Dnepropetrovsk Archives Contact Info Needed #ukraine

Paul and Debbie Weiss <ancesthntr@...>
 

My paternal GF and at least 2 previous generations of his family lived in
Dnepropetrovsk. I have hit a "brick wall" regarding BMD records and even
surnames for female ancestors but, according to Miriam Weiner's Routes to
Roots website, the Dnepropetrovsk Archives have these records. However,
the website only directs one to the Kiev Archives, and a search on
multiple web browsers didn't give me any hits for an English site for the
Dnepropetrovsk Archives. Does anyone know how to contact the
Dnepropetrovsk Archives?

Thanks, in advance, for any help offered.

Re: Megaleh Amukos & R' KEIDANOWER #rabbinic

LR <lreich@...>
 

A recently posted brief note of mine regarding these two great
rabbis has resulted in a deluge of private enquiries >from people
researching their descent >from the former. As I pointed out then,
the Megaleh Amukos had many children. I think it may have been
eight. This being so, researching beyond the second generation is
difficult.

I do not have the capacities of sufficient strength and time to
undertake private research. Nor do I possess all the private library
resources I covet. The information posted previously came mainly
from the following Hebrew works. (There is a lot more printed
material available for serious researchers)

1) Marganisa Shapiro by Chaim DovBerish Shapira Drobytch (spelling?)
16 pp 1899.

2) Klilas Yofey by Dembitzer - a classic source with a separately
published USA index.

3) Mishpochot Atikot BeYisroel by Yaakov Leib Shapiro - Tel Aviv
1982. This last work, although attractively presented, is extremely
prone to error and should mainly be regarding as a pointer to
further research.

in Prague and was later Chief Rabbi of Frankfurt am Main where he died
in 1740.

They came to Argentina around 1906. I hope anyone

Finding Holocaust Survivors (many paths lead to Czestochowa, Poland) #general

Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

In searching for Holocaust survivors (or victims),
I often find that it is necessary to search far
from a person's original home town. For others who
might be searching, please note this regarding
Czestochowa, Poland:

Nearly 5000 persons are listed in the Index of
Prisoners in the Hasag Pelcery Labor Camp in
Czestochowa (Kartoteka wieznio obozu pracy Hasag
Pelcery w Czestochowie). Each person is listed along
with his/her place of birth (Miejsce urodzenia),
residence in 1939 (Miejsce zam. w 1939 r), and
place sent >from (Skad przybyl do obozu; may have
been >from one of the other Hasag slave-labor camps).
I am surprised to find that over 300 different
towns are listed, many very far >from Czestochowa:
