Translation help needed #romania

Hello!
I just subscribed to this list-serv. I am in need of translation services. I
inherited some Romanian/Moldova letters >from family members. I was quite
excited to see our original surname before it was changed coming to America! Can
someone point me to the right direction in hopefully reading these letters?


Thank you,

Dear fellow ROM-SIGgers,

We are delighted to be able to announce that Robert Wascou has accepted
the postion as the Resource Coordinator for the ROM-SIG! This is
position that is requested for all of the SIGs, who are asked to have
one person who will coordinate all of the research projects and Project
Coordinators, of that SIG. This will centralize all of these projects
for a SIG, and make it simpler for the JewishGen teams, who can then
communicate with/through only one person.

Bob has done, and will continue to do a superlative job coordinating the
Kishinev database project for us. He is very experienced, capable and
an exceptional manager! We are very fortunate that he has agreed to
undertake this new position - and very, very grateful!

Thank you, Bob!

Re: Publishing Genealogies #general

Eve Line Blum <eve.line.blum@...>
 

I agree completely with Stan Goodman, but I want to add my twopence
with a special French comment.

In France (at least, since I don't know about other countries), many
Jewish people still are shaken up by all the events which happened
during WWII and the Shoah (just as a reminder, more than 76 000 Jews
left France to the nazi camps during the Shoah, and only 3 percent
came back after the war). I'm not a specialist and I don't know how
long it will last, but I know for sure it's still lasting even on the
second and third generations...

These people (and nobody is able to prevent that fact) still think
that *"it"* may happen again some day. They are really frightened about
leaving their name (and of course still more their genealogy) to be
published on the Internet. Internet seems very dangerous to them.
They believe that through the Internet, anything bad can arrive must
easily that it was during WWII.

One can try to explain them that nowadays, there are so many listings
everywhere (Social Security, bank accounts, various subscriptions to
numerous magazines and newspapers including Jewish ones, etc.) that
genealogy is only a very tiny part of the problem : it's to no avail.
They are anxious and nobody can't help it.

I began meeting that problem ten years ago when I began dealing with
the convoy #73 which took 878 Jewish men in deportation >from France
to the Baltic States in May 1944 : when I decided to publish the list
of these men on the Web (only names, first names, date and place of
birth), I received some mails and letters >from people who wanted me
to erase the name of their relative who was in that convoy, in
case... Of course, I refused and told them that these lists are
historical documents that can't be rubbed out. Nevertheless, it gave
rise to a lot of comments and complaints.

I even met the same problem three years ago when I decided to publish
the last known address of these 878 men... But now, since Yad Vashem
published the Pages of Testimony, some of them containing lots of
personal information, these people dare not to complain, even if they
don't agree...

The returned to Lomza where they originated after having lived in Russia but

It is assumed that they survived. Does anyone have any suggestions how to

For genealogical information about the LANDAU family of Dresden, see
the discussion in Walter Fales, "The Descendants of Wolf Fales: A
Chronicle of the Feilchenfeld Family as of June 1950" (New York,
1990). This book would certainly mention whether the LANDAU family
members were Levi'im.

A copy of "The Descendants of Wolf Fales..." is available at the
Dorot Jewish Division of the New York Public Library or at the
Center for Jewish History (both in New York), where I found this
copy. I do not recall whether "The Descendants of Wolf Fales..." was
in the Leo Baeck Collection or the collection of the American Jewish
