Looking for relatives of Moshe Sztelman from Grojec, Poland. In the attached card he sends greetings to his aunt Zysla Miller. No place or date was provided. The picture studio was at 28 Smocza and the name of the Studio starts with MAT....(can not make up the name). I checked for the address in Warsaw but it corresponds to some market before the war.  Thanks for your help.

Re: Headstone translations - Narefka Gravestones #translation

Joy Kestenbaum
 

The website of the Foundation for Documentation of Jewish Cemeteries in Poland has entries for 132 Narewka gravestones, with photos and identifying information, including name of deceased, surnames, fathers names, and date of death, when available, although there are no translated inscriptions. https://cemetery.jewish.org.pl/list/c_77/ile_1
Some photos with inscriptions and other identifying information can be found on the JewishGen KehilaLinks Jewish Cemetery page, 
where there are links to other pages and websites with photos and information on the gravestones, including one contributed by David Feldman over ten years ago.

Agency in Poland in 1917 #poland

Esther Brill
 

Does anyone have any information on an agency which sold tickets in 1917 by the name of Kuoni, Knowa, or Kuova.  On her manifest it lists that she bought her ticket from them, but it is hard to discern the actual name.

Thank you

You can't remove the photo, but you can add a note in the bio identifying the person in the photo. If you have other photos to add, you can rearrange the order of the photos so that the offending photo no long shows on the front page.

Railroad ticket agency in Brody, Galician-Austria: 1906 #galicia #russia

Harry Boonin
 

I am searching for P. Kappeler & Sohn (Kappeller) rr ticket agency in Brody in 1906. I have been advised no archive (or library) in Galicia has knowledge or possession of records of rr ticket agencies in Brody at that time

Does any family escaping the “October 1905” pogroms from Southern Russia possess a family memoir or any document which describes how they crossed the Russian-Galician border and wrote a letter or later, a memoir, of a ticket agency in Brody.

Hello Ralph,

To have the photo removed, click on HELP at the bottom of the memorial where it says MEMORIALS CEMETERIES CONTRIBUTE etc. Then click on HOW CAN I REQUEST TO HAVE SOMETHING REMOVE FROM THE SITE? Follow the directions for:  Memorial or part of a memorial.

State that you are her son and that you want your aunt's photo removed from your mother's memorial, but the woman who uploaded it has not responded to your request.

Re: Looking for data on 12thEast transport April 1942 Berlin to Warsaw Ghetto: looking for family #holocaust

Evelyn and Christopher Wilcock
 

I use the images of the deportation lists on the website https://www.statistik-des-holocaust.de

The 12th transport from Berlin may be here.
https://www.statistik-des-holocaust.de/list_ger_ber_ot12.html

But it looks fragmentary. Arriving safely in a ghetto did not indicate safety or survival. Ghettos were liquidated and deportations made from ghettos to extermination centres or to other camps.

Hello,
Probably what I say will not help.

There is a contact at the bottom of findagrave page, write or call them.

The terms of service are the photos belong to the
person whom uploaded the photo. (Billion Graves is different).

I had no problem taking down photos I uploaded.

If the person does not take down the photo, is her choice.
The headstone in a publicly accessible cemetery is not
protected by privacy in many countries.

Sorry for the bad news.

Also, neither of my aunt's children is familiar with the picture which was posted. Her full name as Gertraud Flora Gunzenhauser is written on the picture. Because there is no umlaut on the A in Gunzenhauser, it must be from after she left Germany in 1939, but certainly before she married in 1948, probably closer to the earlier date. The picture appears to have an official seal embossed on it. Interestingly, Tina D. has posted pictures of many people who lived in or near Duisburg, Germany, both Jewish and non-Jewish. My grandmother, that is my mother and my aunt's mother, was born in Ruhrort which is now part of Duisburg.

Looking for Rachel DeVries born art 1874 in Tennessee #usa #general

Barbara & David Israel
 

Does anyone have any idea how to locate birth record for Tennessee about 1874 (Shelby, TN). Garret DeVries
and his wife Teresa Rosa Fisher both died in 1879 due to Yellow Fever and left 4 children ages 6 to 1. The only
one not accounted for was Rachel DeVries. Did not know about Rachel until I read Garret’s will. But she seems
to have vanished. Thank you to anyone who can help.

Re: Ukrainian archives completes digitizing of Kiev Jewish vital records #ukraine #records

mvayser@...
 

Shelley,
Ted has already partially answered this question, but here is the full information on what's Kiev's TsDIAK archive is planning on posting on their web site.  They've renumbered these vital records, which is why there is a difference in the ID of the files uploaded by Alex Krakovsky and others.
So far they've posted only pages from the Kiev (complete) and Kiev uezd (partial), but hopefully, the rest is on its way.  In the meantime, TsDIAK archive can be contacted to get a scan of the required page, if it's not yet available on their web site.

Re: demande de traduction du Russe en Français #russia #translation

mvayser@...
 

The scan is of the description of the archival file (identification 1-1-2909), not of the file itself.  It states that there are 30 pages in this file.  You would have to order this file from the archive - Central State Archive of the USSR.  As the USSR no longer exists, the archive has been renamed or maybe even merged into another archive.  The first page is dated 1988, the second page has a note that this document was given to "Special storage" in March 1965.
There is no information at all what the document is titled, the content, or dates, associated with this document.

Deborah Lipstadt Nominated as State Department President Biden's Antisemitism Envoy #announcements #usa

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Holocaust historian, Deborah Lipstadt, is being nominated the ambassador-level position at the US State Department, as antisemitism envoy.  As it is an ambassador level position, the nomination must be approved by the US Senate. The antisemitism monitor’s role is tracking and reporting on the phenomenon overseas, and lobbying governments to address anti-Jewish bigotry within their borders.

 

Ms. Lipstadt is a professor at Emory University in Atlanta and was the protagonist of the 2016 film “Denial,” about her successful defeat of a libel suit filed by a Holocaust denier David Irvin, after he sued her in a British court for defamation for calling him a Holocaust denier. She is the author of several books.

Moldova/Bessarabia talk at AJU #announcements

Cassio Tolpolar
 

Dear friends, 

I have recently got a grant to make the e-book "Moldova Impressions (and everything after)",  a written collection of memories and experiences inspired by my journeys to Moldova to investigate my Jewish roots and the consequences of these trips back in time. Mixing past and present, this is for anyone interested in genealogy, identity, traveling, Eastern Europe, Latin America, Judaism and History.

I hope my stories will help and inspire others to search for their roots. You can register at the event on August 8th where all the Digital Word 2021 grantees (including me) will talk about their projects at https://learning.aju.edu/event/digital-word-2021-meet-the-grantees/

After this live event the book will be available for free.

Word is a program of American Jewish University's Institute for Jewish Creativity. Word: Bruce Geller Memorial Prize is made possible by the late Jeanette Geller in memory of her husband Bruce.

Thank you!

Cassio Tolpolar


Looking for data on 12thEast transport April 1942 Berlin to Warsaw Ghetto: looking for family #holocaust

Paul Beek
 

On this Yad Vashem site: https://deportation.yadvashem.org/index.html?language=de&itemId=5092661&ind=1ot13.html, there is a mention of this 12th transport from Berlin to Warsaw Ghetto, it was supposed to first have gone to camp Trawnicki near Lublin. One of my family was on that train and in this article it states that no Berlin Jew survived, they were met by the Chairman of the Jewish Council, he says in his diary that he took them to the Jewish Library.
So know what happened to them?They did not survive so who killed them, where and who gave the order?

If anyone has knowledge about this, please let me know.
The relevant organisations already got an email form me but am hoping for more clues, thank you all

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the Jewishgen Facebook page #yizkorbooks #poland

Bruce Drake
 

“I boarded the train. On the steps I looked around once again at my friends, and I saw my mother as she stood in the crowd of travelers. She held her hands out to me. They shook in the air, like white birds who try to protect their fledglings from danger.”
As the shadows of impending horror and death stretched further and further over the Jewish towns of Europe, people began to leave for America, Eretz Israel and other faraway destinations. It doesn’t take much imagination to picture how heart-rending it was for the families and those who chose to go. But what struck me about “My Last Day at Home” from the Yizkor book of Wolomin in Poland were the details Shmuel Zucker remembered of his parting. On the day he made Aliyah to Eretz Israel: how he could hardly see through eyes blinded by tears as he made his way to the train, or the image of his mother, “bent over as if her heart would break into little pieces,” and speaking to him through her sobs.
