My brain was on JOWBR cemeteries regarding complete sections. Not such issue with the plaques. I work on both and the 59 JOWBR cemeteries I am creating the HTML for were still on my mind. Both go to Nolan

A few years ago I had my students copy down the information on all of the synagogue's memorial plaques.  I had been to a conference and learned about an ongoing effort to record these names somewhere in case of synagogue closure, merger, etc.  To whom do I submit this information?

It's Your America: The 1940 Census Today Zoom and You Tube #announcements

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

 

Eighty years ago, the census of 1940—the 16th in the nation’s history—was carried out beginning in April. The 1940 census forms a critical link to our shared past and provides a window into an American world only one year away from being engulfed by war. It would also hold both immediate and long-lasting ramifications for the country and its citizens, some of which have only recently begun to come to light. 

 

11AM CT today  https://zoom.us/j/99592530846\

 

If you’re unable to join live today, recordings of all their lectures are uploaded to YouTube after initial broadcast   https://www.youtube.com/wwiimuseum

 

Thank you to Randy Fishbein for informing us about this.

Re: Seeking genealogical resources for Milicz (Militsch) SW Poland #poland

sfalkjd@...
 

You can also consider materials in the archive of the Centrum Judaicum in Berlin.  It contains a large part of the materials collected by the Gesamtarchiv dear Deutschen Juden zu Berlin.  The catalogue of this archive is in the form of a 2-volume book: Quellen zur Geschichte der Juden in den Archiven der neuen Bundesländer: Stiftung "Neue Synagoge Berlin Centrum Judaicum"

(I think I have checked the excellent index for Militsch records, but I do not recall how extensive the materials are for this town.)

Re: "Mother" (But Not "Husband") On a Married Woman's Grave #general

laurie.budgar@...
 

I have a similar quandary. I have a husband & wife who were second cousins, and are buried side-by-side. Her stone says "beloved sister" and his stone doesn't have any familial notes -- just his name and date of death, along with the usual Hebrew inscriptions. In this case, he died before she did, so I always assumed whoever buried her was a sibling. I also wondered, though, if maybe the family disapproved of their union (or the fact that he was something of a ne'er-do-well) and that's also why it didn't say "beloved wife." Would the cemetery still have records on who paid for their burials? Does the fact that they're both buried in the Hebrew Free Burial Cemetery change things? (I always thought that was for the indigent -- so if there was a sibling to pay for the burial why was she put there? Simply because her husband was?)

The Record matching at Ancestry and MyHeritage are very valuable.

....... very often the data collected by commercial genealogical companies is useless. Therefore, I have not bothered to be a member of any of these companies. My experience regarding my own collection of genealogical data (based mostly on official documents) is rather irritating. My data has been leaked to two such companies without my permission, and one of them is keeping sending me (via a family member) "new matchings" or "supplements" which most of the time can be characterized as rubbish. I would advise anybody interested in collecting reliable genealogical data to treat with the utmost suspicion anything these commercial companies are responsible for.

I could not have said it better. Like Prof. Gath, i've found it a huge waste of time to look in those commercial databases. To pay them money as a subscriber is adding insult to injury. Reminds me of the old database saying 'garbage in, garbage out', and then paying for the garbage. Like Gath some outdated versions of my own family data has somehow—to my great dismay— ended up in them.

Hello Moses,
I recently did a biography of a friend whose maiden surname is Militscher. She lived in that area, mainly Breslau, until in 1938 the family escaped from Breslau and made it to British Mandate Palestine. I never found documentation of exact roots of their family before Ostrowo, although I would assume they have some connection with the town from whom they drew their surname. I have further info. on Ostrowo. I would also suggest YIVO in NY. When they escaped, they left behind a grandmother and other relatives. I do not know where they are buried and if cemetery records for them have been found, but I could ask the family.Let me know if any of this has interest for you. Perhaps one other lead would be  Theresienstadt Martyrs Remembrance Association in Givat Chaim, Israel.


Re: passenger manifest missing/not indexed/ Australia #general

My greatgrandfather wrote on his application for naturalisation in Australia that he arrived on15th March 1888 on the ship Talavera. This did not seem to be correct. After much searching for dates when the Talavera arrived in Australia in the Australian historical newspapers Shipping News columns (a great source of information via the website of TROVE), I managed to deduce that he actually arrived on the 12th March 1889. But the ship left England on the 27th December 1888 and this is obviously why the mistake was made.

RAND from Lutowiska #galicia #general

Henny
 

Does anyone recognize someone on the attached picture dated circa 1930. It must be a gathering from the Rand family. My grandfather Schmuel Rand was born in Lutowiska December 14, 1883 from ELIYAOU DAVID RAND and ZISSEL EISENBERG born in LUTOWISKA. ELIYAOU DAVID RAND was married a second time. My grandfather was a Cohanim.

Before WWI many people from Galicia said they were from Austria. Consider the town of Rybotycze which is now in Poland.
