A JewishGen win/win project #poland

Carol W. Skydell <cskydell@...>
 

You have always sought a JewishGen that meets your own needs, a JewishGen
that keeps the services free to you the user, the researcher of your
personal Jewish heritage. You require a JewishGen that's committed to
finding and presenting projects that ensure a win/win situation.

"Published by JewishGen" is just such a project. You've told us by your
enthusiastic response so far that "Preserving our Litvak Heritage...A
History of 31 Jewish Communities in Lithuania" by Josef Rosin was the
correct book to launch this new project.

In addition to being a monumental work of 736 pages with over 500
photographs, some >from private family collections, there is an extensive
forward written by the eminent scholar Professor Dov Levin. Each chapter is
devoted exclusively to one of the 31 Lithuanian communities, a list too
lengthy to mention here, but a visit to the JewishGenMall will identify
them for you.

To make this another win/win situation, you can purchase Rosin's book at a
40% discount, but only up until April 30th, and only through the
JewishGenMall. All proceeds >from sales at the Mall flow into the JewishGen
General Fund which helps defray the mounting operating expenses. So, every
time you purchase any product >from the JewishGenMall you are helping us
meet our financial needs. The more JewishGen benefits >from your purchases,
the longer we can keep >from becoming a fee-based service, something
JewishGen has been trying so hard to avoid since it first began.

If Lithuania is ***your*** ancestral home, Rosin's expanded history offers
you extensive material >from archival sources as well as personal memoirs.
It is truly a picture of the life and times in these communities >from their
early beginnings and ending with the Nazi's attempts to annihilate all of
Lithuanian Jewry. For any researcher who is looking for information about
Lithuania, especially about these 31 towns, this book is a personal
treasure. It will also be a treasure for your children and your
grandchildren.

Whatever country is part of your research interests, please take a look at
all the material you will find in the mall. Just select that country >from
the drop-down search list in the TOPICS field. You will find an
extraordinary collection at very competitive prices. If Josef Rosin's book
is of interest, click on the picture of the book cover to read more about
it and place your order at the pre-publication 40% discounted price which
is only $52.80, plus S&H. You can buy as many copies as you need for
other family members at this heavily discounted price.

For a real win/win situation, make the JewishGen Mall your first stop when
looking to purchase Jewish-interest books, software, CDs, or
videos. You'll save money on most purchases, and you'll help keep all of
the valuable JewishGen services free. Visiting www.jewishgenmall.org will
truly be a win/win situation!

Feuer Family Roots in Radomysl #galicia

Mike & Anne Beaudreau <beaudreau@...>
 

Hi!
I was hoping someone out there would have any information on Feuer from
Radomysl, Galicia. My great-grandfather's name was Joseph Feuer. He
arrived in this country sometime in the mid-1880s. He owned a company
in New York called Robbins Express. His father, David Feuer (along with
his wife, Chaje) arrived at Ellis Island in 1898. They stated they were
from Radomysl. I also had the Hebrew on my great-grandfather Joseph's
gravestone translated. It reads: Yosef son of David the Kohan. He is
buried at Mt. Hebron in NYC. His wife's name was Dora Grossman. I
cannot find where David and Chaje (Ida) are buried.

Any help would be greatly appreciated since I seem to have hit a brick
wall.

Thanks!

Help needed with destination on manifest #general

Vincent Delgato
 

Dear Genners:

I might have a breakthrough of my "brickwall" and need a little guidance. I
have found an entry in a passenger manifest >from Liverpool to Philadelphia
in 1904 that could be my Uncle Lou SCHAFFER. His is listed as 16 years old,
which fits. With him is listed a woman, Tili (don't know who she is yet), age
37 with an occu. of wife. Louis's occupation is "traveller" (sic), which
would fit because he was left behind in the old country as a baby and now is
traveling to meet up with his family. The manifest says that they stayed in
Newcastle of Tyne for 6 months, which fits the family story that he was sick
and had to spend 6 months in England before coming to the USA.

Here is the question: they were going to a "cousin", Mr. Shmuckler at 227
E. 69 St., New York even though the family was in Buffalo at this time. Does
anyone know anything about this name and address? There are added notes to
the manifest such as a note of "son" with an arrow to show that Louis was
Tili's son, but this is not true. Also noted is the following: Invited Dec 4
1904 (s/b 1903)- Cous there many years, both talk English.

Another coincidence is that Louis's Uncle was married in Buffalo in 1913 by
a Rev. Schmuckler which I am still trying to find information about. Any
help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated...

Thank you.

was thinking about the purple heart. The wound is mentioned--date and

war and Wilson's promises, so maybe he never applied, but I would like to
find out about it.
Also, are the unit histories available anywhere? Officers were supposed to
write up every engagement, so I've always hoped it would be possible to
read about the actions that relatives participated in (their units are
mentioned in the discharge paper). Another uncle claimed he only guarded
prisoners, but at the same time he was gassed. WW I veterans, who are
mostly gone now, were always reluctant to talk about their experiences.

I recently posted information, that moravian famillianten books should be in
national Archive in Prague. I have to take back. The information I got from
other source in Prague, was apparently wrong. I have been now informed from
the Archive directly as follows:

Quote in poor translation

"We can inform that familliant books are in national Archive under separate
trust, however only Bohemians. For the Moravians ones does not exist
complete collection, sometimes the books can be found together with material
from the various estates, where the Jewish families lived.
In your case it is recommended to try the Country Archive in Brno or local
archive in Trebic."

Unquote

Just for information I was looking for material conc. Police, which is
nearby Trebic.

I am sorry to have transmitted wrong information
