Zelman Fryzerman #lodz #poland

Elizabeth Erlich
 

Hello everyone,

I'm trying to find a picture of my uncle Zelman Fryzerman. He was born
on July 19, 1925 in Lodz and lived on Aleja 1-go Maja Street no. 59
until his transfer to the Lodz Ghetto. In 1944 he, his parents and
sister Rachela (Ruchla) were transported to Auschwitz. Zelman was then
taken to Schotterwerk and died of disease and starvation in Dornhau in
March 1945 at the age of 19. In August 1984, my parents and I attended
a "World Gathering of Lodzer Holocaust Survivors" in New York. My
mother (Zelman's sister) met a couple of Zelman's friends, but did not
ask for contact information. I'm hoping that someone remembers him and
may have his picture.

If you have any information about Zelman, please contact me privately.

Thank you very much.

Causes of detention - abbreviations #general

Dear Genners,

My great grandparents were listed on a Record of Aliens Held for Special
Inquiry in August 1925. The causes of detention were: "LPC", "PH", and "D".
I know "LPC" means Likely Public Charge but I was unable to find an explanation
for the other two abbreviations even after consulting he JewishGen infofiles.
Quite a few of the other immigrants on that page had the same abbreviations
listed.

Many thanks.

Hi David,

I suggest searching her name at www.fultonhistory.com which is a free site
of old digitized NY newspapers, including The Brooklyn Daily Eagle.

If she was hit by a truck than there could be an article about the
accident.

I'm trying to find the death certificate for my g-gm's

hit by a truck when crossing the street.

Re: Viewmate translation - English! #general

Hello,

I think I can answer why an 1891 record would have a 1942 date. See my
prior question and viewmate 34217 - 34220, especially:
http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/responselist.asp?key=34219
where that 1885 marriage was re-certified in 1941, to prove that he had
Hungarian ancestry for generations.

I've posted a marriage record in English (NY) for which I have two
questions. It is on ViewMate at the following address ...

1. The wedding was on May 17, 1891. Why is the date listed as 10-17-42?
2. Can you decipher the given name of the first witness? (The bride,
Fannie Roth, is >from Vienna or nearby)

Memorial Plaque Project Doubles to More Than 60,000 Records. Please help us continue to grow! #belarus

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2014 pre-Conference Update for the
Memorial Plaque Project (MPP) database. The MPP database can be accessed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/ The MPP database includes the
data >from plaques and Yizkor lists >from synagogue and other organizations.
Many of these sources include patronymic information.

This year, we added more than 30,000 records >from the US, Israel and Canada.
These records come >from 35 different synagogues and other institutions. A
big thank you to the work being done by the JGS of Greater Boston, The
Jewish Historical Society of South Carolina, the JGS of Montreal, and a
number of synagogues and individual donors.

We believe that the MPP is a good example of how users of JewishGen's
databases can "give back". If you are a member of a synagogue or other
organization with memorial plaques or Yizkor lists, please consider helping
us to grow this database. You can find more information on submitting data
at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/Submit.htm If you have
additional questions, please contact me directly.

For a complete listing of the institutions currently in the database, please

JOWBR Grows to Over 2 Million Records #belarus

bounce-2807367-772948@...
 

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2014 pre-Conference update to the JOWBR
(JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial Registry) database. The JOWBR database
can be accessed at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/ If you're a
new JOWBR user, we recommend that you take a look at the first two
explanatory screencasts at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Screencasts/

This update adds approximately 124,000 new records and 25,000 new photos.
The database is adding and/or updating 190 cemeteries. This update brings
JOWBR's holdings to 2.27 million records >from almost 4,400 cemeteries /
cemetery sections representing 85 countries!

Once again, donors for this update include a mix of individuals, Jewish
genealogical societies, historical societies and museums. We appreciate all
our donors' submissions and the transliteration work done by a faithful
group of JewishGen volunteers.

I want to particularly thank Eric Feinstein who has been helping me to find
and gain permission to add many of the German towns in addition to records
from under-represented countries. In addition, without our volunteer
transliterators, led by Gilberto Jugend, we would not be able to add the
information >from some very difficult to read photos.

Significant additions to the database include collections >from Cleveland,
Ohio and surrounding areas, Leeds, England, various German towns, Bialystok,
Poland, Chernigov, Ukraine, Shanghai, China, and an annual update >from the
US Veterans Administration. Please check our online cemetery inventory at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm for a complete
listing.

We appreciate all the work our donors have done and encourage you to make
additional submissions. Whether you work on a cemetery / cemetery section
individually or consider a group project for your local Society, temple or
other group, it's your submissions that help grow the JOWBR database and
make it possible for researchers and family members to find answers they
otherwise might not. Please also consider other organizations you may be
affiliated with that may already have done cemetery indexing that would
consider having their records included in the JOWBR database.
