Re: CITRON #romania

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

Dear Anita,

You can find towns throughout Romania where CITRONs lived (and their
occupations and sometimes their street addresses) by searching 1924/1925
Romanian business directories via www.kalter.org/search. Scroll down to the
Romanian search box, then do a Daitch-Mokotoff Soundex search for [C]itron
(the [] forces the first letter, otherwise you will receive many false
positives because of S and C possibly sounding alike). The result will be a
list of image numbers containing soundex matches, each followed by the match
in parentheses. This finds matches such as CZITROM, CSITRON, CZITRONI,
CZITRANI, etc. (some of the "ni" might be incorrectly recognized "m"). You
can then click on the link to the directory, which is available online from
the Library of Congress, and view these images.

Best regards,

Re: Wikipedia list of German Jews names #general

It's a nice start, and Wikipedia is cooperative by definition, so
further contributions will improve it.

Who wants to be the first to tell them about Heinrich Heine?

While surfing google I found they have a rather extensive list of German
names, mostly people who were famous, but not all. They have the same for
other countries. Some people may find a relative listed. You can click on
the name and it gives good information on that person. Go to google, type in
List of German Jews. Hope it helps someone.

Interpreting World War 1 draft registration #general

Mimi Katz <GeveretKatz@...>
 

My uncle was born in Chicago, 1896. In 1918, when he registered for the
World War 1 draft, he was living in Cleveland, Ohio. The form is signed by
a registrar, dated, and stamped "Chicago Local Board No. 20; Federal
Building, South Chicago, IL". Below that, there is a stamp that says "Local
Board for Division No. 6, City of Cleveland, Westside YMCA, Cleveland
Ohio". According to a popular, online, subscription genealogy service, the
place of registration was Cleveland, not Chicago or South Chicago.

I don't understand. Can someone please explain how this worked? Why would
Chicago be involved if he was living in Cleveland?

Holocaust memorials photographs now online #ukraine

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

Greetings,
I have now put online photographs of more than one-hundred and thirty
Holocaust memorials that have been erected in a number of New York and New
Jersey cemeteries. More than fifty of these memorials are associated with
towns and cities that are now part of the Ukraine. There are still more
memorials that I haven't photographed yet, but the ones that are now online
probably represent eighty or ninety-percent of the memorials that have been
erected in the various New York and New Jersey cemeteries.

You can access these photographs by clicking on the link under my signature
below. More than one-hundred of these large number of memorials are
associated with Ukranian and Polish towns, though there are some >from
Lithuania, Belarus, Moldova, as well as one each >from Greece and the then
Yugoslavia. The entire list of memorials on this page is arranged by country
and is alphabetical to make your searches easier. Be sure to click on the
thumbnail photos on many of these webpages in order to see the larger
images. Do remember that there is often a gold icon at the bottom right
corner of many of the larger images mentioned that will appear once your
mouse cursor passes over the bottom right corner (after a few seconds), that
will make the image even larger, just in case you need this extra
enlargement to better decipher the inscription.

As I've mentioned in past, I am also currently working on a companion
exhibition for the Holocaust memorials in Europe. I have received some >from
my fellow researchers but can always use more. Currently, I have memorial
photos >from Brody, Czernowitz, Kupiskis, Lviv, Podhajce and Rivne in the
Ukraine. I welcome photos of Holocaust memorials >from any country, not only
in the United States and Europe, but also >from Israel and other countries
around the world.

Thank you once again to those of you who have generously donated both
material and your time to answer my queries. I am hoping to include English
translations of many of the inscriptions that appear on these memorials, and
once those who have offered their help send me their translations, I will
add these translations to the appropriate webpages. In this way, those who
cannot read Hebrew/Yiddish will be able to know fully what has been written.

I do hope you find my Holocaust memorial exhibition informative and moving.
It has certainly moved me. I am so very grateful that I've had the
opportunity to honor our ancestors in this way, to further memorialize those
who perished in the Holocaust so that we never forget what occurred during
this terribly tragic time in Jewish history.

New Book, "Caviar and Ashes" in the JewishGenMall #ukraine

Carol W. Skydell <cskydell@...>
 

Dear JewishGenners,

Whether your ancestors came >from Poland or you are just interested in the
history of the Polish intellectuals of the 20th century, the new book
"Caviar and Ashes" by Dr. Marci Shore is sure to be a fascinating read.
Recently published by Yale University Press, the book can now be purchased
at a discounted price through the JewishGenMall.

Dr. Shore's "Caviar and Ashes" eloquently presents the history of a
generation of Polish intelligentsia born at the turn of the last
century. The book follows the lives of young innovators who chose the
Marxist philosophy even before Poland fell under the control of the Soviet
Union. Their selected path took them >from literary cafes not only to
corridors of power but also to prison cells. The work, based on the newly
obtainable archives >from Poland, the ex-USSR and Israel, recounts over
fifty years of Eastern-European Jewish literati history in the twentieth
century.

Please visit the JewishGenMall at < www.jewishgenmall.org > and to read
more about the book or to place your order, click on the moving banner..

We welcome your visit and appreciate whatever purchases are made in the
JewishGenMall since this is one way of helping support JewishGen programs
and projects.
