yizkor book coordinators needed #yizkorbooks

Joyce Field
 

Two yizkor book translation projects--Lancut, Poland, and Przemsyl,
Poland-- are idle because the project coordinators resigned and we
have not yet identified replacements. Part of the Przemsyl book has
been translated and is online at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/przemysl/przemysl.html, but a great
deal more of the book needs to be translated. None of Lancut has
been translated.

If you are interested in coordinating one of these projects, please
contact me privately so that I can explain the coordinator's role and
how you can help get these important projects rolling.

Both books are listed as fundraising projects so that donations can
be accepted to pay for a professional translator. See
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/YizkorTrans.html to make a
donation to these and other worthy yizkor book projects.

Re: Identity of men in photo taken in Birmingham, England #general

Naidia Woolf <rnwoolf@...>
 

I'm trying to determine the identity of the men in a photograph taken in
Birmingham, England in the 1950's or '60's. My father, Nathan WOOLF (who
had a men's retail clothing store on the Stratford Rd. in Birmingham for
over 40 years) is on the 2nd row, photo left. Fellow researcher Stanley
Gilinsky has already identified two of these men, namely Wolfy Bloom (front
row, 2nd >from the right) and Harold Morris, centre - middle row). An uncle
of mine (by marriage) Harold Witton is seated front row photo left.

Viewmate: VM3393 - 1/11/04 - "Do you recognize?"

I found these pix in an old family album. Am wondering whether all the men
in the picture were members of a merchant guild or Jewish club or of
members of the Singer's Hill synagogue on Snow Hill in Birmingham - the old
established conservative shul in Birmingham of which my family was old-term
members.

ViewMate - Hebrew translations needed #general

Philippe & Maria Lichtenberg <licht@...>
 

Hello all !

Could someone help me with the translation of a wedding agreement, probably
between Rajz family and Lichtenberg family
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=3389


....and a tombstone >from Bagneux cemetary, just outside Paris. It should be

Countries #general

CharlesPottins
 

Don't want to start a non-geneoogical debate but England, Wales and
Scotland do count as "countries" for some purposes (soccer for instance!);
and, more relevantly for genners, some documents distinguish between
England and Wales, as one, and Scotland. It may be as well to be aware
when checking records, or making enquiries, also because Scotland has its
own distinctive legal system and terms, and even before the Scottish
parliament was revived, many matters which the Home Office would deal with
in England Wales were dealt with by the Scottish Office. Experienced
researchers would bre able to give more specific advice on where this is
relevant.

Workers Circle in the East End #general

CharlesPottins
 

Arbeter Ring in London during 1938-1946

A student at UCL who is researching how the East End's Jewish community
responded to the Nazi persecution in Europe and arrival of refugees has asked
for help in finding sources (written or human) on the Arbeter Ring (Workers
Circle) which had its premises at Alie Street, and the Weltliche Schule which
it ran on Sunday afternoons. The period in question is >from 1938-46.Although
not strictly geneological, this research may dovetail someone's family history
and be mutually rewarding.
I've been able to introduce the researcher to a friend whose father, Itzhak
Nathani taught at the Weltliche Schule. She has also found descendents of
Isaac Goluchovski (surname changed later to Gollow). Two other names mentioned
were Solomon Joseph, who had been at a Leeds centre for refugees, and Baruch
(Barnett) Weinberg who ran a printing business in Brick Lane. If anyone who
knew them or the Ring would like to get in touch, I'll be happy to pass them on
to Sarah, who is doing this study.

Re: nickname for Therese #hungary

Prof. G. L. Esterson <jerry@...>
 

Ilona Lerman posted as follows:

"I had a great aunt named Therese. I found on the
family records >from Kis-Tata someone named Rezi about
the time of her birth. Could Rezi be nickname for or
equivalent to Therese?"

Indeed, the secular name Rezi/Resi is a nickname used in Hungary for the
Hungarian secular name Terezia. The Hungarian name Terezia corresponds to
the German secular name Therese. Both of these names, Terezia and Therese,
were popular in Hungary. So, the chances are good that Ilona has found her
great aunt Therese/Rezi.

In fact, a number of other similar linked secular names used in both
Germany and Hungary, as well as a wealth of nicknames for these two names,
are to be found in the JewishGen Given Names Data Bases for Hungary and
Germany, at < http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/GivenNames/ >. A
forthcoming update of these two GNDBs will list even more variants. In
order to see these names in the data bases, search for the names Therese,
Terezia, and Resi using Daitch-Mokotoff Soundex or Text search.

It is worthwhile remembering that any of these variants could have been
used in other archival documents, particularly those >from Hungarian
archives where secular names would be more likely to be found, rather than
linked Hebrew or Yiddish names.

Re: Triester Frau restaurant #hungary

BruceKitty@...
 

I notice that you are researching the name Sonnenschein. Did you perchance
see an
American film about the Hungarian Sonnenschein family, which was shown about
2 yrs ago.
Kitty

Moderator VK: Kitty is no doubt referring to Istvan Szabo's "Sunshine", an epic tale about a Jewish Hungarian family that spans the decades beginning with the Austro-Hungarian empire, which was originally written as a mini-series for German television. Canadian producer Robert Lantos urged Szabo to rewrite the Hungarian-language script into a shorter English-language film.


Re: Words on Birth Records #hungary

Blrosen@...
 

Hi Gary,
Beregi (or Berehi) is the name of a small town presently in the Ukraine. It is about 20 miles or so >from Berehovo (or Beregovo) which is near the Ukrainian/Hungarian border.

When Beregi was within the Hungarian borders, it was known as NagyBereg. Similarly, Berehovo was known as Beregszasz.

I visited these 2 towns in 1998 with a group of Genners because my grandmother was >from Beregi. There, in the cemetery in Beregi, I discovered the gravestones of my grandmother's siblings, my ggfather and my gggfather !! What a thrill !!
