Dear Mr. Zwieback,

Cannot it be REDE? The settlement Rede is in Veszprem county, Hungary. It
lies about 25 km north of Zirc in the Northern Bakony Hills. Its present day
is Rede as well.

Sincerely,
Orsolya Zirci (Miss)

A list of Viennese inhabitants around 1800 shows someone born in RETHE,

name of the Rethe town.

ShtetLinks Pages #lithuania

Chuck Weinstein <cweinstein@...>
 

We at ShtetLinks agree with Davida's sentiments that it is really
wonderful to see the number of new Lithuanian pages that are springing
up on ShtetLinks. If you have the desire to make such a page, we are
here to help and are ready to get your page up as soon as possible.
However, it is up to the page owner to place the proper links on the
page. If you are preparing a ShtetLinks page, it certainly is a great
idea to include a link to the Litvak SIG. See you at ShtetLinks!

I hope that someone give you the web site. I,too, have been looking for
that. I lost it too.
I see that you are in Rochester. My home town is Rochester, actually
Brighton. Where are you?

The list of Lithuanian shtetls on the Shtetlinks site is truly impressive, and
growing every day. Everyone is to be commended for their efforts.

If your page is already in place, or if you are in the process of building
one, please be sure to request that the page include a link back to the
LitvakSIG Home Page.

Success Story! #general

Kathy Taub <taub99@...>
 

Just wanted to share my success story. I had a great aunt
Syril(Sadie) Taub who was "disowned" for marrying a gentile. My father
and all his cousins were led to believe that their aunt had died at a
young age, although rumors of the marriage were whispered. I had no
way to trace this aunt not having a married name. Two days ago I
received a general query asking about Sadie Taub born in 1898. Making
a long story short: It was Syril's daughter who had no idea who her
mother was. Syril kept her family a secret and led the life of an
upper class protestant, even changing her name. The daughter has grown
up with no family, not even knowing her mother's real name until after
her death. A surname search on the Net led her to the Jewishgen
family finder which listed my email for TAUB. She sent me a vague
message- the rest is history. Syril and her siblings have all passed
away, but the cousins are ecstatic at this family find!! It has
solved a mystery spanning decades and led to a cousin they never knew
they had. In one night the daughter discovers she's Jewish and has
cousins! I don't think she has recovered yet.
You never know what is around the corner! Thank you JewishGen!
Kathy Taub

Shalom, Genners,

Has anyone had experience working with the International Red Cross Cards
for Survivors? I would like to know what some of the abbreviations refer
to, as well as which organization may have helped resettle survivors to
South Africa.

Thanks in advance for anticipated knowledgeable helpers.

Searching: Leah NOTOVICH/NOTOWICZ/NOTOVITZ of Bialystok, b.1912 #general

Miriam Deitcher <deitcher@...>
 

My grandmother was Leah NOTOVICH/NOTOWICZ/NOTOVITZ >from Bialystok. She
was born in 1912 or so and somehow ended up in Chicago prior to my
mother's birth in 1940. I know nothing else about her and there's
nobody alive to give me more details. She's not listed in the SSDI and
I don't know her SS#. She died in Chicago sometime in the late 60's but
I'm not sure which year. And I don't know the specific town she was
from in Bialystok. This is currently the shortest branch (by far) on my
family tree. If anyone has any related info or any suggestions as to
where I might look, please contact me privately. (Her married name was
Leah TAFLOVE.)
