I have a photo of my great grandfather Kopul Brotman.  I think he lived in Verbovets, Ukraine.  The photo has a document with some lettering on it.  Does anyone know what language it might be and what it says?  Thanks

Even more poignant is the fact that only 729 Jewish children could be found and sent to England … despite the offer of taking 1000

Re: German "JUDEN UND DISSIDENT" baptism/christening certificates for Jews? #germany

Rodney Eisfelder
 

Wesetx,
There are two parts to your question. In Germany, religions were funded by a proportion of taxes. Everyone was a member of the religion into which they were born - unless they formally renounced their membership, becoming either a member of another recognized religion or becoming a dissident. For some places - especially Berlin, the registers of Jews and Dissidents are filed together.
As to the other part of your question, some collections of genealogical records treat births and baptism /christening records as being the same thing. This is due to the biases of the orginizations that have created the collections.
You have to take each record on its merits, and examine it to see what it really is. Personally, I find it offensive when a Beschneidung (circumcision) register is grouped with baptisms and christenings, but I have to get over it and take the records for what they really are. And often, a Beschneidung register is really a birth register - one date column is left blank for the girls.

And lastly, sometimes there really are collections of baptisms/christening of Jews - those are conversions.       I hope this helps a little.

Hello,
I don't know if this will help but Tzvi Dov WINOGRAD halevi BARNETT married to Ida (???). These names appeared on the death certificate as the parents of my paternal grandmother Yetta Winograd PINKUS who died in 1931.  Place of birth for all was written as Russia.
Happy Passover,

Check the dates carefully. Often, the brit milahs were recorded as baptisms…. If the ‘baptism’ occurred 8 days after birth it was the brit.

Roiza Baier married Shmuil Benin in Kovno in 1897.  Her father's name is listed as Orel Baier.
Does anyone know what Orel corresponds to in Yiddish or Hebrew? Could it connect to Aryeh or Aron?

I saw this program, but I wondered what happened to the children after they left Windemere. Obviously they stayed in England, but did they go to individual families?

Elesavetgrad cemetery in Washington, DC #usa

David W. Perle
 

Hi, all.  Might anyone have contact info for Elesavetgrad cemetery in Washington, DC?  There are requests for photos of graves that I'd love to visit and fulfill, as I've done in the past.  A couple of years ago, I met a gentleman who arrived when I was there and turned out to be an overseer of the grounds, and happened to have had his binder with him of grave locations, which helped me with my last couple of names that visit.  I left a message a week ago on the number posted on the front gate, and I've googled for additional contact info but stuff that comes up seems to be outdated.

Leiser REISEN> Louis Reisen or Raisch or Resin Missing Brother #ukraine #russia #usa

murphy8@...
 

Leiser Reisen was born about 1875 in Russia>Ukraine, immigrated to New York from Poltava Gub (Priluki or Pereyaslav) in 1899.  Married Sara Krawitz in 1906. In his marriage record, his mother is listed as Beile Lodin and father is Samuel Resin.  His mother had children with another father, last name being Kanower > Cohen and she later remarried Polonetzki.  He is not the Louis Reisen in NY who is from Romania and shows up in searches.

I am having difficulty finding him after 1906.

Can anyone help me find this elusive ancestral brother?
Any help, suggestions, etc would be greatly appreciated.

Re: The Windemere Children--Child Survivors of the Holocaust #holocaust #unitedkingdom

I know one of the survivors well. The programme is pretty accurate particularly the scenes where they have their first meal after arrival, go cycling in their underwear while waiting for supplies of clean clothes, and Arek's relationship with his girlfriend. The Polish actors spent much time with the survivors before filming. The scenes at the end are very moving.

Watch out for a sequel from the BBC - The Windermere Children - in their own words

For more on Arek's story scroll down the Stories page on www.holocaustlearning.org.uk

Very moving, and after the program is a one-hour documentary with interviews of some of the children, including little Bela!

Hi Moses,
The parents of a friend of mine were from the town of Michalany in Slovakia, during WWII. Slovakia was then part of Czechoslovakia Republic (CSR). Most of the town people were Jewish and Hungarian / Slovakian speakers.  Michalany is known now as Michalovce in Slovakia (near Kosice).

Sorry Marilyn, it was my typo. The birth year should be 1885 (not1895) as you can read in Friedl's birth registration. It does make sense.
