Recovering Names; Memorializing Lives #romania

Yad Vashem issues an Urgent call for volunteers worldwide:

When the Central Database of Shoah Victims' Names was uploaded onto the
Yad Vashem Website < <http://www.yadvashem.org/>www.yadvashem.org >
in November 2004, Yad Vashem announced an International 11th Hour
Campaign to recover as many additional names of Holocaust victims as
possible, before the generation that best remembers them passes. An
urgent call for volunteers to implement grass roots campaigns is now
being issued to Jewish communities and organizations worldwide.

Jewish Genealogists: lend your expertise to this the historic
project; urge your friends and family members to join the campaign to
recover the names and identities of those who did not survive and
have yet to be recorded on "Pages of Testimony".

Anyone committed to ensuring that no Holocaust victim is forgotten,
would be a significant asset to this endeavor.

With the aid of promotional materials developed by Yad Vashem,
volunteers will reach out to survivors and their families and assist
them in registering the names of Jews who they know were murdered in
the Shoah. Through synagogues, Holocaust centers, JCC's, Jewish
student organizations, senior centers, and social service agencies
we can reach those who still remember. Time is running out, but, by
working together and spreading the word, we can still recover those
missing names.

Yad Vashem is also seeking cooperation with research projects to
reconstruct pre-war Eastern European Jewish communities. Please
contact me directly.

To volunteer send your name, address, phone number and email address

Re: DeVine or Vine - French Revolution #general

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

There has been quite a lot of interest in this topic and David Grist wrote in
amplifying his original data: <My Great Grandfather was Arthur Courtney VINE
born 1881, Portsea Hampshire, his Father Edward VINE born 1841 (waiting
confirmation), I now know that it is impossible for a person of Aristocracy to
be Jewish, I did not know this before ...... My mother also tells me there
maybe another name, Jacobs or Issacs to follow.>

David told us as a starter that Arthur *was Jewish*.

I followed up these lead and have tracked this VINE family back to the early
1800s in Hampshire - but to me it seems impossible, >from the evidence, that
the VINE family was Jewish. They may well have fled >from France.

What is much more likely is that Arthur's mother [first-name Victoria] came
from the very old-established Portsmouth Jewish community - see:
http://www.jackwhite.net/portsmouth-synagogue/

Indeed there are ISAACS [not Issacs] and JACOBS who are very likely Jewish
living in the Portsea/Havant area as early as 1851 and they are already
British-born. Edward [born abt 1840], a butcher married Victoria {nee?] and he
died before 1891 - Edward's father was James - a farmer married to Jane [nee
?]. James was born in 1812 in Otterbourne, Hampshire, England and that is
getting close to the French Revolution! To get further details one needs to go
to Parish register, but that is outside the scope of Jewish genealogy. I have
found many James VINE christenings >from the late 1700s onwards in the
Portsmouth area which supports my previous thoughts on this family.

And surely here is *our* Edward VINE: Eduardus VINE born 08 Jan 1840 Christened
27 Jan 1840 Brockhampton, Hampshire, England - Father: Jacobi VINE Mother
Joannae AYLES - surely James and Jane?

Why they should have these Latin name unless they were of French and/or
catholic origin is a mystery to me - and another point, I have found them in
the area as VINN pre the revolution!

So we now have to look into the origins of Victoria {unknown} who probably
brought up her family as Jews after her husband's early death. I look forward
to hearing >from David when he has gathered more evidence of his Jewish
ancestry.

There has been quite a lot of interest in this topic and David Grist wrote in
amplifying his original data: <My Great Grandfather was Arthur Courtney VINE
born 1881, Portsea Hampshire, his Father Edward VINE born 1841 (waiting
confirmation), I now know that it is impossible for a person of Aristocracy to
be Jewish, I did not know this before ...... My mother also tells me there
maybe another name, Jacobs or Issacs to follow.>

David told us as a starter that Arthur *was Jewish*.

I followed up these lead and have tracked this VINE family back to the early
1800s in Hampshire - but to me it seems impossible, >from the evidence, that
the VINE family was Jewish. They may well have fled >from France.

What is much more likely is that Arthur's mother [first-name Victoria] came
from the very old-established Portsmouth Jewish community - see:
http://www.jackwhite.net/portsmouth-synagogue/

Indeed there are ISAACS [not Issacs] and JACOBS who are very likely Jewish
living in the Portsea/Havant area as early as 1851 and they are already
British-born. Edward [born abt 1840], a butcher married Victoria {nee?] and he
died before 1891 - Edward's father was James - a farmer married to Jane [nee
?]. James was born in 1812 in Otterbourne, Hampshire, England and that is
getting close to the French Revolution! To get further details one needs to go
to Parish register, but that is outside the scope of Jewish genealogy. I have
found many James VINE christenings >from the late 1700s onwards in the
Portsmouth area which supports my previous thoughts on this family.

And surely here is *our* Edward VINE: Eduardus VINE born 08 Jan 1840 Christened
27 Jan 1840 Brockhampton, Hampshire, England - Father: Jacobi VINE Mother
Joannae AYLES - surely James and Jane?

Why they should have these Latin name unless they were of French and/or
catholic origin is a mystery to me - and another point, I have found them in
the area as VINN pre the revolution!

So we now have to look into the origins of Victoria {unknown} who probably
brought up her family as Jews after her husband's early death. I look forward
to hearing >from David when he has gathered more evidence of his Jewish
ancestry.

In further reference to the Holocaust and Teheran (Tehran), you may be
interested to know that the World Jewish Congress made a list of 1675 Jewish
refugees, mostly >from Poland, who were in Teheran, Persia, after escaping
via the USSR. The most common towns of origin for these refugees were
these:

Bedzin, Bielsko, Cieszanow, Czestochowa, Jaroslaw, Kalisz,
Katowice, Krakow, Lodz, Lublin, Lwow, Nowy Sacz, Pultusk,
Radom, Rozwadow, Rzeszow, Sanok, Tarnobrzeg, Tarnopol,
Tarnow, Tomaszow Lub, Warszawa, Wilno, Wyszkow, Zamosc

If you are interested in seeing details on these refugees, the
Czestochowa-Radomsko Area Research Group has typed and indexed this entire
list. The most commonly occurring surnames appear below my name and
signature. This CRARG web site will allow you to search more than 1/4
