German Emigrant Database, Historic Museum of Bremerhaven #general

Hi Genners,
Has anyone used the service provided by the Historic Museum of
Bremerhaven? I found it on the Internet this evening. Apparently, it
has a database of emigrants who left through Bremerhaven >from 1850-
1888,Jan-March of 1904 and Feb-April of 1907. You can search the records
at the museum yourself, or request a search for a fee. Before I send away
for the search I wanted to get feedback >from anyone who may have used this
service. Thank you.

Belarus SIG Research Coordinator - Mike Meshenberg #belarus

David M. Fox <fox@...>
 

Dear SIG Members,

I am very pleased to announce that Mike Meshenberg has agreed to assume
the position of Belarus SIG Research Coordinator. Mike is currently the
coordinator of the Nesvizh Shtetl Research Group and is a former member
of the board of the Grodno Gubernia Research Group. Mike brings to the SIG
a vast array of genealogical, organizational, and interpersonal skills
that will help the Belarus SIG achieve greater successes in the years
ahead. Elsebeth, Edward, and I welcome Mike to his new leadership role
with the SIG and look forward to working with him as we expand the All
Belarus Database.

I would like to thank Risa Heywood for her tremendous contributions to
the SIG. Risa was our first webmaster and gave us a presence on the
web. This past year she was a great help in keeping the different
research projects moving forward and in negotiating the purchase of the
Minsk gubernia Duma (voter) lists. In addition, Risa was always there
to assist me as the co-cordinator. Risa has decided for personal
reasons to take a less active roll in the SIG and devote more of her
time to the East European Jewish Heritage Project (USA), a new 501 (c)
(3) organization (IRS approval applied for) that is dedicated to
provided humanitarian aid to Jews in Belarus and in preserving and
protecting Jewish sites in Belarus. We wish Risa great success in her
new endeavors and am sure that she will continue to contribute to the
Belarus SIG as her time permits. Thank you Risa for all that you have
done to make the SIG what it is today.

Will all of you who are currently working on research projects please
contact Mike and introduce yourselves and provide him with a status on
the projects you are working on. Part of Mike's duties will involve
providing standards for the extraction and data entry of information to
all the research project leaders. He will also be monitoring progress of
the various projects and coordinating the JewishGen process for
submitting databases for inclusion in the All Belarus Database. As
such, he will be working closely with Warren Blatt and Michael Tobias of
the JewishGen staff who are responsible for database structure on
JewishGen.

If you have ideas about new projects or projects now in the works,
please contact Mike at <mjmeshenberg@...>.

Welcome aboard Mike and thanks for taking on this challenging position.

Dave


Message >from Mike Meshenberg,

As an original member of the Belarus SIG, I have been greatly impressed
with the progress that has been made in its two years. The vast and growing
array of resources on the website have been of great benefit to Belarus
researchers, and a testament to its cooperative spirit. I hope to continue
to work with those who are providing new data for the All Belarus Database,
to further the standardization that will ensure the quality and ease of use
of the data and, over the longer term, to help open up new sources of data
now not readily available to us.

I am delighted to work with Dave, whom I have known and respected for
years, and with Edward and Elsebeth, whom I met for the first time in Salt
Lake City and who extended to me such a warm welcome. I also thank Risa for
all the time she spent briefing me in Salt Lake City and for her continued
support.

It will take a bit of time for me to get a feel for all the work underway.
Please bear with me through the learning period.

Eight ancestral lines of R'Y.Y.WAHRMAN #general

IsraelP <zach4v6@...>
 

Rav Yaakov Yitzhak WAHRMAN - originally of Iasi and later
of Tel-Aviv - published an edition of Daat Kedoshim in 1959.
(The original was written by his great-grandfather Rav
Avraham David of Buczacz.) In this 1959 edition, Rav Wahrman
includes a chart of eight of his ancestral lines, with
three to six generations in each line.

A translation of this chart (with permission of his daughter)
is available at
http://www.geocities.com/pikholz/families/wahrman.htm

The primogenitors of the eight lines are R' Avraham David
of Buczacz, R' Aryeh Leib of Voloczysk, R' Meshullam Feivish
HELLER of Zbarazh, R' Meir HaGadol of Przemyslany, R' Pinchas
of Koretz, R' Nahum of Chernobyl, R' Chaim of Krasni and
R' Levi Yitzhak of Berdichev. There are additional references
to the Maharsha, the Rema, the Bakh, the Shela, Rav Shaul Wohl,
Rashi (whose yahrzeit is today, 29 Tammuz), King David and
others.

His wife was a Pickholz >from Rozdol, but unfortunately he
didn't provide us a look at her family history.

You are invited to have a look. Thanks to Allen Bergman for
bringing this to my attention.

KAROLITSKI in Paris #general

Micheline GUTMANN <MichelineGUTMANN@...>
 

A few months ago, somebody asked me for a research
of the name KAROLITSKI in Paris . I could not find.
But to-day, I was looking for somebody else and I met that name.

As I receive so many messages and demands, I cannot remember
who asked for this one.

I take the opportunity to say to some beginners : be always patient,
if we cannot find the same day you ask, we can find later, sometimes
after years !

Lithuania SIG #Lithuania DNA Matching #lithuania

Mike Berger <smberg@...>
 

I recently asked a biomedical researcher if DNA matching could or was being used in genealogical research. He said it certainly could be but that it was a bit expensive.

My family comes >from Kupiskis (our "wing" of the BIRGER family is traced
so far to about 1775). But by the late 1800s there were several BIRGER families in Kupiskis who may or may not have been related. There are BERGER (common modern spelling) families in South Africa, for example, who may or may not be relatives, and others in Israel who almost certainly are. DNA matching would likely confirm (or deny the relationships. Has anyone attempted to identify relatives through this method?

Attention KULKA researchers #general

NFatouros@...
 

Late last night, I sent an email to all the people I found in the Family
Finder and in the Discussion group archives who were interested in the
KULKA surname. The contents of my email were of rather urgent importance
as they concerned a Holocaust document written by a Theresienstadt inmate
Jan KULKA, which is being offered for sale by a certain book dealer in
whom I have no interest except as a satisfied customer. But a number of
the email addresses bounced because I didn't check to see whether the
addresses were current.

If any KULKA genealogists are curious about the full contents of my failed
message, they should write to:
