Should I fill out a Page of Testimony for someone who may not have died? #general

Leslie Weinberg <lbw50@...>
 

I am trying to figure out whether to post a Page of Testimony for a
relative. My grandmother told me that my grandfather's nephew, Jonas
BLUMENBERG (his sister's son) had gotten out of Tyczyn, Poland, in
the 1930s and got to Israel. He was found, she said, by a friend of
my grandfather after the War in 1945, and said he was going to Russia
to look for siblings. I could not ask my grandfather to give me more
details, since he had Alzheimer's at the time. Within the past year,
two Blumenberg relatives told me that to their knowledge, everyone
had perished during the Holocaust. I do not know whether they knew
of this man to begin with, but they certainly had no knowledge of
survivors. Those contacts disappeared on me, not quite sure why, so
I can't follow up with them, either. It would seem at this point
that perhaps this is all hearsay. I do have a copy of this man,
Mozes Blumenberg's, birth certificate, I do know at least that he
existed, but all efforts to find him, and perhaps his surviving
siblings, have been stonewalled. I am wondering whether I should
post a Page of Testimony for him at Yad Vashem. I do not want his
name to be forgotten, but I don't want to post a Page for someone who
might very well still be alive out there, as well. Would someone
please advise me? Thanks, Leslie Weinberg

JENTOWICZ/YENTOWICZ, KALMANOWICZ in Israel, France and Wloclawek #general

Jim Bennett <bennett@...>
 

I'm searching for cousins: Herman/Zvi KALMANOWICZ, was born in 1880 in
Kleczew, and perished in Auschwitz 1944. His wife was Dora/Dvora REICH.

His daughter Janina YENTOWICZ, born about 1915, submitted a page of
testimony to Yad Vashem in 1957 for her father.
His son was Lucien KALMANOWICZ, born about 1910 in Wloclawek.

So I'm searching for the children and grandchildren of Janina and Lucien.
Does anyone know about them?

The digest opened doors for me #yiddish

This place is amazing . I would like to thank Lloica, Marilyn, Sarah and
a whole list that I misplaced of other people who not only contacted me
giving me phone nos, newspaper articles, photos etc but also contacted
other people that knew my relatives that contacted me giving me more info.
When I asked for help in finding information on MARTIN ROMAN who was a
composer and his wife TONI MAUSNER who was a singer and other MAUSNER
relatives. I spoke to one relative that the last time i saw him is when his
father gave me a red trycle with a bell. I had tried for several years to find
out info and one letter in here opened up the doors. thank you again and
again

Field Guide to Visiting a Jewish Cemetery #yiddish

David Harris <dorsharris@...>
 

The following message is being sent to all JewishGen mailings.

Snowbound cemeteries are now cleared for visiting and genealogical sleuthing!

Be sure to include your camera, hedge clippers, notebook,
pencils, whisk broom and Rabbi Joshua Segal's "Field Guide to
Visiting a Jewish Cemetery"....the quintessential tool for unlocking
tombstone inscriptions, decoding dates and deciphering many of the
more common inscriptions.

Rabbi Segal's soft cover book is a necessary "bring-along" whether
you are visiting a cemetery in North America, Europe or Israel since
the inscriptions are similar. The book is available in the
JewishGenMall at a special conference discounted price of only $18 plus S& H.

visit www.jewishgenmall.org and enter the title, A Field Guide to
Visiting a Jewish Cemetery, or the product code JCP101

Happy hunting and successful sleuthing <g>
