Hi Sandy: If you have the time and the patience, perhaps you could pull
together a general report for JewishGen on what you found in those towns
this summer. There must be hundreds - thousands - of us who are interested.
In particular, I'd like to know about Grodno and Kiev.
Many thanks for your offer! Carol Raspler, Delray Beach, FL

WEISER (maybe Dallas TX) who wrote a book about Auschwitz #general

IsraelP <zach4v6@...>
 

On Friday, I learned that a Pickholz granddaughter named Ginta
WEISER wrote a book about her experiences in Auschwitz. If she is
living, she would probably be about eighty-five. My source thinks
she lives in Dallas Texas and doesn't know her husband's name. I
assume that Ginta is a nickname.

Can anyone out there give me a hand in locating this woman or her
family? Either in Dallas (where I have found twenty-five Weiser
listings, none of which means anything to me) or via the book?
(Yes I know I can go to a library to inquire about the book, but that
may take several weeks and maybe someone has easy access to
this information.)

Thank you.

A friend of mine is interested in getting his father's birth certificate.
His father was born 2/01/03 which makes the certificate less than 100 years
old. His father was born in Michalovce, then Nagymihaly.
Where can he write?

Galati, Romania #hungary

DGoldman <dgoldman@...>
 

The Romanian Special Interest Group has a sub-group interested in Galati. They have hired someone to do research there--with mixed results. A member of the Galati group spent part of the summer in Romania and has some documents recording community subscriptions supporting the local hospital. Let me know if you would like to contact
that person.

I need to know where to look for my grandparents origins. They lived in Galati Romania where my father and his siblings were born. However all the birth records state that my grandparents were under the protection Of Austria Hungary and that they are either >from BudaPest? or a town called "Ghimis?" in Austria. Which country's archives
do I search. And how can I get started. Ghimis is not on any map, all recent Atlas' do not show such a town. Possibly an ancient name that has been lost. I need some suggestions. Gert Lord Yellow Springs Ohio


Success with Czech archive #hungary

Tomer Brunner <tomerbr@...>
 

Dear H-Siggers,
I would like to share my experience of writing
to the Czech war archive.
I wrote for information about a my grandfather's cousin,
Albert ELOVIC (ELOVICS), who was an officer during WWII,
and fought in the Czech Brigade of general Svoboda.
As far as I know, he was one of the most decorated soldiers
in the Czech army and got 36 medals, including the "Red Star"
decoration, which was given to him by Stalin.

I got a reply fo 1.5 pages in Czech with info like date and
place of birth, name of parents and military info. like ranks,
date when the ranks were given, the same info with some medals.
name of a battle where he took part and info about his post
in UNRRA after the war.

Although I wrote to the archives that he was in the army
even before WWII, I didn't get info >from that period.

The reply letter was sent to me by VOJENSKY USTREDNI ARCHIV, Praha
and no address was given (at least as I can see) - so that
make me a little confused as for where I had send my letter.
Anyway I think I wrote to:

Historicky Ustav Armady Ceske Republiky
U Pamatniku 2,
05-130 Praha 3,
CZECH REPUBLIC.


Hope it helps,
Tomer Brunner, Israel.

Where is BAWING? #hungary

Tomer Brunner <tomerbr@...>
 

Dear H-Siggers,
Looking at an old book about rabbi David Oppenheimer,
I see that the author, my grandmother's uncle, wrote
some words about his father, my gg-grandfather.

The information include the name of my gggg-grandmother,
who was >from the ADLER family.
Her place of residence is given too, but since its in Hebrew
I can't know what the correct spelling is (in English).
In Hebrew it looks like - BAWING. (or BOVING)
The Hebrew letters are : BET, ALEF, VAV, YUD, NUN, GIMEL.
Note that the ALEF has 2 dotes above it !!!so eventhough there isn't
such a letter in Hebrew it seems like it should be a variant
of the German letter A" (A with .. above it).
The book was written in the early 1900's and the name of place
was probably in use at THAT time.
Any ideas?

Thanks,
Tomer Brunner, Israel.

Mogilev Birth Index #belarus

Adarelanab@...
 

Roman Vilner requested help in looking at one of the Mogilev Birth Index
films. The easiest way to do that is to go to the nearest Family History
Center at a Church of the Latter Day Saints (Mormon Church). These centers
are located all over the US in Mormon Churches - look in the phone book. For
a small fee ($3-4) they will get any film >from Salt Lake City. This takes
about 2 weeks, and you have access to the film for 1-2 months. They will
have readers and printers that you can use, and I have found them to be most
gracious and helpful.
