info about Jewish refugees in Ivancice and Bruno, Czechoslavkia, 1916-1918 #general

Myrna Seidman <myrnaseidman@...>
 

Hello:
My father and his family were refugees >from Bukovina, Romania in Ivancice
between 1916-1918, and my father attended school (gymnasium) in Brno during
that period. I would be very interested in learning about Jewish refugees
in these communities between 1916-1918; who provided for them; the role of
the Jewish community vis a vis the government, how they were treated, life
in general.
Many thanks
Myrna

Harry RAVITZ / Joseph SASSON #general

linda mason <emisarys@...>
 

Dear JewishGeners,
I am looking for any information that would put some puzzle pieces together for
me, since my immediate family has either passed on, or doesn't talk. I'm looking
for relatives of Harry & Fannie RAVITZ. Harry is listed on the 1930 census as a
painter >from Russia, spoke hebrew, children are Murray, Beatrice, Adolf (who died
WW2), and Anette. There is no record of him coming into the Ellis Island port,
and they lived in Suffolk, Ma.
Also looking for relatives of Joseph & Rachel SASSON. Joseph entered at Ellis
Island 8/29/1920, >from Jerusalem, Palestine, must have married Rachel SAYEG
(born Alexandria Egypt) in America, date unknown. I believe Joseph's brother
Alberto Sasson lives in New York. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you & Shalom,
Linda Mason

See http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Orhei/

Also http://www.jewishgen.org/cemetery/e-europe/moldova.html which refers to
the cemetery there.

Maybe there is an appropriate SIG (Romanian or Moldavian if such a one
exists) that might assist?

Seeking Descendants of Sigmund and Gisela REININGER, and Walter REININGER #general

Carol Monahan <cmonahan26@...>
 

I am trying to help someone in France locate cousins in the U.S. She is the
granddaughter of Sigmund and Gisela REININGER. She knows that Gisela and her
son, Walter REININGER (born in Vienna in 1902) came to the U.S. after WWII.
Walter died in Baltimore in Feb 1969 and had a daughter, Ruth (born in
Vienna in 1937), who married someone named MILLER.

If you have any information about descendants, please contact me privately.
Thank you.

Searching the American Jewish Year Book #lithuania

Joel Ratner
 

I have been asked to expand on my comment about the searchable nature of the
American Jewish Year Book which is online at www.ajcarchives.org . Each
volume of the AJYB is in a searchable PDF format. Once opened, the volume
can be searched for any text of your choosing within Adobe Reader by
selecting "Search", entering your search criteria and letting Adobe Reader
do the rest. Just be advised you must have the exact spelling for this to
work. The spellings I have encountered for towns of interest to Litvaks
include Vilna, Kovno and Gedrovitch [this one was new to me]. It is useful
to do a search on Vilna and Kovno even if these are not your towns of
interest, because in many cases, other towns are listed as [town, Kovno
gub.] or something similar. A search on Kovno and Vilna would therefore
capture most instances of other Lithuanian towns.

Re: WWI events in Lithuania #lithuania

Martin Fischer
 

Joel Ratner <joelrat1@hotmail.com> recommended using the American Jewish
Year Book,which is available in pdf files online at www.ajcarchives.org,
as a source for historical information.

I second that endorsement, and would add a brief explanation of a somewhat
tedious, but potentially productive way of using this source of Jewish and
family history information.

After accessing this site, click on the link at the top of the home page to
get to the "American Jewish Yearbooks, 1899-present" page. This will display
a list of the yearbooks in chronological order.

Click on the yearbook of interest to you. That will open the pdf file of
that particular volume.

Next, click on the search icon, which looks like a pair of binoculars, at
the top left of the window. In the "What word or phrase?" box on the right,
type your area of interest, perhaps Lithuania, or a specific shtetl or city,
or a specific surname. Click on search, then be patient because the first
time you search a particular volume in a session it may take two or three
minutes.

In the 1917-1918 volume, for example, a search for the word Lithuania brings
up nine occurrences of the word in that volume. Then, one at a time,
clicking on each item listed in the results box displays the page on which
Lithuania is mentioned. Each page of interest can be printed out, and you
can navigate to the preceding or following page if necessary.

I have used this process to find some brief mentions of some of my ancestors
who were active in various Jewish communal or fraternal organizations in the
U.S. in the early 20th Century.

As I said, this can be rather time-consuming and tedious. I would be
interested in hearing if someone has developed a more convenient or more
useful way of searching through these yearbooks.
