hebrew list - Obodovka #general

Arline and Sidney Sachs <sachs@...>
 

I have what I think is a list of names in Hebrew or Yiddish - there are no
vowels.
There is a cover page with about 10 lines and 2 pages of what I assume are
names.
It is >from Obodovka. Will someone please volunteer to translate it so it
can be added to the cemetery project.

There was a recent query about the shtetl, Bransk, in Bialystok province. I
urge anyone with any interest in the Bialystok region, especially Bransk, to
read this wonderful book, which has previously been mentioned on JewishGen,
some time ago. For the sake of the many new subscribers, I'm offering the
information again. (I actually ordered it >from Amazon.com because of the
previous posting!)

update on MOSAIC, a Chronicle of Five Generations #general

Diane Armstrong <diwriter@...>
 

I recently told JewishGen readers about my family history, MOSAIC, a
Chronicle of Five Generations, which has just been published by Random
House Australia, but I didn't mention some of the family lines included in
the book.

As I mentioned, MOSAIC is a family saga which spans 100 years and four
continents and took me eight years to research. It recreates life in an
orthodox Krakow family at the turn of the century and traces the fortunes
and misfortunes of my remarkable relatives in Poland and then follows the
regeneration of the family in the United States. Israel, England, France
and Australia.

Some of the major family lines vividly described in MOSAIC are:
The Baldingers of Nowy Sacz and Krakow, the Spiras >from Szczakowa and
Krakow, the Fausts and Goldmans >from Lancut and Budy Lancutskie, the
Bratters >from Zolkiew (Zolkwa) and Lwow (Lviv).

HaMelitz number 46, 1899 #general

Theo Travis <travis@...>
 

Further to my previous message, I should have added that I checked the
Jewishgen database for the relevant town and there is no mention of Gudel at
all.

But it says in Pinkas haKehillot that there are a significant number of
Gudel donors and I was told that they are in with the lists of Marijampol
donors for that issue of that year.

Searching: LOWENSTEIN, NY 1920 #general

Theo Travis <travis@...>
 

According to the New York census of 1920 my grandfather William COHEN was
living with his brother in law David LOWENSTEIN at 230 E 2nd St, NYC. None
of the COHEN sisters that we know of were married to a LOWENSTEIN - unless
it was one who stayed in Lithuania, whose name we don't know. In any case
there were only the two of them living there at the time. I would like to
trace living relatives of David LOWENSTEIN to see if they can clear up the
mystery and would welcome any advice. But I live in England, so it may not
be so easy!

Thanks

Re: British liberators of Concentration Camps #general

Stephen Mednick <smednick@...>
 

Darren,

One place to start is the Holocaust Museum in Washington.

When I was there in August I noticed that at the entrance to the Museum they
have the flags of all the allied countries that actually participated in the
liberation of any of the camps. They also had the flags for the various Army
units involved. I was even surprised to see the New Zealand flag on the
wall. Apparently New Zealand Army units had some involvement in liberating
one of the concentration camps in Europe.

Anyway, I'm sure the information you're seeking would be readily available
at the Museum.

Good luck.

Hi,

Does anyone know where I can find records of the two concentration camps
that were liberated by the British in WWII? I believe the camps were
Bergen-Belsen and Neungamme (sp?).

I am increasingly irritated that this list solicits my
financial support while my posts are returned as being off-topic.

A recent post included my great-aunt's recent obit- I didn't
have the e-mail address for the cemetery project and noted in that post
that I wanted the informaton forwarded.

I also referenced a "Who's Who" book that listed my great aunt,
asking for more info on it, hoping an entry would give me more
genealogical information.

off-topic than why are my posts?

Help Needed in San Francisco #general

Are there any Jewishgenners in the San Francisco area available who wouldn't
mind doing a very big favor in checking some marriage index's for the 1920s.
I'd be more than happy reciprocating any similar request in NYC. This might
help uncover a lost family branch.
Please e-mail me directly. Thanks in advance
