Zalman or Wolf? #hungary

I am trying to find the name of my ggrandfather Kaufman. On his daughter's
death certificate it is listed as Wolf Lieb. Yet on a cemetary record that may
be him it is listed as Zalman Lieb Kaufman. Could this be one and the same
person? Thanks. Carol Karp

Re: [h-sig] inhabitants list for Csillagos ház, does it exist? #hungary

Peter I.Hidas <thidas@...>
 

There is a chapter in A ZSIDO BUDAPEST book (volume 2), p.522-525, on
the Jewish Houses, but there is no list there. the 1840 addresses must
be listed in the Hivatalos Kozlony or any daily newspaper published in
Budapest in mid-June of 1944.

Susanna,
I don't know the present day name for Wahrmann utca. But, all my life I've
been told that my family is somehow related to the Wahrmann's through my
paternal grandmother. Her maiden name was Kuhn (Kun) and her mother;s maiden
name was Szergal.
My grandfather was Herman Lefkovits.
Please tell me if any of this sounds familiar or ring a bell.
Thank you.

Question about Ellis Island Passenger Lists #ukraine

Gary Gershfield <gmgkpc@...>
 

I noticed a similar surname to my paternal grandfather on the Ellis Island
database >from the same town of Druzhkopol in the Ukraine.
When I scrolled down,it was stamped "Deported,"near the
passenger's name,and as,you view the information on the column line,it also
states,"In Hospital,Discharged."It also seems that the word,"Crew,"on the
top as a heading.Unfortunately,the name of the person who is listed in New
York is unfamiliar.
Has anyone ever encountered this before?Any assistance
would be greatly appreciated.

Announcing the next German Jewish History Awards #general

Arthur Obermayer <obermayer@...>
 

The German-Jewish Community History Council, GerSIG and the Berlin
Parliament are pleased to announce their Call for Nominations for the
annual awards to be given to non-Jewish Germans who have made
extraordinary contributions to preserving the Jewish history, culture,
cemeteries and synagogues in their local communities. Thousands of
Germans have carried out such activities as volunteers because they feel
it is the right thing to do - the preservation of Jewish material is one
of the few ways in which they can respond constructively to their
country's horrible past. We, as Jewish genealogists, have been the
recipients of their good work.

The deadline for submission of nominations is September 20, 2004. Many
of you previously submitted worthy nominations. Those nominees who have
already received Certificates of Commendation are prime candidates for
this year's awards, and will only require updating of the submissions.

This will be the fifth year for such awards, which will be given on
January 27, 2005, the German Holocaust Memorial Day (the anniversary of
the liberation of Auschwitz). Each awardee and their spouse will be
invited on an all expenses paid trip to Berlin to receive the award at
the Plenary Chamber of the Abgeordnetenhaus, the home of the Berlin
Parliament. The awardees will also be honored guests at the German
Bundestag memorial event on that day. The honorees will receive a
framed certificate and an honorarium to be used for the furtherance of
their work. Awardees' contributions will be described to attendees and
to the local, national and international news media.

These awards have in the past received extensive news coverage,
including The New York Times, the Associated Press, Jewish Telegraphic
Agency, and a great many German daily and weekly newspapers, as well as
specific articles in American Jewish weeklies. This past year, there
were also articles in the Washington Post, the Miami Herald, and
numerous overseas newspapers, including Ha'aretz and the Jerusalem
Post. There will also be an article in the Summer 2004 issue of Stammbaum.

This provides Jews throughout the world with the opportunity to
recognize and honor German individuals who, in many cases, have devoted
their lifetimes to such important endeavors. If you know someone who
may be appropriate for nomination, further information -- including the
Call for Nominations and profiles of previous award winners and the jury
-- can be obtained at:

http://www.obermayer.us/award

You may obtain a hard copy of the Call for Nominations by sending an
email to:

germanaward@hotmail.com

or a letter to the German-Jewish Community History Council, 239 Chestnut
Street, West Newton, MA 02465 USA or to Hendrik Kuebler, Referat
Protokoll, Abgeordnetenhaus von Berlin, D-10111 Berlin-Mitte Germany.

Remember that the deadline for submission of nominations is September
20, 2004.

Re: JRI-Poland Introduces Express Service for Ordering Records #galicia

Mark Halpern
 

My apologies.

Yesterday, I made an announcement about the new Express ordering
service and said this service applied to three Polish State
Archives (PSA) branches. Although JRI-Poland and PSA have every
intention of including Lomza in this Pilot program, I was
premature in announcing their inclusion.

At the current time only Bialystok and Lublin are included in the
Pilot program. Lomza will be added at a later date and this will
be announced on this forum.

Re: Russian Army/Riki Zunk #general

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Riki,

The following website (mentioned recently in this forum) has some
interesting information about Jews & the history of their service in the
Russian Army. Go to

http://www.slavweb.com/eng/Russia/history-e.html

& click on History of the Jews.

One of the articles gives dates when Jews were required to serve the 30
(25?) years (and how young the kids could be!), and when that law was changed.

One of my Slonimer great uncles served in the Russian army as a tailor, and
was discharged after not a very lengthy term of service. Family lore says
he left (circa 1899) because he was going to be called up again.
