If you're considering a visit to your ancestral town this spring, summer or
fall, and will also be visiting the local cemetery, please consider taking
photos of the remaining headstones for submission to JewishGen's JOWBR
database. As you know, JewishGen's goal is to preserve genealogical
information for future generations and virtually preserving headstones,
especially if they include Hebrew patronymic names, is incredibly valuable
to researchers.

Please check our current Cemetery Inventory at
https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/ to see if we already have any
data or photos for a particular cemetery and the date the last update was
done.no point duplicating work. Information on making submissions can be
found at https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Submit.htm
We request that submissions include complete, or near complete cemeteries,
not just family stones.

If you have any questions, please contact me at mailto:NAltman@jewishgen.org

Need help with addresses in Budapest during ww2 #hungary

Susanna Vendel
 

I have two questions:

1 - On a postcard written by my mother in 1944-11-21 to my father (not
married than) is her address V. Pozsonyi u. 20 v. 2 (it looks like
2). The current street finder gives 4 possiblities:

XV. ker. Pozsony utca 20.
XVIII. ker. Pozsony utca 20.
XX. ker. Pozsony utca 20.
XIII. ker. Pozsonyi ut 20

Which of them is the right address?

2 â?? On the same postcard is my fatherâ??s address

KMSZ 710/310 (correctly should be 701/301) on Hungaria krt 170-172.

According to my father's notes, the forced labor camp was hosted in a
school building. On the other side of the courtyard's wall was a
Catholic monastery of nuns. My father saved his life by jumping over
the wall to the monastery and was hidden and rescued by the nuns.

My question is: are the Catholic monastery and the school still there
at this address?

I've posted a vital record in Polish for which I need a translation.
It is on ViewMate at the following address
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM66699
Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.
Thank you very much.

Where is the town Kram. Ludowski? #lithuania

Shosh Kalson <shoshkalson@...>
 

We have found the marriage record for one of my husband's ancestors.
Recorded in Wladyslawow in 1811 (thank you Landsmen). According to the
extracted index, he was born in Kram. Ludowski.

We've googled as well as checked the JewishGen town finder. We've also
checked "Where Once Walked."

Does anybody have any ideas?

Thanks,

Shoshana Kalson

Personal research in the LVIA #lithuania

Shosh Kalson <shoshkalson@...>
 

Hi,

I am working on a number of surnames connected to my husband's family in
Lithuania and have compiled a list of many (hundreds) birth, death and
marriage records in which I am interested. Some are available online
(free) but many have not been filmed and are available only via the
archives.

In the past, I have ordered records >from the archives, but that can get
pretty expensive. I'm starting to think that it might make more sense to
go to Vinius and retrieve them myself.

Has anybody else gone and done direct research in the archives? What was
your experience?

Thanks,
Shoshana Kalson

MODERATOR'S NOTE: Most Lithuanian Jewish vital records have been
translated by LitvakSIG, with full translations available either
on the All Lithuania Database or on the sites of LitvakSIG's
District Research Groups.

Ukraine town Latnowetz? #general

David Goldman
 

Greetings. I was looking over my great-grandparents record of naturalization
in Canada in 1921 and their application stated that they were >from "Latnowetz,
Kaminetz Podolsk" in "Russia." However I now know they originated in Zinkovetz and
Butsnevtsy. However, I have no idea what Latnowetz refers to, why they would have
written that name, or whether Canadian immigration would have made a mistake.
