I have just received the Aliyah Passports of my cousin, Zygmunt Dimant
and his wife Anna. Unfortunately, I don't read or speak Polish. Is
there a kind soul who would translate the left side of the image,
questions and answers?
Below is the direct link to both images.

Re: I am requesting Help #poland

Palekaiko
 

Earlier today I posted a request for help in locating Mania Nadel.
The Moderator on Duty Gesher Galicia Mailing List pointed out that the
Page of Testimony written by Mania Nadel was for a different Regina
Dimant. This Regina Dimant was born 1907, father Heinrich, mother
Tina). According to Zygmunt, his mother (Regina Dimant) was born in
1887 to Moshe and Eva.

The moderator further points out that Mania Nadel lived in Haifa in
1955, when she wrote the POT. The Mania Nadel you found in the Social
Security Death Index lived in Brooklyn in 1955, according to her
naturalization index card on Ancestry.

Based on the above observations, I would like to respectfully withdraw
my request for help. I have to do more homework.

To all those who have responded, I truly appreciate the step-by-step
suggestions which you have offered. Despite my error in assuming I
was looking for the the right person, your responses have given me
much more, ie research tools.

Thanks.

VM 15095 - Lithuanian Translation #general

LEW & CARLA CHILTON
 

Dear Jewishgenners,

Can any of you read Lithuanian? I have acquired a 1925 property
owners street map (called a cadastral map, I believe) and house
dwellers/owners list for the Litvak shtetl Anyksciai (Aniksht, in Yiddish).
This information is invaluable for anyone with ancestors who lived in
or had ties to Anyksciai around 1925.

During the czarist era, Anyksciai was in Kovno guberniya, Ukmerge Uyezd.
In 1925, the recently formed independent Republic of Lithuania was
conducting house ownership surveys in all its cities, towns and
hamlets in order to assess taxes. I believe that is why this map and
list were originally created.

I have compared the names on the property owners list to those on a
number of searchable online databases at JewishGen, LitvakSig and
Yad Vashem (Pages of Testimony) and have made a high percentage of
correlations.

The map and list are accompanied by an important explanatory text in
Lithuanian, which I cannot read. That's where you come in.

If you have any proficiency in reading printed Lithuanian (it's typeset,
not handwritten), or know of someone who does, then please check out
the text on ViewMate, file no VM15095. It will remain on ViewMate
for about 7 days before it's archived.

Here's a direct link:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=15095

This street map and house owner' list could be an invaluable
resource for a great many Idlach with ties to Anyksciai.
Thanks in advance for your help!
