family of Plonsk and Zakroczyn . Emigrated to the U.S. - probably to Illinois
or Indiana, however there is one member of the family of whom I am very
interested ; he would be Michael, who may have drifted to Colorado .

Thank you for your help .

Exciting News on the Licy Waller Archive #unitedkingdom

Louise Messik <louise@...>
 

This evening webmaster John Berman received an email in French which he
sent to me to translate. It is most certainly a genuine contact >from a
cousin whose father is Pierre Paul Sauer. A precis of the original French email
and others that follow tells of how Laurent Sauer fell across the website purely
by chance and is now able to piece together more of his missing family and
recognises some of the faces in the photographs on the site. His father is both
proud and excited that his son persevered with the research and came up trumps.

We have continued to correspond this evening and it is my hope that some of
the family may come to London >from Brussels to look at the originals, to
help us to piece together more of the Licy Waller story constructing perhaps
a family tree, before all the papers are put into a safe archive. I intend
to talk on the telephone to Pierre Sauer this weekend.

What a great ending to a story that has mystified many of us who have read
much of the correspondence contained at
http://www.jgsgb.org.uk/waller/waller_letters_offcialllist.php?cmd=3Drese=
tall.
Hopefully before long I shall be able to give you further updates.

Warsaw cemetery #general

Paul Silverstone
 

I have a photograph taken in 1927 in Warsaw of the gravestone of my great-
grandmother. She died about 1908. How can I find out if this gravestone still
exists, as I understand some Jewish cemeteries in Warsaw remain? I can send a
scan of the photo if there is anyone who is knowledgeable about this.

most famous of this family was RABBI SHLOMO YAAKOV SHEIN who wrote many
books and among them Avnei Shais, in memory of his son Abba. He and his
wife brought up their nine grandchildren. I am looking for anyone who
might have information about them. Their names are: Chaim, Ester, Laser,
Mira, Moshe Hillel, Yichiel, Banius, Dora and Bluma.

Looking forward to your replies,

This picture was taken in the 1950s in Hollywood at a 20th Century Fox sales
meeting. My father and uncle are on either side of this woman, who I think is
a movie actress. Anyone recognize her?
