Do you know any Jewish genealogist who lives in or
visits the Berkshires? The Western Massachusetts Jewish
Genealogy Society usually meets in Hampshire, Hampden,
and Franklin County, but we would like to help those in
nearby Berkshire County, Massachusetts to hold meetings
and events. If you know of anyone please let me know.

By the way, we are co-sponsoring a lecture by Ron Arons
"Using the Internet to Find Anything and Anyone".
Mr Arons is a seasoned genealogist and lecturer.
The lecture will be at the National Yiddish Book Center
in Amherst on October 14 at 7:30.

Schenker Birth Certificates #general

Larry Schenker <lpsca@...>
 

Any help and suggestions in the below matter will be greatly
appreciated.

I would like to locate and obtain a copy of the birth
certificates of both my father and my uncle. I know
that my father (Jankal) was born on June 8, 1904 and my
uncle (Gimann) was born on March 1, 1906. I know
that their parents were Josef (born between 1882 - 1884) and
Ciwze (no maiden name know, born between 1878 - 1882).
Josef and Ciwze were married between 1902 - 1903.

Two major facts are not very clear:
1- Where were my father and my uncle born?
. Brestz-Litovski, Russia where their Ellis Island
records indicate.
Also the 1920 United States Federal Census records
indicate that they were born in Brestz-Litovski, Russia.
You can see the actual census records by going to the
below web site:
http://community.webshots.com/user/schenkerfamilyhistory
. Minsk, Russia a town that has been mentioned as a
possible birth site
. Pinsk, Russia another town that has been mentioned
as a possible birth site
2- What was there Surname at birth and how was it spelled?
. Surnames with the same Schenker Daitch-Mokotoff soundex are:
Cenzer, Cenzor
Junker
Schanker, Schantzer, Schencker, Schmitzer, Schniker,
Schnitzer, Senzer, Shenker, Singer Yanker Zanger, Zinger
. Also was their Surname even Schenker. There has been
some mention by my father in the last year of his life,
but never confirmed, that his father Josef's name was
not Schenker but really Tenenbaum (or some
similarly sounding name). As the story goes, Josef was a Russian
dissident who had to escape >from the Tzar's police and
army during the uprisings and civil disturbances in the
early 1900's - and that before he left Russia in or
about 1906 he changed his name >from Schenker to
Tenenbaum. There are no records here in the United States
to indicate that this is anything more than a possible story.

Thanks again. Any help or suggestion will be greatly
appreciated.

Eve Line Blum <eve.line.blum@...>
 

The site dedicated to the deportees of the Convoy #73,
who left Drancy (France) on 15 May 1944, is being updated at

http://www.convoi73.org/francais/900francaisf/temoignages.html

from now on, the biographies of five deportees of that
transport are online and others will follow,
as soon as we receive their authors' authorizations.
For the moment, they are only in French (even if the
rest of the site has an English and a Spanish translation)
but we hope to be able to translate them soon.

thanks for NYC lookup + Rabbi location question #general

Maya Elbaz <elbazm@...>
 

Hello all,

I would like to reiterate my thanks for the many who looked up
Herta & Sam Seidman for me. A particular thanks to Alice from
Miami and Avrum Geller who made additional inquiries and (sadly)
found out that Herta had passed away.

Avrum Geller was kind enough to send me the obituary >from the NY
times, in which there is reference to a cousin I do not know, a
Rabbi Moshe Handelsman >from Brooklyn. this cousin may or may not
be related to me, depending on whether he is descended >from the
Handelsman - Luwisch marriage that took place sometime in the
late 1800s or >from a sibling/cousin of the Handelsman that
married the Luwisch woman.

Either way, I would of course like to track him down and find
out, especially as I know that there are 2 Handelsman (or
Andelsman) sisters living in Paris, both married, who are
also my third cousins - but I have no names at all.

Internet searches in various online directories recommended
to me by some of the many helpful genners who answered my
initial query yielded an address for one Moshe Handelsman
in Brooklyn. However, google shows a few other Moshe Handelsmans.
My questions: does any NY or possibly Brooklyn genner who attends
temple know of a Rabbi Moshe Handelsman? is there any way to
track down a Rabbi through a Jewish organization? And does anyone
have any tips for finding relatives in Paris when you don't know
their first name or married name (well...)

thanks again everyone! (and please reply privately)

Haganah Archive Web Site #general

Rose Feldman <rosef@...>
 

I just got this announcement yesterday.

It is in Hebrew and you need to be able to type your
search in Hebrew. But for those that do have the ability
to read and type Hebrew, it is the begining. The site
does not have a soundex search, so you have to try
different spellings. Their archive includes typed
interviews of people active in the Haganah back to the 20s.
The interviews were in the 50s.

Brest-Litovski #general

Larry Schenker <lpsca@...>
 

Between the years of 1905 and 1911 was Brest-Litovski ever
considered a part of Poland? I know that the location
is on the border.

I have just discovered the 1930 Federal Census for my
uncle and on this document he indicated that he was born
in Brest-Litovski, Poland.

He was in 1930 about 23 years old. Also a very educated
man who had just graduated >from Law School in the
United States.

Re: photos of Warsaw #warsaw #poland

Nicole BERLINE <nberline@...>
 

The book "Getto Warsawskie" which I mentionned contains
tons of information which would be precious to us whose parents died in the
ghetto.
But it is in polish , and so far it has not been translated : editors are
not interested ...
Would anyone know how to have it published in English ?
I am trying to find a publisher in French.

Nicole Berline, Paris

Much thanks to Stefan Mucha of the United Kingdom for
letting us access his photo collection of Warsaw and
teh ghetto. I am so grateful to those who are willing
to share this kind of information which is so helpful
and interesting to us all. I am wondering if there is
any possibility of putting photos like this into a
book format for purchase? I know I would be most
interested in owning a copy.

Hello Peter,

it is a misunderstanding

This website is not my own. I just found it and was as you were, very
impressed with the pictures and the maps.

I also cannot speak polish but I am sure that we can contact the
person of this website and ask him (or her) about his (or her) plans

Mr.Stefan Mucha could also try to contact this person and try to
change informations and/or pictures. Is that not a good idea ?

best regards

Giselle

I've just taken a quick look at Giselle's website - and am most

True, it's all in Polish, but there seem to be literally hundreds of
photographs of pre-WWII (and earlier) Warsaw buildings ... and they
appear
to be searchable by street name (scroll down to "Ulice, place i
Wis=B3a" on
page

http://warszawa1939.strefa.pl/fundamenty/indeks.htm

then search by street) and by map location (go to

, then click on the map to zoom in; it seems that buildings for
which the
site has photos are identified in colour).

Giselle: Are you planning to add more photographs as they are
identified?
