How to say thankyou #unitedkingdom

yarrawa@...
 

It's wonderful that this List has helped Ann Linder to find
more family. It did the same for me. May I suggest a good way
to say thank you, is to forward a small donation to Jewishgen?
Only 2% of those who use Jewishgen actually support it financially
& if more don't do so, the whole organization will fold. This is a
fact. It doesn't have to be much, I know these are tough times, but
if everyone who uses it, sent $1 or £1, we would have a secure Jewishgen.

We just assume it's there, we get these wonderful Newsletters, run by
volunteers, we tend to take it all for granted. But this isn't right. The
connection to Ancestry does _not_ mean that Jewishgen has enough money.
And the problem is most people assume the opposite. It has better servers,
but are still desperately short of cash-and I mean desperate.

May Ann truly enjoy the new family Jewishgen found for her , through this
List,

Holocaust Calendar #general

Debbie Long <d_long@...>
 

At an IAJGS session, a Holocaust calendar by Howard Shepansky (sp?) was
mentioned. I have tried Googling this item, to no avail.

This calendar allows you to establish a Yizkor date for a town that perished
in the Shoah.

Any suggestions for obtaining this product?

1910 map of Bukowina #romania

Renee Steinig
 

I came across this wonderful 1:350,000 ethnographic map of Bukowina

http://www.bukovinasociety.org/map1910.html

The colored circle denoting each town indicates its population
("Einwohnern"), ethnic makeup, and whether it was a "Stadt" (city),
"Markt" (market) or "Dorf" (village). The demographic information is
based on the Austrian census ("Volkszaehlung") of 1910. The ethnic
groups listed are Romanians, Ruthenians, Hutsuls, Jews, Germans,
Poles, Hungarians, and Lipovans.

Dvinsk Jewish birth records, 1880 and 1883 #latvia

Stephen Weinstein
 

I am looking for birth records for Jews born in Dwinsk/Dvinsk (now Daugavpils)
in 1880 and 1883. I have checked online at Jewishgen, at Christine Usdin's
websites, and at Raduraksti, and did not find those years for that city. I
asked Latvia's archive (lvva.gov.lv) and they said that their copies have not
survived. Does anyone know where in the world there is a surviving copy,
whether on paper, microfilm, computer, or other storage media, of these records?

Re: Martyrs of Ruzhany/Rozhnoi - Correction of Previous email #general

Gilbert Hendlisz <gilbert.hendlisz@...>
 

Hello,

I would be very interested to know more about the descendants of Rabbi
BACHRACH who was martyred in Ruzhany. I suppose that some of them kept
the name Bacharach as others choosed other names. Recent DNA tests made
recently suggest that I have a common male ancestor with some Bacharachs
living today, whose ancestors were living during the 19th century in
Belarus and in the Slonim area, as the martyred rabbi did.
Any information would be welcome.
Thanks in advance.

Martyrs of Ruzhany/Rozhnoi - Correction of Previous email #rabbinic

Irene & Paul Berman <ikpjb@...>
 

I have been told that my HaLevy EPSTEIN family is descended >from a rabbi who
was martyred in Ruzhany. In addition, the author of the Ruzhany Yizkor Book,
M. Sokolovsky, states that Rabbi Shabtai WALLACH married the daughter of a
Ruzhany citizen, Yom Tov Lipman Epstein, of the family of the Martyrs.
I have also been told by a genealogist that there is no familial connection
between the HaLevy Family and the Zackheim Family of the Martyrs. Does
anyone know if there is a familial relationship between the second Martyr,
Rabbi Bachrach, and the HaLevy Epsteins?

A strange but possibly useful site #hungary

tom.vene@...
 

Friends,
I just stumbled into a quite strange site. It is in Slovak and I cannot make
out exactly what is its purpose. The site's title is "Rodokmen" which means
"Family tree." Page <http://www.geni.sk/mapa-stranok/> seems to me a golden
trove. If you click on any link seemingly you will discover what each of the
Slovak regional or district archives contain. Could somebody more fluent in
Slovak tell us how to use this site?
