ROISTACHER or similar . #general

The father of my G/father was called Jacob RESTATCHER.
One of his children my G/father was called Haim - Moshe /
Michel born and lived in Bessarabya. He was born in 1870
in 1905 (or sooner) arrived to Egypt and died there in Dec.
1940. Jacob had family named ROISTACHER who arrived to
Israel >from Russia before 1970. Boris and his wife Haya
with children lived in Petach-Tikva (Israel). Boris was
the son of Leibel. Boris left after Haya deceased and
join his daughter family in Canada. Then unfortunately
our connection stopped.

As I can recall Leible might be a brother to Jacob. As
the problems in Europe, families were spread and each one
arrived to another "corner of the world" changing their
name in order to adapt.

I know that there are many variations of the name such as
RESTUCHER and so on And some families in the USA and Canada.
Will be very happy to find member of the "Boris family" and
if it ring a bell to someone In concern please reply privately
to my E-Mail: opit@netvision.net.il

Czestochowa and 10 towns nearby #poland

Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

I am pleased to announce that fundraising is now complete for "Phase
1" of the Czestochowa Archive project. This is the JRI-Poland
project to bring 20353 birth, marriage, and death index records to
the web. The following towns/years are covered:

Czestochowa, years: 1884-95
Janow, years: 1869, 1871-97, 1883-87
Klobuck, years: 1849, 1861, 1874, 1885-95
Krzepice, years: 1826-29, 1878-91, 1890-98
Lelow, years: 1884-95
Mstow, years: 1857-58, 1863/69, 1878-84, 1885-95
Plawno, years: 1890
Praszka, years: 1868, 1871-96
Przyrow, years: 1889-95
Szczekociny, years: 1852, 1884-89, 1893-95
Zarki, years: 1875, 1878, 1884-1896

Please check here for records of interest to you:

http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/jriplweb.htm

Thank you, Stanley Diamond, for your years and years of work that
have made it possible for all of us to have access to thousands of
index records for our families! Our thanks also to Michael Tobias
and Sheila Salo, both of whom provide less visible (but vital)
contributions to the JRI-Poland effort.

Of course, we each have a personal angle on these matters. For me, I
feel a great debt to Diamond, Tobias, and Salo for allowing me to
find dozens of my ENGLENDER records among the 20353 records now
available on the JRI-Poland web site for Czestochowa and the towns
listed above.

I would like to offer my thanks to Michael Chen (for his
stage-setting work on the LDS films for the town of Czestochowa), to
Mark Shilling (who inventoried the records for Praszka and Krzepice),
to Leah Jordan Bisel (for working with the films for Szczekociny),
and to Morris Wirth (who inventoried the LDS microfilms of the Jewish
records for all the other towns in the Czestochowa project!). And
thank you to the hard-working town leaders for this project: Gloria
Berkenstat Freund, Alan Radack, Mark A. Shilling, Abraham Stavsky,
Diana Terry, and David Rose.

I would like to collectively thank the many persons who contributed
funding to this project. Their contribution remains somewhat
invisible, but of course all would be impossible without the funding
they provide.

Of course, there will be a Phase 2 for this project. I will announce
details as soon as possible.

Re: latvia digest: October 25, 2002 #latvia

Stanley Judd <stanleyjudd@...>
 

Thank you for your response. At this point, I am exploring how my
proposal would work with Jewishgen. Warren Blatt has a proposal
to meet their needs which is wider in scope but narrower in the
locations to be included. My greatest concern is how to ensure
the accuracy of the data to be included.

At this point in time I am thinking of an EXCEL spreadsheet with
columns for the major date ranges and a comment column for the
minor ones or exceptions. I think there are enough rows to deal
with the locations.

I would appreciate any suggestions/ideas you may have.

I will keep you informed on my progress.

Keith,

Thank you for your inquiry. I do not have any special knowledge
or plans regarding Dvinsk at this time. It was by chance it was
included in my example. If you have such knowledge, I would
appreciate any data you could provide.

My plan is to create an EXCEL spreadsheet for the data. Since
there are probably more time ranges that the 256 column width,
I propose handling the minor ranges and exceptions in a comments
column. My greatest concern is the accuracy of what is included.
Clearly I will need a lot of help because there are many areas I
am not familiar with and there is a lot of data.

I am corresponding with Warren Blatt to see how my ideas fit in
with plans for Jewishgen. As I understand it at this time, he is
interested in a 'master' database to meet all their needs.
This is much wider in scope and much narrower in what would be
included: e.g. only locations that had a Jewish population of
100 or more would be included plus a few locations of special
interest.

I hope the above answers your questions. If not, please let me know.

Search for foreign Jews in Poland during WWII #poland

Victor G. Springer <vicspringer@...>
 

My uncle, Morz Gruschka, who was a native of ienna, fled east to Krakow after
the Anschluss.
In a last desperate letter >from him >from Krakow, a couple of weeks before the
Germans invaded Poland, he mentioned that he had twice been jailed, but
released because he was under British protection (those not so protected were
being sent back to Austria or Germany). [n.b., I do not understand how a
Viennese Jew could be under British protection].

A check with Yad Vashem, two searches by the Red Cross spaced about 10 years
apart, a check with Jewish and civil records sources in Vienna, a check with
the Jewish Agency in Israel, and checks of the available lists of
concentration camp inmates have turned up no record of what happened to him.
Also, his name is not included on any of the JRI-pl Krakow lists (I filed his
name with Yad Vashem many years ago).

Does anyone, perhaps, have knowledge or suggestions of Polish or other records
sources I could contact for information on foreign Jews in Poland [or
Krakow]during WWII?

Losset, Poland #poland

Josh Brown <gettysburg63@...>
 

Hello:

I was wondering if anyone knows where Losset, Poland is and what it is
currently called. I found the name on my gggrandfather's naturalization.
They spelled his last name wrong, and he was illiterate. It definetly says
Losset, but a man with the same last name who arrived on the same ship said
his place of birth was Lodz. Does anyone know what shtetl they speak of?
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thanks,
Josh Brown

Re: Help with locations in East Prussia/Lithuania #germany

Oliver Friedman
 

Hello,

My GG Aunt was supposed to be >from Hedecruk near Leipzig
in East Prussia.
The correct spelling would be "Heydekrug", or "Heidekrug".

[...] Also, when my GG Aunt and her father arrived in
1904 (at Ellis Island), they listed Akrnauschken, Germany
as their last place of residence. Does anyone recognize
this location?
That town name "Akrnauschken" is certainly mis-spelled.

Check out:

Atlas des Deutschen Reichs, published 1883, on-line edition,
(Adobe Acrobat PDF):
http://www.library.wisc.edu/etext/ravenstein/#Introduction

Very high-resolution scans of maps of Germany as of 1883. Even
very small villages are included. Start by looking up the name
of the city/village your are searching for in the alphabetical
index first:

Then download the according map.

1903 Komarno to Jerusalem Pilgramage #general

RobinnM@...
 

Dear JewishGenners:

Can someone tell me how I might try to document a family story
that my great-grandfather, Chaim DRIX made a pilgrimage >from
Komarno, Galicia (now Ukraine) to Jerusalem when my grandfather
was 8 years old ( most likely: 1903).

Komarno is about 35 km SE of Lviv (Lemberg).

Would exit papers, passenger lists or some sort of documentation
in Jerusalem exist? He is not buried in Jerusalem, but returned
home "several years" later to Komarno, so a Chevrah Kadisha
search is not relevant in this case, and that is the only pre-1948
documentation that I am familiar with. What other kinds of
documentation might exist?

Thanks for your help.
