Aufbau Newspaper

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I would like to consult the copies of the newspaper Aufbau Newspaper which
was a German newspaper published in NEW YORK >from 1 September 1944 to 27
September 1946. This newspaper included lists of Jewish holocaust survivors in
Europe, some lists of victims and also announcements made by people looking for
family members who survived the second world war. I am looking for the
announcement of my maternal grandfather Mordko said Max KAMIENIECKI
born 22/10/1898 to BREST LITOWSK who made an advertisement in this newspaper
to find his cousin Eliezer said Leonard BOBROWSKI born on May 10, 1920 or
10/05 /1919 in SAMARA who was a Soviet prisoner in Oural as a deserter.
was repatriated in 1946 to Poland and came to France in 1947. Eliezer BOBROWSKI
was domiciled at the following address 30 rue du vieille du temple in PARIS and
left France for the United States in 1952 by the port of HAVRE

Do you trace your ancestry to "Posen"? #germany

Nicole Heymans
 

I am posting anew this message I posted in June. My laptop vanished in
a burglary a few weeks ago, and my mailboxes and address books are
unreadable, so please reply if interested even if you have already
done so. Also please note my new email address: nichey46@....

This message is to all researchers who have "Posen" (or Poznan) among
their ancestral dwellings. "Posen" may refer to Posen city or to
anywhere else in the region known over the centuries as the Grand
Duchy of Posen, Posen Province, or Wielkopolska.

Thanks to many volunteers, and also professional genealogists -
funded by your contributions to JRI-Poland - many Jewish records
from this region are already in JRI-Poland's growing database.
However, much still remains to be done.

Researchers with an interest in this region know of Madeleine
Okladek's long-time commitment to helping researchers with an
interest in towns in both the Poznan and Kalisz Archival areas. I
recently agreed to take over >from Madeleine as Poznan Archives
Coordinator for the main branch (PSA archive #53), where surviving
(mainly pre-1847) Jewish records are held. Madeleine remains Archive
Coordinator for the Konin and Pila sub branches of Poznan Archives
(#54), as well as the Kalisz Archives (#11) where many civil records
(post-1874) >from this region are held.

I am updating the database of "interested Poznan area researchers",
to help decide indexing priorities. So, if you have roots in this
region, please let me know your towns and time periods of interest.
Please also let me know if you have any records, lists or documents
to share about your ancestors' shtetl.

Please reply privately rather than to the list.

New data available from the Vilnius household registers project #poland

Russ Maurer
 

LitvakSIG is very pleased to announce that batch 3 of the Vilnius
household register project, 5000 lines, is now available to qualified
donors. To help you decide if this batch is relevant to you,
we provide a full surname-frequency list of over 2000 surnames on the
VHR home page,
https://www.litvaksig.org/research/special-projects/vilnius-household-registers
(short URL: https://tinyurl.com/yab5ojnv).

During the period between WWI and WWII, Vilnius and adjoining
areas (that today are within eastern Lithuania and western Belarus)
were under Polish control. In Vilnius, the Poland imposed its system
of household registration for population registration and mobility
control >from 1919 to 1940. More than 13,000 household registers
have survived. They contain a treasure trove of information about
people who lived in or visited Vilnius. Typical records may include
the first and last name, maiden name, names of the parents including
the mother's maiden name, marital status, nationality and religion,
place and date of birth (or age), place of previous residence, date of
arrival to the lodgings, date of leaving the lodgings and next destination.
We estimate that the collection, in all, contains several million entries,
perhaps a third of them for Jews.

Of particular note, because of the shifting national boundaries, the
Vilnius household registers (VHR) will be of interest to a wider
audience than one might imagine. There was no border between
Vilnius and the rest of interwar Poland. People flowed freely between
Vilnius and such other cities as Warsaw, Bialystok, Lodz, Lida, Disna,
Oshmiany, Minsk, and others. If your ancestors were anywhere in that
area between the wars, they could have stopped in Vilnius and made
an appearance in a household register.

Because this is a long-term project, we are releasing data 5,000 lines
at a time. The first batch was released during the IAJGS conference
in Warsaw in August. That batch is available free of charge, thanks
to a Rabbi Malcolm Stern grant awarded to the project. Batch 2 was
released a month ago. The data of each batch will be added to the
All-Lithuania database about 18 months after release, where it will
be searchable free of charge.

All necessary information about these data releases, including how to
become a qualified donor, can be found on our VHR home page
linked above. Any questions should be directed to me at

Romania SIG #Romania Yizkor-Books-In-Print Project announces the publication of its 76th title, The Memorial book of Roman Romania #romania

Joel Alpert
 

The Yizkor-Books-In-Print Project of JewishGen is proud to announce
the publication of its 76th title, The Jewish Community of Roman
(Roman, Romania)

This is a hard cover book, 11 inches by 8.5 inches with 180 pages.

This book is a translation of Obstea evreiasca&#259; din Romanin by Pincu
Pascal and published by Editura Hasefer, Bucures&#351;ti, Romania, 2001.

List price:$42.95 Available on Amazon for around $31 may have lower
prices elsewhere

For more information go to:
https://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip/YBIP_Roman.html

The Romanian city of Roman is situated in the northeastern part of the
country, at the confluence of the Moldova and Siret rivers, on the
great road of the Siret, which long ago connected the north of Moldova
with the Danube ports. The Jewish population in the city is believed
to date >from as early as the beginning of 15thcentury. It is believed
that a wooden synagogue existed in Roman at that time, on the same lot
where the Main Synagogue was standing later (in the 20th century). It
was but the first of what would become 18 synagogues serving a
population of more than 6,000 Jews by the beginning of the 1940s,
which along with a wide range of social, educational, and cultural
institutions was a measure of the vitality of the community.

In this scholarly volume, the rich portrait of the Jewish community in
Roman that was about to be annihilated is painted in meticulous
detail, covering every aspect of life over the centuries of its
existence.

Alternate names for the town are: Roman [Romanian], Romesmarkt
[German], Romanvasar [Hungarian], Romanvarasch

The Yizkor-Books-In-Print Project now has 76 titles available. To see

gift for a loved one or a belated Chanukah gift.

Type of Kloiz #general

R Jaffer
 

Dear religious scholars,

I am working to translate maps for Bessarabian towns into English. I
am trying to determine the type of kloiz that is spelled Kuf, zayin,
tsadi, vav.
The kloiz immediately before this one in the list is a Sadigura kloiz
which I know is a Hasidic dynasty kloiz. Therefore, I tend to think
that this word is not a surname. Any ideas?

Thank you,

Naming pattern amoung Ashkenazic Jews #general

Tsiporah Trom
 

I would like to know if anyone has heard of a specific order in the naming
pattern of Ashkenazic children. I once heard that the mother could chose
the name of the first child and the father the second, or vice versa.

Could someone confirm this please ?

That would be a great help in determining the order of the children, when
one doesn't have birth dates.
