Searching: STARVOLSKY Family #general

BK <bkasser@...>
 

Anyone know anything about the STARVOLSKY family >from a small shtetl near
Bialystok called Yashnofsky. The shtetl name may not be spelled correctly.
The phonetic spelling is the way I remember my father saying it. My
grandfather changed his name to RUBENSTEIN and emigrated to Detroit Michigan in the late 20's.

I have a black and white picture with two people. The inscription appears to be in Hebrew or Yisddish-in any case I can't read it.

Any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

JRI-Poland, Tarnow #general

Many thanks to Howard Fink and his group for the
fine Tarnow job. One question and that is UMLAUTS.
Is it at all possible to show Umlauts in the name
when they appear? This applies to any and all names
whenever and wherever they appear. I think this is
a fair question without criticizing the work that
all of the volunteers do.

Hebrew calendar (was: Translation of Tombstone) #general

Daniel Vulkan <daniel@...>
 

In article <LYR6197-10222--approved-soc-genealogy-
jewish@NEWSPOST.NEWSGUY.COM>, Ury Link <uryl@globalxs.nl> writes
You writ: The Calendar info on JewishGen confirms that the my gf's death
after sundown
Aug 1, 1903 was Tisha B'Av

Is this date good? I think that 9 Be-Av Htrsag(5663) was on 3 August 1903
and not on 1 August, Pleas check it ( I don't have a Jewish calendar from
1903, but if you know that every 19 years the same days and dates come beck
you can check it with the Ancyc.Judaica if you go beck >from 1922 -19 = 1903
).But of course I can do also mistakes.
"The Comprehensive Hebrew Calendar" by the late Arthur Spier (Feldheim
Publishers, 1986) confirms that Tisha B'Av (9 Av) 5663 fell on Sunday 2
August 1903. (And therefore it started the previous evening, 1 August.)

Although the Hebrew calendar includes a 19 year cycle, it is not true to
say that the correspondence with the civil calendar will repeat exactly
every 19 years (although it is only likely to be out by a few days).

There are two reasons for this: firstly, the civil calendar itself is
not regular (it will only repeat exactly every 2,800 years); secondly, a
number of extra adjustments need to be made to the Hebrew calendar
(adding or subtracting a day every few years, according to prescribed
rules), principally to ensure that certain festivals don't occur on
inconvenient days of the week.

For those who are interested, the book I mentioned above describes the
operation of the calendar in great detail; I am sure there are also
plenty of resources on the Web (try looking at the "Calendars" category
on Cyndi's List ( http://www.cyndislist.com ).

Postwar address in Alsace #general

Ed Levine <edlevine@...>
 

I am seeking to locate a first cousin in France by the name of Janine
Stern BARUCH. She is the daughter of my mother's brother Max STERN,
born c. 1910 in Lichenroth, Germany. He emigrated to Alsace-Lorraine
before WWII, and his last known address was

c/o Freyburger
18 Rue de Tunis
Mulhouse, France

Max, who died in the early 1960s, had a daughter. She is approximately
60 and her married name is Janine BARUCH. Our trail ends there. Can
anyone provide me with any clues about any of these items? Please reply
to edlevine@idt.net. Thanks!

Chelmno death camp #general

Daniel Wagner <Cpwagner@...>
 

I recently found out that members of my mother's family perished in
Chelmno rather than Auschwitz, as we all believed until now. I did a
net search and found information about Chelmno that I think MUST be
read.

An introductory note by Leon Zamosc about the Chelmno extermination
camp may be found at

http://weber.ucsd.edu/~lzamosc/gchelmno.html

More information on Chelmno may be found at:

http://weber.ucsd.edu/~lzamosc/gmoreinf.html

In addition, there is a most unique document on the web, which
contains final testimonies of the last Jewish prisoners in the death
camp of Chelmno. These were written on a notebook in Polish, which was
found by the liberating Russian Red Army and given to Yad Vashem only
a few years ago.

The testimonies which contain also the victims' last requests and last
regards to possible surviving relatives, were published in Hebrew, as
a personal venture of Mrs. Ester Reiss >from Jerusalem in a booklet
named: "Chelmno". They were translated to English by Ada Holtzman,
together with the introduction of Shmuel Krakowski and Ilia Altman
from Yad Vashem, and posted in Ada's web page at:
http://www.geocities.com/Paris/Rue/4017/chelmno.htm

They are painful and hard to read, but they contain surnames and
locations, and definitely have a genealogical value.

Ada Holtzman should be commended for her work.

Daniel
