Pages of Testimony summary for Opalin, Poland/Ukraine #poland

taxtroll@...
 

The project I am working on iss a summary of the Pages of Testimony
where Opalin, Poland (now Ukraine) was reported as the place of birth,
residence, or death of the victim. I've entered all of this data into
an Excel spreadsheet that I'd like to share with anyone who would like
a copy. There are 144 records. A search for "Opalin" on the Yad Vashem
website yields 151 results. There were 7 hits that I concluded were exact
duplicates where both the victim and submitter were the same. If you'd
like a copy of the spreadsheet please e-mail me directly and I'll
forward you a copy along with my theories applied in collecting the
data.

Also, if anyone else has ancestors >from Opalin and would like your
share your information maybe we could create our own little database
with the information we have. According to my g-grandfather Moshe
SHNAYDER's 1908 Brest-Litovsk marriage record he was born in Opalin. So
few records survive for this town. Maybe we can piece together some of
our genealogical puzzles by gathering the bits we know in one place.
I'd be happy to be the point person on this and then share the
summarized data with everyone. Please remember to include the source of
your data so anyone else looking at it will know where it came from.

Please e-mail me directly if you'd like a copy of the Opalin Pages of
Testimony summary and with any information on Opalin ancestors.

Translator needed #poland

Hello all,

I have a number of birth, marriage and death records written in Polish
script which I would like to have translated. There are enough that it
might overwhelm the abilities of viewmate. Consequently I am looking for
a translator to help me verify my very limited Polish reading vocabulary.

I am also looking to reach Nicki >from Tennessee in this matter. Thanks for
your help.

Pages of Testimony summary for Opalin, Poland/Ukraine #ukraine

taxtroll@...
 

First, I'd like to thank everyone who contacted me regarding the
problems I was having searching on the Yad Vashem database. It turns
out that it was a compatibility issue with AOL. Once I started using IE
I was able to finish my project. One person who contacted me told me
that YD is working on upgrading their system >from the current DOS based
version so hopefully these problems won't exist in the future.

The project I was working on was a summary of the Pages of Testimony
where Opalin, Poland (now Ukraine) was reported as the place of birth,
residence, or death of the victim. I've entered all of this data into
an Excel spreadsheet that I'd like to share with anyone who would like
a copy. There are 144 records. A search for "Opalin" on the YD website
yields 151 results. There were 7 hits that I concluded were exact
duplicates where both the victim and submitter were the same. If you'd
like a copy of the spreadsheet please e-mail me directly and I'll
forward you a copy along with my theories applied in collecting the
data.

Also, if anyone else has ancestors >from Opalin and would like your
share your information maybe we could create our own little database
with the information we have. According to my g-grandfather Moshe
SHNAYDER's 1908 Brest-Litovsk marriage record he was born in Opalin. So
few records survive for this town. Maybe we can piece together some of
our genealogical puzzles by gathering the bits we know in one place.
I'd be happy to be the point person on this and then share the
summarized data with everyone. Please remember to include the source of
your data so anyone else looking at it will know where it came from.

Please e-mail me directly if you'd like a copy of the Opalin Pages of
Testimony summary and with any information on Opalin ancestors.

Malkiel of Moscow #general

Rich Lowenthal <richlowenthal@...>
 

While doing genealogical research in a database of historic newspapers, I
found a reference in a 1870's Utah paper of the bankruptcy of the financial
firm, "Malkiel of Moscow." MALKIEL is one of the family names I am
researching, and within my family there are anecdotal associations with
Moscow; does anyone know anything about this firm (or the name) or have any
suggestions where I could look for information?

Thanks,
