Ancestry.com will let you find a person via its index, online, for free.
It will not let you see the Census page image without a subscription.
You can see the image without cost, however, at the LDS Family History
Centers. Also, if you are in or near Washington, DC you can find the
microfilm images without cost at the National Archives. I assume that
the regional Archive branches have a similar capability.

Other options are http://www.familysearch.org , or your local library.
Some libraries have access onsite to Census Images; others let you
access them >from home, without cost.

I believe that you can access that 1880 index at the LDS website as well. It
has always been free. You will be able to see all of the neighbors as well
as the individual you are searching. There are no images available to view
just the index. The website is http://www.familysearch.org

Suwalki-Lomza BOF meeting scheduled during Las Vegas Conference #poland

Lillian Faffer
 

The Suwalki Lomza Birds of a Feather meeting has been scheduled on Tuesday
July 12th in Las Vegas during the 25th Annual International Conference on
Jewish Genealogy. Researchers are welcome to bring lunch with them to
this meeting which will be held during the lunch break.

The meeting will cover

1.an update on recently completed indexing projects as well as projects
in progress for these areas by JRI-Poland and other groups of which we
are aware.

2. self introductions by each attendee by name with a brief statement of
the towns and families they are researching

3. sharing of research successes and problems as time permits.

I would appreciate hearing >from those researchers who are planning on
attending this meeting so that the conference assignment committee can
reserve a room of the appropriate size for our meeting.

We are fortunate that a crunch for space at the conference has given us
this opportunity to have an extended period for our meeting and wish to
acknowledge the cooperation of the conference chairwomen responsible for
scheduling BOF meetings and calendar for helping to make this meeting
possible.

I noticed on a recent trip to Prague that a lot of the old buildings,

in this style on the front. If any members of this Discussion Group
live in Prague, they may be able to help you.

For Warsaw, the SIG team have actually put the equivalent address
numbering system on line, as a search facility in Jewish Gen.

Re: Tashkent during WWII #general

Mathilde Tagger <tagger@...>
 

Hello,

I didn't hear about the factories, I heard about the family side of the
story.As the Nazis invaded somehow trains were made available to evacuate
the citizens around Litin and Kalinovka in Podolia, Vinniza Ukraine. I
don't know if all went to Tashkent, or to that in general area. They
traveled days to get there.
After the war, some returned, and some went to other places and some
stayed there for a number of year.
And then there is the story of the elders who said they were too old for
the trip and told their children to go and they would await their fate.
----------->
I also know that while the Germans began to invade Poland, thousands of Jews
fled eastward to Russia. They were taken to Russian internment camps in
Siberia.
They have been released when the army of Andrews was formed.
Many took that opportunity to leave Siberia. The train stopped in Tashkent.
Some of these Polish Jews tried to find there a place to live and a job.
Others continued southwards to Persia (Iran of today). After a while in
Teheran, Iran, and via Iraq and Jordan they finally reached Jerusalem. It
was in mid 1942.

There is a Hebrew book deposited at Yard Vase Library telling the whole
story of a family >from Krakow, Poland to Tel Aviv via Siberia, Tashkent,
Teheran and Jerusalem. It was written by Irena Pikes.

Todah Rabah Dave Fox #belarus

Shael and Myrna Siegel <myrna.s@...>
 

Dear Belarus SIG members

I would be remiss if I did not add my own laudatory comments to the many
that have already been made on behalf of Dave Fox. I personally can attest
that he deserves all (and more) of the praises he has received. I want to
thank Dave for times he shared his expertise and wisdom with all of us in
the Belarus SIG. His acquired knowledge about Belarus, his well organized
mind, his love and dedication to genealogy, his computer skills and mild
manner are among his many assets.

I wish Dave good luck in whatever he does and hope he enjoys his new found
time with Cindy, his children and grandchildren. >from a selfish point of
view, now that he will have time to work on his own tree, I look forward to
hearing that he has found Cindy's family connection to Molchad, Belarus, my
ancestral town.

POW camps in England #general

Rose Feldman <rosef@...>
 

More of a story - but interesting. My Father was serving with the US army -
medical corps in England. There were Russian soldiers that were POWs. The
Allied forces had "released" them >from German camps, I believe and brought
them to England. One day someone in command found out that my father had
been talking to them. My father was born in the Ukraine 1906, immigrated to
Palestine around 1923 and then went to the States in 1939. My father told me
that when they found out he spoke "the language", they took him to do radio
broadcasts (I don't know if in Russian or Ukranian) to the various groups of
Russian soldiers they had released.

Lozni in Molin( ?) Gubernia - GOTTLIEB, GARFIELD; Kursk and Bialystok, NEIFACH, NAYFACK, GOLD #general

Alexandra Alznauer <petiealznauer@...>
 

My uncle whose surname is NAYFACK was born Hillel NEIFACH (Hilel with one
"l" in Ellis Island's ship manifest record, August 2, 1911). On my uncle's
Ellis Island record it lists Lozni as the place of birth of his mother,
Ida. Place of Birth as Lozni. It also lists her Relative's Address in the
country she last lived in as Leizer GARFIELD, Lozni Gub. Molin. [Gubernia
Molin].The name was actually GOTTLIEB. Ida's brother came to America around
the same time as "Max" and Ida Neifach (changed to Nayfack. The brother
changed GOTTLIEB to GARFIELD. I can not locate a shtetl like Lozni or a
gubernia called Molin (I keep thinking Volhyn).

On the ship's manifest Hilel and his sister, Dine (later changed to Diane)
are listed as born in Kursk. On the 1920 Census for Brooklyn, NY Max is
listed as born in Korsk (with an "o" not a "u") as are Hilel and Dina. The
mother, Ida, is listed as being born in Kiev on the 1920 census.The family
has always insisted that they are Galician but at the same time they insist
they are >from Kursk. I have spoken with my uncle about this more than once
and also with his younger brother (by 12 years) who was born in the US and
is still alive. Maybe only the Gottliebs were >from Galicia and then they
moved to Kiev? Would they have then referred to themselves as >from Galicia
for generations? Where is Lozni? Where is Molin Gubernia? Or is it Volyn
Gubernia?

I am in correspondence with another large NEIFACH family in the US. Israel
NEIFACH (who changed his name to Henry GOLD) came in the 1920's >from
Sokolka, Poland - 26 km >from Bialystok. Can anyone help me make sense of
this? Where should I be researching for 19th and early twentieth century
records- Galicia or Ukraine? My Uncle Will and his brother have both told
me that their father "Max" was raised by an uncle because Max's parents died
when they were in synagogue and it was set on fire during a pogram. Somehow
this sounds more like the Ukraine than Galicia to me.

If anyone can help me figure out the Lozni, Moln puzzle and point me in the
right research direction I would appreciate it.
