Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Dachau Concentration Camp Records #lithuania

Marj Green <marjgreen@...>
 

The first posting of the Dachau Concentration Camps is a wonderful addition
to the Holocaust database. I found 6 of my Gruzin relatives (in the records
as Grusin).

There were 2 abbreviations used in the database that were not in the
glossary -- Sch. J. Lit and Befr. Kauf. So I emailed Peter Lande. In case
this might be of held to anyone else in Litvak SIG, here is what he
responded:

Sch. J. Lit. is indeed a Lithuanian Jew. Sch was an abbreviation for
Schutzhaeftling--literally a protected prisoner--but really simply a
prisoner.

befr. Kauf--befr is befreit or liberated--i.e. survivor. My guess is that
Kauf probably reads Krgf or Kreigsgefangene--prisoner of war. Not Jewish orat least not identified as such.

Re: location of Bouchara 1941 #general

Bukhara is located in central Asia, it is now in Uzbekistan. The
emirate of Bokhara was a powerful state in that area until the Bolshevik
revolution.

One possibility is to try the spelling *Bukhara*. It is an area in southern
Uzbekistan. For more details, see the Encyclopedia Judaica, vol. 4 "B",
pgs. 1470-1476.

Hello- I have submitted a search with the Red Cross for our grandparents

Zbauzin, then Sibyria,& were last heard >from in Bouchara in 1941. The Red

JRI Poland #Poland FREEDMAN FAMILY FROM WARSAW #poland

danielle freedman <daniellefreedman640@...>
 

Dear Group,

Please can you help me. After receiving my G Grandfather MORRIS FREEDMAN
born 1874 natralisation record for WARSAW Poland, it was not specific enough
to state a shtetl or village subsiduary of WARSAW.

His father and mothers names were JACOB & JANE and >from what i gather >from
my family members, MORRIS had 2 sisters and 2 brothers (DAVID & JOSEPH).
On the JRI Poland data base there are over 200 pages of FREEDMAN Family's.
None of which correspondeds to my information. Does that mean my family has
not been entered onto the database yet? I am about to write to the Warsaw
archives but does anybody have any further suggestions. As it seems that
there is too much information on Freedman familys on JRI Poland?
