Dear Genners:
I just wanted to add that the Special Collections reference librarians
at the Brooklyn Public Library were extremely generous when I called
long distance >from Minnesota with a request for information >from the
Brooklyn Eagle archives. They did a search for free and emailed me with
the results.

Dear friends:

I am trying to find:

Boaz TELLERMAN (TAYLORMAN), born in Montreal in May 1925.

He was the son of Loar TELERMAN, born ca 1890 in Poland.

He was (living) in Toronto around 1960 but may have returned to Montreal.

If anyone knows of this family, please contact me immediately.

Thank you.

Just returned from Lithuania #general

Susan Cooper <suzecooper@...>
 

In reply to Baschki Leo's recent posting on Litvaksig, I
also have recently returned >from Lithuania. My purpose
was to find the shtetl my grandfather left in 1880 to
travel to Australia.
I chose to travel in March to take advantage of
off-season accommodation prices and to avoid crowds in tourist
areas. My guide was Simon Davidovitch whose second job is
curator of the Sugihara Museum in Kaunas. This was a
coincidence, as my partner's father, Sygmunt Gerichter,
was one of the fortunates saved by a visa >from Sugihara. The
second coincidence was that Simon and I discovered that we are
related and he knew my shtetl, Varniai,
very well. We met Feiga Leah, the last Jew in Varniai as
well as Jacob Bunke, the last Jew in Plunge. These were very
emotional meetings and have left a very deep impression on me.
Jacob is responsible for all the "totem"-style memorials seen
all over the north-west. He is a "master wood carver" with a
passion for keeping the memory of Lithuanian Jews alive in his
country.
Of course, you can't go very far in Lithuania without
passing a killing place. There are over 200 of these in a very
small country. It's overwhelming. Being there was very important
to me …to pay homage; to say goodbye; to say Kaddish.
I'd be very happy to share more of my experiences
privately. Please write to suzecooper@yahoo.com.au

Re: grave of GREENBERG Al american ww2 dead soldier #general

Sara:

There is only one entry on the US Federal Archives World War II Casualty
list for a PFC Abraham A. Greenberg, US Army, serial no. 42043286 who was Killed
in Action. The entry is listed on page 49 of tne Kings County (i.e.,
Brooklyn) section of the New York State list.
As you stated that your relative was born between 1914 and 1919, the most
likely war that he fought in would be the second World War, being too young for
WW I and too old for the Korean War.
The serial number may help you in your search. You might try contacting
the Army records center in St. Louis Missouri. There is no guarantee that this
is your relative.

Finland emigration port site #general

Hi Guys

At the JGSGB conference at the weekend a Finnish website was mentioned
that has details of people leaving >from Finnish ports to UK and US at
the turn of the century. This was potentially useful to people looking
for their families at the point of departure >from the Baltic states.
However I didn't get the name of the site if anyone has it I'd be
greatful for it.

Thanks
