Josef Willner #poland

moshe fink <mosfink@...>
 

I'm trying to learn the history of Josef Willner, born in Potok Zlote
Galicia in 1884, who might be a relative of my grandfather Avraham
Jechiel Willner, also >from Potok Zlote. Josef came to the U.S. in
Feb.14 1910, on the ship Main. >from the ship manifest I have learned
that his wife, Regina, remained in Galicia, I have no idea if she ever
joined her husband, nor do I know if they had any children. Is there
someone who knows something about this Josef Willner, I'm interested
mainly in his ancestors >from Potok Zlote.

Latest Issue of Success! Stories is Posted on JewishGen #lodz #poland

We're pleased to announce the publication of the latest issue of
JewishGen's Success! Stories webzine. You can access these stories
from the "About Us" button on our homepage or by following this link:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen/Testimonials/.

Meredith Hoffman and Nancy Siegel have worked with the authors to edit
these stories of ancestor and family connections made through JewishGen --
the kinds of success stories we regularly read about on the JewishGen
mailing lists and discussion groups. This issue highlights the
international scope of JewishGen with contributors >from the UK, Poland,
Brazil, Canada, and the US.

Martin Cahn traced one line of his family back six generations, discovered
the synagogue built in 1836 due to the efforts of his great-great-great-
great-grandfather and, as a guest of honor, attended the ceremony
celebrating the renovation of the synagogue building.

Eliana Aizim learned the identity of family members in an old photo by
posting it on ViewMate, followed these leads through the JewishGen
Family Finder to find the grandson of her great-aunt pictured in the
photo, and then traveled to Israel for a joyful meeting with this newly
discovered branch of the family.

Karen Sanders found the names of her maternal great-grandparents on the
JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry - Austria, received >from an
Austrian JewishGenner a photo of the tombstone that answered some
questions and posed new mysteries, and followed the trail that
ultimately revealed her family's origins and a previously unknown
living family member who had survived the war in a Siberian prison camp.

Debbie Rose posted her success story to the JewishGen Discussion Group
just last month. With the help of many Israeli JewishGenners, she found
a living cousin in Israel, 65 years after her family lost all contact
with the part of the family that remained in Ukraine. We republish her
account in Heard on the Lists.

We're sure you'll be inspired by these stories and we encourage you to
send Meredith and Nancy your own success stories for possible future
publication (their email address is success@lyris.jewishgen.org).

Searching for Dubow/Dubovsky family in South Africa #lithuania

Note: This posting is being made on behalf of someone who does not have
access to e-mail.If anyone can provide help to Sylvan, please write me
privately and I will get word to him.

---------------------------------------

Searching for Dubow/Dubovsky family in South Africa

I am now 88 years of age but when I was young living in Baltimore,
Maryland, my father, Theodore Dubovsky (Tevya) and his brothers Max (Mendel)
and Morris (Moshe) often discussed members of their family >from Kovarsk,
Vilkomir, Anikst, Kovno, and Wilna, Lithuania.

One in particular whom they mentioned was a cousin who migrated to South
Africa and settled in Bloemfontein. If they ever mentioned his name, I
have forgotten what it was.

Anyway, after I retired >from the Military Archives Division of the National
Archives and Records Administration (NARA) in 1987, I began a genealogical
research project on the Dubows and Dobuvskys of Baltimore. More recently
I attempted a search for records of those who had remained in Europe -
without success - as well as the cousin who went to South Africa. I made
contact with some people with this surname in South Africa but was never
able to establish a relationship between us.

Can anyone assist me in identifying this cousin?

Thank you=

Re: The Only Jewish Military Cemetery Outside of Israel #general

h snillop <snilloph@...>
 

As a minor footnote to this interesting message.

In the First World War several war cemeteries of the British & Commonwealth Forces
had special sections for fallen Jewish soldiers. However, most Jews who died were
buried in general cemeteries, scattered among non-Jews.

I wrote about this in the Bulletin of the Military Historical Society, vol. 56 no.
221, August 2005, pages 7-10. It is not online.

This question and its answer may interest some other persons here,
this is why I'm sending it publicly. The DVD entitled "La Rafle" will
be available in French next 7 Septembre, as you can read it on the
website of "Amazon". I don't know if there will be a subtitled version.
If I can obtain this information, I'll come back here to inform you.
