In the near future we will have built a phylogenic tree, and or

matches you deviations form the Standard.

Miriam Margolys,
Thank you for pointing out my missing address. However it is the
Epstein Family that I am looking for and not the Bermans, as John Berman does
not have it. So if anyone else who can lead me to that family, I would be most
grateful.
Miriam, I have a great deal of information on the Gillis family which
originated >from Kretinga, Lithuania

Searcing For Info #southafrica

Sisitsky@...
 

I am searching for info. on the family names - SESITSKY (SISITSKY) and BIRK.
The names I have are Eugenia (Bertha?) Sisitsky and her husband John D. Birk.
She was born in Janova, Lithuania in 1883 and he was born in 1879. They
were married in 1904 and had two children, Nicholas Birk and Marjorie Birk.

I have two letters >from John Birk - 1st is dated Oct. 3, 1928 and gives his
address as 28 Loch Ave., Parktown West, Johannesburg while the 2nd is dated
Aug. 29, 1933 and lists him as the proprietor of the Clairmont Hotel, P.O.
Box 2, Clairwood, Natal, Phone 24 Rossburg.

He also states that "we lost our dear mother on the 23rd of September, 1928.
I'm not sure if this would be his mother or his wife's mother who would be
named Sisitsky.

I would appreciate any assistance.

Thank you,

Re: Lida & Holocaust death #belarus

Irene Newhouse <newhoir@...>
 

When the Einsatzgruppen started their horror in Vilnius, smaller towns
like Lida were much safer places, as the Nazis hadn't started mass
murders there yet. In fact, a group of about 800 Jews
from Vilnius sought refuge there [perhaps because of family connections:
for instance, my grandfather, who ultimately moved to Warsaw, was born in
Lida, but my grandmother was >from Vilnius]. The Lida Judenrat got them
fake papers to allow them to blend into the background. All of them were
betrayed to the Nazis by a few Jews arrested for a robbery & most were
killed, including members of the Judenrat.

Some of this story is included in the indictment for war crimes against
Windisch & Werner. The translation can be found at

Re: Lithuanian State Historical Archives1 #general

I have always sent a personal check, which they appear to have cashed with
no problem. As to turnaround time, I think it took about 9 months for them
to respond to my first request, which was about 4-5 years ago. More
recently, turnaround has been about 2 months or less but I don't know if
this is because of a difference in initial response versus follow-up
communications.

Also, can anyone give some indication of recent turnaround time?

Re: Social Security Records #general

Three months. I sent away for three SS-5's in September and received
them in December. I paid with one check ($21) and submitted one letter
with all three names. One SS-5 was handwritten by my greatuncle, but
the other two were computer printouts that were missing key information
(father's name, mother's maiden name, etc.). I was thrilled, but also
somewhat disappointed. Hope this helps.
