JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: JRI-Poland Adds Galician Record Indices to the Online Database #general

Bonnie Birns
 

I want to send a tremendous thank you to Mark Halpern and JRI-Poland for their
latest records update.

My grandfather, Sidney (Shmuel) Bernstein was born in Podkamien, Galicia. As
his parents were first cousins, this whole branch of my family is >from this
town. For the last 20 years, I have been told that there were no records that
exist >from this town.

Thanks to the latest update, I have finally seen a record that proves that the
BERNSTEINs and BARERs were >from Podkamien. I can't tell you how emotional I
got, to finally have some real proof that Podkamien is my ancestral homeland.

I can't wait to get to Cleveland and learn more!

Thank you so much,

Romania SIG #Romania WOLFSON, FAVELOVICH in Iasi #romania

Ann Dery <ann_dery@...>
 

I have been trying to locate my grandfather's parents and their history.
I believe my grandfather's parents were placed in a sanitarium early
1900's probably in Iasi, where they were from. My great grandmother's
name was Henrietta WOLFSON born FAVELOVICH. Her husband was Maurice
WOLFSON. My grandfather was Elieser Israel WOLFSON, her husband.

Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Re: Plaque found in Vilna's Great Synagogue #lithuania

Danielle Weiner
 

Jan,

Thank you for news of the plaque that was found in the cellar of the
Great Synagogue that details trips of Vilna residents to the Holy
Land. I have been following the progress of this excavation for a
while now.

Is there any way of getting a transcription of the information on this
plaque at this point. If not, maybe a photo of the plaque itself?

Thank you,
