<<We are going to Belarus in September and want to visit the Bielski Otriad
inthe Nalibaki Forest. ...>>

The online Novogrodek Exhibition http://www.novogrudek.co.uk/ compiled
largely by Jack Kagan, a survivor who was with the Bielski partisans and has
written two books on the area, has details.
<< In the 1990's Jack Kagan was responsible for putting up a number of
memorials to those who were killed by the Nazis in Novogrudek.
Those memorials are now a permanent part of the town's heritage. Novogrudek
today is learning to remember it's past >>

I will send you Jack's email privately.

Zygmund Leisten #general

sulamitb <sulamitb@...>
 

Dear Gens,
I am looking for Zygmund LEISTEN, son of Samuel LEISTEN and Elka RAPPAPORT,
born 1900 in Zakopane. He studied law at the Jagellonian University in
Krakow during the years 1920-1921.
I also found his name on a list of survivors.
If somebody has any information about that person or his family, I will be
glad to hear about it.
Thank you for your help.

Fw: Naturalization Petitions and Declarations #general

Stephenson <graysgrandma@...>
 

Does anyone know to whom I would request a copy of a Naturalization
Petition? I have the Microfilm ID # and the Record Group # for the National
Archives and I have the Certificate # and the Petition #. But, I don't know
where to send the request or who I should call?

The petition was filed in 1917 by my grandfather in the Southern District
Court of New York. The NYC Archives web site said that all Naturalization
records are at the National Archives in Washington DC. I searched the
National Archives web site to try to find an address or phone # to request a
copy, but I could not find that information.

Any help would be appreciated.

Rabbi Georg WILDE obituary #germany

Irene Newhouse <einew@...>
 

My granduncle, Rabbi Dr. Georg Wilde, Rabbi in Magdeburg for almost 30
years, to 1938, died in England on April 9, 1949. I think he may have had
an obituary in the "Association of Jewish Refugees Information", to which I
don't have access. Is there someone who has access to this publication and
is willing to find this obituary for me?

You won't just be helping me - the Centrum Judaicum in Berlin is trying to
compile biographies of all the Rabbis who served in the field in World War
I. Dr. Wilde was a Field Rabbi. Thanks!

Unidentified place name in Hebrew inscription #germany

Bernhard Purin <bernhard_purin@...>
 

Unidentified place name

I'm just working on the Hebrew inscription of a brass hanukkah lamp but
I did not succeed in identifying the place name. The insription read as below:

"Belongs to the Hewrah kaddisha of the Holy Community of (...)
in the year 400 (1640)"

The Hebrew name of the place reads:

shin / resh / he / alef / nun / waw / waw / yud / lamed

I checked several sources like "ShtetlSeeker" but couldn't find any
place name with a similar spelling. The end of the place's name "...wil"
could refer to Southwest Germany, Alsace or Switzerland but any attempts
to identify this place were without success.

On the base of the lamp the members of the hewrah are listed:

Zew bar Eliezer Segal
Eliezer bar Abraham
Chaim bar Abraham
Menachem bar Zwi Segal
Sina bar Eliahu
Nachshu (?) bar Schmuel
Eli bar Abraham Schatz
Moshe bar (?)
Itzchak bar Moshe Segal
Simaon bar Nathan
Arie bar (?) Katz
Simon bar Yonah Segal
Jitzchak bar Eli

Any suggestions regarding the place name are highly welcome!

Hungarian translation - tombstone #hungary

Laura Ma'oz <pedocare@...>
 

I just posted to Viewmate a photo of a tombstone written in Hebrew and
Hungarian. The Hebrew is clearly Chaya, daughter of Tzvi. The Hungarian
gives what appears to be two totally different names. Can anyone tell me how
these names relate to Chaya? I assume that at least one of the names is
Chaya's Hungarian name. This is for the JOWBR project. Thanks for any help
you can give me.

The direct address is:

guide/translator in Kosice in Agust #hungary

I have tried, unsuccessfully, to reach Marta Gyoriova, head of the Kosice
branch of
The Association of Jewish Women in Slovakia. She had been helpful to a
fellow genner in the past and I was hoping she could connect me with a
translator/assistant/guide for my research there this August. Several attempts at online
email addresses have gone unanswered.

Can anyone please recommend a contact person that I can E-MAIL to make
arrangements before I get there? I have a lot of research to do and graves to
visit and I know I will need help accomplishing this.
thanks.......
