ViewMate - Picture from Zawichost - Do you recognize anyone? #general

Dear All,

I posted a late 1920's picture of a group of people in Zawichost, Poland. I
only know the name of the young woman on the left - Chana Malka Karbel. She was my
maternal grandmother, born 1909 in Zawichost to Majer Karbel and Alta Ryfka
Sobel. Knowing it's a shot in the dark, I hope someone could identify the other
people.

MAZURENKO/MAYER/MAZOUR/MOZER #general

My great great grandfather reportedly used surnames of both Mazurenko
and Mayer. These evolved to Mazour and Mozer in the U.S. He was a
horticulturist in the Ukraine. Any possible reasons for multiple name
use? Any ideas on how to find out more about him in Ukrainian records?
Thank you.

Major Breakthrough - GRUENHUT / GRUNHUT (u umlaut) #germany

Hank Lobbenberg
 

MODERATOR NOTE: German words spelled with the umlaut (two dots over
a vowel) please spell the word as shown below. This will help
people searching the archives for that word will find it.
A search for "GREUNHUT or GRUNHUT" will not produce results if the
name is written "gru (umlaut)nhut". A link to the SIG archive search
engine is included in the footers at the end of every GerSIG Email. ====>

Over the past weekend I finally completed a puzzle in my Lobbenberg family
tree. A few years ago, Peter Rohel sent me a link to the gru (umlaut)nhut
line. [ GRUENHUT / GRUNHUT u umlaut ]
My mother was Betty G. but I was stymied in my search for ancestors. The
link he sent connected my father to a sixteenth century man and then further
back.
Through contact with a third cousin, Fred Greenhut, I was able to add his
ancestors to my tree and discover that a brother of his great grandfather
was my 2nd great grandfather.
This breakthrough means that my parents were very distantly related.

Dolores Palomo <whoozit@...>
 

For a number of years I have been collecting information about the
Jewish detntion in Shanghai (re my distant cousin Philipp
QUARTIERMEISTER who went >from Dachau to Buchenwald to Shanghai to
Portland OF)-- there are websites, books and articles, and a video
which i have not been able to obtain.

All this info I accumulated in an MS Office OneNote notebook, which I
have exported into Word format, which I have sent only to the
individual but will gladly email to anyone interested.

Also seeking information on anyone with the surname QUARTIERMEISTER

German Section of the JOWBR [JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry] #germany

E Feinstein
 

This is Eric Feinstein. I am a volunteer for the JOWBR. We have made a
special effort to add German records >from many corners (sources) over
the past few years. As of the last update we have 1280 cemeteries with
some 240,929 burials indexed for Germany.
[Select Germany in the country list at:
https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm ]

This number does not include the former German areas of Poland
where we have indexed some 88 cemeteries with a further 25,717 burials.

More is on the way. That said there are many large record sets that
we have not succeeded in making headway. This includes large cemeteries
in Frankfurt am Main, Hannover, Munich, Leipzig and others.

Any assistance would be appreciated, especially >from anyone in Germany
open to lobbying on our behalf. Just a note that "help" does not
include sending us email, phone or contact information --but it does
include using that same information to make the call for us. Big Smile.
Happy Hunting.

All the best, Eric Feinstein, New Jersey ericfeinstein@...

Bialystok Yizkor Book Project #poland

Mark Halpern
 

Dear Fellow Bialystokers:

Did you know that there is a Yizkor Book project for Bialystok? This
project has been going on for a number of years. Only recently have we
identified a very proficient and committed translator of both Yiddish
and Hebrew who is now translating for us.

This project is for translation of Pinkos Bialystok (The Chronicle of
Bialystok) by A.S. Hershberg. This is not your usual Yizkor Book. This
is actually a two volume History of the Jews of Bialystok that
chronicles our history >from its beginnings up to the 1930s. The author
perished in the Bialystok Ghetto, but he was able to send his Yiddish
manuscript to his son in New York. The two volume history was published
in New York after World War Two.

You will find a full table of contents at
https://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Bialystok/Bialystok.html. If you scroll
down, you will notice that Volume I, Chapters 2 and 6 are now complete
as a result of our new translator. Names indexes to both volumes can be
found at https://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/BialyGen/Pinkos1_Index.htm
and https://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/BialyGen/Pinkos2_Index.htm.

It is you, Bialystok researchers, who drive this translation project. We
need your contributions to be able to continue the translation of these
books. No contribnution is too small. Find a Chapter or Section that is
of interest to you or that contains the names of your ancestors and make
a contribution. To sponsor an entire Section or Chapter will cost $30 US
per page. By sponsoring a Chapter or Section, you will not only support
your own research, but help our community of Bialystokers gain a better
understanding of our history.

Contributions can be made through JewishGen-erosity at
https://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23.
Use the sixth project "Bialystok, Poland - Yizkor Book" for your
donations.

If you would like to sponsor an entire section or chapter, please let me
know which section or chapter and the amount of your contribution. I
will make sure that your section or chapter gets translated in a prompt
manner. Contact me at mark@... with your sponsorship or with any
questions you may have.

Thanks in advance.
