Translation from Polish #translation

I found these pages that describe my ancestral town of Kopaigorod in the book called " Geographical dictionary of the Kingdom of Poland and other Slavic countries".  I have attached two screen shots of the entry I need translated: Kopajgrod.  

Thank you

FW: Visits to concentration camps #general

Molly Staub
 

 

 

A great many people knew of the Holocaust long before "Schindler's List" came out in 1993. Perhaps not everyone was as involved as my liberal family and neighbors; however, First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt  advocated for those Jews fleeing the intolerable actions, and donated money, as early as 1939. It was not a secret. And Great Britain's Quakers helped those Jews starting in 1939; they later received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1947 for that. Not being aware reminds me of a time last year when a college-educated, successful woman said. "Gee. I never knew African Americans were treated badly."

Re: Searching for Yakov Kotlan from Ozorków, Poland - translation required #translation #yizkorbooks #poland

Laura,
A soundex search finds several people with surname spelled Kotland
from Ozorków that are listed in:

Poland, Łódź Ghetto Transportation Lists, 1939-1944 (USHMM)

Łódź, Poland, Vital Records of Jews in the Łódź Ghetto, 1939-1944 (USHMM)

Łódż, Poland, Ghetto Hospital Death Records, 1941-1944

I did not look at every record, but at least one gives their father's name as Alter.

Thank you for your work in remembering each person.

Re: Trying to find the connection and solve a mystery #belarus

Sherri Bobish
 

Dror,

I don't have a specific answer, but I will say that the odds of two people, even in a small shtetl, having the same name, and living there at the same time, is absolutely possible.

For instance, they could be sons of two brothers, and each brother named their child after the same ancestor.  Hence, two cousins share the same name.

Just a thought,

Sherri Bobish

Hello, I am researching my Schwarzstein family in Antwerp.
I know that an entire family was assassinated in Auschwitz Marcus Laub,
his wife Pauline Schwarzstein and two sons.
Jonas Schwarzstein and his wife Feiga Semenovsky were also deported and
killed.
I know that their daughter Regina, born in Antwerp 01/09/1912 survived,
Soon after the war she widowed from Felix Chilcrot. I cannot trace the
other son and brother to Regina: Victor Schwarzstein born 28/08/1908 in

Offering Montefiore Cemetery photos (Queens, NY) #usa #photographs

A. E. Jordan
 


I am thinking I might tackle Montefiore Cemetery in Springfield Gardens, Queens, NY as my next cemetery visit for 2021. 
 
Process I follow is fairly simple in offering to take photos for people.
 
You ID the grave from the cemetery's online database and send me the details. I take a photo and email it to you and in turn I appreciate a few dollars to help defer the expense of doing this for everyone, ie gasoline money.
 
I am happy to help out where I can, but please don't send me a generic name and ask me to find the person at the cemetery and please don't send me around the cemetery to find the 20 people named Jack Cohen because one of them might possibly be your long lost cousin. The cemetery is massive and a few people have asked me to do that and it is a very slow process that takes a lot of time and gasoline, etc.

Also if you are asking for an infant or child's grave please tell me. They are mostly in separate areas of the plots and a lot of those graves do not have markers.
 
Montefiore has am online database. It is better if you search the name on the Montefiore database versus the commercial Find a Grave because the position information and data is better at the cemetery's page.
 
Feel free to ask me questions via email and ask about other NYC area cemeteries because I will visit most of them as the summer progresses. There's a few I do not go to because of distance or safety issues.
 
Please respect the discussion group and send your specific requests to me privately by replying to this email or my email address aejordan at aol dot com.

Re: Finding descendants of relatives who died in the Holocaust #holocaust

sharonrf18@...
 

I found descendants of a Holocaust survivor from my husband’s family after discovering Pages of Testimony. The survivor filled out the pages in 1957 and gave a Tel Aviv address. I knew my Hebrew probably wasn’t good enough for a search so I asked for assistance on the Facebook group Jewish Genealogy Portal. I also had the US Holocaust Museum do a search and used the Arolsen Archives and the JDC website to find anything after 1957. I had no idea if there were descendants or if I would just find a headstone. The Arolsen site provided me with his wartime internments. The Holocaust Museum also added to his wartime experience but didn’t get me past 1957. Some angels on the Facebook group were able to find the descendants! It turned out the survivor had remarried and moved to the US in 1958. We’re now in contact with the survivors. With a last address in 2014 you may not have to go through that many steps. The genealogy community is very generous and I suggest you turn to them.  Good luck to you!

Alternatively - do you have a photograph of how the surname could be spelled in Hebrew letters?  I have tried quite a number of variants, and found nothing.

Genners,

A friend is anxious to locate living survivors of the Mir Yeshiva during its sojourn in Shanghai. Here's his message:

I am looking for a group for "Survivors of the Mir Yeshiva in Shanghai" as I am seeking vital information about my father and need to locate someone who might have known him during that period. Any information on how to navigate through social media in searching for this would be GREATLY appreciated.<
Can anyone identify such a group?

Thanks.

I have been sent the Yizkor book for Ozorków, and I cannot read it or find a reliable Google translation.

Would any members here be willing to help to see if they can find a reference to any Kotlans in the following book? Thank you all so much.

20th Century Immigration and Naturalization Records

Marisa Louie Lee, independent archival researcher


The National Archives maintains a wealth of records relating to immigration and naturalization in the 20th century.  This includes more than one million Alien Case Files ("A-Files") at its facilities in San Francisco, California, and Kansas City, Missouri.  Created beginning in 1944, these files relate to noncitizen alien residents of the United States and are a potential wealth of genealogical information.  We'll discuss what's in the A-Files, who is documented in them, how to find them at the National Archives, and how to access records that remain with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). 

Marisa Louie Lee is an archival researcher specializing in federal records.  While an archivist at the National Archives at San Francisco, she co-authored the article "The A-Files: Finding Your Immigrant Ancestors", published in the Spring 2013 issue of Prologue magazine.  A fifth-generation Chinese American, Marisa first worked with federal records as a college student researching her own family's history in the United States.  She has presented talks at the California Genealogical Society, the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG), the Japanese American National Museum (in conjunction with the Nikkei Genealogical Society), and the Chinese Historical Society of America.
