I am curious whether you have posted on this digest about your relatives
from the Ukraine? How do you know they came to South Africa? When did they
come? Were they perhaps part of the Ochberg Orphans group >from the Ukraine?

Is Cape Colony the same as Cape Town or is one a part of the other?

Re: Naturalization #general

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

In response to Milton Botwinick's inquiry about how to obtain SA
naturalizations, I suggest the following:

1. Determine when your ancestor might have come to SA and the possible
period then when naturalization might have occurred.

2. If the time period was during 1903-1907, the SA SIG web site has a
database I prepared for some 999 naturalizations in the Cape Colony,
http://www.jewishgen.org/SAfrica/natrec.htm .

It also can be found in the SA Jewish Rootsbank database,
http://grub.its.uct.ac.za/cgi/cgi_RootWeb.exe?entry_point=Home .

3. You can look up your ancestor in the SA National Archives daabase and
see if their naturalization record or even their immigration papers are
contained there,
http://www.national.archsrch.gov.za/sm300cv/smws/sm300gi?200509030821427D6D0162%26DB%3DRSAE.

4. You can go to the SA SIG web site, http://www.jewishgen.org/SAfrica,
and look up how to order naturalizations, and also go to the JewishGen
InfoFile on South Africa prepared by Dr. Saul Issroff at
http://www.jewishgen.org/infofiles/za-infoa.txt or
http://www.jewishgen.org/infofiles/za-infob.txt which will provide the
address of the Archives.

5. You can also lookup applications for naturalizations for the Cape Colony
to be found in the Mormon Family History Center's South African microfilms,
also discussed by Roy Ogus for the period 1883-1911on the SA SIG web site,
http://www.jewishgen.org/SAfrica/mormon-fhc/mormon.htm. Other materials
relating to naturalization are also to be found there.

Memorial pages - Dabrowa Gornicza #general

Lance Ackerfeld <ackerfeld@...>
 

Dear Dabrowa Gornicza Researchers,

I am honored to be able to announce that the 85 pages of memorial pages from
the Dabrowa Gornicza Yizkor Book are now online in the JewishGen Yizkor Book
Project. These pages include a myriad of photographs and names that
immortalize members of families who died in the Holocaust whilst also
providing important details for the researcher about these same families.

This project took quite a time before it saw the light of day and most of
the credit for these impressive pages must be given to Osnat Ramaty who
burned large quantities of midnight oil in keeping the format of these pages
as close as possible to the original. My thanks also go out to Ricky Benhart
who graciously volunteered to help translate the Yiddish dedications within
this section.

The index for these pages can be found at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/Dabrowa/Dabnec.html

And the main page for the Dabrowa Gornicza Yizkor Book at:

Visiting Cemeteries #general

Joseph Fibel <JFibel@...>
 

Dear Genners:

I have a couple of additional comments on visiting
family cemeteries that may not have been visited in a long time.

Ask the cemetery office on the phone before visiting if there is perpetual
care on the graves you are researching. If not, you should be prepared to
rescue the grave(s) >from extensive overgrowth. Therefore, bring with you
also a pair of clippers (if there are two of you bring two pair). Wear long
sleeve shirts and long pants not shorts. Also bring several large garbage
bags for the debris >from clearing up the plot. Of course, bring a camera
(and extra batteries,) a clipboard with extra paper and several pens and
paper. Hopefully, you won't need all of this but you might. (I have)

Record everything on the grave stones as well as taking pictures and look
around for relatives.

If you find well tended graves ask the office who is taking care of the
graves. It probably will be a cousin.

Take pictures of the plot gates, and of course, look for relatives' graves.

If there are still burials taking place, ask the office the name, address,
and phone number of the person giving permission to open graves. That
organization might have info not available elsewhere.

Take down the names, addresses and phone #'s of the nearby headstone
suppliers because they might have information for you.

The cemetery also probably has the number of the death certificate and may
even still retain a copy. Always politely ask for a copy of the plot map or
even a cemetery map if available.

There are two additional things you might want to plan to do at the same
time during your visit. The first is to visit the local library looking for
a copy of an obit and secondly to go to the local court house looking for
the Surrogates Court (or its local equivalent) and try to get get a copy of
the will(s)
