Names on Headstones #general

Glenda Rogers <gar929@...>
 

I have photos of the headstones of my grandmother, her sister and
her brother and they all appear to have different parental names on
it. Any idea what the explanation would be?

Re: Drohobycz #galicia

Simon Barak
 

The town is usually called Drogobych. It is south to Lvov in Ukraine and
was an important Kehilla that managed the matters of neighbouring
Borislav (where my GGF lived). You could have found it even on your
mispelling. I wrote Drohobycz in the Shtetl Seeker and voila!
Coordinates 4921 2330 appeared.

Iasi (Jassy) Romania family #general

JimYarin <jimyarin@...>
 

I recently received information about the building the GOLDNER family owned in
Iasi, Romania, address No. 9 Strada C. Dobrogeanu-Ghera (formerly Strade Gh.
Mirzescu). In 1948, one Elisa Ungar managed the building, and occupied one of
the apartments. The other apartments were occupied by tenants Bronzon,
Schwartz, Herscovici, Iancovici, and Kleiner. Elisa Ungar subsequently came to
Israel, and in 1958 lived at 12 Victor Hugo Street, Iaffo-Tel-Aviv (Jaffa?).

If any of this rings a bell, please let me know. Thanks.

Re: DP camps at Deggendorf #general

Jim & Sara Feldman <feldmans@...>
 

My understanding is that Deggendorf had an UNWRA Camp that served refugees
evacuated as part of the response to the Berlin Blockade. (It didn't take
the Airlift staff long to observe that empty planes could evacuate refugees
more easily than overstuffed planes could feed them.) The camp may have
served other purposes as well.

I had several relatives who were housed there when they fled the post WWII
polish progroms and headed for territory held by the Allies. They were
first housed at Templehof in Berlin. Yes, after surviving in the Soviet
Union and then "going home to Poland", it did strike them as peculiar to be
heading to Berlin.

I can put you in contact with people who were there. Contact me privately.
I have no doubt that UNWRA had records, but I have no idea how you access
them.

Is there a "white pages" directory of Poland available
on the Web?

Re: Raciaz #poland

As town fund raising coordinator for Raciaz, I am happy to announce
that the funding has been completed and the data went "live" yesterday.

Many thanks to those who contributed their time to prepare this data
for the web, and those who contributed their money to make the data
available to all of us.

Between Raciaz and Nowe Miasto, more than 3000 names have been added to
the website. >from these records, I have already found many surprises
and gained new mysteries about my families.

We are still seeking funding for additional towns >from the Mlawa
archive - Biezun, Ciechanow, Kurzbork, Mlawa, Plonsk, Radzanow,
Szrensk, and Zuromin. If you were interested in Nowe Miasto or Raciaz,
I encourage you to contribute to the fund for neighboring towns
instead, people moved around a lot. JRI-Poland welcomes your
contribution.

I attempted several times to enter into the Belarus SIG

I am unable to access it. Should I look elsewhere and if so,
where would I need to go to.

Thnx for forwarding my email to Laurel, but I am still
unable to get email back to her - still get failure notices.
