Mourning house Vladislavova St. Prague #austria-czech

morav@...
 

Hello,

Perusing obituaries in the Prager Tagblatt online I found a reference to a
mourning house (I think) on "Vladislavgasse" in Prague. I know that there
was a Jewish cemetery on the very short Vladislavova street which predates
the old Jewish cemetery by Pinkas synagogue. My grandparents lived on
Vladislavova and I stayed there with them as a child for a time in the
1960s. My grandfather had worked decades earlier in the Insurance company
building that now sits over where the cemetery was. This was the site of
some controversy as the insurance company did some construction on the
site around the year 2000 without proper regard for the fact that it was
once a cemetery.

Just curious about where the old mourning house might have been.
Perhaps I lived in it. Of course as a child I had no idea about any of
this, but the place seemed heavily suffused with history even to a 10
year old boy. Any ideas?

Research group? #lodz #poland

Rita Kashub-Jacobs <beegeesmusic@...>
 

I am looking for a group to research Family History around Lodz, especially
KROSNIEWICE near Kutno. Is there any formal group that anyone can
recommend, especially with experienced Polish guides? I understand that
there is one such group that also encompasses Israel as well. If any
information or previous participants can recommend such a group, please
contact me.

Thank you,

The first IAJGS 2010 Conference Newsletter is out. If it hasn't
already come to your virtual mailbox, you can read it at:

http://eepurl.com/epMd

Exciting developments are taking place daily and the newsletter is the
way to keep informed about plans for 2010. If you haven't subscribed,
you can do so at:

http://www.jgsla2010.com/about/sign-up-for-the-announcements-newsletter/

Mark your calendars now to attend >from Sunday, July 11th through
Friday, July 16th.
We are also scheduling a variety of optional pre-conference activities
which we will announce soon.

Early news is that Arthur Kurzweil will be our "Genealogist in
Residence" for the entire conference week. Author of ">from Generation
to Generation," and one of America's foremost experts in Jewish
genealogy, Kurzweil will be giving lectures and teaching classes,
along with performing his show "Searching for God in a Magic Shop," a
unique exploration of the world of illusions, offering profound ideas
of Jewish thought.

We're planning an inspiring, opening Sunday where you can immerse
yourself in an assortment of beginner's workshops and stroll through a
SIG "Market Square" to view a cornucopia of regional special interest
groups, get first-hand help with your research questions and meet the
foreign archivists and experts in overseas research who will be
lecturing later in the week. There will also be demonstrations of
shtetl crafts like weaving and needlework, along with cooking
workshops, films and more.

The conference hotel, the JW Marriott at L.A Live, is due to open in a
few months, but it's already looking quite spiffy. Still...it's the
participants filling the vast space that will bring this conference to
life, so start making plans now to attend >from July 11-16, 2010.

If you've got a talent, expertise or topic to share, consider submitting a
lecture proposal when the call for papers opens on November 15th. If

came >from Bialystok. I sent him information at the time, but doubted
there was a connection. Since then, I learned that my GGG's brother Ike
changed his name to Gollop and his son was Frank Gallop - announcer for
Perry Como and Milton Berle. I tried the email address that I received
in 2007 and it no longer is valid. Can anyone connect me to him?

District Research Groups and the All Lithuania Database #lithuania

Dorfleiv@...
 

LitvakSIG has 12 district research groups (DRG) matching administrative
districts ("uyezds") of the Russian Empire period (1795-1917). They focus
primarily on translating revision lists, family lists, tax lists, and
voter lists for the entire district, including all shtetls in the
district. The premise on which DRGs are organized is that families often
lived in one shtetl but were officially registered in another shtetl or
had extended family within a close geographic area. Collecting and
researching on the district level is generally more fruitful than narrowly
focusing only on the shtetl a family was "from".

It is also a great deal more cost effective to join together to acquire
data than to seek it alone.

Qualified contributors for a given DRG are sent Excel files of all records
translated for that district and new translations generated >from available
funds. The qualification level varies by district but is generally $100US
per district and $200 US for the Telsiai and Vilnius districts. Smaller
donations can be made over time to build up to the qualification level.
Our aim is to make the contribution a single, cumulative requirement,
however if a DRG runs out of funds, it may be required to raise the
minimum contribution level for all contributors to continue its mission.

Data is provided to the qualified contributors at least one year before
it is made publicly available on the All Lithuania Database ("ALD"). This
week 30,000 lines of new data have become available to the public because
of the work of theseDistricts, their coordinators and the generosity of
their contributors. It is now searchable via the ALD. The new data comes
from shtetls in the districts of Kaunas, Oshmiany, Siauliai, Trakai,
Telsiai, Vilnius, Ukmerge and Zarasai.

The most cost effective way for you to find information about your family
is to join with others who share your interest in an area. All these
records which are searchable freely on the ALD (in excess of 800,000 lines
of data now) were paid for by donations. All money raised by the Districts
is used for that translation work. We can only continue while we have the
money to carry on the work and there is still a great deal more to be
done.

Please take a moment to visit the website, www.litvaksig.org and select
Join/Contribute to make a donation to the District(s) of interest to you.

Lotnicza Street Cemetery in Wroclaw/Breslau #austria-czech

Lotnicza Street Cemetery in Wroclaw/Breslau

Our members with Wroclaw/Breslau roots may like to know
that there is a group of dedicated young people in Wroclaw
who have made it their task to research, restore and record
the Jewish Cemetery at Lotnicza Street.

A year ago, in October 2008, the group established the
“Foundation for the Wroclaw Jewish Cemetery at Lotnicza Street”.
The founder, Malgorzata (Gosia) Frackowiak, has summarized
the aims of the Foundation:

To take care of and to restore those parts of the Lotnicza Street cemetery
that have become neglected over the years, to protect the vegetation
within the area, and to develop an educational program that promotes
Jewish history, culture and religion as well as tolerance. Only after the
site will be thoroughly cleaned, will it be possible to determine which
gravestones may be restored. Full photographic documentation is planned,
with the eventual creation of a Name List.

In fact, this work has already been in progress for several years. The aim
is to bring the project on to a more formal and organized level, hopefully
with the eventual cooperation of the Wroclaw Jewish Community.

I am personally familiar with the stories of several persons who have found
the burial sites of their relatives thanks to Gosia’s knowledge and
enthusiasm. The "Verband ehemaliger Breslauer in Israel" (Association of
former citizens of Breslau in Israel), have publicly expressed appreciation
of Gosia’s devoted work, in their Bulletin.

For details of the Foundation and their goals, see their web page at:
http://www.friedhofcosel.info/en/foundation.php

You may like to inform your friends about this project, and also any
relevant institution.

Does anyone know which synagogue he was affiliated with? I do know that in
1919 he and the late Rabbi Abba Hillel Silver appeared on the same ship's
manifest sheet returning >from Europe. Can I assume that in the early 1920s
he was at Rabbi Silver's Temple Tiferet Israel in Cleveland, Ohio?

Cemeteries announced an on-going effort to clean-up in Bayside Cemetery in
Ozone Park, NY by a group of volunteers scheduled for 25 October 2009.
Could someone please comment on the progress of that effort?

--
I would be very interested to hear if any true progress has been made at
Bayside. The last time I was almost to years ago and the area I needed was
totally overgrown. My cousin who came with me on that visit compared
Bayside to the abandoned cemeteries of eastern Europe and he felt that ones in
Europe were in better condition.

Please let us know if any progress has been made because I am still looking
for family graves at Bayside which could not be found because of the
condition of the cemetery.
