Re: WWI personnel registers #general

Nolan Altman recently posted a ViewMate page of WWI personnel register.
It seems that he's gotten a complete translation, but in the past I've
had similar pages for family members that were peppered with
abbreviations I wasn't able to find in German abbreviation webpages. If
you run into a case like that, there is a German email group called
milex.de that is devoted to WWI. They have members who know a great deal
about these abbreviations and can point you to links about information
regarding your family member's unit.

Re: Rabbi Josef TAUBENSCHLAG of Tarnow #galicia

With the kind help of Russ Maurer, I've learned that he married Chaya
Kurz. JRI-Poland then led me to find the names of two children: Rudolf
(who married Helena Steigler) and Adolf. Do any of you have any leads
to any other children or any descendants who might be living today?
Thank you.

Hi all,

I've posted a vital record I think may be Polish or Romanian. It looks
to be an address on a Post Card for which I need a full translation. It
is on ViewMate at the following address

Holocaust-period records now available to members of Gesher Galicia #galicia

Tony Kahane <tkahane@...>
 

Gesher Galicia recently announced the completed indexing and uploading
onto the freely available All Galicia Database of two important sets of
Holocaust-period records:

- Debica-area Holocaust-period death testimonies, held in the Rzeszow
State Archive
These are testimonies, provided by people who survived, of Jews who
died during the Holocaust - all but a handful of them murdered. They were
gathered after the end of the war in Europe.

We should have mentioned earlier that Gesher Galicia is indebted to Russ
Maurer and Mark Jacobson for their valuable work on these records.

- Doctors' Questionnaires, 1941-1943, >from the Przemysl State Archive
and AGAD, Warsaw
These are detailed, four-page forms (some with face photos) that Jewish
medical and health-care workers were obliged to complete under the Nazi
occupation. The people named included doctors, dentists, dental
technicians, nurses, midwives, radiologists, cosmeticians, medical
students and others.

Gesher Galicia is pleased to be able to announce that we have put both
these sets of records, with their spreadsheets of indexes, into a new
Galician Holocaust Records section of the Members' Portal on the Gesher
Galicia web site. Currently paid-up members of Gesher Galicia (and only
they) will therefore be able to view these documents freely, for their
personal use.

Conference Blog on the JewishGen Facebook Page #general

Ann Rabinowitz
 

This summer, I will be attending the IAJGS Conference in Seattle, WA,
August 7-12, 2016 . Usually, you are used to reading my posts on various
topics on the Jewish Genealogy Facebook Pages, the JewishGen Digests or
the JewishGen Blog. Now, you will have the opportunity to see my posts
for the duration of the Conference *only* on the JewishGen Facebook Page
which you should "like" and sign up for.

For those of you who are attendees at the Conference, you may see me at a
session, perhaps in the resource room, at a lab, or a luncheon or a social
event. I'll try and cover a bit of it all. So, if you recognize me, please
do stop and say hello. Tell me what you are doing, what you are learning
and what brick walls you are trying to break down.

If you are unable to attend the Conference, be sure to look at the
JewishGen Facebook Page as I will be posting there once a day. Also,
remember to get "LIVE" to see gavel-to-gavel coverage of the sessions. In
this way, you will be able to keep up with what is happening at the
Conference.

I'm looking forward to interacting with you all and learning a lot at the
Conference. See you soon!!!

Chief Genealogist of MyHeritage to share Israel Genealogy On The
Internet at JGS Cleveland

Daniel Horowitz, the chief genealogist at MyHeritage, is the featured
speaker at the Wednesday, August 3rd meeting of the Jewish Genealogy

introduction to Hebrew, the keywords needed and the translation tools
available will assist with the vast array of places where one can find
information about people that have been born, lived or died in Israel.

Daniel Horowitz was a teacher and the study guide editor of the family
history project, "Searching for My Roots" for over 15 years in
Venezuela. He holds board level positions at the Israel Genealogy
Research Association (IGRA) and at the International Association of

Help interpreting late annotation on a Berlin death record, SCHUELER JASTROW #germany

Irene Newhouse
 

I've posted an image of a Berlin death record >from 1911 on ViewMate:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM49437

I can read all the normal parts. However, someone penciled something
on the page at the upper right. I interpret the first line to mean
that was done some time in 1952; the preceding numbers are day and
month. That in itself has me scratching my head. The 2nd line reads
breast cancer. Ergo, possible cause of death. But why add that so very
much later? The last line, I can't make heads or tails of at all;
that's what I'd like help with.

Lest someone theorize the notes were added at the instigation of a
descendant: I have Rosalie JASTROW nee SCHUELER's marriage record from
Berlin dated 1890. Berlin births have been released to 1899, and I've
found no evidence there were any children.

Thanks in advance! Irene Newhouse Kihei HI USA einew137@yahoo.com

Where did my GGrandfather originate? #general

Ivor Carr
 

I have recently recommenced research into my maternal ggrandparents
genealogy, but have not been able to determine >from where my ggrandfather
came before arriving in Liverpool, UK.

He appears to have arrived >from Russian Poland in about 1867 with the name
Mordchi Goldberg, but sometime before he applied for naturalisation some 25
years later, changed it to Morris Samuels. His parents were Samuel and
Sarah Eva Goldberg, so I suppose he may have adopted his father's given name
for a reason which at the moment escapes me.

I have placed parts of two documents in Viewmate. They are separate
documents, but comprise parts of his application for Naturalisation and the
acceptance of that application. The references to where he came >from in
Poland in both therefore refer to the same location.

was, will be very much appreciated. Also, if It can be positively
identified, do records exist for the location, and how can they be accessed?
