VM 6893-5 Need Russian,Hebrew and Yiddish translations please #general

Pat Gilbert <canadasnowbirds@...>
 

Dear Fellow Researchers:

I would be very grateful if someone would take a look at the following
records and translate them for me:

1. My mother's Russian(?) language Birth Certificate written (not
printed). I would appreciate knowing the names of all the parties, where and
when the certificate was issued. Was it usual practice for the certificate
to be written? The family name was ASOWICHh (var. spellings) but I have not
found any records on-line for this surname in Russia/Ukraine other than
references to books.
Viewmate File# VM6983

2. This is my grandparents' tombstone in Winnipeg, Canada. A few very
helpful researchers have already suggested that my grandparent's fathers'
names were both "Yitzchok".
Is there any other information to be gained >from the tombstone? It may be
possible to rescan it to be more legible on-line.
Viewmate File# VM6984

3. This is a postcard greeting >from Argentina written in Yiddish. I am
interested in any names other than the ones that are quite legible. The
writing is somewhat faded, however. and a helpful researcher has already
suggested that the greeting is >from "Ohav or Ohad" and the surname is
SCOLNIK (or var spelling). Is "Ohav or Ohad" a Yiddish or Hebrew name?

Many thanks to the researchers who have already been so helpful. I will
respond to you privately.

Dear all,

Using auction sites for genealogical research is indeed a very useful resource. Here is my experience of what can be found or done with auction sites:

1. Some of the most prominent auction sites allow very specific searches such as memorabilia and judaica of certain kind or region of the world. I enjoy looking for such themes and sometimes bump into a very interesting object or offer.

2. Although the Internet is full of used and rare books search sites, auction sites are an alternative for finding books out-of-print.

3. The very well known auction site offers a valuable resource: one can receive email warnings about certain very specific searches. For example, I have one of such requests for the name "Venetianer" and all of it many spelling variants. Since this is an unique surname, I get only few feedback messages, but when one does arrives, it almost certainly contains something of my interest.

4. I use this same feature to search for bargain Yizkor books, which in their original are very expensive and rarely show up in used books sites.

5. I also use this feature to search for vital records in Eastern Europe. Clearly I won't find documents related to my family, but sometimes I find very interesting documents which educate me in the kind of stuff to look for in the future.

6. I search for documents related to the major towns and shtetls I am researching. Many times I find objects which tell me more about the local culture and customs. Of course, the keyword "Jewish" is always added to this search.

I hope you find this useful.

Search for the book *By Grace Alone* #hungary

I am interested in information concerning the book *By Grace Alone*, by
Juliana Ray. The book is supposed to tell the story of the Hungarian family
LEIMDOERFER during the Shoa. It has been published 1985 by HarperCollins New
Zealand, ISBN: 0551011874, has been out of print and there is apparently
also no offer of a used copy. Has anybody read it?
Thanks,
Uri Meretz, Israel

Searching for MEYER, FURST, WALLICH, BENDIXSEN in Copenhagen #scandinavia

Bryan Appleby <bryan@...>
 

My great grandfather, Ludwig Rudolph MEYER, came to England in 1854 from
Copenhagen. I have managed to locate him and his siblings, his parents
(Rudolph MEYER / Rose WALLICH) and their siblings, and his grandparents
(Levin MEYER / Sara FURST and Simon WALLICH / Jacobine BENDIXSEN) using
the films taken by the LDS Church of the relevant records of the Mosaic
Congregation in Copenhagen. However, these records cease around 1800.
Family stories suggest there were MEYER relatives in Hamburg and Bremen
but so far I have no information to confirm the stories. I'd appreciate
any assistance as to where I might find earlier records in Denmark, if
they exist, so that I may take my research back still further.

Polish Citizenship #general

laudergen@...
 

Dear Genners:

In a precedent-setting and final decision last Friday, the Polish Supreme
Court (NSA) ruled that the 1958 State Council decree stripping emigrants
of their Polish citizenship was illegal and therefore invalid.

As a result, all Polish citizens who were theoretically stripped of their
Polish citizenship when forced to emigrate to Israel, Germany and other
countries in 1958, in 1968 and in subsequent years *remain Polish citizens*
and are entitled by law to confirmation of their Polish -- and hence
European Union -- citizenship.

This decision affects as many as two million people worldwide, many tens
of thousands of Polish Jews amongst them.

Please note that we are not lawyers nor are we Polish consular officials;
we are merely passing along information >from the Polish press that might
be of interest to many of those reading this list.

With best wishes for a happy and healthy Sukkot,

Searching for Holocaust survivors from a German town destroyed during WW2 Sachsenhausen-in-Waldeck #general

Charutz <yairharu@...>
 

Hi Jewiahgenners,

I have a problem in trying to trace possible Holocaust survivors >from a
village in Central Germany (name Sachsenhausen-in-Waldeck), which was
destroyed during WWII. The area was apparently bombed by the Allies and the
town was destroyed, with the result that neither the town nor any archival
records of the town survived the war.

My wife's late father, Bernhard HIRSCH lived in this town before the war. He
left Gemany as a young man during the1930''s soon after the Nazis came to
power and emigrated to Palestine. He managed to persuade his two sisters and
a cousin to join him there. As far as any of them knew, they were the only
Jews to survive >from that town. During the 1950's-1960's, the cousin tried
to find information about survivors but was unable to do so because of the
lack of official surviving records.

I am hoping that, somehow, there were other survivors who may have got
somewhere else in the world, Some of them may read Jewishgen and will be
able to contact us.

I thought of lisstting this in the JGFF, but came across a problem there.
The JGFF software will not allow me to list "Sachsenhausen-in-Waldeck", as
this a presently non-existent town. It was suggested that I list the town as
Sachsenhausen. Apparently, there sre hundreds of towns, villages, suburbs;
etc. with the name of Sachsenhausen in various parts of Germany. Thus
listing "Hirsch" (a very common Jewish name in Germany) >from "Sachsenhausen"
(one of hundreds Germany) is meaningless.

So, if any of you could help me with this problem, I would be very grateful.

I am looking specifically for information about

1: a town/village called Sachsenhausen-in-Waldeck in Central Germany.

2: any Jewish survivors of the Holocaust >from this town or region.

Codes for "Last Residence" Column - SSDI #general

Israel P
 

Sometimes the following codes appear in the "Last Residence" column of
the Social Security Death Index (SSDI).

(72)
(PE)
(FO)
(HC)

Rootsweb advises that these are "internal codes used by SSA and do not
mean anything to researchers. Ignore them."

My particular interest is the (PE) reference, which appears in several
cases withy no other rese\idence information. In one case, I suspect the
person may have died in Israel, but I have no specific information on
that.

Does anyone have specific information on these codes?
