Sender BROCHSZTAJN #general

COL HARRY E STEIN <YTPT23A@...>
 

In the Yiskor book for Ostrowiec Swietokrzyski, Poland, I found the
name Sender BROCHSZTAJN. If the entry is correct he was a young child
who most certainly was named after my grand father of the same name
who died in Ostrowiec in 1937. There is also the possibility of
confusion in attempting to recreate the Jewish community after the
war.
Does anyone know anything of Sender BROCHSZTAJN the younger?

Re: New names you've just learned about #general

Faith Kasten writes about a new name discovered for her family.

To Faith and any other JewishGenner who haven't checked the
JGFF recently, or taken the time to enter the new names they're
discovering...or even taken the trouble to enter their names in
the first place. <VBG>

The JGFF should always be your first place to check....believe
it or not there are people who don't read this discussion group
<grin> but have names entered.

Faith asks if anyone is researching the name SKLAR Yup...12
other people are, and you'll find them listed in the
JGFF...hopefully you'll find that there's a connection.

We are averaging 800 NEW ADDITIONS a month to the JGFF...doesn't
it make sense to visit there frequently?

When you uncover a new family name, be sure to enter it into the
most heavily visited database JewishGen provides....

1925 census, Manhattan #general

Joan C. Brown <jcb2502@...>
 

After examining the FHC microfiche of maps for this census, I find it is
not listed in their catalog. How can I obtain the 1925 Manhattan census?
I want to scan it myself as I do not know the exact address.
Should I be able to obtain it through my county's inter-library loan?

hebrew list - Obodovka #general

Arline and Sidney Sachs <sachs@...>
 

I have what I think is a list of names in Hebrew or Yiddish - there are no
vowels.
There is a cover page with about 10 lines and 2 pages of what I assume are
names.
It is >from Obodovka. Will someone please volunteer to translate it so it
can be added to the cemetery project.

some time ago. For the sake of the many new subscribers, I'm offering the
information again. (I actually ordered it >from Amazon.com because of the
previous posting!)

update on MOSAIC, a Chronicle of Five Generations #general

Diane Armstrong <diwriter@...>
 

I recently told JewishGen readers about my family history, MOSAIC, a
Chronicle of Five Generations, which has just been published by Random
House Australia, but I didn't mention some of the family lines included in
the book.

As I mentioned, MOSAIC is a family saga which spans 100 years and four
continents and took me eight years to research. It recreates life in an
orthodox Krakow family at the turn of the century and traces the fortunes
and misfortunes of my remarkable relatives in Poland and then follows the
regeneration of the family in the United States. Israel, England, France
and Australia.

Some of the major family lines vividly described in MOSAIC are:
The Baldingers of Nowy Sacz and Krakow, the Spiras >from Szczakowa and
Krakow, the Fausts and Goldmans >from Lancut and Budy Lancutskie, the
Bratters >from Zolkiew (Zolkwa) and Lwow (Lviv).

HaMelitz number 46, 1899 #general

Theo Travis <travis@...>
 

Further to my previous message, I should have added that I checked the
Jewishgen database for the relevant town and there is no mention of Gudel at
all.

But it says in Pinkas haKehillot that there are a significant number of
Gudel donors and I was told that they are in with the lists of Marijampol
donors for that issue of that year.

Searching: LOWENSTEIN, NY 1920 #general

Theo Travis <travis@...>
 

According to the New York census of 1920 my grandfather William COHEN was
living with his brother in law David LOWENSTEIN at 230 E 2nd St, NYC. None
of the COHEN sisters that we know of were married to a LOWENSTEIN - unless
it was one who stayed in Lithuania, whose name we don't know. In any case
there were only the two of them living there at the time. I would like to
trace living relatives of David LOWENSTEIN to see if they can clear up the
mystery and would welcome any advice. But I live in England, so it may not
be so easy!

Thanks

Re: British liberators of Concentration Camps #general

Stephen Mednick <smednick@...>
 

Darren,

One place to start is the Holocaust Museum in Washington.

When I was there in August I noticed that at the entrance to the Museum they
have the flags of all the allied countries that actually participated in the
liberation of any of the camps. They also had the flags for the various Army
units involved. I was even surprised to see the New Zealand flag on the
wall. Apparently New Zealand Army units had some involvement in liberating
one of the concentration camps in Europe.

Anyway, I'm sure the information you're seeking would be readily available
at the Museum.

Good luck.

Hi,

Does anyone know where I can find records of the two concentration camps
that were liberated by the British in WWII? I believe the camps were
Bergen-Belsen and Neungamme (sp?).
