Re: Searching family info on Moshe SHARETT (SHERTOK) #general

MBernet@...
 

In a message dated 98-11-22 21:59:14 EST, you write:

I am searching family information on Moshe Sharett (former Prime
Minister of Israel). His original name was Shertok.

It was Tchertok before it became Shertok. A cousin of his, ordained as
a rabbi by JTS, probably in the 1960's, was at one point the editor of a
Jewish magazine and publishing house in NYC--can't recall the name but
it was affiliated with the Mapai movement in Israel.

This Tchertok cousin (I'm not quite sure of the spelling) lived in NYC 10
years ago in Washington Square Village (an apartment complex south of NYU),
and was an active member of the Conservative Synagogue of Fifth Ave (or Fifth Ave Cons Syn), at 11 East 11th Street, nyc 10003

susskind <nrg@...>
 

Just learned of a cousin , Ariel EMMER, living in Metula, Israel. I was
told he has a computer and an e-mail address. If there is anyone in
that part of Israel who would be kind enough to find this information
for me, I would be able to write to him and establish a relationship.
Thanks in advance for any help received.

FW: Historians and Hungarian Jewish History #hungary

Louis Schonfeld <lmagyar@...>
 

Gyorgy Ujlaki sent me the names listed below of Hungarian researchers of the
Holocaust and Hungarian Jewish history..
Nearly all the material described by Gyorgy was written in Hungarian. There
are two works that I know have been translated into English. One, the very
important book by Jeno Levay (also spelled Levai) The Black Book of
Hungarian Jewry (A detailed and comprehensive review and description of the
crimes perpetrated on Hungarian Jewry during the Holocaust) published in
1948 by the Central Organization of Hungarian Jews ;and two, Ilona
Beneschofsky wrote a pamphlet on the History of Hungarian Jews. If there are
other works by these authors in English or Hebrew please share that
information with the entire h-sig.

Elek Karsai published works on Hungarian Holocaust, including documents of
worker's battalions.
Jeno Levay published several volumes on Hungarian Holocaust, Wallenberg, the
Budapest ghetto, etc.
Ilona Beneschovszky published several works on Holocaust in Hungary.
Rabbi Arthur Geyer wrote a bibliography of the Hungarian Holocaust. As it
came out of print, it was banned by the Communist power, and all but a
handful copies were crushed in paper mill.
Laszlo Karsai, son of Elek, published studies.
Szabocs Szita researched workers batalions, and published several volumes.
Agnes Sagvari wrote studies of Zionist resistance movement.
Ember Maria published a volume with photos of the deportation of Hungarian
Jews.
These are only the well-known names.

Budapest directories Translations please. #hungary

CASHEL3776@...
 

I am so proud of the results of the Budabest directories that Janos did. I
reconize my G-ggfather, his brother and some of the brothers family. However I
can't translate any of it including the descriptions of the directories. I
wonder if someone with the ability to translate would help me out here. I was
one lucky enough to have family in each of the directories. Again Thanx Janos.

My family surname is GARTENFELD if someone is able to help out here. Can trade
US research. I know my way through the WWI registrations, most ships lists,
census records and live in the capital of Nevada for Marriage, death and birth
records. I also have access to almost all of the cemetery records of Nevada.
Or can translate >from Galic (Irish) to English I just know I'll get a lot of
requests for that one, LOL).

This is the site with the records on them.

Thanx all. For the ones celebrating Thanksgiving, I'm full, but at least I got
all my dishes done, and all 8 grandchildren have gone to bed. Hope you had a
Happy and safe one.

Heartfelt thanks to everyone to answered me. You are an awesome group. I
can't believe the number of wonderful responses we've received. Although my
mother-in-law managed to find someone on her own, your replies have opened
some new connections, and we appreciate the help immensely.

I'm discovering that we've all been touched by the Holocaust in very
personal ways, even we think we think it was some horrible event that
happened to other families.

Thanks again,

Rita

Re: Kelme directory #lithuania

ROBERT WEISS
 

In response to my message on the Litvak SIG Digest
mentioning the Kelme Directory, Feige sent me a message
with the following questions. I thought the answers might
be of general interest:

I saw your letter re: the Kelme directory in the
LitvakSIG digest. Do you have it? What is it
exactly? Are there people >from all over
Lithuania on it? My family was >from Rassein,
Kedainiai, and Shadova.
Any chance I might find some of my family on that list?
The Kelme Directory is a list of Jewish residents of
Kelme, Lithuania over the last 300 years. The names come
from many sources--vital and tax records, newspapers, books,
bank records, etc., and the directory indicates where you
can get more information. The list is available to be searched
on the Web, and I have a copy on my home computer. Since
Rassein, Kedainiai, and Shadova are neighboring towns, and
there was much travel within Lithuania for weddings and
business, there is a chance that your relatives may have
been recorded in Kelme at some time.
