Yad VaShem does not remove Pages of Testimony.

Don't search in "Testimonies,"

Rather, go to their "CENTRAL DATABASE OF SHOAH VICTIMS' NAMES" and
type in the relative's name. A few with the same name may come up. If
a Page of Testimony was submitted, it will be easy to see.

Go to http://yadvashem.org/
Touch "Digital Collections"
Click on the first line in the digital collections, it says: "Shoah Names Database".

The direct link to the Shoah Names Database is:
https://yvng.yadvashem.org/

A search of the Yad Vashem site for "pages of testimony" yields relevant
results in the first result.
So does a search for that term in Google.

after Warsaw conference #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Dear Bessarabers,

Our International Jewish Genealogical conference ended in Warsaw and first I want to thank many
people who came to our sessions, ShareFare, Bessarabia Dinner, and more.

We had a large number of very interesting sessions and events. As I promised all slides, and texts
from every session is going to be put online. I am travelling a bit, now in Krakow and next week in
Budapest, but after that material >from the conference be available for everyone.

Here are a few highlights >from the sessions. There was a great interest in Moldovan Archive session.
We were out of seas at the auditorium with about 32-34 people.
I understand the interest, because it gives hope for many to get more data of different kind, which
exist at the archives in Kishinev. Also we had a good number of people at two other sessions, where
our guest speaker - Sergei Daniliuk, resident of Moldova, presented. It was first time Sergei came to
our conferences and it was definitely a success, and I hope that we will see and hear about his research
in a future.

One of the wonderful discoveries he made is that he found an evidence that Jews lived in the South of
Bessarabia already in 15 century. It is in his town, Kaushany, where he lives, and where my parents lived
before the World War II, was a Jewish cemetery with tombstones dating >from 15 century. The cemetery
unfortunately does not exist, but it is written in Church Journal in Kishinev that such Jewish cemetery
existed in Kaushany at the beginning of 20 century.

Also I offered at the conference person sessions with everybody, and Sergei offered translation from
Romanian and Russian, and some people used it.

All the best,
Yefim Kogan

Family of Jules DAN Contact Information #general

Sheldon Dan <sheldan1955@...>
 

I am trying to get in touch with the family members of my great-uncle, Jules
DAN, brother of my grandfather, Solomon DAN.

Jules was born in 1894 in Memphis, TN. He married Isabel (Essie) BRODKEY in
1918 in Omaha, NE. They had two sons, Myron, born in 1920 in Omaha, and
Elliott, born in 1922 in Los Angeles.

The family lived in Los Angeles, where Jules worked in newspaper advertising.
Jules died at age 38 in 1932 in Los Angeles, Essie died in 1976.

Myron was married to the artist Virginia Hill Dan and had one daughter, Sherri,
born in 1944. He later married Mary Ann FISHER. Myron died in 2003 in Glendale,
CA.

Elliott was married to Anita Jeannette STONE and had a son, Michael, born in
1944. He later married Ann LUBELL and they became the parents of Stephen, born
in 1958. Elliott died in 1988 in Los Angeles.

I would like to know more about Jules and this family, since I have no knowledge
about this branch of the family. The family genealogist had contacted them many
years ago. If anyone has contact information regarding this family, please
contact me.

Town in Ukraine - Karloveke? #general

HELENE KENVIN <hekenvin@...>
 

My husband's aunt said that the ZEITSEV part of the family lived in Karloveke, but
there is no match to that name in the Jewishgen Town Finder.

Does anyone have any ideas? Other branches of the family lived in Kiev and
Kremenchug, so I suspect it might be a town near one of those cities.

With thanks,

Determining Death Date #general

Allan Karan
 

Greetings All,

I am looking for a program that can approximate the death date based on
year and country of birth. This would be calculated at the country's
longevity rate at the time of birth. Focus would be Eastern European
between 1700-2000. Other additional information maybe birth/age of
chidden.

Thanks,

Researching:

akaran1@hotmail.com

MODERATOR NOTE: An estimate of death dates drawn >from averages might put an
individuals's age at death in historical and demographic context, but it would
not provide a reasoned assessment for an individual's age at death. There are
too many variables. In addition, accurate figures >from specific historic times,
places and populations would be difficult if not impossible to reconstruct due to
record loss in many locations. Because of naming patterns, most Ashkenazi Jewish
genealogists (short of finding a death or other associated record) provide death
estimates based upon the earliest dates of birth for children who appear to be
named after the dead individual.

We suggest that further discussion of Allan's quest should be done privately or
on a forum dedicated to genealogy software solutions.

BITTON family - Success Story. Thanks to all who helped #unitedkingdom

Carole Shaw
 

Just a week since I started posting re finding relatives of Joel BITTON on
Jewish and General genealogy sites, on behalf of a sick cousin, I can report
that the sought family members have now been found and contacted. I'm
posting this to all sites I originally posted to, so apologies if you see
this more than once.

All this is due to the diligent and persistent efforts of genners, who I'd
like to thank here, in particular those >from JewishGen and the Facebook
1841 - 1939 & Beyond Genealogy Discussion Group.

To fill in the back story and update those who enquired and sent their best
wishes:

My husband's cousin was hit by a motorbike while crossing the road near
parliament on Friday 13 July (ominous eh?). She's trim 81, who looks and acts
60 and still teaches singing. She sustained multiple fractures to her
arm, leg, pelvis and neck, plus possible brain damage >from a head injury. So
severe were her injuries that the police were outside her bed area all the
first day and part of the next, in case it became a manslaughter case or
she regained consciousness enough to give a statement.

She has been in an induced coma and on life support in intensive care for
most of the past 4 weeks and is only now regaining full consciousness. She
has had a tracheostomy and can't speak but does show her understanding of
what we are saying by nodding and shaking her head and laughing at my awful
jokes. Like when other cousins, friends of Corbyn, tried to get us set up
together almost 40 years ago! Those in UK and Jewish will understand the
irony. If the details intrigue you, PM me privately!

We won't know the full extent any brain damage, if at all, for a while.
And we don't know if she will be able to live alone on recovery. Otherwise
it will be a long haul but signs are positive.

Thanks once again for everyone's help. It shows the power of the internet
and genners pulling together.
