Reichsvereinigung der Juden in Deutschland: Letter F #general

Lande
 

As I have posted previously, I am gradually preparing a database identifying
all Jews who were required by the Gestapo to register with the
Reichsvereinigung der Juden in Deutschland. I have now compiled 1,613 names
where the family name begins with the letter F. I had previously compiled
names beginning with the letters A,B,C,D,E and L. In each case I have
compared the card information with other non-public information, such as
from the International Tracing Service and the Bundesarchiv's
Residentenliste, and included information on each person's fate, where
known, e.g. deportation, emigration or death at place of residence. Each
card often also includes such information as local address, profession and
name of parents. This information was not included in the database but can
be examined on the card itself.

While all registrants were resident in Germany, usually in the late 1930s,
many were born outside Germany, e.g 87 persons in Posen and even 7 in New
York City.

The database for the letter F, and other letters, can be accessed at Steve
Morse's website, under Holocaust and Roof Organization. [MODERATOR: The
actual link is http://www.stevemorse.org/jewishroof/jewishroof.html ]

If anyone wishes to obtain a copy of an individual card they may contact me
at plande@ushmm.org .

I look forward to discussing this collection and other non-public sources of
information in Seattle.

Cyrillic font - cursive (script) #general

Nancy Levin
 

Hi - I have been writing some material on specific Jewish metrikal
records >from Bialystok and am now trying to find a Cyrillic font which I
can buy / access / download / use which includes the *entire* set of
Cyrillic cursive (script) letters.

I have access to the printed Cyrillic font and most of the cursive
(script) letters through Microsoft Word for Mac. But, while my
Microsoft Word does includes most of the Cyrillic cursive letters, for
some reason, my software does *not* include the cursive capital "Ge" which
can be found in Shea and Hoffman's "In Their Words: Translation Guide for
Russian".

The Cyrillic cursive, capital "Ge" which they have in their book looks
just like the "Ge" listed in 19th century handwritten records >from
Bialystok. The one which comes with MS Word for Mac does not. (It's
just a capital version of the printed "Ge," not the cursive letter.)

I've scoured the Internet and can't find it in font libraries which
offer different language fonts.

I just wrote to one of the authors of the aforementioned book to see if
they can provide details on their font. In the meantime, perhaps one of
you can lead me to a source?

Thank you.

Brick Wall - Aron KANELSKIY/KANELSKY of Uman #general

Bella Tseytlin
 

Dear all,

I have been searching for any for information about my late grandfather.

Born Aron Berko KANELSKIY, in Uman on 10 May, 1885 to Berko & Malka
Kanelskiy and died on 25 October 1949 in Karaganda, Kazakhstan, where
he & his 2nd family was evacuated during WW2 >from Odessa.

His first wife was Basya/Baya - Shimonova, surname unknown. She died
c. 1917 - 1918, when my dad was 2 years old. The family had 3 boys:
Khaskel or Khariton, born 1904, then Boris, and my father Yakov, born
1915.

My older cousins tell me that Aron being a member of RSDRP & worrying
persecutions left for America with 10 other men before WW1 and lived
there for one year. He has returned to Russia, when the party he
belong to became RSDRP(B). All but one man returned to Russia.

Aron's second wife (as stated on podvignaroda website) Faina Isakovna.
Together they had 3 more children - Iosif, born around 1926 and killed
during first few months of WW2 and girls - Oma and Musia, Musia being
the youngest of three.

Musia had a girl who died ~ a teenager, Oma was married to
russified German (per Google translation). And while on the
subject of names - have anyone else come across name Oma?

I was told that both girls made Aliya, probably in the late 1990s.

I have been searching All Odessa Database, Ancestry.com, Family
search & Steve Morse with variation of the surname - no records
whatsoever. Could not find anything on Karaganda's either.

I've posted 2 family photos in hope that may be someone will find
names or faces familiar.

They are on ViewMate at the following address:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM49430
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM49431

Also I am posting the summary of a manifest with information that
resembles my gfather particulars, i.e. year of birth, town he was born
& occupation but am confused about it being South America and not
America and year of travel. It is at the following address:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM49432

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Handwritten index for same person does not help either, as there is no
additional information of who paid for the passage, or names of family
members left behind.

Argentina has no vital records in English beyond 1895 and I could not
find anything on JewishGen.org for Karaganda. I would appreciate any
suggestions which will assist me in my search.

Thank you very much.

New records on All Galicia Database; update on Fond 701 indexing project #poland

Tony Kahane <tkahane@...>
 

Gesher Galicia is pleased to announce the addition of two more sets of
vital records >from the Central State Historical Archives of Ukraine,
Lviv (TsDIAL), on the All Galicia Database. This database is freely
searchable and available to all. See: http://search.geshergalicia.org

a) Grzymalow
- Jewish Marriages 1919-1939, 1942. Fond 701, Series 1, Vol. 33-34.
(264 records)
Grzymalow was the ancestral town of Pamela Weisberger, and this
indexing project has been carried out in her memory. Exceptionally for
these records, we have also extracted the names of the witnesses at
the marriages and of the rabbi officiating. These are the only known
and accessible Jewish vital records >from Grzymalow in any archive.
There is, however, a set of death records >from the town for the period
1919-1936, which is held at the Civil Registration Office (USC) in
Warsaw and which in theory ought to be publicly available in 2017.

b) Narajow. Fond 701, Series 1, Volumes 232-249. (807 records in total)
- Jewish Births 1905, 1911, 1920-1922, 1924-1926, 1930-1936 (395 records)
- Jewish Marriages 1905, 1913, 1920-1926, 1930-1936 (114 records)
- Jewish Deaths 1906-1907, 1913, 1920-1926, 1930-1936 (298 records)
These records constitute about a half of all the records for Narajow
in the Lviv archives. We are continuing to work on the remaining
records.

Update on progress on indexing Fond 701
We reported earlier on the status of our indexing project of Jewish
vital records >from the Ukrainian State archives, in particular from
Fond 701 in the Lviv archives. Out of 63 towns with records in this
fond, Gesher Galicia has now indexed all the records >from 27 towns:
Bialy Kamien, Borszczow, Brody, Brzezany, Bukaczowce, Czortkow,
Drohobycz, Grzymalow, Horodenka, Husiatyn, Jagielnica, Jezierzany,
Kolomyja, Kozielniki, Kudrynce, Mosty Wielkie, Nadworna, Okopy,
Podwoloczyska, Probuzna, Sambor, Stary Sambor (Stare Miasto), Tyczyn,
Winniki, Zbaraz, Zimna Woda, and Zloczow.

In addition, over 90% of the large collection of vital records from
Lwow have been completed. Gesher Galicia has also done the greater
part of the records for: Lwow-Zniesienie, Mielnica, Mosciska, Narajow,
Turka, and Zolkiew.

By the fall of this year, we will have also indexed and uploaded all
the remaining records for Narajow, Stryj, Turka, and Zolkiew, for
which indexing we have received generous donations >from supporters.

We are also working at present on Jezierna and Zborow. Also in our
indexing project for the current period of vital records in the Lviv
archives are records from: Bolechow, Budzanow, Grodek Jagiellonski,
Rozdol, Rudki, Stanislawow, and Swirz.

In addition, over 90% of the large collection of vital records >from Lwow
have been completed. Gesher Galicia has also done the greater part of
the records for: Lwow-Zniesienie, Mielnica, Mosciska, Narajow, Turka,
and Zolkiew.

By the fall of this year, we will have also indexed and uploaded all the
remaining records for Narajow, Stryj, Turka, and Zolkiew, for which
indexing we have received generous donations >from supporters.

We are also working at present on Jezierna and Zborow. Also in our
indexing project for the current period of vital records in the Lviv
archives are records from: Bolechow, Budzanow, Grodek Jagiellonski,
Rozdol, Rudki, Stanislawow, and Swirz.

Re: Allan Jordan's response to "My Great Grandfather Never Died!?" #general

The place of burial is often completely unrelated to the place of
death. All of my family members who have lived in NYC all their
lives, and some who moved to New Jersey, are buried either in New
Jersey or on Long Island. And it's the New Jersey ones who are
buried on Long Island. That's because they belonged to Burial
Societies or Fraternal Societies, like the Workmen's Circle or The
Knights of Pythias, for example. Burial and death location cannot
be correlated like that.

Looking For EBENHOLZ Family From Zaklicyn, Poland #general

Annette Meyers
 

My mother Esther EBENHOLZ WEISS, was born in Zaklicyn, Poland, part of
Brzesco. She came to New York in 1920 with her younger brother. Her
older brother Mendel EBENHOLZ stayed in Poland, married and had
children. After the war, my mother searched through Jewish agencies,
but found no survivors. Last week, a friend who is a member of
Jewishgen, sent me a copy of a listing of remembrance for Mendel
EBENHOLZ >from Zaklicyn, Poland, in Yad Vashem, by his granddaughter,
Yael BUBERMAN-ATIAS (I am not sure of the translation >from Hebrew),
listing her mother as Ruth (Basha?), born in 1939, in Zaklicyn. The
zip code was listed as 96920, which is Jerusalem.
The Yad Vashem page may be found here:

I would appreciate help in finding my cousins.
