Re: Finding image on LDS microfilm from index #general

Harlan Weller
 

I wanted to thank all the individuals who responded to this request with helpful advice.  One person was able to find the record within the microfilm and I have posted it to Viewmate.  It is VM number 82668 (the record numbered 266 on the bottom of the page).
 
As I indicated on the Viewmate entry, I can make out most of the Hebrew side of the record (with the exception of the first word) and it matches information for the name of my great grand aunt and her father's name (Menachem Ber) ,  However, there are a lot more words on the Russian side of the record and I would appreciate any help in translating what is written there.  For example, does this show her husband's name or her mother's name?
 
I appreciate all the assistance that was provided by members of this group, as well as the unnamed indexer from Litvak SIG who made it possible to locate this record..

Re: Photographs of Lodz Cemetery #poland

Hi all,

JewishGen's JOWBR database has more than 3,400 burial records for those buried in the Ghetto Sections.  The identifications were made through by the IDF working with the Yad LeZehava Holocaust Research Institute (YZI) Witnesses in Uniform project. The approximately 3,400 records are out of an estimated 44,000 burials.  Please see https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/admin/jowbr/jowbrcontrol_edit.php?id=POL-02840 for more information on this set of records and perform searches from the JOWBR homepage at https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/  These records are not part of the Lodz Cemetery records jointly prepared by JewishGen and JRI-Poland.

Several years ago I had someone respond to my request for a photo and they sent one. Since then I've send a handful of request emails, all have gone unanswered.

I've setup a Brainin DNA project on FTdna, if you are a Brainin or are descended from one please join. 


I know of a few separate Brainin families who all originate in the same Mogliev/Vitebsk region and are likely all related.

Re: Tombstone Translation #photographs #translation

Debbie Lifshitz
 

  The abbreviation "bet shin/ sin tet" on a tombstone almost always means "Be'sayvah Tovah" which translates to "in good old-age", and refers to people who lived to the concept of "old age" at that time, usually well beyond the average life expectancy of the period.
Bet-sin- tet has nothing to do with shem tov (unless it's earlier in the text referring to a person's virtues) or be'sha'a tova, (in a good hour) which to my knowledge is never ever used for someone's death, and is reserved for happier occasions such as births, engagements, bar-mitzvah, weddings...
Hope this helps all those who do such a marvelous job deciphering tombstones...! (and get to it earlier than me!!)

Re: Iasi , Romania research #romania

Nina Tobias
 


Hello Teodora,
I thought about contacting you privately but decided that there could be others who might somehow be connected to the two families I am researching

Both of my maternal grandparents came from Iasi. My grandfather was Leon Swarttz (b. 1876); son of Fischel (b. approx 1842) and mother most probably named the equivalent of Rose. There were two other children that I know of: Max (b.1862) and Clara (b.1878) I have had no success finding any documentation regarding my great-grandmother, nor have I been able to break through the wall on Fischel's side. 

My grandmother came from a large family - there were nine children that I know of. Their parents were Wolf (Lupu) Horowitz (b. approx 1836) and Aurelia (Goldie) (b. approx 1838). Wolf's parents' names (best guess) were Isidor and Rebecca. Aurelia's parents' names per her burial record were Yaakov and Lifshe. The name Barber figures into this family and is possibly Aurelia's maiden name. I have the names and some of the birth years for the children. If that information would assist you in your research, please contact me privately.

I am hoping you might find marriage and/or birth records - but the truth is that anything you might be able to find would be most welcome. 

With thanks,
Nina Tobias

Frustrating thing with the http://www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/ce/ghetto/lodz-ghetto-cemetery.htm
is by the sites own admission, it is an incomplete list.  The dates seem to stop at the end of 1941  I need a date from July 1942.  The family member is listed on the hospital death records and on his Abmeldung as having died.  I presume he is buried in the Ghetto field and I would love to know the plot number.  Have been to Lodz and want to return.


Thanks

Re: Archives of Ukraine records #ukraine

The sheer number of Russian language documents being posted on Alex Krakovski's Ukraine wiki will take several years to index and transcribe, based on the number of volunteers Ukraine Research Division has that can do the work.  While we are experimenting with an Artificial Intelligence (AI) solution, we are not satisfied yet that it can do the job.  If you can help, please let us know.
