Re: why dont People Say thankyou #general

Barbara Nevens <bnevens@...>
 

I thank the person who started this thread as well as everyone who
has added to it. As I wrote in response to the original thread, I was
beyond miffed by an ingrate who, to make matters worse, turned out to
be a distant cousin. In my case, I was dealing with a young person
who was sufficiently computer literate to have found me in the first
place and then, after I took the time to make a number of hard copies
and snail mail them to her, never even sent a short note of thanks.
I'm a little more (but not much more!) tolerant of elderly people who
often just don't "get it". Bottom line, though, rudeness is rudeness
is rudeness. So now I feel better too!

When a passenger arriving at Ellis Island is held for Special
Inquiry and a decision is made by the inspector for admittance
to the U.S., there is a notation of a page where the immigrant

FW: Found an important manuscript #hungary

tom.vene@...
 

Dear friends,
I was pointed by a virtual friend to a very valuable document at the Simon
Wiesenthal Center's site. The address is:
<http://www.legalinformationmanagement.com/dbtw-wpd/textbase/swcdap/1993/199
3-143-001-01.pdf>
It contains 26 pages of a manuscript, seemingly made by the Presov (Eperjes)
Jewish community, recording 700 survivors who returned to that town after
being liberated >from the camps where they were inmates. This listing is very
comprehensive, it contains dates of birth, of internment in concentration
camps and of liberation, addresses and many other data (such as names of
dead and surviving relatives, and names of Jewish organizations to which
those persons belonged). For those who are searching relatives in Presov,
Kosice, Uzhorod and surroundings this could be a very important source.
All the best

DNA link between Bachrach families #poland

Hank Mishkoff
 

Those of you who are descended >from either the Bachrach (or Bacharach)
family of Germany or the Bachrach family of eastern Europe might be
interested to learn that DNA evidence indicates that the two rabbinical
Bachrach families are actually the same family.

I would love to explain the DNA testing results in layman's terms --
but I can't, it's all WAY over my head. So if you want more info, you
might want to take a look at the Bacharach DNA Project's website
(http://BacharachDNA.com/), where project administrator Rachel Unkefer
does a considerably better job of explaining it than I could ever hope
to. (Rachel's always looking for more participants to make the data more
robust, BTW, so if you're a Bachrach descendent, I know she'd be thrilled
if you'd sign up to have your DNA tested.) The DNA tests are being
conducted by Family Tree DNA (http://FamilyTreeDNA.com/), which describes
itself as "the world leader in Genetic Genealogy" (and with which I
suspect some of you are already familiar).

(Note that I typically spell Bachrach without the "A" in the middle --
but to save you some frustration, I should point out the project uses
the variation with the middle "A" in its name, as well as in its web
address.)

I should mention that I'm not associated with Family Tree DNA or the
Bacharach DNA Project in any way -- but as the great-great-grandson
of Rabbi Arye Leyb Bachrach of Grajewo, I'd like to say hi to all of
my newly discovered cousins in the Bachrach family of Germany.

MODERATOR'S NOTE: This message is being published as an informational
announcement and not the beginning of a thread. Discussion of DNA is
not within the scope of this list; however, there is a discussion group
on JewishGen for that particular purpose and questions may be addressed
to that list.

Court Records for a Murder Trial in Poland in 1973 #poland

Stanley and Shelda Sandler
 

Hi,

Does anyone know where I can find Court Records for a murder trial that took
place in Kolomyya, Poland, in 1873? The murders occurred on April 11, 1873
in the town of Korolowka which is located near Kolomyya. This was not a
Pogrom. It was a house invasion led by a disgruntled tavern patron and some
of his "goons" which he brought with him. They murdered my
great-grandparents and three of their children in the middle of the night
(possibly after the first Seder). The murderers were caught and held for
trial. The murders were reported in a Kolomyya newspaper (Russkya Rada,
April 1873). The death records of the five victims are posted on
JRI-Poland. According to the information on these documents, the murders
occurred on the night of April 11, 1973.

Oral history indicates that the murderer(s) was/were sentenced to be hanged
in the town square by order of the Emperor or King. Oral history also
indicates that the hanging was carried out.

How can I document the trial and the execution?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Please respond to me directly at stanshel@msn.com

Sincerely,
Stan Sandler

Vilna City 1875 Family List Record Distribution #lithuania

Joel Ratner
 

The Vilna District Research Group (VDRG) is pleased to announce the
distribution of Vol. II (Part I) of the 1875 Vilna City Family List. The
file has been placed on the VDRG NEXO site for all qualified contributors
to access. The distribution of Vol. II has been broken up into two parts
due to funding limitations.

Vilna researchers interested in the 1875 Family List data are once
again encouraged to donate to the translation of this list. Once sufficient
funds have been received, the translation effort for Vol II will resume.
Once that is completed, Vol. IV will be translated since Vol. III has not
been located. Howard Margol was good enough to put out a message to the
Digest in my absence, announcing the availability of these Vol. II
translations. The appeal he made is as follows:

"All that is needed is for 7 researchers to each contribute $200 to the
Vilnius District Research Group and the remainder of Book 2 can be completed.
There are 3,674 researchers listed for Vilnius. Surely 7 of them will be
interested enough to get the remainder of the Vilnius 1875 Family List,
Book 2, translated. As soon as Book 2 is completely translated, those
qualified contributors will not only receive the entire Book 2 but will also
receive Book 1 as well - 7,240 records. This will give them a total of
14,101 records. That is a small price to pay for such a large quantity of
records.

Please check your piggy bank and see what you can do. Go to
www.litvaksig.org/contribute Be sure and designate your contribution is
for the Vilnius District Research Group. The site is secure so feel free
to use your credit card."

So far, we have two positve responses, reducing the required number of
additonal qualified donations to 5. Again, there are many Vilna researchers
out there, most who have not participated in the past. Please take some
time and check that piggy bank as Howard urged. The payback in records is
huge. Qualified donors to this project receive access to the following data
