On the web #general

In crawling around the web, I was surprised to find - for the first time -
access to messages posted to the Jewish Gen list. I'd like some
clarification of this >from someone who knows. I had thought that postings
to this forum were limited to people who had subscribed to it. While our
postings are obviously public, in the strict sense of the word, I think
most of us have the sense of talking among ourselves at a restaurant table
rather than speaking through a microphone to an audience full of
miscellaneous strangers.,

of interest (judging by responses I have received). Many people have
asked: "What did you learn?" In fact, I have gathered quite a bit of
information. If by chance you are interested in "my" surnames or "my"
towns in Ukraine, please let me know. I have prepared a very detailed
report that I would be glad to share with interested parties.

My surnames:

Liss / Lis / etc.
Oberman / Guberman / Huberman / etc.
Stein / Shtein / etc. (brief research only)

My towns in Ukraine:

Zaslav (now Izyaslav)--Volyn?
Medvedovka--Volynia
Proskurov (now Khmelnitskiy)--Podolia

Subject: Re: The book of David Szmulenski about Auschwitz

By the way, Szmulewski mentions and writes about many French Jews who
were with him in the Auschwitz Camp and partcipated in the Resistance
movement. We might translate the book to French also.

I am willing to help with the translation into French (>from English

The Pinsk association in Israel has a web site: www.pinskjew.com made by Mr.
Nachum Boneh, the chairman of the association. Mr. Boneh's article about
Pinsk Jews during the war, published in the Pinsk Yizkor Book, is on his way
to the Yizkor Book project of the JewishGen in the near future.
In the following web site you can find Mr. Nachum Boneh's article about the
Pinsk Jews in the Ghetto. The article is an introduction to the database of
Pinsk Ghetto List. See
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Belarus/PinskGhetto-YalkutMoreshet.htm
Searching for relatives in the Ghetto list can be done at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Belarus
You can also find more information about Pinsk Jews at the "Family Finder"
and the "Discussion Group Archives" of www.jewishgen.org .
I hope all the information above will help you and others in your research,

Budapest Civil Records #hungary

Patricia J. Weisshaus <patjw28@...>
 

Has anyone had any report on further civil records film for Budapest? The
only ones shown for District VII are for 1895 and 1897. I'm looking for
sisters and brothers of my husband's father. His record was available in
Budapest at the District VII office when we were there last October.

Thanks for any reply,

Pat

Re: The book of David Szmulenski about Auschwitz #yizkorbooks

Ada Holtzman <ada01@...>
 

I wish to thank George Neuwirth for his answer. We probably shall find out
once I see the book. I already ordered...

By the way, Szmulewski mentions and writes about many French Jews who were
with him in the Auschwitz Camp and partcipated in the Resistance movement.
We might translate the book to French also.

Just one example on page 69 translated already to French:

"Le groupe “Canadien”, tel qu’il était surnommé, qui s’occupait de la
réception des convois sur la rampe, renforça sa coopération avec
l’organisation de la résistance. Cette coopération était très importante au
niveau de l’information concernant les transports. Le kapo (qui était
responsable vis-à-vis des autorités du camp) était un Juif autrichien qui ne
gênait en rien les activités des résistants. Les responsables de
l’information étaient les suivants: Itzik Friedman, Stein, Benzion Botsza
et son fils, Sam, Bekas, David Lederman, Zanich Breier, Green, Itshe
Lemberger, Leib Fuchs, Philipe Wodka, Leibele de Grodno, Yankel Kwitek,
Herschl et beaucoup d’autres."

Please. Please. take that nasty reply-to out of the headers. It makes
it nearly impossible to send a private message to the originator.

None of the other jewishgen mailing lists have this problem.

Please contact the tech support people for Lyris to get it done.

My last message was not intended for the general public. I only noticed
