Need Info on British 106 Bomber Squadron #general

David Rosner
 

My Uncle was a "Yank in the RAF" and served with the 106 Bomber Squadron
(Lancasters) until he was Killed in Action, during 1943.

His name was Eugene Rosner, born 1920-21

if anyone has any information on the Squadron at all, I'd appreciate it...

Ruth - I was able to find the passenger list >from the "boat" that my
grandfather arrived on >from Canada into Lewiston, NY. I had the date and
port >from my grandfather's naturalization papers. I suppose the boat was
more like what we think of today as a ferry. There was alot of information
provided on that passenger list. These collective passenger lists are
referred to as St Albans lists, as I believe it covers several small ports
bordering Canada in the Northeast US. Check out information on the NARA
website --->
http://www.nara.gov/genealogy/immigration/immigrat.html

I understand that it is possible through the Canadian Archives to find the
passenger arrival lists of our families who arrived *into* Canada - but I
personally have not gone down that path............. yet.

Harry Kars and Benjamin Korshsinski #general

SHEILA TOFFELL <toffell@...>
 

While looking for members of my Korsunski / Karsunski family in the Natz.
records for NYC, I came across these two names. Both state they were from
Kiev, Russia, which is what is on my G .Uncle, Aaron Karsunski's form, even
thought he came >from Stavische. The details are as follows:
Herschel Korsunski, landed as Harry, Changed his name legally to Harry
Kars. Wife's name Rebecca.
Benjamin Korshinski, landed as Benzi. Wife's name also Rebecca.

Both born around 1860 - 70
I am trying to establish a connection with my Karsunsky family from
Stavische or Tarasche, as both first names are common to us, and the name
Korsunsky has surfaced in many forms. Even if there is no connection, I did
copy the Natz forms and have census inf. that I took down, "just in case".
If these people might be >from your family, I will gladly pass them on to
you.

Bernie Auerbach wrote, " Few Jews ever had their births and deaths recorded
with authorities, especially in Eastern Europe" I beg to differ. This
theory would negate the millions of vital records recorded by the Mormon
Family History Library. I have personally examined perhaps a hundred
thousand vital Jewish records on both microfilm and original records in
Polish and Lithuanian Archives. With luck one can even find 18th century
records. These records were of course kept by the authorities and that is
why we can access them today.

End of year report from Yizkor #belarus

Elsebeth Paikin
 

To Denmark SIG:

Yizkor Book Update, December 2000 and Year 2000

As we enter 2001, it is the time to reflect on the accomplishments of the
Yizkor Book Project for the year, and they are considerable, because of all
the people who translated and donated material to us and because of the
dedicated volunteers on the html group under John Berman.

We now have 255 entries and there were updates to 122 books during the
year. They are available at
http://www.JewishGen.org/yizkor/translations.html. One of our notable
achievements was announced last week--the Necrology Index at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/. This project was implemented
by Ernie Fine, project manager, and his talented volunteers; Michael
Tobias, the JewishGen database guru; Warren Blatt, who coordinated the
myriad of technical details to get the index online; and John Berman, who
worked on the yizkor book database. Another remarkable achievement,
although invisible, is the tune up that Michael Tobias has done on the
yizkor book database. Complex projects such as the necrology index are
always a team effort and we are indeed fortunate to have talented people
working on these projects.

Cemetery--Worksman's Circle (Arbeiter Ring 318) #general

Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

With more great help >from Toronto, I have learned that a member
of my family (Israel ENGLANDER) was buried in Toronto, Ontario,
at Roselawn Cemetery. Most interesting, I have learned that he
was a member of:

Workman's Circle--Arbeiter Ring, #318

Perhaps this is the detail that I need that will allow me to
find this missing branch of my ENGLANDER family?

Does anyone have any knowledge of Arbeiter Ring, #318? Perhaps
old directories >from Toronto or elsewhere? I'd love to have
any help at all with this!

Daniel Kazez

P.S. Israel ENGLANDER's father was Solomon; his mother was
Mary/Miriam; and his two brothers were Samuel and Joseph.
They lived in Chicago until about 1905, and then went to Ontario.
