Yizkor book Rohatyn, Kehilat Rohatyn, Tsvi WOHL, New York #general

Dan Larsson <dan.larsson@...>
 

I am researching the WOHL, WUHL, WAHL families of Stratyn, Rohatyn,
and the surrounding areas.
Came across the Yizkor book for Rohatyn and found that part of one of the
chapters was written by a Tsvi Wohl >from New York. The Yizkor book was
printed in Israel 1962 and its title is Kehelat Rohatyn.I would appreciate
contact with anyone who has information on Tsvi WOHL and or his relatives.

Many thanks in advance and want to wish all my fellow researchers a

Shana Tova.

JewishGen Pre-Pub Offer *The Holocaust in Lithuania 1941-1945..* #general

Sandra and Donald Hirschhorn <donsandyh@...>
 

The JewishGen Mall is now taking pre-publication orders for the new,
comprehensive, four-volume set *The Holocaust in Lithuania 1941-1945: A
Book of Remembrance* edited and compiled by Rose Lerer Cohen and Saul
Issroff published by Gefen Publishing House, Israel, in English. When
available, books will be shipped directly >from the publisher.

This important work records and documents over 50,000 names of Lithuanian
Jews who perished in the Holocaust and is the result of years of research
and collation using articles in journals and the daily press, mailings to
survivors, and on-line submissions to the project website.

The first volume comprises a detailed history of the Holocaust in
Lithuania, providing a historical context in which to consider the final
three volumes, which feature the lists of those who were interned in
ghettos, and those who perished during the terrible years of 1941-1945.
Also included is important secondary information, such as a list of
Yahrzeit (Memorial) dates of Lithuanian Jewish communities, and detailed
reference lists of films, books and articles on the Lithuanian Holocaust.

The four volumes are album sized, in hardcover, and total over 1,800 pages.
Normal suggested retail is $300.00. If purchased individually they total
$425.00 retail. Find this four-volume set on the JewishGen Mall at our
special pre-publication price of $255.00 plus $25.00 shipping. The books
are expected to be available in mid-October. The set would make an ideal
gift for any Jewish library.

If you are able to order before August 31st you will be eligible for the
JewishGen Mall-wide10% off sale which is in effect for every item on the
Mall which will reduce the cost of this set to $229.50 plus shipping.

stock number GEF2-101. Orders can be faxed to JewishGen at 281-535-2204
if you include complete credit card information.

Boston High Schools in Jewish neighborhoods #general

Jeff Blustein
 

Hopefully one of the genners is familiar with Boston's neighborhoods of the
mid 1950's. I have tried contacting Boston's federation, and a few people
listed at the classmates site, but haven't gotten any help. I'm trying to
locate my mom's first cousin nee Rosalie SCHNEIDER whose mom in Brooklyn
died in her childbirth July 8, 1936. According to family legend, her dad
Avrum left but returned a few years later and took his daughter to Boston.
He resurfaced in the mid '50's after my great grandma's (nobody remembers
the last name of her last husband) death for Rosalie's share of the
inheritance.

I presume that the only logical way to find her is to see if any classmate
might know of her, or if there was some record of her attending a high
school in Boston. To do that I need to know which High Schools in the mid
1950's she most likely would have attended.

Your replies and advice are appreciated.

Re: We *can't* lose JewishGen #general

Mila Begun <mmbegun@...>
 

What Susan King didn't mention at the Toronto conference is how much she,
personally, has sacrificed to run JewishGen.

Yes, we rely on volunteers on all the research projects, but Susan, as top
person is where the buck stops. Meaning, she is always problem solving,
working to repair computer breakdowns on our servers, doing publicity,
establishing strategic liasons with other organizations, fund raising,
resolving complaints, and on and on. She often works a very long, frantic
day, one which none of us would choose. A one-woman band if there ever
was one.

These incredible *above and beyond* efforts are because there's no one
else to handle many of these things. It would be a wonderful change if
Susan could be freed >from the nitty-gritty and concentrate on all the
creative thinking that has made JewishGen great.

With limited funds, we cannot pay additonal staff. It is my personal hope
that with appropriate donations coming in, JewishGen will be able to pay
professionals and relieve Susan King to do what she does so well:
continue to grow JewishGen into an even more amazing organization than
it is now.

1900 Manifest #general

Jackie Wasserstein
 

I saw a posting on the Belarus SIG. The e-mailer said that manifests >from
June 14, 1897 to Dec 16, 1900 were not included in the Ellis Island Database.

There had been a fire and those manifests were with the Barge Office. Is
that true? Is there anyway to get these manifests. I have been trying to
find my grandmother, Malka LACHOWITSKY, in the manifests. She came around
1900. This would certainly explain why I have been unsuccessful in
locatin her.

David and Rose KLEIN: Looking for decendants #general

JANICE GOLDMAN <jg2333@...>
 

Dear Jewishgenners:
I am seeking to find the descendants of David and Rose KLEIN, who
descended >from Harry and Fanny KLEIN in New York. In 1930, Rose was 27 and
David was 26 years of age. Rose was a *Lady in Waiting* and David was a
Laborer. Also, what was a Lady in Waiting's job description?
Thank you.

Kopivka, Ukraine #general

Joel Stearman <dpastear@...>
 

I've just learned that several members of my family were born in Kopivka,
near Nimirov, Vinitsa District, Ukraine. These 7 births were at the end
of the 1800's and the beginning of the 1900's. The family name then was
BESRUK. Kopivka was a small country village (dorf). There were only a few
Jewish families living there. One of the Jewish villagers owned two
Torahs and held services in his house. Is anyone else doing research on
this village or have any information about it?
