Dear researchers, The German website www.danzig.de is partly under
construction, but Mr. Naujocks tells about old maps and history of
Danzig coming soon. On the German website www.raether-buch.de the author
wants to publish city maps ("Historische Landkarten") >from 1910 of
Danzig (and Stettin, Breslau, Thorn and Koenigsberg).
Best regards

Many people don't realize that they can save information regarding a
Yad Vashem PoT on their computer. Below, I give instructions for

Take a Look at Friday's Conference Schedule! #germany

gersig@...
 

MODERATOR NOTE: The following is posted by request >from our hosts at JewishGen:

Before you book that return plane ticket, or plan to hop on the train to
your summer home or to take off for the beach, please look at the Conference's
Friday morning schedule. We have some very exciting talks and
events planned that morning that you won't want to miss.

We have been blessed with over 260 presentations. Rather than keeping
everyone awake until midnight every night to attend them, we opted to
schedule a full morning of sessions on Friday, Aug. 18, >from 8:00 a.m.
to 12:15 p.m.

If you're interested in Jews >from Lithuania, Ukraine, Hungary, Greece,
Transcarpathia, Scotland -- or New York...

If you'd like to gain exposure on the Internet, unearth deep dark secrets
about the criminals in your family's past, or find other "Jews in the news"...

If you need advice on getting organized, publishing your research, or
conserving your photos and documents...

If you're searching for living relatives or trying to learn more about Shoah
victims or survivors...

If you hope to understand your "chochka" (or how a word comes to be spelled
that way)...

If you want to hear the story of a genealogist who became "suddenly Jewish"...

...Friday has something for you. I suggest that you read about Friday's
sessions on the Conference web site

www.jgsny2006.org/conference_program.cfm

One of these programs requires some preparation. For "The Jewish Chochka and
Ephemera Road Show" (Session 408), Rafi Guber requests that registrants
bring family items, documents, photos, and ephemera to the conference.
He and a panel will help determine when and >from where the items originated and
any other secrets they may reveal about your family. Please remember to
bring along items for this exciting session.

Stay through the 18th and leave on a chai!

EARLY REGISTRATION MUST BE SUBMITTED BY MAY 15, 2006 !!!

Help identifying Polish city on Russian-German border during WWI #warsaw #poland

Gary Katz <katzgary@...>
 

I recently located the following April 7, 1921 newspaper article
related to my KATZ family in the Bismarck (North Dakota) Tribune. I'd
greatly appreciate if anyone can help me identify the Polish city
that is described.

FAMILY WIPED OUT IN WORLD WAR, SAYS NIECE

Joe Katz after Six Years Without Letters Receive News of Deaths


Joe Katz received word today >from a niece in Poland that three
brothers and two sisters were killed during the World war.

Mr. Katz has been trying for six years to get in communications with
some of his relatives in Poland, but today message of death was the
first once which he has received.

His niece said that she did not know whether they had been shot or
starved to death.

They lived about 150 miles west of Warsaw in a small city in which
the Russians and Germans clashed 16 times during the war.

The writer declared that the brothers and sisters had been driven out
of their homes and everything which they had had been taken. They
were all well to do.


In the mid-1800s, the family had lived in the Vilna area.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Jolti Name or Zolty Name #ukraine

I'm searching the Jolti name or the Zolty name, in Jolti Vody
(Yellow waters) in Dniepropetrovsk Region.

In the past, Jolti Vody before 1648 was a Polish city. In the
past, there was family under the name Jolti as in Poland : Zolty.


The name Zolty or Jolti came >from the adjective which mean
yellow. The yellow color was derogatory which means the treacherous Jews.
