Searching:KAGONOVITZ/Korelicze and Old Glue and Album Paper #belarus

kdomeshek@...
 

Hello Genners.

Two things. Asking for help to locate any KAGONOVITZ family descendants from
Korelicze. Clues: there were two survivors, Yona KAGONOVITZ went to US
and Mania Ritz nee KAGONOVITZ probably went to Israel. I have recently found
photos >from before the war. Through marriage with my family, these photos
include some KAGONOVITZ people >from Korelicze. KAGONOVITZ descendants
would probably like to see these. (Have checked JewishGen...no researchers
listed for KAGONOVITZ plus Korelicze.)

Second. Have found a way to remove album paper and glue that covers the
writing on the back of a 100 year old photo. Do not attempt water or solvents.
It damaged the ink. Instead, use an X-Acto knife to dislodge as much album
paper as will come off. Some light force and scraping is OK. Old brittle
glue may come with it. But the glue did not pull off any card stock.
Then use 400 grit sandpaper and gently rub. The album paper is not dense.
It will abrade and come off as dust and fine particles. The photo card
stock is dense and sturdy. It was not damaged and the ink remained legible,
as long as you apply only enough pressure to abrade the album paper. Any
stubborn and remaining glue is likely to be transparent, so the ink remains
legible underneath. Warning...be patient...it took 1 hour to do one
photograph.

Czech TV Series on Historic Bohemian and Moravian Jewish Cemeteries #austria-czech

mperlny@...
 

I would like to thank Julius Muller for originally bringing this
documentary series on historic Bohemian and Moravian Jewish cemeteries
to our attention back in 2015. I will be appearing in a segment on
Ceska Televize CT2 on Sunday, November 19, 2017 at 9:35 am. The
program will be repeated on Monday, November 20, 2017 at 2:05 pm, and
on Thursday, November 23, 2017, at 4:05 pm.

I was interviewed in Ivancice, Moravia, where I located the gravestone
of my great great great great grandmother, Johanna Diamant. She was
born in 1771 and died on November 1,1836.

After many years of research, and using the online database of the
cemetery, I was able to locate her gravestone. The Jewish Cemetery in
Ivancice is very important, and is the third oldest Jewish cemetery in
the Czech Republic. There are approximately 1,800 gravestones that
have been preserved until now. The oldest legible gravestone dates
back to 1552.

Ivancice is the hometown of the well known artist Alfons Mucha, the
musicologist Guido Adler, and the composer & conductor Hugo Weisgal.

I was interviewed in English during the taping, and there is a
voice-over in Czech.

The entire series of historic Jewish cemeteries, including my
ancestral towns of Boskovice, and Mikulov can be viewed on the Czech
Television's website.

(Poland) Emmanuel Ringelblum Warsaw Ghetto Archives On Display at Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Facing death in the Warsaw Ghetto, a Jewish team, led by Emmanuel
Ringelblum, hid a trove of documents they wrote to document the life and
death of the Warsaw ghetto. They hid the documents in milk cans and buried
them to be hidden >from the Nazis, once they realized the ghetto would be
liquidated and the ghetto survivors would be transported to death camps. The
milk cans were found in 1946 and the second part in 1950. Three members of
the team survived the war and were able to recover the hidden work.

There are 6,000 documents totaling over 35,000 pages. The documents are
written in Polish, Yiddish and some are in Hebrew and German. An English
version of the first volume is being prepared and a Polish translation of
the last volume is almost completed.

The archives has gone on display at the Jewish Historical Institute in
Warsaw. A team of 35 people worked on documenting the death toll in
ghetto known as Oyneg Shabbes, gathered the documents, which included secret
newspapers, ration coupons, postcards, medical prescriptions, entertainment
handbills, literary texts and more. The exhibit is free of charge between
November 16 and December 7 2017. The permanent exhibition "What we were
unable to shout out to the world" is dedicated to the Underground Archive
of the Warsaw Ghetto and to its creators.

On November 14, Polish President Andrzej Duda and his wife attended the
official opening of the permanent exhibition. The exhibit opened on the 70th
anniversary of the Jewish Historical Institute. To read the comments by
President Duda and Professor Pawel Spiewak see the JHI information at:

Scott: name changes are a state matter, like vital records. Different
states have different laws, requirements and restrictions; many follow
the usage method (changing it at will under common law) and in the
first half of the twentieth century that was common practice in New

Within New York State name changes can be performed in State Supreme

Plock Books of Residents - all data now searchable online #lodz #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

On behalf of Jewish Records Indexing - Poland, it is with great pleasure
that I am able to announce that all 17,200 entries in the 1878-1897 Plock
Books of Residents project are now searchable online in the JRI-Poland
database www.jri-poland.org

We are indebted to the project leader Tony Hausner, and the many
researchers, the Gombin Jewish Historical & Genealogical Society and the
Plotzker Young Men's Independent Association, all of whom gave their
generous support to the project.

As researchers may be aware, the data was released in phases as funds were
raised. Until recently only entries for families living on streets with
names starting with the letters A to P were available. Since there are
many streets beginningwith the letter "S" the increase in online data
is substantial.

Here is an overview of the Plock Books of Residents project:
The entries have detailed information on 17,200 individuals, a remarkable
resource for those researching ancestors living in Plock who were born as
early as 1786. There are more than 4400 different surnames (and spelling
variations) and more than 700 other towns mentioned in the database.

Thus, if your family lived anywhere near Plock, you should be checking to
see if any relatives appear in this data.

Books of Residents are a house-by-house census of the families living in
the town. Town officials updated the information for each family on an
ongoing basis over time and recorded all the people living in the house
and moving in and out.

Each entry includes Name, Surname, Father's Name, Mother's Name,
Occupation, Date and Place of Birth or previous place of residence.
In some cases, Dates of Death, Marriage, and Draft Status or other
informative notes are included.

and his presentation was " The Secret Warsaw Ghetto Archive of Emanuel
Ringelblum" For those interested in learning more about the secret archive
his book, Who Will Write Our History? Rediscovering A Hidden Archive from
the Warsaw Ghetto is an excellent resource. I have no affiliation with
Professor Kassow and am mentioning his book only as a reference to the
Ringelblum Archives.

JRI Poland #Poland (Poland) Emmanuel Ringelblum Warsaw Ghetto Archives On Display at Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw #poland

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Facing death in the Warsaw Ghetto, a Jewish team, led by Emmanuel
Ringelblum, hid a trove of documents they wrote to document the life and
death of the Warsaw ghetto. They hid the documents in milk cans and buried
them to be hidden >from the Nazis, once they realized the ghetto would be
liquidated and the ghetto survivors would be transported to death camps. The
milk cans were found in 1946 and the second part in 1950. Three members of
the team survived the war and were able to recover the hidden work.

There are 6,000 documents totaling over 35,000 pages. The documents are
written in Polish, Yiddish and some are in Hebrew and German. An English
version of the first volume is being prepared and a Polish translation of
the last volume is almost completed.

The archives has gone on display at the Jewish Historical Institute in
Warsaw. A team of 35 people worked on documenting the death toll in
ghetto known as Oyneg Shabbes, gathered the documents, which included secret
newspapers, ration coupons, postcards, medical prescriptions, entertainment
handbills, literary texts and more. The exhibit is free of charge between
November 16 and December 7 2017. The permanent exhibition "What we were
unable to shout out to the world" is dedicated to the Underground Archive
of the Warsaw Ghetto and to its creators.

On November 14, Polish President Andrzej Duda and his wife attended the
official opening of the permanent exhibition. The exhibit opened on the 70th
anniversary of the Jewish Historical Institute. To read the comments by
President Duda and Professor Pawel Spiewak see the JHI information at:
