National Archives online database #general

sgootman@...
 

Hi.. I found another database on-line that may be helpful. Among the
databases are World War 2 Enlistment Records. There are also other databases
from Korean and Vietnam conflicts. It is aad.archives.gov
I found it confusing at first when I got the info on 3 of my uncles but
stay with it if you find someone.

Marc CHAGALL's family tree #general

eatwelbwel@aol.com <eatwelbwel@...>
 

Does anyone know if CHAGALL's genealogy has been published and where I
might find it? The reason I am asking is because a newly reconnected
with cousin shared a story detailing our distant ancestry with his
family.

Thanks!

Sept. 19th - JGSLA Meeting - "My Grandfather's House" #general

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Los Angeles presents the Los Angeles
premiere of the film:

"My Grandfather's House: The Journey Home"

Monday, September 19th, 7:00 PM
Skirball Cultural Center, Magnin Auditorium
2701 North Sepulveda Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90049

This personal documentary follows Eileen Douglas’s determined search to find
her grandfather’s house in Lithuania--the home he lived in and left behind
in 1911 when he fled, at 16, >from Kovno to America. Four decades after his
death, with only fragments to guide the way, the documentary is Douglas’s
attempt to lift the veil of darkness and discover "where it all began."

PROGRAM:

Before the screening, filmmaker Eileen Douglas will discuss the making of
the documentary, and, in particular, what compelled this personal quest. The
film will be followed by a Q & A with Douglas, co-producer/director Ron
Steinman, and Douglas’ daughter Rachel Zients, of Los Angeles, who also
appears in the documentary.

SYNOPSIS:

Eileen travels >from New York City to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in
Washington, to her mother’s attic in Syracuse, to the homes of relatives,
and, finally, with her daughter at her side, to the block in Kovno where her
grandfather once lived. Along the way she unexpectedly unlocks the mystery
of stories he never told, discovers the fate of family members lost in the
war, learns of the glory that once was Lithuanian Jewry, finds living
relatives missing for years in Siberia, and resurrects a family shattered by
the traumas of the 20th Century.

The documentary weaves together original footage, old family photographs,
archival records, translations of old Yiddish letters, archival film
footage, family reminiscences, interviews, conversations and music scored to
evoke a vanished era.

SPEAKERS:

EILEEN DOUGLAS is a broadcast journalist turned documentary filmmaker.
Before co-founding Douglas/Steinman Productions with producing partner Ron
Steinman in 1996, she worked as a correspondent for ABC-TV’s Lifetime
Magazine, following nearly 18 years at all-news WINS Radio in New York.
Before moving to New York in 1975, she was an anchor/reporter and then one
of the country’s first women news directors at WKLO Radio in Louisville, and
co-host producer of "NOW", a TV show at WHAS.. Douglas and Steinman are also
producers of the documentary "Luboml: My Heart Remembers" which aired on
public television in New York and is distributed by Cinema Guild.

RON STEINMAN, director and co-producer of My Grandfather’s House, began his
career at 23 at NBC News and spent 35 years at the network. In 1975 he
joined the Today Show, spending 11 years in a number of senior producing
positions. During the 1990’s as a freelance producer for ABC, he wrote and
produced a dozen A&E Biographies and Lifetime Intimate Portraits and has won
a Peabody Award, a National Press Club award, two American Women in Radio &
Television Awards, and been nominated for five Emmys.

RACHEL ZIENTS, is Eileen’s daughter who appears in the film, lives in Los
Angeles. She works as a television producer and is a freelance writer.
Following in her mother’s footsteps of investigating family, she is
currently working on her own project, a book about parent loss.

Our meetings are open to the public. Free of charge to JGSLA members, $5
charge for guests.

Rolf KOENIGSBUCH-Royal Army Pay Corps-UK #germany

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Genners and Siggers,
I continue my search after the KOENIGSBUCH brothers
from Hamburg who were on the Kindertransport.
I just found out >from the British Army Personnel in
Glasgow that Rolf Simon Koenigsbuch(b. 1929)served in
the Royal Army Pay Corps and was discharged in 1953.
He served in Malaya.
I wonder whether any of the British Genners served in
the RAPC in those years and remembers him.
I wrote already to AJEX and they couldn't help.I wrote
to the RAPC Association and am waiting for an answer.
I have Rolf's testimony which was filed in 1955 at the
Wiener Library.
I assume that he lives in the USA but all my searches
there did not produce him,so far. Any idea??
