JRI Poland #Poland (Poland) Polish Government Donates Equivalent of $28 Million TO Hel Restore Major Warsaw Jewish Cemetery #poland

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Polish government donated 100 million zlotys equivalent to $28 million
USD to restore and protect the Jewish Cemetery on Okopowa Street in Warsaw.
This is one of the largest government donations toward preserving the
Jewish culture which was virtually wiped-out during the Shoah.

The Okopowa Street Jewish Cemetery has 250,000 graves of Polish Jews. It
was established in 1806 and has many notables buried there. Many sections
of the cemetery have broken tombstones, and unreadable inscriptions. The
Cultural Heritage Foundation, which preserves Polish heritage sites, will
oversee the preservation work at the cemetery. The donation established an
endowment which is to cover cleaning the cemetery, preserving its tombstones
and monuments and reinforcing an outer wall.

Chava Agmon z"l #general

ingrid rockberger
 

IGRA and the Israeli genealogy community deeply mourn the death of Chava Agmon
(b. Eve Marie Nadelman). Known as the "Grande Dame" of Israeli genealogy, Chava was
involved in genealogy in Israel for over 30 years and was one of the founding and
most devoted members of JFRA (Jewish Family Research Association), one of the
forerunners of IGRA.

Chava was a feisty, feminist, no-nonsense character and attended meetings whenever
she could - even up to a few months ago.

When offered free membership as she entered her 90th year, she would not hear of it
and insisted on giving her membership money as a donation.

Chava was a descendant of R. Joseph Chaim Caro (1805-1895) of Wloclawek, Poznan,
Poland, and, after inheriting several family manuscripts, she spent many years
resesearching the family, and eventually donated her research to the Jacobi
collection at the National Library of Israel.

She was responsible for the addenda to the Chronicle of the Caro family written by
Jakob Caro in 1891.

For more about Chava Agmon: http://sefarad.org/lm/017/kara.html

May her memory be for a blessing.

Alsace-Lorraine researching grandfather #germany

Carolyn Allen <rjazz1@...>
 

Hi -- I am a new member

I would like to find a birth certificate for my grandfather, David John (or
Jacob) DORANZ or any information on the DORANZ family. I do not know in
what city in Alsace-Lorraine he was born. The family did identify as
German. David was born around 1854.

His father's name was Jacob DORANZ . However, when Jacob died in a nursing
home in New York City in 1911 it was spelled DORENS. It was spelled as
DORANZ on his tombstone. I think David DORANZ' mother was Ruth KRUEGER.

I have a lot more information but don't know if it is relevant.
Thank you very much in advance.

Re: Advice on heritage tours in Bialystok region? #poland

Tamara Edell Gottstein <tamama2e@...>
 

The Taube foundation specializes in this kind of thing so you might ask
them.

They also set up a genealogy center in the Jewish Historical Institute.
People there were every helpful to us when we were going to Bialystock and
Narewka with advice about where archives were and how to source information.

Good luck and please share what you find out.

I also want to get to the Lomza Gubernia region as well as Bialystock and
Narewka again. All in Northern Poland. I would love tips for a good guide
and also someone who can help access and translate information >from local
archives.
Thanks so much.

Dear all,

My name is Jade and I'm trying to plan a family trip to Poland to visit
Sokolka, the hometown of my great-grandmother. Does anyone have advice on
tour agencies that offer Jewish heritage tours? Any other tips or
suggestions for a visit to the region? Should we rent a car?
Should we take the train? Is it very necessary to have a guide (particularly
as we do not speak Polish, sad to say)?

Many thanks in advance for any advice!
