Beuthen/Bytom Shtetl Co-Op #general

Ackerfeld Lance <lancea@...>
 

Although I have never been to Beuthen <grin>, I am looking for people
interested in participating in a Shtetl Co-Op for this city.

For those that are not familiar with this project - it involves
transcribing birth, marriage and death indices that have been extracted
from LDS microfilms to a spreadsheet or text file. The information >from the
spreadsheets is, consequently, transferred to the Jri-Pl database for the
benefit of all those researching this place.

If you are interested in Beuthen and could render assistance in this
important work, I'd really like to hear >from you.

Thanking you in advance,

Lance Ackerfeld
Yiftah, Israel.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Dear Libby go to the new LitvakSIG website (and bookmark it for easy future
reference). Read thru the FAQ's by Howard Margol and Ada Greenblatt, and
read
about the research groups - you will learn all about the importance of
revision lists, and how we have organized in groups to buy them, translate
them and put that data into our searchable online "All Lithuania" Database.
Go to: http://www.jewishgen.org/litvak/

The website has information for people at all levels of skill, but you'll
note
that we suggest that if you are a real beginner you start back with
JewishGen's excellent and comprehensive FAQ's written and frequently updated
by Warren Blatt.

Waldheim Cemetery - Chicago #hungary

EaronDavis@...
 

I have visited Waldheim Cemetery. The major problem there is that the
"Cemetery" is actually composed of many different cemeteries which
consolidated at various points in time. I found the staff to be friendly and
helpful, but they did not have the time to look up much data. None of their
records were accessible to the public - except through their doing a primitive
search on their computer. Last time I was there, they agreed to look up only
two names for me.

When they did have a relevant listing on their computer, all they had was the
name and date of burial. If you send a letter, they would probably respond to
a small donation along with your request for information. When I visited
there, the only time they really perked up was when their records indicated
that "perpetual care" had not been purchased for a grave. Then they really
wanted to know who you were and made sure you could find the grave. After
all, they are a business and tend to be more interested in helping people who
come there to find a particular grave site - rather than looking up names for
people who will never even visit, let alone provide them with business.
Waldheim was the primary Jewish cemetery in the Chicagoland area for decades,
but I don't think it is any longer the main one.

A new breakthrough leads me to the Waldheim Cemetery in Chicago. Has anyone
done any research there? Short of travelling there myself, are their records
accessible? I will be writing to them this week, just thought someone out
there might have some tips for me...

Hungarian Jews in the 1848 War of Freedom #hungary

Ujlaki Gyorgy <ujlaki.gyorgy@...>
 

The Military Rabbinate of the Hungarian Ministry of Defense published a book
about the Hungarian Jews in the 1848 War of Freedom, titled:

Az 1848-1849. evi szabadsagharc zsido vonatkozasai. (Jewish Aspects of the
1848-1849 War of Freedom).

BTW, the military rabbi is Robert Frolich dandartabornok (I think he would be a
one star general in US Army).

Re: Searching for a name:- give any detail your father does remember. #hungary

Prof. Harry J. Hirschhorn <hirshorn@...>
 

I have some friends here in our yishuv who were connected to the SATMAR
rebbes. I shall ask them, for the Hebrew name of an ARNOLD KLEIN or Klien
who was married to a BERTHA These grandparents had 2 children and owned a
grocery store
It surely would help, if the people who want to find the Hebrew name of
their grandfather would spell out their own first and last names, both
English and Hebrew,
It would not hurt to give more details, that the father does remember, such
as the village or was it SATHMAR?.
