R Meir was a Levi.

The Tiktin rabbinical family of SW Poland may have been Cohanim (anyone know for sure?).

The Galanta affair very briefly: When the Rav of Galanta, R' Shimon Friedman passed away in 1891, his son-in-law R' Moshe Feldman was serving as Dayan. He was appointed to be Rav by supporters a few years later, but it was opposited by many community members, who have established another Jewish Community in 1895. (Their Rav was the famous R' Yosef Tzvi Duschinsky.)
R' Moshe Feldman left Galanta, settled in Budapest, where he was served as Rosh Beth Din of the Neolog Community, until his death in 1927(?).

The images still exist. For some reason they are no longer attached to the index records, but it's not hard to find them.
Since my last attempt at this message was rejected by the moderators, PM me for more info.

Escape from Czernowitz 1941 #holocaust #romania

Zev Cohen
 

In the summer of 1941, as the Germans invaded Russia, my Aunt Chana escaped from Czernowitz with a unit of the Komsomol in the direction of Vinitsa, never to be heard from again. I would appreciate contact with anyone or the relatives of anyone who participated in that retreat.

A third option is to check FindAGrave a free
Online search database.  The fourth option is to search in Jewishgen’s JOWBR database 
which is free but requires registration.

Both have provided me with lots of info.

You have the information contained in the record. The Family Search page that this is from states that there is no image available. To get the death certificate that this record refers to you would have to contact the New York City Health Department. Here is the link  https://www1.nyc.gov/site/doh/services/death-certificates.page

The Preservation of Jewish Cemeteries in Eastern Europe April 18 #events

Lee Jaffe
 

A program I thought some members might want to know about...

THE PRESERVATION OF JEWISH CEMETERIES IN EASTERN EUROPE
For Jews, cemeteries are inviolable sacred sites, but Nazi and Communist regimes carried out policies that ruined Jewish cemeteries and often stripped them entirely of their gravestones and even despoiled graves. Since 1990 enormous strides have been taken in the identification and documentation of thousands Jewish cemeteries in Central and Eastern Europe. Some of these have often stunningly beautiful remaining matzevot (gravestones), but many have been stripped of their stones and have even been paved or built over. Beginning in 1991, as Research Director the U.S. Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad, Dr. Samuel Gruberwas a leader in the identification and documentation of thousands of these sites.

Daughter of Holocaust survivors to speak April 25, 2021, for JGS of Illinois virtual meeting #announcements #jgs-iajgs

Martin Fischer
 

Genealogist Deborah Long to speak on Holocaust research in April 25, 2021, free webinar: 

Deborah H. Long, founder of the Triangle Jewish Genealogical Society in Durham/Chapel Hill, N.C., will speak on “Three Guides, Four Countries: A Daughter of Holocaust Survivors Travels to Their Ancestral Villages” during the Sunday, April 25, 2021, Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois virtual meeting. Her live streaming presentation, which takes about 90 minutes, will begin at 2 p.m. Central Time and will be followed by time for questions and answers. 

For more information and to register/RSVP, go to https://jgsi.org/event-3988685

This webinar will be recorded so that JGSI’s paid members who are unable to view it live will be able to view the recording later. (Her talk will be preceded at 1 p.m. by a separate members-only genealogy question-and-answer discussion time.)  

The daughter of two Holocaust survivors, Deborah Long recounts in this presentation her shocking 2009 unearthing of family artifacts that compelled her to visit her ancestral villages in Poland, Hungary and northern Germany to understand her parents’ Holocaust history. The narrative of this program serves to inspire researchers who are up against all odds—few names, no family artifacts or photographs, and no living relatives.  

She will review her methodology, her trip through shtetls and concentration camps, and her surprising and joyful discovery upon returning home. 

 

Deborah has been researching her family’s Holocaust history and looking for surviving family members for more than 50 years. She is a professional educator, and typically her audiences are licensed professionals. She has written more than 20 books, including a memoir about growing up as a child of survivors titled “First Hitler, Then Your Father, and Now You.” She is the founder of the Triangle JGS in Durham/Chapel Hill, North Carolina.  

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping members collect, preserve, and perpetuate the records and history of their ancestors. JGSI is a resource for the worldwide Jewish community to research their Chicago-area roots. The JGSI motto is “Members Helping Members Since 1981.” The group has more than 300 members and is affiliated with the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies

JGSI members have access to useful and informative online family history research resources, including a members’ forum, more than 65 video recordings of past speakers’ presentations, a monthly JGSI E-News, quarterly Morasha JGSI newsletter, and much more. Members---as well as non-members---can look for their ancestors on the free searchable JGSI Jewish Chicago Database
