Recognition of Dave #belarus

alanmlevitt@...
 

While I don't know him, his work just allowed me - in less than a
couple of weeks - to locate information and photographs about my
ancestors in a little shetl in Belarus. In just that amount of time,
since I joined the SIG - when I put out a call for information about
that town - I have received emails >from people in Israel, New York, New
Jersey, Palm Desert, Australia, and other locations. Much was of
tremendous value to me and my many relatives. How much is that worth?
How much is it worth finding information about your great
grandparents? How much is it worth to be able to tell our children and
grandchildren just a little bit more about our/their history? That's
why I just made a donation to the operation of this website. And
although I have no idea about any issues that caused his departure,
wow, am I grateful for his work. Alan Levitt, Chevy Chase, Maryland

Howard Orenstein
 

On page 580 of the Pultusk Yizkor Book, Yehoshua LICHTENSTEIN remembers
(the names of) various relatives who died in the Holocaust. Some of
these may be my relatives as well. First, does anyone know Yehoshua
LICHTENSTEIN and whether he, his wife (?) or his children (?) are still
alive? Second, does anyone know of relatives of Itka LEIBMAN (lamed yod
yod bet mem alef nun), who was born ORENSTEIN? Third, does anyone know
of relatives of Malka LICHTENSTEIN (nee ORENSTEIN), who was the wife
of Yaakov (Yankel) David ORENSTEIN?

EVIEN / EVEN Family #general

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

When you do not know for sure where your family is >from specifically, it is
usually helpful to first check shtetlfinder for the correct spelling of the
shtetl and then proceed to search the All-Lithuania Database before
proceeding any further. You can search by both the family name and/or the
shtetl you think they are from.

The EVIEN / EVEN family is not necessarily >from Kaunas or Anyksciai as there
were many members >from Birziai, Kupiskis, Subacius, and Viesintos, etc.

So, remember, check out your available resources on JewishGen including the
JGFF before posting and you will be able to better query people on the
digests.

Francine Miller, London, UK

Yes absolutely. Although it was not common people did go back and forth
a bit. Also Jewish immigrants in America sometimes went back to Poland
to visit. Often to visit the relatives who remained behind, and to visit
the graves of loved ones like parents. Also sometimes the Landsmen
organizations sent representatives back to the Shtetl to establish aide
projects. I have a photo of a relative of mine by marriage and his young
son >from Chicago who are visiting Zabludow Poland in 1927 as
representatives of the Chicago Zabludover Verein. They are helping to
set up a low cost loan association.

Re: Missing parents on death certificates #general

I have Death Certificates ... issued in Scotland 1950 & 1962. Nether
certificate has any notation of their
parents names, just a strike through. Is this a common occurrence with
those escaping / hiding the past ?
In my experience, death certificates in Scotland almost always have the
names of both parents, It depends on who registered the death. Sometimes, if
it was a friend or neighbour, they didn't know the names of the parents.
Otherwise, I'm sure the clerk would require the details to be stated.

Watermarks #austria-czech

Dubois family <family@...>
 

I would like to draw the attention of those members of this SIG, who live in
or near London, to the showing, on March 30, at the National Film Theatre,
of Watermarks, the film about the Jewish sports club Hakoah, Vienna, in the
1930s. After the film there will be a question and answer session with
Yaron Zilberman, the director of Watermarks, and with Ann-Marie Pisker, one
of the swimmers of Hakoah, who features in the film. This film is being
shown as part of the New Films >from Israel season.

Searching ROSINKO family of Daugavpils, and when they became ROSEN #general

Lois Rosen
 

Searching information on Abraham and Yetta ROSINKO >from Daugavpils.
They had 8 children. Son Leib, born 1892, left for NYC about 1913.
He played the violin. He became Louis Rosen. The other children were
Feiga -> US , Harry-> US, Tamara-> England, Channa and Rachel->
Germany, Schmuel->???, and another brother->???. I can find no
records for ROSINKO on Ellis Island site. Name change usually came
after arrival in US, but could Leib ROSINKO have become Louis ROSEN
before departure? He is listed on his original internal travel document
as Bin-Leib Abramov ROZINKO. Any insight or family ties?

Does anyone know how to get a good map of the City of Chicago? I have
tried thru AAA in New York with no success.
For a good online current map of Chicago, look at maps.google.com .

For some historic maps, check out the American Memory collection at the
Library of Congress (sorry for the ugly URL):
http://memory.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/S?ammem/gmd:@FILREQ(@field(SUBJ+@od1(United+States--Illinois--Chicago+))+@FIELD(COLLID+citymap))

I found the one of the 1916 Business District to be very detailed, as well
as being very stylish.
