Waslowces #general

Avigdor&Laia <lbendov@...>
 

Has anyone knowledge of a Ukrainian battalion organized by the Germans
called the "Waslowces"?
They operated in Poland against the Polish and Russian partisans hiding in
the forests and of course murdered Jews as part of their activities. I
wonder if the name is associated with the town in Ukraine of the same name.
I have also seen it spelled Wlasowce.

You can join and ask for help on the mailing list for Australian
Jewish genealogy via the Forum item on the menu at www.ajgs.org.au.
We have a few knowledgable New Zealand researchers.

================================

Is there anyone researching Jewish ancestry in New Zealand especially
Dunedin, but also Wellington and Auckland?

My family came to Dunedin circa 1870 and some moved on to Wellington and
Auckland about the turn of the century.

I am interested in locating any registers or contacts that may have access
to these.

Also any on-line links to further information would be very helpful.

Using the proper SUBJECT line, and ensuring success for your posting #general

MBernet@...
 

Yesterday I received a message , the subject line read "Re: The name Hannah."

I opened it, eagerly because I had been communicating about that name with
various people, and because I have great respect for the knowledge, memories
and insight of the owner of that particular return address.

I was disappointed. The only name featured was that of one Leah and her
convoluted family.

Please! Many of us have implored posters many times: subject lines serve to
alert readers to the content of your message, to alert them to the fact that
your message may be of great interest to them--or totally inconsequential.

Serious people looking for this particular Leah would have automatically
deleted the Hannah message. People looking for Hannah may never again trust a
subject line by this particular poster.

We/I are not trying to bind you with absurd rules. This is an attempt to
help every poster on jewishgen (or elsewhere) to achieve maximum results by
ensuring that your posting is read by those for whom you intended it.

Don't just hit the Reply button: reword the subject line so that it will be
opened by those you're trying to inform or whose help you're trying to solicit.

Your subject line is your banner headline. It's your point-of-sale display.
It's your genealogy-store entry in the Yellow Pages. It's your opportunity
to let viewers know what you're seeking or what you're offering. It's a
personal matchmaker between your family tree and those who can nourish the roots
and leaves. Don't waste it. Spend a little time on it. Word it carefully
and specifically and precisely.

You don't need to tell us you have a question or that you seek help or
information or even that you've hit a brick wall. That's our business and our
problem here, after all, each and every one of us.

Be specific. Where appropriate, give the name, the location, the language
and the date. Don't ask for "Cohen"; make that "David Cohen, Scranton PA
1870-1880." Don't ask for "Translation wanted" but "Translation Hungarian >
English, hand-written letter, 1915."

Don't ask "Is this Jewish?" but "Is Yerachmiel a Jewish name?" Dont ask "too
young to marry?" but "Could a Jewish girl of 15 get married in Lemberg in
1912?"

You've got about ten words for your subject line. Use them wisely, carefully.
Focus sharply. Get your message across clearly and unambiguously. Serve
yourself optimally--and avoid imposing on your fellow genner with a misleading
subject line.

And for everyone's sake, don't simply hit "Reply." If what you write no
longer fits the original subject line, rewrite that line.

Happy Pesach to all.

English Census -- 1851 #general

egrdn@...
 

If you who are among those who are unable to find family in the digitized
1851 English census on a well-known genealogy website, you may want to look at
the complete webpage which starts with the form for filling in the search
terms specifically for the 1851 census. Further down the page is an "Extended
Description" which includes the following:

"....the census returns of the following localities have been damaged by
water during storage. Most of the damaged pieces are in the area of Manchester."

There are several other "known problems" listed for the 1851 census as well,
most of them detailed on the above page about this census.

So, if you cannot find your family in 1851, they may have been listed in one
of the missing or illegible sections.
