in 1942, the order was given by an SS commander that mothers had to bring their children, up to the age of ten, to him. Mothers and children remain in the town square until 3 a.m. when a great commotion began and “the SS men tear the children away from their mothers … Children scream and cry, “Mama, I want to go with you, Mamusia.” … The mothers plead, “Take us along also; we want to go together with our children.”

“Several days later, they did the same thing to the grown-ups that they did to the children … Within a short time later, the Brzezin ghetto was liquidated – Brzezin was cleansed of Jews.”

Trudy Barch
 

Dora Krasnowsky was born in Russia 1890-1910;  Maurice A. Anderson was born 1903 in Minnesota.  They married 1930-1935…the younger family thinks in Chicago.

According to the 1940 Inglewood, Los Angeles, California census (no children) in 1935 they lived in same place.  They never had children.

I can not find death dates, cemetery, obits (if they had) for either of them.   I tried FindaGrave, Los Angeles times, Jewish Journal,  familysearch.

Any other suggestions where I can look?

 

Thank you,   Trudy Barch,  FLorida

 


Re: Deportations from France #france #holocaust

Bernard Flam
 

Hi from Paris,
Jean, you're right for the first pages of "Memorial de la Shoah" web site but when you "search a person" (deportee, resistant, etc.) it's only in French.
As I am often at Memorial (we organize commemorations and the yearly "Forum of Shoah's generations"), I will transfer to President Fredj the previous post of Geoff Ackerman from Melbourne in order to have "search pages" translated in English.
