I found an entry in my older edition of "Where We Once Walked" for
"Zagoreczko" in Poland. It had a pre-war Jewish population of (only)25. The book says
the Black Book says it is in the region of Lwow, but its name was not found in
the listings of the Board of Georgraphic Names.

I don't have a copy of the "Black Book of Polish Jewry", edited by Jacob

referred, I have only the "Black Book of Russian Jewry" by Ilya Ehrenburg and

Re: Comparing photographs to determine identity #galicia

Hello Cousins,

I would like to thank all of the kind people who responded to my posting. All of the
responses were very helpful.

In answer to my question "Is anyone aware of any resources...for comparing photographs to
determine the identity of a person regardless of the age at which the photographs were
taken?", I paraphrase their suggestions as follows:

-Contact forensic experts who use computers to digitally age people to show what they
would look like as they age, (especially in kidnapping or missing persons cases).

-These "forensic experts" can usually be found through a local University or College,
local police department, RCMP, FBI, or other group involved in forensics.

-The software used is known as "age progression software".

- The science is known as "forensic photography".

-Photocopy one photograph and fold it in half on the centre of the person's face. Then
cover that same half on the other photograph with the
folded photocopy and see if the facial features "line up".

Mariampole cemetery #lithuania

Marcia Goldberg <mgoldber@...>
 

I was in Mariampole this summer and visited the same site. There is a
second site as you enter town which has a circle of 6-8 rescued stones
around a small monument. I did not make note of the names. My guide
showed me only those two cemeteries plus the site where Jews were
murdered in September 1941. There is one memorial stone for the
victims.

I would also like to know if anyone was able to find any other
mazavehs.

I did take with me a copy of a handwritten map by a survivor living
in Israel who made the map based on how the town looked in 1941. The two
cemeteries were noted on it. The map was in a book Mariampole,
Lithuania, 2nd edition published by Avraham Tory in 1986. Three-fourth
in Hebrew and the rest in English. There is a list of names of deceased
in Hebrew. By the way, a woman at the Marijampole Archives made a copy
of the map which we translated >from Hebrew to English to Lithuanian for
the woman. She then indicated which buildings were still standing. The
Archives and the remains of a synagogue were located on what had been a
main Jewish thoroughfare.

location of Zal Kedrova/Sala Kedrowa #yiddish

Paula Eisenstein Baker
 

Dear listers,

I am trying to locate a hall called "Zal Kedrova/Sala Kedrowa."

According to information on a poster, Leo TSEYTLIN produced a concert there Sat,
July 22, 1922; his wife, Esther SITITSKAIA, sang, and he may have performed
(on viola). At that time they were living in Vilna, so I have always assumed that
the concert took place there, but a research librarian in Vilnius who
investigated it thoroughly (and whom I trust) tells me that there has never
been a hall by that name in Vilna. So . . .

Possible clues for where the concert took place:

(1) The poster was printed in Vilna, so I assume the concert took place
not far >from there, BUT there seems to be no mention of it in the Vilna
newspapers, so maybe it didn't. The posters are small enough
(approximately 19 x 24 in.) that they could have been carried easily.

(2) The poster is in two languages, Yiddish and Polish (NOT Russian).

(3) No address is given for the hall; either the city was small enough that no
address was necessary, OR the hall was very well known. A dance followed the
concert.

(4) Tseytlin and his wife were both originally >from Pinsk; possibly it took
place there.

Private replies, please, to <eisenbak@stthom.edu> unless you think they are of
interest to the group. Please excuse multiple postings.

Revesz family #hungary

annsel <annsel@...>
 

Dear Genners:

I am looking for any members of the Joseph Revesz family who lived in NY,
specifically Manhattan Bronx & Arverne Queens. The family had 4 daughters. I
believe there may be a link to my Great Grandmother Esther Revesz Schwach.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I would also like to hear >from the
lady who wanted to know of my Berkovic, Grosshandler connections >from M.
Jestreb. M. Jestreb was a very small town and I really know very little
about it. It was or maybe still is in Zemplen Megye, nearest big town Kiraly
Helmcz Slovakia.If anyone can add any information about this town I would
like to hear >from them. I want to thank all those who took the time to
translate Rosenbaum documents for me. It has been a tremendous help. This
group is great!
