Dear Marcia

Does anyone know if there are any
records for the ships arriving at Vera Cruz around this time?
I have been doing some research for a friend and ordered an LDS film for
passenger arrivals into Galveston, Texas. Vera Cruz ship arrivals were also on
that film. I don't know if that is a consistent pattern but you could check it
out.

Re: NARA & SSDI Order #general

Corin Goodwin <corin@...>
 

From: "David Gershon Leventhal" <David_Gershon@iname.com>
Back in the beginning of September, I sent a request to NARA for
a ship passenger arrival record, and an SSDI request. In both
cases, I supplied the information and / or fees they requested,
yet I have received no response >from NARA or the FOIA since. I
know that the wait is long in many cases, but shouldn't I receive
some notification that my request was received?
Not necessarily. It took *months* for them to get back to me, and then
(unfortunately) it was with bad news -- they couldn't find any of my
requested info.

You can certainly try calling or writing again -- it can't hurt -- but
the long wait seems pretty standard.

Searching: LESSER, KRZESINSKA, WILNER, WOLMAN, Warszawa, #general

Pawel Tomaszewski <petomasz@...>
 

Preparing the monograph of Prof. Jan Czochralski (1885-1953), famous
polish metallurgist and chemist, I have some questions to answer. Could you
help me ?

1. It concerns the aid of Prof. Czochralski offered to two Jewish women
during World War II: Leonora (or: Eleonora) LESSER and B. KRZESINSKA. I
don't know what was their residence before WWII. I suppose only that it
was Warsaw in Poland. Both were kept in hiding in the house of Czochralski
at the address: ul. Nabielaka in Warsaw (Warszawa), Poland. Could you help
me in verifying this fact ? How to find the families of those women ?
What institution could help in my search ?

2. I have also another problem concerning the last War. I am searching the
owners
(or directors ?) of the metallurgic wholesale firm "Graff S." (address
before the War:
ul. Grzybowska 10, Warsaw, Poland) - A. WILNER and M. WOLMAN. What happened
to those men ? Are the families living now in Israel ? During the War,
Prof. Czochralski according to the gentleman agreement, was a formal owner
of the "Graff S." establishment. He paid some money to the Warsaw Ghetto
(to former owners ?). Could you help me in the verification of this fact ?

Were those women and men saved >from Holocaust ? I will be grateful for any
information that would help me in finding their families. I wish to establish
contact with any of their descendants or relatives.

With the best regards

JewishGen needs your help to check town names #hungary

Carol Skydell <skydell@...>
 

In conjunction with our soon to be launched ShtetlSchleppers
program which will be an educational/research oriented/record
searching/information gathering trip to ancestral towns and
shtetls, Lou Schonfeld pointed out that there were many errors
in the towns we are listing. Because we are approaching the
Hungarian Minister of Tourism, Lou suggested that these
corrections could possibly be made by members of this SIG who
have reference books as sources of information. It's even
possible we have towns listed that are not any longer in hungary.
It's much too big a job for one person so if we can attract some
volunteers to tackle this task within the next week or 10 days,
it would be a major help. Please get in touch with me directly
and I'll email you a piece of the list. All I ask that you do
is copy and show the correct spelling of the town as well as
indicate the country if the town is no longer in Hungary.

Many thanks for whatever help can be given by as many as possible.
