Re: Naturalizations France #france

Daniella Alyagon

Good evening,


I have received from a family member the actual decrete of naturalization. How do I put in the request to receive the complete file?

Due to COVID 19 I have no way to travel to Paris in the near future. Is it possible to order document scans from the archive?

Free Lecture in English from the National Library of Israel: "The Early Modern Memorbuch: Memory, Charity and Community" #announcements #events

Phil Goldfarb

Almost every European Jewish community, whether large or small, possessed a special book in which community members were memorialized, both in writing and in synagogue liturgy.

These "Memorbucher" are full of historical treasures, especially when we explore who was included in the volumes, who was omitted, how men and women were remembered, and what these manuscripts reveal about charity, gender, and community in early modern Europe.

Join us this coming Monday, November 30th at 7pm Israel time / 5pm London time / 12pm EST for

"The Early Modern Memorbuch: Memory, Charity and Community"

A special talk focusing on two Memorbucher from the National Library of Israel collections, one from Worms and one from Frankfurt am Main.

With Professor Debra Kaplan, Israel and Golda Koschitzky Department of Jewish History and Contemporary Jewry, and Director of the Halpern Center for the Study of Jewish Self-Perception, Bar Ilan University

Newbie looking for a Jewish ancestor in a non Jewish family #unitedkingdom


Hi everyone,

My name is Tanya and I come from a pretty standard non Jewish lineage in London, and S E England, UK.

Recently I spoke with a cousin of my Mum’s, Carol. My Mum was born 1944 and Carol in 1945 so they were very close. Sadly Mum died in 2001 so Carol is the last in my Mum’s paternal family to speak to. 

Carol told me that my G G grandad’s wife was Jewish. I haven’t been able to find anything to prove this. They were married in an Anglican Church in London in 1880. So I’m guessing she converted to Christianity. Would this have meant she was cut her off from her family? The marriage certificate gave her father’s name but I  haven’t been able to find either of them in any searches, including on JewishGen. 

If anyone has any ideas of where I could possibly find any further information on them I would be very grateful as I am now beginning to doubt that she was Jewish at all.

Thank you in advance
Tanya Young 😊 

Re: looking for information regarding a French cousin - Frédérique ( or Frédéric ) Sternberg #france #records

Dora and Archie RABINOWITZ #southafrica


I am looking for descendants of Dora (nee Ronde) and Archie (Aaron) RABINOWITZ.  Dora died in 1987 and Archie in 1994.  At the time of his death, Archie was survived by children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.  Unfortunately, I do not have any of their names.

In 1984, a voter registration register shows their address as 119 Commissioner Street, Krugersdorp.
I would like to be in contact with anyone who has any ideas on how to find their descendants.  I believe that Dora was my grandfather's cousin.

Thank you,

Re: Young Galician boys forced labor for Russian army during FIRST World War #galicia

Sharon Taylor

Wow, Andrea, thank you for sharing your grandfather’s amazing story.

You mentioned that they returned to Tarnow in 1917, but couldn’t return home until 1918. Who was holding them? Was it the Austro-Hungarian authorities? I’ve read elsewhere that those who did make it back to Galicia were often detained by Austrian officials.

Does anyone else have insights as to what happened to the men and boys who were able to return to Galicia after they were taken by the Russians for forced labor during WWI?
