LAZAR - Montreal #general

DAGAG123@...
 

Dear Genners,

While in Israel this past February, I met with my Mother's second cousins
and discovered a new sister of my ggm who evidently left Romania in 1906 and
went to Montreal.

Descendants are supposedly still living in Montreal. Would someone in
Montreal be kind enough to help me with a lookup.

Please reply to me directly.
Thank you,

Missing Identity of child survivors of Holocaust #general

Eva Floersheim
 

The website Missing Identity presents more than 60 child survivors of
Holocaust who are still searching for information about themselves and
their families. http://www.jewishgen.org/missing-identity
Many of these live here in Israel, some in North America, but several
still live in Poland. This last group often did not know about their
Jewish background till just a few years ago.

Perhaps you will be able to help these young survivors after reading the
profiles?
Perhaps you will be able to connect them back to their original Jewish
families?

Thank you in advance.

Sincerely,

TIMONER #general

David Edelman <pappapeach@...>
 

Dear Group;
Do any of you know any TIMONER? I do not see this name listed in the
Family Finder, so I am hoping someone might happen to know of this
family. Murray Timoner, born late 1920's New York, son of Benjamin and
Rose, is my father's cousin.
If this sounds at all familiar to anyone, I will be very happy to hear
from you, privetly of course.
Thank you very much,
David Edelman,
San Francisco.

Re: The Name Yvonne #general

hennynow
 

In response to Julius Cohen's query, "I am looking for the origins of the
name Yvonne. Is it a common Jewish name or is there a Jewish male or
female equivalent?"

It is a common "French" name. Yvonne is the feminine form of the name Yves
or Yvon. These first names were common in Bretagne - or, in English,
Brittany - the northwestern part of France. The people of Bretagne had
their own language. If memory serves me right, Yves and Yvonne are the
equivalent of the French names Jean and Jeanne.

My favorite doll in Belgium, when I was a four year old, in 1928, was named
Yvonne.

JGS Pittsburgh May Meeting #general

Rae M. Barent <RaeBarent@...>
 

JGS Pittsburgh May Meeting
Date: Monday, May 16, 2005
Time: 7:30 P.M.
Place: Rudolph Family Holocaust Ctr. Of United Jewish Federation
JCC Building
5738 Darlington Rd.
Pittsburgh, PA 15217

The subject of our next meeting will be Jewish Genealogy Research in
Poland. As those who previewed the Centennia software demonstrated at
our last meeting noted, the borders of Poland shifted often. At one
point the country ceased to exist. But throughout these changes,
Poland was home to the largest Jewish community in the world for
over 300 years and many of our ancestors came >from this area. We can't
all make the trip back to explore the shtetls of Poland,
but we are fortunate that Bob Zavos was able to serve as
our surrogate. For our next meeting, Bob will talk about his recent
trip to Poland which included a visit to Warsaw and the Jewish
Historical Institute, and to the Jewish Cemetery which is
the largest Jewish cemetery in Europe and one of the few that is
almost totally intact. Bob was also able to conduct research at the
Polish State Archives and finished his Polish experience with a trip to
Suwalki province.

While this program will be of great interest to our members with Polish
roots, I urge you all to attend as it promises to be both stimulating
and rewarding. Come early for coffee, cake and conversation.

Is anyone able to direct me to a web site which I thought was the Struma
Foundation but which I now cannot find my way back to. It contained
contact details for David Stoliar, a survivor of the SS Struma sinking
who was the boyfriend at that time of one of the victims, Ilse Lothringer.
Perhaps the web site of which you have written is the one where the
passengers of the SS Struma are listed:

THE TIMES DIGITAL Newspaper ARCHIVE Online #unitedkingdom

Caroline <cfb@...>
 

Hi,
I used the TIMES DIGITAL NEWSPAPER online archive for the week's free trial
and found realms of articles which were a huge help and revelation to me.
However, I'm now trying to find out how to access it via subscription or at
a local library and it doesn't seem possible.

Libraries don't yet have a searchable digital version, only microfilms with
indexes, so you can't do word or phrase searches. The Times online website,
only has the previous 10 years archive available, not back to 1780. Gale,
the company which made it available for a week, only seems to deal with
major companies, not private individuals - although I'm still hoping they
might respond to e-mails to them.

Does anyone have any other suggestions - it's really the earlier archives
that I'm after and in a searchable form - not indexed.

With many thanks,
Caroline Faunce-Brown

Re: Permission for marriage #galicia

Perhaps a strange question...

Does anyone know if someone who was born on Russian soil--but emigrated
during a brief period when Poland covered this territory--would be
considered a Polish citizen by the present-day Polish government? My
grandfather lived in what is the present-day Ukraine, but emigrated to the
US with a Polish passport (which we still have in our possession) in 1921.
