BOOK CITE: Novel about Jews in Geroldshausen/Wuerzburg #germany

Fritz Neubauer
 

In the German weekly "Die Zeit" of Dec 12, 2001 the author Peter Roos
reviews a novel based on what happend to the Jews in the small village
of Geroldshausen near Wuerzburg, narrated by the author who inherited a
piece of land there called "Judenacker", who then starts to make
inquiries and finds e.g. a family where the father was doctor in
Auschwitz etc. and describes how the town deals with the notoriety it
gets after the publication of this piece of faction.

The review is not included in the net version of the publication (but I
could provide it by private Email upon request).

The article is illustrated by a photograph of the march of Wuerzburg
Jews to their deportation on April 25, 1942 right through the town.

I have not read the book, it could be interesting reading for
researchers >from the Franconian areas of Bavaria who can read German. It
should be available through the normal sources:

Voelklein, Ulrich: Der Judenacker: Eine Erbschaft. Bleicher Verlag,
2001. ISBN 3-88350-119-0. 253 pages. Price Euro 22.

More on Hebrew Genealogical Terminology #general

Jane Vogel-Kohai & Ofer Kohai <vogelko@...>
 

While we're on the subject, does anyone have any idea what
the terminology for a "removed" cousin is? I haven't found
an Israeli yet who can tell the difference between a second
cousin or a first cousin once removed. Does anyone know of
any "old" or "new" term for a "removed" cousin?
Thanks-

new Bielsk Podlaski ShtetLinks site #general

Andrew Blumberg <ablumberg@...>
 

Hello,

A new ShtetLinks page has been added to JewishGen for
the Polish town of Bielsk Podlaski. It is hoped this
site will help you learn more about your ancestral
shtetl, how your ancestors lived and perhaps help you
discover names of ancestors or relatives. Some
original source materials listing names of people from
Bielsk Podlaski are contained in the site. The site
also contains links to external resources pertaining
to Bielsk Podlaski and Jewish life in Poland.

The site will be updated periodically and I have
already been in touch with people who are going to
contribute photos and maps of Bielsk Podlaski as well
as additional material >from the Bielsk Podlaski
landsmanshaft. If you would like to receive an email
when new materials are added to the site please let me
know.

Please email me if you have any photos, documents,
stories or materials that you would like to share with
other researchers through this site. I look forward to
hearing >from you.

Thanks to Brad Gordon for providing the spark to get
this project going!

The link for the site is

Wembley used to be in Middlesex (Middx) before it was

Manchester research #unitedkingdom

Judy Freedman <ja.freedman@...>
 

After great frustration looking for my relatives, someone I communicated
with >from the Family Finder suggested the Telegraph, a newspaper for the
Jewish community in Manchester and other parts of the UK. They have a
feature called Roots which allows you to ask your genealogy questions.
It brought instant success for the man who suggested it, and it did the
same for me.

My newly discovered Manchester relatives assured me all Jews in
Manchester read it.

Book re Pogroms #ukraine

Flo Elman
 

Dear Members:
Linda Kern was glad to be able to help look up names of towns in which
pogroms took place. She was inundated with requests however, & will have to
limit her searches to those she received before today as that is about all
she can handle for now. As of now, she will have to turn down any new ones.

Thanks for the helping hand Linda.

Sincerely,

Just wanted to let you know that I have been set straight and I now know the katubot on VM2038 is written in Aramaic, not Yiddish or Hebrew. Of course, it goes without saying, I can't read Aramaic either!
