Unfortunately are correct. Alot of records that were available at one point have been withdrawn. It seems we are going backwards on this.

A New and Interesting Book about the Bialystok Ghetto

Mark Halpern
 

VOICES from the BIALYSTOK GHETTO by Michael Nevins

For more than 70 years a diary that was written in Bialystok during World War II was virtually unnoticed and about to be discarded with trash when someone looked inside and discerned its historic value. It was written between 1939 and 1943 by young David Spiro (in Polish Dawid Szpiro) who probably died during his city’s ghetto uprising against the Nazis. The diary described life in the city during Russian and then German governance from the perspective of an ordinary young man - certainly not a charismatic leader. As David explained, “If someone reads my diary in the future, will they be able to believe something like that? Surely not, they will say poppycock and lies, but this is the truth, disgusting and terrible; for me it’s a reality.” With permission from the current owners, much of David Spiro’s poignant first-hand account is reproduced here along with memoirs written by other Bialystokers who lived and mostly died during those terrible times.

Michael Nevins is a retired physician and medical historian who has been studying his family's roots in Dabrowa Bialostocka for many years. In 1982, he published a memorial (Yizkor) book about his family's ancestral shtetl. This new book was prompted by reading the Dawid Szpiro diary. 

I highly recommend this new publication. It is readily available from most online book sellers in paper and e-book formats.

Re: Looking for help please - searching great grandparents

Susan Millar
 

Hello,

Yes, this is my family.   They went by the surname Albeitman - apart from this census, hence my confusion as to which is the correct surname.

Polley is actually my grandmother Pauline.  This leads me to think the enumerator misunderstood Mark’s accent?.

I would like to find them before they arrived in the UK.

Thank you for your reply.
Susan

GERNSHEIM is an old Jewish family name in Worms and Mainz,
Germany. The Nazis murdered many.
Try as I might I find no one with that surname today. Google brings
only the town of that name whence presumably the Jewish name was
taken originally when they adopted family names. Did the Nazis
succeed in eradicating this family?
Can anyone here elaborate on these findings and teach me further please?

ViewMate translation request - Russian #lodz #poland

Dear Researchers:

I have identified two records relating to my great great grandparents,
living in Brzeziny or Glowno, Poland, in the 19th century.
I request a complete translation of two extracted texts posted on Viewmate,
at the following addresses:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM76555 (Russian)
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM76599 (Polish)
I am hoping these records will include information on where they and their
parents lived.

Please kindly respond using the online ViewMate form.
I am truly grateful for your time and effort.
Thank you so much,

Governmental sources in Rostov #lithuania

dennis gelpe
 

My grandfather and GGF came >from Vilna. Using the resources provided
by LitvakSIG via JewishGen, I have been able to trace my lineage as
far back as my GGGF. Thanks!

Recently though, I have been in contact with people who I believe are
related, same family name [passport family name of one family
member,in Cyrillic, is the same as on my GF's internal passport], same
origins, yet live/have lived in Rostov since sometime around WW2.
Sadly, there is no one alive, in that branch of the family who knows
anything about their family other than the name of an ancestor who
lived somewhere >from 187- to 1916 (?), and are not sure whether he was
the first relative to arrive in Rostov. Thus we have not been able to
ascertain a common ancestor, the name is unusual enough.

My question is whether anyone knows if there are governmental
immigration or residential sources in Rostov that could indicate
origins of residents or names with dates.

Re: 2019 Yizkor Book Project Review #yizkorbooks

Joan A. Baronberg
 

I would like to take this opportunity to Heartily thank all who are involved with making the Yizkor project the incredible contribution it has been and continues to be. I feel confident it has changed lives, gratified readers, and made an effect on history. I have read and continue to read Yizkor books (in English translation) and excerpts and constantly learn from them. I am regularly amazed at our ancestors, particularly their insights and endurance, and find them a miraculous role model—even when their behavior is not divine. Thank you so much to the Yizkor Book project coordinators, managers, translators and other volunteers for their endless hours of tremendous work in the past, present, and future.

Looking for help please - searching great grandparents

Susan Millar
 

To the best of my knowledge, my great grandparents , Marks Albeitman and Esther M Pfeffer, left Poland and settled in London, UK , in the early 1900’s.   


They arrived with two children, Samuel Harry & Renee Rachel.  They went on to have three more children, Eva, Pauline. ( my grandmother) and Angel.

I have been told recently, that Albeitman would more likely have been Arbeitman.

My mother and I have recently taken Family Finder tests.  We both have a lot of matches.  I recognise none of the family names of my matches and those I contacted, do not recognise Albeitman or Pfeffer.

My great grandparents are buried together in a Jewish cemetery in London.  I have been told that the inscriptions on the headstone name both of their fathers ‘Abraham’.

I have no idea where to head next to establish my connections.

Any suggestions would be most welcome. 

Thanks in advance

help finding documents / relatives #bessarabia #latinamerica

Duda Felinkoski
 

I am looking for documents or relatives. My great-great-grandfather left Bessarabia towards Latin America in about 1913, he and two brothers arrived in Uruguay and then came to Brazil (he was 15 at the time). In 1925 he married my great-great-grandmother, also of Jewish origin, but from Poland. Between 1925 and 1927 there was a persecution movement and many documents were lost or burned. So there are no memories left of my family, all I have are some pictures and I recently found 2 rabbis with the same surname, born at around the same time: Rabbi Shmuel Filinkowski from Odessa (Ukraine) and Rabbi A. Filinkovski from Kishinev (Moldova). If anyone knows anything about my family please send me.
