Re: Is Anyone Familiar with Drohobycz Holocaust Book? #galicia

Richard.Sapon-White@...
 

Searching OCLC, the biggest bibliographic database in the world, I found
the title "List o zagladzie Zydow w Drohobyczu" at the following libraries:

Stanford University and Hoover Institute, Palo Alto, CA
Los Angeles Public Lib.
Central Connecticut State University
Yale, Harvard, Cornell Universities
Library of Congress
US Holocaust Memorial Museum
Univ. of Florida, Gainesville
Hebrew Union College, Cincinnati
Univ. of Pittsburgh
Alliance College, Cambridge Springs, PA
Univ. of Alberta
Cambridge, Oxford Universities
Trinity College, Dublin
University of London

in addition to the British Library (yes, in London). I actually didn't see
that there was a copy at the Univ. of Toronto (my alma mater), but they
might not post that info in OCLC.

Good luck in tracking down a copy.

YV lists answers #hungary

Louis Schonfeld <Lmagyar@...>
 

I may have been deficient in explaining the function of the team leader in
the deportation list project.
The following is a more complete description and the requirements for the
various tasks needed:

There is no Hebrew or Yiddish writing on these lists. The only Hungarian

words may to be found in the column headings and the occupation of the
deportee. The following are the column headings:

1. sequence number 2. name of deportee, for female married deportee also
includes maiden name 3. birth location 4. date of birth 5. mother's maiden
name 6. occupation 7. address of residence. The only "foreign" words to be
found on the list in the occupation. The Jewisgen coordinator for this
project will determine if we are to input the original Hungarian in the
occupation column or the English translation. The English translation for
most common occupation can be found in the H-sig archives. If an occupation
is not listed there, the team leader could put up a post on H-sig asking one
of our numerous Hungarian speaking subscribers for their help. Once we know
the name of the second team leader I can send the list to him/her. With the
list in hand we will go over the column headings again. The technical
liaison with Jewishgen will supervise formatting the data, and will be in
contact as well. The team leader will divide up the list based upon the
number of volunteers and send out copies. He/she will keep informed of the
team members progress. Questions initially >from the volunteer workers should
be submitted to the team leader who will follow up with the appropriate
person in order to get the correct answer. If it is a technical type
question and if he/she can't answer it, then contact is made with the
Jewishgen liaison. If the question is about the meaning of an occupation
which is not on the list then you can forward the question to me (if you
don't have a Hungarian - English dictionary handy). This project is
relatively straightforward and no unique language or computer skills are
required. The main requirements for team leader is the desire to get the job
done in a timely manner and to make a contribution of time and energy to
this important work. The requirement for team members is the time commitment
to get the job done and also to make the contribution of time and energy.

Have you uploaded your gedcom to FTJP ? #general

James H Gross <larklane@...>
 

Hello,
I personally know of quite a few Jewish genealogy
researchers who work on their trees. A few of these
researchers have a JGFF listing (Jewishgen website)
but most -do not- have a FTJP listing. As a person
who continually tries to find additional relatives, whether
dead or alive, I find it curious, and indeed,surprising that
many of you are not yet taking advantage of this very
useful database.

If you are worried about personal information getting out
on your living relatives, you can easily filter it out with
software. See my webpage for info on that topic.
Jewishgen's FTJP is a very handy site for placing your tree
in a centrally located and searchable web database. Even
if you have a family tree webpage, this database is an
invaluable way of making it easy for people to find your family.

If you are going to spend all that time inputting your names,
calling up relatives, and creating a family tree, why not share
your existing tree via FTJP ? There is always the possibility
that someone >from NJ (or any state) will call you up long
distance ( I called Conn. yesterday) and tell you that they
have positively identified your tree as being linked via a
previous generation.You are doing yourself a favor by uploading!

landsmanschaft database #galicia

Joyce Field <jfield@...>
 

JewishGen has an InfoFile on landsmanschaftn
<http://www.jewishgen.org/infofiles/landshaf.txt > but it is quite
out of date and incomplete. When a chairperson of a group dies,
there is quite frequently no replacement and the group becomes
inactive. It would be difficult trying to keep such a database
updated. Yad Vashem maintains a list of landsmanschaftn in Israel
with the last known contact person.

Depending on which versions of software (Windows and Word) you are

Searching STERN, KASKEY, NEUBAUER, SCHLEY, SPECTOR, #general

Joey Spector <joeyspector@...>
 

I am somewhat new to this, and am looking for any info on the following
branches of my family:

STERN- >from somewhere in Russia. The oral history is that they originated
in Spain, then France, then o Germany where they picked up the name Stern,
and then to Russia. My ggg grandfather's name was Raymond. He had eleven
sons by his first wife, and 3 daughters and one son, my gr. gr. grandfather
Frank Stern, with his second wife. Frank (in Yiddish Fraike?/Ephraim) was
bribed out of the Russian military around 1885 and married to Ida Scpiegal.
They emigrated to Philadelphia in 1892 and had 4 children: Joseph (my
great-grandfather b.1893), Elizabeth, Sarah, and Julie.

SCHLEY- may have orig. been Schlyach (? spelling). >from Belaya Tserkov,
Ukraine. My gg granfather was Jesse "Sheeka", married to Jennie "Yente"
Mahalevski b.1875 (have not found this name anywhere!).They eventually
emigrated to Philadelphia. He worked in the garment industry- and was the
president of some sort of labor or social organization. They had 10
children: Elizabeth (my g grandmother), Sam, Ben, Jake, Ike, Stella,
Bessie, Alexander, Moish, and Albert.

KASKEY- I have very little info b/c I think the name was changed upon
immigration to U.S., since Kaskey seems to be an Irish name. Sam and Yette
Kaskey immigrated to Crisfield, MD, and had 4 children: Victor (b.1900),
Molly, Sally, and Sidney (b 1902) I think they were in the funeral business.
They left for Philadelphia b/c of a stong KKK presence in the town. Any
suggestions of possible original surnames would be great- I am stuck!

NEUBAUER- >from Wielkie, Oczy, Poland. Town was called Vilkutch in Yiddish.
Moses and Cecelia (says Cirel on immigration record) had 5 Children: Sarah
(my g grandmother, b. 1903), Isador (he came over on 2/5/1909 on the ship
Dominion via Bremon and Liverpool, which listed his name as Issac), Harry,
Lewis, and Esther. They all came to Philadelphia. Cecelia's immigration
record said she came over on the ship Haverford via Liverpool on August
[not clear] 1910. The name is also spelled Neibauer by some.

SPECTOR- >from Berdichev and Maknovka, Ukraine. My ggg granfather was Moishe
Spector, married to Sura Gittel.Their children were: Paisie married to
Chave Lieberman. Children emigrated to Montreal. Benjamin married to Ida
(Chaika). They went to Boston Bluma married to Isidore Rubin. Also to
Boston. Ruchel married to Israel Lieberman. Also to Boston. Michel married
to Sosie Schupack. They were the first to come to Montreal via Liverpool.

Solomon "Shlomo" married to Rose (my gg grandparents). His children were
Joseph Yoilik married to Miriam. Isaac (b. 1891) married to Gertrude
Carson. Samuel married to Freda Kotlarsky. Pauline married to Frank Bush.
Eva married to Eli Klein. Fannie married to Harry Rubin. Frank married to
Frances Berenbaum. Most went to Philadelphia, except Joseph Yoilik, who's
family went to Cuba, and then to NY after WWII.

CARSON/ KRUSCHEN: the name was changed >from Kruschen to Carson by
immigration officers. Do not know country of origin. My gg grandparents
Michael and Fannie lived in Philadelphia. Michael had a brother who's son
is Jack Kruschen- a popular actor >from the 50's and 60's. (I've think his
mother's name was Ethel and they were >from Manitoba, Canada, originally).
Kruschen seems to be an unusual name- any info on the name or the actor's
family would be great!

PRESSER- >from ? Russia. Yeshua and Rose had 4 children- Doris, Morris, and
Meyer, and Jacob (my g grandfather b. 1894?) who immigrated to Philadelphia
when he was a few yrs. old, married Fannie Ackerman. They had 4 children:
Pearl, Rhea, Doris, and Sidney.

ACKERMAN- >from L'viv, Ukraine. My ggparent's names were Philip and Chaya
Sara. My ggrandmother's name was Fannie. She married Jacob Presser. She had
7 siblings: Jennie, Sadie, Max, Sophie, Sam, Dora, and Pearl. They all came
over to Philadelphia before WWI, except for Fannie, her mother and two
sisters, who came over after WWI. They also had one unknown brother who
died fighting for the Austrian Army in WWI. He had a son named Harry.

Any info would be very helpful, and much appreciated!
