Hello,
To give credit where due, I believe it was actually Sergii V. Fazulyanov who did the scans for Munkacz.

Looking to hire a genealogist who can help trace ancestors from Germany #germany

Jreissman13@...
 

We are looking to hire a genealogist to trace ancestors in Germany.  Their names are relatively common so confirming details is difficult. However, we do have some information to help the process along.
Thanks,

Re: Would a later born child have the same name as an earlier deceased child? #names

My uncle Arthur Isaac Stern died when his ship was sunk by a Nazi torpedo in the Mediterranean. My cousin Arthur was born after my Uncle's ship was sunk while he was declared MIA. My cousin was named after his great grandfathers just as my Uncle was named. After my Uncle was declared to have died in action two subsequent children were named for him by other siblings of my Uncle. My grandparents were from Romania and the Ukraine.

Where is Voronovitsy? #general

Marilyn Feingold
 

I am looking for information about Sam Rosenthal from Voronovitsy. When he first came to the United States he lived in Pittsburgh as a border. I can't find any more information about him after that.
Any suggestions, anyone? Thank you. Marilyn Feingold

I keep my genealogy on my computer (and yes I do have trees on Ancestry (public but not shared), MH private and my own website (see below).  You can almost always download the document to your computer and if it is not readily available that way, right click and use "save image as".

Sonya's father's name is listed as Hirsch.
Hirsch is the Yiddish word for a deer, and it's not so uncommon for it to have been used interchangeably with the Hebrew name Tzvi which has the same meaning.

Re: Translation of Gravestone written in Hebrew #translation

I think Laurent did a great job on the translations. The part at the beginning of the second stone that was unclear does in fact say להאשה "to the woman" as Laurent assumed. If you look closely you can see that the bottom leg of the letter ה is there it's just faint.

Help translating Yiddish on back of photos #translation

Steven
 

My cousin came across about 15-20 old photographs of her ancestors and most have what looks like Yiddish writing on the backs. There’s not a lot of writing, mostly just a few words, hopefully identifying who is in the photos. Is there anyone who could possibly help translate them? Thank you in advance.

Greater Houston Jewish Genealogical Society Sponsoring Research Workshops by Michael Moritz #announcements

Stefani Elkort Twyford
 

The Greater Houston Jewish Genealogical Society is inviting the public to the following virtual workshop:

 

WHAT, WHERE, & HOW – Introduction to primary databases in the U.S. for genealogical research, and some unique challenges for Jewish genealogy

Not sure where to start your family research? Hit a brick wall and need more information but not sure where to find it? Join to find out! In this 8-hour workshop series, noted genealogist, Michael Moritz, will introduce us to a variety of different databases available for mining in the U.S., where valuable information about our family history can hide in plain sight. His review will include databases at the federal, state and even local levels.

 

Next, Michael will narrow his focus to databases that house specific information relevant for Jewish family research. He will shed some light on Jewish naming conventions that can inhibit our search of long-lost family ties, and will follow with discussing strategies to overcome challenges posed by the ever-fluid geopolitical map of Europe to our family-tracing efforts.

 

For more detailed information about the resources that will be covered in this workshop and to register, please visit our website. Or you can register here https://bit.ly/3bNSnJG. 

 

 

Prior knowledge is not mandatory for participating, and everyone will gain a great deal of valuable information out of this session.

Re: German labor camps/detention centers in 1933-34 #germany #holocaust

For the Neustadt camp there is a memoria site in German), its web site is here:
http://www.gedenkstaette-neustadt.de
there is a lis of inmates here:
http://haeftlingsdatenbank.gedenkstaette-neustadt.de/start/
They have more information such as interviews with survivors and historical research, not all online, so maybe worth contacting.
For Obermoschel, there is not much information except that it was a "civil" labor camp. It is mentioned in the book:
Krause-Schmitt, U., Kaiser, A., Weinmann, M., International Tracing Service. (2001). Das nationalsozialistische Lagersystem =: (CCP). 4. Aufl. Frankfurt am Main: Zweitausendeins.
https://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/007560807/Cite
I did not consult the book because it is not available online, but it could be in some university library. As far as I could find out it lists only the name.
Presumably this was one of the many mini-camps were only a few inmates were detained to work for one company or local authority.
If you have not already done so, contact the Arolsen Archives (formerly ITS).

German labor camps/detention centers in 1933-34 #germany #holocaust

Melissa Kahn
 

Thanks to the recent guidance of Jewish Gen members, I was able to get a copy of my grandfather's restitution (reparations) file from Germany.  In it, he states that he was held in the Neustadt Weinstrasse labor camp in 1933 and in Obermoschel Palatinate prison in 1934.  I wonder how I can locate documents from these locations that would give information about his detention.  In addition, I wonder if there are diaries or narratives about the experiences of prisoners in these places or similar labor camps/detention centers.  Thank you, Melissa Kahn

Re: Looking for a town in Belarus #belarus

Hilary Henkin
 

My initial response was that the place you're looking for is the city which was known as Ekaterinoslav.  Like Mogilev, it's on the Dnieper River, but south of Mogilev, in Ukraine.  The name of the city as our ancestors knew it is commonly mangled in any of dozens of different ways.

It was named for Catherine, the tzar (katerina = Catherine).  In 1926 (after the Russian Revolution), it was renamed to Dnepropetrovsk, to mark its location on the Dnieper river, and a communist leader Grigory Petrovsky.  In 2016, it was renamed as Dnipro, as part of a 2016 Ukraine decommunization law.

Records from Dnipro are not currently easily accessible, if at all.
