Soldier in Polish Army #general

Teewinot <teewinot13@...>
 

I just want to thank everyone who answered my question about finding
records for someone who was in the Polish Army at the beginning of WWII.
I apologize for not responding to each individual, but I got hit by
Hurricane Wilma, and life is not back to normal yet. (I was hit
Hurricanes Frances and Jeanne last year. The damage wasn't yet repaired
when we got hit again.) So, being on-line and doing genealogy are kind
of on the back burner for now.

Again, thanks to all who responded.

Seven-Year Initiative #lodz #poland

Saul Marks <saulmarks@...>
 

Dear Roni & Joe,

Thank you both for your interesting & informative explanation of the current
situation in the indexing of Lodz records. I have a great deal of ancestry
from Lodz, & I've been dying to see post-1901 indexes go online for several
years now. I had no idea of the Seven Year Initiative, so your posting has
made things much easier for me (& everyone else, I'm sure) to understand.

I'm sure we all appreciate the hard work you & your team have put in &
continue to put in to this task, and we all look forward to the day when
more indexes will finally go online. I'm desperate to find my
great-grandparents' marriage (GOLDBERG & TEMPELCHOF), c.1903. Do you have an
approximate date or time frame when you expect to upload the indexes
relating to the Seven Year Initiative?

Best wishes & many thanks,

Re: Lewis ROSENBLATT #general

Yehudh bn Shlmo
 

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

LARG announcement #lodz #poland

Roni S. Liebowitz
 

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.
