Svencionys #lithuania

JoyceField <jfield@...>
 

Follow-up to Steven Weiss:

Some time ago I received a translation of one chapter >from the Svencionys
yizkor book. Unfortunately, it was in a typescript and not in an
electronic format. Therefore, I had to find someone to either scan the
material or type it into a wordprocessing document.

Simultaneously, I had to locate the landsmanschaft in Israel, which was
done, and I recently received permission >from the landsmanschaft to
publish on the Yizkor Book site of JewishGen the translation of the yizkor
book.

I do not have a copy of the book. If anyone wishes to translate additional
chapters of the book, we would certainly publish the material on the Yizkor
Book site at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html. Please
contact me privately.

Dakota settlements #general

Jill Florence Lackey <lackassc@...>
 

My ggrandmother's family settled in one of the Dakota settlements,
organized by the Jewish Alliance. Does anyone know how to access the
names and other information on the families that settled there? The
settlements/colonies were
organized in the 1880s.

West Ham cemetery #general

Ben Elton <ben@...>
 

A few questions about the West Ham cemetery, London, England.

1. Has the register (with Hebrew names) been published?

2. What sort of state are the stones in?

3. How do you get in?

I hope everyone had a good Yom Tov,

Ben Elton

Alsacian Jews #general

David Goldman <davic@...>
 

Someone recently asked why Alsacian Jews in France did not speak Yiddish,
even when they were under German control years ago, despite the fact that
German Jews did speak a variety of Yiddish.
Could someone clarify this issue?

Thanks,

German Translation #general

Peskay, Elissa <Elissa.Peskay@...>
 

This is >from the letterhead on a letter sent by my ggf in 1936, he was from
Frankfurt AM.
Under his name, it says "kohlen-vertretungen". Vertretungen translates as
agencies and kohlen as coals, does anyone know what the two together mean?
Is it the name of a company? Was there an official "Coal Agency" or
something?
The line under that says "Fernsprecher: Spessart 66314" Spessart 66314 is
the phone number but I could not find a definition for "Fernsprecher"
I did post this on Jewishgen translations but received no response.

Thanks for any assistance,

Archive Locations for Posen Jewish Communities #general

Steven Fischbach <fischri@...>
 

Other than records in the LDS library collection, are there any archives
that contain records of geneological interest for persons that lived in
Jewish Communities in the former German province of Posen (between the
Second Partition of Posen and 1900?)
I am particularly interested in the towns of Samter, Pleschen, Wreschen,
Wissek, and Tirschtiegel. Would the archives be in Germany (such as the
Centrum Judaicum, Berlin) or in Poland (Poznan?)

Lodz Cemetery8 #general

Arthur S. Abramson <abramson@...>
 

Sandra Lilienthal has asked whether one can search for family buried in
the Lodz, Poland cemetery without actually being there. Here is one way.
Write to:
Mr. Symcha Keller
Jewish Community Office
78 Zachodnia str.
Lodz 90-725
POLAND
Enclose a postal reply coupon. Mr. Keller is the Secretary of the Jewish
Community of Lodz. He has a large card file of, one hopes, all the burials
in the large cemetery now in use. He told me a little over a year ago that
they are slowly entering the data into computer-readable files. Each card
gives at least the name of the person, his or her last address, and the
location of the grave. He, as well as the caretaker at the cemetery itself,
has a large chart of th graves. The farther you make your way into the
cemetery, the more like a jungle it is.
If Mr. Keller can help you, it would be nice to send the Jewish
Community of Lodz a gift. It has many needs. Dolar check can be accepted.
