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

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

This week's excerpt >from the Yizkor book for Voronovo, Belarus, about 40
miles due south of Vilnius, is one window on the thoughts, shock, emotions
and fears that ran through the minds of Jews as the horror of the Nazi
occupation closed in on them. In this account of three days in May 1942,
the immediate danger was not the Nazis themselves. "We look at who comes
to kill us," writes Keileh Grodzenchik, describing what those crowded in
his parents' house woke up one day to see. "They are not strangers: they
are the Poles-- your close neighbors-- your acquaintances. There is
Eyseltchok, there is Bibik, Burshu and others that you went to school with
and with whom you built a friendship, and here they are... We are shut in,
enclosed, surrounded by Polish predatory beasts and by German soldiers."

Re: Travel Book for Jewish Lublin and Surroundings #general

Carol Rombro Rider points out Andrzej Trzcinski's 1991 wonderful Lublin
guidebook. I still own my copy of the book >from when I visited Lublin
with my mother in 1993 and I had the honor and pleasure of meeting
Professor Trzcinski on Wednesday night this current week at a lecture
we both attended at Brama Grodzka (Grodzka Gate) in Lublin. The book is
no longer in print but remains full of fascinating material. I would
encourage visitors and researchers who have the book to seek information
beyond the book, however. As with any 27-year-old guide book, time has
made significant aspects of the book out of date, and newer research
over the quarter century since then has filled in many of the blanks in
the book. Having said that, I am not aware of a newer volume to fill the
void of time and it would be a valuable, practical contribution if
someone were to update the book. Professor Trzcinski, himself, is busy
with scholarly projects that will soon bear fruit and be of immense
interest to the Lublin-area Jewish genealogical community. His already-
published book (in Polish) on Lublin area tombstones is definitive and
of immense value to genealogists.

I came across a book that was given to me many years ago by a dear
friend, Morris Gordon.

The title is "A Guide to Jewish Lublin and Surroundings" written by
Andrzej Trzcinski. It was published by the "Jewish Information &
Tourist Bureau" in 1991, Warsaw-Lublin.

I do not know if the book is still being published, but you can try
and find it on line. The book is in English and has 80 pages. In
addition to being about Jewish Lublin, the book also discusses
excursions to many of the smaller Jewish towns in the area.

MARCULESCU in Israel #general

Bob Friedman
 

I'm searching for family or friends of Dinu MARCULESCU (born circa 1904,
probably in Bucharest, Romania) and/or his brother (given name unknown).
They both most likely immigrated to Israel in the early 1960s and are now
buried there (dates & locations unknown).

Dinu's son Ovidiu was born in Bucharest in 1936, went to Israel about
1962, immigrated to NY in 1969, and died here in April of this year.

Dinu's wife Emma (maiden name BOSSEL) died in Aachen, Germany in 1981.

Please reply privately. Thank you!

Seeking help looking up naturalization records in Troy, Rensselaer, New York. #general

sacredsisters677 <sacredsisters677@...>
 

Hi all
I have two ancestors that I need help with locating copies of their
naturalization record. One is for my great great grandfather George
Harris and the other his father-inlaw Benjamin Dolinsky. Both became
citizens before 1900. George Harris was born about 1860 in Russia and
immigrated about 1888 and settled in Troy. He lived there for many
years and had 10 kids. Benjamin was born about 1837, and immigrated
about 1885. Benjamin died in 1912 and George 1940. Any and all help
is appreciated.

Baruch Dayan HaEmet - Ruth Gamper Silver #general

Robinn Magid
 

I am saddened to report the recent and sudden passing of Ruth Gamper
Silver, a longtime volunteer in the Jewish Genealogy world and a good
friend to many of us. Ruth volunteered in the Belarus SIG as a data
acquisition coordinator and with Paul Zoglin and David Feldman, worked
hard to create a cooperative relationship with other SIGs. Ruth was a
dedicated and active volunteer for JRI-Poland.org working with me in
the Lublin region for many years. Her cheerful attitude, willingness
to help, and ability to tell a story will be sorely missed. Ruth loved
her family and her cats very much. May her memory be for a blessing.
