Where is here? 

"My parents were survivors from Aushwitz and were sequestered in a DP camp in Celle, Germany. They were finally allowed to come here in 1950. Would they have been required to get Visas to come here? And where can I research this year? Thank you so much. Linda Heller."

Austrian citizenship for UK citizens

Veronica Zundel
 

Is the scheme for Holocaust descendants to apply for Austrian citizenship already up and running in the UK? If so, where would one go to find out about it? On the JewishGen site I have only found a reference to this scheme for US citizens, and it doesn't come into force till September 1st 2020, but I have heard of UK citizens who have already gained citizenship.

Re: Seeking pple connected to the Brodsky family “Sugar Kings of Ukraine”

sharon@...
 

I also have stories about the Brodsky family.
 
My paternal Grandfather, Jacob Zamansky, and his family were master carpenters who worked for the Brodsky
sugar beet farms. My maternal Grandmother Schifra Dolinsky’s father was a bookkeeper for the family.
At one point in time it was told to me that her father Moishe Dolinsky also kept the books for the Brodsky synogogue in
either Smila or Kiyev.
I don’t know what happened to Moishe but his wife Dina and all but one daughter were able
to come to this country. Genia Dolinsky Krupnik supposedly died in the Shoach.
 
There were also many Brodsky family members who emigrated and settled in the Hudson Valley
of New York.

I only have what was in the original blurb including what is on the URLS mentioned.. If you go to the URL of Lost in Russia Family Blog which was in my posting:
there is a tab "free databases" click on that and scroll down to # 6 and #7 that includes World War l databases.

Correction: JGS Conejo Valley and Ventura County November 4 Program When Gravestones Lie with Janette Silverman, Ph.D. # JGS News

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Please excuse me, I had a typo in the title of Janette’s topic in the subject line not the blurb. The correct title of her program is When Gravestones Lie

Jan Meisels Allen

President, JGSCV

_______________

 

The Jewish Genealogical Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County's program is Monday, November 4 7:00-9:00 PM at Temple Adat Elohim 2420 E Hillcrest Drive in Thousand Oaks. Light refreshments will be available.

 

Program:  When Gravestones Lie

 

As Jewish genealogists, we depend on gravestones to provide certain information which might not appear anywhere else: the Hebrew names of the decedent and his/her father. What  happens when the information on a gravestone is incorrect? What if we can't find the gravestone? This discussion will focus on two case studies and the research involved in finding the correct information in one case, and why the gravestone in the second case couldn't be found.

 

Speaker:  Dr. Janette  Silverman  is a Senior Genealogist Research Team Manager at Ancestry ProGenealogists, specializing in Eastern European and Jewish genealogy. Janette’s doctoral dissertation, In Living Memory, explored her family’s background in Eastern Europe and their immigration to the United States from 1885-1925. Janette serves on the IAJGS Board of Directors since 2018 and was lead chair of the 2016 IAJGS conference in Seattle Washington. She served as Ukraine SIG coordinator 5+ years.

 

Traveling Library:

The traveling library with our A and C books.  A list of which books are included are listed on our website https://www.jgscv.org/library-traveling.html   The library is available starting at 1:00 PM.

 

Schmoozing Corner:

The schmoozing corner will begin at 6:30 PM and will be facilitated by one of our senior members.

 

Security Measures:

Increased security measures are in effect at our host, Temple Adat Elohim. Be prepared to stop at the security kiosk and inform the guard that you are attending the JGSCV meeting. If you park in back of the Temple, the gate to the courtyard is now locked. You will have to walk around to the front of the building to access the courtyard and entrance to the Social Hall.

 

Directions:

Take 101 Freeway - exit Rancho Road in Thousand Oaks, go north (if coming from the west, cross Thousand Oaks Blvd) to E. Hillcrest Drive turn right on E. Hillcrest go about 1.3 miles (just east of Conejo School Road) Temple is on the right. There are approximately 75 parking spots within the complex. There is no parking on Hillcrest Drive. You may park in the complex or on any of the side streets.

 

Nominations:  According to the Bylaws, anyone else who is eligible and wishing to be nominated to the Board can do so during the 4 November, 2019 meeting of the Society. An individual may nominate him/herself or another. No second is necessary. Nominees must have been members in good standing of the Society for at least one year. Any person that is nominated from the floor must be present and orally agree to serve on the Board if elected, or if not present must have signed a written statement indicating their willingness to serve if elected.

 

There is no charge to attend the meeting.  Anyone may join JGSCV.


We started our 2020 membership campaign. Renew or join now. Dues will increase by $5.00 starting January 1, 2020 but by renewing or joining now  membership is good through December 31, 2020!

Re: KREMENCHUG POLTAVA

Chuck Weinstein
 

No metrical records from Kremenchug are known to survive.  Records relating to the Shoah, and records relating to the Kahal, or Jewish community between the wars, reside in the Ukraine State Archives in Poltava.  There are also some records related to the pogroms between 1919 and 1924 found there, as well.  None of these records have been filmed or digitized, to our knowledge.  There are a few records in the Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People in Jerusalem that cover the years of 1870 and 1871 about the appointment of Rabbis and teachers to the state Hebrew community. 

 

There is no Town Leader for Kremenchug to organize a project to acquire the few available records and index them.  If you are interested, contact me directly.

Re: Visas from Europe.

A. E. Jordan
 

 
They were finally allowed to come here in 1950. Would they have been required to get Visas to come here? And where can I research this year?
 
Linda asks about how to start researching a 1950 arrival in the USA for survivors of the Shoah.
 
Start with Ancestry which has passenger lists till 1957.  You should be able to find their arrival on the passenger lists and they will likely show up as stateless.  he arrival helps because you know where and when and you might be able to see if they were with a sponsored group.
 
Ancestry is available in most public libraries so you do not have to subscribe (or if you post the specific names to the list, I am sure people will help).
 
A lot of the survivors coming from the DP camps where being managed by one of the relief organizations.  I am not sure if those people got individual visas.  If so, others are posting about how to get the visa records.
 
Also look for the naturalization because those files are public and also give details.  If they lived in New York City you can look on the ItalianGen site as they have a good index into the 1950s.  The records themselves if they are in NYC they are at the National Archives in Manhattan.
