Plymouth and Northants in WW1 #unitedkingdom

MavAlan Shaffer <mavalan_shaffer@...>
 

Dear JGenners,

I am trying to trace army information on my maternal
grandfather, Joseph AARONS, who joined the Army at
Whitehall on 8th January 1918 (according to the
records I have).
He was posted to the Labour Corps and sent to
Maidstone. He remained there 8 days and
then went with "G" Company Labour Corps to Plymouth.
We have a studio photo of him taken at 17 Union
Street, Plymouth.

In June 1918 he was sent to Sheringham, and was later
attached to 9th Battalion Northampton Regiment.
His Regimental no. was 60225.

We have a letter dated 17.6.1919 >from the Colonel I/C
Labour Corps Records, Nottingham, stating no.60225 is
for a G. Smith.

We also have a letter >from R.L.North Major, Asst. O.
I/C No.1 Infantry Records (Northants) No.9 District,
Warne (?) informing us that Joseph 'served with the
Colours in this Regiment >from 8.1.1918 to 14.3.1919
to Class Z (?).' Letter dated 16.7.1919, confirms
Regimental No. 60225.
This letter is on Army Form C343, ref. NN/2 6071/19.
During that period his character was 'Good', 'no entry
recorded against him'.

On 13th February 1919 he was sent to Crystal Palace,
was
demobilised and transferred to "Z" Reserve 14.2.1919.

I should be grateful to hear >from anyone who may have
had a relative who was with Joseph at any time.
Also to learn more about his time in the Army.

He came to England in 1900 >from Minsk and, at the time
of joining the Army, lived at 91 Hackney Grove in
London. He was a boot repairer. At this time, I
believe he spoke but did not write English.

With thanks.

Sorry, I forgot to say my grandfather was born 5th May
1877 in Minsk, so would have been 41 in 1918.

DANCYGIER, DANZIGER from Zagorow and Pyzdry in W. Poland #general

Jim Bennett <bennett@...>
 

I'm searching for descendants of the Dancygier family of Zagorow and Pyzdry
in the Konin-Kalisz area of Western Poland . Isaac Dancygier, b. 1826, son
of Jacob and Nancy [?], married, successively, the sisters Raizel/Rose and
Cyrel Lewinski of Pyzdry [my family], and seven children were born . I'm
looking for what happened to Bayla/Bela b. 1853 in Zagorow; Abraham b. 1858
in Zagorow; and Cyrel, b. 1860 in Zagorow. [she was named for her deceased
aunt, the first wife of Isaac. Likely the two girls married. Possibly some
of them emigrated.

Does any of this ring a bell?

Zvi Bernhardt of Yad Vashem has asked me to post this message regarding
difficulties experienced by researchers using the Yad Vashem Database.

Joyce Field
JewishGen VP, Data Acquisitions

On Yom Hashoah, we [Yad Vashem] put up a whole new site. We did this
in order to integrate a Russian interface for the site, a very
important move as we have also started a project to collect Pages of
Testimony among Russian speaking Jews. The project is currently being
carried out in the Ukraine and in Israel.

Like most new sites, the new site has bugs. We have sorted out most of
the bugs, but the site is still not as stable as the site we had before
Yom Hashoah. At this point, most of the time it works fine, but the
problems described below happens every few days. Our computer people
are working hard to solve the problem as quickly as possible.

PLEASE write us at central.database@yadvashem.org.il if you encounter
technical problems with our site. We usually aren't able to answer you
quickly enough to help you, but you help us (and yourself in the long
run) by making sure we know all the problems that exist.

Dear Genners,

VM8052, 8053 and 8054 are two letters and one postcard written in August
1946 by Leo (Lev) Zuckermann in Switzerland to his youth friend Jacob
Robinson. Unfortunately, my knowledge of Russian is very limited, and
since the letters are handwritten I have even more trouble finding out
what's all about. I would be grateful for any help.

Transferring money to Ukraine in 1914 #general

krippens <krippens@...>
 

Can anyone help me with this question? I am interested to know how money
might have been transferred >from the United States to Ukraine in
1913-1914. If someone in the US wanted to get money to someone in the
Ukraine, what would have been the preferred method? Was there a way to
wire money? Would it have to have been hand-carried or would it have
been sent in the mail?

Thanks very much,
