Moldova Impressions #general

Cassio Tolpolar
 

Hello,

I wanted to let you know that I am launching my blog about my trip to Moldova,
which happened a few months ago. I think this would be a nice way to keep
interested people informed. Every week I should post a bit of my detailed
impressions on the country during the 12 day trip and what happened (and is
happening) after that as well. Hope you can check out the stories, discoveries and
thoughts. Just click: http://www.moldovaimpressions.blogspot.com

Thanks,

SITE CITE - Maine Jewish History #usa

Harris Gleckman <gleckman@...>
 

www.MaineJews.Org is a community-based history project providing
information on Jewish citizens of Maine through a state of the art
genealogical and historical resource reflecting the Jewish traditions
of memory, remembrance and inter-generational learning.

The website is one of the main activities of the The
Documenting Old Maine Jewry (DOMJ) project which is starting its fourth
year after Rosh Hashanah. The project continues to grow and expand its
outreach. In the past year the DOMJ has established working relations with
the Maine Historical Society and the Greater Boston Jewish Genealogical
Society. The website database now has records of 23,040 people with
significant Maine ties and information on 96 Maine-based religious
organizations, 170 Maine-based community organizations, 254 businesses
important for Maine Jews, 15 Jewish camps, 2600 headstone images, as well
as 10 scanned commemorative books and documents.

On the software side, there is now a city/town/county search function at
www.davidkrut.com/pj/search.city.php and the beginnings of home pages for
Jewish areas within the state. In addition there is map software that
serves as a complement to the local area homepages and permits access to
information on the immigrants areas and emigrant destinations .
The Maine Jewish map is at www.davidkrut.com/pj/indexgeo2.php
The 'from-away' map is at www.davidkrut.com/pj/indexgeoFW.php
The 'Old Country' map is at www.davidkrut.com/pj/indexgeoTOC.php
(These addresses will need to be cut and pasted into your browser.
Access to the map index is also available >from each DOMJ page.)

The first effort of the joint project of DOMJ and the Maine
Historical Society undertaking is to build an inventory of Maine Jewish
records and artifacts and to catalogue the state of their preservation.
Susan Cummings-Lawrence is leading this effort. She has developed a
state-wide listing of potential sources and is now visiting communities
though out the state to check on the preservation status of the material.
If you know of have material that has migrated out of state, do contact her
at <slawrence1@...>

In the last four months we have added the following sources :

320 names with street addresses >from the 1947 roster of the Bangor
Hebrew Community Center
200 records on the leadership of Temple Beth El (Portland)
75 names >from 1955 - 1960 list of Presidents of Portland Jewish
organizations (Ben Band, Supplement #1)
156 references to Maine obituaries in the Boston Advocate (1935 -
2006)
114 Russian-born, Yiddish-speaking 1910 Census entries for Calais,
Old Town, Gardiner, Augusta, Bath, Rockland, and Waterville
71 Russian-born, Yiddish-speaking 1910 and 1920 Census entries for
Rockland

1955 Dedication Program for Temple Israel (Old Town)
1955 Dedication Book (extracts) for Temple Israel (Old Town)
1912 - 1913 listing of the Rockland Jewish Community
1913 - 1914 listing of Jews >from the Augusta Register

Mt Sinai (Portland) cemetery - additional data >from the 1960 Mt
Sinai Plot Indexes

Please so forward this email to family, friends, synagogue newsletters
and community journals so that others might enjoy exploring their Maine
Jewish history and consider adding their family stories to the website.

Database of Jewish cemeteries in the Rhine-Maas-region #germany

MODERATOR NOTE - TO avoid garbled text in these messages please do not use
accent marks that are not part of the USA English alphabet. Use Vowel + E for
the German umlaut and follow that spelling with the original spelling (no accent)
followed by (vowel) umlaut. Example: Loewenstein / Lowenstein o umlaut

Dear genners,

the Salomon Ludwig Steinheim-Institute for German-Jewish History in
Duisburg, Germany, recently finished its documentation of 47 Jewish
cemeteries in the “euregio Rhine-Maas-region, which comprises part of
North Rhine Westfalia and part of the Dutch province of Limburg:
BOXMEER/VIERLINGSBEEK (NL), BRUEGGEN (D), BRUEGGEN-BRACHT (D), DORMAGEN
(D), DORMAGEN-ZONS (D), GELDERN (D), GENNEP (NL), GREVENBROICH (D),
GR-HEMMERDEN (D), GR-HUELCHRATH (D), GR-WEVELINGHOVEN (D);
GRIMLINGHAUSEN (D); ISSUM (D), JUECHEN (D), J-GARZWEILER (D),
J-HOCHNEUKIRCH (D), KEMPEN (D), KORSCHENBROICH (D); K-GLEHN (D), KREFELD
(new cemetery) (D), KR-HUELS (D), KR-LINN (D), MEERBUSCH-LANK-LATUM (D),
MOENCHENGLADBACH (D), MG-GIESENKIRCHEN (D), MG-ODENKIRCHEN (D),
MG-RHEINDAHLEN (D), MG-RHEYDT (D), MG-WICKRATH (D),
NETTETAL-KALDENKIRCHEN (D), NEUSS (D), ROERMOND (oude kerkhof, old and
new part) (NL), ROMMERSKIRCHEN (D), R-BUTZHEIM (D), SCHIEFBAHN
(Bertzweg) (D), SCHIEFBAHN-KNICKELSDORF (D), SCHWALMTAL-WALDNIEL (D),
SITTARD (NL), TOENISVORST-ST. TOENIS (D), T-VORST (D), VENLO (old and
new cemetery) (NL), VIERSEN (D), V-DUELKEN (D), V-SUECHTELN (D), WILLICH
(D), W-ANRATH (D) (NL = Netherlands; D = Germany).

The "image-text inventory, documentation and comparative research on
Jewish cemeteries in Dutch and German frame of reference" was carried
out within the framework of a "setup of a euregional network for
regional historic research" sponsored by the euregio rhein-maas-nord,
the provincial government in Limburg and the government of North Rhine Westfalia.

The database, which has now been presented online, contains more than
3400 gravestone inscriptions, the oldest >from the year 1715, with German
translations, commentaries, biographical details and photographs. It
will be continously complemented (additions and corrections,
particularly those of biographical details, are welcome!).

The names, years of death, the Hebrew, German and Dutch inscriptions and
their translations into German are fully searchable both in German and
Hebrew. You can access the database via the main page

http://www.steinheim-institut.de:50580/cgi-bin/epidat

where you can also find the cemeteries of AROLSEN, the old cemetery of
FRANKFURT am Main (Battonnstrasse), HAMBURG-ALTONA, MUELHEIM an der Ruhr
and WINSEN.

The database is constantly being extended to include more
cemeteries and inscriptions. To access the database one or more of the
cemeteries has to be chosen under "Auswahlmenue". Searching can then be
carried out in German or Hebrew (change language by [alt]+[shift]).

If you do choose only one cemetery, you can go to "Inschriften", where you can
access chronologically ordered inscriptions. You can look at them one by one or
select a particular year under "Jahr". Information about the documentation
funding as well as conventions for illustration of the Hebrew inscriptions
is found under "Information" (a transaltion into English is planned).

SITE CITE -UPDATE Police foreigner files in France 1938-1948 #germany

Manuela Wyler <m.wyler@...>
 

Genners
The website jewishtraces.org was updated with 6500 new entries in the
database Various list 1939-1945 on the search page at
http://www.jewishtraces.org/search.php or through Steve Morse search page.

The project jewishtraces is run by a French nonprofit organization
dorot|association d'histoire, which goal is to provide information for
families and researchers on the fate of Jewish refugees in Europe, the
online databases have now 25 000 entries all related to documents, mostly
from adminsitrative sources.
Another set of 240 000 entries are offline and being processed in order to
be published.

The update of this month are made of list of foreigners staying in the
department of the Rhone in France (Lyon capital of the administrative area)
The 6500 entries were selected through a database of more than 50000 names
from which Germans, Austrians, Polish, Czechs, Turkish, stateless etc. were
extracted for the period between 1938 and 1948.
The birth place is not given, but in the comment field you have access to
the reference file in the Archives departementales du Rhone in Lyon where
you can have access to the file. The average size of a foreigner file is
5-10 documents, sometimes with picture ( 50%) handwritten letters, ID from
the former country of residence or citizenship. Sometimes it can be up to
100 documents for an individual.

Also we entered the dates of the file beginning and ending dates.

These files are planned to be digitized beginning of 2009 but will not be
online because of regulation.
If you have questions about individuals >from other nationalities than the
one listed or other comments or if you would request a copy of a file, feel
free to contact the website at contact[@]dorot.fr ( remove the
brackets),also if your relatives were in this area before 1938 or after 1948
information can be provided and a copy of the file can be made as long as
it's closed before 1958 due to the regulation in France on private
information and the new archive law.

Also check the birth date among the answers you get, because often the first
name was "Frenchised" by the administration or the individuals.

Also a new article on Kristallnacht was published with the testimony of
Herschel Grynszpan's father at the Eichmann trial in Jerusalem regarding his
son and the deportation of Polish Jews >from the Reich to Zbaszyn.
http://www.jewishtraces.org/

Chana tova to all and may this year bring us answers to our researches.

In keeping with Jewishgen rules, this notice is sent
during the first week of the month.
