Dear Saul,

It appears Leon was returning to his home in the U.S.
in 1913. The manifest lists his wife Annie as a
citizen and there address on Willowhby Ave. in
Brooklyn, NY.

In the 1910 Census they were at the same address with
a son Harry who was 12. Both Harry and Annie were
listed as being born in NY. There is an NY birth
record of a Harry Rosenblatt for 26 Aug 1898. Hope
this is a start.

Sincerely,
Yehudah ben Shlomo
U.S.A.

LARG announcement #lodz #poland

Dear Lodz Area Researchers,

I am so pleased to announce that Joe Ross agreed to serve as
Town Leader for Lodz at Jewish Record Indexing-Poland as well
as a contact person for Lodz. Joe has been assuming much of
the responsibilities of Town Leader for Lodz over the past
several years. Now he will be official! As a new Archive
Coordinator, I am very grateful to be working with Joe. In
addition to his duties as Town Leader for Lodz, he wears the hat
as contact person for Szczercow, Zgierz, and just agreed to be
the contact for Lodz.

Welcome to another volunteer, Leon Weintraub of Sweden, who has
agreed to serve as the contact person for Dobra.
Leon has been working hard over the past several years to
create a Memorial for the Jews of Dobra which is near Turek.
The Municipality of Dobra expressed a desire to establish such
a monument commemorating the Jewish history in Dobra. After
long negotiations, Leon was finally able to sign an agreement
October 3, that enables the memorial to be constructed. It
will be erected on part of the site of the former Dobra
synagogue, which was destroyed by the Nazis. To learn more
about this project, contact Leon at Leonweintraub@comhem.se.

The Town Contacts for the towns in LARG can be found at:
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Lodz/LARGtown.htm We have
several "orphan" towns that need volunteers as contacts. Please
consider volunteering for this position.

Let us not forget or neglect all the LDS records that are
microfilmed for our towns. Films may be ordered at any one of
the thousands of local Family History Centers worldwide. In
addition to the complete collection at the Family History
Library (FHL) in Salt Lake City, there are also locations where
large collections of FHL films are permanently available. The
Jewish Records Indexing-Poland Project with its goal to index all
the vital records for our LARG towns needs your help. We need
volunteers to index these records. If you cannot get to a
Family History Center but would be able to work at home
inputting data into an excel spreadsheet, please let me know.
You can join a Shtetl CO-OP if one exists for your town, see
http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/shtetl/status.htm, or order
the microfilms for your town of interest and work on your own. No
matter how you do it, there are many people ready to help.

If you have never done this before, there are many of us ready
and willing to help you become familiar with the process. I
recall when I first looked at the Polish indices, I thought I'd
never ever be able to decipher the letters. Now only a few
years later, I can even plow through some of the Cyrillic
records for my family, albeit sometimes checking letter by
letter. It is a great sense of accomplishment when you can look
at your ancestor's Polish marriage record and know what it
says!!! Please consider joining the team so we can
benefit >from all our efforts.

All the best,
Roni

Death Certificates from Israel #general

Beryl. B <balden@...>
 

re: Death Certificates >from Israel.

I cannot understand why this subject is
so difficult to solve.

All Death Certificates in Israel are issued through
the Ministry of Interior. There are offices of the
Ministry of Interior in practically every town in Israel.
So, if one lives in Israel, one knows where
the aforesaid office is, and will go and make
the application. The Clerk should go
according to the rules and regulations
which are in fact written on the website of the
Ministry of Interior which can be found through
Google.

If one lives outside of Israel, one can either write
to the Ministry of Interior, whose head office is
in Jerusalem (address also to be found on "Google"),
or go to the Israeli Consulate in the Country
where one is living and fill in the forms which will be
given by a Clerk in that office, and not to get annoyed
if one is told that copies of Death Certificates are
given to close family members only.

HOLLA[E]NDER: Szamotuly (aka: Samter), Poland; ZONDEK Profs.: Wronki, #general

arnonh <arnonh@...>
 

Hello, Dear Colleagues!

I'd like to introduce you with this family, the research of which I'm
just starting these days. If it rings a bell to anyone - I'll be very
glad to hear.

HOLLA[E]NDER Bernhard (1864, Szamotuly aka Samter, Posen province,
Poland - 1937, Berlin, Germany)
married his cousin:
HOLLA[E]NDER Martha (1878, probably also in Posen province, Poland -
died in Chille)
They were the cousins of the ZONDEK professors (two of them are:
Bernhard, 1891, Wronki, Posen, Poland - 1966, New York, NY, USA, and
Hermann: 1887-1979)

The HOLLANDERs had a very old textile shop in Szamotuly for many years
until they moved to Germany in the first 1900s.

Bernhard and Martha had at least two children:
* Shalom Zigfried (1902, Szamotuly, Posen, Poland - 1977, Isarel) - who
married Mindla Mary GETR[E/A]ID[E/A].
* Emma - married MONTAR and they moved to Chille before WWII.

Currently, I'm focusing on finding any reference to this family's life
and ancestors in Posen.
Plus, I'm trying to gather more genealogical information about the
ZONDEKs.

Yours,
Arnon Hershkovitz, Israel

Minsk taken circa 1905 in Irkutsk. His son Eliezer (Lazarus) came to London
England having served in the Russian Army during the Russo-Japanese War in
1904. How can I find out why Abraham Chaim was sent to Irkutsk and when he
died ( he was supposed to have been a Chazan) and are there any records of
those who served in the Russian Army and if so where can they be found?

Another Helpful Tool to Advance Your Research #belarus

David M. Fox <davefox73@...>
 

How many times have you wanted contact relatives or fellow researchers to
ask questions that were too complex or involved for email? Have you ever
wanted to have a conference call with three or four relatives or fellow
researchers all over the world and couldn't justify the cost of the call?
How about people researching the same shtetl, one lives in Australia,
another in Israel and a third in the US and you want coordinate research
efforts, but a free exchange could best be accomplished by voice
communications rather then by a series of emails.

Whether you are using the Windows or Macintosh operating system, you can
download a free program, register your name, etc. and talk to anyone in the
world at no cost if they have the software loaded on their computer and have
a microphone attached to their computer. You can even have conference calls
with several people at the same time.[MODERATOR NOTE: This is allowed as a one-time
commercial mention. No other comments will be accepted!!!]

http://skype.com/helloagain.html

http://skype.com/products/skype/macosx/

It only took me a few minutes to download the program, register, and make my
first call.

I also found that there is a search feature that allows you to look for
people who are registered in the Skype network. I type in a few of my less
come surnames and found some possibly unknown relatives for all over the
world. Have not yet followed up on them.

Give it a try and please report success stories related to genealogy
