familiar to somebody ? I plan also a trip to Vienna and Kornenburg in a a
couple of weeks and I am looking for contacts and information about the
search possibilities there.

My comment:

If you go the the Internet address

www.doew.at

(i.e. Dokumentationsarchiv des oesterreichischen Widerstands =
documentation archive of the Austrian resistance)

and click on "name registration" on the right column, you will be able
to find an entry for

Alfred FLEISCHER, born 29 Jul 1883, who was deported >from Vienna on 02
Jun 1942 and killed in Maly Trostinec.

The CD published by the DOEW also provides a last address in Vienna:
Dorotheergasse 6, ap. 29 in the first district of Vienna.

With this information you can also get the registration information >from
the Vienna City Archives (see the information on "Meldezettel" in the
JewishGen files). Also the Vienna Kultusgemeinde may have further data.

The birth place you mention contains one mistake: It is Korneub_u_rg,
i.e. the second "n" is a "u", easily mistaken in handwriting.

There are further entries for FLEISCHER.

I wish you success in your research,

with kind regards

marriages in the 19C #general

cecilia <myths@...>
 

Would it have been possible for a Reform rabbi >from Frankfurt to come
to London in 1855 and conduct the marriage of his grand-daughter to a
(gentile) Englishman without it being recorded as a legal ceremony?
(I have read that mixed marriages occurred in certain parts of Germany
around that time, a few even recorded at synagogues.)

Celebrate ViewMate 3rd anniversary #general

Bernard Kouchel <koosh@...>
 

We are delighted to report that today, November 2, is the third anniversary
of the inauguration of JewishGen's ViewMate. In that time period, over
3,000 images have been uploaded for analysis. We hope that there also
have been 3,000 responses that have assisted researchers in gathering the
facts, the documents and the pictures that aided them to understand their
heritage, and helped them to reconnect with family members.

ViewMate: Where researchers can post scanned images of photos and documents
and ask other researchers to help them translate or analyze the contents.

See the easy to follow instructions at
< http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate >.

We extend special thanks to the JewishGen volunteers who make it all
possible.

R. Yosef RAPOPORT of Stary Sambor #rabbinic

Logan J. Kleinwaks <kleinwks@...>
 

Looking for information about Rabbi Yosef HaKohen RAPOPORT of Stary
Sambor, who corresponded with the Divrei Chaim in 1851, and was then
Rosh Beit Din. In Divrei Chaim, he is called a relative (so I am
told, as I cannot read Hebrew). I am trying to determine if he is
related to Rabbi David HaKohen KALTER, who was Dayan and Moreh
Tzedek in Stary Sambor for 70 years, and was alive at least from
1857-1886. Perhaps David KALTER succeeded Yosef RAPOPORT? If you
know of him or of RAPOPORTs >from the Stary Sambor area in general,
please let me know.

Thanks very much and best regards,

Re: Genealogy Etiquette #general

Sally M. Bruckheimer <sallybru@...>
 

It happens all the time. You find a lead, someone who looks like a
relative (with an unusual name, for example). Offer lots of your family
information and promise more! "My grandmother was XYZ and she came >from
Someplace, Ukraine in 18XY, I am looking for anyone with the same surname,
blah, blah, blah."

I have made contact with many such relatives, some >from internet searches,
some >from phone books in the pre-internet days. Sometimes you don't get
any answer, but usually you get a new relative.

Captured German WW II aerial photographs of Brody #galicia

janmallen@...
 

The Brody (Ukraine) Yizkor Book website hosted by JewishGen has added some
photographs to the site. The photographs were obtained >from Records
Administration
(NARA) cartographic collection of the Defense Intelligence Agency Record 373
of Captured German World War II photographs. I learned about this phenomenal
find at the IAJGS meeting this July. I was
able to obtain aerial photographs for each of my 4 shtetls and for one
(Sochaczew, Poland) they
had still photographs taken the day the Nazis invaded and took over the
town. There were no stills, however, for Brody.

We have posted two of the aerials -one with arrows and a legend depicting
the important
landmarks and one with no "enhancements". It is placed next to a map of
Brody so the reader can make their own identifications of landmarks. The
numbers on the arrows/legend correlate with the numbers >from the map of
Brody Yizkor Book.

You can double click on the photographs to make them larger. The
photograph will move to the left. In the upper left an icon appears which
lets you save, print, e-mail, file. Sometimes it takes a while for the icon
on the lower right to appear (a yellow box with arrows) - that is what you
click again on to enlarge.

The map and photos are at the very end of the table of
contents on the Brody Yizkor Book website.

disseminating information about the Holocaust and destroyed Jewish
communities by unlocking the valuable information contained in yizkor
books so that genealogists and others can learn more about their
heritage.

Recognition is due to two individuals in particular who have taken it
upon themselves to donate translated chapters >from the Hungarian and
Latvian volumes of the Pinkas HaKehillot, proving that one individual
can make a real difference. So far we have online 18 chapters >from
the Hungarian volume submitted by Francine Shapiro and 5 >from the
