--
I am searching for Sylvia Rose and or her descendants.  She was daughter of my great aunt  Lena Kaufer Rose and lived in Long Beach CA.  Her mother and father operated the Rose Hotel there.  The last information I have about her is in the 1940 census. She may have been adopted by Lena and her husband Lee or Leo Rose (on marriage license Rosenblum issued in Chicago).  Lena was the sister of my PGF Edward Kaufer and his siblings. all in Chicago.  thanks.


This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page

Bruce Drake
 

One of the most well-known eyewitness accounts of Nazi brutality is one written by German-born Hermann Friedrich Graebe about the mass-killing that took place in Dubno in 1942. Graebe joined the Nazi party in 1931, but soon became disenchanted with it and was openly critical about the Nazis’ campaign against Jewish businesses. He witnessed the Dubno events during his time as a manager of a German construction firm in the Ukraine — one that employed a Jewish workforce to build and renovate structures needed for railroad communications.

His account — “Testimony about the slaughter in Dubno” —is included in the Yizkor book of Dubno (Ukraine). Graebe was recognizied by Yad Vashem in 1965 as “Righteous Among the Nations.”

seeking help planning visit to Lublin and maybe Chelm #poland

Paula & David
 

I am in the early stages of planning a trip next spring to Eastern
Europe, and considering adding a couple of days in Poland to visit the
area where my mother was born (Chelm). My online research seems to
indicate that there are a number of sites significant to the past Jewish
community to see in Lublin, but it is not clear what may remain to see
in Chelm. I have two old family addresses in Chelm, but with the aid
of Google maps I can see that there is a store at one of the locations
and open land at the other.

I am wondering if anyone who has traveled to these two locations can let
me know a bit more about their experiences so I can make a more informed
decision about whether to go to one or both.

Also, though I have one lead, if you know the name of a local guide to
recommend, or any other local travel recommendations, that would be
welcome.

Thanks, Paula Solomon

Finishers Sick Benevolent Association

Steve Stein
 

Does anyone know anything about the Finishers Sick Benevolent Association, who had a single burial plot in Washington Cemetery in Brooklyn, NY? Is it associated somehow with a trade union? The JGSNY database does not have a geographic location it is associated with.

Please do not refer me to the JGSNY Burial Societies database.

Projects for Novograd-Volynsk City and Nearby Towns Baranivka; Horodnytsia; Lyubar; Nova Chortoryia; Ostropil; Polonne; Rohachiv; Romaniv; etc. #yizkorbooks #ukraine

Ellen Shindelman Kowitt
 

There are so many genealogy projects going on for the city and administrative district of Novograd Volynsk! 

#1) Significant progress has been made on translating the Novograd Volynsk Yizkor Book since June of this year. Table of Contents at https://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/zvhil/zvhil.html More $ is needed to continue, so please donate generously at https://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23

#2) The Lyubar town group purchased a full set of revision and supplement lists (1816-1874) for the administrative district of Novograd-Volynsk this year (which includes the city of N-V along with 12 other nearby towns Baranivka; Berezdiv; Horodnytsia; Korets; Krasnostav; Lyubar; Myropil; Nova Chortoryia; Novohrad-Volynskyi City; Ostropil; Polonne; Rohachiv; and Romaniv). All of these digital files were made available on Alex Krakovsky's website and are free to browse. 

#3) A TOWN FINDING AID for each of the 13 towns in these Revision Lists was created and publicized. See Lara Diamond's Blog where I posted the PAGE INDEX for each town at https://larasgenealogy.blogspot.com/2019/08/town-finding-aid-created-for-novohrad.html. THIS TELLS YOU EXACTLY WHERE YOU CAN FIND YOUR TOWN WITHIN THESE MASSIVE BOOK IMAGES TOTALLING 10,000+ PAGES. The 1872-1874 book has been added since publication.

#4) There is a SURNAME INDEX IN ENGLISH completely finished for all of the revision lists for the towns of Lyubar (1000+ pages) and Ostropol online. Visit my Lyubar KehilaLinks website to read an explanation of the project and to search for your surname at https://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/Lyubar/revisionlistproject.html. 

#5) MORE surname indices to these revision lists are coming in the near future for Baranivka, Horodnystia, Nova Chartoryia, Polonne (including Poninka), Rohachiv and Romaniv!

All of this extraordinary translation and indexing of the revision lists was done by a volunteer named Deborah Glassman! Check out her website with the completed master surname list from the revision lists for Ostropol at https://jewishfamiliesofostropol.com/. Deb has also revolutionized how we should be reading the revision lists with a new analysis looking at households over time and not just within one revision year. Hopefully, she will lecture at the San Diego IAJGS Conference on this unique report she has composed.

*Note that if Korets and Krasnostav are of interest, then you might want to check in with Michael Levin and Dr. Rachel Goodman who are adding free revision list indices in English on the Tsal Kaplan Foundation website at https://www.tkfgen.org/.  

Very happy, and agree that it's been a long time coming for those of us interested in records and indices for the towns on the eastern side of Volhynia.

Jewish Exponent (Philadelphia) Article about Miriam Weiner

Mark Halpern
 

The Jewish Genealogical and Archival Society of Greater Philadelphia held its sixth annual Steve Schecter Memorial Lecture last Sunday. Miriam Weiner was the keynote speaker.

Miriam's career as a breakthrough Jewish Genealogist was captured in an article in the Jewish Exponent. The article is a good read and mentions a few other Philadelphia Society members.

It was also announced that Fred Blum would step down after 12 years as President and Felicia Mode Alexander would become the Society's first female President.

Re: Shorskey, Russia - Any idea of a current name?

Carlos Glikson
 

"brocky33" asked for ideas about a current name for "Shorskey, Russia". It appears on naturalization papers of a relative of her husband. "Brocky" found no occurrences in JewishGen's Town Finder. A search in JGTF for approximations to the sound that came to my mind shows ten variants for


Czortków, Galicia, Austrian Empire, before WWI

Chortkiv, Ukraine, (present name),  232 miles WSW of Kyyiv

49°01' N 25°48' E, 235 entries in JewishGen's Family Finder.


Variants include Czortkiw, Tschortkiw [Ger], and others (or their transliterations) ending in -ov, -ow (with and without a diacritic mark), -uv and -ev.


Chortkiv, Ukraine, today.

Czortkiw
Tschortkiw
Shorskey, perhaps?


Hope this helps,
