Viewmate Image Kaunas Tablet of Jewish Communities -- Yiddish not Hebrew #general

Susan Goldsmith
 

Dear Jewish Gen and Litvak SIG:

I apologize for my misinterpretation. Thank you to all the Hebrew
and Yiddish mavens who explained that the Kaunas Choral Synagogue
Shoah Tablet is in Yiddish, not Hebrew as I had assumed, and that it
is not a list of names, but rather a list of Jewish communities and
the dates their members were killed.

I would be grateful if someone would please translate >from Yiddish to
English the names of the communities destroyed in the Shoah and the
dates of the aktions. I will then post the results for everyone's
information.

The photo is on ViewMate at the following address:

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Thank you very much.

SELIG family from Bischofsheim - VIEW MATE #germany

Nicolas Grossfeld
 

Dear Genners,
we would like to find all possible information about our SELIG
family >from Bischofsheim (Germany).

We have found an old picture, taken in front of the SELIG house
in Bischofsheim. My grandmother wrote the names of these
persons at the back of the picture (taken in 1910-12).
However, some of them are difficult to read.

A copy of this photo can be found on viewmate:

Hello,
I'm trying to research my great great grandparents - Charlotte Hoffman
and Julius Kleeberger. I know that Charlotte was born in Ellrich,
near Nordhausen, Prussia and that she and Julius migrated to
Melbourne, Australia (via Liverpool, England) in the 1850s.
There is a family story that suggests Charlotte was Jewish but
it has never been confirmed. Does anyone have any advice on how
I could go about obtaining more information?

Thanks for your help, Vikki Williams

Thanks to Tomåť Lang, Elizabeth Long, and Gabriela Svatos for their
thorough and enlightening interpretation of the town name, registered
in a German-language Czech birth record of 1865 as "Vaagvetsch in
Ungarn." As I learned >from the three experts, the town is now in
Slovakia, called Å aÄža-VeÄ?a ("Vaag" = Vah river, "vetsch" = town VeÄ?a;
Å aÄža is the nearby larger town, formerly in Nyitra (Nitra) county in

Hats off to you, Gerhard, for informing us so quickly!

A major step, as this is an enormous collection. So far,
Baden-Wuerttemberg was the only state that had done similar things.
Stand by, though--I hear there's more to come soon >from other places.

Bessarabia Revision Lists - new 12,495 new records #bessarabia

Dear Bessarabers,

The new Bessarabia Revision records are available at JewishGen, at Romania /
Moldova database.

At the Bessarabia Databases section you can find a table with information
about all sets of records uploaded in June of 2013. You will get the list
of microfilm numbers, towns / shteitlakh, year the records were taken,
number of records, families and images uploaded, also type of records,
social status and additional comments.

I am also planning to add to Bessarabia Databases section title pages of
each set of records as well as the ending page, where you can see our
ancestors signing the Revision lists (usually 5-7 people >from the community
signed the Revisions, and also every person signed an additional revision.
This is how I found my great great great grandfather Mendel Spivak signed
the Revision List of 1848 of town of Kaushany, Bendery uezd.

Anyone who wants to help translating Revision List records, please email me.
You will be able to choose records >from the towns you are most interested
in.
