I have just followed a link on http://www.ajexroh.org.uk/record.php to
the Jewish Military Museum for its database of servicemen but find it
has closed. Is there some other site where that data can be accessed?

Holocaust by Bullets adds sites #general

Tony Hausner
 

Some of you may know of the work of Father Desbois, a French priest who has
been visiting the sites of many of the mass killings in Eastern Europe,
Russia, etc. He has performed memorial services at these sites and interviewed
older residents who were witnesses. His center is Yahad - In Unum. His book is
"Holocaust by Bullets." I have heard him speak several times and he is an
inspiring person.

They have recently added a Kalush page and will add some of the pages below in
the near future. Borschov has been there for awhile.

(Spain) Spanish Lawmakers Approved Law Giving Descendants of Inquisition Rights of Dual Citizenship #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

On June 11, the Spanish Parliament passed legislation granting dual citizenship
to descendants of Sephardic Jews who fled during the Inquisition. Potentially,
3.5 million Sephardic Jews who settled in across the world may apply for dual
citizenship although it is estimated that only 90,000 people will apply. The
law becomes effective in October 1, 2015. The previous law >from 1924 permitted
Sephardic Jews to become citizens but they had to give up their previous
citizenship. The new law permits dual citizenship. Having a Spanish passport
permits the holder the right to work and live anywhere in the 28-Member
European Union.

Applicants will have to have their Jewish heritage vetted by the Spanish
Federation of Jewish Communities or by rabbis where they live - they do not
have to be practicing Jews. In addition, applicants will have to pass tests
on Spanish or Ladino languages, Spanish culture and prove they have a
connection to modern day Spain (i.e. donating to a Spanish charity or buying
Spanish property). To apply, interested parties will have to go to Spain at
their own expense. The requirements for application are similar to those of
anyone applying for Spanish citizenship, unlike Portuguese law, which became
effective this Spring, which only requires vetting of applicants ancestry
by Jewish organizations

The law will expire after three years. The website of the Federation of
Jewish Communities in Spain has a detailed explanation on how to file the
application see: http://www.fcje.org/nacionalidad-3/ (scroll down the
page for the English translation). At this time there are no instructions on
how to file the application.

Shipping Lines and manifests #bessarabia

Rachelle Litt
 

Hi Genners.
You have all been most helpful with past questions so here
is another. What shipping Lines should I be focusing on for emigration
from Soroca Moldova, Chernvitzi Ukraine to Argentina in the early
1900's - about 1930? Most of the family who came to American went by
way of Bremen through Warsaw. Would this be the same for Argentina?
The ship might have might have passed through Brazil first.

I am looking for Meyer Znayde and his wife Tsilya and their children Samuel
and Sarah (there was a third child also but I do not have the name)
.After living in Argentina they left for Brazil and arrived in Brazil
landing at the pier of Santos in 1936. I am looking for this manifest
as well. Sarah was born January 26, 1923, that is the only birthdate I
have. Thank you all in advance for your help.

On Saturday, June 6 the Global Family Reunion was held in New York City with
opportunities to watch it live in various areas. They have now posted the
archives by livestreaming at: http://globalfamilyreunion.com/webcast/.

While it is broken into three areas: Main Stage, Theater and Gallery as
genealogists we probably will find the speakers in the Gallery of most
interest http://livestream.com/GlobalFamilyReunion/gallery and some in the
Theater http://livestream.com/GlobalFamilyReunion/theater.

Exciting News for Researchers of Zgierz and Surrounding Towns #lodz #poland

Joe Ross
 

Update on the Phase 3 of the Zgierz Indexing Project

18 additional years of Zgierz records available for indexing.

We wanted to update you on the exciting news we have for researchers
with an interest in Zgierz and surrounding towns. (Zgierz is located
just 10 km north of Lodz).

Until now, the JRI-Poland database only included indices to the 1826
to 1895 records because the Zgierz Civil Records Office had delayed
transferring the post-1895 records to the Polish State Archive.
However, JRI-Poland recently received advance copies of the scans of
all Zgierz records >from 1826 through 1913. Thus, we now have the
opportunity to add indices/extracts to the newly available 1896 to
1913 records as well as directly link the search results to digital
images of all records >from 1826 to 1913.

We have now completed the initial stage of the project to index and
extract the information >from the 2772 births, 924 deaths and 576
marriages in the Russian language covering the eighteen years from
1896 through 1913.

Again, to ensure that our Zgierz the data is put online quickly, we
decided to hire professionals to extract the records - at a cost of
about $2500 to $3000. While we have raised some of the funds through
generous contributions to date, given the many active researchers with
an interest in Zgierz, it is our hope to raise the balance of needed
funds in the shortest possible time.

The second stage of the Zgierz project will be to supplement all
previously indexed records >from the earlier years (1826 to 1895) and
to link the search results to the scans of these records. Any surplus
funds raised for the first stage will be used for these additional
extractions.

We are counting on all researchers with an interest in their family's
Zgierz area roots to support this project. While a donation of any
size would be welcomed and appreciated, JRI-Poland has set a
Qualifying Contribution of NO LESS THAN $200. This will enable you to
receive full information for your family in the records of Zgierz
prior to the data being posted online. Information on how to support
the Zgierz project is available at: www.jri-poland.org/support.htm

Because of the small percentage of researchers who contribute to these
projects, we are hoping that one or two researchers will decide that
they want to make a significant difference. So, if you, your family,
or a foundation with which you are associated, are in the position to
make a substantial donation, perhaps as a challenge grant, it could
ensure that this project will be a success.

After this project is completed, the Zgierz data will be searchable in
the JRI-Poland Database and also the JewishGen All Poland Database.

Please contact me with any questions or for more information on how
you can help bring this project to fruition.

Holocaust by Bullets adds sites #poland

Tony Hausner
 

Some of you may know of the work of Father Desbois, a French
priest who has been visiting the sites of many of the mass
killings in Eastern Europe, Russia, etc. He has performed
memorial services at these sites and interviewed older residents
who were witnesses. His center is Yahad - In Unum. His book is
"Holocaust by Bullets." I have heard him speak several times
and he is an inspiring person.

They have recently added a Kalush page and will add some of
the pages below in the near future. Borschov has been there for
a while.
