GDLProject@...
 

The JGS of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County (JGSCV) -- California, USA
is meeting on March 1, 2009 1:30-3:30 p.m at Temple Adat Elohim, 2420 E
Hillcrest Drive, Thousand Oaks. CA

Program: Town-Wide Research: Bringing Your Shtetl To Life

The Ariogala Research Group has been able to â??re-createâ?? the life of their
ancestral shtetl in Lithuania, typical of eastern European villages, whose
centuries of Jewish life were destroyed in the Holocaust. Using a variety of
sources and documents >from 1765 to 1940, the history and life of typical
Lithuanian towns will be described. Though the focus will be on Ariogala,
Lithuania, this approach can be applied to hundreds of Eastern European shtetls.
Dozens of types of records, maps, photographs, and memorabilia obtained >from
archives, museums, survivors,descendents, personal visits, newspapers, and
current residents will be presented, to illustrate how to bring your shtetl to
life. If your ancestors came >from eastern Europe, including Belarus, Latvia,
Lithuania, Poland and Ukraine - this program will have meaning for your family
history.

Speakers: David B. Hoffman, Ph.D., organized the Ariogala Research Group. He
is President of the Litvak Special Interest Group and the Jewish Family
History Foundation, and serves on the Board of JGSLA as Editor of its research
journal, Roots-Key. Sonia Hoffman is Past President of JGSLA and coordinates
the Grand Duchy Project of the Jewish Family History Foundation, focusing on
18th century censuses..

The meeting is open to all and there is no charge.

Fogel or Vogel Family from Riga #latvia

West24th@...
 

I'm new to this SIG and researching the name Abraham FOGEL who was born about
1850 Riga, Latvia. The son of Solomon FOGEL. He came to The United States
with his wife Rose and several children in The early 1890s settling first in
Buffalo, NY where they had many more children and changed The spelling of their
name to VOGEL. After 1910 the family moved to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where
Abraham passed away in 1919. We could not find any record where or when his wife
Rose passed away. If these names sound at all familiar to anybody then please
write me directly.
Thanks in advance for any additional information.

Aldgate Jews Temporary Shelter #unitedkingdom

Dave Lichtenstein
 

Hello there

I hope that some one can assist me please. I am trying to find out more
information on the Aldgate Jews Temporary Shelter, 63 Mansell St, Aldgate
(East London).

My late father Heinz Lichtenstein before departing for Mombasa on the SS
Watussi on 13th January 1939 >from Southampton had this as his address.
Other passengers on that boat who had the same address were: Gerhard Braun;
Wolf Friedman; Leonhard Meyer; Max Meyer and Hans Schneideman. All were
German Jews who had left Nazi Germany.

I have a number of questions:
1. Does that shelter still exist today.
2. If not what is located at that address.
3. Are there any records kept of those persons who stayed there in late
1938 - early 1939.

I am trying to attempt to piece together my father's journey >from Germany to
the UK.

I understand that there may have been a newspaper article and possibly
photographs of those passengers embarking on the ship's voyage 69.

Again can any body assist me in these areas.

With many thanks in advance
