Abbreviation 2ch or Zch in Polish records #general

I've seen the abbreviation 2ch or Zch ("ch" as superscript) in many
Polish documents indexed on JRI-Poland. Can someone clarify and explain
the meaning to me?

UK War Medals info #general

I thought this could be useful to those of us searching
for family members who had served in the British &
Commonwealth Armies in WW 11.

This info comes >from a v useful list run by Rootsweb,
about WW 2. To subscribe:
WORLDWAR2-D-request@rootsweb.com

The War Medal 1939-1945; one of two general service medals for WWII; the
other being the Defence Medal. They complement the several Second World
War campaign stars awarded for service in specific theatres of war. The
War Medal was awarded in 1945 to all full-time personnel of all British
and Commonwealth armed services wherever they were serving, so long as
they had served for at least 28 days between 3 Sep 1939 and 2 Sep 1945.

Medal Rolls and Medal Offices

The Medal Rolls for World War II have yet to be released to the Public
Record Office. They are held by the Army Medal Office, an official
enterprise that holds the formal records of campaign and service medals
and other awards to all British armed services. The Army Medal Office is
still dealing with the issue of medals, including retrospective awards of
World War II and later medals to servicemen and women (or their next of
kin) who can prove non-issue. However, it should be noted that if the
serviceman or woman refused to accept the medals when first issued, the
Army Medal Office will respect that wish and decline to issue medals to
next of kin or families. The office address is:

Ministry of Defence, Army Medal Office,
Government Office Buildings,
Worcester Road,
Droitwich,
Worcestershire WR9 8AU,
United Kingdom.

I have no other information, please don't ask me.

Sorry, In my first answer I had forgoten to mention the 21st, 22nd and 23rd
Regiments of Foreign Volonteers. Most of the 22nd were Jews, 30% Polish
Jews. It was probably the same for the 21st. They were formed in Barcares.

And I don't know how I could forget a very important source: you will have
informations concerning Jews in the French army during WWII by writing to:
U.E.V.A.C.J.E.A. (Union des Engages Volontaires Anciens Combattants Juifs
39-45, leurs Enfants et Amis):
union-des-engages-volontaires@wanadoo.fr

They have a Revue "Notre volonte" where it may be possible (?) to ask if
somebody met your cousin.

A cousin of my mother's was in the Polish Legion of the French
army in WW II. He was captured and spent the war in a series
of POW camps, each more harsh since he was an escaper.
Are there any records of the Legion and of POW camps.

Northern NJ Cemeteries -- Part II #general

A. E. Jordan
 

Thanks to everyone who replied to my question about a cemetery in
Richfield Park, NJ. Most everyone suggested Riverside in Rochelle Park.

I spoke to Riverside as well as Mt. Moriah and neither has the gave for
Abraham KORENSTEIN. All I know is that Korenstein lived in Hoboken and
was a pillar of the Jewish community. Hence I doubt he was not buried in
a Jewish cemetery.

I am checking the listing for other local cemeteries, but anyone have any
ideas on what was the most likely cemetery for a Hoboken person who died
in about 1950?

Thanks.

Dear Howie and group: For what it is worth, in 1928 my (Hungarian)
grandmother, who lived in Manhattan and in Brooklyn, but never New Jersey,
bought a sizeable plot >from the Lakewood Cemetery Association in the
Riverside Cemetery, Rochelle Park, Saddle River, Bergen County, NJ. She was
buried there in 1946. ( have no record that the other plots were ever
used.) This isn't Newark, but maybe it is useful to someone....

Continuing the thread of Jewish cemeteries in northern New Jersey, I have
been told that two possible relatives of mine were buried in the
Hungarian Cemetery in Newark. However, upon calling the telephone
company, they indicate that there is no such listing in Newark or in the
surrounding area.

Hello! I probably didn't give enough information about using this site.
All you do is click on "browse the directory". Then, in alphabetical order,
you can click on a letter of the alphabet for a name you are interested
in. It only takes a few seconds. Once that person's name came up, it does
say "e-mail me", and all you have to do is click on that and send a
letter. It doesn't give the actual e-mail address, for privacy reasons.

Good luck!

Sincerely,

I've noticed a great deal of mail relating to Jewish cemeteries in New
Jersey, I am searching a great great uncle who died around 1/1/1900 and is
buried somewhere in New Jersey. If any happens to come across a tomb
stone of Yacov (Jacob) Tillman please photograph it and get it to me.
He's been a very important stumbling block or mayne best to describe as
a stone wall I'll pick up the costs.
