Thank you, Joel! There should be one or more skilled moderators for this list and all others that JewishGen sponsors. However, those who send messages need to pay attention to what they’re doing. An informative subject line is essential, surnames (and nothing else) need to be in upper case, and, if one is responding to a previous message, the original message should be copied and pasted as a quotation.

Re: Passenger arrival records


I believe I may have found the Shlissel family on Ancestry's Canadian Border Crossings.  The ship is the Tunisian, arriving Quebec  on May 19, 1900. 
Destination is Pincus Shlissel 340 Hastings St. Detroit. There are two other families on the same manifest going to that same address.

Re: DNA ethnicity


Hi Ellen,  Thank you for taking to trouble to reply. I've made a note of The "Great Purge" for my reading. 
My mother definitely believed that Siberia was the end for her parents and they were never heard of again. I hadn't realised myself until recently that some survived Siberia or escaped.

Re: Once upon a time there was a moderator for this group.....


Mr. Ives,

You said it all so well!

I find it amusing that your one typo -- I didn't go looking, but it just jumped out at me -- is genealogy-related.  You suggest that a composer check the "spelling, punctuation, and the gramma ...".   Shouldn't Gramma be capitalized?  And why leave out Grandpa?


Now if people will only follow your valuable suggestions.

Re: Looking for help please - searching great grandparents

Marks d 16/7/40 & Esther Milly d 20/11/52 Albeitman are buried next to each other in Willesden United Synagogue cemetery, section EX, Row 16, Plots 852/3. Next time I'm there I will take photos for you.

By chance, I am in the National Archives, Kew, and found there is only a naturalisation record for Samuel Harry. I have ordered one to view in 30 mins and will photograph it and send to you privately. I have taken the liberty of submitting a Freedom of Information request for a closed record for SH which should be dealt with in a few weeks. I hope that is OK.

Passenger arrival records

Diane Jacobs

First, I trust you phonetically searched for the both surnames below on NYC Passenger Manifests



Next since they went to Detroit, you also should search phonetically using for the

Canadian Border Crossings and the Canadian Passenger Manifests for many immigrants came that

way to get to Detroit.


After that you should search for all the other cities of entry using


Good luck.

Re: The Zamosc Memorial Book is now On Line

Phyllis Berenson

Thank you so much for your translation!  My maternal grandfather, Isaac (Yitzchak) Finkelstein was born in 1889 in Zamosc and lived there until he left for the US in the early 20th century.  He was on the sub-committee for this book.  We have Finkelstein relatives in Israel who have the original book, but it's wonderful that now our English-speaking family can read it.

Gesher Galicia SIG

January 27, 2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the liberation of
Auschwitz. Between now and February 22, but mainly between January 27
and 31, a series of commemorative events is planned in 35 towns in
southeastern Poland, under the auspices of the Marshal of Podkarpackie
[Subcarpathian] voivodeship, Wladyslaw Ortyl.

The complete list of towns and villages is: Baranow Sandomierski,
Blazowa, Czudec, Debica, Dukla, Dynow, Glogow Malopolski, Gniewczyna
Lancucka, Grodzisko Dolne, Jankowice, Jaroslaw, Jasionka, Jaslo,
Jodlowa, Kraczkowa, Krosno, Lezajsk, Lubaczow, Markowa, Mielec,
Niebylec, Pruchnik, Przemysl, Przeworsk, Rudnik nad Sanem, Rymanow,
Rzeszow, Sanok, Stalowa Wola, Tarnobrzeg, Tyczyn, Tryncza, Ustrzyki
Dolne, Zagorz, and Zarszyn-Nowosielce. There will be talks, including
by Holocaust survivors, musical performances, exhibitions, church
services, and various other commemorative events.

The driving force behind this program, as in earlier years, is the
Department of Jewish History and Culture at the University of Rzeszow,
under Prof. Waclaw Wierzbieniec, who is also an Archival Advisor to
Gesher Galicia. Many other institutions, though, are also involved in
the sponsorship and organization of events, including municipal
councils, cultural centers, schools, teacher training colleges,
historical societies, organizations for the preservation of Jewish
heritage, museums, and local community groups.

One of the many people involved in the series of events throughout the
region is Gesher Galicia member Nina Talbot. On January 29, she and
Mark Rand will take part in the opening ceremony of the commemoration
events in the town of Dynow, held at the town's High School, with
their talk 'We lived together with you'.

questions regarding Poland travel #poland

Leah Kushner

Hi All

I have been planning a 10-day Jewish heritage trip to Poland for
almost a year now. The trip begins this April. We are working with a
Krakow genealogist with a degree in Jewish Polish history. I put
together the itinerary. We are having Shabbat with the local Krakow
JCC. It is a small group of 14 >from Santa Cruz. We are traveling
with a Rabbi.

I would like to talk to anyone who has traveled to Poland as I
have some logistical questions about the shtetl's we are
visiting, synagogues, cemeteries, and some questions about
restaurants, Klezmer, etc. Please write me privately. Also if
anyone is interested in joining us please write me privately as well.
Most of the people traveling have Polish roots.
