Can't directly help with records. There was or maybe still is an organisation of
Harbin descendants in Israel. Do a Google search, best in Hebrew. Harbin had a
community of 20,000 Jews. Last Jews left with Communist takeover of China.

You gotta visit Harbin in January-February, there is an unbelievable ice festival,
a whole city built out of ice.

Jewish cemetery is in perfect shape! Most of the tombstones are legible. Cemetery
is about a 45 minute taxi ride >from the centre. Synagogue is now a Jewish Museum,
hundreds of photos of the community, its people, its organisations, businesses etc.

We have been to many Jewish Museums around the world, none come close to Harbin's
in telling and illustrating the remarkable story of the Jewish community of Harbin.

Synagogue, now museum, is smack in the centre of Harbin. Taxis are cheap. Best to
get taxi at your hotel and keep for the day. Flagging taxis is not a happening
unless you are prepared to become a frozen statue.

Dress for minus 35. Visit the museum and cemetery during the day and the ice
festival once it gets dark. Need only 3 days to cover everything at an easy pace!

We did not have a guide, with Google translate and your cell phone, you
get around no problem everybody has a smartphone and Google translate.

Looking for Pacht ancestors from Millie Bucavina #hungary

mpacht@...
 

Greetings, all. I am trying to find the town >from which my ancestors
came. Initially, on all records, they claimed Millie, Bucavina,
Austria as birth place. But through the years, the records, the
records still show Millie, Bucavina, but the country varied from
Austria to Romania to Hungary.

I imagine that Millie has been absorbed into a larger municipality.
Some current research leads us to believe that it's in Ukraine. Any
help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Researching how my ggm and gaunt travelled to Bad Wildungen in 1916 #germany

isabelle@...
 

MODERATOR NOTE: For best results, please observe our list rules
and format guidelines. They are at our website:
https://www.jewishgen.org/GerSIG/email.htm#rules =======>

I have posted this question on a couple of other sites and I and my
researcher are totally stumped. Here is what I definitely know.

My ggm, Sarah London Baker,and ggf , Kaufman Baker, lived in London in
1916. They were naturalized British citizens dating back to 1887.
Based on correspondence which I have, I know that my ggm went to Bad
Wildungen, a well known Jewish health spa in 1915 or 1916. I know that
she died there - possibly of TB - sometime in 1916, prior to July 1916.
My gaunt, Ella Baker, was in Germany also at the time of her death and
took care of the final arrangements prior to returning home to London
sometime after July 1916.

Here's the question - how was it possibly for British citizens,
even German-speaking ones, to travel between Germany and England during WW1?

ViewMate Translation Requests re the late Friedrich LICHTENSTEIN #69832-69834 - German #germany

Dave Lichtenstein
 

Hello Everybody

I've posted vital records in German for which I need translations. They are
on ViewMate at the following addresses ...
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM70095
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM70096
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM70097

Sorry I have them slightly out of order 70096 should be the first followed
by 70095 and lastly 70097

These three images were copied for me by Centrum Judaicum >from their records
when I visited them in 2009. They are a continuation of earlier ViewMate
images 69947-69950 also images were copied for me by Centrum Judaicum from
their records when I visited them in 2009.

In addition they should be considered against the background of a curriculum
vitae which also recently came to light as a compensation request. These
were also posted as ViewMate images 69832-69834.

They relate to my Grandfather the late Reverend Friedrich LICHTENSTEIN. In
addition to concentrating on his name in the documents, I would appreciate
an interpretation of these documents. (I believe that they may relate to
the German Jewish community just following the War.) I also believe that
other well known names in the German Jewish community feature in these
documents - what roles, where and when. So you can see that I am seeking
more just than a plain translation of wherever the name LICHTENSTEIN occurs
and in relation to LICHTENSTEIN. I am looking for a broader context.

I am planning a trip to Germany in July-August 2019 and am seeking a guide
(or guides) for those places where Friedrich LICHTENSTEIN lived and worked.
I was lucky enough in 2009 to have the services of one Robert WINTER who
translated some other material which I had on Friedrich LICHTENSTEIN. Sadly
I now seem to have lost contact with Robert. If any one is in contact with
him I would appreciate renewing our acquaintance. In both case you might be
good enough to respond via my e-mail address: lichtend@...
Thank you very much.
