ITS Files in Arolsen, Germany #general

Sherry Kisos <smwwk770@...>
 

Dear All,

I would like to make a comment regarding the ITS files in Arolsen, Germany.
They are not Nazi files per se and it is wrong to call them that. There are
captured Nazi files within the ITS files (concentation camps records, etc.),
but the origial purpose of the ITS or International Tracing Service was just
that - to try and help people find friends and relatives in the aftermath of
the Shoah.

I might add that it was the Allied Forces that began the tracing service before
the end of the war.

Sincerely yours,
Sherry Kisos

Re: KEWACZ = KWASNY or KWASNEY? #general

tom klein <jewishgen@...>
 

KWASNY is pure Polish (at least one online source indicates that it originates
form the Polish word for "sour"), whereas KEWACZ is a Polish spelling of the
Hungarian name KOVACS (pronounced koh-vahtch), which means "smith" (and is
exactly as common a surname). Since they originate >from different words and
from different languages, I don't think we can consider them as connected in
any way, except by a similar sound.

It is quite possible that a KOVACS (which might have once been KOHN) may have
changed it first to the Polish spelling KEWACZ and ultimately to the Polish
KWASNY, perhaps in order to be less conspicuous. But this is all hypothetical,
until you can find documentary evidence that supports it.

Unless there is a more likely Polish given name, I would guess that "Anhaly" is
probably a misspelling (or misreading) of "Mihaly", a common Hungarian male
given name. The best way to tell for sure is to look at the microfilm.

Re: problem with my Ellis Island files #general

tom klein <jewishgen@...>
 

It's hard to tell >from your message, but I suspect that "capacity to view" was
never the issue, but rather the way the images were "saved":

If you just bookmark the search results page, the temporary file containing the
results gets released (deleted) by the server (which normally happens soon after
you stop viewing it, as other people's requests get processed).

To be able to refer back to a graphic, you need to either save it as a file (not
as a bookmark or a shortcut) on your hard disk, or print it out on paper. Paper
is somewhat old-fashioned, but it has the advantage of not being susceptible to
future computer failure or upgrade, and can be read "without apparatus". It
also provides an immediate confirmation that it was actually saved.

Looking for Amsterdam #unitedkingdom

Dick Jaeger <richard@...>
 

On behalf of one of my oldest friends I am looking for records of ther
mother's family surname, Amsterdam originally >from Poland but lived in
Franfurt till 1940 . Her mother's name was Eva Amsterdam. Eva's father's
name was Joseph, mother Selma, Eva was born in 1917 had two older brothers
Henry and Gustave and a younger brother Arthur. Eva went to London in 1940
and then to the US during the Blitz, sponsored by a cousin named Richter,
possibly >from the Detroit or Cleveland area. Eva and her husband and
children lived in New York. Her brother Henry was in the BritishArmy during
the war and her parents and younger brother went to Italy Alberpbello or
Bari The family was split up and only Eva's father is known, unfortunately
because of a picture of a grave. Eva married and had two children Carrey and
Margo both of whom live in New York and I have known for over fifty years.
Eva died in the 1970's.
Margo and Carey are trying to develop additional information for me but that
is basically what I have at the moment.

Re: Looking for my grandparents entry record (KUROPATWA)at Ellis Island 1903-1904 from Zambrow #general

L. Altman <familysearch@...>
 

If they arrived at Castle Gardens, you won't find them on Ellis Island's
database. Look at the Castle Gardens database. I believe it is
www.castlegardens.org
Castle Gardens is a separate set of records. It was prior to Ellis Island
which was built after Castle Gardens burned. The dates of Castle Garden are
a little earlier than what you mention - early 1890's. However, if the
family said Castle Garden and not Ellis Island look at Castle Garden.
They would not have taken a ferry to Ellis Island >from Castle Garden. They
would have been processeed at Castle Garden and then into NY City and then
to final destinations. The only other option being they were 2nd class is
that they were processed at Castle Garden on the boat and then traveled to
another port in the US.

cemetery data #usa

Joyce Field
 

A friendly reminder to all who are doing genealogical research.
Please help JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial Registry (JOWBR) by
photographing and/or indexing cemeteries wherever you may travel this
Spring, Summer, and Fall. Instructions are at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/JOWBRinstructions.htm, or
contact me or Nolan Altman, JOWBR Technical Coordinator privately.
Nolan can be reached at nta@pipeline.com.

Burial records contain valuable genealogical information. In many
small towns throughout the U.S., Jewish cemeteries have been
"orphaned" as the Jewish population has left; as a result, important
information on early Jewish settlers will be irrevocably lost if we
do not capture and make this information available.

Ada Green will make an important presentation on cemetery research at
the IAJGS 2006 Conference in New York in August. She has personally
indexed more U.S. cemeteries and landsmanschaft plots and donated
her invaluable work to JOWBR than any other single individual. If
you need suggestions on how to do cemetery research, her introduction
will be important for you. In the interim, read our online
instructions at the JOWBR web site.

Nolan and I look forward to hearing >from you. A large batch of files
will be uploaded to JOWBR soon; therefore, the current cemetery
inventory, at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm, does
not yet reflect these additions. To avoid duplication, contact Nolan
about your cemetery indexing plans.

BLOCH Gailingen #germany

Ruth und Thomas Bloch <ruthomas.bloch@...>
 

I have still not been successful in finding verified data on my g3grandparents
told to be Salomon and Jeanette BLOCH, "Schutzbuerger" >from Gailingen, I'll try it
from an other angle:
My g2grandparents are definitely Jacob BLOCH (1782-1842) and his wife
Reel/Regine BLOCH-REDLICH (1786-1858), both buried in Gailingen. They
had, between 1812 and 1832, 12 children named Salomon, Isaak, Regina,
Jeanette, Samuel, Daniel, Elk Emilie, Hanna Hindel Henriette, Josef,
David plus a boy and a girl whose names are not known. Is, amongst my
co-JewishGenners, anybody - may be even descendants unknown to me of
this family, who would have reliable information on Salomon and
Jeanette BLOCH or hints how to continue my search? Any help will be appreciated.
