Cuba 1949 Telephone Directory #latinamerica

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

A 1949 telephone directory of Cuba, "Directorio telefonico de Cuba y
guia clasificada de abonados," is full-text searchable at
http://genealogyindexer.org, with search results linking to images of
the corresponding pages on the website of the University of Florida's
Digital Library of the Caribbean. Searches include this and all
1,000+ other directories >from around the world, by default. To
restrict a search to just this directory, change the "Any Place"
option below the search box to "Cuba."

This directory can also be searched on the Digital Library of the
Caribbean at http://ufdcweb1.uflib.ufl.edu/UF00026137/00001/search.
Search options are different (e.g., the Digital Library does not have
soundex or wildcard searching and is sensitive to diacritics) and the
conversion >from images to searchable text is different, so results
might be different.

If you wish to browse the directory, you can view images at

Yizkor Book Project, April 2014 #latinamerica

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

It is sometimes quite amazing what can be done with the days
and hours in a month and quite a few dedicated volunteers.
The results of their labor within the Yizkor Book Project
is listed below, and continues as we "speak".

Although I frequently note our volunteers (well, at least try to),
I should really point out that a great deal of translations are
carried out by our very professional paid translators. Whilst
I prefer not to list them here for fear of forgetting someone,
you'll see their names appear frequently in the translations
appearing in the Yizkor Book site and I for one, am very
grateful for the excellent work they do within our project.

As you may be aware, their payment comes >from the kind donations
of people wishing to make sure that the contents of the Yizkor
books are made readily available to those of us who don't read
Yiddish and/or Hebrew, and will be available for the present
and generations to come. If this way of immortalizing our lost
communities is important to you, we welcome your donations to
one of our many projects which can be found at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/PL.asp?c=23

If the Yizkor book for the community of your interest
has yet to be set up as a project, please contact me
and we'll see how we can get such a project moving.

New project - Immigration to South America #latinamerica

Yoni Kupchik
 

Dear friends,

I=92m happy to announce a new project - Indexing census records and =
passengers lists of Jews that left Europe with the aid of the Jewish =
Colonization Association (JCA). Around the beginning of the 20th century =
the JCA helped thousands of Jews flee >from Europe (mostly Russia and =
Poland, but also more western parts of Europe like Germany) and sent =
them to agricultural colonies mainly in Argentina, but also in Uruguay, =
Brazil, Canada, USA, and Palestine. The JCA kept the passengers lists =
and census records >from those colonies and those records are now stored =
in the Central Archives of the History of the Jewish People in =
Jerusalem, Israel.=20

During the project we will acquire copies of those records and generate =
a database of all the names. The amount of information in the Archives =
is enormous, surely consisting of more than 100,000 names. We need your =
help to make this happen. Help can be offered in three ways:

1) We need volunteers that can go to the archives in Jerusalem with a =
digital camera and take pictures of the documents. This is the main =
bottleneck of the project so if you think you might be able to help =
please contact me.

2) We need donations to cover the expenses of taking the pictures. In =
order to donate money please go to the JewishGen-erosity page =
(http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/), choose the Latin America =
SIG on the right, and then donate money to the first project on the =
list. Any donation is greatly appreciated!

3) We need transliterators. The records are in classical Latin alphabet =
and mostly easy to read. No knowledge in Spanish is required.

For more detailed information about the project please go here: =
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/projectdesc/LA_Immigrants.html.=

Seeking information about Imre Laszlo "Laci" HAVAS #hungary

Jake Jacobs
 

Seeking information about my grandmother's brother, who disappeared in the Hungarian Labor Service in 1943. My grandmother was never convinced that he died; a number of conscripts in the Labor Service survived. As small as the world has become, with the internet and these list-servs, I am taking a last shot at seeing if there is any word of his survival.

Imre Laszo "Laci" HAVAS was born in 1908 in Gurahont (Honcto), then Hungary, now Romania. His parents were Jakab Havas (b. Hochwald) and Iren Bleuer. He spent most of his life in Bekes, Hungary. He married Iren GRUNWALD about 1943.

Laci was conscripted in the Hungarian Labor Service in 1943. He served in the VI Battalion out of Püspökladány, Hajdu-Bihar, Hungary. The regiment disappeared and there was no further word of Laci. Note there was another Imre Laszlo Havas,

If you have any knowledge regarding what became of Laci, my mom sure would love to know. Thank you so much.

Hungary SIG #Hungary Seeking information about Imre Laszlo "Laci" HAVAS #hungary

Jake Jacobs
 

Seeking information about my grandmother's brother, who disappeared in the Hungarian Labor Service in 1943. My grandmother was never convinced that he died; a number of conscripts in the Labor Service survived. As small as the world has become, with the internet and these list-servs, I am taking a last shot at seeing if there is any word of his survival.

Imre Laszo "Laci" HAVAS was born in 1908 in Gurahont (Honcto), then Hungary, now Romania. His parents were Jakab Havas (b. Hochwald) and Iren Bleuer. He spent most of his life in Bekes, Hungary. He married Iren GRUNWALD about 1943.

Laci was conscripted in the Hungarian Labor Service in 1943. He served in the VI Battalion out of Püspökladány, Hajdu-Bihar, Hungary. The regiment disappeared and there was no further word of Laci. Note there was another Imre Laszlo Havas,

If you have any knowledge regarding what became of Laci, my mom sure would love to know. Thank you so much.

Shalom,

It is sometimes quite amazing what can be done with the days
and hours in a month and quite a few dedicated volunteers.
The results of their labor within the Yizkor Book Project
is listed below, and continues as we "speak".

Although I frequently note our volunteers (well, at least try to),
I should really point out that a great deal of translations are
carried out by our very professional paid translators. Whilst
I prefer not to list them here for fear of forgetting someone,
you'll see their names appear frequently in the translations
appearing in the Yizkor Book site and I for one, am very
grateful for the excellent work they do within our project.

As you may be aware, their payment comes >from the kind donations
of people wishing to make sure that the contents of the Yizkor
books are made readily available to those of us who don't read
Yiddish and/or Hebrew, and will be available for the present
and generations to come. If this way of immortalizing our lost
communities is important to you, we welcome your donations to
one of our many projects which can be found at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/PL.asp?c=23

If the Yizkor book for the community of your interest
has yet to be set up as a project, please contact me
and we'll see how we can get such a project moving.

Now to facts and figures for April.

During this last month we have added in 2 new projects:

seeking graves in Berlin --MONTAG- nee REITZER #germany

Ava Forking
 

I am trying to locate the grave in Berlin of my great-grandmother Elenore
(Lenore) MONTAG, nee REITZER. She was born in Zenta, emigrated with 2
daughters >from Hungary to Berlin, after her husband Vilmos died. She lived with
one daughter Ilona at Lepsiusstr 20 (Steglitz). Ilona was taken and died in
Auschwitz.
There was another daughter Hajnal, who married a non-Jew. She died before
1927. She was buried in a cemetery that was close to the above address. My
mother, who visited in 1927 and 1928, said that her grandmother visited
Hajnal's grave almost daily.

Can someone help me locate the Jewish Cemetery near the above address? Are
there ways to search burials there on line?
I have already checked JOWBR and not found my ancestor there.
Thanks for suggestions and help.
