Lodz Area Research Group #Lodz #Poland ViewMate translation request - Polish and German #lodz #poland

Diane Sophrin
 

Hello all,
I've just posted four items on ViewMate.

These are four postcards sent >from the Lodz and Warsaw ghettos in 1940
and 1941. They were written to my grandparents Henry (SZCZECINSKI) and
Mary (GREENBAUM) VAN FELIX, and also to Henry's brother Maurice
(SZCZECINSKI) VAN FELIX, all living in Brooklyn, New York at that time.

I already have a sense that there is a lot of information conveyed in
these four postcards about the whereabouts of different relatives and
the conditions they were living under in the ghetto. I'd appreciate as
direct and precise a translation as possible, including names and data
given. This is important information and will greatly help me in further
understanding the fate of my grandfather's family.

Two postcards are written in Polish:

Two postcards are written in German:

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application. I find
it helpful to have initial responses saved and visible on ViewMate.

I thank you all in advance for any and all help offered.

The recent uploading of Post Office Savings Bank records for Linkuva
and Krekinova have given me a lot of new information.

Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Dubossary New Cemetery and Tiraspol Cemetery #ukraine

Yefim Kogan
 

To Bessarabian and Ukrainian researchers,

We are finishing indexing/photographing two cemeteries in Moldova:
Tiraspol Cemetery and New Section in Dubossary Cemetery. Both towns were
part of Kherson Gubernia before 1917, and now part of Republic of Moldova (a
self-proclaimed territory Pridnestrovskaya Moldavian Republic). For
Dubossary we did only New Section of the cemetery where people were buried
from late 1940s to current time. The Old Section will follow by the end of
2014.

I have so many photos taken by photographers which I could not submit to
JewishGen (only one photo per record), that I decided to get it to you
differently... You may know that at the monuments at Jewish cemeteries in
the former Soviet Union people put photos in frames or photos in stone of
the diseased...

Just for $50 donation to "Bessarabia/Moldova Cemetery Project" I will send
you up to three record(s) with the photo I sent to JewishGen, plus all
"duplicate" photos for these three record, if I have them. Of course, if
you have already donated money for Tiraspol (Tiraspol Cemetery), or/and for
Dubossary (Bessarabia-Moldova Cemetery), I will send you these information
too.

Please let me know after you donated to the funds and send me personally up to
three names you are interested in (also what cemetery I should look at).

Here are the other cemeteries where the work is in progress:
-Kishinev-Doyna Cemetery;
-Lipkani Cemetery.

Plans to start in 2014:
-Kishinev Jewish Cemetery;
-Tiraspol (second) cemetery;
-Brichani cemetery;
-several small cemeteries in the south of current Moldova.

Thank you to all,

"duplicate" photos for these three record, if I have them. Of course, if
you have already donated money for Tiraspol (Tiraspol Cemetery), or/and for
Dubossary (Bessarabia-Moldova Cemetery), I will send you these information
too.

Please let me know after you donated to the funds and send me personally up to
three names you are interested in (also what cemetery I should look at).

Here are the other cemeteries where the work is in progress:
-Kishinev-Doyna Cemetery;
-Lipkani Cemetery.

Plans to start in 2014:
-Kishinev Jewish Cemetery;
-Tiraspol (second) cemetery;
-Brichani cemetery;
-several small cemeteries in the south of current Moldova.

Thank you to all,

Stay tuned for a complete line-up of speakers and topics beginning at 7
AM on Thursday, July 31 and continuing through lunch, including of
course the two talks by Eric Goldman, our official Ukraine SIG speaker.
Speaking of whom, don't forget to sign up for the Ukraine SIG lunch on
July 31.

Many of us are planning to go to Salt Lake City for the conference -
some are even planning to arrive early or stay late - here's how you can
help if you will be in Salt Lake City before or after the conference.
As you are undoubtedly aware, the SIG embarked on a project of huge
scope - scanning the microfilms held by the Family History Center that
pertain to Jews in the territory covered by Ukraine SIG. There are over
400 reels of microfilm for vital records and revision/censuses. We have
been tackling the 220 vital records films first but progress is slow.
If you think you will have some time that you can spend volunteering to
scan microfilm while you are in Salt Lake City, please let me or Harvey
Kabaker know.

See you in Salt Lake!
Janette

Hi Everyone,

My Grandmother's name was Esther. In my research, I have found some of her
siblings birth records, but not hers. One of her siblings had the first
name, Sosa. What would the Americanized name possibilities be for Sosa? I
guess I'm trying to figure out if that could be her? Thanks for your help.

Dear Rosanne, y

Yes, we all missing Bob Wascou at Bessarabia SIG too.

I know that Bob was finishing all Bessarabia Vital records Project. He told
us at Bessarabia SIG meeting in Boston that he has some sets of records
left.

I would like you to pass to me and to our group all information about
Bessarabia Vital records Project what was left to do.
Bob did a great job at this project, and our Bessarabia SIG can finish it
properly. We are very much grateful to Bob Wascou and to Rom SIG for all
you are doing for Bessarabia.

We would like to know what sets of records are in progress and what sets
remains to be translated.

Thank you very much,

Dear All,

As you know we are very much missing Bob Wascou's experienced hand in
matters dealing with the materials we are receiving >from our Romanian
researchers, and the creation of the databases, etc.

We are seeking a person, or persons, who have some experience in dealing
with databases, and administrative skills, to work with our great and
willing volunteers, etc.

Without this kind of help our ability to acquire, create the databases with
data that so many of us have been waiting for, and get them up on JewishGen,
is going to come to an end. I am sure that none of you would be happy about
that!.........
Please contact me for further information if you are interested. We now have
over 2200 members of the Rom-SIG. Surely there must be some among you who
care enough, and would be able to step up to the plate to help!........

I have four booklets in my possession regarding the Bulgarian Jews
who moved to Israel and established the community of Hartuv in 1895.
The booklet appears to be a translation of an original in Hebrew.
The pioneering families were named LEVI, GIRON, BEN-BASSAT, GARTI,
BEN-AROVA, COHEN, TZARFATI, BECHAR AND RUBISSA.

If you are interested in the above names >from Bulgaria or are related
to these families, I will be glad to mail you the booklet. There are
quite a few photos included.

If any JGS Society would like one, please feel free to e-mail me.
