Pages of Testimony #hungary

korman3@...
 

According to a message that was forwarded to me, Yad VaShem is asking
all Jewish organizations to help in recording pages of testimony for
those lost in the Shoah. Yad VaShem, realizing that time is becoming
short, has asked that this be done expediently.

Although the forms that are submitted must have an origianl signature
and be dated, the form itself does not have to be an original received
from Yad VaShem. It can be a photocopied form. Supposedly, forms can
soon be downloaded from
http://www.yadvashem.org.il

The forms, in the US, can be mailed to American Society for Yad VaShem
500 5th Avenue Suite 1600, NY, NY 10110-1699.

Now is the time to stop complaining that our Hungarian relatives were
overlooked. Let's consult our ever expanding family trees and fill out
those forms.

A healthy and happy Pesach to you all

First names #hungary

georges.graner@ppm.u-psud.fr <Georges.Graner@...>
 

Dear H-siggers,
Don Seligman explained yesterday that one of the clues to assign a family
is the fact that first names are often "recycled". I would like to insist
on this fact by giving the example of the jewish community of Metz, in
France, for which excellent records are available for the period 1718-1792.
There was a well respected rule there: the first male child born after
the death of the grandfather would get his grandfather's first name.
This rule is so strict that it can even be used to find the date of a death.
For instance, if the grandfather's name was Salomon and the sons of the
family are called Isaac (1744) - Moise (1746) - Salomon (1748), you can be
99% sure that the gf died between 1746 and 1748. You may even have two
different Salomon in two branches of the family.

How well this rule can be valid for Hungary is of course a question.

Yizkor Books #YizkorBooks Stolen Yizkor books - An Appeal #yizkorbooks

Jean-Pierre Stroweis <stroweis@...>
 

Dear all,

Following Shalom Bronstein annoucement.

It has came to our knowledge that some 102 Yizkor books have disappeared
from the shelves of the Yad Vashem library over a period of a few months in
1998. There was a similar "removal without permission", although fewer in
number, >from Beit Ariella, the Tel Aviv municipal library, and >from other
libraries as well.

As is known, Yizkor books are memorial books that were written after the
Shoah by survivors of the vanished Jewish communities (towns and villages)
in remembrance of what was once their own Jewish communities. For each city,
Yizkor books offer a vivid portrait of the Jewish life before World War II,
presenting the history of the Jewish settlement, the local celebrities, the
achievements and the Jewish institutions. They chronicle the destruction of
the communities during the Holocaust, they tell the stories of those heroes
and martyrs who fought against the Nazis and their associates, and they
often serve as a tombstone to the memory of those who perished. The Yizkor
books are often the sole remaining testimony of the presence of Jews in
cities and villages of Europe.

Yad Vashem holds the largest collection of Yizkor books worldwide. It
constitutes one of the most precious repositories of information for
survivors, historians, students, searchers, genealogists, for Jews and for
all mankind. This loss creates a major gap in the preservation of the
Jewish heritage and we feel compelled to return the missing books to their
shelves. The foolish appetite of a compulsive collector (?) should not be in
the detriment of the whole Israeli and Jewish community. These books should
be accessible to the largest audience.

Therefore, the Israel Genealogical Society is now launching this appeal to
you, worldwide, in order to help us to rebuild this unique collection and
reconstitute the complete heritage. You will find the list of the 'missing'
books below, or soon in our Web site at http://www.navitek.com/igs

If you can donate a copy, if you know of available copies, if you have
several issues of a Yizkor book, or if you know where to purchase these
books, please contact us at the Israel Genealogical Society, or contact
directly the Yad VaShem library at:

collection which is now placed under controlled access.

the Huguenot faith. The Huguenots, for the most part, were not as
strict about adherance to religious rules and precepts as were the
Catholics. They also did not have an Inquisition as did the Hispanic
Catholics. So, when someone had a Jewish or biblical name and they
were also Huguenot, people made suppositions about their being
Jewish altogether.

In regard to Menna's further inquiry on Alexander Hamilton and his
mother's Huguenot roots, I had already sent her the following reply
privately:

Many French Huguenots were thought to be "conversos" hiding behind

Salem Fields, New York #general

Does anyone know anything about Salem Fields Cemetery in New York?

I read the description >from the International Cemetery Project and it sounds
like the final resting place of the rich and famous. What about immigratnts
from the Lower East Side? Might they be buried there too?
I can not find my gggf but I found a death certificate in New York that might
be him -- a lot of the information seems wrong -- but the date seems
possible. The death certificate says that this man was buried at Salem
Field. My gggf was an immigrant >from Odessa who arrived only a few years
before this person died and I doubt my gggf had a lot of money when he died.
So I am wondering if this is the same person or if the name Nathan Sanders is
a common name. I searched more than a decade of death certificates yesterday
and this was the only Nathan Sanders I found in Manhattan in the 1880 or
1890s. My gggm is not buried there, but her husband is not buried with her.
I am at a loss to figure this mystery out.

Thanks in advance for everyone's help/opinions on Salem Fields.
